INTRODUCTION: Cervical Sympathetic Chain Schwannomas (CSCS) of the carotid sheath are rare neoplasms that can be misdiagnosed on imaging. The following case documents a rare incident of a misdiagnosed CSCS with unusual outcomes of permanent Horner's syndrome and facial pain. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 36-year-old female presented with a slow-growing neck mass. CT and MRI led to a preoperative diagnosis of vagus nerve schwannoma (VNS). However, surgical treatment revealed the mass to be involved with the cervical sympathetic chain rather than the vagus nerve...

INTRODUCTION: The 2010 World Health Organization classification of intraductal neoplasms of the pancreas includes intraductal tubulopapillary neoplasms (ITPNs) and intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms, the latter being a rare and new concept. ITPN sometimes cause acute pancreatitis; therefore, distinguishing ITPN from idiopathic acute pancreatitis is important but challenging. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We present the case of a 72-year-old male who had recurrent pancreatitis for the past 2 years, his diagnosis was idiopathic acute pancreatitis...

INTRODUCTION: Postoperative duodenal-cutaneous fistula represents a rare and very complex problem. In most cases operative management becomes necessary, but only after local and systemic stabilization and sepsis control. CASE PRESENTATION: A 39-year-old man was admitted for surgical management of laparostomy and pyloro-duodenostomy of the first (DI) and second (DII) duodenal segments with one year of evolution, as a complication of several surgical interventions...

INTRODUCTION: Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) occasionally involve formation of fistulas with other adjacent organs. Pancreatobiliary fistulas associated with IPMNs are rare, but affected patients often develop obstructive jaundice and cholangitis. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 79-year-old man was referred to our hospital for evaluation of abnormal biliary enzymes. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography demonstrated multiple cystic lesions with septa in the pancreatic head and fistulas between the cystic lesions and common bile duct...

INTRODUCTION: The diagnostic approach to patients with mediastinal pathology is not always simple and an improper diagnostic work-up can lead to significant diagnosis delay. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report on the case of a young woman who was admitted to the Emergency Department complaining of thoracic pain, dyspnoea, fever and productive cough. The physical examination showed a painful swelling over the sternum's upper left margin, which had become evident 4 months earlier...

INTRODUCTION: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer, whereas lymphoma is the sixth leading cause of cancer death, 90% of which corresponds to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). The association of these two primary tumors, a solid tumor with an hematological malignancy, is very uncommon. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report the case of a 47-year-old man who presented with abdominal pain, a right upper quadrant mass and 12 kg of weight loss in 9 months...

INTRODUCTION: Closed flexor tendon rupture after a malunited distal radius fracture is rare and usually becomes apparent early after the fracture. Most cases are accompanied by a severe distal radio-ulnar joint capsule injury, wherein bone protrusion (as a spur) directly stresses the tendons. We experienced a nonspecific flexor tendon rupture associated with an old fracture and the presence of collagen disease. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 63-year-old woman presented with delayed complete rupture of the flexor digitorum profundus (FDP) of the fifth digit...

INTRODUCTION: Massive splenomegaly is indicated by spleen weight exceeding 1000 g and largest spleen dimension greater than 20 cm Poulin et al. (1998). In many cases, splenectomy is the treatment of choice for massive splenomegaly because it releases the pressure on adjacent organs and also provides a definitive histopathological diagnosis of the underlying cause Iriyama et al. (2010), Radhakrishnan (2018). PRESENTATION OF CASE: Herein we present a clinical case of disseminated diffuse large B - cell lymphoma, clinical stage IV, with massive splenomegaly...

INTRODUCTION: Cerebral amyloid angiopathy-related inflammation (CAA-ri), a rare and treatable variant of cerebral amyloid angiopathy, lacks specific imaging and clinical features, and requires invasive brain biopsy to confirm the diagnosis. We report the case of a patient with nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) caused by CAA-ri in the right occipital lobe. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 78-year-old man with a history of hypertension and rheumatoid arthritis was admitted to our hospital following an episode of seizures...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical drains are inserted into the wound after an arthroscopic knee procedure mainly to decrease fluid collection after the operation. The use of postoperative surgical drains remains controversial. CASE PRESENTATION: This report presents a rare case of a forgotten retained drain that was accidentally found inside a knee 10 years after an arthroscopic procedure. The drain was removed without any complications. DISCUSSION: A retained and broken drain during removal is a very rare and preventable complication that can be stressful for both the patient and surgeon...

INTRODUCTION: Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. The small intestine is the second-most frequent location where GISTs occur after the stomach. Attention should be paid to small intestinal GISTs because they infrequently present with acute abdomen, which necessitates emergency surgery. This report describes a patient with a small intestinal GIST developing a giant intratumoral abscess, in whom emergency surgery was performed...

INTRODUCTION: Most of the case reports about high type iatrogenic hepatic duct injuries reports how to treat and make Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy below the junction of the liver immediately after this condition is recognised during surgical procedure when the injury was made. Hereby we present a case where we made Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy without transhepatic billiary stent and also without Witzel drainage one month after the iatrogenic injury. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 21-year-old woman suffered from iatrogenic high transectional lesion of both hepatic ducts during laparoscopic cholecystectomy in a local hospital...

INTRODUCTION: Postpartum or peripartum hemorrhage (PPH) is a major cause of maternal death worldwide. Fertility preserving second stage interventions following uterotonic medications may include compression sutures, uterine balloon tamponade and ligation or embolization of arteries. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We present a case of PPH where a novel "uterine sandwich" approach (combination of chitosan-covered gauze with intrauterine balloon tamponade) was effectively used to stop further blood loss and prevented more invasive second stage interventions...

INTRODUCTION: Situs inversus is a rare congenital anomalyin which the thoracic and abdominal organs are sited on the opposite side to that of normal anatomy. Its etiology is still unknown. It is classified into situs inversus partialis and situs inversus totalis. It is discovered incidentally in most cases. Any surgical intervention for such patients may encounter intra-operative technical difficulties due to anatomical differences, particularly if a laparoscopic approach is adopted, as in bariatric surgeries where the obesity itself opposes an added surgical challenge...

INTRODUCTION: Aneurysms of the splenic artery (SAA) located at the hilum of the spleen are not well fit for endovascular or laparoscopic treatment. Open surgery may still be the best option of treatment. PRESENTATION OF CASES: We report the cases of 3 female patients of a mean age of 59 years (range, 45-68 years) with a hilar (n = 2) or parahilar (n = 1) SAA undergoing successful open surgical resection, through a short left subcostal access. Recovery was uneventful and mean, postoperative length of stay was 4 days (range, 3-5 days)...

INTRODUCTION: Spontaneous intraperitoneal bladder rupture can present with symptoms of acute abdomen. The associated high mortality rate is attributed to the delay in diagnosis, and the possibility of the presence of a bladder carcinoma contributes to high mortality as well. CASE PRESENTATION: We present a case of spontaneous intraperitoneal bladder rupture associated with squamous cell carcinoma managed with partial cystectomy. DISCUSSION: The incidence of this condition is (1:126,000) but with high mortality rate...

INTRODUCTION: Although an uncommon form of admission to a burns centre, the deep, penetrating nature of noxious currents mean that electrical burns have the most catastrophic consequences of all burn injuries. Understanding the physics of electricity is crucial to explaining the mechanisms of tissue damage and organ failure in electrical injuries which necessitate special management above and beyond that of regular thermal burns. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We present a young man who suffered significant occupation-related electrical burns that was complicated by compartment syndrome, rhabdomyolysis and acute kidney injury...
