1/3. Radiological reasoning: incidentally discovered liver mass.

    OBJECTIVE: A 49-year-old woman presented to the emergency department after a fall in which she sustained a right subcapital hip fracture. During her hospital stay she developed abdominal pain, and a hypoechoic liver mass was found on sonography. Multiphase CT showed a hepatic mass with brisk arterial phase enhancement, rapid washout on the portal venous phase, and delayed phase hypodensity. The final pathology diagnosis was hepatocellular carcinoma. CONCLUSION: Incidental lesions are frequently discovered during routine radiographic evaluations. Correlation with clinical history and additional confirmatory imaging is essential for appropriate diagnosis and management.

2/3. A rare presentation of systemic salmonellosis.

    We are reporting an unusual case of disseminated salmonella enteritidis D, phage group E2 infection in an 18-year-old male, which was resistant to massive antibiotic treatment. Rare complications such as pylephlebitis, mediastinal adenopathy, osteomyelitis with pathological clavicular fracture, osteitis and spondylitis were observed. We found an immunological defect that no doubt contributed to this severe illness.
