PHACES syndrome with ectopia cordis and hemihypertrophy.

We present the case of a newborn girl who was born with a variant of the PHACES syndrome. Although the sternal cleft and the small facial hemangioma were evident clinically at birth, magnetic resonance imaging of the brain provided additional information to establish the diagnosis. In addition, the patient manifested later with hemihypertrophy, an association that has not been described previously. PMID: 31191138 [PubMed]

ConclusionAn Abernethy malformation should be considered in the differential diagnosis of unexplained portal hypertension or any of its associated complications in pediatric patients. Early diagnosis and proper management of this condition can lead to a favorable prognosis, as in this case. Accordingly, a pre-operative evaluation is important to determine the proper therapeutic method.

Rationale: Primary Extranodal Natural Killer/T-Cell Nasal-Type Lymphoma (ENKTCL) of spine is rarely reported. This case study presents a rare case of ENKTCL originating from the sixth thoracic vertebra. Patient concerns: Here, we present a case of 49-year-old Asian male with chest and back pain. Physical examination revealed the myodynamia of both lower limbs decreased from IV degree to 0 degree, reflexes of both lower limbs and a large area of cutaneous sensation below xiphoid process disappeared in 3 days. Diagnoses: In immunophenotype analysis, CD2, CD3, CD7, and CD68 were positive and CD56 was suspiciously posi...

CONCLUSIONS TOS can be evaluated by CE-MRA, T2-STIR-SPACE, and VIBE during a single examination, with a reduced contrast material dose. This imaging modality performs well in showing the anatomical structure of the neurovascular bundle and the cause of the compression. PMID: 31600179 [PubMed - in process]

Rationale: Cavernous hemangiomas referred to as venous malformations (VMs), are not true vascular tumors. The treatment of cavernous hemangiomas is controversial. Patient concerns: A five-year-old girl with a cavernous hemangioma on her right buttock had undergone surgery but recurred 1 month after the operation. Diagnoses: Cavernous hemangioma was diagnosed on the basis of physical examination, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and postoperative pathologic examination. Interventions: We treated her with intralesional injection of triamcinolone acetonide (TCA) for 8 times. Outcomes: She was cured and had no ...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the imaging features of a hepatic sclerosed hemangioma by comparing them with those of a cavernous hemangioma using magnetic resonance imaging with gadoxetic acid enhancement. Methods Nine patients with hepatic sclerosed hemangiomas and 36 patients with cavernous hemangiomas (control group) who underwent gadoxetic acid–enhanced magnetic resonance imaging were included. Qualitative values (imaging findings and enhancement pattern [typical vs atypical enhancement]) and quantitative values (apparent diffusion coefficient) were evaluated. Results Patients with sclerosed h...

AbstractThe noninvasive characterization of cardiac tumors is of clinical importance for surgical resection planning. Conventional radiological examinations like cardiac computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be misleading as benign cardiac lesions can present features suspicious for malignancy. Moreover, the low prevalence of cardiac tumors may additionally hamper a sound diagnosis. However, fluorodeoxyglucose ‐positron emission tomography (FDG‐PET) has proven to be a reliable tool for cardiac tumor characterization. Here, FDG‐PET/CT imaging of a 50‐year‐old man suffering from a cardiac...

Conclusions: The specific diagnosis rate of DCHR is low. Preoperative MRI and CT examination can make a definitive diagnosis and determine the extent of the lesions. DCHR is mostly restricted to the rectum, sigmoid colon, anal wall, and mesorectum. The best treatment for DCHR is complete lesion resection. It is safe and feasible to treat DCHR using transanal endoscopic surgery. Moreover, transanal endoscopic surgery might have a huge potential when used to treat other rectal diseases.
