Immunohistochemical Analysis of Laryngeal Chondrosarcoma: A Case Report

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.075

ABSTRACT

Laryngeal chondrosarcoma is a rare entity, reportedly comprising less than 1% of all laryngeal tumors. Obtaining the necessary tissue for a histological examination can be difficult. Another difficult step is distinguishing a chondrosarcoma from a chondroma. This differentiation can be achieved through immunohistochemical analysis.

A Pulsatile Tinnitus Case Associated with Internal Jugular Vein Stenosis Diagnosed by Multidetector Computerised Tomography Angiography

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.552
Synopsis: 
ABSTRACT Tinnitus is a discomforting condition associated with a sound in one or both ears that occurs without an external stimulus and can be either pulsatile or continuous. Vascular and non-vascular factors involve in etiology of pulsatile tinnitus (PT) that requires a careful physical examination and evaluation with proper and sophisticated imaging techniques to identify the cause(s). In clinical experience, it is known that turning neck towards affected ear decreases PT, whereas turning neck towards unaffected side increases PT in venous hum, due to bending of internal jugular vein (IJV) over the transverse process of the atlas which leads to increased blood flow. In this report, we presented a rare PT case caused directly by jugular vein stenosis, in which clinical characteristics were in disagreement with the literature. In our case, PT markedly reduced, instead of being aggravated, when turning neck to unaffected side in a 35-year old woman. Moreover, there were axial maximal intensity above the left jugular bulb and about 85% stenosis in 3-D volume rendering images. We also discussed the differential diagnosis by multidetector computed tomography angiography with respect to its advantageous over other imagining techniques such as CT, MRI, and MRA as well as conventional angiography.

Sigmoid Volvulus in the Paediatric Population

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.451

ABSTRACT

Sigmoid volvulus is a relatively rare condition commonly associated with the elderly. Because of this strong link with elderly adults,  children- including neonates, who are by no means immune to the condition, are more prone to be misdiagnosed and suffer the consequences of a delay in diagnosis.

ABSTRACT

Association between Henoch-Schonlein purpura and Helicobacter pylori infection is rarely reported in the literature. We present a case of Henoch-Schonlein purpura with severe gastrointestinal manifestations, bradycardia and euthyroid sick syndrome, were resolution of disease occurred only after the eradication of Helicobacter pylori infection.
