This time I have had a minor medical problem, and have asked one of my former colleagues, a young radiologist from Hospital Universitario Dr. Peset, in Valencia to help me. Dr José Vizuete is a splendid radiologist, and one of his areas of domain is the abdomen. (He was co-author of our case 3, a case of ganglioneuroblastoma).
So, we will leave the thorax this time and visit our neighbour the abdomen.
This is a 33-year-old man with abdominal pain. Here is an abdominal CT and an MRI.
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.
Muppet gratefully acknowledges the contribution of his good friend Dr. Manel Escobar who discovered and diagnosed the following case:
An 11-year-old girl with migrating bone pain for the last year, with normal radiographs, now presents with one month of low-degree fever. Chest and abdominal CT were unremarkable, except for the pelvic findings.
1. Fibrous dysplasia
2. Langerhans cell histiocytosis
4. None of the above
