Isolated torsion of the fallopian tube is a rare clinical entity, especially in adolescents and at menarche. The diagnosis is essentially made at laparoscopy or at laparotomy because of nonspecific clinical signs. We present a case of isolated tubal torsion in a 12-year-old girl a few days after menarche, highlighting the sonographic and MR findings. Both(More)
After briefly reviewing some of the problems relating to an early identification of synovial pathology, the authors have pointed out the actual role of telethermography and arthrography, resulting from their diagnostic experience. The two techniques were applied to a group of 40 patients affected with rheumatoid arthritis and were found to be particularly(More)
Renal vein thrombosis and adrenal hemorrhage can both be encountered in the neonatal period and they may occur at the same time. Inferior vena cava thrombosis can complicate some cases. These diseases can be easily diagnosed by means of ultrasound. The authors present 4 cases in which newborns were affected by renal vein thrombosis associated with adrenal(More)
Uterus didelphys with obstructed hemivagina and ipsilateral renal agenesis is a rare entity, sometimes referred to as Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome (HWW). It usually presents after menarche with progressive pelvic pain, sometimes with regular menses, and a palpable mass due to hemihaematocolpos. The diagnosis is generally made only if the suspicion of(More)
INTRODUCTION Acute scrotum in the pediatric age is mainly related to surgical causes. Spermatic cord torsion and inguinoscrotal hernia must be ruled out first, because of the possible ischemic damage to gonadal tissue and therefore surgery is sometimes performed directly, thus representing also a diagnostic tool. Spermatic cord torsion is found in two age(More)
The main skeletal abnormalities in β-thalassemia are widening of medullary spaces, rarefaction of bone trabeculae, thinning of cortical bone, and perpendicular periosteal spiculation. Premature epiphyseal fusion (PEF) and extramedullary hematopoiesis (EH) are found, though more rarely. The incidence of PEF and EH in 64 patients affected by β-thalassemia is(More)
Computed Tomography (CT) is not yet widely employed in the evaluation of temporal bone diseases in pediatric patients. Our experience is reported in the study of branchial otodysplasias (10 cases, 15 ears) by means of a high-resolution program. Indications, advantages, limitations and risks of this technique are discussed. Some technical details are(More)
