We report a case of thoracic sarcoidosis in a 72-year-old female, snuff taker, who presented with multinodular pulmonary lesions on chest x-ray. Clinical and biological findings were poor. Thoracic imaging showed soft tissue density nodules with irregular borders. The diagnosis of 'cannon ball' metastases was suspected. A thorough investigation strategy could not prove malignancy. A complete radiologic clearing was obtained spontaneously within three months. A rereading of pathology slides performed afterwards showed multinucleated giant cells on hemorrhagic background with a lymphocytic alveolitis...

Severe visual loss may occur in patients with pseudotumor cerebri (PTC), also known as idiopathic intracranial hypertension. Transverse sinus stenosis is 1 cause of PTC syndrome. Although the role of transverse sinus stenosis in the pathogenesis of the disease remains controversial, recent case series of transverse sinus stenting have reported very high rates of symptom response and resolution of papilledema with improvement or at least stabilization of the visual fields and visual acuity (Ahmed et al., 2011)...

Sinus pericranii (SP) is an uncommon vascular pathology that is characterized by a nodular structure emerging from the scalp. It is generally asymptomatic. Typically, it is aclose to soft, compressive, fluctuant swelling, intracranial sinus. The swelling increases during the Valsalva maneuver, jugular vein compression, coughing, or crying attacks. The diagnosis was confirmed by CT, MRI, and MR angiography. Here, we conclude that SP is a rare cause of headache and that the asymptomatic lesion become symptomatic as a result of association with pseudotumor cerebri...

OBJECTIVE: IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is an idiopathic inflammatory condition that causes pseudotumor formation in single or multiple organs, including those of the head and neck. Temporal bone involvement is rare, with only 3 cases of unilateral temporal bone IgG4-RD described in the literature. We report the first known case of IgG4-RD of bilateral temporal bones and describe its clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment. METHODS: The patient was a 52-year-old man with latent tuberculosis (TB) who presented with a 10-year history of bilateral profound hearing loss and vestibular dysfunction...

Some brain tumors results are interesting due to their rarity at presentation and overwhelming imaging characteristics, posing a diagnostic challenge in the eyes of any experienced neuroradiologist. This article focuses on the most important features regarding epidemiology, location, clinical presentation, histopathology, and imaging findings of cases considered "bizarre." A review of the most recent literature dealing with these unusual tumors and pseudotumors is presented, highlighting key points related to the diagnosis, treatments, outcomes, and differential diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Metal-on-Metal (MoM) total hip arthroplasties (THA) are associated with pseudotumor formation and high revision rates. This prospective study analysed the clinical and wear analyses of 9 large Metal-on-Metal (MoM) total hip arthroplasties (THA) to understand the underlying mechanisms of failure. The MoM bearings were revised for multiple reasons; the main reason was pseudotumor formation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From 2006 till 2010 the Reinier de Graaf Hospital implanted 160 large head M2a-Magnum™ (Biomet Inc...

INTRODUCTION: Meckel's diverticulum is a common malformation in children, usually asymptomatic, with complications in only 20% of cases. Exceptionally, a tumor can develop in Meckel's diverticulum in children, particularly Burkitt's lymphoma; in adults it can develop into a gastrointestinal stromal tumor, a leiomyosarcoma, or a neuroendocrine tumor such as a carcinoid tumor. The diagnosis of inflammatory pseudotumor following an insidious perforation is rare. OBSERVATION: We report the case of a 14-month-old boy who presented with fever, asthenia, food refusal, and digestive complaints such as vomiting and tender abdomen suggesting appendicitis...

Amebiasis is uncommon in developed countries. Several case reports in the literature emphasize that both the presenting symptoms and the radiological findings of colonic amebiasis closely resemble more common conditions, such as idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease and gastro-intestinal malignancy. We describe a unique case of colonic amebiasis (amebomas) coexisting with signet-ring cell carcinoma of the ileocecal valve, the cecum and the appendix. Endoscopically, the ulcerated tumor was indistinguishable from the ulcerations and pseudotumors (amebomas) detected in the ascending colon...

BACKGROUND: Beside hepatocellular carcinoma, metastasis, and cholangiocarcinoma, the imaging findings of other relatively uncommon hepatic lesions are less discussed in the literature. Imaging diagnosis of these lesions is a daily challenge. In this article, we review the imaging characteristics of these neoplasms. METHODS: From January 2003 to December 2014, 4746 patients underwent liver biopsy or hepatic surgical resection in our hospital. We reviewed the pathological database retrospectively...

AIM: To share our experience with idiopathic intracranial hypertension. MATERIAL AND METHODS: All patients believed to have pseudotumor cerebri underwent a fundus oculi examination to confirm the existence of papillary stasis and lumbar puncture (LP) to measure cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure. Patients who did not respond to medical treatment underwent fundus oculi examinations at 3-week intervals. Patients with CFS pressures exceeding 240 mm H2O underwent at least three LPs at 3-day intervals...

Granulomatosis with polyangitis (Wegener's disease) is a rare ANCA (anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody) positive vasculitis that seldom involves brain and meninges. We herein present a case of a 35-year-old woman presenting with granulomatosis with polyangitis involving the brain and the meninges. The histological diagnosis required a complete resection of the lesion. Despite the possibility of post operative wound infection surgery was mandatory to ascertain the diagnostic and to treat locally.

Inflammatory pseudotumor (IP) is an uncommon idiopathic lesion that often imitates malignancy clinically and radiologically. Inflammatory pseudotumors have been found to occur in various sites but rarely in the head and neck. The histopathology, imaging, and treatment of three unique cases of head and neck inflammatory pseudotumors are described in this case series. Patients in Cases 1 and 2 presented with right level II neck mass and left parotid tail mass, respectively. The patient in Case 3 presented with otalgia, jaw pain and trismus, and a left parapharyngeal space mass...

Tuberculosis can involve any part of the body. Urogenital tuberculosis is a fairly common extra-pulmonary manifestation of tuberculosis and renal tuberculosis is the most common form of urogenital tuberculosis. Renal tuberculosis seldom presents as a mass, usually due to hydronephrosis of the involved kidney. However in extremely rare cases it may present as an inflammatory pseudotumor which may mimic renal cell carcinoma. We present a case of a 65- year- old male who was provisionally diagnosed as renal cell carcinoma based on clinical and radiological findings and managed accordingly but was finally diagnosed as renal tuberculosis based on histopathological examination of surgical specimen...

INTRODUCTION: Hemophilic pseudotumor is a rare but well documented complication seen in approximately 1-2% of patients with hemophilia. The incidence continues to decrease, likely because of increasingly sophisticated techniques in managing factor deficiency. We present a case of hemophilic pseudotumor in a patient without hemophilia, an exceptionally rare entity, and outline a hybrid approach to treatment. PRESENTATION OF CASE: The patient presented with a left sided iliopsoas mass and associated radiculopathy, with a history of a poorly characterized bleeding diathesis and Noonan's syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Most metal-on-metal hip resurfacing (MoMHR) designs have experienced high short-term failure rates because of pseudotumors. The impact of this complication into the second decade after the procedure is unknown. We investigated (1) the prevalence of, and risk factors for, all-cause and pseudotumor-related revision at up to 15 years following MoMHR and (2) whether risk factors were sex-specific. METHODS: This single-center prospective cohort study included 1,429 MoMHRs (1216 patients; 40% female) implanted between 1999 and 2009...
