Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumours of the lung: a case series

present in the lower lobes. However, radiographic images and invasive diagnostic procedures such as percutaneous fineneedle aspiration biopsy or bronchoscopy are considered insufficient for a clear diagnosis. Because of this, the best way of reaching a diagnosis and a therapeutic cure remains through surgery ( 5 , 8 ). Macroscopically, the most common presentation of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumours appears as wellcircumscribed, non-encapsulated, firm, usually yellow–white masses containing variable inflammation, haemorrhage, calcification, and rarely cavitations

Pneumonia by Kocuria rosea: case report and literature review

initiated. Systemic inflammatory response modulation was observed from the third day of hospitalisation in the ICU. Vasopressor support could be weaned and sedation suspended, and the extubation protocol was started. Bronchoscopy with bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) was performed with acid fast bacilli and Gram staining, reporting the presence of K. rosea After 5 days, the modulation of the inflammatory response and hemodynamic and respiratory status were achieved. Discussion Kocuria are non-encapsulated, non-endospore-forming Grampositive cocci from the

manifest as well-defined, hypervascular lesions, owing to their rich capillary network. Non-functioning tumors are larger in size (4 cm) at the time of detection, often well defined, encapsulated and show a heterogeneous enhancement. Rarely, they can be completely cystic, with a hypervascular rim in up to 90% of cases. Malignant tumors often show local invasion into the retroperitoneum and metastases (regional nodes and liver), and they can rarely involve the main pancreatic duct. 22 According to ENETS guideline, PET/CT with 68Ga-labelled somatostatin analogs DOTA

Madelung’s disease: case series and literature review

Abstract

Madelung’s disease also called benign symmetric lipomatosis is a rare disorder of unknown etiology. The disease affects almost exclusively middle-aged men with a history of multi-year alcohol abuse. The major symptom is presence of non-encapsulated benign fat masses, especially in the area of the head and neck. Limited head and neck movement, dysphagia, and dyspnea may appear as well.

The diagnosis is clinical and is supported by imaging methods, often elevated hepatic enzymes in blood serum, and histological examination with finding of mature adipose tissue without signs of proliferation. Therapeutic methods involve liposuction or excision which is a method of choice nowadays.

In this article the authors review current knowledge, research state, and present five cases of the Madelung’s disease occurring within the last 10 years at the Clinic of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery in Martin, Slovakia.

Diagnosis and management of complications of chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma

. Patients requiring treatment for CLL had increased risk of infection with the highest risks on patients treated with purine analoges or alemtuzumab. Patients treated with ibrutinib had higher risk of infection compared to treatment naive patients. Patient with CLL are reported to have a propensity to infection with encapsulated bacteria. A Danish study reported on 317 positive blood cultures in 3,822 patients, which occurred at a rate of 15.5 per 1,000 patient-years in treatment naive and 62.3 per 1,000 patient-years in treated patients.
