Diagnosis: Diagnosis of acute Charcot joint or neuropathy is quite difficult, clinical suspicion is highly important. Infection is the primary differential diagnosis, most prominently either cellulitis or osteomyelitis. Imaging and examination are used to find out if there is infection; if not, then the diagnosis would most likely be Charcot joint. Clinical image such as a warm, edematous, erythematous joint with intact pulses in the absence of infection is Charcot foot until proven otherwise. If edema and erythema disappear with 5-10 minutes of leg rising in the supine patient, it is suggestive of Neuropathy.
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 aneurysm that Loeys and Marfan contains is Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm. Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm is an abnormal bulging or ballooning of the portion of the aorta the passes through the chest. The most common cause is atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries(AHA) Risk factors may include, aging, genetic conditions such as Marfan and Loeys-Dietz Syndrome, Inflammation of the aorta, injury from falls or other trauma, and or, Syphilis. A patient with Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm may not have or experience any symptoms until it begins to leak blood into the nearby tissue or expand. There are many symptoms such as hoarseness, swallowing problems, swelling in neck, chest or upper back pains, and many more to include.
Introduction The term kyphosis describes the spinal curve that results in an abnormally rounded back. Kyphosis can happen at any age. 7459 papers were found when the word ‘kyphosis’ was searched on ‘PubMed’ search engine. The majority of these papers studied kyphosis were related with scoliosis. 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.
This serious compression of nerves, blood vessels, and muscles can cause tissue damage and problems with blood flow. This is due to direct or indirect serious muscle injury, such as a building collapse. This can lead to kidney failure. While someone with extreme trauma has a high chance of developing crush syndrome, there are people who have a genetic predisposition to develop rhabdo. Early treatment of rhabdomyolysis can result in complete recovery.
AD is associated with severe itching and eczematous lesions that are reoccurring (Weidinger & Novak, 2016). Roughly one fifth of populations in developed countries are affected by AD (Weidinger & Novak, 2016). Lesions in AD can appear anywhere on the body (Weidinger & Novak, 2016). AD occurs due to an imbalance between T-helper-2 response and IgE responses to allergens, which become exaggerated (Weidinger & Novak, 2016). Patients with AD are at risk for skin infections due cracking in the skin from the dryness and
Non- paralytic polio has many symptoms that can last for a couple of days or weeks. Next there is the symptoms of non-paralytic polio are fever, meningitis, sore throat, vomiting, headache, tiredness, not normal reflexes, difficulty swallowing, back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain, and muscle tenderness. . Paralytic polio which leads to paralysis has more severe system than the other 2 kinds. People with paralytic polio first get the symptoms of non-paralytic polio then they get the systems of paralytic polio.
Aneurysms are when a weakened area in the arterial wall begins to expand or dilate. When the artery bursts, tissues can get damaged because the oxygenated blood doesn’t get to them and there can be massive internal bleeding that may lead to death. Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), is excessive buildup of fluid in the lungs or organs due to inadequate pumping in the heart. The fluid leads to swelling that clog the organs. Mechanical malfunctions of the heart is when there is a lack of oxygen to the myocardium that leads to the inability of the heart to pump or contract in an area.
In present case patient`s age was 30 years and gave past history of caesarean section. 445 cases of abdominal wall endometriosis were reviewed by horton et al and observed that 57% and 11% cases showed endometriosis in the scars of caesarean section and hysterectomy respectively.  Pathan et al and Blanco et al also observed that scar endometriosis was more common in caesarean scar than hysterectomy scar. [7,8,] The lump at scar site, pain, fluctuation in size, bleeding and cyclical nature of symptoms during menstruation are the main clinical presentations of scar endometriosis. [3-10] The cyclical nature of symptoms is pathognomonic however may not be seen in all cases.
HE ALSO NOTED THE PRESENCE OF FECERS AND ___________AT THE TIME. HIS PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN ORDERED AN ABDOMINAL ULTRASOUND THAT REVEALED THE PRESENCE OF MULTIPLE LIVER LESIONS.

Patients normally have extremely low blood pressure which results in confusion. (Braumen, 2012, p. 569) Gas gangrene causes intense pain, swelling around the injury, fever with pail skin that will turn gray and end up being dark purple and red. A foul smelling drainage will come from the tissues along with crepitation, the crackly sound documented earlier, and tachycardia. (Braumen, 2012, p. 563) I am diagnosing the patient with Gas gangrene due to the ability for the C. perfringens to have been introduced to the man’s dead tissue from his hip replacement surgery 3 years ago, along with the gas found in his leg most likely causing the
Your heart may develop differently because of anatomical problems such as problems in your lungs, abdomen, or chest that can cause them to shift differently. You may have more problems with other vital organs. There is no symptoms of Dextrocardia except when you do and x-ray or MRI of the chest that shows the position. People with isolated dextrocardia may have increased lung infections, sinus infection, or pneumonia. You may also have breathing difficulties, blue lips or skin, and fatigue.
Most people are diagnosed before age 30, but the disease can occur in people in their 60 's, 70 's, or even later in life. Children with the disease may experience decreased growth or delayed sexual development. Diagnosis : A specialist called a gastroenterologist may perform a colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy to obtain bowel tissue for analysis. Blood tests, including blood counts .Stool samples to rule out infections as the cause of diarrhea. Special X-rays of both the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract may be ordered as well to confirm the location of the inflammation.
In this case, chronic respiratory tract infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa especially when the infection occurs in both either bronchiectasis and cystic fibrosis. These are one of the most difficult infections that are very hard to control. These serious complications requires intensive care hospitalisation or sometimes it can be fatal. This is because it is well known that patients with either infections, often develop acute exacerbations with viral or bacterial superinfection. Exacerbations means worsening of COPD symptoms such as shortness of breath, quantity and colour of phlegm that usually typically lasts for several days.
Pneumothorax is the presence of air in the pleural space. This happens because of the wound in surface area of the lung and the air move from the lung to pleural cavity and causing collapsed. The collapsed due to the VQ mismatch which is called shunt. Pneumothorax is divided into tension pneumothorax and non-tension pneumothorax. Tension pneumothorax is a very serious condition that can develop with any pneumothorax.
