A Rare Cause of Acute Airway Obstruction: The Mixed Laryngopyocele

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.417

ABSTRACT

The laryngocele is an uncommon cystic dilatation of the saccule or appendix of the laryngeal ventricle, filled with air and communicating with the lumen of the larynx. Infection of laryngocele or laryngopyocele is exceptional.

Considering the rarity of the laryngoceles and the even rarer laryngopyocele, we describe an uncommon case of a mixed laryngopyocele causing acute symptoms.

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.405

ABSTRACT

Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disease with both sight and life-threatening sequelae. It can be a diagnostic challenge as there is no definitive test. The IWOS has recommended guidelines to improve diagnostic certainty to improve early detection. The authors present a case of bilateral panuveitis and biopsy proven sarcoid tattoo granuloma. The roles of a multi-disciplinary team and early introduction of steroid-sparing agents are highlighted.

Hydrocoele of the Canal of Nuck: A Case Report

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.234

ABSTRACT

Hydrocoele of the canal of Nuck occurs due to failure of obliteration of the processus vaginalis in females. It is a rare cause of groin swellings in these patients, and diagnosis can be easily confirmed with ultrasound imaging. Surgical excision and high ligation of the patent processus vaginalis (PPV) is the standard of care. A case of a paediatric patient with hydrocele of the canal of Nuck is presented, in whom successful surgical treatment was performed, with confirmation of the pathology by histology.
