Vascular Behçet's disease (BD) would keep risk of anastomotic pseudoaneurysm due to deterioration of the disease even after vascular surgery was successfully done. Therefore, it is one of the least-welcome diseases for vascular surgeons. There still exist several points on a concept and criteria of the vascular BD which not only general practitioners but also the vascular surgeons do not understand. Clinical findings strongly suspecting vascular BD are follows; saccular aneurysms without atherosclerosis developed in younger than 50-year-old patients, superior vena cava syndrome or deep vein thrombosis in bilateral legs without apparent causes, and multiple superficial thrombophlebitis, etc...

Bexarotene is a third-generation retinoid X receptor-selective retinoid that is widely used for the early treatment of advanced-stage cutaneous T-cell lymphomas. In this report, we describe a case of successful treatment of advanced primary cutaneous peripheral T-cell lymphoma not otherwise specified (PTCL-NOS) with oral bexarotene monotherapy. After the administration of oral bexarotene at a dose of 300 mg/m2 /day, all skin lesions and lymph nodes regressed, and complete remission was achieved for 1 year. Our case suggested that bexarotene monotherapy could be one of the possible therapies for the treatment of primary cutaneous PTCL-NOS...

BACKGROUND: Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a chronic inflammatory disease mediated by T cells, which manifests as reticular (white) or erosive (red) lesions, that are eventually painful. Oral lichenoid lesion (OLL) are distinguished from OLP by the presence of precipitating factors. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the presence of metallothionein, which is involved in anti-apoptotic pathways and the anti-oxidative response, could serve as a differential diagnostic for OLP and OLL...

The extensive application of titanium dioxide nanoparticles (TiO2 NPs) in the food industry arouses a debate regarding the probable risk associated with their use. Several recent studies reported that most nanoparticles (NPs) have adverse actions on the liver. The objective of this study is to examine whether Tiron plays a modulatory role against apoptotic damage induced by TiO2 NPs in rat livers. Forty rats were randomly divided into 4 groups; a control group received phosphate-buffered saline, an intoxicated group received 100 mg/kg/day of TiO2 NPs for 60 days, a treated group received 470 mg/kg/day of Tiron for the last 14 days after TiO2 NPs administration, and a Tiron group received Tiron only as previously mentioned...

REVIEW
Swapnil Patel, Alok A Bhatt
Divided by the mylohyoid muscle, the sublingual and submandibular spaces represent a relatively small part of the oral cavity, but account for a disproportionate amount of pathological processes. These entities are traditionally separated into congenital, infectious/inflammatory, vascular and neoplastic aetiologies. This article reviews the relevant anatomy, clinical highlights and distinguishing imaging features necessary for accurate characterisation. TEACHING POINTS: • The mylohyoid sling is a key anatomical landmark useful in surgical planning...

Differentiating between early malignancy and benign lesions in oral cavities is difficult using current optical tools. As has been shown in previous studies, microvascular changes in squamous epithelium can be regarded as a key marker for diagnosis. We propose the combination of structural and vascular optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging for the investigation of disease related changes. Progressive thickness changes of epithelium and the destruction of underlying lamina propria was observed during cancer development in a 4- nitroquinoline-1-oxide (4NQO) mouse model...

Saman Warnakulasuriya
Oral potentially malignant disorders (OPMDs) are conditions that precede the onset of invasive cancers of the oral cavity. The term embraces precancerous lesions and conditions referred to in earlier World Health Organization (WHO) definitions. Leukoplakia is the most common OPMD; erythroplakia, although rare, is more serious. Several variants of leukoplakia are recognized, and clinical subtyping may help determine the prognosis to a limited extent. Biopsy is essential to confirm the provisional clinical diagnosis, and timely referral to a specialist is indicated...

Background: African Americans (AA) are at high risk for hypertension (HTN) and poor blood pressure (BP) control. Persistently elevated BP contributes to cardiovascular morbidity. White matter hyperintensities (WMH) are a definable magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) marker of cerebrovascular injury linked to impairments in higher level thinking (i.e., executive functions), memory formation and speed of perceptual-motor processing. Methods: This sub-investigation evaluated neuropsychological functioning in association with WMH on brain MRIs in 23 otherwise healthy hypertensive AAs participating in an NIH-funded study of the effects of Vitamin D on BP and cardiac remodeling in AA patients 30-74 years of age with HTN and left ventricular hypertrophy...
