Cystinosis is a rare autosomal recessive metabolic disorder characterized by the accumulation of cystine in lysosomes, which results from defects in the carrier-mediated transport protein encoded by the CTNS gene. Infantile nephropathic cystinosis (INC) is one of the major complications of cystinosis. It is characterized by findings of Fanconi's syndrome within the first year of life. Here we report two patients with INC presenting with signs of Fanconi's syndrome and describe a novel CTNS mutation.

REVIEW
Zulal Ozkurt, Esra Cinar Tanriverdi
Zika virus (ZIKV) is an arbovirus of the Flavivirus genus, and it has an envelope and a single RNA molecule. In early 2016, the World Health Organization declared ZIKV infection to be an emerging global health threat. The major transmission route of the virus to humans is Aedes mosquitoes. ZIKV can be transmitted between humans by transplacental, perinatal, and sexual routes and via blood and body fluids. ZIKV infection usually results in a mild and self-limiting disease with low-grade fever, conjunctivitis, and periorbital edema...

REVIEW

The buildings, working personnel, and patients and their relatives may directly or indirectly be affected by the disasters. Here we will discuss evacuation, establishing a field hospital, communication, the role of the media in disasters, and defending against sabotage. The affected individuals should be evacuated and transferred to secure zones safely and rapidly. How the decision for evacuation should be made and how the evacuation triage should be performed are important issues. Field hospitals should be established within the bounds of possibility for continuation of the treatments of evacuated people...

OBJECTIVE: The objectives of this study were to evaluate the impact of two X-ray repair cross complementing 1 (XRCC1) gene polymorphisms (Arg194Trp and Arg399Gln) on the risk of development of colorectal cancer (CRC) and to assess the expression levels of microRNA-21 (miR-21) in CRC patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A case-control cross sectional study was conducted on 50 CRC patients and 50 cancer-free subjects. DNA and miR-21 were extracted from whole blood samples...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to compare ultrasonography (US) and low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) for diagnosing pediatric urolithiasis in the emergency department. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective study was approved by our institutional ethics committee, and informed consent was waived. From March 2016 to March 2017, 100 consecutive patients met the selection criteria and were enrolled in the study. Patients were randomly selected in a 1:1 ratio and were allocated to one of the following two imaging groups: US or abdominal LDCT...

OBJECTIVE: The main purpose of this research was to crosscheck sleep quality in patients with psoriasis with that in healthy individuals and to evaluate a possible relationship between sleep quality and disease severity in these patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty-eight patients with plaque psoriasis and 58 age- and gender-matched healthy individuals were included. The Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) scoring method was used to assess the disease severity in patients with psoriasis...

OBJECTIVE: In addition to their antibiotic effect, macrolides appear to modulate the inflammatory response in cystic fibrosis (CF) and could influence oxidative stress. The objective of this study was to assess oxidation biomarkers and levels of inflammation and to determine whether there is an association between these parameters and the intake of macrolides. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The subjects included in this cross-sectional study were, on the one hand, clinically stable patients with CF and, on the other, healthy controls...

OBJECTIVE: The role of vitamin D in the etiopathogenesis of fibromyalgia and non-specific musculoskeletal pain is controversial. In our study, we aimed to investigate the effect of vitamin D therapy on quality of life in patients with fibromyalgia. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seventy patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia and 65 age- and sex-matched controls were included in the study. Patients were grouped as deficient (<20 ng/mL), inadequate (20-30 ng/mL), and sufficient (>30 ng/mL) according to the levels of vitamin D...

OBJECTIVE: The reasons why endometriosis is more aggressive and invasive in some patients are unknown. Despite the importance of population-based clinically defined risk factors in the prediction of recurrence, biochemical markers obtained from the patient are more valuable for prediction on an individual basis. Therefore, the discovery of significant potential biomarkers could be useful to clinicians for shedding light on the pathogenesis of endometriosis and in the monitoring recurrence...

OBJECTIVE: It is known that depression is common in obese individuals. Besides the effects of obesity, pathogenic effects of increase in visceral and abdominal fat mass on depression are also being investigated. Our study aimed to show the relationship between visceral fat percentage detected with practical methods and the presence and severity of depression. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Our study included 104 obese patients and 50 healthy controls. In all individuals, the severity of depression was assessed using the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI)...

OBJECTIVE: Inflammation plays a significant role in the development of ischemic stroke. CXC chemokines play pleiotropic roles in prolonged leukocyte locomotion, astrocyte migration/activation, and neural attachment/sprouting in response to focal stroke. In this study, we aimed to explore the changes in serum levels of three chemokines, C-X-C motif chemokine ligand 1 (CXCL1), C-X-C motif chemokine ligand 9 (CXCL9), and C-X-C motif chemokine ligand 10 (CXCL10), in ischemic stroke patients at the time of admission and before discharge from the hospital ward...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify microorganisms causing ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) and also study the antibiotic resistance/susceptibility. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively assessed microorganisms isolated from patients diagnosed with VAP in a pediatric intensive care unit between January 1, 2014, and June 30, 2016. RESULTS: We included 44 patients diagnosed with VAP. The prevalence thereof was 8.6 patients per 1,000 ventilator days...
