Surgical Biopsy of Pathologically Enlarged Lymph Nodes: A Reappraisal.
Authors: Dorfman T, Neymark M, Begal J, Kluger Y Abstract BACKGROUND: Enlarged lymph nodes (ELN) pose a great diagnostic challenge. They may represent the first clinical finding of a hematologic disease or other malignancy and may be an indication of a wide range of infectious and non-infectious diseases. Because many patients undergo percutaneous biopsy, surgical excisional biopsy is not often considered. OBJECTIVES: To analyze indications for a patient's referral for surgical biopsy of ELN and diagnostic steps to follow until referral, and to determine the number of ELN. METHODS: A retrospective study was...

Clinical and Molecular Characteristics of Eight Israeli Families with Thyroid Hormone Receptor Beta Mutations.
CONCLUSIONS: Clinical heterogeneity due to THRB mutations cannot be explained by the variant rs2596623. Mothers and newborns with THRB mutations seem to be at increased risk of certain complications, such as gestational hypertension and poor intrauterine and postnatal growth. However, these issues are usually mild, suggesting that routine intervention to regulate thyroid hormone levels may not be warranted in these patients.
