We planned to histologically demonstrate unintentional ovarian harm caused by excision of endometriomas. One hundred and seven patients with 135 endometriomas had laparoscopic excision of endometriomas at a tertiary health-care clinic over a 6-year period. Records were obtained retrospectively and pathological specimens were reevaluated to demonstrate follicular loss. Tissue damage ...

Alopecias are broadly divided into scarring and non-scarring forms. From a clinical perspective, follicular ostia are preserved in non-scarring alopecia, while histopathologically, there is preservation of follicular unit architecture, presence of intact sebaceous glands, and normal to near normal numbers of hair follicles. In chronic, long-standing non-scarring alopecias, follicular drop ...

Bilateral vestibulopathy (BV) is the loss of function of both peripheral labyrinths or of the eighth nerves. Its aetiology remains obscure in approximately 20 to 50% of cases (so-called idiopathic bilateral vestibulopathy, IBV). Alternatively, the cause could be viral or vascular; to date, causative gene mutations have not been identified. ...

The finding of a colloid cyst on neuroimaging is often incidental. These lesions are usually located at the foramen of Monro, are hyperdense on CT scans, and generally demonstrate signal intensity of water on MR images, although this depends on their content. When symptomatic, they frequently present with headaches and ...

Primary aspergillosis usually affects the paranasal sinuses, orbit, ear, and lower respiratory tract. Laryngeal aspergillosis usually occurs as a result of secondary invasion from the tracheobronchial tree, more commonly in immunocompromised hosts. Primary laryngeal localization of Aspergillus infection is seldom encountered. We report the case of an immunocompetent 42-year-old man ...

Hydatidosis is an important zoonotic disease of worldwide distribution, causing important health problems to humans and major economical losses in infected livestock. Echinococcus granulosus, the etiological agent of hydatid disease, induces a humoral immune response in the intermediate host (human and herbivorous) against hydatid cyst antigens. Specifically, IgGs are found ...

Abstract Tissue cyst stages are an intriguing aspect of the developmental cycle and transmission of members of the Family Sarcocystidae. Tissue cyst stages of the genera Toxoplasma, Hammondia, Neospora, Besnoitia, and Sarcocystis contain many infectious stages (bradyzoites). The tissue cyst stage of Cystoisospora (syn. Isospora) contain only 1 infectious stage ...

Second branchial cleft cysts are almost always located in the neck. Their presence in the oropharynx is extremely rare. An oropharyngeal branchial cyst in a 4-year-old child diagnosed by magnetic resonance and histopathology was presented. Anatomic location and pathological findings indicated the second branchial pouch origin. The cyst was excised ...

leishmaniasis infection might manifest as sarcoidosis; on the other hand, some evidences propose an association between sarcoidosis and leishmaniasis. Most of the times, it is impossible to discriminate idiopathic sarcoidosis from leishmaniasis by conventional histopathologic exam. We performed a cross-sectional study to examine the association of sarcoidosis with leishmaniasis in ...

Background/Aim: Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a non-invasive malignant breast lesion. Patients diagnosed with a DCIS on percutaneous biopsy usually undergo resection, and the final pathology may reveal that the lesion was in fact invasive (upgrading at surgery), this leading to treatment strategy change during its course. The aim ...

Opisthorchiasis in northeastern Thailand is an important etiology of cholangiocarcinoma. To form the infectious stage, free swimming cercariae penetrate cyprinid fish, shed their tails, and then secret a cystic substance to cover their larval stage to form metacercariae in the fish body. We determined the location of the cystogenous glands ...
