Two cases of peripheral T-cell lymphoma, characterized by hepatosplenic presentation and gamma/delta T-cell receptor phenotype on malignant cells, are reported. Little is known about the chromosomal changes in these peculiar lymphomas. We report the cytogenetic analysis of these two patients. Isochromosome 7q and trisomy 8 were observed. These abnormalities(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the efficiency of fluorine-18 fluoro-2-deoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) in the characterisation and primary staging of suspicious renal masses, in comparison with computed tomography, the current standard imaging modality. Fifty-three FDG PET studies were performed within the framework of a(More)
Several animal models of vestibular deficits that mimic the human pathology phenotype have previously been developed to correlate the degree of vestibular injury to cognate vestibular deficits in a time-dependent manner. Sodium arsanilate is one of the most commonly used substances for chemical vestibular lesioning, but it is not well described in the(More)
BACKGROUND Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is a form of autoimmune bullous disease commonly seen in adults but rare amongst children. Only a few cases have been described in children after vaccination. This article reports a new case of BP that occurred in an infant after a first vaccination. PATIENTS AND METHODS A 3-month-old girl presented a bullous eruption 2(More)
Endometriosis frequently affects women with genital activity and exceptionally involves the urinary tract, and the ureter in particular. From a case report of a female consulting for renal colic pain related to an intrinsic-type pelvic ureteral endometriosis, we report the difficulty in diagnosing this pseudotumoral obstruction and finding therapeutic(More)
Voriconazole is a treatment for severe fungal infections. Prolonged voriconazole therapy may induce skin reactions, with 1% of severe photosensitivity accidents. Recently the imputability of voriconazole in skin carcinogenesis has been suggested. This report concerns a 55-year-old man suffering from pulmonary aspergillosis who presented a phototoxic(More)
We describe the main characteristics and treatment of urogenital manifestations in patients with Wegener granulomatosis (WG). We conducted a retrospective review of the charts of 11 patients with WG. All patients were men, and their median age at WG diagnosis was 53 years (range, 21-70 yr). Urogenital involvement was present at onset of WG in 9 cases (81%),(More)
Melanoma-associated retinopathy (MAR) is a rare autoimmune syndrome in patients with melanoma characterized by visual disorders. MAR is induced by the degeneration of bipolar cells of the retina and the presence of serum autoantibodies against retina proteins. Ipilimumab, an anti-cytotoxic T lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 antibody, improves survival in(More)
