Nocardiosis is a rare disease associated with significant morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients. We report on a 32-year-old pregnant woman with nocardiosis, which may be the third reported case in which no risk factor for the infection (other than the pregnancy itself) could be found. Pregnancy was complicated by the formation of a tubo-ovarian nocardia abscess, resulting in abortion. Lapartomy with trimethopprim-sulfamethoxazole led to complete cure of the patient at the end of the fifth month...

We present the case of a patient admitted to our emergency ward with a clinical setting of acute abdominal pain and a history of cavernous lymphangioma, diagnosed in another center by exploratory lapartomy. The patient presented complete analysis including serology tests, as well as an abdominal CT scan that revealed multiple large size retroperitoneal cysts. In view of the clinical symptomatology and results of the tests, a second CT scan was carried out upon admission. As a result of the findings obtained, a second exploratory laparotomy was carried out in which intestinal resection of the perforated jejunal loop and largest cysts was performed...

BACKGROUND: As ectopic pregnancy is associated with significant maternal mortality and morbidity it may be worthwhile to find alternative surgical method to traditional laparotomy. AIMS: To compare the efficacy, safety and cost effectiveness of minilaparotomy surgery for ectopic pregnancy cases with standard laparotomy method. SETTING AND DESIGN: A total of 60 patients of ectopic pregnancy were randomized for minilaparotomy and laparotomy (30 cases each) for three years from January...

A ten-year-old Holstein cow developed anorexia, fever, and recumbency 2 weeks before calving. She was hypocalcemic with concurrent mild pneumonia and mastitis. Due to evidence of impending abortion, parturition was induced and the cow developed metritis. Despite post partum improvement of pneumonia, mastitis and metritis, the cow remained anorexic and had signs of abdominal pain. An exploratory lapartomy via the left flank revealed a greatly enlarged right kidney. On examination through the right flank, 2 large simple renal cysts were found and a nephrectomy was performed...

Twenty-two hydatid cysts have been accurately located in the abdomens of seven patients by ultrasound B-scanning. Lapartomy has confirmed the presence of 19 of these cysts. Grey-scale techniques do not appear to add appreciably to the ease of diagnosis in this condition. Ultrasound can give the clinician a good idea of the extent of the disease process and has the advantage of being completely non-invasive.

This paper concerns blunt injuries of the abdomen in Gorenjsko (a Region of SR Slovenija northern of Ljubljana) treated during the past 3 years. Of the total 131 hospitalized patients, 51 (or 43.5%) were operated on. In 5 (8,8%) an explorative lapartomy was performed in which no pathological substrate was found. The most frequent lesions were found in the spleen, liver and small intestine. The paper stresses the importance of an early and correct diagnosis of such injuries. In making the exact diagnosis aside from the physical evaluation, the most important procedure is lavagage of the abdomen which the authors used in all cases suspect for acute abdomen and obtained excellent results...
