This is a case of a 31-year-old woman with a chondrosarcoma of the hyoid bone. The patient presented with a mass in the left submandibular region. Fine-needle aspiration cytology suggested chondroma, but further imaging investigation with CT revealed an exophytic tumor originating from the body of the hyoid bone. Histopathology of the surgical specimen confirmed the diagnosis of intermediate-grade chondrosarcoma.

The aim of this study is to develop new tools using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that will improve the brachytherapy procedure and treatment for participants with gynecologic cancer. This research study is designed to develop new technology using MR imaging to improve the brachytherapy procedure for participants with gynecologic cancer. The brachytherapy procedure will take place in an MRI procedure room within the Advanced Multimodality Image-Guided Operating (AMIGO) suite at Brigham and Women's Hospital. The purpose of the study will be to evaluate whether the use of an MR-tracking device will improve the placement of the brachytherapy catheters. This information will also be used to develop new software for real-time brachytherapy planning by our physics team. The investigators believe that the development of an MR-tracking device will allow them to better place the brachytherapy catheters for radiation treatment and ultimately improve outcomes for patients, including better local tumor control and a lower risk of side effects. The investigators will also evaluate new MRI protocols to better define the tumor at the time of brachytherapy. Brachytherapy treatment planning and delivery will follow the standard of care.

This is a case of occult microscopic basal cell carcinoma arising in a lesion of seborrheic keratosis. There is a 0.8 × 0.7-cm well-defined, brown nodule on the right buttock.  By IHC report, they diagnosed it as a basal cell carcinoma. So, this case indicates that the basal cell carcinoma could arise from seborrheic keratosis and might help to clarify the origin of basal cell carcinoma.

The administration of convalescent plasma is often used for treatment of emerging infectious diseases. This natural history protocol will collect plasma from subjects that were vaccinated to or recovered from an emerging infectious disease of interest, in a manner that the plasma can be given to other subjects as a therapeutic. Any administration of plasma to subjects will be under a separate protocol.

This case report presents a well-functioning revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA) who suffered a periprosthetic tibia fracture. Initial treatment with plating failed and the fracture had to be revised due to an infectious non-union with a multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis, and its eradication was complicated by septic loosening of the patient’s knee arthroplasty. After multiple revisions of the nonunion, a two-stage exchange arthroplasty with a partial replacement of the distal femur due to a bone defect was necessary.
