RehmeAbstractMeyer-Weigert-Rule predicts the draining pattern of duplex ureters in bipolar renal duplications. The upper pole is normally seen as ectopic and therefore dysplastic due to obstruction, whereas the lower pole is related to vesicoureteral reflux. In our case, this rule is violated with uncrossed ureter duplex and a dysplastic lower pole in connection with obstruction.

These hormonal and immunologic changes may affect disease activity in systemic lupus erythematosus. Conversely, lupus nephritis and its complications may adversely impact pregnancy. Systemic lupus erythematosus increases the risk of pre-eclampsia and its complications, including preterm birth and intrauterine growth restriction. Comorbiditie...

Sabendo que, para a elaboração do luto, se requer uma objetivação da morte - a identificação do corpo morto e os ritos de passagem da vida para a morte -, supomos haver dific...

BondeSummarySerum iron concentration is usually decreased in true iron deficiency and with inflammatory disease in man and domestic animals. Serum total iron binding capacity (TIBC) may be increased in true iron deficiency and decreased with inflammatory disease. This prospective study was designed to measure serum iron analytes in healthy free-ranging and housed Florida manatees (Trichechus manatus latirostris) of both sexes and various ages and to evalu...

SomersAbstractAutoimmune diseases (AID) are more prevalent in women than men, and pregnancy-related factors such as hormonal modulation and fetal microchimerism may influence future risk of maternal AID. For women with AID, optimizing reproductive health requires a continuum of multidisciplinary care that initiates well before the desire for pregnancy is articulated. Family planning is essential so that pregnancy can be timed when disease is stable and to allow for appropriate medic...
