Inflammation: Erythema is a term used to describe redness that was probably noticed on endoscopy. Erythema usually is non specific and can mean anything from mild irritation during the procedure to something abnormal like infection or an inflammation. Biopsies and pathology is more accurate in identifying the exact problem. Ileitis is swelling of the small bowel and again erythema does not always mean ileitis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What is a "rare" lymphoid aggregate? And what is its relation when found in a myxoid stroma in the endometrium?
It sounds like you: have had an endometrial/uterine biopsy. Perhaps there was some abnormal bleeding. Myxoid simply means mucous-like; stroma simply means connective, functionally supportive tissue. Finding clumps of lymphoid cells in this uterine supportive tissue has no significance on its own if no other abnormalities are reported. "Rare" just means they only saw a few of them, not that they were unusual. ...Read more

Hi, i had a upper GI endoscopy. They found mucosal nodularity in the fundus. What does this mean? Is it an indication for ulcer? And is it something c
Possibilities...: I understand your concern but, like many things in medicine, a single physical finding taken out of context can suggest nonspecifically a variety of phenomenon. Fundic nodularity may indicate hyperplasia, inflammation, an inflltrative process (like lymphoma), more. Rather than worry needlessly, please wait to hear your biopsy results, then treat objectively. ...Read more
The question is not about me I understand that an acute transformation of overlap myeloproliferative/myelodyplastictiy disorder is the terminal phase of the disorder But what is a blastic transformation of the disorder? Is it the same thing as an ac?
Acute vs blastic?: In the chronic and dysplastic hematologic malignancies that you mention (CMML and MDS), the term "acute" transformation means an evolution to acute leukemia. This is defined as more than 20% "blast" cells microscopically. Therefore acute and blastic transformation are the same thing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
