In cases where the masses were not freely accessible nor resectable the samples were obtained either by Ultra sound guided/ CT guided
needle aspirations or needle core biopsies.
Type 2 Amyand's hernia is managed by appendicectomy and type 3 and 4 by percutaneous CT guided
drainage, open drainage through the groin or laparotomy.9,10 The controversy exists about the management of type1 Amyand's hernia where appendix is not inflamed.9 Some studies suggest that appendicectomy can lead to wound infection and chances of hernia recurrence while others suggest that incidental appendicectomy can theoretically decrease the chances of future morbidity if appendicitis occurs and there is also a fear that manipulating appendix may lead to secondary appendicitis.7 These concerns are not scientifically proven and long term follow up in few cases suggest that simple reduction of non-inflammed appendix is usually preferred.
Ultrasound chest was done to exclude large effusion; and patients not fit for CT guided
biopsy because of desaturation were excluded from study.

Once the presence of a symptomatic intra-articular ganglion cyst has been identified, various treatment options including open or arthroscopic resection, ultrasound guided aspiration and CT guided
aspiration have been described.
Restaging scans post HDT /ASCT was performed on day 100, which showed interval development of multiple focal hepatic and splenic hypo densities [Fig.1: A and B] for which a CT guided
splenic biopsy was taken.
Of these, 3 patients had a sample obtained from a CT guided
biopsy, 2 had a bronchoscopic biopsy, 1 EBUS FNA of a node, 1 bronchial washing, 1 bone metastasis biopsy, and 1 sample was a pleural fluid sample.
