CONCLUSION: No significant difference was noted between single cardiac tumours and multiple tumours regarding the degree of fetal heart damage. Cardiac rhabdomyoma is the most common cardiac tumour in fetus. The correlation between cardiac rhabdomyoma and TSC is high regardless of the presence of single or multiple tumours.

A healthy 44-year-old woman with endometriosis had an abdominal ultrasound for the evaluation of mild primary hypertension, unexpectedly revealing right hydronephrosis. She was asymptomatic, with normal examination and laboratory tests.

AbstractDesmoid-type fibromatosis (DF), also known as aggressive fibromatosis, is a locally aggressive benign fibroblastic neoplasm that can infiltrate or recur but cannot metastasize. It is rare, with an estimated annual incidence of two to four new cases per million people. Most DFs occur sporadically, but it may also be associated with the hereditary syndrome familial adenomatous polyposis. Treatment is necessary when the disease is symptomatic, especially in case of compression of critical structures. When possible, surgical resection is the treatment of choice; however, recurrence is common. Due to the high rate of re...

Conclusion: AI patients with similar clinical phenotypes andFAM20A mutations should be examined for nephropathy even if they lack pertinent symptoms. Nephrology referral is warranted for patients who have clinical phenotypes related to AI-gingival fibromatosis even if they are not symptomatic.Nephron

Discussion Neural tube defects are a group of disorders that arise during embryogenesis. They include anenephaly, exencephaly, meningmyelocoeles and encephalocoeles and other malformations including occult spinal dysraphism. Occult spinal dysraphism (OSD) has incomplete fusion of the midline elements of the spine including the bony, neural, and mesenchymal tissues but the abnormalities are covered by skin (ectodermal tissues) and therefore are not obvious. OSD has a higher risk of tethered spinal cord syndrome or other neurological/neurosurgical problems. Normally the caudal end of the spinal cord, the conus medullaris, ha...

By HUGH HARVEY I’ve previously written comprehensively on where to invest in Radiology AI, and how to beat the hype curve precipice the field is entering. For those that haven’t read my previous blog, my one line summary is essentially this: “Choose companies with a narrow focus on clinically valid use cases with large data sets, who are engaged with regulations and haven’t over-hyped themselves …” The problem is… hardly any investment opportunities in Radiology AI like this actually exist, especially in the UK. I thought it’s about time I wrote down my ideas for what I...

Conclusion Management of breast fibromatosis remains controversial because of the low incidence and further efforts needed to establish evidence-based treatment guidelines.

Rationale: Infantile desmoid fibromatosis of the postcricoid area is a rare disease and is characterized by a proliferation of fibrous tissue with non-metastasis, local infiltration, and a high rate of recurrence after surgical resection. Currently, ultrasound is scarcely used in the hypopharynx and larynx area. Patient concerns: A 4-year-old boy presented with hoarseness, deep voice and snoring for 2∼4 years without any surgical history. On sonography, the lesion was found in the postcricoid area, and the left larynx showed impaired mobility in real time observation. Complete excision with a negative margin in th...

Desmoid tumors are uncommon neoplasms that are also termed desmoid-type fibromatosis and aggressive fibromatosis. Although desmoids lack metastatic potential, they often exhibit aggressive local invasion. Desmoid tumors have a typical but nonspecific appearance on multiple imaging modalities, including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound. Radiology plays an integral role with imaging and intervention in the management of these tumors as their location and relationship to adjacent structures determines the optimal treatment pathway.
