Childhood Sarcoidosis Presenting as Recurrent Facial Palsy.

Childhood Sarcoidosis Presenting as Recurrent Facial Palsy. Indian Pediatr. 2018 Apr 15;55(4):339-340 Authors: Passi GR, Arora K, Gokhale N Abstract BACKGROUND: Recurrent facial palsy in a patient merits investigation for underlying etiology. CASE CHARACTERISTICS: 8-year-old boy with erythematous itchy skin lesion and recurrent facial palsy. OBSERVATION: He had a past history of aseptic meningitis and nephrocalcinosis. Raised angiotensin converting enzyme levels, interstitial lung disease on CT chest, and non caseating granulomas on skin biopsy clinched the diagnosis of sarcoidosis. MESSAGE: Multisystem involvement and recurrent lower motor facial nerve palsy is a clinical clue for sarcoidosis. PMID: 29726829 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 22 January 2020Source: Physics of the Earth and Planetary InteriorsAuthor(s): Majid Khan, Yike Liu, Syed Zaheer Ud DinAbstractPreserved deformed depositional sequences along passive continental margins are important repositories of natural resources as well as key laboratories for understanding rift-drift tectonics. With better post signal processing schemes, interpretation techniques, and potential data, imaging sedimentary basins along these margins has reached unique levels of refinement. This, in turn, has led to considerable improvement in unfolding the complex tectono-sedimentary hi...

We described a case of an apparently immunocompetent 66-years old man admitted to hospital with a one-month history of cough, fever and vertigo. During hospitalization, thorax imaging was suggestive of lung metastasis, therefore, he went through several investigations. During hospitalization, he developed neurological symptoms and subsequently underwent a lumbar puncture. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) culture was positive for Cryptococcus spp. isolated on Sabouraud's dextrose agar and bird seed agar. In addition, the direct microscopy examination was positive for the India ink test, as well as with the latex agglutination test...

Abstract A 37-year-old male patient, Fitzpatrick skin phototype IV, a student living in Belem, Amazon region, in 2015 had a confirmed diagnosis of acquired immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, but did not initiate antiretroviral treatment at his own option. Three years after the diagnosis, erythematous maculae appeared on the dorsum of the nose with rapid progression to the entire face, with posterior diffuse infiltration and appearance of nodules on the chin and shoulder. In December 2018, the patient presented with exacerbation of the condition with an increase in infiltrated violaceous plaques and disseminat...

The resultant social inequity is manifested in conditions of social injustice including inadequate housing. The Dene healthy housing research was a continuing partnership between t...
