A 47-year-old woman presented to her family physician with complaints of persistent fatigue of three months duration. She had menorrhagia, irregular menses and mild dysmenorrhea but denied dyspnea, weight loss, fevers, night sweats, melena stool, overt rectal bleeding, hematuria, hematemesis and abdominal pain. She did not smoke and drank socially.
Relationship between BMI, PSA and Histopathological Tumor Grade in a Caucasian Population Affected by Prostate Cancer
The aim of this work is to show the relationship between obesity and aggressivenes of Prostate Cancer. We conducted a retrospective study of 132 men affected by Prostate Cancer underwent radical prostatectomy. Gleason score was abstracted by biopsy specimens and by post-operatory specimens. We evaluated PSA level and Body Mass Index (BMI).
Angiokeratoma in Fabry Disease: Diagnostic but not Treatment Effectiveness Marker
Introduction: Fabry disease (FD) is a rare metabolic disorder that leads to severe morbidity and premature mortality as a result of cardiac, renal or cerebrovascular complications. Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) has been shown to provide clinically important benefits, and treatment is likely to alter the natural history of FD.
Vesical Calculi with Utero Cervico Vaginal Prolapse
Vesical calculi are not commonly seen with utero vaginal prolapse. Calculi may be missed unless ultrasonography or X-ray is done. If not diagnosed problems can occur during surgery and post operatively. If vesical calculi are removed vaginally during anterior colporrhaphy, it may lead to fistula formation. Suprapubic cystotomy and removal of calculi done during vaginal surgery for genital prolapse seems better option. We present 3 cases which were managed within a span of 6 months with satisfactory results.
Primary Amenorrhea: A Müllerian Agenesis Case Report
A case of müllerian agenesis, Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) Syndrome, in a 16 year-old female with primary amenorrhea is reported. This patient exhibited normal female external physical characteristics with a shallow, blind vaginal pouch upon examination. Serologic hormone evaluation as well as karyotype determination revealed normal pubertal female range hormones and 46, XX, respectively. MRKH Syndrome has a prevalence of 1 in 4000 to 10000 females. Treatment is multi-factorial and should include nonsurgical vaginal dilator therapy, surgical neovaginal options, as well as psychosocial support and counseling on future reproductive options.
Saving Faces Changing Lives the Art of Maxillofacial Prosthodontics Case Series Comparing Two Different Materials
Surgical reconstruction of large facial defects is not possible at times due to extensive loss of tissues that cannot be corrected by surgery alone. In these cases, prosthetic restoration of lost facial tissues can be done using maxillofacial prostheses. Introduction of new material which gives life-like appearance to such prosthetic restorations e.g. silicone and poly ether rubbers and use of implants to retain these prostheses have given a new dimension to rehabilitation of such patients. However, in certain clinical scenarios, conventional acrylic resin prostheses are still the recommended options. This report discuss clinical performance of two cases of prosthetic rehabilitation of the nasal component of the face secondary to resection due to malignancy and due to infections using external device retained maxillofacial prosthesis.
