We present a case of neutrophilic dermatosis of dorsal hands (NDDH), with lesions on the dorsal part of the hands with pustular features and histologic picture of vasculitis.This case highlights the notion that low dose oral steroid can offer a useful first therapeutic option for NDDH. Interstingly, in this case, a few additional lesions were located on the legs, making it different from some previously described cases of NDDH. As with other authors, we believe that this recently described neutrophilic dermatosis is a localized and acral variant of SS...

BACKGROUND: Fee splitting is a process whereby a physician refers a patient to another physician or a healthcare facility and receives a portion of the charge in return. This survey was conducted to study general practitioners' (GPs) attitudes toward fee splitting as well as the prevalence, causes, and consequences of this process. METHODS: This is a cross-sectional study on 223 general practitioners in 2013. Concerning the causes and consequences of fee splitting, an unpublished qualitative study was conducted by interviewing a number of GPs and specialists and the questionnaire options were the results of the information obtained from this study...

The aim of our study was to evaluate the association between some of these risk factors and MS severity in a population sample of Iranian patients. METHODS: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 660 patients with MS. In addition to demographic variables, many potential risk factors were recorded...

BACKGROUND: We aimed to examine the relationship between high levels of cystatin C, retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4) and cardiovascular risk score [determined by Framingham Risk Score (FRS)] in postmenopausal women. METHODS: A total of apparently healthy 129 postmenopausal women (mean age 57.1 ± 4.6 years) were included. Serum cystatin C, RBP4, glucose, lipid parameters, creatinine, uric acid and high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) were determined. Anthropometric parameters and blood pressure were also obtained...

This study aimed to report the rate of dementia at the national level in Iran. METHODS: The National Elderly Health Survey (NEHS) was a cross-sectional study with multistage cluster random sampling on people aged ≥ 60 years in Iran. Dementia was diagnosed by trained general practitioners using Brief Cognitive Assessment Tool (BCAT)...

Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare tumors, but the incidence is increasing with new diagnostics. A 37-year-old man was admitted to our hospital for an incidental 17-mm nodule in the tail of the pancreas. PET/CT shows indeterminate mass in the pancreatic tail with enhanced uptake of 68-Ga-dotatate. NET was suspected and laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy was performed. Pathologic examination revealed an accessory spleen with a heterotopic location. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first intrapancreatic accessory spleen (IPAS) case in which the positive 68-Ga-dotatate uptake reported in the literature...

Primary angiosarcoma of the breast is a rare malignant tumor. Diagnostic breast imaging includes mammography and ultrasound, which are usually nonspecific. A 42-year-old woman with angiosarcoma of the breast is presented. Physical findings showed a hard exophytic mass in the upper part of the left breast, with skin discoloration overlaying the mass. Mammography revealed a high density well defined mass in the left breast, without any micro-calcification and speculation. On ultrasound examination, a hypoechoic mass with a well-defined margin and heterogenous echogenicity was detected...

BACKGROUND: The need for mental health care among children and adolescents in Iran, as in other low and middle income countries (LAMIC) remains mostly unmet. In this paper, we sought to provide an overview of the extent of unmet need and mental health services in Iran. We also aimed to propose approaches to address this gap. METHOD: We reviewed the published epidemiologic studies of child and adolescent mental and behavioral health problems in Iran. We also examined the current status of child mental health services and the gaps between current needs and available services based on published literature that included papers published in scientific journals, as well as governmental and other administrative reports...
