Disseminated strongyloidiosis may develop in patients with immunodeficiencies. S. stercoralis hyperinfection is often accompanied by sepsis or meningitis with enteric organisms.

Pain control in patients with cancer represents a significant aspect of radiation therapy practice. Radiation therapy is one of the most effective, and often the only, therapeutic option to relieve pain caused by nerve compression or infiltration by malignant tumor, pain from liver and bony metastases and it provides also successful palliation of dysphagia caused by oesophageal carcinoma and of pain due to pancreatic cancer. Various instruments are avaliable for pain evaluation but a valid methodology to assess the pain status in the patient with cronic cancer pain is still an important clinical problem...

In this work, 60 patients with an hepatocarcinoma diagnosis, corrobarated with hepatic biopsies at the Hospital Cayetano Heredia, between 1969 and 1997, are studied to determine clinical presentation and laboratory findings of this entity within us. The early hepatocarcinoma cases studied were 60. The age group that suffered mostly from this pathology was between 60 to 69 years (23.33%), followed by the age group of 20 to 29 years (20%). While the mean age was of 45 years. 56.66% were male, and 43.33% were female...

The rotator cuff syndrome is defined as a cronical pain syndrome, originating from the rotator cuff with characteristic pain and referred pain. Disorders evolving from the rotator cuff and the rotator muscles comprise between 70 og 90% of the shoulder disorders. The rotator cuff syndrome may be of occupational origin, particularly in heavy work with tasks at or above shoulder level, e.g. shipyard welders and plate workers. Biomecanically surveys show that continuous blood flow in the rotator muscles ceases at about 30 degrees of flexion or abduction of the upper arm...
