As the conventional histopathologic examination of thymic carcinoma (TC) is nonspecific, immunohistochemical studies along with correlative radiographic investigations are needed for its correct diagnosis. TC commonly occurs in the late 5th to early 6th decades of life but is extremely rare in childhood. It may be incidentally detected from chest radiographs taken as routine or for other reasons. However, most patients present with symptoms such as chest pain, cough, shortness of breath, dysphagia and hoarseness, which are directly attributable to the mediastinal mass...

Burned-out tumor is a rare phenomenon in which a testicular tumor regresses in the primary lesion and progresses in a metastatic lesion. We report the case of a 30-year-old male with burned-out seminoma revealed by open biopsy of solitary 10th rib bone metastasis. He underwent inguinal orchiectomy, which revealed hyalinization, indicating a spontaneously regressed testicular tumor. Chemotherapy for seminoma was administered in three cycles of bleomycin + etoposide + cisplatin therapy. The chemotherapy was effective, and wide resection of the rib was subsequently performed...

OBJECTIVE: To elucidate the role of MRI in predicting meniscal tear reparability according to tear type and location in relation to vascular zones. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective study, two readers evaluated 79 pre-surgical MRIs of meniscal tears arthroscopically treated with meniscectomy or meniscal repair. Tears were classified according to type into vertical, horizontal, radial, complex, flaps and bucket handle and were considered reparable if the distance measured from the tear to the menisco-capsular junction was less than or equal to 5 mm...

PURPOSE: To test the diagnostic performance of bone SPECT/CT and MRI for the evaluation of bone viability in patients after girdlestone-arthroplasty with histopathology used as gold standard. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, patients after girdlestone-arthroplasty were imaged with single-photon-emission-computed-tomography/computed-tomography (SPECT/CT) bone-scans using 99mTc-DPD. Additionally, 1.5 T MRI was performed with turbo-inversion-recovery-magnitude (TIRM), contrast-enhanced T1-fat sat (FS) and T1-mapping...

Ossifying subperiosteal haematoma is an exceedingly rare manifestation of Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1). We report an interesting case of plexiform neurofibroma causing a rapidly growing tibial mass as a result of subperiosteal haemorrhage, in an 11-year-old girl with previously undiagnosed NF-1. This reflects a precursor of the more mature periosteal ossification seen in cases traditionally termed "subperiosteal cysts". A previously well young girl was referred by her general practitioner with an increasingly large, mildly tender, soft lump on the anterior aspect of her right tibia...

Piriformis muscle syndrome (PMS) is difficult to diagnose by objective evaluation of sciatic nerve injury. Here we report a case of PMS diagnosed by diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and tractography of the sciatic nerve, which can assess and visualize the extent of nerve injury. The patient was a 53-year-old man with a 2-year history of continuous pain and numbness in the left leg. His symptoms worsened when sitting. Physical examination, including sensorimotor neurologic tests, the deep tendon reflex test, and the straight leg raise test, revealed no specific findings...

REVIEW
Jacques Malghem, Frédéric Lecouvet, Bruno Vande Berg
Calcaneal cysts and lipomas are relatively rare, benign bone lesions. They are similar in many ways, including in their location and radiological appearance, but their content differs. Cysts contain fluid whereas lipomas contain fat, although some lesions may exhibit a mixed content. The pathogenesis of the two entities is the subject of controversy. The theory that calcaneal cysts may result from lipomatous necrosis has been widely suggested in the literature, but no such progression has ever been shown. The contrary hypothesis has also been considered, i...

INTRODUCTION: Discriminating among benign chondroid tumors, low-grade chondrosarcomas, and grade 2/3 chondrosarcomas is frequently difficult with standard imaging modalities. We systematically reviewed the literature to determine the performance of PET-CT in making this distinction. METHODS: A systematic review was performed identifying 811 PubMed- and Embase-indexed articles containing combinations of "chondrosarcoma," "enchondroma," "chondroid," "cartilage" and "PET/CT," "PET," "positron...

We report transient proximal and distal femoral metaphyseal striations that have not previously been described in autosomal dominant brachyolmia. The pelvis/hip radiograph of a 13-year-old boy demonstrated bilaterally symmetrical proximal femoral metaphyseal vertical striations. Additional vertical striations were also observed at the distal femur and proximal tibia metaphysis. Radiography of the thoracolumbar spine demonstrated platyspondyly with irregular endplates and overfaced pedicles. TRPV4 mutations were confirmed in this patient...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether ultrasound-guided injection of botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A) is a viable alternative to surgical intervention for the treatment of functional popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-seven patients met diagnostic criteria confirming the presence of functional PAES and agreed to go ahead with ultrasound-guided BTX-A injection at the level of artery occlusion. Patients were assessed and treated at baseline and given the option for 'top-up' injections at 6 and 12 months...

REVIEW
Yara Younan, Philip K Wong, Spero Karas, Monica Umpierrez, Felix Gonzalez, Jean Jose, Adam Daniel Singer
In the setting of bipolar bone injury, orthopedic surgeons are currently making use of the glenoid track method to guide surgical management. Using preoperative CT or MR imaging, this method allows the identification of patients who are more likely to fail a primary capsuloligamentous Bankart repair. As the glenoid track method becomes increasingly used in preoperative planning, it is important for the radiologist to become familiar with its concept and method of calculation. This review article aims to concisely summarize the current literature and the clinical implications of the glenoid track method...

OBJECTIVE: Vascular calcifications on the preoperative radiograph of patients scheduled for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) often give rise to concern, as their clinical relevance remains uncertain. The aim of this study was to investigate whether these vascular calcifications-especially medial artery calcifications (MACs), which increase arterial stiffness-were associated with tourniquet failure and thus with increased intraoperative blood loss. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 765 patients who underwent primary TKA with a tourniquet (cuff pressure 350 mmHg) between 2009 and 2011 were screened for vascular calcifications on the preoperative radiograph...

REVIEW

Scapholunate instability is the most common form of carpal instability. Imaging (especially radiography) plays an important role in the staging, management and post-operative follow-up of scapholunate (SL) instability. The goals of this article are to review the pre-operative staging of SL instability, the surgical options for repair and reconstruction of the SL ligament, along with the normal postoperative imaging findings as well as complications associated with these surgical options.

Tuberous sclerosis complex is a genetic disease that results in abnormal cellular proliferation and hamartoma growths in multiple organ systems. However, macrodactyly and subcutaneous fibrous harmatomas are very uncommon associations with this disease. We see these rare manifestations in our case report of a 16-year-old female with tuberous sclerosis complex and discuss the imaging findings and pathogenetics of these manifestations. Through this, our report aims to expand the known clinical spectrum of features seen in tuberous sclerosis and aid in its diagnosis...

Mammary-type myofibroblastoma (MTM) is a rare, benign neoplasm that is histologically identical to myofibroblastoma of the breast, but occurring in an extramammary site. The masses have been reported in superficial and deep soft tissue sites and visceral locations with the inguinal area and lower extremities are the most common. Most previous reports of MTMs have concentrated on clinical and pathological findings, with very limited information regarding imaging characteristics. Here, we describe three cases of MTM diagnosed at our institution, with a focus on imaging findings...
