Treatment of Peristomal granulomatosis with a Neem and Red Hypericum Oil application: Case studies.

Clin Ter 2019 Mar-Apr;170(2):e86-e92

Registered Nurse, Clinical Specialist in Wound Care, Clinical Specialist in Ostomy Care, Independent Tissue Viability Consultant, Rome, Italy.

Background: Peristomal granulomatosis is a chronic inflammatory disease of uncertain aetiology, and a high recurrence rate. It frequently occurs in patients with enterostomy and urostomy. The most frequent type affects the mucocutaneous junction, causing bleeding and painful nodular lesions, which complicate management of the ostomy pouching system. Read More

Cardiol Res 2018 Dec 7;9(6):381-384. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Department of Gynaecology Surgery, CHU Rangueil, Toulouse, France.

A ruptured breast implant is usually asymptomatic and accidentally discovered during an imaging test. However, implant ruptures can cause isolated silicone granulomas and cases of severe systemic disease. We report the first case of a 39-year-old female patient with augmentation breast implants and myopericarditis secondary to implant rupture. Read More

Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome: a case report of a rare disease with overlapping features.

Allergy Asthma Clin Immunol 2019 5;15. Epub 2019 Jan 5.

2Department of Neuroscience, Division of Dentistry, University of Padua, Via Giustiniani 2, 35128 Padua, Italy.

Background: Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome (MRS) is a rare, neuro-mucocutaneous disease which presents as orofacial swelling, facial palsy and fissured tongue. These symptoms may occur simultaneously or, more frequently, with a oligosymptomatic or monosymptomatic pattern. Swelling, that is the most common initial finding, may mimic hereditary or acquired angioedema, a disorder caused by histamine or bradykinin-mediated plasma-leakage affecting subcutaneous and/or submucosal tissue.

Egg-Released IPSE/alpha-1 Dampens Inflammatory Cytokine Responses Basophil Interleukin (IL)-4 and IL-13.

Front Immunol 2018 10;9:2293. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Experimental Pneumology, Research Center Borstel, Airway Research Center North, Member of the German Center for Lung Research (DZL), Borstel, Germany.

Schistosomes control inflammation in their hosts highly effective mechanisms such as induction of Tregs, Bregs, and alternatively activated macrophages (AAMs). Notably, IPSE/alpha-1, the major secretory product from eggs, triggers basophils to release interleukin (IL)-4 and IL-13. Both cytokines are essential for AAM induction, suggesting an important role for IPSE/alpha-1 in inflammation control. Read More

Sera from patients with active pulmonary tuberculosis and their household contacts induce nuclear changes in neutrophils.

Infect Drug Resist 2018 10;11:1685-1702. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Pneumology Unit, Hospital General de México "Eduardo Liceaga", UNAM, Mexico City, Mexico.

Background: Resident alveolar macrophages, dendritic cells, and immigrating neutrophils (NEU) are the first cells to contact in the lung. These cells, and additional lymphoid cells in the developing granuloma, release a series of components that may concentrate in the serum and affect disease progression.

Purpose: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the serum from tuberculosis (TB) patients and their household contacts (HHC) on the nuclear morphology of NEU. Read More

A case of tuberculosis reactivation suspected of cancer progression during oral tyrosine kinase inhibitor treatment in a patient diagnosed as non-small cell lung cancer.

J Thorac Dis 2017 Aug;9(8):E709-E713

Division of Pulmonology and Critical Care Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, Uijeongbu St. Mary's Hospital, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, Korea.

We report a first case of a patient experiencing reactivation of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) during treatment of oral tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). A 44-year-old male patient visited the hospital with cough. He had been treated with erlotinib (oral TKI) for 8 months after being diagnosed as NSCLC with sensitive epidermal growth factor receptor mutation in our clinic. Read More

Soft Tissue Applications of Er,Cr:YSGG Laser in Pediatric Dentistry.

Int J Clin Pediatr Dent 2017 Apr-Jun;10(2):188-192. Epub 2017 Jun 1.

Professor and Principal, Department of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry, Eklavya Dental College, Kothputli, Rajasthan, India.

Soft tissue laser, such as diode and Nd:YAG lasers were initially used in soft tissue lesions because of its increased success rate. It was because of the fact that these lasers were well-absorbed by chromophores, such as hemoglobin and melanin which are found abundant in the oral mucosa. The introduction of erbium family in 1990 comprising the Er:YAG and Er,Cr:YSGG lasers made the hard tissue laser a boon for dentistry. Read More

Asia Pac J Ophthalmol (Phila) 2017 Sep-Oct;6(5):435-443. Epub 2017 Aug 22.

Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, Herston, Queensland, Australia.

Purpose: Adult xanthogranulomatous disease of the orbit and ocular adnexa is a rare disease that can cause serious morbidity and mortality. Ophthalmologists are commonly the first clinicians to come in contact with affected patients and an understanding of the clinical features is essential.

Design: We present a retrospective case series of patients seen in the oculoplastic unit of a large tertiary referral hospital over a 20-year period. Read More

Botulinum Toxin Injections Into the Lateral Cricoarytenoid Muscles for Vocal Process Granuloma.

J Voice 2018 May 1;32(3):363-366. Epub 2017 Aug 1.

Drexel University College Of Medicine, Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Objective: Contact granulomas are benign, exophytic inflammatory lesions of the larynx that typically arise on or near the vocal process of the arytenoid cartilage. The most common management options include voice therapy and antireflux pharmacotherapy, intralesional steroid injections, botulinum toxin injections, and surgical excision. In-office Botox injection into the lateral cricoarytenoid (LCA) muscle can be effective even for recurrent granulomas. Read More

Breast magnetic resonance imaging: tips for the diagnosis of silicone-induced granuloma of a breast implant capsule (SIGBIC).

Insights Imaging 2017 Aug 14;8(4):439-446. Epub 2017 Jul 14.

Department of Radiology, Santa Casa de Misericórdia de São Paulo, Rua Maestro Chiaffarelli, 409, Jardim Paulista, São Paulo, SP, 01432-030, Brazil.

Complications resulting from the placement of silicone breast implants are becoming more frequent in our clinical practice. This is due to the increase in breast aesthetic surgeries at the beginning of the century, where breast augmentation using silicone implants was the main intervention performed. Generally, studies that discuss the complications of breast implants are restricted to reports of intra- or extra-capsular ruptures, contractures and haematomas. Read More

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head & Neck Surgery, West China Hospital, West China Medical School, Sichuan University, Chengdu, Sichuan, China.

Objectives: Vocal process granulomas have a high tendency for persistence despite many treatment alternatives. Anti-reflux medications or botulinum toxin A injections are the main current therapies. There are no studies that compare the effects on vocal process granuloma of proton pump inhibitors plus prokinetic agents with botulinum toxin A injections. Read More

Background: Decorative tattooing as a body art form underwent an exponential increase during the last two decades, particularly among teenagers and young adults. Consequently, the number of reported adverse reactions after tattooing has increased. The most frequent reported skin reactions to tattoo include infectious (bacterial, viral, fungal) or inflammatory (allergic contact dermatitis and granulomatous reaction) diseases. Read More

Department of Pathology, University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB), 301 University Blvd #1, Galveston, TX 77555 USA.

Background: Hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) is a common diffuse parenchymal lung disease in Egypt which can be difficult to recognize due to the dynamic symptoms & associated environmental factors.

Methods: Forty-three Egyptian patients were enrolled in this study, presenting with dyspnea and cough, predominant ground-glass opacity (GGO) in high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) where lung biopsy was needed to establish the diagnosis.

Results: The age range was 15 to 60 years. Read More

Curr Probl Dermatol 2017 10;52:58-73. Epub 2017 Mar 10.

The 'Tattoo Clinic', Department of Dermatology, Bispebjerg University Hospital, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Tattoo complications represent a broad spectrum of clinical entities and disease mechanisms.

A clinical classification system of distinct patterns with emphasis on inflammatory tattoo reactions is introduced. Read More
