Intussusception of the appendix is a rare condition with an incidence of approximately 0.01%. In adults, the lead point for the intussusception is most frequently endometriosis, whereas in children, acute inflammation of the appendix is usually the cause (76%). This case report presents a 41-year-old woman who was referred to hospital care primarily due to blood in her stool and a 1 × 3 cm polypous tumour in her caecum, observed during colonoscopy. She had no gynaecologic history and a normal exam. A right-sided hemicolectomy was performed and pathology showed endometriosis and acute and chronic inflammation...

By describing 3 clinical cases of unusual testicular non germinal tumors, including an adenoma of the rete testis, an undifferenciated sex cord tumor and a mesothelioma of the tunica vaginalis, we make a literature review of the unusual testicular tumors and testicular apendix, including their incidence and management. Also and as one of our conclusions, we expose the importance of the intraoperatory biopsy in the testicular cancer surgery, because even if it is infrecuent, the presence of this rare testicular tumors, in which if they are proven to be benign, the testicular unit could be preserved and the radical orquiectomy could be avoided...

Acute appendicitis is usually encountered clinically as acute abdomen. Typical cases are easy to diagnose, but it can sometimes be very difficult to make a diagnosis in atypical cases. We retrospectively studied patients who underwent ultrasonography for right-sided lower abdominal pain suggesting acute appendicitis, and assessed the accuracy of ultrasonic diagnosis. The subjects were 202 patients (100 males and 102 females) aged 6-89 years (mean: 33.3 years). From the ultrasonic findings, appendicitis was classified as follows: 1) catarrhal: a clear layer structure of the appendiceal wall and mucosal edema; 2) phlegmonous: an ill-defined layer structure of the appendiceal wall, moderate enlargement of the apendix, and maximum transverse dimension of > or = 10 mm; and 3) gangrenous: unidentifiable layer structure of the appendiceal wall and marked enlargement to form a mass...

A controlled prospective trial was carried out on 100 cases of appendicectomy for a suppurative or perforated apendix, 153 operations on the biliary tract and 25 abdominal colon and rectum resections. The topical administration of Polybactrin aerosol, sprayed once into the open laparotomy wound produced a significant reduction in postoperative wound infection.
