On August 24, 1965, a 39-year-old stevedore was admitted to the Department of Surgery of the HBtel-Dieu de Quebec. The clinical picture was unusual. The patient complained of severe epigastric pain, with tenderness localized to the upper part of the abdomen. He was deeply cyanotic, this grayish hue was found especially in the face, neck, and abdomen. He was short of breath but lay flat in bed; above all, he was very anxious and agitated but did not present any evidence of incoherence or gross… 
Severe Cardiomyopathy Due to Arthroprosthetic Cobaltism: Report of Two Cases with Different Outcomes
TLDR
Two patients with cobalt-induced cardiomyopathy, initially considered candidates for heart transplantation, develop progressively worsening symptoms of cobalt toxicity following revision of a fractured ceramic-on-ceramic total hip replacement to a metal- on-polyethylene bearing.

ELEMENTAL ANALYSIS OF INDIGOFERA GERARDIANA WALL BY ATOMIC ABSORPTION SPECTROPHOTOMETER (AAS)
TLDR
The study showed the presence of substantial concentrations of micro- and macro-nutrients in IG samples of root, leaves and stem, and the window of acceptability for metallic ion is being exceeded by Fe, Ni, Cr & Co in certain parts of plants but normal in others.
Relationships of Fusarium Mycotoxins to disorders and tumors associated with alcoholic drinks
TLDR
Circumstantial evidence is presented which points to mycotoxins, especially those produced by Fusarium field‐microfungi, as the agents responsible for outbreaks of such pathological conditions as “cobalt‐beer cardiorhyopathies,”; “fetal alcohol syndrome,’; Plummer‐Vinson syndrome, and some tumors of the alimentary tract.

Clinical Aspects of Cardiomyopathy
TLDR
The object of the present communication is to suggest a general classification for cardiomyopathy and to emphasize especially the methods of clinical presentation of this condition, basing conclusions on data derived from patients studied personally.
Idiopathic myocardial hypertrophy.
Primary Myocardial Disease
TLDR
This study describes 18 patients from the University of Cincinnati Hospitals who died of congestive heart failure without clinical or pathologic evidence of a primary cause and suggests primary myocardial disease may simulate coronary artery disease because of the abnormal electrocardiogram.
Fasting in obesity. Thiamine depletion as measured by erythrocyte transketolase changes.
TLDR
Thiamine changes in patients so treated are treated using erythrocyte transketolase activity as an improved technique for functional evaluation of thiamine metabolism.

The data presented indicate that myocardial function in primary cardiomyopathy falls into three main groups: congestive, constrictive, and hypertrophie obstructive. How ever, clear-cut differences
Primary Myocardial Disease
THE TERM primary myocardial disease refers to a variety of cardiac enlargement which is of unknown cause and frequently leads to cardiac dilatation, congestive heart failure, and finally to death.
