Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a genetic disorder characterized by seizures and tumor formation in multiple organs, mainly in the brain, skin, kidney, lung and heart. Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) occurs in ∼3% of TSC patients, and typically develops at age <50. Here we describe genetic findings in two TSC patients with multiple renal tumors, each of whom(More)
A urinary bladder tumor in young pregnant women is a very rare finding. It may bring diagnostic problems despite use of advanced imaging techniques. We report on a case of an exceedingly rare occurrence of a decidual reaction in the urinary bladder of a pregnant young woman. To the best of our knowledge, it is the first such case reported in published(More)
Developing garden pea embryos are able to take up exogenously applied cyclitols: myo-inositol, which naturally occurs in pea, and two cyclitols absent in pea plants: d-chiro-inositol and d-pinitol. The competition in the uptake of cyclitols by pea embryo, insensitivity to glucose and sucrose, and susceptibility to inhibitor(s) of H(+)-symporters (e.g. CCCP(More)
Urinary bladder sonography is a sensitive diagnostic technique used for visualizing urinary bladder tumours. The aim of our communication is to present a case of a pseudotumour of the urinary bladder originating from the symphysis pubis syndesmosis. A 58-year-old woman was seen by a urologist with symptoms of lower urinary tract infection. Urinary bladder(More)
We report a rare case of a mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT)-type lymphoma of the bladder, incidentally found on sonography in a 17-year-old girl during the workup of arterial hypertension. The diagnosis was established by a transurethral biopsy. Treatment consisted of transurethral resection of the bladder tumor and subsequent chemotherapy. To the(More)
Among 140 patients with acute leukemia (AL) diagnosed according to FAB criteria, pericarditis was diagnosed clinically in 5 of them. They were 2 women and 3 men with different types of AL (L2-in one, M2-in one, M3-in one and M4-in two persons). It occurred in one patient at the onset of the disease and was associated with hyperuricemia, in another one--in(More)
Three cases of acute non-promyelocytic leukemia complicated with intravascular coagulation and fibrinolysis syndrome were described. The blood clotting system and fibrinolysis studies in all 3 cases revealed a significant increase of FDP level and shortening of fibrinolysis time as well as a decrease of fibrinogen content in 2 cases. In one patient the(More)
