BACKGROUND Primary essential cutis verticis gyrata (CVG) is characterized by folds and furrows of the scalp, resembling the convoluted appearance of the brain, and is not associated with other abnormalities. Most patients with CVG are treated with surgical methods, such as scalp reduction; however, surgery may not be suitable for patients in whom the area(More)
This paper presents several useful computational tools and available resources to facilitate linguistic studies. For each computational tool, we demonstrate why it is useful and how can it be used for research. In addition, linguistic examples are given for illustration. First, a very useful searching engine, Key Word in Context (KWIC), is introduced. This(More)
CASE REPORT A 65-year-old Taiwanese female initially presented an 1-year history of experiencing an asymptomatic dark reddish subun-gual mass on the left thumb (Fig. 1A). The patient's medical history included diabetes mellitus, hypertension, coronary arterial disease , and a right hemiparesis resulting from an intracerebral hemorrhage ten years prior. No(More)
The human JC virus (JCV) is potentially carcinogenic to humans as a Group 2B carcinogen, and it is ubiquitous in human populations. To investigate whether the small tumour (ST) antigen of the JCV contributes to genomic instability, we established cell lines stably expressing the JCV ST and examined its role in DNA repair. Results from host cell reactivation(More)
Tc-99m phytate hepatic scintigraphy remains the standard method for evaluating the functional features of Kupffer cells. In this study, we demonstrate the variable uptake feature of focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) in Tc-99m phytate scintigraphy. We reviewed all patients who underwent Tc-99m phytate hepatic scintigraphy between 2008 and 2012 in Kaohsiung(More)
The most common metastatic sites of colorectal cancer are the regional lymph nodes, liver, lungs, and peritoneum. Seminal vesicle metastasis from colon adenocarcinoma is not reported yet; the diagnosis could be challenging. We report a case of seminal vesicle metastasis from a primary ascending colon adenocarcinoma in a 49-year-old man, with elevating(More)
Transient neonatal pustular melanosis is mostly found in full-term black infants. It is a benign and self-limited disease, and the etiology is still unknown. We present a full-term female neonate with multiple vesiculopustular and pigmented macular lesions found immediately after her birth. A skin biopsy showed vesicles consisting of intracorneal and(More)
