Hepatic Endometriosis Mimicking Metastatic Disease: A Case Report and Review of the Literature by Mohamed Asran et al.

Abstract: Endometriosis of the liver is an uncommon disease characterized by the presence of endometrial tissue in the liver. There are no pathognomonic radiological features for hepatic endometriosis and preoperative diagnosis is difficult by imaging. Most cases are diagnosed after surgery. We report atypical imaging features of hepatic endometriosis in a 61 year- old female that mimic metastatic disease to the liver. She was referred to our institution with a presumed diagnosis of metastatic neuroendocrine tumors to the liver. After imaging guided core biopsy and histologic and immunohistochemical analysis, the diagnosis of hepatic endometrial stromal proliferation was made. We review the literature and provide imaging features that may help in reaching the correct diagnosis of hepatic endometriosis.

Groove pancreatitis: A Case Report and Review of the Literature by Ana Ferreira et al.

Abstract: Groove pancreatitis is a rare form of segmental chronic pancreatitis. It involves the anatomic space between the head of the pancreas, the duodenum and the common bile duct. It was first described in the early 1970s, but it remains largely unfamiliar to most physicians. Radiological diagnosis can be challenging, as it is often difficult to differentiate it from other entities. The differential diagnosis from pancreatic head carcinoma may be difficult and recognition of subtle differences between these two entities is extremely important as the management differs significantly. Groove pancreatitis can be managed by conservative medical treatment, and surgery is reserved only for patients with persistent and severe clinical symptoms. We present a case of a 27 year-old male with groove pancreatitis and discuss the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) appearance of this entity as well as the differential diagnosis.

Incidentally detected unilateral pulmonary artery agenesis with pulmonary hypoplasia in a 67 year old woman by Prakash Muthusami et al.

Abstract: Unilateral pulmonary artery agenesis is commonly seen associated with other congenital cardiovascular defects, when it is detected early in life, but isolated absence of the pulmonary artery is a rare entity, usually detected in adulthood. The latter patients are usually asymptomatic or might present with varied non-specific manifestations such as respiratory tract infections and hemoptysis. This report describes the imaging findings of a 67 year old female with absence of the right pulmonary artery. The embryology and clinical manifestations of the condition are reviewed.

Hyperostosis - an unusual radiographic presentation of Myelodysplastic Syndrome transformed to Acute Myeloid Leukemia by Arie Franco et al.

Abstract: Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is also referred to non-lymphocytic leukemia in the literature. It comprises about 15% of the childhood leukemia. There are multiple subtypes of AML from M0-M7 with approximately 45% of the cases being M0-M2 and the remaining subtypes being rare. The definitive diagnosis relies on bone marrow biopsy showing bone marrow infiltration with leukemic cells. We describe a rare radiographic presentation of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) transformed to AML in an 8 month old boy who presented with a orbital wall fracture, periosteal reaction, and mixed lytic and sclerotic lesions.

Spontaneous Pneumomediastinum Due to Achalasia: An Unusual but Benign Cause by Ramin Javan et al.

Abstract: Pneumomediastinum is usually first identified radiographically in the emergency department. Distinguishing benign from more ominous causes, such as esophageal rupture, is imperative, particularly in the setting of associated esophageal disease. We describe a case, with correlative imaging, of spontaneous pneumomediastinum as the initial presentation of achalasia. A general discussion of spontaneous pneumomediastinum is also provided, including the pathophysiology, precipitating and predisposing factors, clinical manifestations, role of radiology in the diagnosis as well as the radiographic signs.

CT and MR findings in extramedullary haematopoiesis with biliary system encasement: a case report by Alfredo La Fianza et al.

Abstract: Extramedullary haematopoiesis is the production of blood elements outside the bone marrow cavity. In our case computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed the presence of a rare localization of extramedullary haematopoiesis with encasement of the biliary system in a 59 years-old male Caucasian patient, with chronic myelofibrosis and hepatic failure`s symptomatology. Computed tomography detected the presence of homogeneous hypodense tissue around intra-hepatic bile ducts with minimal contrast enhancement, strongly suggestive for extramedullary haematopoiesis. Magnetic resonance confirmed the presence of a solid tissue surrounding the biliary tree, showing late enhancement after gadolinium administration suggestive for non-active lesion of extramedullary haematopoiesis. Final diagnosis was established by percutaneous biopsy.
