We present the case of a 36 yr old woman with a persisting complaints of left chest pain. A chest radiograph revealed multiple left pleural thickenings. Classical exploration was negative. Thoracic surgery allowed the subtotal removal of a huge pleural tumour. The histological examination revealed a clear cell sarcoma. The literature on this extremely rare(More)
The study of the ergonomic conditions of office work with a computer screen, the study of the workstation, the nature of the tasks carried out and the knowledge of the visual possibilities of the user allow various optical corrections to be envisaged for this activity. Indications for monofocal, bifocal, trifocal and progressive lenses are envisaged.(More)
We report two recent observations of giant hemangiopericytoma of the lung, one in a 4-year-old child and another in a 65-year-old man. There were no specific clinical signs, but the radiologic appearance was rather characteristic in both cases, as were the histologic findings. Pneumonectomy was carried out, complicated in each case by rupture of the(More)
We describe a case of retinitis pigmentosa, associated with bronchiectasis, as the first sign of primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD). Only a few cases were described in the literature and the association of both diseases is not obvious at first sight, although a common ciliary dysfunction of both respiratory epithelium and photoreceptors of the retina seems to(More)
We present our experience with 18 bronchial carcinoids, two of those being of atypical histology. Mean age is 44 years, without sex preponderance. Clinical symptoms are poorly specific, with persistent cough and recurrent pneumonia as most frequent features. Carcinoid syndrome was seen in one patient. In 4 patients, the carcinoid tumor was an incidental(More)
Comparison of visual demands of work in a traditional office to those of work in an office equiped with a screen. Description of problems of vision when focusing the eye to various distances and fixing it in various directions. Range of possibilities for optical correction for work with a screen (monofocal, bifocal, progressive or for reading), specifying(More)
The etiological diagnosis of chronic thoracic pain is wide, from benign mechanical disorders to tumors. Reaching the exact diagnosis in often time consuming. Despite the availability of new techniques of imagery, a meticulous clinical history and physical examination remain mandatory. They will lead the exploration. Idiopathic intercostal neuralgia does not(More)
