US 3=



US 4: color Doppler  hypovascular.





Mammo Xray  =  very dense breast (MM1, 2).



MRI with gado=  breast are filling by  hyperintense mass  with gado enhancement.

CASE 390: PEDUNCULATED HCC, Dr PHAN THANH HẢI, MEDIC MEDICAL CENTER, HCMC, VIETNAM




MAN 56 YO REPORTED  HIS RUQ  SWOLLEN  SLOWLY FOR  6 MONTHS , NO DISTURB GI TRACK IN DIGESTION.
ULTRASOUND ABDOMEN:
US 1:ECHOGENEICITY OF LIVER  AND TUMOR  NEARBY  ARE DIFFERENT.


US 2:LONGITUDINAL SCAN,TUMOR AND LIVER BORDER ARE NOT CLEAR.


US 3: STRUCTURE OF THIS TUMOR IS SOLID, HYPOVASCULAR.


US 4: CROSS SECTION, TUMOR IS INTRA ABDOMEN, AT RIGHT  SITE OF AORTA.


MSCT WITH CE:
CT 1( 4 PICTURES): SAGITTAL VIEW, FRONTAL VIEW ,  CROSS-SECTION SHOWED VASCULAR SUPPLY OF THIS TUMOR IS FROM LIVER.


CT1:TUMOR IS  RELATED WITH  R/LIVER,   PEDUNCULATED, VASCULAR SUPPLY FROM LIVER.


CT2:MULTINODULAR, CONTRAST ENHANCE IS  IN BORDER OF TUMOR.


LAB BLOOD TESTS  =  HBV POSITIVE, AFP=651.8 ng/mL.

Operation  laparotomy  detected huge tumor connected with right liver border by
small area.


Microscopic report  is  undiffentiated  HCC 


( P-HCC; PEDUNCULATED HCC or  HANGING HCC..)

CASE 389: ECTOPIC APPENDICITIS, Dr PHAN THANH HẢI, MEDIC MEDICAL CENTER, HCMC, VIETNAM


Man 35yo, onset  epigastric pain  treated  as gastritis for one week, fever.
Ultrasound of   abdomen= pain  at  upper  left  abdomen quadrant (US 1  probe put over  pain point).


US  2= mass  rounding as  an abscess, CDI: no  more vascular  supply.
US 3 (with linear probe)  intra abscess the linear structure  look like  appendix).
US 4 =  cross section.





Emergency CT with CE=   mass  wall-off  by  small intestine and  great omentum  as an abscess  ( CT1, CT2).



Blood test  WBS = high 14k , with neutro 9.9,  CRP  38.3ng/dl.
Preoperative diagnostic is  intra abdomen abscess  due to ectopic appendicitis.
Laparoscopic view = the pus goes out  from this mass  and open operation removed appendiceal partial necrosis and  mobile coecum.

and very hard  in elastography ( US 4).


MRI  reported  a cystic tumor with calcification with  size of 1 cm.





All  AFP, HCG, testosterone  or  corticoid of blood tests  are negative.

CASE 387: LIVER ABSCESS DUE TO FISHBONE, Dr PHAN THANH HẢI, MEDIC MEDICAL CENTER, HCMC, VIETNAM



Man 52 yo with pain  in liver and history of treated  liver abscess by ultrasound  guided puncture and drainage for 1 month..
Ultrasound  scan at liner=


 US 1:detected  liver  abscess  in recovery phase with one  echo rich  body  in the boder of liver came from duodenum.


US 2: CDI  no change of  vascular structure of liver.


US 3 : elastoscan  showed  this body had  very red code whicn means  very hard.
CT liver  scanning  also detected  foreign body ( fb) intra liver and one site was intra duodenum wall.



Emergency  endoscopy  cannot detect  this fb.
Laparoscopy  removed the fish bone  with 3.5 cm length (  foto)


Conclusion: liver abscess  due to  fishbone  migrated from duodenum to liver.
