A Rare Submandibular Space Foregut Duplication Cyst Mimicking a Lymphatic Malformation in a Child

1. Introduction
A submandibular space (SMS) bronchopulmonary foregut cystic malformation (BPFCM) was mistaken for a lymphatic malformation (LM) and treated unsuccessfully with sclerotherapy. The purpose of this article is to describe the imaging features of this rare SMS BPFCM so that it can be differentiated from LMs and treated appropriately.

Castelman’s Disease Revealed by Cholestatic Jaundice: About a Case with Review of the Literature

1. Summary
Castelman’s disease is a lymphoid proliferation characterized by a wide histological spectrum and a polymorphic clinical picture. It comes in two different forms, localized and multicentric. We report
an observation of Castelman’s disease with a review of the literature in a 31-year-old patient who had consulted for cholestatic jaundice. It was a multicentric form with favorable evolution under corticosteroid therapy. The prognosis is different depending on whether it is a localized or multicentric form of the disease. Management depends on the clinical form involving medical and/or surgical management.

Transcatheter Arterial Embolization of the Common Hepatic Artery For Pseudoaneurysm After a Laparoscopic-Assisted Pancreaticoduodenectomy: A Case Report

1. Abstract
Common hepatic artery (CHA) pseudoaneurysm is a rare and potentially life-threatening complication after pancreaticoduodenectomy, and the possible cause is unclear. We report a case of intraperitoneal hemorrhage after pancreaticoduodenectomy who was discharged after embolization under DSA. We consider that this complication may be related to iatrogenic injury.

Characteristics of Hepatitis B Virus Genotype and Sub-Genotype in Hepatocellular Cancer Patients in Vietnam

1. Abstract
Untreated chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection can lead to chronic liver disease and may progress to cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). HBV infection has been prevalent in Vietnam, but there is little information available on the genotypes, sub-genotypes, and mutations of HBV in patients with HBV-related HCC confirmed by histopathological diagnosis. We studied the molecular characteristics of HBV and its genetic variants in Vietnamese HCC patients after liver tumor resection.

Single Center Analysis of Epidemiology and Outcome of Pancreatitis

1. Introduction
Acute pancreatitis (AP) is one of the most common indications for hospitalization and may potentially lead to fatal outcomes [1]. The clinical presentation often lies on a spectrum of severity from mild abdominal pain to severe shock and multiorgan failure. This variation in presentation often creates obstacles in diagnosis by clinicians and may lead to significant underdiagnosis [2]. These factors integrate to cause considerable variance in mortality and outcomes on a case-to-case basis [3]. Furthermore, there is a wide variety of possible etiologies for acute pancreatitis, which guide both acute management, short- and long-term outcomes, and prevention strategies [4].
