Cellular angiofibroma is a rare benign tumor which is found in the vulvovaginal or inguinoscrotal region. To the best of our knowledge, there have been no reports that describe two cellular angiofibromas on the same side of the scrotum. Here, we report the case of an 89-year-old male patient with two scrotal tumors which were proven to be cellular...

We report computed tomography (CT) findings for a rare case of follicular dendritic cell sarcoma of the greater omentum from a 47-year-old female patient. The tumor presented ash a palpable mass lesion in the umbilical region for the last two months. Multidetector CT scan of the abdomen showed a 14-cm soft-tissue mass with calcification and necrosi...
Article
We present a case of leiomyosarcoma of the right ovarian vein with MRI findings. The patient was a 52-year-old woman who had suffered from right flank pain for one week. Abdominal ultrasound and excretory urography revealed hydronephrosis of the right kidney. Ureteroscopy showed external compression at the right upper third of the ureter. CT and MR...
Article
A 28-year-old woman suffered from frequent headaches. She had a history of a dilatation and curettage for hydatidiform moles. This admission showed markedly elevated levels of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and lactate dehydrogenase. Brain MRI showed a hemorrhagic mass in the left temporal area, with rapid growth. Histology of tumors obtained f...
Article
Uterine epithelioid leiomyosarcoma is a rare neoplasm. There have been no previous reports describing computed tomography (CT) findings for this tumor. A 31-year-old woman presented with a heterogeneous enhancing mass, with internal septa, in the uterus, which was shown on CT images. Histological diagnosis was compatible with epithelioid leiomyosar...
Article
Gluteal intramuscular myxomas with MR images have not been reported before. A 45-year-old man presented with a palpable mass in his right buttock for several months. Magnetic resonance imaging showed an intramuscular cystic lesion with homogeneous signal intensity at the right gluteus muscle, and the mass had thin peripheral enhancement after gadol...
Article
We presented a case of a 63-year-old man with type 2 diabetes mellitus and end-stage renal disease on hemodialysis. Precontrast CT images showed atrophy of kidneys bilaterally and calcification of the abdominal aorta, small branches of bilateral renal arteries and small arteries of the pelvis, including the internal pudendal artery and penile arter...
Article
Inflammatory pseudotumors rarely occur in the spleen. We report such a case with characteristic computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings. A CT scan showed an isodense nodular mass with gradual mild enhancement on delayed-phase contrast-enhanced images. MRI showed a mass with isointense signal on T1-weighted images and...
Article
Cerebral subarachnoid hemorrhage may result from rupture of saccular aneurysms at uncommon location [excluding the anterior communicating artery (ACOM)] of the anterior cerebral artery (ACA). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of helical computed tomography angiography (CTA) in detection and characterization of intracranial an...

A case report of an epidermoid cyst in the conus medullaris with characteristic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings. To describe an epidermoid cyst in the conus medullaris with characteristic MRI findings and point out these findings that correlated well with histologic findings. Taiwan. A 49-year-old man who suffered from pain and weakness i...
Article
The malignant transformation of an ovarian mature cystic teratoma is rare. We presented such a case of a 46-year-old woman with characteristic computed tomography (CT) findings. The patient had suffered from fullness and tenderness of the lower abdomen for one year. A high serum CA-125 level was noted. Computed tomography images showed a left adnex...

A 46-year-old woman complained of persistent abnormal vaginal bleeding over ten days. Her intrauterine device had been removed two years before. Soon after, she suffered from menorrhagia and metrorrhagia. An incidental finding of severe anemia was also noted. In this admission, our initial T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a wel...
Article
We aimed to evaluate the appearance of chest radiographs in patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and correlate these findings with clinical outcomes. We retrospectively reviewed the initial radiograph and a series of follow-up chest radiographs in 26 patients who had symptoms and signs consistent with SARS. Twenty-five patients co...
Article
We described a 61-year-old man with cobalamin deficiency presenting with thoracic myelopathy for one month. Initial T2-weighted MR images revealed abnormal symmetrical hyperintense signal at posterior column of the spinal cord between T7 and T10 levels. The vertebral bone marrow depicted abnormal hypointense signal on both T1 and T2-weighted images...
