Clear cell neuroendocrine tumor (NET) of the pancreas is found in von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease, multiple endocrine neoplasia type I (MEN I), and sporadic form. Clear cell NETs are often misdiagnosed as metastatic renal cell carcinoma. A 47-year-old woman with VHL was found to have a mass in the pancreatic tail and two masses in the right kidney with two cysts. A distal pancreatectomy and right radical nephrectomy were performed. The pancreatic lesion was a well-circumscribed, golden-yellow solid mass, which was lobulated by septal fibrosis...

Background: Computed tomography (CT) of the lungs is the gold standard for assessing the extent of structural changes in the lungs. Spirometry-controlled chest CT (SCCCT) has improved the usefulness of CT by standardising inspiratory and expiratory lung volumes during imaging. This was a single-centre cross-sectional study in children with cystic fibrosis (CF). Using SCCCT we wished to investigate the association between the quantity and extent of structural lung changes and pulmonary function outcomes, and prevalence of known CF lung pathogens...

Pericardial cysts are rare with an incidence of about 1 in every 100,000 persons and one in 10 pericardial cysts may actually be a pericardial diverticulum. Pericardial cysts and diverticula share similar developmental origin and may appear as an incidental finding in chest roentgenogram in an asymptomatic patient. CT scan is considered as best modality for diagnosis and delineation of the surrounding anatomy. Cardiac MRI is recommended in the evaluation of the compressive effects caused by the pericardial cysts...

An 18-year-old man presented with spontaneous severe epigastric pain, progressing and radiating to back since 3 days. It was associated with epigastric tenderness, bilious vomiting and jaundice. He had been intermittently experiencing these symptoms for the last 1 year. No known comorbid. Ultrasound showed a poorly visualised heterogeneous focus at porta hepatis; considering poor visualisation, this might represent an enlarged calcified lymph node or cystic duct calculus causing extrinsic compression or a large sludge ball within the common bile duct (CBD), leading to dilatation of common hepatic duct and intrahepatic biliary system...

BACKGROUND: Over the years, most of the deep brain stimulation (DBS) complications described have been mainly related to the surgery itself or the stimulation. Only a few authors have dealt with chronic complications or complications due to implanted material. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed complications beyond the 1st month after surgery in 249 patients undergoing DBS at our site for 16 years, with 321 interventions overall. RESULTS: Our results show that infection is the most frequent delayed complication (12...

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a prevalent disorder characterized by renal cysts that lead to kidney failure. Various signaling pathways have been targeted to stop disease progression, but most interventions still focus on alleviating PKD-associated symptoms. The mechanistic complexity of the disease, as well as the lack of functional in vitro assays for compound testing, has made drug discovery for PKD challenging. To identify modulators of PKD, Pkd1(-/-) kidney tubule epithelial cells were applied to a scalable and automated 3D cyst culture model for compound screening, followed by phenotypic profiling to determine compound efficacy...
