The co-existence of Darier disease (DD) and acrokeratosis verruciformis of Hopf (AKV) has been noted for decades and the relationship between the 2 entities remains controversial. Although, it has been shown that both diseases are associated with mutations in ATPA2 gene, it is yet to be determined if they are the same disease, or separate but allelic, or interlinked in some other fashion. Herein, the authors report the case of a 13-year-old girl presenting with shiny flat-topped verruca plana-like papules, on the dorsal hands and feet and red-brown crusted papules on her forehead and along the sides of her neck...

Police officers responsible for the seizure and removal of illegally grown cannabis plants from indoor and outdoor growing operations face the prospect of THC exposure while performing their work duties. As a result, a study investigating the amount of THC on hands and uniforms of officers during raids on cannabis growing houses (CGHs) and forest cannabis plantations (FCPs) and in the air at these sites was conducted. Swabs of gloves/hands, chests, and heads/necks were collected and analysed for THC. Results of hand swabs indicated that officers removing plants from FCPs were exposed to THC concentrations up to 20 times those involved in raids at CGHs, which was mainly associated with the number and size of plants seized...

BACKGROUND: Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have emerged as key players in a remarkably variety of biological processes and pathologic conditions, including cancer. Next-generation sequencing technologies and bioinformatics procedures predict the existence of tens of thousands of lncRNAs, from which we know the functions of only a handful of them, and very little is known in cancer types such as head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCCs). RESULTS: Here, we use RNAseq expression data from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and various statistic and software tools in order to get insight about the lncRNome in HNSCC...

INTRODUCTION: Subacute thyroiditis is a self-limited, inflammatory viral thyroid disease which presents with neck pain, usually accompanied by systemic symptoms. On the other hand, thyroid storm is a clinical condition of severe sudden hyperthyroidism accompanied by physiologic de-compensation. We presented a 29-year-old male with features of subacute thyroiditis and thyroid storm who is the third reported case managed by steroid, beta-blocker and analgesics. CONCLUSION: subacute thyroiditis may present with thyrotoxic crisis which respond dramatically to corticosteroid therapy...

INTRODUCTION: Central Cord Syndrome (CCS) is the most common of the spinal cord injury syndromes. Few cases have been presented with gunshot wound (GSW) as a cause of a central cord syndrome, and none, to our knowledge, has been presented without any evidence of central canal bullet/bone fragments. CASE PRESENTATION: A 27-year-old male suffered two close-range gunshot wounds, one to the left neck and one to the left shoulder. CT scan showed C5 spinous process fracture and paraspinal muscle hemorrhage without evidence of central canal stenosis or bullet/bone fragments...

Fracture of fifth metacarpal neck commonly requires open reduction and internal fixation. However, the current methods of internal fixation in fifth metacarpal neck fractures remain unsatisfactory. Patients with fractures of fifth metacarpal neck received open reduction and internal fixation with either locking plate in combination with two crossed Kirschner wires (K-wires) or locking plate alone were evaluated for the clinical outcomes. Clinical outcomes included grip strength, Michigan hand outcomes questionnaire (MHQ), final angulation and range of motion (ROM) one year after treatment...

Treatment of a nonunion of the proximal humerus remains a challenge because of the small proximal fragment and poor central cancellous bone stock of the humeral head. In this report, we describe our experience using a "half-folded" pedicled scapular bone flap with an anatomical locking plate to treat an atrophic nonunion of the proximal humerus in a 64-year-old right-handed woman. The patient had fallen and experienced a common humeral neck fracture 2.5 years previously. During the operation, we elevated the pedicled scapular bone flap, which measured 8...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to determine the biomechanical stability of headless compression screws in the fixation of metacarpal neck fractures and to compare them with another common, less invasive form of fixation, K-wires. The hypothesis was that headless compression screws would show higher stiffness and peak load to failure than K-wire fixation. METHODS: Eight matched-paired hands (n = 31), using the ring and little finger metacarpals, had metacarpal fractures simulated at the physeal scar...
