Accidental swallowing and aspiration of dental prostheses is not uncommon and has been reported frequently in the literature. The location of a swallowed or aspirated dental prosthesis often is accomplished radiographically but this is difficult with prostheses constructed entirely of acrylic resins. A case report of an elderly patient who ...

We describe three patients with macrophagic myofasciitis and inclusion body myositis. All patients fulfilled diagnostic criteria for inclusion body myositis and myopathologic criteria for macrophagic myofasciitis. In the three cases macrophagic myofasciitis complicated the evolution of a known and painless inclusion body myositis and was diagnosed in a repeated deltoid ...

Diaphragmatic plication is the procedure of choice for congenital diaphragmatic eventration. In the absence of complications, most newborns with eventration do well after plication and have normal long-term respiratory functions. However complications are rare. Recurrence, ipsilateral pneumothorax and rupture of the diaphragm have been reported in literature. We report a ...

The combination of a Morgagni hernia and a paraesophageal hernia in adults is very rarely encountered in clinical practice. In fact, to our knowledge, only three cases of this condition, which is probably a coincidental occurrence, have been reported in the medical literature. We discuss the management of a 74-year-old ...

Ureteral herniation is a rare, often misdiagnosed event and serious surgical complications are possible. Until 1992, 128 cases of ureteral herniation were reported and in 54 (42%) the inguino-scrotal region was involved. From an anatomical and pathogenic standpoint, two types of uretero-inguinal hernias can be identified: paraperitoneal (more frequent, acquired, ...

Lumbar hernias occur infrequently; however, after trauma, they can present challenging problems in management. Unlike congenital or primary acquired lumbar hernias, posttraumatic lumbar hernias result from a disruption in normal anatomic boundaries and may require extensive reconstruction. We describe a case of lumbar hernia in a patient who had been ...

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a rare disease of newborns. Right-sided diaphragmatic hernia is even rarer. The clinical and radiological presentations, which are well documented in left-sided diaphragmatic hernia, are variable in right-sided diaphragmatic hernia. This makes the diagnosis of right-sided diaphragmatic hernia more difficult. During a 12-year period, seven ...

Intraperitoneal forgotten foreign bodies are prone to create adhesions and to encapsulate, or to provoke an exudative response, with or without accompanying bacterial infection. Often a process of self-extrusion is initiated. This is also true for gossypibomas, retained surgical sponges. Presentation is possible as a pseudotumoral, occlusive, or septic syndrome; ...

Ingested foreign bodies can be hard to diagnose but cannot be missed. We report two cases where helical computed tomography (three-dimensional computed tomography) was used for the effective preoperative diagnosis (swallowed fish bone-induced perforation of sigmoid colon and a case of ileus caused by ingested PTP [press-through package]). Other traditional ...
