A 76-year-old woman with a large secundum atrial septal defect, that had been repaired percutaneously, 5 years previously, with an Amplatzer atrial septal defect occlude, referred to our center with fever and Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia. Transesophageal echocardiography revealed a 1.6×1.2 cm mobile mass, like a endocarditis vegetation on the left atrial side of the Amplatzer device. Endocarditis was started to treat. The Amplatzer device was removed with peripheral fragile endocarditis tissue and the defect is closed with a pericardial patch. In this paper, we present a description of late infective endocarditis in an adult with an Amplatzer device.</p> 2021-03-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2014 SIna Multicentric neonatal myofibromatosis 2021-03-16T08:17:10+00:00 FZ Chioukh R Hadhri M Bizid A Ksia K Monastiri <p>Infantile myofibromatosis is a rare, benign proliferative myofibroblastic tumor which occurs mostly in infants and young children. It presents as either solitary or multiple nodules arising from soft tissues, bones, or visceral organs. Accurate diagnosis and differentiation from more aggressive tumors are important because of the variations in the benign clinical course, conservative treatment, and possible spontaneous regression of infantile myofibromatosis. We present a case of multiple infantile myofibromatosis of soft tissues without involvement of visceral organs diagnosed<br>at the neonatal age.</p> 2021-03-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2014 SIna “Countre-coupe injury of the gut”; isolated traumatic mesenteric border jejunal perforation 2021-03-16T09:04:39+00:00 Sheikh Imran Gul Arshad Rashid Imtiaz Wani <p>Blunt trauma abdomen leads to gut perforations commonly on the anti-mesenteric border due to shearing forces. We report a case of a 23-year male who presented to surgical history with a history of blunt trauma to the abdomen. On further evaluation, an isolated perforation of the mesenteric border of jejunum was documented. The perforation was managed by a wedge resection and the patient recuperated well. This case illustrates that traumatic<br>perforations of the gut can also occur on the mesenteric border and may remain clinically silent. We discuss this case in the context of relevant literature.</p> 2021-03-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2014 SIna Colonic malakoplakia in a child 2021-03-16T07:53:39+00:00 Fariba Binesh Shideh Osiya Mohammad Bagher Owlia Mohammad Ghadami Yazdi <p>Malakoplakia is an uncommon inflammatory condition usually affecting the genitourinary tract, which has been associated with infections, tumors, and immunocompromised states. We report a case of malakoplakia in the colon of a 5-year-old girl with a history of bloody diarrhea. Clinically and macroscopically malakoplakia can simulate tumors or abscesses and can cause diagnostic difficulties.</p> 2021-03-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2014 SIna Role of autogenous mandibular bone graft in maxillary alveolar cleft reconstruction 2021-03-16T08:44:33+00:00 Sherin A. Khalam Surej Kumar LK Nikhil Mathew Kurien <p>Secondary alveolar bone grafting is a well established technique in the management of patients with cleft lip and alveolus. The goals of bone grafting determine the selection of grafting material such as cortical or cancellous, membranous or endochondral. In addition, vascularity, host-bed, overall physiologic status of the patient, propensity of infection and surgical expertise needs to be considered. Thus success depends on panoply of variables including the physiologic and mechanical properties of the graft material and the biology of recipient site. Here we report a case of secondary alveolar bone grafting using autogenous mandibular bone graft from symphysis.</p> 2021-03-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2014 SIna Late optical coherence tomography findings in a patient with solar eclipse retinopathy 2021-03-16T09:12:10+00:00 Masoud Reza Manaviat Tahere Rezaee Elahe Abbasi Shavazi <p>Solar retinopathy is a photochemical retinal injury caused by direct or indirect viewing of the sun and characterized by visual distortion and a small yellow or red foveal lesion. Retinal damage can be identified by optical coherence tomography. This paper reports late optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings in a 10-year-old boy with solar retinopathy after watching a solar eclipse. OCT demonstrates abnormalities in the outer foveal retina in late solar eclipse retinopathy with normal Bruch membrane choriocapillaris complex.</p> 2021-03-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2014 SIna A primary extracranial meningioma presenting as a painless nasal root mass 2021-03-16T07:38:01+00:00 Sarah Hassan Daniela Bondin Emma Kitlowski Neel Umapathy <p>Extracranial meningioma remains a rare entity with few cases reported in the literature. This report illustrates a unique case of a 28-year-old woman presenting with a deformity at the root of the nose which was investigated and treated as a primary extracranial meningioma. We discuss the presentation of this rare lesion and the challenges in its diagnosis and management. Literature has been reviewed to provide guidance for clinicians in diagnostic methods. A 28-year-old caucasian woman presented to the ear, nose and throat (ENT) clinic with a painless swelling at the root of the nose. Fine needle aspirations identified cells of an uncertain nature therefore an open biopsy was undertaken. This revealed features in keeping with a benign meningioma. Contrast MRI scan revealed an enhancing lesion involving the crista galli and cranial aspect of the nasal bone. No parenchymal involvement was found and the tumor was categorized as a primary extracranial meningioma. Multidisciplinary involvement from maxillofacial, neurosurgeons and ENT surgeons were required to arrange suitable surgical excision due to local extension of the tumor. The patient was warned of serious side effects including the risk of complete anosmia.</p> 2021-03-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2014 SIna Giant ureteric calculi; report of three cases and management in the era of endourology 2021-03-16T08:58:40+00:00 Sandeep Gupta Kishore KN Khumukcham Somarendra Akoijam Kaku Singh Sinam Rajendra Singh <p>Giant ureteric calculi are rarely seen these days because of early diagnosis of ureteric calculi and subsequent effective treatment by non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures. These giant calculi can cause a significant and irreversible compromise of renal function if not treated in time. Here we report three such cases where ureteric calculi were measured to be more than 5centimeters fulfilling the criteria to be named as giant ureteric calculi and<br>managed successfully using the open method of ureterolithotomy.</p> 2021-03-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2014 SIna Uvulectomy; Symptomatic relief for chronic irritating cough and obstrutive apnoea syndrome in long uvula 2021-03-16T08:04:51+00:00 Surej Kumar LK Shereen A. Khalam Nikhil Mathew Kurien <p>An elongated uvula can flop down and touch various structures in upper airway in the oropharyngeal junction and cause mechanical irritation.1 Here we present a case report of a patient with long uvula with respiratory tract obstruction leading to chronic cough and obstructive apnoea syndrome (OSA), in which uvulectomy was carried out for symptomatic relief.</p> 2021-03-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2014 SIna
