The urachus revisited: Multimodal imaging of benign &malignant urachal pathology. Br J Radiol. 2020 Feb 11;:20190118 Authors: Das JP, Vargas HA, Lee A, Hutchinson B, O'Connor E, Kok HK, Torreggiani W, Murphy J, Roche C, Bruzzi J, McCarthy P Abstract The urachus is a fibrous tube extending from the umbilicus to the antero superior bladder dome that usually obliterates at week 12 of gestation, becoming the median umbilical ligament. Urachal pathology occurs when there is incomplete obliteration of this channel during foetal development, resulting in the formation of a urachal cyst, patent urachus, u...

ConclusionsMagnetic resonance imaging has modest accuracy for differentiation of tuberculous and bacterial pyomyositis. Diabetes mellitus and extraspinal pyomyositis were the predictors of bacterial pyomyositis. Presence of T2 hyperintense wall of intramuscular abscess was also the predictor of bacterial pyomyositis.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe aim of this review is to sum up the state of the art of urachal carcinoma (UC) in order to easily guide clinicians.Recent FindingsUC is a rare and aggressive disease with consequent few data about diagnosis and treatment. Dates are mainly based on retrospective trial and case reports with limited prospective trial. Clinical presentation is not specific, often with urinary symptoms. Diagnosis is mainly based on CT scan and MRI, useful to evaluate local invasion and nodal status and to detect the presence of distant metastases. Therefore, biopsy is needed to obtain histological confirmation. Surg...

Authors: Ruiz Rebollo ML, González Obeso E, Burgueño Gómez B, Santos Fernández J Abstract A 75-year-old male was referred due to dysphagia and iron-deficiency anemia. An upper endoscopy was performed which revealed a friable mass at 30 to 37 cm from the incisors, consistent with esophageal malignancy. However, the pathology only demonstrated granulation inflammatory tissue. An endoscopic ultrasound exam showed a 2-3 cm esophageal wall thickening with a 1.5 cm lymph node, which was staged as a T2-3 N1 esophageal tumor. A CT-scan also identified a 7.5 cm esophageal malignancy surrounded by...

Congenital urachal anomalies are usually asymptomatic. However, infection or obstruction of urachal remnant may result in serious complications. The giant umbilical cords with suspected internal communications could contain remnants and require surgical exploration. With timely recognition and surgical intervention, the outcome is generally good. AbstractCongenital urachal anomalies are usually asymptomatic.

AbstractPurposeTo test the effect of tumor location (urachal vs. non-urachal) on cancer-specific mortality (CSM) in patients with adenocarcinoma of the urinary bladder (ADKUB).Materials and methodsWithin the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results registry (2004 –2016), we identified patients with non-metastatic (≤ T4N0M0) ADKUB. Stratification was made according to tumor location: urachal vs. non-urachal ADKUB. Kaplan–Meier plots and multivariable Cox regression models were fitted before and after 1:3 propensity score (PS) matching and separate Cox r egression models were refitted before and after inver...

ConclusionsClinical and imaging findings of maxillo-mandibular actinomycosis are similar to those of intraosseous carcinoma. Differential diagnostic screening can confirm spotty-type bone resorption in cortical bone with CT and specific accumulation in malignant tumors with FAMT-PET/CT. This screening facilitates the rapid implementation of therapeutic interventions.
