A case of primary omental torsion seen in a 26-year-old man is discussed. All signs and symptoms mimicked acute appendicitis. The patient underwent emergency laparotomy in which a normal appendix and serohemorrhagic fluid in the pelvis were observed. The pathological diagnosis was a primary torsioned omentum which was thus excised. ...

Torsion of testis after previous fixation of the same testis has been described several times. Contralateral torsion of unilateral fixed testis might result in subfertility. Four cases of later torsion of the contralateral testis after previous orchiopexy for unilateral undescended testis are presented along with a review of the literature.

An ectopic, so-called wandering spleen is an uncommon occurrence. We present the case of a young woman who presented with abdominal pain and was found to have an enlarged spleen, located in the lower abdomen and pelvis. The possibility of lymphoma was entertained because of concomitant findings of thrombocytopenia and ...

We report five patients who presented with seminoma of an undescended testis to highlight the importance of dealing with adult cryptorchidism. On the basis of the literature review and our experience, we advocate orchidectomy for post-pubertal cryptorchid patients of any age because follow-up may be difficult, and treatment for the ...

Spermatic cord hematoma is a rare diagnosis. The etiology may be idiopathic, traumatic, secondary to anticoagulation therapy, or as an extension of a retroperitoneal hemorrhage. It has been misdiagnosed as an incarcerated inguinal hernia, a testicular torsion, or a tumor. A review of the English literature is presented. An additional ...

An ovotestis is the commonest gonad in the small number of patients who are true hermaphrodites. In the majority of ovotestes, testicular and ovarian tissue is arranged end-to-end. There has been only one previous report of the sonographic appearances of an ovotestis. We present the sonographic findings in a patient ...

A wandering spleen is a rare condition characterized by splenic malposition due to congenital maldevelopment or laxity of the supporting ligamentous structures that usually fixate the anatomical position of the spleen. The diagnosis is often difficult to make clinically. In this report, a case is described in which an In-111 ...

We report a case in which endotracheal intubation performed for acute respiratory distress resulted in respiratory failure that completely resolved on removal of the endotracheal tube, with concomitant expulsion of a latex glove from the mouth. This case serves as a reminder that endotracheal intubation may promote the very complications ...

Fifteen moderate to severe acute slipped capital femoral epiphyses were manipulated in 15 patients to correct significant deformities; in each case, torsion played a critical role in the reduction. Nine of 15 patients with acute slips underwent controlled, open reduction from the anterolateral approach, stabilizing the epiphysis while the metaphysis ...

Wandering spleen is a rare condition that is extremely uncommon in the elderly. A case of wandering spleen with torsion in a 73-year-old female is described in detail. Our patient's presentation is unusual because in 1972, during a total hysterectomy, she had no evidence of a wandering spleen. Preoperative technetium-99 ...

PURPOSE: The literature was reviewed to consolidate the diverse success rates reported for orchiopexy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 64 articles pertaining to 8,425 undescended testicles was reviewed and found to contain evaluable data. Success was defined as scrotal position and lack of atrophy. RESULTS: Success rates by anatomical ...

Although torsion of the gallbladder is most commonly a disease of the elderly, an 18-year-old woman presented with this condition. This is the first reported case of laparoscopic cholecystectomy for gallbladder torsion. Signs and symptoms of gallbladder volvulus are often subtle. Radiologic evaluation may be normal. A high index of ...

Crossed testicular ectopia (CTE) is a rare anomaly, characterized by migration of one testis towards the opposite inguinal canal. Presented here is a case of crossed ectopia of the right testis, treated by extraperitoneal transposition of the gonad and right orchiopexy. Embriology and surgical findings suggest that CTE is a ...

Laparoscopic gonadectomy was performed on a patient with complete androgen insensitivity (testicular feminization syndrome). In the case presented here, although the gonads were free, the omentum which was adhering to the right inguinal ring, possibly as a result of previous inguinal hernia repair, obscured the right gonad. The left gonad ...

A case of neonatal segmental testicular infarction in 1 testicle with complete infarction in the contralateral testicle is reported. Postoperative testicular function was documented by serum testosterone assay. To our knowledge this is the first case of neonatal testicular salvage in this setting documented by serum testosterone level. We hypothesize ...

OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that testicular maldescent is rarely congenital in the absence of a complete hernial sac. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study comprised 110 boys undergoing orchidopexy. Operative findings (complete hernial sac versus no hernial sac) were compared with recorded testicular descent at birth. RESULTS: Among 70 testes ...

This report describes a case of acquired eventration of a hemidiaphragm after insertion of a chest tube for treatment of an iatrogenic pneumothorax. Partial withdrawal of the chest tube resulted in immediate return of the hemidiaphragm to its original position. This is believed to be the first report of the ...

The occurrence of wandering spleen is rarely referred to in the pediatric surgical literature. We treated two unusual cases with this anomaly. The first case had an acute abdominal problem associated to a wandering spleen and a diaphragmatic eventration. Splenectomy was performed because of splenic infarction. In the second case ...

A 65-year-old diabetic man presented with a painful swelling of his right epididymis. Urine culture was sterile. Semicastration was performed and histology revealed malacoplakia of the epididymis without involvement of the testis. Histologic workup demonstrated typical von Hansemann cells and Michaelis-Gutmann bodies stained by von Kossa's stain. This is the ...

Segmental infarction of the testis represents a rare entity. To our knowledge 11 cases have been reported in the literature. We report 4 additional cases of segmental testicular infarction masquerading as testis tumors. Inability to distinguish these benign lesions from malignant testis tumors resulted in orchiectomy in all 4 cases.
De Foer B - - 1994
We report a case of a 7-year-old-girl with a late-presenting Bochdalek hernia. The postoperative course was complicated by splenic torsion and subsequent total splenic infarction. Total splenic infarction due to splenic torsion has been reported in children with "wandering spleen" and in incarcerated Bochdalek hernias, but to our knowledge, not ...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the endolumenal portion of the fallopian tube from ostium to fimbria using a specially designed linear everting catheter and microendoscope. The study compared falloposcopy results with those obtained with hysterosalpingography (HSG) in the same patients and explored the system's ability to classify internal tubal conditions. DESIGN: A ...

The case of a neonate with scrotal swelling noted 6 hours after birth is presented. Scrotal exploration at 12 hours of age revealed a right extravaginal testicular torsion with ischemic necrosis of the testis. Intrauterine and neonatal torsion of the spermatic cord is an uncommon problem accounting for 5 to ...

Undescended testis is the most frequent disorder of male sexual differentiation affecting 0.8% of all boys by age 1 year. Anatomical and descriptive features of undescended testis lack standardization, and often do not reflect intraoperative findings. We review a large cohort of patients treated for undescended testis and analyze anatomical, ...

This is a first report of three patients with silicone feeding tubes (two with percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomies and one with a jejunostomy, all 20 French catheters) that have formed a thick yeast crust on the inner luminal surface causing tube occlusion in two cases. Candida species were isolated in all ...

The authors report a rare case of splenomegaly, caused by recurring splenic torsion in a 31-year-old patient. On the basis of this experience and literature data, pathogenetic, symptomatological, diagnostic and therapeutic aspects are discussed. Analysis of the clinical history and diagnostic procedures confirm the difficulty in ascertaining this condition preoperatively. ...
