Proliferative changes seen in reactive mesothelial hyperplasia of a hydrocele sac may mimic malignant mesothelioma. There is no immunohistochemical staining that reliably separates benign from malignant mesothelial proliferations. However, the combined analysis of BAP1 by immunohistochemistry and CDKN2A by FISH has been reported to yield both a high specificity and sensitivity in this differential diagnosis. Read More

Diagnostic clues, pitfalls, and imaging characteristics of '-celes' that arise in abdominal and pelvic structures.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2020 Apr 30. Epub 2020 Apr 30.

Department of Internal Medicine, Pratumthani Hospital, 7 Ladlumkaew Muang District, Pratumtani, 12000, Thailand.

'-Celes' is an ancient Greek language suffix that means 'tumor,' 'hernia,' 'swelling,' or 'cavity.' There are many '-celes' in the abdomen and pelvis that may be encountered during routine imaging interpretation, including santorinicele, choledochocele, ureterocele, lymphocele, mucocele, rectocele, cystocele, peritoneocele, varicocele, spermatocele, hydrocele, hematocele, pyocele and syringocele. Most '-celes' are detected incidentally at imaging for other clinical indications, but some deserve more attention due to a range of clinical symptoms or functional disorder that can adversely affect patient quality of life.

'Testis-epididymis dissociation' in cryptorchidism and hydrocele: the tip of the iceberg of a persistent genital mesentery.

Surg Radiol Anat 2020 Mar 6. Epub 2020 Mar 6.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Aghia Sophia Children's Hospital, Thivon St. and Papadiamontopoulou St., 11527, Athens, Greece.

Purpose: To investigate whether testis-epididymis dissociation encountered in boys with cryptorchidism/hydrocele is related with an abnormal persistence of the fetal mesentery of testis and associated ducts.

Methods: We examined the morphology of peritoneal folds of the testis, epididymis, and vas deferens in 25 boys operated for unilateral cryptorchidism [inguinal (n = 20), intrabdominal (n = 5)] and 20 boys operated for unilateral communicating hydrocele. Findings were compared with the normally persisting genital mesentery of rats (n = 30, both sides), a known animal model of the genital mesentery of human fetuses, as well as with the normal mature pattern of genital peritoneal folds in adult male cadavers (n = 12, both sides).

New insights into the expression of androgen and estrogen receptors of the appendix testis in congenital cryptorchidism.

J Pediatr Endocrinol Metab 2020 Apr;33(4):503-508

Research Laboratory of the Division of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes, Department of Pediatrics, University of Patras School of Medicine, Patras, Greece.

Background The appendix testis (AT) is the most common vestigial remnant of the human testis. Variations in the presence and expression of AT androgen receptor (AR) and estrogen receptor (ER) have been reported in cryptorchidism. We studied the possible association of AR and ER expression of the AT with cryptorchidism. Read More

A Study On Serological Reactivity Profile Of Different Antigen Preparations With Bancroftian Filariasis Human Infection Sera.

Protein Pept Lett 2020 Feb 25. Epub 2020 Feb 25.

King Fahd Medical Research Center, King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah. Saudi Arabia.

Background: Lymphatic filariasis (LF) is one of the incapacitating and mosquito-borne sicknesses that on progression may prompt a few recognizable types of clutters like extreme lymphedema, hydrocele, and elephantiasis Methods: Antigenic preparations of B. malayi adult (BmA), S. cervi adult parasites and microfilariae (mf) total parasite extract were used to analyze the serological reactivity profile with human infectious sera collected from endemic areas of bancroftian filariasis by performing Western blot and ELISA analysis.

Department of Otolaryngology,Xijing Hospital,Air Force Medical University,Xi'an,710032,China.

A retrospective analysis of audiologic outcome and graft take rate on post-tympanoplasty with different middle ear mucosal conditions in wet ear. According to the characteristics of middle ear mucosal condition and residual eardrum, 80 cases with wet ear of chronic suppurative otitis media were divided into the hydrocele group, the swelling group and the granulation group. The factors in different groups, including gender, age, disease course, sides, size and location of perforations, destruction of ossicular chain and reconstruction methods were analyzed. Read More

Background: The Mucopolysaccharidosis type VI (MPS VI), also known as Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome (OMIM 253200) is an autosomal recessive lysosomal disorder, caused by the deficiency of the enzyme N-acetylgalactosamine 4-sulfatase (also known as arylsulfatase B) due to mutations of the ARSB gene. Cardiologic features are well recognized, and are always present in MPS VI patients. Generally, the onset and the progression of the cardiologic symptoms are insidious, and just a few patients have developed a rapidly progressive disease. Read More
