Abstract Leprosy is a chronic neglected and stigmatizing disease. Due to involvement of the peripheral nerves, it can result in physical disabilities, deformities, and emotional damage if not diagnosed and treated promptly. This is the case of a young patient with testicular pain and swelling and no improvement after a specific therapeutic scheme for tuberculosis. Clinical and laboratory reevaluation revealed hypoesthetic skin patches associated with post-burn crusted ulcers on the left arm, thickening of ulnar nerves, atrophy of interosseous muscles of the hands, positive skin smear microscopy, and testicular histopatholo...

Conclusion It is apparent that athletes will be exposed to various stressors during both the preparatory and competition phases of the Summer Games. Athletes residing in the southern hemisphere appear to be at increased risk for illness during the preparatory phase, while female, Paralympic, water-sport and multi-competition/event athletes may be more susceptible to illness during the competition phase of the Summer Games. To maintain athlete health, illness prevention strategies should be targeted to stressors and at-risk athletes. Keeping athletes healthy will contribute to optimal Olympic and Paralympic athletic perfor...

Hancock* Department of Psychology, Institute for Simulation and Training, University of Central, Orlando, FL, United States Introduction This present article considers the nature and impact of the vital contributions of Raja Parasuraman and the way in which his brain-child–neuroergonomics–has begun to flourish and blossom in our contemporary world. By unlocking the secrets of brain activity and then finding mechanisms and technologies to elaborate such processes more directly into the world, he has provided us with a clear vision for the future of human-machine interaction. However, it alwa...
