  • Primary lymphoma of appendix presenting as acute appendicitis: A case report. [Journal Article]
  • IJInt J Surg Case Rep 2018 May 07; 48:30-33
  • Caristo G, Griseri G, … Schirru A
  • CONCLUSIONS: The patient received laparotomic appendectomy. The definitive histopathological examination revealed the presence of diffuse large cell B-lymphoma of the appendix. The neoplasms of appendix usually manifest clinically with sign and symptoms of acute appendicitis from luminal obstruction (30-50%). Preoperative diagnosis is difficult and often occurs through histopathological examination.Primary appendiceal lymphoma is rare and there are no clear guidelines for therapy. Primary surgical resection followed by post-operative chemotherapy showed high efficacy. The histopathological examination of all appendectomy is essential.

  • Hypereosinophilic syndrome preceding a diagnosis of B-cell lymphoma. [Journal Article]
  • TTumori 2018 Mar 01; :300891618763211
  • Samarghandi A, Ahuja S, … Fulger I
  • CONCLUSIONS: Reviewing the literature indicates only one case of similar presentation with concomitant HES and DLBCL. Eosinophilia is routinely encountered in clinical practice and as such physicians must be aware of the rarer, more malevolent underlying associations of this condition so as to aid early diagnosis and prompt treatment.
  • Ingested foreign body mimicking acute appendicitis. [Journal Article]
  • IJInt J Surg Case Rep 2018 Apr 09; 46:66-68
  • Reeves JM, Wade MD, Edwards J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Discussion includes a literature review of computed tomography negative appendicitis, as well as the frequency of foreign body mimicking appendicitis. This case demonstrates the importance of the clinical exam even in the face of negative highly sensitive imaging modalities.In conclusion, there are several mimics of acute appendicitis and we present an unusual case of a foreign body mimicking this disorder in a young person. Highly sensitive imaging coupled with history and physical examination remains the standard of care for diagnosing appendicitis; however, clinical acumen must be utilized to formulate a broad differential.
