Black widow spiders can cause variable clinical scenarios from local damage to very serious conditions including death. Acute myocardial damage is rarely observed and its prognostic significance is not known. We report a rare case of a 35-year-old man who developed an acute myocarditis with cardiogenic pulmonary edema requiring mechanical ventilation caused… (More)
The authors report about 40 cases of Behçet's disease with vascular involvement, i.e. 32% of a 125 case series. The results were marked by the high frequency of venous involvement (36 cases, including 28 thrombophlebitis of the deep trunks of the lower limbs) and the rarity of arterial involvement (6 cases). Arterial and venous involvements were associated… (More)
The authors report the case of a 13-year-old girl in whom the diagnosis of intradural hydatid cyst was suspected on CT scan and MRI and confirmed at surgery. The interest of this case is related to the extremely rare location and its severe prognostic. CT scan and MRI can easily make an anatomic and topographic diagnosis of the intradural hydatid cyst.
The rupture of hydatid cysts into the abdominal aorta is an exceptional and serious complication of the hydatid disease. We report a case of hydatid false-aneurysm of the abdominal aorta, explored by US Doppler, C.T. and arteriography.
Glomus tumor is an uncommon benign neuromyoarterial tumor. It most frequently involves the fingers, and only rarely involves other sites. The clinical, imaging and therapeutic considerations regarding a glomangioma of the leg in a 65-year-old-man are reviewed.
Persistent sciatic is a vascular malformation resulting in the embryo from the preferential growth of the ischiatic posterior axis remaining atrophic. We report here two cases of unilateral, complete and incompleted, persistent sciatic arteries, complicated by buttock aneurysm.
