Bilateral abdominopelvic lymphoceles secondary to huge uterine leiomyomas: A case report.

J Obstet Gynaecol Res 2020 Jan 22;46(1):186-189. Epub 2019 Oct 22.

Pelvic lymphocele secondary to uterine leiomyoma has not been previously reported. We report a case of abdominopelvic lymphocele associated with huge uterine fibroids which was managed conservatively. A 39-year-old unmarried lady presented with pressure symptoms in pelvis was diagnosed to have a huge uterine leiomyomas occupying the entire abdomen. Magnetic resonance imaging of pelvis and abdomen demonstrated multiple uterine fibroids. In addition, bilateral cystic structures were seen in the pelvis with extension to the para-colic gutters. During myomectomy, bilateral abdominopelvic lymphoceles were noted which required only fine-needle aspiration. Follow up abdominal ultrasound at 6 weeks, demonstrated spontaneous resolution of these lesions. The pressure exerted by these huge uterine leiomyomas might have possibly obstructed the lymphatic drainage leading to bilateral abdominopelvic lymphoceles. These secondary lymphoceles resolve spontaneously and does not need any further diagnostic procedures or surgical interventions.

Absence of Left Pulmonary Artery: Case report.

Sultan Qaboos Univ Med J 2009 Aug 30;9(2):180-3. Epub 2009 Jun 30.

Agenesis and hypoplasia of left-sided pulmonary artery anomalies have been infrequently reported. The majority of cases are diagnosed in childhood, but occasionally some asymptomatic cases are first recognised in adulthood when detected by an abnormal chest radiograph. We report a twenty-one year old female patient with left pulmonary artery agenesis who was asymptomatic till adulthood, but presented with mild respiratory symptoms and an abnormal chest X-ray. A contrast enhanced computerised tomography (CECT) scan helped to establish the diagnosis. Early diagnosis of this condition is essential to avert potentially lethal complications.

Traumatic Rupture of the Right Hemidiaphragm: Diagnosis aided by Computerized Tomography and Image Reformation: A Case Report.

Sultan Qaboos Univ Med J 2008 Jul;8(2):219-22

Department of Radiology and Molecular Imaging, Sultan Qaboos University & Hospital, Muscat, Sultanate of Oman.

Traumatic rupture of the diaphragm (TRD) poses a challenge to both radiologists and surgeons. They are uncommon and occur following blunt abdominal or lower thoracic trauma. The right side involvement is less common than the left side and is easily missed. Spiral computed tomography (Spiral CT) with image reformation is very useful in the diagnosis of TRD and in identifying associated injuries. Early diagnosis and repair reduces mortality and morbidity. We present the case of a 16 year old boy who was involved in a high speed traffic accident with blunt injury to his thorax and abdomen. He was referred from a peripheral hospital in Oman for further management at Sultan Qaboos University Hospital. A spiral CT scan of thorax and abdomen with image reformation helped in the early diagnosis and management of the traumatic rupture of his right hemidiaphragm.
