Hispathology The pathological characteristic or features of Angiocentric Glioma are quite similar to other types of brain tumors such as astrocytomas and ependymomas. Yet, their occurrences are rare in cases and this make accurate diagnosis difficult. In general, Angiocentric Glioma is demonstrating an angiocentric pattern and it composed of diffusely infiltrating, monomorphic, bipolar spindle cells which is arranged in around blood vessels in concentric sleeves and pseudorosettes. Plus, the immunohistochemical staining result for this tumor is typically positive mostly for glial fibrillary acidic protein. CASE STUDY PATIENT DEMOGRAPHIC’S
Because many injury victims are young, more years of life are lost in males below the age of 65 from trauma than from cardiac and cerebrovascular disease, or from cancer, in the United States, Japan, and several European countries.14, 15 In the civilian population, the leading causes of TBI are falls (35.2%), motor vehicle crashes (17.3%), blunt impact (16.5%), and assaults (10%). Falls preferentially account for TBI at extremes of age, namely 65 years. Motor vehicle collisions (MVC) are the predominant cause of TBI in teens and young adults. Penetrating TBI is far less common than blunt (closed head) injury but is associated with worse prognosis.16 Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of death and disability among persons in the United States. Each year, an estimated 1.5 million Americans sustain a TBI.
A RARE CASE: AN ADVANCED STAGE HEPATOCELLULAR CARCİNOMA PATİENT PRESENTED WİTH MULTİPLE SPLENİC METASTASES SUMMARY: Hepatocellular carcinoma is the most common primary liver tumor and it is one of the most common cause of deaths in patients with cirhosis. İt’s histopathologic diagnosis is difficult because biopsy usually couldn’t perform due to risc of bleeding. Clinicians especially diagnose it with radiologic and clinical parameters of patient. Splenic metastases are rarely conditions. But when its present we should make an examination for finding primary tumor.
Keywords: Odontogenic cysts, Odontogenic cyst fluid, Total protein content, Albumin, Prealbumin. Introduction The odontogenic cystic lesions include inflammatory cysts like radicular cyst, developmental cysts like dentigerous cysts and benign tumors like keratocystic odontogenic tumor which was previously called odontogenic keratocyst. Clinical and radiologic indices are often inadequate to discriminate reliably among these
Most brain tumors in children are primary tumors Secondary Brain Tumor begins in another part of the body and then spread to the brain. These tumors are more common than primary brain tumors and are named by the location in which they originated. Treatment for secondary brain tumors depends on where the cancer started and the extent of the disease. Symptoms Some people may have symptoms that suggest there is a brain tumor, others have no obvious symptoms. Usually, patients experience long-term headaches (usually worse in the morning), vision changes or visual disturbances, fits/seizures/convulsions, difficulty thinking and speaking or finding words, personality changes, tingling or stiffness in one side of the body, problems balancing or walking, nausea, and/or
Class I is the minimal mesangial lupus nephritis and for patients who are classified under this usually are in remission. The worst class, Class VI (Advanced sclerosis lupus nephritis) is embodied by a gradual progressive kidney dysfunction. This complication is the one most scientists use for research as this affects the majority of Lupus patients. Other complications could include organs such as lungs, brain, intestines, and
In an article by Alzheimer’s Association it mentions that many experts who study this type like to call it “Vascular Cognitive Impairment” because it better explains the idea that your vascular thinking skills can change and it can either be small or serve. Also, in this article it mentions that Vascular Dementia is account for 10 percent of cases and that is remains underdiagnosed even though it is considered common. B. Symptoms i. With this type of Dementia, the symptoms can be very different due to how badly the blood vessel are damaged after having the stroke.
Introduction: Intussusception is a common gastrointestinal emergency in the pediatric population. This illness is a conversion in which a portion of the intestine telescopes into another adjacent distal segment of the intestine and causes bowel and ileocolic obstruction. Intussusception is considered a frequent cause of abdominal pain in pediatric patients. It is well described in infants, with an incidence of 0.1 to 0.4 % nonetheless it is less well-established in neonates.1, 2 In fewer than 10% of the patients, a surgical lead point can be determined as a plausible etiology. Cecal duplication as a lead-point of neonatal intussusception is extremely rare.
70% of CP cases have spastic cerebral palsy which is the most common type and is caused by damage to the brain’s motor cortex. Spastic cerebral palsy can affect either one side of the body, commonly known as spastic hemiplegia, or both sides of the body. Spastic diplegia causes stiffness mostly in the legs, the arms may be affected, but not as severely. (Spastic Cerebral Palsy.., n.d, p.1) Both of these types involves stiff movements that are exaggerated, caused by increased muscle tone. It causes difficulty preforming tasks such as getting dressed, walking and handling objects.
People that suffer from head trauma like Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) have long term consequences but how does this affect their life and what are people suggesting to do about it? ALS and CTE are two forms of diseases to the brain that causes severe symptoms such as muscle weakness, memory loss, shortness of breath, and confusion. ALS is a rare disease with fewer than 20,000 cases per year found in the U.S. This type of disease affects nerve cells in the brain and in the spinal cord. CTE is some what similar to ALS but this other disease is commonly found in athletes with a history of repetitive brain trauma.
In my research, I’ve found that there happen to be more pros than cons to the act. With there being a lengthy list of them, I’ve dissected the list to two vital pros. One of those pros is that The Affordable Care Act helps to prevent illness among the youth in America through many law revisions. The Affordable Act allows youth to remain under their parent 's’ health insurance until the age of 26. Because of the Affordable Care Act, the percentage of uninsured youths fell from 48% in 2010 to 21% in 2012 and continues to drop to this day.
Methadone withdrawal is far more painful and burdensome than other forms of opiate withdrawal and can last up to 5 or 6 weeks. Past heroin users describe the horrors of heroin addiction withdrawal as being far less painful and difficult than methadone
Failing mental health usually declines until the individual has dementia, and other complications such as heart disease and pneumonia. People with the adult-onset form of this disease usually live to between fifteen to twenty years after the symptoms and signs have begun, due to physical injuries such as falling reducing their life expectancy. Another form, which is less common, of Huntington’s disease is known as the juvenile version. This form of the disease begins in childhood or during the adolescent years. It also affects bodily movements, mental abilities, and
Brain Contusion In the following essay I will be explaining what a brain contusion is, along with the causes, signs and symptoms, and prognosis. A brain contusion is a bruise of the brain tissue. Just like a bruise that happens on other parts of the body, a brain contusion is caused by a blood vessel leak. Since they involve structural brain damage, contusions are more serious than concussions (Brain and Spinal Cord. Org., n.d.) The cause of a brain contusion is often caused by an impact to the head, like: car accident, a fall, or a sports- related accident.
