1.  Paragangliome rétropéritonéal non secrétant: une cause rare d'occlusion intestinale haute 
Les paragangliomes sont des tumeurs neuroendocrines rares diagnostiquées le plus souvent chez le jeune adulte. Nous rapportons le cas rare d'une jeune femme de 20 ans présentant un paragangliome rétropéritonéal situé sur la face antérolatérale de l'aorte et comprimant l'angle duodéno-jéjunal responsable d'un syndrome subocclusif haut. Dans les formes non sécrétantes, la symptomatologie est souvent déroutante. Le diagnostic n'est généralement fait qu'après examen histologique de la pièce de résection. Le traitement de choix repose sur une chirurgie carcinologique intégrant une concertation multidisciplinaire.

2.  Giant Malignant Cystic Pheochromocytoma: A Case Report 
The Indian Journal of Surgery  2012;74(6):504-506.
Cystic malignant pheochromocytomas are uncommon. Differing from solid pheochromocytomas, which produce catecholamines and present adrenergic syndrome, cystic pheochromocytomas, may not produce these. Preoperative diagnosis may be difficult. Ct scan is useful for preoperative management. In this report, we describe a case of a giant malignant cystic pheochromocytoma in a young woman (17 years old) which presented as giant abdominal mass. The malignancy was confirmed by the presence of liver metastasis. Two years after curative resection, the patient is in good health with no recurrence.

3.  Giant Liposarcoma of the Omentum Mimicking an Ovarian Tumor. A Case Report  
The Indian Journal of Surgery  2012;74(5):425-427.
Liposarcomas are common soft tissue of the retroperitoneum and the limbs. They are rarely found in the greater omentum. Once in the peritoneum, these can become enormous and can be mistaken for ovarian mass. The authors report a case of giant omental liposarcoma revealed by an abdominal mass and genital prolapse due to the compression syndrome. A complete macroscopic resection of the omental tumour was performed. A post operative chemotherapy was also prescribed. A description of this clinical presentation in the preoperative assessment, the characteristics of this tumour, together with the use of adjuvant chemotherapy are discussed in this report.

4.  Giant Trichobezoar of Duodenojejunal Flexure: A Rare Entity 
Bezoars are concretions of undigested material in the gastrointestinal tract, most commonly in the stomach. Duodenojejunal localization of bezoars is exceptional. We report a case of a 27-year-old woman who experienced nausea, vomiting and severe abdominal pain for one week. By palpation a mobile and sensitive mass, 15 × 15 cm, was detected, which filled the upper quadrant. Results of gastric endoscopy were normal. X-ray and ultrasonography suggested a bezoar. A laparotomy revealed that the jejunum was fissured by the trichobezoar ball. This trichobezoar mass was totally excised by intestinal resection.
To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of duodenojejunal fissuration caused by trichobezoar in an adult. Among patients with high subocclusif syndrome, duodenojejunal bezoar should remain a possibility in differential diagnosis.
