Lymphocytic hypophysitis is a rare inflammatory disease of the pituitary gland which may be related to an autoimmune process. Only twenty cases are reported in male. Patients usually present with symptoms of an expanding intrasellar mass or varying degrees of hypopituitarism. Most of the cases are misconsidered preoperatively as pituitary adenomas. We(More)
Although rare, the possibility of pituitary tuberculoma should be considered in the diagnosis of non-pituitary intrasellar masses, especially in an endemic area and if radiologic imaging shows pituitary stalk thickening. We describe the case of a 52-year-old patient who presented tuberculous meningitis complicated by a pituitary abscess. He was treated with(More)
BACKGROUND Rupture of hydatid cyst in the digestive tract is a rare complication even in endemic areas. AIM Authors report a case of a hydatid cyst of the left hepatic lobe ruptured in the duodenum CASE was discovered at the occasion of epigastric pain and vomiting. Ct-scan revealed presence of air in a calcified hydatid cyst of the left liver lobe and(More)
Neural fibrolipoma or fibrolipomatous hamartoma is an uncommon benign tumor that usually arises in the median nerve. Fibrofatty tissue proliferates around the nerve and infiltrates the epineurium and perineurium. We report a case of fibrolipomatous hamartoma of the left median nerve in an 18-year-old woman. Our objective was to describe the pathognomonic(More)
The authors report a case of cervico-thoracic region hydatid cyst suspected by the presence of a palpable right lower neck mass. This location is very rare. Neck ultrasound and computed tomography showed the cyst. Magnetic resonance imaging can be useful for diagnosis and provided the best anatomo-topographic evaluation before surgery.
INTRODUCTION Necrotizing fasciitis is a rapidly progressive and often fatal infection of the soft-tissue fascia deep to the skin but superficial to the muscles. We report a case of necrotizing fasciitis of the anterior chest wall complicating a percutaneous needle biopsy. CASE A 49-year-old diabetic patient, presented persistent excavated right pulmonary(More)
Pituitary-hypothalamic axis Langerhans cell histiocytosis is an uncommon entity. It is a rare disease in adults. The CT and MR study provides us the best anatomo-topographic evaluation and determine the precise size of the lesion which are necessary to the treatment. We report a case of hypothalamic involvement by Langerhans cell histiocytosis accompanied(More)
Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) is a benign lymphoproliferative disorder characterized by cervical lymph node enlargement with a consistent risk of airway compression and esthetic damage. Extranodal localizations are also described. There is no therapeutic consensus for pediatric forms of RDD. Through 2 pediatric cases with nodal involvement in 1 patient and a(More)
