BACKGROUND Human neurocysticercosis (NC) is caused by Taenia solium larvae lodged in the central nervous system. NC is clinically heterogeneous, ranging from asymptomatic infection to severely incapacitating and even fatal presentations. Although NC affects adults and children, age-related factors have not been thoroughly studied. METHODS We describe and(More)

We present a case of an infant with severe macroglossia, hypoglycaemia and inguinal hernia associated with hepatoblastoma (Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome) in which a laryngeal mask airway (LMA) was useful to secure the airway during central line insertion. Carbon dioxide monitoring through LMA proved effective to assess airway patency during positioning for(More)
Morphological examination of spermatozoa remains a valuable tool for determining the quality of feline sperm for cryopreservation and/or for use in artificial insemination. Numerous staining techniques have been employed for feline sperm assessment, and several variations have also been reported. Forty-eight domestic cats were castrated and epididymal sperm(More)
e21526 Background: Primary sarcomas of the breast (PBS) are a heterogeneous group of tumors from stromal breast, infrequent (0.1% of BC). Diagnosis and treatment is unclear. We analyzed all cases of PBS from BC diagnosed at our institution from 2004 to 2008. METHODS Histopathological specimens of PBS were reviewed (excluded phylloides, metaplastic and(More)
Intraluminal duodenal diverticulum (IDD) is a rare congenital anomaly, which usually causes symptoms in adulthood. We report a 39-year-old woman, who presented several episodes of upper gastrointestinal bleeding and who was successfully treated with surgery. The clinical presentation, diagnosis and treatment of the 56 cases published in the English and(More)
The effect of cold storage of testes and epididymides at 4 °C for 12 h on the cryopreservation capacity of epididymal feline sperm was evaluated. Ten domestic cats were castrated, and testes and epididymides collected. Specimens were randomly assigned to two groups: in Group A, epididymal samples were immediately processed and frozen in 0.25-ml straws; in(More)
