The ideal treatment procedure for GI remains controversial. PRESENTATION OF CASE A 63-year-old female was admitted to our hospital following persistent nausea and vomiting for 7 days.

The cloaca is temporally formed and eventually divided by the urorectal septum (URS) during urogenital and anorectal organ development. Although congenital malformations, such as anorectal malformations (ARMs), are frequently observed during this process, the underlying pathogenic mechanisms remain unclear. β-Catenin is a critical component of canonical Wnt(More)
The medial preoptic nucleus (MPN) and the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) of mice contain sexually dimorphic nuclei (SDNs) that are larger and have more neurons expressing calbindin D-28K (CB), a calcium-binding protein, in males than females. However, it is largely unknown whether such SDNs exist in species other than rodents. In this study, we(More)
We describe a Japanese boy with ring chromosome 18 in whom abnormal myelination was observed on magnetic resonance imaging. Cytogenetic investigation revealed 46, XY, r(18) (p11.2 q21.33). T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging scan of the brain demonstrated high signal intensity consistent with abnormal myelination. Microsatellite marker analysis of DNA(More)
