UNLABELLED: Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) is an electrophysiological disorder of a physically normal heart that occurs in children when the body is subjected to intense emotional or physical stress that causes adrenergic discharge. This troubling disease can be sporadic (spontaneous) or familial (genetic/inherited). Unfortunately, its associated ventricular tachycardia may cause sudden death, so early diagnosis of CPVT is very important. Treatment modalities include medical treatment, implantation of a cardioverter defibrillator, or surgical sympatectomy; but the implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) should be the first choice in patients with a history of cardiac arrest...

UNLABELLED: Numerous studies show that changes occurring in a woman's organism during menopause may lower her quality of life. This study involved 630 healthy postmenopausal women from Poland. Its purpose was to assess their quality of life in relation to socio-demographic variables, medical data and personality profiles. The authors used the Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) to assess quality of life, the NEO-Five Factor Inventory to measure personality traits, and the Blatt-Kupperman Menopausal Index to estimate severity of climacteric symptoms...

We report a case of dermatomyositis (DM) with hemophagocytic syndrome (HPS). The patient is a 60 year old male admitted to our hospital with muscle weakness, high fever, weight loss and pancytopenia. On physical examination, proximal muscle weakness and skin rash on the back were noted. Laboratory data revealed elevated serum levels of muscle enzymes, lactate dehydrogenase and ferritin. Serum levels of M-CSF, TNF-alpha, soluble IL 2 receptor were remarkably increased. Bone marrow aspiration showed histiocytosis of 7 to 10% with prominent hemophagocytosis...

Rare Diseases (RD) form a new chapter of Medicine which consists of more than 5.000 different diseases. RD have low prevalence (less than 5/10.000), chronic and severe evolution and usually produce serious alteration of quality of life and relationships with physical and social environment. The scarce number of patients with each RD produces very limited interest in research, specially in theraphy. "Orphan drugs" are useful drugs for treating some RD, and in spite of this they are not made because the low number of patients...

Chronic musculoskeletal pain is becoming increasingly common in young athletes. When these athletes do not respond well to standard treatments, for example physical theraphy and anti-inflammatories, other diagnoses must be considered, such as reflex sympathetic dystrophy, fibromyalgia, and/or overtraining syndrome.

A case of left atrial myxoma with repeated multiple cerebral emboli is reported. A-44-year-old man first developed a sudden right hemiparesis in October 1969. After intensive physical theraphy, strength improved and he was able to return to his work. In March 1970, he suddenly lost consciousness and remained comatose for a day. Upon waking, he had a profound right hemiparesis, motor aphasia and Gerstmann's syndrome. He was admitted to Hiroshima City Hospital on August 1, 1970. The cardiac examination, including an electrocardiogram, was entirely normal...
