Parathyroid cysts are rare clinical and pathological entities, with less than 300 cases reported. The inferior parathyroid glands are most commonly involved, with left-side predominance. Parathyroid cysts may be functional or nonfunctional, depending on their association with hypercalcemia. A 25-year-old man presented a palpable asymptomatic left-side neck mass. Ultrasound revealed ...

Inflammatory pseudo-tumor of spleen, a benign reactive lesion of unknown etiology and pathogenesis, is extremely rare with isolated case reports in literature. These are usually misdiagnosed preoperatively, both clinically and radiologically; metastasis or lymphoproliferative disorders with pathological studies allow reliable diagnosis of the disease. We report the unusual occurrence of ...

This study was designed to assess the utility of fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in the preoperative localization of parathyroid adenoma (PA). Fifty-seven samples from fifty-three cases of PA (four patients had bilateral disease) were obtained by ultrasound (US)-guided fine-needle aspiration. Parathyroid hormone (PTH) estimation was performed on the supernatant of ...

Infection of the spleen with echinococcus is a rare clinical entity. Because the diagnosis of a splenic infestation with echinococcus is sometimes delayed, large hydatid cysts or pseudotumors may develop, demanding a differential surgical approach to cure the disease. In a retrospective study 10 patients out of 250 with abdominal ...
Szczepanik Andrzej B - - 2009
BACKGROUND: Recognition of the importance of the spleen in immunological function and the potential threat of severe postsplenectomy complications have led to the development of parenchyma-preserving surgical procedures. The aim of the present study was to assess the impact of open splenic partial resection on the management of splenic cysts. ...

Splenic hamartoma is a rare, benign vascular proliferation that is often found incidentally while working up other complaints or at autopsy. Women more commonly present with symptoms related to mass effect than men. Histologic findings consist of unorganized vascular channels of varying width, with intervening red pulp-like disorganized stroma with ...

Splenic cysts are rare clinical findings, detected due to derivative symptoms or as a random discovery in abdominal imaging. Although there still remains controversy as to their optimal treatment, bigger secondary cysts should be treated surgically. However, spontaneous regression may be observed in cysts with a diameter smaller than 4 ...

The treatment strategy of the splenic cyst is controversial. Better understanding of the splenic segmental anatomy, need of splenic conservation, and advances in laparoscopic skills has made laparoscopic partial splenectomy a preferred treatment for splenic cysts. In this paper, we report a case of splenic epidermoid cyst managed successfully by ...

Littoral cell angioma is a rare primary splenic tumor that is difficult to differentiate preoperatively from other benign and malignant splenic lesions and may have immunogenic origins. Preoperative ultrasound and computed tomographic scan showed that our patient's lesion was solitary and localized. Total splenectomy is usually required because littoral cell ...

BACKGROUND: Benign neck lesions are traditionally removed through an overlying incision. The resultant scar can be aesthetically displeasing. We previously reported our experience with a transaxillary subcutaneous endoscopic approach for management of torticollis. We now report a similar technique for removal of benign lesions of the neck. METHODS: The study ...

CONTEXT: Primary hyperparathyroidism (P-HPT) is one of the most common of all endocrine disorders. Eighty percent to 85% of cases are due to parathyroid adenomas while hyperplasia and carcinoma account for 10% to 15% and less than 1%, of cases, respectively. The past decade has witnessed remarkable advances in the ...

Primary Hyperparathyroidism (HPT) is an inappropriate hyper secretion of parathyroid hormone (PTH). Primary HPT is caused by parathyroid adenoma in 80-85% of patients. Clinical manifestations are kidney stones, abdominal groans, painful bones, psychic moans, and fatigue overtones. Ultrasonography is widely used in suspected cases for localization of parathyroid adenoma. There ...

Hydatid disease can occur in all viscera and soft tissues, although the liver and the lungs are the organs most commonly involved. Isolated splenic involvement with the disease is extremely rare. Splenic hydatid cysts may suppurate, fistulise to adjacent organs, or rupture into the peritonaeal cavity. However, acute, massive lower ...

We report on 2 sisters presenting with acute torsion of a wandering spleen within a 3-year interval. The diagnosis was made preoperatively by computed tomography (CT) in both cases. A high index of suspicion because of our experience with the first patient, who underwent splenectomy, enabled a correct early diagnosis ...
