Cercosaura argulus (Peters, 1863) is widely spread throughout much of the Brazilian Amazon and its neighboring countries. This paper presents the first record of this species in the state of Maranhão, extending its known geographical distribution by 320 kilometers south from Apeú in Pará, and the first record for the northeast region of Brazil. © 2013 Check List and Authors.

Introduction: This study aimed to estimate the prevalence of the most frequent oral and systemic manifestations in human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1)-positive patients. Methods: The study was conducted on 300 HIV-1 patients attending the Reference Unit Specialized in Special Infectious Parasitic Diseases in Belém, Pará, Brazil. Results: The most prevalent oral conditions were caries (32.6%), candidiasis (32%), and periodontal disease (17%). Among the systemic manifestations, hepatitis (29.2%), gastritis (16%), arterial hypertension (14.7%), and tuberculosis (12%) were the most commonly observed. Conclusions: We here reported on the most prevalent oral and systemic conditions in HIV-1-positive patients. The healthcare professional’s knowledge of the various manifestations among these patients is fundamental to ensure prompt and accurate diagnosis and treatment, and for improving the quality of life of these patients. © 2015, Sociedade Brasileira de Medicina Tropical.

Phytochemical studies of the bark and leaves of Croton palanostigma Klotzsch (Euphorbiaceae) led to the isolation of a new clerodane diterpene, 8-epicordatin (2), in addition to 12-oxohardwickiic acid methyl ester (3), aparisthman, cordatin (1), ent-trachyloban-18-oic acid, ent-13-epimanoyl oxide, ent-3-oxo-13-epimanoyl oxide, ent-3β-hydroxy-13-epimanoyl oxide, sitosterol, stigmasterol, stigmastan-3-one, 6β-hydroxystigmast-4-en-3-one, 6β-hydroxystigmasta-4,22-dien-3-one, stigmast-4-en-3-one, stigmasta-4,22-dien-3-one, 3-O-acetylaleuritolic acid, 11α-hydroxyurs-12- en-3-one, α-amyrenone, 24-methylenecycloartenone and lupenone. These compounds were isolated using typical phytochemical procedures and the structures were deduced from spectroscopic studies, including 2D NMR experiments. In addition, the crystalline structure of 8-epicordatin (2) was determined by X-ray diffraction. NMR theoretical calculations at the B3PW91/DGDZVP level were used to confirm the assignment of the chemical shifts of the H-7α and H-7β hydrogens of 8-epicordatin. © 2010 Sociedade Brasileira de Química.

The authors report on a case of a young woman who had previously undergone a right nephrectomy due to renal angiomyolipomas, currently presenting voluminous angiomyolipomas of the remaining kidney. The patient’s urologist referred her for endovascular treatment. Superselective arterial embolization of one tumor (located at the inferior renal pole), was conducted successfully. Several attempts at selective catheterization were made to embolize the second angiomyolipoma (located at the superior lobe), without jeopardizing a significant amount of the surrounding renal parenchyma, but this ultimately proved not to be feasible. The procedure and recovery were uneventful. The patient was discharged on the first postoperative day and has been followed for 9 months with no complications. The authors provide a brief review of the indications, technical aspects and complications of endovascular treatment of renal angiomyolipomas and also discuss the advantages of the endovascular approach over surgical resection for this kind of tumor. © 2016, Sociedade Brasileira de Angiologia e Cirurgia Vascular.

A 24-year-old male patient, who underwent kidney transplant six years ago due to Lupus nephritis, for the last two years presented asymptomatic erythematous scaly plaques on the abdomen and areas exposed to light. Post-transplantation immunosuppressive medications included prednisone, mycophenolate sodium and sirolimus. The histopathologic features were typical for epidermodysplasia verruciformis. Epidermodysplasia verruciformis is a rare autosomal recessive genodermatosis with increased susceptibility to specific strains of cutaneous human papilloma virus. The term "acquired epidermodysplasia verruciformis" was recently introduced to the literature and describes epidermodysplasia verruciformis occurring in patients with impaired cell-mediated immunity. We report an additional case associated to immunosuppression after kidney transplantation. © 2013 by Anais Brasileiros de Dermatologia.
