Mittal K, Koticha R, Dey AK, Anandpara K, Agrawal R, Sarvothaman MP, Thakkar H - Pol J Radiol (2015)

Bottom Line: The patient had no significant medical and surgical history.This article illustrates and emphasizes that diagnosis of s-OHSS and its etiology can be completely evaluated radiologically.Biochemical markers will confirm the radiological diagnosis.

ABSTRACT

Background: The role of radiology is of utmost importance not only in diagnosing s-OHSS but also in ruling out other cystic ovarian diseases and to determine the underlying etiology and course of the disease. We presented a radiological algorithm for diagnosing the various causes of s-OHSS.

Case report: A 26-year-old female, gravida one was referred to radiology department with history of lower abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting since 2 days which was gradual in onset and progression. The patient had no significant medical and surgical history.

Conclusions: This article illustrates and emphasizes that diagnosis of s-OHSS and its etiology can be completely evaluated radiologically. Biochemical markers will confirm the radiological diagnosis.

f8-poljradiol-80-217: A 12-year-old female with mediastinal choriocarcinoma. CT axial plain and contrast-enhanced images show hypodense lesions occupying the right hemithorax causing a mediastinal shift to the left and showing heterogeneous post-contrast enhancement.

Mentions: A 12-year-old female came to our hospital with complaints of dyspnea and severe abdominal pain. The patient was a biopsy-proven diagnosed case of extragonadal choriocarcinoma of the mediastinum on chemotherapy. Chest CT revealed a large heterogeneously enhancing mass occupying the right hemithorax causing invasion of the diaphragm and the right side of the liver (Figures 8 and 9). On examination, she was tachypneic with tachycardia and tender abdomen. A clinical diagnosis of tumor lysis syndrome or disseminated metastasis was made.
