Monoclonal gammopathies complicated by AL amyloidosis can mimic giant cell arteritis (GCA). We hereby present the case of a 63 year old woman in whom symptoms consistent with GCA were the first manifestations of a monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance (MGUS) associated with amyloidosis. A 63 year old woman was admitted for temporal headache, maseterine claudication, neck and shoulder stiffness. She was recently diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. On physical examination she had prominent temporal arteries, macroglosia and orthostatic hypotension...

Two interesting cases of cystic hygroma are being reported. One presented with dyspneoa and the other one with macroglosia and mediastinal cystic hygroma. The foetal chromosomal anomalies associated with cystic hygroma, intrauterine diagnosis and treatment of cystic hygroma as well as pathogenesis, classification, surgical and non-surgical management of cystic hygroma has been discussed in detail in the review of the literature.

Acromegaly is a metabolic disorder caused by increased growth hormone (GH) secretion. Common oral features are prognatism, increased interdental spaces, macroglosia, and dental mobility. However, not much is known about the periodontal status of acromegalics. The periodontal status of 16 acromegalic subjects was investigated and compared with 20 controls (similar socioeconomic profile and age). Periodontal probing, followed by the assessment of gingival overgrowth, tooth loss and mobility, and malocclusion was performed...

A generalized form of primary cutaneous amyloidosis was found in two siblings when microscopic examination was carried out on areas of scattered hypopigmentation. Multiple biopsies from different sites of the skin suggested that the pigmentary disorder was probably a process independent of the amyloidosis. One of the siblings died of interstitial pulmonary fibrosis, congenital pulmonary stenosis and diabetes mellitus. Post mortem examination of the lungs showed the presence of few amyloid deposits in the diffusely fibrotic tissue, suggesting that these were secondary to the chronic pulmonary disease...
