BACKGROUND: Comorbidity constitutes a serious challenge for rehabilitative medicine. The comorbidity of the dorsopathy of the lumbar spine and irritable bowel syndrome mutually complicates the clinical course of both conditions, significantly reduces the patients' quality of life. and increases the costs of diagnostic procedures and restoration of the working capacity. The approaches to the non-pharmacological management of the patients presenting with these diseases remain to be developed...

Degenerative spine disease is a serious social problem. In most cases, it causes pain and neurological symptoms. Most patients are therefore referred for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The article discusses the relationship between back pain and magnetic resonance changes. The signification of some of the radiological symptoms remains controversial. Some of them are markers of acute pain, others may be clinically insignificant, occurring with age. Authors presents some of the magnetic resonance alterations and based on the latest articles discusses their clinical significance...

BACKGROUND: Fabry disease is caused by a deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme α-galactosidase, resulting in progressive accumulation of globotriaosylceramide (GL-3). The disease can manifest early during childhood and adolescence. Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) with recombinant human α-galactosidase is the first specific treatment for Fabry disease and has been available in Europe since 2001. This paper presents the findings of a systematic literature review of clinical outcomes with ERT in paediatric patients with Fabry disease...

Ashima Arora, Shameema Anvar Sadath
Genital tuberculosis is usually diagnosed in young women being assessed for infertility. After menopause it usually presents with symptoms resembling endometrial malignancy, such as postmenopausal bleeding, persistent vaginal discharge and pyometra. The diagnosis is made by detection of acid-fast bacilli on microscopy or bacteriological culture and/or presence of epithelioid granuloma on biopsy. Anti-tubercular therapy involves the use of rifampicin, isoniazid, pyrazinamide and ethambutol. Surgery is indicated if a pelvic mass and recurrence of pain or bleeding persist after 9 months of treatment...

The clinical presentation of the Takotsubo syndrome mimics an acute coronary syndrome with chest pain, ischemia-like ECG changes, mild to moderate myocardial enzyme elevation, and apical ballooning on echocardiography and ventriculography. On coronary angiography, epicardial coronary arteries are either normal or exhibit minimal atherosclerotic changes. Primary Takotsubo syndrome usually occurs in postmenopausal women in whom symptoms are triggered by emotional or physical stress, associated with catecholamine surges...
