Oral Medicine & radiology Navodaya Dental College Raichur.Karnataka. India Glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC) is an extremely rare cyst of jaw bone with only 182 cases documented so far in the English literature. GOC is considered to be a locally aggressive lesion with high rate of recurrence. Anterior mandible is the most common site of involvement for GOC, involvement of the maxillary bone which is a rare occurrence. The clinical and radiographic finding of GOC are varied & often pathognomic. As clinical & radiographic findings are overlapping with those of other odontogenic cyst, a careful histopathological examination is needed to arrive at a definite diagnosis of GOC. In the present paper we reported a rare case of GOC in a 23yrs old male involving maxillary bone along with a review of literature focussing on clinical & radiological presentation and treatment outcome.

Idiopathic Spontaneous Pneumoperitoneum: When Not to Operate

Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Idiopathic Spontaneous Pneumoperitoneum: When Not to Operate Giang Quach D.O.1, Sahithi Gogineni M.D.2, Chadi Faraj D.O. 3,  Abby Navratil M.D.4 1McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University, Chicago, IL 2Wayne State University School of Medicine- Detroit, MI 3,4 Beaumont Hospital- Trenton/Dearborn, MI Pneumoperitoneum is often a surgical emergency related to gastrointestinal tract perforation.  On rare occasions, free intraperitoneal air can be present without any discernible cause and is considered Idiopathic Spontaneous Pneumoperitoneum (ISP).  Deciding which patients with ISP can be managed conservatively would help prevent some patients from undergoing unnecessary surgery. We describe here two cases of successful management of ISP and the review of literature of ISP management for the past 29 years. In the first case, a patient with ISP with no significant abdominal symptoms was successfully managed nonoperatively. In the second case, a patient with ISP and symptoms of small bowel obstruction was successfully treated surgically with exploratory laparotomy and small bowel resection. We recommend conservative management for the subset of ISP patients with no sign of peritonitis or sepsis.

Crowned dens syndrome: a case report followed by an update on differential diagnosis and treatment

Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Crowned dens syndrome: a case report followed by an update on differential diagnosis and treatment Yahya El Soufi**, Georgio El Koubayati**, Ahmad El Kayed**, Mariana Mezher** Karen Nicolas*** and Tony El Murr* *Specialist in Internal medicine and Clinical Immunology, Head of Medicine Department, Middle East Institute of Health University Hospital - Bsalim, Lebanon **Faculty of Medical Science, Lebanese University, Hadath, Lebanon *** Chief of Radiology department, Middle East Institute of Health University Hospital - Bsalim, Lebanon. Introduction Crowned dens syndrome (CDS) is a rare clinical presentation of chondrocalcinosis or calcium pyrophosphate crystal deposition (CPPD) disease, characterized by fever, neck pain and stiffness, associated with increased biological markers of inflammation. Diagnosis is made mainly via imaging, and the best modality remains the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the neck showing calcification and calcium pyrophosphate crystals deposition around the odontoid process (1). The aim of this report is to increase awareness of this rare and ill-known clinical tableau and to review its complications and the latest modalities of its diagnosis and treatment. Clinical case: An 83-year-old female patient presented to the emergency department (ED) of the Middle East Institute of Health (MEIH) with severe acute onset neck stiffness and pain of 10/10 intensity, radiating to the submandibular area and reaching the occipital part of the head, associated with nausea and 2 episodes of chills one day prior to presentation. Patient denied any recent history of trauma or surgery of the head and neck. Physical exam at that time was only remarkable for marked limitation of neck motion, and positive Kernig and Brudzinski signs. No skin changes, facial sinuses tenderness, cervical lymphadenopathies or neck swellings were noted. Vital signs at ED were within normal range except for a low grade fever. Laboratory work-up upon presentation showed ...

Ototoxicity and neurotoxicity from exposure to a mixture of organic solvents and noise, a case report

Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Ototoxicity and neurotoxicity from exposure to a mixture of organic solvents and noise, a case report Rebeca Velasco-Reyna1, Ana Luisa Nayeli Torres-Flores2, Rubén Rojo-Ramírez2, Guadalupe Aguilar-Madrid3, Arturo Torres-Valenzuela4, Cuauhtémoc Arturo Juárez-Pérez4 1Área de Enfermedades de Trabajo, Coordinación de Salud en el Trabajo, Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social, Centro Médico Nacional Siglo XXI; 2Coordinación de Evaluación de Salud en el Trabajo, Hospital General de Zona 30 Iztacalco. Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social; 3Claustro Universitario, Chihuahua Chih. México; 4Unidad de Investigación de Salud en el Trabajo, Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social, Centro Médico Nacional Siglo XXI Background: Neuropsychological alterations and decreased hearing, are related to organic solvents (OS) exposure; and if noise is present it potentiates the hearing damage. Aim: to evaluate neuropsychological performance and hearing of a 50 years old worker, occupationally exposed to OS mixtures for 26 years (toluene, ethyl acetate and isopropyl alcohol) and noise > 85 dB (A). Design of study: Report of a case assessed by Neuropsychological tests, CT and SPECT studies of hearing and clinic-occupational history. Results: He presented, loss between 35 to > 55 dB HL of his hearing in both ears, both in low frequencies (125 Hz-2 kHz) as well as the treble ones (3-8 kHz), in relation to his age. There was an otoacoustic emissions absence at the same frequencies. He showed cerebellar atrophy, cognitive, motor and emotional disorders. Conclusions: We Integrated diagnosis of: moderate to severe hearing loss, mental and behaviour disorders due to the simultaneous exposure to noise and an OS mixture, mainly toluene. It should fully evaluate workers exposed to noise and OS. Keywords: Ototoxicity, neurotoxicity, toluene, noise, emissions otoacoustic audiometry ...

A rare branching pattern of the celiac trunk associated with an accessory aberrant cystic duct

Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports A rare branching pattern of the celiac trunk associated with an accessory aberrant cystic duct Maryna Kornieieva1 and Chase Doiron2 1PhD, MD, Anatomy, Histology, and Embryology Department AUC School of Medicine, Lowlands, Sint Maarten; 21st year student of the AUC School of Medicine, Lowlands, Sint Maarten During routine educational dissection of the upper part of the abdominal cavity in a female cadaver (67 years old, Netherlands) a unique association of two rare biliary and vascular patterns was discovered. The gastroduodenal artery originated from the celiac trunk along with the right hepatic, gastric and splenic arteries, and gave origin to the accessory right and left hepatic vessels. The right hepatic artery took the course typical for the common hepatic artery; however, as a component of the portal triad, the artery was located behind the bile duct and portal vein. Next to the hilum of the liver, it branched off the cystic artery to the gallbladder and bifurcated into two segmental hepatic branches. The described hepatic vascular pattern was associated with the presence of an accessory aberrant cystic duct connecting the body of the gallbladder with the right anterior inferior segmental bile duct. The case is reported to emphasize the importance of a detailed preoperative investigation of the patients considered for open and laparoscopic procedures on the liver and gallbladder documenting the variability of both the biliary and vascular patterns. Keywords: gastroduodenal artery, celiac trunk variability, accessory retroportal right hepatic artery, aberrant accessory cystic duct ...
