ConclusionHBP-doughnut nodules without APHE in cirrhotic liver were not infrequent. None became malignant. We propose calling them ‘multiacinar cirrhotic nodules’ based on the classification by an International Working Party.Key Points• HBP-doughnut nodules without APHE were seen in 6% of patients with liver cirrhosis.• The enhancement peak of HBP-doughnut nodules without APHE was in the portal phase, which reflected the fact that they were supplied predominantly by the portal vein, based on angiography-assisted CT findings.• None of the HBP-doughnut nodules without APHE in cirrhotic liver became...

Abstract The case of a 61-year-old male with a recent total gastrectomy for a hemorrhagic gastric tumor is presented, with the important co-morbidities of type II diabetes mellitus requiring insulin, chronic hepatitis C with liver dysfunction, stage II essential hypertension, chronic stage III renal disease peripheral type II aorto-iliac disease with stage II ischemia of both legs, and chronic anemia. About one month following the gastrectomy, the patient presented with fever and acute inflammatory syndrome. Severe aortic insufficiency, aortic valvular vegetations, and positive blood cultures with Staphylococcus s...

Authors: Odish M, Beben T, Daniels LB Abstract A 53-year-old man with active hepatitis C and cirrhosis presented with a vasculitic rash, myalgias, and fatigue, and was found to have an elevated cardiac troponin I up to 15.7 ng/mL with normal electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, and coronary angiogram prior to being discharged. Subsequently, during a similar presentation to another academically affiliated hospital, the patient had a normal cardiac troponin T (

When performing partial splenic arterial embolization (PSE), it can be difficult to determine the embolization ratio based on 2-dimensional digital subtraction angiography (DSA) image diagnosis alone. Therefore, at our department, we conduct computed tomography (CT) imaging intraoperatively and postoperatively to determine whether the planned embolization has been achieved. In recent years, developments in interventional radiology devices have enabled diagnostic imaging using cone beam CT. Here, we investigated whether the embolization ratio could be predicted from volume measurement with cone beam CT in PSE. We investiga...

Authors: Darmawan G, Hamijoyo L, Oehadian A, Bandiara R, Amalia L Abstract A 38-year-old woman presented with general weakness and vaginal bleeding. One month prior, she had been diagnosed with Evans syndrome (haemolytic anemia with positive Coombs test and thrombocytopenia) and was given oral steroid as maintenance therapy. Her serology examination was negative for hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Her obstetrical history was marked by miscarriage in second pregnancy and preeclampsia in third pregnancy. She used hormonal contraceptives until 5 months prior to admission. On physical ...
