A right atrial myxoma presenting with misleading features of acalculous cholecystitis.

Oxf Med Case Reports 2020 Feb 28;2020(2):omaa012. Epub 2020 Feb 28.

Third Department of Internal Medicine, Evaggelismos General Hospital, Athens, Greece.

Diffuse thickening, a layered appearance of the gallbladder wall and the accumulation of surrounding fluid are considered as sensitive and relatively specific imaging findings of gallbladder inflammation. In the absence of gallstones, the diagnosis of acalculous cholecystitis can be further supported by the presence of fever, epigastric pain, right upper abdominal quadrant (RUQ) tenderness on inspiration and elevated markers of inflammation. In this report, we describe a 35-year-old schoolteacher who presented with all of the above clinical, laboratory and imaging findings that were eventually attributed to gallbladder oedema and liver congestion (abdominal imaging and RUQ tenderness) caused by an atrial myxoma interfering, with the atrioventricular circulation of the right heart and causing constitutional manifestations (fever and elevated markers of inflammation).

Department of Interventional Radiology, Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University St. Louis School of Medicine, St Louis, MO.

The morbidity and mortality of cholecystectomy can increase to 10% in high surgical risk patients. The technique for percutaneous cholecystolithotomy consists of 3 steps: (1) percutaneous cholecystostomy, (2) tract dilation and cholecystolithotomy, and (3) tract evaluation and catheter removal. Cholecystoscopy is critical in guiding the lithotripsy probe for fragmentation of large stones and is useful for locating small stone fragments not seen in cholangiography. Read More

Percutaneous cholecystostomy as treatment for acute cholecystitis: What has happened over the last five years? A literature review.

Rev Gastroenterol Mex 2019 Oct - Dec;84(4):482-491. Epub 2019 Sep 11.

Departamento de Cirugía, Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Médicas y Nutrición Salvador Zubirán, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Ciudad de México, México. Electronic address:

Acute cholecystitis is one of the most frequent diseases faced by the general surgeon. In recent decades, different prognostic factors have been observed, and effective treatments described, to improve the results in patients with said pathology (lower morbidity and mortality, shorter hospital stay, and minimum conversion of laparoscopic to open procedures). In general, laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the standard treatment for acute cholecystitis, but it is not exempt from complications, especially in patients with numerous comorbidities or those that are critically ill.

General Surgery Department, Colțea Clinical Hospital, Bucharest, Romania; Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest, Romania.

Gallbladder inflammation is most often determined by the presence of gallstones. Acalculous cholecystitis usually occurs in patients with multiple comorbidities or with an immunosuppressed status, and therefore its evolution is faster and more severe compared to acute calculous cholecystitis. The presence of a fish bone into the peritoneal cavity, through a gastrointestinal fistula is not very rare, but acute cholecystitis caused by a fish bone is unexpected. Read More

Severe Persistent Hyponatremia: A Rare Presentation of Biliary Fluid Loss.

J Investig Med High Impact Case Rep 2019 Jan-Dec;7:2324709619869379

3 Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital, Sayre, PA, USA.

Hypotonic hyponatremia is caused by a serum sodium level of <135 mEq/L in the setting of excess solute loss accompanied by free water retention because of antidiuretic hormone release, subsequent to decreased effective arterial blood volume. Acute hyponatremia can have various neurological manifestations, including drowsiness, lethargy, coma, seizures, respiratory depression, and even death. In this article, we present a case of a 41-year-old man who presented with hyponatremia as a result of sodium containing biliary fluid loss and resultant renal free water retention in response to increased antidiuretic hormone secretion.

Acute Reactive Acalculous Cholecystitis Secondary to Duodenal Ulcer Perforation.

Cureus 2019 Mar 27;11(3):e4331. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Internal Medicine, East Tennessee State University, Johnson City, USA.

Acute cholecystitis is the inflammation of the gallbladder, classically caused by gall stones obstructing the cystic duct. In contrast, acalculous cholecystitis is a gallbladder inflammation occurring in the absence of cholelithiasis with a reported prevalence of 10% of all cases of acute cholecystitis. Reactive acalculous cholecystitis is an extremely rare subset of this disease that results from an adjacent inflammatory or infectious intra-abdominal process that may lead to gallbladder stasis, ischemia, and subsequent wall inflammation.
