An Incidental Finding of Subcutaneous Hemangioma During 99mTcO4 Salivary Gland Scintigraphy
A 43-year-old woman with papillary thyroid cancer prepared for 131I ablation after total thyroidectomy. With a history of type 2 diabetes for 10 years, she recently presented with periodontitis, candidiasis, and mouth dryness. 99mTcO4 scintigraphy was ordered to evaluate function of the salivary glands. The scintigraphy incidentally found a focal 99mTcO4 uptake in the left supraclavicular region. The subsequent neck ultrasonography showed a hypoechoic soft tissue mass with heterogeneous hypervascularity, suggestive of hemangioma.

While medicine transforms cancer into a chronic disease with which patients can live for an extended period of time, financial toxicity threatens to turn chronic, too.
This study examined the risk for postoperative complications, reoperations, and readmissions for patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), and patients without diabetes undergoing total joint replacements (TJRs). The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database was queried for all primary TJRs in 2015. The study identified 78,744 TJRs (84.1% nondiabetic patients, 12.0% NIDDM, and 3.9% IDDM). Multiple logistic regression models identified IDDM as an independent risk factor for increased blood loss, myocardia...
This study sought to characterize the changes in general immunity occurring during the progression from pre-diabetes to T2D. Male rats were fed a high-fat high-carbohydrate diet for 20 weeks (pre-diabetes induction period) and kept on the same diet being monitored for a further 12 weeks (experimental period). Blood was collected for haemocytometer analysis on week 0, 4, 8, and 12 of the experimental period after which the animals were sacrificed. Plasma was collected from centrifuged blood for ELISA (TNF-α, CRP, P-selectin, CD40 L, fibrinogen, and IL-6). Blood neutrophils percentage significantly...
