Article: Radiological and CT findings in a extensive upper-limb involvement of Gorham's Disease: a case report.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The Gorham-Stout Syndrome (Gorham's massive osteolysis) is a rare condition in which spontaneous, progressive resorption of bone occurs. The etiology is poorly understood. We reported here a patient who had begun insidiously and was characterized by extensive osteolysis in the left upper limb, with progressive carpal bone resorption. The characteristic radiological and CT findings were presented and the clinical presentation, diagnosis and surgical treatment were discussed in the case. Gorham's disease is rarely involved in the whole upper limb. Histopathological evidences suggest that extensive osteolysis is caused by hemangiomatosis. The characteristic imaging findings may help us to differentiate from malignant neoplasm with progressive bony destruction.Cases Journal 01/2009; 2:7499.
Article: Magnetic resonance imaging and computerised tomography findings in an intraspinal extradural hydatid cyst mimicking tuberculous spondylitis: a case report.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Spinal hydatid cyst with thoracic vertebra involvement is rare but serious condition. We present a 63-year old woman with spinal hydatid disease mimicking tuberculous spondylitis. A case study with Computerised Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging diagnostic findings and surgical treatment is reported in this article. Primary spinal hydatid disease should be considered in the differential diagnosis of tuberculous spondylitis in endemic area. Familiarity with typical imaging appearances of spinal hydatid disease may be helpful in making a correct diagnosis and treatment.Cases Journal 01/2009; 2:7109.
