We reported OHVIRA syndrome in a 15-year-old girl, who was referred to King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre, due to hematocolpos and an imperforate hymen. The patient was diagnosed as having an absent right kidney since childhood. She presented with progressive development of lower abdominal discomfort and an abdominopelvic mass. She had no history of urinary complaints. Here, we describe our findings from the abdominal ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging. PMID: 29468003 [PubMed]

Conclusions: An accurate diagnostic pathway helps to correctly distinguish between the possible causes of acute scrotum. However, none of the examinations performed could reliably distinguish between acute torsion and other causes of acute scrotum. Therefore, immediate surgical exploration of the testis is mandatory if torsion cannot be ruled out. PMID: 29468000 [PubMed]

Publication date: Available online 24 February 2018 Source:Best Practice & Research Clinical Obstetrics & Gynaecology Author(s): Karel Maršál The growth-restricted fetus in utero is exposed to a hostile environment and suffers of undernutrition and hypoxia. In order to cope with the stress the fetus changes its physiological functions. These adaptive changes aid intrauterine survival, however, they can lead to permanent functional and structural changes that can contribute to development of serious chronic diseases later in life. Epigenetic mechanisms are an important part of the pathophysiological p...

Authors: He Y, Liu F, Mou S, Li Q, Wang S Abstract The aim of this study was to analyze the correlation between the quantitative parameters of contrast-enhancement ultrasound for primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and biological manifestations of tumor (Ki-67), and to explore the related risk factors of primary hepatocellular carcinoma, so as to provide the theoretical basis for the further study on contrast-enhancement ultrasound manifestations, clinical features and prognosis of HCC. The patients with HCC confirmed by operation or puncture were collected, and those with the background of liver cirrhosis and i...

Authors: Xu J, Ouyang Z, Yang Y, Cai X, Wang Z, Lin M, Zhang X, Liu X, Yu M Abstract Background: Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) comprises a group of inherited disorders in which patients typically lose night vision in adolescence and then lose peripheral vision in young adulthood before eventually losing central vision later in life. A retrospective case-control study was performed to evaluate differences in ocular biometric parameters in primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG) patients with and without concomitant RP to determine whether a relationship exists between PACG and RP. Methods: We used ultrasound biomicros...

ConclusionAlthough not highly specific, the presence of inspissated cyst fluid with fibrillary architecture should be recognized by cytopathologists and interpreted as at least “atypical” given the potential association with neoplastic mucinous cysts of the pancreas.

Conclusions Practice variability in catheterization after pelvic reconstructive and incontinence surgery is high. Distribution of catheterization type by specialty varies significantly, with clean-intermittent straight catheterization most prevalent. Future studies are necessary to establish a consensus on optimal catheterization management technique for patients with acute postoperative voiding dysfunction.

Conclusions Streptococcus pyogenes PP is more common than previously reported, is associated with physical findings of acute abdomen, is usually accompanied by circulatory shock, and is almost always clinically responsive to treatment with operative and antimicrobial agent interventions.

Conclusions:The present study shows that the slope of worsening of liver stiffness is greater in patients who will develop CFLD, suggesting that annual transient elastography may be useful to detect risk of severe liver disease at an earlier stage. Objectives: Cystic fibrosis–related liver disease (CFLD) can develop silently in early life and approximately 10% of children with cystic fibrosis (CF) become cirrhotic before adulthood. Clinical, biological, and ultrasound criteria used to define CFLD often reveal liver involvement at an advanced stage. The aim of this retrospective study was to assess the progression...

Conclusions:EUS diagnosed CP (≥4 features) in 31% and biliary abnormality in 3% children with ARP. EUS is safe, sensitive, and useful for early diagnosis of CP in children with ARP. Objectives: Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is an established tool for evaluation of adults with acute recurrent pancreatitis (ARP) whereas data in pediatrics is limited. Our study assessed the role of EUS in identifying etiology including changes of chronic pancreatitis (CP) in children and adolescents with ARP. Methods: Children with ARP (≥2 episodes of acute pancreatitis [AP]) were prospectively evaluated with a detailed clinical pr...
