They constitute a set of various entities that are clinically, etiologically and therapeutically different. Anatomically, it is necessary to distinguish anterior and posterior forms. From an etiological point of view, the diagnosis of the arteritic form due to giant cell arteritis requires emergent management to prevent blindness and even death in the absence of prompt corticosteroid treatment.

The use of biodiesel as fuel has been presented as a viable alternative in the search for renewable energies. It can be produced from the transesterification reaction of vegetable oils with methanol in the presence of sodium or potassium hydroxide as catalysts. In the present research, the transesterification reaction of soybean oil was modeled considering the three steps of the direct and reverse reactions following a second order general kinetics by the finite element method using the COMSOL Multiphysics ® software. The values of rate constants were determined using the simplex optimization method coupled with the de...

We present the case of a 71-year-old patient who was admitted to the medical intensive care unit in a state of multiple organ dysfunction. After the fourth day of applying all needed life-saving measures (vasopressor stimulation, mechanical ventilation, continuous dialysis treatment, broad spectrum antibiotic therapy, and other supportive measures), nonspecific heteroanamnestic data revealed that the patient had been having a persistent difficulty in swallowing liquids and food for a few days prior to hospital admission. After performing additional radiological and endoscopic diagnostic procedures, a foreign body was detec...
