UNLABELLED: The purpose of this study was to investigate the potential correlation between the presence and size of the cisterna chyli (CC) on computed tomography (CT) and the presence of cardiovascular disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Out of a 3000-patient cohort 2599 patients who received a CT examination of the chest and/or abdomen with measurable inferior vena cava and azygos vein were included in this retrospective study. To assess the presence of cardiovascular disease the following parameters were recorded from the PACS or clinical information system: diameter of vena cava and azygos vein, presence of ascitis, serum creatinine, history of congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease or arterial hypertension and medication (diuretics, beta-blocker)...

INTRODUCTION: Chylous ascites is a rare complication after a number of abdominal and retroperitoneal surgeries. Althought conservative treatment may be curative, a reoperation to sell out the open megalymphatics in the operative field may be needed. PATIENT AND METHOD: A 60 year-old woman was treated with a laparoscopic radical nephrectomy for a 9.5x7.5 cm, pT2 pN0 tumor. A carefull dissection of the renal hilium was performed, distal ureter was clipped and several gross peritumoral lymphatic vessels were clipped or coagulated, with no inmediate complications...

Ascites is the most common complications of patients with cirrhosis. The treatment of ascites has been based on the ascitic volume. MODERATE ASCITIS: an oral diuretic and a low-salt diet are indicated. Efficacy can be assessed from the weight curve but also from tolerance. MAJOR ASCITIS: evacuation via a paracenthesis should be done in a single session associated with vascular filling to prevent hypovolemia. Immediately after drainage, an oral diuretic is given to prevent recurrence. REFRACTORY ASCITIS: different therapeutic options include iterative paracenthesis, peritoneal-jugular-shunt and transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt...

We report the first case of secondary pneumococcal peritonitis associated with acute jejunitis in a 52-year-old homeless Child-Pugh C cirrhotic man without ascitis. The patient was admitted with clinical signs of peritonitis, and jaundice. Morphologic examination was unremarkable. A laparotomy revealed a diffuse peritonitis, and an acute jejunitis with prenecrotic lesion. The lesion was located within the first centimeters of the jejunum, immediately after the duodeno-jejunal angle, extented on 15 cm. A resection of the first 15 cm of the jejunum was performed with duodeno-jejunal side-to-side manual anastomosis...

During a retrospective review of more than 1,000 pediatric pancreas specimens obtained by autopsy or biopsy, 13 cases of primitive interstitial pancreatitis (PIP) were identified. The morphologic diagnosis of PIP is based on the following histological features: presence of abundant, inspissated, PAS-negative intraductal secretions, overdistension and focal rupture of the intrapancreatic ducts, and presence of a focal, extensive inflammatory infiltrate. PIP should be distinguished from cystic fibrosis, necrotizing pancreatitis, and passive secondary interstitial infiltrates associated with extensive retroperitoneal cellulitis caused by septicemia or abdominal surgery...
