Neoplastic proliferation of plasma cells is called plasma cell dyscrasias, and these neoplasms can present as a solitary neoplasm or multiple myeloma. Extramedullary plasmacytoma, in particular pancreatic plasmacytoma, is a rare manifestation of multiple myeloma. Although computerized tomography is useful for the diagnosis of extramedullary plasmacytoma, there are no specific ...

The intestinal parasites Cryptosporidium and Giardia are transmitted by water and food and cause human gastroenteritis. Filter-feeding bivalve mollusks, such as oysters and mussels, filter large volumes of water and thus concentrate such pathogens, which makes these bivalves potential vectors of disease. To assess the risk of infection from consumption ...

A 56-year-old man presented with tingling ulcers on the feet. On further skin examination, papules on the knees were observed. Biopsies revealed extravascular eosinophilic deposits of IgM, and Waldenström macroglobulinaemia was diagnosed. The skin manifestations have resolved with chemotherapy. Peripheral neuropathy and storage papules are rare manifestations of Waldenström's macroglobulinaemia.
