Superior mesenteric artery syndrome in severe anorexia nervosa: A case series

Superior mesenteric artery syndrome presents with nonspecific GI complaints, hindering weight restoration in those with anorexia nervosa. Diagnosis is made with radiologic testing, and treatment requires only weight restoration, negating the need for surgical intervention.

This article includes references to self-injury, intravenous drug use and disordered eating.* One in five US high school students have reported being bullied.

I dreaded entering my elementary school classroom, as I was well aware of what my presence would entail. I endured both verbal and physical harassment from my fellow peers for nearly a decade. I was passive, inevitably leading to the acceptance of my “fate,” in addition ...

AbstractA systematic review was conducted to provide an overview of the efficacy and safety of125I irradiation stent placement for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and main portal vein tumor thrombosis (MPVTT). Six studies with 406 patients were included in the final analysis. The median overall survival for patients treated with125I irradiation stent placement was 10.3  months. The most common radiation-related adverse event was leukopenia. The stent-related adverse events consisted of fever, abdominal pain, hemorrhage, and anorexia. No stent or seed migration was reported. Overall, the use of an125I irra...

Patients were also offered semi-standardized NADA ear acupuncture as a complement to relieve stress, anxiety and tension. In total, 46 interviews were analysed qualitatively using latent content analysis. The results showed how participants strived with their slow transition towards recovery.

Abstract The cytokine-like protein FAM19A5 is highly expressed in the brain, but little is known about its functions there. Here, we found that FAM19A5 was expressed in mouse hypothalamic cells expressing proopiomelanocortin (POMC) and neuropeptide Y (NPY)/agouti-related peptide (AgRP), and in the microglia. Tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), which induces inflammatory sickness responses, greatly increased hypothalamic expression of FAM19A5. Knockdown of FAM19A5 expression resulted in decreased TNF-α-induced anorexia, body weight loss and TNF-α-induced expression of inflammatory factors. In c...
