Cystic pulmonary airway malformation, or Craig's disease, is a rare congenital abnormality of lung development. Medical imaging, particularly Doppler ultrasound, is currently one of the recommended methods for prenatal diagnosis and for the monitoring of this condition. We report three cases of Craig's disease diagnosed at ultrasound: one at 26 weeks of amenorrhea and two others at 30 weeks of amenorrhea. We discuss according to the literature the main ultrasound aspects and specify the place of other radiographic explorations during the monitoring of this condition. © The Author(s) 2015. Source

Cervical cancer is the most common and the leading cause of women death in developing countries. Purpose: To specify the epidemiological and pathological characteristics of cervical cancers in Ivory Coast. Material and methods: This was a retrospective and descriptive study on the cervical cancers histologically confirmed and identified from the registers for recording laboratory of pathological anatomy of Abidjan teaching hospital. The study period was 24 years (January 1984 to December 2007). The parameters analyzed were: frequency, age, sociodemographic status, macroscopic and histological aspects and the prognosis. Results: The cervical cancer represented 78.78% (2064 cases) of gynecological cancers, 42.71% of woman cancer and 17.41% of all cancers. The average age was 48.36 years ranging from 2 to 88 years and a peak incidence between 45-54 years (29%). Multiparity was observed 57.04% (n = 231) and the low socioeconomic level was predominant (70.41%). Concerning pathological examination, the tumor lesions were predominantly budding (51.52%). Squamous cell carcinomas (92.88%) were the most frequent of histological types with 95.1% (n = 1823) of invasive carcinomas. The average age of patients with squamous cell carcinoma was 49 years with 41.5 years for intraepithelial carcinomas and 46.8 years for invasive carcinomas. At the prognosis, squamous cell carcinomas were diagnosed most often in stage pT2 (57.41%) and with extra-cervical represented 66.4% (n = 519). Conclusion: Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in Ivory Coast taking into account male and female together. Its poor prognosis associated with late diagnosis should encourage the establishment of a cytology screening program. © 2012 Lifescience Global. Source

Journal of Pediatric Surgery Case Reports
The Authors report two cases of cutaneous hamartoma appearing as a well-circumscribed tumor of the right axillary region diagnosed in neonatal period. Patients were respectively female and male. The radiological exploration carried out showed the anomaly as heterogenous mass with fluid-filled cystic pockets. The histological diagnosis was carried out by submitting surgical specimens to pathological anatomy examination. The treatment consisted in undertaking a surgical resection in the first case. In the second case, punctures were carried out in order to empty an important accumulation of fluid-filled cystic pockets. Following the operation, the residual mass was fistulized which permitted a discharge of superinfected sebaceous liquid in the first case and the disappearance of the mass with relapse in the second patient. Cutaneous hamartoma is a rare benign tumor of histological diagnosis. Clinical and histological forms are varied: verrucous epidermal (the most frequent), sebaceous, verruco-sebaceous, achromic, pilar, and Becker's nevus. Opinions remain divided as related to therapeutic choices available, namely, abstention with spontaneous regression, surgical resection and CO2 laser destruction. © 2014 The Authors.
