The Editor,

Sir,

I have recently read two interesting articles, by Apostolovic et al and Yap et al about infections by Burkholderia cepacia (B cepacia) in chronic patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis. For the first time in literature, Apostolovic et al described the case study of repeated peritonitis by B cepacia affecting a patient on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis.

A 10-Year Unsuspected Lumbar Schwannoma: A Case Report

Issue: 
Pages: 
232–4

ABSTRACT

One case of unsuspected schwannoma is reported in a 69-year old man with chronic lumbosacral pain. The tumour had been mistaken for a lumbar lipoma for a decade. The definitive diagnosis was established after surgery based on the characteristic histopathological findings. The purpose of this report is to alert primary care physicians to peripheral sheath nerve tumours, in addition to highlight the role of pain and image features in the suspicion of tumours with long-term evolution.
