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. ...

BACKGROUND: An ovary can, occasionally, be found in an inguinal hernia in the newborn female. This is extremely rare in premenopausal women. We report a case of an ovulating ovary in an incarcerated inguinal hernia. There is only one similar case of incarcerated ovulating ovary reported in the literature. METHOD ...

The objective was to present the unique case of previously unreported asymptomatic cylindrical tracheal foreign body causing near-total airway obstruction. The asymptomatic nature of the case made diagnosis and management challenging. A retrospective case review at an urban health maintenance organization medical center. A 3.5-year-old asymptomatic boy was incidentally discovered ...

Foreign body ingestion is a common problem in children. Most ingested foreign bodies pass through the gastrointestinal tract without difficulty once they reach the stomach. Perforation of the gastrointestinal tract very rarely occurs. This case report discusses the clinical presentation and management of a very unusual case of an eyeliner ...

In most cases the foreign body can be removed transurethrally with a pair of grasping forceps. In some cases objects have to be cut or resected into small fragments, making it easier to extract the object or wash it out. An open surgical procedure via suprapubic transvesical approach is reserved ...

The autopsy incidence of internal hernia has been reported to be between 0.2% and 0.9%, and these hernias are usually diagnosed on imaging due to their complications or at surgery. Meckel diverticulum is the most common congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract, occurring in 1% to 3% of the population ...

Bochdalek's hernia typically manifests early in childhood, but it is uncommon in adults. We report the case of a 77-year-old woman who suffered sudden acute cardiorespiratory distress during an upper gastro-intestinal endoscopy, caused by a massive gastrothorax, confirmed by a chest radiograph and thoracic computed tomography. Laparotomy revealed a posterolateral ...

Epidermal desquamation, a continuous but insensible bodily activity, is largely ignored unless the rate or amount of scale production becomes abnormal. It is the last topic to be considered in any serious discussion of epidermal growth and differentiation, but is becoming an increasingly fertile ground for investigation. This review summarizes: ...

The larynx functions as a protective valve of the upper airway. An end-tracheostomy represents a risk factor for foreign body aspiration. We describe a case of tracheostomy stoma button aspiration, leading to recurrent chest infection and irreversible lung damage, necessitating a pneumonectomy. This is the first reported case of this ...

A case of chondral lesion of the medial femoral condyle caused by a bioabsorbable Mitek RapidLoc meniscal repair implant is presented. Meniscal repair was quite successful, but migration of one of the implanted fixation devices resulted in chondral damage, 12 months postoperatively. All orthopaedic surgeons using these new devices should ...

Bone wax is commonly used in neurosurgical practice as a haemostatic and sealing agent. It is a safe agent, but may lead to adverse effects such as infection, epistaxsis, allergic reaction or foreign body granuloma. There are very few reported cases of the neurological complications of remnant bone wax in ...

Iatrogenic obstruction of the vas deferens within the inguinal canal can be managed by direct on-site vasovasostomy. However, in cases with large defect of the vas, the anastomosis may be under tension. Dissecting through the site of a previous hernia repair is tedious, and may lead to recurrence of the ...

An inguinal hernia that suddenly becomes irreducible may be secondary to a variety of other underlying conditions which can occasionally mislead the attending surgeon. Benign, inflammatory or neoplastic processes, as well as surgical emergencies such as intraperitoneal or retroperitoneal haemorrhage, have all been previously reported to mimic an inguinal hernia ...

Superior lumbar hernia (Grynfeltt hernia) is an uncommon variety of abdominal wall defect. There are three types of lumbar hernia: congenital, acquired, and incisional hernias. Diagnosis depends largely on the capacity for clinical suspicion, and confirmation is based on imaging tests. We report a case of an acquired lumbar hernia ...

The authors report a case of a lateral chest wall lung hernia, which was presumably congenital. Lung herniations are extremely rare, and congenital herniation of the lung through an apparently intact thoracic cage has not yet been reported. The hernia was repaired by the interposition of a polypropylene mesh. The ...

Diplomonad flagellates can be associated with significant morbidity and mortality in fishes, particularly in farmed salmonids. Diagnosis using only light microscopy is limited, and species cannot be confirmed. We therefore undertook a comprehensive transmission electron microscopy study of 20 trophozoites from the intestine of farmed juvenile rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss ...

Foreign bodies in soft tissues are commonly encountered in daily orthopaedic practice. While most of the metals and glass foreign bodies can be detected by plain radiograph, organic substances such as wood and vegetative materials are radiolucent. Unfortunately, these radiolucent foreign bodies are usually more prone to cause an inflammatory ...

Sixty cases of diaphragmatic hernia in dogs and cats were radiologically reviewed and categorized by their characteristic radiographic signs. Any particular predilection for age, sex, or breed was not observed. Liver, stomach and small intestine were more commonly herniated. At least two radiographs, at different angles, were required for a ...

Gastric volvulus is a rare cause of acute abdomen in children. Usually it is associated with defects such as diaphragmatic hernia, hiatal hernia, eventration, and paralysis of the diaphragm. We report an extremely rare case presenting with acute intractable vomiting and abdominal distention. Passage of a nasogastric tube relieved the ...

Congenital diaphragmatic hernias are a relatively common anomaly that can present with significant respiratory morbidity and mortality. We report on a case of an aortic-hiatal gastric hernia that initially presented with repeated episodes of respiratory distress, which was diagnosed as asthma. The diagnosis of a diaphragmatic hernia was made at ...
