BACKGROUND: This study reports two cases of conjunctival granuloma with necrosis caused by an exposed suture in the upper palpebral conjunctiva masquerading as ocular surface squamous neoplasia. CASE PRESENTATION: Two patients presented with chronic conjunctival ulcerative and granulomatous lesions on the superior bulbar conjunctiva that repeatedly recurred after the mass was removed. The pathologic findings revealed the absence of malignant cells and presence of many lymphocytes, plasma cells, and histiocytes...

We report an unusual case of systemic anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), ALK positive with leukemic involvement in a 57-year-old woman. The patient presented with a fulminant respiratory infection unresponsive to treatment requiring intensive care and ventilatory support. The CT scan demonstrated mediastinal and bilateral lymphadenopathy. On peripheral smear a few atypical lymphocytes were visualized. Based on the increasing number of atypical lymphocytes in the daily peripheral bloodsmears, the diagnosis ALCL was suggested...

BACKGROUND: In adulthood, autoimmune diabetes can present as non-insulin-requiring diabetes, termed as 'latent autoimmune diabetes in adults' (LADA). In this study, we investigated established type 1 diabetes (T1D) and type 2 diabetes (T2D) genetic loci in a large cohort of LADA cases to assess where LADA is situated relative to these two well-characterized, classic forms of diabetes. METHODS: We tested the association of T1D and T2D GWAS-implicated loci in 978 LADA cases and 1057 non-diabetic controls of European ancestry using a linear mixed model...

Wilson disease - can present with such a variety of psychiatric and cognitive symptoms that it has been named the "great masquerader." Symptoms may include cognitive deficits, impairment of executive function, mood disturbance or psychosis. These impairments may occur in different stages of the disease and with varying intensity in individual patients. This chapter reviews the literature and authors' clinical experiences of the assessment, mechanism, and prevalence of cognitive and psychiatric pathology occurring in Wilson disease...

PURPOSE: To describe a proportion of uveitis and to analyse differences between immune-related uveitis and infectious uveitis groups. METHODS: A retrospective study of 458 uveitis patients were categorized into immune-related uveitis, infectious uveitis, masquerade, and undetermined groups. The pattern of inflammation was described. Subgroup analysis was performed to compare pattern differences between immune-related uveitis and infectious uveitis groups. RESULTS: The most common location of inflammation was the anterior eye segment...

Familial amyloid cardiomyopathy is a challenging condition that mimics many other diseases, particularly in patients with pronounced neurological presentations and unexplained or equivocal cardiac abnormalities. In this case, a 57-year-old man was admitted for outpatient cardiological evaluation of progressive right heart failure and limb paraesthesias. The patient presented with hypertension, chronic Guillain-Barre syndrome, and sick sinus syndrome. Transthoracic echocardiograms showed a thickened ventricular wall and enlarged atrium...

Primary amyloidosis of the urinary bladder is a rare disease, with only approximately 200 cases reported in the literature. We herein present a case of amyloidosis of the urinary bladder with painful gross hematuria. Pelvic Computed Tomography showed uneven thickening of the bladder wall suspicious of neoplastic lesion. Cystoscopy and transurethral resection were performed. Congo-red staining confirmed amyloidosis it was. Postoperative recovery was good and close follow-up was recommended after discharged. Amyloidosis is usually benign, while it can masquerade as a malignancy...

Masquerade syndromes present to uveitis clinics due to the appearance of inflammatory signs and chronic symptoms that are not responsive to conventional treatment. They are frequently misdiagnosed and treated as refractory inflammatory conditions, which delays appropriate diagnosis and management. This review of literature focuses on the commonly encountered masquerade syndromes and discusses the role of multimodal imaging in addressing these complex clinical presentations. We review the conventional imaging techniques for these patients and discuss emerging technological advances that may help in establishing a diagnosis...

Isolated angitis of the central nervous system (IACNS)/primary angitis of central nervous system vasculitis (PACNS) is an uncommon vascular disease, sparingly presenting as an isolated inflammatory lesion on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The disease usually manifests as a long-drawn and progressive ischemic event. Delay in diagnosis due to focal nature of the lesion also contributes to the poor prognosis as the dismal natural history and immunosuppressive therapy. To date, only a few cases with tumor-like isolated angitis of CNS have been reported with clear and definitive diagnostic workup...

Angiomyolipoma with epithelial cysts (AMLEC) is a very uncommon renal tumor. AMLEC has a characteristic histological appearance and immunohistochemical staining pattern, knowledge of which should preclude misdiagnosis by pathologists. We present a rare case of an AMLEC which was suspected to be a cystic renal cell carcinoma radiologically. We describe the characteristic immunological staining pattern and ultrastructural features of this lesion and discuss the potential differential diagnoses.

Khalid Hamid Changal, Saad Saleem, Ghulam Ghous
Rectus sheath haematoma is a rare cause of abdominal pain. It can be easily confused for other causes of acute abdomen and may even lead to unnecessary laparotomies. Our patient has the rectus sheath haematoma because of violent coughing and on presentation had no obvious clinical sign pointing to the same. Diagnosis was made by a CT scan of the abdomen, and patient was treated conservatively. Rectus sheath haematomas are usually present on the posterior aspect of the rectus muscles and thus may not be clinically appreciable...

A 78 year old female presented to the Urology clinic with a large, symptomatic left-sided abdominal cyst for many years believed to be renal in etiology and had been percutaneously drained three times prior with persistent regrowth. The patient underwent laparoscopic resection of this mass which proved to be a completely distinct retroperitoneal cystic structure and not renal in nature. Pathological analysis ultimately revealed a rare occurrence: a benign retroperitoneal Müllerian serous cystadenoma. To our knowledge, this is the first report of such an entity 'disguised' as a renal cyst...

Rhinosporidiosis, though reported from several countries, has the highest incidence in India (notably South India) and Sri Lanka, with most cases presenting as nasal polyps. Nasopharynx and palpebral conjunctiva account for 85% of the sites. Other mucosal sites affected are oropharynx, larynx, rectum and external genitalia. Disseminated rhinosporidiosis is usually associated with mucosal lesions. Rhinosporidiosis affecting skin, subcutaneous tissue and bone are uncommon. Herein we report a rare case of disseminated rhinosporidiosis mimicking a soft tissue sarcoma...

Allergy reactions are the most common immunological diseases and represent one of the most widespread and fast growing chronic human health problems among people over 15 years of age in developed countries. As populations get older worldwide, allergy manifestations in aged persons will occur more often in the future. To date, there has been much more studies on allergies in children than in adults. As the population ages, clinicians must be prepared to meet all the elderly's health care needs, including these new and emerging health issue...

An inverted left atrial appendage after cardiac surgery is a rare finding and can be misinterpreted as a thrombus, mass, or vegetation. We report a case where intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography assisted in making an accurate diagnosis.
