Snapping elbow is a rare condition, which has various possible causes such as impinged plica, annular ligament, or other extra-articular causes. We report a case of 15-year-old boy who had had snapping elbow and sudden-onset flexion contracture of the elbow. Simple radiographs showed bilateral anterior dislocation of hypoplastic radial heads. Magnetic resonance images with the elbow extended as much as possible showed that the annular ligament hemmed the dislocated radial neck. By surgical incision of the annular ligament which checkreined the radial neck, the patients could regain full extension of the elbow...

BACKGROUND: Protruding ears represent the main abnormality of the external ear, which has required numerous anatomic and surgical studies. Most studies give attention to the absence of the antihelix as the anatomic defect responsible for the clinical deformity of the lateral aspect of the ear that leads to its anteversion. The reason for this study is the controversial origin of the fold of the antihelix within the auricle framework, a field of interest for aesthetic otoplasty. The current study examined the medial surface of the cartilaginous ear frame from cadaver specimens with right morphology to investigate the starting point of the fold of the antihelix...

Vulvar fissures are linear tears extending into the dermis. When in the posterior fourchette, it is known as granuloma fissuratum plicae labioalveolaris, or vulvar granuloma fissuratum, a term first described by Sutton et al. in 1932. (1) The other pattern are small fissures occurring at other vulvar locations, and sexually active patients report entry dyspareunia. (2-8) In majority of cases, vulvar fissures are secondary findings in a plethora of inflammatory dermatoses or infections, rarely, can occur as primary findings without any apparent causes...

Objectives The boundaries of the temporal lobe, the parietal lobe, and the anterior portion of the occipital lobe (OL) are poorly defined. Lesions in these areas can be difficult to localize. Therefore, we studied the anterolateral limit of the OL to identify reliable anatomical landmarks. Design In 10 formalin-fixed cadaveric heads, the boundaries of the OL and relative anatomical landmarks were studied. Main Outcome Measures Distances between the following structures were measured: (1) preoccipital tentorial plica (POTP) to the junction between lambdoid suture and superior border of the transverse sinus (POTP-SL), (2) POTP to the sinodural angle of Citelli (POTP-PP), (3) lambda to parietooccipital sulcus (L-POS), and (4) preoccipital notch to termination of the vein of Labbé (PON-VL)...

The geological age of the onychophoran crown-group, and when the group came onto land, have been sources of debate. Although stem-group Onychophora have been identified from as early as the Cambrian, the sparse record of terrestrial taxa from before the Cretaceous is subject to contradictory interpretations. A Late Carboniferous species from the Mazon Creek biota of the USA, Helenodora inopinata, originally interpreted as a crown-group onychophoran, has recently been allied to early Cambrian stem-group taxa...

Accurate stock assessments for each of the dominant species of sand lances in the northeast Atlantic Ocean and adjacent areas are not available due to the lack of a reliable identification procedure; therefore, appropriate measures of fisheries management or conservation of sand lances cannot be implemented. In this study, detailed morphological and molecular features are assessed to discriminate between four species of sand lances belonging to the genera Ammodytes and Hyperoplus. Morphological characters described by earlier authors as useful for identification of the genera are confirmed, and two additional distinguishing characters are added...
