We describe a patient with essential thrombocythemia (ET) who developed multiple myeloma (MM) 5 years after the initial diagnosis. A review of the literature revealed no additional reports of the association of these two diseases. Development of MM was not related to treatment of essential thrombocythemia. This association suggests an ...

Granuloma annulare is an uncommon skin condition, most often found on the extremities of young females. A case of granuloma annulare occurring on the penis of a 61 year old man is reported and the current literature associating granuloma annulare and conditions likely to present to genitourinary clinics is reviewed.

The transtympanic electrocochleography is performed on more than 1000 patients with various hearing loss. The registration technique in brief as well as some interesting findings (endolymphatic hydrops, neural hearing loss due to multiple sclerosis, mitochondrial cytopathology) will be presented. The indications of the electrocochleography as an audiological topo-diagnostic tool will ...

Multiple sclerosis is an uncommon demyelinating condition in Singapore. The commonest mode of presentation here is in the form of Devic's syndrome. Although our patients here have shown classical findings with respect to clinical features, neuroimaging studies and electrophysiologic tests, abnormal cerebrospinal fluid changes have not been reported locally. We ...

Juvenile laryngotracheobronchial papillomatosis (JLTBP) is a recurrent, prolonged disease usually confined to the upper airway. Rarely, tracheobronchial tree or lung parenchymal involvement occurs. The various therapeutic interventions are often unsuccessful once extralaryngeal involvement becomes apparent. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) has been successful in eradicating JLTBP in a few case reports. We ...

We managed a case of amylase-producing multiple myeloma with extensive extramedullary spread. We reviewed five cases of amylase-producing multiple myeloma, including this case. This type of multiple myeloma has shown unique clinicopathologic features. (1) A distinct elevation of the serum amylase activity was demonstrated in all five patients. The amylase ...

Thirty cases of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) supported by respirators for more than 1 year beyond respiratory failure were followed to estimate the progression of their voluntary motor impairment. The extremities were apt to be affected within two years of the onset of the disease, but complete voluntary paralysis occurred ...

The sudden appearance of multiple keratoacanthomas in a patient who has sustained a thermal burn is extremely uncommon. This case report describes a sixty-four-year-old man who noted multiple keratoacanthomas within three weeks after being involved in a gasoline explosion. Multiple keratoacanthomas appear to be a rare complication of thermal cutaneous ...

A case of intracranial histiocytosis X with multiple parenchymal brain lesions is described. Despite severe neuroradiological findings, and involvement of a node and vertebra on presentation, the child is doing well clinically, with outpatient chemotherapy, 36 months after diagnosis. The prognosis of cerebral involvement in such atypical cases should probably ...

To investigate blood-barrier leakage of plasma proteins in acute plaques of multiple sclerosis (MS) the authors used immunocytological methods to examine frozen tissue removed at autopsy from recently active cases. Annular patterns of protein-rich leakage were seen which may help to elucidate the patterns observed using gadolinium-enhanced nuclear magnetic resonance ...

Some difficulties in the diagnosis of multiple myeloma are presented. The atypical onset (pseudorheumatismal, anaemic, renal or neurological one) as well as the presence of a biological syndrome during some other diseases which may generate the confusion with the multiple myeloma are discussed with reference to the personal casuistry (30 ...

We have recently observed an unusual case of multiple myeloma with double Bence Jones proteinuria. Immunofixation clearly demonstrated monoclonal light chains of both kappa and lambda type in the urine. By double immunofluorescence staining, 11% of myeloma cells were found to be double producers. The marginal portion of cytoplasmic Russell ...

Eosinophilic granuloma is one of the three clinical variants of Histiocytosis-X (eosinophilic granuloma, Hand-Schüller-Christian and Letterer-Siwe disease). Involvement of the temporal bone is relatively rare and initially silent. However, it can erode the mastoid cortex, destroy the tegmen and extend into the cranial vault, as well as erode the semicircular ...

Prolonged administration of diphenylhydantoin (DPH) has been implicated as a possible etiologic factor in immunological aberrations and lymphoproliferative disorders. Diphenylhydantoin may account for the increase in susceptibility to lymphoproliferative diseases, as a result of its immunosuppressive effect. We report a case of amyloidosis with monoclonal gammopathy which developed during DPH ...

A review of 158 cases of multiple meningiomas reported in the literature and 7 additional cases are presented. The average incidence of multiple meningiomas is 2.5% of all meningiomas. In the absence of cutaneous manifestations of von Recklinghausen's disease, it is extremely difficult to distinguish between cases associated with central ...

In three patients with long-standing multiple sclerosis, bullous pemphigoid developed. The diagnosis of bullous pemphigoid was based on histologic findings, direct and indirect immunofluorescence, and Western blots showing IgG reacting with the 220 to 240 kD bullous pemphigoid antigen in the serum of three patients. Contrary to previous observations, bullous ...

Uptake of Tc-99m MDP by extraskeletal tissues is a rare, serendipitous finding during bone scanning studies. It can be clinically correlated with the presence of hypercalcemia in association with renal failure, as may occur in multiple myeloma. While the precise mechanism of non-osseous uptake of MDP is not certain, it ...
Sheat J M - - 1988
We report two patients with multiple sclerosis which illustrate problems in the interpretation of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) protein studies used to confirm diagnosis. In one case a polyclonal increase in IgG synthesis, secondary to an aseptic meningitis, masked oligoclonal banding, which was confirmed on subsequent examination. In the second ...
