The tumors of the ear.

[The tumors of the ear]. Presse Med. 2017 Oct 30;: Authors: Dubernard X, Kleiber JC, Brenet E, Louges MA, Veleine Y, Labrousse M, Makeieff M, Bazin A, Chays A Abstract Any cutaneous lesion of the outer ear must be managed jointly by a dermatologist and an ENT, regardless of the age of the patient. The presence of a malignant cutaneous carcinoma (Squamous cell carcinoma or melanoma) of the pavilion requires a minimum extension assessment by a cervical ultrasound, CT-scan and MRI will be prescribed according to the degree of infiltration and the presence of clinics signs (lymphadenopathy, facial paralysis, cognitive impairment). A polyp of the external auditory meatus must be systematically biopsied in consultation and, if necessary, in the operating room with fresh anatomopathological analysis. Any "otitis externa", which does not progress favorably under local treatment, must lead to eliminate a tumoral pathology of the external acoustic meatus or of the middle ear. Any suspicion of cholesteatoma should lead to an ENT consultation to confirm the diagnosis and consider its treatment to limit the auditory dysfunction. Any unilateral neurosensorial hearing loss or unilateral vestibular involvement with normal otoscopy should lead to eliminate a inner ear tumor by an MRI of the inner ear and the ponto-cerebellar angle in millimeter sections.

Resumo O aneurisma de art éria poplítea (AAP) é o mais frequente dos aneurismas periféricos, correspondendo a 85% do total de aneurismas. Normalmente, são assintomáticos, e o diagnóstico, em geral, é feito por meio do exame físico, tendo uma maior incidência no sexo masculino e em idosos. São bilaterais em 50% dos casos e, em 60% das vezes, estão associados a aneurisma de aorta abdominal. Apresentamos um paciente do sexo masculino com 72 anos de idade, com duas massas pulsáteis em ambas as regiões poplíteas, assintom&aac...

Cancer immunology drugs, which harness the body ’s immune system to better attack cancer cells, have significantly changed the face of cancer treatment. People with aggressive cancers are now living longer, healthier lives. Unfortunately, cancer immunology therapy only works in a subset of patients.Now, a new study from scientists at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center helps explain why some people with advanced cancer may not respond to one of the leading immunotherapies, PD-1 blockade, and how a new combination approach may help overcome resistance to the immunotherapy drug.TheUCLA study, published today i...

Abstract The main constituents of the Euterpe oleracea Mart., Arecaceae, fruits (a çaí) are anthocyanins. This paper aimed to standardize the extraction process and characterize an anthocyanin-rich dry extract obtained from this fruit. A 23 full factorial design was used. The volumes of ethanol 92% and acetic acid and the extraction time were used as factors. Total solids and an thocyanins content were used as feedback. The dry extract was obtained by freeze-drying. The content of anthocyanins was determined spectrophotometrically. Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy, Differential Scanning Calorimeter, Th...
