Alzheimer's disease and cerebral amyloid angiopathies (CAA) are clinically heterogeneous diseases, but pathogenically related by the deposition of beta A4-amyloid in the brain in the form of neuritic plaques and/or vascular infiltrates. Antibodies directed against the N-terminal region of the predicted sequence of the beta A4 amyloid protein precursor (APP)(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)
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)
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)
Extrinsic and intrinsic pathologic processes involving the spinal cord can affect its gross morphologic appearance. Contour-related abnormalities of the spinal cord can be determined by both noninvasive and invasive imaging techniques. Detailing internal dysmorphism of the spinal cord is more difficult to determine because the internal architecture of the(More)
