Bilateral adrenal pheochromocytomas in A 14 year-old boy

ConclusionPheochromocytomas is a rare disease which may lead to a life-threathening hypertension as a result of elevated cathecolamine production. Initial recognition and appropriate management of pheochromocytomas are important. Preoperative management to normalize blood pressure followed by tumor removal has proved to be the ideal choice for good prognosis. Multidisciplinary team during preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative are required for successful outcome.

High blood pressure: A common diagnosis, that shows hardly any symptoms, but can be deadly. Hardened arteries and blood forced too hard against artery walls can lead to a heart attack or stroke. Fortunately, there are lifestyle improvements that can lower blood pressure and potentially save your life.

Abbott Laboratories has been wildly successful with its FreeStyle Libre continuous glucose monitor (CGM) since winning FDA approval in 2017, but it seems some investors and patients may be getting restless as the U.S. market waits for the second-generation of the blockbuster technology. We first noted some signs of impatience for Libre 2 in our coverage of Abbott's third-quarter earnings call in October. One reader commented on that article that "I don’t particularly care about investors becoming impatient, as a Freestyle Libre user I am growing impatie...

Authors: Ruiz Rebollo ML, González Obeso E, Burgueño Gómez B, Santos Fernández J Abstract A 75-year-old male was referred due to dysphagia and iron-deficiency anemia. An upper endoscopy was performed which revealed a friable mass at 30 to 37 cm from the incisors, consistent with esophageal malignancy. However, the pathology only demonstrated granulation inflammatory tissue. An endoscopic ultrasound exam showed a 2-3 cm esophageal wall thickening with a 1.5 cm lymph node, which was staged as a T2-3 N1 esophageal tumor. A CT-scan also identified a 7.5 cm esophageal malignancy surrounded by...

This study aims to test the hypothesis that induced spinal sensitization could be more pronounced in patients affected by high-frequency migraine (HF-MIG) with respect to low-frequency migraine (LF-MIG). We enrolled 28 patients with LF-MIG (1-5 migraine days/month), 19 patients with HF-MIG (6-14 migraine days/month), and 21 healthy controls (HCs). Spinal sensitization was evaluated with the neurophysiological recording of the temporal summation threshold (TST) of the nociceptive withdrawal reflex at the lower limb. Temporal summation threshold was recorded at baseline and 30, 60, and 120 minutes after NTG administration (0...

RaoAbstractWe demonstrate a facile synthesis method to modify the candle soot morphology with the assistance of urea as a porogen during combustion to enable its use as a binder-free anode. As obtained urea modified candle soot varies significantly in its physical and electrochemical properties compared to candle soot deposited directly by burning the candle. While we characterize the physiochemical properties thoroughly in this work using X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy...

Siva Raja, Antony Viswasa raniAbstractIn medical image processing, brain tumor detection and segmentation is a challenging and time-consuming task. Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) scan analysis is a powerful tool in the recent technology that makes effective detection of the abnormal tissues from the brain. In the brain image, the size of a tumor can be varied for different patients along with the minute details of the tumor. It is a difficult task to diagnose and classify the tumor from numerous images for the...

Nielsen, Ricardo Velasco, Kristie Tu, Sophia Han, Briana KennedyAbstractThe locus coeruleus (LC) regulates attention via the release of norepinephrine (NE), with levels of tonic LC activity constraining the intensity of phasic LC responses. In the current fMRI study, we used isometric handgrip to modulate tonic LC-NE activity in older women and in young women with different hormone statuses during the time period immediately after the handgrip. During this post-handgrip time, an oddball detection...

McGlinchey, David H. SalatAbstractThe human hippocampus is vulnerable to a range of degenerative conditions and as such, accurate in vivo measurement of the hippocampus and hippocampal substructures via neuroimaging is of great interest for understanding mechanisms of disease as well as for use as a biomarker in clinical trials of novel therapeutics. Although total hippocampal volume can be measured relatively reliably, it is critic...

Abstract Context Pheochromocytoma is a rare disease but with high mortality if it is not being diagnosed early. Several biochemical tests with high accuracy have been obtained, but the clinical threshold for request of these tests is not determined clearly. Objectives To determine the Likelihood Ratios of clinical symptoms and signs in diagnosing pheochromocytoma. And also meta-analysis of their sensitivity in this disease. Data sources MEDLINE was searched for relevant English-language articles dated 19...
