OBJECTIVE: Malaria is an infectious disease caused by Plasmodium parasite. Sporadic cases have not been observed in Turkey since 2010, but imported malaria cases are still prevalent owing to migration. The present study aimed to evaluate Plasmodium falciparum malaria in patients hospitalized in our hospital. METHODS: A total of 15 adult patients (14 males and 1 female) who were diagnosed with malaria and who were managed at our clinic between January 2011 and 2017 were evaluated retrospectively for their epidemiological, clinical, and laboratory findings; treatment; and prognosis...

BACKGROUND: Predictive tables and scoring systems can predict stone clearance. However, there is a paucity of evidence regarding the prediction of complications during percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), particularly in children, which remains under-researched. To our knowledge, no studies have evaluated the risk factors for febrile urinary tract infection (FUTI) after pediatric PCNL. OBJECTIVES: To assess the predictive factors of FUTI in prepubertal children after PCNL and determine whether any prophylactic cephalosporins are superior for decreasing the FUTI rate...

Cyanidiophytina are a group of polyextremophilic red algae with a worldwide, but discontinuous colonization. They are restricted to widely dispersed hot springs, geothermal habitats, and also some human-altered environments. Cyanidiophytina are predominant where pH is prohibitive for the majority of eukaryotes (pH 0.5-3). Turkey is characterized by areas rich in volcanic activity separated by non-volcanic areas. Here we show that Cyanidiophycean populations are present in thermal baths located around Turkey on neutral/alkaline soils...

In a Turkish League Against Rheumatism (TLAR) project, evidence-based recommendations for the management of knee osteoarthritis (OA) was developed for the first time in our country in 2012 (TLAR-2012). In accordance with developing medical knowledge and scientific evidence, recommendations were updated. The committee was composed of 22 physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists (4 have rheumatology subspeciality also) and an orthopaedic surgeon. Systematic literature search were applied on Pubmed, Embase, Cochrane and Turkish Medical Index for the dates between January the 1st 2012 and January the 29th of 2015...

Objective: The current rearrangement ratio of BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes is not known in the Turkish population. Rearrangements are not routinely investigated in many Turkish laboratories. This creates problems and contradictions between clinics. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the distribution and frequency of rearrangements in BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes in high-risk families and to clarify the limits of BRCA1 and BRCA2 testing in Turkey. Materials and Methods: The study included 1809 patients at high risk of breast cancer or ovarian cancer...

Felippe Felix, Marcia Gonçalves Ribeiro, Shiro Tomita, Mariano Gustavo Zalis
INTRODUCTION: In different parts of the world, mutations in the GJB2 gene are associated with nonsyndromic hearing loss, and the homozygous 35delG mutation (p.Gly12Valfs*2) is a major cause of hereditary hearing loss. However, the 35delG mutation is not equally prevalent across ethnicities, making it important to study other mutations, especially in multiethnic countries such as Brazil. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to identify different mutations in the GJB2 gene in patients with severe to profound nonsyndromic sensorineural hearing loss of putative genetic origin, and who were negative or heterozygote for the 35delG mutation...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the blood lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd) levels in age related macular degeneration (AMD) in a turkish urban population. METHODS: Blood Pb and Cd levels of 31 AMD patients and 24 age and gender matched controls with no sign of AMD were measured using dual atomic absorption spectrophotometer system (AAS). History of hypertension, diabetes mellitus, cigarette smoking, myocardial infarction and stroke were obtained from all subjects. Degree of AMD was grade 4 according to the Age-Related Eye Disease Study grading system...

PURPOSE: Poikiloderma with neutropenia (PN) is a genodermatosis currently described in 77 patients, all presenting with early-onset poikiloderma, neutropenia, and several additional signs. Biallelic loss-of-function mutations in USB1 gene are detected in all molecularly tested patients but genotype-phenotype correlation remains elusive. Cancer predisposition is recognized among PN features and pathogenic variants found in patients who developed early in life myelodysplasia (n = 12), acute myeloid leukemia (n = 2), and squamous cell carcinoma (n = 2) should be kept into account in management and follow-up of novel patients...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the prognostic value of lymph node ratio (LNR) in women with stage IIIC endometrioid endometrial cancer (EC). METHODS: A multicenter, retrospective department database review was performed to identify patients with stage IIIC pure endometrioid EC at 6 gynecologic oncology centers in Turkey. A total of 207 women were included. LNR, defined as the percentage of positive lymph nodes (LNs) to total nodes recovered, was stratified into 2 groups: LNR1 (≤0...

As in almost every country in the world, street foods are frequently used in Turkey. To determine the preferences for these foods, a questionnaire was given to 847 individuals constituted by randomly selected high school and university students. Of the participants, 43.4% were male and 56.6% were female; the majority of them were between 19 and 22 years of age. It was found that 40.1% of the young people ate street food 2-3 times per week, whereas 23.3% were found to eat it every day. Turkish bagels, döner, boiled corn in a cup and toast are most preferred street foods...

Limb girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) type 2G is a rare form of muscle disease, described only in a few patients worldwide, caused by mutations in TCAP gene, encoding the protein telethonin. It is characterised by proximal limb muscle weakness associated with distal involvement of lower limbs, starting in the first or second decade of life. We describe the case of a 37-year-old woman of Greek origin, affected by disto-proximal lower limb weakness. No cardiac or respiratory involvement was detected. Muscle biopsy showed myopathic changes with type I fibre hypotrophy, cytoplasmic vacuoles, lipid overload, multiple central nuclei and fibre splittings; ultrastructural examination showed metabolic abnormalities...

AIM: Although it is well known that the occipital artery (OA) originates from the external carotid artery (ECA), the incidence of variations remains unknown. In our study, we investigated the prevalence of anomalously originating OA using angiography in a group of Turkish individuals.

Objective: In line with advances in diagnostic methods and expectation of a decrease in the number of negative laparotomies, selective non-operative management of abdominal gunshot wounds has been increasingly used over the last three decades. We aim to detect the possibility of treatment without surgery and present our experience in selected cases referred from Syria to a hospital at the Turkish-Syrian border. Material and Methods: Between February 2012 and June 2014, patients admitted with abdominal gunshot wounds were analyzed...

Capparis spinosa L. (caper), is a traditionally used medicinal plant and widely studied for its biological properties. We aimed for the first time to compare the biological and phenolic fingerprints of C. spinosa buds, collected from Morocco, Turkey, and Italy. Phenolic compounds, fatty acids, and essential oils were profiled by chromatographic techniques. Enzymes inhibitory activities of different extracts were tested by spectrophotometric methods. Antioxidant capacity was evaluated by different assays including free radical scavenging, reducing power, metal chelating and phosphomolybdenum...
