A 56-year-old male presented to the hospital with complaint of abdominal pain. On clinical evaluation, the patient had features suggestive of perforation peritonitis. Blood indices revealed leukocytosis, hemoconcentration, and pre-renal azotemia. Relevant CT scan images delineating the pathology have been uploaded. Surgical intervention with small-bowel resection was performed for perforated Meckel's diverticulitis. Post-operative course was uneventful.

Crohn's disease of the duodenum is an uncommon condition. Our case was an extremely rare manifestation of Crohn's disease, who presented with obstruction of the pylorus and the first and the second parts of the duodenum. Because of the severity of the obstruction, he underwent laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy. Postoperative pancreatic leakage and bowel fistula were not observed, and there was no morbidity during the follow-up period. There was also no disturbance in digestive function, postoperatively. This is the first case employing laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy to cure benign lesions leading to duodenal obstruction...

Idiopathic scrotal calcinosis (ISC) is a rare benign condition which presents with multiple, asymptomatic, and painless nodules on the scrotal skin wall. The lesions have been attributed as sebaceous cysts, calcified steatocystoma, fibroma, atheroma, and xanthoma. Shapiro et al. reviewed the histologic data and found no evidence of an epithelial lining, residual cysts, and lipid or organisms, and concluded that the calcification was idiopathic introducing the term "idiopathic scrotal calcinosis." We have studied four cases of idiopathic scrotal calcinosis, one of which had scrotal calcinosis involving the whole of the scrotum...

Desmoid tumors are locally aggressive and non-metastatic neoplasms with a high rate of recurrence. Desmoid tumors of the pancreas are, however, very rare, and only a few cases have been reported in the literature. This paper reports an anecdotal case of a diffuse pancreatic desmoid tumor with the involvement of the pancreatic head, body, and-partially-tail. The patient underwent the Whipple procedure and subtotal pancreatectomy. Histopathological assessment showed that the tissues were partly positive for smooth muscle actin, but not for S100 or PanCK...

Epithelioid sarcoma (ES) is a rare clinically polymorphic tumor that mimics both benign and malignant conditions. It presents with dermal or subcutaneous nodules on the extremities in young adults. We present here a case of epithelioid sarcoma of the inguinal region infiltrating the femoral vessels. Biopsy is diagnostic and good histopathological evaluation is critical in management.

The aim of this study is to compare the effect of liver enucleation with resection of a giant hemangioma proximal to the hepatic portal vascular structures. From 2008 to 2014, 53 patients with giant hemangiomas proximal to the hepatic portal vascular structures underwent surgery in our hospital by the same surgical team. The indications for surgery included a tumor size greater than 8 cm, a middle size greater than 4 cm but with abdominal pain, a rapidly increased tumor size with uncertain malignancy, or tumor rupture...

To analyze our approaches and experiences in patients with renal injuries accompanying penetrating abdominal injuries admitted to the hospital due to high kinetic energy weapons. Patients including renal injuries associated with penetrating abdominal injuries due to gunshot wounds and fragments of shell treated at our institution between February 2002 and May 2013 were retrospectively analyzed. Total 21 patients were included in this study, 20 of whom (86.2 %) were male and 1 (13.8 %) female. Renal injury was scaled in 2 patients as grade 1, 4 patients as grade 2, 4 patients as grade 3, 8 patients as grade 4, and 3 patients as grade 5...

The aim of this study was to evaluate our experience with primary non-parasitic splenic cysts (NPSC) which are relatively rare in children and consist almost exclusively of single case reports or small case series in the literature. The medical records of all patients who presented to our clinic with NPSC between 2005 and 2015 were evaluated retrospectively. There were 22 children whose ages ranged from 2 months to 14 years (mean 9.2 ± 4.7 years). The size of the cysts was in the range of 5 to 200 mm (mean 55...

The aim of the study was to correlate multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) grading with clinical severity and outcome in liver trauma patients without significant extrahepatic injury. Over a period of 2 years (2011-2013), all patients showing evidence of liver injury on contrast-enhanced CT (CECT) abdomen and without significant extrahepatic trauma were prospectively included in the study. Correlation between the CT injury grade and outcome in terms of mortality, duration of ICU/hospital stay, fluid and blood requirements, need for intervention and complications were assessed...

The objective of this study was to analyze the effectiveness, safety, quality of life, and the results of the treatment for second- and third-degree hemorrhoids using rubber band ligation (RBL). This is a retrospective study for 890 patients who came to outpatient clinic from August 2007 to March 2013; all underwent rubber band ligation using the Barron applicator on an outpatient basis for second- and third-degree internal symptomatic hemorrhoids. Data were collected from the patients' files. The patients were asked to return to outpatient clinic for follow-up at 2 weeks and 1 and 6 months and by telephone call every 6 months for 2 years...
