Paz García, Juan Ignacio Errázuriz, Carlos Fernández, Eugenio Arteaga
Benign intraperitoneal metastatic leiomyomatosis is a rare benign disease that is observed when a leiomyoma is present in the peritoneal surface. Women who have undergone hysterectomy for leiomyomas are most commonly affected. Patients are usually asymptomatic at presentation, being frequently an incidental finding in imaging studies. Ultrasound and CT play an important role in the diagnosis. The lesions are histologically identical to their uterine counterparts. There are different theories about the pathogenesis of the disease, including peritoneal seeding after laparoscopic hysterectomy...

A 69-year-old man with locally advanced squamous cell lung cancer in the left hilum underwent left upper sleeve lobectomy following neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy with an S-1/cisplatin regimen. On postoperative day (POD) 5, the chest X-ray findings deteriorated, and computed tomography (CT) images showed pulmonary congestion of the left residual lung. We then performed emergent left completion pneumonectomy. Although the Postoperative course after re-operation was uneventful, and the patient was scheduled to be discharged on POD 12 when the serum creatinine level and plasma D-dimer level increased to 1...

Primary pleural myxoid liposarcoma is a rare tumor. Here, we report a primary myxoid liposarcoma occupying the majority of the left thoracic cavity with features suggesting invasion. Computed tomography (CT) at medical check-up incidentally revealed a bulky inhomogeneous fatty mass. The tumor's large size made a prediction of its resectability by preoperative CT difficult. The patient underwent an operation, which revealed that the tumor was attached to the pleura with a thin pedicle; the tumor was resected completely...

Targeted next-generation-sequencing (NGS) panels have largely replaced Sanger sequencing in clinical diagnostics. They allow for the detection of copy number variations (CNVs) in addition to single-nucleotide-variants and small insertions/deletions. However, existing computational CNV detection methods have shortcomings regarding accuracy, quality control, incidental findings, and user-friendliness. We developed panelcn.MOPS, a novel pipeline for detecting CNVs in targeted NGS panel data. Using data from 180 samples, we compared panelcn...

It has been suggested that people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have an increased tendency to use explicit (or intentional) learning strategies. This altered learning may play a role in the development of the social communication difficulties characterizing ASD. In the current study, we investigated incidental and intentional sequence learning using a Serial Reaction Time (SRT) task in an adult ASD population. Response times and event related potentials (ERP) components (N2b and P3) were assessed as indicators of learning and knowledge...

In a 12-year-old male Labrador Retriever, presented due to other disease symptoms, clinical signs of hyperadrenocorticism (polyuria, polydipsia, abdominal distention, muscle atrophy) were an incidental finding. Abnormal laboratory results and sonographic findings of the adrenal glands, but negative low-dose dexamethasone suppression tests with low basal cortisol concentrations, a negative andrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH)-stimulation test and exclusion of iatrogenic hyperadrenocorticism, suggested an atypical hyperadrenocorticism (AHAC)...

Multisensory information has been shown to modulate attention in infants and facilitate learning in adults, by enhancing the amodal properties of a stimulus. However, it remains unclear whether this translates to learning in a multisensory environment across middle childhood, and particularly in the case of incidental learning. One hundred and eighty-one children aged between 6 and 10 years participated in this study using a novel Multisensory Attention Learning Task (MALT). Participants were asked to respond to the presence of a target stimulus whilst ignoring distractors...

Breast metastases of solid extramammary tumors are very rare in comparison to primary malignancies of the breast and account for only 0.33-6.3% of all malignant neoplasms of the breast. The most common primary tumors are malignant melanoma, distant sarcomas, lung cancer, ovarian cancer, renal cell cancer and thyroid cancer in decreasing order of frequency. This review article summarizes the clinical features and the different imaging findings of breast metastases from different extramammary solid tumors. Breast metastases are often incidental findings in computed tomography (CT) or positron emission tomography CT (PET-CT) imaging...

REVIEW
H R Dürr, A Klein
Intraarticular benign tumors are rare lesions in many cases seen as incidental findings. One of the typical lesions is the diffuse or nodular form of pigmented villonodular synovitis, which needs a complete surgical removal. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is diagnostic in most of the cases because of the intracellular iron content which shows an at least in some parts dark T2-sequence. Adjuvant therapies as radiosynoviorthesis should be considered in diffuse or recurrent lesions. Synovial Chondromatosis represents a metaplastic disorder of the synovial membrane resulting in the production of loose cartilage bodies...

PURPOSE: To investigate the feasibility and accuracy of a split-bolus contrast injection CTA (SB-CTA) compared to a single-bolus injection CTA (SI-CTA) protocol of post-EVAR patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this IRB-approved study, patients who underwent SB-CTA and SI-CTA after EVAR were evaluated. Attenuation and contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) of vessels and parenchymal organs were assessed. Subjective enhancement of vessels, quality of 3D reconstructions, and enhancement phase of parenchymal organs were assessed by two independent readers...

Breast arterial calcification (BAC) is a type of medial artery calcification that can be seen incidentally on mammography. Studies have suggested association of BAC with cardiovascular risk factors, coronary artery disease (CAD), and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Recently published studies have also suggested a modest correlation of BAC with coronary artery calcium (CAC) scoring. Roughly 40 million mammograms are already performed annually in the United States with overlap in patients that undergo CAD screening via CAC scoring...

INTRODUCTION: Splenic tumors are rare and are either primary or secondary, benign or malignant. Most have none to minimal symptomatology and are found incidentally. Splenic cysts can be infectious, congenital, or traumatic. Epidermoid cysts and parasitic cysts are examples of primary cysts and usually have a classic presentation on imaging. Despite advanced imaging modalities and patient's clinical presentation, it can be difficult to diagnose an epidermoid cyst without histological examination...

BACKGROUND: Bronchial artery aneurysm (BAA) is a rare condition with a reported prevalence of less than 1% of all selective bronchial arterial angiograms. Despite its low incidence, BAA represents a potential cause of hemoptysis. CASE REPORT: We describe the case of a 63-year-old man suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), who presented with non-massive hemoptysis. CT angiography revealed a single bronchial artery aneurysm of 9 mm in diameter, abutting the esophageal wall...

An asymptomatic 18-year-old black woman was found to have an incidental finding of third-degree atrioventricular (AV) block on a routine ECG. 2-Dimensional transthoracic echocardiography showed a heterogeneous mass in the region of the peri-membranous septum in the AV node area. A cardiac MRI showed a well-defined cystic mass arising from the right side of the interatrial septal wall. An MRI compatible permanent pacemaker was implanted with plans to monitor the tumour with non-invasive imaging. Cystic tumour of the AV node is a rare primary cardiac tumour...

BACKGROUND: When hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) was located in segment 2 (S2), segment-oriented hepatectomy was more beneficial than left lateral sectionectomy as this type of anatomical resection preserved the volume of the nontumor-bearing segment. Herein, we presented 2 cases (1 with video) of laparoscopic anatomical S2 segmentectomy by the Glissonian approach. METHODS: The first patient was a 69-year-old woman, who had an incidentally detected liver nodule on abdominal ultrasound for systemic surveillance for her breast cancer...

OBJECTIVE: The present research tested whether incidental positive affect promotes pursuit of physical activity goals. Four key features of goal pursuit were examined - setting physical activity goals (Study 1), goal activation (Study 2), and goal prioritization and goal attainment (Study 3). DESIGN: Participants (Ns = 80, 81, and 59, in Studies 1-3, respectively) were randomized to positive affect (joy, hope) or neutral affect (control) conditions in each study...

We present a case of apparently uncomplicated lumbar decompression and discectomy with delayed postoperative neurological deterioration secondary to subdural hematoma at the thoracolumbar level of the spinal cord. Previously described subdural hematomas have occurred spontaneously or related to iatrogenic injury. Hitherto, no case of acute postoperative subdural hematoma has been reported in the postoperative setting in the absence of known iatrogenic dural injury. A 76-year-old male with central and lateral recess spinal stenosis underwent apparently uncomplicated bilateral L3-4 and left sided L4-5 decompressive partial laminectomies and discectomy...

As ultrasonography continues to become integrated into undergraduate medical education, there have been concerns raised about the use of volunteer models and the ability to maintain patient privacy during scanning sessions. To date, there have been no reports on how instructors should manage situations in which incidental findings are made during educational ultrasonography sessions. We present three different examples of incidental findings that occurred at our institution and the various approaches taken by the instructors...

INTRODUCTION: Splenogonadal fusion (SGF) is a rare congenital malformation in which the spleen is connected to the gonad. Few SGF cases have been reported in the English scientific literature, and we are unaware of any previous case reports of SGF with inguinal hernia by laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal hernia repair (TAPP). Here, we report a case of SGF that was incidentally detected during a TAPP procedure, with an uneventful postoperative course without complications. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 76-year-old male presented with a 10-year history of left inguinal swelling...

There have been anecdotal reports of vasculopathy associated with Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2). Given the increasing use of bevacizumab, a vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitor which results in an increased risk of bleeding, it is important to ascertain if there is a predisposition to vascular abnormalities in NF2. In our unit NF2 patients undergo annual MRI brain and internal auditory meatus imaging. We noted incidental intracranial aneurysms in some patients and sought to determine the prevalence of intracranial aneurysms in our cohort of NF2 patients...
