To shed more light on the contribution of structural brain changes to the presence of PD-related depressive symptoms, we conducted a Voxel-Based Morphometry (VBM) study. We hypothesized that depressive symptoms in PD are related to regional gray matter (GM) volume loss within the limbic circuit...

We report the case of a young female with disphagia and weigth loss caused by a vascular ring associated with right aortic arch, Kommerell diverticula, and left retroesophageal ligamentum arteriosum (ductus arteriosus). The patient underwent surgical treatment. A left thoracotomy was performed. Surgical technique included diverticulum ressection and an aortopexia. There were no major complications. We also discuss the incidence, pathology, diagnosis, clinical features and treatment of this rare disease.

OBJECTIVE: Adipose tissue is considered an active secretory organ of adipocytokines. The principal aim of our study was to examine the changes in adipocytokines levels after weigth reduction in obese patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A population of 126 obese (body mass index > 30) non-diabetic outpatients was analyzed in a prospective way. Before and after three months of a lifestyle modification program, an indirect calorimetry, a tetrapolar electrical bioimpedance, blood pressure, a serial assessment of nutritional intake with 3 days written food records and a series of biochemical analyses were performed...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of our study was to detect differences in weigth loss with a hypocaloric diet in obese patients depending on their glycaemic status. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: A population of 76 obesity outpatients was analysed in a prospective way. The following variables were specifically recorded at basal time and after 3 months of hypocaloric diet (1200 kcal/day): weight, blood pressure, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference, and waist-hip ratio. Basal glucose, insulin, fibrinogen, cortisol, c-reactive protein, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol and triglycerides blood levels were measured...

Mycobacterium avium Intracellulare is a significant pathogen in immunocompromised patients.We present a male patient, 37 years old, HIV(positive) since 1998 with clinical history of chronic diarrhea and weigth loss. On December 1999 he was seen on the Gastroenterology service of Arzobispo Loayza Hospital. He was found to have esophageal candidiasis and Mycobacterium avium Intracellular in his duodenum.The epidemiological, clinical, endoscopy and pathological features are reviewed in this special way of presentation, the association between AIDS and MAI...

Nude men were exposed to neutral environments (Ta = 28 degrees C, Pw = 20 mbar) changing to warm environments (Ta = 50 degrees C, Pw = 20 mbar). The transient period from neutral to warm environment lasted 4 min (dTA/DT = 5.50 degrees C/min) or 20 min (DTa/dt = 1.10 degrees C/min) or 40 min (dTa/dt = 0.55 degrees C/min) or 60 min (dTa/dt = 0.37 degrees C/min). Continuous measurements were made of rectal and mean skin temperatures and of body weigth loss. Sweating started before appreciable variation in rectal temperature...
