contarini syndrome

José M Porcel, M Carmen Civit, Silvia Bielsa, Richard W Light
Bilateral pleural effusions usually have a single causative factor, such as heart failure or malignancy. Contarini's syndrome refers to the occurrence of bilateral pleural fluid accumulation which can be explained by a different cause for each side. Literature search finds, along with 5 new descriptions from our center, totaled 12 cases. A frequent combination is that of a parapneumonic effusion that triggers heart failure, which in turn produces a contralateral transudate.

This paper reports a rare complication of ovarian cancer, emphasising the role of computed tomographic scanning (CT) in the evaluation of the disease. The aetiology of the case is discussed with reference to a similar clinical case originally reported in 1667.

A leukemic patient presented with bilateral pleural effusions. The effusions were markedly different in their characteristics; left-sided staphylococcal empyema and right-sided lymphocytic effusion. To our knowledge, there are no cases of this type reported in the modern literature. The importance of bilateral diagnostic thoracocentesis in patients on immunosuppressant therapy is emphasized.

A new case of Goltz's syndrome, focal dermal hypoplasia, is documented. The literature is reviewed. The composite individuality warrants considering Golt'z syndrome a separate syndrome in the ectodermal dysplasias. Caution against diagnosing "condyloma-like" lesions occurring in ectodermally dysplastic patients as condyloma acuminatum is urged. Neoplastic transformation and the tendency to recurrence after surgical exicision of the cutaneous angiofibromas pose a difficult problem in surgical management.
