Chronic gastritis has a high incidence in adults, causing progressive destruction of glandular structures, favoring the development of gastric atrophy. The association of chronic gastritis with intestinal type metaplasia of gastric mucosa has a poor outcome as intestinal metaplasia is regarded as a precancerous lesion. Metaplasia is common in patients with(More)
Dilated cardiomyopathy is a major cause of heart failure and a major cause of morbidity and mortality. It is a multifactorial disease that includes both hereditary and acquired forms. It is estimated that around 20-35% of patients with dilated cardiomyopathy have hereditary forms. It is the third most common cause of heart failure and the most common cause(More)
INTRODUCTION Pterygium represents a triangular conjunctivo-epithelial overgrowth, proliferating from the bulbar conjunctiva and covering the cornea, causing severe vision loss.

Avascular necrosis of the femoral head is an illness with a controversial etiology, the trigger event being the suppression of blood flow to the femoral head. The disease affects mostly young adults within their third and fifth decade, the majority of the patients being men. The main risk factors are trauma, chronic alcohol consumption, smoking,(More)
INTRODUCTION The role for inflammation and fibrosis as predictive histopathological markers for renal function has been discussed in several studies. Aim of our investigation was to evaluate the clinico-pathological correlation of myofibroblasts expression as markers for initial development of fibrotic processes and macrophagic infiltration in a population(More)
Lung cancer is currently one of the major health problems, being considered one of the most common causes of death by cancer worldwide. That is why establishing as early as possible a diagnosis in order to start an appropriate therapy still a challenge. The studied group consisted of 64 patients who were investigated following the next algorithm: chest(More)
A number of 38 renal biopsies and 13 necroptic pieces removed from 51 prisoners were available for our study. From 51 cases, 21 patients were diagnosed with actual chronic glomerulonephritis, 19 patients with non-specific chronic glomerulonephritis, four patients with renal amyloidosis, and seven patients with glomerulonephritis lesions associated to(More)
Stroke is an important public health issue because it has high morbidity and mortality rates. In addition, it has one of the highest rates of disability in adults. Recent data show that macrophage system cells, especially microglial cells, are involved both in neuroprotective processes and in the neurotoxicity, depending on the type and extent of the brain(More)
Pleural effusions still represent major problem of respiratory tract pathology because of the invalidity potential of pleural involvement and because of the increasing incidence of diseases frequently accompanied by pleural effusion such as tuberculosis and malignant pleural proliferations. The retrospective study concerned 221 cases with pleural effusions(More)
The diseases of the urinary apparatus are frequently-enough inside the locked-up spaces of the penitentiaries. Among them, glomerulonephritis and pyelonephritis take a special place, by their late diagnosis and their lasting evolution. The authors clinically and paraclinically investigated a number of 214 locked-up male persons aged between 18-57 years,(More)
