We report on a series of three children who presented with a focal cerebrospinal fluid collection within the periventricular white matter of the temporal and occipital lobes in the setting of high-grade obstructive hydrocephalus. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a focal defect within the ventricular wall associated with leakage of cerebrospinal fluid into the adjacent white matter. The white matter tracts appeared primarily displaced. This entity should be referred to as ventricular pseudodiverticulum, not lined by ependymal cells, in contrast to a true ventricular diverticulum in which the cerebrospinal fluid is contained by a focal outpouching of the intact ventricular wall lined by a dilated and prolapsed layer of ependymal cells...

Incidental gastrointestinal findings are commonly detected on MDCT exams performed for various medical indications. This review describes the radiological MDCT spectrum of appearances already present in the past literature and in today's experience of several gastrointestinal acute conditions such as abdominal hernia, giant colon diverticulum, GIST, intestinal pneumatosis, colon ischemia, cold intussusception, gallstone ileus, and foreign bodies which can require medical and surgical intervention or clinical follow-up...

We present the case of an 83-year-old woman with a past medical history significant for schizoaffective disorder, presenting to our emergency department with the complaint of 'pain'. Given the non-specific complaint and the limited history obtained, CT imaging was performed on her chest and abdomen which incidentally found a large duodenal diverticulum. This manuscript discusses the incidence of duodenal diverticula and the potential associated complications.

A 48-year-old woman with a history of voiding difficulty visited our hospital. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a periurethral tumor, which was pathologically diagnosed as an adenocarcinoma via transperineal needle biopsy. Radical cystectomy and urethrectomy were performed, and the urinary tract was reconstructed using an ileal conduit. Pathological examination of a resected specimen confirmed adenocarcinoma of the urethral diverticulum. The patient received adjuvant gemcitabine and cisplatin chemotherapy...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to provide a morphometric description of the left-sided septal pouch (LSSP), left atrial accessory appendages, and diverticula using cardiac multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT) and to compare results between patient subgroups. METHODS: Two hundred and ninety four patients (42.9% females) with a mean of 69.4±13.1years of age were investigated using MSCT. The presence of the LSSP, left atrial accessory appendages, and diverticula was evaluated...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate roles of intraoperative endoscopy (IOE) in management of severe obscure GI bleeding (OGIB) before vs. after introduction of video capsule endoscopy (VCE) and deep enteroscopy (DE). METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed prospectively collected data of patients undergoing IOE for severe OGIB in a tertiary referral center. RESULTS: 52 patients had laparotomy/IOE for OGIB, 11 pre and 41 post VCE/DE eras. In the pre VCE/DE era, 36...

OBJECTIVE: Increasing surgeon volume may improve outcomes for index operations. We hypothesized that there may be surrogate operative experiences that yield similar outcomes for surgeons with a low-volume experience with a specific index operation, such as esophagectomy. BACKGROUND: The relationship between surgeon volume and outcomes has potential implications for credentialing of surgeons. Restrictions of privileges based on surgeon volume are only reasonable if there is no substitute for direct experience with the index operation...

The right-side aortic arch may be associated with aberrant left subclavian artery, in some cases this artery originates from an aneurismal dilatation of the aorta called Kommerell diverticulum. We report 2 cases of vascular ring formed by a right-side aortic arch, anomalous left subclavian artery, Kommerell's diverticulum and left patent ductus arteriosus.

BACKGROUND: Pharyngoesophageal diverticula have many subtypes, with Zenker's diverticulum being the most common. First described in 1983, a Killian-Jamieson diverticulum is an outpouching in the anterolateral wall at the pharyngoesophageal junction. This is located inferiorly to the cricopharyngeus muscle, unlike Zenker's diverticula which occur superiorly. Killian-Jamieson diverticula are rare and are commonly misdiagnosed as Zenker's diverticula. Less than 30 reports of Killian-Jamieson diverticula have been described in the literature...

We report a rare case of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in bladder diverticulum producing granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF). A 59-year-old man complaining of hematuria and right hip pain was admitted with a large cancer in the bladder diverticulum. His laboratory data showed leukocytosis of 20,100/ μ l (neutrophils : 92%) with an elevated G-CSF of 76. 6 pg/ml in the peripheral blood. After neoadjuvant chemotherapy (gemcitabine and cisplatin), radical cystectomy was performed to normalize serum leukocytosis and G-CSF...

Congenital ventricular aneurysm is a rare cardiac malformation characterized by protrusion or out-pouching of a portion of the ventricular wall. The aneurysm usually has a broad based communication with the ventricular cavity and has to be differentiated from a diverticulum. Herein described are two such cases of left and right ventricular aneurysm each, diagnosed on prenatal ultrasound at 38 and 36 weeks of gestation respectively.

Species of Belostoma in the dentatum and subspinosum groups are large and closely related, and have been combined by some authors into a single group, the dentatum group, comprising 15 species. This group is recognized by the scutellum reaching the nodal line and the ventral diverticulum of the phallus with distinct dorsal caudal and ventroapical protuberances. Previously, each group included five and 10 species, respectively; members of the dentatum group ranged in length from 38.0 to 52.0 mm, whereas those of the subspinosum group ranged from 26...

Diverticular bleeding of the small bowel is rare and occurs primarily in adults aged more than 60 years. In younger adults, Meckel's diverticulum, a true diverticulum that congenitally occurs in the distal ileum, is the most common cause of diverticular bleeding of the small bowel. Unlike Meckel's diverticula, other kinds of small bowel diverticula are not congenital and their incidence is related to age. Furthermore, congenital true diverticular bleeding of the jejunum in adults is very rare. We report the case of a 24-year-old man with subepithelial tumor-like lesion accompanied with obscure overt gastrointestinal bleeding (OOGIB)...

BACKGROUND: Mid-esophageal region is an uncommon location of esophageal diverticula, a condition usually diagnosed in elderly individuals. CASE REPORT: We report a case of an elderly male with incidental finding of mediastinal lesion, which was initially thought to be an aortic aneurysm. Further evaluation demonstrated a mid-esophageal diverticulum at the level of the carina. We present patient's medical history and imaging, followed by a discussion on symptoms and management...

BACKGROUND Simpson-Golabi-Behmel syndrome (SGBS) is a rare X-linked recessive syndrome characterized by fetal overgrowth. CASE REPORT We present a case of a male infant with SGBS. Abnormal prenatal ultrasound (including congenital diaphragmatic hernia) prompted microarray testing of amniotic fluid cells, which showed deletion on chromosome Xq26.2 affecting the glypican-3 gene consistent with SGBS type I. The infant died six hours after birth and at autopsy showed features of SGBS, including macrosomia, organomegaly, diaphragmatic hernia with consequent pulmonary hypoplasia, cleft palate, large tongue with a midline groove, a supernumerary nipple, Meckel's diverticulum, and abnormal phalanges...

A 76-year-old man with positive fecal occult blood tests underwent colonoscopy, which revealed a laterally spreading tumor completely surrounding a diverticulum in the ascending colon. He was referred to our hospital for further examination and treatment. A second colonoscopy revealed that the laterally spreading tumor involved an entire diverticulum in the posterior wall of the ascending colon. This article is protected by copyright.

A Meckel's diverticulum is a remnant of the vitelline duct, which leads to the formation of a true diverticulum containing all layers of the small intestine. The diverticulum can contain ectopic gastric, duodenal or pancreatic tissue and is the most common congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract with estimates of prevalence ranging from 0.3% to 3%. The condition is usually clinically silent. In children the most common complication is gastrointestinal bleeding caused by ulceration due to the acid secretion by ectopic gastric mucosa...
