INTRODUCTION: Condyloma acuminatum has previously been considered to be a benign growth with no malignant potential, but a review of the literature supports the concept that condylomata acuminata may precede or be associated with invasive squamous cell carcinoma (ISCC) or warty squamous cell carcinoma (WSCC). CASE REPORT: We present a clinical case of a 58-year old woman with large, slow-growing, exophytic tumor of external genitalia shaped like a cauliflower with the propagation to both legs and behind...

INTRODUCTION: Epidemiological studies suggest a link between the symptoms of lower urinary tract (LUTS) caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and erectile dysfunction (ED). Increasing expected period of life, justify the interest of establishing correlations LUTS / BPH and ED in order to find more efficient ways of treating these pathologies. GOAL: The objective was to evaluate the correlation of symptoms in LUTS/BPH with the degree of ED. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study was conducted as a prospective study which involved males aged 40-60 yr with present symptoms of LUTS/BPH...

INTRODUCTION: chronic urticaria (CU) is a skin disorder characterized by transient, pruritic wheals persisting for longer than 6 weeks. The etiopathogenesis of the disease is still unclear, but there is evidence that autoimmunity and endocrine dysfunction may be involved. AIM: the aim of this study was to determine whether chronic urticaria is statistically associated with thyroid autoimmunity. PATIENTS AND METHODS: in a prospective case-control study, we compared the frequency of thyroid auto-antibodies (thyroglobulin antibody, anti-Tg and thyroid peroxidase antibody, anti-TPO) in 70 patients with chronic urticaria and in 70 healthy volunteers...
