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.

Conclusions: Analysis of the reports with patients treated with sunitinib, sorafenib, axitinib, and cabozantinib showed a clear prevalence of stomatitis grade 1 or grade 2. These data differ from those of patients treated with conventional chemotherapy in which mucositis is predominantly of grade 3 or grade 4. PMID: 29992147 [PubMed - in process]

We report the case of a 69-year-old man who developed chronic kidney disease stage 4 between 2009 and 2012. Precipitous kidney failure, anorexia, fatigue, and flank pain necessitated clinical follow-up that ultimately led to thorough imaging and bilateral kidney biopsy. Protein electrophoresis, immunohistochemistry, and immunofluorescence were all consistent with bilateral renal extramedullary plasmacytomas. Treatment recommendations are often limited to prior case successes; however, chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery are the mainstay of treatment. Although surgery or combined therapy provides the best results for patie...

A chest radiograph showed multiple circular masses of various sizes. Chest computed tomography revealed multiple pleural tumors without any lung lesion. The ultrasound-guided biopsy specimens demonstrated diffusely-proliferated tumor cells with clear or vacuolated cytoplasm, which were positive for CD10, PAX8, vimentin and CAM5.2, but were negative for mesothelial cell...

This study explored the subjective bodily experiences of patients with a diagnosis of anorexia nervosa (AN) during vibro-acoustic stimulation sessions with the Body Monochord (BoMo), a body sound treatment instrument. A total of 20 female patients diagnosed with AN received two BoMo treatments. Subsequent to the treatments, semi-structured interviews were conducted. Analysis was conducted using Grounded Theory.The following main categories were identified: differentiated perception, focussed attention, emergence of body-related feelings, emergence of emotions, emergence of thoughts, emergence of inner images, relaxation, s...
