It was understood that kyphosis was studied in addition to the other deformities in the papers related to the etiology of kyphosis with some exceptional cases. Definition Kyphosis is a forward rounding of the back. Some rounding is normal, but the term "kyphosis" usually refers to an exaggerated rounding of the back. While kyphosis can occur at any age, it's most common in older women. Age-related kyphosis often occurs after osteoporosis weakens spinal
Management Since the etiology was unknown the treatment is empirical.The patient was reassured as to the benign nature of the process. Heavy doses of vitamins have been used, but in general all types of treatment have been unsuccessful. A 10 -year study of patients with geographic tongue treated in a variety of ways concluded that treatment did not influence either the lesions or the subjective complaints of the patients 9.
His abdomen, respiratory system and cardiovascular system were normal. There was no focal neurological deficit on central nervous system examination. All laboratory tests were normal. Cervical computed tomography (CT) revealed bony ankylosis from C2 to C7. And there was a suspected fracture on C3 (Fig.
The cervix is one of the least common sites in genitourinary tract.We report a case of Cervical Rhabdomyosarcoma who was misdiagnosed as Vaginal RMS and was started on chemotherapy. We had to do an emergency excision of the mass,when she developed excessive bleeding per vaginum. Keywords Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcomas,Cervical Rhabdomyosarcomas, Background Rhabdomyosarcomas are malignant skeletal muscle tumors and account for about 50% of soft tissue sarcomas in children. The Intergroup Rhabdomyosarcoma Study Group divided it into three major histologic subtypes: Embryonal(ERMS), alveolar, and undifferentiated. The most common sites include head and neck(35%),extremities, trunk, retroperitoneum.
The length of postpartum depression varies though, based on which type you have and the severity of it. The postpartum blues is a “mild and transient mood disturbance” that begins during the first week following childbirth, and “lasts between a few hours and a few days”, while postpartum psychosis “characterizes women who exhibit psychotic symptoms following childbirth such as confused thinking, delusions, hallucinations, and disorganized behavior” (Salkind, 1012). Because postpartum depression has the potential to last for a very long time, it may bring other side effects along with it. Along with the typical effects such as depression, anxiety, feeling like an inadequate mother, etc., long term postpartum depression could lead to serious issues such as psychiatric issues like hallucinations and suicide (Harris,
Pre-eclampsia is one of the most common cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. It affects around 5-8% of all pregnancies. When superimposed with convulsions it is termed as eclampsia. Other high-risk factors are multiple pregnancy, hydramnios, and molar pregnancy. It is estimated that around 1400 women dye from pregnancy-related causes
Three differential diagnoses for scrotal pain Scrotal pain is also referred to as testicle pain or testicular pain and it occurs when pain is felt in or around one or both testicles. Epididymitis: Inflammation of the Epididymis Epididymitis is an inflammation of the epididymis, a curved structure at the back of the testicle in which sperm matures and is stored (Uphold & Graham, 2013). When the pain occurs as an acute condition, the symptoms can last up to six weeks (Uphold & Graham, 2013). This condition is mostly the cause of acute testicular pain in post-pubertal pain and usually occurs in those that have a history of sexual activity. Approximately half of those who suffer from this condition develop fevers; however, nausea and vomiting are not common (Uphold & Graham, 2013).
In chronic charcot foot, changes in radiography are divided into two main types, hypertrophic and atrophic. Hypertrophic joints are found mostly in the small joints of the foot, characterized by joint dislocation, subluxation, bone fractures, calcification of soft tissues and sclerosis. Bone fractures characterizes the hypertrophic changes. In the upper tip, atrophic type is more common and characterized by bone resorption. In one study, radiographic bony cortical disruption with direct spread from infected ulcer or cellulitis aided in the diagnosis of osteomyelitis.
The symptoms of this woman were, language problems, memory loss and sometimes unpredictable behavior. After she died, Dr. Alzheimer found abnormal clumps and tangled bundles of fibers in the brain of this woman (Whitehouse,2000). In addition, these tangles that are in the brain are considered some of the main problems when we talk about Alzheimer’s disease. Another extremely important problem is the loss of connection between neurons in the brain. Neurons are essential,
Cardiovascular disease is due to the increase of developing diseases of the heart and blood vessels. Hearing loss is due to the gradual loss of nerve function. One-third of girls with Turner syndrome can increase the chance in urinary tract infections and hypertension dealing with kidney problems. Immune disorders result in low production of hormones important for controlling heart rate, growth and metabolism. Girls with TS are more than likely to suffer from crowded and poor teeth because of the shape of the mouth and palate.
