Animal related injuries as most common causes of human morbidity have different pattern by geographical zones. We aimed to explore the main descriptive epidemiology of animal-related injuries in both rural and urban areas in Iran. Between 2000 and 2004, we collected the data of all the cases of animal related trauma hospitalized for more than 24 hours in eight cities (Tehran, Mashhad, Ahwaz, Shiraz, Tabriz, Qom, Kermanshah, and Babol). Further evaluations were conducted on 17753 eligible subjects. Of 17753 traumatic patients, 40 subjects (0...

Eight children with post-varicella musculoskeletal complications were treated between 2001 and 2009. The complications that were observed were cellulitis (three children), pyomyositis (three children), osteomyelitis (two children) and gangrene (one child). On average, 8.8 days elapsed between primary varicella infection and complication. The most common presentation was pain. Before we started treating them, all children received antibiotics during interhospital transfers (average: 2.4). Interventions included drainage (eight), fasciatomy (one), arthrotomy (one), bone drilling (one), and amputation (one)...

Even though no direct physiologic evidence proving that myo-tendinous junctions at the end of myofibers are sites of force transmission is available, these locations are accepted to support this function, because its specialized morphology resembles that of load-bearing membranes in structure and location: Its design is fit for force transmission of force exerted by myofibers to tendinous fibrous material. Shearing of the interface between these structures is thought to be stronger than direct tensile transmission...

The authors describe a case of a self-caused giant lynphoedema of the hand. The authors underline the importance of hospitalization for the diagnosis, also to be able to exclude any form of organic pathology. They suggest the utility of a decompressive operation of the lynphatic circulation by a little fasciatomy at the root of the forearm, in order to avoid the application of a lace on the wound of the forearm root. Of great importance is furthermore to close the limb into a plastered apparatus for the same purpose...
