Acalculous cholecystitis is usually seen in critically-ill patients while torsion of the gall-bladder tends to arise de novo, pre-disposed to by an absent mesentery. There are ultrasonic features in common but the most useful distinguishing finding is the sign of the 'floating gall-bladder'. A case is reported and the ultrasound ...

Renal hemangiomas are rare neoplasms of the kidney, and the number of cases reported in the literature are about 200 since the original description by Virchow in 1867. Among these, only a few have been examined by the combination of ultrasound, computed tomography, and angiography. We present a demonstrative case ...

Serum and urine concentrations of fibrin (-ogen) degradation products (FDP) were estimated in 20 proven Russell's viper bite (RVB) cases with severe defribination. All patients had similar degrees of high serum FDP levels. However, the ten who developed into acute renal failure (ARF) had significantly (p < 0.001) higher urinary ...

We report a case of intraperitoneal bladder rupture during electroconvulsivee therapy. We consider that the likely cause of this complication was powerful abdominal muscle contraction, during an unmodified seizure, on a bladder distended by failure to void urine before treatment and the anticholinergic effects of medication. The literature is reviewed, ...
