INTRODUCTION: Transient jejunal intussusception in an adult is a rare clinical finding as reported in the English literature. The diagnosis is usually a matter of exclusion given the extremely rare nature of this medical condition. PRESENTATION OF THE CASE: A young female presented to our hospital with abdominal pain and distention of six months duration. The episodes were intermittent in nature and resolved with conservative management. The aetiology remained obscure until a computerized tomography(CT) scan diagnosed a small bowel intussusceptionIntraoperatively a small bowel tumour was identified and resected...

Weapon-related violent crime is a serious, complex, and multifaceted public health problem. The present study uses data from Waves I and III of Add Health (n = 10,482, 54% female) to examine how friendship group integration and cohesion in adolescence (ages 12-19) is associated with weapon-related criminal activity as a young adult (ages 18-26). Results indicate that greater cohesion in friendship groups is associated with significantly lower weapon-related criminal activity in young adulthood. In addition, for adolescent girls, a greater number of close friendship ties-an indicator of friendship group integration-is associated with less weapon-related criminal activity in young adulthood...

Near-infrared fluorescent cholangiography (NIRFC) is an emerging technique for easy intraoperative recognition of biliary anatomy. We present a case of cystic duct variation detected by NIRFC which had a potential risk for biliary injury if not detected. A 32-year-old female was admitted to the Seoul St. Mary's Hospital for surgery for an incidental gallbladder polyp. We performed laparoscopic cholecystectomy with NIRFC. In fluorescence mode, a long cystic duct and an accessory short hepatic duct joining to the cystic duct were found and the operation was completed safely...

Inspissated bile syndrome (IBS) is a rare condition in which thick intraluminal bile, including bile plugs, sludge, or stones, blocks the extrahepatic bile ducts in an infant. A 5-week-old female infant was admitted for evaluation of jaundice and acholic stool. Diagnostic tests, including ultrasound sonography, magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography, and a hepatobiliary scan, were not conclusive. Although the diagnosis was unclear, the clinical and laboratory findings improved gradually on administration of urodeoxycholic acid and lipid emulsion containing omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) for 3 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Although size is one of the strongest predictors, small aneurysms often rupture. We compared the characteristics of small and large ruptured intracranial aneurysms (RIAs) according to their location to find the factors associated with small RIAs in each location. METHODS: Patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage due to saccular RIAs were consecutively enrolled. The sizes were dichotomized as small (<5 mm) or large, and the location was classified as paraclinoid-distal internal carotid artery, sidewalls of anterior or middle cerebral artery (MCA; sidewall), MCA-bifurcation, anterior or posterior communicating artery (Acom or Pcom, respectively), and posterior circulation RIAs...

A 10-year-old well and asymptomatic female was referred for screening of acute right ventricular dilatation (ARVD) as she had an elder brother diagnosed with ARVD whom died of sudden cardiac death. Electrocardiography (ECG), transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) were performed. Results of these investigations were suggestive of ARVD. Despite being a rare cardiac disease and largely unrecognised in children and young adult population, ARVD is an important cause of ventricular arrhythmias in this group of patients and is one of the causes of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in this population...

Elevated inflammation in the female genital tract is associated with increased HIV risk. Cervicovaginal bacteria modulate genital inflammation; however, their role in HIV susceptibility has not been elucidated. In a prospective cohort of young, healthy South African women, we found that individuals with diverse genital bacterial communities dominated by anaerobes other than Gardnerella were at over 4-fold higher risk of acquiring HIV and had increased numbers of activated mucosal CD4(+) T cells compared to those with Lactobacillus crispatus-dominant communities...
