Raynaud's phenomenon of the nipple as a side-effect of labetalol: Case report and literature review

Publication date: Available online 24 July 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Jesus Avila Vega, Enrique Urrea-Mendoza, Christy LeeAbstractRaynaud's phenomenon of the nipple is an unusual side-effect of labetalol use. There is one official report from the United Kingdom. The present case concerns a 30-year-old woman, gravida 1, para 0, who developed pre-eclampsia and was treated with labetalol but subsequently reported neuropathic pain of the nipple. Nifedipine was then started as part of her treatment plan for blood pressure control and she no longer reported pain, despite being given six more doses of labetalol. Nifedipine is the first-line of treatment for Raynaud's phenomenon. The concomitant use of labetalol with nifedipine by a woman with Raynaud's phenomenon of the nipple has not been discussed before. The goal of this review is to raise awareness of this drug-induced phenomenon and to add to the limited literature available on this subject.

Adams, Akshay LakraABSTRACTHip joint subluxation and dislocations are very common in cerebral palsy (CP) patients and are directly related to the degree of spasticity. Hip dislocation and subluxation leads to hip pain and difficulty in hygiene maintenance by caregiver. Most cases require some sort of surgical intervention to improve the quality of life in these patients.

In this study, we investigated the anti-inflammatory protective effect of interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra), an anti-inflammatory cytokine, on systemic lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced spinal cord inflammation and oxidative stress, thermal hyperalgesia, and mechanical allodynia in neonatal rats. Intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection of LPS (2 mg/kg) or sterile saline was performed in postnatal day 5 (P5) rat pups, and IL-1ra (100 mg/kg) or saline was administered (i.p.) 5 min after LPS injection. Pain reflex behavior, spinal cord inflammation and oxidative stress were examined 24 h after LPS adminis...

Photo credit Kat-J Dear Carol: My 80-year-old mother had a stroke two years ago and lives in a close-by nursing home. I’m happy to visit her and make sure that her needs are met, but that’s not enough for her. She says it’s my duty to take her to the mall and other places to shop. She’s a large woman and taking her out in this way means getting her in and out of the car as well as wrestling a wheelchair in and out of my car trunk. I have fibromyalgia and body-wide arthritis, but she’s never accepted my health challenges.  I’ve offered to take her for drives since the nursing home st...
