Sixty-nine cases of acute mastoiditis were managed at the Kaplan Hospital in Israel during a 10-year period. About two thirds (68%) recovered with conservative therapy consisting of wide myringotomy and intravenous antimicrobial therapy, usually ampicillin and cloxacillin. One third (22 patients) were managed surgically by complete mastoidectomy.(More)
IgG4 sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-SC) is an immune-mediated process that results in inflammation and fibrosis of the pancreatobiliary tract. Although IgG4-SC is predominantly associated with autoimmune pancreatitis, IgG4-SC as its own entity can be difficult to diagnose. Patients with IgG4-SC are typically men over the age of 60, and present clinically with(More)
Anorectal disorders are a common cause of presentation to the emergency department (ED). While the most frequently encountered anorectal conditions, such as hemorrhoids and anal fissures, are relatively benign and do not require imaging for diagnosis or management, there are multiple potentially life threatening anorectal conditions for which imaging is an(More)
Rhinoscleroma is increasing in incidence in the United States. It should be considered in patients who are immigrants from endemic countries and present with nasal polyposis that exhibits significant adherence to the nasal septum and relative sparing of the sinuses. Fluoroquinolones are emerging as the adjunctive antibiotic treatment of choice to complement(More)
Review the multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) findings of transition zone (TZ) prostate cancer (PCa) using T2-weighted imaging (T2WI), diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), and dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) MRI and to integrate mpMRI findings with clinical history, laboratory values, and histopathology. TZ prostate tumors are challenging to detect clinically and at(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma is the fifth most common cancer and third most common cause of cancer death worldwide (1). Whole genome studies have identified subclasses of hepatocellular carcinoma with worse prognosis (2), including tumours with a progenitor cell profile (3). Hepatic progenitor cells are bipotential liver parenchymal cells that can differentiate(More)
Sialorrhea (drooling) is most commonly seen in children with cerebral palsy or mental retardation. Surgical procedures for the control of sialorrhea include salivary gland excision, parasympathetic nerve section, and salivary duct ligation and/or rerouting. Eighteen children between the ages of 5 and 17 years underwent bilateral submandibular gland excision(More)
