Here, we present a rare case of a hydatid cyst in a 25-year-old woman, mimicking a uterine leiomyoma. The patient was admitted with lower abdominal pain and tenesmus, and ultrasonographic examination revealed a 10×10 cm uniloculated mass with regular borders in the myometrium. The patient was operated with an initial diagnosis of a uterine leiomyoma with cystic degeneration, which was found to be hydatid cyst during frozen section and confirmed with the identification of protoscoleces during microscopy. This rare case report indicates the necessity of considering hydatid disease in the differential diagnosis of pelvic cysts, especially in endemic regions...

Although hydatid cysts are often seen in the liver and lungs, they may be present in many organs. Even in countries where hydatid cyst disease is endemic, the occurrence of pancreatic hydatid cysts is rare. Pancreatic hydatid cysts are important for the differential diagnosis of patients with pancreatic pseudocysts and cystic carcinomas. We could not find cystic echinococcosis cases which are kept together pancreas and liver in PubMed. In this article, we highlight the fact that pancreatic cystic echinococcosis may play a role in the etiology of cholestasis and that cysts may not be isolated in the pancreas in a pediatric population...

Hydatid disease is still endemic in Turkey. The most common site is the liver, followed by the lungs; it is rarely observed in the other parts of the body. In this case, right lung and subclavicular subcutaneous hydatid cysts were simultaneously observed. Cystotomy and capitonnage via minithoracotomy were applied for the cyst in the lung, and the subclavicular subcutaneous hydatid cyst was completely excised. Histopathological diagnosis was confirmed. Cystic lesions localized in the body except the liver and lung hydatid disease should always assessing kept in mind...

Demodecidosis is an ectoparasitosis of pilosebaceous unit caused by demodex mites. The disease may be a primary skin disease or a secondary disease to inflammatory dermatoses such as folliculitis and rosacea. Demodex spp. blepharitis is an infectious ocular disease that is common but always neglected. These mites contain lipase enzymes that help carry bacteria on the surface. The infestation of Demodex spp. has increasingly become a public health concern. A 29-year-old male patient was admitted to our dermatology clinic with a complaint of papules and pustules on his face, which started 4 years ago...

Malaria, which is one of the three most important infectious diseases globally, is endemic in many areas of the world. Plasmodium falciparum is not endemic to Turkey but can be seen after travel to epidemic countries. Transfusion-related acute lung injury (TRALI) syndrome is a rare disease, which may develop following the transfusion of all types of blood products, including plasma. Here we describe a case of TRALI syndrome in a 29-year-old male, who presented with fever after 15 days of returning from a business trip to Burkina Faso...
