    CT and MRI features in adult patients with orbital subperiosteal abscess secondary to paranasal sinus mucocele.
    Ear Nose Throat J 2017 Jul;96(7):E1-E6
    Department of Radiology, Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang 110004, China.
    Orbital subperiosteal abscess (OSPA) secondary to paranasal sinus mucocele (PSM) is rare, and it may be misdiagnosed as PSM with orbital invasion or even as a malignant neoplasm. The present study explored the computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of OSPA. The cases of 13 patients with OSPA secondary to PSM were retrospectively reviewed.

    Fronto-orbital mucocele with intracranial extension: a case report.
    J Surg Case Rep 2017 Jun 14;2017(6):rjx107. Epub 2017 Jun 14.
    Department of Neurosurgery, Anthea Hospital, Bari, Italy.
    Frontal sinus mucoceles are benign, pseudocystic lesion deriving from the obliteration of the sinus ostium, resulting in a continuous mucous accumulation. The growing process of a mucocele leads to a progressive enlargement of the sinus cavity, thickening and eroding its bony walls up to invading the surrounding tissues. The surgical procedure through an endoscopic endonasal approach is the current treatment option for such conditions, but in cases with an extensive bone erosion and intracranial or intraorbital extension, a transcranial approach should be preferred.

    Minimally invasive appendectomy for resection of appendiceal mucocele: Case series and review of the literature.
    Int J Surg Case Rep 2017 May 29;37:13-16. Epub 2017 May 29.
    Department of Gastrointestinal Oncology, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute, Tampa, FL, 33612, USA. Electronic address:
    Introduction: Appendiceal mucoceles encompass neoplastic and non-neoplastic causes of a distended Appendix filled with mucus. Appendectomy is recommended when an appendiceal mucocele is identified, incidentally or otherwise, in the event it is secondary to a malignancy. For an intact mucocele, it is critically important to avoid rupturing the mucocele during resection, as rupture of a neoplastic mucocele can result in pseudomyxoma peritonei, or mucin deposits in the peritoneum, which is associated with long-term morbidity and mortality.

    Neoplasms of the Appendix: Pictorial Review with Clinical and Pathologic Correlation.
    Radiographics 2017 Jul-Aug;37(4):1059-1083. Epub 2017 Jun 9.
    From the Departments of Radiology (L.M.L., M.K.P.) and Pathology (J.P.), Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, 757 Westwood Plaza, Suite 1638, Los Angeles, CA 90095; and Department of Radiology, Olive View-UCLA Medical Center, Sylmar, Calif (L.M.L., A.P., M.K.P., M.J.N., C.M.J.).
    Appendiceal neoplasms are uncommon tumors of the gastrointestinal tract that may manifest with symptoms of appendicitis, right lower quadrant pain, or palpable mass, leading to imaging or surgical intervention. The majority of appendiceal masses consist of primary epithelial neoplasms and neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Epithelial neoplasms-mucinous and nonmucinous types-are more often detected at imaging than NETs due to their larger size and propensity for peritoneal spread and metastatic disease. Read More

    Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul National University Hospital, 101 Daehak-Ro, Jongno-Gu, Seoul, 03080, Republic of Korea.
    Vallecular cysts are formed when the duct of a mucous gland or lingual tonsillar crypt is dilated owing to obstruction from inflammation, irritation, or trauma. Small cysts are usually asymptomatic; however, cyst growth results in dysphagia, odynophagia, and acute airway complications. As complete transoral laser excision of a vallecular cyst often results in cyst resolution and improved symptoms, proper diagnosis and management of vallecular lesions are important. Read More

Decreased bile flow, decreased gallbladder motility, and altered absorption of water from the gallbladder lumen are predisposing factors to biliary sludge. However, it is more likely to be a small part of a complex disease process involving inflammation of the gallbladder wall and changes to the lining of the gallbladder changing the consistency of its secretions.
