A case of an ectopic cervical thymic cyst  [PDF]
Simon Davey, Janet McNally
Case Reports in Clinical Medicine (CRCM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/crcm.2013.22041
Abstract:

Ectopic cervical thymic cysts are uncommon lesions and definitive preoperative diagnosis is not always possible. Surgical excision is recommended due to the small but possible chance of malignant degeneration in adulthood. We present a case of a nine year old boy with an asymptomatic lesion in his neck, discuss the differential diagnoses of such lesions and treatment considerations.

Abstract: Breast cysts (galactocele) form in the mammary gland from ductal obstruction. Multiple pathologic entities may produce complex cystic breast lesions. Ultrasound is presently the first primary modality in breast evaluation after physical palpitation. We report a progressive case of multiple cysts in a 32-year-old woman, ranging from 28 mm to 20 mm. Though in-situ milk (sono-penic) appears sterile, the superficial presentation (externally) is that of a firm mass. Due to the known hazards of radioactive mammography, this case report proves the usefulness of sonar to image, map, measure, identify and diagnose breast pathology. In women with dense-heavy breast, ultrasound examination will play an important role in screening palpable and non-palpable masses.

Abstract: a clinical case is reported of a female patient who assisted to the department of oral surgery at central university of venezuela with and about 5 month of evolution marked enlargement of the left maxilla . it was an expansion and thinning of the labial cotical bone. x- rays reveals a large radiolucent area containing the left maxillary permanent canine. at the same way we made a rewiew of the literature. clinical, radiological and histopathological aspects of the the lesion are studied in detail.
Presentation of a Rare Case of Bilateral Lumbar Synovial Cysts  [PDF]
Konstantinos Violaris, Maria Karakyriou
Open Journal of Modern Neurosurgery (OJMN) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojmn.2012.22006
Abstract: Purpose: To report a quite rare case of bilateral symptomatic synovial cysts of the lumbar spine. Surgical resection is usually the cure for this condition. Methods: A 65 year old female patient came to our department, complaining for severe lumbar and sciatic pain. MRI and CT were used to diagnose bilateral synovial cysts. Because of the intensity of symptoms, she was subjected to surgery. Laminectomy and cyst resection were performed. Results: The patient showed complete resolution of pain after the resection of the cysts. Conclusion: Although rare, bilateral synovial cysts may be the cause of severe lumbar pain. In cases of failure of conservative treatment, surgical resection offers good results.
Neuroendoscopy in Epilepsy Surgery  [PDF]
Oscar Humberto Jimenez-Vazquez, Norma Nagore
World Journal of Neuroscience (WJNS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/wjns.2016.62014
Abstract: Epilepsy surgery has constantly evolved in various fields of knowledge. Surgical criteria have shifted from standard procedures to individualized forms of treatment, depending on physiological tests and specific imagenology findings in an individual patient. New instruments and applications based upon older instruments have been described in the treatment of epilepsy surgery, including the use of endoscopes. Frequent indications of neuroendoscopy in epilepsy surgery have been mostly to assist in open procedures, particularly when fluid-filled spaces are present within the surgical field, such as cystic parasites, tumors, arachnoid, or other types of cysts. Other indications certainly include cases of temporal lobe epilepsy, where ventricular exploration precedes intraventricular electrode placing as a tool to localize epileptogenic zones. Although described several years ago, there has been a recent trend in performing endoscopy-assisted section of the corpus-callosum in patients with generalized seizures. As neurosurgical instruments and techniques continue their progress, endoscopy will be included more frequently as part of the armamentarium in epilepsy surgery.

Abstract: Introduction: Splenic cysts are uncommon and usually do not generate signs and symptoms, being diagnosed by incidental findings. Case report: A 35-year-old, female patient attended the Luiz Gioseffi Jannuzzi School Hospital (HELGJ) presenting episodes of vomiting and abdominal pain in the left hypochondrium. She was hospitalized for diagnostic investigation. Computed tomography showed the splenic cyst. The procedure was the surgical approach by laparotomy with splenectomy. Histopathological confirmed the diagnosis. Discussion: Compared to the scarce reports in literature, the case described presented typical epidemiology and clinical features. Conclusions: Given the rarity of this pathology cases, it is essential to report these in order to elucidate the specificities and also to discuss diagnostic and therapeutic methods.
Unusual Location of Coelomic Cysts  [PDF]
Smadhi Hanen, Ben Jemai Emna, Diouani Mohamed Fethi, Abdennadhar Mahdi, Attia Monia, Ayadi-Kaddour Aida, Megdiche Mohamed Lamine
Open Journal of Respiratory Diseases (OJRD) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojrd.2018.83004
Abstract: Intrathoracic mesothelial cysts are congenital lesions due to an abnormal development of the pericardial coelom. They are generally unilocular and can develop in various sites. We describe a case of multicystic lesions in the anterior mediastinum of a 53-year-old woman discovered in a context of an encysted pleural effusion. Chest computed tomography (CT) scan revealed multiple cystic lesions in the anterior and posterior mediastinum. Surgery was carried out and histopathology and immunohistochemistry confirmed the diagnosis of multiple coelomic cysts of the mediastinum.

Abstract: purpose: to describe the behavior clinical and pathological features of two cases of odontogenic cyst orthokeratinized. case description: in case 1, a 17-year-old woman presented hard and painless swelling in the left posterior mandible. radiographically, a radiolucent area with a radiopaque was observed. a clinical diagnosis of ameloblastoma or odontogenic keratocystic tumor was established. the histopathological examination revealed an orthokeratinized odontogenic cyst. in case 2, a 23-year-old woman presented a radiolucent lesion surrounded by radiopaque halo symmetrically distributed on both partially erupted lower third molars. a clinical diagnosis of bilateral dentigerous cyst (dc) was rended. the histopathological examination showed bilateral orthokeratinized odontogenic cyst. conclusion: orthokeratinized odontogenic cyst should be considered in the differential diagnosis of lesions occurring in the jawbones associated with an impacted tooth, particularly those cases simulating dentigerous cyst. in addition, we observed the importance of radiographs taken prior to orthodontic treatment as an important tool in the diagnosis of oral pathologies. performing routine radiograph is of high clinical value, especially before orthodontic treatment.
