ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) and the veno-occlusive disease (VOD). It states that BCS is a liver disease resulting from a hepatic venous outflow block. The hepatic venous system could be invaded by malignant tumors of the liver and hepatic echinococcal disease. It cites that VOD is presented by non-thrombotic, microvascular lesions without involvement of large veins that occur in a particular context of exposure from endothelial toxins.

    Bronchogenic cysts frequently occur in the mediastinum. They may be rarely encountered in the abdomen and retroperitoneum. Bronchogenic cysts can in fact mimic hydatid cysts. We report a case of retroperitoneal bronchogenic cyst below the right hemidiaphragm mimicking a hydatid cyst of the liver...
