Carcinoma arising in lingual thyroid is an extremely rare entity accounting for only 1% of all reported ectopic thyroids. Here, we report a case of carcinoma arising in lingual thyroid, which has been successfully managed by transoral resection and bilateral neck dissections. A lingual mass 4-cm in diameter with calcification was incidentally detected by computed tomography at medical check-up. No thyroid tissue was observed in normal position. Ultrasound examination showed bilateral multiple lymphadenopathies...

Schwannomas are uncommon neoplasms that arise from Schwann cells of the neural sheath. Gastrointestinal schwannomas are rare among mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract, and only a few cases have been reported to date. Duodenal schwannomas are usually discovered incidentally and achieving a preoperative diagnosis is difficult. Schwannomas can be distinguished from other subepithelial tumors on endoscopic ultrasonography; however, any typical endosonographic features of duodenal schwannomas have not been reported due to the rarity of these tumors...

PURPOSE: Bariatric surgery is being safely performed in elderly patients. However, current recommendations lack precise indications for bariatric surgery and fail to define an upper age limit for surgical procedure, leaving the field wide open to case by case assessment according to patient's physiological age and benefit-to-risk balance. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to evaluate the quality of life of obese patients older than 60 years one year after bariatric surgery, and to compare the variation of their nutritional parameters to those of matched younger patients...

Treatment of aneurysmal lesions in the context of coarctation of the aorta (CoA) is a challenging task and these lesions are rare in children. An 11-year-old boy was incidentally diagnosed with native CoA and concomitant complex aneurysmal lesions during medical check-up for arterial hypertension. Pre-catheterization imaging was performed with computed tomography (CT), which showed a mild CoA and two native aneurysms that were juxtaposed to the origin of the left subclavian artery. For planning and guidance of the catheter procedure, image fusion software was used with an overlay from pre-registered three-dimensional reconstruction images on live fluoroscopy...

BACKGROUND: Early detection examinations take place from birth to the age of 6 years. The youth screening is a continuation of the screening of the "U-series" and should be carried out between the age of 12-15 and 16-17, respectively. Afterwards adolescent girls have good contact with a gynecologist, but adolescent boys usually do not have a medical contact person who they can trust in. MATERIALS AND METHODS: To evaluate the state of knowledge on boys' health, a 15-item comprehensive knowledge survey was conducted among ninth grade students at 7 secondary schools (Gymnasien) in North Rhine-Westphalia...

Of the numerous aspects involved in the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of cervical uterine precursor lesions, epidemiology, virology, cytology, human papillomavirus (HPV) testing, and diagnostic algorithms for equivocal and HPV-positive findings are important for pathologists. Cytology will continue to be used as a preventive medical check-up in young women, while HPV-based screening is suggested for older women. HPV screening has yielded a significant reduction in cancer precursors and invasive cervical carcinoma in numerous studies...
