We present a case of 20-year-old woman who presented with a large pedunculated skin covered mass lesion arising from the left thigh, measuring 40  × 25 cm, with no history of pain or skin ulceration and a feeling of a lump with dragging pain in the left side of the abdomen for about 7 years. Subsequently, ultrasound, contrast-enhanced computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging of abdomen and left thigh region were carried out. The lesion was broad-based toward the left upper thigh with a central core of interspersed fat supplied by branches of the superficial and deep femoral arteries...

We present a unique case of a 45-year-old male who fell on his flexed right hand. He presented with a subtle but extremely painful mass on the dorsum of his wrist. Ultrasound (U/S) imaging of the mass revealed an avulsed bone fragment attached to the ECRL tendon, confirming the clinical suspicion of an ECRL avulsion injury. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are well-documented imaging modalities to detect tendon avulsions. As demonstrated by this case report, U/S is an excellent diagnostic tool for ECRL rupture, a cost-effective alternative that provides real-time dynamic examination of hand injuries. To o...

ConclusionsUltrasound evaluation may be the first level exam in case of suspicious symptomatic breast implant rupture. Importantly, our results demonstrate that magnetic resonance imaging could be avoided in all those cases where an extracapsular rupture has been diagnosed using ultrasound.Level of Evidence: Level IV, diagnostic study.

AbstractWe tried to identify structural and functional liver aberrances in a palliated Fontan population and sought to determine useful screening modalities, in order to propose a screening protocol to detect patients at risk. Twenty nine patients, median age 23.7  years (interquartile range (IQR) 20.5–27.2) and median Fontan interval 19.7 years (IQR 4.5–21.4), were prospectively studied with echocardiography, blood analysis (including serum fibrosis scores Forns, APRI and FIB4), liver imaging (ultrasound (US), Doppler), and shear wave elastography to d etermine liver stiffness (LS). Laboratory tests ...

CONCLUSIONS: All the patients have been treated with simple surgical excision with a cure rate of 72.6% at a mean recurrence time of 160 days with a mean follow-up of 3.6 years. Histopathological examination, performed in 11 out of the 53 cysts, revealed seven cases of ganglion-type cysts and four cases of focal cutaneous mucinosis-type cysts. No correlation was detected between histopathological type and recurrence. Digital dermoscopy confirmed the pattern recently reported in the literature, providing confidence in the clinical diagnosis and reducing the need for pre-operative radiography or ultrasound imaging.
