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## 2019-06-19 2019-06-19 13 2 10.4081/itjm.2019.1150 Physical assaults on doctors: arrival of perilous medicine! <p>Not available</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Shubham Lahan Ashish Goel ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2019-06-18 2019-06-18 13 2 135 136 10.4081/itjm.2019.1087 Considerations of a physician on a lecture on the Trans-human <p>The letter offers a clear presentation on the evolution of the so-called <em>Trans-human</em>, through brief quotes from intellectuals who have highlighted some of its fundamental characteristics and main ideas.
