The standard analysis of autonomic specimens indicated a relative reduction in a response of the parasympathetic link of the autonomic nervous system in patients with coronary heart disease than in those with neurocirculatory dystonia. It is reported most frequently in the setting of acute dehydration, cyanotic congenital heart disease, or the nephrotic syndrome and it is commonly found in patients with hereditary coagulation or immunologic disorders.
A new approach was proposed to analyze the specimens with deep slow respiration, which included the construction of rhythmograms, followed by the determination of an asymmetry coefficient and a reduction index. A case of intramuscular hemangioma (large vessel type) occurring in an eighteen year old woman is described. Angiosarcomas and liposarcomas are the two tumors to be differentiated from hemangiomas of skeletal muscle.
Patients with coronary heart disease were found to have an asymmetric rhythmogram while those with neurocirculatory dystonia had a symmetric one. These two cases provides the Authors with the opportunity of reviewing clinical features, genetics and radiological patterns of this rare syndrome.
The content and composition of cardiac phospholipids (PL) were investigated under the action of a new neuroactive inhibitory amino acid designed on the molecular basis. injection of the drug in rats was shown to cause no changes in PL levels and to alter the composition of metabolically important PL fractions (phosphatidylinositol, phosphatidylserine).
These changes may be involved in the nonspecific adaptation of the heart to damaging exposures and in the cardioprotective action of substances, such as antihypoxants. In this report we describe a multifocal liver pseudotumor of a 52 year man who underwent a selective hepatectomy for a clinical and radiological suspicion of a liver cell carcinoma.
The use of a gallbladder patch to cover duodenal wall defects was attempted on 36 dogs. This defect was surgically induced on the second part of the duodenum. All the dogs survived and had an uneventful postoperative course. Medical history reported a pulled muscle in the same region 5 years earlier. By needle biopsy was performed the diagnosis of hematoma evolved to sclerosis.
The healing of the defect was satisfactory and the structure and thickness of the graft remained unchanged This method could be a suitable alternative in the treatment of large duodenal defects, especially in the presence of other intra-abdominal injuries, and when the use of other graft material is not feasible.
The relative paucity of cases combined with widespread histological pictures make the diagnosis very difficult. The inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) of the liver is a tumor-like lesion of unknown etiology and pathogenesis. Non infectious by definition the lesion is considered to be a long-lasting inflammatory process.
Our case reveals same histological and immunohistochemical features already reported in literature. This anomaly associated with Robinow syndrome has never been reported before. Primary and metastatic tumors involving the liver need to enter in the differential diagnosis but IPT lacks features of malignancy and the cell population is mixed.
Although there is no specific marker for this lesion in cases featuring malignancy immunohistochemistry may be useful for a differential diagnosis: S-100 in cases of neurofibrosarcomas, actin and myosin for rhabdomyosarcomas, cytokeratin for epithelial tumors. We describe a 11-months old boy with cerebral venous thrombosis likely attributable to dehydration and iron deficiency anemia by intestinal chronic blood loss, caused by food allergy.
Cerebral venous thrombosis is an infrequent cause of childhood stroke. Thrombotic tendencies may also occur in children with iron deficiency anemia. The Authors describe a case of renal agenesis with ipsilateral ovarian dysplasia. The clinical features are abdominal mass and pain and then the treatment is laparoscopic ablation.
