An unusual case of posterior elbow dislocation with proximal radioulnar translocation

This article stresses the importance of making an early diagnosis of this variety of dislocation; this is the best way to prevent it from going unnoticed. The use of Computed Tomography (CT) helped this early diagnosis, enabling an immediate closed orthopaedic reduction and achieving a cure without sequelae.ResumenPresentamos el caso de una niña de 9 años que sufrió una luxación posterior del codo derecho con translocación proximal entre el cúbito y el radio. Se trata de un tipo de luxación excepcional que en nuestro caso no se acompañó de lesiones de las superficies articulares del codo, a diferencia de la mayoría de los casos ya publicados. En este artículo se insiste en la importancia de realizar un diagnóstico precoz de esta variedad de luxación, siendo su conocimiento la mejor forma de evitar que pase desapercibida. La utilización de tomografía axial computarizada (TAC) ayudó a ese diagnóstico precoz, permitiendo realizar una reducción ortopédica cerrada inmediata y conseguir una curación sin secuelas.

Abstract Follicular lymphoma (FL) is an indolent lymphoma that often transforms into a high-grade lymphoma, mostly diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. A case of FL suggested to transform into plasmablastic lymphoma is presented. A 59-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of right lower abdominal pain and vomiting. Computed tomography showed a mass in the ileocecum. Colonoscopy showed a mass with an ulcer in the ascending colon, and surgery was performed. Immunohistochemical staining of the biopsied mass showed infiltrated lymphocytes that were positive for CD38, CD45, CD138, and λ chain, and negative...

AbstractAnaplastic plasma cell myeloma (PCM) is an aggressive morphological variant of myeloma characterized by involvement of extramedullary sites and extremely poor prognosis. Moreover, anaplastic PCM is frequently associated with high frequency of 17p(p53) deletions, 1q21(CKS1B) amplifications and immunoglobulin A (IgA) isotype. It usually manifests as an adverse progression of previously treated conventional plasma cell myeloma. However, the anaplastic morphology can be encountered in newly diagnosed cases and might pose a major diagnostic challenge. Herein, we present a rare case of anaplastic plasma cell myeloma with...

Abstract Primary aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) is a cystic bone neoplasm characterized by disease-defining gene fusions involving the USP6/Tre2 gene. The literature describing gnathic ABC is limited. This case report describes a 27-year-old man presenting with a long-standing left-sided facial asymmetry. Multi-detector computed tomography imaging demonstrated a large expansile lesion positioned within the left condylar head. The lesion was biopsied and resected. The specimen showed a giant cell-rich cystic neoplasm, with fibrous tissue lined by multinucleated giant cells. Next-generation sequencing confirmed the pres...

Authors: Shaul C, Dragovic AS, Stringer AK, O'Leary SJ, Briggs RJ Abstract OBJECTIVE: To identify the intracochlear electrode position in cochlear implant recipients and determine the correlation to speech perception for two peri-modiolar electrode arrays. METHODS: Post-operative cone-beam computed tomography images of 92 adult recipients of the 'CI512' electrode and 18 adult recipients of the 'CI532' electrode were analysed. Phonemes scores were recorded pre-implantation, and at 3 and 12 months post-implantation. RESULTS: All CI532 electrodes were wholly within scala tympani. Of the 79 CI512 electrodes int...

Authors: Chen S, Ye M Abstract Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is a subtype of B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Heterogeneous and extensive lymphadenopathy is the most common clinical manifestation. Although skeletal involvement is not uncommon in other types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, primary bone MCL is rare. The present study reported a case of primary tibia MCL in a 50-year-old male presenting with left tibia pain and a rapidly growing lump. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging scans revealed a progressive lesion in the cortical bone and surrounding soft tissue mass. A positron emission computed tomography s...

Authors: Koichiro K, Haruki T, Tomonari I, Kei N, Masanobu I, Taizo F Abstract Solitary abdominal paraaortic lymph node recurrence after radical lung cancer surgery is very rare. Here, we report a case of a solitary abdominal paraaortic lymph node recurrence of lung squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). A 63-year-old man was diagnosed with lung SCC (cT1cN0M0 stage IA3), underwent a video-assisted right lower lobectomy (ND2a-1), and the pathological findings showed SCC (pT1cN0M0 stage IA3). The EGFR mutation and ALK translocation statuses of SCC were negative, and adjuvant therapy was not performed. Follow-up positron emis...

Conclusion: MS with a mediastinal localization is rare and often misdiagnosed as malignant lymphoma. Acute leukemia harboring a PICALM-MLLT10 fusion gene is characterized by a mixed T cell and myeloid phenotype. The rearrangement is a rare recurrent translocation associated with specific clinical features, as illustrated in this case report.Acta Haematol 2018;140:97 –104

ConclusionsA small proportion of sites of non-clear cell RCC showed uptake of the PSMA-targeted radiotracer [18F]DCFPyL. Unlike for clear cell RCC, the results of this study indicate that PSMA-based PET is not appropriate for imaging other RCC subtypes.
