Background: Secondary solid cancers are severe complications in patients who have undergone allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (AHSCT) for malignant and nonmalignant lymphohematopoietic diseases.

Objective: The aim of this work was to report a case of two lip carcinomas following AHSCT and to warn doctors about the importance of regular check-ups of patients who have received HSCT. . A 57-year-old man was referred by the dermatology department for the management of exophytic budding lesions on the lower lip evolving since 5 months. The patient was in complete remission following allogeneic bone marrow transplantation for acute myeloid leukemia since five years. Clinical and histological findings confirmed the diagnosis of a squamous cell carcinoma of the two lesions.

Conclusion: It is of paramount importance to seek an oral squamous cell carcinoma in the presence of persistent lesions in HSCT recipients.

Small bowel and lung histiocytic sarcoma revealed by acute peritonitis: A case report with review of literature.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2021 Aug 27;68:102638. Epub 2021 Jul 27.

Department of Pathology, Fattouma Bourguiba University Hospital, Monastir, 5000, Tunisia.

Introduction And Importance: Histiocytic sarcoma (HS) is a rare malignant neoplasm showing morphologic and immunohistochemical features of histiocytes. It is characterized typically by extranodal presentation and a poor clinical course, particularly in cases with disseminated disease.

Case Presentation: This report documents a case of bifocal and aggressive HS in small bowel and lung revealed by acute peritonitis in a 63-year-old man.

Clinical Discussion: Despite its rarity, we believe that the correct diagnosis of HS is crucial for clinical treatment and prognostic prediction.

Conclusion: The collection of additional cases of HS are important to obtain further progress in prognosis and guide treatment decisions.

Disseminated intravascular coagulation type of amniotic fluid embolism: a challenging case report with favorable outcome.

Pan Afr Med J 2021 1;38:325. Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Anesthesia-Intensive Care Department B, Maternity and Neonatology Teaching Center of Monastir, Monastir, Tunisia.

Amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) is an unforeseeable, life-threatening complication of pregnancy and child birth. Although rare in an absolute sense, most contemporary series of maternal deaths from developed countries report AFE as a leading cause of mortality in the pregnant population. It has a heterogeneous presentation. This clinical heterogeneity makes the diagnosis of AFE difficult based on a beam of clinical and para-clinical arguments. Rapid diagnosis and immediate interdisciplinary treatment are essential for a good outcome. The present is a case of AFE with a disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) and a cardiorespiratory collapse following a vaginal delivery.

Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor of soft tissue: A case report with review of literature.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2021 Jul 9;67:102479. Epub 2021 Jun 9.

Pathology Department of Fattouma Bourguiba University Hospital, Monastir, Tunisia.

Introduction And Importance: The ossifying fibromyxoid tumor of soft tissue is a rare tumor of intermediate differentiation and uncertain lineage that occurs in adults mostly in the extremities and the trunk.

Presentation Of Case: we present a case of 57 year-old man presenting with a right scapular mass. It was a subcutaneous and painless mass that was largely excised. The diagnosis of ossifying fibromyxoid tumor of the right shoulder was made. The follow up of 1 year was without recurrence and metastasis.

Clinical Discussion: The ossifying fibromyxoid tumor of soft tissue is exceptional, microscopic diagnosis and management is challenging, considering the scarcity of the tumor.

Conclusion: More cases and retrospective studies are needed to understand the pathogenesis and to determine optimal treatment regimens.
