Pages:

Adnexa masses occur in one out of two hundred pregnancies
(1). Many are benign ovarian cysts diagnosed in women
during antenatal care and managed conservatively with success.
Occasionally, ovarian accidents occur that necessitate
emergency surgeries. However, in women, unbooked during
pregnancy, presentation to hospital may occur for the first
time in the puerperium and it may pose a diagnostic challenge.
We present the case of a 33-year old multipara who
presented with acute abdomen in the puerperium. The initial

Aorto-cavitary Fistula: A Complication of Infective Endocarditis

DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.221

ABSTRACT
Aorto-cavitary fistulae are rare complications of infective endocarditis. The diagnosis, in the absence of concomitant aortic valve disease, replacement of aortic valve with homograft or prosthetic valve, periannular abscess and negative blood culture, requires a high index of suspicion and has important prognostic and management significance. The sensitivity of the Modified Duke Criteria is challenged in this case report with a documented right sinus of valsalva fistula to the right ventricle seen on transthoracic echocardiography.

Acute Haematogenous Anaerobic Osteomyelitis in Sickle Cell Disease: A Case Report and Review of the Literature

Patients with sickle cell disease are more susceptible to acute anaerobic osteomyelitis due to focal gut mucosal ischaemia, translocation of bacteria, and seeding in infarcted bone marrow. Modulation of the immune system is also present. The isolation of anaerobic organisms requires a high index of suspicion, correct specimen collection procedures and meticulous specimen handling. Bacteroides is the predominant organism isolated. Intra-osseous gas in the bone may be seen within four days and radiographs are therefore useful earlier than with aerobic osteomyelitis.
