Numerous materials have been used over the years for vocal fold augmentation. Early use of bioreactive compounds, such as paraffin, gave way to relatively inert substances, such as Teflon. More recently biocompatible materials, such as collagen and autologous fat, have gained wider acceptance. Autologous fat, in particular, is an easily obtainable source(More)
Leydig cell tumors are very rarely seen testicular tumors and can be difficult to distinguish from testicular tumors of the adrenogenital syndrome. Testicular tumors of the adrenogenital syndrome are confined to patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia. The authors report a case of a patient with malignant Leydig cell tumor and a history of congenital(More)
Kimura's disease is a benign, uncommon, chronic inflammatory condition that usually presents with painless subcutaneous nodules or plaques in the head and neck region. Although the disease is predominantly found in Asian populations, there are occasional cases reported among Caucasians and rare occurrences in African populations. The etiology and(More)
We present a case of leukemia cutis associated with a prominent giant cell component. This lesion was initially diagnosed as chronic granulomatous inflammation 1 year before the definitive diagnosis of leukemia cutis was made. Skin biopsy specimens showed numerous Langhans-type giant cells occurring singly and as poorly formed granulomas. However, the(More)
BACKGROUND Vernix caseosa peritonitis is a rare complication of cesarean section with distinctive histopathologic findings. CASE Vernix caseosa peritonitis occurred in a 28-year-old, pregnant woman following emergency cesarean section. Exploratory laparotomy revealed right subphrenic and perihepatic fluid collections with multiple small abdominal(More)
Early efforts regarding research on a new area of interest are, by nature, exploratory. Before theoretical models can be built and before meaningful empirical research can be performed, a careful process of identifying the appropriate research questions and problems must be undertaken. This is the current state of research regarding the relatively new area(More)
The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants have together called on the research community to show how continuous audit (CA) could be implemented in various auditing domains. In response to this call, we look at the domain of debt covenant compliance, and we utilize Cold Fusion, a leading web(More)
Aplastic anemia is a disorder characterized by pancytopenia and bone marrow hypocellularity. There is some evidence that aplastic anemia may be due to suppression of hematopoiesis by activated T-suppressor cells. Thus, immunosuppressive agents have been used as an alternative to bone marrow transplantation for treatment. We report on a unique case of a(More)
Low-dose aspirin may be inadequate for inhibition of platelet function in hyperlipoproteinemics due to increased platelet reactivity. Platelet function was studied in 18 type II hyperlipoproteinemic and 12 normal subjects after at least ten days of treatment with placebo and with low-dose (0.45 mg/kg/day) and high-dose (900 mg/day) aspirin. In the normal(More)
