About this Journal
Asploro Journal of Biomedical and Clinical Case Reports is an open access, peer-reviewed journal which mainly aims to directly improve global health outcomes and share clinical knowledge using case reports to convey important best practice messages. Each case report published in this journal adds valuable new information to medical knowledge.
Case Reports are the first piece of research writing in the health field and represent the most basic type of study design. They make a contribution to health knowledge and have educational value or highlight the need for a change in clinical practice…..

Abstracting and Indexing
Introduction: Hearing loss causes comprehension difficulties, worsens speech perception and discrimination, and decreases the deaf quality of life.
Objective: To describe the results of variations in impedance measurements (IM) and the advances of hearing categories in cochlear implant (IC) patients.
Method: Qualitative, descriptive, and longitudinal study. Three consanguineous patients implanted and treated in speech therapy with aurioral approach. Telemetry of five-step neural responses was recorded, followed by impedance measurements, sound location tests, simplified Glendonald hearing detection procedure (GASP) tests, Ling sound tests, and recognition of vowels and words. All subjective measures classified the state of hearing categories that ranged 1 (no sound recognition and no oral communication) to 5 (sound localization and oral communication established). The follow-up period was 12 months.
Results: There was an overall increase in impedance measurements in all implanted ears. Training in sound localization, auditory memory, auditory closure, background figure, and temporal ordering skills promoted better speech performance. It was noticed that hearing abilities development was adequate because of restored social hearing and communication.
Conclusion: The variation of Impedance Measures was continuous and progressive and was concomitant and proportional to the performance improvement of hearing categories, ranging from condition 1 to 5 which improved oral communication in these cases.
Fungiform papillae, primarily located on the tip and lateral border, or dorsum surface of the tongue and intertwined with the filiform papillae, are mushroom-shaped epithelial elevations composed of taste buds at the upper surface overlying a core of connective tissue. Pigmented fungiform papillae of the tongue is a benign condition more common in dark-skinned adults and children, is characterized by localized hyperpigmentation which is confined to these structures. We report a case of 26 year-old-woman with pigmented fungiform papillae.
Serous cystadenofibroma of the ovary is a cystic neoplasm containing fibrous component, and lining of high, cylindrical, and ciliated epithelial cells surrounded by clear serous fluid, with smooth or papillary surface and abundant vessels. Serous cystadenofibroma in the present case report was an incidental discovery observed during an abdominal and pelvic cavity review performed in a 39-week elective cesarean section applied to in a 32-year-old patient who presented uneventful pregnancy. The importance of conducting inventories of these cavities during cesarean sections to identify asymptomatic adnexal masses unseen in prenatal ultrasonography is clear.
Background: It was reported that in surveillance colonoscopy (SC), targeted and random biopsies detected similar proportions of neoplasias. However, that study was conducted by experienced endoscopists familiar with colitic cancer. We report two cases of disseminated colitic cancer in patients who had undergone SC.
Case-1: A 69-year-old Japanese man first suffered from ulcerative colitis (UC) in 1979. Annual SCs had been performed since 1998. In 2017, colonoscopy confirmed a cancer in the ascending colon. A laparoscopy-assisted anal-preserving total proctocolectomy was performed in 2018. Histological findings showed the cancer reaching serosa and lymph node metastasis. Peritoneal dissemination occurred 1 year after the surgery. Two years after the first surgery, an ileostomy was created due to bowel obstruction caused by peritoneal dissemination.
Case-2: A 77-year-old Japanese man was diagnosed with UC at another hospital in 2010. SCs were performed annually since 2011. In April 2019, he developed frequent bowel movements, bleeding, and weight loss. Colonoscopy revealed stenosis at the rectum and sigmoid colon. The biopsy revealed adenocarcinoma. Laparoscopy-assisted surgery was performed in July 2019. The yellow ascites was aspirated and submitted for lavage cytology, which revealed signet-ring cell carcinoma. Many white nodules were found in the peritoneum and were diagnosed as peritoneal dissemination. A colostomy was performed. Chemotherapy was administered. Five months have passed since the operation, and the patient is alive.
Conclusion: Chromoendoscopy had not been performed in either patient. It is advisable to use chromoendoscopy when a target biopsy is performed.
We discuss a case of a 58 year old male who presented for left upper extremity steal syndrome including ischemic monomelic neuropathy (IMN) 1.5 months after arteriovenous fistula creation. He presented after three surgical attempts to salvage his fistula with rest pain, complete loss of function with contracture of the 4th and 5th digits, and loss of sensation in the ulnar distribution for more than three weeks. At our institution, he underwent surgical ligation of the distal fistula and creation of a new fistula proximally, resulting in complete resolution of his vascular steal symptoms almost immediately despite the chronicity prior to surgical presentation. Our patient provides a unique perspective regarding dialysis access salvage versus patient quality of life. The patients’ functional status and pain levels should take precedence over salvage of an arteriovenous access site, and early ligation of the access should be completed prior to chronic IMN development. However, if a patient presents late along the IMN course, we recommend strong consideration of access ligation in order to attempt to regain the full neurovascular function of the extremity as we experienced in our patient.
