Gastrointestinal metastasis from lung cancer is exceptional and generally asymptomatic. Other secondary localizations are often present. Metastastic dissemination may involve any portion of the gastrointestinal tract. Clinical expression is variable: dysphagia, anemia, bowel obstruction, peritonitis. Surgical treatment may be indicated in selected patients.(More)
Cases of multiple agenesia present some difficulties in the treatment planing. Three situations may be encountered: limited agenesia, restored by a fixed, bonded or cemented prosthesis, multiple uni- or bimaxillary agenesia without remaining of deciduous teeth, restored by a fixed, bonded or cemented prosthesis or the partial adjacent prosthesis, multiple(More)
INTRODUCTION Vibrio vulnificus proliferates during the summer in salt water where it infects the crustaceans. Expression of its pathogenicity depends on the underlying condition and mode of contamination. OBSERVATION A 65 year-old man presented with a Vibrio vulnificus septicaemia of cutaneous origin, transmitted when he cut himself with a crawfish. The(More)
This retrospective study reports the results of surgical lung biopsies in 21 patients infected by HIV. Diagnostic was assessed by surgical lung biopsies in 66% of cases with a 5% immediate post-operative mortality and a 80% survival rate after one month. Therapeutic management was modified in 38% of cases. These results are in concordance with previously(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of ESCAP-2011-CPHG, promoted by the French College of General Hospital Respiratory Physicians, was to describe therapeutic strategies in lung cancer in the first 2 years after diagnosis, in a real-life setting. This article focuses on patients undergoing surgical management of a non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS A prospective(More)
No single radioisotopic exploration is capable of detecting metastases of malignant melanomas, but the successive use of three different scintigraphic techniques (liver, bone and 67Ga citrate) has increased the detection rate from 55 to 68%. Since these metastases are small and may develop anywhere in the body, several methods must systematically be(More)
