BACKGROUND: Suicide is frequently encountered in patients suffering from major depressive disorder (MDD). Since only a third of treated depressed patients are able to achieve remission, in the last few years, new theories have been proposed to better understand the mechanism of this illness. Our paper analyzes the interrelation between cortisol as a marker of neuroendocrine theory as a response to stress, and hippocampal volume subfields in depression as a marker of neurogenesis and neuroplasticity theory...

BACKGROUND: Renal aspergillosis is a rare infection that usually occurs in persons with a predisposition for this condition. Its differential diagnosis includes primary and metastatic renal malignancies, pyelonephritis and secondary abscess formation, granulomatous disorders, and renal infarction. We aim to stress the role of multimodality imaging and percutaneous biopsy in the diagnosis of this condition. CASE REPORT: We present diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) and positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) findings in addition to conventional imaging modalities in a 55-year-old man with secondary renal aspergilloma...

BACKGROUND: Solitary fibrous tumors (SFT) arising from the larynx are extremely rare; most occur in the supraglottic larynx. CASE REPORT: Herein, we detail a new case of a subglottic SFT presenting as a well-encapsulated soft-tissue tumor with hoarseness. It showed isoattenuation, similar to the adjacent muscle on pre-contrast computed tomography (CT) images, and strong, heterogeneous enhancement following contrast material administration, which may reflect hypervascularity...

BACKGROUND: Foreign bodies in the upper aerodigestive tract are frequently seen in otolaryngological practice, but migration of an ingested foreign body to the neck is a very rare condition. CASE REPORT: We present a 66-year-old woman admitted to our outpatient department with a painful neck mass. She had a history of emergency department admission 4 months prior with odynophagia after eating chicken meal. A physical examination revealed a painful and hyperemic mass on the left neck...

BACKGROUND: Angiolipomas are benign tumors usually seen in patients during their 2(nd) and 3(rd) decades. The subcutaneous region of the trunk, neck and extremities are the places where they generally settle. There is only one case report on angiolipoma in the knee joint that was resected by arthroscopic procedure in the English literature. CASE REPORT: We present a case of a giant-size multilobular non-infiltrating angiolipoma, extending outside of the right knee joint and causing lateral patellar dislocation in a thirteen-year-old boy...

BACKGROUND: In recent days, synthetic cannabinoid derivatives have become life threatening for young people. Here, we want to share a case of acute eosinophilic pneumonia triggered by inhalation of synthetic cannabinoid, new side effects of which are being detected day by day. CASE REPORT: A 21-year-old male, who had no history of pulmonary diseases, was admitted to the clinic with shortness of breath. His oxygen saturation was measured as 85-86% in room air. Common irregular ground-glass opacities were observed in thorax radiology...

BACKGROUND: Amitriptyline is an important cause of mortality due to its cardiovascular toxicity. AIMS: To investigate the changes in levels of cardiac S100b protein on amitriptyline-induced cardiotoxicity and also to examine the correlation between amitriptyline-induced cardiotoxic effects and cardiac S100b protein in an isolated rat heart model. STUDY DESIGN: Animal experimentation, isolated heart model. METHODS: After a stabilization period, isolated hearts were randomized to two groups (n=5 and n=7)...

BACKGROUND: Across the globe, upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs) are the most prevalent cause of morbidity in childhood. AIMS: The aim of our study is to analyze the incidence and etiology of bacterial URTIs in Bulgarian children, as well as the increasing antimicrobial resistance to the most common etiologic agents over a period of 17 years. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study. METHODS: The study material comprised the data from 4768 patients (aged 1-16 years) with URTI during the period from 1998-2014...

BACKGROUND: Presepsin is an inflammatory marker released from monocytes and macrophages as an acute reaction to microbial infection. We hypothesized that it may be useful in pregnancies with preterm premature rupture of the membranes (PPROM) for early diagnosis of subclinical chorioamnionitis. AIMS: To determine whether the plasma presepsin level has any diagnostic or prognostic value for subclinical chorioamnionitis in pregnancies complicated with PPROM. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective cohort study...

BACKGROUND: Standard expected years of life lost (SEYLL) is a measure that is used to evaluate losses due to premature deaths. AIMS: The present study provides an analysis of premature mortality in Turkey for the years 2001 and 2008 and supplies evidence for making policies and setting health agendas over the long term. STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. METHODS: This study calculated SEYLL by gender, age group and causes of death in Turkey in 2014...

BACKGROUND: In women with endometrial hyperplasia, there is a risk for co-existent endometrial cancer when patients are subjected to immediate surgical treatment. AIMS: The aim of this study was to investigate the frequency of endometrial cancer and the accuracy of frozen section analysis at the time of hysterectomy among patients with endometrial hyperplasia, to reveal whether or not a preoperative diagnosis of endometrial hyperplasia necessitates frozen section consultation...

BACKGROUND: There is sporadic data about the occurrence of spinal meningeal cysts in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). We suggest that there is a relationship with the frequency and size of spinal meningeal cysts and headache, intracranial aneurysms, and cerebrospinal fluid leakage in patients with ADPKD. AIM: To investigate the relationship with spinal meningeal cyst, cerebrospinal fluid leakage, and headache in patients with ADPKD...

BACKGROUND: Skin flaps are commonly used in soft-tissue reconstruction; however, necrosis can be a frequent complication. Several systemic and local agents have been used in attempts to improve skin flap survival, but none that can prevent flap necrosis have been identified. AIMS: This study aims to determine whether the use of systemic Rosmarinus officinalis (R. officinalis) extract can prevent flap necrosis and improve skin flap recovery. STUDY DESIGN: Animal experimentation...

BACKGROUND: Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is an important factor leading to early adult osteoarthritis. Chondrocyte apoptosis has been proven to be an important factor causing osteoarthritis. AIMS: The current study aims to explore whether a rabbit model of developmental dysplasia of the hip through cast immobilization in the legs results in chondrocyte apoptosis. STUDY DESIGN: Animal experimentation. METHODS: Thirty-two New Zealand white rabbits were divided in three groups with cast plaster-induced dislocation at 2, 4 and 6 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Myeloid differentiation primary response gene 88 (MyD 88) is an intracellular adapter protein that mediates the early immune response to pathogens. Toll-like receptors (except TLR-3) induce the immune response through a MyD 88-dependent signal pathway. AIMS: We aimed to investigate the MyD 88 polymorphisms that play important roles in the immune response in septic children and to evaluate whether or not they were risk factors in the development of sepsis...
