BACKGROUND Septic arthritis of the sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) is extremely rare, and usually appears to result from hematogenous spread. Predisposing factors include immunocompromising diseases such as diabetes. CASE PRESENTATION A 61-year-old man with poorly controlled diabetes mellitus presented to our emergency department with low back pain, high(More)
We present a 19-year-old man who excreted green urine after propofol infusion. The patient was admitted to our hospital for injuries sustained in a traffic accident and underwent surgery. After starting continuous infusion of propofol for postoperative sedation, his urine became dark green. Serum total bilirubin and urine bilirubin were both elevated. We(More)
Noise-free and enlarged P loops of the Frank lead system were obtained from 164 normal Japanese males and 137 females (mean age: 34.4 and 33.2 years, respectively) with computer-averaging technique of 8 consecutive beats. Automated measurements concerning 17 parameters of the P loop (P durations, magnitudes, and directions of 3 planar, spatial maximal, and(More)
A 40-year old man with Behçet's disease was admitted for severe decrease of visual acuity. Since 1987, he had suffered from oral aphtha, retinitis, erythema nodosum, genital ulcer and epididymitis. He was diagnosed as complete Behçet's disease and has been administered cyclosporin A (CYA) and colchicine (Col). Because of repeated ocular attacks and reduced(More)
(1) Frank vectorcardiographic P loops of 25 healthy males were recorded at deep inspiration and expiration by using a minicomputer system with an averaging technique. Respiratory changes in 21 P parameters were quantitatively investigated. (2) The maximal left component of the P loop, the magnitude of the horizontal maximal vector and the magnitude of the P(More)
In 1985, McCarty et al reported 10 patients with a symmetrical synovitis affecting predominately the wrists and flexor digitorum tendon sheaths associated with marked pitting edema of the dorsum of both hands and both feet. It was insisted on the clinical entity as remitting seronegative symmetrical synovitis with pitting edema (RS3PE syndrome). These(More)
