Hewett P J - - 1991
Perforation of the gastrointestinal tract by toothpicks is an uncommon but well described occurrence. Five cases treated by the authors over the past 5 years are described. This series emphasizes the fact that plain abdominal and chest radiology is unhelpful in establishing the diagnosis. Risk factors identified are the wearing ...

Vertical retrosternal density paralleling the sternum, with haziness of a hemithorax on chest roentgenogram, often challenges the clinical acumen of pediatricians, chest physicians, and pediatric radiologists alike. Its presence has been historically linked to either pulmonary underdevelopment and/or accessory hemidiaphragm. The surgical and radiological pediatric literature has long debated this ...

In this rare case of adult hypophosphatasia, no radiological abnormalities of the skeletal system could be detected even by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry. Severe dental caries was the sole clinical manifestation, indicating this case as an "odontohypophosphatasia". The levels of serum osteocalcin were low, which may be a useful biochemical ...

Schistosomiasis in its many forms still presents a major public health challenge. Its tendency to cause dystrophic calcification makes it ideal for radiologic study. With population movement the disease may be encountered in unexpected countries especially with the sensitivity of CT to the presence of calcium. S. japonica produces pathognomonic ...

We present a 20-year review of juvenile angiofibroma in the relatively static population of Northern Ireland. Seventeen cases were identified and new slides were prepared from the stored paraffin blocks of all their original biopsy material, and re-examined. Five females, a 36-year-old and an 18-year-old male had their diagnoses revised. ...

Idiopathic giant-cell granulomatous hypophysitis is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the pituitary gland. It presents clinically as a sellar mass lesion with pituitary insufficiency and/or hyperprolactinemia, and is radiologically indistinguishable from a pituitary tumor. In most of the previously reported cases the documentation of the disorder has been limited to ...

In a review of the chest radiographs of 1152 consecutively examined subjects, 10 cases (0.87%) of extensive tracheobronchial calcification were identified. In addition, 51 subjects having this coded diagnosis were identified among 11,758 members of a fixed population sample. Sixty of these 61 subjects were women. Tracheobronchial calcification usually appeared ...

Report-coding systems allow the radiologist to generate a typewritten radiographic report with a computer. Typically, the report is generated by selecting bar codes, speaking key words, or selecting items on a screen. MAMM REPORT is a report-coding system for mammography, developed by radiologists, that runs on a microcomputer (Amiga, Commodore ...

The study showed that excision of the caudal fin at basal level was followed by complete regeneration in one and a half months, whereas if it was amputated at mid-fin level, complete regeneration took two months. The findings confirm that the greater the extent of amputation, the faster the rate ...

Glossopharyngeal neurinomas are rare entities. Only 16 cases have been described so far in the literature. Our experience with 2 cases demonstrates the non-specific and discrete clinical presentation of the ninth nerve neurinoma, but illustrates also some typical radiological aspects, enabling a more precise preoperative diagnosis. Two cases are presented ...

Primary localized amyloidosis of the ureter is very rare, and only 22 cases have been reported in the world literature. We report the twenty-third case along with a review of the relevant literature. Due to its radiologic resemblance to malignancy, many cases were treated by nephroureterectomy in the past. The ...

Twenty-six cases of fractures of the proximal end of the femur were studied to assess the role of osteomalacia. Biochemical, radiological and histological investigations were carried out in all the cases. Osteomalacia, commonly subclinical, was found to be the underlying cause in 65 per cent of cases. Histological analysis of ...

This study reviews 16 cases of chondroblastoma of the patella which constitute nearly 6% of a large group of chondroblastomas scattered throughout the skeleton. Both radiologic and histologic appearances of chondroblastomas of the patella are indistinguishable from those of chondroblastomas arising in other sites. A reasonable differential diagnosis, including chondromalacia ...

The purpose of this report is to document an additional case of synovial chondromatosis of the temporomandibular joint and to present its radiological features with emphasis on the CT findings. It should be stressed that the value of the radiologic examination primarily depends on the extent of calcification of the ...
Tuck J S - - 1987
There are three recognised variations of gas within the wall of the stomach (interstitial emphysema, cystic pneumatosis and emphysematous gastritis). Only 26 cases of interstitial emphysema have been described, with an overall mortality of 42%, and we report the first known case of this rare phenomenon associated with acute appendicitis. ...
Guss D A - - 1987
We report a case of recurring epiglottitis in an adult. The patient presented with complaints of a sore throat and fever. The presence of a muffled voice led to radiologic and indirect laryngoscopic examination confirming the diagnosis. The patient responded promptly to glucocorticoids and parenteral antibiotics. Over the ensuing six ...
