Manordor L. Thoracic endometriosis induced repeated spontaneous pneumothorax. Case Study Case Rep. 2018; 8(2): 47 - 50.

ABSTRACT

In gynecology, endometriosis is an important pathological disorder that can be seen worldwide. It is considered an important public health problem for reproductive age women. Visceral endometriosis is a serious form of endometriosis. Thoracic endometriosis is kind of visceral endometriosis. In this report, the authors present and discuss on a case of a patient who had history of repeated spontaneous pneumothorax and finally gets the diagnosis of thoracic endometrisosis.

Keywords: Endometriosis, penumothorax

Coufal SM, Abe K. Severe hypokalemia caused by a traditional herbal remedy: a case report. Case Study Case Rep. 2018; 8(2): 44 - 46.

ABSTRACT

In Asia and Oceania, the traditional herbal remedy is widely used and accepted as a primary health care wisdom. Nevertheless, the problem of the uncontrolled non-standard remedy is usually seen. Here, the authors report a case study on severe hypokalemia caused by traditional herbal remedy. This report brings attention to recognize the possible problem of the traditional herbal remedies that exists in several countries.

Tiemsiriwatt W, Chandriga S, Kuillinorman L. Gall stone in a patient with polythemia. Case Study Case Rep. 2018; 8(2): 40 - 43.

ABSTRACT

Gall stone is an important gastrointestinal problem that can cause the abnormal liver function. There are several underlying causes of gall stones including to hemolytic anemia and hypercholesterolemia. In tropical Indochina, the tropical hemoglobinopathy is common and considered an important cause of gall stone. Nevertheless, the non-anemic hemoglobin disorders such as polycythemia can be seen. In this report, the authors present a case of gall stone in a patient with polycythemia.

Joob B, Yasri R, Abe K. Predicted prevalence of bovine cysticercosis in a rural cow
farming area: A case study on GIS based tropical epidemiology. Case Study Case Rep.
2018; 8(2): 35 - 39.

ABSTRACT

Taeniasis is an important cestode infection seen in many tropical countries. The infection
in pig and cow is common and the infected meat from those animals is considered not
safe for ingestion and this problem is seen in many poor developing countries. In this
report, the authors report the use of Geographic information System (GIS) technology for
prediction of bovine cystercosis in a rural area of Thailand in the northeastern region
namely Nakornratchasrima province where there are many cow farms. The protocol for
GIS prediction is the same as previously used in GIS studies on other tropical infections.
First, the data on cow density and prevalence of bovine cysticercosis based on meat
inspection from local Provincial Livestock Office and Public Health Office in
Nakornratchasrima province were collected and these data were further used for further
finding for a mathematical modeling for prediction of prevalence of bovine cysticercosis
in this province. From assessment the relationship between prevalence of bovine
cysticercosis derived from direct meat inspection and the density of cow population on
each corresponding section within the province. According to this study, the final
mathematic equation is Y = 5.2 *10-5 X + 4.04 where Y is the predicted prevalence (%)
of bovine cysticercosis and X is the number of cow population. This equation is further
used for creation of a specific map to represent the predicted prevalence of bovine
cysticercosis (Figure 1). This data is an important local data on the problem of bovine
cysticercosis in this area and reflects the requirement for strict food safety management.
This technique can also be used for further development of model on cysticercosis in
other regions.

Al hojaili N, Kutbi I, Al Zahrani AS, Al malky H. Pierre Robin Sequence: A clinical case presentation. Case Study Case Rep. 2018; 8(1): 9 - 12.
                                                                                                                        
ABSTRACT
Pierre Robin sequence (PRS) indicates the association of glossoptosis, micrognathia and airway blocking. Cases immediately after birth with severe dyspnea due to upper airway blocking are very unusual with this syndrome. We reported a case with PRS who developed severe dyspnea due to morphological abnormality immediately after birth and were rescued for short time by fiberoptic nasotracheal intubation. The patient had micrognathia and cleft palate, and his tongue protruded into the nasal cavity via a cleft palate. He was diagnosed as Pierre Robin sequence due to his invaginated tongue was considered an extreme type of glossoptosis. The patient also accompanied some anomalad. Unaccepted, her chromosome analysis showed a normal configuration. Moreover, tongue protruded into the nasal cavity via a cleft palate occupied pharynx and nasal cavity, resulting in severe dyspnea. Therefore, fiberoptic nasotracheal intubation was done to secure the airway for resuscitation. PRS case with extreme type of glossoptosise require resuscitation by fiberoptic intubation immediately after birth. As such, neonatologists should obtain the skill of fiberoptic intubation.

Mistro P, Gomes ROphiasis following Zika virus infection: a case report. Case Study Case Rep. 2017; 7(4): 95 - 100.

ABSTRACT

Zika virus infection is an important public health issue at present. The trichological manifestation of Zika virus infection is little mentioned in the literature. Here, the authors report a case presenting with ophiasis following Zika virus infection. According to our best knowledge, this is the first report on this problem.


Key words:  Ophiasis, Zika, infection

ABSTRACT

Cerebral Autosomal Dominant Arteriopathy with Subcortical Infarcts and Leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL) is an inherited arteriopathy whose key features include migraine headaches, recurrent subcortical ischaemic events and vascular dementia. Here, we report on a patient with the hot cross bun sign who presented with CADASIL.
