Fouad Al-Ghamdi, Partha S Ghosh
INTRODUCTION: Neuralgic amyotrophy (NA) is characterized by the clinical triad of pain, muscle weakness/atrophy and sensory symptoms. METHODS: We retrospectively identified children (≤18 years) over 15 years (2002-2017) from a single pediatric center. RESULTS: We had 22 patients (8 female; 6-18 years); pain was the presenting manifestation in all of them. Clinical weakness involving periscapular muscles was observed in 16 patients, scapular winging in 13...

Our study investigated the different mate preferences of the Dark Triad in women. In addition to former studies, we also examined the effect of self-evaluated attractiveness on these preferences. Attractiveness is a high-valued partner attribute, especially in short-term relationships. Accordingly, we predicted that women high in Dark Triad traits prefer characteristics related to short-term mating, because they possess traits favored in short-term relationships. Associations between ideal partner standards and Dark Triad traits were investigated with self-reports: 529 female undergraduate students filled out the Short Dark Triad and the Ideal Standards Scale...

Purpose: Spasm of the near reflex (SNR) is a triad of miosis, excess accommodation and excess convergence. Primary SNR is most often functional in origin We aim to highlight the clinical features which distinguish primary convergence from other conditions with a similar presentation but more sinister underlying aetiology, for example bilateral abducens nerve palsy. Observations: There is a paucity of published data on SNR, in particular diagnostic criteria and treatment...

Meckel-Gruber syndrome (MKS) is a lethal, autosomal recessive transmitted anomaly, characterized by the ultrasound triad: occipital meningoencephalocele, bilateral polycystic kidney, postaxial polydactyly. The incidence is between 1÷13 250 and 1÷140 000 live births, being a rare anomaly. We report a MKS case of feminine gender diagnosed on two ultrasound findings (bilateral polycystic kidney, occipital meningoencephalocele). This case highlights the presence of MKS in a young female without family history...

BACKGROUND: With the increasing access to imaging more pheochromocytomas are diagnosed in the workup of adrenal incidentalomas. This may have changed the occurrence of the classic presentation with hypertension and the classic triad (headaches, sweating and palpitation). METHODS: We reviewed 94 consecutive cases of pheochromocytomas. Two cases of ectopic ACTH-syndrome were subsequently excluded. RESULTS: Of the 92 cases included 64% had presented as an incidentaloma, 32% as a suspected pheochromocytoma and 4% had been screened because of previously diagnosed MEN2A...

OBJECTIVES: Parents are critical to ensure sufficient human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine coverage. No studies to date have examined how mothers and fathers perceive their own, their partners' and their sons' involvement in HPV vaccination decision-making process. METHODS: An online survey methodology was used to collect data from a national sample of Canadian parents (33% fathers, 67% mothers, Mage=44) who had a 9-16years old son (n=3117). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Parent's perception of their self-involvement, partner-involvement and son's involvement in the decision to get their son the HPV vaccine were measured on a Likert scale and were classified as 'no involvement', 'moderate involvement' and 'high involvement'...

Despite an increasing number of studies, there is still a lack of knowledge about the unique features that underlie the process in equine assisted social work (EASW). This study aimed to reveal, through qualitative methods, the dyads within the triad that become stronger during the process of EASW, as well as the effect of the participation of the horse on the relationship between the counselor and client. Data were collected through in-depth interviews with nine female self-harming clients aged 15-21 years and eight staff members...

Accurate diagnosis of a distinct epilepsy syndrome is based on well-defined electroclinical features that differentiate separate nosological entities. In clinical practice, however, syndromes may overlap and cases may present with unusual manifestations posing a diagnostic challenge. This heterogeneity has been documented in several cases presenting with eyelid myoclonia with or without absences (EMA) diagnosed either as Jeavons syndrome (JS) variants or as genetic generalised epilepsies defined by the presence of this unique clinical entity...

Background: Mucoceles are epithelial lined sacs that contain mucous. Eventually, they can be infected and so called mucopyoceles, which are usually slow growing lesions with common bone destruction located in the facial sinus. Mucoceles show multivariate etiology and occur between the fourth and seventh decade of life. Case Description: Patient, 55-year-old, female, was referred unconscious with Cushing's triad to our department; she had fever since four days. The findings of skull computer tomography highlighted a large bifrontal lesion with an invasion of the rear wall of the frontal sinus, compression of the frontal lobes, and midline deviation...

Unilateral renal agenesis (URA) is a rare condition with a reported incidence of 0.93-1.8 per 1000 autopsies. It is commonly diagnosed as an incidental finding on imaging. URA is frequently associated with other genitourinary anomalies. Different associations have been described in both males and females, however, to our knowledge, it has not been reported with subseptate uterus (SSU) and sacrococcygeal teratoma (SCT) in the same individual. Here, we present a unique case of URA with SSU and SCT.

BACKGROUND: Histidine triad nucleotide-binding protein 1 (HINT1) is regarded as a haplo-insufficient tumor suppressor and is closely associated with diverse neuropsychiatric diseases. Moreover, HINT1 is related to gender-specific acute behavior changes in schizophrenia and in response to nicotine. Stress has a range of molecular effects in emotional disorders, which can cause a reduction in brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) expression in the hippocampus, resulting in hippocampal atrophy and neuronal cell loss...

The female athletic triad refers to the interaction between menstrual function, energy availability and bone density. When an imbalance appears between energy input and output, the global health of the athletic teenager is at risk of somatic and/or psychological complications as defined by the RED-S (Relative Energy Deficiency in Sports). In athletic girls menstrual disorder should be seen as an alert. It may be difficult to distinguish it from menstrual irregularity due to immature hypothalamic-hyphophysic-gonadal axis, which can be physiological at that age...

Primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) is considered a model autoimmune disease due to its signature AMA autoantibody, female predominance and relatively specific portal infiltration and cholestasis. The identification and cloning of the major mitochondrial autoantigens, recognized by AMA, have served as an immunologic platform to identify the earliest events involved in loss of tolerance. Despite the relative high concordance rate in identical twins, genome wide association studies have not proven clinically useful and have led to suggestions of epigenetic events...

BACKGROUND: Systematic assessment of emotional distress is recommended in after care. Yet, it is unclear if parent report may be used as a proxy of child report. The aim of this study was to assess agreements and differences and explore possible moderators of disagreement between child and parent ratings. METHODS: Sixty-two young survivors treated for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (9-18 years) and both parents responded to the Beck Youth Inventory (anxiety and depression) and the distress rating scale on the child's status...
