A 68-year-old Japanese man was referred to Tsukuba University Hospital for bladder cancer treatment. He had undergone a transurethral resection of a bladder tumor (TURBT) at a local hospital, but the pathological specimen did not contain muscle layer. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a 3 cm non-papillary bladder tumor with muscle invasion, but there was no apparent calcification. The patient underwent re-TURBT at our hospital for diagnosis and staging. A non-papillary pedunculated tumor was identified in the bladder dome, and it contained a small papillary part...

: We compared the short-term, middle-term and long-term primary outcomes between thrombolysis and nonthrombolysis therapy in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients. Medical records were collected from patients suffered from AIS between 2010 and 2013 and allocated into either the intravenous recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (as rt-PA group) treatment, or non-rt-PA treatment group (as control group). The primary outcomes included a proportion of patients with favorable outcome [as defined with a modified Rankin Scale (mRS) of 0-1], functional independence (mRS of 0-2) or with bad outcome (mRS of 5-6) at 3, 6 and 12 months and the overall mortality...

Lactobacillus is a genus of Gram-positive, facultative anaerobic/ microaerophilic, rod-shaped bacteria. Lactobacilli constitute a significant component of the human microbiota in the oral cavity, gastrointestinal tract and female urogenital tract. They are also widely used as probiotics. Rarely, especially in patients with impaired immunity or with structural heart disease, do Lactobacilli become the pathogen responsible for serious infections, e.g. infective endocarditis (IE). CASE REPORT: The authors describe a case of an 80-year-old female with a past history of aortic valve replacement, mitral annuloplasty and pacemaker implantation admitted to hospital due to weakening, subfebrile state and chills...

Little is known about the epidemiology of human brucellosis in sub-Saharan Africa. This hampers prevention and control efforts at the individual and population levels. To evaluate risk factors for brucellosis in northern Tanzania, we conducted a study of patients presenting with fever to two hospitals in Moshi, Tanzania. Serum taken at enrollment and at 4-6 week follow-up was tested by Brucella microagglutination test. Among participants with a clinically compatible illness, confirmed brucellosis cases were defined as having a ≥ 4-fold rise in agglutination titer between paired sera or a blood culture positive for Brucella spp...

INTRODUCTION: The prevalence of incidental 18 F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-avid findings on positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET/CT) has been extensively described. Few studies, however, have assessed the prevalence and significance of non-FDG-avid findings; pathology that is identified on review of the low-dose, non-contrast CT. The aim of this study was to determine the overall prevalence of non FDG-avid incidental findings on PET/CT and the prevalence of 'clinically significant' non FDG-avid pathology...
