OBJECTIVE: An aberrant subclavius posticus muscle was found during routine dissection of the left infraclavicular fossa of a 60-year-old male cadaver. PRESENTATION: This aberrant muscle arises antero-medially, from the costoclavicular ligament, runs postero-laterally, over the trunks of the brachial plexus, and postero-lateral has a common insertion with the omohyoid muscle. CONCLUSION: The presence of such an aberrant muscle may cause a dynamic compression of the subclavian artery and brachial plexus...

<br><br>Dear Editor-in-Chief, It is with great interest that we read the article by Samer et al. that published in Medical Principles and Practice in October 2017. Although this research is valuable and the results are interesting, but, the following methodological issues should be considered: Firstly, in the discussion section it is mentioned that this is a retrospective study, however, by studying the method section it turns out that the design of this study is cross-sectional. There is a major difference between these two types of study...

OBJECTIVE: Acute spontaneous bullous urticaria is an extremely rare entity, and there are few reports with blister formation in acute urticaria patients. CLINICAL PRESENTATION AND INTERVENTION: We present a two-year old girl who was admitted for bullous spontaneous acute urticaria; the underlying reason for this was not detected. Nikolsky's sign and Darrier's sign were negative. Lesions were not compatible with erythema multiforme. However, biopsy was not allowed to be performed...

This review aims to provide a brief historical overview of the feto-maternal immunological relationship, which profoundly influences the outcome of pregnancy. The initial question posed in the nineteen fifties by Medawar, was based on the assumption that the maternal immune system recognizes the fetus as an allograft. Indeed, based on the association between HLA-matching and spontaneous miscarriage, it became obvious that immunological recognition of pregnancy is required for a successful gestation. The restricted expression of polymorphic HLA antigens on the trophoblast, together with the presence of non-polymorphic MHC products excludes recognition by both T and NK cells of trophoblast presented antigens, however, T cells, which constitute the majority of decidual T cells are likely candidates...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this report is to describe a case of atrial fibrillation and shock precipitated by deliberate self-poisoning with theophylline. CLINICAL PRESENTATION AND INTERVENTION: An 85-year-old male with severe theophylline intoxication in a suicide attempt was admitted with severe cardiac arrhythmia and shock; despite poor prognosis, he fully recovered gradually after proper diagnosis and treatment. Theophylline is a rather forgotten medication; thus, intoxication is not usually considered among the etiologies of potentially treatable cardiologic emergencies, especially when its use is intentionally concealed...

OBJECTIVE: Craniofacial disharmony in skeletal diseases is strongly associated with sleep-disordered breathing. Our aim was to study sleep respiratory patterns in young children with rare skeletal disorders. DESIGN: This retrospective study included children with achondroplasia, osteogenesis imperfecta and Ellis van Creveld Syndrome. Our subjects underwent an in-laboratory overnight respiratory polygraph between January 2012 and April 2016. All medical records were reviewed and brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging was conducted on patients with achondroplasia, nasopharynx, oropharynx and laryngopharynx spaces...

OBJECTIVE: To present a case of lingual thyroid Hürthle cell carcinoma. CLINICAL PRESENTATION AND INTERVENTION: A 37-year old female presented with dysphagia and recurrent haemorrhage. Histopathology was suggestive of Hürthle cell carcinoma; the tumour was excised by the transglossal approach which provided adequate exposure and helped avoid external scar or mandibular osteoetomy. Histopathology showed tumour-positive right lateral resection margin. This prompted referral to nuclear medicine for radioablation...

OBJECTIVE: This study aims to determine how Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) acquisition techniques and calculation methods affect T2 values of knee cartilage at 1.5 Tesla and to identify sequences that can be used for high-resolution T2 mapping in short scanning times. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study was performed on phantom and twenty-nine patients who underwent MRI of the knee joint at 1.5 Tesla. The protocol includes T2 mapping sequences based on Single Echo Spin Echo (SESE), Multi-Echo Spin Echo (MESE), Fast Spin Echo (FSE) and Turbo Gradient Spin Echo (TGSE)...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the treatment outcome in patients with Ludwig's angina in their early stages who received intravenous antibiotics alone with those who received surgical decompression and intravenous antibiotics. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Individuals with early stage of Ludwig's angina were studied using a retrospective cohort study design from August 1997 to September 2017. Data were collected from case notes and logbooks. Appropriate statistical tests were chosen to analyse the independent and outcome variables...

OBJECTIVE: To create an allergic disease risk factors scale score that would screen for the risk assessment of asthma, allergic rhinitis and atopic dermatitis in children from 3-17 years. METHODS: This case-control study, conducted between December 2015 and April 2016, enrolled 1274 children. The allergic disease risk factors scale was created by combining environmental, exposure to toxics during pregnancy and breastfeeding and parental history of allergic diseases...

BACKGROUND: Patients with autoimmune thyroid diseases (ATD) such as Graves' disease (GD) and Hashimoto thyroiditis (HT) may have non-organ specific autoantibodies such as ANA (antinuclear antibodies) and RF (rheumatoid factor). AIM: To study the prevalence of rheumatic autoantibodies in a group of ATD patients without known rheumatic diseases and to evaluate its association with the patients' epidemiological and treatment profile. To follow positive non-organ specific autoantibody-positive ATD individuals to investigate whether they will develop a rheumatic disorder...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association of high baseline serum levels of metalloproteinases-3 (MMP-3) with structural damage to hand and feet joints, assessed by ultrasonography (US), in patients with early, treatment-naïve rheumatoid arthritis (RA), without initial X-ray-visible erosions, during 24 months follow-up. METHODS: Sixty-three early RA (EULAR/ACR 2010), DMARDs/glucocorticoid naïve patients (mean age 53.4 ± 14.1) with symptom duration ≤ 12 months, had baseline serum levels of MMP-3 tested...

OBJECTIVE: Febrile proteinuria is functional proteinuria and is seen as a transitory phenomenon during acute febrile illness, mainly viral infections. It is a benign phenomenon and clears promptly with resolution of the infection. CLINICAL PRESENTATION AND INTERVENTION: In this report, we present a patient who was thought to have febrile proteinuria. Persistence of significant proteinuria after resolution of the infection prompted biochemical and genetic work-up which lead to the diagnosis of Dent-2 disease...
