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.

Macropolycytes are tetraploid neutrophils produced during accelerated myelopoiesis. They have been reported in adults with pernicious anemia, sepsis, and after cytotoxic chemotherapy. Two pediatric cases are reported, one after granulocyte colony-stimulating factor treatment and the other following Kawasaki disease, respectively.

This study mainly assessed the frequencies of presence of serum GPCA, TGA, and TMA in atrophic glossitis (AG) patients.MethodsSerum GPCA, TGA, and TMA levels were measured in 1064 AG patients and in 532 age- and sex-matched healthy control subjects.ResultsWe found that 26.7%, 28.4%, and 29.8% of 1064 AG patients and 2.3%, 2.1%, and 2.6% of 532 healthy control subjects had the serum GPCA, TGA, and TMA positivities, respectively. AG patients had a significantly higher frequency of GPCA, TGA, or TMA positivity than healthy control subjects (all P-values

CONCLUSIONS: In patients with PA, a screening for autoimmune thyroid disease is justified, which should first involve the determination of TPOAb (further TgAb) in the blood. The assessment of antithyroid antibodies should be recommended primarily to patients with PA who have IFAb or/and APCA and in particular those with with concurrent IFAb and APCA.

Publication date: Available online 11 January 2019Source: Autoimmunity ReviewsAuthor(s): Sara Massironi, Alessandra Zilli, Alessandra Elvevi, Pietro InvernizziAbstractChronic autoimmune atrophic gastritis (CAAG) is an organ-specific autoimmune disease, which affects the corpus–fundus gastric mucosa. Although it has been described for several years, the real pathophysiological mechanisms, the natural history and the possible neoplastic complications are not completely known. Atrophy of the gastric mucosa is the endpoint of the chronic processes, with the loss of glandular cells and their replacement by intestinal-type...

AbstractThrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) is an uncommon yet life-threatening condition, usually marked by a classic pentad of microangiopathic hemolytic anemia (MAHA), thrombocytopenia, acute kidney injury (AKI), neurological disturbances, and fevers. Prompt recognition and treatment is essential to reduce morbidity and mortality. The rarity and variability of presentations, however, makes this a difficult diagnosis to make reliably, and in many cases, treatment is initiated empirically before the appropriate diagnostic testing is completed. After TTP and other common causes of thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) hav...

ConclusionsThe disease of AG itself is a significant factor causing anemia, hematinic deficiencies, and hyperhomocysteinemia in both GPCA+AG and GPCA−AG patients. The serum GPCA also plays a significant role in causing macrocytosis, vitamin B12 deficiency, and hyperhomocysteinemia in GPCA+AG patients.

Abstract INTRODUCTION: The association between type 1 diabetes (T1D) and other auto-immune diseases is well-known. However, a quantitative overview of all associated auto-immune diseases and their prevalence in T1D is lacking. METHODS: We searched Pubmed, Web of Science, EMBASE and Cochrane library in September 2018 to identify relevant articles about the prevalence of the following associated auto-immune diseases in T1D cohorts: auto-immune thyroid disease, celiac disease, gastric autoimmunity including pernicious anemia, vitiligo, and adrenal gland insufficiency. A meta-analysis was performed to estimate po...
