A case of extranasopharyngeal angiofibroma of the ethmoid sinus: a distinct clinical entity at an unusual site.

Ear Nose Throat J 2012 Feb;91(2):E15-7

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Medical College of Srinagar, Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences, Jammu and Kashmir, India.

Angiofibromas of the head and neck usually arise from the nasopharynx in adolescent boys. The term extranasopharyngeal angiofibroma (ENA) has been applied to vascular fibrous nodules that arise outside the nasopharynx. Because the clinical characteristics of ENA are not consistent with those of juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA), diagnosis of the former can be challenging. Read More

Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biosciences, University of Tokyo, 1-1-1 Yayoi, Bunkyo-Ku, Tokyo 113-0032, Japan.

Ten pale-pink- and pale-yellow-pigmented, Gram-negative, non-motile, rod-shaped, chemoheterotrophic bacteria designated strains YM20-087T, YM21-151, MN1-741T, YM27-120T, YM26-010T, YM24-184, YM20-122, A4T-83T, A5J-41-2T and A5J-40 were isolated from various marine environments and were subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic investigation. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that these isolates belonged to the phylum 'Verrucomicrobia' (subdivision 1) and represented three independent lineages that were distinct from species of genera of the family Verrucomicrobiaceae with validly published names. The cell-wall peptidoglycan of these strains contained muramic acid and meso-diaminopimelic acid. Read More

Nocardia speluncae sp. nov., isolated from a cave.

Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2007 Dec;57(Pt 12):2932-2935

Department of Science Education, Cheju National University, Jeju 690-756, Republic of Korea.

The taxonomic status of a mycolic acid-containing actinomycete, isolated from a natural cave on Jeju Island, Republic of Korea, was investigated by means of a polyphasic approach. The isolate, designated strain N2-11(T), produced yellow- to orange-coloured vegetative hyphae and white- to pinkish white-coloured aerial mycelia, both of which fragmented into irregular rod-shaped elements. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that the organism belonged to the family Nocardiaceae, occupying a distinct position between Nocardia harenae and a Nocardia carnea cluster.

Widespread granulomatous dermatitis of infancy: an early sign of Blau syndrome.

Arch Dermatol 2007 Mar;143(3):386-91

Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology, New York University School of Medicine, New York 10016, USA.

Background: Pediatric sarcoidosis has traditionally been divided into 2 distinct groups: (1) school-aged children and adolescents with frequent involvement of the lungs and mediastinal lymph nodes (similar to adult sarcoidosis) and (2) infants and preschoolers with the triad of arthritis, uveitis, and a cutaneous eruption of discrete small papules, referred to as early-onset sarcoidosis. Blau syndrome, a rare autosomal dominant genodermatosis caused by mutations in the NOD2 (nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain 2) gene, has been considered as the familial form of early-onset sarcoidosis.

Observations: A 9-month-old boy developed an asymptomatic eruption of 1- to 2-mm, red-brown to pinkish tan, flat-topped papules on the face, trunk, and extremities. Read More

A 54-year-old man presented with a recurrent swelling on the right occipital region of the scalp. Two months earlier, the patient had undergone an initial local excision of the lesion which had enlarged progressively over the previous 2 years on a hairless patch which had been present since birth. On examination, a 5 x 4-cm, pinkish, firm, ulcerated swelling was seen on the right occipital region with a scar running over it. Read More

Streptomyces jietaisiensis sp. nov., isolated from soil in northern China.

Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2005 Sep;55(Pt 5):1939-1944

BCCM/LMG Bacteria Collection, Department of Biochemistry, Physiology and Microbiology, Universiteit Gent, K. L. Ledeganckstraat 35, B-9000 Gent, Belgium.

An actinomycete, strain FXJ46(T), was isolated from cypress forest soil in northern China and shown to have chemotaxonomic and morphological properties consistent with streptomycetes. It developed greyish aerial mycelium and pinkish-brown substrate mycelium on oatmeal agar. Phylogenetic analyses based on an almost complete 16S rRNA gene sequence of the strain and on the 120 nucleotide variable gamma-region of this molecule showed that it formed a distinct (but closely associated) line with Streptomyces griseoaurantiacus DSM 40430(T) in Streptomyces trees.

Countergradient variation and secondary sexual color: phenotypic convergence promotes genetic divergence in carotenoid use between sympatric anadromous and nonanadromous morphs of sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka).

Authors:

Evolution 2001 Feb;55(2):380-91

School of Fisheries, University of Washington, Seattle 98195, USA.

Genetically distinct anadromous (sockeye) and nonanadromous (kokanee) morphs of the Pacific salmon, Oncorhynchus nerka, develop identical, brilliant red color at maturity during sympatric breeding in freshwater streams. The marine and lacustrine environments they occupy prior to maturity, however, appear to differ in the availability of dietary carotenoid pigments necessary to produce red coloration. We tested the hypothesis that kokanee, which occupy carotenoid-poor lakes, are more efficient at using the dietary pigments than are sockeye, which occupy the more productive North Pacific Ocean.

Institute of Anatomy, Medical University of Lübeck, Federal Republic of Germany.

Sections of undecalcified human fetuses, fixed in formaldehyde, embedded in the epoxy resin Biodur E 12 and cut on a diamond-wire saw were stained according to a slight modification of the method described by Laczkó and Lévai. The sections were immersed in a methylene blue/azure II solution at 90 C for at least 3 min and counterstained with a basic fuchsin solution at the same temperature. Differential staining was as follows: bone stained pinkish; cartilage, violet; collagen fibers, blue-violet; elastic fibers, red and muscle fibers, green-blue. Read More
