A rare case of sinonasal glomangiopericytoma post operative accidental diagnosis and managment—A case report
ConclusionThis is the typical case of converting dual modality treatment to single modality with the help of knowledge, communication, transparent team work. This also a rare type of neoplasm and by reporting this rare case we are contributing to data pool of nasal tumors where lack of reporting is major obstacle in the formation of uniform treatment guidelines.
ConclusionCLE is a useful tool for prediction of histology to assess the polypoidal lesions of the GI tract, and it may avoid polypectomy at least in some patients.

We present the case of a 7-year-old male patients, diagnosed at the age of 3 years with PJS due to a surgical intervention for acute abdominal pain that revealed a rectal polyp associated with hyperpigmented maculae on the lips and oral mucosa. His family history revealed the same condition in his mother, who was diagnosed much later, at the age of 25 years. Diagnoses: The upper and lower digestive endoscopy revealed multiple polyps of different sizes within the stomach, and 2 polyps at 5 cm from the anal orifice. The barium enterography revealed 3 polyps within the ileum. Interventions: We administered blood trans...
A 59-year-old woman with no medical history presented because of pain in the right hypochondrium and loss of weight. Abdominal examination showed hepatomegaly, and laboratory test results showed increased liver enzymes. Abdominal examination and CT showed multiple hepatic metastatic lesions with enhancement after injection, the biggest one involving the left lobe of the liver (A). Her levels of angiotensin-converting enzyme, carbohydrate antigen 19-9, and α-fetoprotein were normal. The result of upper endoscopy was normal, whereas colonoscopy revealed an ulcerated sessile rectal polyp measuring 15 mm (B).
Sporadic duodenal and/or ampullary adenomas are found in 1-3% of patients referred to upper endoscopy. Patients with duodenal adenomas have a 3-7-fold increased risk of colonic neoplasia above the normal population. It is unknown whether these patients have a clinically significant increased risk of small bowel neoplasia. Video capsule endoscopy (VCE) identifies Small bowel (SB) polyps in up to 75% of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) patients. Our aim was to investigate the prevalence of SB polyps occurring in association with large ( ≥10mm) sporadic duodenal or ampullary adenoma patients using VCE.
This study aims to investigate the role of serum cancer antigen 72-4 (CA72-4) in the diagnosis of GC in a healthy population. A total of 7757 adults who underwent upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and serum CA72-4 level measurement in multicenters in Taiwan from January 2006 to August 2016 were recruited in this retrospective study. Risk factors for GC, serum tumor markers, and esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) findings were evaluated. High serum levels of CA72-4 were found in 7.2% of healthy adults. CA72-4 level showed lower sensitivity (33.3%) but higher specificity (92.8%); however, the positive predictive value was quite...

This study was carried out in accordance with approval of the Melbourne Health and Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research's Human Research Ethics Committee (approval number: 2013.081). All subjects gave written informed consent for participation and publication. Results and Discussion TGF-β signaling in NK cells is associated with: phosphorylation in SMAD2 and 3, inhibition of IL-15-induced metabolism/proliferation, simultaneous downregulation of CD44, CD49e, and Eomes, and upregulation of CD16 and CD49a expression (7, 10). SMAD family member 4 (SMAD4) belongs to the SMAD family of transcription...
A 67-year-old woman was admitted to our department for one-month duration of asthenia. She was previously operated of upper right lobectomy for a high-grade sarcomatoid carcinoma. The patient was hemodynamically stable. Hemoglobin was 5.4 g/dL, and she was transfused with three blood units. An upper gastrointestinal endoscopy was carried out and it was unremarkable; a colonoscopy was then performed and a voluminous ulcerated polyp with a large base of implantation of the proximal descending colon was seen and removed without compl ications (Fig.
