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 ...
Mitchell A O - - 1991
A case of endometriosis involving the superficial femoral lymphatic chain is presented. We feel that it is significant due to the rare location and the implications for diagnosis and therapy. It is our opinion that endometriosis should be included in the differential diagnosis of groin masses in menstruating women. A ...
Shiraishi T - - 1991
A case of catamenial pneumothorax (CPT) was presented. The patient is a 34-year-old Japanese woman who had two histories of right pneumothorax occurring simultaneously with the menstruation. A thoracotomy, several blue cysts and tiny perforations were noted in the diaphragm. Partial excision of the lesion gave a favorable result. Pathological ...

Endometriosis is a puzzling condition and the literature is characterized by a large number of uncontrolled reports on its aetiology and pathophysiology. In particular the relationship between mild endometriosis and subfecundity is uncertain. This paper critically reviews the published literature on the pathogenesis, prevalence, menstrual symptomatology and natural history of ...
Ito S - - 1990
Osteomas involving the middle ear and causing a functional disturbance are rare. We report a case of a patient with an osteoma arising from the lateral semicircular canal. The main symptom was vertigo and to halt this the defect of the canal was obliterated with a bone chip and fibrin ...
Zanasi S - - 1990
The authors present a case of osteoid osteoma which is of interest not only because of the extreme rarity of its localisation in the 1st metacarpal, but also because of its unusual clinical features. These consisted of atypical pain, which was constant and did not respond to salicylates. There was ...
Dushay K M - - 1990
A patient with myasthenia gravis presenting as respiratory failure was unusual in his lack of peripheral neuromuscular involvement, negative results on many commonly used diagnostic tests, and lack of response to firstline therapeutic measures. Review of the pertinent literature revealed no previously described presentation of myasthenia gravis in this manner.
Bradford J A - - 1989
Endometriosis involving the ureter is a relatively rare phenomenon but at least 121 cases have been reported previously. The 3 cases presented in this report emphasize some important facets of this condition: the lack of symptoms leading to late diagnosis, the presence of severe renal damage with very localized pelvic ...

The authors report 12 cases of osteoid osteoma of the elbow. They emphasize the peculiarity of the clinical, radiographic and histological pictures and discuss the criteria for differential diagnosis with other tumours, pseudotumours and inflammatory lesions of bone. The results obtained are discussed in the light of data emerging from ...
Marlowe F I - - 1989
A number of reports describe the otolaryngologic manifestations of myasthenia gravis. Symptoms such as dysphagia, dysarthria, and dysphonia are quite common to myasthenia gravis, yet the usual onset of this disorder is insidious in nature. We report a case of an 18-year-old woman, previously undiagnosed, who presented with acute dysphagia ...
Pescarmona E - - 1989
A case of a myasthenic patient with the association of unifocal histiocytosis X (eosinophilic granuloma) and lymphoid follicular hyperplasia of the thymus is presented. The combined diagnosis was made on histological grounds and supported by immunohistochemistry. Two aspects of this case are of interest: (1) it is the first reported ...
Byrne D J - - 1989
The case of a 65 year old female with myasthenia gravis and hypercalcaemia is presented. Failure of medical control of the myasthenia necessitated thymectomy at which time parathyroid exploration was also carried out. This revealed parathyroid hyperplasia and a thymoma. This association has not been previously documented in the literature.
Aloi F G - - 1989
A case of unilateral linear basal cell nevus, diffuse osteoma cutis, unilateral anodontia, and abnormal bone mineralization is reported. Unlike the anodontia, the unilateral linear basal cell nevus and osteoma cutis began to appear in adulthood. A hamartomatous process is suggested to explain these conditions. This complex syndrome has not ...

Bucci M N - - 1989
An unusual case of atlanto-axial rotational limitation secondary to an osteoid osteoma of the axis is presented. Transoral microsurgical resection followed by physical therapy improved the clinical symptoms. This case illustrates several unique problems within the cervical spine as well as the efficacy of the transoral approach to the axis.
Grimm M H - - 1988
We have reported a case of hemoptysis caused by pulmonary parenchymal endometriosis which was apparently successfully treated with danazol. Bronchopulmonary endometriosis is a very unusual cause of hemoptysis, and should be suspected on the basis of cyclic hemoptysis with menstruation. Danazol is effective therapy, but information regarding optimal dosage and ...
Marana R - - 1988

Pan C H - - 1988
Two cases of simultaneous occurrence of myasthenia gravis (MG) and thymolipoma are described and 4 previously reported cases are reviewed. In all 6 cases, thymectomy was performed. Pre- and postoperatively, the clinical status of the patients was similar to that of late-onset MG without thymolipoma. It is possible that simultaneous ...
Savini R - - 1988
After reviewing the international literature the authors present three new cases of osteoid osteoma with vertebral body localisation, two in the lumbar region, and one in the cervical region. This rare localisation necessitates the use of accurate instrumental techniques, based on radiography, scintigraphy, and in particular, CT scanning, in order ...
Jepsen J M - - 1988
We report 2 cases of ureteral endometriosis in which initial hormonal management, including danazol, failed to reverse or to stop the progressing ureteral stenosis. After reviewing the various methods of treatment presented in the literature we conclude that solid documentation of the effect of danazol against ureteral endometriosis is lacking. ...
Chiu H C - - 1988
The G2m(n) allotype was significantly increased in Chinese female and high autoantibody cases, and in caucasians with pure ocular myasthenia, or undetectable autoantibody. In contrast to the strong Glm(x) association reported in Japanese, no overall Gm haplotype, or Am or Km allotype association was found in 90 (Taiwan) Chinese and ...
Rosenbeck J - - 1988
A case of endometriosis causing ureteral obstruction in a young woman was observed for 3.5 years. The conclusion is that early diagnosis is important and that intravenous pyelography must be carried out at the slightest suspicion. In some cases initial treatment with Danazol alone can be tried. Otherwise the treatment ...
van der Wal N - - 1987
The occurrence of an osteoma or chondroma in the soft tissues of the oral cavity is rather uncommon. This anomaly occurs mainly on the tongue. Less than 60 cases have been published in the literature. In the first part of this treatise, 2 other patients are described, a 61-year-old female ...
Clausen I - - 1987
Recently we found one case of endometriosis in the extraperitoneal part of the round ligament (EERL). We found 30 cases previously described in the literature. A comparison showed that 90% were right-sided and often associated with an inguinal hernia. Fertility seemed to be below normal. In four of the cases ...
