Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare soft-tissue neoplasm found mainly in the female pelvis. Approximately 130 cases have been reported in the literature to date. In most cases treatment consists of surgical resection, but local recurrence rates remain high (36-72%). Therefore, long-term follow up is necessary and magnetic resonance imaging seems to be the(More)
We report a new case of a brucellar liver abscess (brucelloma) in a young woman without previous remote brucellosis who presented with pronounced systemic and mild local symptoms. Brucelloma is the result of calcification of a granoulomatous reaction induced by persistent Brucella in macrophages. It represents a rare manifestation that follows previously(More)
A rare case of an incidental nonfunctioning mediastinal paragaglioma is presented. The diagnosis of aorticosympathetic paraganglioma was established by histological examination after surgical removal of the tumor. The appearance of this rare tumor on multidetector coronary angiography is demonstrated and the differential diagnosis is discussed.
268 Tech Coloproctol (2008) 12:267–271 shows that mobilization of the low rectum after a long course of preoperative chemo-radiotherapy might sometimes carry a major surgical difficulty. Extreme fibrosis of the surrounding tissues can happen as an overreaction to radiation therapy in some patients. This fibrosis may force to a loss of the TME plan and may(More)
AIMS The purpose of this study was to assess the incidence and predictors of graft failure prior to discharge. Multi-slice computed tomography has the ability to evaluate graft patency in a non-invasive way. METHODS AND RESULTS Of 145 consecutive patients who were screened, 73 were included in the study (78% male, mean age 65 years). A total of 206 grafts(More)
Anorexia nervosa (AN), usually seen in young girls, is characterised by severe emaciation induced by self-imposed starvation. Enlargement of the ventricular system and sulci has been reported, as has high signal on T2-weighted images. We present a case with atrophic changes and high signal on T2-weighted images, which resolved completely following weight(More)
