There are multiple factors that affect the shear wave speed in the assessment of liver stiffness. In this case report, we present a case of hemochromatosis that has elevated liver stiffness suggestive of significant fibrosis or cirrhosis; however on…

Historically, appendicitis in the elderly is associated with higher morbidity and mortality. Ninety-six patients over 60 years of age with appendicitis treated over a 10-year period were reviewed. Only 20% presented classically with anorexia, fever,…

Thorough investigation of complex cases of acid-base disturbances indudes verification of pH, determination of respiratory and metabolic components, calculation of the anion gap, assessment of the degree of compensation; and analysis of the…

A high index of suspicion is required for early detection of complications, most commonly diverticular abscess and colovesical fistula. Appropriate antibiotic therapy should cover a wide range of potential pathogens.

A rare occurrence of primary adenocarcinoma arising in an interposed colon nearly seven years after the surgery is described. Remarkably, there were no symptoms from a large mass in the transposed bowel. Diagnosis was made fortuitously while…

Objectives: To review the clinical and laboratory findings of 108 adult patients with bacteremic pneumococcal pneumonia admitted to a community hospital and to determine the value of sputum Gram stains and cultures in the diagnosis of pneumococcal…

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: In the last 10 years, otolaryngologists and allergists have become increasingly aware of migraine headaches in their practices. This is partially due to a better understanding of the high incidence of migraine and a realization…

Altered mental status is a common chief compliant among older patients in the emergency department (ED). Acute changes in mental status are more concerning and are usually secondary to delirium, stupor, and coma. Although stupor and coma are easily…

Within the field of elastography, a relatively new approach analyzes the limiting case of shear waves established as a reverberant field. In this framework, it is assumed that a distribution of shear waves exists, oriented across all directions in 3D…

The purpose of this study is to critically investigate the anatomy of the deep posterior compartment of the leg, Specifically, the relationship of the deep posterior compartment to the superficial posterior compartment and their Insertion onto the…

Anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa are eating disorders with distinct clinical presentations. Reduced caloric intake, a hallmark of both disorders, is manifested by self-induced starvation in anorexia and by binge eating and gastrointestinal…

The diagnosis of a skin and soft tissue infection (SSTI) requires careful attention to a patient's history, physical examination, and diagnostic test results. We review for many bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic pathogens that cause SSTIs the …

Objective: To compare the efficacy and safety of azithromycin dihydrate monotherapy with those of a combination of cefuroxime axetil plus erythromycin as empirical therapy for community-acquired pneumonia in hospitalized patients. Methods: Patients…

Basal cell adenocarcinoma of minor salivary glands is a relatively rare slow-growing tumor with an infiltrating growth pattern. The infiltrating growth pattern and likelihood of vascular and perineural involvement distinguishes basal cell…

Diagnosis of a slow-growing mass of the cranium can be challenging. We present a rare clinical report of a 19-year-old woman with a unilateral mass of the frontal bone. Pathological diagnosis was hyperostosis, which is extremely rare in this age…

Actinomycosis, originally classified as a fungus, is now considered a branching bacteria. Although jaw involvement often presents with classic pathognomonic signs, postcranial disease has not been so characterized. Affected bones from individuals…

Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a common and potentially serious illness with significant human and economic costs to society. The recent collaborative statement from the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and the American Thoracic…

This study was conducted to determine whether individual bony lesions are specific for recognizing multiple myeloma and thereby distinguish it from metastatic cancer and leukemia. The lytic skeletal lesions of multiple myeloma are characterized by…

P>Objectives and aims: The primary aim was to determine the frequency of anesthetic-related complications for patients with malignant infantile osteopetrosis (MIOP) before and after hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT). The secondary aims were…

With the recent FDA approval for characterization of focal liver lesions (FLL) in both pediatric and adult patients using Lumason (sulfur hexafluoride microbubbles), increased use of ultrasound contrast for routine clinical use is expected. This…
