Here below we report two bizarre but not so rare cases of bone marrow granulomatosis: bone marrow involvement by <em>M. avium</em>-intracellulare and reaction to intravesical administration of bacille of Calmette-Guèrin for non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer; two distinct culprits suggesting the wide range of possible causative factors of this histopathological pattern. In the discussion we provide a brief overview of causes and suggestions for a diagnostic approach.</p> Giacomo Andreani, Alessandro Morotti, Matteo Dragani, Francesca Caciolli, Bruna Crea, Valerio Marci, Ubaldo Familiari, Angelo Guerrasio ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://italjmed.org/index.php/ijm/article/view/itjm.2019.1150 Wed, 19 Jun 2019 17:25:11 +0200 Physical assaults on doctors: arrival of perilous medicine! https://italjmed.org/index.php/ijm/article/view/itjm.2019.1087 <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Shubham Lahan, Ashish Goel ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://italjmed.org/index.php/ijm/article/view/itjm.2019.1087 Tue, 18 Jun 2019 13:04:06 +0200
