- [Heart failure with normal heart revealing complex arteriovenous malformation of the lower limb in a child: case study and literature review]. [Case Reports]Pan Afr Med J 2018; 31:131PA
- Arteriovenous malformations (AVM) are congenital high-flow vascular defects. They are very rare in children. Diagnosis and treatment are often delayed due to their atypical place of occurrence and to their variable clinical manifestations. We report the case of a child treated at the National Centre Hospitalier Albert Royer Children, Dakar. A boy aged 9 years was referred from a health facility i…
Arteriovenous malformations (AVM) are congenital high-flow vascular defects. They are very rare in children. Diagnosis and treatment are often delayed due to their atypical place of occurrence and to their variable clinical manifestations. We report the case of a child treated at the National Centre Hospitalier Albert Royer Children, Dakar. A boy aged 9 years was referred from a health facility in rural areas for the treatment of heart failure. Admission clinical examination showed impaired general condition, global heart failure syndrome and voluminous right warm inguinocrural mass extended to the right abdominal wall (iliac fossa and right flank), with poorly defined limits. Auscultation of this mass showed a thrill and diffuse murmur. Cardiac ultrasound showed severe pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) with extensive impairement of the heart cavities, without cardiac structural involvement. The diagnosis of AVM was confirmed by doppler ultrasound of the mass complemented by angiography scan. They showed multiple arteriovenous fistulas within the mass. The diagnosis of complex stage IV AVM (according to Schöbinger classification) of the root of the right thigh was retained. Clinical treatment of heart failure was based on furosemide, spironolactone and captopril to obtain hemodynamic stabilization before possible surgical procedure. Arteriovenous malformations of the limbs, in particular of the proximal end of the lower limb in children are still largely unknown, hence frequent diagnostic errors and delays. Their evolution is unpredictable requiring early diagnosis and careful monitoring involving multidisciplinary interaction between pediatrics, surgeons and radiologists.
- Retroperitoneoscopic Resection of a Lumbosacral Plexus Schwannoma: Case Report and Literature Review. [Case Reports]J Neurol Surg A Cent Eur Neurosurg 2018; 79(3):262-267JN
- CONCLUSIONS: Retroperitoneoscopy is a minimally invasive technique that offers some potential advantages in approaching retroperitoneal masses. This new classification is useful to group patients and thus provide guidance on the best retroperitoneoscopic surgical strategy.
- Penile melanoma: a 20-Year analysis of six patients at the National Cancer Institute of Peru, Lima. [Case Reports]Ecancermedicalscience 2017; 11:731E
- CONCLUSIONS: Penile melanoma prognosis depends on the initial clinical stage of the disease. The risk of lymphatic involvement seems to be related to the same risk factors used to assess cutaneous melanoma. Clinicians can thus assess penile melanoma using the AJCC staging system. The use of sentinel lymph node biopsy to determine staging is also becoming more common and could replace prophylactic bilateral inguinal dissection.
- Case 219: Pelvic Actinomycosis Mimicking Malignant Tumor. [Case Reports]Radiology 2015; 276(1):304-8R
- A 53-year-old woman presented with a 3-month history of left inguinocrural and lumbar pain and anorexia with weight loss. No fever was reported. The patient had no prior pelvic surgery. Physical examination revealed a palpable nontender mass in the left groin area. There was no bloody or purulent discharge.

A 53-year-old woman presented with a 3-month history of left inguinocrural and lumbar pain and anorexia with weight loss. No fever was reported. The patient had no prior pelvic surgery. Physical examination revealed a palpable nontender mass in the left groin area. There was no bloody or purulent discharge. Laboratory findings revealed inflammation with an increased C-reactive protein level (127 mg/L [1209 nmol/L]), leukocytosis (13 800/mm(3)), and microcytic anemia (hemoglobin level, 7.2 g/dL). Computed tomography (CT), fluorine 18 ((18)F) fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET)/CT, and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging were performed.
- Pemphigus vegetans of the folds (intertriginous areas). [Review]Clin Dermatol 2015 Jul-Aug; 33(4):471-6CD
- Pemphigus vegetans (P Veg), the rarest form of pemphigus, is thought to be a variant of pemphigus vulgaris (PV). Classically, two subtypes of P Veg are recognized: (1) Neumann P Veg, which usually begins as PV with vesicles and bullae that rupture to form hypertrophic granulating erosions, then evolving into vegetating exuding masses; (2) Hallopeau P Veg, initially characterized by pustular lesio…
Pemphigus vegetans (P Veg), the rarest form of pemphigus, is thought to be a variant of pemphigus vulgaris (PV). Classically, two subtypes of P Veg are recognized: (1) Neumann P Veg, which usually begins as PV with vesicles and bullae that rupture to form hypertrophic granulating erosions, then evolving into vegetating exuding masses; (2) Hallopeau P Veg, initially characterized by pustular lesions that, after rupturing, merge and gradually evolve into vegetating erosions with a centrifugal expansion. The disease typically affects the big folds (axillary, inframammary, inguinocrural, intergluteal), where semiocclusion, maceration, and mixed infections continuously incite exudation and granulation tissue formation (wet P Veg). In nonintertriginous locations, the vegetating buttons can dry out to change into warty, fissured, painful, seborrheic keratosis-like lesions (dry P Veg). Histologic examination indicates hyperplastic epidermis with intramalpighian leukocyte microabscesses and indistinct traits of suprabasal acantholysis. Immunofluorescence findings are similar to those of PV. Diagnosis is straightforward when PV lesions coexist. Difficulties can arise in cases with nonflexural location. Cytology (Tzanck test), histology, immunofluorescence, and ELISA search for anti-desmoglein antibodies are the diagnostic laboratory tools. Systemic treatment is similar to that for PV, high-dose steroids being the first choice therapy. Immunosuppressive agents and etretinate may allow a steroid-sparing effect. Topical treatment is aimed at countering the granulation tissue formation by means of several strategies (sublesional steroid injection, application of medicated gauzes in the involved flexures, chemical cautery or surgical excision of vegetating lesions).
- Following the needles: an anatomical study to evaluate the postoperative safety and symptoms of patients receiving a transobturator male sling implant. [Journal Article]J Urol 2014; 192(6):1750-5JU
- CONCLUSIONS: The needle sling implant preserves the obturator neurovascular bundle and obviates the potential for postoperative pelvic hematoma. The anatomical trajectory of the needles used for this implant account for the groin and perineal pain side effects. Based on similarities between the Argus T and other types of outside-in transobturator male slings the results of the current study could be extrapolated to the latter slings.
- Two-stage laparoscopic treatment for strangulated inguinal, femoral and obturator hernias: totally extraperitoneal repair followed by intestinal resection assisted by intraperitoneal laparoscopic exploration. [Case Reports]Hernia 2016; 20(3):483-8H
- CONCLUSIONS: The two-stage laparoscopic treatment is safe for treatment of strangulated inguinal, femoral, and obturator hernias, and complete mesh repair via the TEP method can be performed in elderly patients to minimize the occurrence of mesh infection.

- Development of functionally patent lymphatic meshes in postsurgical long-term resolution of peripheral secondary lymphedema. [Journal Article]J Vasc Surg Venous Lymphat Disord 2013; 1(3):280-8JV
- CONCLUSIONS: Long-term postsurgical recovery from severe secondary lymphedema requires canalizing the lymphatic collectors along their original flow pattern and developing perianastomotic meshes. Because this phenomenon can be observed with the same characteristics in different tissues, such as the spermatic cord and the inguinocrural, inguinoscrotal, inguinotesticular, and brachial regions, the development of meshes seems to reflect a generalized phenomenon of local lymphangiogenesis triggered by the microsurgical procedure.
