mustangsally65 Posted December 29, 2008 Report Share Posted December 29, 2008 I didn't know where else to post this, so I apologize if this is in the wrong forum. My university doesn't have access, and I need the full text of this article: "Pitfall of the Accessory Spleen" by Sels J.P.J.E.; Wouters R.M.M.E.; Lamers R.; Wolffenbuttel B.H.R. The Netherlands Journal of Medicine. Volume 56, Issue 4, April 2000, Pages 153-158 Here's the abstract: "Two patients, one with insulinoma and one with Cushing's syndrome, are presented. Biochemical evaluation readily suggested the correct diagnosis. During radiologic imaging, the anatomic abnormality giving rise to these diseases, i.e. a pancreatic islet cell tumor, and an adrenal adenoma, at first were mistakenly interpreted as an accessory spleen on the basis of specific computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging appearances. The insulinoma was identified as such during laparotomy, whereas additional jodo-cholesterol scintigraphy revealed the real nature of the lesion in the patient with Cushing's syndrome. Both patients were operated successfully." I see so many links here of full-text articles, and I hoped someone had access to an organization that can save the pdf file and post it here. I found the citation in PubMed and Science Direct, but they both directed me to Elsevier. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
