BACKGROUND: Sarcoidosis is a multi-system disease characterized by the presence of non-caseating epithelioid granulomas in affected tissues, including skeletal muscle. These organized collections of immune cells have important pathophysiologic action including cytokine production leading to inflammation as well as enzymatic conversion of cholecalciferol to calcitriol via 1-α hydroxylase. There are limited reports of isolated granulomatous myositis causing hypercalcemia in pediatric patients...

Obstructive jaundice caused by tuberculous lymphadenitis is a rare manifestation of tuberculosis (TB), with 15 cases having been reported in Korea. We experienced a case of obstructive jaundice caused by pericholedochal tuberculous lymphadenitis in a 30-year-old man. The patient's initial serum total bilirubin level was 21.1 mg/dL. Abdominal computed tomography revealed narrowing of the bile duct by a conglomerated soft-tissue mass involving the main portal vein. Abrupt obstruction of the common bile duct was observed on cholangiography...

SETTING: A medical centre in Taipei, Taiwan. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinicopathological and microbiological correlates of skin and soft tissue infection (SSTI) due to non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM). DESIGN: Patients with NTM SSTI identified from 1999 to 2009 were included. Histological sections of the skin biopsy specimens from these patients were reassessed. RESULTS: Among 58 patients with NTM SSTI, the most commonly isolated NTM were rapidly growing mycobacteria (RGM; n = 30), Mycobacterium marinum (n = 17) and M...

BACKGROUND: Both surgical and nonsurgical techniques, including soft tissue augmentation, are available to restore a youthful appearance to the face. Soft tissue augmentation with nonabsorbable fillers is increasingly important, as a growing number of patients are seeking aesthetic improvement without the downtime and cost of major surgical procedures. Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), an injectable implant composed of a suspension of microspheres in different media, is one such soft tissue filler...

Mycobacterium marinum is an atypical mycobacterium found in both salt and fresh water. It occasionally causes soft tissue infections after minor trauma, principally affecting the limbs. A 17-year-old male aquarium worker presented with preseptal cellulitis of his right eye, after attempting to lance a hordeolum some days previously. The condition failed to respond to antibiotics and a necrotic area developed, which subsequently required debridement. Histology of the debrided area demonstrated granulomatous inflammation which when considered with his occupation led to the diagnosis of Mycobacterium marinum--'fish-tank granuloma'...

PURPOSE: Orofacial granulomatosis (OFG) is an uncommon disease, which presents usually as a persistent swelling of the soft tissues in the orofacial region and is characterized histologically by a granulomatous inflammation. The term orofacial granulomatosis is used in the literature to describe a nonspecific granulomatous inflammation. A subset, cheilitis granulomatosa (CG), which presents clinically as persistent lip swelling, is a granulomatous inflammation of unknown origin of the lips...

OBJECTIVE: To describe tuberculosis of the intercostal lymph nodes and discuss its clinical and cytologic profile and pathogenesis. STUDY DESIGN: Fifteen cases from March 1994 to March 2000 were retrieved from our cytology records. Only clinically and therapeutically proven cases were included in the study. RESULTS: The ages of the patients ranged from 4 to 63 years. The male:female ratio was 2:1. The duration of disease at presentation ranged from one week to nine months...

AIMS: To investigate the histopathological features of the synovial lining of the knee following implantation of an artificial cruciate ligament. METHODS: Eighty two patients underwent anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction for chronic, symptomatic instability of the knee. The cruciate ligament was reconstructed with a scaffold type prosthetic ligament. All patients underwent arthroscopy at the time of cruciate reconstruction and also as a "second look" procedure at a mean 26...
