INTRODUCTION: Glandular lesions of the female genital tract (FGT) are quite uncommon compared to squamous lesions. Their cytological diagnosis is difficult because of their architectural and cytological complexity, as well as the lack of experience of many cytopathologists in this field. The aim of this study was to determine the significance of Papanicolaou (Pap) smears in the diagnosis of glandular FGT lesions. METHODOLOGY: All Pap smears reported during the period of January 2012 to December 2013 were retrieved...

INTRODUCTION: Giant cell tumor (GCT) or osteoclastoma is an osteolytic, mostly benign but locally aggressive tumor occurring in young adults at the epiphysis. Area of predilection is mainly long bones (85-90%). 4% of GCT are also found in iliac bone, spine and only 2% in hand (of which GCT phalanges are more common than metacarpal). GCT of metatarsal is a very rare occurrence with very few cases being reported so far. We report a case of GCT 1(st) metatarsal in a 40-year-old male which is a very rare entity...

Artificial bone graft substitutes, such as Calcibon, are becoming increasingly interesting as they do not cause donor site morbidity which is an advantage compared to autologous bone grafts. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and potential complications associated with the use of Calcibon. Twenty-seven patients with benign and low-grade malignant bone tumors were treated with curettage and refilling of the bony cavity. Based on the radiological classification system of Neer, these lesions only comprised Grade I lesions, describing cysts that only require curettage and filling, but no additional treatment...

We herein report the case of a patient demonstrating a lung abscess with acute empyema which improved after performing pnemumonotomy and lung abscess drainage. A 60-year-old male was referred to our hospital to receive treatment for a lung abscess with acute empyema. At surgery, the lung parenchyma was slightly torn with pus leakage. After drainage of lung abscess by enlarging the injured part, curettage in the thoracic cavity and decortication were performed. The postoperative course was uneventful. Direct drainage of an abscess into the thoracic cavity is thought to be a choice for the treatment of lung abscesses...

Avascular necrosis (AVN) of the capitate is a rare clinical entity for which a variety of treatment options have been described, ranging from immobilization to microvascular bone transfer. Outcomes following medial femoral condyle corticocancellous free flap reconstruction have not been reported for this specific pathology. We present the case of a 16-year-old girl with posttraumatic capitate AVN who was treated with curettage and medial femoral condyle corticocancellous vascularized bone grafting. At 18 months after surgery, the patient remains pain-free and had resumed all activities including lifeguarding by 6 months after surgery...

Polyps of the lower reproductive tract are found in 7.8-50% of women. It has been hypothesized that cytogenetic modifications on chromosomes 6, 7 and 12 as well as epigenetic factors involving enzyme and metabolic activities may cause polyps to develop. Cervical polyps found in 2-5% of cases are of low clinical significance and can cause, although rarely, post coital bleedings. Cervical polyps grow during pregnancy and mucorrhoea. Trans vaginal ultrasound (TVU) provides an excellent diagnostic technique to diagnose the size and the anatomic location of endometrial polyps (EPs)...
