A Rare form of Urinary tract Infection in a Transplanted patient

A 62-years-old woman with end-stage renal disease received a 2nd kid- ney transplant. The early post-transplant period was complicated with lymphocele formation, causing bladder and ureteric compression, and left iliac vein thrombosis. The lymphocele was initially treated with local drainage and warfarin was also initiated for vein thrombosis. After two months the patient presented with worsening kidney func- tion and reformation of lymphocele.

Eosinophilic Myocarditis presenting with progressive Cardiac Cachexia

Hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) is a rare hematologic disorder characterized by persistent overproduction of eosinophils causing multiple organ damage (1). Cardiac involvement in HES is frequent, found in approximately 50% of patients with HES, and is associated with high morbidity and mortality rates (2-4). It is caused by eosino- phil infiltration of the endomyocardium with subsequent tissue dam- age and endomyocardial fibrosis (5).

Oral melanocytic nevi (OMNs) are rare and benign melanocytic tu- mors [2, 5, 7, 11]. Long associated with hamartomas, melanocytic nevi are now considered as neoplasms [7]. OMNs can be congenital or acquired. They are classified histologically as junctional, compound, intradermal, combined and blue. This classification is correlated with the location, morphology of the cells and their distribution [2,7].

Digital phantoms for evaluating the dosimetric Impact of MRI Geometric inaccuracy in SBRT planning for liver cancer in the presence of motion

Recent advances in radiation therapy have placed Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) as a superior therapeutic option for the treatment of various tumors especially in the liver compared to other RT techniques [1 - 5]. SBRT has shown a sustain improvement of local control rates of tumors that are subject to motion.

An Unusual cause of Pelvic Pain: Giant Rectosigmoid Lithobezoar in a big Child

We report the case of a rectosigmoid lithobezoar. He was a 10 years old boy, without any particular history, who was seen in consultation for pelvic pain and difficulty to defecate. The examination revealed a firm mass in the left iliac fossa and hypogastrium. On rectal examina- tion, a firm, friable formation with telluric debris on the glove was found.

Perspectives of Jaundice and Implications

Jaundice involves yellowing of the skin, whites of the eyes, and body fluids. It is as a result of high level of bilirubin in the blood [1]. The bilirubin simply is a yellow pigment that is generated from haem me- tabolism, mainly from haemoglobin in red blood cells (RBCs). This bilirubin is moved by the blood to the liver, where it is linked with a sugar by an enzyme through conjugation so that it can be excreted in bile, which later reach the small intestine. It has been reported that jaundice may result from a problem at any point in the pathway es- pecially increased breakdown of RBC, liver dysfunction or problems with excretion of bile [2].

Diffuse biliary papillomatosis (IPNB) associated with IPNM : a case report

Biliary papillomatosis is a rare event. It concerns the biliary epithelium. The definition of the World Health Organization is the presence of multifocal papillary lesions on intra hepatic and/or extrahepatic bile ducts 1. There is a risk of malignant transformation. The papillary lesions are producing mucus conducting to biliary obstruction. Right hypochondrium pain and jaundice are the more frequent symptoms.

Evaluation of predictive factors associated with prognosis of patients with Solitary Hepatocellular Carcinoma receiving transcatheter Arterial Chemoembolization

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) occurs most often in underlying chronic liver diseases including advanced fibrosis or cirrhosis, which is usually related to chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, prolonged alcohol use, or nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.1.2 The Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) staging system can be used to assess therapeutic options,3 such as transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE), which is recommended as the treatment modality for intermediate stage, or BCLC stage B, HCC.

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy for Necrotizing Fasciitis of the Head and Neck: A Case Report

Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is an acute severe infection of the superficial fascia that rapidly progresses, causing fascial necrosis with serious damage to the surrounding skin, subcutaneous tissue, muscle, and soft tissue. It can be caused by polymicrobial bacteria including mixed aerobic and anaerobic species. The incidence rate of NF is approximately 3.5–4 cases per 100,000 people. Among them, cervical NF accounts for only approximately 5%.
