The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) characteristics of 15 cases of tuberculous (TB) spinal infection were reviewed. The commonest site was the lumbar spine (53.3%), often with three or more contiguous vertebrae involved (47%). Destruction of the vertebral body and the presence of paraspinal soft-tissue masses were noted in 73.3%. Posterior element(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the clinical and pathological characteristics of patients with intestinal tuberculosis. DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING United Christian Hospital, Hong Kong. PATIENTS Patients with intestinal tuberculosis diagnosed between January 1995 and December 2004 inclusive. RESULTS The median age of the 13 male and 9 female patients was(More)
Adrenal medullary hyperplasia is a rare cause of clinical symptoms and biochemical findings identical to pheochromocytoma occurring mostly in multiple endocrine neoplasia patients. The scenario of positive MIBG scan, but no focal lesion found on CT and MRI led to diagnostic and management difficulties. Like pheochromocytoma, surgical excision can lead to(More)
We reviewed the ultrasound (US) and computed tomography (CT) examinations of the liver in 21 patients with hepatic schistosomiasis japonicum (HSJ), to assess the role of imaging in its diagnosis. Thirteen patients had histopathological evidence of hepatic ova deposition. A 'network' pattern was present in 14 of 17 (82%) patients on US, and 'turtle-back'(More)

MATERIALS AND METHODS This study had medical ethics committee approval; informed consent was not required. Asian(More)
We report a case of a bilateral Krukenberg tumour of the ovaries arising from a primary adenocarcinoma of the duodenojejunal flexure. Adenocarcinoma of the small bowel is uncommon, representing 1% of all primary malignant tumours of the gastrointestinal tract [1]. Krukenberg tumours arising from a primary duodenojejunal adenocarcinoma are even more unusual.(More)
We report four cases of multiple symmetric lipomatosis in the Chinese population. We believe that multiple symmetric lipomatosis in the Chinese is not uncommon and may be related to the increasing incidence of alcoholism. The ultrasound appearances of these lipomatous masses are presented for the first time. Heterogeneous echogenic masses with fine fibrous(More)
A case is reported here of an ancient schwannoma in the retroperitoneum. The findings of abdominal ultrasound and CT in a patient with a retroperitoneal ancient schwannoma are presented, and the clinical and radiological features of this unusual tumour are reviewed. The presence of a large, well-delineated complex cystic mass in the deep soft tissues should(More)
Kimura's disease is found almost exclusively in Orientals. It commonly affects the head and neck region and mainly involves the major salivary glands and regional lymph nodes. Its appearances can be mistaken for malignant disease. We present two patients with Kimura's disease. In one patient the disease involved the soft tissues and parotid gland, and in(More)
