Thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms and dissection often develop in hypertensive elderly patients. At higher risk are smokers and those who have a family history of aortic aneurysms. In most affected families, the aortic aneurysms and dissection is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner with decreased penetrance and variable expressivity. Mutations at two chromosomal loci, TAA1 at 11q23 and the TAA2 at 5q13–14, and eight genes, MYLK, MYH11, TGFBR2, TGFBR1, ACTA2, SMAD3, TGFB2, and MAT2A, ...
Introduction: Today, mediastinal lymphadenopathy (MLAP) is increasingly detected and diagnosed owing to major technological advances. Nevertheless, efficacy of clinical-radiological methods has not yet been evaluated properly in comparison with cervical mediastinoscopy, considered the gold standard method for diagnosis of MLAP. Objectives: To evaluate diagnostic abilities of modern clinical –radiological methods in comparison with mediastinoscopy in patients with MLAP. Methods: A retrospective r...
Introduction: Hemorrhagic malignant pleural effusion (HMPE) is diagnosed in 47-50% of all malignant pleural effusions (MPE). Objectives: To evaluate clinical, radiological, and morphological manifestations of HMPE and results of talc pleurodesis treatment. Material and methods: Retrospective review of the medical charts of 135 MPE patients. HMPE group-42 patients, simple MPE group-63 patients; median age 67.9y, 43 males, 62 females. Results: Pronounced dyspnea (HMPE vs. simple MPE; 100% vs. 88.9...
Systemic amyloidosis frequently involves the small intestine. However, its association with diverticular disease has been seldom reported to date. To draw attention to this rare but potentially harmful association, we herein present an additional case of small bowel diverticular disease associated with amyloidosis.

Abstract Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a ubiquitous neoplasm that arises most commonly from the pleura. SFT arising within lung parenchyma (intrapulmonary SFT) has been rarely reported and is therefore not well recognized. We present a clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical study of 24 cases of primary intrapulmonary SFT. Patients' ages ranged from 44 to 83 years (mean, 58 y). None of the patients had evidence or history of a similar tumor elsewhere. Tumor size ranged from 2.3 to 22 cm (mea...
Background Members of two seemingly unrelated kindreds of Arab Moslem origin presented with pronounced early onset spastic paraparesis of upper and lower limbs, mild intellectual disability, kyphosis, pectus carinatum and hypertrichosis. Methods The authors performed neurological and developmental examinations on the affected individuals. The authors conducted whole genome linkage and haplotype analyses, followed by sequencing of candidate genes; RNA and protein expression studies; and finally p...

Purpose: Colorectal cancer studies typically include both colon and rectum tumors as a common entity, though this assumption is controversial and only minor differences have been reported at the molecular and epidemiologic level. We conducted a molecular study based on gene expression data of tumors from colon and rectum to assess the degree of similarity between these cancer sites at transcriptomic level. Experimental Design: A pooled analysis of 460 colon tumors and 100 rectum tumors from four...
