Complex regional pain syndrome as a paraneoplastic disorder associated with metatypical basal cell carcinoma. Rom J Morphol Embryol. 2019;60(2):685-689 Authors: Gofiţă CE, Ciurea ME, Dinescu ŞC, Vreju AF, Stoica LE, Ciurea RN, Boldeanu MV, Rogoveanu OC, Trăistaru MR, Bumbea AM, Ciurea PL, Muşetescu AE Abstract Metatypical basal cell carcinoma (MTBCC) is a rare form of tumor, which associates the clinical and histopathological (HP) characteristics of both basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), with a 5% chance for the development of metastases. The reference diagnosis remains the HP confirmation from the lesional tissue. The current report illustrates the case of a 74-year-old patient, diagnosed with MTBCC consequently to the biopsy from the clinically malignant lesion with HP and immunohistochemical examination, currently in clinical remission following surgical treatment. The musculoskeletal symptoms represent the patient's admission reason to the Clinic of Rheumatology, where he was diagnosed with paraneoplastic type I complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS-I). The onset was six weeks prior with intense pain in the upper limb, burning sensation and nondermatomal distribution, exacerbated by lowering the position of the upper limb. The clinical evaluation revealed vasomotor disorders: color changes on the skin of the upper limb, venous turgescence on the back of the hands, and local increased temperature. Also, there were eviden...

I’ve been doing RFAs in private practice for 5 years, never any complications. Today, I slipped off the left L4 pedicle a few times, it was challenging. Adjusted the fluoro and was satisfied. No motor, lateral image did not indicate foraminal encroachment. Injected lidocaine prior to ablation. I was firmly in os and I held the probe the entire 2:30. In PACU patient complained of weakness and numbness in the L4 dermatome (FML). I was hoping it could be chalked up to the lidocaine... RFA complication

Hi folks, Does anyone have good recommendations for favorite electives during fellowship? My program has slots for three 2-week rotations -- it is a large tertiary center with a lot of services (i.e. plenty of options). I imagine there are pearls and valuable skills to take away from nearly all available rotations. In your experience, any particularly high-yield to the practice of HPM? I'm thinking addictions, pain, .... spiritual? psych?

Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Citrus fruit are suggested to be associated with reduced risk of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), but findings from epidemiologic studies have been inconsistent. We aimed to synthesize the association by conducting a meta-analysis of existing evidence. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: Databases including Medline, EMBASE, Web of science, and the Cochrane Library were searched for eligible studies up to March 2019 using a series comprehensive searching terms. The adjusted odds ratios (ORs) of citrus fruit intake with NPC risk from each study were extracted to calculate a pooled assoc...
