We report a successful laparoscopic management of an interstitial pregnancy of a 24- year-old single woman, treated by cornuostomy. The patient was first managed with methotrexate treatment. After the 2. methotrexate administration, the patient suffered from low abdominal pain, and intraabdominal bleeding signs were reported by transvaginal ultrasonograpy. The hemoglobin level was decreased from 12.8 gr/dl to 11.8 gr/dl and the beta hCG level was increased from 8,314 mIU/l to 11,541 mIU/l. The laparoscopic approach to interstitial pregnancy was presented and other management strategies such as medical treatment and laparotomy have been reviewed.

    Solid pseudopapillary tumor (SPT) is an uncommon neoplasm of the pancreas. A rare case of spontaneous rupture of SPT is reported. A 13-year-old female felt acute abdominal pain without blunt abdominal trauma. Enhanced computed tomography (CT) revealed a tumor in the pancreas tail with fluid...

    Stone-containing urachal cysts are extremely rare in adults. Here, we report the case of a 58-year-old man with a urachal cyst who had lower abdominal pain and urinary frequency. Abdominal ultrasonography and computed tomography showed hyperdense stones in the urachus. He was treated with a...
