Managing Fractures at the Thoracolumbar Junction in Developing Nations: A Review of 89 Cases

Bert Park

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: September 21, 2015

Fractures at the thoracolumbar junction are the most commonly encountered spine injuries in developing countries. Despite the devastating consequences for those with concomitant neurologic deficits, within hospitals having limited resources there remains an attitude akin to 'therapeutic nihilism'; i.e. simply keeping these patients at prolonged bedrest and then bracing them, while 'hoping for the best'. Over an 18-year period encompassing some 100 working/teaching trips abroad to underserved areas, the author has treated 89 such patients with variable degrees of neurologic compromise for whom ...

Isolated Ovarian Metastasis in a Woman with Prior History of Superficial Bladder Cancer

Kathleen Mahoney, Mamta Gupta and Akash Patnaik

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 12, 2015

Primary transitional cell carcinoma of the ovary is a rare form of ovarian cancer, which has many features in common with transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. Here we describe a case of metastatic transitional cell carcinoma to the ovary in a patient with a remote history of primary superficial urothelial carcinoma. Metastasis from a superficial urothelial carcinoma is exceedingly rare. CK7/CK20 positivity is not typical of transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the ovary, thus co-expression of CK7 and CK20 may distinguish metastatic urothelial carcinoma to the ovary from primary ovarian ...

Ultra-High Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging of Unilateral Drusen in a 31 Year Old Woman

Talisa E de Carlo, Mehreen Adhi, Chen D Lu, Jay S Duker, James G Fujimoto and Nadia K Waheed

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 10, 2015

We report a case of widespread unilateral drusen in a healthy 31 year old Caucasian woman using multi-modal imaging including ultra-high resolution optical coherence tomography (UHR-OCT). Dilated fundus exam multiple drusen-like lesions in the posterior pole without heme or fluid. Fundus auto fluorescence demonstrated hyper auto fluorescence at the deposits. Fluoresce in angiography revealed mild hyper fluorescence and staining of the lesions....

Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia Tarda with Progressive Arthropathy Associated with Osteoporosis and Cataract: A Case was Misdiagnosed as Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

Fatma Gul Yurdakul, Rezan Kocak, Filiz Sivas, Aysegul Altun Guvenir and Hatice Bodur

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 09, 2015

Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia tarda with progressive arthropathy (SEDT-PA) is rare hereditary disorder with autosomal recessive, X-linked recessive or autosomal dominant inheritance. Because of joint involvement SEDT-PA may be confused with juvenile idiopathic arthritis and SEDT-PA also called progressive pseudorheumatoidarthropathy of childhood. The present case had been misdiagnosed as juvenile arthritis and received unnecessary treatments for years....

A Rare Case of Bilaterale Ureterohydronephrosis due to Cystitis Cystica Et Glandularis and Review of the Literature

Zafer Demirer, Ali Guragac, Burak Kopru, Bilal Firat Alp and Ibrahim Yildirim

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 05, 2015

Cystitis Cystica Et Glandularis (CCEG) is a metaplastic lesion of the bladder mucosa with a characteristic histopathologic appearance. CCEG are commonly found in specimens taken from the bladder wall of patients with cancer and other diseases or at autopsy. In most cases the course of CCEG is asymptomatic. Some patients complain of hematuria, symptoms associated with the obstruction of the upper urinary tract, or lower urinary tract symptoms. The main symptoms of CCEG accompanied with upper urinary tract obstruction are renal colic and abdominal pain, and the symptoms in most CCEG without uppe...

Untreated Chiari 1 Malformation in Adulthood with Massive Hydrosyringomyelia and Hydrocephalus

Carlo Nicola De Cecco, Davide Bellini, Elisa Porretta, Francesca Cortese, Andrea Laghi and Gianluca Coppola

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 1, 2015

We describe a case of untreated Chiari I malformation in adulthood. It is characterized by displacement of the cerebellar tonsils caudally through the foramen magnum, associated with massive hydrosyringomyelia and tetraventricular hydrocephalum. Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging provides excellent visualization of intracranial and intraspinal malformations, and thus contributes greatly to their correct diagnosis and treatment....

Posterior Uterine Wall Rupture of an Unscarred Uterus in a Woman with History of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Repair

Anna Grassi, Benjamin Scott, Dominic Cammarano, Xuezhi Jiang and Peter F Schnatz

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 28, 2015

A 24-year-old woman, gravida 5, para 2, with single gestation at 41 weeks and 1 day was admitted to the labor unit with regular uterine contractions. Her obstetrical history was significant for two previous uncomplicated spontaneous vaginal deliveries, one ectopic pregnancy and one missed abortion. Her medical history was unremarkable. Her surgical history was significant for a congenital diaphragmatic hernia repair as an infant and dilation and curettage for missed abortion. During an uneventful labor, a sudden loss of fetal station and decelerations to 80 beats/min occurred, leading to an em...

The Challenge of Infections in Frail Elderly: The Story of Mr. Nilsson

Sund-Levander M and Grodzinsky E

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 26, 2015

Signs and symptoms of infection in Nursing Home Residents (NHR) are often atypical with a lack of specific ones, causing a delay in diagnosis and treatment. The complexity of detecting infections in NHR can be explained by difficulties in understanding and interpreting non-specific signs and symptoms and co-existing chronic diseases that blur the clinical picture. The case of Mr. Nilsson illustrates the process from the first signs and symptoms of infection to diagnosis in an elderly person with severe cognitive decline and physical impairment....

Targeting of Myeloid Derived Suppressor Cells Using Anti-inflammatory and Pro-inflammatory Agents

Parvin Forghani and Edmund K Waller

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: October 03, 2015

Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSC) have been considered to be key mediators of immuno-suppression in cancer. The numbers of MDSCs increased in the blood and in the tumor microenvironment during inflammation. Due to the strong correlation between inflammation and cancer that results in tumor progression through MDSCs-associated immune-suppression, it is posited that modulating MDSCs using anti-inflammatory drugs will enhance the activity of immunotherapy and antitumor immunity....

Article Type: Original Research Article | First Published: September 25, 2015

Metastatic squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) to the neck from an unknown primary site presents a challenging diagnostic and therapeutic disease entity, despite a thorough diagnostic workup. The optimal management of patients who have this syndrome is still unclear and controversial. We present our experience in management of patients with unknown primary....
