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

Technological improvements and growing sonographers ’ expertise boost the role of intestinal ultrasound (IUS) in assessing patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Non-invasiveness, low cost and good reproducibility make IUS attractive.Leveraging on the Authors’ long-term field experience, this review focuses on the IUS role in IBD patien ts’ clinical management.For detecting IBD, particularly Crohn’s disease, the IUS parameters — above all the evidence of a thickened bowel wall (BWT) — show very good diagnostic accuracy similar to that of MRI or CT scan.

Authors: Pramono LA, Yuwono A Abstract Congenital hypothyroidism is the most treatable cause of mental retardation. It is also the most prevalent congenital endocrine disorder in childhood. A dramatic improvement can be made by early detection, diagnosis, and adequate treatment of levothyroxine in patients with congenital hypothyroidism. Severe cognitive impairment is associated with persistent disease in patients who have delayed or no treatment at all. In a modern era with complete healthcare facilities in a big city like Jakarta, the prevalence late-diagnosed congenital hypothyroidism is supposed to be very low....

We report a 3 day old female who was referred with a congenital abdominal mass with a background history of polyhydramnios antenatally and preterm delivery at 35 weeks. Imaging studies showed a right renal mass involving the mid and lower pole of the kidney. The neonate underwent a right radical nephrectomy and histopathology confirmed the mass as a classic sub-type of CMN.

Lung cancer has been identified as the leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide and one of the most common malignancies in China [1]. More and more non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients have been observed in the screening projects for detection of early stage lung cancer with the use of low dose computed tomography (CT) [2]. Accurate imaging for evaluation of the Lymph Node Metastases (LNM) could affect the treatment of these patients [3]. Many imaging modalities such as CT, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Positron Emission Tomography-CT (PET-CT), as well as other diagnostic techniques like ultrasound-guide...

Authors: Zhao T, Xin Y, Shen H, Liu X, Wang J, Wang Q, Wei B Abstract Ectopic parathyroid adenomas (PAs) can occur in numerous locations and are thought to be the cause of a significant portion of failed primary surgery for hyperparathyroidism. PA is a rare cause of hoarseness, which may be harbingers of a malignant process. Here, we describe an unusual case of an ectopic PA in the carotid sheath presenting as unilateral vocal cord paralysis (VCP). A 49-year-old lady presented with a 1-week history of hoarseness, irritating cough and shortness of breath. Fibreoptic laryngoscopy revealed left VCP. Ultrasound and com...

ConclusionIn patients with CRF it’s difficult to diagnose parathyroid carcinoma, because its presentation mimics the most common secondary hyperparathyroidism; the concomitant presence of metastases should lead us to suspect malignant parathyroid lesions.Surgery is the only effective therapy and therefore should be always performed.

Children with suspected appendicitis generally undergo an ultrasound (most commonly) or a CT scan (rarely) as the first imaging study. At our hospital, patients with non-diagnostic ultrasound or CT scan results undergo a non-contrast (unenhanced), non-sedated MRI. We aimed to determine the accuracy of this study for this purpose in a large cohort of children.

ConclusionThe treatment of this tumor is mainly through surgical intervention. Which should be done at the time of diagnosis. The prognosis after successful resection is excellent, few cases are reported with local recurrence.
