Visual PET/CT scoring of mesenteric fdg uptake to differentiate between tuberculous peritonitis and peritoneal carcinomatosis.

Visual PET/CT scoring of mesenteric fdg uptake to differentiate between tuberculous peritonitis and peritoneal carcinomatosis. Diagn Interv Radiol. 2020 Jun 19;: Authors: Wang SB, He H, Xv DD, She B, Lu RC, Yang ZH, Shi H, Xie R Abstract PURPOSE: We aimed to differentiate tuberculous peritonitis (TBP) from peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) using a visual positron-emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scoring system based on mesenteric fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake. METHODS: PET/CT scans from 31 patients with TBP and 92 patients with PC were retrospectively reviewed. A visual PET/CT scoring system for mesenteric FDG uptake was used according to the following characteristics: FDG uptake intensity (low = 0, moderate = 1, high = 2), FDG uptake deposits (uniform = 0, irregular = 1, ascitic = 2), FDG uptake focality (diffuse = 0, segmental = 1, focal = 2), nodularity on the corresponding CT (nonnodular = 0, micronodular = 1, macronodular = 2) and mesenteric lymphadenopathy (absent = 0, lymphadenopathy without FDG uptake = 1, lymphadenopathy with FDG uptake = 2). The FDG uptake intensity, deposits, focality, nodularity and mesenteric lymphadenopathy scores between TBP and PC were compared using chi-square tests. The diagnostic performance of this scoring system for differentiating TBP from PC was analyzed using a receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve. P

Rationale: Sarcoidosis is an idiopathic granulomatous disease. Although the lungs are most commonly involved, any organ may be affected. To assist with future diagnoses, we describe a rare case of peritoneal sarcoidosis in a young female patient, and present a literature review. Patient concerns: A 32-year-old female patient presented to our institution with abdominal discomfort. She was evaluated with contrast-enhanced abdominal computed tomography (CT), and multiple enlarged lymph nodes were detected at the hepatic artery and left gastric artery nodal stations. The patient was lost during follow-up, but returned aft...

Abstract Etiology of ascites of unknown origin varies with geographic area and ethnic origin. Tuberculous peritonitis and peritoneal carcinomatosis constitute a considerable proportion of patients. Differentiation between both is a major challenge. The role of omental thickness (OT) by ultrasonography to predict risk of malignancy in unexplained ascites. This prospective study was done at Kasr Alainy School of Medicine, Cairo University and included 100 adults with unexplained ascites and thickened omentum (>15 mm) on ultrasonography. An expert performed ultrasonography to assess peritoneum and peritoneal ...

Introduction: Peritoneal angiosarcoma is an extremely rare sarcoma (0.01287% incidence per 100,000) with an aggressive course and a poor prognosis. In this case, the manifestation of peritoneal angiosarcoma was ascites, which caused difficulty in early diagnosis and the diagnosis of peritoneal angiosarcoma, was made only after the surgery. Patient concerns: A 61-year-old man working in Mainland China presented with a 1-month history of abdominal distension. A contrast-enhanced abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan revealed peritoneal carcinomatosis with massive ascites. However, his tuberculosis (TB) polymerase chai...

CONCLUSIONS: GL-ONC1 was well tolerated when administered into the peritoneal cavity of patients with advanced stage PC. Efficient tumor cell infection, in-patient virus replication as well as onco-lysis were limited to treatment cycle 1. (ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT01443260).

CONCLUSIONSThe data from the current study provide novel evidence of the differential expression of miRNAs in ascites from patients with PCA and SBP, which may offer an additional miRNA‐based molecular approach for the differential diagnosis of PCA.

Authors: Shah J, Kumar A, Singh H, Agarwala R, Sharma V, Rana SS Abstract Abdominal cocoon, also termed sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis, is an uncommon entity associated with formation of a fibro-collagenous membrane around intestinal loops resulting in intestinal obstruction. Most reported cases are idiopathic, but many other causes have been implicated in cocoon formation, including use of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis, peritoneal tuberculosis, and connective tissue disease. However, peritoneal carcinomatosis is a rarely reported entity that causes this condition. Reported here are two cases of a...

Objectives: Tuberculous peritonitis (TBP) mimics peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC). We aimed to investigate the discriminative use of PET/CT findings in the parietal peritoneum. Materials and Methods: Parietal peritoneal PET/CT findings from 76 patients with TBP (n = 25) and PC (n = 51) were retrospectively reviewed. The lesion locations were noted as right subdiaphragmatic, left subdiaphragmatic, right paracolic gutters, left paracolic gutters, and pelvic regions. The distribution characteristic consisted of a dominant distribution in the pelvic and/or right subdiaphragmatic region (susceptible area for peritoneal i...

Authors: Alshahrani AS, Lee IS Abstract Herein, we report a 39-year-old female patient presenting with gastric cancer and tuberculous peritonitis. The differential diagnosis between advanced gastric cancer with peritoneal carcinomatosis and early gastric cancer with peritoneal tuberculosis (TB), and the treatment of these two diseases, were challenging in this case. Physicians should have a high index of suspicion for peritoneal TB if the patient has a history of this disease, especially in areas with a high incidence of TB, such as South Korea. An early diagnosis is critical for patient management and prognosis. A...
