Dactylitis and bone lesions are rare complications of sarcoidosis that occur in the chronic disease and they are unusual features of the disease at presentation. The present paper describes a case of a 28-year-old woman with dactylitis (due to tenosynovitis and soft tissue granulomas) and phalangeal bone lesions in 2 fingers at the onset of sarcoidosis. She(More)
Ganglioglioma with a glioblastomatous component and high-grade atypia of neuronal cells are extremely rare findings. In this paper, we report the case of a 60-year-old man who presented with a tumor of the left temporal lobe. Hematoxylin-Eosin stained slides revealed a complex tumor with features of glioblastoma and marked atypia of neuronal cells. Glial(More)
The association of Crohn's disease and ankylosing spondylitis is described in up to 30% of cases. Treatment of both conditions is not an easy task. We present the case of a 53 year old woman, diagnosed with colonic Crohn's disease and ankylosing spondilitis, treated initially with increasing doses of sulphasalazine and moderate dose of corticosteroids, with(More)
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a promising therapy especially in skin cancer, using the systemic administration of a photosensitizer (PS), followed by the local irradiation of the tumor with visible light. The antitumor effects of PDT are determined especially by the generation of cytotoxic reactive oxygen species (ROS). The(More)
Cutaneous mastocytosis is a disease characterized by the infiltration and proliferation of mast cells in the skin. In children, the most common form of presentation is urticaria pigmentosa, while the diffuse cutaneous bullous mastocytosis is one of the rarest subtypes seen. The aim of this paper is to present a case of diffuse bullous mastocytosis with(More)
BACKGROUND Varicose disease continues to represent an interesting subject. The factors triggering and maintaining vascular and cutaneous tissues alterations in chronic venous insufficiency are not fully known. PATIENTS AND METHODS This is a prospective, statistical analysis study, performed in a consecutive series of 40 patients with varicose disease(More)
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) are rare mesenchymal neoplasms of the gastrointestinal tract with a malignant potential and unpredictable behavior. In the literature a few cases of synchronous development of a GIST and another neoplasia with different incidence, etiology, evolution and prognostic have been described. We report a case of a 61 year old(More)
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) mediated by oxidative stress causes direct tumor cell damage as well as microvascular injury. To improve this treatment new photosensitizers are being synthesized and tested. We evaluated the effects of PDT with 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-methoxyphenyl)-porphyrin (TMPP) and its zinc complex (ZnTMPP) on tumor levels of malondialdehyde(More)
Milwaukee shoulder syndrome (MSS) describes a destructive shoulder arthropathy associated with of calcium hydroxyapatite and calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystals deposition found mainly in elderly women. Pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS) is a benign proliferative disorder of the synovium usually seen in young adults, found frequently in the knee(More)
Rosai-Dorfman disease or sinus histiocytosis of the lymph nodes is a rare, idiopathic, and benign disorder. Painless lymphadenopathy is the most frequent systemic presenting symptom and involves the cervical region in up to 90% of the patients. Extranodal involvement is less common and can represent the initial or the only presentation of the disease. We(More)
