Stress fracture of athletes as a cause of groin pain.

[Stress fracture of athletes as a cause of groin pain]. Radiologe. 2019 Jan 30;: Authors: Bath K, Steinhagen I Abstract CLINICAL/METHODICAL ISSUE: In this article, suitable imaging of stress reactions and stress fractures in athletes will be examined. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: Diagnostic procedures include X‑ray, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and bone scintigraphy. METHODICAL INNOVATIONS: MRI represents the gold standard for these types of injuries. PERFORMANCE: Of all imaging techniques, MRI shows the highest sensitivity in terms of diagnostic and prognostic aspects in stress reactions and stress fractures. PRACTICAL RECOMMENDATIONS: Early performance of MRI to evaluate the staging, therapy and prognosis of the healing process is recommended. PMID: 30701303 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Oshita A, Kono Y, Miyoshi T, Suzuki M, Kazatani T, Matsuoka H, Kawakami H Abstract A 77-year-old man with symptoms of chest pain was diagnosed with immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related disease. Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) revealed an intense uptake in the submandibular gland, lymph nodes and abdominal aortic wall. Diffusion-weighted imaging with body signal suppression (DWIBS) revealed signal enhancements at the same location as those of the FDG-PET/CT findings. The DWIBS signal intensity decreased after steroid treatment, so we decreased the steroid dosage....

Conclusions Despite being a rare condition, Gradenigo syndrome should be taken into account as potential differential diagnosis in children referred to emergency department for recurrent headache and strabismus. An accurate anamnesis to document recent ear infection is mandatory to orientate the diagnosis and focus radiological investigations. Early recognition and timely intervention may allow conservative management to succeed, avoiding the need for surgery and serious sequelae.

Conclusion: GKS is an acceptable salvage treatment option for patients with recurrent NPC who previously received radiation therapy. PET-CT and MRI co-registration for dose planning can help achieve local control of recurrent NPC. PMID: 31775216 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This report describes a rare case of acute pylephlebitis complicated by hepatic abscess formation secondary to Fusobacterium nucleatum. The patient is a 48-year-old woman who presented with worsening abdominal pain and malaise for 3 weeks. She had a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery 4 months earlier that showed a phlegmon at the surgical site on a contrast computed tomography scan postsurgery. Physical examination revealed right upper quadrant tenderness, and magnetic resonance imaging of the liver showed portal vein thrombosis with multiple hepatic abscesses. The patient was started empirically on cefepime and metronidazol...

AbstractRenal imaging is an essential investigative tool and preliminary task for determining a suitable sanative option for the treatment of kidney cancer. In recent decades, with the increasing usage of abdominal imaging, there is an upsurge in the number of adrenal incidentalomas. Among these accidentally revealed lesions, most of them are complex that warrant immediate aggressive treatment planning due to their malignant potential. The guidelines given by the American Urological Association (AUA), American College of Radiology (ACR), and European Association of Urology (EAU) vary concerning the use of ideal preliminary...

ConclusionMesenteric cysts represent a rare cause of intra-abdominal mass. Owing to low prevalence, literature is limited as is guidance on management. Careful pre-operative planning is essential so as to avoid operative complications. Imaging such as USS is of great importance; however Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) may be of more benefit, owing to the complex anatomical relations within which mesenteric cysts can present. Surgical excision is widely reported as the surgical treatment of choice for symptomatic cysts

Discussion The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) “is an intra-articular but extrasynovial collagenous structure with limited healing capacity that originates in the posteromedial aspect of the lateral femoral condyle and crosses into anteromedially to insert anterior into the intercondylar eminence of tibial articular surface.” It plays an important part as a mechanoreceptor particularly as a proprioceptor. Its main role is to prevent excessive anterior tibial translation, limits varus/valgus stress when the knee is in full extension and some rotary movements of the knee. There are ~120,000 surgeries per year m...

Rationale: Streptococcus anginosus mostly colonizes the digestive and genitourinary system, including the oropharyngeal region. It commonly causes invasive pyogenic infection, but less likely causes infective endocarditis (IE). Patient concerns: An 18-year-old woman who had an underlying mitral valve prolapse without mitral regurgitation presented to our hospital with low-grade fever, left leg weakness, and left abdominal pain. She was diagnosed with brain infarction and microabscess as well as IE. The patient totally recovered after the 6-week course of intravenous antibiotics. Diagnosis: Brain magnetic resonance ...

We present the case of unilateral nonhemorrhagic adrenal infarct in a 29-week pregnant 21-year-old woman. The patient presented with right upper quadrant pain, nausea, and vomiting. Ultrasonography of the right upper quadrant and appendix was negative for pathology. Magnetic resonance imaging of the abdomen demonstrated a right nonhemorrhagic adrenal infarct, subsequently confirmed with limited computed tomography of the upper abdomen. This case discusses the clinical presentation and pertinent imaging findings of adrenal infarction in pregnancy.
