INTRODUCTION: Local recurrence of prostate cancer (PCa) following radiotherapy may be treated with curative intent using salvage high-intensity focused ultrasound (s-HIFU). The interpretation of needle core biopsy specimens following s-HIFU is a daunting task, even for experienced pathologists. We describe various histopathological features encountered in biopsy specimens following whole-gland s-HIFU in one of the largest descriptive studies to date. METHODS: Fifty-five patients with biopsy-proven localized radio-recurrent PCa underwent s-HIFU and transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided prostatic needle biopsies at 180 days post-treatment...

Behçet disease (BD) is a multisystem disorder, with vasculitis as its underlying pathological process, in contrast to the classic triad of recurrent oral and genital ulcerations, with uveitis. Vascular involvement in BD includes venous thrombosis, arterial occlusion, and pulmonary artery and aortic aneurysm formation. Cardiac involvement is rare and often obscure. It includes intracardiac thrombi formation, and is associated with a poor prognosis. Our objectives are to describe two cases with BD, complicated with vascular and cardiac involvement, and to raise awareness of these rare complications, the needed routine surveillance, and thus to prevent inappropriate interventions, serious outcomes, and mortality...

Nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy (NFLE) is a focal epilepsy with seizures arising mainly during sleep and characterized by complex, often bizarre, motor behavior or sustained dystonic posturing. First described in 1981, it was initially considered a motor disorder of sleep and was named nocturnal paroxysmal dystonia (NPD). The unusual seizure semiology, onset during sleep, and often uninformative scalp EEG and brain MRI make it difficult to distinguish NPD attacks from other non-epileptic nocturnal paroxysmal events, namely parasomnias...

Patients with advanced chronic kidney disease including ESRD patients may present with a wide spectrum of cutaneous abnormalities, ranging from xerosis to hyperpigmentation to severe deforming necrotizing lesions. Skin problems are not uncommon in this population of patients, with a clinical presentation that can be quite bizarre, mandating a long list of differential diagnostic possibilities, and subsequent rise of a puzzling diagnostic challenge. We describe an ESRD patient who presented with blistering, nonhealing ulcerative lesions with a diagnostic skin biopsy revealing a mixed pattern of linear IgA bullous dermatosis and dermatitis herpetiformis...

In this paper fascination phenomenologically is described as a state of radically being captured by an imposing object. What is left of the impoverished and paralysed subject clings to the exclusive fascinating object. Fascination is the eye of the storm of extreme ambivalence towards an exclusive object: being the only remaining object it is necessary for living in an object world, but at the same time it is threatening to life by absorbing the subject totally. So the subject is sucked in by a yet frightening object...

AIM: Few studies have investigated Internet Addiction (IA) in adolescents in relation to personality characteristics. The aim of this study was to determine whether personality differences exist between adolescents with problematic/pathological Internet use and those with normal Internet use. Our hypothesis was that certain psychopathological personality traits may predispose to the development of maladaptive Internet use. METHODS: The Internet Addiction Test (IAT) and the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-Adolescent (MMPI-A) were administered to a sample of 224 high school students...

OBJECTIVES: Considering that suicide is one of the most common reasons of adolescent death worldwide, there is a lack of clinical awareness on suicidal behaviors of children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The present study aims to assess the rate of suicidality (suicidal ideation, behaviors and attempts) and associated risk factors for suicidality in high functioning ASD. METHODS: Medical records of 55 adolescents (six girls, 49 boys), aged between 7-20 years, with diagnosis of ASD were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac tamponade is an emergency condition that requires early recognition and prompt pericardial decompression. Little has been reported on cardiac tamponade in liver retransplantation (reLT), but most cases are fatal. We managed a case of reLT complicated by accidental cardiac tamponade. CASE REPORT: A 59-year-old man underwent an emergency reLT because of liver cirrhosis with recurrent hepatitis B. During the dissection, suprahepatic exploration was attempted, but this resulted in severe hemorrhage because of the many tissue adhesions...

Self-mutilation is the deliberate direct injuring of body tissue, often done without suicidal intention. Genital self-mutilation is a very rare event and self-harm of the penis, especially in the genital system is exceedingly rare. Generally, this kind of behavior is related to psychotic disorders but can sometimes be seen in non-psychotic people due to bizarre autoerotic acts, a desire for to change sex or religious beliefs that view sexual intercourse as a sin. Our case was the reported genital self-mutilation as a result of the bizarre sexual arousal of a young man who is employed as an architect...

BACKGROUND: Various different mucocutaneous symptoms may affect up to 80 % of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients. OBJECTIVES: To investigate, various unspecific, but otherwise typical clinical symptoms of skin and mucous membranes that arise in SLE patients other than those defined as SLE criteria such as butterfly rash, chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus, oral ulcers, and increased photosensitivity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Extensive search of peer-reviewed scientific articles was performed, medical histories of several SLE patients seen in our department were analyzed, and the rare disease courses in three SLE patients are presented...

BACKGROUND: Grade 2 nodular sclerosis classical Hodgkin lymphoma (NSCHL) is less common than grade 1 lymphoma and has a worse overall prognosis. To the best of the authors' knowledge, no study of a large series of cases has been performed until now. The objective of this study was to assess the diagnostic efficacy of cytology for grade 2 NSCHL versus grade 1 NSCHL and study the morphological features of grade 2 NSCHL in fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). METHODS: Fifteen of 51 histopathology-proven cases of NSCHL (18 FNAC procedures) were grade 2, and 36 were grade 1...

: Accurate mitosis-counting, which is important in the diagnosis of uterine smooth muscle tumors (USMT), is often difficult and subjective. The mitosis-specific immunohistochemical marker phosphohistone H3 (PHH3) has been shown to be diagnostically useful but its expression, in relation to outcome, has not been thoroughly investigated. AIMS AND METHODS: PHH3 expression was evaluated on 55 leiomyosarcomas (LMSs), 26 smooth muscle tumors of uncertain malignant potential (STUMPs), 18 leiomyomas with bizarre nuclei (LBNs) and 12 leiomyomas (LMs)...

The secondary distinctiveness effect means that items that are unusual compared to one's general knowledge stored in permanent memory are remembered better than common items. This research studied two forms of secondary-distinctiveness-based effects in conjunction: the bizarreness effect and the orthographic distinctiveness (OD) effect. More specifically, an experiment investigated in young adults a possible additive effect of bizarreness and OD effects in free recall performance. Results revealed that in young adults these two secondary-distinctiveness-based effects appear to be largely independent and can complement each other to enhance performance...

The author analyzes the features of the syndrome of «delusional fantasies» (delusion-like fantasies) in the concept of K. Birnbaum. According to this concept, psychopathic constitutions, due to the presence in the structure of dissociation, are the basis for the development of delusions per se. «Dreamer» and «vershroben» types are predisposed to the syndrome of «delusional fantasies». It is emphasized that initially the syndrome of «delusional fantasies» was described as a peculiar phasic episode of delusions in psychopaths, aged between 20-30 years...

A 60-year-old man was admitted due to rectosigmoid colon cancer, and a hepatic mass was incidentally found during the staging work-up. The mass appeared cystic with a thick wall and contained multiple bizarre cord-like structures on ultrasound, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. The differential diagnoses included organizing abscess/hematoma, foreign body granuloma and parasite infestation. Serologic study revealed anti-sparganum antibodies. Over 4-year follow-up, the patient did not complain of symptoms, and no changes in the characteristics of the liver mass were observed...

BACKGROUND: Chromosome 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11DS) is a promising model for studying psychosis risk. Direct comparisons of psychosis features between 22q11DS and nondeleted (ND) individuals are limited by inconsistency and small samples. In the largest study to date, we compare 22q11DS to ND in comorbidities, functioning, cognition, and psychosis features across the full range of overall severity. METHODS: ND youths (n = 150) ages 9 to 24 years were matched to 22q11DS individuals (n = 150) on age and sex, stratifying for presence of psychosis-spectrum disorder...
