Differential diagnosis of fat-containing lesions in the inguinal canal using ultrasound

Introduction There are several sites of reduced strength in the abdominal wall. Symmetrical inguinal canals, which are the most common location of hernia, are one of such sites. Furthermore, other pathological lesions that should be included in the differential diagnosis may be found here. The aim of the paper is to present fat-containing lesions located in the inguinal canal based on both our own experience and literature. Embryogenesis and differences in the structure and content of the

Immune-mediated hemolysis in a postoperative patient Case report: anti-U and differential diagnosis

We present the differential diagnosis for a Coombs-positive immune hemolysis having onset during hospitalization and, in particular, during the postoperative period. The stimulus for this article was a delayed hemolytic transfusion reaction (DHTR) due to anti-U following open-heart surgery. The initial clinical and serologic findings led us to consider other causes of immune hemolysis which are reviewed in this article. To our knowledge, this is the fourth case of a DHTR due to anti-U to be

A reminder of peristalsis as a useful tool in the prenatal differential diagnosis of abdominal cystic masses

With routine antenatal ultrasound and recent advances in ultrasound technology, fetal intraabdominal cystic masses are recognized more often and are better characterized than in the past. They may be classified as solid and cystic, and may originate from multiple structures. When considering the extensive differential diagnosis of cystic masses, the observation of peristalsis narrows the possibilities to the gastrointestinal tract. To find this feature on ultrasound, the examiner must expressly

epithelioid tumor at this site is mesothelioma. The last but not least group includes secondary malignant tumors without an adipocyte component located in intra-abdominal fat. This is the most numerous group with prevailing carcinoma foci. For each of these groups, the authors present ultrasound features of individual lesions and discuss their differential diagnosis. In the vast majority of cases, the material for cytological and histological analysis can be obtained during ultrasound-guided procedures

On the other hand, the absence of significant ankle and foot joint effusion or synovitis may be an important additional feature to minimize the possibility of inflammatory arthritis in the differential diagnostic workup. Moreover, the additional presence of tenosynovitis limits the differential diagnosis of isolated

The assessment of intrabulbar tumor vasculature combined with a US B examination and other ultrasound traits determined with CDI enable the
