UCLA medical students face their futures at Match Day

 Just before 9 a.m. on March 16, the scene was tense inside UCLA ’s Geffen School and across town atCharles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science.It was Match Day 2018 and 150David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA graduates, along with 25 of their counterparts at  Drew, who were watching via simulcast, were about to learn which hospital has accepted them for residency, or advanced training in their chosen specialty.After the clock struck 9, the scene erupted in a mad scramble for the blue and gold envelopes, as young doctors tore them open with their families and friends. Screams of joy pierced the air as classmates embraced and posed for photos with their acceptance letters.Angel Robinson, 29, was thrilled to match in obstetrics/gynecology at Adventist Health White Memorial in Boyle Heights. Prior to medical school, she had worked with  AmeriCorps at nearby Roosevelt High School to educate teens about reproductive health.“It feels like I’m coming home,” Robinson said. “I’m really excited to return and serve this community.”Lao-Tzu Allan-Blitz, 28, and his wife will be traveling across the country to Brigham and Women ’s Hospital in Boston, where he plans to parlay his training in internal medicine/pediatrics into a career in global health.

ConclusionHemolysis and icterus had insignificant interference on the Syva EMIT® and the DRI® assays for the analysis of acetaminophen, but significant interference effect on the Roche assay. On the other hand lipemia interfered less markedly with the Roche assay. The effect of hemolysis, icterus and lipemia should always be considered. Cautions are warranted when interpreting results for the potential false positive results in the presence of hemolysis and icterus at the concentrations evaluated in this study.

We present four cases of fixated cuffed tunneled catheters. Three children had acute lymphoblastic leukemia and one had an immunodeficiency syndrome. All catheters were made from polyurethane. Indwelling times were 12-24 months. All patients` catheters were removed with great difficulty by trans-femoral access. The angiography-assisted technique is safe and easily-applied for the removal of stuck catheters in pediatric patients. These cases raise important questions concerning the maximum indwelling time and the choice of catheter material when implanting permanent central venous catheters (CVCs) in children. PMID: 30...

The first pediatric case of leukoencephalopathy with brainstem and spinal cord involvement and lactate elevation (LBSL) from Turkey. Turk J Pediatr 2018; 60: 216-220. Leukoencephalopathy with brainstem and spinal cord involvement and lactate elevation (LBSL) is defined as an autosomal recessive inheritance disorder characterized by slowly progressive cerebellar, pyramidal and dorsal column dysfunction. The diagnosis is based on specific magnetic resonanc...

We present a 23-month-old girl with WBS (confirmed with fluorescent in situ hybridization probes) who presented with acute renal failure with severe symptomatic hypercalcemia and nephrocalcinosis, which responded to two infusions of pamidronate. PMID: 30325132 [PubMed - in process]

In this report, a 16-year-old boy presented with jaundice, nausea, vomiting and reduced urine output. He developed severe acute renal/hepatic damage due to abuse of gas products. Since toluene is the main toxic agent involved in glue sniffing which is metabolized to hippuric acid, the present case was treated with continuous hemodiafiltration, plasma exchange and conservative therapy to eliminate hippuric acid. The jaundice gradually disappeared, he had complete recovery of renal/hepatic functions in ten days. We aimed to increase the awareness among emergency physicians that ``glue sniffing` should be considered in the di...

This study focused on the case of a 35-monthold boy who was referred to our clinic with the diagnosis of diabetic ketoacidosis, and later had a modest elevation in hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels (6.7 %) incompatible with his significantly elevated blood glucose levels. The autoantibodies against pancreatic β-cells were negative. On the basis of these above mentioned findings, our patient was then diagnosed with fulminant type 1 diabetes mellitus. If patients with diabetic ketoacidosis have no elevation in HbA1c levels, they should be assessed for possible clinical factors that can lead to lower detectable levels of HbA...

We present a one-month-old infant with dyspnea who had a hyperinflated left lung and collapsed right lung. Computed tomography (CT) angiography demonstrated pulmonary sling causing compression of proximal parts of right and left main bronchi. This case highlights the importance of three-dimensional CT angiography in evaluation of thoracic vascular anomalies associated with tracheobronchial pathologies. PMID: 30325128 [PubMed - in process]
