PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Echinococciasis or hydatid disease is a cosmopolite antropozoonosis common to humans and several mammal species. The disease results from the development of the larval or hydatid form of the canine tenia (Echinococcus granulosis) in the organism. Hydatic cysts are uncommonly found in muscles, even in endemic zones. The purpose of this(More)
The hydatic cyst is a parasitic disease caused by the development in man of the larval form of echinococcus granulosus. All parts of the body may be involved, but the liver and lungs are the main locations of the disease. The bone site is rare, accounting for 0.9 to 2% of all hydatic lesions. Between 1982 and 1988, we have compiled 12 cases of hydatic(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Several therapeutic options have been proposed for the treatment of Kienbock's disease, including shortening of the radius. We report results in a series of 31 cases treated by diaphyseal radial shortening with a mean 6-year follow-up (range 1 - 18 years). MATERIAL AND METHODS The series included 19 women and 12 men, mean age, 26(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Supramalleolar fractures are generally considered to be a difficult surgical challenge because they occur in a area where the tibia lies superficially with a precarious blood supply to the skin, exposing to the risk of infection and necrosis after internal fixation. These fractures are also situated close to the tibiotalar joint making(More)
Septic arthritis of the pubis symphysis is rare and difficult to diagnose. The objective of our study was to describe the biological, clinical, radiological and therapeutic aspects of this disease. This is a retrospective study of 4 cases of septic arthritis of the pubic symphysis collected in the Department of Rheumatology and Orthopaedics in Sousse in(More)
Congenital constriction of the limbs is usually due to amniotic band syndrome, which often causes damage to the skin and soft tissues. We report an unusual case in which a neonate had recent fractures of both leg bones with an amniotic band encircling the limb. Non-operative treatment was successful. Challenges to the management of neonatal limb(More)
INTRODUCTION Tuberculous psoas abscess outside of locoregional causes is uncommon and can cause a problem of differential diagnosis. EXEGESIS We report a case of unilateral tuberculous abscess of the psoas which first clinical and radiological features presented like a retroperitoneal tumor. Exploration laparotomy discovered a bulky abscess of the left(More)
Bone giant cell tumor (GCT) is a rare, generally benign and locally aggressive tumor. It accounts for about 5% of all primary bone tumors and is located preferentially on the epiphyseal long bone. Ankle localization is rare. We present two cases of GCT of the lower end of tibia, presenting as gradually increasing pain and swelling in the tibial pilon over(More)
BACKGROUND The treatment of isolated internal tibiofemoral knee osteoarthritis on young and active patients is controversial. This treatment can be a high tibial osteotomy or a joint replacement that can be a partial unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) or total knee replacement (TKR). The aim of our study is the long-term evaluation of functional(More)
