We report a case of chylous ascites developing the first post-operative day after laparoscopic adrenalectomy. The early initiation of treatment with total parenteral nutrition and somatostatin analog led to rapid resolution of the ascites. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of chylous ascites after laparoscopic ...

CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that summating potential/action potential (SP/AP) area ratio may not necessarily have higher sensitivity in the diagnosis of endolymphatic hydrops of Meniere's disease (MD) than SP/AP amplitude ratio in transtympanic electrocochleography (ECochG). OBJECTIVE: Recent studies suggested that SP/AP area curve ratio was more sensitive to endolymphatic hydrops ...

We report a case of severe ethanol intoxications in a 14-year-old boy whose starting blood alcohol concentration was 490 mg/dL. The intoxication led to coma with hypoventilation, hypoxemia, hypothermia, and a life-threatening situation. Elimination of ethanol followed nonlinear first-order concentration-dependent pharmacokinetics. Fluid balance was disturbed because of marked diuresis, and ...

Hemoglobin (Hb) A2 electrophoresis has been used for prenatal screening for the beta-thalassemia trait (betaTT). We retrospectively reviewed Hb capillary electrophoresis performed in our laboratory. We found that of the 122 cases showing elevated HbA2 levels, 79 cases were due to hemoglobinopathies, mostly HbS. Review of the RBC indices suggested ...

Atypical fibroxanthoma (AFX) (dermal pleomorphic sarcoma) remains a somewhat controversial entity. Some authors have averred that AFX is a fiction, suggesting that such lesions merely represent misclassified examples of spindled squamous cell carcinoma. In addition, the immunoperoxidase confirmation of AFX has been less than straightforward and has historically been approached ...
