Carcinoid tumor of the pancreas is rare. Moreover, obstructive pancreatitis secondary to a pancreatic carcinoid tumor is extremely rare. We report a case of pancreatic carcinoid tumor in a 50-year-old male who presented with pancreatitis. On multislice helical computed tomography, the main pancreatic duct was obstructed by a small round tumor, and the main(More)
Interstitial pulmonary emphysema is a well-documented complication of assisted mechanical ventilation in premature infants with respiratory distress syndrome. Localized persistent interstitial pulmonary emphysema (LPIPE) confined to a single lobe was incidentally presented in a 4-day-old female infant. This patient was a normal full-term baby with no(More)
Pertussis is generally considered a childhood disease [1], but recent studies have demonstrated it is a common cause of persistent cough in adults. Possible explanations for the recent increase in reports of adult pertussis include waning vaccine-induced immunity, the development of sensitive diagnostic methods like PCR, changes in surveillance systems, and(More)
We report a case of lipoleiomyoma which arose in retroperitoneum and presented with progressively distended abdomen in a 56-yr-old woman. The tumor was well encapsulated and consisted of two components, benign smooth muscle cells and mature adipose tissue without any atypia. It is likely to be mistaken as extrarenal angiomyolipoma, well-differentiated(More)
The evaluation of prognostic factors in infants with critical stenosis of the aortic valve and intact ventricular septum is often misleading due to a complex interaction among lesions in the mitral and aortic valves, and the left ventricular myocardium. The clinical parameters on the left ventricular function, such as ejection fraction and left ventricular(More)
provided the original work is properly cited. CC Central venous catheterization (CVC) is vital for anesthetic management in pediatric patients undergoing major surgery [1]. The internal jugular vein (IJV), subclavian vein (SCV), and femoral vein are the most commonly used sites for CVC. Unfortunately , the failure rate and incidence of complications are(More)
