Ladies, We Need To Talk About Our Vaginas
There are so many issues that women need to discuss that have nothing to do with pap smears.
Conclusion: Female genital tract involvement by pemphigus vulgaris usually occurs in the setting of extensive involvement at other sites, most notably the oral mucosa. Primary involvement of the genital mucosa is unusual. Confirmatory diagnosis is made with testing for autoantibodies, either with direct or indirect immunofluorescence or enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. PMID: 30226722 [PubMed - in process]
Evaluation of the effect of hemolysis, bilirubin, lipemy, glucosis and natrium on mean concentration of hemoglobin (XN 2000® Sysmex®). Ann Biol Clin (Paris). 2018 Oct 01;76(5):524-530 Authors: Désidéri-Vaillant C, Oye G, Appéré G, Carassou-Beauvais P, Pérennec V, Caron S, Sapin J, Corbé H, Berna A Abstract We evaluated the effect of haemolysis, bilirubin, lipemia, hyperglycemia and natremia on mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) measured by XN 2000® (Sysmex®). Our evaluation had shown than correction is necessary for haemolysis an...
ConclusionHelicobacter pylori eradication significantly increases platelet counts in adult ITP patients.
Urinary tract cytology is a common diagnostic test used in the initial work up of bladder cancer. Since its inception as an utilizable diagnostic technique by Dr. Papanicolaou in 1945, urinary cytology has proven to be a cheap, easily obtained, and accurate method in the detection of high-grade urothelial carcinoma. Despite readily agreed upon features of high-grade urothelial carcinoma, a reproducible, universally accepted reporting method has not been attained. The Paris System for Reporting Urinary Cytology was developed to bring about a standardized reporting system with specific diagnostic categories and clear cytomor...
Conclusion: A high prevalence of TB was found among newly diagnosed HIV-infected adults attending ART center for care and treatment. The prevalence of pulmonary and extrapulmonary TB was almost equal. Chances of TB disease were more with depletion of CD4 counts. The study highlights urgent need of intensive case finding as well as periodic screening of newly diagnosed HIV-infected individuals.
Conclusions: TB control program should be integrated with education improvement, a reduction of housing density index, and strengthened examinations of internal house contacts. These programs should be supported by health institutions and other related institutions. The findings will improve TB control programs, especially in low- and middle-income countries with high-socioeconomic disparity.
