Q. is the disease state dominant or recessive? Explain. A. polydactyly is a dominant but rare disease, it’s caused by a dominant allele of a gene. It can also be passed down if one of the parents have the disorder. Q. Differentiate between recessive and dominant disorder?
Lower lumbar spine is more prone to forminal stenosis as the diameter of the dorsal root ganglion is larger than that of the foramen. Among the Asians, cervical stenosis is more common. This is due to the ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament. The longitudinal Framingham heart study recorded degenerative slip disc syndrome in about 1% of men and 1.5% female above the age group of 54. Swedish study revealed 5 of 100,000 residents developed spinal stenosis with the canal diameter 11mm or
These factors include high recovery rates and internal and external demands. Studies have shown that high recovery rates are genetically linked. If a parent of a child who stuttered recovers from stuttering, it is likely that the child will as well. Yairi and Ambrose propose a high recovery rate of 85% in children (Yairi & Ambrose, 2005). Few cases of stuttering result in perpetuation or continuation through adulthood, as expressed through high recovery rates.
According to Chaney et al. (2016), cutaneous eyelid melanoma accounts for less than 1% of eyelid malignancies and an estimated 1% of all cutaneous melanomas. Cutaneous eyelid melanomas develop from atopic proliferation of melanocytes and commonly affect the lower eyelid (Harish et al., 2013). This malignancy usually occurs in female patients older than 50. The diagnosis of cutaneous eyelid melanoma is confirmed histologically.
Patients are medically stable, no intravenous ' (IVs) or other acute medical problems. As soon as a patient is stabilized, he/she is moved along the continuum of care to outpatient services. (6) Methods Used to Assess Needs: All patients admitted to inpatient psychiatric services receive a nursing, physician, and social work assessment. Nurse Practitioner assessment is based on the medical needs of the patient and works in collaboration with the patient to provide assessment and reassessment and contribute to the interdisciplinary treatment plan. All disciplines participate in establishing living wills and “do not resuscitate” orders.
[5, 6, 13, 14] Although it can occur at any age, significant predilection is in second to third decade of life more commonly in male patients. The above patient was reported in the 4th decade of life which is relatively rare age of occurrence.  Keratocystic odontogenic tumour usually tends to enlarge without significant expansion.  However this case showed significant buccal and lingual cortical expansion, which is a rare finding. Other features are swelling, pain, discharge and paresthesia of lip.
In mild cases, treatment is may be unnecessary. In moderate to severe cases, treatment may include behavioral (habit-reversal) and cognitive therapies. Multimodal therapy might be a more suitable approach for some individuals, which includes combining behavioral therapy with pharmacotherapy such as neuroleptic-antipsychotic agents (haloperidol, pimozide) or a2-adrenergic drugs (clonidine, guanfacine). Because Tourette’s is a “tic” disorder, medications should be used cautiously due to the increased risk of tardive dyskinesia (TD), a medication induced disorder in which tics worsen or may become permanent. Botulinum toxin (used mostly for complex motor tics), or in the most severe cases, deep-brain stimulation, are also available treatment
The genetic markers may vary in length across individual patients and chromosomes, depending on the no. of markers. The relative copy no. of each allele is determined by calculating the ration of the peak heights or area under the peaks detected for each
Temporal lobe epilepsy is known to being resistant to medication, which is why current research is investigating how G- proteins can become activated by the mu opioid receptor selective peptide (DAMGO) and nociception (Temp Lobe G). Another aspect examined is the binding to mu and nociception (NOP) receptors and adenylyl cyclase (AC) in the neocortex, which is the region of the brain associated with temporal lobe epilepsy (Temp). By comparing the levels of [3H]DAMGO binding and stimulation, it was concluded that epileptics with temporal lobe seizure were found to have changes in the mu opioid and NOP receptor binding and, also, the downstream receptors were found to have alterations in their signal transduction mechanisms
Rett’s Syndrome Kelsey Leroux Child Development CYC 101 Lenore Simbulan October 14, 2016 Rett’s Syndrome Rett’s syndrome is defined by the Ontario Rett’s Syndrome Association (ORSA) as “a neurodevelopmental condition characterized by the loss of the spoken language and hand use, coupled with the development of distinctive hand stereotypies… It is usually caused by a mutation of the MECP2 gene on the x chromosome” (2016). Rett’s syndrome is considered by medical experts as a rare genetic neurological and developmental disorder that affects the way the brain develops causing a progressive inability to use muscles for speech, and eye and body movements. Most babies seem to develop normally until about six to eighteen months old. Rett’s
There are approximately 350 million individuals living with DM worldwide. In the United States, the rate of T2DM has increased in individuals of AA descent with the prevalence rate escalating in the past 30 years and has quadrupled. AAs above 20 years of age are 1.7 times more likely to be diagnosed with DM than the Caucasians. They accounted for 10.8% of all individual with diabetes (CDC, 2015). A comparison of rates of diagnosis of diabetes mellitus by ethnicity and race disclosed that in 2010 the AAs diagnosed for diabetes were 13.2% of 29.1 million Americans (ADA, 2014).

Jebera is a male. Males have a 17.5% lifetime prevalence rate for mood disorders like depression. Whereas, females have a far higher rate with a 24.9% lifetime prevalence rate for mood disorders. This is almost a 10% difference. Further highlighting the significance of a male developing a mood disorder is substance abuse prevalence statistics.
