Parotid lipoblastoma in an infant

, : Parotid lipoblastoma in an infant. International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology 14(1): 41-44

We report a case of 'matured' lipoblastoma occurring within the parotid gland of a 7-month-old male. This benign fatty tumor is considered to represent localized continuation of fetal fat development into the post-birth period. At least 7 cases have been reported in the head and neck region, but this is the first known occurrence within a salivary gland.

It is suggested that patients with constipation should be screened for celiac disease. Similarly, it is recommended to investigate these patients for hypothyroidism and hypercalcemia. However, no evidence for these recommendations is available so...

The ecological and environmental impacts of the Sanmenxia Hydropower Station on the lower reach of the Yellow River were examined based on the monitoring data, since the 1970s, of the Sanmenxia Hydropower Station's normal operation. Different...

A gene encoding a protein antigen from Mycobacterium tuberculosis with a molecular weight of 40,000 has been sequenced. On the basis of sequence homology and functional analyses, we demonstrated that the protein is an L-alanine dehydrogenase (EC 1...

Sustained activation of NMDA receptors (NMDARs) plays an important role in controlling activity of neural circuits in the brain. However, whether this activation reflects the ambient level of excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate in brain tissue o...
