INTRODUCTION: Troncular pylephlebitis, defined as septic thrombophlebitis of the portal vein, is usually secondary to suppurative infection from the regions drained by the portal system. Therefore, pylephlebitis can occur from the portal vein main tributaries. The occurrence of mesenteric pylephlebitis in Crohn's disease is extremely rare. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We describe a case of septic shock due to mesenteric pylephlebitis in a 47 years old male affected with Crohn's disease...

INTRODUCTION: Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE) is a rare benign reactive inflammatory lesion. The usual presentation is a single or multiple skin nodules of the head and neck. Involvement of the hand is very rare and there have been no comprehensive reviews on ALHE of the upper limb. In this paper, we report on a case involving the common digital artery of the hand. We also review the literature and offer two classification systems for upper limb lesions: One according to the primary structure involved, and the other according to the presentation with either single or multiple lesions...

INTRODUCTION: Hepatic arterial liver flow is renowned for its redundancy. Previous studies have demonstrated that the common hepatic artery is not essential for liver survival. We present a case of a 31year-old involved in a high-speed motor vehicle accident whose liver survived thanks to the presence of an accessory hepatic artery. PRESENTATON OF THE CASE: We present the case of a 31year-old male who sustained a traumatic injury of the proper hepatic artery following a motor vehicle accident...

INTRODUCTION: The worldwide incidence of traumatic fractures has been growing over the last years due to the progressive aging of the population. Today, the increase of arthroplasty procedures in orthopaedic surgery is related to a high rate of peri-prosthetic fractures. Healing of the fracture is a multifactorial metabolic process; if these factors are impaired, healing process could be interrupted resulting in non-union. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report our experience about a case of a humeral diaphysis non-union secondary to peri-prosthetic fracture (reverse shoulder arthroplasty) treated by conservative approach...

INTRODUCTION: Paragangliomas (PG) are rare tumors derived from chromaffin cells that are located outside the adrenal gland and are capable of producing catecholamines. The treatment is based on a surgical resection, and there is controversy regarding the usefulness of previously carrying out an embolization and what is the most adequate surgical approach. CLINICAL CASE: We will present a 17-year-old woman with a retroperitoneal tumour in contact with the aorta and the inferior vena cava, treated with embolization prior to the surgical resection via laparotomy...

INTRODUCTION: Numerous publications regarding lung torsion have reported lobar torsion after lobectomy. On the other hand, torsion of the remaining segment after segmentectomy is extremely rare. We herein report a rare case of lingular segment torsion following a left upper division segmentectomy. CASE: A 68-year old female underwent thoracoscopic segmentectomy of the left upper division. She underwent chest radiography immediately after the initial surgery, which revealed complete expansion on the operated side...

Tarlov cysts were first described in 1938 as an incidental finding at autopsy. The cysts are usually diagnosed on MRI, which reveals the lesion arising from the sacral nerve root near the dorsal root ganglion. Symptomatic sacral perineural cysts are uncommon and it is recommended to consider Tarlov cyst as a diagnostic of exclusion. We report a case of a patient with voluminous bilateral L5 and S1 Tarlov cyst, and right hip osteonecrosis to increase the awareness in the orthopaedic community. A 57-year-old female, in good health, with chronic low back pain since 20 years, presented suddenly right buttock pain, right inguinal fold pain and low back pain for two months, with inability to walk and to sit down...

INTRODUCTION: Paraduodenal pancreatitis (PP) is an under-recognized form of focal chronic or recurrent pancreatitis. Since PP presents with non-specific symptoms and shares radiological and histopathological features with other entities, it can be challenging to diagnose. PRESENTATION OF CASE REPORT: Herein, a case of a 64 year-old Caucasian male with PP presenting with recurrent gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) is detailed. Over the course of two years, he underwent multiple balloon dilatations for symptom management...

AIM: Thymectomy is the main treatment for thymoma and patients with myasthenia gravis (MG). The traditional approach is through a median sternotomy, but, recently, thymectomy through minimally invasive approaches is increasingly performed. Our purpose is an analysis and discussion of the clinical presentation, the diagnostic procedures and the surgical technique. We also consider post-operative complications and results, over a period of 5 years (May 2011-June 2016), in thymic masses admitted in our Thoracic Surgery Unit...

INTRODUCTION: Sclerosing angiomatoid nodular transformation (SANT) of spleen is a new entity defined as a benign pathologic lesion. Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) shows weak accumulation, thereby ruling out the malignancy in preoperative diagnosis is difficult. Herein, we reported a case of shrinking SANT with increased FDG accumulation during a 5-year follow-up period, which was treated by laparoscopic splenectomy. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 64-year-old female had been referred to our hospital for the evaluation of a splenic tumor...
