Oxydative Metabolism in Optic Nerve Myelin: New Perspectives in Hereditary Optic Neuropathies
Silvia Ravera, Martina Bartolucci, Paola Ramoino, Daniela Calzia, Carlo Traverso, Isabella Panfoli*

Myelin from both central and peripheral nervous system was shown to express functional FoF1-ATP synthase and respiratory chain complexes that conduct an aerobic metabolism, to supportthe axonal energy demand. Along this view, it has been proposed that the trophic action of myelin that has been recognized to cause degeneration of chronically demyelinated is a major and not replaceable energetic role.

Bcl-2 Immunoexpression in Rapidly Growing Eyebrow Pilomatrixoma after Blunt Trauma

Yu-Yun Huang, MD, Chieh-Chih Tsai, MD, PhD*, Shu-Ching Kao,MD, Hui-Chuan Kau, MD, MS, Fenq-Lih Lee,MD

Pilomatrixoma is a benign cutaneous neoplasm that arises from matrix cells of hair follicle. It typically presents as a superficial, firm, solitary, slow-growing, painless dermal or subcutaneous mass in the head and neck region, including the eyelid or eyebrow. Rapidly growth pilomatrixoma is rare and have been reported following trauma. Herein, we present one patient with rapidly growing eyebrow pilomatrixoma with strong Bcl-2 immunostaining following trauma, which was not mentioned before.
