The Dlg Module and Clathrin-Mediated Endocytosis Regulate EGFR Signaling and Cyst Cell-Germline Coordination in the Drosophila Testis.

Stem Cell Reports 2019 Apr 5. Epub 2019 Apr 5.

Department of Developmental Biology, Beckman Center, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA 94305-5329, USA.

Tissue homeostasis and repair relies on proper communication of stem cells and their differentiating daughters with the local tissue microenvironment. In the Drosophila male germline adult stem cell lineage, germ cells proliferate and progressively differentiate enclosed in supportive somatic cyst cells, forming a small organoid, the functional unit of differentiation. Here we show that cell polarity and vesicle trafficking influence signal transduction in cyst cells, with profound effects on the germ cells they enclose. Read More

Ectopic Dpp signaling promotes stem cell competition through EGFR signaling in the Drosophila testis.

Sci Rep 2019 Apr 16;9(1):6118. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

College of Life Sciences, Capital Normal University, Beijing, 100048, China.

Stem cell competition could select the fittest stem cells and potentially control tumorigenesis. However, little is known about the underlying molecular mechanisms. Here, we find that ectopic Decapentaplegic (Dpp) signal activation by expressing a constitutively active form of Thickveins (Tkv) in cyst stem cells (CySCs) leads to competition between CySCs and germline stem cells (GSCs) for niche occupancy and GSC loss.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2019 Apr 13. Epub 2019 Apr 13.

Ankara University, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Pathology, Ankara, Turkey.

Cutaneous adnexial tumours derived from the outer root sheath of hair follicles are trichilemmal tumours or pilar cysts. These tumours show trichilemmal keratinization as formation of a dense keratin layer without interposition of the granular cell layer. Trichilemmal cysts can form rapidly multiplying trichilemmal tumors, also called proliferating trichilemmal tumour (PTT) or cyst. Read More

Iatrogenic Intraspinal Epidermal Inclusion Cyst with Secondary Infection: A Cause for Acute Paraparesis.

J Orthop Case Rep 2018 Nov-Dec;8(6):96-99

Department of Spine Surgery, Baby Memorial Hospital, Calicut, Kerala, India.

Introduction: Lumbar puncture with unstyletted needle or any other spine trauma can cause implantation of skin fragments inside the dura and can cause acquired intraspinal epidermoid tumors. There is significant delay found between the episode of lumbar puncture and the presentation of the tumor. To the best of our knowledge, there is no reported case of intraspinal epidermoid tumor presenting as acute paraparesis secondary to infection of the tumor in the literature. Read More

Evolution of epidermoid cyst into dermoid cyst: Embryological explanation and radiological-pathological correlation.

Neuroradiol J 2019 Apr 3;32(2):92-97. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

2 Department of Pathology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, India.

Intracranial dermoid and epidermoid cysts are usually considered to be two different entities in the radiological and surgical literature. Epidermoid cysts are classically off midline in location, isointense to cerebrospinal fluid on T1 and T2-weighted images and have restricted diffusion, whereas dermoid cysts are classically midline in location, have T1-hyperintense regions due to the presence of fat and show facilitated diffusion. We report a case of radiological epidermoid cyst in baseline imaging, which evolved into a radiological dermoid cyst over time, and explain this unique occurrence with a review of the embryology and histopathogenesis of these cysts.

World Neurosurg 2019 Feb 17;122:e1398-e1404. Epub 2018 Nov 17.

Department of Neurosurgery, Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Neurologico Carlo Besta, Milan, Italy.

Objective: Piezoelectric surgery represents an innovative technique to perform safe and effective osteotomies and is an alternative to traditional bony tissue management using rotating or perforating instruments. We evaluated the safety and feasibility of craniotomies using an ultrasonic device that allows the selective cut of mineralized structures, avoiding damages to the vascular, dural, and parenchymal structures.

Methods: We analyzed a series of 300 patients (age range, 1-81 years; SD ± 15. Read More

Intraspinal Inclusion Tumor After Myelomeningocele Repair: A Long-Term Single-Center Experience.

World Neurosurg 2019 Feb 15;122:e1338-e1344. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Department of Pediatric Neurosurgery, Istituto Giannina Gaslini, Genoa, Italy.

Objective: Given the lack of significant responses to many queries regarding behavior, treatment options, and possible prevention of iatrogenic intraspinal inclusion tumors (IITs), we think that further clinical, radiologic, and follow-up data are mandatory to better characterize this entity. We retrospectively reviewed a series of 14 consecutive patients with IIT occurring after myelomeningocele repair. The long follow-up is a mainstay of this series and may help a better understanding of the history of this slow-growing disease. Read More

Sensation-Sparing Correction of Inverted Nipples Using the 'Drawbridge' Flap Approach.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2019 Apr 25;43(2):348-353. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

St. Andrew's Centre for Plastic Surgery and Burns, Chelmsford, UK.

Introduction: An inverted nipple can cause significant functional and psychologic disturbance to women. The holy grail of any surgical technique to correct this is to restore adequate nipple projection and at the same time, try to preserve lactation and nipple sensation. We describe our experience using an inferior dermal nipple-areolar interposition flap to correct the inverted nipple alongside with selective release of the lactiferous ducts of the nipple.
