Diagnosis and treatment of epididymal tuberculosis: a review of 47 cases
Paul Tulkens –– Diagnostic of epididymal tuberculosis is still difficult, especially at an early stage. The authors call usefully our attention to this problem. Although the study is more a collection of case reports rather than a true epidemiological study (made difficult due to the low frequency of this infection), the appropriate treatment (surgery combined with preoperative and postoperative chemotherapy) is nicely discussed and will be of interests to clinicians are nicely discussed.

The interplay between movement, morphology and dispersal in Tetrahymena ciliates
Claire Paris –– Dispersal, in the broader sense of the term, is the movement away from the birthplace and is a common phenomenon that occurs in most living organisms at some point of their life history. The genotypic basis of movement behavior in unicellular organisms is an important finding
Prognostic factors and survival outcomes according to tumor subtype in patients with breast cancer lung metastases
Walter de Azevedo Jr. –– In this paper, the authors described a study focused on prognosis of breast cancer lung metastases. The manuscript brings analysis of data obtained from 6516 patients with lung metastatic breast cancer. Their results gave new insight into the incidence, prognostic assessment, and risk stratification of breast cancer with lung metastases, enriching the study of the epidemiology of this occurrence.
