INTRODUCTION: Multiple myeloma (MM) is characterized by the presence of neoplastic proliferating plasma cells. The tumor is generally restricted to the bone marrow. The most common complications include renal insufficiency, hypercalcemia, anemia and reccurent infections. The spectrum of MM neurological complications is diverse, however, involvement of MM in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and leptomeningeal infiltration are rare considered. In about 1% of the cases, the disease affects the central nervous system (CNS) and presents itself in the form of localized intraparenchymal lesions, solitary cerebral plasmocytoma or CNS myelomatosis (LMM)...

Posterior laryngeal granuloma is an infrequent pathology of multidisciplinary interest. Actually, its real prevalence is difficult to quantify because in some cases it is asymptomatic and in other instances it may either be reabsorbed or eliminated spontaneously. It is located at the vocal apophysis of the arytenoid or, less frequently, above it or on the laryngeal side of the arytenoid. The many etiologic factors (laryngeal intubation, gastro-esophageal refluxes, blunt trauma of the larynx, vocal dysfunction), sometimes concomitant and with the possible addition of enhancing circumstances (upper aerodigestive tract inflammation, naso-gastric tube, smoking and alcohol abuse), converge to a single pathogenetic mechanism: an ulceration of the mucosa and the pericondrium, sometimes complicated by an infection, which does not heal but instead produces a typical granulation tissue with capillaries oriented radially from the center of the lesion...

Epidemiologic data on prevalence of bronchial asthma among childhood in the Azores have been unknown so far. In October of 1993 a study was carried out to determine the prevalence of bronchial asthma in children aged 6-12 years on the island of Faial. Nine hundred and twenty seven schoolchildren, representing more than 95% of children within this age group, were studied. A questionnaire was distributed to be filled out by their parents and returned to the schools. Children were considered to have bronchial hyperreactivity when they had an episodical wheeze, spontaneous or related to cold, exercise, airway infections or allergic exposure, and to have asthma when they had been diagnosed by a doctor or had consulted their physicians for dispnea accompanied by wheezing and had received asthma medication in the last year or in their lifetime...
