Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) is an acute viral disease characterized by fever, hemorrhage and renal failure. Among the various hemorrhagic complications of HFRS, spontaneous rupture of the kidney and perirenal hematoma are very rare findings. We report here on a case of HFRS complicated by massive perirenal hematoma, and this was treated(More)
Papillary fibroelastoma is a rare benign cardiac tumor that represents 10% of all primary cardiac tumors. Diagnosis is accomplished incidentally by echocardiography that is usually performed for another purpose. Most papillary fibroelastomas are asymptomatic, but the lesions are recognized as a cause of embolisms. To the best of our knowledge, there has(More)
Salmonella typhi splenic abscesses are a very rare complication of typhoid fever. Splenectomy is the standard surgical treatment for these lesions. But these days, with improvements in imaging techniques, percutaneous drainage of splenic abscesses has been demonstrated to be one of the alternative treatment in selected cases. We report the case of a 7(More)
We report two cases of hepatic metastases from choriocarcinoma in women of childbearing age in whom imaging studies performed at presentation revealed the presence of liver masses, and who had clinically progressive anemia or intraabdominal hemorrhage. CT demonstrated heterogeneously enhanced liver masses. Characteristic angiographic findings included(More)
To study the medial extent of the posterior renal fascia and the perirenal space, the authors dissected two cadavers and reviewed 50 computed tomographic (CT) abdominal scans. The results demonstrated that the medial extent of the posterior renal fascia depends on the level in a vertical direction and its relationship to the kidney which varies at different(More)
To study the anatomy of the superior aspect of the perirenal space, we analysed 50 computed tomographic (CT) scans with reference to the anatomy of Gerota's fascia, and dissected five cadavers laying special emphasis on the ascent of Gerota's fascia. We also reviewed 10 scans of patients with a large lesion in the right upper abdomen regarding localisation(More)
