Histologically, cords of hepatocytes are present, but there is no lobular architecture. These tumors are associated with certain viral infections (hepatitis B and hepatitis C viruses), aflatoxin (produced by Aspergillus flavus), and cirrhosis. Microscopic sections of these tumors reveal pleomorphic tumor cells that form trabecular patterns, which are similar to the normal architecture of the liver. Clinically, hepatocellular carcinomas have a tendency to grow into the portal vein or the inferior vena cava and may be associated with several types of paraneoplastic syndromes, such as polycythemia, hypoglycemia, and hypercalcemia. It is important to compare the characteristics of hepatocellular carcinomas with those of another type of primary tumor of the liver, namely cholangiocarcinoma, which is a malignancy of bile ducts. Histologically, the tumor 348 Pathology cells contain cytoplasmic mucin, which is not found in hepatomas. Grossly there may be multiple or single nodules, which microscopically usually resemble the primary tumor. For example, metastatic colon cancer to the liver histologically reveals adenocarcinoma. Metastatic disease to the liver usually does not cause functional abnormalities of the liver itself, and the liver enzymes and bilirubin levels in the blood are usually normal. Angiosarcomas are highly aggressive malignant tumors that arise from the endothelial cells of the sinusoids of the liver. Their development is associated with certain chemicals, such as vinyl chloride, arsenic, and Thorotrast. Microscopically, these tumors consist of ribbons and rosettes of fetal embryonal cells. Cholesterol stones are pale yellow, hard, round, radiographically translucent stones that are most often multiple. Their formation is related to multiple factors including female sex hormones (such as with oral contraceptives), obesity, rapid weight reduction, and hyperlipidemic states. Decreased functioning of this enzyme, such as with a congenital deficiency or inhibition by clofibrate, causes excess secretion of cholesterol and an increased incidence of cholesterol gallstones. The other main type of gallstones are pigment stones, which are brown or black in color and composed of bilirubin calcium salts. They are found more commonly in Asian populations and are related to chronic hemolytic states, diseases of the small intestines, and bacterial infections of the biliary tree. In contrast to 7-hydroxylase and bile acid synthesis, 1-hydroxylase is involved in vitamin D synthesis, while 11-hydroxylase, 17-hydroxylase, and 21hydroxylase are all enzymes found in the adrenal cortex. Jaundice secondary to extrahepatic obstruction is associated with normal hemoglobin levels, normal serum indirect bilirubin levels, and increased levels of direct bilirubin and alkaline phosphatase.

The nerves of the lower limbs emerge from the lumbar vertebrae which are liable to be wrenched from their normal location. The surgeon, not comprehending this fact, his skill, not knowledge, is taxed to the utmost. A break is repaired, but the displaced bone with its attending thread-like filaments of nervous, muscular, cartilaginous and tendinous tissues, remain uncorrected. I managed to walk to the house, but have been unable to bear any weight on that foot since. By pressure above the ankle I discovered a hypersensitive nerve which I traced to the lumbar region. I tried to explain to him that the instant he was kicked he jerked his leg away from danger, wrenching a lumbar vertebra of his backbone; thereby placing a pressure upon the nerve which reached to, and had its ending in, the affected ankle. I found the affected nerve at its exit in the lumbar region and again followed it to the ankle. He insisted on my treating the ankle, saying his back was all right; that the ailment was in the ankle. He insisted that the kick of the cow was the cause, not a displaced bone in his back. I refused to touch the ankle, telling him I did not want to rob him of his money nor fool away my time. In about three months he again returned, walking on one leg and two crutches, as on the two previous calls. Moullin gives the diagnostic symptoms of a sprained joint thus: "Creaking or grating, as the surfaces move on each other, is always present in these joints. It may be but the faintest sensation of friction, only to be perceived by pressing the hand firmly on the part, as if two smooth silken surfaces were being rubbed together; or the noise produced as the fluid is squeezed from one side of the joint to the other may be distinctly audible to those around. This, of course, depends upon the condition of the lining membrane of the cavity, whether it has merely lost the polish from its surface or is covered over with folds and fringes, which project from all round the margin into the interior. The conditions are known as synovitis, inflammation of the synovial membrane; thecitis, inflammation of the sheaths of the tendons; syndesomitis, inflammation of the ligaments; arthritis, or osteo-arthritis or pan-arthritis when all the structures of the joint are involved. Herrick states: "In sprains of the back some difficulty may be met with in managing the cases satisfactorily. As remarked in another chapter, it requires quite a force to produce a true injury to the spinal cord, with which condition a sprain of the back is most liable to be confounded. The history of the injury and the appearance of the individual, as well as the position the patient assumed when first seen, or even thereafter, will serve to lend aid in making the diagnosis. The patient always favors the muscles of the back, and is careful not to put these in contraction, yet he is perfectly able to use them. In associated spinal trouble local tenderness is not always prominent, while disturbances of sensation and motion are to be observed. A sprain is usually caused by a strain in an unguarded moment, when tension is relaxed.

That is to say, all of the machinery which enters into the preparation of substances for absorption is simply accessory to that function, which is itself accessory to circulation, aeration and assimilation. All of the machinery which takes part in the function of depuration is accessory to it and also to assimilation. There is no similarity between living bodies which possess functions and machines by which goods are manufactured. Functions are the result of vital force; machinery is run by the laws and properties of matter, such as gravitation, heat, light, magnetism and electricity. To attempt to demonstrate the vital acts of the human body by the working of machinery is futile. Machinery manufactures, shapes or combines materials Is the body one superb machine, or is it composed of an innumerable number of machines? Is it physiological to assert there is a machine at the point of each function, as stated, at the peripheral ending of each nerve; if so, there are millions of machines in the body. Secretion is an organic function executed in the glands and consists of a separation and combination of certain materials, the structure of each gland and the composition of the prepared fluids differing. The fluids of the body are combinations of the ingredients of food and water taken in the body; they are not manufactured by hand or machine. To represent the body as a mill filled with, and composed in all its parts by, machines, shows a lack of comprehension of language and the principles of Chiropractic. The circulation in animals and plants is controlled by vital force, not by a system of machinery or machines, as Friend Carver states. To consider the body a "human machine," would necessitate considering all animals, birds, reptiles, insects, trees and vegetables, not only as machines but each filled with machines. He says, "If, as we must admit, the normal body is a perfect machine, it is evident that so long as each part sustains a proper mechanical relation to every other part and is supplied with abundant power, the result of its activities, however numerous and varied, cannot be other than that of health. As the Intelligent Energy that operates the human machine is derived from an Infinite Source, the Universal Intelligence, and is, therefore, limited only by the capacity of the brain to transform and individualize it, it is evident that any excess, deficiency or irregularity of action, either of which is a form of disease, must be due to some mechanical obstruction which prevents its normal transmission. A "mechanical obstruction which prevents the normal transmission" of "any excess, deficiency or irregularity" of "abundant power. It irritates in a large share of diseases, and excites functional activity beyond a normal degree. The terrestrial, quantitative relations of force and matter are vastly different from those pertaining to those which are mental, vital or spiritual, and should not be considered as one and the same in force or material. In biology, it is the internal, inherent power, the capacity of acting, producing or doing work of an organ or organism, whether exerted or not.

Gastroenteritis Gastroenteritis is the most common form of salmonellosis in the United States. Symptoms generally appear 6 to 48 hours after the consumption of contaminated food or water, with the initial presentation consisting of nausea, vomiting, and nonbloody diarrhea. Epidemiology Salmonella can colonize virtually all animals, including poultry, reptiles, livestock, rodents, domestic animals, birds, and humans. Animal-to-animal spread and the use of Salmonella-contaminated animal feeds maintain an animal reservoir. Serotypes such as Salmonella Typhi and Salmonella Paratyphi are highly adapted to humans and do not cause disease in nonhuman hosts. She was a resident of the Philippines who had been traveling in the United States for the previous 11 days. On physical examination, she was febrile and had an enlarged liver, abdominal pain, and an abnormal urinalysis. Blood cultures were collected upon admission to the hospital and were positive the next day with Salmonella Typhi. Because the organism was susceptible to fluoroquinolones, this therapy was selected. Within 4 days, she had defervesced and was discharged to return home to the Philippines. Although typhoid fever can be a very serious lifethreatening illness, it can initially present with nonspecific symptoms, as was seen in this woman. Pathogenesis and Immunity Shigellae cause disease by invading and replicating in cells lining the colon. Structural gene proteins mediate the adherence of the organisms to the cells, as well as their invasion, intracellular replication, and cell-to-cell spread. These genes are carried on a large virulence plasmid but are regulated by chromosomal genes. Shigella species appear unable to attach to differentiated mucosal cells; rather, they first attach to and invade the M cells located in Peyer patches. These proteins induce membrane ruffling on the target cell, leading to engulfment of the bacteria. Shigellae lyse the phagocytic vacuole and replicate in the host cell cytoplasm (unlike Salmonella, which replicate in the vacuole). With the rearrangement of actin filaments in the host cells, the bacteria are propelled through the cytoplasm to adjacent cells, where cell-to-cell passage occurs. This, in turn, destabilizes the integrity of the intestinal wall and allows the bacteria to reach the deeper epithelial cells. The B subunits bind to a host cell glycolipid (Gb3) and facilitate transfer of the A subunit into the cell.

A total of 43 limbs in 31 patients (12 male and 19 female) with a mean age of 14 years (2 to 54) were treated. The lesions were treated in the tibia in 19 limbs, in the femur in 16, and in the forearm in eight. The Ilizarov frame was used in 25 limbs, the Taylor Spatial Frame in seven, the Orthofix fixator in six, the Monotube in four and the Heidelberg fixator in one. The mean correction angle for those with angular deformity was 23 degrees (7 degrees to 45 degrees). Four patients required a second operation for recurrent deformity of further limb lengthening. A combined use of a free vascularised flap and an external fixator for reconstruction of lower extremity defects in children. Patient pathologies included: 3 soft tissue degloving injuries, one soft tissue and bone avulsion, one severe burn contracture, one resurfacing of soft tissue and bone necrosis, and one osteosarcoma resection defect. Static external fixators were used to stabilise the free vascularised flaps at the time of reconstruction, with the ankle in a neutral position. All flaps but one survived; the failed one was immediately reconstructed with a contralateral, latissimus dorsi flap. Two patients developed equinus contracture 6 and 3 years later, after removal of the external fixator, and were corrected by distraction, using a dynamic Ilizarov frame. Late development of equinus contracture can be safely corrected by distraction, without compromising flap viability. Orthopaedics & Traumatology, Wardak Hospital, Kabul, Afghanistan, drmmwardak@rediffmail. Crush injuries of the foot are one of the most difficult and challenging tasks for a trauma surgeon to manage in terms of limb salvage and provision of a painless functional foot. Initially, the ring fixator is applied for the soft tissue reconstruction and infection control, and the next stage consists of percutaneous "inverted L"-shaped osteotomy in the posterior half of the lower tibia. The study included 32 patients with hindfoot crush injuries involving talus, calcaneum, a combination of both, or even involving the adjacent tarsal bones. All these crush injuries were classified using the Gustilo and Anderson classification. The postoperative functional assessment of the feet was done using the Maryland Foot Score system with a minimum follow-up of four years. The complications of this procedure were the same as with the use of the ring fixator elsewhere in the body. This method provides a technique to salvage the foot and produce a painless, stable, fused foot in one of the most difficult settings of a hindfoot crush injury.

Any palpable lymph nodes should be assessed with regard to size, location, and mobility. Specific characteristics of regional lymphadenopathy, if present, should be noted, such as extracapsular spread, central necrosis, and size of involved lymph nodes. Labs Blood count, electrolyte, and liver function tests should be performed to assess nutritional status. It is best to avoid open biopsy of a neck mass, as tumor spillage and violation of fascial planes is problematic. Head and Neck 349 laryngoscopy, esophagoscopy, and bronchoscopy together, to search for synchronous lesions. This may also lend insight as to the extent of the primary lesion, particularly important in the smoking patient. Surgical resection remains the gold standard for treatment of head and neck cancer. Individual chemotherapeutic agents effective in the therapy of head and neck cancer include cisplatin, methotrexate, 5-fluorouracil, taxanes, ifosfamide, and bleomycin. N Cancer of Unknown Primary Patients with head and neck cancer typically present with a painless neck mass. A primary tumor is considered unknown only after a thorough investigation (including physical exam, imaging, and biopsies) has been completed. The next step is to perform panendoscopy with biopsies whether or not the primary site was located on imaging. As noted earlier, panendoscopy typically included bronchoscopy, esophagoscopy, and direct laryngoscopy. If no obvious tumor is visualized, tonsillectomy and guided biopsies are performed. Some advocate a unilateral tonsillectomy limited to the side of the neck mass, but others advocate bilateral tonsillectomies in this circumstance. Each of these sites should at least be inspected with consideration of guided biopsies. Surgical excision in the form of a neck dissection followed by radiation therapy allows for a lower total dose of radiation. Primary radiation therapy provides treatment to both the upper aerodigestive tract and its locoregional metastasis but forces the radiation oncologist to treat a wider field as the primary site is unknown. This should include the surgical oncologist, medical and radiation oncologist, oral surgeon, prosthodontist, speech language and swallowing pathologist, nurse, and social worker. There is controversy as to the need for a planned neck dissection following radiotherapy in patients with high-risk disease. There is no evidence that routine follow-up beyond 3 years improves prognosis, although many clinicians support yearly follow-up. Patients should be told of the risk of a second primary tumor and encouraged to report any new symptoms.

Filoviridae: Ebola hemorrhagic fever was first recognized in the western equatorial province of the Sudan and the nearby region of Zaire in 1976. A second outbreak occurred in Sudan in 1979, and in 1995 a large outbreak (316 cases) developed in Kikwit, Zaire, from a single index case. A related virus (Ebola Reston) was isolated from monkeys imported into the United States from the Philippine Islands in 1989. While subclinical infections occurred among exposed animal handlers, Ebola Reston has not been identified as a human pathogen. Marburg epidemics have occurred on six occasions: five times in Africa, and once in Europe. The first recognized outbreak occurred in Marburg, Germany, and Yugoslavia, among people exposed to African green monkeys, and resulted in 31 cases with seven deaths. Filoviruses may be spread from human to human by direct contact with infected blood, secretions, organs, or semen. Ebola Reston apparently spread from monkey to monkey, and from monkeys to humans by the respiratory route. Flaviviridae: Yellow fever and dengue are two mosquito-borne fevers that have great importance in the history of military campaigns and military medicine. Tick-borne flaviruses include the agents of Kyasanur Forest disease in India, and Omsk hemorrhagic fever in Siberia. There is both divergence and uncertainty about which host factors and viral strain characteristics might be responsible for the mechanisms of disease. For example, an immunopathogenic mechanism has been identified for dengue hemorrhagic fever, which usually occurs among patients previously infected with a heterologous dengue serotype. Antibody directed against the previous strain enhances uptake of dengue virus by circulating monocytes. Lysis of the infected monocytes by cytotoxic T-cell responses releases proinflammatory cytokines, pro-coagulants, and anticoagulants, which in turn cause vascular injury and permeability, complement activation, and a systemic coagulopathy. Physical examination may reveal only conjunctival injection, mild hypotension, flushing, and petechial hemorrhages. Apart from epidemiologic and intelligence information, some distinctive clinical features may suggest a specific etiologic agent. Among the arenavirus infections, Lassa fever can cause severe peripheral edema due to capillary leak, but hemorrhage is uncommon, while hemorrhage is common in infection with the South American arenaviruses. Due to their worldwide occurrence, additional consideration should be given to hantavirus infections. Nephropathia epidemica features prominent fever, myalgia, abdominal pain, and oliguria, without shock or severe hemorrhagic manifestations. Patients with arenavirus or hantavirus infections often recall having seen rodents during the presumed incubation period; but as the viruses are spread to humans by aerosolized excreta or environmental contamination, actual contact with the rodent reservoir is not necessary.

Chronic gastritis eventually leads to replacement of the normal gastric mucosa with fibrosis and proliferation of intestinal-type epithelium. Although the organism can be seen in specimens stained with hematoxylin-eosin or Gram stain, the Warthin-Starry silver stain is the most sensitive. When an adequate specimen is collected and examined by an experienced microscopist, the test sensitivity and specificity approaches 100% and is considered diagnostic. Because this is an invasive test, alternative test procedures are preferred for routine diagnosis. The microscopic examination of stool specimens for helicobacters is not reliable, because the Clinical Diseases (Clinical Case 28-2) Disease caused by helicobacters is directly related to their site of colonization. Antigen Detection Biopsy specimens can also be tested for the presence of bacterial urease activity. The sensitivity of the direct test with biopsy specimens varies from 75% to 95%; however, the specificity approaches 100%. As with microscopy, the limitation of this method is the requirement for a biopsy specimen. Noninvasive urease testing of human breath (urea breath test) following consumption of an isotopically labeled urea solution has excellent sensitivity and specificity. Unfortunately, this assay is relatively expensive because of the cost of the detection instruments. These tests are easy to perform, inexpensive, and able to be used on stool specimens rather than biopsies. Furthermore, the titer of antibodies measured does not correlate with the severity of disease or the response to therapy. However, the tests are useful for documenting exposure to the bacteria, either for epidemiologic studies or for the initial evaluation of a symptomatic patient. Treatment, Prevention, and Control Numerous antibiotic regimens have been evaluated for treating H. The greatest success in curing gastritis or peptic ulcer disease has been accomplished with the combination of a proton pump inhibitor. Susceptibility testing should be performed if the patient does not respond to therapy. Metronidazole can also be used in combination therapy, but resistance is commonplace.

Differentiation of schwannomas from neurofibromas is of relevance to surgeons because schwannomas can be easily shelled out while preserving nerve contiguity. In most neurofibromas, however, the nerve is incorporated within the mass, and the required surgery includes resection and subsequent nerve grafting to preserve and restore function. In the case of schwannomas, this type of relationship between tumor and nerve presents the possibility of enucleation (removal of the tumor with preservation of the nerve from which it arose). The tumor is resistant to radiotherapy and chemotherapy, and those occurring in neurofibromatosis type 1 behave in a more aggressive fashion than those not associated with the syndrome. N Infectious Diseases of the Salivary Glands Acute Sialadenitis Acute sialadenitis is an acute inflammation of a salivary gland. Several viral microorganisms have been identified as causative agents for infections of the salivary glands. Signs and Symptoms Symptoms of acute sialadenitis include acute painful swelling of the affected salivary gland. Acute Bacterial Sialadenitis Acute bacterial sialadenitis is a suppurative infection that most commonly infects the parotid glands in debilitated, dehydrated, or elderly patients. Acute bacterial sialadenitis is thought to be an ascending bacterial infection due to decreased salivary flow. Situations that cause a tendency for acute sialadenitis include diabetes mellitus, immunocompromised state, and poor oral hygiene. Signs and Symptoms Symptoms include diffuse, painful swelling of the affected gland. The orifice duct of the affected salivary gland may be red and massage of the gland may express purulent material from the orifice. Head and Neck 445 Microbiology the main causative pathogen is Staphylococcus aureus. Other bacterial organisms include Streptococcus viridans, Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Escherichia coli. Treatment Options Medical treatment includes antibiotics, hydration, sialogogues (such as lemon wedges), warm compresses, gland massage, and meticulous oral hygiene. If an abscess develops, incision and drainage should be performed with careful attention to the underlying facial nerve.
