#1
O Dincel, C Bayraktar
OBJECTIVES: Our aim was to investigate platelets (PLT) and their indices - mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW) and plateletcrit (PCT) - in the differential diagnosis of benign and malignant thyroid disorders. BACKGROUND: Platelet and platelet indices recently started to be defined as an useful clinical marker in cancer patients. Their higher reproducibility rates and low cost provide them a wide range of usage. MATERIAL AND METHODS: One-hundred and sixty patients were divided into three groups retrospectively...

Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is a major cause of end-stage renal disease throughout the world in both developed and developing countries. This review briefly introduces the characteristic pathological changes of DN and Tervaert pathological classification, which divides DN into four classifications according to glomerular lesions, along with a separate scoring system for tubular, interstitial, and vascular lesions. Given the heterogeneity of the renal lesions and the complex mechanism underlying diabetic nephropathy, Tervaert classification has both significance and controversies in the guidance of diagnosis and prognosis...

OBJECTIVE: Adult liver Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is an extremely rare desease. This paper reports a 40 years old male patient who was diagnosed as liver LCH though ultrasound-guided liver biopsy. The initial Fluorrine-18- fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/ computed tomography ((18)F-FDG PET/CT) showed multiple nodular low-density lesions in liver without obvious elevated (18)F-FDG uptake. Four years later, the follow-up (18)F-FDG PET/CT showed the liver multiple lesions with slightly elevated (18)F-FDG uptake...

REVIEW
Michael I Liontiris, Elias E Mazokopakis
Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) is a chronic autoimmune thyroid disease caused by an interaction between genetic factors and environmental conditions, both of which are yet to be fully understood. The management of HT depends on its clinical manifestations, commonly including diffuse or nodular goiter with euthyroidism, subclinical hypothyroidism and permanent hypothyroidism. However, in most cases of patients with HT, lifelong levothyroxine substitution is required. The additional role of diet for the management of HT is usually overlooked...

BACKGROUND: Focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) is the second most common benign hepatic tumor and is very rarely complicated by hemorrhage or rupture. Although thought to be extremely rare, there have been several reports of hemorrhage caused by ruptured FNH. Herein, we report the case of a patient with ruptured FNH, who subsequently developed hemorrhage during follow-up. CASE PRESENTATION: A 32-year-old man was admitted to our department for an asymptomatic hepatic tumor in segments 4 and 5 (S4/5), which measured 8 cm in diameter and observed to project from the liver...

We report a case with suggestive antiprogrammed death-1 inhibitor-related pneumonitis in an endometrial cancer patient. This case presented with fever and cough after three dosages of nivolumab. Computed tomography initially showed centrilobular nodularities in a unilateral lung, which was compatible with aspiration pneumonia. However, diffuse ground-glass opacities (GGO) rapidly developed in the unilateral lung over 4 days despite the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics. Development of GGO was considered to be related to a nivolumab-mediated immune reaction...

A jejunal nodular mass was identified in an aging rat. Histologically, the boundaries between the lesion and surrounding normal tissue as well as between the inner circular muscle and outer longitudinal muscle were indistinct. The lesion consisted of abundant eosinophilic matrix and cells with a large round to oval nucleus and indistinct cytoplasm. There was no characteristic proliferating pattern, nuclear polymorphism and a low mitotic figure count. Masson's trichrome stain revealed that the intestinal smooth muscles were replaced by the abundant collagen fiber...

In this study, we report our experiences on the role of transplantation in 2 patients with large liver tumors in the setting of Abernethy malformation. Patient 1 was a 17-year-old boy who was referred for hepatic masses and recurrent hepatic encephalopathy episodes. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed 2 large tumors (4 and 8 cm) in the liver. The portal vein drained directly into the vena cava. Core biopsy of the larger mass revealed fibrosis and regenerative hyperplasia. There were hyperintense signals in the T1-weighted images in the globus pallidus...

Propranolol was first used in 2008 to treat hemangioma; its efficacy and safety have since changed the classical treatment indications. Infantile hepatic hemangioma presents as a spectrum of clinical conditions varying from simple asymptomatic lesions to lethal complications. Tufted hemangioma and Kaposiform hemangioendothelioma are congenital vascular tumors that lead to Kasabach-Merritt syndrome. Hemangiomas, like pure arteriovenous malformations, can cause hyperdynamic heart failure, and diffuse nodular-type hemangiomas can present with hypothyroidism...

BACKGROUND: Current understanding of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated pulmonary cryptococcosis (PC) is largely based on studies performed about 2 decades ago which reported that the most common findings on chest radiograph were diffuse interstitial infiltrates. Few studies are available regarding the computed tomography (CT) findings. The aim of this study was to characterize chest CT features of HIV-associated PC. METHODS: HIV patients with cryptococccal infection and pulmonary abnormalities on Chest CT between September 2010 and May 2016 in the Second Affiliated Hospital of the Southeast University were retrospectively analyzed...

Despite advances in diagnosis and treatment, infective endocarditis still shows considerable morbidity and mortality rates. The dermatological examination in patients with suspected infective endocarditis may prove very useful, as it might reveal suggestive abnormalities of this disease, such as Osler's nodes and Janeway lesions. Osler's nodes are painful, purple nodular lesions, usually found on the tips of fingers and toes. Janeway lesions, in turn, are painless erythematous macules that usually affect palms and soles...

Steatocystoma multiplex is a rare genetic disorder characterized by the presence of hamartomatous malformations at the junction of the pilosebaceous duct. It consists of encapsulated cystic lesions in the dermis, with adjacent sebaceous gland. When associated with inflammation, resembling hidradenitis, it is called steatocystoma multiplex suppurativa, a condition rarely reported. This is the first case of steatocystoma multiplex suppurativa reported in the Brazilian literature. Female patient, 23 years old, with papular and nodular cystic lesions that started in the armpits and groin, later spreading to the trunk, lower limbs, anticubital fossa, face and scalp...

An oral lesion as the first clinical presentation of sarcoidosis is extremely rare. We present the case of a 39-year-old woman who was referred to the oral and maxillofacial surgery department with a persistent asymptomatic nodular lesion in the hard palate. This was located adjacent to a grossly carious upper first molar and a provisional diagnosis of chronic periapical granuloma was made. An incisional biopsy of the lesion was carried out, which unexpectedly revealed the presence of a non-caseating granulomatous inflammatory reaction...

AIM: The most ubiquitous chest diagnostic method is the chest radiograph. A common radiographic finding, quite often incidental, is the nodular pulmonary lesion. The detection of small lesions out of complex parenchymal structure is a daily clinical challenge. In this study, we investigate the efficacy of the computer-aided detection (CAD) software package SoftView™ 2.4A for bone suppression and OnGuard™ 5.2 (Riverain Technologies, Miamisburg, OH, USA) for automated detection of pulmonary nodules in chest radiographs...

Endocrine mucin-producing sweat gland carcinoma (EMPSGC) is a rare adnexal tumor of the skin with low-grade cytological features and neuroendocrine differentiation. It has a predilection for the skin of the eyelid, but has also been reported in the face and rarely extra-facial locations. The tumor is seen more frequently in women and on average affects the elderly. It is histologically and immunohistochemically analogous to solid papillary carcinoma of the breast/endocrine ductal carcinoma in situ with a nodular, solid, papillary, and/or cribriforming architecture, neuroendocrine differentiation, and mucin production...
