A Case of a Giant Cell Tumor of the Tendon Sheath of the Middle Phalanx of the Fourth Toe.

A Case of a Giant Cell Tumor of the Tendon Sheath of the Middle Phalanx of the Fourth Toe. J Nippon Med Sch. 2017;84(6):308-310 Authors: Okabe K, Hoashi T, Asahara M, Esaki E, Ito M, Otsuka R, Funasaka Y, Saeki H Abstract Giant cell tumors of the tendon sheath (GCT-TS) are one of the most common tumors of the hand, along with ganglions. However, occurrence in the toes is far less common. Here we present a rare case of GCT-TS at the middle phalanx level of the flexor digitorum longus tendon sheath. Magnetic resonance imaging showed low intensity both on T1 and T2 weighted images. To the best of our knowledge, our case is the first report of a GCT-TS arising at the middle phalanx level of the flexor digitorum longus tendon sheath of the fourth toe. Although GCT-TS are rare in the toe, they must be included in the differential diagnoses of soft tissue tumors arising in the toes. PMID: 29279564 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Spontaneous resolution of lumbar ganglion is very rare and only 26 cases, including ours, were reported in literature. Different degrees of biomechanical impairment seem to play a fundamental role in the pathogenesis. Related symptoms are essentially represented by low back and/or radicular pain, without significant neurological disorders. Anti-inflammatory drugs, light unloading exercises and brace could be recommended to administrated pain and decrease facet loads. Mean time for clinical improvement was 7 mo, while MRI disappearance occurred in an average time of 11 mo. Therefore, surgery should be applied wh...

In our current study, we conducted an observational study to investigate the association of the retinal sublayer thickness on OCT with focal markers of brain tissue on MRI in participants with WMH using the Fazekas scale. Retinal degeneration in the RNFL and GCIP was independently associated with focal lesions in the white matter of the brain and deteriorates with the severity of the lesions. We suggest that imaging and measurement of the retinal sublayers using the OCT may provide evidence on neurodegeneration in WMH. AbstractPurposeTo investigate the association of specific retinal sublayer thicknesses on optical coheren...

A 33-year-old woman presented with bilateral dorsal wrist masses associated with pain and limited range of motion. On initial presentation, the masses were believed to be ganglion cysts and the patient opted for observation. Three years later, she was found to have a chest wall mass diagnosed by biopsy to be a neurofibroma. When she later returned to seek treatment for her wrist masses, magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) neurofibromas. Dorsal wrist masses situated over the scapholunate interval are commonly attributed to ganglion cysts.

Conclusions: Our findings support a possible relationship between functional brain changes and disease severity in Glaucoma, as well as alternative explanations for motor and cognitive symptoms in Glaucoma, possibly pointing toward an inclusion of this pathology in the heterogeneous group of disconnection syndromes.

Most soft-tissue lumps in the hand are benign, with ganglions being the commonest, but in the thenar region, solid soft-tissue masses are more common than a ganglion. In this review, we focus on soft-tissue lesions (neoplastic and non-neoplastic) presenting as a palpable lump in this region. A specific diagnosis can often be reached using ultrasonography and/or magnetic resonance imaging. Most of these lesions are managed in local hospitals or primary care, whereas some are referred to specialist centres.

Tal, Berg / Boaz, FrenkelPage 816 - 820Preauricular swelling followed by limited mouth opening can be a challenging diagnosis. All anatomical structures and related pathologies should be examined. A 41-year-old woman presented to the Emergency Room complaining of limited mouth opening, severe pain that was worse on chewing, and swelling over her right temporomandibular joint (TMJ) that had started 3 days previously. Physical examination revealed localized swelling and redness over her right TMJ. Her right masticatory muscles were very painful and tender on palpation. Mouth opening was slightly limited. A computed tomograph...

Ocular parasitosis in humans is well recognized; however, cysticercosis of the optic nerve is rare. Here, we report a case of an adult male who presented with right-sided headache and a gradual loss of vision in the right eye. Optical coherence tomography indicated severe loss of ganglion cells in the right eye. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a predominantly suprasellar cystic lesion thought to represent an arachnoid cyst. We per...

Authors: Lopez-Escamez JA, Attyé A Abstract The diagnostic criteria for Meniere Disease (MD) are clinical and include two categories: definite MD and probable MD, based on clinical examination and without the necessity of advanced vestibular or audiological testing. The condition is a heterogeneous disorder and it is associated with endolymphatic hydrops (EH), an accumulation of endolymph in the inner ear that causes damage to the ganglion cells. Patients with suspected EH can be examined by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), offering new insights into these inner ear disorders. Results of imaging studies usi...
