Pseudomyxoma peritonei due to low-grade appendiceal mucinous neoplasm with symptoms of inguinal hernia and uterine prolapse: a case report and review of the literature

Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is an unusual condition in which massive amounts of mucinous ascites in conjunction with mucinous peritoneal and omental implants occur. We herein report a case of PMP due to low-grade appendiceal neoplasm (LAMN) and a literature review to clarify the clinical features of PMP.

Experience-Driven Axon Retraction in the Pharmacologically Inactivated Visual Cortex Does Not Require Synaptic Transmission

In the mammalian visual system, altered visual experiences induce plastic adaptation of visual cortical responses and guide rearrangements of afferent axons from the lateral geniculate nucleus. Previous studies using visual deprivation...
