Temporal Evolution of Intramural Esophageal Dissection with 3D Reconstruction and Cinematic Virtual Fly-Through by Ying Mei Wong et al.

Fulltext article    PDF fulltext

Abstract: Intramural esophageal dissection is an uncommon condition, involving the separation of the esophageal mucosa from the muscular layers. To our knowledge, the temporal evolution of intramural esophageal dissection on computed tomography has not been previously demonstrated. We present a case of a 51-year-old male who first presented to the emergency department with fever, odynophagia, and dysphagia. He was treated for acute tonsillitis and discharged, but presented again after 10 days with worsening symptoms. A series of radiographs and computed tomography studies, with 3D reconstruction and cinematic virtual fly-through, in these 2 admissions depicts the temporal evolution of intramural hematoma to subsequent intramural esophageal dissection. Recognizing its appearance on imaging is invaluable in distinguishing it from other important differential diagnoses. A complete description of the case, relevant radiologic imaging, and review of the relevant literature are provided.

Large septic pulmonary embolus complicating streptococcus mutans pulmonary valve endocarditis by Christian Andres Inchaustegui et al.

Free full text article: Large septic pulmonary embolus complicating streptococcus mutans pulmonary valve endocarditis

Fulltext article    PDF fulltext

Abstract: Large septic pulmonary embolus is a rare finding in right-sided endocarditis. The entity represents a challenging diagnosis due to its variable and nonspecific clinical and radiological presentation and similarities with other conditions. We present a case of a 41 year-old woman who developed a large main pulmonary artery embolus and bilateral cavitary lung nodules in the setting of severe sepsis. Pulmonary artery exploration and clot retrieval ultimately revealed a large septic embolus from Streptococcus mutans native pulmonary valve endocarditis. The diagnosis of septic pulmonary emboli from right-sided endocarditis should be considered in patients with ancillary findings of septic embolic phenomenon, particularly the presence of multifocal cavitary nodules and in the setting of appropriate predisposing factors.

Optic Nerve Sheath Dural Arteriovenous Fistula Misdiagnosed As A Carotid Cavernous Fistula by Elena Downs

Published: 2018 Feb
Issue: 12(2) :: Pages: 1-10


Free full text article: Optic Nerve Sheath Dural Arteriovenous Fistula Misdiagnosed As A Carotid Cavernous Fistula

Fulltext article    PDF fulltext

Abstract: Dural arteriovenous fistulas (dAVf) are uncommon, acquired vascular lesions. Their location and vascular anatomy produces varied signs and symptoms and are misdiagnosed as other vascular anomalies. We present an atypical case of a dAVf identified along the left optic nerve sheath. The patient presented with progressive ophthalmological signs and was initially misdiagnosed with a left carotid-cavernous fistula. The aetiology, classification and treatment options are discussed.
