  • Biliary pancreatitis in a duplicate gallbladder: a case report and review
           of literature

    • Authors: Alratrout H; Raharimanantsoa M, Brigand C, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractDuplicated gallbladder is a rare congenital anomaly that require special attentions due to its clinical, surgical and diagnostic difficulties. We present a case of a 39-year-old female patient with a duplicated gallbladder who presented with an acute biliary pancreatitis, a case to our knowledge is the first in the literature. A double gallbladder in an abdominal ultrasonography was doubtful, thus a computed tomography scan, a magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography and an endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography were done that confirmed the double gallbladder. A laparoscopic cholecystectomy with an intraoperative cholangiography was performed safely two months after the acute attack. The histopathological report revealed a Y-shaped type 1 double gallbladder according to the Harlaftis et al. classification.

  • Bleb formation in small unruptured intracranial aneurysm as a predictor of
           early rupture

    • Authors: Yamano A; Yanaka K, Uemura K, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractSmall unruptured aneurysms are thought to have a low risk of rupture, but the management of such lesions is still controversial. A 73-year-old man with a small anterior communication artery aneurysm, 4 mm in diameter, while on follow-up, developed an aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage 2 weeks after the detection of a newly emerged bleb on the surface of the aneurysm. In conclusion, the formation of a bleb should be considered as a warning sign of an impending rupture, and treatment should be provided even for patients with small aneurysms.

  • Gastric duplication cyst with elevated CEA level: a case report

    • Authors: Tessely H; Montanier A, Chasse E.
      Abstract: AbstractGastrointestinal tract duplications are congenital malformations rarely seen in adulthood. Gastric duplications (GD) represent 2–9% of it. Malignant transformation of GD is a rare complication described in the literature. We present the case of a 43-year-old man, who presented an abdominal mass and an elevated CEA level. A total gastrectomy was performed and the histological examination described a gastric duplication cysts (GDC) without malignant transformation. It is not the first case of elevation of CEA in GDC without evidence of malignancy described in the literature. Some authors think that GDC are premalignant lesions that envolve with the time to carcinomas. It is recommend that once the GDC is diagnosed to remove surgically the entire cyst even if the patient is asymptomatic.

  • Metastatic lobular breast carcinoma to the pancreas: a case report

    • Authors: Zammit A; James D, Van Rooyen P.
      Abstract: AbstractWe report a case of a 72-year-old female, with an extensive breast cancer history, who presented with abdominal pain to her general practitioner. Cross-sectional imaging demonstrated a lesion in the head of pancreas, which was not amenable to curative resection. Percutaneous biopsy was obtained, which demonstrated metastatic lobular breast cancer. This rare case highlights how previous medical histories may assist in final pathological diagnosis.

  • Pharmacobezoar—a rare case presented as gastric outlet obstruction

    • Authors: Jain S; Agarwal L, Khyalia A, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractBEZOARS are retained concretions of indigestible foreign material that accumulate and conglomerate in the gastrointestinal tract, most commonly in the stomach. Prevalence of bezoar is 0.4%. Bezoars are classified in four categories: phytobezoars; trichobezoars; pharmacobezoars; lactobezoars. A 58-year-old man admitted with complains of pain abdomen and recurrent vomiting since last 3 months. Upper GI endoscopic biopsy reported—chronic gastritis with very occasional non-caseating epitheloid granuloma in lamina propria, no evidence of neoplasia' Crohn’s disease. Keeping Crohn’s as diagnosis patient was given mesalamine 400 mg tid by gastrophyscian. But patient did not respond so the patient was advised surgical management. Repeat UGI endoscopy revealed multiple pills (mesalamine) in the stomach with gastric outlet obstruction (GOO). Around 40 pills were extracted with the help of flower basket, and then patient develope GOO and underwent Laparoscopic gastrojejunostomy and truncal vagotomy.

  • Atraumatic splenic rupture secondary to abscess in a hemodialysis patient:
           a rare and fatal cause of acute abdomen diagnosed late

    • Authors: Kafadar M; Teker İ, Gök M, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractSplenic abscess is a very rare condition in the general population. It is more likely to develop in association with underlying comorbidities and trauma. More attention should be paid in patients with immunosuppression, diabetes mellitus, and congenital or acquired immunocompromise. Splenic rupture secondary to nontraumatic abscess causing acute abdomen is a rarer condition. Herein, we report a 55-year-old hemodialysis patient who presented with signs and symptoms of late generalized peritonitis. The patient was operated under emergency conditions and diagnosed with splenic abscess rupture, for which splenectomy with drainage procedure was performed. In such patients, the morbidity and mortality rates vary depending on the intraoperative and postoperative risks.

  • Gastric hibernoma: a novel location and presentation of a rare tumor

    • Authors: Smith S; Feczko A, Mihura M, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractWe present a case of gastric hibernoma, an unusual tumor with a location novel to the literature. A 39-year-old female presented with one year of upper gastrointestinal bleeding and dysphagia. Gastroenterology performed an esophagogastroduodenoscopy with ultrasound and identified a 6 cm mass within the muscularis propria of the antrum. Computed tomography demonstrated a 9.7 × 7.8 × 4.8 cm3 heterogeneous antral mass with internal septa. A distal gastrectomy with Bilroth I gastroduodenostomy was performed with 4 cm proximal and 2 cm distal margins. Excision was appropriate to make the diagnosis, exclude malignancy, and remove a symptomatic mass. Hibernoma was confirmed by histopathology. These are rare tumors of brown fat named for their resemblance to the thermogenic tissue found in hibernating animals. They typically present as a slowly enlarging mass of the thigh or shoulder. To our knowledge, this is the first presentation of a hibernoma as a submucosal gastric mass.

  • Phosphaturic mesenchymal tumor, an unusual localization in head and neck

    • Authors: Pelo S; Gasparini G, Garagiola U, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractPhosphaturic mesenchymal tumor (PMT) is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm associated with tumor-induced osteomalacia involving bone and soft tissue that produces paraneoplastic hypophosphatemic osteomalacia. The common physiologic defect in this conditions involves an impairment in renal tubular phosphate reabsorption with a downregulation of renal 1α-hydroxylase activity, while calcium metabolism remains essentially unaffected. Microscopic features consist of spindle cells, multinucleated giant cells and calcifications embedded in a chondromyxoid matrix with variable cellularity and prominent vascularity. Approximately 95% of PMTs involve the extremities and appendicular skeleton, with only 5% occurring in the head and neck region. Localization in the head and neck is pretty uncommon, nose and paranasal sinuses are preferentially affected. Due to its rarity, the purpose of the study was to report a new case of PMT whose locations in temporomandibular joint was never reported in literature.

  • Pure low-grade DCIS in a male patient: a case report

    • Authors: Zaesim A; Nguyen V, Scarborough C.
      Abstract: AbstractBreast cancer in males represents a small proportion of all cancers diagnosed. Pure ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), a low-grade form of breast cancer, is even more rare in male patients. We present a case of a 47-year-old male patient with a tender breast lump that was noted for 6 months. He was subsequently found to have a low grade, pure micropapillary and cribriform type DCIS with no evidence of invasive disease. Current literature does not provide distinct guidelines regarding management of male breast cancer, and it is currently managed in a similar fashion to female breast cancer.

  • Dilated cardiomyopathy secondary to acute pancreatitis caused by
           hypertriglyceridemia

    • Authors: Greer J; Beck W, Bhavaraju A, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractA 30-year-old male presented to an outside facility with acute pancreatitis and triglycerides of 1594. He was transferred to our facility after becoming febrile, hypoxic and in acute renal failure with triglycerides of 4243. CT scan performed showed wall-off pancreatic necrosis. He underwent continuous renal replacement therapy and his acute renal failure resolved. He was treated with broad spectrum antibiotics and discharged. He developed a fever to 101 a week later and was found to have a large infected pancreatic pseudocyst. This was managed with an IR placed drain. This was continued for 6 weeks. He came to the emergency department several weeks later with shortness of breath and 3+ edema to bilateral lower extremities and lower abdomen. TTE performed showed an EF of 15%. He was diuresed 25 L during that stay. His heart failure was medically managed. We present this case of dilated cardiomyopathy secondary to acute pancreatitis.

  • Laparoscopic management of snare entrapment during colonoscopic
           polypectomy

    • Authors: Martin R; Soliman M.
      Abstract: AbstractColonoscopic polypectomy reduces the risk of colon cancer development by interrupting the adenoma to carcinoma progression. A variety of techniques are available to perform polypectomy including the use of forceps or snare device with or without electrocautery. While forceps polypectomy tends to be the procedure of choice for small polyps, snare polypectomy has been found to be the preferred method for removal of polyps 1 cm or greater in size. The two most common post-polypectomy complications are bleeding and perforation. Though rare in the case of polypectomy, any mechanical device used in a procedure has an inherent risk of malfunction. Here, we present a case of an attempted snare polypectomy with malfunctioning of the device, failure of endoscopic retrieval and subsequent management with laparoscopic resection of the affected segment.

    • Authors: Loutfy A; Vasani S.
      Abstract: AbstractLocally advancement of right colon cancer to the surrounding organs requiring surgical intervention is an extensive procedure associated with numerous risks. There are not many cases of which this phenomenon may occur. En bloc pancreaticoduodenectomy and resection of involved viscera should be considered for patients who can appropriately undergo this exhaustive surgery. Our objective is to report the experience we had with this patient who underwent an en bloc pancreaticoduodenectomy and right hemicolectomy and review literature. Our method was a retrospective review of a patient with colon cancer

    • Authors: Al-Maghrabi H; Meliti A.
      Abstract: AbstractWe report a rare case of 42-year-old female patient with bilateral primary ovarian Burkitt lymphoma (BL). Primary BLs are rare ovarian oncology neoplasms. Only few cases are reported in English literature, most of them are presented in pediatric and young adult age groups. Rare cases are reported in adult females. Although BL is a rare primary ovarian neoplasm, it is very important to establish an accurate diagnosis as early as possible for therapeutic purposes.

  • Symptomatic lymphangioma of the adrenal gland: a case report

    • Authors: Liechti R; Fourie L, Fischli S, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractLymphangiomas (LAs) are rare benign tumors of the lymphatic vessels. In total, 95% of all reported LAs are located in the head, neck and the mediastinum. LAs of the adrenal gland are very rare and currently, only ~54 cases have been reported in literature. We present a case of a big left-sided adrenal LA. Abdominal imaging revealed a big cystic lesion in the left upper abdomen of unknown origin. For diagnostic and therapeutic reasons we performed explorative midline laparotomy. The left adrenal gland was found to be the origin of the cystic tumor. Hence, the patient underwent adrenalectomy in order to remove the intact cystic lesion. Diagnosis was then confirmed by histological examination. With adrenal LAs being a very rare entity, diagnosis is challenging and only little evidence exists on treatment options. We discuss diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical approaches concerning such cases and provide an overview of the current literature.

  • Torsion of a wandering spleen as a cause of portal hypertension and
           mesenteric varices: a rare aetiology

    • Authors: Rafie B; AbuHamdan O, Trengganu N, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractA wandering spleen is a condition characterized by excessive splenic mobility due to the mal-development or the laxity of its ligaments that leads to migration from its normal anatomical location. This condition renders its long mobile vascular pedicle liable to torsion and occasional infarction. Herein, we report a case of a 27-year-old nulliparous woman who presented with acute abdominal pain and a tender right-sided pelvi-abdominal mass. CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis revealed a torted, infarcted wandering spleen with portal hypertension and mesenteric varices that mandated an emergency splenectomy. Although there are a few reported cases describing the association of wandering spleen with portal hypertension and fundal varices, cases of mesenteric varices are extremely rare. To the best of our knowledge, this case is considered the third reported case of a wandering spleen which was subsequently complicated by portal hypertension and mesenteric varices that was managed effectively with splenectomy.

  • Community-acquired infection to Raoultella ornithinolytica presenting as
           appendicitis and shock in a healthy individual

    • Authors: Hajjar R; Schwenter F, Su S, et al.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTRaoultella ornithinolytica and Raoultella planticola are histamine-producing bacteria that are usually found in fish and water. They are associated with scombroid syndrome that presents with vomiting and flushing. A wide range of infections with these germs is reported, but mainly in fragile hospitalized patients with multiple comorbidities. We report the case of a 54-year-old healthy patient who presented with 24-hours abdominal pain, vomiting, flushing and shock. The abdominal examination showed guarding in the right lower quadrant (RLQ), and the abdominal CT scan images showed a thickened terminal ileum and a distended appendix. The patient underwent a surgical exploration revealing a normal terminal ileum but an inflamed appendicular base. Raoultella ornithinolytica was found in blood cultures and in the liquid retrieved from the RLQ. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a severe life-threatening intra-abdominal presentation due to a community-acquired R. ornithinolytica infection.

  • Merkel cell carcinoma: extended lymphadenectomy and reconstruction with
           biosynthetic prosthesis

    • Authors: Coppola Bottazzi E; Noviello A, Moles N, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractIntroductionMerkel cell carcinomas (MCC) is an aggressive neuroendocrine carcinoma originating from the Merkel cell in the dermo-epidermal junction. Only 10% of MCC occur on the skin of the trunk.Case reportWe report a case of Merkel’s abdominal carcinomas treated with extensive inguinal lymphadenectomy and reconstruction of the abdominal wall and inguinal canal using prosthesis GORE® BIO-A®.DiscussionImmunohistochemical analysis by tumor-specific markers is crucial for diagnosis and permits differentiation from other tumors of the skin. MCC is an aggressive tumor with poor prognosis.ConclusionsFor primary tumors without indications of the presence of organ metastases complete surgical excision is the gold standard. Gore BIO-A is a biosynthetic prosthesis with manageable structure that allows it to be positioned and shaped according to needs, its strength provides for excellent support for the reconstruction of the inguinal canal wall.

  • Synchronous nephrectomy and cavoatrial tumor thrombectomy under
           normothermic extracorporeal circulation and beating heart

    • Authors: Mavrigiannaki E; Fesatidis I, Kalogridaki E, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractFormation of tumor thrombus is an occasional manifestation of renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Intravascular invasion of the renal vein and thereafter the inferior vena cava (IVC) might in very rare cases extend into the cardiac chambers. The subtle course and symptoms of such cases alongside with the engagement of vital anatomical structures marks them as a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. Aggressive surgical intervention has proven to be critical for survival rates in such cases; however total synchronous resection remains a challenge for the surgical team and a debate for the medical community. Following we report the case of a 66-year-old male who was diagnosed with a RCC of the right kidney accompanied by a tumor thrombus extending into the right atrium, after he suffered a presyncope episode. The patient underwent a radical en bloc nephrectomy and tumor thrombectomy under extracorporeal circulation with beating heart.

  • Volvulus with bowel necrosis after laparoscopic appendectomy. Migration of
           Clip'

    • Authors: Kakaty D; Mueller K, Weippert F, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractAbout 2.8% of patients develop small bowel obstruction, mostly following an open approach appendectomy. Case Report: we present an 18-year-old girl with acute abdomen 10 days following laparoscopic appendectomy. An emergency laparotomy was performed which revealed bowel necrosis and an impacted slipped clip on the mesenterial side of the bowel with signs of bowel strangulation and necrosis. Bowel resection was carried out with primary enteroenteric anastomosis. We suspect the sharp ends of the open clip allowed it to become lodged in the bowel segment resulting in bowel obstruction and subsequent necrosis. It is possible that the clip migrated or was a failed deployment. To our knowledge, this is the first report of mechanical bowel obstruction after laparoscopic appendectomy caused by aberrant surgical clip.

  • Abdominal hernia and the unexpected final diagnosis

    • Authors: Cevallos J; Moyon M, Pozo N, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractMucinous neoplasm of the appendix are rare entities, among these, mucinous cystadenomas contribute to 31–34%. Cystadenomas often produce extensive dilatation of the appendix with epithelial atypia. Spontaneous perforation often occurs in 20%, leading to mucin distribution throughout the peritoneal cavity. Half of the patients are completely asymptomatic and are detected as an incidental diagnosis, others symptoms include a palpable mass, hernias, weight loss, peritonism or even intestinal obstruction. We present a case of a 71-year-old female, she presented with a palpable mass in the upper abdomen. A ventral hernia was the most likely diagnosis and hernioplasty was planned. At surgery, a mucinous mass was discovered and mucous material was found free en the peritoneal cavity. Also, a perforated appendix and a mass in the cecum was found. Patient underwent full recovery. Pathology reported pseudomyxoma peritonei as the final diagnosis.

  • Haemangiopericytoma of the greater omentum: a rare tumour requiring
           long-term follow-up

    • Authors: Vasdeki D; Bompou E, Diamantis A, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractHaemangiopericytomas (HPC) are highly vascularized tumours located in any part of the body where capillaries can be found. Since 2002, they have been re-classified under the umbrella ‘extrapleural Solitary Fibrous Tumour (SFT)’ and the term HPC is nowadays used to describe a growth pattern rather than a clinical entity. Their biological behaviour varies and they require a long-term follow-up since they may recur or metastasise several years after successful treatment. We present the case of a gentleman with HPC of the greater omentum initially appeared in 1998. HPC rarely develops in the greater omentum and only 20 cases have been described in the literature till today. Despite complete excision the mass re-appeared in 2011 and 2017, 13 and 19 years after initial treatment. Surgical management included en bloc excision of three lesions along with greater omentum. No further treatment was required.

  • Primary jejunal Burkitt lymphoma in a child: ultrasonic detection

    • Authors: Okamoto T; Sekiya A, Daifu T, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractGastrointestinal Burkitt lymphoma (BL) is a highly aggressive malignancy in childhood, and early treatment is critical for its favorable prognosis. Ultrasonography is a widely accepted initial imaging workup; therefore, recognition of the sonographic features of BL should contribute to its early diagnosis and initiation of treatment. We present a 4-year-old boy with primary jejunal BL with intussusception mimicking presentation, in which initial abdominal US allowed sustainable detection and characterization of the intestinal lesion. Jejunotomy was performed and histopathological analysis revealed a ‘starry sky’ pattern and c-myc split signals characteristic of BL. The patient remains disease-free following chemotherapy.

  • Retrograde jejunojejunal intussusception in a pregnant female after
           laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass

    • Authors: Khan K; Saeed S, Persaud A, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractAdult intussusception is a rare complication after laparoscopic Roux-En-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) surgery. Incidence of intussusception is on the rise as the demand of bariatric surgeries is increased to treat morbid obesity. Among the bariatric surgeries, LRYGB gastric bypass results in significantly higher weight loss with thinning of the mesentery resulting in increased risk for intussusception. Majority of intussusception cases after gastric bypass have been reported in non-pregnant patients. We report a case of retrograde jejunojejunal intussusception in 6 weeks pregnant female following laparoscopic gastric bypass, which was diagnosed with abdominal magnetic resonance imaging and managed successfully with resection and revision of the anastomosis.

  • Appendico ilial knotting: a rare cause of small bowel obstruction

    • Authors: Kifle A; Tesfaye S.
      Abstract: AbstractSmall bowel obstruction (SBO) is one of the most common acute surgical conditions that needs immediate innervation to prevent the morbidity and mortality associated with it. The common causes of SBO are different in developed and developing nations. Well-versed knowledge of the rare causes of SBO including its option of management is necessary. In this article, we present a case of an acute SBO secondary to Appendico-ileal knotting. The diagnostic difficulty and the options of management are discussed

  • An unusual cause for small bowel obstruction as a complication of an
           ileostomy formation

    • Authors: Ramdwar N; Cox D, Aldujaili T.
      Abstract: AbstractIleostomy formation is a fundamental component in the surgical management of many gastrointestinal diseases and like all intra-abdominal surgeries, small bowel obstruction is a recognized complication. In this paper we discuss a case of a 44-year-old female who previously had a loop ileostomy for slow bowel transit in the presence of spinal bifida. She presented for subsequent total colectomy because of ongoing pain due to chronic colonic dilation. At surgery, the stoma was not revised and the efferent loop was divided at the peritoneal level of the anterior abdominal wall. Six days postoperatively, the patient developed a small bowel obstruction as a result of the remnant efferent loop within the anterior abdominal wall, forming a cystic mass compressing the ileostomy, requiring surgical intervention. As far as we are aware, this is the first case of small bowel obstruction described due to this unusual etiology.
