BACKGROUND: Cerebral venous air embolism (CVAE) is a severe clinical condition related to unfavoured outcome in patients with neurological impairment. CVAE may occur secondary to arterial or venous interventions. A rare mechanism of CVAE is retrograde embolism that is characterized by gas flow in a direction opposite to that of the normal blood flow. CASE REPORT: A 69-year-old female was admitted to our hospital with shortness of breath and abdominal pain. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) revealed intramural gas in the bowel and free gas in the mesenteric veins and portal vein...

BACKGROUND: Clinically amyopathic dermatomyositis (CADM) is a distinct subgroup of dermatomyositis characterized by unique dermatologic manifestations without muscle involvement. CADM is frequently associated with interstitial lung disease (ILD), which usually has a rapidly progressive, fatal clinical course. Although CADM-related ILD (CADM-ILD) is well-described, data on the histopathology of CADM-ILD are limited. Organizing pneumonia and pulmonary vasculitis have rarely been reported...

"The Methods of Clinical Laboratory" was the first comprehensive Romanian book in the medical laboratory field, having utility in clinical practice. It was written by Prof. Ioan Manta (1900-1979) and Alexandru Ciplea (1912-1988), both from the Cluj Faculty of Medicine. The volume was published for the first time in 1944, during the refuge of this Faculty in Sibiu, and for the second time in 1947, in Cluj. Our aim is to make a brief analysis of its structure and to put into evidence the importance of this book for the Romanian laboratory medicine, some techniques (e...

BACKGROUND: Oxidative stress affects negatively the sperm quality. For maintaining the pro/antioxidative balance, some metal ions (e.g. copper, zinc, iron, selenium), which are co-factors of the antioxidant enzymes, are essential. However, iron and copper could act as prooxidants inducing oxidative damage of spermatozoa. AIMS: This study aims to reveal a possible correlation between the concentrations of some metal ions (iron, copper, zinc, and selenium) in human seminal plasma, oxidative stress, assessed by malondialdehyde (MDA) and total glutathione (tGSH) levels, and semen quality, assessed by the parameters count, motility, and morphology...
