This approach displays intrinsic conceptual limitations since NDD represent a dynamic spectrum of partially overlapping phenotypes, shared pathomechanistic alterations that often give rise to mixed pathologies.Areas covered: We scrutinized the international clinical diagn...

Men with clinical suspicion of PCa undergo tissue sampling and based on features including the Gleason score, Prostate Specific antigen (PSA) levels and clinical tumor (T) stage, patients are risk stratified into 6 major groups based on National Comprehensive Cancer Netwo...

ConclusionsThe highest incidence of poor neonatal outcome among women with reduced fetal movement was found in the groups with small for gestational age fetuses in nulliparous and multiparous women. A routine ultrasound assessment for fetal growth in third trimester is supposedly most efficient to identify undiagnosed small for gestational age.

AbstractTranscranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasound is a standard tool used in the setting of recent sub-arachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). By tracking velocity in the circle-of-Willis vessels, vasospasm can be detected as interval velocity increase. For this disease process, repeated TCD velocity measurements over many days is the basis for its usefulness. However, a key limitation to TCD is its user dependence, which is itself largely due to the fact that exact information about probe positioning is lost between subsequent scans. Surface point cloud ultrasound (SPC-US) was recently introduced as a general approach combining ultrasoun...

We read with great consideration the article by Montorfano et  al regarding the ultrasound evaluation of the optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) to detect increased intracranial pressure during acute elevations in intra-abdominal pressure.1 We believe that this study is very remarkable, but we would like to comment on some aspects of B-scan ultrasound techniqu e.

Conclusion: To our knowledge, this is the first report in which an immediate thrombus formation on the carotid web was observed in a patient with congenital protein C deficiency. In a case of acute ischemic stroke with carotid web, especially when congenital coagulopathy such as protein C deficiency is suspected, careful follow-up with ultrasound imaging should be performed.

AbstractPregnant women in the tropics like India are more susceptible to varicella zoster infection due to the lower seroprevalence of varicella as compared to temperate regions. Seronegative pregnant women are highly susceptible following a significant exposure owing to the high secondary attack rate of the virus. Fetal transmission could happen transplacentally while neonatal transmission occurs through close contact post partum. Maternal VZV infection could be severe (particularly varicella pneumonia) with high mortality if untreated. Congenital varicella syndrome has an incidence of about 1 –2% and is more likely...
