Intrathoracic gastric volvulus is a rare event. It occurs when the stomach undergoes organoaxial torsion in the chest, caused either by concomitant enlargement of the hiatus or by a diaphragmatic hernia. A delay in diagnosis and treatment can result in fatal complications such as gastric ischemia, perforation, and hemorrhage. We ...

BACKGROUND: Beside infections, foreign body incidences are amongst the most frequently encountered pathologies in pediatric otolaryngology. While inhaled foreign bodies represent an acute emergency, symptoms of ingested foreign bodies sometimes appear with some delay. Typically fishbones tend to go unnoticed in a first examination and become symptomatic by fever, odynodysphagia ...

Anterior abdominal wall hernias are uncommon, and herniation of a gravid uterus into these hernias is even rarer. Although reducible initially, the herniation of pregnant uterus may be complicated by incarceration and subsequent strangulation within the hernial sac, late in the course of pregnancy. There is no consensus over the ...

Ureteral hernia is uncommon and usually misdiagnosed. From an anatomic point of view, we can distinguish between two uretero-inguinal hernias: intraperitoneal and extraperitoneal. Ureter inguinal hernias are nearly always indirect. This kind of hernia can include the ureter alone or, frequently, other abdominal sliding organs within the hernia sac (bladder, ...

The author discusses the four-session-a-week psychoanalysis of a patient in psychotic breakdown with outbursts of violence.

Esophageal coins are typically seen as radiopaque disks on anteroposterior chest radiographs. This radiographic finding is generally considered classic for identifying "swallowed" coins as being in the esophagus. We report the case of an 11-year-old girl with an esophageal coin seen end-on on an anteroposterior chest radiograph and as a ...

In 1925, Calvé described vertebra plana as an aseptic necrosis of bone involving a single vertebral body of the spinal column. This theory was set aside in 1954 by Compere, who concluded that vertebra plana is caused by eosinophilic granuloma and not by osteochondritis as suggested by Calvé. It has ...

Myxomycetes are protists whose life cycle depends on aerially dispersed spores that germinate into motile myxamoebae, which then pair and fuse to form a larger, motile plasmodium. The plasmodium seeks out a suitable fruiting site (usually atop vegetative material or detritus) and transforms into fruiting bodies that release the spores. ...
