Dear friends, this case was also provided by my good friend Dr Alberto Villanueva (SURREY AND SUSSEX HEALTHCARE NHS TRUST).
It-s good do get some help from other centers in this time of distress when the activity is basically centered on COVID 19. But, indeed other pathologies are there and will be present and we, as good alert radiologists must look carefully for pertinent findings always.
This is a 57 y/o male patient with known oncologic pathology ( jaw and neck neoplasms) that obliges to periodic examinations. He presents (Nov 2018) with weight loss.

I am back after a short medical leave.
Thanks to my friend Dr Alberto Villanueva (Sussex) I can show you an interesting case to test your skills once more.
17 yr. Fever and sore throat.
Life goes on and I expect that you all are in the best possible shape.
This time we abandon the chest and move downwards to the abdomen.
Good day to everybody. I hope that, wherever you are, you and your close ones are well. We are living hard times that will pass, but meanwhile, and probably more than ever, we need to stick to our lives in every sense, including our Radiology knowledge.
Keep on friends.
This a case from my own collection. Despite time passing there is, as in most cases a teaching to be extracted from it.
57 year old male with fever. He recently had neck surgery.
here is a new case from Hospital Dr Peset archive.
This is a 67 year old man with COPD. He was presented with worsening of his dyspnea, he now needs two pillows to sleep.
I hope you are doing well wherever you are. Here things are not too good but for the moment I am well.
Here is a case just brought from Dr Peset University Hospital in Valencia.
71 year old man who had a syncope and is brought to the Emergency Room. The COVID 19 ARN (RT-PCR) is negative.
On Thursday March 12th, our ESR Connect studio was the epicenter of an important discussion on COVID-19 as we had the privilege to host professor Josef Penninger, world-leading geneticist and immunologist. Prof. Penninger delivered a compelling and important lecture on ACE2 and its role in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The lecture focused on the discovery and importance of angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2). Found in many organs, ACE2 positively affects blood pressure, kidney diseases, liver/lung fibrosis, and many other conditions. ACE creates angiotensin II which triggers angiotensin receptors AT1R and AT2R. This reaction can lead to lung edema and severe respiratory diseases, unless ACE2 is present. ACE2 molecules inactivate the bond between ACE and AngII and prevent the receptors from getting activated, thus protecting the organism from coming to harm. Read more…
we are living dire moments. Our congress in Vienna has been postponed and many of us are subject to severe restrictions in our life, but this will not impede us to continue with our blog, and perhaps help you fill some time if you are isolated.
I would like to send you a case you already know, but with some new features stressed to me by Drs Maldonado and Lorente. Indeed I refer to our very last case (25) the man who had had Lymphoma and an accumulation of fat in the mediastinum: Remember? Read more…
Well, we have arrived to case 25 after a bit more than a year. I hope that some of you have learned something and perhaps enjoyed the “game”. Let us continue…
Some days ago two smart radiology residents at Hospital Universitario Dr. Peset, Edgar Lorente and Alfonso Maldonado, presented me this case that has some interesting features. Read more…
Today’s case shows a 35 year old woman with abdominal pain and weight loss.
