Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome (FHCS) is a rare complication of pelvic inflammatory disease and its MRI findings remain poorly described. A 34-year-old woman was raced to our hospital with slight fever and severe right upper quadrant pain.

Fitz-Hugh-Curtis Syndrome Secondary to Postpartum Endometritis: Case Report and Literature Review.

Gynecol Minim Invasive Ther 2021 Jul-Sep;10(3):184-186. Epub 2021 Aug 3.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Palermo, Palermo, Italy.

We report a case of Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome (FHCS) 1 week after an urgent cesarean section. Although its onset in the postpartum period is poorly reported in the literature, we suggest that FHCS can complicate puerperal endometritis; therefore, it should be consider in differential diagnosis in puerpera with right upper quadrant pain. Again, it can be useful to perform a contrast computed tomography that allows early diagnosis and conservative treatment. Read More

Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, The Children's Hospital at Montefiore, Bronx, NY, United States of America.

Background: The diagnosis of Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome (FHC) is often missed or delayed in patients with right upper quadrant pain (RUQ).

Objective: To develop a decision rule that predicts FHC in females with RUQ pain based on a constellation of historical features, physical examination findings and laboratory results.

Methods: We conducted a prospective study to test the utility of our FHC decision rule in sexually active females, aged 13-20 years, with RUQ pain who were seen in an urban ED over 57 months. Read More

MicroRNA Interference in Hepatic Host-Pathogen Interactions.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 Mar 30;22(7). Epub 2021 Mar 30.

Department of Gastroenterology and Neurology, Kagawa University School of Medicine, Kagawa 761-0793, Japan.

The liver is well recognized as a non-immunological visceral organ that is involved in various metabolic activities, nutrient storage, and detoxification. Recently, many studies have demonstrated that resident immune cells in the liver drive various immunological reactions by means of several molecular modulators. Understanding the mechanistic details of interactions between hepatic host immune cells, including Kupffer cells and lymphocytes, and various hepatic pathogens, especially viruses, bacteria, and parasites, is necessary.

MR Imaging of the Perihepatic Space.

Korean J Radiol 2021 04 19;22(4):547-558. Epub 2020 Nov 19.

Department of Radiology, Centre Hospitalo-Universitaire de Reims, Reims, France.

The perihepatic space is frequently involved in a spectrum of diseases, including intrahepatic lesions extending to the liver capsule and disease conditions involving adjacent organs extending to the perihepatic space or spreading thanks to the communication from intraperitoneal or extraperitoneal sites through the hepatic ligaments. Lesions resulting from the dissemination of peritoneal processes may also affect the perihepatic space. Here we discuss how to assess the perihepatic origin of a lesion and describe the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of normal structures and fluids that may be abnormally located in the perihepatic space.

Except for isolated cases reported in childhood, this disease is more frequently encountered in the elderly, especially in women. Therefore, most cases in the literature describe the clinical and radiographic features of gallbladder volvulus in this age group. Read More
