Retronychia, the posterior embedding of the nail bed into the proximal nail fold, can be a complex clinical dermatologic diagnosis that may mimic other inflammatory ungual diseases or tumors of the nail. It has been related to a history of severe systemic conditions that secondarily affect the nail matrix and is commonly associated with onychomadesis. We present a case of retronychia of the foot with a purely traumatic origin, nonconcomitant with onychomadesis, that was diagnosed by color Doppler ultrasound in a long-time practitioner of martial arts who was otherwise healthy...

INTRODUCTION: Positron emission tomography (PET) is a mainstay in the preoperative evaluation of various cancers. In gastric cancer however, its role in the initial staging remains contentious. Presented is a case series of three gastric patients wherein the use of fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) PET/CT (computer tomography) as part of the initial staging was inconsequential to treatment, demonstrating its limited role in the staging of primary gastric cancer. METHODS: We analyzed retrospective data from 12/1/2010 to 10/31/2016 of patient with gastric cancer whose initial staging included a PET/CT...

A simple ultrasound assisted-cloud point extraction (UA-CPE) method was developed and combined with flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) for pre-concentration and indirect determination of the flavor enhancer maltol in foods and beverages. The method is based on reduction of Cu(II) to Cu(I) by maltol at pH 6.5, and subsequent selective interaction of Cu(I) with bathocuproine (BCP) to form a ternary complex in presence of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS). Under the optimized conditions, pre-concentration of a 35mL sample solution allowed detection of 1...

Histoplasma capsulatum is a saprophytic fungus that in immunocompetent individuals causes self-limited pulmonary infection; however, in immunosuppressed patients involvement of the reticuloendothelial system, alimentary tract, urinary tract, and central nervous system is fairly common. Rarely patients present with bilateral adrenal masses which mimic tuberculosis and metastasis on radiology because of associated central necrosis. Ultrasound guided FNAC aided by special stains like Periodic Acid Schiff (PAS) and Gomori Methenamine Silver (GMS) may help in early diagnosis in such dubious cases...

Musculoskeletal ultrasonography is gaining favor in the evaluation of enthesitis in patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Imaging modalities have shown that the enthesis of the distal interphalangeal joint has a close relationship to the nail itself. Studies have focused on the structure and morphology of nails to determine an association between psoriasis nail changes and the presence or severity of PsA. With the use of higher frequency probes, power Doppler (PD) can determine subclinical inflammation of the area under ultrasound examination...

BACKGROUND: Patients with nail psoriasis have a higher prevalence of psoriatic arthritis; however, the pathogenetic relationship between these two disorders is as yet unclear. Entheses have been suggested as disease epicenter, which might explain the pathogenesis on an anatomical level. OBJECTIVE: To contribute to the elucidation of the hypothesis as regards the anatomical link between nail psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, with the extensor enthesis of the distal interphalangeal joint as the epicenter...

Xanthogranulomatous inflammation of the pancreas is an extremely rare entity mimicking pancreatic neoplasia. Elevation of tumor markers has seldom been reported in xanthogranulomatous inflammation of the pancreas, rendering the diagnosis difficult and highlighting the importance of a meticulous histopathological examination. A 58-year-old male presented with severe abdominal pain and anorexia for six months. A heterogeneously enhancing solid cystic mass was detected in the pancreatic head on contrast enhanced computed tomography...

Ultrasound (US) is a rapidly evolving technique that is gaining increasing success in the assessment of psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Recently, new research avenues have been opened, and these are focused on the potential of US for the assessment of extra musculoskeletal areas such as skin and nails. This permits work on the concept of 'holistic US assessment of PsA'. Areas covered: Here, we analyze the potential role of US in the global assessment of PsA. Additionally, we provide the current evidence supporting its application in routine clinical practice...

BACKGROUND: Although subclinical enthesopathy is a well-established diagnostic criterion for psoriatic arthritis (PsA), it is frequently overlooked, as many patients are asymptomatic. The possibility of finding a clinical clue predicting enthesopathy would help clinicians establish an early diagnosis of PsA. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A prospective single-center study of a total of 90 patients with psoriasis was conducted to assess the presence of entheseal abnormalities as detected by ultrasound, and to determine any correlation with nail involvement...
