The patient’s liver cyst re-ruptured and was treated with transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE). Case report: A 62-year-old man presented to our hospital complaining of acute-onset lower abdominal pain. He had undergone laparoscopic fenestration of a huge liver cyst in another hospital 2 years prior. Computed ...

Colombia. 3Departamento de Patología. Hospital Militar Central. Universidad Militar Nueva Granada. Bogotá D.C. Colombia. Burkitt’s lymphoma (BL) is one of the high-grade lymphomas, characterized by a rapid growth. They are usually treated with intensive chemotherapy regimens, being normally chemo-sensitive, but at the expense of high toxicity secondary to treatment. Additionally, the compromise of the central nervous system (CNS) implies a major risk as well as greater toxicity, taking into account a worse clinical prognosis with a requirement of more intensive schemes to achieve control of the disease. This implies doubts in the management of older patients with BL ...

Laparoscopic approach for pancreato-splenic abscess from disseminated melioidosis: Surgical outcome and review of literature
Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Laparoscopic approach for pancreato-splenic abscess from disseminated melioidosis: Surgical outcome and review of literature Hiang Jin Tan, Adrian Kah Heng Chiow, Nita Thiruchelvam, Siong San Tan, Lip Seng Lee Hepatopancreatobiliary Unit, Department of Surgery, Changi General Hospital, Singapore 529889. Melioidosis is a severe systemic infection caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei. It commonly affects the lungs, liver and kidneys. Pancreatic and splenic abscess from melioidosis is rare, with few reports in the literature. We present a series of 4 patients with disseminated melioidosis of pancreas and spleen who required surgical intervention. A MEDLINE database review was conducted. Relevant publications were evaluated and demographic data, clinical, radiological findings as well as management options were collected. We found 10 case reports describing this clinical condition. In our series, median age was 57. Median operative time 260 minutes. All four patients failed trial of antibiotic therapy and required surgery. Three underwent distal pancreatosplenectomy and one underwent splenectomy alone. Laparoscopic distal pancreatosplenectomy was successful in two patients ...
