Between 1981 and 1985, the authors studied 21 Tunisian patients with alpha chain disease. Twenty of 21 underwent laparotomy. According to Galian et al. six patients were classified Stage A, two Stage B, and 13 Stage C. The therapeutic regimen included the following: (1) Antibiotics: In the case of intestinal bacterial overgrowth (IBO), antibiotics selected(More)
The authors report 5 cases of chondrosarcoma of the hand brought together over a period of 20 years. The series comprises 3 men and 2 woman of average age 42 years. In two cases the tumour arose from degeneration in a preexisting lesion of Ollier's disease. Diagnosis was made on clinical and radiological criteria. Confirmation of the diagnosis by(More)
Biopsy specimens taken during exploratory laparotomy provided the material for a pathological study of 23 cases of nonsecreting immunoproliferative small intestinal disease (Mediterranean lymphomas without alpha-chain disease). The distinctive pathological feature of immunoproliferative small intestinal disease, i.e., a diffuse lymphoid infiltration, was(More)
To assess the diagnostic value of upper intestinal fiber endoscopy in primary small intestinal lymphomas observed in an underdeveloped Mediterranean country, the endoscopic records of 40 patients (Group A) offering histologic evidence of lymphoma were compared with those of 80 patients (Group B) displaying clinical findings of small intestinal disease, but(More)
The rare earth gadolinium (Gd) is used in modern industry. Solubilized DTPA Gd and DOTA Gd complexes are used as contrast media in nuclear magnetic resonance imaging. In order to determine the subcellular localization of Gd, rats were injected intraperitoneally with Gd nitrate. Two microanalytic methods, ion microanalysis and electron microprobe, enabled(More)
A 21-year-old patient presented with an aggressive lesion of the left tibia associated to lymph nodes and lung metastasis. Histological examination revealed a high grade spindle cell sarcoma involving some areas of cytokeratine positive cells. Ultrastructural examination showed the presence of epithelial features in the sarcomatoid cells. The diagnosis of(More)
Michelin tire syndrome is a rare syndrome characterized by excessive folding of the skin. The diagnosis is mainly clinical. It has been found to be associated with noncutaneous anomalies, and probably reflects multiple underlying disorders. We report two siblings with Michelin tire syndrome, a 5-year-old boy and his sister both of whom had marked skin folds(More)
Three different tumour-like lesions within the infrapatellar fat pad, an osteochondroma, a localised pigmented villonodular synovitis and a synovial cyst are reported. The osteochondroma and the pigmented villonodular synovitis were treated by marginal excision, and the synovial cyst was resected using arthroscopy.
Background: Primary non-hodgkin lymphoma of the larynx is a rare entity accounting for 1% of laryngeal tumors. Fewer than 100 cases have been reported in the literature. Case presentation: A 52-year-old man, presented with a two-month history of dysphonia. Nasofibroscopy showed left submucosal bulging of the laryngeal supraglottic floor. Cervical computed(More)
