The undead have a significant role in mythology, religion, folklore, and literature. In the 1800s, the word zombie was used to describe reanimated corpses in the Caribbean who often worked on plantations doing long, arduous field work. The movie White Zombie was released in 1932 and exploited this folklore, but it ignored the fact that zombies represent one outcome in Vodou religious beliefs regarding death and the migration of spirits following death. The interest in zombies eventually led to sociological and medical investigations into zombification...

Primary health care provided by an integrated treatment team (e.g., physician, nurse, behavioral health specialist) is becoming increasingly common. This article provides background on integrated care, offers a description of the breadth of behavioral health, and notes institutions such as the Veterans Health Administration in which behavioral health is utilized. We also propose that behavioral health contributes to quality health care and is part of best practices, even as it is provided in a practical and cost-effective way within a medical center primary care setting...

Fading from the vernacular, the Latin phrase vulnus sclopetarium is a quaint, mystifying, and fascinating term that is translated as gunshot wound . There is a fulminating paucity of published information regarding the meaning of this term and the etymology. Trauma surgeons, military surgeons, and scholars of the medical aspects of the civil war may be familiar with the term. Vulnus is easily deciphered from ancient Latin as wound , whereas the origin of sclopetarium proves more difficult to discern. No guns were present in ancient Rome because guns were not invented until around the 13th century; hence, no Latin word for them existed...

Vitamin C deficiency may be common in third-world countries due to malnutrition, but it is currently rare in the USA. Initially, nonspecific symptoms like exhaustion and depression may make this disease difficult to diagnose until classical dermatological manifestations appear. Diagnosis mainly relies on clinical presentation, dietary history to identify risk factors, and dramatic recession of symptoms and signs following vitamin C therapy. Human beings cannot synthesize vitamin C and hence need 90% of vitamin C intake from fruits and vegetables...

Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disease most frequently affecting the lungs, lymph nodes, and eyes. Skin involvement occurs in approximately 25% to 35% of cases, with the scalp uncommonly affected. Abnormal calcium metabolism is associated with sarcoidosis and other granulomatous disorders and most commonly presents as hypercalciuria (40%-60%) and, less frequently, hypercalcemia (10%-20%). Symptomatic hypercalcemia is unusual, presenting in <5% of sarcoidosis patients, and rarely results in kidney damage...

The incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is growing rapidly in the United States. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis are being increasingly recognized as known risk factors for the development of HCC. However, this risk seems to be associated with their progression to cirrhosis. This case demonstrates an unusual initial presentation of HCC masquerading as liver abscesses in a previously healthy woman with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease without cirrhosis. Our patient's clinical presentation was suspicious for an infectious etiology due to her ongoing fever in the setting of possible zoonotic transmission, because she had just acquired two unvaccinated kittens...

Andrew Leiker, Gaurav Khatri, Jeffrey Meyer
There are differing definitions regarding what portion of the large intestine should be considered "rectum" as opposed to "colon." The transition from intra- to extraperitoneal rectum results in potentially disparate patterns of spread for rectal cancer dependent on tumor location relative to the peritoneal reflection. Here we report the case of a 50-year-old woman with a mid to upper rectal adenocarcinoma who presented with a synchronous biopsy-proven tumor implant in the peritoneal cavity...

Gorlin syndrome (GS) is a rare hereditary multisystem disorder caused by mutations in PTCH1, PTCH2 , or SUFU . It is characterized by multiple anomalies and an increased risk of developing various tumors. Basal cell carcinoma is most common, and medulloblastoma (MB) is especially frequent in patients with SUFU mutations. MB treatment often includes radiation therapy in patients older than 3 years; however, such treatment is very toxic to patients with GS. Most reported cases of MB in patients with GS present after GS is diagnosed...

Bone marrow is one of the most common sites of metastasis from breast cancer. Micrometastases to the bone marrow usually evade the systemic therapies used for the treatment of cancer and eventually lead to relapse later in the course of the illness. We report here a unique case of parallel progression of these bone marrow metastases in a patient with breast cancer who had a relapse a few years after treatment of her primary breast cancer, and she presented with diffuse marrow involvement and pulmonary hypertension without any definitive metastases elsewhere...

Carcinosarcoma is a rare subtype of pancreatic neoplasm including both carcinomatous and sarcomatous components. Fewer than 30 cases have been reported to the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program database. Given such rarity, definitive treatment guidelines are not well defined. We report a case of pancreatic carcinosarcoma diagnosed in our institution, review tumor clinicopathological characteristics, and describe our medical and surgical management strategy.

A 22-year-old man with spontaneous coronary artery dissection wanted to assess the feasibility of returning to competitive cycling. He was referred to the cardiac rehabilitation (CR) program at Baylor Hamilton Heart and Vascular Hospital where staff designed a high-intensity, sport-specific training program that simulated the movements and forces associated with his goal activity. The program was symptom limited and enabled the patient to train earlier and at a higher intensity than is typically allowed in conventional CR programs...
