Chorea associated with non-ketotic hyperglycaemia is an uncommon dyskinetic syndrome in uncontrolled or undiagnosed diabetes. Various theories are postulated but the underlying mechanism remains poorly understood. We report a 70-year-old man suffering from sudden choreodystonic movements and undiagnosed hyperglycemia. It always marks the importance of screening for diabetes as a cause of acute onset of hyperkinetic disorders.
Launching Global Journal of Medical and Clinical Case Reports
During the recent past, the biomedical publishing field has witnessed a decline in the publishing of the case reports by many journals. This trend is not particularly helpful for the medical community at large. The main reason for the above trend is the low citation value of the case reports, which reduces the overall impact factor of the journals.
Obstructed hemivagina with ipsilateral renal agenesis (OHVIRA Syndrome) is a rare congenital anomaly. It mostly presents with severe dysmenorrhea and a palpable mass due to unilateral hematocolpos. Sometime it presents in unusual way with prolonged vaginal bleeding and profuse vaginal discharge. We report a case of an 18-year-old married female with OHVIRA syndrome presenting late with symptoms of recurrent pyocolpos following dilatation and evacuation for midtrimester miscarriage that was diagnosed on the basis of MRI and managed by vaginal septotomy.
The Effectiveness of a Home Exercise Program for a Young Athlete with Schmorl's Nodes: A Case Report
Adolescent soccer players are often prone to low back pain and one source of low back pain incurred by adolescents is Schmorl's nodes, or end-plate disc herniations. Patients with low back pain due to Schmorl's nodes are often given home exercise programs to manage their symptoms and increase their core stability. The purpose of this case report is to describe the treatment and outcome for a young athlete with Schmorl's nodes causing low back pain and lower extremity weakness.
Aggressive Angiomyxoma of the Cervix: A Unique Entity
Aggressive angiomyxoma is a mesenchymal tumour which presents rarely; usually in women in reproductive age group, as a mass in the pelvic tissue. Only exceptionally, has it been seen to originate from the uterus and cervix.
Symptomatic adjacent segment disease after anterior cervical decompression and fusion has been well described, but there have been few reports of symptomatic adjacent segment disease after cervical laminoplasty.
Additional volumetric modulated arc therapy to vertebral metastases abutting the previously irradiated site
Lung cancer frequently causes metastases to the spine, especially to the thoracic vertebrae, which sometimes compress the spinal cord and induce irreversible palsy. Many patients suffering from metastatic spinal tumors need to undergo repetitive radiotherapy. In such situations, intensity-modulated radiotherapy including volumetric modulated arc therapy can reduce the dose delivered to the spinal cord at the junction.
