Primary immunodeficiencies (PI) are genetic defects of the immune system that result in chronic, serious, and often life-threatening infections, if not diagnosed and treated. Many patients with PI are undiagnosed, underdiagnosed, or misdiagnosed. In fact, recent studies have shown that PI may be more common than previously estimated and that as many as 1% of the population may be affected with a PI when all types and varieties are considered. In order to raise awareness of PI with the overall goal of reducing associated morbidity and mortality, the Jeffrey Modell Foundation (JMF) established a network of specialized centers that could better identify, diagnose, treat, and follow patients with PI disorders...

REVIEW
Peter Petros
The International Continence Society (ICS) committee has defined overactive bladder (OAB) as "a syndrome characterized by symptoms of urgency, with or without urgency incontinence, usually with increased daytime frequency and nocturia (increased night time urination). The term OAB can only be used if there is no proven infection or other obvious pathology". Though the ICS gives no anatomical basis for OAB, it is suggested that the cause is from the detrusor itself. In this review, urodynamic evidence is presented that OAB in the female may be a prematurely activated but normal micturition reflex, as predicted by the Integral Theory...

BACKGROUND: Urinary incontinence (UI) is defined by the International Continence Society (ICS) as the involuntary loss of urine that represents a hygienic or social problem to the individual. The aetiology is multifactorial. The diagnosis of UI is important because it can result in the application of appropriate therapy. Urodynamics is a golden standard, without which every UI diagnosis is insufficient. AIM: The goal of this study was, based on urodynamic results, to prove the existence of evident differences between the subtypes of UI...
