Although melanoma frequently metastasizes to the liver, its spontaneous rupture is rare. We report herein an unusual case of a 73-year-old man with rupture of multiple hepatic metastases from scalp melanoma and resulting massive intraperitoneal bleeding, which was successfully controlled by transarterial embolization. © 2010 Japan Radiological Society.

Clinical issue: Minimally invasive treatment of spinal fractures. Standard treatment procedures: Conservative treatment versus spinal surgery. Treatment innovations: Minimally invasive stabilization techniques, such as percutaneous (assisted) cementoplasty have been introduced as new procedures. Diagnostic work-up: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), X‑rays and computed tomography (CT) are the imaging techniques of first choice. The most important questions concern recent fractures, instability and indications for minimally invasive treatment. Performance: Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty are established methods for the treatment of patients with osteoporosis. Achievements: Cementoplasty techniques are promising treatment options for traumatic spinal injuries. Practical recommendations: The application of the techniques should best be carried out in individual cases within the framework of prospective controlled studies. © 2016 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg

The use and the safety of radiographic, MR- or ultrasound contrast media in the diagnostic work-up of pregnant or lactating patients is a frequently discussed question. As only sparse clinical data is available, a careful benefit-risk assessment must contain physico-chemical properties, preclinical data including teratogeneity and embryotoxicity, as well as maternal and foetal exposure. With consideration to the individual risks, iodinated contrast media, macrocyclic MR contrast media with increased stability or sulphur hexafluoride ultrasound contrast media may, if clinically justified, be administered in the smallest possible doses throughout pregnancy. After parental administration of an iodinated contrast medium after the 12th week of pregnancy, the neonates thyroidal function should be checked during the first week after birth. After parental administration of iodinated, stable macrocyclic, gadolinium or ultrasound contrast media, lactation can be continued normally. In any case, contrast media should be used with caution and only if the benefits outweigh the risk. © Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New York.

We have studied five women with genital tuberculosis (TB), which is an uncommon disease in Western European countries. However, young women that have emigrated from a country with high TB-prevalence and have complaints of unexplained infertility and nonspecific abdominal or pelvic symptoms should be checked for this disease. Because genital tuberculosis frequently causes infertility, early diagnosis and treatment are crucial, necessitating rapid microscopic, histological, and microbiological (culture) testing in suspected cases. © 2010 Urban & Vogel.
