We report two cases of fibromyalgia occurring during the course of a long-standing narcolepsy/cataplexy. This association is probably not fortuitous and we propose an easy clinical procedure to search for narcolepsy/cataplexy in these patients. Narcolepsy/cataplexy is a treatable condition requiring drugs that in turn may improve in the long-term symptoms ...

This review summarises comparative aspects of equine pregnancy and birth. The allantochorion covers the entire endometrial surface of the mare's uterus and the placenta is microcotyledonary and epitheliochorial in structure. The foetus has, therefore, to pass through the allantochorion at birth. The umbilical cord has amniotic and allantoic portions and ...
