We present the case of a patient with a pulmonary hydatid cyst. The patient underwent laparotomy for hepatic and splenic cysts, and we performed cystotomy and capitonnage using a transdiaphragmatic intervention. The pulmonary hydatid cyst was located at the base of the lung and near the diaphragm. The diaphragm was cut about 5 cm at the front and the thorax was entered.The pulmonary cyst was treated intra-abdominally. This technique is effective and safe and prevents the patient from undergoing a second operation...

A female patient, 20 years old, with a history of a progressive increase in abdominal volume on the left side, starting 3 years ago, with no associated symptoms and no history of trauma. Ultrasonography and a computed tomography scan of the abdomen were performed, which revealed a large splenomegaly, and a partial minilaparoscopic splenectomy was indicated. We opted for unroofing of the cyst, and the procedure was uneventful, with a total surgical time of 47 min. The patient progressed clinically well, without abdominal pain, being discharged on the 2nd post-operative day...

Splenic complications of invasive meningococcal disease (IMD) are well recognised, though cyst formation is rare, particularly in paediatric populations. The best approach to their management is not yet established. This case outlines the management of a splenic cyst in a 21-month-old boy following severe IMD. The case took place in the context of an acute emergence of serogroup W prompting significant media attention and subsequent change in vaccination practice at a jurisdictional level in Australia. The patient was critically unwell early in the illness, then later a collection in the left upper quadrant was detected, shown on ultrasound to be a 11...

An epithelial cyst in an intrapancreatic accessory spleen (ECIAS) is rare. We herein report a case of a patient with ECIAS who underwent laparoscopic surgery. A 57-year-old woman was referred to our hospital because of a pancreatic tail tumor. She was asymptomatic, and a physical examination revealed no remarkable abnormalities. The levels of the tumor marker carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA19-9) and s-pancreas-1 antigen (SPan-1) were elevated. Ultrasonography showed a well-defined homogeneous cystic tumor. Computed tomography showed a well-demarcated cystic tumor in the pancreatic tail...

A 34-year-old woman visited our hospital for treatment of a huge splenic cyst with epigastric pain. She had been diagnosed with Gaucher's disease (Type 1) at 3 years of age and had been receiving enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) from 15 years of age. Abdominal MRI showed a low-intensity area, 30 cm in diameter, with a well-defined border on T1-weighted images. The patient underwent laparoscopic fenestration of the huge splenic cyst for relief of worsening epigastric pain caused by the cyst. The cyst contained 2,500 ml of brownish-red fluid...

Splenic cysts are a rare entity in the Western population and are either true cysts (primary, 25%) or pseudocysts (secondary, 75%) complicating trauma, haemorrhage or infarction. Congenital or simple splenic cysts are the commonest primary cysts and surgery is recommended for cysts larger than 5 cm as these are prone to infection, bleeding or rupture and for symptomatic or complicated cysts. Splenic preservation techniques using the laparoscopic approach are the most prevalent. We present a case of a giant painful simple splenic cyst treated with laparoscopic de-capsulation with application of a new technique for achieving vascular control, whereby control of the splenic pedicle was achieved using a Nylon tape...

Hydatid disease is caused by Echinococcus granulosus. Hydatid cysts are commonly located in the liver and lungs. The occurrence of pancreatic hydatid cysts is very rare, even in endemic areas. Sinistral portal hypertension, which is rarely seen, occurs when a pathological process causes splenic vein occlusion. A 26-year-old male patient presented with abdominal pain. He had a history of operation for hydatid cyst of the lung 15 years ago. A left thoracotomy incision scar was observed during his physical examination...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to clarify whether there are differences in imaging findings between pancreatic epidermoid cyst (EDC) without a solid component (residual splenic tissue) and mucinous cystic neoplasm (MCN). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study group consisted of histologically proven EDC (eight cases) and MCN (20 cases). CT and MRI findings were compared on the following imaging findings: the shape of the cystic lesions and the presence or absence of septum, calcification, and high-intensity fluid on T1- and diffusion-weighted images (b factor = 1000)...

INTRODUCTION: Splenic cysts are benign tumors, accidentally detected using US or CT scan. They are classified into true cyst (primary, 25%) and pseudocyst (secondary, 75%). Conventional treatment of splenic cyst, especially giant, symptomatic and complicated has been open or laparoscopic total splenectomy. Recently, partial splenectomy is recommended as well to preserve its hematopoietic function and homeostasis of blood, but it is not considered safe for complications as intra and post operative bleeding...

BACKGROUND: Dialyzable leukocyte extracts (DLEs) contain molecules smaller than 10 kDa with biological activity in receptor organisms. Primarily, they participate in the regulation of the Th1 immune response, which is essential for the control of several intracellular infections, such as toxoplasmosis. This disease is associated with congenital infection, encephalitis or systemic infections in immunocompromised individuals. The clinical course of this infection fundamentally depends on a well-regulated immune response and timely treatment with the appropriate drugs...
