An atypical case of noninfected iliopsoas bursitis - MRI findings by Vasilios Skiadas et al.

Abstract: The authors present an unusual case of atypical iliopsoas bursitis in an 81 years-old female patient. The patient asked for medical advice due to a chronic left hip and lower abdominal pain with no specific characteristics. Physical examination revealed a palpable left-sided pelvic mass. Ultrasound examination demonstrated a purely cystic mass that was presumed to be an ovarian cystic malignancy. The patient was referred for an MRI examination, which showed a cystic lesion extending from the left iliac crest to the anterior aspect of the ipsilateral hip joint (maximum diameter 18 cm), coursing below the iliopsoas tendon indicative of an extremely distended iliopsoas bursa.

Abstract: Fibroids are the most common gynecologic tumors. Our case discusses the outcome of a 47-year-old woman who presented to our clinic with cachexia, and a giant abdominal mass. An initial diagnostic imaging workup consisted of X-Ray, CT, and ultrasound and indicated a possible diagnosis of leiomyosarcoma. However, after surgical evaluation, she was diagnosed pathologically with an atypical presentation of a uterine leiomyoma. Our case reviews the epidemiology and presentation of both pathologies, along with the imaging workup, and the operative correlation in our patient.

Renal lymphangiectasia presented by pleural effusion and ascites by Saif Ahmed Ali Al-Dofri

Abstract: A young male patient complaining of vague abdominal pain, dyspnea, generalized weakness and abdominal distension for 6 months was referred for abdominal ultrasound. Ultrasound showed enlarged echogenic kidneys, perinephric and renal sinus cystic fluid collections bilaterally with ascites and right pleural effusion. The ultrasound findings were confirmed by abdomen CT scan. Renal function test was within normal. Laboratory analysis of aspirated perinephric fluid revealed abundant lymphocytes. The radiological findings and perinephric fluid aspiration analysis are consistent with renal lymphangiectasia. Pleural effusion, in addition to ascites and perinephric fluid collections, is a new presentation of the disease. Ascites and pleural effusion were improved by diuretics.

Asymmetric 18F-FDG Uptake in the Infradiaphragmatic Brown Adipose Tissue (BAT) Mimicking Adrenal Metastasis: A Relatively Rare Site of Brown Fat and a Potential Source for False Positive FDG-PET Study by Sandip Basu et al.

Free full text article: Asymmetric 18F-FDG Uptake in the Infradiaphragmatic Brown Adipose Tissue (BAT) Mimicking Adrenal Metastasis: A Relatively Rare Site of Brown Fat and a Potential Source for False Positive FDG-PET Study

Fulltext article    PDF fulltext

Abstract: FDG uptake in the metabolically active brown adipose tissue (BAT) is a source of significant concern while interpreting FDG-PET studies. It is also of great interest due to its potential implications for obesity research. In this communication, we describe hitherto unreported asymmetric BAT uptake in the abdomen, persisting after diazepam intervention in the repeat PET study on a separate day. The patient did not have any evidence of disease even at 24 months` follow up. The present case is a useful addition to the current body of literature of false positive FDG-PET due to BAT uptake in unusual location and underscores the importance of high index of suspicion and careful correlation, whenever one comes across an unusual PET finding in a given clinical situation. This assumes important diagnostic value particularly when it coexists in the setting of malignancy where the disease can be falsely upstaged by misinterpretation. The literature relevant to the report is discussed and a schema is suggested for correct interpretation.

Abstract: We present a case of complex hemifacial microsomia (HFM) which was diagnosed at the age of 46 years. Imaging findings of a complex deformity of the temporal bone are presented and connected to a broad range of clinical symptoms. Computed tomography (CT) imaging indications are discussed briefly.

Abstract: The imaging findings of amyloidosis are nonspecific and diverse due to its association with various chronic diseases such as multiple myeloma. We report a case of gastrointestinal amyloidosis presenting as enterocolitis on a contrast enhanced CT scan of the abdomen.
