PERIPHERAL OSSIFYING FIBROMA IN ELDERLY FEMALE PATIENT: case report INTRODUCTION Peripheral ossifying fibroma is a non-neoplastic proliferative process of multifactorial aetiology. This slow growth lesion is one of the most common inflammatory hyperplastic lesions of the oral cavity (EVERSOLE L.R; SABERS W.R, ROVEIN S, 1972 In: JUNIOR J.C.M; KEIM F.S; KREIBICH M.S, 2008). The pathogenesis of the lesion remains unclear, but is often associated with undifferentiated cells in the periodontal ligament, that when stimulated by irritants, for example, calculus, biofilm, the presence of orthodontic appliance with poor hygiene, crowns destruction caused by Carie cavities, traumatic restorations, as well as masticatory forces and impaction of food;
Most malignant lesions of the parotid are mucoepidermoid carcinoma. Cutaneous malignancies may lead to malignant lymphadenopathy in the parotid especially basal cell carcinoma and melanoma. MRI can be used to image salivary gland masses but can not differentiate the histologic types as all tumors are hypotense to gland on T1WMR image and all of them enhance on postcontrast MR images, but it can differentiate between solid and cystic lesions.  MRI is preferred over CT when there is neural and meningeal involvement. Imaging of malignancies shows invasion of the adjacent structures (nerves, bone, skull base, meninges and adjacent cervical spaces) and capsule rapture in pleomorphic adenoma all of them are better viewed by MRI.
Intestinal lymphangiectasia may be suspected by hypogammaglobulinemia, hypoalbuminemia, lymphopenia and increased alpha-1 antitrypsin excretion in the faeces and can be supported by duodenal biopsy. Endoscopy shows dilated lacteals as white opaque spots, nodular lesions and xanthomatous plaques are also seen. The lesions are often patchy and localized.  However, several biopsies are often needed before lymphangiectasia is demonstrated. Lymphatic impairment due to malformed, hypoplastic lymphatics can be demonstrated by radionuclide lymphoscintigraphy.
Once the diagnosis of chylothorax is made by pleural fluid analysis, investigations should be performed to outline lymphatic vessels, identify the site of chyle leakage and finally to ascertain the cause of chylothorax. Imaging studies such as computerised tomography (CT) scans, lymphangiography and lymphoscintigraphy can be helpful. Lymphangiography implies the direct administration of an iodinated contrast agent into a cannulated lymph vessel. A simultaneous chest radiograph or CT will delineate the lymphatic anatomy. It is widely used in adults, as it is the best study to delineate the lymphatic anatomy and is very useful defining the site of chyle leak or obstruction.
After a few days however, the swelling suddenly vanished (TGWTB). Another sign that Jeannie had FOP was when her mother noticed something. Her mother noticed that she couldn’t open her mouth as wide as her brothers and sisters (TGWTB). This scare caused Jeannie’s mother to take her to several different doctors. When Jeannie was four years old, she was diagnosed with Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva by the Mayo Clinic (TGWTB).
In 1951, at the age of 31 Henrietta Lacks was diagnosed with cervical cancer. Henrietta was under treatment at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, where cells from her malignant tumor were removed. Neither Henrietta nor any of her family members knew about the tissue sample and nor did the Hopkins ever informed them of the situation. Unfortunately after Henrietta’s radiation treatment, her condition continued to worsen and soon she lost her battle to cancer on octomber 4th 1951. Henriettas cells left the Hopkins what they discovered to be known to be the first immortal human cell line.
She started joint pain on the right side of her knee and then the pain migrated to the left side of her body and affecting all the major joints. Her other symptom is vomiting and the mother also stated that her daughter’s body felt warm to touch. From her past medical history, we learned that this patient has had generalized hives 4-5 times per year, and the etiology has not been identified. She also had a bundle branch block 10 years ago. Her ER report
Her only option remaining is palliative care and she has been given 6 months to live and will soon have to be intubated due to breathing difficulties. Kim says it is time, has requested dying with dignity twice and has been viewed as mentally fit. The viewer walks through the plethora of struggles and emotions that Dr. Altman is faced with as she succumbs to a decision, her husband as he accepts his wife’s decision, and Kim as she elects physician-assisted suicide. In this case, and many others worldwide, physician assisted suicide is morally permissible at all ages for anyone with a terminal illness with a prognosis of 6 months. This is supported by act based utilitarianism and the idea of maximizing pleasure and reducing pain and suffering on an individual circumstance.
A mammography tech learned that the hard way in October 2008. According to Louise Dickson on timescolonist.com, Joy McKerr sued the clinic itself and the mammo tech she had, due to outright negligence. The article states that during the exam, she was in extreme pain and asked the tech to stop the procedure. The tech did not listen and continued anyway, causing McKerr to swell and bruise almost instantly, and the injury did not heal for several months. The patient was diagnosed with breast cancer four months later, which she believed to be caused by this issue.
She spent two long weeks in the Neonatal ICU. During that time, I was unable to hold my baby. She was fed through a tube until her stomach could handle formula through a bottle. That was one of the hardest things I have even been through. Thankfully, she recovered swiftly.
Dana Garcia Ripley Honors English 2 20 March 2017 Lack of Justice The book The Immortal life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot tells the story of an African American woman named Henrietta Lacks whose cells made one of the greatest medical contributions ever. Henrietta Lacks died of cervical cancer at the age of 31. Cells were taken from her body without her knowledge. Rebecca L. Skloot is a self-employed science writer who specializes in science and medicine. She had spent 10 years researching about Henrietta.
DOI: 6/21/2014. The patient is a 52-year-old right-handed female technician who sustained a work-related injury to when metal paper holder sprung out and hit her. She did not lose consciousness but was disoriented and confused. Based on the latest medical report dated 02/27/16, the patient reports that after the injury, she had headaches on the right side of the head and had tinnitus almost right away. She developed blurry vision the next day, nausea disruptions to balance and hearing changes on the right side.
The only way to confirm cases is if you are deceased and have an autopsy performed on your brain. As noted, the only way to actually confirm that you or someone suffers from Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy is by the pathological features of your brain. The overall features of your brain contains a great amount of information that will help you identify the disease. On the left side of this image above you can see that this is supposed to be what a normal brain is supposed to look like. With very minimal head injuries or brain trauma sustained.
