BACKGROUND: Trigeminal neuralgia is one of the most common causes of facial pain with the highest incidence in individuals > 60 years old. Despite the proven efficacy and safety of microvascular decompression (MVD) for the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia, some physicians are reluctant to perform the procedure in elderly patients because of potential complications. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In the present study, we analyze the outcome of MVDs performed over a 10-year period in elderly patients and compare the results with those obtained in younger patients...

BACKGROUND: breast metaplastic carcinomas are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms that exhibit a poor prognosis compared with invasive ductal carcinoma. Correspond less than 1% of all malignant neoplasms of the mammary gland. They usually present as high-grade tumors with a lower rate of lymph node metastases and decreased expression of estrogen and progesterone receptors and Her2 and increased expression of Her1 and Ki-67. CLINICAL CASE: we report a 52 year old woman with a breast carcinosarcoma presented with a left breast tumor fungated, ulcerated, polypoid and 18 cm in major diameter with lymph node metastases at diagnosis...

OBJECTIVE: To present a patient with secondary parathyromatosis, a rare complication of parathyroidectomy, and to discuss issues currently pertinent to its diagnosis and management. METHODS: Data were derived from clinical and pathologic observations obtained during patient care. RESULTS: The index patient developed intractable hyperparathyroidism and hypercalcemia that has persisted after 4 surgical procedures and has remained largely resistant to medication, albeit with partial amelioration with combined bisphosphonate and cinacalcet...

SESSION TYPE: Critical Care Global Case Report PostersPRESENTED ON: Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PMINTRODUCTION: The incidence of cardiac involvement among patients with hydatid disease is 0.5-3%, and a pericardial site of implantation is even less common [3]. Severe complications impose a prompt diagnosis and treatment in ED. The management is very critical and time-dependent if the patient develops an anaphylactic shock with cardiopulmonary arrest risk. We present a rare case of multiple pericardial hydatid cysts that resulted in anaphylactic shock...

Between 2007-2008, epidemic episodes of aseptic meningitis occurred in Romania. Most important strains isolated were Echoviruses. A commercial kit for rapid molecular detection of aetiological agents of aseptic meningitis was tested. The introduction of the molecular tests in clinical use is important by the efficient decision-making concerning the treatment.

BACKGROUND: The pheochromocytoma is a catecholamine secreting tumour derived from chromaffin cells of the sympathetic nervous system. Eighty to eighty-five percent of these tumours are localized in the adrenal medulla. When pheocromocytomas are found outside the adrenal gland they are referred to as extra-adrenal pheochromocytomas or paragangliomas. The diagnosis is confirmed by elevation of catecholamines and the metanephrines in blood plasma and urine. Localization of the tumour should be done following biochemical diagnosis by means of CT scan and/or MRI...

OBJECTIVE: Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) surgical treatment with microvascular decompression is highly effective and safe, but for a percentage of patients who undergo this procedure, no vascular compression is found. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term efficacy with trigeminal root compression of the trigeminal nerve in patients with TN refractory to medical treatment who underwent neurosurgical management by a retrosigmoid approach of the cerebellopontine angle and were found to be negative for vascular compression...

INTRODUCTION: Vasoconstriction is a major pathophysiologic finding in preeclampsia due to hyperactivity of the sympathetic nervous system and a consequent increase in concentration of plasmatic catecholamine. Thus, vasodilatation produced by secondary sympathetic block to lumbar epidural blockade favors control of high blood pressure in patients with severe preeclampsia. OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to evaluate whether lumbar epidural blockade with bupivacaine 0...
