Intramuscular vascular malformations are unusual tumors in the head and neck region. Less than 1% of vasoformative tumors throughout the body occur in skeletal muscle; 15% of them arise in head and neck musculature. Masseter muscle is the most frequent site for such vascular malformations; it accounts for approximately 5% of all intramuscular vascular… (More)
A 21-year-old woman presented with a 2-day history of acute abdominal pain. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) showed a perforation in the lesser curve of the stomach. The patient suffered a bout of hematemesis, following which an endoscopy showed a bleeding blood vessel at the edge of the perforation. We performed an emergency distal gastrectomy,… (More)
Leiomyosarcoma of the seminal vesicle is exceedingly rare. The ultrasound and CT findings in a recent case are described. These consist of a mass causing enlargement of the right seminal vesicle with involvement of the urinary bladder and prostate. The prostate gland was displaced inferiorly and to the left. Surgical resection and subsequent histology… (More)
Serous cystadenocarcinoma of the pancreas is a rare but well-established entity. The origin of this disorder is speculative, and its evolution remains unclear. On imaging, the malignant behavior of the tumor is best supported by local invasion and/or distant metastasis. The histological characteristics of serous cystadenocarcinoma are indistinguishable from… (More)
Filariasis is an endemic infection seen in the tropical and subtropical regions of the world, presenting with lymphatic dysfunction in the form of lymphocele, hydrocele, chyluria, or groin lymphadenovarix. We report a rare presentation of filariasis as an intra-abdominal cystic mass.
Fetus-in-fetu (FIF) is a rare congenital condition first described in early nineteenth century. In this anomaly, a malformed parasitic twin is found within the body of its partner. Less than 100 cases have been described in the English-language literature.
Liver abscess is a rare condition in neonates and its diagnosis requires a high degree of suspicion. CT scan and ultrasound are the most sensitive diagnostic modalities for detecting hepatic abscess. Portal vein thrombosis and cavernoma formation are rare complications following neonatal liver abscess and sepsis. We describe the case of two neonates with… (More)
Foreign body aspiration into the airways is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in pediatric patients, especially in children below 3 years of age. In the absence of clear history, the correct diagnosis is often missed. The clinical features may mimic asthma or pneumonia, resulting in delayed diagnosis. Cough or wheezing of sudden onset, reduced… (More)
Pancreatopleural fistula is an uncommon complication of pancreatitis. The presence of a fistulous tract, although not mandatory for diagnosis of pancreatopleural fistula, has been documented previously with contrast-enhanced radiography and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. We report the case of a pancreatopleural fistula with right pleural… (More)
