Management of a colostomy by irrigation is simple and effective. Five hundred and nine patients having a colostomy for rectal cancer during the last 10 years were assessed by our Rehabilitation Department as potential candidates for irrigation. Fifty-two patients were considered unsuitable and 40 refused to learn the technique. The remaining 417 (82%)(More)
A series of 1000 cases was selected, on the basis of a clinical and/or post-mortem diagnosis of cancer, out of 4927 autopsies performed at the Institute of Pathologic Anatomy and Histopathology of Turin University. The comparison between clinical and post-mortem diagnoses pointed to an overall concordance with regard to the correct identification of a(More)
From 1970 to 1988, 330 cases of bacterial meningitis were diagnosed at the Children's Hospital Regina Margherita of Turin. Neisseria meningitidis was the most frequent cause of bacterial meningitis (45%); meningitis caused by Haemophilus influenzae increased from 4% in 1970-1983 to 19% in 1984-1988, and meningitis with pathogen unknown decreased from 28% in(More)
Pigmented Spitz nevus may simulate cutaneous melanoma clinically and histopathologically. In an effort to characterize Spitz nevi using dermoscopy, we documented the dermoscopic features of a single pigmented Spitz nevus over a 6-month period. A 3-year-old boy had a brownish black papule, 3 mm in diameter, on the dorsum of the first finger of his left hand,(More)
BACKGROUND Melanocytic nevi with eccentric foci of hyperpigmentation ("Bolognia sign") can be considered as a melanoma-simulating type of acquired melanocytic nevus. We report on the morphologic changes of this type of melanocytic nevus over a 39-month period of dermoscopic follow-up. OBSERVATIONS A 5-year-old girl had a 4-mm brown papule with a(More)
The coexistence of two malignant skin tumors intermingling in the same histologic specimen is rare. We report a case of melanoma in a basal cell carcinoma collision tumor. The presence of two intermingled neoplasms was confirmed by immunohistochemistry, which showed strong positivity for S-100 and HMB-45. A review of the literature and a case analysis allow(More)
One hundred forty elderly cancer outpatients with colostomy in the authors' rehabilitation department were included in an analysis of the feasibility, effectiveness, and safety of periodic irrigation of remaining colon with lukewarm tap water with the aim of regaining full continence. Sixteen patients did not have a sufficiently long remaining bowel(More)
