Publication date: Available online 18 January 2020Source: Gynecologic Oncology ReportsAuthor(s): Bijan Morshedi, Kari RingAbstractPemphigus is a group of autoimmune intraepidermal blistering diseases caused by immunoglobulins directed against keratinocyte cell surface components. In this case report, we identify a non-classical paraneoplastic pemphigus (PNP) foliaceous related to an undifferentiated uterine sarcoma.The patient is a 54-year-old female with a past medical history of arthritis who presented with worsening fatigue in November 2017 and an itchy, blistering, erythematous annular plaque that first appeared on her...

We report a unique case of a 60-year-old woman developing endometrial cancer in a uterine deposit 18 years after she had undergone laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy with morcellation for benign pathology. She had used unopposed estrogen as menopausal hormone therapy. She presented with a pelvic mass that was causing pressure symptoms. On imaging, the mass had an enhancing vascular nodular component and appeared to abut normal ovaries and the residual cervix. She proceeded to laparotomy, where a 12 cm pelvic mass was found morbidly adherent to the bladder anteriorly and to the cervical stump. The pelvic mass was excise...

We presented the case of a 42-year-old man when underwent renal transplantation and developed anuria with severe renal impairment. Renal scintigraphy yielded no visualization of the renal graft. Subsequently, the patient underwent an exploratory laparotomy. The graft was found to have normal perfusion, and a surgical biopsy suggestive of an acute perfusion injury and mild tubular necrosis. The patient recovered with conservative therapy. This case highlights a common limitation of renal scintigraphy in a post-renal-transplantation patient with severe renal impairment.

CONCLUSIONS: Familiarity with radiologic characteristics of PRN is important for appropriate management. Counter to STS, other PRN are mostly benign and have an indolent course. Radical surgery is not required, as complete TR confers good prognosis. Expectant management is reserved for small, asymptomatic, benign neoplasms. PMID: 31927807 [PubMed - in process]

We report a case of appendiceal intussusception induced by a mucinous cystadenoma presenting as acute appendicitis. A 37-year-old woman was admitted with a one-day history of acute onset, right lower abdominal pain. Computed tomography showed swelling of the appendix, a pathological mass in the ileocolic region and oedematous pericolonic fat stranding. Emergency laparotomy via a McBurney incision revealed that the base of the appendix was swollen and intussuscepting into the caecum. Palpation of the caecum demonstrated an intraluminal mass, 6cm in size, at the appendicocaecal junction. After extension of the McBurney incis...

In this study, we present the case of a 36 ‐year‐old male patient with moderate mental retardation who presented with 10 months history of progressive abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and important weight loss. Clinical assessment and radiological investigations demonstrated the presence of non‐communicating gastric duplication cyst inserted on the greater curvature of the antrum and fistulized into the transverse colon. At laparotomy, the cyst was completely excised and the colon containing the fistula was resected with colo‐colonic anastomosis. Pathology confirmed gastric duplication and demonstrated that...

We describe a case of a 12 month old male who presented with small bowel obstruction (SBO) secondary to ingestion of a foam ear plug. Both X-ray and ultrasound demonstrated a small bowel obstruction but failed to pick up the ear plug. Laparotomy and removal of the object led to an uncomplicated recovery. This case highlights the need to consider foam and other expanding substances as potential causes of small bowel obstruction (vs bilious vomiting and obstipation) in infants.
