Scleroderma is a systemic disease of collagen deposition resulting in fibrosis of small arteries and arterioles. It commonly affects the skin, lungs, and gastrointestinal tract. The most common site of GI tract involvement is the esophagus. We present the case report of a 44year old female with scleroderma esophagus and severe reflux which was successfully treated with robotic dor fundoplication. Because of the wide variety of symptoms with which this problem can present, a tailored approach taking into consideration the patient's symptomatology and findings during diagnostic work-up was implemented with good results...

INTRODUCTION: Gastric bezoars are a rare condition associated with situations of gastric dysmotility and prior gastric surgery, though sometimes they can present without any risk factor. We describe the first successful treatment in medical literature of a large gastric bezoar in the outpatient setting through endoscopic fragmentation. CASE PRESENTATION: A 76-year-old man was referred to our outpatient endoscopy clinic because of dyspepsia and epigastric pain. Upper GI endoscopy with a standard endoscope revealed a 10-cm-diameter gastric phytobezoar with necrotic pressure ulcer of the angulus...

INTRODUCTION: The thrust plate hip prosthesis (TPP; Zimmer, Winterthur, Switzerland) is a hip prosthesis that is no longer in production. Few reports have focused on periprosthetic fractures following total hip arthroplasty (THA) with the use of a TPP. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report a 57-year-old woman with a periprosthetic femoral fracture 13 years after THA with the use of a TPP. A plain radiograph showed a displaced subtrochanteric fracture of the right femur just below the distal tip of the lateral plate without implant loosening...

INTRODUCTION: Cardiac myxoma is a benign neoplasm representing the most common primary cardiac tumor in adults, however it is unusual in neonates. It is represented by an endocardial mass that occupies the cardiac chamber. Although the majority of myxomas are attached to the fossa ovalis of the interatrial septum, they also attach to the walls of the cardiac chambers and to valve leaflets surfaces. Approximately 75% of myxomas are found in the left atrium, 20% are located in the right atrium, and rarely in the ventricles...

INTRODUCTION: There are few cases of synchronous rectal adenocarcinoma revealed by an anal fistula. The diagnosis of synchronous mucinous adenocarcinoma of the recto sigmoid and anal canal remains difficult. The chronic anal fistula can be mistaken as the common manifestation of a benign perianal abscess or fistula. CASE PRESENTATION: We present a rare case of a Greek Caucasian 79year old male patient with anal fistula and a recurrent perianal abscess who subsequently was found to have developed synchronous rectosigmoid and perianal mucinous adenocarcinoma on biopsy...

INTRODUCTION: Extragastrointestinal stromal tumours (EGISTs) are very uncommon compared to their gastrointestinal counterparts. Most of them originate from the intestinal mesentery and the omentum. CASE REPORT: A 70 year-old Caucasian woman presented with a bulky abdominal mass which on laparotomy was found to originate from the lesser omentum and was completely resected. Histological examination revealed spindle cells with severe pleomorphism and high mitotic activity...

INTRODUCTION: Mixed hepatocellular and cholangiocarcinoma tumors (MHCC) are described in the literature, as are the more rare mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinomas (MANC) of hepatobiliary origin. Only two cases of tumors with characteristics of all three histologies/phenotypes have been previously described in one Chinese study. PRESENTATION OF CASE: Herein we report clinical, microscopic and molecular features of a 25cm mixed hepatic tumor with hepatocellular, cholangiocarcinoma and neuroendocrine differentiation arising in an otherwise healthy 19-year-old North American Caucasian male without any identifiable risk factors...

This is a case report of an aggressive, diffusely disseminated Stage IV rectal gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) in a 57-year-old male that presented for symptoms of malaise, constipation, and twenty pound weight loss in 2 months. Upon rectal examination, a hard 4centimeter submucosal mass was found at the 9-12 o'clock position. Liver and lung metastases were visualized on computerized tomography (CT) of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis on metastatic work-up. He was deemed a poor surgical candidate due to diffuse metastatic disease and referred for palliative chemotherapy...

Stensen duct injury has been reported in the medical literature following penetrating injuries of the cheek or by exeresis of tumors of the cheek or of the oral mucosa. This type of physical trauma often arises from injuries as a result being assaulted (e.g. with knife) or from road accidents. The complexity of the damage to the anatomical structures and the causative agent sometimes makes the diagnosis difficult. We report on a clinical case of managemenent Stensen duct injury secondary of goring by a cow horn...

Sonia T Orcutt, Daniel A Anaya, Mokenge Malafa
INTRODUCTION: Appendiceal mucoceles encompass neoplastic and non-neoplastic causes of a distended Appendix filled with mucus. Appendectomy is recommended when an appendiceal mucocele is identified, incidentally or otherwise, in the event it is secondary to a malignancy. For an intact mucocele, it is critically important to avoid rupturing the mucocele during resection, as rupture of a neoplastic mucocele can result in pseudomyxoma peritonei, or mucin deposits in the peritoneum, which is associated with long-term morbidity and mortality...

BACKGROUND: The external branch of the Superior Laryngeal nerve (EBSLN) is at high risk of injury in surgery for large multinodular goitre (MNG) since the upper pole is high in the neck, well cephalad to the EBSLN. We present a technique of drawing the lobe caudally by retrograde thyroidectomy in order to minimize nerve injury. DESIGN & METHOD: All patients having surgery for benign MNG were included. Cases with previous thyroid surgery, malignant and toxic disease were excluded...

Rosai-Dorfman Disease (RDD) is a rare disease that normally presents with bilateral cervical lymph node enlargement. Systemic symptoms of fever and weight loss may be present but patients are usually asymptomatic. This benign disease tends to regress on its own without treatment but there have been cases that required treatment with steroids or chemotherapeutic regimes. Extranodal disease in the breast is extremely rare, with only three cases identified in the male breast. The patient in this study presented with an asymptomatic right breast lump identified incidentally...
