Unveiling Cancer.

Sultan Qaboos Univ Med J 2015 Aug 24;15(3):e405-10. Epub 2015 Aug 24.

College of Medicine & Health Sciences, Sultan Qaboos University;

This article narrates a multifaceted educational journey undertaken by a medical student through a weekly SCRAPS (surgery, clinical disciplines, radiology, anatomy, psychiatry and laboratory sciences) clinico-pathological meeting held in the College of Medicine & Health Sciences at Sultan Qaboos University in Muscat, Oman. Through a presentation titled 'Unveiling Cancer', the multidisciplinary and interprofessional audience witnessed a simulated interaction between a medical student, a technologist peer and tutors in medicine, pathology and radiology. The presentation was based on the complexities of presentation, diagnosis and management of a patient with anaplastic large cell lymphoma, a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, in the aftermath of a bone marrow transplantation. After describing the case, the student shared with the audience a spectrum of learning objectives, which included integration in the complex world of contemporary medicine, insight into the triumphs and travails of technology (immunohistochemistry) and peer collaboration, communication and mentorship.

Asymptomatic Ovarian Mucinous Cystadenoma with a Solid Mural Leiomyoma: Case report and brief review.

Sultan Qaboos Univ Med J 2013 Feb 27;13(1):127-31. Epub 2013 Feb 27.

Departments of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Sultan Qaboos University Hospital, Muscat, Oman.

Mucinous neoplasms of the ovary may have associated benign or malignant mural nodules. A leiomyomatous mural nodule is a rare, benign lesion associated with mucinous tumors of the ovary. We report a case of a mural leiomyomatous nodule arising in a benign mucinous cystadenoma in a 29-year-old woman who presented with a large heterogenous abdominal mass. After pre-operative evaluation, exploratory laparotomy was performed upon suspicion of ovarian malignancy. A pathological examination confirmed the benign nature of the mural nodule.

Absence of Left Pulmonary Artery: Case report.

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

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

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.
