BACKGROUND Effects of dietary n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA) intake on the cardiovascular system have been reported, and thus we hypothesized that the prevalence of hypertensive cardiovascular remodeling would be lower in a fishing than a farming community. METHODS We recruited 263 essential hypertensives from a fishing and 333 from a farming(More)
A 54-year-old female was admitted to our hospital because of a spiking fever, right hypochondriac pain, right orbital pain and visual disturbance. Before admission she was treated with systemic antibiotics infusion for a diagnosis of liver abscess at the other hospital and the liver abscess almost diminished for a while. With the diagnosis of liver abscess(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to assess the predictive value of circulating levels of des-acyl ghrelin, an abundant form of ghrelin in humans, for the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in older hypertensive patients. We simultaneously evaluated other biomarkers, such as high-molecular-weight (HMW) adiponectin, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), and(More)
We reviewed the records of 4 patients with pathologically diagnosed pulmonary cryptococcosis to determine whether there was any relationship between radiographic and pathological findings. The underlying disease were diabetes mellitus (patient 1), rheumatoid arthritis treated with glucocorticoids (patient 2), and adultonset T cell leukemia (patients 3 and(More)
Fetal heart rate records of 22 patients were analysed with a computerized digitizer. A sinusoidal pattern (SP), selected by using Maeda's tentative criteria, was observed in 8 patients, and a wavy pattern (WP) in 14 patients. There were no significant differences between SP and WP cases in the mean amplitudes and frequencies, but in SP cases both(More)
A 81-year-old man was admitted to the hospital because he complained of hoarseness. Chest radiography showed a mass in the right upper mediastinum. An operation was done to remove the mass and make a conclusive diagnosis. Histologically, the tumor tissue consisted of spindle-shaped fibroblast-like cells and round histiocyte-like cells with bizarre giant(More)
