We report a child with an ulcerated pseudotumoral lesion in the left eyelid accompanied by bilateral neck adenopathies due to a primary herpes virus infection. Differential diagnosis with neoplasms and a proper therapy of the infection resulted in a complete cure of the lesion.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is increasingly linked to coronary heart disease risk. Aim of this study was to test the hypothesis whether this association is due to penile atherosclerosis. We evaluated the prevalence and severity of penile atherosclerosis in relation to coronary and peripheral atherosclerosis. Between January and June 2010, a consecutive series of 31 men underwent an autopsy at the Department of Pathology at the Medical University Vienna. Atherosclerosis at the following localizations were histologically classified: right coronary artery, left coronary artery, left circumflex artery, internal iliac artery, dorsal penile artery and deep penile artery (bilateral). Coronary and peripheral atherosclerosis was present in 87.1 and 77.4% of cases. Atherosclerosis of penile arteries was detectable in only 4 men (12.9%). The only factor linked to penile atherosclerosis was diabetes (P0.03). All other parameters as assessed according to medical history, general finding from autopsy or histological results regarding arterial lesions in general were not correlated to penile arterial lesions. In contrast to the high prevalence of atherosclerosis in general, penile arterial lesions are rarely present. © 2012 Macmillan Publishers Limited All rights reserved.

Prostate Cancer and Prostatic Diseases | Year: 2011
The objective of this study was to test a novel technique of processing a prostate biopsy (PB) specimen by marking its peripheral end (PE) as a predictive tool for locally advanced prostate cancer (PC) or margin-positive resection (R1) after radical prostatectomy (RP). Prospective evaluation of a consecutive cohort of men who underwent PB and subsequent RP was carried out. Transrectal ultrasound-guided 10-20 core PB was performed according to a standardized protocol. Each biopsy core was inked at the PE and classified as PE positive or negative. The study cohort comprised 100 men with a mean age of 62.3 years (41-75 years). Overall, PE-positive cores were found in 71 men, postoperative tumour (pT)3/pT4 stages were diagnosed in 33 men and R1 status in 45 men after RP. In univariate analysis, the presence of at least one PE-positive core was correlated to an increased risk for pT3/pT4 stage (relative risk (RR): 3.15; 95% confidence interval (95% CI): 1.1-9.9; P=0.03) and R1 status (RR: 2.9; 95% CI: 1.1-7.5; P=0.03). In multivariate analysis including Gleason score, total number of positive cores, PE positivity and PSA, PE positivity was correlated to pT3/pT4 stage (P=0.04). In conclusion, PC at the PE of a PB specimen predicts non-organ-confined tumour stage in subsequent prostatectomy. This simple, new technique may contribute to increasing the accuracy of risk stratification for curative treatment of PC.© 2011 Macmillan Publishers Limited All rights reserved.
