We report on a 57-year-old woman with three episodes of ischemic strokes and hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT). Tests for inherited and acquired thrombophilia showed elevated anticardiolipin immunoglobulin (Ig)M antibodies (on three separate occasions), anti-prothrombin IgG antibodies, and the heterozygous form of factor V Leiden. This is the first case of ...

The diagnosis of stroke and the ability to distinguish the subtypes is central in the management of patients. This CT study has confirmed an increased prevalence of stroke (CVA) among Ghanaians. It has also reaffirmed a relatively higher incidence (52.9%) of spontaneous intracranial haemorrhage over cerebral infarcts among the 1,172 ...

A national multi-disciplinary audit showed variation in SLT practice on the decision to review pre-school children or place them on waiting lists following initial assessment. Audit evidence suggests some reasons for these differences and contributing factors are illustrated by case history examples. Current health-care policies encourage practitioners to make decision-making ...

Although fine-needle aspiration (FNA) is accepted as the method of choice for the initial evaluation of lymph nodes for metastatic carcinomas, its utility as the initial diagnostic procedure for hematopoietic processes is less established.

Necrotizing fasciitis is a rapidly spreading, life-threatening, bacterial disease. Mortality rates have been estimated to vary between 8.7% and 74%. Mortality depends on many factors, one of which is early recognition. Necrotizing fasciitis of dental origin has a low prevalence and as such presents diagnostic challenges for the dentist. The ...

Several reports of cases of experienced artists showing neglect after a brain lesion can be gleaned from the literature. The analysis of their drawings might provide better insight into the symptoms of neglect than that of non-artists's production. However, most of these reports are anedoctal. We describe in some detail ...

Pleistocene biogeographic events have traditionally been ascribed a major role in promoting speciations and in sculpting the present-day diversity and distributions of vertebrate taxa. However, this paradigm has recently come under challenge from a review of interspecific mtDNA genetic distances in birds: most sister-species separations dated to the Pliocene. Here ...
