The Environment of Ferenczi's Clinical Diary(*).

The Environment of Ferenczi's Clinical Diary(*). Am J Psychoanal. 2014 Dec;74(4):322-31 Authors: Haynal AE Abstract The author evokes the tragic death of Ferenczi's colleague and analysand Dr. Elisabeth Radó-Révész in 1923. She died of pernicious anemia, the same illness that ended the life of Ferenczi 10 years later, at age 59. Can this be a tragic coincidence? Following notes in Ferenczi's Clinical Diary, the author considers the deep disappointments both Ferenczi and Radó-Révész had experienced and explores some of the Tragic Man qualities of Ferenczi.

With all our talk of opiate withdrawal syndromes accompanied by nausea, headache, fatigue, and depression, it can be daunting, even terrifying, to people who face the prospect of tossing all wheat and grains into the trash bin, vowing to never let a Danish, donut, or dish of pasta cross your lips again. So it may help to lay out a timeline of what and when various changes can develop in the Wheat Belly wheat- and grain-free lifestyle. You can expect different symptoms and health conditions to recede at different rates, since they are caused by a variety of different mechanisms. For instance, the direct gastrointestinal tox...

Authors: Li Y, Xia R, Zhang B, Li C Abstract Chronic atrophic gastritis is a generally asymptomatic condition of great importance because it develops into gastric cancer in a number of patients. It is described as an atrophy of the gastric mucosa. There are two types of atrophic gastritis: a gastric body predominant type in patients with infection of Helicobacter pylori, and an autoimmune type, limited to the gastric body and fundus. The autoimmune type is quite rare and affects people of all ethnicities. Globally, H. pylori infection is very common and is considered a class I carcinogen due to the large number of ...

I was browsing the internet one day and came across a photo of a group of women who appeared educated and influential. They were wearing blue T-shirts with claims that vaccines cause autoimmune diseases, seizures, ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, learning disabilities, death, autism, sudden infant death syndrome and infertility. I couldn’t help but laugh at them! I shared this photo on my Facebook page. To my surprise, one of my educated friends shared her concern about vaccinations and declared that she had withheld immunization from her own children. I decided to write this paper for young women li...

This study adds to the now growing base of literature describing this atypical presentation of pernicious anemia with normal neurologic function and underscores the importance of screening for B-12 deficiency in these patients. It also highlights the increased risk of gastric carcinoids in patients with autoimmune gastritis. With the collaboration of different medical specialists, the full gamut of medical technology was utilized in the care of the patient. This included in vitro diagnostics, advanced endoscopic tools, pathology, and radio-isotope based imaging studies. PMID: 30258311 [PubMed - in process]

We present 2 cases of PA associated with cryptogenic cirrhosis (CC), which has not been previously reported in the literature. Patient concerns: A 42-year-old man presented with fatigue, pallor, and sustained abdominal distension that had persisted for 15 days. An 87-year-old man was admitted to the hospital for an unsteady gait and loss of appetite that had persisted for 20 days. Diagnoses: Symptoms, laboratory tests, and imaging findings for both patients were indicative of PA and CC.Both had neurological and psychiatric symptoms during hospitalization that were ultimately linked to a vitamin B12 deficiency but not...
