Neonatal stridor is a rare condition usually caused by laryngomalacia. Congenital laryngeal cyst represents an uncommon cause of stridor in the neonatal population and may be misinterpreted as laryngomalacia, leading to serious morbidity and mortality if diagnosis and treatment are delayed. Herein we report the case of a full-term infant with stridor, feeding problems and failure to thrive. Initially, direct laryngoscopy diagnosed only laryngomalacia. As stridor worsened, however, and respiratory distress appeared, repeat laryngoscopy showed vallecular laryngeal cyst, visible macroscopically...

The case report describes a teratoma of the sellar region with a gland forming and an immature, relatively clear undifferentiated component without signs of anaplasia. Both components express TTF-1 indicating their presumable origin in the neurohypophysis as part of the circumventricular organs. The differential diagnosis includes pituitary adenoma and spindle cell oncocytoma with inclusion of Rathke's cleft cyst, pituitary blastoma, yolk sac tumor, and other germ cell tumors. The prognosis is the same as in the immature teratomas in the gonads, specifically unclear...

We present the case of a 63-year-old woman with a remote history of supraventricular tachycardia and hyperlipidemia, who presented with recurrent episodes of acute-onset chest pain. An electrocardiogram showed no evidence of acute coronary syndrome. A chest radiograph revealed a prominent right-sided heart border. A suspected congenital pericardial cyst was identified on a computed tomographic chest scan, and stranding was noted around the cyst. The patient was treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and the pain initially abated...

Malignant proliferating trichilemmal tumour (MPTT) is a rare cutaneous tumour predominantly affecting the scalp, eyelids, neck and face of elderly women. It is a large, solitary, multilobulated lesion that may arise within a pilar cyst. These tumours are largely benign, often cystic and are characterized by trichilemmal keratinisation. However at times, the tumour has an aggressive clinical course and a propensity for distant metastasis. We report a case of a 29-year-old male who presented with a scalp swelling...

A 54-year-old woman underwent colonoscopy for colon cancer screening. Colonoscopy showed multiple cysts in the sigmoid colon, with the largest being 4 cm in diameter. One of the cysts was biopsied. Cyst walls were observed; during biopsy, the gas was released and the cyst collapsed. Computed tomography of the abdomen confirmed a diagnosis of pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis. Pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis is a rare disease characterized by the presence in the intestinal submucosa or subserosa of multiple cysts filled with gas (nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide and hydrogen)...

We describe cases of collyriclosis in apodiform and passeriform birds in Portugal, Switzerland, and Germany. We extend the host range of Collyriculm faba to include apodiform birds ( Apus apus , Apus melba , and Apus pallidus ) and the passerine Sitta europaea (Eurasian Nuthatch). Infections varied in severity from an incidental finding to severe debilitation and death. The infection route remains unclear with the apparent absence from Germany, Portugal, and Switzerland of the first intermediate host of C. faba, the aquatic gastropod Bythinella austriaca, implying that other organisms might be involved in the parasite's life cycle...

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the most common hereditary form of kidney disease. Clinical data on this multisystem disorder are scarce from developing countries. We conducted a prospective observational study of the clinical profile of ADPKD patients at a single center over a period of six years. A total of 208 patients were studied. Majority were male (60.6%) and the mean age was 45.8 ± 14.5 years. About 61.5% had early stage (Stages 1-3) of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and 38.5% had advanced CKD (Stages 4 and 5)...

Pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB) is a rare malignancy of childhood. It often represents a manifestation of a hereditary tumor predisposition syndrome (DICER1 syndrome). Because of its malignant potential, surgical resection of cystic lung lesions is recommended in germline DICER1 mutation carriers. We present a case of a 3-year-old male child with type III PPB successfully managed with ifosfamide, vincristine, actinomycin-D, and doxorubicin (IVADo) chemotherapy and surgery. A heterozygous germline pR688X mutation of DICER1 gene was demonstrated...

The nitrogen-related phosphotransferase system (PTS(Ntr) ) is composed of the EI(Ntr) , NPr and EIIA(Ntr) proteins that form a phosphorylation cascade from phosphoenolpyruvate. PTS(Ntr) is a global regulatory system present in most Gram-negative bacteria that controls some pivotal processes such as potassium and phosphate homeostasis, virulence, nitrogen fixation and ABC transport activation. In the soil bacterium Azotobacter vinelandii, unphosphorylated EIIA(Ntr) negatively regulates the expression of genes related to the synthesis of the bioplastic polyester poly-β-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) and cyst-specific lipids alkylresorcinols (ARs)...

True epithelial-lined cysts are rare forms of adrenal cystic lesions, the pathogenesis of which is still not fully understood. In this report we present a case of an adrenal cyst diagnosed incidentally on imaging in a 31-year-old, previously healthy, obese woman. Due to non-specific hormonal disorders and enlargement of the lesion, a right-sided laparoscopic adrenalectomy was performed. The cyst was lined predominantly by ciliated cuboidal-to-columnar, Müllerian-type epithelium, and focally by flat-to-cuboidal, mesothelium-like lining...

BACKGROUND: Lumbar facet cysts are a benign, degenerative, and fairly uncommon cause for lumbar radiculopathy. The standard surgical treatment for lumbar facet cysts often requires a laminectomy and medial facetectomy which can further destabilize a pathological motion segment. The authors present here a novel technique for transpedicular endoscopic access to the pathology that obviates the need to violate the lamina or facet. METHODS: Two patient cases are described where the lumbar 4-5 facet cysts arise medial to the pedicle...

Here, we describe a case of congenital anterior urethral diverticulum (CAUD) in a two-year-old boy, who presented with right inguinoscrotal swelling that mimicked a spermatic cord cyst or hydrocele. Accurate diagnosis was made intraoperatively by retrograde urethrography. Open diverticulectomy and primary urethroplasty were performed for its management. The clinical presentation, diagnosis, and the management of this rare condition is discussed.

Hydatid disease is a rare parasitic disease, which mainly involves liver then lung tissues. Cardiac involvement is very rare, especially when there is not hepatic involvement. We describe a 47-year-old woman with a history of a lung hydatid cyst who was referred to Rajaei Heart Center, Tehran, Iran in 2012. Her chest computed tomographic scan showed a cardiac mass. Echocardiographic examination illustrated a large, well-defined heterogeneous mass (4.5 × 2.5 cm) in the roof of the right atrium with attachment to the crista terminalis without compressive effect on the inferior and superior venae cavae...

BACKGROUND: Toxoplasma gondii is the most common parasite causing latent cerebral infections in human. It has been shown that some anti-psychotic drugs are able to inhibit the proliferation of the parasite in in vitro study. There is very limited data regarding the inhibitory effect of anti-psychotics on Toxoplasma in in vivo. In this study, we evaluated anti-Toxoplasma activity of fluphenazine and thioridazine drugs on T. gondii in mice. METHODS: Mice were divided into six groups: Control, sesame as vehicle, thioridazine 10 mg/kg, thioridazine 20 mg/kg, fluphenazine 0...
