Angiomatosis: A condition with multiple tumor-like lesions caused either by congenital or developmental malformations of BLOOD VESSELS, or reactive vascular proliferations, such as in bacillary angiomatosis. Angiomatosis is considered non-neoplastic.Angiomatosis, Bacillary: A reactive vascular proliferation that is characterized by the multiple tumor-like lesions in skin, bone, brain, and other organs. Bacillary angiomatosis is caused by infection with gram-negative Bartonella bacilli (such as BARTONELLA HENSELAE), and is often seen in AIDS patients and other IMMUNOCOMPROMISED HOSTS.Bartonella quintana: A species of gram-negative bacteria in which man is the primary host and the human body louse, Pediculus humanus, the principal vector. It is the etiological agent of TRENCH FEVER.Bartonella henselae: A species of gram-negative bacteria that is the etiologic agent of bacillary angiomatosis (ANGIOMATOSIS, BACILLARY). This organism can also be a cause of CAT-SCRATCH DISEASE in immunocompetent patients.Rickettsiaceae: A family of small, gram-negative organisms, often parasitic in humans and other animals, causing diseases that may be transmitted by invertebrate vectors.Osteolysis, Essential: Syndromes of bone destruction where the cause is not obvious such as neoplasia, infection, or trauma. The destruction follows various patterns: massive (Gorham disease), multicentric (HAJDU-CHENEY SYNDROME), or carpal/tarsal.Trench Fever: An intermittent fever characterized by intervals of chills, fever, and splenomegaly each of which may last as long as 40 hours. It is caused by BARTONELLA QUINTANA and transmitted by the human louse.Cat-Scratch Disease: A self-limiting bacterial infection of the regional lymph nodes caused by AFIPIA felis, a gram-negative bacterium recently identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and by BARTONELLA HENSELAE. It usually arises one or more weeks following a feline scratch, with raised inflammatory nodules at the site of the scratch being the primary symptom.Peliosis Hepatis: A vascular disease of the LIVER characterized by the occurrence of multiple blood-filled CYSTS or cavities. The cysts are lined with ENDOTHELIAL CELLS; the cavities lined with hepatic parenchymal cells (HEPATOCYTES). Peliosis hepatis has been associated with use of anabolic steroids (ANABOLIC AGENTS) and certain drugs.Rickettsiaceae Infections: Infections with bacteria of the family RICKETTSIACEAE.Bartonella Infections: Infections by the genus BARTONELLA. Bartonella bacilliformis can cause acute febrile anemia, designated Oroya fever, and a benign skin eruption, called verruga peruana. BARTONELLA QUINTANA causes TRENCH FEVER, while BARTONELLA HENSELAE is the etiologic agent of bacillary angiomatosis (ANGIOMATOSIS, BACILLARY) and is also one of the causes of CAT-SCRATCH DISEASE in immunocompetent patients.Bartonella: A genus of gram-negative bacteria characteristically appearing in chains of several segmenting organisms. It occurs in man and arthropod vectors and is found only in the Andes region of South America. This genus is the etiologic agent of human bartonellosis. The genus Rochalimaea, once considered a separate genus, has recently been combined with the genus Bartonella as a result of high levels of relatedness in 16S rRNA sequence data and DNA hybridization data.Sturge-Weber Syndrome: A non-inherited congenital condition with vascular and neurological abnormalities. It is characterized by facial vascular nevi (PORT-WINE STAIN), and capillary angiomatosis of intracranial membranes (MENINGES; CHOROID). Neurological features include EPILEPSY; cognitive deficits; GLAUCOMA; and visual defects.Bone Cysts: Benign unilocular lytic areas in the proximal end of a long bone with well defined and narrow endosteal margins. The cysts contain fluid and the cyst walls may contain some giant cells. Bone cysts usually occur in males between the ages 3-15 years.Bone Diseases: Diseases of BONES.AIDS-Related Opportunistic Infections: Opportunistic infections found in patients who test positive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The most common include PNEUMOCYSTIS PNEUMONIA, Kaposi's sarcoma, cryptosporidiosis, herpes simplex, toxoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and infections with Mycobacterium avium complex, Microsporidium, and Cytomegalovirus.Humerus: Bone in humans and primates extending from the SHOULDER JOINT to the ELBOW JOINT.

Von Hippel's disease in association with von Recklinghausen's neurofibromatosis. (1/85)

Ten members of a large family who showed manifestations of either von Hippel-Lindau disease or von Recklinghausen's neurofibromatosis were examined. Three of 10 members were found to have retinal angiomas which had not been present on fundus examination 3 years previously. These angiomas were associated with ocular and systemic signs of neurofibromatosis. These cases show overlapping manifestations of different phakomatoses and provide support for the concept of a common aetiology for these diseases.  (+info)

Meningioangiomatosis. A comprehensive analysis of clinical and laboratory features. (2/85)

Meningioangiomatosis (MA) is a rare, benign, focal lesion of the leptomeninges and underlying cerebral cortex characterized by leptomeningeal and meningovascular proliferation. It may occur sporadically or in association with neurofibromatosis type 2. Previous reports have emphasized histological and imaging features. Data on the management of these patients are sparse, and electrophysiological features of MA lesions have not been published. We assessed the clinical, electrophysiological, histopathological and imaging features as well as the surgical outcome in MA, and compared MA with and without neurofibromatosis. Seven patients with MA at our centre were investigated and their outcome was assessed. A review of the literature is included. MA exhibits a wide range of clinical, imaging, histopathological and electrophysiological features, making the diagnosis difficult. Sporadic MA cases are not associated with neurofibromatosis and the two disorders are genetically distinct. Medically refractory, localization-related epilepsy is the commonest presentation in sporadic cases, but atypical presentations also occur. Unlike sporadic cases, MA with neurofibromatosis is often found incidentally, does not produce seizures, occurs less frequently (ratio of 1:4), and is multifocal. MRI findings in MA correspond to the histological picture. However, the appearance on imaging is non-specific and may suggest cystic atrophy, angioma and tumours. Several abnormalities have been found in close proximity to MA lesions, i.e. meningioma, oligodendroglioma, arteriovenous malformation, encephalocoel and orbital erosion. In spite of histopathological diversity, MA lesions are either predominantly cellular or vascular. Immunohistochemical results are inconsistent among cases, add little to the diagnosis, and do not support a meningeal origin. Electrocorticographic recordings from the surface and within MA lesions revealed a spectrum of electrophysiological expressions. Intrinsic epileptogenicity of MA lesions was documented in some cases. Epileptogenicity was confined to the perilesional cortex in some patients and it was complex (extralesional, multifocal, generalized) in others. Only 43% of our patients became seizure-free postoperatively compared with 68% previously reported, and >70% of our patients and those in the literature continued to require antiepileptic drugs. This is in keeping with the diverse electrophysiology of MA and suggests a less optimistic postoperative outcome than previously recognized.  (+info)

Multifocal meningioangiomatosis: a report of two cases. (3/85)

We report the CT and MR findings in two patients with multifocal meningioangiomatosis, neither of whom had a family history or stigmata of neurofibromatosis. All lesions were located in the cortical and subcortical areas and had round dense calcifications with eccentric cysts. The masses were associated with surrounding edema and gliosis.  (+info)

Jejunal angiomatoses causing small bowel obstruction in a patient with Down syndrome: a case report. (4/85)

Gastrointestinal vascular anomalies are extremely uncommon. We describe a patient with Down syndrome who presented with acute abdominal pain due to a mixed capillary and venous vascular malformation involving the proximal jejunum.  (+info)

Bilateral focal cerebral angiomatosis associated with nervous signs in a cat. (5/85)

A case of cerebral angiomatosis in a cat was associated with neurologic signs characterized by clusters of severe generalized seizures. Bilaterally in the gray matter, most prominent in the cingulate gyrus, there was focal accumulation of garlandlike arrangements of blood vessels. Vessels exhibited activated, hypertrophic endothelial cells and thickening and progressive dystrophic mineralization of the basement membrane, with complete luminal obstruction of some affected vessels. Thickening of the basement membrane was due to accumulation of endothelium-derived proteins such as laminin and von Willebrand factor. Furthermore, moderate diffuse astrogliosis was observed. Findings indicate an idiopathic angiomatosis, with clinical signs possibly due to ischemia resulting from narrowing or complete obliteration of vessel lumina. Changes represent a unique endothelial cell-derived lesion within the brain not previously described in humans or domestic animals.  (+info)

VHL c.505 T>C mutation confers a high age related penetrance but no increased overall mortality. (6/85)

BACKGROUND: Germline mutations of the VHL gene cause von Hippel-Lindau syndrome (VHL). In southern Germany, a specific mutation in this gene, c.505 T>C, is one of the most frequent alterations owing to a founder effect. METHODS: This study was conducted to evaluate morbidity, specific clinical risk profile, and mortality among a series of VHL c.505 T/C mutation carriers. A total of 125 eligible subjects carrying VHL c.505 T/C underwent ophthalmoscopy and gadolinium enhanced magnetic resonance imaging of the brain, the spinal cord, and the abdomen. Age related penetrance, morbidity, and mortality were assessed. RESULTS: Frequently observed lesions were phaeochromocytoma (47%), retinal angiomas (36%), haemangioblastoma of the spine (36%), and haemangioblastoma of the brain (16%). Four patients developed renal cell carcinoma. VHL was symptomatic in 47% of subjects; 30% were asymptomatic despite the presence of at least one VHL related tumour and 23% of the carriers had no detectable VHL lesion. Of the 19 patients who had died (15%), 10 died of symptomatic VHL lesions. Overall penetrance by cumulative incidence functions is estimated at 48% by 35 years and 88% by 70 years. In contrast to the only existing published report based on patients with presumably unselected VHL germline mutations, the mortality rate for c.505 T/C mutation carriers is comparable to that of the general population of Germany. CONCLUSIONS: Our results are an important example that a specific genotype, at least in the case of VHL c.505 T/C, can favourably impact on mortality despite a high age related penetrance. Our study also indirectly provides objective data which might be useful to the life and health insurance industry; it would appear that c.505 T>C mutation positive subjects have similar disease specific mortality to that of the general population owing to a combination of phenotype and timely detection of mutation carrier status followed by aggressive clinical screening and, if necessary, treatment.  (+info)

Posterior fossa scintiangiography: documentation of genetic penetrance of von Hippel-Lindau syndrome in a clinically unaffected girl and her father. (7/85)

The 16-year-old clinically normal daughter of a patient with the von Hippel-Lindau syndrome demonstrated a vascular posterior fossa lesion on scintiangiography that failed detection in delayed images. Contrast arteriography corroborated the presence of a hemangioblastoma. Noninvasive demonstration of the genetic penetrance of this disorder offers its victims an opportunity for low morbidity early surgical cure of the associated brain lesions.  (+info)

Skeletal angiomatosis in association with gastro-intestinal angiodysplasia and paraproteinemia: a case report. (8/85)

Skeletal-extraskeletal angiomatosis is defined as a benign vascular proliferation involving the medullary cavity of bone and at least one other type of tissue. It has also been known as cystic angiomatosis in which multiple cystic lesions are scattered diffusely throughout the skeleton often with similar angiomatous changes in other tissues, usually the spleen. A case of skeletal angiomatosis in association with gastro-intestinal angiodysplasia and paraproteinemia is reported.  (+info)

AIMS: To evaluate the prevalence of pseudoangiomatous hyperplasia of mammary stroma in gynaecomastia and its immunohistochemical profile in this setting. METHODS: Eighty eight cases of gynaecomastia recovered from the files of the department of pathology, Botucatu School of Medicine from 1976 to 1996 were studied. In the cases associated with pseudoangiomatous hyperplasia of mammary stroma, immunoreactivity for cytokeratins (CAM 5.2), vimentin, CD34, factor VIII related antigen, and the oestrogen and progesterone receptors were studied. RESULTS: Pseudoangiomatous hyperplasia of mammary stroma was found in 21 of 88 cases of gynaecomastia (23.8%). In all cases, the cells lining the spaces were positive for vimentin, whereas CAM 5.2 and factor VIII related antigen were consistently negative. Nineteen of the 21 cases showed immunoreactivity for CD34. Ductal epithelial cells were positive for both the oestrogen receptor and the progesterone receptor, whereas stromal cells were negative. CONCLUSIONS: ...
Cystic angiomatosis is a rare, benign, multifocal disorder of bone and viscera, in which angiomatous deposits of both vascular and lymphatic elements result in bone lysis and organ dysfunction. We report on a case of late-onset cystic angiomatosis in a Caucasian woman who first presented at age 35 years with a lytic expansile lesion of the proximal humerus, initially diagnosed as low-grade hemangio-endothelioma. This was treated with injection of cement and prophylactic pinning. However, the lesion continued to grow, and, 5 years later, she was discovered to have disseminated bony involvement, initially thought to represent metastatic disease. However, further investigation revealed a diagnosis of cystic angiomatosis, and the patient was treated with bisphosphonates. Follow-up over a 15-year period since her initial presentation at age 35 years has shown osteosclerotic conversion of many of the lesions, with development of numerous pathologic stress fractures that have failed to heal, despite operative

Meningioangiomatosis is a rare benign disorder characterized by the hallmarks of meningioma and angioma (4). It is a very slow-growing tumor (5) whose features have previously been reported (1-25). Meningioangiomatosis was first described by Bassoe and Nuzum in 1915 (6) as an incidental autopsy finding in a 15-year old boy; it was named by Worster-Drought et al in 1937 (1). Meningioangiomatosis primarily affects children and young adults, and seizures and/or headaches are the most common symptoms (2). It is associated with NF in nearly 50% of reported cases (3). A review of the literature suggests that meningioangiomatosis is strongly associated with NF2 rather than NF1 (7, 8).. Though its pathogenesis is unknown, three possible theories have been suggested (9): first, these lesions could represent a hamartoma; second, they could result from direct invasion of the brain tissue by a leptomeningeal meningioma; and third, they could represent a vascular malformation. Characteristics of ...

Angiomatosis is a non-neoplastic condition[1] presenting with little knots of capillaries in various organs. It consists of many angiomas.[2] It is associated with Von Hippel-Lindau Disease and is a rare genetic multi system disorder characterized by the abnormal growth of tumours in the body. Symptoms may include headaches, problems with balance and walking, dizziness, weakness of the limbs, vision problems and high blood pressure. Prognosis depends on the size and location of the tumour, untreated angiomatosis may lead to blindness and/ or permanent brain damage. Death may occur, with complications in the kidney or brain.[3]. These tend to be cavernous hemangiomas, which are sharply defined, sponge-like tumors composed of large, dilated, cavernous vascular spaces.. They often appear in:. ...
DIAGNOSIS: Meningioangiomatosis. DISCUSSION:. Meningioangiomatosis (MA) is a rare hamartomatous lesion of the cerebral cortex and sometimes the overlying leptomeninges that was first described by Bassoe and Nusum in 1915 in association with neurofibromatosis (NF) (2), and the name MA was coined by Worster-Drought et. al., in 1937 (21). In 1986, Halper et. al. reported 6 cases of MA and elegantly reviewed 17 other cases from the literature (8). Five of their cases were not associated with NF. Harada et. al., reviewed 13 similar cases (9). Approximately 50 cases are now described in the English language literature. Cases associated with NF comprise less than one-third of the reported cases (where commented upon) and all were discovered at autopsy (8, 18). These patients have a mean age of 32 years (range: 15-70), and male: female of 2: 1. About one-third of these cases had multiple lesions (8, 18). The exact incidence of MA in NF is unknown; it was seen in 4 of 11 patients with central NF at ...
HISTORY. A 8-months-old, male, Bernese mountain dog was referred due to previous seizures at six months of age. Clinical signs, results of ancillary tests, and pathological findings are described. The owner reported pain manifestation on head movements. Previously, at four and five months of age, unilateral epistaxis episodes were presented. The dog suffered two generalized seizures (tonic-clonic convulsions with autonomic disturbances) at six months of age. Physical examination was normal. At neurological examination low proprioceptive deficit on right hindlimb and mild cervical pain were detected. Differential diagnostic included inflammatory-infectious disease, congenital abnormality, degenerative disorder and neoplasia. Complete blood count, biochemistry profile, serum bile acids, ammonia levels, TT4/TSH levels, urinalysis, and coagulation profile were normal. Brain magnetic resonance imaging was performed. On T1-weighted images, there was a 5 cm heterogeneous hyperintensity mass, and ...
Abstract PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of photodynamic therapy (PDT), using verteporfin, for subfoveal neovascular age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) with retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) with pigment epithelial detachment (PED) and/or choroidal neovascularization (CNV). METHODS: In this non-comparative, consecutive, interventional, case series, the data on 21 eyes (19 with stage 2 and two with stage 3 RAP) of 20 patients were reviewed. Serous PED occupied more than 50% of the lesion in 19 eyes. PDT was performed as per TAP protocol. Biomicroscopy and fluorescein and indocyanine-green angiography were performed to evaluate anatomical results and need for retreatment. Changes from baseline in best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), and complications, were assessed. RESULTS: A mean of 3.5+/-0.9 treatments was performed. After 13.7+/-2.2 months, mean BCVA decreased from 20/80 to 20/174 (P=0.0063). In six eyes (28.6%) BCVA remained stable, whereas in 15 eyes ...

NINDS : 51 Von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL) is a rare, genetic multi-system disorder in which non-cancerous tumors grow in certain parts of the body. Slow-growing hemgioblastomas -- benign tumors with many blood vessels -- may develop in the brain, spinal cord, the retinas of the eyes, and near the inner ear. Cysts (fluid-filled sacs) may develop around the hemangioblastomas. Other types of tumors develop in the adrenal glands, the kidneys, or the pancreas. Symptoms of VHL vary among individuals and depend on the size and location of the tumors. Symptoms may include headaches, problems with balance and walking, dizziness, weakness of the limbs, vision problems, deafness in one ear, and high blood pressure. Individuals with VHL are also at a higher risk than normal for certain types of cancer, especially kidney cancer ...

To verify the assignment of performance of a distinct viral gene, it is actually probably needed to restore the mutation back to the wild form sequence and deter mine irrespective of whether the phenotype in the rescuant viruses is similar to that of the parental virus. Having said that, the rescue procedures could potentially introduce adventitious muta tions that arise elsewhere in the genome. Meanwhile, it truly is doable the deletion of the target ORF could possibly impact the expression of other viral genes, like individuals in close by regions, since the deleted area may well func tion as a regulatory component vital for that expression of those genes, additionally to encoding the target ORF. Substantial research are necessary to demonstrate that the dele tion does not affect every other gene expression in the viral genome.. Alternatively, a viral mutant that contains a sub tle mutation, such as stage mutations, to inactivate the ORF could be info generated. Examination with the phenotype ...

The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) confirmed the presence of Bartonella spp. on both biopsy specimens. The skin lesions had almost completely disappeared after 1 month on erythromycin 500 mg 4 times a day, but the patient was subsequently lost to follow-up. Discussion Bacillary angiomatosis (BA) is caused by the Gram-negative bacteria B. henselae and B. quintana. Cutaneous BA was first described in 1983, and the first case in South Africa (where disease prevalence in the host, the domestic cat, is 24%1) was reported in 1993.2 BA is difficult to diagnose, requiring culture for at least 21 days; serological studies are often unreliable, and special staining with the Warthin-Starry stain is used to confirm the tissue diagnosis. The prevalence of Bartonella bacteraemia (nested PCR) was 10% at the Johannesburg HIV outpatient clinics.3 The treatment of choice is erythromycin 500 mg 4 times a day for 3 months; also useful are doxycycline, ceftriaxone and the fluoroquinolones. Examination of the skin ...
The symptoms of bacillary angiomatosis are difficult to miss. The disease causes lesions or growths, varying in size that can occur all over the skin. These can be small other very large, occasionally up to about 4 inches (10.16 cm) in diameter. Its quite possible to have well over 50 developments at a time, and they can look bright red to almost black in color, easily breaking open and bleeding sometimes. These will continue to grow and may be accompanied by flu like symptoms such as fever, achiness, swelling of the glands, and stomach disturb. Internal symptoms of the disease may be slightest noted though they are most hazardous. As growths occur on the outside skin, they can also start to occur inside the body. This could affect vital organs and cause organ dysfunction.. ...
Alternative titles; symbols KTW SYNDROME KLIPPEL-TRENAUNAY SYNDROME; KTS ANGIOOSTEOHYPERTROPHY SYNDROMEGene map locus 5q13.3 TEXT A number sign (#) is used with this entry because at least some cases of Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome are caused by mutation in or gain-of-function translocation involving the VG5Q gene (608464). The features of Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome are large cutaneous hemangiomata with hypertrophy of the related bones and soft tissues. The disorder resembles, clinically and in its lack of definite genetic basis, Sturge-Weber syndrome (185300), and indeed the 2 have been associated in some cases (Harper, 1971). Suggestions of a genetic cause are meager (Waardenburg, 1963). See 116860. Lindenauer (1965) described brother and sister. He suggested that when arteriovenous fistula is also present, the disorder is distinct from the KTW syndrome and might be called Parkes Weber syndrome, since Weber (1907) described cases of this type as well as cases seemingly identical to those ...

PURPOSE To evaluate the effects of intravitreal bevacizumab and ranibizumab treatments in retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP). METHODS Fifty patients affected by RAP were randomly assigned either to intravitreal bevacizumab injection (IVBI) or intravitreal ranibizumab injection (IVRI). After a loading phase including three consecutive monthly injections, the retreatment was administered in cases of persistent RAP. The primary outcome measures were the mean changes in BCVA between the two treatment groups, and the proportion of eyes gaining 1 and 3 lines at the end of the follow-up. Secondary outcomes included central macular thickness (CMT) changes and progression to more advanced stages of RAP. RESULTS Fifty patients affected by stage 1 and 2 RAP were recruited. Twenty-six and 24 patients received IVBI and IVRI, respectively. At the baseline, mean best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) values were 0.59 ± 0.21 (LogMAR ± SD, approximately corresponding to 20/80 Snellen Equivalent-SE) in IVBI group
Purpose: : To determine the anatomical outcome with Spectral Domain Optical coherence tomography (OCT), and fonctionnal outcome, after injection of ranibizumab in eyes with retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP). Methods: : Retrospective case series. Thirteen eyes of 13 consecutive patients with visual loss due to RAP underwent 3 intravitreal injections of 0,5 mg (0.05 ml) ranibizumab (Lucentis, Novartis) at six weeks interval. Best corrected visual acuity testing, OCT imaging with the Spectralis HRA-OCT device (Heidelberg, Germany) were performed at baseline and at each follow-up visit, performed 4 weeks after each injection. Fluorescein and ICG-angiography were performed at baseline and at the end of the treatment. Tomographic components of RAP were: at the level of anastomosis, break of both RPE and outer plexiform layer between witch was present an hemorragic pigmented area as a water jet; around the anastomosis, inner nuclear layer oedema, serous retinal detachment and moderate and ...

Methods We retrospectively reviewed 17 treatment-naïve eyes in 14 patients (4 men, 10 women; age range 71-87 years; mean age 80 years) treated with IVR. All the patients received three consecutive monthly injections of 0.5 mg/0.05 mL of ranibizumab as an induction treatment. Retreatment was allowed if evidence of clinical deterioration was noted or if an SD-OCT examination performed at a 1-month follow-up showed intraretinal oedema, subretinal fluid, or recurrent pigment epithelial detachment. The primary outcome measures were best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and central foveal thickness (CFT) as evaluated using SD-OCT. Furthermore, we investigated the atrophic area at 36 months using advanced RPE analysis provided by SD-OCT and analysed the correlation with the BCVA.. ...
Glaucoma or high pressure around the eyes is one of the conditions that are apparent at birth time or show up later. The occurrence of the glaucoma in persons with the Encephalotrigeminal Angiomatosis is said to be about 40% and 70% in choroidal lesions. Glaucoma is normally limited to the eye covered by the stain. Also eye enlargement (buphthalmos) is also a common occurrence for the stain affected eye. Numerous other bodily organs are less affected by the condition.. Treatment. Treatment by way of laser is employed to get rid of and/or lighten the birthmarks for children as little as a month old. By use of anti-convulsants, seizures can easily be controlled. Also a brain surgery as well as VNS implants can be employed to assist in seizure management. Oral medications or eye drops can be used to help manage glaucoma. Should all the oral and topical administered medications fail to be effective, then the only other option would certainly be surgery.. ...

According to reviews about an English show about air in Australia on iTV called Brief Encounters, the 80s delivered a second sexual revolution for the Brits with the rise of the Ann Summers party plan business. So, its now the noughties, is Australia finally ready for the revolution?. One UK review quoted: "With an Ann Summers store on pretty much every British high-street, its strange to think back to a time when the stores sex toys and exotic lingerie were utterly taboo." I read this and it struck me - its 30 years on and really, it still is largely taboo in Australia!. PASH Australia was launched over 10 years ago now with a goal to help the women of Australia have access to information and sensuality products that would enhance relationships, encourage intimacy and build female sexual self-confidence. My goal was to remove the stigma and empower women. I wanted to create something that would appeal to all women - hence the absence of exotic lingerie and smutty toys!. I have to ...
Mitochondria from diverse organisms can handle transporting huge amounts of Ca2+ with a ruthenium-red-sensitive membrane-potential-dependent system called the uniporter1-4. potential remain intact fully. MCU provides two forecasted transmembrane helices that are separated by an extremely conserved linker facing the intermembrane space. Acidic residues within this linker are necessary for its complete activity. Nevertheless an S259A stage mutation retains function but confers level of resistance to Ru360 the strongest inhibitor from the uniporter. Our genomic physiological pharmacological and biochemical data LY341495 firmly establish MCU as an important element of the mitochondrial Ca2+ uniporter. To anticipate proteins that are functionally linked to MICU1 (ref. 5) and needed for mitochondrial calcium mineral (Ca2+) uptake we performed three organized computational analyses. First we positioned all ~20 0 mammalian genes based on the similarity of their phylogenetic profile to across 81 mouse ...

Neural tube defects are congenital development anomaly of the central nervous system and usually have relatively more predilection to affect at anterior and posterior neuropore embryological development sites, so usually one or two defects are commonly encountered. However, occurrence of simultaneous multiple neural tube defects is very rare, presence of constellation of five neural defects is extremely rare, and all defects add up together to produce gross neurological deficit. We present an interesting case of a 23-year-old male who presented with history of lower backache and noticed wasting and weakness of lower limbs associated with difficulty in walking for the last 2 years but had no associated sphincter disturbances ...

Read about Klippel-Trènaunay-Weber syndrome, a condition with an unknown cause that can sometimes be painful. Symptoms of Klippel-Trènaunay-Weber syndrome include port-wine stains in the skin, soft tissue and bony growths, and varicose veins. Some patients have too many or too few digits.
Overgrowth syndromes in children constitute a group of rare disorders that are typical of tissue hypertrophy. Individual overgrowth syndromes have been shown to overlap with regard to clinical and radiologic features. The details of the genetic bases of these syndromes are unfolding. Any of the three embryonic tissue layers may be involved.The syndromes may manifest in localized or generalized tissue overgrowth. Latitudinal and longitudinal growth may be affected. Nevertheless, the musculoskeletal features are central to the diagnosis of some syndromes such as Proteus syndrome. The time of presentation of children with overgrowth syndromes is an important contributor to the differential diagnosis. Children with some overgrowth syndromes such as Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome can be readily detectable at birth. In contrast other overgrowth syndromes such as Proteus syndrome usually present in the postnatal period characteristically between the 2nd and 3rd year of life. In general, children with ...
Acro-angiodermatitis is a benign vascular process which histologically closely resembles Kaposis Sarcoma and had thus been named pseudo-Kaposis sarcoma. Acro-angiodermatitis is often associated with different disorders like: chronic venous insufficiency, arterio-venous malformations, arterio-venous shunts, acquired arteriovenous fistula, paralysed limb, Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome. It has also been reported above knee amputation stump.. Site: Lower part of the legs and on the feet.. Clinical presentation: The lesion presents as circumscribed violaceous, brown or dusky macules, papules, plaques and nodules.. Microscopic features:. Proliferation of small dilated vessels in a thickened edematous papillary dermis and sometimes in the upper reticular dermis.. The vessels have a regular profile. Some lesions show nodular collection of blood vessels with perivascular inflammation.. The small vessels are thick walled and are lined by plump endothelial cells. There are no atypical ...
Context.-Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma (AFH) is a rare soft tissue neoplasm of intermediate biologic potential and uncertain differentiation, most often arising in the superficial extremities of children and young adults. While it has characteristic histologic features of nodular distributions of ovoid and spindle cells with blood-filled cystic cavities and a surrounding dense lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate, there is a significant morphologic spectrum, which coupled with its rarity and lack of specific immunoprofile can make diagnosis challenging. Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma is associated with 3 characteristic gene fusions, EWSR1-CREB1 and EWSR1-ATF1, which are also described in other neoplasms, and rarely FUS-ATF1. Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma is now recognized at an increasing number of sites and is known to display a variety of unusual histologic features. Objective.-To review the current status of AFH, discussing putative etiology, histopathology with variant morphology and ...
Antibiotic treatment of BA and BP has never been systematically studied, and there is currently no animal model. Based on our clinical experience treating more than 50 patients, reported cases, and, finally, in vivo antibiotic treatment of experimentally-infected cats, we recommend treatment with erythromycin or doxycycline first line (Table 1). If either antibiotic is not tolerated, tetracycline or clarithromycin or azithromycin is used. A recent antibiotic trial treating cats experimentally infected with B. henselae found a statistically significant decrease in levels of bacteremia after treatment with tetracycline and erythromycin but not enrofloxacin (a quinolone derivative) or amoxicillin.(91) The initial BA patient described by Stoler in 1983(4) was treated empirically with erythromycin and had complete resolution of lesions. Subsequently, erythromycin has been reported to successfully treat many patients with BA and BP.(2,9,18,19,21,24,26-29,31,33,41,42,52,55,58,67,92) Erythromycin is ...

Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is a neurological disorder marked by a distinctive port-wine stain on the forehead, scalp, or around the eye. This stain is a birthmark caused by an overabundance of capillaries near the surface of the skin. Blood vessels on the same side of the brain as the stain may also be affected. A large number of people with SWS experience seizures or convulsions. Other complications may include increased pressure in the eye, developmental delays, and weakness on one side of the body. The medical term for SWS is encephalotrigeminal angiomatosis. According to the National Organization for Rare Disorders, SWS occurs in one of every estimated 20,000 to 50,000 live births. Approximately one in 1,000 babies are born with a port-wine stain. However, only 6 percent of those babies have symptoms associated with SWS.. ...
This open-label study will pilot the use of systemic sunitinib malate, a dual inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and platelet derived growth factor (PDGF), in five participants with Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) to investigate its potential efficacy as a treatment for retinal angiomas. Participants will have visual dysfunction with either visual acuity loss or visual field loss from retinal angiomas secondary to genetically confirmed VHL. This open-label study will pilot the use of systemic sunitinib malate in five participants to investigate its potential efficacy as a treatment for retinal angiomas associated with VHL. Participants will receive nine months of sunitinib malate therapy (six cycles total - one cycle consists of 50 mg oral dose once daily for four weeks followed by a two week rest period). The primary outcome will be a change in the best-corrected visual acuity of more than or equal to 15 letters from baseline to the Week 36 visit. The secondary ocular outcomes will ...

We recently identified mutations in the GNAQ gene as the cause of Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS). We did this in collaboration with Dr. Anne Comi (Director, Hunter Nelson Sturge-Weber Center at Kennedy Krieger Institute) and Dr. Douglas Marchuk (Duke University).. To do this we sequenced the genomes of affected and unaffected parts of the body of three individuals, then confirmed the finding by sequencing 97 samples from 50 individuals. GNAQ is a gene that specifies a protein, Gαq, that regulates pathways inside cells controlling basic functions such as growth of cells and their ability to respond to signals. Gq responds to a chemical messenger (called GTP) by binding it, thus activating pathways inside cells, and then breaking it down.. In SWS Gαq is persistently activated to a small but significant extent. If Gαq is like a switch with "on" and "off" positions, in SWS the switch is locked into the partially "on" position.. We propose experiments to further understand the basic biology of SWS ...

UOC di Otorinolaringoiatria, Azienda Ospedaliera di Rilievo Nazionale e di Alta Specializzazione di Caserta. ABSTRACT. Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare congenital disorder characterized by capillary malformations (port-wine stains or flat haemangiomas), soft tissue and bone hypertrophy, large varicose veins. Intracranial vascular malformations are very rare. The Authors report a case of a 4 year old girl with KTS, suffering from anacusis in the left ear and severe sensorineural hearing loss in the right ear, who underwent cochlear implantation; in our case angiomatous formations were located inside the temporal bone, one of these adherent to the vertical portion of the facial nerve.. INTRODUCTION. In 1900 Maurice Klippel and Paul Trenaunay were the first to describe a rare angio-osteoipertrofica syndrome characterized by symptom triad: capillary malformations (port-wine stains or flat hemangiomas), soft tissue and bone hypertrophy, large varicose veins (1, 2). It typically affects one ...
1) Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma (AFH) is a rare soft tissue tumour, with a low-grade malignant potential and unknown histogenesis.. (2) This tumour predominantly occurs in the deep dermis and subcutis of the extremities of children and young adults. (3) According to the World Health Organization (WHO) Classification of Tumours of Soft Tissue and Bone, Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma (AFH) is described as an intermediate soft-tissue tumour that is often locally aggressive. (4) In 1979 Enzinger first described it as a distinct fibrohistiocytic tumour of children and young adults, simulating a vascular neoplasm according to 41 examples of an unusual fibrohistiocytic sarcoma. He called it angiomatoid malignant fibrous histiocytoma.. (5) The tumour was later formally renamed AFH because of its slow growth and rare metastasis according to WHO classification of soft-tissue tumors ( 2002 ).. (6) Although AFH is most commonly associated with the extremities, there have been a number of reported ...
Sturge-Weber syndrome has been found to result in hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction including central hypothyroidism. Because central hypothyroidism is more prevalent in Sturge-Weber syndrome than in the general population, we routinely evaluated thyroid function. Here we describe 5 children with Sturge-Weber syndrome on anticonvulsants and diagnosed with hypothyroidism based on thyroid function testing. All 5 patients were eventually tested utilizing the more accurate free thyroxine equilibrium dialysis assay. Results indicated that only 2 of the 5 patients, who exhibited the most severe symptoms, had true hypothyroidism. This case series demonstrates the benefits of using the free thyroxine by equilibrium dialysis when testing Sturge-Weber syndrome patients on antiepileptic medications. This testing algorithm is more cost-effective and also improves the quality of care by providing an accurate diagnosis more quickly. In addition, we propose consideration of this testing method in any patient ...

Cat scratch disease, a mild flu-like infection, with swollen lymph nodes (lymphadenitis) and mild fever of short duration, due to cat scratches, especially from kittens. There is usually a little bump (a papule) which may be pus-filled (a pustule) at the site of the scratch. The infection is self-limited and usually goes away by itself in a few weeks. It can also be treated with antibiotics, but it can cause a severe inflammation called bacillary angiomatosis in patients with weakened immune systems. A cat carrying the microbe does not show symptoms and it is not necessary to get rid of it. If someone in the household is at high risk, a test to detect the infection can be done and the cat can be treated. The disease is caused by a bacterium called Rochalimaea henselae, eventually reclassified as Bartonella henselae, named for Diane Hensel, a microbiologist. The disease has also been called regional lymphadenitis. ...

Sturge-Weber Syndrome is composed of three major symptoms. Excessive blood vessel growths (leptomeningeal angiomas) are accompanied by accumulations of calcium inside the brain, and seizures. Facial birth marks (nevus flammeus) appear usually on one side of the face. Angiomas similar to those found in the brain can develop inside the eye, often with secondary glaucoma.

Summary Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare disorder that is present at birth (congenital) and is characterized by a triad of cutaneous capillary malformation ("port-wine stain"), lymphatic anomalies, and abnormal veins in association with variable overgrowth of soft tissue and bone. KTS occurs most frequently in the lower limb and less commonly in the upper extremity and trunk.. Introduction The eponym KTS has generated controversy in the medical literature since the first report of the condition in the early 20th century. The French physicians, Klippel and Trenaunay, described patients with capillary stains (improperly called "hemangiomas" at that time), venous varicosities, and overgrowth. At about the same time, the English dermatologist Parkes Weber reported the combination of "hemangiomas" and overgrowth of a limb. For many years, the names of all three physicians were linked as a confusing (and incorrect) term "Klippel-Weber-Trenaunay syndrome," which still is (unfortunately) used ...

A person born with a port-wine birthmark on his or her face and eyelid(s) has an 8 to 15 percent chance of being diagnosed with Sturge-Weber syndrome. The rare disorder causes malformations in certain regions of the bodys capillaries (small blood vessels). Port-wine birthmarks appear on areas of the face affected by these capillary malformations.. Aside from the visible symptoms of Sturge-Weber, there are also some more subtle and worrisome ones. Sturge-Weber syndrome can be detected by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Such images can reveal a telltale series of malformed capillaries in regions of the brain. Brain capillary malformations can have potentially devastating neurological consequences, including epileptic seizures.. Frustratingly, since doctors first described Sturge-Weber syndrome over 100 years ago, the relationship between brain capillary malformations and seizures has remained somewhat unexplained. In 2013, a Johns Hopkins University team found a GNAQ R183Q gene mutation in ...

Spindle cell lesions of the breast cover a wide spectrum of diseases ranging from reactive tumor-like lesions to high-grade malignant tumors. The recognition of the benign spindle cell tumor-like lesions (nodular fasciitis; reactive spindle cell nodule after biopsy, inflammatory pseudotumor/inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor; fascicular variant of pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia) and tumors (myofibroblastoma, benign fibroblastic spindle cell tumor, leiomyoma, schwannoma, spindle cell lipoma, solitary fibrous tumor, myxoma) is crucial to avoid confusion with morphologically similar but more aggressive bland-appearing spindle cell tumors, such as desmoid-type fibromatosis, low-grade (fibromatosis-like) spindle cell carcinoma, low-grade fibrosarcoma/myofibroblastic sarcoma and dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans ...
ABSTRACT. BACKGROUND: Peliosis is a rare condition characterised by multiple cyst-like, blood-filled cavities within the parenchyma of solid organs, most commonly affecting the liver. Isolated splenic peliosis is an even more unusual phenomenon. Patients with AIDS may develop peliosis in association with bacillary angiomatosis. This is due to secondary infection with Bartonella henselae or a similar organism, Rochalimaea henselae ...
Sturge-Weber syndrome is a neurocutaneous disorder with skin, eye, and brain involvement. Prior series suggest about 50% of patients have seizures/neurodeterioration. Low-dose (3-5 mg/kg/d) aspirin use in this population is controversial. This study further addresses the side effects and outcomes of low-dose aspirin usage in Sturge-Weber syndrome. Fifty-eight subjects on aspirin with brain involvement were analyzed in a retrospective chart review. Charts were evaluated for brain involvement, age at first seizure, and side effects. Subjects clinical stability was compared using neurologic scores. The majority of subjects had neurologic scores reflecting reasonable seizure control (91%), none or mild hemiparesis (57%), no vision impairment (71%), and none or mild cognitive impairment (80%). Forty-nine reported no significant side effects, and 9 reported either allergic reaction or minimal to significant bleeding on aspirin. This cohorts clinical experience adds significant support for low-dose ...
von Hippel-Lindau syndrome. Sagittal vertebral angiogram of the same patient as in the previous 3 images shows a hypervascular intramural nodule (open arrow) that demonstrates a prolonged and intense enhancement with a surrounding avascular area, representing the cyst surrounding the mural nodule (solid arrows). Note the stretching of vessels around the cyst. The final diagnosis was a cerebellar hemangioblastoma associated with von Hippel-Lindau syndrome (same patient as in Images 1-3).VHL is characterized by a predisposition to bilateral and multicentric retinal angiomas, central nervous system (CNS) hemangioblastomas; renal cell carcinomas; pheochromocytoma s; islet cell tumors of the pancreas; endolymphatic sac tumors[1] ; and renal, pancreatic, and epididymal cysts.[2, 3] CNS hemangioblastoma (Lindau tumor) is the most commonly recognized manifestation of VHL and occurs in 40% of patients.[4] ...
Phaeochromocytomas are rare neuroendocrine tumours that produce catecholamines and numerous secretory proteins and peptides, including neuropeptide Y (NPY), a vasoactive peptide with influences on blood pressure. The production of catecholamines and NPY by phaeochromocytomas is highly variable. This study examined influences of hereditary factors and differences in catecholamine production on tumour expression of NPY, as assessed by quantitative PCR, enzyme immunoassay and immunohistochemistry. Phaeochromocytomas included hereditary adrenaline-producing tumours (adrenergic phenotype) in multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN 2), predominantly noradrenaline-producing tumours (noradrenergic phenotype) in von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) syndrome, and other adrenergic and noradrenergic tumours where there was no clear hereditary syndrome. NPY levels in phaeochromocytomas from VHL patients were lower (P,0.0001) than in those from MEN 2 patients for both mRNA (84-fold difference) and the peptide (99-fold ...
Additional supplemental methods used are detailed in the supplemental materials.. Human samples. After written informed consent, 10 ARMD patient eyes naive to anti-VEGF therapy had aqueous humor sampled before intravitreal bevacizumab injection (1.25 mg) and 48 hours later by Yoshihiro Wakabayashi or Yasuyuki Yamauchi (Tokyo Medical University Hospital). Eight patients were studied, 5 male and 3 female, with an average age of 71.1 ± 3.2 years. All had typical ARMD diagnosed after fundus examination with a fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography, and optical coherence tomography. Wet ARMD was diagnosed according to established criteria (77). The eyes studied showed classic CNV (2/10), minimally classic CNV (1/10), and occult CNV (7/10), but no retinal angiomatous proliferation. Patients with cataracts causing moderate-to-severe visual disturbance received elective surgery 2 days after intravitreal bevacizumab. Aqueous humor was collected before surgery for evaluation after ...

Bartonella spp. are responsible for emerging and re-emerging diseases around the world. The majority of human infections are caused by Bartonella henselae, Bartonella quintana and Bartonella bacilliformis, although other Bartonella spp. have also been associated with clinical manifestations in humans. The severity of Bartonella infection correlates with the patients immune status. Clinical manifestations can range from benign and self-limited to severe and life-threatening disease. Clinical conditions associated with Bartonella spp. include local lymphadenopathy, bacteraemia, endocarditis, and tissue colonisation resulting in bacillary angiomatosis and peliosis hepatis. Without treatment, Bartonella infection can cause high mortality. To date, no single treatment is effective for all Bartonella-associated diseases. In the absence of systematic reviews, treatment decisions for Bartonella infections are based on case reports that test a limited number of patients. Antibiotics do not significantly ...
