Per Hedén, Birgit Stark
Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) is a distinct type of T-cell lymphoma, developing around implants, that can occur 2 to 25 years (median 8 years) post-implantation. Most patients present with a swelling of the breast, which is usually associated with pain and fluid collecting around the implant. Less commonly, a lump in the breast and/or in the axilla can be present. A periprosthetic fluid collection (> 1 year post-implantation) should be investigated with ultrasound and fine needle aspiration...

A novel process for generating agglomerates of API and polymer by swelling the polymer in a water/organic mixture has been developed to address formulation issues resulting from a water sensitive, high drug load active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) with poor powder properties. Initially, the API is dissolved in water, following which hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) is added, resulting in the imbibing of water, along with the dissolved API, into the HPMC matrix. The addition of acetone and isopropyl acetate (anti-solvents) then causes the API to crystallize inside and on the surface of HPMC agglomerates...

Acute knee pain is a frequently encountered problem in the clinical settings. In 2003, American Orthopedic Association recorded that 19.4 million people visited a physician because of a knee problem. Knee pain due to injuries is increasing even among the older population, as a greater number of persons are participating in recreational activities. The quadriceps tendon rupture is not a common condition among acute causes of knee pain. However, it can be quite debilitating. The usual clinical presentation includes a middle-aged person presenting with a history of fall accompanied by swelling and inability to extend the knee...

Neonatal compartment syndrome is rare. There are multiple proposed etiologies, including infection, vascular insult, and mechanical compression. Much like compartment syndrome in adults, delayed surgical intervention for neonatal compartment syndrome can have catastrophic results. The authors present a unique case of a neonate who presented with left forearm and hand swelling and skin ulceration after vaginal delivery. Findings from the evaluation for vascular injury, infection, and hypercoagulability were normal...

Background Fixed drug eruptions (FDE) are characterized by recurrent, usually solitary erythematous or dark red macular, plaque or bullous lesions, all at the same site. Among the first choices for antidotal treatment in mercury exposure, 2,3-dimercapto-1-propanesulfonic acid (DMPS) is generally a drug with a low incidence of side effects. FDE due to DMPS was not detected in our literature research and so we aimed to present this rare case. Case Report Forty-eight-year-old male patient, gunpowder and explosives factory worker, was admitted to our hospital because of mercury exposure and we started DMPS treatment...

Pediatric penile pain is an uncommon complaint and is associated with a wide differential diagnosis including infectious, inflammatory, traumatic, and idiopathic conditions. Penile fractures, anatomically known as rupture of the corpus cavernosum, are almost exclusively reported in sexually mature patients and usually involve forceful manipulation during sexual activity. Rupture of the corpus cavernosum is a true urologic emergency. Failure to recognize and treat rupture of the corpus cavernosum has been associated with residual penile angulation, persistent hematoma, abscess, erectile dysfunction, and fibrosis...

Aims The introduction of skin biopsies to examine small nerve fiber morphology together with functional measures such as quantitative sensory testing (QST) has led to an improvement in diagnosing patients with small fiber neuropathy (SFN). Quantification of intraepidermal nerve fiber density (IENFD) is an important measure in SFN. However, the relationship between structure and function is not straightforward and the morphological and functional fiber characteristics are still unclear. This study aimed to combine structural and functional measurements to improve the diagnosis of distal symmetric polyneuropathy and small fiber involvement...

Small-cell carcinoma of the ovary, hypercalcemic type (SCCOHT) is a rare but highly undifferentiated, aggressive malignancy that primarily affects young women. Due to its early onset, unclear familial history and vague presenting symptoms, most SCCOHT patients present late with advanced disease. The prognosis is extremely poor, with <10% disease-free survival for advanced stages. Although several therapeutic regimens have been proposed, to date there is no consensus on the optimal strategy. Here, we describe a successful case of advanced-stage SCCOHT of the left ovary treated with cytoreductive surgery, semi-intense chemotherapy, high-dose consolidative chemotherapy, autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and pelvic radiation with long-term survival...
