Glioblastoma Multiforme in The COVID-19 Era: How Italy Managed to Surgically Treat the Neuro-Oncological Patient Despite the Pandemic
Case Report

1. Abstract

1.1. Aims: The wave of SARS-CoV-2 is affecting every country in the world in a more or less homogeneous way and one wonders what is the best therapeutic option for the infected patient diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme. Neurosurgeons are now called to balance the risks of the negative impact of the pandemic and those of cancer. Despite the infection, the treatment of neuro- oncological patients cannot be significantly delayed. For this reason, doctors face a challenge during the pandemic: finding the right balance between SARS-CoV-2 infection and treating the patient’s own neuro-oncological status.

 

A Rare Case of Tumid Lupus Erythematosus with Unilateral Linear Distribution in A Young Child
Case Report

1.Abstract
Tumid Lupus Erythematosus (TLE) as a rare variant of Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus (CLE) is characterized by edematous, urticarial-like annular papules and plaques. TLE has similar histopathologic findings to CLE such as periadnexal lymphocytic infiltration and interstitial mucin deposition. Although TLE develops on sun-exposed areas at any age, it is rarely distributed along the Blashcko lines and develops in infancy and childhood. Unlike CLE, skin lesion of TLE heals without leaving scarring or dyspigmentation. Here we report a rare case of unilateral linear TLE in a four-year-old girl which was improved by intralesional corticosteroid injection and oral antimalarial drug with leaving post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Pancreatic Metastasis from Unresectable Lung Adenocarcinoma: A Case Report
Case Report

1.Abstract
1.1. Background: Metastatic lesions of the pancreas are uncommon, accounting for approximately 2% of pancreatic malignancies. The most common primary tumors to give rise to pancreatic metastases are lung cancer, renal cell carcinoma and carcinoma of gastrointestinal origin. Less commonly metastases from lung adenocarcinoma have been reported.

1.2. Case presentation: Here we reported a case with pancreatic and Left adrenal metastasis 6 months after chemoradiotherapy for lung adenocarcinoma who was diagnosed in July 2017, and the pancreatic tumor was diagnosed using endoscopic ultrasound- guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA).
