Solitary Neurofibroma of the scrotum is an extremely rare benign tumor, particularly when it is not associated with neurofibromatosis type I. To the best of our knowledge, less than 10 cases have been reported in the English literature. Herein, we report a 52-year-old man with the diagnosis of scrotal solitary neurofibroma.

    ABSTRACT: This report details a rare case of diffuse bilateral scrotal neurofibroma complicated by hindlimb paralysis in a rabbit. The animal was evaluated for unusual bilateral scrotal enlargement. After physical examination, ultrasound scan, radiography, computed tomography and laparoscopy, surgical exploration of the scrotum was undertaken. A homogeneous rubbery firm mass was revealed in contact with the subcutaneous tissue expanding to the entire scrotum without involving the testicles. The mass was excised and diagnosed as diffuse scrotal neurofibroma based on histological and immunohistochemical findings (S-100 antibody positive). Over the following month, progressive neurological signs (faecal incontinence, flaccid bladder and hindlimb paralysis) were observed. After excluding central nervous system infection with Encephalitozoon cuniculi, expansion of the neurofibroma to the vertebral canal causing compression of the spinal cord was suspected, although not histopathologically verified.

    ABSTRACT: The use of modern production systems like the Toyota production system led to significant productivity gains in several industries. The methods and tools used in these production systems have mainly been applied to the mass production of goods. This raises the question if any of these methods and tools can also be applied to the engineering of complex systems. For that reason, this paper focuses on a set of criteria comparing a modern production system with the engineering of automation systems or other complex industrial systems. Based on these insights, this paper shows how the concept of an Engineering Community provides basic tool support to realize ideas from modern production systems in the field of engineering projects. This will be illustrated by several examples in order to show how these ideas can be implemented in practice.
