A glomangiopericytoma, or sinonasal type hemangiopericytoma, is a rare lesion which accounts for <0.5% of all sinonasal tumors. The mainstay treatment is wide excision. Instead of traditional open surgical approaches, such as midfacial degloving or lateral rhinotomy, we offer a case of 21-year-old male with diagnosis of glomangiopericytoma with skull base and intraorbital invasion and received navigation-assisted endoscopic excision of a glomangiopericytoma.

Bronchopleural fistula (BPF) is a sinus tract between the bronchus and the pleural space that may result from a necrotizing pneumonia/empyema (anaerobic, pyogenic, tuberculous, or fungal), lung neoplasms, and blunt and penetrating lung injuries or may occur as a complication of procedures such as lung biopsy, chest tube drainage, thoracocentesis, or radiation therapy. The diagnosis and management of BPF remain a major therapeutic challenge for clinicians, and the lesion is associated with significant morbidity and mortality...

Chien-Hui Lee, Sheng-Tzung Tsai, Tsung-Lang Chiu
Objectives: Direct microsurgical clipping for complex middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms may require a long ischemic time. Sacrifice of the parent artery with trapping or endovascular coiling also may lead to ischemic stroke. We described our institutional experience with the treatment of complex MCA aneurysms using extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) (superficial temporal artery [STA]-MCA) bypass. Materials and Methods: We retrospectively reviewed patients who had treatment of IC aneurysms with the assistance of STA-MCA bypass from July 2002 to December 2016...

REVIEW
Tsung-Ying Chen
Good medical leadership is the key to building high-quality healthcare. However, in the development of medical careers, the teaching of leadership has traditionally not equaled that of technical and academic competencies. As a result of changes in personal standards, the quality of medical leadership has led to variations between different organizations, as well as occasional catastrophic failure in the standard of care provided for patients. Leaders in the medical profession have called for reform in healthcare in response to challenges in the system and improvements in public health...

#13
REVIEW
Heng Lin, Ching-Feng Cheng
Recent studies have reported that ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) may act in the immune system where an exaggerated inflammatory response is initiated. With the activation of the immune system, damage-associated molecular patterns migrate and adhere to the I/R region, consequently inducing multiorgan injury. Emerging data indicate that upon I/R, stress-inducible proteins, including activating transcription factor 3 (ATF3), play essential roles in signaling during antiapoptotic, antimigration, and anti-inflammatory processes...

REVIEW
T N Uma Maheswari, Archana Venugopal, Nivedhita Malli Sureshbabu, Prathiba Ramani
Oral potentially malignant disorders (OPMD) are oral mucosal disorders which have a high potential to turn into malignancy. A recent report suggests that 16%-62% of epithelial dysplasia cases of OPMD undergo malignant transformation, showing the need for early detection of malignancy in these disorders. Micro RNA (miRNA) plays an important role in cellular growth, differentiation, apoptosis, and immune response, and hence, deregulation of miRNA is considered a signature of oral carcinogenesis. A search was done using MeSH terms in the PubMed, ScienceDirect databases, hand search, and finally, six studies were included in this systematic review...

#17
Jia-Hui Chen
Malrotation of the midgut is generally considered as a pediatric pathology with the majority of patients presenting in childhood. The diagnosis is rare in adults, which sometimes leads to delay in diagnosis and treatment. An index of suspicion is therefore required when dealing with patients of any age group with abdominal symptoms. We present a case of a 26-year-old male who presented with left lower abdominal pain with preoperative computed tomography showing suspected left-sided appendicitis associated with midgut malrotation...

Vipul D Yagnik
Synchronous penile and multiple cutaneous metastases over the pubic region from a rectal adenocarcinoma are rare, and they usually indicate widespread disease. The most frequent localization of cutaneous metastases is the postoperative scar. Simultaneous penile and pubic region metastases are extremely uncommon. Although a penile metastasis from a rectal adenocarcinoma has been reported, synchronous metastases over the penile and pubic area have not been reported previously. We present a case of penile and multiple cutaneous metastases over the pubic region from a rectal adenocarcinoma along with a brief review of the literature...

Upper tract urothelial cancer (UTUC) arises from the urothelial lining of the urinary tract. UTUC spreads in several different ways including direct invasion, lymphatic spread, and hematogeneous metastases. Regional lymph nodes are commonly the initial site of metastasis, followed by the liver, lung, and bone. Brain metastasis is uncommon in patients with urothelial carcinoma. Here, we report an uncommon case of kidney urothelial carcinoma with brain metastasis in a 55-year-old woman presenting with dysarthria with right side limb weakness...

Objective: Standardized patient (SP) scenarios could provide medical situations of high fidelity for teaching or examinations, which would otherwise be difficult with real patients. Moreover, SPs can also be used to reliably evaluate or certify the competence of medical trainees. Since the interactions between examinee and SP are dynamic and complex, SPs need to portray the case reliably and consistently across different examinees. Thus, we developed a 1-day program for newly recruited SPs to teach basic competence in case portrayal...
