Giant uterine leiomyomas are extremely rare neoplasms and are challenging both diagnostically and therapeutically. A 49-year-old premenopausal female presented at our Department complaining of abdominal pain and distention for several years. Ultrasound (US), color Doppler US, abdominal computed tomography imaging after administration of contrast material,(More)
OBJECTIVE Neonatal sepsis remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in newborns. The chemokine CXCL12 and its receptor CXCR4 are now known to play an important role in inflammatory states. However, it is unclear how chemokines respond to late-onset neonatal sepsis. METHODS Patients were classified into the groups of septic and non-septic ones.(More)
PURPOSE In this study, we aimed to evaluate the capability of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) in differentiation between benign and malignant etiology of obstructive uropathy. MATERIALS AND METHODS DWI was performed in 41 patients with hydronephrotic kidneys and 26 healthy volunteers. MR imaging was performed using a 1.5 T whole-body(More)
Classification of vascular anomalies (VAs) is challenging due to overlapping clinical symptoms, confusing terminology in the literature and unfamiliarity with this complex entity. It is important to recognize that VAs include two distinct entities, vascular tumours (VTs) and vascular malformations (VaMs). In this article, we describe SE Mitchell Vascular(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of placental strain ratio (SR) values measured by real-time sonoelastography (SE) in the second trimester in the prediction of spontaneous preterm birth (sPTB). METHODS This study included 70 pregnant women who applied to our clinic for routine second-trimester screening. Placental SR(More)
The objective of our study was to prospectively evaluate the diagnostic performance of strain elastography for differentiation between renal cell carcinomas (RCCs) and transitional cell carcinomas (TCCs) of kidney. A total of 99 consecutive patients who were referred to our hospital because of a newly diagnosed solid renal mass suspicious for malignancy on(More)
BACKGROUND Neonatal sepsis is an important cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality in the neonatal intensive care unit. Soluble triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-1 (sTREM-1) has been evaluated in sepsis and septic shock, and it was found to be valuable in distinguishing septic cases from nonseptic cases. Endocan is constitutively expressed by(More)
A 46-year-old woman with Gaucher's disease (GD) consulted our clinic for abdominopelvic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as physical examination had revealed hepatosplenomegaly. Upper abdominal MRI showed massive hepatosplenomegaly and innumerable hypointense splenic nodules on T1-weighted images. Diffusion-weighted MRI (DW-MRI) and magnetic resonance(More)
BACKGROUND Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections are the leading cause of infectious hearing loss and central nervous system disease among children worldwide. In this study, we aimed to determine the birth prevalence of congenital CMV infection in live-born infants in Turkey. METHODS In total, 944 consecutive live-born infants born from 926 pregnant women were(More)
