We report a case of 21-year-old young woman with congenital cloacal malformation. She was operated at the age of 1.5 years separating the rectum from common opening as a two-stage repair. She was incontinent in the earlier part of her life but she became continent to some extent later in early adulthood. She presented with urinary stress incontinence following delivery of dead fetus of 6 months. She underwent multiple investigations revealing common opening of bladder neck and vagina. A multidisciplinary evaluation was done and she underwent closure of common channel and neourethra reconstruction using pedicled appendix...

Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) are rare and abstruse neoplasms with increasing incidence and clinical relevance. The National Cancer Data Base was examined to identify GEP-NET cases from 2004 to 2013. In total, 39,454 patients diagnosed with GEP-NET were identified. Median age was 61 years. Majority was female (50.13%), white (79.49%), and had low-grade neoplasms (84.39%). On univariate analysis, age, sex, race, primary site, tumor size, and regional lymph node involvement were associated with tumor grade (P < 0...

INTRODUCTION: The creation of a Malone antegrade continence enema (MACE) channel is an option to treat patients with neurologic conditions that result in fecal soiling or intractable constipation. It is typically performed in an open fashion through a midline incision or laparoscopically. The laparoscopic technique typically involves bringing the tip of the appendix to the skin whereas the open technique allows for imbrication of the cecum around the channel, which may improve continence and decrease the risk of perforation...

INTRODUCTION: Appendicular diverticula and associated diverticulitis is a rare disease. Patients present commonly with symptoms of acute appendicitis and require laparoscopic or open surgery. Diagnosis is usually made only on histology. Here, we present a rare case of acute diverticulitis of the appendix. CASE PRESENTATION: A 33-year old gentleman presented with right iliac fossa pain of 3 days duration. On admission, appendicitis was diagnosed on Computerized Tomography (CT) scan and laparoscopic appendicectomy was subsequently performed...

Universities across Canada actively supported the call to arms in 1914, and Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, was no different. Though a myriad of units composed of Queen's faculty and students were created, the university perceived the military hospital raised by the school's medical faculty to be among its most vital contributions to the First World War. This commentary describes the engagement of the No. 7 General Hospital with the Minister of Militia, Sam Hughes, which has become an almost unknown footnote to its illustrious story...

Secondary tumors of the ovary account for 10-25% of all ovarian malignancies. The most common tumors that give rise to ovarian metastases include breast, colorectal, endometrial, stomach, and appendix cancer. The correct diagnosis of secondary ovarian tumors may be challenging as they are not infrequently misdiagnosed as primary ovarian cancer, particularly in the case of mucinous adenocarcinomas. The distinction from the latter is essential, as it requires different treatment. Immunohistochemistry plays an important role in distinguishing primary ovarian tumors from extra-ovarian metastases and, furthermore, may suggest the primary tumor site...

Autoamputation of the appendix has previously been reported in the literature, but it is likely an unusual event. We report a 2-year-old male child who had previously undergone laparotomy and bowel resection for necrotizing enterocolitis. Two years later a calcified intra-abdominal mass was identified on abdominal radiography and ultrasonography. Eventual laparotomy revealed a densely calcified mass within the transverse mesocolon. The mass was uneventfully resected. Pathologic evaluation showed appendiceal tissue, consistent with prior autoamputation of the vermiform appendix...

PURPOSES: To assess the ability of a single isotropic 3D T2 FSE sequence to identify the normal appendix in children with potential implication as alternative second-line modality in pediatric appendicitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective review of MR abdomino-pelvis or pelvis in children from Oct 2014-Dec 2016 was done. Only exams with 3D T2 FSE sequence performed on a single scanner type were selected. Patients with history of post appendectomy, studies in which field of view did not include ileocecal valve, with technical and protocol errors, or with fat-saturated acquisition were excluded...

REVIEW
Sanjay Prakash, Payal Patel
Hemicrania continua (HC) is an indomethacin-responsive primary headache disorder which is currently classified under the heading of trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias (TACs). It is a highly misdiagnosed and underreported primary headache. The pooled mean delay of diagnosis of HC is 8.0 ± 7.2 years. It is not rare. We noted more than 1000 cases in the literature. It represents 1.7% of total headache patients attending headache or neurology clinic. Just like other TACs, it is characterized by strictly unilateral pain in the trigeminal distribution, cranial autonomic features in the same area and agitation during exacerbations/attacks...

JUSTIFICATION AND OBJECTIVES: Patients affected by gynecological or gastrointestinal tract neoplasms that evolve to peritoneal carcinomatosis experience a significant drop in their quality of life, high morbidity and short survival times with currently available chemotherapeutic schemes. The surgical treatment based on cytoreduction and the employment of hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy in the intra-operative period is a true challenge to anesthesiologist. CASE REPORT: A 67 years old patient diagnosed with mucinous adenocarcinoma of the Appendix associated with mucinous carcinomatosis, was submitted to cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), under general anesthesia and epidural block...

Acute appendicitis is a clinical diagnosis typically presenting with right lower quadrant pain. We describe the case of an asymptomatic 53-year-old man with stage 2A diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, who underwent F-FDG PET/CT at the completion of chemotherapy. The scan showed complete lymphomatous disease remission. Incidentally, there was increased FDG uptake in a tubular structure adjacent to the cecum. Clinical examination was negative. Subsequently, the patient presented 6 days later with typical acute appendicitis symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Delayed or wrong diagnosis of acute appendicitis in patients results in complications like perforation, gangrene, etc. which carries a significant amount of morbidity and mortality to the patients. Thus, timely diagnosis of acute appendicitis is crucial to prevent these complications. Recently, it was found that serum C-reactive protein (CRP) individually can be a useful marker, thus in resource limited settings (i.e., access to ultrasonography) simple laboratory investigation can be of extreme utility for the diagnosis of acute appendicitis...

Femoral hernias can be difficult to diagnose and are at high risk of strangulation. This report is of a rare case of an irreducible femoral hernia containing caecum and appendix presenting as an emergency. To the authors' knowledge, there have only been three cases reported, the first described by Duari. This case was incorrectly diagnosed preoperatively as an inguinal hernia, so the CT diagnosis of femoral hernias is reviewed, in particular demonstrating the radiological use of the femoral vein compression sign...
