Introduction: Filariasis is a major health hazard around the globe causing 120–129 million cases in over 72 countries. Cases with breast as primary site for the parasite are uncommon and have been reported in females. Here we present a case of a male patient with filariasis of breast which is extremely rare. Case report: A 55-year-old male presented to the outpatient department with a mildly painful swelling in his left breast in sub areolar region. The smears from the aspirate showed cystic and phagocytic macrophages, few microfilaria forms and few fibro-fatty fragments in haemorrhagic background. Conclusion: Filariasis of the breast is an uncommon condition and can cause a diagnostic dilemma at times. Hence a high index of suspicion especially in patients from endemic areas is required.
Inguinal bladder hernia is a relatively rare, predominantly male condition. The diagnosis is often made by inguinal swelling in a patient over the age of 50 with inguinal swelling associated with disorders of the lower urinary tract in men (LUTS). The diagnosis is confirmed using several medical imaging modalities (UCR, ultrasound, Uro-CT). We report the cases of 3 patients in whom an inguinal hernia of the bladder was suggested on the basis of a clinical suspicion and confirmed by performing a uroscanner. Two patients underwent surgical reduction of the hernia and in one of the patients a prostatic adenomectomy was also done. There were no associated post-operative complications.
Spontaneous splenic rupture is a rare life-threatening condition, it’s occurrence with no history of underlying splenic disease makes it even extremely rare. We report a case of a 26 year-old male who presented with acute left sided abdominal pain with no history of trauma; a CT scan was performed individualizing an abundant intra peritoneal free fluid associated with multiples splenic lacerations and hematomas. Conservative management was carried with a good evolution.
