Serial abdominal computed tomography (CT) scans have been performed in 15 patients with biopsy-proven idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis. Twelve patients had abdominal CT both before diagnosis and at a variable time later. All 12 patients showed a decrease in the size of the retroperitoneal mass at follow-up, although two had not been treated with(More)
Intra-abdominal desmoid tumours represent a major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), and such patients are also liable to develop musculoskeletal desmoids. We have reviewed the CT appearances of 44 desmoid lesions (28 intra-abdominal and 16 musculoskeletal) in 20 patients with FAP. We found a considerable(More)
In a survey carried out to determine the incidence of Duchenne muscular dystrophy in the South East of Scotland, 47 cases were ascertained among 177,413 live male births for the years 1953 to 1968. The overall incidence is 1 case in 3,775 live male births (26.5 +/- 3.2 X 10(-5)). This incidence figure has been compared with those reported in nine other(More)
We reviewed the prevalence of avascular necrosis (AVN) in a series of patients with sickle cell disease, using radiography and magnetic resonance imaging. We found AVN of at least one hip in 11 of 27 patients (41%). This is a significantly greater prevalence than reported. MRI was not as helpful in patients with sickle cell disease as it is in patients with(More)
Three patients with known primary malignancy and a normal chest radiograph are presented. Computed tomographic scans viewed on 'lung' settings showed a solitary mass lesion simulating a neoplastic mass in the posterior costophrenic recess in each patient. These lesions in fact were small herniations of abdominal fat into the chest through diaphragmatic(More)
