Tauopathies are sporadic or familial neurodegenerative diseases characterized by the accumulation of phosphorylated tau in neurons and glial cells and include encephalitis related to measles virus such as subacute sclerosing panencephalitis. We describe a 45-year-old woman, with a history of lymphoma treated with immunosuppressant therapy who underwent an open biopsy of the right frontal cortex for a suspect of encephalitis, and died 4 days later. The neuropathological assessment on the bioptic sample revealed edema, severe gliosis and microglial activation, with lymphomonocytic perivascular cuffing and neurons containing both nuclear and cytoplasmic eosinofilic inclusions that ultrastructurally appeared as tubular and curvilinear non-membrane-bound 12-18 nm structures, leading to the diagnosis of measles inclusion-bodies encephalitis...

A 22-year-old male with recurrent periods of coughing and nasal discharge was unable to work and cooperate. A bronchoscopy revealed high amounts of leucocytes and no eosinofils, acute inflammation and > 105/ml Streptococcus pneumoniae susceptible to penicillin. The symptoms relapsed after penicillin and at the age of 24 the patient was CT-scanned which revealed bilateral sinusitis, mastoiditis and bronchiectasis. Treatment with azithromycin and a weight loss programme (from 156 kg) improved the health of the patient, who was an orangutan...

BACKGROUND: The establishment of Extracorporeal Circulation (EC) significantly contributed to improvement of cardiac surgery, but this is accompanied by harmful side-effects. The most important of them is systemic inflammatory response syndrome. Many efforts have been undertaken to minimize this problem but unfortunately without satisfied solution to date. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Lornoxicam is a non steroid anti-inflammatory drug which temporally inhibits the cycloxygenase...

OBJECTIVES: Hibernomas are rare benign tumours originating from the brown adipose tissue. They occur generally in adults with a peak incidence in the third decade and with a slightly predominance in women. They are benign tumor that does not recur with complete excision. CT and RM images should not be misdiagnosed with atypical lipomas or well-differentiated liposarcoma. We report a case of incidental renal hibernoma discovered in a 51 years old women during open surgery for kidney pielic stone...

PURPOSE: The study shows the antihistaminic and anti-inflammatory efficient treatment with olopatadina 0.1%. METHOD: The study group consisting of 30 patients evaluated in the ophthalmological ambulatory between the period of april-august 2007 were diagnosed with acute seasonal allergic conjunctivites. Ig E and seric eosinofiles were quantified for all patients and the severity of conjunctivitis was evaluated by summing up the scores of the cardinal signs of allergic conjunctivitis: itching, conjunctival hyperemia and tearing...

Eosinophilic cystitis (EC) is a rare form of bladder inflammation characterized by massive eosinophilic infiltration of the bladder wall. The most frequent signs and symptoms are pollakiuria, urgency, macroscopic haematuria and hypogastric pain: the involvement of the ureters may cause hydronephrosis and renal failure. Eosinophilia and eosinophiluria are present in 35% and in 50% of the cases respectively. EC may evolve towards sclerosis up to the anatomoclinical picture of small retracted bladder, which requires to be differentiated from tubercular cystitis, interstitial cystitis and cancer...

A 12 year old male immigrant from Somalia was admitted to hospital after several years of haematuria and dysuria. Microscopic examination of the urine revealed eggs of the Schistosoma haematobium. Urine culture was negative. Cystoscopy showed a characteristic bilharzial tubercle, and numerous sandy patches were also seen. Mucosal biopsy showed schistosoma eggs, some with calcification. There was squamous cell metaplasia and infiltration of plasma cells and eosinofilic granulocytes. The patient was treated with praziquantel 600 mg x 4 for two days...
