Hydatid Cyst of the Spine: A Rare Case Report and Review of Literature.

J Orthop Case Rep 2020 May-Jun;10(3):57-59

Department of Spine Services, Indian Spinal Injuries Centre, Delhi, India.

Introduction: Hydatid disease is caused by the parasite Echinococcus granulosus which is also known as the dog tapeworm. This disease is a relatively uncommon cause of spinal cord and dural compression.

Case Report: We came across a peculiar case in a 41-year-old male patient who presented to us with pus discharge from a surgical wound over lower back for 10 days. The patient was a diagnosed as a case of lumbar canal stenosis with recurrent hydatid cyst. The patient had neurological involvement in the form of left-sided foot drop. The patient gave a history of lumbar canal stenosis secondary to hydatid cyst, for which decompression and cyst excision were done 3 years prior. The patient was re-operated in the form of wound debridement with removal of hydatid cyst.

Conclusion: Meticulous surgery avoiding spillage of cyst material, appropriate medication as advised by the infectious disease specialist, will avoid recurrence of the disease.

The unilateral glenohumeral dislocation is the most commonly encountered dislocation in our practices but the simultaneous bilateral dislocation is very rarely seen entity. It almost always occurs posteriorly. While simultaneous bilateral anterior dislocations present even very rare. We report a case of 70-years-old male who visited to our emergency complex due to trauma after he fell into the bathroom in a drunk state. Patient complains of pain and deformity of both glenohumeral joints. Clinical and radiological findings revealed bilateral anterior glenohumeral joint dislocation. Close reduction under general anaesthesia was done and both shoulders were immobilized using shoulder immobilizer.

Intradural Disc Herniation in the Lumbar Spine: A Case Report.

JNMA J Nepal Med Assoc 2020 May 30;58(225):345-348. Epub 2020 May 30.

Department of Orthopedics, Seth Gordhandas Sunderdas Medical College and King Edward Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, India.

Intradural disc herniation is a rare presentation of a common pathology, comprising around 0.28-0.3% of all disc herniations. It occurs when disc material related to an intervertebral disc penetrates the spinal dura and lies in an intradural extramedullary location. A 60 years old male patient presented with complaints of low back pain and right lower limb radiculopathy of 2 weeks duration. Neurological examination revealed the weakness of extensor hallucis longus and ankle dorsiflexion with diminished sensation corresponding to fourth and fifth lumbar (L4-L5) dermatome on the right side. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a large sequestered fragment with intradural extensions and posterior longitudinal ligament tear. Intradural nerve root showed significant displacement with severe central canal and right lateral recess stenosis. Discectomy was performed along with the removal of the intradural extension. The postoperative course was uneventful.
