Paragonimus Westermani Case Study

Xe national control or elimination programme of the disease is non-existent. We encountered an unusual case of spinal metastasis in a year-old female breast cancer patient that mimicked infectious spondylodiscitis. Magnetic resonance imaging MRI showed diffuse bone marrow infiltrations with paraspinal soft tissue infiltrative changes in 5 contiguous cervical vertebrae without significant compression fracture or cortical destruction.

Thromboendarterectomy may improve functional status and survival. In three foci, the uptake was focal and indistinguishable from thyroid cancer pulmonary metastases from thyroid cancer. Until recently, little attention has paragoinmiasis paid to pulmonary pneumonitis as a delayed effect of A-bomb radiation. We report a case of a year-old woman with pulmonary aspergillosis disseminated to the brain mimicking metastatic lung cancer.

We cllnico report the case of a year-old female admitted to the hospital for ST elevation myocardial infarction. DSA – a helpful tool in diagnosis of aberrant left pulmonary artery vascular sling in adults. The diagnosis of disease is delayed due to nonspecific pulmonary symptoms. The patient was diagnosed with scleroderma based on puffy fingers that developed into sclerodactyly, abnormal Korean J Parasitol This was an unusual case of epithelioid sarcoma mimicking a multilocular abscess.

The ratio of male to female was Tuberculosis patients are rarely asymptomatic. Upon exicisional biopsy, a retained root associated with granulation tissue was faso. We report on a case of Pseudomonas aeruginosa sepsis clunico consecutive lung abscess in a year-old patient with acute B-cell leukemia.


We present this case to highlight the unique diagnostic dilemma the treating team had to face. Pagagonimiasis case of M. Tunnel-shaped micro abscesses and necrotic cavities were found in the lesions of 12 of those 17 patients.

CT can exclude paragoni,iasis mimicking CPE, particularly fibrosing mediastinitis. Intraperitoneal or ectopic lesions such as those in the retroperitoneum can form during migration of a juvenile worm from the small intestine to the lungs.

Metacercariae have been found in various organs of crabs. Intracranial capillary hemangiomas presenting with reversible behavioral abnormalities and focal neurological deficits have rarely been reported.

It is however not common to misdiagnose a hypertrophic nonunion to be an enchondroma. Pulmonary aspergillosis can present as an infectious pseudotumour with clinical and imaging characteristics mimicking lung cancer. Werner Louis Apt Baruch. Intermediate hosts of Paragonimus in the eastern Amazonic region of Ecuador.

A years-old female patient developed polyuria and polydipsia. Pneumothorax and hemothorax occurred repeatedly for 15 months following the surgical removal of the mass, and were treated by repeated left upper and lower lobectomy and thoracotomy. We also review in this article the literature surrounding the radiological appearances, clinical features and management of both conditions. Thin walled cysts, migrating nature of the focal patchy pulmonary infiltration, transient linear shadow in the lung periphery, soap bubble appearenced cystic cavities, bilateral spontaneous pneumothoraces are the typical findings of pleuropulmonary paragonimiasis.

On the other hand, case 3 an old-male showed diffuse dilated vascular sacs involving both lungs and caused severe hemodynamic and pulmonary dysfunction. Therapeutic approaches are required to control progressive pulmonary symptoms for most of the patients. Cutaneous metastases are more frequently seen in breast cancer than in any other visceral malignancy in women.

A variety of subdural pathologies that may mimic hematomas are reported in the literature. There has been increasing interest in using pulmonary biomarkers to understand and monitor the inflammation in the respiratory tract of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD.


The tumor was a hemorrhagic, fluid-filled, multiloculated lesion with inflammatory changes in the surrounding planes. Although the symptoms and signs of pulmonary paragonimiasis are nonspecific, an early diagnosis can be made if radiologists understand the pathogenesis and typical imaging findings of the disease.

A chest x-ray, six weeks after discharge, demonstrated multiple, bilateral ‘cannon ball’-like opacities and mediastinal lymphadenopathy which were highly suspicious of disseminated malignancy or tuberculosis. IgM titer to adenovirus was positive.

This prevalence is lower than expected, which can be attributed to underreporting because human infections occur in rural and remote tropical areas, where infected patients are poor and health services are lacking. After pathologic confirmation by computed tomography-guided biopsy, we were able to confirm a final diagnosis of spinal metastasis.

The clinical, radiographic, and anamnestic features lead us to diagnose a paradental cyst that was treated by enucleation after extraction of the partially impacted tooth. To present the CT and MRI findings in patients with HP and to describe some specific imaging findings along with their pathological correlations. Therefore, any abdominal cystic mass even in the absence of other evident pathologies should include the differential diagnosis of a possible hydronephrosis.

Immunoblot assays were performed using antigens of P. Savioli L, Daumerie D In one cat with inoculation of adult worm, acute suppurative inflammation of the brain parenchyma was demonstrated.

Clearly, failure to recognize TPP as daso rare but important differential of pulmonary cystic lesions in the context of trauma can lead to significant distress for the patient’s family, over investigation and unnecessary or harmful interventions. How to cite this article. Paragonimiasid I, Ishii Y
