INTRODUCTION: Blunt abdominal trauma is the most common cause of splenic rupture. Malaria is the most frequent tropical infectious cause of spontaneous splenic rupture. The exact mechanism is not well-defined. CASE REPORT: We report a case of thirty-year-old male patient known to have malaria who presented with spontaneous splenic rupture. A trial of conservative treatment failed and splenecomy was done to control bleeding. CONCLUSION: Spontaneous splenic rupture should be kept in mind in malaria patients presenting with left upper quadrant pain and signs of hypovolemia...

A 47-year-old female presented to clinic with a 5-year history of a left buttock mass. The patient's hemoglobin was low (9.7 g/dL); laboratory analysis was otherwise unremarkable. Ultrasound of the left gluteal region demonstrated a heterogeneous vascular solid lesion. Magnetic resonance and computed tomography imaging showed an enhancing mass extending from the left ischioanal fossa through the levator ani muscle into the pelvis. Biopsy revealed bland-appearing spindle-shaped cells positive for estrogen and progesterone receptors, consistent with an aggressive angiomyxoma...

BACKGROUND: Interscalene brachial plexus block (ISB) is the gold standard for postoperative pain management in shoulder surgery. However, this technique has side effects and potentially serious complications. The aim of this study was to compare the combinations of ultrasound-guided suprascapular (SSB) associated with supraclavicular nerve block (SCB) and ultrasound-guided ISB for postoperative analgesia after shoulder instability surgery. METHODS: Sixty ASA physical status I-II patients scheduled to undergo shoulder instability surgery were included...

Excessive alcohol consumption is a major public health problem worldwide. Although drinking habits are known to be inherited, few genes have been identified that are robustly linked to alcohol drinking. We conducted a genome-wide association metaanalysis and replication study among >105,000 individuals of European ancestry and identified β-Klotho (KLB) as a locus associated with alcohol consumption (rs11940694; P = 9.2 × 10(-12)). β-Klotho is an obligate coreceptor for the hormone FGF21, which is secreted from the liver and implicated in macronutrient preference in humans...

Current biomarkers of renal disease in systemic vasculitis lack predictive value and are insensitive to early damage. To identify novel biomarkers of renal vasculitis flare, we analysed the longitudinal urinary metabolomic profile of a rat model of anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) vasculitis. Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats were immunised with human myeloperoxidase (MPO). Urine was obtained at regular intervals for 181 days, after which relapse was induced by re-challenge with MPO. Urinary metabolites were assessed in an unbiased fashion using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, and analysed using partial least squares discriminant analysis (PLS-DA) and partial least squares regression (PLS-R)...

Strain QLW-P1FAT50C-4T, isolated from a shallow acidic freshwater pond located in the Austrian Alps at an altitude of 1300 m, was characterized by investigation of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and genomic traits. As shown previously, phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences place the strain in the cryptic species complex PnecC within the genus Polynucleobacter. The major fatty acids of the strain were C16:1 ω7c and C18:1 ω7c. The strain has a genome of 2.23 Mbp with a GC content of 44.9 mol%. The strain encodes a seemingly complete gene cluster for anoxygenic photosynthesis but lacks typical genes for CO2 assimilation...

We isolated a Gram-staining-negative, pink-pigmented, motile, pleomorphic, extremely halophilic archaeon from the brine-seawater interface of Discovery Deep in the Saudi Arabian Red Sea. This strain, designated SB9T, is capable of growth within a wide range of temperatures and salinity concentrations, but requires MgCl2. Cells lyse in distilled water, but at 7.0% NaCl (w/v) cell lysis is prevented. The major polar lipids from strain SB9T are phosphatidylglycerol (PG), phosphatidylglycerorophosphate-methylester (PGP-Me), sulfated mannosyl glucosyl diether (S-DGD-1), mannosyl glucosyl diether (DGD-1), unidentified glycolipid (GL1) and unidentified phospholipids (UPL1 and UPL2)...

Peritoneal protein loss is one of the inevitable consequences during continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Our objective was to study the effect of sulodexide on the protein loss and efficiency of dialysis. This study included six patients receiving CAPD treated with sulodexide at the dose of 600 IU/day given by intraperitoneal injection for 10 days. Clinical and biologic parameters were assessed before starting the treatment (D0 and after 10 days of treatment (D10. We also evaluated the benefit of therapy persisting 20 days after the end of treatment (D30...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have decreased survival because of increased cardiovascular risk compared with the general population, and treatment with tocilizumab (TCZ) has been shown to increase lipid levels; however, the relationship between lipids and cardiovascular risk is unknown. This post hoc analysis expanded on previously reported 24-week results by characterizing statin use and subsequent changes in lipid parameters in patients with RA treated with intravenous or subcutaneous TCZ (TCZ-IV or TCZ-SC) over 2 years of treatment...

Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are the most prevalent type of variation in genomes that are increasingly being used as molecular markers in diversity analyses, mapping and cloning of genes, and germplasm characterization. However, only a few studies reported large-scale SNP discovery in Aegilops tauschii, restricting their potential use as markers for the low-polymorphic D genome. Here, we report 68,592 SNPs found on the gene-related sequences of the 5D chromosome of Ae. tauschii genotype MvGB589 using genomic and transcriptomic sequences from seven Ae...

Judicious structural design employing 2-quinolinecarboxaldehyde and 4-methylaniline was used to generate the Schiff base ligand (E)-4-methyl-N-((quinolin-2-yl)ethylidene)aniline (L). Five IIB complexes, namely, [ZnLCl2] (1), [ZnL(NO3)2] (2), [ZnL(OAc)2]3 (3), [CdL(OAc)2]3 (4), and [HgLCl2] (5) have been synthesized based on L. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis indicates that complexes 1, 3 and 4 exhibit 3D networks, whereas 2 and 5 form 2D layers and 1D chains, respectively. TD-DFT calculations show a good correlation with the UV-vis absorption assigned to π → π* intraligand transitions...

Solitary osteochondromas rarely occur in the axial skeleton. Those tumors mostly arise on the posterior elements of the cervical column causing various symptoms especially when developing within the spinal canal. Exophytic lumbar variety is uncommon presenting with palpable mass or spinal deformity. We report a 20-year-old man presenting with a solid painless mass at the lower lumbar region. Radiological examinations revealed an exophytic lesion arising in the third lumbar spinous process appearing to be a solitary osteochondroma...
