[For Once Not Corona Virus - an Uncommon Cause of Fever and Hepatitis].
Abstract For Once Not Corona Virus - an Uncommon Cause of Fever and Hepatitis Abstract. Our case reports acute Q fever as uncommon cause of fever, typically accompanied by pneumonia and/or hepatitis. It is caused by Coxiella burnetii, a bacterium which is generally hosted by live stock and affects humans by inhaling aerosols of the animals' excrements. If detected, it may be treated effectively. It should be considered in patients living in a typical environment or with a typical history. The route of our patient's infection remains unclear since he plausibly denied contact with any animals.

t N Abstract Cosmetic Breast Augmentation without Silicone Implants Abstract. Cosmetic breast augmentation procedures without silicone implants are becoming increasingly popular. Mastopexy can be adapted to the needs of the patient and usually result in an at least optical augmentation. Lipofilling is a safe procedure in reconstructive and aesthetic breast surgery and can help to restore natural appearance, compensate volume deficiencies, and correct asymmetries, that may be congenital or a consequence of prior surgeries. Cosmetic breast augmentation of very small breasts or when aiming at higher breast volumes us...

Abstract Injuries from Falls in Backcountry Skiing - an Analysis from the Swiss Alps Abstract. Ski mountaineering is becoming increasingly popular. In addition to positive aspects, there are also dangers involved whereby falls must be mentioned particularly. Using the central register of the SAC (Swiss Alpine Club), a total of 756 male and 593 female cases of falls in the ten-year period from 2009-2018 were analyzed using the NACA score and case reports. It was found that around 90 % of the analyzed cases in women concerned the lower extremity with the knee (55 %) as the most common localization. Similarly, in men...

Abstract Rare Forms of Mastitis Abstract. Inflammatory breast diseases caused by bacterial infections represent the main cause for mastitis in breastfeeding and non-breastfeeding women. The clinical appearance and a standardized evaluation can indicate rare inflammatory breast diseases. An underlying comorbidity or the evidence of rare pathogens could be suggestive. However, core needle biopsy is the main step in diagnostics. Malignancy, e.g. an inflammatory breast cancer must consistently be excluded. This mini review outlines a few rare inflammatory breast diseases, their initial presentation, and how to diagnos...

Left bundle branch block (LBBB) is the electrocardiographic correlate of a pathologic transmission of the electrical signals in the myocardium which can lead to a dyssynchronous left ventricular activation and thus to an inefficient contraction of the ventricles. It is usually the expression of an underlying cardiopathy and represents an independent risk factor of cardiovascular mortality, therefore further examination is indicated in each case. Besides the treatment of an underlying disease, a specific therapy has been ...

A distinction is made between two circadian manifestations, sleep and wake bruxism. Bruxism is a major risk factor for tooth structure and dentures. The diagnosis is based on a targeted medical history and examination. Sleep bruxism can be demonstrated by electromyography and video recording in the sleep laboratory.

Lactate is the corresponding base to lactic acid and is produced directly from pyruvate. In this reaction H+ is consumed and therefore lactate production itself cannot be directly responsible for the simultaneousl...
