[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Primary tuberculotic involvement of the salivary glands makes up two per cent of all cases of salivary gland tumefaction that we have had to explore with ultrasonography and sialography. The patients are generally young adults of a low socioeconomic status. Sialography is nonspecific, whereas ultrasonography can suggest the diagnosis in the presence of heterogeneous, hypoechogenic intraglandular lesions associated to adenopathies. An IDR with tuberculin is essential for the diagnosis before treatment.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We had studied in one year 110 cases of scano-pelvimetry, the clinical examination had not found a shrink pound in 41%, revealed by the sceno-pelvimetry. This method is more precisely than the classic pelvimetry, but more expansive. The simultaneous study of echography and pelvimetry had contributed to a better obstetrical decision.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Seven cases of hydatic cysts histologically confirmed were collected during the period of January 1989 to November 1992 among 146 cases of soft tissues tumors at the Tunis Cancer Institut. Muscular echinococcus is encountered in young healthy persons; average age is 24. It interests essentially the muscles of the limbs. In our series, there is no localization on trunk or neck muscles. The slow evolution of the disease must be underlined. US shows the classical pattern of hydatic cyst without muscular calcification. Other muscular fluid collections must be discussed (haematoma, poplitic cyst, pyogenic collections and tuberculous abcess).
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Fifty eight children with nephroblastoma were explored by echotomography before and during treatment. The authors described the modifications of volume and aspect of these tumors under treatment and specified the contribution of echotomography in the approach of nature of tumors, and in assessment of therapeutic results.
