Ethical Aspects of Smoking Cessation among the Population From Transylvania Region

Doina Todea, Andreea Coman*, Sorin Man

The ethical aspects related to the approach of persons addicted to tobacco use are a particular problem that is the concern of medical services, of pneumologists. Treated for a long time as ”an expression of the modern way of life”, smoking is considered today as a disease of pandemic proportions, being at the same time an epidemic that can be completely prevented.

Case Report

Endobronchial Teratoma

Dui Haddad, Heitor Paiva, Guilherme Saraiva Haddad, Caterin Arévalo*

Endobronchial teratoma is a very uncommon neoplasia in clinical practice. To date, only three cases of primary endobronchial teratoma were reported in the literature among the 50 cases of primary pulmonary teratomas. Here we describe a case of a mature primary endobronchial teratoma located at the bifurcation of the upper lobe bronchus and the intermediate bronchus, macroscopically simulating an endobronchial carcinoid tumor.

Niang S,1* Kashogwé I2, Dia A.D3, Thiam2K, Dia D.G3, Mbaye F.B.R3, Dia Kane Y3, Touré N.O3, Diatta A4

Described by Sir Percival Pott in 1780, tuberculous spondylodiscitis or pott’s disease is one of the most common forms of osteoarticular tuberculosis. It is still a problem in the world today especially in poor countries. It is often complicated by voluminous pottic abscess characteristic of their location and their channels of diffusion. The authors report a case of osteo-vertebral tuberculosis complicated by a large pottic abscess diffusing into the Psoas muscle.
