This article was published in the following journal.

Intramuscular intestinal lipoma is one of the rare benign tumours of the small intestine in children and acts as a lead point of intussusception.
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.
BACKGROUND The Say-Barber-Biesecker-Young-Simpson (SBBYS) variant of Ohdo syndrome is characterized by congenital hypothyroidism, facial dysmorphism, postaxial polydactyly, and mental retardation. The...
The present study is a case report of vulvar lipoma. The vulva is a rare site for the development of lipomas, and the aim of the study is to determine if the current imaging modalities can diagnose li...
Abdominal masses are common in digestive surgery and gastro-enterology units. However, meso-intestinal lipomas remain rare and lipoma of the left colon uncommon. We report a case of giant lipoma of th...
Magnetic resonance imaging of the middle ear has an increasing place in the therapeutic strategy in otology and especially for cholesteatoma. It is currently performed for complicated chol...
Cholesteatoma is a retraction pocket lined with squamous epithelium lined with keratin debris occurring within pneumatized spaces of the temporal bone. Cholesteatomas have a propensity for...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether collagenase is effective in reducing the surface area of a subcutaneous benign lipoma.
Classical imaging techniques are inaccurate to detect residual cholesteatoma. The aim of our study is to evaluate the value of diffusion-weighted MR imaging and delayed contrast enhanced T...
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...
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.
Congenital conditions are those which are present from birth. They include structural deformities or loss of function in organs such as the <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->heart, gut or skeletal system. They can be corrected by <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->surgery, m...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
