BACKGROUND: Urothelial carcinoma (UC) of bladder is a rare condition in children. Majority of the cases are non-invasive and low grade in this age group. However, there is no follow-up protocol defined for this patient group. The objective of this study is to draw attention to childhood bladder tumors and focus on current recommendations for postoperative follow-up together with our experience with four cases. CASE REPORT: A total of 4 cases aged under the age of 18, who were treated in our clinics between 2001 and 2015 with the diagnosis of urothelial carcinoma were retrospectively evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Clear cell sarcoma is a rare malignant soft tissue neoplasm that typically involves tendons and aponeurosis. Clear cell sarcoma occurring in the dermis is an extremely rare occurrence. It is difficult to differentiate between this neoplasm and dermal malignant melanoma because they both have similar morphologic and immunohistochemical features. Although rare, clear cell sarcoma of the skin typically occur in the extremities. To our knowledge, there are no reported cases of primary clear cell sarcoma of the skin occurring in the neck...

Chronobiology is a field that studies the effects of time on biological systems. Periodicity is of particular interest. The master biological clock in the suprachiasmatic nucleus controls daily rhythms of core body temperature, rest-activity cycle, physiological and behavioral functions, psychomotor functions and mood in humans. The clock genes are involved in the generation of the circadian rhythms and the biological clock is synchronized to solar day by direct photic inputs. Various circadian rhythm abnormalities have been demonstrated in mood disorders such as unipolar depression, bipolar depression and seasonal affective disorder...

BACKGROUND: In addition to pain caused by uterine contractions in labor, continuous and severe back pain is observed in 33% of women. Several pharmacological and nonpharmacological methods are available for managing this pain. Sterile water injection is considered to be an alternative method for nonpharmacological management. AIM: The aim of this study was to assess the satisfaction level and effectiveness of sterile water injection for back pain among women in labor...

BACKGROUND: Homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH) is a rare inherited metabolic disease, caused by low-density lipoprotein receptor abnormality. Patients with HoFH have an increased risk for cardiovascular complication (CVC) that usually occurs in the first decade of life. We report a twelve years-old girl with unpredicted presentation for coronary artery disease (CAD) and she was found to have HoFH. CASE REPORT: A 12 years old girl was admitted to our unit with syncope...

BACKGROUND: Transplantation of fetal mesencephalic tissue is a well-established concept for functional reinnervation of the dopamine-depleted rat striatum. However, no extensive description of the glial reaction of the host brain following this procedure has been carried out. AIMS: The present study aims at a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the astrogliosis surrounding intrastriatal grafts and comparing it to the reaction caused by a mechanical injury with the transplantation instrument only...

BACKGROUND: Today, more than 90% of adolescents with chronic conditions are surviving into adulthood and move pediatric to adult care with their chronic illness. It is important to gain autonomy and ensure readiness for adolescents/ young adults to use the adult health care system prior to the transfer of care. However, the lack of the transition readiness assessment tool which is validated, patient-centered and appropriate to developmental differences in pediatric care is seen a major obstacle for transition of care from pediatric to adult services...

Translation as a notion and procedure is deeply embodied in medical science and education. It includes the possibility to translate data across disciplines in order to improve diagnosis and treatment procedures. The evidence accumulated by means of translation serves as vehicle for reification of medical diagnoses. There are established promising post hoc correlations between the different types of clinical tools (interviews and inventories) on one hand and neuroscience on the other. Insofar the different kinds of measures represent statistical correlations which still need to be integrated into diagnostic standards and procedures but this, as a whole, is a step forward towards a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying psychopathology in general and depression in particular...

In this invited review article I present a translational perspective and overview of our research on auditory hallucinations in schizophrenia at the University of Bergen, Norway with a focus on the neuronal mechanisms underlying the phenomenology of experiencing "hearing voices". An auditory verbal hallucination, i.e. "hearing a voice", is defined as a sensory experience in the absence of a corresponding external sensory source that could explain the phenomenological experience. I suggest a general frame or scheme for the study of auditory verbal hallucinations which is called Levels of Explanation (LoE)...

BACKGROUND: Hearing loss is the most common sensory deficit with many genetic and environmental underpinnings. While causative DNA variants in over 100 genes have been identified, most deafness-causing genes are rare, apart from a few exceptions. A single SYNE4 variant co-segregating with hearing loss has recently been reported in two Middle-Eastern families. CASE REPORT: In this report we present two members of a family with non-syndromic high frequency sensorineural hearing loss who are homozygous for a novel pathogenic SYNE4 c...

BACKGROUND: Implant-based breast reconstruction after mastectomy has recently been reported to be the preferred type of surgery among breast specific surgeons and plastic surgeons. AIMS: The aim of this study is to explore the significant clinicopathological factors associated with long term outcome related to local recurrences of the nipple among patients who underwent immediate breast reconstruction (IBR) with tissue expander (TE) or implant after mastectomy. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort Methods: From January 2007 to January 2013, 51 breast cancer patients who underwent IBR with TE or implant were retrospectively analyzed...

This paper reviews translational research in psychiatry, focusing on those programs addressing the problem of the validity of psychiatric diagnoses. In medicine in general, and in psychiatry in particular, the term "translational" is used with different meanings. A conceptual analysis suggests that in psychiatry there are at least seven different types of translational research: T1 ("bench-to-bedside" development of tools and treatments), T2 (application of animal models to human psychiatry), T3 (papers focusing on the mind-brain gap, studying biological, neurobiological and cognitive dysfunctions), T4 (personalized therapies and prediction of treatment responses), T5 ("bedside-to-bench" translation of population data for laboratories), T6 (implementation of treatments at population level, including accessibility and quality of services), T7 (improving translational knowledge in residents" trainings and researchers" careers)...

BACKGROUND: Thyroid cancer is the most common endocrine cancers with an increasing incidence around the world in the last three decades. The increased risk of secondary cancer is associated with genetic predisposition or radioactive iodine (RAI) used in the treatment. CASE REPORT: 65-year old male patient was operated for thyroid papillary cancer. Total thyroidectomy was performed. He received RAI two times. After six years he presented with eosinophilic myeloproliferative neoplasia and T-cell lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma, together...

BACKGROUND: In Bulgaria, more than 20 autochthonous human parasitic infections have been described and some of them are widespread. Over 50 imported protozoan and helminthic infections represent diagnostic and therapeutic challenge and pose epidemiological risk due to the possibility of local transmission. AIMS: To establish the distribution of autochthonous and imported parasitic diseases among the population of the country and to evaluate their significance for the public health system...

BACKGROUND: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is the most frequently seen endocrine disorder in women of the reproductive age with the prevalence of about 10%. AIMS: To investigate the efficiency of the growth differentiation factor 9 (GDF9) and bone morphogenetic protein 15 (BMP15) during folliculogenesis in a dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)-induced mouse PCOS model. STUDY DESIGN: Animal experimentation. METHODS: Mice were divided into three groups; control, vehicle and PCOS group...
