Lymhoepithelioma-like carcinoma is a rare form of lung cancer. Epstein-Barr virus infection has a basic role in the tumourogenesis of the Lymhoepithelioma-like carcinoma. Although it is strongly associated with Epstein-Barr virus infection in Asian patients, there is controversy over whether an association exists in patients from Western counties. The curative ...

Electromagnetic navigation is a novel tool which aids the diagnostic yield of flexible bronchoscopy for peripheral lung lesions and mediastinal lymph nodes. The procedure is safe, effective, and easy and can be performed with or without the use of fluoroscopy. It plays a complementary role with endobronchial ultrasound. It is ...

Objective: Both active and passive smoking increase the risk of developing asthma and respiratory symptoms and decrease pulmonary functions. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of active and passive smoking exposure on asthma severity and exacerbations in patients treated and followed-up regularly by the same physician ...

Objective: Chemical pleurodesis in an effective treatment for malignant effusion and pneumothorax. Although this mode of therapy is less widely accepted in the treatment of patients with hepatic hydrothorax, the need for palliative treatment in such patients encouraged us to analyze the outcome of chemical pleurodesis using bovoiodine, vibramycin and ...

Objective: One of the indications for endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) is the diagnosis of mediastinal and/or hilar lymphadenopathy. The aim of this study is to report the place of EBUS probe using a single- channel bronchoscope that allows TBNA after localisation of lymph nodes under ultrasound in the diagnosis of mediastinal ...

Human brucellosis is a multisystem and potentially lethal disease of zoonotic origin with highly variable and nonspecific clinical presentation. Although lymphadenopathy in the course of brucellosis is 10-20%,there is only one case of isolated cervical LAP as unique manifestation. We hereby present a case of isolated cervical LAP due to ...

Streptococcus pneumoniae is the major bacterium of morbidity and mortality in children. The risk of development of meningitis can increase in periorbital cellulitis. Bacteremia secondary to infection of the periorbital tissue may result in meningeal seeding. Alternatively, concomitant seeding to both meninges and periorbital tissue during a bacteremic episode can ...

Tuberculous peritonitis is an uncommon presentation of tuberculosis especially in children. The diagnosis of tuberculous peritonitis is difficult because of the variability of presentation, the protean nature of the manifestation and the limitation of diagnostic tests. Therefore, the diagnosis is often delayed and the rate of complications and mortality increases. ...

Sepsis is a significant cause of mortality and morbidity in newborn infants. Depending on the timing of symptoms and signs, sepsis during the neonatal period classically is divided into early-onset sepsis and late-onset sepsis. Primary risk factors for early-onset sepsis are prematurity, low birth weight, prolonged rupture of membranes, chorioamnionitis, ...

Hepatitis A infection is an acute, self limitting disease due to infection of the liver by hepatitis A virus, an enterically trasmitted virus which is a member of the Picornaviridae family. The infection may be asymptomatic or cause an acute hepatitis syndrome of varying degrees of severity up to and ...

Objective: Fever is one of the most common reasons for parents to bring their children to the emergency departments. Most parents believe that fever is not a sign of illness, they have numerous misconceptions about it as well as its management. The objectives of this study were to explore knowledge ...

We observed depredation of a Florida Scrub-Jay (Aphelocoma coerulescens) nest of 4-day-old nestlings in April 2008 by the red imported fire ant (Solenopsis invicta). This exotic species is known to depredate nests of other avian species, but we believe this is the first account of this species of fire ant ...

Previous research reports bait-fishing in seven different species of ardeids. Our observations of Black-crowned Night Herons (Nycticorax nycticorax) on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, USA are the first to detail both passive and active bait-fishing in the same species. These observations provide support for the hypothesis that passive bait-fishing is ...

We used hydrogen stable isotopes in feathers collected from 1998 through 2003 to examine if there was differential migration of juvenile Merlins (Falco columbarius) and Northern Harriers (Circus cyaneus) through the Florida Keys, USA in fall. We examined differences by gender, population, and intra-season variation for 120 Merlins and 60 ...

We present two noteworthy observations of foraging Turkey Vultures (Cathartes aura), including consumption of a marine toad (Bufo marinus) and a live juvenile cotton rat (Sigmodon hispidus). To our knowledge, these observations are the first reports of any North American vulture consuming B. marinus or a Turkey Vulture taking live ...

I report a case of snow bathing by House Finches (Carpodacus mexicanus), apparently the first for this species. As many as 15 finches bathed together, three to four at a time, in 18 cm of fresh loose snow in a manner typical when birds bathe in water or dirt: wings ...

We observed and video-taped actively nesting adult Eastern Bluebirds (Sialia sialis) repeatedly feeding abandoned conspecific juveniles in a nearby nest. We used molecular techniques to confirm these nestlings were unrelated to the adults that fed them. The most likely explanation for the observed behavior is that it was a mistake ...

Sprague's Pipit (Anthus spragueii) is a ground-nesting passerine of the northern mixed-grass prairie. Few studies have examined the natural history and demography of the species, and little information exists on its mating system or parental care. We installed video monitoring systems at 11 randomly selected pipit nests to study parental ...

We studied the breeding biology of Grasshopper Sparrows (Ammodramus savannarum) on restored grasslands in Maryland from 1999 to present. We report the first documented cases of social polygyny in this species. Polygyny increased reproductive success for males in two of four cases, but its rarity suggests it is only a ...

The fertility announcement hypothesis proposes that avian males should sing at a high rate when their mate is fertile to guard their paternity. We examined if male Song Sparrows (Melospiza melodia) sing more during the incubation period when they are free of constraints of physical mate guarding. We assessed song ...

Studies of song and its function in suboscine passerines are rare. We examined spatial and temporal variation in song structure in a wild population of Olive-sided Flycatchers (Contopus cooperi) and tested among hypotheses explaining this variation. Repeatable variation in song type was observed both within and among individuals. More than ...

Common Pigeons (Columba livia) and their feral domestic relatives nest in a variety of sites, but use of nests of other birds has not been reported. I documented 13 nesting attempts by feral Common Pigeons in seven large compound nests of Monk Parakeets (Myiopsitta monachus) in Cordoba, Argentina; at least ...

A variety of bird species have been shown to derive protection from nest predators by nesting in association with more aggressive or predatory species. We provide the first evidence of this interaction for a hummingbird. Black-chinned Hummingbird (Archilochus alexandri) nests in southeast Arizona were found near the nests of two ...
