Although every seventh or eighth case of endometriosis is found to have urinary involvement, this type of endometriosis is still rarely recognized. The symptoms are not specific and are frequently suggestive of a neoplastic process. On the basis of our two cases of histopathologically two types of endometriosis as well ...

Reports in the literature of an increasing incidence of endometriosis in industrialized countries and increasing problems with pollution in these countries leads to speculation about a possible link between one of the most harmful components of pollution, dioxin, and endometriosis. To establish this link, we need to examine three issues ...

The Evans calcaneal lengthening osteotomy has gained popularity in recent years for the treatment of symptomatic flexible pes planus deformity. To our knowledge, the occurrence of a stress fracture of the fifth metatarsal has not been reported after this procedure. We report two such cases and discuss the probable mechanism ...

BACKGROUND: Cranial osteomas are regarded by some as very common; yet their classification, symptomatology, and management have been neglected. METHODS: We report on a giant enostotic convexity osteoma and have reviewed the medical literature. RESULTS: A new comprehensive classification for cranial osteomas is proposed: (1) intraparenchymal, (2) dural, (3) skull ...

We report a case of vulvar endometriosis presenting as a vulvar mass following trauma in a 12 years old, 3 months post-menarcheal girl. The presumptive etiology is the direct implantation of endometrial cells. Painful swelling of the vulvar mass appeared gradually during menses. Excision of suspected vulvar endometriosis is suggested ...

Ascites is a rare but important complication of endometriosis because it mimics ovarian cancer. Most cases occur in nulliparous young black women and present with massive ascites. Treatment is effected by ablation of ovarian function by surgery, radiotherapy, or suppression of endometriosis by endocrine therapy. The pathogenesis is unknown. In ...

Endometriosis is only rarely the cause of massive bloody ascites. This entity simulates gynecological malignancy and is seldom recognized before surgical exploration of the abdomen. It is more commonly seen in black nulliparous females. Hormonal modulation has obviated the need for surgical resection, in some cases. We report a case ...

Osteomas of the temporal bone are benign neoplasms that may be encountered by otolaryngologists. Clinically they should be distinguished from exostoses, which involve the external auditory meatus and are a well recognized entity. Osteomas involving the middle ear and ossicles are extremely rare. There is only one case report in ...

Osteomas of the petrous temporal bone are rare and seldom symptomatic. This report describes an osteoma of the internal auditory canal, causing compression of the eighth nerve, leading to auditory and vestibular complaints. The symptoms were abolished by surgical decompression of the internal auditory canal and removal of the osteoma.
Takaoka K - - 1994
Ectopic bone formation was associated with osteoid osteoma in the anterior rim of the acetabulum. A factor, which has been speculated to be secreted from the nidus and is responsible for increased osteoblastic activity, also seemed to have the capacity to stimulate young mesenchymal cells to differentiate into an osteogenic ...

Stress fractures of the tarsal cuboid are rare. The literature contains three reported cases. This report presents two additional cases. These two occurred in collegiate athletes, and mimicked peroneal tendonitis on presentation. History, physical examination, plain radiographs, and bone scan were used for diagnosis. Treatment consisted of immobilization and activity ...

A fracture to the intermediate cuneiform that was not definitively detected on routine radiographs because of the overlap of the cuneiform was presented. Weightbearing x-rays did not provide additional information. The anatomical location of the fracture was identified only after a computed tomography scan was performed. An incidental finding, bilateral ...

Twenty cases of macroscopically non-neoplastic thymuses obtained from patients with myasthenia gravis have been studied histologically. Seven cases were characterized by lymphoid follicular hyperplasia and 13 by involutional changes of variable degree. In three cases (15%), one with lymphoid follicular hyperplasia and two with involutional changes, multiple microscopic epithelial lesions, ...

This paper reports a retrospective review of 91 patients with idiopathic thoracic scoliosis corrected by Zielke VDS instrumentation. The results were analysed to demonstrate the correction in all three planes. Satisfactory correction was obtained, and was particularly good in the sagittal and horizontal planes. There were no disadvantages from the ...

Gas gangrene of the liver is a very unusual cause of graft failure, and gas gangrene caused by Enterobacter cloacae is also exceedingly rare. Although Clostridial infection could not be excluded in this case, the literature and our case show that Enterobacter cloacae can be present in gas gangrene tissue ...
Klein M H - - 1992
Sixty-seven cases of osteoid osteoma were studied at the Hospital for Joint Diseases between 1980 and 1989. The lesions were categorized according to location: medullary, cortical, or subperiosteal and were further grouped as intracapsular and extracapsular. The histologic features of trabecular thickness, reactive bone formation, proportion of fibrovascular stroma, and ...
Wakata N - - 1992
We report 4 cases of myasthenia gravis in which myasthenic symptoms developed after a thymoma was known to be present. They include 3 invasive thymomas and one thymoma. In 3 of them, myasthenic symptoms developed 2-7 months after removal of the thymoma; in 1 case, myasthenic symptoms developed 11 years ...
Oosterbosch J - - 1992
We describe a typical case of a phalangeal osteoid osteoma in the hand. The clinical (night pain with complete relief with aspirin, tender local swelling) and radiographic features (a zone of bone sclerosis surrounding a small area of translucency) were obvious. We performed an "en bloc" excision with histological confirmation ...

The incidence of endometriosis at the episiotomy site is quite rare. We have experienced two cases of perineal endometriosis over a 9 year period. The typical clinical history and local findings enable us to make the correct diagnosis of both cases. The treatment of choice is complete surgical excision of ...
Aboulghar M A - - 1991
Transvaginal ultrasonically guided aspiration of pelvic endometriotic cysts was performed on 21 patients with recurrent endometriosis after previous surgical treatment. Their main complaint was pelvic pain and infertility. Further conservative surgery was considered a contraindication. The symptoms improved markedly following aspiration. During a 12 month follow-up, reaccumulation occurred in only ...
