    Abstract Tuberculous abscesses in the iliopsoas muscle are usually secondary to Pott´s disease or spinal tuberculosis. Another possibility is direct extension from nearby structures or hematogenous spread from a distant focus.
    We present the case of a 74-year-old immunocompetent man who was diagnosed with psoas abscess with no other apparent focus.
    The objective of this article is to keep in mind the possibility of primary tuberculosis in the form of an abscess in the psoas in order to help in its complex diagnostic approach, as well as review the most adequate diagnostic and therapeutic methods that has been published in the few references existing in the literature.

    Bronchopulmonary carcinoids, including typical and atypical histologies, are uncommon neuroendocrine tumors that have a wide range of clinical phenotypes. In addition to the carcinoid syndrome, other paraneoplastic syndromes are well-described, including ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) production. The authors describe a case presentation of a 23 year-old man with ectopic ACTH production from a bronchopulmonary atypical carcinoid. The use of ACTH as biochemical marker is described here, as its use predicted disease recurrence and helped to guide management.

    Small intestinal lymphangioma is a rare benign tumor of the lymphatic system. Lymphangiomas account for 6% of small intestinal tumours seen in children but area smaller percentage, approximately 1.4–2.4% in adults.Here we describe the first case of small intestinal lymphangioma with bleeding in a 57-year-old woman. She presented with persistent gastrointestinal bleeding and Upper and lower endoscopies did not reveal a bleeding source but lots of rufous intestinal contents. Laparotomy was performed and endoscopy revealed a small intestinal tumor. Partial resection of the small intestine was thus performed and the final pathological diagnosis was lymphangioma. However, accurate diagnosis could not usually be established preoperatively in spite of modern imaging techniques. To arrive at a definitive diagnosis and exclude malignancy, partial resection of the small intestine was considered to be the required treatment.
    Clinical Image
    A fifty-eight years old female patient admitted to our hospital with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) that caused by urinary tract infection. Her medical history was unremarkable, except for type 1 diabetes mellitus.Although urine culture revealed sterile within the seventh day of antibiotheraphy, urine analysis showed persistant pyuria. Only pathologic finding in the urinary ultrosonography was right atrophic kidney.
