Although true physical-chemical experimental proofs are lacking in the literature, numerous clinical reports have shown that many radiological manifestations of the so-called vacuum phenomenon (VP) only represent snapshots of a complex dynamic hydropneumatical continuum extending from true vacuum to gas and/or fluid and vice versa. In the great majority of(More)
Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is an unusual spindle cell neoplasm rarely described in the kidney. Usually occurring in the pleura, it has also been described in various extrapleural sites. We report a rare case of SFT of the kidney fortuitously found in a 55-year-old patient. The imaging features are illustrated. The definite diagnosis was made through(More)
Aortocaval fistula is a rare complication of abdominal aortic aneurysm involving less than 1% of all abdominal aortic aneurysms and causing severe hemodynamic derangements from a large left-to-right shunt; early diagnosis and repair results in improved morbidity and lower mortality but the diagnosis is difficult. We report a case of prompt diagnosis(More)

BACKGROUND Mesenteric panniculitis (MP) is an uncommon benign inflammatory condition of unknown etiology that involves the adipose tissue of the mesentery. I can be evaluated as a single disease with two pathological subgroups: MP, representing the very large majoritary subgroup where inflammation and fat necrosis predominate and Retractile Mesenteritis,(More)

Mesenteric panniculitis is an uncommon benign inflammatory condition of unknown etiology that involves the adipose tissue of the mesentery and for which an extremely varied terminology has been used, causing considerable confusion. It can be evaluated as a single disease with two pathological subgroups: Mesenteric Panniculitis (MP), representing the very(More)
The aim of this retrospective study was to emphasize the performances of spiral CT (HCT) and multidetector-row CT (MDCT) as very effective imaging modalities for the diagnosis of intestinal perforations caused by calcified alimentary foreign bodies. Eight sites of perforations of the ileum by ingested foreign bodies were found in seven patients--one patient(More)
We report two rare cases of prominent ossified ligamenta flava of the thoraco-lumbar junction. The first case presented with thoracic myelopathy diagnosed by spinal MRI. The definite diagnosis and the nature of the T10-T11 compressing process was established by spiral CT with multiaxial reconstruction and the patient was treated by laminectomy. In the(More)
Dissection of the cervical segment of the internal carotid artery may occur spontaneously or after trauma. We report the management of a 53-year-old right-handed man with progressive dizziness and neck pain 6 weeks after a motor vehicle collision. The clinical and neurologic examinations were normal. The CT scan led to the diagnosis of a pseudoaneurysm of(More)
