Diffuse neurofibroma is a rarely encountered subtype of neurofibroma but the most common to be misdiagnosed. Its imaging appearance is very similar to that of a vascular malformation, and it is often labelled one until a biopsy proves it to be otherwise. The infrequency of its association with neurofibromatosis makes it a rare and difficult diagnosis. Here, we report the case of a 16-year-old girl who presented with the complaint of a gradually progressive swelling around the right ankle and heel, which was initially diagnosed as a case of a vascular malformation...

Superior mesenteric artery syndrome, also known as Wilkie's syndrome, is a rare vascular disease caused by the anomalous course of the superior mesenteric artery arising from the abdominal aorta with a smaller angle than the norm (<22°). The reduced angle compresses the structures situated between the aorta and the superior mesenteric artery, such as the duodenum and left renal vein; this can determine painful crises, intestinal subocclusions, and left varicocele. This syndrome can be congenital or acquired...

Crossed fused renal ectopia is a rare congenital anomaly, and is mostly detected incidentally. A 45-year-old man, during investigation for recurrent abdominal pain, was found to have an empty left renal fossa and right crossed renal ectopia with fusion on ultrasonography. In the present case, there were no abnormalities and/or alteration of the renal function. Abdominal tomography scan with contrast medium confirmed the diagnosis. Ectopic kidney is often associated with other abnormal situations such as agenesis, vascular malformation, incontinence, a palpable abdominal mass, urinary tract infection, high incidence of stone formation, and genital anomalies...

Adrenal trauma is rarely encountered in the pediatric population, often as a component of multi-organ injury and often presenting with hematoma formation. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) is the established imaging modality both for initial evaluation and follow-up of patients with blunt abdominal trauma. In children, radiation exposure should be minimized and alternative imaging strategies are needed. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) has recently been successfully used for evaluation of patients with hepatic, renal and splenic injury...

Hydatid disease is an endemic zoonosis, and patients are generally from cattle- and sheep-raising regions of the world, such as Central Europe, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, China, South America, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Russia (Lewall and McCorkell in Radiology 155:773-775, 1985). Furthermore, hydatid cyst is a disease of immigrants in non-endemic countries and in developed countries (Stojkovic et al. in PLoS Negl Trop Dis 6:e1880, 2012). The most common affected organs are liver and lungs...

The aim of this Pictorial Essay is to evaluate the feasibility in the clinical practice of CEUS destruction/replenishment method and time intensity curve (TIC) analysis using the available software in patients with Crohn's disease. The ultrasound (US) procedure using contrast agent is briefly described, elaboration and analysis of the US sequences are explained in detail, and some advantages and disadvantages of the method are highlighted. The Authors suggest that the destruction/replenishment method is useful and time-saving in Crohn's disease if multiple measurements are required on intestinal portions adjacent to each other or in different locations...

Purpose: β-thalassemia major (β-TM) patients had an increased incidence of cardiovascular complications secondary to iron overload. They showed early carotid atherosclerosis as showed by increased carotid intima media thickness (CIMT) that may occur early even when significant iron overload is absent. We aimed to test the diagnostic performance of CIMT measurement by Doppler ultrasonography as a structural indicator for premature atherosclerosis in β-TM patients. Methods: Case-control study included 42 β-TM patients (24 males and 18 females) aged from 3 to 30 years and 36 age- and sex-matched healthy controls...

Purpose: Peripheral nerves frequently travel close to the bone surface and are, therefore, prone to elastosonographic "bone-proximity" hardening artifacts. The impact of these artifacts on quantitative measurements of median nerve stiffness performed by shear wave elastosonography has not been explored. Our aim was to assess normal median nerve stiffness values at various locations. Materials and methods: Thirty-six healthy volunteers (24 women and 12 men) aged between 25 and 40 years were evaluated...

Objectives: To estimate, on the basis of anthropometric and demographic variables, the depth (Dp) and diameter (Dm) of femoral and jugular vessels, which have been located and measured by ultrasound, in pediatric patients. Method: 750 measurements of Dp and Dm of the femoral vein (FV), femoral artery (FA) and internal jugular vein (IJV) were made in 125 pediatric patients. The values were correlated with patients' sex, weight, age, size and body surface area (BSA)...

Purpose: The distinction between active inflammation and fibrosis of the bowel wall is essential for therapeutic decisions in stricturing Crohn's disease. We aimed to assess whether real-time elastography (RTE) with strain ratio measurement could be useful in differentiating fibrotic from inflamed bowel strictures and to evaluate the possible relationship between US techniques and the histology of the stenotic bowel wall. Materials and methods: Bowel ultrasonography (including RTE, color-Doppler and CEUS examination) was prospectively evaluated in 26 patients with symptomatic stricturing Crohn's disease, before surgery...

Purpose: To validate the accuracy of previously published equations that estimate pleural effusion volume using ultrasonography. Methods: Only equations using simple measurements were tested. Three measurements were taken at the posterior axillary line for each case with effusion: lateral height of effusion (H), distance between collapsed lung and chest wall (C) and distance between lung and diaphragm (D). Cases whose effusion was aspirated to dryness were included and drained volume was recorded...

Peripheral nerve tumors are often evaluated with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), although there are many advantages offered with high-resolution ultrasonography (HRUS). This case report emphasizes the value of HRUS in the diagnosis and management of a patient with a cystic radial nerve Schwannoma. In addition, information on tumor stiffness, obtained with shear-wave sonoelastography (SWE), is presented.

Acute swelling and discoloration of scrotum in new born can have many localized causes like testicular torsion, inguinal hernia, scrotal or testicular edema, hydrocele, or even remote causes like adrenal hemorrhage. We report a neonate of adrenal hemorrhage presenting clinically as acute scrotum misguiding the clinician to rule out a local scrotal pathology. As the local clinical examination is not reliable in a newborn, it definitely requires an imaging evaluation to establish the diagnosis. This case report emphasizes being aware of the clinical association of acute adrenal hemorrhage and an acute scrotum and the role of ultrasonography in the evaluation of the various differential diagnoses leading to an acute scrotum...

The Copeman nodule is a disease of the subcutaneous soft tissue consisting in subcutaneous adipose tissue herniation through the superficial muscular fascia. A 30-year-old female patient presented with chronic left pain just above the iliac crest. Ultrasound examination showed subcutaneous adipose tissue herniation through the superficial muscular fascia with a hernia gap of 15.9 mm in diameter. Then the patient underwent surgery under local anesthesia with suturing of the hernia gap and immediate regression of chronic pain...

BACKGROUND: Chlamydia pneumonia is reported to account for a relatively large number of cases of CAP. In elderly patients in particular, the clinical presentation can be a severe form of diffuse interstitial pneumonia. The chest X-ray presentation is aspecific. Lung US can show a typical pattern of diffuse interstitial lung syndrome; in some cases, like the present one, the association of multiple B lines with a coarse and thickened pleural line points to a more likely diagnosis of interstitial pneumonia...

A 36-year-old man was admitted to the emergency department of "SS Annunziata" hospital in Chieti complaining of a sharp chest pain arisen some hours before admission. On examination, the patient looked sweaty; his vital signs showed tachycardia and augmented breath rate; sinus tachycardia and normal ventricular repolarization were observed on ECG, and no abnormalities were observed in the echoscan of the hearth. According to the clinical and electrocardiographic findings, and to previous episode of DVT in anamnesis, a thorax CT scan was performed in order to rule out pulmonary embolism...

The purpose of this case report is to describe the value of musculoskeletal ultrasound (US) in diagnosing both distal intersection syndrome (DIS) and rupture of the extensor pollicis longus (EPL) tendon in the same patient. A 38-year-old female presented for evaluation of a painful bump of unknown etiology on the dorsolateral aspect of her non-dominant wrist. US demonstrated tenosynovitis distal to Lister's tubercle of the EPL and extensor carpi radialis tendon sheaths, consistent with DIS. Immobilization therapy was employed, during which time the patient suffered rupture of the EPL tendon...
