We present unusual imaging findings in the liver of a patient with Wilson's disease . On US, the liver contours were irregular and its echogenicity was increased with multiple, small hypo- and hyperechoic nodules. Prominent perihepatic fat layer was noted to be increased in thickness. On CT and MR, multiple, small, enhancing nodules were detected in the(More)
Percutaneous treatment of a huge congenital splenic cyst in a 23-year-old man is presented. The cyst had been catheterized and drained two times within a 3-month period without injecting any sclerosing agent into the cavity. On the third attempt, catheter drainage and injection of alcohol into the cyst cavity were performed because of insufficient response(More)
Background: To evaluate the effectiveness of percutaneous treatment of renal hydatid cysts. Methods: Four male and one female (14–52 years old, mean = 37 years) patients with five renal cysts were treated percutaneously. All five cysts from the patients were pure fluid collections, which were consistent with type I hydatid cysts according to Gharbi's(More)
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of percutaneous drainage of pulmonary hydatid cysts. Eleven pulmonary hydatid cysts in eight patients were drained percutaneously after 1–2 years of treatment with mebendazole (50 mg/kg/day). Percutaneous needle aspiration was carried out under ultra-sound (US) in six patients and computed tomography (CT) in two patients.(More)
We report a unique case of exacerbation of renal lymphangiomatosis during pregnancy which was managed percutaneously until delivery. Renal lymphangiomatosis is a very rare benign disorder that might cause abdominal pain and rarely hypertension and hematuria. Surgical treatment options may result in nephrectomy. Percutaneous drainage of symptomatic renal(More)
In the past, choledochal cysts had been infrequently diagnosed prior to surgical exploration for obstructive jaundice. However, with the advance of imaging modalities, preoperative diagnosis is usually apparent. We evaluated the radiological findings of choledochal cysts in 14 patients in whom ultrasonography (US) or computed tomography (CT) were mainly(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to determine whether the C-arm computed tomography (CT) blood volume (BV) imaging of hepatic tumors performed with a new prototype software is capable of measuring the BV changes in response to hepatic arterial treatments and to validate these quantitative measurements with commercially available multidetector computed tomography (MDCT)(More)
Duplication of the gallbladder, a rare congenital anomaly, is important in clinical practice because it may cause some clinical, surgical, and diagnostic problems. We present imaging findings of a double gallbladder including coronal reformatted computed tomographic sections, to our knowledge not previously presented, and discuss the radiologic signs that(More)
This article presents a case of leiomyosarcomatosis with widespread lesions involving the soft tissues and the most unlikely organs such as thyroid and salivary glands, pancreas, ligamentum teres, bladder wall, and bones without lymph node or distant metastasis. The CT and US findings of this rare phenomenon are discussed with regard to the literature.
Behçet's disease is a multisystem disorder characterized by recurrent orogenital ulcerations and uveitis. Vascular involvement can include both arteries and veins, with a preponderance of venous lesions. Aneurysms of splanchnic arteries due to Behçet' s disease have been rarely reported. We present an unusual case of superior mesenteric artery aneurysm due(More)
