Hydatid cysts of the musculoskeletal system are rare. Unusual magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of an infected primary hydatid cyst of the biceps femoris muscle are presented in a 40-year-old man on hemodialysis for chronic renal failure. No daughter cysts were present within the mother cyst cavity, but there was a fatty nodule which has not(More)
Osteoid osteoma in the base of the coracoid process of the scapula is very rare and diagnosis and treatment often is delayed. A lesion in this atypical location may seem surgically unreachable. This report is of a case of osteoid osteoma in the base of coracoid process in a 14-year-old female. The lesion had been diagnosed as a nontumorous condition and(More)

Various causes of downhill varices have been reported, but mediastinal tumor is the most common responsible lesion. Castleman's disease, or angiofollicular(More)
Esthesioneuroblastoma is a rare tumor of neural crest origin that arises in the nasal cavity. There is still no consensus on the optimal treatment for this neoplasm, and the literature contains very few accounts of endoscopic excision in these cases. We described a case report of 12-year-old girl with esthesioneuroblastoma that was confined to the nasal(More)

Bronchial compression due to pulmonary artery dilation is an important problem in infants with congenital heart disease, and can complicate the postoperative course. In recent years, airway stenting has become a popular treatment for these cases. We achieved success with endobronchial stenting in a two-month-old infant with bronchial compression caused by a(More)

The initial interpretation based on the adnexal masses, ascites, omental and peritoneal thickening, and elevated serum CA-125 levels led to an erroneous preliminary diagnosis of disseminated ovarian cancer. In both patients, histologic examination showed tuberculosis. The(More)
