Diabetic retinopathy is prevalent among American adults with diabetes. Tight control of glycemic levels, BP, and lipids can help reduce patients' risk of developing diabetic retinopathy, which can lead to severe visual loss and blindness if not treated. Teleophthalmology done in primary care offices can increase the number of patients who are screened, saving patients' vision through early detection and treatment of diabetic retinopathy.

Gregory Czajka, Halley Kreminski
Hydrocephalus can be the result of an infection, obstruction, impaired reabsorption of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), or an abnormal increase in CSF. Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunting is the gold standard treatment for hydrocephalus despite its high rate of complications, including catheter obstruction and infection. Spontaneous cecal perforation by a VP shunt is extremely rare. Headache or subtle change in personality may indicate a VP shunt infection. Early recognition of the infection is critical for optimal patient outcomes...

Daniel M Provencher, Andrew R Jauregui
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic lung disease characterized by progressive and irreversible fibrosis of lung parenchyma that reduces lung function. This rare, incurable disease often is mistaken for an inflammatory condition. IPF typically manifests in older men and is associated with a history of smoking. Disease progression is rapid, with a 5-year survival rate of 20%. Treatment options include lung transplantation and medical therapies to reduce the steady decline in lung function. This article reviews the epidemiology, pathophysiology, presentation, diagnosis, and management of IPF...

With the incidence of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) increasing over recent decades, wide variability in disease presentation, and a median survival of only 2 to 4 years from disease onset, timely referral is key for patients with suspected ALS. This article discusses primary care providers' roles in recognizing ALS and managing symptoms in patients whose travel to specialists can become restricted in the later stages of the disease.
