Background Ectopic hormone-secreting pheochromocytomas <br />are rare; only case reports exist in the literature. This <br />condition has been linked with increased malignancy, <br />familial syndromes, and ACTH secretion. We wanted to <br />test these hypotheses and shed light on the nature of ectopic <br />hormone-secreting pheochromocytomas. <br />Methods This is a multicenter (francophone) observational <br />study. Inclusion was based upon abnormal preoperative <br />hormone tests in patients with pheochromocytoma <br />that normalized after removal of the tumor. Where <br />possible, immunohistochemistry was performed to confirm <br />that ectopic secretion came from the tumor. <br />Results Sixteen cases were found: nine female and seven <br />male patients. Median age was 50.5 (range 31–89) years. <br />Most presented with hypertension, diabetes, or cushingoid <br />features. Ten patients had specific symptoms from the <br />ectopic hormone secretion. Two had a familial syndrome. <br />Of eight patients with excess cortisol secretion, three died <br />as a result of the tumor resection: two had pheochromocytomas[ <br />15 cm and their associated cortisol hypersecretion <br />complicated their postoperative course. The other died <br />from a torn subhepatic vein. The 13 survivors did not <br />develop any evidence of malignancy during follow-up <br />(median 50 months). Symptoms from the ectopic secretion <br />resolved after removal of the tumor. Immunohistochemistry <br />was performed and was positive in eight tumors: five <br />ACTH, three calcitonins, and one VIP. <br />Conclusions Most pheochromocytomas with ectopic <br />secretion are neither malignant nor familial. Most ectopic <br />hormone-secreting pheochromocytoma cause hypercortisolemia. <br />Patients with a pheochromocytoma should be <br />worked up for ectopic hormones, because removal of the <br />pheochromocytoma resolves those symptoms. Associated <br />cortisol secretion needs careful attention. [less ▲]

Ureteral ectopia is a congenital abnormality in which one or both ureters does not open into the bladder. This is the most common cause of urinary incontinence in the immature bitch, but is rarely diagnosed in the male dog. Some breeds are predisposed (Siberian Husky, Labrador, Golden Retriever). Typical clinical signs are a continuous (but sometimes intermittent) leakage of urine since birth, although micturition can be normal. Other associated congenital abnormalities can be present (hydronephrosis, double vagina, cryptorchidism). Diagnostic techniques include excretory urography coupled with a pneumocystography, vaginourethrography, cystoscopy, vaginoscopy, and ultrasonography. Ectopic ureters can be unilateral (most commonly) or bilateral, and they are either intramural or extramural. Surgical correction is the treatment of choice. After a successful surgery, some patients can still show some degree of incontinence, due to the presence of urethral sphincter mechanism incompetence. This residual incontinence can be resolved in the majority of the cases with the use of alpha-adrenergic agents. [less ▲]

In southeastern D. R. Congo, about 550 metallophytes grow on soils with high copper and cobalt concentrations, 57 of which are endemics to these metalliferous environments. About 70% of those endemics are considered threatened by destruction of habitats through mining activities. To provide guidelines for future restoration programs, the edaphic ecological niches of eight copper endemics were studied using a pragmatic sampling method adapted for urgent conservation needs. Niches were modelled using violin plot along Cu, Co and C:N gradients representing the two main independent edaphic gradients among nine edaphic variables (C, N, C:N, K, P, pH, Co, Cu, and Mn). Copper endemics presented distinct edaphic niches along the copper and cobalt gradients, but differentiation was lower along the C:N gradient. In addition, edaphic elements presented covariations among them and metalliferous soils had higher nutrient and element content compared to the non-metalliferous soils of the region dominated by the Miombo woodland. The complexity of the soil composition and the edaphic niches of copper endemics revealed an important challenge in the implementation of the species conservation and the habitat restoration strategies of post-mining sites.

We present the results of our observations of mesoscale and sub-mesoscale eddies in the Red Sea based on synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery. The dataset used includes about 500 Envisat Advanced SAR (ASAR) images obtained in 2006-2011 over the Red Sea. We found more than 1000 sub-mesoscale eddies, which manifest in the SAR imagery both due to surfactant films (“black” eddies) and wave/current interactions (“white” eddies), depending on the local wind speed. Sub-mesoscale eddies in the Red Sea seem to be more innumerous than in other inner seas, presumably due to a relatively deep upper mixed layer in this basin. Moreover, more than 50 meso- and basin-scale eddies were found, whose rotation was mostly anti-cyclonic and whose diameters ranged up to approx. 200 km. Most of the basin-scale eddies were found between 21°N and 24°N, which is in agreement with earlier observations and with numerical modeling. [less ▲]

In the present study we analyze manifestations of submesoand mesoscale eddies in the Western Mediterranean Sea found in Envisat Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) imagery of 2010-2011. Location of mesoscale eddies found in the imagery outlined the main stream of the basin. Special attention is being paid to the relation between the numbers of cyclonic and anticyclonic eddies at different spatial scales. It is shown that eddies less than 60 km in diameter are dominantly cyclonic; at some intermediate scales (about 70 km) there is a balance between the numbers of cyclonic and anticyclonic eddies and at largest scales (>100 km) eddies are predominantly anticyclonic.
