Dengue fever is a debilitating mosquito-borne disease caused by dengue virus. We reported a case of femoral compression neuropathy due to iliopsoas hematoma complicating dengue hemorrhagic fever. Iliopsoas muscle hematoma can cause femoral neuropathy with resultant pain and paralysis. Such manifestations are not well documented in the literature. The pathogenesis ...

BACKGROUND: Q fever is a zoonotic disease caused by Coxiella burnetii, an uncommon intracellular bacterium found in livestock and domesticated dogs and cats. A minority of patients who acquire acute Q fever will subsequently develop chronic Q fever endocarditis, which often manifests in valvular insufficiency. METHOD: We review recent literature ...

Mucoceles are benign, slow-growing lesions defined as mucus-filled pseudocystic formations. Paranasal mucoceles predominantly affect the frontal sinus (60% to 65%), followed in frequency by the ethmoidal (20% to 30%), maxillary (10%), and sphenoid (2% to 3%) sinuses. Mucoceles usually arise because of sinus ostium obstruction, preceded by infection, fibrosis, inflammation, ...

Dehydration is the most common fluid and electrolyte problem among the elderly. The usual causes of water loss are frequently absent in dehydrated elderly patients. Age-related changes in total body water, thirst perception, renal concentrating ability, and vasopressin effectiveness probably predispose to dehydration. Dehydration related to infection, high-protein tube feedings, ...
