. Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is determined by genetic and environmental factors. There have been many studies on the relationship between the composition of the gastrointestinal bacterial flora, T2DM, and obesity. There are no data, however, on the gut microbiome structure in monogenic forms of the disease including Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young (MODY). . The aim of the investigation was to compare the qualitative parameters of the colonic flora in patients with HNF1AMODY and T2DM and healthy individuals. 16S sequencing of bacterial DNA isolated from the collected fecal samples using the MiSeq platform was performed. . There were significant between-group differences in the bacterial profile. At the phylum level, the amount of Proteobacteria was higher ( = 0.0006) and the amount of Bacteroidetes was lower ( = 0.0005) in T2DM group in comparison to the control group. In HNF1A-MODY group, the frequency of Bacteroidetes was lower than in the control group ( = 0.0143). At the order level, Turicibacterales was more abundant in HNF1A-MODY group than in T2DM group. . It appears that there are differences in the gut microbiome composition between patients with HNF1A-MODY and type 2 diabetes. Further investigation on this matter should be conducted.

[A rare case of chondromyxoid fibroma of the parietal bone].

Neurol Neurochir Pol 2005 Sep-Oct;39(5):408-11

The authors present a very rare case of the chondromyxoid fibroma (CMF) of the parietal bone. This is an uncommon chondroid tumour which constitutes less than 1% of primary bone tumours and which is usually localised in the metaphysis of the long bones, often in the knee region. There are 23 cases of cranial localisation of the chondromyxoid fibroma reported in several papers, 14 cases involved the cranial base and 9 the calvaria. A different ossification process of the skull-base and calvaria is probably responsible for this distribution. In our case we found the focal, lytic lesion in the parietal bone and fibro-greasy tumour mass. The dura was spared. The tumour was removed totally. Curettage of these kind of lesions should be avoided because it may lead to tumour recurrence. Histologically this tumour may cause problems in a differential diagnosis with other chondroid tumours like chondrosarcoma or chondroblastoma.
