  1. A review of the potential role of tumour-promoting compounds produced by <em>Lyngbya majuscula</em> in marine turtle fibropapillomatosis

    A review of the potential role of tumour-promoting compounds produced by <em>Lyngbya majuscula</em> in marine turtle fibropapillomatosis

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) have increased in abundance and severity in recent decades. Whereas the implications for human impacts and intoxication resulting from blooms have been extensively studied, the ecological implications of these microalgae are less well understood. Many HAB...
  2. Ectopic ACTH syndrome: a clinical challenge

    Ectopic ACTH syndrome: a clinical challenge

    A patient was managed in our endocrinology unit with ectopic Cushing's syndrome from an adrenocorticotropic hormone-producing neuroendocrine carcinoma of the anal canal. There was limited response to standard therapy, which made it difficult to correct the electrolyte and metabolic derangements...
  3. Maxillary brown tumour: unusual presentation of parathyroid carcinoma

    Maxillary brown tumour: unusual presentation of parathyroid carcinoma

    This is a report of a maxillary brown tumour caused by primary hyperparathyroidism (HPT) secondary to parathyroid carcinoma. A 62-year-old man presented with a large swelling in the right maxilla, which caused right-sided nasal obstruction, intermittent bleeding and diplopia. A...
  4. Double jeopardy: hypoglycaemia and advanced hepatocellular carcinoma

    Double jeopardy: hypoglycaemia and advanced hepatocellular carcinoma

    Nonislet cell tumour-induced hypoglycaemia is an uncommon, but serious complication of malignancy. The aetiopathogenesis is largely as a result of tumoral overproduction of incompletely processed insulin-like growth factor-II. We describe the case of a 30-year-old black male patient who presented...
  5. Leiomyoma: a rare cause of adrenal incidentaloma

    Leiomyoma: a rare cause of adrenal incidentaloma

    A 40-year-old, treatment-naïve, human immunodeficiency virus- (HIV) positive male was found to have a large right adrenal incidentaloma on ultrasound of the abdomen, which was confirmed on adrenal computed tomography imaging. The laboratory workup excluded functionality of the mass lesion...
  6. A metastatic unclassified trophoblastic tumour with spontaneous bilateral pneumothoraces

    A metastatic unclassified trophoblastic tumour with spontaneous bilateral pneumothoraces

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Gynaecological Oncology
    Gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD) is a spectrum of diseases associated with pregnancy. Epithelioid trophoblastic tumour (ETT) is a rare neoplastic proliferation of the intermediate trophoblast that can be distinguished from choriocarcinoma. A 35-year-old female presented with persistent vaginal bleeding, raised...
  7. Sclerosing stromal tumour of the ovary

    Sclerosing stromal tumour of the ovary

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Gynaecological Oncology
    Sclerosing stromal tumours (SSTs) are rare, benign, sex cord stromal tumours of the ovary. They affect women, who complain mainly of menstrual irregularity, in their second and third decades. We report a histologically confirmed case of a 23-year-old woman who...
