1. Prosthetic rehabilitation of a midfacial defect resulting from lethal midline granuloma--a clinical report.
Match Strength: 6.413
Prosthetic rehabilitation of the midfacial defects has always perplexed maxillofacial prosthodontists. These midfacial defects lead to functional and cosmetic deficiencies. One of the causes of such defects is midline lethal granuloma, which is a destructive granulomatous lesion of uncertain aetiology, involving the nose, paranasal sinuses and the palate. Presented here is a clinical report of a 22-year-old male patient diagnosed to have lethal midline granuloma, who was referred to the Department of Prosthodontics, SDM College of Dental Sciences Dharwad. The patient had a severe midfacial ... Read More »

2. Postencephalitic chronic granulomatous disease.
Match Strength: 6.249
This report details the evolution of a case of herpes simplex encephalitis to chronic granuloma in a 13-year old female who, at the age of 8, suffered herpes simplex virus type 1 encephalitis. Eight months later, she developed an intracranial hypertension syndrome with the onset of a new lesion in the necrosed zone of her right temporal lobe, with no viral presence in the cerebrospinal fluid. The histologic characteristics were those of chronic granuloma with multinucleated giant cells and calcifications. Initially treated for neurosarcoidosis, the patient remained steroid-dependent for 4 ... Read More »

3. Role for matrix metalloproteinase 9 in granuloma formation during pulmonary Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection.
Match Strength: 5.405
Recent studies have shown that matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are induced by Mycobacterium tuberculosis during pulmonary infection. Here, expression of MMP-9 during pulmonary M. tuberculosis infection was characterized to determine whether its production correlated with disease resistance in vivo and to determine what role, if any, MMP-9 might have in granuloma formation. Following aerosol infection with M. tuberculosis, dissemination of bacilli occurred earlier in the C57BL/6 resistant mouse strain than in the susceptible CBA/J strain, as was evident from an increased number of bacteria in ...

4. The host's genetic background determines the extent of angiogenesis induced by schistosome egg antigens.
Match Strength: 4.405
Schistosomiasis is characterised by periovular granuloma formation within the portal tract and presinusoidal venules. As inflammation wanes, continued attempts to wall off and repair hepatic injury, lead to the development of extensive fibrosis. The codependence of chronic inflammation and angiogenesis is a well-known phenomenon. Neovascularisation is a complex process of endothelial cell proliferation and remodelling of the extracellular matrix. Previous studies demonstrated the ability of schistosome soluble egg antigens (SEAs) to stimulate endothelial cell activation in vitro. In the ... Read More »

5. Mac-1+ cells are the predominant subset in the early hepatic lesions of mice infected with Francisella tularensis.
Match Strength: 3.360
The cell composition of early hepatic lesions of experimental murine tularemia has not been characterized with specific markers. The appearance of multiple granulomatous-necrotic lesions in the liver correlates with a marked increase in the levels of serum alanine transferase and lactate dehydrogenase. Francisella tularensis, detected by specific antibodies, can be first noted by day 1 and becomes associated with the lesions by 5 days postinoculation. These lesions become necrotic, with some evidence of in situ apoptosis. The lesions do not contain B, T, or NK cells. Rather, the lesions are ... Read More »

6. Office steroid injections of the larynx.
Match Strength: 2.830
OBJECTIVE: Steroid injection into the larynx has been sporadically reported as helpful in benign lesions of the larynx. Its role in laryngology remains unclear. This study reviews the indications and results of 47 steroid injections in 34 patients in an office setting. METHODS: The authors conducted a retrospective review of 47 injections in 34 patients. Methylprednisolone acetate suspension, USP (40 mg/mL), was injected by indirect laryngoscopy under local anesthesia. Results were evaluated by stroboscopy and by perceptual evaluation of the GRABS scale before and after injection. Pre- versus ... Read More »

7. Differential expression of collagen, MMP, TIMP and fibrogenic-cytokine genes in the granulomatous colon of Schistosoma mansoni-infected mice.
Match Strength: 2.790
Schistosomiasis mansoni is a major helminthic disease of the tropics characterised by chronic hepatic and intestinal granulomatous inflammation and fibrosis. The fibrotic response is regulated by the amount of collagen deposited in the tissues and the degradation of that collagen by matrix metalloproteinases (MMP). In the murine model of the disease, although hepatic granuloma formation and the ensuing fibrosis have been thoroughly examined, there is a dearth of information on the intestinal fibrotic process. The expression of fibrosis-related genes in the colons of chronically infected mice ... Read More »

8. Comparing outcomes of enucleation and evisceration.
Match Strength: 2.755
PURPOSE: To compare clinical outcomes of enucleation and evisceration by functional and aesthetic measures. DESIGN: Retrospective, nonrandomized, comparative analysis. PARTICIPANTS: Eighty-four patients who underwent enucleation or evisceration. METHODS: The medical records of the participants were retrospectively reviewed. Clinical photographs were graded by blinded observers for qualitative measures. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Postoperative eyelid and motility measurements, as well as subjective grades of various aesthetic and functional outcomes. RESULTS: There is no statistically significant ...

9. Pediatric granulomatous arthritis: an international registry.
Match Strength: 2.526
OBJECTIVE: Blau syndrome and its sporadic counterpart, early-onset sarcoidosis, share an identical phenotype featuring the classic triad of arthritis, dermatitis, and uveitis and are associated with mutations of CARD15 in 50-90% of cases. We chose the term "pediatric granulomatous arthritis" to refer to both. An international registry was established in the spring of 2005 to define the phenotype spectrum and establish the mutation frequency and variants. METHODS: Histologically confirmed granuloma and arthritis were required for inclusion. Probands and relatives were genotyped for CARD15. ... Read More »
