OBJECTIVE Compulsive hoarding is a debilitating problem that is often associated with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. However, the precise nosology of compulsive hoarding has yet to be determined. METHOD Participants were 25 patients with severe compulsive hoarding with OCD and 27 patients with severe(More)
Traumatic life events and early material deprivation have been identified as potential environmental risk factors for the development of pathological hoarding behavior, but the evidence so far is preliminary and confounded by the presence of comorbid obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). This study retrospectively examined the occurrence of(More)
Oesophageal penetration and migration of foreign bodies are fairly rare occurrences. Most reported cases in the literature involve fish bones, which are eventually found in the lateral neck soft tissue or thyroid lobule. We present a case of a migrating fish bone in an elderly female which was found embedded in her right sternocleidomastoid muscle. The fish(More)
Dengue continues to be a public health problem in Malaysia showing an upward trend from 27.5 cases/100,000 population in 1990 to a high of 123.4 cases/100,000 population in 1998 during the global pandemic, declining to 31.99 cases /100,000 population in the year 2000 based on notification of clinically-diagnosed cases.

A novel VLSI implementation of the Viterbi algorithm based on a cascade architecture is presented. Survivor sequence memory management is implemented using a new single read pointer traceback technique. The overall design for a 16-qtate, rate 1/2 decoder requires about 26000 transistors and a core area of 8.5 mma in a 1.2 pm two-level metal CMOS technology.
Experiential avoidance can be defined as the tendency to avoid contact with unwanted internal experiences. Current conceptualizations of pathological hoarding appear broadly consistent with an experiential avoidant model. Eighty participants in four groups, namely hoarding disorder (HD) without comorbid obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), HD with comorbid(More)
