The application of radioisotope scanning to osseous involvement from systemic sarcoidosis has been infrequently described in the scientific literature. Most commonly, the small bones of the hands and feet are affected if sarcoidosis involves the skeleton. Nonetheless, there are also occasional manifestations of sarcoid in the skull, long bones, and(More)
The use of an intrauterine device (IUD) is associated with the presence of actinomyces in the female genital tract. Since IUD use is currently so prevalent, IUD-related pelvic inflammatory disease occasionally spreads to the rest of the abdomen. Two patients with abdominal actinomycosis in association with an IUD illustrate the problem; we review the(More)
The results from an ultrasound study performed on an 11-year-old boy, who had several weeks of intermittent abdominal pain, showed a nonperistaltic loop of bowel near the umbilicus, which suggested either an internal hernia or a diverticulum. Tc-99m pertechnetate imaging showed a focal collection near the umbilicus, which was consistent with a Meckel's(More)
We evaluated the radiologic studies of 23 patients with surgically or autopsy-documented gallbladder perforation. Extravasation was shown by cholescintigraphy and cholangiography in seven patients and corresponded to free perforation or large pericholecystic loculation. In 16 patients, ultrasonography and computed tomography detected fluid and abscesses(More)
Three new cases of cleidocranial dysostosis with hearing loss are reported in this paper. The significant points concerning this association are: (1) the hearing deficit is predominantly a middle ear conduction problem secondary to structural abnormalities of the ossicles; (2) there is sometimes a small bone conduction deficit indicating either a cochlear(More)
