#1
Brenda L Quincy, Lori Fauquher
Increasingly, renal cell cancer is diagnosed because of an incidental finding of a renal mass on an imaging study. Incidentally discovered masses are more likely to be small and, if malignant, represent localized renal cell cancer. The imaging features of the tumor and patient characteristics inform the management options, which favor a nephron-sparing approach over radical nephrectomy. Clinical stage at the time of diagnosis has important prognostic implications for the patient. This article reviews the presentation, diagnostic evaluation, and management of an incidentally discovered renal mass...

Paulette Bagnall, Denise Rizzolo
Bacterial vaginosis is a common vaginal infection that causes discharge, odor, and irritation. It can predispose women to sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV. Recurrent bacterial vaginosis may require prolonged treatment to return the vaginal flora to a normal predominately lactobacillidominated environment.

OBJECTIVE: Physician assistants (PAs) have adapted to roles in virtually every practice specialty. One factor that has affected PAs' specialty choices has been the availability of jobs. We describe 2014 job postings for PAs at the national level by practice specialty. METHODS: National data on 2014 job postings for PAs were obtained from a leading labor analytics firm. Each job posting (N = 34,137) was coded with regard to practice specialty and analyzed descriptively...

Inhaled nitrous oxide (N2O) has been used worldwide for over 100 years as labor analgesia but has not gained widespread use in the United States. Nitrous oxide provides a noninvasive option for laboring women. This article outlines its efficacy and safety as an analgesic compared with epidural and IV pain medications.

Heather P Adams, Jennifer Malloy
Placental mesenchymal dysplasia (PMD) is a rare disorder of the placenta characterized by placentomegaly, cystic vesicles, and dilated chorionic blood vessels. Clinically and pathologically, it closely resembles partial molar pregnancy and complete hydatidiform mole with a coexistent healthy fetus, both of which are associated with malignant trophoblastic disease. PMD, however, has no risk of malignant trophoblastic disease and can result in the birth of a normal fetus, highlighting the need for clinician awareness of PMD in order to avoid unnecessary termination of a viable and potentially healthy fetus...

Kamini Patel, Jonathan V McCoy, Patrick M Davis
Thyrotoxic hypokalemic periodic paralysis (THPP) is a rare but potentially serious complication of thyrotoxicosis. The resulting muscle weakness is profound, associated with more severe hypokalemia, yet reversible. However, clinicians must be cautious because patients can develop life-threatening hyperkalemia during treatment. Underlying causes should be investigated as repeated episodes of THPP may occur.

Hansen disease (leprosy) continues to be prevalent in some regions of Africa, Asia, and South America, and each year 100 to 300 cases are reported in the United States, especially in immigrants and patients exposed to armadillos. Treatment depends on patient presentation. Hansen disease remains highly stigmatized, though it is now clear that it is not readily transmitted through casual physical contact.

Shriya Patel, Lawrence Carey
Loss of efficacy of hormonal contraceptives is of particular concern for women who are overweight or obese. Only recently have clinical trials started to include overweight and obese women in their study populations, limiting the data available on which to make the best prescribing decisions for hormonal contraceptives for these patients. Other methods, such as the copper or levonorgestrel-containing intrauterine device, the etonogestrel implant, and depot medroxyprogesterone acetate, are preferred over combined oral contraceptives, the transdermal patch, and the vaginal ring...
