Mesenteric lipoma is a rare benign tumor of mature fat cells. Asymptomatic abdominal mass, progressive abdominal distension, and intraperitoneal radiolucent fat density mass on computed tomography are the main diagnostic criteria. Main differential diagnosis is lipoblastoma or lipoblastomosis. Treatment is surgical excision. As an unusual case, a 3-year-old(More)
The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effects of sodium phosphate (NaP) and polyethylene glycol-electrolyte (PEG-EL) colon cleansing solutions on histopathology of 2,4,6-trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS) and ethanol (E)-induced colitis in the rat and normal rat colon. The presence of hyperemia, inflammation and ulcer was evaluated to score of(More)
A case is presented of a malignant localized pleural fibroma occurring in a 60-year-old Turkish female who was environmentally exposed to tremolite. The tumor was excised but recurred 3 years later when it was again excised. It is possible that more radical surgery at initial presentation with chest wall resection would have been advantageous.

BACKGROUND The small intestine is extremely sensitive to ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury and a range of microcirculatory disturbances which contribute to tissue damage. Previous studies have shown that leptin plays an important physiological role in the microvasculature. The aim of this study was to evaluate the protective effects of leptin in(More)
A 49-year-old, previously healthy nurse presented with hepatic lesions and severe peripheral eosinophilia due to strongyloidiasis. Imaging studies of the abdomen showed predominantly peripheral, confluent hepatic lesions. The hepatic lesions and eosinophilia did not show any improvement with albendazole, but completely resolved with ivermectin treatment.(More)
Pulmonary blastoma (PB) is a rare malignant pulmonary tumor composed of immature mesenchyme and/or epithelium that resembles an embryonic lung at 10-16 weeks gestation. PBs constitute only 0.25 to 0.5 percent of all primary malignant lung tumors. Approximately 20 percent of the reported cases have occurred in pediatric patients. A seven-year-old girl(More)
