Benign multicystic mesothelioma arising from the tunica vaginalis.

J Surg Case Rep 2019 Jan 24;2019(1):rjy361. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Department of Histopathology, PathLinks, Lincoln County Hospital, Greetwell Road, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, UK.

Benign multicystic mesothelioma is an extremely rare neoplasm usually arising from the visceral mesothelium of the peritoneal cavity typically presenting in young to middle-aged women. It has been deemed an indolent tumour with a possible heritable nature, but also a possible reactive neoplasm secondary to trauma. Diagnosis relies on identifying characteristic histology of cysts separated by loose connective tissue stroma and lined by pale, flat or cuboidal mesothelial cells. Read More

Encysted hydrocele of the canal of Nuck in an 11-month-old child with a past history of duodenal atresia and Arnold-Chiari malformation: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Jan;98(4):e14232

College of Medicine, Qatar University, Doha, Qatar.

Rationale: Hydrocele of the canal of Nuck is a rare developmental disorder and represents of a homolog of hydrocele of spermatic cord in males. Hydrocele of the canal of Nuck is a very rare cause of inguinal swelling in female infants and children. It results from the failure of obliteration of the distal portion of evaginated parietal peritoneum within the inguinal canal, which forms a sac containing fluid. Read More

Worldwide approximately 68 million people are infected with lymphatic filariasis (Lf), provoked by Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi and Brugia timori. This disease can lead to massive swelling of the limbs (elephantiasis) and disfigurement of the male genitalia (hydrocele). Filarial induced immune regulation is characterised by dominant type 2 helper T cell and regulatory immune responses. Read More

Am J Trop Med Hyg 2019 Feb;100(2):344-350

Centre for Infection Medicine, Institute of Immunology, Freie Universität Berlin, Berlin, Germany.

Lymphatic filariasis (LF) is a parasitic infection, caused by three closely related nematodes, namely , , and . Previously, we have shown that lysate from microfilariae induces the expression of interleukin and programmed death-ligand on monocytes, which lead to inhibition of CD4 T-cell responses. In this study, we investigated associations of and programmed cell death pathway gene polymorphisms with clinical manifestation in LF. Read More

College of Medicine & Dentistry, Division of Tropical Health and Medicine, James Cook University, Cairns, Queensland, Australia.

Lymphatic filariasis is widely endemic in Myanmar. Despite the establishment of an elimination program in 2000, knowledge of the remaining burden of disease relies predominantly on programmatic information. To assist the program, we conducted an independent cross-sectional household cluster survey to determine the prevalence of filariasis infection, morbidity and mass-drug administration coverage in four townships of the Mandalay Region: Amarapura, Patheingyi, Tada-U and Wundwin.

Hydrocelectomy via scrotal incision is a valuable alternative to the traditional inguinal approach for hydrocele treatment in boys.

Investig Clin Urol 2018 Nov 24;59(6):416-421. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Department of Urology, Chonnam National University Medical School, Gwangju, Korea.

Purpose: Few studies have explored the treatment of isolated communicating hydroceles via scrotal incision. We prospectively evaluated the surgical outcomes of such treatment in boys with hydroceles compared with that using traditional, inguinal incision hydrocelectomy.

Materials And Methods: Of 347 boys aged 0-12 years who were diagnosed as hydrocele on ultrasonography, 173 boys were assigned to the scrotal incision hydrocelectomy group (group I, n=173) and 172 boys were assigned to the traditional inguinal incision hydrocelectomy group (group II, n=172), and finally 156 boys in group I and 156 boys in group II were included in this study.

Single-Site Laparoscopic Percutaneous Extraperitoneal Closure Versus Modified Transumbilical Two-Port Laparoscopic Suturing of the Hernia Sac for the Treatment of Pediatric Inguinal Hernia: Comparison of the Outcomes of Two Different Approaches.

J Laparoendosc Adv Surg Tech A 2019 Jan 14;29(1):103-108. Epub 2018 Sep 14.

1 Department of Pediatric Surgery, Ningbo Women and Children's Hospital, Ningbo, China.

Objective: To evaluate the surgical outcomes of single-site laparoscopic percutaneous extraperitoneal closure (SLPEC) and modified transumbilical two-port laparoscopic suturing (M-TTLS) of the hernia sac for the treatment of pediatric inguinal hernia (PIH) and determine whether one approach was superior to another.

Methods: From January 2014 to June 2017, a total of 599 children had undergone SLPEC or M-TTLS in our department. SLPEC and M-TTLS were the most frequently performed single-site laparoscopic procedures for PIH in our department, which represented the extraperitoneal and intraperitoneal approaches, respectively.
