The clinical and computerized tomodensitometric data and postmortem examination findings from a case of xanthogranuloma of the third ventricle, producing hydrocephalus, are described. A review of 8 recently reported cases resembling ours shows that, on clinical and radiological grounds, third ventricle xanthogranulomas are usually indistinguishable from colloid cysts. From an ...

Trophozoites and cysts of amebas were found within the necrotic cornea of an enucleated eye. The organism was identified, by indirect immunofluorescent staining using specific antiserum, to be Acanthamoeba castellani. This case report illustrates the difficulty of clinical diagnosis and typical inefficacy of medical therapy shown in other reports of ...
Bazaz-Malik G - - 1980
A case of endometrioma of the right kidney with extensive involvement is presented. The patient complained of vague pain in the right lumbar region with no specific symptom relating to the kidney.

The literature is reviewed, and the similarity between these lesions and many cases ...
Fabiani A - - 1980
Two children affected by cerebral hydatidosis are described. For preoperative diagnostic purposes computerised axial tomography appears currently to be the most suitable procedure.

In a review of 20 nasopalatine duct cysts, two cases were encountered with a pigmented epithelial lining. In the literature we have found one similar case only. The pigment in our cases was shown to be melanin. The authors suggest that the melanin-containing epithelial cells are derived from Jacobson's organs ...

A case of a nephroblastoma in a multilocular cystic kidney in a 5-year-old child is reported and the related literature is reviewed. Because of the unreliability of preoperative and intraoperative diagnostic modalities in identifying a coincidental nephroblastoma nephrectomy is recommended for multilocular cystic disease of the kidney in children.
Holmes G L - - 1978
A patient with an intraspinal enterogenous cyst is described. A review of the English literature disclosed 26 previous pediatric cases reported. These cases were studied in regard to clinical presentation, laboratory findings, histology of the lesion, and neurological follow-up. Although rare, enterogenous cysts should be considered where there is evidence ...
Kingsley D - - 1978
Tne cases of growing fractures seen in the last 10 years are presented. Six of the patients sustained their injury within the first six months of life. The defects formed rapidly, several within two or three months after injury. There was enlargement of the defect in only one case after ...

Two cases of suppuration in solitary renal cyst are reported. The clinical history of acute pyelonephritis, avascular mass lesion of the kidney with ipsilateral pleural effusion (triad) seen in a female patient of child-bearing age is characteristic of this condition. Surgical management is satisfactory. Our Case 1 is the first ...
Friedman L - - 1978
A case of a mobile vitreous cyst occurring in an asymptomatic five-year-old child is presented. A review of the literature shows this to be an uncommon finding best explained as a remnant of the primary vitreous. We believe our patient in this case to be the youngest reported, and supports ...
Peterson N E - - 1977
The first case of simultaneous transverse testicular ectopia and a congenital seminal vesicle cyst is reported in a patient with coexistent upper urinary tract disorders. The literature relevant to these anomalies is reviewed and the rationale for complete urologic evaluation of the patient with a lower urinary tract anomaly is ...

Schwartz A M - - 1976
Two cases of juvenile gastrointestinal polyposis are described and the literature is reviewed. Despite the benign nature of the individual polyps, the disease has a poor prognosis. Of 13 reported patients, 4 had macrocephaly, and one of the authors' 2 patients had large peripheral intracranial cysts. This appears to be ...
Dixit S P - - 1976
Only 15 cases of pilonidal sinus of the umbilicus have so far been reported. A 16th case is described; it supports the theory of acquired origin of the disease. The case fulfilled the criterion for pilonidal sinus--the 36-year-old man had a hair in the infected umbilical cyst. The cyst and ...
Hall A M - - 1976
Two cases of solitary bone cyst are described. Case 1 is interesting in that the age of presentation was near the extreme lower end of the range of recorded cases, and also the site was in the mandibular ramus, extending to the sigmoid notch, which is one of the least ...
Nogales F F FF - - 1976
Five cases of epidermoid cysts of the ovary are added to the two-reported in the literature. This rare lesion was uniformly an incidental finding in the study of hysterectomy specimens. Its main interest is in its histogenesis, which is suggested to involve metaplasia of the coelomic surface epithelium of the ...
Gardner K D KD - - 1976
In the past 30 years 238 cases have been published which describe the nephronophthisiscystic renal medulla complex. Of these, 110 are sufficiently adequate to permit detailed analyses.

B-scan ultrasonic examination of a 10-year-old Mexican-American female with multiple avascular hepatic and splenic defects on both isotopic and angiographic evaluation revealed numerous cystic lesions, a few of which contained numerous internal echoes. Subsequent pathological examination revealed lymphangiomatosis of the liver and spleen. Some of the cysts contained caseous material ...
Bhagwandeen S B - - 1975
A case of amebic meningoencephalitis recognized in an adult Zambian is described. This is the first authenticated case from Africa. The morphologic features of the organism, its ability to form cysts in tissue, and the granulomatous tissue response denote that the ameba is an hartmannellid rather than a Naegleria. Free-living ...
Healy J W - - 1974
(1) Experiences with a case of progressive porencephaly due to a cyst under tension are presented and reviewed in comparison with the literature on this subject and the term "hydroporencephaly" is suggested to describe this phenomenon. (2) Attention is called to the frequent progressive nature and delayed onset of symptoms ...
