BACKGROUND: Sciatic neuralgia (SN) is a type of pain commonly associated with lumbosacral radiculopathy. May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) is a disease characterized by venous congestion in the left common iliac vein (LCIV) due to right common iliac artery compression. In this report, the authors describe a case of MTS with SN as the first presenting symptom. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 53-year-old man gradually developed left SN; however, radiological examination showed no causal findings...

Reflex sympathetic dystrophy is a subtype of complex regional pain syndrome, a condition characterized by persistent post-injury extremity pain. Temperature and sweating changes, edema, mobility changes, and a variety of hair, nail, and skin sequelae have been described. Only 23 articles published since 1990 describe dermatologic changes in CRPS. Given this paucity of literature, we present a case to further elucidate cutaneous manifestations of CRPS. Our patient is a 52-year-old Caucasian woman with a 19-year history of reflex sympathetic dystrophy who has presented with several dermatologic complaints...

We summarize the case of an 81-year-old Caucasian female who presented to her family physician with signs and symptoms of nephrotic syndrome following a brief exposure to quinine. Prior to that visit, she was clinically well with no chronic medical ailments and met with her family physician for annual physical assessments. She had taken 11 tablets of quinine for nocturnal leg cramps over the course of 28 days before starting to notice mild peripheral edema, which subsequently progressed, leading to a family physician review...

INTRODUCTION: Phlegmasia cerulea dolens (PCD) is a rare complication of deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Massive ileo-femoral DVT is usually the cause and prompt treatment is mandatory as it represents a medical emergency. Reported amputation rates range from 12% to 25% and mortality ranges from 25% to 40%. Limb ischemia results from obstruction to arterial inflow secondary to extreme levels of venous hypertension. Primary treatment goal is restoration of venous outflow and can be achieved by endovascular or surgical techniques...

INTRODUCTION: Hibernoma is a very rare benign tumor that arises from vestigial remnants of fetal brown adipose cells and usually manifests as a slowly growing, painless soft-tissue mass. It mainly occurs in adults, in the third and fourth decade of life, slightly more in women and is commonly seen in the subcutaneous regions of the back, neck, thighs and retroperitoneum. It was originally described in 1906 by Merkel, who named it "pseudolipoma". In 1914, Gery derived the name hibernoma from the tumor's histological similarity to brown fat in hibernating animals...

We describe a patient with history of dextro-transposition of the great vessels, ventricular septal defect, and pulmonary valve replacement who presented with fatigue, prolonged fever, and leg edema. He was found to have kidney injury, pancytopenia, and liver congestion. Echocardiogram revealed thickened leaflets with prolapsing vegetation on the pulmonary valve. Given the negative blood cultures, high Bartonella henselae immunogobulin G titer (≥1:1024) and positive immunoglobulin M titer (≥1:20), he was diagnosed with Bartonella endocarditis complicated with glomerulonephritis...

The main adverse effects of dopaminergic drugs used in Parkinson's disease are hypotension, somnolence, hallucinations and impulse control disorder. Less common is leg edema. We report on a 68-year-old male receiving levodopa and pramipexole consulting for severe leg edema lasting two years, whose etiology was not ascertained with multiple lab tests. This edema subsided substantially when pramipexole was discontinued and the dose of levodopa was increased to treat motor symptoms.

Purulent pericarditis is a rare disease in the antibiotic era. The common pathogens of purulent pericarditis are gram-positive species such as Staphylococcus aureus. Streptococcus pneumoniae, Salmonella, Haemophilus, fungal pathogens/tuberculosis can also result in purulent pericarditis. We report an old male case of purulent pericarditis by Escherichia coli. He came to our hospital suffering from leg edema for 3 months. Echocardiography revealed the large amount of pericardial effusion, and he was admitted to test the cause of pericardial effusion without high fever, tachycardia, and shock vital signs...

Sustained elimination of leprosy as a global health concern likely requires a vaccine. The current standard, BCG, confers only partial protection and precipitates paucibacillary (PB) disease in some instances. When injected into mice with the T helper 1 (Th1)-biasing adjuvant formulation Glucopyranosyl Lipid Adjuvant in stable emulsion (GLA-SE), a cocktail of three prioritized antigens (ML2055, ML2380 and ML2028) reduced M. leprae infection levels. Recognition and protective efficacy of a single chimeric fusion protein incorporating these antigens, LEP-F1, was confirmed in similar experiments...

Metal-on-metal (MoM) total hip arthroplasty (THA) can be associated with adverse metal reactions, including pseudotumors. This case report describes a 58-year-old female with an MoM THA-related pseudotumor that caused unilateral leg edema from compression of her external iliac vein. After thorough preoperative workup to rule out infection and deep vein thrombosis and consultation with a vascular surgeon, the patient underwent revision THA and excision of her pseudotumor. She had complete resolution of her swelling at 4 years after surgery...

BACKGROUND: Syphilis is a sexually transmitted infection that was nearly eradicated in 2001 but is now making a resurgence. It has a wide range of clinical manifestations depending on disease stage. Neurosyphilis is an infrequently seen infectious disease with central nervous system involvement that can occur in either early- or late-stage syphilis. The diagnosis of neurosyphilis is challenging, primarily because Treponema pallidum, the infecting organism, cannot be cultured in vitro...

On October 17, 1849, Poland's greatest composer, Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849) died aged 39. His cause of death remains unknown. An investigation of the documental sources was performed to reconstruct the medical history of the artist. Since his earliest years, his life had been dominated by poor health. Recurrent episodes of cough, fever, headaches, lymphadenopathy- a series of symptoms that may be attributed to viral respiratory infections- manifested in his teens. Later in life, he had chest pain, hemoptysis, hematemesis, neuralgia, and arthralgia...

Seyedali Sadeghi, Cassidy Newman, Daniel H Cortes
Long-distance running competitions impose a large amount of mechanical loading and strain leading to muscle edema and delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Damage to various muscle fibers, metabolic impairments and fatigue have been linked to explain how DOMS impairs muscle function. Disruptions of muscle fiber during DOMS exacerbated by exercise have been shown to change muscle mechanical properties. The objective of this study is to quantify changes in mechanical properties of different muscles in the thigh and lower leg as function of running distance and time after competition...

It is unclear whether the superiority of eccentric over concentric training on neuromuscular improvements is due to higher torque (mechanical loading) achievable during eccentric contractions or due to resulting greater total work. PURPOSE: To examine neuromuscular adaptations following maximal eccentric versus concentric training matched for total work. METHODS: Twelve males conducted single-joint isokinetic (180°/s) maximal eccentric contractions of the knee extensors in one leg (ECC-leg) and concentric in the other (CON-leg), 6 sets/session (3-5 sets in the initial 1-3 sessions), 2 sessions/week for 10 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary embolism occurs when a blood thrombus forms and travels from a vein in the body to an artery in the lung. Thrombi often develop in one of the deep veins of the legs, thighs, or pelvis, a condition known as deep vein thrombosis. In this report, we describe a rare instance of a patient who developed deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism secondary to urinary retention, and we also review some of the literature. CASE PRESENTATION: A 75-year-old Japanese man visited our hospital with the complaint of lower extremity weakness...

Objective: The aim of the present study is to report on the reduction of edema of lymphedematous arms just by treating the lower limbs. Methods: A 16-year-old girl reported that she has started having right lower limb edema at the age of three. At age 13, she performed a lymphoscintigraphy that confirmed the diagnosis of primary lymphedema of the four limbs. Recently she sought treatment at the Clínica Godoy in São Jose do Rio Preto where she was submitted to intensive treatment for eight hours per day for five days using manual (Godoy & Godoy technique) and mechanical lymphatic therapy (RA Godoy® ) of the lower limbs, cervical lymphatic therapy (cervical stimulation), and the continuous use of a grosgrain stocking...
