Intrathoracic extramedullary haemopoiesis is a rare condition accompanying chronic haematologic diseases. A 25 year old male beta-thalassaemia intermedia patient with bilateral posterior mediastinal masses is reported. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging provide detailed information for evaluation of thalassaemia and similar haemolytic… (More)
Although there are numerous communications between the portal and systemic venous systems, intrahepatic portosystemic venous shunts are not frequently encountered in clinical practice. Here we report a patient who presented with spastic paraparesis, who was found to have chronic liver disease with tubular intrahepatic portacaval shunting.

A 31-year-old-man with a known diagnosis of beta-thalassaemia was referred with focal back pain. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed diffuse bone-marrow changes, thoracic paraspinal masses and lobulated… (More)
