A rare complication due to ventriculoperitoneal shunt: Abdominal Cerebrospinal Pseudocyst

Since acute abdomen that develops in patients with a history of ventriculoperitoneal shunt surgery can be seen very rarely, the treatment approach is very important in terms of general surgery. In neurosurgery practice, the basic surgical treatment of hydrocephalus is to direct excess cerebrospinal fluid flow from the ventricular system to the intraperitoneal space with the help of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt. Intra-abdominal pseudocysts, which may occur following ventriculoperitoneal shunt surgery, are rare complications that require careful attention in both medical and surgical treatments. Numerous shunt revisions and sterile and/or infectious inflammation can be considered in its etiology. Abdominal pain, tenderness, distension and intra-abdominal mass are the most common clinical findings and sometimes they can lead to acute abdomen in patients.

A Rare Cause of Intestinal Perforation: Annular Appendicitis

The tip of appendicitis may cause adhesion together with inflammation and rarely, it may cause small bowel obstruction by forming annular appendicitis. Rarely ever, cyclic appendicitis can cause perforation of the small bowel. We presented a case of perforation of 1.5'cm in the ileocecal region due to annular appendicitis, which has not been found in the literature

Solated Primary Hydatid Cyst of The Breast; Case Report

Hydatid disease is an endemic anthropozoonosis and is commonly caused by the tapeworm Echinococcus Granulosus.It is endemic in sheep- and cattle-raising regions, seen mainly in Mediterranean countries including Turkey.Echinococcal involvement of the breast is extremely rare, even in endemic countries. We present a 66-year-old female patient with hydatid cyst who presented with the complaint of a mass in the right breast.

A Case of Cervical Rib Diagnosed by Ultrasonography

A cervical rib is a rare skeletal anomaly that develops from the seventh cervical vertebra and is seen in 0.5-2% of the population. It is often asymptomatic and rarely can cause thoracic outlet syndrome. In this case report, a four-year-old girl with a painless swelling in the right supraclavicular region on clinical examination and has a cervical rib that is diagnosed by ultrasonographic evaluation is presented.

Intussusception Due to Ectopic Gastric Mucous Meckel Diverticulum

Meckel's diverticulum is one of the congenital anomalies of the gastrointestinal system. It occurs as a result of the intrauterine failure of the vitelline canal in 5-7 weeks. While it is a pathology that often presents with ileus and bleeding in childhood, can cause life-threatening complications and sometimes is operated for acute abdomen, it can rarely be detected during radiological imaging or laparotomy in adults . Here, a 19-year-old male case who presented with acute abdomen and was diagnosed as ileus as a result of intussusception due to meckel diverticulum with ectopic gastric corpus mucosa is presented by reviewing the literature.

Cesarean Scar Ectopic Pregnancy

Pregnancy in the previous cesarean (hysterotomy) scar is one of the rare forms of ectopic pregnancy. It can be seen once in 2000 pregnancies. It has become more common with the increase in cesarean rates. In this case report, a 38-year-old, gravida 3, parity 2 female patient with a cesarean scar pregnancy which is diagnosed by ultrasonographic evaluation is presented.

The Effects of Tocilizumabi Intravenous Immunoglobulin and Methylprednisolone, Which are Anticytokine Drugs Used in the Treatment of Cytokine Storm in Critical Covid-19 Patients Hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit, on the AP-Lung Images of the Patients

We aimed to show the effects of tocilizumab, intravenous immunoglobulin and methylprednisolone, which are used in the treatment of cytokine storm in critical Covid-19 patients hospitalized in the intensive care unit, on the images of AP-Lung radiographs of the patients. We divided the patients into 3 groups as Group 1 (Tocilizumab: 2X400mg 3 doses IV n=87), Group 2 (Intravenous immunoglobulin: 0.4g/kg/day 5 days IV n=70), Group 3 (Methylprednisolone: 3 x 80 mg IV for 3 days, then tapered by 1 dose every other day. n=70). Patients who were not vaccinated against the SARS-Cov-2 virus were selected. The thorax tomography section of the patients taken at the time of admission to the hospital, and the AP-Lung X-ray on the 7th day before and after anticytokine treatment are given in Table 1. Minimal improvement in infiltrates on chest radiographs was coded as positive, minimal worsening was coded as negative, and no change was coded as neutral. There was no statistically significant difference between the groups in the AP-Lung images on the 7th day after the end of anticytokine therapy (p=0.308). Critical Covid-19 patient, tocilizumab, intravenous immunoglobulin, methylprednisolone, AP-Lung X-ray.

Successful Treatment of Acute Cholecystitis and Pericholecystic Abscess with Percutaneous Cholecystostomy and Percutaneous Drainage in an Elderly Patient

Acute cholecystitis can be defined as an inflammatory disease of the gallbladder. The most common cause is gallbladder stones, which is more common in elderly patients and may cause mortality and morbidity. Removal of inflammation with medical treatment and elective cholecystectomy after about 4-6 weeks and emergency cholecystectomy are the treatment methods that can be preferred and percutaneous cholecystectomy can be preferred as an alternative treatment method that can be performed under local anesthesia, especially in elderly patients who have additional diseases and cannot tolerate general anaesthesia.
