Well-written and transparent case reports (1) reveal early signals of potential benefits, harms, and information on the use of resources; (2) provide information for clinical research and clinical practice guidelines (CPGs), and (3) inform medical education. High-quality case reports are more likely when authors follow reporting guidelines. During 2011-2012 a group of clinicians, researchers, and journal editors developed recommendations for the accurate reporting of information in case reports that resulted in the CARE (CAse REport) Statement and Checklist...

Clozapine has proved to be an effective antipsychotic for the treatment of refractory schizophrenia - characterised by the persistence of symptoms despite optimal treatment trials with at least two different antipsychotics at adequate dose and duration - but its use is hampered by adverse effects. The development of clozapine-induced diabetes is commonly considered to arise as part of a metabolic syndrome, associated with weight gain, and thus evolves slowly. We present the case of an individual with refractory schizophrenia and metformin-controlled diabetes who developed rapid-onset insulin-dependent hyperglycaemia immediately after starting clozapine...

Osteosarcoma is a primeval disease which is still partly understood. It is a malignancy of mesenchymal cells that have the capacity to generate osteoid or immature bone. There have been an abundance of debate and controversies about the nature, aggressiveness, behavior, and various treatment modalities of this entity. Different histologic variation has been common in osteosarcoma; hence multiple diagnostic approaches are vital in all cases. Detection of precise anatomic and histologic variants is of prime importance in view of better outcome...

BACKGROUND: Juvenile ossifying fibroma (JOF) is a benign fibro-osseous lesion that can be locally aggressive. It is typically treated with surgical excision. A few cases using adjuvant radiotherapy have been reported in the literature. METHODS: We report a case of JOF treated with surgical excision and adjuvant radiotherapy to minimize the risk of local recurrence. We also review the literature. RESULTS: Our patient tolerated radiotherapy without complication and had not experienced a local recurrence at the time of writing this manuscript...

The main complaints in extensor tendon dislocations are pain, swelling, sense of discomfort, snapping and difficulty in writing and forceful flexion. However, congenital extensor tendon subluxations may present with triggering of the fingers due to tendon dislocations. Unnecessary A1 pulley release may be performed for pseudotriggerring with unsuccessful results. Here, we report an unusual case of congenital extensor tendon subluxation of multiple digits with triggering of the left little finger and aim to attract notice to pseudotriggering of the digits due to tendon dislocations...

BACKGROUND: Medical certificates influence the distribution of economic benefits in welfare states; however, the qualitative aspects of these texts remain largely unexplored. The present study is the first systematic investigation done of these texts. Our aim was to investigate how GPs select and mediate information about their patients' health and how they support their conclusions about illness, functioning and fitness for work in medical certificates. METHODS: We performed a textual analysis of thirty-three medical certificates produced by general practitioners (GP) in Norway at the request of the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV)...

This report describes two patients with sporadic lymphangioleiomyomatosis complicated by protein-losing enteropathy (PLE). Imaging studies indicated retroperitoneal lymphangioleiomyomas and abnormalities of the adjacent digestive tract. Endoscopic mucosal biopsy revealed colonic lymphangiectasia in one patient; whereas the site in the other patient was intestinal. Treatment with sirolimus led to the complete resolution of PLE within several months; additionally, marked shrinkage was observed in the lymphangioleiomyomas of both cases...

In this paper we report different methods to improve the stray light performance of binary spectrometer gratings fabricated by electron beam lithography. In particular, we report the optimization concerns about spurious stray light peaks, also known as "Rowland ghosts". As already known these Rowland ghosts arise from a non-optimized stitching process of special subareas needed in order to fabricate large area gratings. One approach to reduce the impact of the stitching errors is the technique of "multi-pass-exposure" (MPE)...

INTRODUCTION: The electronic medical record (EMR) is standard in institutions. While there is not concern for legibility of notes and access to charts, there is an ease of copy and paste for daily notes. This may not lead to accurate portrayal of patient's status. Our purpose was to evaluate the use of copy and paste functions in daily notes of patients with injuries at high risk for complications. METHODS: IRB approval was obtained for a retrospective review. Inclusion criteria included patients aged 18 and older treated at our Level 1 Trauma Center after implementation of Epic Systems Corporation, Verona, WI, USA...

We report a 28-year-old female who presented with severe joint pain, chronic muscle weakness, Raynaud's phenomenon, and hypermobility. She was found to have a 6074A > T nucleotide transition in the TNXB gene causing an amino acid protein change at Asp2025Val classified as likely pathogenic. We add this clinical report to the literature and classical human disease gene catalogs to identify this specific mutation as disease-causing. This gene variant was reported previously in a different 36-year-old patient who shared our patient's symptoms of joint hypermobility, skeletal and joint pain, skin elasticity and musculoskeletal problems, thereby causing a more severe presentation than seen in the hypermobility type of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS)...

Writing a manuscript for a medical journal is very akin to writing a newspaper article-albeit a scholarly one. Like any journalist, you have a story to tell. You need to tell your story in a way that is easy to follow and makes a compelling case to the reader. Although recommended since the beginning of the 20th century, the conventional Introduction-Methods-Results-And-Discussion (IMRAD) scientific reporting structure has only been the standard since the 1980s. The Introduction should be focused and succinct in communicating the significance, background, rationale, study aims or objectives, and the primary (and secondary, if appropriate) study hypotheses...
