Crohn’s Disease and Urinary Manifestations: A Crohn’s Intestinal Disease Mimicking a Bladder Mass  [PDF]
Bronislava Papadatou, Lidia Monti, Giuliano Torre, Fabio Panetta, Antonella Diamanti
Health (Health) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/health.2014.612182
Abstract: We report a rare mode of presentation of Crohn’s Disease (CD) in a 17-year-old boy, who was admitted at our hospital due to abdominal pain, dysuria, polyuria and fever. The ultrasound showed an increased wall thickness of the small bowel and cecum and a vegetating lesion adjoined into the bladder. The histology was not suggestive of CD and it excluded the bladder neoplasm. Based on the biochemical assessment and the imaging, we started the treatment specific for CD (nutritional therapy by Modulen, short courses of steroids, azathioprine and mesalazine during the follow up), These treatments improved the gastrointestinal symptoms and the nutritional status of our patient but also induced the disappearance of the mass adjoined into the bladder. In spite of the severe onset, in this patient, the clinical course of CD was mild and responder to conventional therapy.
Ulcerative Colitis and Acute Thrombocytopenia in a Pediatric Patient: A Case Report and Review of the Literature  [PDF]
Bronislava Papadatou, Fiammetta Bracci, Daniela Knafelz, Antonella Diamanti, Maria Sole Basso, Fabio Panetta, Filippo Torroni, Valerio Nobili, Giuliano Torre
Health (Health) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/health.2014.612184
Abstract: We report the case of a 14-year-old boy affected by ulcerative colitis (UC) and acute thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) with simultaneous onset. UC diagnosis was based on symptoms, endoscopy and histology findings. ITP diagnosis was based on the normal bone marrow megakaryocyte count, the presence of platelet associated IgG and the absence of splenomegaly. Medical treatments including high doses of steroids, intravenous immunoglobulins were ineffective on ITP course, while UC course was mild for several months after the onset. When colonic inflammation became untractable not responsive at steroids and immunosuppressive agents, colectomy resolved both pathologies.
Primary Sarcoma of the Specialised Prostatic Stroma: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
Rosanna Zamparese,Francesco Corini,Antonio Braccischi,Antonella D'Angelo,Lucilla Diamanti,Marina Del Vecchio,Willy Giannubilo,Vladimiro Mambelli
Case Reports in Pathology , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/252805
Abstract: Primary sarcoma tumours of the prostate are rare and are classified, according to their histology, as stromal tumours of uncertain malignant potential (STUMP) and stromal prostatic sarcoma (PS; low and high grade). We describe a case of a 71-year-old man that developed progressive urinary obstruction symptoms and was subjected to a transurethral prostatic resection (TURP). Histologically, there is a diffuse proliferation of epithelioid and spindle cells that showed rare atypical mitotic figures. Immunohistochemically, the neoplastic cells express diffusely CD34 and focally progesterone whereas no immunoreactivity was seen for cytocheratin, desmin, S-100, Bcl-2, chromogranin, CD117, and actin smooth muscle. A final diagnosis of low-grade prostatic stromal sarcoma (LG-PS) was made. This is a really rare neoplasm; in the literature, in fact, to our knowledge, only 6 cases are described and all of these were alive and free of disease at followup. Our patient too is free of disease at 15 months from the diagnosis.
Celiac Disease and Overweight in Children: An Update
Antonella Diamanti,Teresa Capriati,Maria Sole Basso,Fabio Panetta,Vincenzo Maria Di Ciommo Laurora,Francesca Bellucci,Fernanda Cristofori,Ruggiero Francavilla
Nutrients , 2014, DOI: 10.3390/nu6010207
Abstract: The clinical presentation of celiac disease in children is very variable and differs with age. The prevalence of atypical presentations of celiac disease has increased over the past 2 decades. Several studies in adults and children with celiac disease indicate that obesity/overweight at disease onset is not unusual. In addition, there is a trend towards the development of overweight/obesity in celiac patients who strictly comply with a gluten-free diet. However, the pathogenesis and clinical implications of the coexistence of classic malabsorption (e.g., celiac disease) and overweight/obesity remain unclear. This review investigated the causes and main clinical factors associated with overweight/obesity at the diagnosis of celiac disease and clarified whether gluten withdrawal affects the current trends of the nutritional status of celiac disease patients.
(Re)Considering American Studies in Greece
Zoe Detsi-Diamanti
European Journal of American Studies , 2006, DOI: 10.4000/ejas.327
Abstract: In writing about American studies in Greece, one is tempted to consider for a moment the fact that the field, ever since it placed itself on the international academic map, has been in a constant process of self-discovery and self-becoming. Its openness, which may be taken as evidence for its vibrant existence and its ability to reconstruct and deconstruct itself, has led to new areas of research, new formulations, new critiques, as well as to an essential paradox : although we currently wit...
The Distribution of an Index of Dissimilarity for Two Samples from a Uniform Population  [PDF]
Giovanni Girone, Antonella Nannavecchia
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/am.2013.47140

In this paper the authors study the sample behavior of the Gini’s index of dissimilarity in the case of two samples of equal size drawn from the same uniform population. The paper present the analytical results obtained for the exact distribution of the index of dissimilarity for sample sizes n 8. This result was obtained by expressing the index of dissimilarity as a linear combination of spacings of the pooled sample. The obtained results allow to achieve the exact expressions of the moments for any sample size and, therefore, to highlight the main features of the sampling distributions of the index of dissimilarity. The present study can enhance inferential statistical aspects about one of the main contributions of Gini.

The Distribution of the Concentration Ratio for Samples from a Uniform Population  [PDF]
Giovanni Girone, Antonella Nannavecchia
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/am.2015.61007
Abstract: In the present paper we derived, with direct method, the exact expressions for the sampling probability density function of the Gini concentration ratio for samples from a uniform population of size n = 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. Moreover, we found some regularities of such distributions valid for any sample size.
Human Mobility Control and Labour Market of Migrants in Sicily the Case Study of the Cara of Mineo  [PDF]
Antonella Elisa Castronovo
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2015.32023
Abstract: This paper analyses human mobility control in Sicily, linking it with immigrants’ employment segregation. The focus is on the Cara of Mineo that, since 2011, has represented one of the most important “laboratory” in order to observe the effects of Italian migration governance. The study is supported by several interviews to stakeholders and to migrant farm hands. The first aim is to show how a place designed to contain the mobility of people [1] can be seen as area where the migration movements are intersected with the economic needs of local context.
Intelligence, Globalization, Complex and Multi-Level Society  [PDF]
Antonella Colonna Vilasi
Open Journal of Political Science (OJPS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojps.2018.81004
Abstract: The information activity is based on the security needs. National Security is a concept that refers to the idea of a Nation not only in purely ethnic terms of nationality but?also?in the wider sense of defense as a center for political, economic, social and cultural imputations. According to a simplistic vision of National Security, typical of an old constitutionalist doctrine, defense from external threats and the maintenance of internal order are of primary importance. In contemporary Nations, international and regional organizations, legal entities under international law and an ever-increasing international structure of international relations made the system unprecedented and complex. The concept of National Security involves all the activities, citizens and tangible and intangible assets, culture and cultural identity.
The Intelligence Cycle  [PDF]
Antonella Colonna Vilasi
Open Journal of Political Science (OJPS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojps.2018.81003
Abstract: Focusing on the Information Cycle, reference is made to the distribution architectures and the pathways that the various Intelligence products (journals, reports, alerts, forecasts) produce to the Administration (Intelligence Cycle). An introduction to any study on the Information loop needs a brief digression to clarify concepts such as data, news, and information. Events mean any event or action that has been established to be true and/or has occurred and whose knowledge is assigned an information value; the information is the unclear cognition of a fact and/or a significant event related to topics of interest; information, in turn, is the product resulting from data following a frame of processing, analysis, interpretation, comparison, reasoned integration and evaluation.
