Since the discovery of USP6 gene rearrangements in aneurysmal bone cysts nearly 20 years ago, we have come to recognize that there is a family of USP6-driven mesenchymal neoplasms with overlapping clinical, morphologic, and imaging features. This family of neoplasms now includes myositis ossificans, aneurysmal bone cyst, nodular fasciitis, fibroma of tendon sheath, fibro-osseous pseudotumor of digits, and their associated variants. While generally benign and in many cases self-limiting, these lesions may undergo rapid growth, and be confused with malignant bone and soft tissue lesions, both clinically and on imaging. Read More

Non-specific orbital inflammation (NSOI) and IgG4-related orbital disease (IgG4-ROD) are often challenging to differentiate. Furthermore, it is still uncertain how chronic inflammation, such as IgG4-ROD, can lead to mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the diagnostic value of gene expression analysis to differentiate orbital autoimmune diseases and elucidate genetic overlaps. Read More

Background: Treatment of acute promyelocytic leukaemia has emerged as a major success in hemato-oncology. While literature from the developed world boasts of outstanding outcomes, there is a paucity of data from the developing world. This study aimed to assess complications and outcomes of acute promyelocytic leukaemia in a resource-constrained setting. Read More

Pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) is defined as a rare disease with a pathological increase in intracranial pressure of unknown origin. The aim of this retrospective study was to establish a uniform diagnostic and therapeutic protocol for children and adolescents for the Saarland University Medical Center. Data from 28 patients with pseudotumor cerebri aged 0-17 years in the period 2008-2018 were retrospectively collected and statistically analyzed. Read More

Background: Cerebral infarction (CI) is an unusual complication in patients with bleeding disorders. To our knowledge, this is the first case of postoperative internal border-zone infarction (I-BZI) from Hemophilia A.Case Presentation: We present a case of Hemophilia A developing I-BZI, after surgical treatment of giant hemophilic pseudotumor.
