Enterovirus (EV) 71 infection has been widely acknowledged as the leading cause of severe hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD), which may rapidly lead to fatal pulmonary edema. In this study, we established a mouse model for EV71 infection exhibiting high incidence of severe symptoms with pulmonary edema. Mast cells (MCs) accumulation, activation and allergic inflammation were found in the brains, lungs and skeletal muscle of mice after EV71 infection, especially in the lungs of mice. Levels of histamine, platelet-activating factor (PAF), interleukin (IL)-4, IL-5, IL-13, tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), nitric oxide (NO), endocrine gland-derived vascular endothelial growth factor (EG-VEGF) and noradrenaline (NA) were increased in EV71-infected lungs...

Imaging is important and essential for clinical practice in rheumatoid arthritis(RA). MRI and musculoskeletal ultrasonography(MSUS)are helpful to detect early as well as accurate joint injury of RA patients, and thus, potentially useful in early diagnosis, evaluating disease activity, therapeutic outcome and prediction of joint outcome. Articular synovitis, tenosynovitis and bone marrow edema are useful to predict RA progression. Bone marrow edema is closely associated with radiographic bone erosion. In addition, we are necessary to pay attention to the influence of aging that increases of MRI-detected joint changes, especially in hand and foot joints...

We have previously shown that phosphatidylglycerol (PG) regulates the function of keratinocytes, the predominant cells that comprise the epidermis, inhibiting the proliferation of rapidly dividing keratinocytes. In particular, soy PG, a PG mixture with a high proportion of polyunsaturated fatty acids, is efficacious at inhibiting these proliferating keratinocytes. Psoriasis is a skin disorder characterized by hyperproliferation of keratinocytes and inflammation. Data in the lung suggest that PG in pulmonary surfactant inhibits inflammation...

Introduction: Intracranial meningiomas account for 30% of all primary intracranial tumors. Surgical resection remains the mainstay of the treatment for meningiomas. The magnetic resonance of intracranial meningiomas has been largely discussed in many reports of the radiological and neurosurgical literature. To date, a few studies have been attempted to differentiate the tumor characteristics of meningiomas based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies. Objective: The objective of the study is to evaluate the relationship between MRI signal characteristics of intracranial meningiomas and consistency of tumor using objective measures...

A 42-yr-old female presented with an olfactory groove meningioma causing progressive vision loss and anosmia. Given the size of the tumor, we opted for a 2-stage surgery: endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA) followed by a craniotomy. Stage I surgery was a transcribriform transplanum EEA using a binostril 4-hand/2 surgeons (ENT and neuro) technique, with the patient positioned supine with the head slightly turned to the right side and tilted to the left, fixed in a 3-pin head clamp, under imaging guidance, in which we drilled out all the affected skull base bone, devascularized and debulked the tumor...

Sulfur mustard (SM) is an highly toxic and vesicant chemical weapon that was used in various military conflicts several times in the history. The severity of ocular, dermal, and pulmonary symptoms that may appear following a characteristic asymptomatic period are depending on the SM concentration and exposure duration. The aim of this study is to present the clinical features and share the intensive care unit (ICU) experiences for the medical management of mustard gas victims. Thirteen Free Syrian Army soldiers near Al-Bab region of North Syria were reportedly exposed to oily blackish smoke with garlic smell due to the explosion of a trapped bomb without causing any blast or thermal effect on 26th November 2016...

REVIEW
Nathan P Douglass, Amy L Ladd
The principles of hand therapy for proximal interphalangeal joint disorders include protecting injured structures, minimizing patient discomfort, and optimizing patient recovery. Comprehension of hand anatomy, the nature of the injury being treated, and the phases of healing are critical when designing a safe and effective hand therapy program. Hand therapists use a combination of orthoses, guided exercises, and modalities to improve edema, sensitivity, range of motion, and function.

BACKGROUND: Superficial temporal artery-middle cerebral artery (STA-MCA) anastomosis is the standard treatment for Moyamoya disease (MMD). Cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome is a potential complication of this procedure and can cause local vasogenic edema and/or delayed intracerebral hemorrhage. Cerebral hypoperfusion is a contradictory postoperative pathophysiological condition implicated in MMD, but its association with symptomatic local vasogenic edema has not been reported. CASE REPORT: A 31-year-old woman with MMD underwent left STA-MCA anastomosis 3 months after a minor completed stroke in bilateral hemispheres...
