A patient with a continuous murmur due to flow through an internal mammary-to-pulmonary artery fistula is described. Previously reported cases have been thought to be congenital in origin. A history of an anteriorly placed chest tube suggests an acquired etiology for this malformation.

    Congenital arteriovenous fistulas are a rare cause of neck mass in children, but should be considered in the differential diagnosis of paediatric patients presenting with pulsatile neck masses even when there is no history of trauma. Balloon embolisation is the treatment of choice because of the...

    Although dilatation of the pulmonary artery (PA) is characteristic of pulmonic valve stenosis (PVS), the occurrence of a PA aneurysm in association with PVS is very rare. The authors describe a patient with severe, dome-shaped PVS who developed a 6.5 cm pulmonary trunk aneurysm. Long-term...

    We report a case of a mycotic pulmonary aneurysm associated with Candida endocarditis in a 53-year-old male with lymphoma.

    Aim: Renal agenesis is a fairly common congenital anomaly with an unknown definite etiology. Unilateral renal agenesis is much more common than bilateral renal agenesis, but it usually does not carry any major health consequence, as long as the other kidney is healthy. In some cases, renal...
