Toxicological and Epidemiological Studies of Scorpion Sting Cases and Morphological characterization of Scorpions (Leiurusquin questriatus and Androctonus crassicauda) in Luxor, Egypt

ConclusionScorpion sting is an acute heath threating in Southern Egypt, Leiurus quinquestriatus &Androctonus crassicauda are most endemic scorpion species in Southern Egypt. More attention for scorpion envenomation in such subtropical hyper desert localities is required to eradicate toxic scorpion species and prevent possible causes of deaths.Graphical abstract

I'm a transfer student at my university, and my classes have been a little messed up. I'm in my junior year and currently taking Organic I, Physics I, Genetics. Spring semester I've got Organic II, Physics II, and Biochem. As for the MCAT, I'm thinking about two options: 1. Finish this semester and start studying over Christmas break. Next semester take Organic II and Physics II; cut out biochem to allow more time to study. Take the MCAT in May to submit an application this cycle... MCAT Timeline Advice

Authors: Abbassy AA, Trebinjac S, Kotb N Abstract Knee osteoarthritis is a degenerative "wear and tear" disorder affecting mainly population over 50 years old. It can also present in younger people, especially after an injury or as a part of other diseases. While many therapeutic options exist for knee osteoarthritis, none of them has the potential to cure this condition. Cellular Matrix represents a combination of natural non-crosslinked hyaluronic acid (HA), thixotropic cell separation gel, and sodium citrate anticoagulant solution. A combination of Cellular Matrix with autologous platelet-rich plasma (...

Okey, why did i thought of this combination. I work as EM resident in europe and we do not evaluate much CT scans. You can learn self of course. But my thought is - if you are double specialized with rad maybe it can give much to patient flow, you can take quick evaluations self and avoid long with times till you get rad answer. You have good ultrasonography skills and if you want to avoid a bit patient contact can work for exemple 50/50 or 60/40. Maybe it is just me who thinks that way... Combined EM/Diagnostic Radiology?

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) could be a successful technology for understanding the severity ofmeningioma, according to a  studyrecently published inClinical Radiology. Determining if meningioma is high grade or low grade can help physicians decide how the tumor should be managed. Researchers from the American University Beirut Medical Center ventured to find out if MRI could help identify the meningioma grade before it ’s removed from the patient, making surgery easier and safer. The researchers analyzed scans of 71 patients who had undergone surgeries to remove intracranial meningiomas at America...

Conclusions: There are several ongoing efforts to use novel ablative therapies directed towards the brain. The recent development of techniques that allow for precise targeting, accurate delivery of thermal doses and real-time visualization of induced tissue damage during the procedure have resulted in novel techniques for cerebral ablation such as magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound or laser interstitial thermal therapy. However, older techniques such as radiofrequency thermal ablation or stereotactic radiosurgery still have a pivotal role in the management of a variety of neurological disorders. PMID: 315371...

We present 2 cases of scrub typhus with cholecystitis. The first patient is a 62 year old female who presented to the hospital with fever and body aches for 1 week and right upper quadrant abdominal pain for 3 days. She gave a history of an insect bite 2 weeks previously. She was diagnosed as having acute cholecystitis and underwent cholecystectomy. She continued with fever post-operatively and physical examination revealed an eschar. She had an immunofluorescence assay (IFA) performed that revealed a high IgM titer for Orientia tsutsugamushi. She was diagnosed as having scrub typhus, treated with doxycycline and she recov...
