Rationale: Failure to pass though the gastrointestinal tract can result in inflammatory response, reactive fibrosis, and intestinal perforation. Fish bones, chicken bones, and toothpicks are the most common types of foreign substances that produce intestinal perforation during ingestion. Patient concerns: Case 1: A 49-year-old female was hospitalized with abdominal pain and a fever. The fever lasted for 5 days before hospitalization. Case 2: A 72-year-old male was hospitalized with abdominal pain and fever. The fever lasted for 4 days before hospitalization. Diagnoses: Case 1: An abdominal pelvic computed tomograph...
zs Á Abstract A characteristics of mediastinal disorders is that the high anatomical density of vital structures in this region represents a challenge for diagnosis and surgical treatment. Space-occupying lesions can grow without causing overt manifestations - or can progress symptom-free - hence they can reach an extreme size by the time of surgery. A 58-year-old male patient was hospitalized for pleural effusion and an extensive, space-occupying mediastinal lesion, which had been causing respiratory symptoms for 15 years. Cytology of the pleural effusion did not confirm malignancy. The CT scan depicted pr...
