Authors: Lu X, Forte AJ, Sawh-Martinez R, Wu R, Cabrejo R, Wilson A, Steinbacher DM, Alperovich M, Alonso N, Persing JA Abstract The dysplastic maxilla and retracted zygoma characterize Apert's syndrome. The relationship between the cranial base and facial development is believed to be influential and substantial. The purpose of this study is to explore the temporal relationships of maldevelopment of these structures to identify potential influence patterns. Fifty-four CT scans (unoperated Apert's, n = 18; control, n = 36) were included and divided into three age subgroups (0-6 months, 6 months-2 years, and 2-6 yea...

We describe a rare case of a severe gastric ulcer of a 66-year-old immunocompetent man who was associated with primary Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection and temporarily misdiagnosed with gastric lymphoma. A contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT-scan) of the thorax, abdomen and pelvis followed by EUS revealed a neoplastic infiltrative-ulcerative semicircumferentialgastric mass and a 1 cm large satellite adenopathy, being classified as T3N1M0 gastric neoplasia. The histological analysis of the ¾ distal stomach and lymph node sthat were resected contradicted the initial biopsy report, suggesting&nbs...
