An Incidental Finding of Subcutaneous Hemangioma During 99mTcO4 Salivary Gland Scintigraphy

A 43-year-old woman with papillary thyroid cancer prepared for 131I ablation after total thyroidectomy. With a history of type 2 diabetes for 10 years, she recently presented with periodontitis, candidiasis, and mouth dryness. 99mTcO4 scintigraphy was ordered to evaluate function of the salivary glands. The scintigraphy incidentally found a focal 99mTcO4 uptake in the left supraclavicular region. The subsequent neck ultrasonography showed a hypoechoic soft tissue mass with heterogeneous hypervascularity, suggestive of hemangioma.

Authors: Becquart O, Guillot B, Bourrain JL, Duflos C, Du-Thanh A Abstract The risk of skin cancer induced by photosensiting drugs is well known. An association between hydrochlorothiazide use and skin cancer has been recently published in some epidemiological studies. A systematic review of case-control or prospectives cohorts showed an increased risk of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma even if some confusing factors such as tobacco smoking was not analysed. Results are more conflicting for basal cell carcinoma or melanoma. These results do not modify the benefit/risk ratio but should lead to propose preventive m...

Authors: Bick I, Dowding D Abstract Nearly one million Medicare home health care beneficiaries are hospitalized annually of which one-quarter are considered preventable. Older hospitalized patients are at risk for nosocomial complications and poorer outcomes and incur higher health care costs. This paper reports the results of a systematic review of 28 studies on hospitalization risk factors of older home health care patients. It found that males, Blacks, and non-Asian minorities are at greater hospitalization risk. Factors associated with higher risk included skin ulcers, psychiatric conditions, dyspnea/COPD, card...

Authors: Gallicchio R, Mastrangelo PA, Nardelli A, Mainenti PP, Colasurdo AP, Landriscina M, Guglielmi G, Storto G Abstract Radium-223 dichloride (223Ra) is the first, recently approved, α-particle-emitting radiopharmaceutical for the treatment of patients with bone metastases in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) and no evidence of visceral metastases. We explored MEDLINE, relevant congresses, and websites for data on 223Ra and prostate cancer therapies, focusing on therapeutic strategies and timing, bone metastases, and diagnostic assessment. 223Ra represents the only bone-targeting agent that has ...

In this study, we used the same samples to perform RNA-seq to detect the global effects after the decrease of PmRunt expression. The transcription levels of several nacre shell matrix protein (NSMP) genes were significantly changed and the potential compensatory effect could happen internal gene families. Downregulation of PmRunt could also influence the biosynthesis of NSMPs through affecting amino acid metabolism, translation, protein processing and export. The inhibition of PmRunt also possibly affected the expression of caspases, IAPs and C1qs that related to apoptosis and immune. In addition, PmRunt highly expressed a...

KasselmanAbstractCardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death worldwide, despite multiple treatment options. In addition to elevated lipid levels, oxidative stress and inflammation are key factors driving atherogenesis and CVD. New strategies are required to mitigate risk and most urgently for statin-intolerant patients. The neuropeptide hormone oxytocin, synthesized in the brain hypothalamus, is worthy of consideration as a CVD ancillary treatment be...

ConclusionTaken together, the present findings suggested that matrine induced apoptosis and autophagy through down-regulating circ-104075 and Bcl-9 expression via inhibition of PI3K/AKT and Wnt-β-catenin pathways in glioma cells. The present study provides a foundation for further preclinical and clinical evaluations of matrine as a glioma therapy.

[Infantile haemangioma: an update]. Hautarzt. 2019 May 17;: Authors: Reimer A, Ott H Abstract Infantile haemangioma (IH) are the most frequent skin tumors in childhood. The diagnosis is usually established from the clinical picture and typical course of growth. Sectional imaging procedures are indicated in segmental, especially facial haemangiomas. The vast majority of IH are uncomplicated and do not require any treatment. In complicated IH, treatment should be initiated as soon as possible in order to avoid permanent damage. Propranolol is the treatment of choice for complicated IH. PMID: 311...
