Review of the clinical, computerized tomography scan and/or magnetic resonance imaging findings of intracranial tuberculoma in an ethiopian teaching hospital.
Conclusion: Tuberculoma, more frequently, presented with non-specific clinical findings and chronic seizure disorder and comonly occurred in young patients and often seen infratentorialy. It is often complicated with hydrocephalus in the pediatric age group. Computerized tomography scan and/or magnetic resonance imaging features are not different from reports from other countries.

Authors: Tai J, Zou J, Zhang X, Wang Y, Liang Y, Guo D, Wang M, Cui C, Wang J, Cheng J, Shi Y Abstract Background: Hypertension is a primary risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Tianma Gouteng decoction (TGD), originating from Zabingzhengzhixinyi, has been used for thousands of years in China to treat hypertension, giddiness, and migraine. This updated meta-analysis aimed at assessing the efficacy and safety of TGD combined with nifedipine in the treatment of primary hypertension. Methods: Related research published prior to September 1, 2019, was found in electronic databases without language limitati...
AbstractOn 14 June 2017 at 00:54 h, the worst residential fire since the conclusion of the Second World War broke out in Flat 16, 4th floor of the 24-storey residential Grenfell Tower Block of flats, North Kensington, West London, UK. Seventy-one adults and children died, including one stillbirth. All victims of the Grenfell Towe r disaster who died at the scene underwent post-mortem computed tomography (PMCT) imaging using a mortuary-sited mobile computed tomography scanner. For the first time, to the authors’ knowledge, the disaster victim identification (DVI) radiology reporting was undertaken remote to the ...

Conclusion: The Swedish version of the SPQ-B exhibit good psychometric properties and is useful for assessing schizotypal traits in clinical and non-clinical populations. PMID: 32091308 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: The proper surgical technique can be established based on the preoperative CT scan. Abdominal wall reconstruction with retromuscular Prolene mesh and hernial sac provides a cheap, reliable, tension-free technique. The technique's short-term efficacy can be determined by abdominal pressure measuring through the bladder. Orv Hetil. 2020; 161(9): 347-353. PMID: 32088976 [PubMed - in process]
In conclusion, the diagnosis of TBM should combine clinical manifestations, CSF examination and the effect of anti-TB therapy. Differential diagnosis and trial anti-TB therapy may be of help for diagnosis. Positive CSF smear, CSF culture and biopsy of the brain, or biopsy of meninges are golden standards for the diagnosis of TBM. Early diagnosis and treatment are very important for improving the outcome. PMID: 30210618 [PubMed]

Without treatment 50% of pulmonary TB patients will be dead in 5 years. In low to middle income countries both TB and HIV can be ubiquitous, poor compliance can lead to drug resistance and malnourished infants are highly susceptible. TB can be very complex and this post will hopefully give you the backbone t...
Conclusions: In the absence of hydrocephalus or vasculitis, one week of anti-tuberculosis treatment seems to be adequate for the resolution of TBM symptoms. Hydrocephalus and vasculitis delay the resolution of TBM symptoms in response to antimycobacterial treatment.
