Percutaneous aspiration of purely cystic liver lesions was performed in 15 patients aged 11-56 years. After aspiration under guidance with computed tomography (CT) in 12 patients, a membrane that is diagnostic for hydatid disease was visible in the lumen of the cyst on CT scans. Hypertonic saline was injected in the cystic cavities of these patients as a(More)
Behçet's disease is a rare form of vasculitis of obscure etiology. Any large or small artery, vein, or organ may be involved in an unpredictable combination. Intrathoracic manifestations of Behçet's disease consist mainly of thromboembolism of the superior vena cava and/or other mediastinal veins; aneurysms of the aorta and pulmonary arteries; pulmonary(More)
BACKGROUND In recent years, white blood cells (WBCs) and their subtypes have been studied in relation to inflammation. The aim of our study was to assess the relationship between neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and ankylosing spondylitis (AS). MATERIALS AND METHODS We enrolled a total of 177 patients, 96 AS and 81 healthy controls. Complete blood count,(More)
Twenty-eight patients with colon carcinoma (excluding the recto-sigmoid region) underwent preoperative staging with computed tomography (CT). The CT had a sensitivity and a specificity of 60 and 67% for detection of extramural invasion, 75% sensitivity and specificity for lymph node metastases and a sensitivity of 87% and specificity of 95% for liver(More)
We reviewed the CT findings of 13 patients with histologically proved alveolar echinococcosis of the liver. Seven of these patients had hilar involvement, which caused dilatation of intrahepatic bile ducts and invasion of the portal vein or portal branches. In two of these patients we found marked atrophy of the right lobe and in one patient marked atrophy(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine the electrophysiological consequences of neuromuscular and central nervous system involvement in a group of patients presented with the neurological complications of a long-term hunger strike (HS). METHODS Motor and sensory nerve conduction (NCV), F wave, somatosensory evoked potential (SEP) and motor(More)
In juvenile patients with a severe and longstanding iron deficiency disease several abnormal features such as delayed growth, retarded development and maturation are displayed. The roentgenological examination of the sella turcica in 81 patients and the determination of the sellar size in 73 cases, including 40 men and 33 women, by employing the method of(More)
