Liver cyst infection in kidney transplant patient with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease: Interest of PET/CT in diagnosis and treatment

Published on: 14th December, 2018

OCLC Number/Unique Identifier: 7964794073

Liver cyst infection in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a rare but life-threatening complication. Diagnosis and treatment remain challenging. We report the case of a 64-year-old kidney transplant patient presenting with fever and abdominal pain. The diagnosis of liver cyst infection was made by positron emission tomography scan (PET/CT). Moreover, the course of our patient illustrates the interest of subsequent PET/CT during follow-up as our patient failed on antibiotherapy and required liver cyst drainage.

A Belgian program to fight child maltreatment: The “SOS children” teams

Published on: 8th August, 2019

OCLC Number/Unique Identifier: 8262544479

Child abuse remains a complex issue affecting individuals, families, groups and society, and one which WHO prevalence figures show as a significant ongoing problem. The nature of the abuse, be it physical, sexual, psychological, or neglect, places the child at high risk of experiencing the multiple sequelae of the trauma. Depending on the child’s country, the disclosure of abuse by the child or a third party will either be moved into criminal justice system or directed to the medico-psycho-social sector. In 1985, in Belgium, specialist teams were established to evaluate and support situations involving child abuse. More than thirty years later, we considered it opportune to update the parameters that our team has developed based on four reflexive themes. The first discusses the transformation of our society, families and individuals, exploring how each influences the others. The second theme describes the diagnostic process, holding in mind the complexity of any situation. The third theme describes the reasoning behind these teams, considering this as a de-judicialisation of such situations. Finally, we describe the different treatments available. This paper describes the evolution of clinical practice including developments in several aspects that have arisen through handling situations of abuse.
