Marco Bertoni, Giorgio Brunello
The "Retired Husband Syndrome", that affects the mental health of wives of retired men around the world, has been anecdotally documented but never formally investigated. Using Japanese micro-data and the exogenous variation across cohorts in the maximum age of guaranteed employment induced by a 2006 Japanese reform, we estimate that the husband's earlier retirement significantly increases the probability that the wife reports symptoms related to the syndrome. We also find that retirement has a negative effect both on the household's economic situation and on the husband's own mental health, and that the higher economic distress contributes to reducing the wife's mental health...

A forty-year-old man is brought to the emergency room by his wife at five in the morning, two hours after he fell down the stairs at home, hitting his head and injuring his arm. He tells the ER physician that he got up to get a drink of water and tripped in the dark. His speech is slurred, and he smells strongly of alcohol. Lab results reveal elevated liver enzymes, and his blood alcohol level is 0.1. His medical history is unremarkable. When asked about his alcohol consumption, he says he usually has one or two drinks a night with dinner but that he drinks more on holidays and special occasions...

On December 1, 2015, the Puerto Rico Department of Health (PRDH) was notified by a local hospital of a suspected human rabies case. The previous evening, a Puerto Rican man aged 54 years arrived at the emergency department with fever, difficulty swallowing, hand paresthesia, cough, and chest tightness. The next morning the patient left against medical advice but returned to the emergency department in the afternoon with worsening symptoms. The patient's wife reported that he had been bitten by a mongoose during the first week of October, but had not sought care for the bite...

OBJECTIVES: To elicit widowed fathers' perspectives on which domains of parenting-related communication they consider most important for dying parents to discuss at the end of life (EOL). METHODS: Two hundred seventy nine fathers widowed by cancer completed a survey about their own depression and bereavement symptoms, their wife's illness, and EOL parental communication priorities. Chi square and Fisher's exact tests and logistic regression were used to evaluate relationships between maternal EOL characteristics and fathers' responses to parenting-related EOL communication priorities...

OBJECTIVES: Increasingly, older adults are experiencing divorce, yet little is known about the risk factors associated with divorce after age 50 (termed "gray divorce"). Guided by a life course perspective, our study examined whether key later life turning points are related to gray divorce. METHOD: We used data from the 1998-2012 Health and Retirement Study to conduct a prospective, couple-level discrete-time event history analysis of the antecedents of gray divorce...

BACKGROUND: With the end of 35 years of the one-child policy in China, the second-child policy presents a challenge for maternity hospitals. We aimed to inform configuration of medical resources by investigating willingness to have a second child in women with risk factors for adverse pregnancy outcomes. METHODS: We did a cross-sectional study in two hospitals in Zhejiang province, China. We surveyed women aged 30-45 years with gynecological disease (6000 in a university hospital and 6000 in a county hospital) by questionnaire, between January and April, 2016...

OBJECTIVE: To identify a genetic basis for markedly reduced bone density and multiple fractures in an adult patient with hypophosphatemia and hypercalciuria. SUBJECTS: A 54-year-old Vietnamese man, his unaffected two daughters and wife. METHODS: We performed biochemical studies and sequenced the SLC34A3 gene using genomic DNA from peripheral blood mononuclear cells. RESULTS: Biochemical evaluation of the proband revealed hypophosphatemia with increased renal phosphate wasting, hypercalciuria, low serum parathyroid hormone (PTH) and an elevated serum 1,25(OH)2D level...

Portal decompression is an approach for reducing portal overflow caused by small-for-size syndrome. We report the case of a patient who recovered from rapidly progressing hyperbilirubinemia caused by a small graft by decompressing portal overflow with splenic artery embolization following a living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). The patient was a 54-year-old man with end-stage liver disease secondary to alcoholic liver cirrhosis; the donor was his 54-year-old wife. The graft volume of the left lobe was 444 mL, which was 34...

OBJECTIVE: The present study adds to extant literature on the association between microfinance participation and intimate partner violence (IPV) by assessing a national sample of men married to microfinance participants. The key objective was to assess whether there was a positive association between wives' microfinance participation and men's perpetration and justification of IPV in urban areas of Bangladesh. STUDY DESIGN: This study is based on a population-based secondary data analysis...

BACKGROUND: Paraplegia is mainly caused by spinal cord disease and rarely occurs due to head trauma. In this report, we describe a case of paraplegia caused by cerebral contusions in the bilateral precentral gyri. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 72-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with mildly impaired consciousness and severe pure motor paralysis in both legs. He was healthy until the morning of the day, but his wife found him injured in front of his house upon returning home...

Alport syndrome is a progressive renal disease caused by mutations in COL4A3, COL4A4, and COL4A5 genes that encode collagen type IV alpha 3, alpha 4, and alpha 5 chains, respectively. Because of abnormal collagen chain, glomerular basement membrane becomes fragile and most of the patients progress to end-stage renal disease in early adulthood. COL4A5 mutation causes X-linked form of Alport syndrome, and two mutations in either COL4A3 or COL4A4 causes an autosomal recessive Alport syndrome. Recently, renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) blockade has been shown to attenuate effectively disease progression in Alport syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Violence against women perpetrated by an intimate partner (IPV) is prevalent in low- and middle-income countries (LAMIC). The aim was to describe the attitudes of women and men towards perpetration of physical violence to women by an intimate partner, in a large group of low- and middle-income countries. METHODS AND FINDINGS: We used data from Round Four of the UNICEF Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys. Attitudes towards IPV against women were assessed by a study-specific scale asking if 'wife beating' is justified in any of five circumstances...

INTRODUCTION: HIV infection is frequently transmitted within stable couple partnerships. In order to prevent HIV acquisition in HIV-negative couples, as well as improve coping in couples with an HIV-positive diagnosis, it has been suggested that interventions be aimed at strengthening couple relationships, in addition to addressing individual behaviours. However, little is known about factors that influence relationships to impact joint decision-making related to HIV. METHODS: We conducted qualitative in-depth interviews with 40 pregnant women and 40 male partners in southwestern Kenya, an area of high HIV prevalence...

The patient was an-85-year-old man with hypertension and hyperlipidemia. The patient had a history of faintness on standing. He visited our hospital after experiencing chest oppression and pre-syncope in 2015. Brain magnetic resonance imaging and echocardiography did not detect any structural brain or heart disease. Ischemic heart disease was suspected based on the myocardial scintigraphy findings, but coronary angiography revealed no unusual findings. Holter electrocardiography did not reveal the reason for his symptoms...

Hilde Jakobsen
Survey data show that most Tanzanian women find wife-beating justifiable. What is the meaning of the violence that enjoys such broad social approval? Does respect for women's agency invalidate feminist opposition to wife-beating? I explore these questions by analyzing data on hegemonic norms generated through 27 focus group discussions in Arumeru and Kigoma-Vijijini districts, and find that wife-beating was supported for its role in constituting social order. This analysis of how exactly violence can constitute order yielded insights into the interplay between violence and consent that are theoretically relevant to violence against women in other forms and contexts, reminding researchers and practitioners of the role of power and coercion in supposedly agreed-upon community norms...
