For SELF, by Korin Miller. Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe says that freezing her eggs "wasn't an easy process." Here's what you should know about what the procedure is actually like. More and more, women looking for options when it comes to their reproductive future have turned to egg freezing. In addition to the rise of “egg freezing parties” nationwide, some employers are even adding egg freezing to their benefits packages. But there are many myths about what freezing your eggs actually is like. So when former Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe recently referenced the toll that freezing her eggs has had on her body — she was quoted in a Good Morning America segment as saying that egg freezing “wasn’t an easy process” and tweeted that she was on “pain meds”; and her fiancé acknowledged her “strength &courage” in an Instagram post about her experience — it made some wonder: how hard on your body is freezing your eggs? Jaime Knopman, M.D., a board-certified reproductive endocrinologist and director of fertility preservation for the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine, New York, tells SELF that the actual egg freezing process is fairly straightforward. “There are many myths out there surrounding egg freezing — it is super painful, it will make me fat, and it will take several months,” she says. “These are all incorrect.” From start to finish, the egg f...

This study was aimed to compare the clinical profile and outcome in DF patients with or without skin involvement. Methods: This study included all the patients with DF from the acute febrile illness database of a tertiary care health centre in south India. These patients were further subgrouped into SP and SN (skin involvement positive and negative) based on the presence and absence of skin rash. Differences in clinical presentation, laboratory parameters, disease course, morbidity and outcome among patients with DF with or without skin rash were recorded and analysed statistically. Results: In total 387 patients (...

Authors: Aoki Y, Sakai Y, Kimura T, Yamaoka T, Maekawa S, Maekawa J, Sano M, Matsuno K, Ishibashi I Abstract Spontaneous renal artery dissection (SRAD) is a rare entity and the management of this disease has not been established. A 54-year-old man presented with severe flank pain, and contrast-enhanced computed tomography images suggested SRAD in his left renal artery. After two weeks of conservative treatment, stents were placed in the renal artery. The pre- and post-procedural renal function was independently assessed by renography. After stenting, his left renal function recovered from the renal failure pattern....

MDS-associated IBD frequently demonstrates a complicated course. We herein report the first case with MDS-associated IBD that was successfully treated with ustekinumab (UST), an anti-interleukin (IL) 12/23p40 monoclonal antibody. A 63-year-old man with a 7-year history of MDS was referred for examination of diarrhea,...

Authors: Ishimaru N, Kanzawa Y, Seto H, Kinami S Abstract We herein report a patient with syphilitic cervicitis and cervical cancer presenting as oropharyngeal syphilis. A 31-year-old Japanese woman with a history of unprotected vaginal and oral sex visited our hospital with right submandibular adenomas and erythema in the extremities. The fornix uteri was red, with a nodule noted. The rapid plasma reagin ratio was 1:3. She was diagnosed with syphilitic cervicitis and treated with amoxicillin for four weeks. Initial cervical cytology showed cells with mild nuclear enlargement, which was thought to be metaplasia ass...

We present a report of a 29-year-old woman with non-dipper type refractory hypertension due to the vascular compression of the medulla oblongata. The patient was diagnosed with hypertension at 17 years of age and underwent emergency Caesarean section at 26 weeks of gestation during 2 pregnancies due to severe high blood pressure. We suspected medullary compression by the curved posterior inferior cerebellar artery as the cause of her intractable hypertension, and she underwent Jannetta's decompression surgery. After the surgery, her blood pressure swiftly decreased to almost within the normal range, and her blood pressure ...

Authors: Fujita Y, Asano T, Sato S, Furuya MY, Temmoku J, Matsuoka N, Kobayashi H, Watanabe H, Suzuki E, Koga T, Endo Y, Kawakami A, Migita K Abstract We herein report a Japanese patient with familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) who developed the clinical manifestations of mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) and Sjögren's syndrome. The patient was a 36-year-old woman presenting with a periodic short-duration (2-3 days) fever and pleural pain. An MEFV gene analysis detected a complex allele mutation (P369S/R408Q) in exon 3 of the MEFV gene. Serological and clinical data showed the coexistence of MCTD and Sj&ou...

One year after the initial treatment, he developed anemia. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed irregularly elevated tumors in the lower anterior gastric body, which were diagnosed to be metastasis from HCC. Left gastric artery coil embolization was performed to prevent sustained bleeding, and his anemia par...
