BACKGROUND: Musculoskeletal conditions involving the shoulder are common and, because of the importance of the upper limb and hand in daily function, symptoms in this region are commonly associated with functional impairment in athletic and non-athletic populations. Deriving a definitive diagnosis as to the cause of shoulder symptoms is fraught with difficulty. Limitations have been recognised for imaging and for orthopaedic special tests. 1 solution is to partially base management on the response to tests aimed at reducing the severity of the patient's perception of symptoms...

Elastofibroma is a benign tumor of the musculoskeletal system characterized by the abnormal accumulation of elastinophilic fibers. It has been classically described for subscapular region but has been reported in several musculoskeletal sites over the years and rarely even in the GI tract but never in pancreas. We therefore present the case of a 45-year-old female who presented with intermittent abdominal pain. CT of abdomen revealed 1.4 cm pancreatic neck lesion without peripancreatic lymphadenopathy. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided FNA was nondiagnostic...

Venipuncture is one of the most commonly done medical procedures. We report a unique case of a 23-year-old young male who presented with features suggestive of inflammatory arthritis. The symptoms, which initially started on the right side, also involved the other side after a few weeks. Although the patient's symptoms and signs were simulating inflammatory arthritis, he had atypical features like poor response to anti-inflammatory medicines and normal laboratory parameters. His musculoskeletal ultrasonography was also not suggestive of arthritis...

Foot and ankle disorders are common in everyday clinical practice. MR imaging is frequently required for diagnosis given the variety and complexity of foot and ankle anatomy. Although conventional MR imaging plays a significant role in diagnosis, contemporary management increasingly relies on advanced imaging for monitoring therapeutic response. There is an expanding need for identification of biomarkers for musculoskeletal tissues. Advanced imaging techniques capable of imaging these tissue substrates will be increasingly used in routine clinical practice...

: Early osteopathic theory and practice, and the work of the medical intuitive Edgar Cayce suggested that the abdominal areas of individuals with epilepsy would manifest "cold spots." The etiology for this phenomenon was thought to be abdominal adhesions caused by inflammation and viscero-somatic reflexes caused by adhesions or injury to visceral or musculoskeletal system structures. Indeed, until that advent of electroencephalography in the 1930s, medical practice regarding epilepsy focused on abdominal neural and visceral structures...

BACKGROUND: Sporting activities can cause injuries and overuse injuries of the extremities (OIE) in children have been shown to be more common than injuries caused by trauma. The lower extremity is more frequently affected than the upper extremity in OIE, but it is not known whether injury site and diagnosis vary in different sporting activities. PURPOSE: To identify any differences between sports in relation to diagnoses and anatomical areas most likely to be injured...

S M Ali, S Subramaniam
Inferior lumbar hernias are uncommon hernias resulting from a defect in the abdominal wall. They can occur during infancy (congenital defect), albeit less frequently, or spontaneously after trauma or surgery with a lumbar incision. With fewer than 300 cases reported over the past 3 centuries, clinical diagnosis is often confusing owing to non-specific symptoms, relating to the gastrointestinal, genitourinary or musculoskeletal systems. We present a case of an inferior lumbar hernia following spontaneous rupture of a retrocaecally tracked appendicular abscess and a brief literature review...

INTRODUCTION: Clinical presentation of Eagle syndrome (ES) is very variable and non-specific, making its diagnosis difficult. It is usually limited to pain. Transient neurological manifestations are exceptional. We report one case in which the diagnosis of ES has been made based on neurological events occurring during left anterolateral head bending, without pain. OBSERVATION: A 47-year-old man presented with transient neurological events progressing since two years, half-right body paresthesia and reduced field of vision on the left side type, triggered by left anterolateral head flexion and regressive in neutral position...

Patients diagnosed with breast cancer may have supportive care needs for many years after diagnosis. High quality multidisciplinary care can help address these needs and reduce the physical and psychological effects of breast cancer and its treatment. Ovarian suppression and extended endocrine therapy benefits are associated with vasomotor, musculoskeletal, sexual and bone density-related side effects. Aromatase inhibitor musculoskeletal syndrome is a common reason for treatment discontinuation. Treatment strategies include education, exercise, simple analgesia and a change to tamoxifen or another aromatase inhibitor...
