Cavitary alveolar sarcoidosis complicated by an aspergilloma.

Cavitation in pulmonary sarcoidosis is rather unusual and even rarer in the alveolar form of the disease. A review of the literature revealed only 13 documented patients with cavitating alveolar sarco...

Atypical Presentation of Sarcoidosis on 18F-FDG PET/CT.

On (18)F-FDG PET, inflammatory processes can be one of the most confounding factors for interpretation, particularly when the presentation of the process is atypical, as it was in the case of sarcoido...

Amyloidoma, an unusual cause of fracture.

We report a case of a spontaneous hip fracture in a context of dysglobulinemia. The bone histologic examination found amyloidoma. Amyloidoma is an overload pathology and an unusual cause of fracture. ...

Unusual Presentation of a Metastatic Tumor to the Temporal Bone: Severe Otalgia and Facial Paralysis.

Metastatic temporal bone tumors are rare diseases and they are usually clinically asymptomatic, so it is difficult to diagnose them. Breasts are the most common sites of temporal bone metastasis. Tumo...

Sudden multiple fractures in a patient with sarcoidosis in multiple organs.

A 30-year-old man who incidentally fractured his right olecranon and other multiple phalanges was admitted to our hospital. He had a 2-year history of uveitis and bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy (BHL)...

Role of Proteomics in Diagnosing Sarcoidosis

Sarcoidosis is a multi-systemic disorder, meaning that it can involve any organ in the body and that its clinical presentation is highly variable. In 90% of all sarcoidosis cases the lungs...

Brain Computer Interface for Communication in ICU: a Feasibility Study

The main objective of this study is to evaluate the usability of a system to assist verbal communication based on BCI system using the P300 wave in patients with tetraplegia who can no lon...

Prevention of Low Blood Pressure in Persons With Tetraplegia

The aim of this investigation is to determine the blood pressure response to NOS inhibition, with L-NAME, in persons with tetraplegia compared to non-SCI control subjects and to establish ...

Abdominal Functional Electrical Stimulation in Tetraplegia

People with high spinal lesions are at risk of respiratory complications because they have partial or complete paralysis of breathing muscles. Previous work has shown that tetraplegic lung...

SARCOTHAL. Thalidomide in Skin Sarcoidosis

Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disease involving most frequently the lung, the eyes, the lymph nodes and the skin. Skin lesions may be disfiguring and impair the quality of life. Thalidomide...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Sarcoidosis affecting predominantly the lungs, the site most frequently involved and most commonly causing morbidity and mortality in sarcoidosis. Pulmonary sarcoidosis is characterized by sharply circumscribed granulomas in the alveolar, bronchial, and vascular walls, composed of tightly packed cells derived from the mononuclear phagocyte system. The clinical symptoms when present are dyspnea upon exertion, nonproductive cough, and wheezing. (Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p431)

A extremely rare bone tumor characterized by abundant collagen formation and a fibrous stroma, without evidence of mitosis or pleomorphism. It appears on x-rays as an osteolytic lesion with well-defined margins and must be differentiated from primary fibrosarcoma of bone. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1441)

A condition characterized by persistent or recurrent labial enlargement, ORAL ULCER, and other orofacial manifestations in the absence of identifiable CROHN DISEASE; or SARCOIDOSIS. There is no consensus on whether orofacial granulomatosis is a distinct clinical disorder or an initial presentation of Crohn disease.

Neurotic reactions to unusual, severe, or overwhelming military stress.

An enlarged THYROID GLAND with at least 50% of the gland situated behind the STERNUM. It is an unusual presentation of an intrathoracic goiter. Substernal goiters frequently cause compression on the TRACHEA leading to deviation, narrowing, and respiratory symptoms.
