We performed whole-exome sequencing of a family with autosomal dominant Dandy-Walker malformation and occipital cephaloceles and detected a mutation in the extracellular matrix (ECM) protein-encoding gene NID1. In a second family, protein interaction network analysis identified a mutation in LAMC1, which encodes a NID1-binding partner. Structural modeling(More)
Multi-detector computed tomography has become a first-line imaging modality for the evaluation of small bowel disease. Its high speed and resolution ensure excellent imaging of the small bowel with simultaneous evaluation of the lumen and wall, adjoining mesentery, and extraluminal structures in the abdominal cavity. Optimal luminal distension is an(More)
Ortner's syndrome (left recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy caused by cardiovascular pathology) is described in literature as occurring secondary to a variety of conditions. Spontaneous aneurysm of ductus arteriosus is a rare cause of this condition. We present a case where an adult patient with an aneurysm of the ductus arteriosus presented for the first time(More)

Comprehensive pre-LDN donor evaluation includes assessment of renal morphology including pelvi-calyceal and vascular(More)
Cysticercosis is now seen as a global disease affecting the whole world, and clinicians should be aware of the typical clinical presentations and imaging findings of rice-like or starry sky appearance in order to avoid misdiagnosis and thereby instituting appropriate treatment.
