Introduction Cerine Jeanty


Dear Esteemed Users of,

I would like to introduce myself: My name is Cerine Jeanty and I am Philippe’s daughter. I am a general surgeon practicing in San Francisco, California. I am married to a wonderful husband, Danton, who is from Guanajuato, Mexico. I have 3 daughters, Inca (age 9), Izelle (age 7), and Cleo (age 5), who go to a bilingual Chinese school and speak Mandarin fluently. I speak English, French, and Spanish.

My hobbies are woodworking (This should not be surprising for those of you who knew my father!) :

Izelle desk
To accommodate distance learning, I built a new desk for my daughter.
Chicken Coop
Chicken coop we built in the backyard. The kids are testing out the structural soundness of the coop.
Library box
Library box we built in our front yard. Visit for more information on this non-profit organization

Sewing (an occupational prerequisite, I suppose):

sewing pants
Holes in the kid’s pants provide an opportunity to embellish their garments!
sewing masks
The pandemic has added an additional item to our wardrobes. Might as well make it fun to wear.

And more recently, raising chickens and filming videos for my kids:

I cannot express my grief and sorrow after my father’s death, but what gives me some consolation is being able to carry on his legacy in My father would want his website to live on as a free, educational resource with global contributions. I have been working closely with Chuck, Federico, Fabien, Franti, and Irina to familiarize myself with the process and content of the site. I have some experience publishing in the medical literature and hope to be able to use this experience to benefit the website.

Over the course of the next several weeks, we will begin to implement some changes:

  1. The user will upload and format their cases and images to the site. This will be different than previously where my father and his team formatted images, added the copyright labels and built the web page. Everyone working on the site is a volunteer, thus to continue, we must share the burden of the workload. This will take some learning, but we will have clear instructions on the process once it is finalized.
  2. As we implement the new site, there may be gaps in posting the Case of the Week and in adding winners. We ask for your patience as everyone familiarizes themselves with the new procedures. You may be asked to submit your cases again to the new website, and we apologize for the repetition.
  3. As I am a general surgeon and not a radiologist, I will need your help to review cases and articles for the site. I plan to design a model where the “Reviewer of the Month” helps approve cases and articles for publication. This will be a rotating position to avoid placing too much of a burden on one individual. Please let me know if you are interested in being a “Reviewer of the Month.
  4. We have added  a new “Discussion” tab. I hope that this tab can be used to discuss your diagnostic dilemmas. In the future, you will be able to upload images and videos to these discussions and receive feedback from the international community.

Finally, please be patient with us as we continue to modify and upgrade the site, and send us your feedback ( as there is always room for improvement!
