Sarcoid Tattoo Granuloma and Ocular Sarcoidosis: The Great Masquerader

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.405

ABSTRACT

Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disease with both sight and life-threatening sequelae. It can be a diagnostic challenge as there is no definitive test. The IWOS has recommended guidelines to improve diagnostic certainty to improve early detection. The authors present a case of bilateral panuveitis and biopsy proven sarcoid tattoo granuloma. The roles of a multi-disciplinary team and early introduction of steroid-sparing agents are highlighted.

Penile Carcinoma in Northern Trinidad and Tobago

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.303
Pages: 
571–4
Synopsis: 
The incidence of penile carcinoma in Trinidad and Tobago is low and has halved in the past two decades. It stands at 0.6 cases per 100 000 males; the peak age group is 41–50 years and 95% of cases occur between 41 and 80 years. The decreasing incidence may be attributed to better hygiene, a higher rate of circumcision and low human papillomavirus rates in this population.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the current incidence as well as general and ethnic trends of penile carcinoma in northern Trinidad and Tobago.

Methods: A retrospective analysis was conducted on all cases of penile carcinoma presenting in north and east Trinidad, as well as Tobago over an eight-year period.
