These Adorable Atlanta Children's Hospital Patients Are Pumped For The Super Bowl

Football fans across the Atlanta area are gearing up to watch the Falcons face the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl on Sunday. In fact, even the tiniest Falcons fans are getting in the spirit.  Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) posted photos of young patients decked out in their Falcons gear on Facebook. One special fan is 17-month-old Wyatt Keeton. Wyatt was born at 37 weeks and diagnosed with spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia, a rare form of dwarfism. He was later diagnosed with spinal cord stenosis, a condition that commonly occurs in dwarfism when a child’s head is disproportionate to his or her smaller frame and causes pressure on the spinal cord.  “Cervical collars were used to reduce pressure and avoid surgery,” CHOA representative Chrissie Gallentine told The Huffington Post. “Today, thanks to a fashionable set of 30 collars, Wyatt’s spinal stenosis is almost completely resolved ― and there is no surgery in his future.” Another little Falcons fan in the hospital is 15-month-old Ella. When she was 7 months old, Ella was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH). She’s been living at the Aflac Cancer Center of CHOA for about two months. During the NFC Championship game, Elle wore a special Falcons hospital gown that her grandmother made.  CHOA has a special relationship with the Atlanta Falcons. Before the NFC Championship game, the network of hospitals made a...

Authors: Colacurci N, Schettino MT, Grimaldi V, De Luca FP, Mansueto G, Costa D, Cacciatore F, De Franciscis P, Napoli C Abstract The aim of this study was to characterize both by flow cytometry analysis and immunohistochemistry cervix uteri cells of nulliparous women screened for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) in comparison to a group without CIN by using mesenchymal stem cell-like and hematopoietic lineage markers. A significant expression for CD29, CD38, HLA-I and HLA-II was correlated positively to the CIN degree and it was more relevant in patients positive for human papilloma virus (HPV). Thus, iden...

Conclusion: Multisystem LCH may rapidly occur, may be oligosymptomatic and, even in high-risk cases, remission without specific therapy might occur. Whether alkaline phosphatase might be a surrogate to monitor osseous disease activity has to be further explored.Case Rep Oncol 2017;10:876 –884

Rationale: Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) involves mainly the skin and bone and rarely the thyroid. Meanwhile, papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common subtype of thyroid cancer. Both LCH and PTC could make the thyroid enlarged and hypermetabolic. The coincidence of these 2 events in a patient is rare, and this paper aimed to report such case. Patient concerns: A 40-year-old man presented with polyuria and polydipsia for 5 years. The symptoms had been relieved well by drug therapy for>4 years, until the drugs could not control the symptoms anymore and an extensively enlarged thyroid gland was noticed. ...
