A unusual type of oral desquamation appeared as grayish-white gelatinous membranes on the floor of the mouth, lips, vestibules, and gingiva in a 50-year-old woman. The painless desquamation was caused by synthetic dentifrice detergents (foaming agents) and was exacerbated by the patient's use of drugs with antisialic action.
An investigation of magnetic resonance (MR)-induced hot spots in a high-resolution human model is performed, motivated by safety aspects for the use of MR tomographs. The human model is placed in an MR whole body resonator that is driven in a quadrature excitation mode. The MR-induced hot spots are studied by varying the following: (1) the temporal specific(More)
Recent publications of the magnetic resonance safety profile of neurostimulators, cardiac pacemakers, and other implanted devices imply that these devices are no longer a contraindication for magnetic resonance imaging. It is very promising that patients who have these implanted devices may in the future no longer be denied an important diagnostic modality.(More)
In a consanguineous family of two siblings, both with nanophthalmos, one was found to also have bilateral exfoliation syndrome. This combination of conditions has not, to our knowledge, previously been reported and has not had any apparent negative consequences. Her sister has manifested typical complications of nanophthalmos, including angle-closure(More)
