Mandible brown tumor associated with hyperparathyroidism secondary to chronic renal insufficiency: case report

We report a case of a 30-year-old female patient referred to our clinic with a chief complaint of a painful swelling of the left mandible and difficulty chewing. Her medical history included systemic lupus erythematosus, hypertension, and chronic kidney disease (was on hemodialysis for the past 9 years).

Authors: Boivin JM, Risse J, Laurière E, Burnier M Abstract Purpose: Worldwide, hypertension awareness remains largely insufficient. This is particularly true in some population subgroups with a low socioeconomic status or in young adults who have limited interactions with healthcare systems. Performing Blood Pressure (BP) screening in non-conventional settings, such as in barbershops, has been suggested by a number of American authors. Whether this approach is feasible in Europe or in North Africa has not been evaluated, however. We, therefore, undertook a study to assess the value of BP screening at hairdr...

Vara LakshmiAbstractThe healing proportion of strengthening cracks in buildings such as Reinforced cement concrete (RCC) Houses, RCC Pipes, Canal Lining, Pavement etc. has been increased in the ongoing bacterial concrete. In order to fix the cracks in the concrete, it needs ordinary maintenance and exceptional treatment that can be terribly expensive. This is another method adopted by the use of microbiologically actuated calcite (CaCO3) precipitation in the arrangement of concrete. In this ...

Authors: Augstburger E, Héron E, Abanou A, Habas C, Baudouin C, Labbe A Abstract Ischemic optic neuropathies are among the leading causes of severe visual acuity loss in people over 50 years of age. 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. When this diagnosi...

We investigated the association between FGF-23 concentration and peripheral AS in renal transplantation (RT) recipients.MethodsThe fasting blood samples of RT recipients (n=66) were collected and analyzed.ResultsA total of 29 (43.9%) RT recipients were classified under the peripheral AS group. The RT recipients in this group had a hig...

Calcium sensing receptor (CaSR) activation induces HPH by promoting vasoconstriction and vascular remodeling. The activated κ-OR is reported to inhibit the expression of CaSR in pulmonary artery smooth muscle cell...

Sphingosine kinases (SPHK1 and SPHK2) are the key targets in the synthesis of S1P. However, selective and potent inhibitors of SPHK are lacking, especially for SPHK2. In this work, we predicted the detailed interactions between the inhibitors and...

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a considerable risk factor of cardiovascular disease, heart failure, chronic kidney disease, and mortality [1 –4]. Diabetes caused 4 million deaths in 2017, with more than 0.84 million in China [5]. The prevalence of T2DM is increasing in many countries with the speeding up of urbanization and change in lifestyle. The International Diabetes Federation estimated that approximately 425 million adults (20– 79 years) were living with diabetes in 2017, 79% were from low- and middle-income countries, and this number would rise to 629 million by 2045 [5].
