We report the case of a 62-year-old black man who was on a maintenance immunosuppressive regimen that included mycophenolate mofetil and cyclosporine following renal transplantation 9 years prior. He presented to the dermatology department for evaluation of a pigmented longitudinal streak on the left third finger adjacent to the lateral nail fold that had been present for several months. He noted that the streak was increasing in size, and his fingertip had recently become tender. The pigmented band was biopsied, and histopathology showed atypia of the epidermis consistent with pigmented squamous cell carcinoma (pSCC)...

BACKGROUND: Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is a condition that involves skeletal muscles. It is caused by overload or disuse of muscles and is characterized by extreme tenderness in the muscles with taut bands. Treatment for MPS is different from that for cancer-related pain. Cancer patients have many factors that cause restriction of body movement and posture. Although cancer patients appear to demonstrate risk factors for MPS, its prevalence has not been reported in patients with incurable cancer...

Emotions are processed asymmetrically by the human brain. Frontal alpha asymmetry (FAA) as measured by electroencephalographic (EEG) power in the alpha band (8-13 Hz), is a sensitive indicator of asymmetric brain activity in the frontal cortex. The current study aimed to analyze the frontal EEG asymmetries in terms of valence and motivational direction. We presented 37 participants with three film excerpts that were selected from the standard emotional film database to elicit three target emotions: tenderness, anger, and neutrality...

Study Design Clinical measurement, cross-sectional. Background Investigations on the causes of patellar tendinopathy (PT) should consider impairments at the hip and foot/ankle since they are known to influence movement patterns and affect patellar tendon loading. Objectives To investigate, by means of CART analysis, impairments of the hip and foot/ankle that are associated with PT in volleyball and basketball athletes. Methods One-hundred and ninety athletes were assessed for impairments of the hip and foot/ankle including: shank-forefoot alignment (SFA), ankle dorsiflexion range of motion (DF ROM), iliotibial band flexibility, passive hip internal rotation (IR) ROM, and hip external rotator (ER) and hip abductor isometric strength...

Protein biomarkers of meat tenderness are known to be of primary importance for the prediction of meat quality, and hence, industry profitability. Proteome analysis was performed on meat from 8 Main Anjou beef cattle, previously classified as tender or tough meats by Warner Bratzler shear force measurements. Myofibrillar fraction of Longissimus thoracis muscle was separated by a novel fractionation approach based on liquid isoelectric focusing (OFFGEL) and further analyzed by SDS-PAGE and liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry...

Introduction: Muscle pain has been associated with reduced maximal muscle strength, and reduced rate of force development (RFD). Strength training (ST) has shown an effect in not only normalizing muscle function but also reducing neck muscle pain. Aim: The aims of this study were to compare muscle function in terms of strength, force steadiness in neck flexion, as well as extension, and rate of RFD of the shoulder in tension-type headache (TTH) patients and healthy controls and to examine the correlation to tenderness...

Despite the accumulating neuro-physiological evidence of myofascial pain, many clinicians are skeptical about its existence as a separate disease entity. No single theory can fully explain the four cardinal features of MPS; taut bands, local tenderness, local twitching and the characteristic pattern of referred pain. Bridging the gap between basic and clinical knowledge mandates coupling the local trigger point changes with the clinically seen distant somatically innervated referred pain. The main question addressed by the present theory is why do trigger points behave differently in comparison to the surrounding muscle tissue and are trigger points the primary problem or secondary to a primary pathology...

REVIEW
Lindsay S Flynn, Thomas W Wright, Joseph J King
Quadrilateral space (QS) syndrome (QSS) is a relatively rare condition in which the axillary nerve and the posterior humeral circumflex artery are compressed within the QS. Fibrous bands are most commonly implicated as the cause, with true space-occupying lesions being less common. QSS is characterized by poorly localized shoulder pain and paresthesia over the lateral aspect of the shoulder and arm in a nondermatomal pattern. These symptoms are aggravated by shoulder abduction and external rotation. Point tenderness is typically present over the QS; however, diagnosis on physical examination can be difficult...

INTRODUCTION: The mesodiverticular band (MDB) is an embryologic remnant of the vitelline circulation, which carries the arterial supply to the Meckel diverticulum. In the event of an error of involution, a patent or nonpatent arterial band persists and extends from the mesentery to the apex of the antimesenteric diverticulum. This creates a snare-like opening through which bowel loops may herniate and become obstructed. This report describes 2 rare cases of small bowel occlusion owing to an internal hernia caused by a MDB...

BACKGROUND: Myofascial trigger points (MTrP's) are a primary source of pain in patients with musculoskeletal disorders. Nevertheless, they are frequently underdiagnosed. Reliable MTrP palpation is the necessary for their diagnosis and treatment. The few studies that have looked for intra-tester reliability of MTrPs detection in upper body, provide preliminary evidence that MTrP palpation is reliable. Reliability tests for MTrP palpation on the lower limb have not yet been performed. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate inter- and intra-tester reliability of MTrP recognition in hip and thigh muscles...

BACKGROUND: Fibromyalgia (FM) is a disabling chronic pain syndrome with unknown pathophysiology. Functional magnetic resonance imaging studies on FM have suggested altered brain connectivity between the insula and the default mode network (DMN). However, this connectivity change has not been characterized through direct neural signals for exploring the embedded spectrotemporal features and the pertinent clinical relevance. METHODS: We recorded the resting-state magnetoencephalographic activities of 28 patients with FM and 28 age- and sex-matched controls, and analyzed the source-based functional connectivity between the insula and the DMN at 1-40 Hz by using the minimum norm estimates and imaginary coherence methods...

BACKGROUND: Fibromyalgia syndrome (FM) is a chronic pain disorder characterized by widespread pain, sleep disturbance, fatigue and cognitive/affective symptoms. Functional imaging studies have revealed that FM and other chronic pain syndromes can affect resting brain activity. This study utilized electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings to investigate the relative power of ongoing oscillatory activity in the resting brain. METHODS: A 64-channel EEG was recorded at rest in 19 female FM patients and 18 healthy, age-matched, control subjects...

INTRODUCTION: Sleeve fractures of the patella are rare fractures that only occur in children. The diagnosis is difficult both clinically and radiologically since the distal bony fragment may be too small to be detectable by radiography. A high-riding patella and hemarthrosis are important signs of sleeve fractures. CASE REPORT: A 12-year-old boy was admitted to the emergency room after having felt a severe pain in his left knee on kicking the ground while skateboarding earlier that day...

The objective of this study was to determine factors that influence tenderness independent of variation in pH, color, or marbling. To achieve the objective, 2 sample groups were chosen from a population of 159 pork loins aged 11 to 16 d. Predetermined ranges (ultimate pH, 5.54 to 5.86; marbling score, 1.0 to 3.0; percent total lipid, 1.61 to 3.37%) were defined for inclusion of individual loins in the study. The pork loins with the greatest ( = 12) and least ( = 12) Instron star probe values were assigned to 2 classification groups...

BACKGROUND: A forearm band is frequently used for lateral epicondylitis worldwide. However, evidence regarding its efficacy has been insufficient. The objective of this prospective, randomized, controlled trial was to analyze the effects of a forearm band for treatment of lateral epicondylitis at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months. METHODS: Patients with lateral epicondylitis were randomly allocated into a band (n = 55) or non-band (n = 55) group. Patients in the band group were instructed to wear a forearm band for more than 6 h daily for at least 6 months...
