Penner, I.K. - - 2010
The majority of patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) experience fatigue and for many subjects concerned it is the most disabling symptom. Fatigue is most prominent in the afternoon and may be aggravated by heat. It has a tremendous negative impact on quality of life and is often one of the ...
Fredrikson, S. - - 2010
The importance of analysis of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), especially oligoclonal IgG bands, in the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) and its predictive value in patients with clinically isolated syndromes has recently been evaluated and confirmed in several studies. Despite the focus on magnetic imaging techniques in modern MS diagnostic criteria, ...
Elkhalifa, A.S. - - 2010
Immunosuppression and immunotherapy have developed as the primary mode of therapy for multiple sclerosis (MS) and are most effective in active, relapsing stages of the disease. Cyclophosphamide has been used in the treatment of MS for over 40 years. The effectiveness of cyclophosphamide and its ability to stabilize MS patients ...
Hoogs, M. - - 2010
In addition to physical disability, multiple sclerosis (MS) is increasingly recognized for its association with neuropsychological (NP) impairment, including cognitive deficits and disorders of mood and affect. NP impairment can occur as early as the first demyelinating episode. Often insidious in nature, NP impairment has a significant impact on a ...

Health literacy is an area of nursing research that is a relatively new concept in the understandings of the patient experience of chronic disease self management. Limited health literacy has been identified as a potential contributor to poor health outcomes including poor CKD outcomes. This paper critiques the link between ...
Miguel, Susana - - 2010
Background: One goal of haemodialysis is to ensure that fluid removal is optimal and with minimal or no adverse reaction from the treatment. Accurately assessing dry weight is crucial in providing effective and safe haemodialysis.
Sullivan, Mathew - - 2010
Leptospirosis is rare and potentially fatal and can be confused with meningitis and hepatitis due to similar symptoms. Most patients experience fever, myalgias and general weakness. A small proportion develop multiple organ failure in severe cases. We report a case of leptospirosis infection that was encountered in a 58 year ...
Henson, Angela - - 2010
Background: Exercise is known to improve mental and physical functioning and to improve quality of life. The obstacles faced by individuals with chronic kidney disease on maintenance haemodialysis include increased levels of fatigue, decreased motivation, and the inability to schedule exercise around daily activities and dialysis schedules.
Walker, Rachael - - 2010
Background: International evidence suggests that pre-dialysis care is crucial for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Pre-dialysis nurses play an important role in this care.
Ayadi, Lobna - - 2010
Angiosarcomas are rare tumors that predominantly affect adults and elderly patients. Although angiosarcomas are well described in a variety of clinical settings, they have been poorly studied in children and little is known about their biology, natural history, or optimal treatment. Childhood angiosarcomas are exceedingly rare. The head and neck ...
Roggli, Victor - - 2010
Asbestosis is defined as diffuse pulmonary fibrosis caused by the inhalation of excessive amounts of asbestos fibers. Pathologically, both pulmonary fibrosis of a particular pattern and evidence of excess asbestos in the lungs must be present. Clinically, the disease usually progresses slowly, with a typical latent period of more than ...
Schneider, Frank - - 2010
Context.--Asbestosis is one of many forms of diffuse interstitial pulmonary fibrosis. Its histologic diagnosis rests on the pattern of fibrosis and the presence of asbestos bodies by light microscopy in lung biopsies.
Aguilera, Nadine - - 2010
Context.--Activation-induced cytidine deaminase, necessary for immunoglobulin somatic hypermutation and class switch recombination, is usually expressed within the follicular dendritic network but is also expressed in a population of interfollicular large B cells outside the germinal center.
Gu, Zhengming - - 2010
Context.--BK virus infections among immunocompromised patients are associated with disease of the kidney or urinary bladder. High viral loads, determined by quantitative polymerase chain reaction (PCR), have been correlated with clinical disease.
Hameed, Omar - - 2010
Context.--The differential diagnoses of prostatic carcinoma and bladder epithelial neoplasms include several histologic mimics that should be known to avoid misdiagnosis.
Yi, Eunhee - - 2010
Context.--Not uncommonly, a surgical pathologist will be requested to review excised material, with a clinical diagnosis of cancer, in which no malignancy can be identified. Often, sampling may be the issue. However, different nonneoplastic processes may mimic cancer clinically and not be recognized histologically. These are commonly referred to as ...
Donev, Kliment - - 2010
Context.--Pseudoneoplasms of the nervous system vary greatly in nature. Ranging from inflammatory to autoimmune, infectious, malformative, reactive, degenerative, and radiation induced, they all mimic true tumors. Thus, they have the potential to mislead clinicians, radiologists, and pathologists alike. Their clinical and/or neuroimaging and histologic features are readily misinterpreted as tumor. ...
Medeiros, Fabiola - - 2010
Context.--Numerous benign, proliferative, or reactive processes, often related to hormone stimulation or inflammation, occur throughout the female genital tract and may mimic benign or malignant tumors. Several of the more common pseudoneoplastic lesions are discussed in this article, including microglandular hyperplasia of the cervix mimicking well-differentiated endometrial adenocarcinoma, reactive epithelial ...
De Petris, - - 2010
Context.--The pathologist plays the leading role in distinguishing pseudoneoplasms from truly neoplastic lesions in the gastrointestinal tract.
Wick, Mark - - 2010
* Context.--Pseudoneoplastic cutaneous lesions are diverse, not only morphologically but also with respect to their causes and cellular lineages. They include proliferations of epithelial, as well as mesenchymal, elements.
Miller, Dylan - - 2010
* Context.--Primary cardiac tumors are rare and the great majority are benign neoplasms. Mass-forming reactive and pseudoneoplastic growths are less common, but recognizing and distinguishing these lesions from the neoplasms they resemble is critical to appropriate patient care.
Wick, Mark - - 2010
* Pseudoneoplastic lesions ("pseudotumors") can be seen in virtually all anatomic locations. Some organ sites, such as the lungs and skin, are overrepresented for unknown reasons, and the histologic images seen in pseudoneoplastic lesions are partially overlapping in disparate locations. More than occasionally, the degree of histologic likeness to true ...
Eversole, Galen - - 2010
* Context.--Liquid-based preparations (LBPs) and human papillomavirus testing have led to changes in cervical cytology practices. The College of American Pathologists attempts to track practice patterns using a supplemental questionnaire, which allows laboratories to report diagnostic practices.
