In October 1994 Seiberg-Witten invariants entered in 4-manifold theory with a big bang. Not only did these invariants tidy up the Gauge Theory, but they also gave some exciting new results on topology of smooth 4-manifolds. These notes grew out of the lectures I have given in learning seminars at MPI in Bonn, and METU in Ankara on this subject. The main(More)

BACKGROUND Intussusception is defined as the telescoping of a segment of the gastrointestinal tract into an adjacent one. A demonstrable etiology is found in 70% to 90% of cases in adult patients, and about 40% of them are caused by a primary or secondary malignant tumor. The aims of this study were to give an overview of the literature on intussusception(More)

BACKGROUND Living-donor liver transplantation with inferior vena cava resection and reconstruction is rarely indicated for Budd-Chiari syndrome. The aim of this case presentation was to present and discuss the inferior vena cava reconstruction with the use of cadaveric aortic allograft after resection of the suprahepatic inferior vena cava in a patient with(More)
INTRODUCTION Renal oncocytomas are benign neoplasms derived from cells of the distal renal tubule, and comprise 5% to 7% of primary renal neoplasms. Oncocytomas are mostly asymptomatic, and the majority of tumors are discovered incidentally. In this case report, we present a case of a patient with a giant oncocytoma arising from her left kidney. CASE(More)
Inflammatory fibroid polyps are rare, localized, non-neoplastic lesions originating in the submucosa of the gastrointestinal tract. Intussusception due to inflammatory fibroid polyps is uncommon; moreover, ileo-ileal intussusception has only rarely been reported. Here, we report an 11 x 7 cm giant inflammatory fibroid polyp of the small bowel that presented(More)
Ranunculus arvensis (corn buttercup) is a plant species of the genus Ranunculus that is frequently used in the Far East to treat rheumatic diseases and several dermatological disorders. In Turkey, the plant is seen in the eastern and southeastern Anatolian highlands, which are underdeveloped areas of the country. Herein, we report three patients who used(More)
BACKGROUND This retrospective study analysed the epidemiological, clinical, and therapeutic profiles of breast cancer in males. METHODS We report our experience at the Hospital of the University of Baskent, where 20 cases of male breast cancer were observed and treated between 1995-2008. RESULTS Median age at presentation was 66,7 +/- 10,9 years.(More)
INTRODUCTION Female genital tuberculosis is a rare form of extrapulmonary tuberculosis. It is an asymptomatic disease usually diagnosed during the search for causes of infertility. However, it can present with a number of abdominopelvic symptoms. Herein we report a case of tubo-ovarian tuberculosis mimicking acute appendicitis. CASE PRESENTATION A(More)
