OBJECTIVE Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) represents one of the most prevalent peripheral entrapment mononeuropathies. The purpose of our study was to assess the potential correlation between intraneural hypervascularization, flexor retinaculum bowing, and median nerve cross-sectional area and the severity of CTS in cases confirmed by nerve conduction study.(More)
INTRODUCTION Solitary plasmocytoma is a rare plasmacytic cell tumor, which occurs in the head and neck region and rarely involves the mandible. PRESENTATION OF CASE We present a unique radiographic presentation of solitary bone plasmocytoma (SBP) occurring in the Jaw. A 63-year-old male presented with the left mandibular swelling and on the conventional(More)
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most commonly diagnosed disabling condition of the upper extremities. It is the most commonly known and prevalent type of peripheral entrapment neuropathy that accounts for about 90% of all entrapment neuropathies. This review aims to provide an outline of CTS by considering anatomy, pathophysiology, clinical(More)
Psychiatric disorders including depression represent clinical manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Recognition of depression in SLE patients is of utmost importance since it is treatable and can be of fatal consequences if unrecognized.

AIMS Pulmonary fibrosis is the main cause of mortality in patients with Systemic Scleroderma (SSc). This study was performed to investigate the utility of modified trans-thoracic ultrasound (TTUS) scoring system according to the comet tail sign (B-line artifacts) and to compare it with high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) findings in patients with SSc(More)
BACKGROUND A number of studies have demonstrated that health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is negatively affected by diabetic foot ulcers. The aim of this study was to compare HRQoL in diabetic patients with and without foot ulcers and to determine demographic and clinical factors influencing HRQoL. METHODS There were no variables affecting HRQoL except(More)
Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt insertion may be associated with migration into the abdominal wall, gastrointestinal tract, bladder, vagina, scrotum, and mediastinum. Migration of the VP shunt into the scrotum has been rarely reported. We present a 1 year old boy with cerebrospinal fluid hydrocele due to the migration of a VP shunt catheter into the right(More)
BACKGROUND Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), a highly prevalent condition, is a feature of metabolic syndrome and is characterized by excessive accumulation of fat in the liver cells. The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between NAFLD and carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) as an independent risk factor for atherosclerosis.(More)
OBJECTIVES Infertility is defined as the failure to conceive after 1 year of regular unprotected intercourse. It affects 10% to 15% of couples. Sonohysterography (SHG) is an accurate method for the assessment of fallopian tube patency, reflected in its high positive predictive value compared with hysterosalpingography (HSG) and laparoscopy with(More)
BACKGROUND Soft tissue foreign bodies are a common cause of orthopedic consultation in emergency departments. It is difficult to confirm their existence because conventional radiology only detects radio-opaque foreign bodies. Sonography can be a useful diagnostic method. The aim of this study is to evaluate diagnostic accuracy of sonography in detection and(More)
