Imaging features of Robert's uterus: Case series of a rare Mullerian duct anomaly

Robert's uterus is a rare variant of septate uterus. Patients present with recurrent abdominal pain and severe dysmenorrhoea. Magnetic resonance imaging is the investigation of choice.

Clinico-laboratory characteristics and outcome of patients with eucalyptus oil-induced/provoked seizures: A case series and systematic review of the published patients
We report five children who suffered likewise. We made a systematic search for all reported cases and performed a pooled analysis to provide a comprehensive estimate of the type of seizures, their management and outcome. In 110 cases (49 children), inhalational use was the most predominant, generalised tonic-clonic (the commonest semiology) and levetiracetam was the most common anti-convulsant treatment used. Most cases had an uneventful recovery. Adults were less likely to have prolonged and multiple seizures, requiring intensive care or mechanical ventilation.PMID:34282989 | DOI:10.1177/00494755211032095 (Source: Tropical Doctor)

Hemolytic uremic syndrome associated with rhabdomyolysis - Need to look beyond kidneys in hemolytic uremic syndrome
We describe a 31/2-year-old boy of hemolytic uremic syndrome with rhabdomyolysis, which is a rare extrarenal manifestation of hemolytic uremic syndrome. Unlike central nervous or gastrointestinal system involvement in hemolytic uremic syndrome which manifests clinically, muscle involvement may not and, if present, may worsen the existing acute kidney injury and may worsen disease prognosis. Considering the high morbidity and mortality in acute phase of hemolytic uremic syndrome, prompt evaluation to know the extent of extrarenal organ involvement at the earliest is important for management and prognosis of these patients.P...
