Idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis (IPH) is a rare cause of diffuse alveolar hemorrhage characterized by abnormal deposition of hemosiderin iron in the macrophages of alveoli. Most cases occur in children. In adults, IPH is rare: almost 10 cases reported during the late 10 years. We report the case of a 20-year-old-girl with IPH. There was no evidence of(More)
Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors are ubiquitous but most frequently affect the lung. The imaging features are non-specific but the diagnosis may be suggested in the presence of solitary pulmonary nodule or mass in children or young adults. The tumor may appear locally and regionally aggressive suggesting malignancy. Diagnostic confirmation is obtained(More)
Tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica (TO) is a rare benign disorder affecting the trachea and occasionally the bronchi. We report a case of TO presenting as a respiratory insufficiency. Chest radiograph revealed an irregular narrowing of the intra thoracic trachea and a parenchymal consolidation of the left lower lobe. Magnetic resonance examination of(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this study was to describe the different radiological features of the hydatid cyst of the mediastinum. MATERIALS AND METHODS We conducted a retrospective study on 14 patients (seven women, seven men), diagnosed with mediastinal hydatid cyst, aged 13-67 years (mean, 48 years) over a period of 16 years in our hospital where 71 cases(More)
PURPOSE Amyloidosis involvement of mediastinal nodes is rare. Isolated pseudotumoral involvement without extra-thoracic disease is a diagnostic challenge and typically raises concern for underlying malignancy. We present 3 cases of pseudotumoral mediastinal amyloidosis. METHODS We report the cases of 3 patients presenting with recent onset of respiratory(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiac haemangioma was first described in 1893. It is an infrequent and benign neoplasm which accounts for about 2.8% of all benign primary cardiac tumours, arising from the cardiac ventricles, valves, atria and rarely the epicardium. METHODS AND RESULTS We report the case of a 24-year-old woman with a cardiac haemangioma detected by(More)
OBJECTIVE Intrathoracic textiloma or gossypiboma, a retained surgical sponge in the thoracic cavity, is an exceptional but serious complication following thoracic or abdominal surgery. The purpose of this work is to highlight the topographic features of thoracic textiloma and to describe imaging aspects, and, particularly, computed tomography (CT) features.(More)
INTRODUCTION The successive occurrence of pericardial tamponade and myocarditis during a Churg-Strauss syndrome is exceptionally described. We report a patient in whom pericardial tamponade and myocarditis were the presenting manifestation of a Churg-Strauss syndrome. CASE REPORT A 58-year-old woman was admitted because of alteration of the clinical(More)
BACKGROUND Angiomyxolipoma is a benign tumor considered as a variant of lipoma and that occurs mainly in the subcutis. The mediastinal location hasn't been previously reported. AIM To describe the radiological features of this tumor in its posterior mediastinal location and to confront them to the pathological features. CASE REPORT We report the case of(More)
BACKGROUND Lung cancer is the most common malignancy diagnosed in patients with venous thrombo-embolism (VTE). AIM To investigate clinical, biological, radiological features and survival of lung cancer patients with VTE. METHODS Retrospective case-control study investigating biologic, clinical course and survival of 25 patients lung cancers with VTE(More)
