Amyloidosis is an abnormal extracellular deposit, which can occur in several tissues. The mechanism is not clearly defined. In systemic amyloidosis, all the organs can be infiltrated, but amyloid goiter as the initial manifestation of systemic amyloidosis is an exceedingly rare condition. We report a rare case of a patient who presented an amyloid goiter as(More)
Epithelioid hemangioma of bone is a rare benign vascular lesion. Since its first description by Rosai in 1979 about thirty cases have been reported. We report two new cases diagnosed in patients aged 21 and 7 years. Both patients had multiple lesions on the legs. Bone pain was the main symptom. Routine laboratories studies were unremarkable. Bon radiographs(More)
Sclerosing hemangioma of the lung is a rare lesion described for the first time in 1956 by Liebow. We report a case in a 45 year-old woman who was admitted for exploration of chronic cough. The chest x-ray revealed a round opacity, well delimited in the left pulmonary parenchyma. Surgical resection enabled the histopathological diagnosis of sclerosing(More)
Most masses encountered within the scrotal sac are neoplastic and occur within the testis; however a subset (2-3%) of these tumours is extra-testicular and usually arises from paratesticular tissue. Although uncommon, these tumours have a high incidence of malignancy reaching 30%, mainly represented by sarcomas (90%). Tumours occurring in the paratesticular(More)
We describe for the first time a case of idiopathic portal hypertension (IPH) in a 31 year old patient with coeliac disease (CD). She had splenomegaly, pancytopenia and an unexplained portal hypertension in the absence of any histological abnormalities of the liver. The diagnosis of coeliac disease was based on histological and serological data. Treatment(More)
The authors report a clinicopathological case of non-Hodgkin's malignant lymphoma of the testis in a 66-year-old man. The diagnosis was established on a right orchidectomy specimen. Conventional histopathological examination and immunohistochemistry concluded on diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Staging showed involvement of Waldeyer's ring and the presence of(More)
A 52-year-old Tunisian patient had fever, impaired health and several opportunistic infections (Campylobacter jejuni, Mycobacterium hominis, Herpes virus, Giardia intestinalis, Vibrio metschnikovii). Lymphocytopenia was noted (348/mm3; CD4+: 2.2%; CD4+/CD8+: 0.1). Polymerase chain rection search for HIV was negative in serum and in tumor tissue. Diagnosis(More)
