INTRODUCTION Pterygium represents a triangular conjunctivo-epithelial overgrowth, proliferating from the bulbar conjunctiva and covering the cornea, causing severe vision loss. It is an abnormal growth and differentiation of the conjunctive epithelial structures of the corneal limbus. Chronic exposures to solar ultraviolet radiation, heat and dust, as well(More)
INTRODUCTION Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common and most serious malignancies worldwide. Its incidence has increased by more than 200 000 in 2008, both in men and in women. Although CRC is a well-studied malignancy which has a slow progression, known risk factors and pre-neoplastic lesions that can be detected and treated, its incidence is on(More)
The angiogenesis is a complex process, incompletely understood, regulated by various stimulating and inhibiting angiogenic factors. In the present study, we proposed to evaluate the angiogenic changes that occur in the cases with recurrent pregnancy loss comparing with a control group represented by women with requested abortion. The evaluation of the(More)
The frequency of mesenchymal breast tumors is very low, being represented mostly by tumors with biphasic proliferation (phyllodes tumors) and less by other types of non-epithelial tumors. From clinical point of view, phyllodes tumors (PT) can mimic a breast carcinoma. Therefore, the preoperative diagnosis by cytological examination on material obtained by(More)
Eosinophils of the gastrointestinal tract are involved in the host immune response that occurs in the presence of the pathogens in the digestive lumen, taking part in maintaining the homeostasis of the gastrointestinal epithelium. Their involvement in inflammatory processes of chronic gastritis is less known. In our study, we identified the presence of(More)
Chondrosarcoma is a malignancy of the mesenchymal tissue derived from transformed cells that produce the cartilage matrix. In the neck area, it represents less than 0.5% of malignant tumor pathology. Chondrosarcoma of the hyoid bone is extremely rare, only 20 cases having been published so far (PubMed 2014). We present the case of a 30-year-old patient from(More)
The present paper reports on a Q fever outbreak of 149 cases in a municipal slaughter house focus. The diagnosis was established by clinical, epidemiological, radiologic and laboratory investigations. The route of transmission was air-borne from the sick animals (not detected at the veterinary control) to man. A closer cooperation is recommended between the(More)
Synchronous gastric tumors, and, especially the presence of an adenocarcinoma and gastrointestinal stromal tumors, are less frequent. We present the case of a 75-year-old patient, with no gastrointestinal pathology in the medical history, who was admitted for marked asthenia, nausea, coffee grounds vomiting, inappetence, dizziness, weight loss and(More)
Oropharyngeal cancer, and especially squamous cell carcinoma, is one of the most common cancers worldwide, and its incidence is increasing, with the palatine tonsil being one of the main locations. The etiopathogenic factors, together with its location as well as the available immunohistochemical methods, make this type of cancer an accessible one in terms(More)
