Caecal volvulus: A consequence of acute cholecystitis.

Citation: BMJ Case Reports, June 2013, 1757-790X (06 Jun 2013)
Author(s): Anjum G.A.; Jaberansari S.; Habeeb K.

Abstract: Caecal volvulus is an uncommon cause of closed loop intestinal obstruction which can lead to caecal gangrene and high mortality. Delay in diagnosis is one of the causes of this high mortality. Caecal volvulus is reported to be associated with previous abdominal surgery in most cases. We present the first reported case of caecal volvulus following/associated with acute cholecystitis.

An interesting case of screen-detected breast cancer encasing a ventriculoperitoneal shunt was published recently in BMJ Case Reports, 2013, 1757-790X (2013)

Abstract:  A 67-year-old woman was diagnosed with a breast cancer via screening encasing the ventriculoperitoneal shunt. Triple assessment including MRI scan of the breast confirmed the presence of a breast mass and the tubing of the ventriculoperitoneal shunt was running directly through the mass. She underwent wide local excision of the breast cancer as well as rerouting of VP shunt as a joint procedure with the neurosurgery team and recovered uneventfully. This is a very rare and an interesting case and required management involving a different specialty.

Panton-Valentine leukocidin Staphylococcus causing fatal necrotising pneumonia in a young boy 
Shahzad Haider, David Wright
Department of Paediatrics, Macclesfield District General Hospital, Macclesfield, UK
SUMMARY
Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL) toxin producing strains of Staphylococcus aureus are known to cause skin and soft tissue infection. They can also cause necrotising pneumonia in otherwise healthy individuals. Here we report a case of severe, necrotising, haemorrhagic pneumonia in a 12-year-old boy who presented with a four-day history of a sore throat and fever. During his admission he deteriorated and needed full ventilatory support but despite all efforts he died. Postmortem examination lung swabs confirmed the presence of PVL-associated S aureus. There is a need to improve awareness of this disease among medical practitioners as early diagnosis and appropriate management can save lives.
