Ultrasound as a Diagnostic and Interventional Aid at Point-of-Care in Dermatology Clinic: A Case Report.

We report a patient who presented with a tender subcutaneous mass that was diagnosed and treated using point-of-care ultrasound-guidance at the dermatology clinic. Ultrasound revealed features consistent with a ganglion cyst, which was subsequently injected with triamcinolone acetonide under ultrasound-guidance with resolution of symptoms upon follow-up one month later. Our study demonstrates the utility of ultrasound as an effective, time-efficient diagnostic and interventional aid that can modify dermatology practice.

Rationale: Although most complications of herpes zoster (HZ) are associated with the spread of varicella-zoster virus from the initially involved sensory ganglion, motor nerve impairment, such as limb weakness, is a rare but severe complication that is difficult to treat. Patient concern: A 73-year-old female presented with sudden left upper limb pain and weakness after HZ. Diagnosis: Brachial plexopathy following HZ (postherpetic brachial plexopathy). Intervention: Despite alleviation of the vesicles with antiviral treatments, the left upper limb weakness and neuropathic pain did not improve. After obtaining pa...

We report a 47-year-old man with a functional paraganglioma in the left posterior mediastinum and highlight the key elements of management of mediastinal paragangliomas. Diagnoses: A left posterior mediastinal mass was found by computed tomography (CT) scan and Chest-enhanced CT. Preoperative ultrasound-guided biopsy suggested the possibility of a paraganglioma. A diagnosis of paraganglioma was established by immunohistochemistry. Interventions: The patient underwent single-stage resection of the lesion via left thoracotomy after preoperative oral α-adrenoceptor (phenoxybenzamine) therapy and intravenous fluid ...

CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study demonstrate significant recovery from preoperative weakness after decompression of intraneural ganglion cysts of the CPN. A favorable clinical outcome was highly correlated with an intraneural hypoechogenic ring-shaped structure on the medial side of the CPN identified during a follow-up postoperative ultrasound scan. These study results indicate the potential benefit of ultrasound scanning as a prognostic tool following decompression procedures for intraneural ganglion cysts of the CPN.

AbstractIn this article, two cases of ulnar nerve neuropathy in Guyon ’s canal caused by a ganglion cyst are reported. A review of the literature found 73 cases reported in 35 articles of ulnar neuropathy at the wrist secondary to a ganglion cyst. We investigated the pathogenesis of ganglion cysts, which are separated as extraneural and intraneural. At this anatomic al area, there are a variety of clinical factors that can also lead to ulnar nerve compression such us trauma, fracture of the hamate’s hook, arterial thrombosis, tumors and other anatomical variations. The symptoms may include weakness, paresthesia...

We present a patient with cluster headache presenting with chronic ipsilateral facial pain with nasal congestion and left eye pain who achieved sustained pain relief with an ultrasound-guided injection into the pterygopalatine fossa in conjunction with an ultrasound-guided pulsed radiofrequency ablation procedure involving the C2 dorsal root ganglion.

ConclusionIntra-neural ganglion cysts of the lateral dorsal cutaneous nerve are rare. They represent a relatively uncommon source of lateral ankle pain, which can easily be diagnosed with ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance imaging and managed effectively with US-guided aspiration or surgical excision.

These are less invasive procedures and provide desirable results in short duration. Local anesthetics and corticosteroids are the most commonly injected pharmaceuticals. Platelet rich plasma and autologus blood injections have gained popularity in recent past and provide acceptable results. In this article we aim to review ...

In this study, we explored the effect of vitamin B12 on nerve regeneration after TBI both in vivo and in vitro. Meanwhile, we investigated the role of ER stress during the vitamin B12 treatment for TBI by inspecting changes in neuronal apoptosis, microtubule, myelin regeneration, and axonal growth. Materials and Methods Animals Adult C57BL/6 male mice aged 6–8 weeks and weighing 20–26 g were purchased from the Animal Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Shanghai, China). Animals were housed under a 12-h light/dark cycle at 21–23°C and provided access to food and water ad libitum. The care and...

​Ganglion cysts are soft tissue, fluid-filled swellings most frequently found in the hand and wrist; their origin is not exactly clear. They are common, however, and can occasionally be associated with surprising morbidity despite their benign nature. The morbidity seems to be related to their tendency to localize in highly mobile and anatomically tight quarters such as the hand and wrist. Nevertheless, they can show up almost anywhere.Cysts can also have sequelae, such as sciatica from a piriformis ganglionic cyst, compression radiculopathy from a lumbar intraspinal ganglion cyst, foot drop from peroneal nerve cyst, met...
