Fetus in fetu is a rare condition in which a fetiform calcified mass often is present in the abdomen of its host, a newborn or an infant. We report on a case of a 19-month-old girl whose plain abdominal radiograph, ultrasonography, and computed tomography scan revealed a mass in which the contents favor a fetus in fetu rather than a teratoma. The(More)
Although sudden cardiac death is one of the most important mode of death in Western Countries, pathologists and public health physicians have not given this problem the attention it deserves. New methods of preventing potentially fatal arrhythmias have been developed, and the accurate diagnosis of the causes of sudden cardiac death is now of particular(More)
Surveillance of colorectal cancer is currently based on dosage of tumoral markers, colonoscopy and multidetector row computed tomography. However, pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and PET–CT are two second-line useful imaging modalities to assess colorectal cancer local recurrence (LR). The anatomical information derived from MRI combined to the(More)
Two cases of invasive aspergillosis (IA) in immunocompetent patients with a fulminant fatal outcome are reported. Both patients were elderly and had a history of chronic lung disease treated with prolonged inhaled corticosteroids and a short course of systemic corticosteroids. They presented with dyspnea and fever, their respiratory function deteriorated(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of our article was to review the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of pelvic abscesses. Pelvic abscesses account for a wide range of abnormalities from various etiologies. CONCLUSION MRI is being increasingly used for pelvic exploration. Radiologists must thus be aware of their features and characteristics.
Disease in the abdomen and pelvis is frequent in patients with metastatic melanoma (MM). Multidetector row computed tomography is the imaging modality of choice for diagnosis and follow-up of MM. However, positron emission tomographic scan may be used as well as other newer imaging modalities, particularly for imaging of the abdominal and pelvic metastases.(More)
Dramatic advances in image quality over the past few years have made diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) a promising tool for rectal lesion evaluation. DW-MRI derives its image contrast from differences in the motion of water molecules between tissues. Such imaging can be performed quickly without the need for the administration of(More)
