How advances in screening, diagnosis, and treatment affect patient care. ABSTRACT: Lysosomal storage disorders (LSDs) are a group of inherited metabolic conditions, the overall incidence of which is estimated to range from one in 5,000 to one in 7,000 live births. Gaucher disease, the most common LSD, is of autosomal recessive inheritance. It results from a deficiency of acid β-glucocerebrosidase and can affect the spleen, liver, bone, bone marrow, and central nervous system.

Evidence-based strategies for nurses. ABSTRACT: Lyme disease is recognized as the most common vector-borne disease in the United States. Surveillance data indicate both increasing numbers of Lyme disease cases and geographic expansion of areas where the causative spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi, can be found. With prompt diagnosis and appropriate treatment in the acute stage, most patients will recover fully. Without treatment, however, the infecting pathogen remains within the body, often producing long-term complications, including musculoskeletal, neurologic, and cardiovascular effects...

Editor's note: From its first issue in 1900 through to the present day, AJN has unparalleled archives detailing nurses' work and lives over more than a century. These articles not only chronicle nursing's growth as a profession within the context of the events of the day, but they also reveal prevailing societal attitudes about women, health care, and human rights. Today's nursing school curricula rarely include nursing's history, but it's a history worth knowing. To this end, From the AJN Archives highlights articles selected to fit today's topics and times...
