CONCLUSION: Ileal intussusception caused by lipoma is a rare condition, which can be diagnosed with endoscopy, barium enema, and abdominal ultrasound or CT scanning, but preoperative diagnosis may be difficult. The treatment of choice is the reduction of the intussusception and the resection (laparoscopic or open) of the involved tract. KEY WORDS: Intussusception, Lipoma, Ileum, Laparoscopy, Bleeding.

Cirrhosis is a predisposing factor for portal venous system thrombosis. The aim of this study is to determine differences between cirrhotics and non-cirrhotics that develop thrombosis in portal venous system and to evaluate i...

AbstractBurkitt lymphoma (BL) is a highly aggressive, rapidly growing B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which manifests in several subtypes including sporadic, endemic, and immunodeficiency-associated forms. Pathologically, BL is classically characterized by translocations of chromosomes 8 and 14 resulting in upregulation of the c-myc protein transcription factor with upregulation of cell proliferation. BL affects nearly every organ system, most commonly the abdomen and pelvis in the sporadic form. Imaging using a multimodality approach plays a crucial role in the management of BL from diagnosis, staging, and evaluation of trea...

We examined race (white, black, Asian, other) and ethnicity (Hispanic versus non-Hispanic) as the primary exposures for the outcomes of ED medical imaging use (XR, CT, ultrasound, MRI, and any imaging). We controlled for other potential patient-level and facility-level determinants of ED imaging use.ResultsApproximately half (48.8%) of the 225,037 adult patient ED visits underwent imaging; 36.1% underwent XR, 16.4% CT, 4.1% ultrasound, and 0.8% MRI. White patients received imaging during 51.3% of their encounters, black patients received imaging during 43.6% of their encounters, Asians received imaging during 50.8% of thei...

​BY STEVEN CRUZ; CLAUDIA BORNIA; &ERIC MIZUNO, MDA 68-year-old male nursing home resident with a history of hypertension, cerebrovascular accident, COPD, and chronic respiratory failure with a tracheostomy presented to the ED with a 101°F fever of four days that didn't respond to Tylenol. The patient was alert and oriented x0. His Glasgow Coma Scale score was 5.The patient was tachypneic at 30 bpm, and three systolic blood pressures fell below 100 mm Hg. An initial chest x-ray revealed bilateral pulmonary infiltrates and a left-sided pleural effusion, raising suspicion for pneumonia as the most probable cause of ...

Abstract Childhood-onset Takayasu arteritis (c-TA) is the third most common systemic vasculitic disorder in children. Vascular stenosis is the main complication, and aneurysms are reported in 19-65% of cases, often in combination with stenotic lesions. Management of patients with c-TA is largely based on studies involving predominantly patients with adult-onset TA (a-TA). More widely used criteria for patients with c-TA have been devised by the joint European League Against Rheumatism, Pediatric Rheumatology International Trials Organization, and Pediatric Rheumatology European Society. Of the available imaging mo...

CONCLUSIONS: Penile localization is an extremely rare event and a standard of care has not been elaborated. Treatments are palliative and mainly aimed at pain relief and can comprise chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery. Identification of venous thrombosis as an early sign of involvement could potentially offer patients an earlier diagnosis and a better treatment option.

Authors: Malahias MA, Nikolaou VS, Chytas D, Kaseta MK, Babis GC Abstract The purpose of this study was to illustrate the usefulness of ultrasound in the early diagnosis of occult scaphoid fractures. Forty-eight patients with clinical symptoms of scaphoid fracture and negative initial X-rays were examined. All patients underwent ultrasonography in the emergency room (ER). After 14 days, a computed tomography (CT) scan was performed, which confirmed or not the initial suspicion of fracture. Twenty-two patients were found with subperiosteal hematoma, while six also had cortical discontinuity. The sensitivity of ultra...
