Nitric oxide (NO), synthesized from ls-arginine by the enzyme endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), is a potent vasodilator and has been implicated in mediating insulin-induced uptake and metabolism of glucose in skeletal muscle. Polymorphisms of the eNOS gene have been associated with altered eNOS activity and NO levels. Although several factors have(More)
prevented by keeping the bristles inside the sheath while the brush moves near the tip of the PD catheter. Moreover, the brush has an injection port that can be used to flush the catheter with heparinized saline during brushing and while advancing the brush toward the catheter tip without the need to remove the brush from the PD catheter between each trial(More)
Psoriasis, being limited to the skin, is generally a chronic inflammatory disorder. Several glomerular diseases have been distinguished due to renal histological findings of psoriatic patients to date. The underlying pathogenetic mechanisms of these associations remain unclear because of the limited number of cases. We report a second case of focal(More)
Gitelman syndrome (GS) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by hypokalemia, metabolic alkalosis, hypomagnesemia and hypocalciuria. Glomerulonephritis associated with GS is rarely documented in the literature. We present an adult patient with GS whose renal biopsy revealed focal segmental glomerulosclerosis.
BACKGROUND Although several lines of evidence suggest that renin angiotensin system (RAS) proteins are synthesized by cyst epithelium and dilated tubules, role of intrarenal RAS in the progression of otozomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is not well known. We aimed to study the levels and clinical correlations of urinary angiotensinogen (UAGT)(More)
Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by episodic, recurrent, self-limited attacks of fever and serositis (sterile peritonitis, pleuritis, arthritis, etc). The insufficiency in restriction of mild inflammation contributes this consequence in FMF. Intrauterine devices (IUDs) have been widely used in the world for(More)
Psoas abscess and lumbar osteomyelitis due to salmonella infection is very rare, although it is frequently seen all over the world. These two complications have severe clinical progress, poor prognosis and high mortality. Here, we report a case of salmonellosis presenting with bilateral multiple psoas abscesses and lumbar osteomyelitis, which resolved(More)
