Topics from this paper

Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus with Gastric Trichobezoar
Trichobezoars are gastric concretions composed of hair, usually found in long haired girls or young women [1]. Definite correlation exists between bezoars and psychotic illness and disordersExpand
Bezoars: implicated drugs and avoidance strategies.
TLDR
Although bezoars are rare, it is important that the clinician is aware of the possibility of their development, particularly in susceptible individuals, and recourse to laparotomy is frequently required to treat them. Expand
A CASE OF PERSIMMON BEZOAR ASSOCIATED WITH MULTIPLE GASTRIC ULCER AND EARLY GASTRIC CANCER
TLDR
In this case, the patient had a 10-year history of ulcers and it is thought that functional and morphologic changes together with age factors all contributed to the generation of the gastrolith. Expand
Bezoars--when the 'knot in the stomach' is real.
TLDR
Likelihood of bezoar formation is increased in patients who has undergone gastrointestinal surgery, and patients who have had gastric reduction for morbid obesity may form a high-risk population. Expand
Antacid bezoar in a premature infant.
Dialysis of HbA1c
TLDR
Colonic dysfunction was described by Battle et al. in 12 diabetic patients with severe constipation, suggesting an autonomic neuropathy that leads to an absent postparietal gastrocolic response. Expand

AMITRIPTYLINE PLASMA-CONCENTRATION AND CLINICAL EFFECT A World Health Organisation Collaborative Study
TLDR
There seems little advantage in routine monitoring of AT and NT, since variations in plasma-levels do not account for the considerable variation in therapeutic outcome, and no important correlations were found between steady-state plasma- levels and therapeutic outcome or corrected side-effects. Expand
Amitriptyline plasma levels and clinical response in primary depression
TLDR
The results strongly suggest the presence of a positive correlation between plasma levels and clinical improvement in patients with primary depression. Expand
Terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase activities in human blood leukocytes and lymphoblast cell lines: high levels in lymphoblast cell lines and in blast cells of some patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia in acute phase
TLDR
It is confirmed that high levels are characteristic of thymus gland with both human and calf tissue and that elevated levels may be found in some cases of acute lymphocytic leukemia and that in chronic myelogenous leukemia in acute blast phase of the disease the proliferative blast response may not always be myeloblasts but inSome cases it may be lymphoblasts. Expand
Spontaneous chromosomal breakage and high incidence of leukemia in inherited disease.
TLDR
It is the opinion that contradictory results from in vitro investigations are not yet confirmed and it is premature to subgroup the various diseases, but a comparison of the cytogenetic data, the clinical picture, as well as the course of the diseases may lead to a conceptualization of the unknown metabolic defect. Expand
Squamous cell carcinomas in Fanconi's anemia.
Squamous cell carcinomas have occurred in two more patients with Fanconi's anemia, suggesting that the gene for this syndrome predisposes the individual to solid tumors as well as leukemias.
