VPH case report

Xiangyu Liu, Taisuke Otsuki, Akio Takahashi, Takanobu Kaido
INTRODUCTION: The authors here present a rare case of a 3-month-old infant with unilateral Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) who had excellent seizure control and no aggravation of previous existed neurological deficits after vertical parasagittal hemispherotomy (VPH). To our knowledge, this patient with SWS was the youngest one who received VPH. CASE DESCRIPTION: The use of VPH results in a successful treatment of intractable epilepsy in a patient with seizure onset in early infancy...

BACKGROUND: The vulvar cancer is the fourth more frequent neoplasia after the endometrial, cervix and ovarian cancer. Normally, it has been related to old women of ages from 70 to 80 years old. Rarely, it has been detected cases in adult or young women. However, its incidence has been increased in the last years and in more early years. It is for this change in the incidence and its appearance in early years why a possible etiology has been looked for, opening different hypothesis that go from that related to the HPV to those that study an inflammatory chronic process as the basis for the carcinogenesis...

Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is characterized by the presence of the Philadelphia chromosome (Ph), which results from a balanced translocation between chromosomes 9 and 22, the t(9;22)(q34;q11.2). In 5-10% of the cases, variants of the Ph (vPh) are detected, involving various breakpoints in addition to 9q34 and 22q11.2. Deletions on the der(9) and der(22) can be detected in approximately 10-15% of CML patients. The frequency of a deletion of the der(9) in vPh CML is variable. Most studies have shown high frequencies (30-45%) in this subgroup...

Verprolin is a yeast protein whose inactivation leads to a cytoskeletal defect characterized by the abnormal organization of actin filaments. Recently, two mammalian proteins previously shown to regulate the actin cytoskeleton, Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome Protein (WASP) and its homolog expressed in neurons (N-WASP), were found to possess short peptide motifs homologous to one part of verprolin. However, the physiological function of the homologous regions (verprolin-homology domain, VPH domain) remains unknown...
