B-lymphoblastic lymphoma of the rectum.

We describe a 26-year-old man who presented with bleeding per rectum and fecal incontinence. Endoscopy showed a large nodular friable lesion narrowing the entire rectal lumen. Biopsy was diagnostic of B-lymphoblastic lymphoma. He was started on chemotherapy with the Berlin-Frankfurt-Münster protocol and achieved complete remission after induction chemotherapy. This is the first report of B-lymphoblastic lymphoma presenting as a rectal lesion in the world literature. PMID: 28670078 [PubMed - in process]

Seizures cause significant morbidity for example neurocognitive deterioration, which may result from seizures themselves or due to adverse effects from antiepileptic drugs. Management of tumour with surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy may contribute to seizure control, but tumour related epilepsy is often refractory despite adequate treatment with s...

ConclusionWe found a broad range of niche-related outcomes influencing QoL. Apart from symptoms evaluated in the literature such as AUB, abdominal pain and subfertility, clinicians and researchers should be more aware of sexual activity and self-esteem in this population.

In this study, four different weight% of Punica granatum fruit peel extract were used as green stabilizers to synthesize IONPs followed by a series of characterization experiments and in vitro anticancer evaluation. Results revealed that all synthesized IONPs have high degree of crystallinity and purity. The optimum saturation magnetization, and hydrodynamic size were found to be ∼69 emu.g−1, and 26.52 nm, respectively. Morphological studies demonstrated that adding peel extract decreased size of NPs with the average particle size below 11 nm. Cytotoxicity assay showed that the IONPs were not react...

ConclusionsAdjunctive procedures that can facilitate a decrease in the cumulative dosages of corticosteroids and immunosuppressants have great value in the management of PV. CO2 laser vaporization is a safe procedure with minimal morbidity and no long-term side effects and should be considered as an adjunctive treatment option for management of recalcitrant lesions in patients with oral PV.

ConclusionsThis case demonstrates the simultaneous presentation of multiple conditions. Oral biopsy revealed a solitary focus of granulomatous inflammation, indicative of orofacial granulomatosis. However, the biopsied lesion was also unusual in that inflammation extended into the epithelium, a relatively unusual feature for a granulomatous inflammatory disease and a pattern more commonly seen in vesiculobullous eruptions. Because this patient's CD was well controlled, it is difficult to believe that these oral lesions were associated with CD activity. One reasonable assumption is that the long-time treatment of the patien...
