An ileo-ileal intussusception secondary to polypoid lipoma in a child, a case report and review of the literature.

Intramuscular intestinal lipoma is one of the rare benign tumours of the small intestine in children and acts as a lead point of intussusception.

Characteristics of chondroid lipoma: A case report and literature review.

Chondroid lipoma (CL) is a rare benign tumor. No relevant epidemiological reports have been published on CL, and there is a lack of uniform diagnostic and treatment criteria for the tumor.

The Serum Sclerostin Levels in Cholesteatoma Patients

The aim of this study is to investigate the levels of sclerostin in patients with cholesteatoma. So far, there is no study showing the levels of sclerostin in cholesteatoma. The investigat...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A non-neoplastic mass of keratin-producing squamous EPITHELIUM, frequently occurring in the MENINGES; bones of the skull, and most commonly in the MIDDLE EAR and MASTOID region. Cholesteatoma can be congenital or acquired. Cholesteatoma is not a tumor nor is it associated with high CHOLESTEROL.

A mass of KERATIN-producing squamous EPITHELIUM that resembles an inverted (suck-in) bag of skin in the MIDDLE EAR. It arises from the eardrum (TYMPANIC MEMBRANE) and grows into the MIDDLE EAR causing erosion of EAR OSSICLES and MASTOID that contains the INNER EAR.

An article or book published after examination of published material on a subject. It may be comprehensive to various degrees and the time range of material scrutinized may be broad or narrow, but the reviews most often desired are reviews of the current literature. The textual material examined may be equally broad and can encompass, in medicine specifically, clinical material as well as experimental research or case reports. State-of-the-art reviews tend to address more current matters. A review of the literature must be differentiated from HISTORICAL ARTICLE on the same subject, but a review of historical literature is also within the scope of this publication type.

Review of the medical necessity of hospital or other health facility admissions, upon or within a short time following an admission, and periodic review of services provided during the course of treatment.

Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients. This should be differentiated from DEATH, the physiological cessation of life and from MORTALITY, an epidemiological or statistical concept.
