Lymphangioma is a rare, benign mesenchymal neoplasm, which is characterized by numerous intercommunicating cystic spaces containing lymphatic fluid. It is considered a congenital disease resulting from the obstruction of regional lymph drainage during the developmental period. Lymphangioma frequently occurs in the cervical neck and axilla, also in the retroperitoneum, mediastinum, mesentery, omentum, colon, and pelvis, rarely in the perirenal space. These tumors usually present in childhood, but infrequently, these also present in adults...

Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is a commonly used and generally well-tolerated medication. Common side effects include flu-like symptoms such as fevers, headaches, myalgia, fatigue, and nausea. One of the more rare side effects is aseptic meningitis, with a reported incidence rate of around 0.067 percent of all IVIG infusions. In this paper, we describe a 47-year-old female patient with a history of myasthenia gravis who presented with a headache, neck pain, and neck stiffness while undergoing IVIG infusions for a myasthenia crisis...

Atypical Hangman fractures (AHF) were first formally reported and considered to be more often associated with neurologic deficit in 1993. However, there is a paucity of literature focusing on these fractures. The purpose of the retrospective study was to introduce a new classification scheme for AHF and its application.Sixty-two patients with Hangman fractures were identified. There were 46 (74.2%, 46/62) AHF patients, including 29 type I, 9 type II, 5 type IIa, and 3 type III fractures (Levine-Edwards classification)...

PURPOSE: Previous studies have demonstrated that total cervical disc replacement (cTDR) represents a viable treatment alternative to the 'gold standard' anterior cervical discectomy and fusion for the treatment of well-defined cervical pathologies at short- and mid-term follow-up (FU). However, the implementation and acceptance of a non-fusion philosophy is closely associated with its avoidance of adjacent segment degeneration. Proof of the functional sustainability and clinical improvement of symptoms at long-term FU is still pending...

BACKGROUND: Neuralgic amyotrophy is characterised by pain in the neck or shoulder region, followed by neuropathy of both motor and sensory nerves of the brachial plexus. The incidence of this condition is estimated at 1/1000 per year. In a rare variant of the syndrome, involvement of both phrenic nerves can occur, leading to diaphragmatic paralysis and severe orthopnoea. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 67-year-old woman was referred to us with acute orthopnoea. Imaging studies showed bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis, and electromyography (EMG) confirmed neuropathy of both phrenic nerves...

BACKGROUND: In multilevel degenerative conditions posterior approaches are often preferred, but anterior approaches provide comparable clinical results and better alignment. Anterior plating entails higher rates of soft tissue injuries and dysphagia, particularly in multilevel cases. This study evaluates efficacy and safety of zero-profile devices in three and four-level ACDF, analyzing patients' clinical and radiological long-term outcome. METHODS: We prospectively enrolled 24 patients with cervical spondylotic myeloradiculopathy (CSM), who underwent three and four-level ACDF with Zero-P device...

Primary osteoporosis (POP) has a serious impact on quality of life for middle-aged and elderly, which particularly increase the risk of fracture. We conducted the systematic review to evaluate the effects of moxibustion for POP in randomized controlled trials (RCTs).Eight databases were searched from their inception to July 30, 2016. The RCTs reporting the moxibustion as a monotherapy or in combination with conventional therapy for POP were enrolled. The outcomes might be fracture incidence, quality of life, clinical symptoms, death attributed to osteoporosis, adverse effect, bone mineral density (BMD), and biochemical indicators...

OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to examine the prevalence, clinical significance, ramifications, and possible etiology of postoperative bone formation at the index level after Cervical Disc Replacement (CDR) with a minimum of five years of follow-up. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: CDR can be complicated by postoperative ossification and unwanted ankylosis at the index level, which some authors have termed "heterotopic ossification". This terminology may be inaccurate as it assumes the postoperative bone formation is unnatural and a consequence of the CDR surgery...
