Case report: Anterior cerebral artery pediatric fusiform thrombosed giant aneurysm

ConclusionPediatric aneurysms are rare, and often present as dissecting thrombosed aneurysms or giant aneurysms. ACA dissecting aneurysms are rare but often occur at a young age, and they easily cause thrombosis, which may occlude the aneurysm and the parent artery, resulting in unknown bleeding sources.It is necessary to suspect rupture of an ACA dissecting aneurysm if there is an ICH and SAH of an unknown source of bleeding where the hematoma is localized near the ACA. Craniotomy can effectively remove the hematoma and identify the bleeding source, and it is more desirable to secure the parent artery to prevent re-rupture.

We report a case of invasive mucormycosis in 52 year-old woman. CT-scan and magnetic resonance imaging found a partial right sinus thrombosis associated with homolateral ethmoidal and maxillary sinusitis with submucosal inflammation. Histopathological examination of excised tissue was positive for mucormycosis. Our patient was treated by surgical debridement and a combination of amphotericin B and caspofungin, with a good outcome.

Authors: Martínez-Acitores D, Hernández Ainsa M, Cortés García L, Bengochea Martínez ML, Palacios Fanlo MJ Abstract Ectopic hepatocellular carcinoma is a rare entity. Most cases are asymptomatic and are occasionally found during autopsy or laparoscopy. They may sometimes cause relevant clinical problems such as abdominal pain or intra-abdominal bleeding. In this clinical case report, we review the literature in order to decipher the case of a 68-year-old female with an ectopic hepatocellular carcinoma that arose from the peritoneum. The patient was diagnosed after being studied du...

ConclusionHigh sensitivity, in particular for the presence of MA, associated with low specificity suggest that PIN and VARS questionnaires can be effective tools to identify those young patients who require specific neurological examinations in view of the prescription of a CHC or pregnancy planning.

Authors: Leo M, Ponziani FR, Nesci A, Santoliquido A, Vecchio FM, Francalanci P, Pompili M Abstract Low molecular weight heparins (LMWH) are a class of drugs including various molecules that inhibit predominantly the factor V of coagulation and are used in a wide range of clinical settings for the management of venous thromboembolism and acute coronary syndrome. Despite LMWH are considered safe and associated with a lower incidence of side effects compared to unfractioned heparin, it is worth considering that the use of LWMH can be associated with complications. Some of these, such as bleeding and thrombocytopenia,...
