Predictors of Responsible Drinking or Abstinence Among College Students Who Binge Drink: A Multitheory Model Approach.
Authors: Sharma M, Anyimukwu C, Kim RW, Nahar VK, Ford MA Abstract Context: Binge drinking is a salient problem on college campuses, with estimates as high as 40% of students engaging in it. Binge drinking is associated with numerous negative consequences among college students, such as suicide attempts, unsafe sex practices, property damage, and driving under the influence. Several behavioral approaches in this regard have had modest impact and only short-term effects, however. Objective: To use the multitheory model (MTM) of health behavior change to predict initiation and sustenance of responsible drinking o...

Lymphatic Pump Treatment Mobilizes Bioactive Lymph That Suppresses Macrophage Activity In Vitro.
Authors: Castillo R, Schander A, Hodge LM Abstract Context: By promoting the recirculation of tissue fluid, the lymphatic system preserves tissue health, aids in the absorption of gastrointestinal lipids, and supports immune surveillance. Failure of the lymphatic system has been implicated in the pathogenesis of several infectious and inflammatory diseases. Thus, interventions that enhance lymphatic circulation, such as osteopathic lymphatic pump treatment (LPT), should aid in the management of these diseases. Objective: To determine whether thoracic duct lymph (TDL) mobilized during LPT would alter the functio...

Perplexing Rash: Challenges to Diagnosis and Management of Mycosis Fungoides.
Authors: Aun JA, Patel HS, Patel KK, Cashman J, Bailey E Abstract Mycosis fungoides is the most ubiquitous form of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. Diagnosis is arduous, as early phases often resemble common inflammatory dermatoses. The principal histologic features of MF include medium to large-sized cerebriform mononuclear cells in single or small clusters in the epidermis. Treatment modalities are prodigious and relapses are common. The authors present a case of a 69-year-old man with mycosis fungoides, followed by a review of diagnostic modalities and phototherapeutic interventions for patients with this condition. A...

Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band Erosion Into the Stomach and Colon.
Authors: Corvini M, Kang E, Weidner G, Lombert J Abstract Morbid obesity has reached epidemic proportions in the United States and constitutes a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. Bariatric surgery represents a viable and effective means of weight loss. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band placement is the most commonly used and least invasive bariatric surgical technique. Although the complication rate is low, various complications have been described, including erosion of the gastric band into the stomach. The authors present a case of laparoscopic adjustable gastric band erosion, where both the band a...

Authors: Corvini M, Koorji A, Sgroe E, Nguyen U Abstract Signet ring cell carcinoma, a subtype of adenocarcinoma, is a rare cause of primary lung cancer. The authors report a case of primary lung signet ring cell carcinoma presenting as a cavitary Pancoast tumor in a 32-year-old male smoker. Beyond the rarity of primary lung signet ring cell carcinoma itself, the youth of the patient, his smoking status, the presence of cavitation, and the location of the tumor in the superior sulcus make it especially atypical.

Atrial Flutter With Exercise-Induced 1:1 Atrioventricular Conduction.
Authors: Burkhart R, Gerasimon G Abstract Typical atrial flutter is a common atrial tachyarrhythmia. Symptoms are typically related to the rate of ventricular response. Although atrial flutter with 1:1 atrioventricular conduction is rare, it is important to recognize because it may precipitate rapid hemodynamic compromise. The authors present a case of exercise-induced 1:1 atrioventricular conduction in a patient with typical atrial flutter.

Authors: Kelm Z, Klapchar K, Kieliszak CR, Selinsky C Abstract Chronic dizziness can be challenging for both patients and physicians, as a variety of specialists may be consulted and tests ordered before a diagnosis is established. The various potential etiologic processes involved in chronic dizziness require an interdisciplinary approach to care. Common causes include neurologic, vestibular, and cardiac diseases. Psychiatric disorders, however, may be overlooked when establishing a differential diagnosis. This case report illustrates some of the complexities in diagnosing and effectively managing chronic dizzines...
