REVIEW
Dragos Cinteza, Iulia Persinaru, Bogdan Mircea Maciuceanu Zarnescu, Dan Ionescu, Ioan Lascar
During the last decades significant progress was made in the understanding of the physiopathology of the peripheral nerve regeneration. Although the evolution of therapy is not as spectacular, a series of new treatment solutions were developed. The gold standard in therapy remains the use of autografts. We present the current concepts and therapeutic options available.

BACKGROUND: Best's disease is a hereditary form of macular dystrophy that starts in childhood and progresses until visual symptoms occur. In evolution it can be complicated with choroidal neovascularization, condition very rare in children. We report an important visual improvement in a 8-year-old caucasian girl after successful treatment with one intravitreal bevacizumab injection. There are few cases reported in literature (1-7), and the patient presented here have important particularities: one of the youngest children ever-mentioned with this complication, the third-member of her family with this disease and the first patient who didn't receive a second intravitreal bevacizumab at six weeks after first treatment, even though BCVA was lower than expected...

Wandering spleen is an unusual surgical condition that is generally asymptomatic, but the long and mobile vascular pedicle of the spleen predisposes it to torsion. Various imaging modalities can be used to diagnose a wandering spleen. We present the case of a 23 year-old female patient with abdominal pain, in whom torsion of the spleen was diagnosed preoperatively, using color Doppler sonography, as a whirlpool appearance.

Dystrophic calcinosis cutis was commonly described in long-term dermatomyositis or systemic sclerosis, being rarely reported in other connective tissue diseases. We report the case of a 65-years old woman with an only 5-years history of systemic lupus erythematosus, who presents with multiple, impressive subcutaneous calcified masses and biological normal serum calcium and phosphate levels.

Magnesite (MgCO3) is a mineral which is theoretically composed of 52.2% CO2, 47.8% MgO, and very scarce amounts of Fe2O3 with a degree of hardness varying between 3.4-4.5 kgf, and specific gravity of 2.9-3.1 g/cm(3). Its color varies between white, yellow or gray, and brown. Magnesite is used in agriculture, and drug industry, brick, iron-steel, paper, and sugar industries. Our case was a 30-year-old male whose dead was reportedly associated with exposure to 2700°C molten magnesite in the melting potansiyel of the plant where he was working as a metal worker...

We report the case of a 28-year-old female with progressive diaphyseal dysplasia, who presented with history of a similar neuromuscular condition. Clinical, radiological and molecular data confirmed Camurati-Engelmann Disease (CED). This is the first Romanian family who was diagnosed with CED.

Primary breast lymphoma (PBL) is a rare entity accounting for less than 1% of all breast malignancies. Diagnostic criteria for primary Hodgkin's lymphoma of the breast are: the presence of sufficient tissue for diagnosis, close interaction between mammary tissue and lymphomatous infiltrate and no evidence or prior diagnosis of widespread lymphoma. Our case illustrates an unusual presentation of Hodgkin's lymphoma of the breast: clinically as inflammatory breast cancer and core biopsy as granulomatous mastitis, the final diagnosis requiring surgical biopsy...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this non-interventional, investigator driven study was to assess the functionality of patients with major depression under treatment with agomelatine in real life clinical practice. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study was multicenter, non-interventional and evaluated the functionality of the adult patients with a DSM-IV diagnosis of MDD (single or recurrent episode and no treatment in the previous 6 months). It took place in Romania and it was a 10-weeks study...

BACKGROUND: The concept of cardio metabolic risk and risk stratification for cardiovascular events are two distinct entities related with different stages of vascular development of the atherogenic process. In our analytical transversal study, we analyzed non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol behavior and the correlations with traditional cardiovascular risk factors in a subpopulation with coronary pain and indication of angio coronarography. We tried to build a mathematical model in order to predict the non-HDLc, allowing additional cardiovascular risk reassesment...

Mihaela Tevet, Razvan Ionescu, Cornel Dragan, Anca Roxana Lupu
BACKGROUND: A number of studies showed that the JAK2 V617F mutation increases the thrombotic risk in patients with myeloproliferative disorders (MPN) while others did not reveal this correlation, and it is unknown whether inherited thrombophilia is an additive risk factor in mutated subjects. Our aim was to clarify the contribution of JAK2 V617F to a hypercoagulable state, as well as its interaction with other thrombophilic factors in patients with thrombosis and myeloproliferative disorders...

OBJECTIVES: Previous studies of bone tissue in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) using dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) concentrated on regions of interest that were used to diagnose osteoporosis. This study aimed to compare the whole body bone tissue (wbBT) of RA patients with healthy subjects and to identify the RA variables which significantly predict wbBT. METHODS: The study was cross-sectionally designed to include postmenopausal RA patients and age-matched healthy female controls...

BACKGROUND: Mucinous carcinoma (also known as colloid carcinoma) is a particular type of breast cancer characterized by the presence of extracellular mucin and is linked with a more favorable prognosis than invasive breast carcinoma of no special type. Mucinous carcinoma of the breast is an uncommon form of breast tumor, often presenting as a lobulated, moderately well circumscribed mass on mammography, sonography, and MRI imaging. It accounts for 1 to 7% of all breast cancers. Pure mucinous breast carcinomas are rare and account for about 2% of all primary breast carcinomas...

BACKGROUND: Acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD) is a common cause of hospitalization and mortality. Recent studies have shown the usefulness of eosinopenia in predicting the outcomes of patients admitted to the intensive care unit. This study examined the association of eosinopenia with the outcomes of patients with AECOPD. METHODS: This is a prospective study. Patients with AECOPD were divided into two cohorts: patients with eosinopenia and those without eosinopenia...

INTRODUCTION: Negative-pressure wound therapy is a therapeutic technique that uses a vacuum dressing in order to promote healing in acute or chronic wounds. The continued vacuum draws out fluid from the wound and increases blood flow to the area. The aim of this study was to establish the effectiveness of negative pressure therapy increasing this way the chances of rehabilitation after knee prosthesis infections. MATERIAL AND METHOD: 11 patients with septic complications after total knee joint replacement were involved into this study, from the Department of Orthopaedic and Traumatology of Bucharest Emergency University Hospital...

REVIEW
Adina Roceanu, Florina Antochi, Ovidiu Bajenaru
Chronic migraine (CM) is defined as headache occurring more than fifteen days/month for at least three consecutive months, with headache having the clinical features of migraine without aura for at least eight days per month. Recently, new treatment options became available in chronic migraine patients. Topiramate is effective in chronic migraine, in the presence or absence of medication overuse, and/or other migraine prophylaxis. Efficacy of onabotulinumtoxin A as a preventive treatment of chronic migraine has been shown in the PREEMPT studies...

Toluene is a commonly used volatile organic chemical in industry and is the most often chosen illicit substance among volatile substance abusers. Studies involving healthy volunteers suggest that ethanol consumption inhibits toluene metabolism, thus increasing its blood levels. In this study, a lethal case of combined ethanol consumption and toluene inhalation has been reported. Our case was a 30-year-old male who had used volatile substance for 15 years. The autopsy revealed no abnormal findings. Toxicological analysis revealed alcohol and toluene in the blood and the cause of death was considered as toxicity due to acute combined intake of alcohol and toluene...
