  • Invasive fungal wound infection in an otherwise healthy trauma patient (Mucor Trauma). [Case Reports]
    Trauma Case Rep 2019; 24:100251Wilson W, Ali-Osman F, … Mangram A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Mucormycosis is a rare infection that has been increasingly documented in trauma patients. Early recognition together with prompt debridement and antifungal therapy is key to successful management. Understanding risk factors for post-traumatic mucormycosis should raise our index of suspicion and prompt early diagnosis and initiation of treatment. Aggressive debridement is a critical component of appropriate management due to the angioinvasive spread of the mucor fungi. This means frequent debridement beyond the demarcation of gangrenous tissue. The management of our patient demonstrates the importance of early recognition of the clinical presentation, prompt initiation of antifungal therapy, and aggressive debridement of the wound.
  • Prognostic Parameters in Differentiated Thyroid Carcinomas. [Review]
    Surg Pathol Clin 2019; 12(4):883-900Cipriani NA
  • Differentiated thyroid carcinomas make up most thyroid malignancies. The AJCC staging system and the ATA risk prediction system are the best predictors of mortality and recurrence, respectively. Key factors to be identified and reported by pathologists are reviewed in this article and include: (1) aggressive histologic variants of papillary thyroid carcinoma (including tall cell, columnar cell, a…
  • A Diagnostic Dilemma of Sinonasal T Cell Lymphoma: Report of A Unique Case and Literature Review. [Journal Article]
    Gulf J Oncolog 2019; 1(31):83-89V S, Thamby SP, … Abdullah B
  • CONCLUSIONS: The case presented here was initially diagnosed as a chronic sinusitis, not as sinonasal NK/Tcell lymphoma which later developed into extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma. The prognosis showed improvement for nasal lymphomas but remains poor for disseminated and extranasal lymphomas which are more aggressive with lower survival rate. It is clinically important to differentiate diseases for proper staging and monitoring as they require completely different treatment strategies.
  • The surgical dilemma of primary surgery for follicular thyroid neoplasms. [Review]
    Best Pract Res Clin Endocrinol Metab 2019; 33(4):101292Staubitz JI, Musholt PB, Musholt TJ
  • Follicular thyroid carcinoma is the second most prevalent form of differentiated thyroid carcinoma, following papillary thyroid carcinoma. Preoperative diagnosis is hampered by the fact that fine-needle aspiration cytology as well as supplemental molecular analysis cannot unambiguously distinguish between follicular thyroid carcinoma and benign follicular thyroid adenoma. The 2017 WHO classificat…
  • An unusual cause of bowel obstruction: Rhizopus Arrhizus diverticulitis. [Case Reports]
    Med Mycol Case Rep 2019; 25:15-18Kou C, Rendo M, … Yun HC
  • Mucormycosis is a fungal infection primarily afflicting immunocompromised or diabetic patients. Its presentation ranges from rhino-orbito-cerebral infections to disseminated mucormycosis with angioinvasion. We present a patient who developed a bowel obstruction one month after bone marrow transplant and was diagnosed with Rhizopus arrhizus diverticulitis despite antifungal therapy since transplan…
