We presented a case of hemothorax secondary to inferior vena cava (IVC) aneurysm. A 47-year-old woman was presented to our hospital with nausea, vomiting, and right superior abdominal pain. There was pleural effusion on the right side of the posteroanterior chest x-ray for which a thoracentesis was performed and serohemorrhagic fluid was determined. Biochemical tests showed a mixed transudate and hemorrhage (hemothorax). Cytology was negative for malignancy. Computed tomography revealed a right-sided pleural effusion and a suprahepatic mass that was neighboring IVC and right atrium...

Aerococcus viridans is a gram-positive, catalase and oxidase negative, microaerophylic and non-motile coccus which is rarely associated with human infections such as endocarditis, meningitis, artritis and bacteremia. We report a case of bacteremia due to A. viridans in a 61-years-old man with malignant gall bladder neoplasm. The patient underwent a surgical operation and on the 5th day of operation he had severe abdominal pain, vomiting, high fever and discharge from operation site. He was transferred to intensive care unit and blood cultures were obtained...

A 26-year-old male patient presented with complaints of pain, dyspnea, and hemoptysis of one-week history, while on oral anticoagulation treatment that had been started two years before upon the diagnosis of pulmonary thromboembolism. Transthoracic echocardiography showed two mass lesions in the right atrium and inferior vena cava, measuring 3.5x3 cm and 1.5x1 cm, respectively. The possibility of vegetation or secondary cardiac tumor was excluded by further examinations and, considering consistent oral anticoagulation, no other cause could be determined related to thrombus formation...

Total knee replacement (TKR) is one of the most painful orthopedic surgical procedures. This study was aimed to investigate the effect of a single-shot preoperative 3-in-1 femoral nerve block on postoperative pain by using 0.375% ropivacaine, and on the consumption of morphine by using PCA following the TKR surgery. Side effects were also evaluated in this setting. 34 patients were included in this study. Group R (n=17) received a 3-in-1 femoral nerve block (FNB) with 40 mll of ropivacaine 0.375%. Group S (n=17) received only a 2 mg loading dose of morphine 30 minutes before the end of surgery, and no block was performed...

Internal hernia is an unusal cause of intestinal obstruction. Herniation related to epiploic appendix is a very rare entity. We herein report a case of internal herniation due to an adhesion between epiploic appendixes and the greater omentum. A 71-year-old woman complaining of abdominal pain and intermittent nausea was operated on with the pre-operative diagnosis of intestinal obstruction. Three epiploic appendixes of the left side of the transverse colon and the corresponding part of the greater omentum had created a tunnel and a loop of small bowel 25 cm in length was strangulated...

We present a patient with Fabry disease with remarkable diagnostic findings and gluten-sensitive enteropathy. An 11-year-old girl was admitted to hospital with weight loss, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, flank pain, acroparesthesia, and painful extremities. Her mother had end-stage renal failure secondary to Fabry disease. On physical examination, she had growth retardation. Ophthalmological examination showed characteristic whorl-like corneal opacities and Fabry disease was confirmed with low alpha-galactosidase A (alpha-gal A) activity...

We report on a 32-year-old patient with a 9 month history of pain of the mid-third of his sternum. The laboratory results as well as other diagnostical methods (MRI and bone scintigraphy) were negative. The ultrasound examination revealed an interruption of the corticalis reflex beneath the sternal synchondrosis of a length of 4 cm. Under suspicion of an osteolysis we performed an open biopsy. The histological analysis made the diagnosis of a solitary myeloma. Therefore ultrasonography is able to depict tumerous infiltrations of the sternum if the anterior corticalis is involved and allows therapeutical consequences...

A 10-year-old boy on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis had low-grade fever, pain and tenderness of the right shoulder; he had no history of infection or exposure to tuberculosis. The underlying granulomatous infection was diagnosed by histological examination of bone and the polymerase chain reaction with primer sequences specific for Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Special stains and cultures were negative. The initiation of antituberculous therapy was followed by a sharp improvement in the fever, malaise and shoulder pain within several weeks...
