Diabetic retinopathy can progress to this more severe type, known as proliferative diabetic retinopathy.
Cecal duplication as a lead-point of neonatal intussusception is extremely rare. To our knowledge, very few cases of cecal duplication as the cause of intussusception in neonates were reported in medical literature to date. Case report: A term male neonate, with a birth weight of 3650g, was referred to our neonatal intensive care unit from a peripheral hospital for the

Heartburn that occurs frequently over several months may indicate that you have a more serious condition, known as gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD).
According to information from a study conducted through the University of Stavanger in Norway, 25 percent of recently diagnosed Parkinson 's disease patients suffer a fall within the first year. This percentage goes up to 70 percent for those who have lived with the disease for sixteen years. Those who have fallen before are at greater risk of falling again. Fortunately, there are several things people with Parkinson 's disease can do to reduce their risk of falling. One of the most important first steps is to remove trip hazards around your home.
Stalk thickness >2.6 mm is suggestive of pathological infiltration. It shows intense post gadolinium enhancement due to lack of blood brain barrier. It should taper smoothly from largest portion at tuber cinereum to smallest portion at insertion into the neurohypophysis. Abrupt change in size should raise suspicion of a mass The normal pituitary volume The normal volume of the gland is age related . The height of the pituitary gland varies as follows : 4.5 +/- 2 at <6 weeks gestation to 4.5+/- 0.6 mm at 5-10 years 5 +/-2 in boys 10-20 years of age 8+/-2 in girls 10-20 years of age Volume of the pituitary gland, including the posterior pituitary ranges from 174+/- 118 cmm at 6 weeks to 2 years 184 to 214 +/- 145 cmm at 2 – 5 years 226 to 277 cmm +/- 188 at 5-10 years Pituitary Dysfunction Diabetes Insipidus This occurs due to dysfunction of the paraventricular or supraoptic nuclei of the hypothalamus.
Children born with thalassemia major are normal at birth, but develop severe anemia during the first year of life. Other symptoms can include: Bone deformities in the face, fatigue, growth failure, shortness of breath and yellow skin (jaundice).Severe thalassemia can cause early death (between ages 20 & 30 years)
New red spots appear every 5 to 7 days. The second phase is when the bumps form blisters. The third stage is when it forms crust and scabs. It usually takes about 10 days for the blisters to crust over. Most people get about 250 to 500 bumps from the virus.
Worldwide, it is estimated that one boy in every 5,000 will be born with haemophilia A and one boy in every 30,000 will be born with haemophilia B. There is no cure for haemophilia. However, with treatment a person with the condition can usually enjoy a good quality of life. In recent decades genetically engineered clotting factor medications have been developed to prevent and treat prolonged bleeding. These medications are given as an injection, the timing of which depends on how severe the condition is.
The bulls-eye rash is around five centimeters in diameter and will have a bright red border. This is accompanied by flu like symptoms that may or may not include chills, fever, myalgia, fatigue and headache. If treatment if not obtained it may take three to four weeks for symptoms and the rash to subsidize, but if antibiotics are administered then rash and symptoms will go away with days. Stage two Lyme disease is present if antibiotics are not administered and will be present within four to ten weeks of the tick bite. In this time some of the manifestations may be joint pain, memory loss, poor motor coordination, and meningitis.
This Neural tube defect is not as common, but it is one of the most severe cases. Each year, about 1,000 babies are affected. Anencephaly can occur when the top portion of the spinal cord doesn’t close all the way. That baby that is born with this will have little to no brain matter. The baby may be missing some of its skull, and will have birth defects of the head and face.
Research found that people who use tanning machine before the age of 35 have an 87 percent chance of developing melanoma (par.18). Most melanoma cells make melanin, so the tumors are usually brown or black. Not every melanoma makes melanin so it can appear pink, tan, or even white (American cancer society, par.10). Melanoma form in other parts of the body such as the eyeball, mouth, private area, and but area. There is slight chance that it may never happen (par.13).
What are the symptoms and signs of cystic fibrosis? Cystic fibrosis causes protean manifestations, but the most common include lung and gastrointestinal symptoms.

If Timmy was punched hard enough, he can have fractures on the cartilage structure of the throat, since the cartilage is flexible and not as strong as the bones. If damage is inflicted, by strong hit for example, on the larynx, it begins to swell. If it swells too much, the flow of air can blocked and you start to suffocate. How would this affect his respiratory system? Timmy’s cartilage plates around the larynx are probably severely damaged and this can compromise the airways and let the air to escape into his neck and chest.
