What Is the Most Common Type of Cardiomyopathy?
Discussion Barth syndrome is characterized by a dilated cardiomyopathy, proximal skeletal muscle weakness, neutropenia and short stature that usually presents at birth or soon after. It is a rare X-linked recessive disease process caused by mutations in the TAZ gene. The TAZ gene codes for tafazzin which alters cardiolipin in mitochondria. Characteristic facies can be seen especially in infancy including a tall and broad forehead, prominent chin and full cheeks, larger ears, and deep-set eyes. Most patients present at birth or soon afterwards but some may not until later in life. Life expectancy is reduced with many childr...

Science Saturday: A hard look at a devastating heart disease
Though rare, cardiac sarcoidosis is a condition that can wreak havoc on the heart. It can be triggered by environmental or infectious agents and is characterized by an overactive immune response, involving clusters of white blood cells that aggregate in heart tissue. Those clusters can result in the need for a pacemaker, and may even [...] (Source: News from Mayo Clinic)

What Causes Post-Inflammatory Hypopigmentation?
Discussion Hypopigmentation can be worrisome for many families because of cosmesis and the worry that “something is wrong.” The normal natural changes in skin-tone over the year due to different light exposure and wide variations within individuals is not something that many people are aware of. Post-inflammatory hypopigmentation is a common cause of hypopigmentation. Vitiligo is the most common cause of depigmentation. Vitiligo is an acquired, depigmenting disorder with typical lesions appearing as milky white macules with distinct margins that are not scaly. Hair (including eyebrows and eyelashes) can be dep...

Here I was in the middle of this new journey, and I couldn’t keep one eye open. I made an emergency appointment with an ophthalmologist who then sent me to see a specialist. The inflammation in my eye remained for weeks. Eventually it cleared up only to reoccur again a few weeks later. Since 2013...

What Causes Uveitis?
Discussion Inflammation of the middle layer of the eye, or uvea, is termed uveitis. Uveitis can be divided into anterior, intermediate or posterior uveitis by involving the anterior (iris and ciliary body), intermediate (vitreous) or posterior (choroid and usually retina) compartments. Panuveitis involves all 3 compartments. Duration can also be used to classify uveitis. Acute is 6 weeks and> 3 months is chronic persistent uveitis. Episodic periods of inactivity and reactivity that last more than 3 months are called recurrent uveitis. A third way to characterize uveitis is if it is granulomatous or not. Uveitis increase...
