BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the integration of ultrasound (US) findings with Alvarado score in diagnosing or excluding acute appendicitis. METHODS Data were analyzed in 122 pediatric patients with suspected appendicitis who had undergone US. The US findings were classified into four groups, and the patients were classified into(More)
While intestinal tumors are rare, small intestinal lipomas are even more uncommon benign neoplasms. They are usually asymptomatic, but lipomas larger than 2 cm may become symptomatic due to obstruction, bleeding, or intussusception. In this paper, US and CT findings of a lipoma located in the terminal ileum and causing ileocecal intussusception were(More)
Benign intratesticular lesions are rare; thus, radiological diagnosis is important to avoid unnecessary surgical intervention. Testicular adrenal rest tumors (TART) are the nodular testicular lesions deriving from the adrenal remnant tissue reported in patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia. We present ultrasonographic (US) and magnetic resonance(More)
Hepatoid adenocarcinoma (HAC) is a very rare type of extrahepatic adenocarcinoma which has a clinicopathologic and morphologic similarity to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Although it is not common, it can be seen in organs other than the liver. The correct diagnosis can be a challenge because of its clinically similarity to HCC and the diagnosis is(More)
Teratomas are a type of germ-cell tumour which may contain embryological tissues from more than one germ-cell layer, usually occurring in the gonads. Primary retroperitoneal teratomas account for 1-11% of retroperitoneal neoplasms and are most commonly found in neonates and young adults. In the clinical literature, retroperitoneal mature cystic teratoma(More)
A surgical sponge accidentally left in a surgical wound, called a textiloma or gossypiboma, is underreported in literature due to medicolegal consequences. Abdominal textiloma may be asymptomatic or present serious gastrointestinal complications such as bowel obstruction, perforation or fistula formation because of misdiagnosis. It may mimic abscess(More)
Rendu-Osler-Weber disease is a rare autosomal dominant disorder. Hepatic involvement manifests itself as vascular, parenchymal, and biliary lesions with characteristic telangiectasias and vascular shunts. In a 37-year-old female patient, dynamic contrast-enhanced upper abdominal CT and MRI were performed. CT and MRI revealed dilated celiac trunk and hepatic(More)
