1. Ovarian cysts in young girls with hypothyroidism: follow-up and effect of treatment.
Match Strength: 7.850
Ovarian cysts have been reported in girls with longstanding uncompensated primary hypothyroidism. Restoration of euthyroid state has been associated with resolution of these cysts; long-term follow-up of these patients is however lacking. We evaluated the outcome in ten girls with ovarian cysts and hypothyroidism managed at our hospital with special emphasis on subsequent pubertal development and ovarian imaging. Patients were diagnosed at the age of 8.6 +/- 2.3 years (mean +/- SD) with severe uncompensated primary hypothyroidism (TSH levels >100 mIU/l in all; 509.3 +/- 651 mIU/l) and ... Read More »

3. Unicameral (simple) bone cysts.
Match Strength: 7.582
Since their original description by Virchow, simple bone cysts have been studied repeatedly. Although these defects are not true neoplasms, simple bone cysts may create major structural defects of the humerus, femur, and os calcis. They are commonly discovered incidentally when x-rays are taken for other reasons or on presentation due to a pathologic fracture. Various treatment strategies have been employed, but the only reliable predictor of success of any treatment strategy is the age of the patient; those being older than 10 years of age heal their cysts at a higher rate than those under ...

4. Ultrasonographic screening for cystic echinococcosis in sheep in Tunisia.
Match Strength: 6.926
Sheep from the areas of Fondouk-Jeddid, Bir Mchergua and El Fahs, located in the Northeast of Tunisia, were examined by ultrasonography between 2001 and 2004 in order to assess their infection with Echinococcus granulosus, the agent of hydatid disease, and to evaluate this method as an efficient aire for hydatid cysts. A total of 1039 sheep, aged between 1 and 14 years was examined. The highest prevalence was found in sheep aged more than 8 years. The least infected animals were aged between 1 and 2 years. All hydatid cysts detected by ultrasound were located in the liver. In all age-groups, ... Read More »

6. A case of benign retroperitoneal cyst of Mullerian type in kidney transplant patient.
Match Strength: 6.673
Mullerian cysts of the retroperitoneum, which considered to be a subtype of urogenital cysts, are extremely rare disease entities. Herein we have presented successful excision from a second kidney transplantation from a brain-dead donor to a 38-year-old woman with previous kidney graft failure. During the second cadaveric kidney transplantation operation, two fist-sized cysts were found in the left retroperitoneal pelvic space extending from the left common iliac artery to the prevesical region, which compromised the iliac vessels for vascular anastomosis. After complete cyst excision, ... Read More »

9. Cryptosporidium and Giardia in commercial and non-commercial oysters (Crassostrea gigas) and water from the Oosterschelde, The Netherlands.
Match Strength: 6.026
The intestinal parasites Cryptosporidium and Giardia cause gastro-enteritis in humans and can be transmitted via contaminated water. Oysters are filter feeders that have been demonstrated to accumulate pathogens such as Salmonella, Vibrio, norovirus and Cryptosporidium from contaminated water and cause foodborne infections. Oysters are economically important shellfish that are generally consumed raw. Commercial and non-commercial oysters (Crassostrea gigas) and oyster culture water from the Oosterschelde, The Netherlands, were examined for the presence of Cryptosporidium oocysts and Giardia ...

12. Pathogenesis of balls in mature ovarian cystic teratoma. Report of 3 cases and review of literature.
Match Strength: 4.991
Ovarian cystic teratomas with intracystic balls are rare, and only 11 cases have been reported since 1946. We present 2 new cases and review the literature for the clinical presentation and morphological appearances of the cysts and balls. We also present our histology findings on a third case reported in the international literature. The pathogenesis of balls formation is unknown. We put forward a hypothesis based on the forces which control the production and absorption of the intracystic contents and also recommendations for investigators who may encounter this lesion. We believe that ... Read More »

13. Do pathologies associated with impacted lower third molars justify prophylactic removal? A critical review of the literature.
Match Strength: 4.908
Surgical removal of impacted lower third molars is widely carried out in general dental practice and in many institutional clinics. Despite the fact that there are well established indications for the removal of impacted lower third molars, prophylactic removal of these teeth is still being universally practiced. Some reports have estimated that the proportion of impacted third molars that are removed when no clinically sound justification for surgery is present is between 18% and 50.7%. Justifications for prophylactic surgery include the need to minimize the risk of disease (cysts and tumors) ... Read More »

14. Laser and light treatments for pilonidal cysts.
Match Strength: 4.839
Pilonidal (nest of hair) cysts are foreign body reactions accompanied by chronic inflammation. Current accepted treatments include the traditional conservative treatments or aggressive surgery. However, these modalities exhibit a high rate of disease recurrence, especially in patients with hirsutism; therefore, affected patients often are subjected to repeated surgical interventions. This report describes 5 patients treated with either a diode laser or intense pulsed light (IPL), which produced results leaving the patients recurrence free. Four of 5 patients remained recurrence free for 7 ... Read More »

18. Squamous cell carcinoma as a rare entity of primary liver tumor with grave prognosis.
Match Strength: 2.608
The development of primary squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the liver has only rarely been reported in association with pre-existing hepatic cysts and biliary tract diseases. This report describes an unusual case of SCC originating in a cirrhotic liver. A 63-year-old male alcoholic was incidentally found to have a 6-cm liver tumor which showed mixed echogenic by sonography and a low-density area with rim enhancement by computed tomography. Tumor biopsy led to a diagnosis of SCC with a sarcomatoid change. The tumor showed fatal rapid growth accompanied by abdominal pain. Transcatheter arterial ... Read More »

19. Stable knockdown of polycystin-1 confers integrin-alpha2beta1-mediated anoikis resistance.
Match Strength: 2.432
The mechanisms of action of polycystin-1 (PC1) have been difficult to dissect because of its interaction with multiple factors, the heterogeneity of the genetic mutations, and the complexity of the experimental animal models. Here, stable knockdown of PC1 in MDCK epithelial cells was achieved by lentiviral-mediated delivery of a specific small interfering RNA for PKD1. The reduction of PC1 expression prevented tubulogenesis in three-dimensional collagen type I culture in response to hepatocyte growth factor and induced formation of cysts. PC1 knockdown created a condition of haploinsufficiency ... Read More »
