A 28 year-old bodybuilder died of myocardial infarction, caused by coronary atheroslerosis. Other autopsy findings were fibrosis interstitialis myocardii and endocardii. The increased atheromatosis in this patient may have progressed because of use of anabolic steroids in combination with an protein-rich diet containing 2-3 g cholesterol daily. The patient(More)
The training methods given to patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are reviewed. Recent studies indicate that patients with moderately active RA may tolerate physical training. Treatment with isometric training and rest-therapy have less beneficial effects than dynamic training with strength and aërobic condition training. Two training studies have shown(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the safety of isokinetic knee extensor strength training, and its effectiveness with regard to knee extension, in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS Nine women with RA, all in functional stage II or III, underwent a low-intensity strengthening protocol with 48 repetitions at 50% of maximal voluntary contraction, 3 times(More)
The effects of physical training on elderly, fragile patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who are on low-dose steroids were investigated. The controlled study included 24 patients who had been treated with low-dose steroids for 2 years. Each patient was assigned either to a treatment group receiving training or to an untrained control group. The training(More)
The incidence of paresis due to herpes zoster (HZ) infections are reported very differently in the literature with rates varying from 0.5 to 31%. Many of the paresis are presumed to be undiagnosed on account of topographic dissociation, variable periods from the cutaneous affection to the muscular involvement, masking of the paresis by pain, paresis of the(More)
For decades, physical training of rheumatoid arthritis (RA)-patients has been controversial, especially for patients with active disease. The aim of this study was to investigate whether RA-patients could receive graduated training without increasing the activity of the disease. In a controlled cross-over study the effect of graduated progressive training(More)
It is well known that patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis have a reduced muscular function. The positive effect of physical training on rheumatic patients has been shown. In this study the effect of exercise therapy performed in a heated swimming pool has been evaluated for eight patients in a non-acute stage of rheumatoid arthritis. The median(More)
A life-threatening T. gondii pericarditis developed in a patient with symptoms corresponding to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with high concentrations of antinuclear antibodies and lymphadenopathy. The diagnosis would have been SLE-associated serositis, had not pericardial fluid been inoculated into mice, because pericarditis is frequently seen in SLE(More)
