1.1. Background: Streptococcus constellatus is an opportunistic pathogen of Streptococcus angina. It is easily to be ignored by routine clinical laboratory tests for its prolonged anaerobic culture environment.
This joint report by a group of noted human biologists in Beijing examines secular growth of school boys and girls, 7 to 17 years of age, in Beijing, over the half century, 1955 to 2010, by 10 year interval, based on derived data from published researches for the period of 1955 to 1975 and Chinese National Surveys of Students Constitution and Health for the rest of the period.
A Rare Complication Following SARS-Cov-2 Infection: ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction and Bilateral Pulmonary Embolism.
Sars CoV-2 infection has been associated with a hypercoagulabil ity leading to increased incidence of thromboembolism. However, it is exceedingly rare to see presence of both venous and arterial thromboembolism simultaneously. Herein, we report an unusual presentation of a 69-year-old male with COVID -19 who initially had acute inferior myocardial infarction secondary to thrombotic occlusion of right coronary artery followed by bilateral pulmonary embolism. Healthcare providers need to be aware of this unusual but potential coexistence of two life-threatening events in order to avoid fatal consequences.
Acute pancreatitis is a reversible inflammatory process that, de pending on local or systemic involvement, can be mild or severe, with vesicular lithiasis and alcoholism being the 2 main causes, which together cause pancreatitis in 80% of cases. Some reviews attribute hypertriglyceridemia as the third cause of this entity (1.3 to 38%) of the cases reported. There is also a case report of acute pancreatitis with serum values of normal pancreatic enzymes.
1.1. Rationale: The epithelioid trophoblastic tumour (ETT) is a very rare type of gestational trophoblast neoplasm (GTN), ac counting for 0.5%-2.0% of all GTNs. With their unusual ability to simulate an invasive epithelioid neoplasm, ETTs frequently pose a diagnostic challenge, especially when they involve the uterine cervix. ETTsare caused by the malignant transformation of inter mediate trophoblasts, so they are not sensitive to chemotherapy. Surgery is the primary treatment.
