Background Palliative care is not yet integrated into the health-care system in Saudi Arabia. King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre-Riyadh (KFSH&RC-Riyadh) is a tertiary care facility and regional cancer centre in Saudia Arabia with a highly multinational nursing workforce. Little is known about these nurses' knowledge of and attitudes towards palliative care. Aim To determine the palliative care knowledge and attitudes of the nursing workforce of KFSH&RC-Riyadh and any influencing factors. Method A questionnaire including demographic data, the Palliative Care Quiz for Nurses (PCQN), and Frommelt Attitude Toward Care of the Dying scale (FATCOD) was completed by 395 staff nurses from 19 countries...

Patients suffering from considerable cutaneous loss must be treated under strict aseptic conditions and with positive pressure ventilation, which is available in burns units. The differentiation of severe bullous skin diseases remains a challenge for the clinician. We report seven cases of severe bullous skin diseases in a paediatric age group treated in a burns unit with the cooperation of a paediatric intensive care unit (King Saud Hospital, Unizah, Kingdom of Saudia Arabia) between 2001 and 2005. Toxic epidermal necrolysis (Lyell's syndrome) was encountered in five cases, staphylococcal scalded-skin syndrome in one, and generalized drug eruption in one...

Chronic infection with hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a serious public health problem affecting an estimated 2% of the world's population. The natural history of HCV infection in hemodialysis patients remains incompletely understood and the management is difficult. HCV infection in hemodialysis patients is usually asymptomatic. Given the diminished life expectancy of hemodialysis patients, complications such as decompensated cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma may not have time to develop. The frequency of advanced fibrosis or cirrhosis ranges from 0% to 28 %...

Women who have symptoms related to the genitourinary system present daily in a typical family medicine practice. The most common complaints are dysuria, increased urinary frequency, and incontinence. In the vast majority of cases the underlying problem is either urinary tract infection, urinary incontinence without infection, or bladder pain without infection that may be termed painful bladder syndrome/interstitial cystitis. This article discusses epidemiology, pathophysiology, risk factors, diagnosis, and treatment of these conditions...

The majority of a-thalassemia results from the large deletions in a-globin gene cluster, including both or either one of alpha-globin genes (alpha1 and alpha2). Most common a-thalassemia-2 deletions (single gene deletions) are -alpha3.7 and -alpha4.2, and alpha-thalassemia-1 deletions (double gene deletions) are --SEA, --THAI, --FIL, --MED and -(alpha)20.5 Although it is not easy to diagnose these deletions because of the high GC content at this locus and the sequence homology among psi alpha2, psi alpha1, alpha2 and alpha1 genes, these alleles can now be diagnosed by a single tube multiplex gapPCR assay...
