Authors: Fournier E Abstract Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is too common a condition not to daily interact with the practitioner, if only because of its entanglement to other pathologies, causal or chance association. The typical symptomatology, with hand paresthesia and morning pain upon waking, is related to a median nerve injury in the confined space of the carpal tunnel, more often by local inflammation and tenosynovitis of the finger flexors (repetitive activity of the hands). SCC may be secondary to situations (pregnancy) or conditions (edema, hypothyroidism…), which exaggerate the ordinary pathophysiol...

We report a consanguineous family with a homozygous and heterozygous membrane metallo-endopeptidase (MME) mutation (c.467delC) and two clinical conditions: fetomaternal alloimmune membranous glomerulopathy (FMG) and hereditary motor and sensory axonal neuropathy. The penetrance of both phenotypes was variable. Some individuals experienced unusually fast neurological degradation. Pain and vasomotor signs were frequent complaints, possibly due to a loss of the neutral endopeptidase (NEP, the MME gene product) function and its subsequent inability to degrade substance P and vasomotor peptides. Electrophysiological and nerve b...

How bad of an idea is it to be pregnant with adequate lead coverage during early months of pregnancy? I had a fellow resident who was pregnant who changed her rotations around to avoid any exposure, however it's my understanding that overall the exposure with adequate coverage is ultimately fine. I know most of you are men - not sure if there are any female pain docs who could chime in? Sigh.

BOSTON (CBS/CNN) – A new Chinese coronavirus, a cousin of the SARS virus, has infected more than 200 people since the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December. Boston’s Logan Airport is not currently screening passengers for the illness, a spokesman for Customs and Border Protection told WBZ-TV. That’s because there are no direct flights to Boston from that region. Additional health screening for coronavirus is in place at JFK Airport in New York, San Francisco International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport. The agency said the CDC has determined that coronavirus presents a low risk to the...

Springfield Smoked Fish of Springfield, MA is expanding their voluntary recall of smoked fish products because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

For many women, a subjective substantial recovery occurred within 2 weeks after delivery.
