The alignment of third molars has largely been overlooked by orthodontists. Since difficulties arise during their eruption, a plethora of surgical procedures is advocated for their management, including prophylactic extraction. This case series describes the use of midfacial development in 4 patients and illustrates successful patterns of third molar eruption.
Hepatic epithelioid angiomyolipomas are uncommon mesenchymal neoplasms. They are difficult to diagnose by imaging, especially when the fatty component is scant or absent. The gold standard for the diagnosis is histologic examination coupled with an immunohistochemical study. Positive HMB-45 immunostaining of the myoid cells is a major diagnostic feature.
In blunt abdominal trauma, lesions of the mesentery are often underdiagnosed, they represent the third most injured organ, with increasing morbidity and mortality. Mesenteric hematoma can be managed conservatively in the event that there is no associated active mesenteric hemorrhage however, must be clinically distinguished from spontaneous mesenteric intraperitoneal hemorrhage.
Helminths are an important cause of infection in poorly developed countries. The Majority spread with soil to skin contact. In unusual patients presenting below 1 year, treatment can be challenging. The disease can be self-limiting, treatment reduces progression to serious disease. Here, we present a three-month-old with Cutaneous Larva Migrans.
The distinction between tuberculosis and sarcoidosis presents sometimes a clinical challenge. Their sequential occurrence in the same patient is uncommon. We present the case of a 42-year-old female with a proven diagnosis of tuberculous lymphadenitis who has developed successively nasal tuberculosis and pulmonary and liver sarcoidosis.
Tachycardia and atrial fibrillation are cardiovascular symptoms of Graves’ hyperthyroidism， if left untreated and further deterioration can result in heart failure and liver dysfunction, we describe a female patient to present the continuum of the pathophysiology development, to highlight the hemodynamic variation is dominant contributing factor of Graves’ hyperthyroidism complication
Covid-19 infection may have extrapulmunary manifestations such as blood hypercoagulability that may causes thrombosis in both arterial and venous system.Deep dorsal penile vein thrombosis is very rare and the most common cause is coagulation disorders.It causes penile pain especially during erection and it is diagnosed by ultrasound.
Linear IgA/IgG bullous dermatosis (LAGBD) is a rare, autoimmune blistering skin disease. We report a case of LAGBD in a 70-year-old woman. All common treatments were discontinued due to side effects or lack of treatment response. The patient was successfully treated with omalizumab which cleared her lesions after three months.
We report a 56-year-old woman with multiple cardiovascular risk factors who initially present with chest discomfort. She underwent successful primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) on left anterior descending and right coronary artery . Few hours later and after the hemodynamic deterioration of patient,
Thymomas are tumours frequently associated with autoinmune manifestations or immunodeficiencies like Good syndrome. In rare cases, pure white cells aplasia (PWCA) has been described in association with thymomas. PWCA is characterized by agranulocytosis of autoinmune background primary refractory to granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF). It is necessary to use inmunosupressor drugs.
Objective The aim of this project was to identify gaps and research waste in the dissemination of Cochrane gynaecology evidence in the Cochrane database of systematic reviews (CDSR). Design A research article Setting The Cochrane Gynaecology and Fertility (CGF) Group’s specialised register of random controlled trials (RCTs). Sample Trials looking at benign gynaecological conditions, contained in the CGF specialised register, published between the years 2010-2011. Methods Gynaecology trials from the CGF specialised register were matched, by the specific gynaecological issue and treatment, to existing Cochrane reviews. Unmatched trials were categorised to develop and prioritise new review topics. Main outcome measures Proportions Results 740 trials, published from 2010 to 2011, were exported from the specialised register, after removing duplicates and out of scope trials, 185 of these trials were found to be already included in Cochrane reviews. 422 trials were found to be unused, however 192 (26%) of these could be included in an existing CGF SR if it were updated. 230 trials (32%) were not matched to any review title and from these 21 new review titles were developed. The topic with the largest number of associated ‘unused’ trials, was ‘Plant and herbal extracts for symptoms of menopause’. Conclusions This project was used to consider unused trials, prioritise new review topics and identify those reviews that need to be updated, thereby identifying the gaps in evidence for women with gynaecological problems.
