Intestinal parasitism is extremely common, with approximately 70% of all people harboring one or more intestinal parasite. Parasitism and diarrhea are both hyperendemic in areas where sanitation is suboptimal. Many clinicians assume that the identification of intestinal parasites in patients with diarrhea implies that the parasites are the cause. This ...

A report of three cases of craniosynostosis in X-linked hypophosphataemic rickets (XLH) is presented. The literature is reviewed, suggesting that craniosynostosis is relatively common in XLH and that boys may be more at risk than girls. It is recommended that radiological screening be offered to all patients with XLH.

The objective of this study was to determine the degree of documented compliance of community-based ultrasound reports with suggested standards/guidelines for basic ultrasound examinations as published by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM). First trimester reports from obstetric offices ...

Gallbladder volvulus is a rare disease which may affect the elderly. It mimics clinically an acute cholecystitis, but the ultrasound signs may provide an early diagnosis: a very large, anteriorly floating gallbladder, with very thickened, multi layered wall, could orientate the physician to this rare disease. We present one case ...

Current digital information systems in radiology are insufficient to accommodate the retrieval needs of academicians. Significant efforts are required in retrieving clinical cases for teaching and research. We describe a prototype system that supports intelligent case retrieval based on a combined specification of patient demographics, radiologic findings, and pathologic diagnoses. ...
Bedi R S - - 1996
A clinico-radiological account of 62 cases of tropical pulmonary eosinophilia (TPE) seen during past seven years among permanent residents of Punjab, a non-filarial endemic state, has been presented. In comparison to reports from filarial states, rhonchi (32.2%), systemic involvement (1.6%) and mottled radiological appearance (8%) was seen less commonly. Possible ...

Idiopathic Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss (ISSHL) is defined and the literature on the etiology of ISSHL is reviewed. Existing hypotheses on the etiology of ISSHL are judged on experimental, clinical, laboratory, radiological and post mortem histological evidence. It is concluded that a viral pathogenesis of ISSHL needs further attention in ...

This paper describes a case of tracheobronchomegaly, which is a rare condition. The radiological, bronchoscopic and computed tomographic (CT) appearance of the condition are described. Together with the patient's history, these examinations are very useful in diagnosis, since, in cases of patients with chronic recurrent respiratory infections, they help us ...

The authors report on a 31-year-old male patient harboring multiple intracranial mass lesions which proved histologically to be due to infection with Cladosporium trichoides upon removal of one of the lesions. Aggressive antifungal chemotherapy with fluconazole (400 mg/d for 3 months) in combination with surgery resulted in good clinical and ...

We report a case of pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma occurring in the midline cerebellum of a 48-year-old woman. Radiological, histological, immunohistochemical, and flow cytometric findings are discussed. Pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma typically occurs in the superficial cerebral hemispheres of young patients. To our knowledge, this is the first report of the occurrence of this ...

Osteochondromas are among the most common cartilaginous neoplasms, but are rarely seen on the fingers and toes. We report a 10-year-old girl who had a dystrophic fingernail since infancy that was identified as a subungual osteochondroma radiologically and histopathologically. The clinical, radiographic, and histopathologic features, as well as the pertinent ...

We have implemented a tutoring system, Radiology Puzzler, for teaching visual recognition of intracranial lesions on radiological images. The system is designed to support the learning of radiological patterns through graphical case retrieval. Using radiologic feature samplers, the user may define brain lesion characteristics and use visual query when searching ...

Brachmann-de Lange syndrome (BDLS) is a well-delineated disorder consisting variably of pre- and postnatal growth deficiency, microbrachycephaly, characteristic face, hypertrichosis, visceral anomalies, and limb defects consisting primarily of variable limb reduction defects, micromelia, and elbow abnormalities. The course is usually marked by initial hypertonicity, low-pitched weak cry, feeding problems, and ...

Intervertebral bony bridging and enthesopathy can occur in both diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) and ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and we have seen difficulties in the radiological differentiation between them. We describe 6 patients selected because the bridges resembled syndesmophytes and this initially suggested a diagnosis of AS, although other considerations ...

Lymphocytic gastritis (LG) is a disorder characterized by diffuse infiltration of the gastric epithelium by small lymphocytes. Its cause remains largely unknown, although several arguments favour an immune origin. Hypoproteinaemia induced by leakage of plasma proteins into the gastric lumen is a rare complication of LG. We report here on ...

Ankylosing spondylitis has never been described in Zaïre and is considered to be rare in black African populations. We report two cases observed in the University Hospital of Kinshasa. The two patients are brothers. The diagnosis is based on anaemnestic, clinical and radiological findings. We therefore demonstrate the existence of ...

Splenoptosis which is a congenital fusion anomaly of dorsal mesogastrium in children is a very rare entity. In the literature cases are usually diagnosed at operation and it is noted that in former years splenectomy had a special place among various methods of treatment. In this report, a 7-year-old case ...

A 14-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy with severe traumatic brain injuries were noted to have marked asymmetry in the lower extremities. Clinical and radiologic evaluation demonstrated the coexistence of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and heterotopic ossification (HO). These cases demonstrate that although DVT are rare in children, they can ...

Pathologists have associated calcium oxalate dihydrate (weddellite) in breast biopsy specimens with benign or borderline lesions and rarely with malignancy. These microcalcifications may have a polyhedral shape in histologic specimens owing to their crystalline structure. A retrospective radiologic-histologic correlation study was performed on 300 clusters of microcalcifications to determine if ...

Sternocostoclavicular hyperostosis is a chronic arthro-osteitis affecting mostly juxtasternal structures. It is characterized clinically by painful swelling of the upper anterior chest wall and occasionally is associated with pustulosis palmaris and plantaris. Pathologically there is osteitis, periostitis, and new bone formation of periarticular structures. Two patients are described, and the ...

Spheno-choanal polyp is a rare entity which presents in a similar manner to the more common antro-choanal polyp. There is often difficulty clinically in differentiating the two conditions, although their radiological characteristics are distinct. A case of spheno-choanal polyp is presented and the plain radiograph and the CT findings reviewed.

A case of occupational acroosteolysis in a 24-year-old classical guitar player is reported. Nail tenderness was the only manifestation of initial acroosteolysis, which was due to mechanical stress on the fingers. Radiographs showed initial resorption of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th finger of the left hand. The authors review the ...

Madelung's deformity has classical clinical and radiological appearances; it is well recognised by both radiologists and orthopaedic surgeons. In this paper we report on two Madelung's deformities demonstrated on wrist radiographs that were misinterpreted as bone tumours, the patients having presented with unrelated trauma. Two further cases demonstrating similar features ...

A case of acute subcutaneous emphysema of the lateral region of the neck is described. The patient, a 26-year-old woman, also had radiologic evidence of pneumomediastinum. She completely recovered in a few days under prophylactic antibiotherapy. In this case, subcutaneous and mediastinal emphysema was most probably due to the introduction ...
