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> Fariba Binesh, Shideh Osiya, Mohammad Bagher Owlia, Mohammad Ghadami Yazdi Copyright (c) 2014 SIna https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://journalofcasereport.com/ojs/index.php/jrcp/article/view/42 Tue, 23 Mar 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Role of autogenous mandibular bone graft in maxillary alveolar cleft reconstruction http://journalofcasereport.com/ojs/index.php/jrcp/article/view/45 <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> Sherin A.

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> Masoud Reza Manaviat, Tahere Rezaee, Elahe Abbasi Shavazi Copyright (c) 2014 SIna https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://journalofcasereport.com/ojs/index.php/jrcp/article/view/48 Tue, 23 Mar 2021 00:00:00 +0000 A primary extracranial meningioma presenting as a painless nasal root mass http://journalofcasereport.com/ojs/index.php/jrcp/article/view/40 <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> Sarah Hassan, Daniela Bondin, Emma Kitlowski, Neel Umapathy Copyright (c) 2014 SIna https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://journalofcasereport.com/ojs/index.php/jrcp/article/view/40 Tue, 23 Mar 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Giant ureteric calculi; report of three cases and management in the era of endourology http://journalofcasereport.com/ojs/index.php/jrcp/article/view/46 <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> Sandeep Gupta, Kishore KN, Khumukcham Somarendra, Akoijam Kaku Singh, Sinam Rajendra Singh Copyright (c) 2014 SIna https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://journalofcasereport.com/ojs/index.php/jrcp/article/view/46 Tue, 23 Mar 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Bacterial endocarditis on transcatheter Amplatzer device http://journalofcasereport.com/ojs/index.php/jrcp/article/view/41 <p>Infective endocarditis is a rare but serious complication following transcatheter closure of atrial septal defect. 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> Federica Iezza, Roberto Cini, Paolo Sordini, Christian Pristipino Copyright (c) 2014 SIna https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://journalofcasereport.com/ojs/index.php/jrcp/article/view/41 Tue, 23 Mar 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Multicentric neonatal myofibromatosis http://journalofcasereport.com/ojs/index.php/jrcp/article/view/44 <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> FZ Chioukh, R Hadhri, M Bizid, A Ksia, K Monastiri Copyright (c) 2014 SIna https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://journalofcasereport.com/ojs/index.php/jrcp/article/view/44 Tue, 23 Mar 2021 00:00:00 +0000 “Countre-coupe injury of the gut”; isolated traumatic mesenteric border jejunal perforation http://journalofcasereport.com/ojs/index.php/jrcp/article/view/47 <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> Sheikh Imran Gul, Arshad Rashid, Imtiaz Wani Copyright (c) 2014 SIna https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://journalofcasereport.com/ojs/index.php/jrcp/article/view/47 Tue, 23 Mar 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Uvulectomy; Symptomatic relief for chronic irritating cough and obstrutive apnoea syndrome in long uvula http://journalofcasereport.com/ojs/index.php/jrcp/article/view/43 <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> Surej Kumar LK, Shereen A.
