INTRODUCTION: Magnetic resonance imaging is established as a recognizable tool in the diagnosis and monitoring of multiple sclerosis patients. In the present, among multiple sclerosis centers, there are different magnetic resonance imaging sequences and protocols used to study multiple sclerosis that may hamper the optimal use of magnetic resonance imaging in multiple sclerosis. In this context, the Group of Studies of Multiple Sclerosis and the Portuguese Society of Neuroradiology, after a joint discussion, appointed a committee of experts to create recommendations adapted to the national reality on the use of magnetic resonance imaging in multiple sclerosis...

Although foreign body ingestion is a common occurrence, perforation and penetration of the gastrointestinal tract is unusual and the development of a hepatic abscess is even more rare. The authors describe two cases of fish bone perforation of the gastrointestinal tract with hepatic perforation and abscess formation, from distinctive age groups and varying presentation, although both developed septic shock. The lack of history of ingestion of foreign bodies, non-specificity of both clinical presentation and complementary examinations all play a role in delaying the diagnosis and therefore in the prognosis itself...

Peritoneal loose bodies are usually diagnosed incidentally. Only a few cases are documented in the literature. The pathophysiology of this condition is not fully known and its origin may possibly be related to the twisting and separation of epiploic appendages. The authors describe the case of a patient with a spherical solid lesion 6 cm in diameter, identified incidentally in the pelvic cavity of a 64 year old man. The patient underwent laparotomy and a free ovoid shaped white body was identified. Histological examination described a calcified and encapsulated mass with a steato-necrosis core...

INTRODUCTION: Classical aphasia evaluation scales are too long to use in the context of acute stroke or as a monitoring tool. The Aphasia Rapid Test is a 26-point scale developed as a bedside assessment to rate aphasia severity in acute stroke patients in less than 3 minutes. We aimed to adapt and validate this scale for European Portuguese. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We evaluated 56 acute stroke patients in the first and in the seventh days post-stroke. In the seventh day, patients were evaluated by two independent raters, to evaluate inter-rater agreement...

INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study is to identify the number of anaesthesiologists working in Portugal and to monitor the national activity of this medical specialty by comparing it with a similar Census performed in 2014. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Observational cross-sectional study. Data related to the month of May 2017 was collected from Anaesthesiology departments of 53 Portuguese public institutions from a total of 86 hospitals. RESULTS: The Census registered 615 127 surgical procedures (3...

INTRODUCTION: Recent studies worldwide reveal a significant prevalence of extragenital infections by Neisseria gonorrhoeae among men who have sex with men. We aimed to analyse the frequency and characteristics of extragenital gonococcal infections diagnosed in men who have sex with men in a walk-in Sexually Transmitted Infection clinic in Lisbon, Portugal. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional, retrospective study of the anorectal and/or oropharyngeal Neisseria gonorrhoeae infections in men who have sex with men, diagnosed in our Sexually Transmitted Infection clinic between January 2014 and December 2016...

Non-infectious uveitis is a heterogeneous collection of inflammatory eye diseases and is one of the most important causes of blindness among active adults in developed countries. Inflammation control is crucial in the prevention of ocular structural and functional damage. Regarding acute inflammatory control, corticosteroids are the mainstay of treatment. Several types of intra-ocular corticosteroids have been used with the aim of enhanced efficacy compared to their topical or peri-ocular administration, while minimizing its adverse effects associated with the systemic administration...

Cotyledonoid dissecting leiomyoma, also known as Sternberg tumor, is a rare benign uterine tumor with a gross and radiological appearance that may suggest the possibility of a malignancy. We report a case of a thirty-eight-year-old female patient who presented with menorrhagia and abdominal pain one month after delivery by cesarean section. An ultrasound scan showed a heterogeneous pelvic mass, near the isthmic region, with 25 x 24 x 23 mm without vascularization so the possibility of placenta accreta could not be excluded...
