Focal prostatic atrophy: mimicry of prostatic cancer on TRUS and 3D-MRSI studies

Prostatic atrophy which represents a form of adaptive response to injury most commonly to inflammation and/or chronic ischemia is a histological abnormality frequently found in prostate biopsies and autopsies. Although commonly found, this lesion is rarely reported in the prostatic… Read moreFocal prostatic atrophy: mimicry of prostatic cancer on TRUS and 3D-MRSI studies

Primary angiosarcoma of the abdominal aorta: a case report and literature review (aortic angiosarcoma)

Fewer than 140 cases of aortic sarcoma have been reported with only 34 classified as angiosarcoma. These rare malignancies most often mimic aortoiliac occlusive or aneurysmal arteriosclerotic disease both clinically and on imaging studies, and the large majority are unexpected… Read morePrimary angiosarcoma of the abdominal aorta: a case report and literature review (aortic angiosarcoma)

Leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata and subcutaneous myoma—a rare complication of laparoscopic myomectomy

We present a case of leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata (LPD) after laparoscopic myomectomy with imaging features corroborating laparoscopic tract dissemination of the tumor. This would suggest a subset cases of LPD may be secondary to transcoelomic dissemination of a primary uterine… Read moreLeiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata and subcutaneous myoma—a rare complication of laparoscopic myomectomy

Adenosquamous carcinoma of the extrahepatic bile duct: clinicopathologic and radiologic features

Background To retrospectively analyze computed tomography (CT) features of adenosquamous carcinoma (ASC) of the extrahepatic bile duct and to correlate them with pathologic findings. Methods Six patients who underwent radical surgical resection for ASC of extrahepatic bile duct were included….
