Physical and chemical injuries of the oral mucosa can be caused by an accidental, iatrogenic, and factitious trauma. The present case describes chemical burn of oral mucosa caused by escitalopram oxalate. It belongs to a group of medicines used for relief of the symptoms of depression. A 27-year-old female patient presented with a 1-month history of an oral lesion with a burning sensation. Intraoral examination revealed a solitary white plaque on the ventral surface of the tongue. The patient reported medical treatment for anxiety and panic syndrome with a single daily dose of escitalopram (Lexapro) oral solution (20 mg/mL...

Paracoccidioidomycosis is a disease caused by the dimorphic fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. A 46-year-old male patient, chronic smoker, crack and cocaine user reported a history of completed syphilis treatment 5 years ago. The patient described a recent history of a mouth burn secondary to chlorine. Clinical examination revealed moriform ulcers with hemorrhagic dots on the surface on the lower labial mucosa, buccal mucosa, and hard palate. The histopathologic diagnosis of this incisional biopsy was paracoccidioidomycosis.

Despite overall advances in treatment, wound infection remains one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in patients with severe burn injuries. Burn injury to the face can lead to scarring and contractures that may impair oral competence for articulation, feeding, airway intubation access, oral/dental hygiene, aesthetics, and facial expression. These cases reports are related to oral assistance to 2 patients with orofacial burns. The first patient had 47% of the body burned after a gas explosion in the kitchen and the second 60% after a plane crash.

Piqueras, Pedro Enríquez, Jesús BlancoAbstractBET (Biological Engineering Technology) formula uses fluids with high albumin concentration to resuscitate burn patients. It estimates fluid resuscitation as a function of Body Burned Surface Area (BBSA) (ml/h = BBSA (m2) × 220) and administers it through a combination of lactated ringer and 20% Albumin starting at a 1:1 r...

Publication date: Available online 14 December 2019Source: BurnsAuthor(s): Sharareh Roshanzamir, Elahe KeshavarziAbstractIntroductionBurn victims are reported to have more possibility of bone loss in acute phase of injury partly due to sympathetic dysfunction and catecholamine increase beside other hypermetabolic responses. These patients are also prone to autonomic neuropathy and sympathetic skin response (SSR) impairment. We aim to investigate the correlation between SSR in the acute phase and bone mineral density (BMD) parameters in electrical burn patients and determine whether the SSR parameter in initial weeks of the...

ConclusionsThrough review of the literature on flu vaccination in immunocompromised patients we show how this could be extrapolated to patients with significant burns. We propose a guideline to aid in the decision to prescribe flu vaccine to patients with significant burns taking into account age, % TBSA burn and comorbidity. The decision to recommend the flu vaccine in this group should be considered on an individual basis. However, flu vaccination represents a simple, low-risk measure which could prevent the dangerous complications of influenza in an at risk group.

Exodus 35 is proof that the scribes just threw together whatever material they had, including multiple versions of the same story. Here Moses starts to tell the people what's on the new and largely different set of Ten Commandments, but he only gets through one. He then repeats the gift list we were already subjected to in Exodus 25. Oh yeah -- it's coming again in 39. God's utter self-absorption, narcissism and psychopathy are still very much in evidence. Remind you of anybody?35 Moses assembled all the congregation of the Israelites and said to them: These are the things that theLord has commanded you to do:2 S...

Hi, I'm finishing up my fellowship in June and I'm in an unfortunate situation where it looks like my father is getting burned out taking care of my mom. It looks like we may need consider putting her in an assisted living facility but I want to still try and be there for her if I can after my training. My question is if I take 6 months to a year of not working (or very minimal part time work), will this affect me from a licensing perspective? I'm the eldest child and unfortunately my... Taking some time off between finishing training and working?
