A Rare Cause of Ortner's Syndrome and a Case-Based Review of Literature.

Indian J Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2021 Apr 1:1-4. Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Department of General Medicine, Government Medical College, Kottayam, Kerala, India.

Ortner's syndrome refers to the compression of the recurrent laryngeal nerve by cardiovascular disorders of various etiologies. We describe a rare case of Ortner's syndrome caused by thoracic aorta aneurysm and a brief review of literature on this unusual cause of Ortner's syndrome. Hoarseness of voice due to the compression of recurrent laryngeal nerve by thoracic aorta aneurysm could be a harbinger of aneurysmal rupture.

Thoracic psammomatous spinal meningioma with osseous metaplasia: A very rare case report.

Asian J Neurosurg 2017 Apr-Jun;12(2):270-272

Department of Surgery, Subharti Medical College, Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Thoracic spinal psammomatous meningioma is a rare subtype of meningioma. Among diverse types of mesenchymal differentiation, osseous metaplasia is found to be still rarer. We are presenting a new case of thoracic psammomatous spinal meningioma with osseous metaplasia in a middle aged female which that gives a sense of cancellous bone in the spinal canal. To conclude, meningiomas with osseous metaplasia are very rare tumors that complicate the surgical removal in certain cases. Ossification, if predicted prior to operation with computed tomography reconstruction, makes planning of removal easier. In our case, maintained cerebrospinal fluid spaces despite hard consistency of tumor made its removal easier once cerebrospinal fluid was drained. We have submitted this article because it is very rare and curable pathology and preoperative diagnosis helps in prevention of neurological injury during its excision.

Retrospective analysis of duodenal injuries: a comprehensive overview.

Saudi J Gastroenterol 2011 Mar-Apr;17(2):142-4

Department of Surgery, Subharti Medical College, Meerut, India.

Background/aim: Duodenal injury is an uncommon finding, accounting for about about 3-5% of abdominal trauma, mainly resulting from both penetrating and blunt trauma, and is associated with significant mortality (6-25%) and morbidity (30-60%).

Patients And Methods: Retrospective analysis was performed in terms of presentation, management, morbidity and mortality on 14 patients of duodenal injuries out of a total of 172 patients of abdominal trauma attending Subharti Medical College.

Results: Epigastric pain (100%) along with vomiting (100%) is the usual presentation of duodenal injuries in blunt abdominal trauma, especially to the upper abdomen. Computed tomography (CT) was diagnostic in all cases. Isolated duodenal injury is a rare finding and the second part is mostly affected.

Conclusion: Duodenal injury should always be suspected in blunt upper abdominal trauma, especially in those presenting with epigastric pain and vomiting. Investigation by CT and early surgical intervention in these patients are valuable tools to reduce the morbidity and mortality.

True vestigeal tail with lumbosacral meningomyelocoel: a rare case report.

Br J Neurosurg 2010 Oct;24(5):597-9

Department of Surgery, Subharti Medical College, Meerut, India.

A human tail is a rare congenital anomaly with a prominent lesion from the lumbosacro-coccygeal region. It is usually classified either as a true tail or as a pseudo-tail. All the lumbosacro-coccygeal protrusions without the evidence of mesenchymal tissue are classified as pseudo-tail. The association of this rare vestigial entity along with meningomyelocele is rarer still.
