Visual processing of one's own body over the course of time: Evidence for the vigilance ‐avoidance theory in adolescents with anorexia nervosa?

DiscussionThe early vigilance in AN and the subsequent decrease in attention to unattractive body parts is in line with our assumptions. However, no indication of attentional avoidance was found. The current findings partially support the vigilance‐avoidance theory for the exposure to one's own body in adolescents with AN.

This issue illustrates how research from practice-based research networks has evolved to span a spectrum from improving patient-level care and practice quality to improving health within local and global communities. Articles address patient-level improvements (a biomarker for cardiovascular disease progression, late-onset anorexia nervosa, complementary health approaches used by patients, and patient preferences related to antibiotics for acute respiratory infections); practice-level improvements (selection of types of fecal immunochemical tests, practice facilitation, practice registry implementation, community-based out...

We present the fatal case of a 66-year old woman with severe malnutrition and newly diagnosed anorexia nervosa. Inpatient refeeding was unsuccessful, and she succumbed to multisystem organ failure. The timely recognition of eating disorders among older people is important for family physicians who care for patients across the life spectrum.

CONCLUSION: These results are important for healthcare providers as they work with patients to identify life experiences, including 'loss/potential loss' and 'the need for preservation', that have personal significance. Some patients may realize that 'enough is enough'; something needs to change. These intrinsic motivating factors may also be the impetus for eventual recovery for some individuals.

In this study, clinical anaplasmosis in dairy cattle in the Thrace region of Turkey was investigated with respect to within-herd prevalence, vertical transmission, and genetic diversity. In March and September 2015, thirty lactating cows showed primary clinical signs of anaplasmosis, including fever, anaemia, decreased milk yield, anorexia, and laboured breathing. Symptoms disappeared in most cows after administration of long-acting oxytetracycline, but nine of them (30%) died. Following diagnosis based on clinical signs, microscopy and molecular findings, blood samples were collected from apparently healthy lactating cows...

We report a case of acute hepatotoxicity in a 53-year old male patient after administration of TMZ for GBM. He had fatigue, nausea, anorexia and jaundice. His laboratory analysis showed alanine aminotransferase(ALT) : 632 IU/L (normal range 0-40) ; aspartate aminotransferase(AST) : 554 IU/L (normal range 5-34) ; alkaline phosphatase(ALP) : 1143 IU/L (normal range 40-150) ; γ-glutamyl transpeptidase(GGT) : 514 IU/L (normal range 9-64 IU/L) ; total bilirubin : 15.1 mg/dL (normal range 0-1.2) ; direct bilirubin : 13.2 mg/dL and prothrombin time(PT) : 13.5 s, with international normalized ratio (I...

Kim A 1-year-old, female domestic shorthair cat was presented with anorexia, depression and weight loss, accompanied by multifocal nodules affecting the face, pinnae and periarticular tissue. Routine medical treatments were ineffective. The animal's physical condition continued to deteriorate and it finally died. Post-mortem examination revealed multifocal to coalescing firm nodules with occasional ulceration affecting the ears, per...
