Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumours (MPNSTs), also called neurofibrosarcomas or malignant schwannomas, represents 10% of all soft tissue sarcomas. The tumour is usually found in the lower extremities, and only 10 to 20% of all lesions occur in head and neck region, thus making it a rare entity. Neurofibroma is one of the common nerve sheath tumours occurring in the soft tissues, and generally appears in neurofibromatosis 1 or Von Recklinghausen's disease. Individuals with a family history of neurofibromatosis 1 are reported to have an increased risk of developing MPNSTs in their lifetime. However, this association is not seen in MPNSTs of the cranial nerves. In this study, the authors reviewed the current literature on MPNSTs of the trigeminal nerve to analyse the presentations, treatment options, and outcomes for patients with this disease, as well as the report of a case involving the 3 branches of the trigeminal nerve. © 2014 SECOM.

This is the report of a case of a patient who presented her first psychotic episode at the age of 48 years old with a predominance of delusional symptoms but with a torpid and severe family and social dysfunction meriting psychiatric hospitalization for 83 days because of her difficult treatment and a considerable multiple pharmacological schemes that interfere on the diagnosis and prognosis; the importance of the approach and the differential diagnosis that has to be taken into account to the variety of psychotic symptoms that are part of the diagnosis of schizophrenia, but they certainly are not pathognomonic of it.

The objetive of the present was to show an incidental Fitz-Hugh-Curtis Syndrome (FHCS) at chronic phase. The patient was a woman that belong to an steril treatmen program. The Fitz-Hugh-Curtis Syndrome was show by laparoscopyc images correlated to pelvic immflamation disease that associated to Mycoplasma hominis. Source

Objective. To evaluate the stability of vision after treatment of strabismic amblyopia. Method. The result of the treatment followed in an historic cohort of patients with strabismic amblyopia is analyzed. Results. Seven of the patients had congenital esotropia: an seven had partially accommodative esotropia the other to had a variable non accommodative esotropia related to psychomotor retardation. The amblyopia therapy included: direct occlusion, atropine, and optical penalization. The pre treatment vision was 20/120 and the post treatment vision 20/50. After the 10 years of treatment nine preserved the vision obtained by the treatment and the other two patients lost 4 lines and 7 lines respectively. The mean age at the final treatment was 11.8 years. Conclusions. This paper show the stability at long term of vision after amblyopia treatment of children. Source

Background: A T helper cell (TH) 17-biased response has been observed in patients with allergic asthma, particularly in those with neutrophil accumulation in the lung. Therefore, we sought to test the hypothesis that neutrophils might be an important source of interleukin (IL)-17 in allergic asthma.Methods: Whole peripheral blood cells from non-asthmatic control subjects (n = 17) and patients with mild asthma (n = 7), moderate but persistent asthma (n = 4), or acute asthma (n = 6) were analyzed for IL-17A expression in CD177+ neutrophils. IL-17A expression was also analyzed in CD3+CD4+ and CD3+CD8+ lymphocyte populations. Asthmatic patients were classified as allergic to fungi, indoor allergens, or other allergens (e.g., pollen) based on a positive intradermal allergy test reaction.Results: The percentage of CD177+ neutrophils in whole blood of asthmatic patients was higher than in healthy controls and highest in the moderate asthma group. Furthermore, the percentage of CD177+IL-17+ neutrophils was elevated in patients with mild asthma, whereas the CD4+ IL-17+ lymphocyte population was higher in asthmatic patients and highest in those with moderate but persistent asthma. We also found that the four patients that were allergic to fungi had the highest percentage of CD177+IL17+ neutrophils and CD8+IL17+ lymphocytes.Conclusion: IL17+CD177+ Neutrophils increase in allergic asthma patients especially when allergic to fungi. This cell population, through release of IL-17, might be contributing during the initial phase asthmatic disease and/or during disease progression but its role has not yet been established. © 2013 Ramirez-Velazquez et al.; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.
