PURPOSE: Isotretinoin is the most effective drug for acne with some side effects. Few studies exist regarding the effects of isotretinoin on haematological parameters with different results. Mostly, baseline values with a single value during or at the end of the treatment were compared. In this study, we aimed to determine the differences in haematological parameters during isotretinoin treatment until reaching the cumulative dose of 120 mg/kg.

Simultaneous thrombosis of multiple epicardial coronary arteries is an uncommon clinical finding in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). We describe a 44 year-old male present with STEMI who was found to have simultaneously occluded two epicardial arteries. There is many clinical states that can lead to multiple thrombosis i.e. essential trombocytosis, hiperhomocysteinaemia, depletion of antitrombin III, cocaine abuse etc. In this particular case L-arginin supplementation and association with thrombosis or atherosclerosis progression is discussed...

Takayasu's arteritis is a chronic inflammatory disease that primarily affects the large vessels, such as the aorta and its branches. It represents the third most frequent vasculitis during pediatric age. Our objective was to describe clinical and complementary exams features as well as treatment modalities of a case series of pediatric patients. We present 11 patients (10 girls) with median age at onset of 8 years (range: 2-15). The median diagnosis delay was 16 months (range: 2-96). Clinical presentations were lower limb claudication, arterial hypertension, CNS involvement, presence of murmurs, systemic symptoms, lymphadenopathy, chest pain, abdominal pain and arthritis...

Mesothel is the cell lining of serosal surface of the pleura, peritoneum, pericardium, and testis. Malignant mesothelioma is a highly aggressive tumor from mesothel that has a tendency to grow rapidly and invade locally. Although the incidence of malignant mesenterial mesothelioma is not so high, the case fatality rate is very high. The aim of this case report is to report the rare and difficult case with several complications. A Balinese man, 64 years old, came with chief complaint of weakness, abdominal enlargement, and nausea, with history of previous liver disease...

AIM: The aim of this paper was to evaluate usefulness and safety of Meropenem in severe infections in neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) patients. New broad spectrum carbapenem class of -lactam antibiotics has been investigated for the treatment of a wide range of infections, including nosocomial infections with cephalosporin-resistant pathogens, an emergent problem in NICU, and meningitis. Meropenem represents the first cabapenem-class that has received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for use in children 3 months of age and older...

Blood zinc level, hematological parameters and blood cell morphology were evaluated in common carp immediately after 3 h exposure to 20 mg dm(-3) of zinc (Zn0), and in 24, 48 and 96 hours after the end of it (Zn24, Zn48, Zn96). Blood zinc level in the non-exposed fish was 8 mg dm(-3), reached a maximum of 20 mg dm(-3) in Zn48, while it dropped to 9 mg dm(-3) in Zn96. Zinc caused a stress reaction in fish indicated by an increase in hematocrit value in Zn0, and elevated plasma glucose level and trombocytosis which persisted until the end of the experiment...
