Ricardo Goncalves Schroder, Rob Roy L Martin, Valerie L Bobb, Anthony Nicholas Khoury, Ian James Palmer and Hal David Martin
Article Type: Case Series | First Published: April 27, 2016
The detailed history, physical examination, imaging, diagnostic testing, and physical therapy of six subjects diagnosed with deep gluteal syndrome were retrospectively analyzed and reviewed. Conservative treatment included neuropsychiatry management, intra-muscular injections through CT guidance, intra-pelvic assessment/therapy, and a home exercise program. The Visual analog scale (VAS), modified Harris Hip Score (mHHS) was utilized to measure outcomes of the non-operative treatment.

Does Breast Feeding Protect from Development of Breast Disease?
Muna M Baslaim, Forough Farrokhyar, Shefaa A Al-Amoudi, Arwa A Ashoor and Oussamah M Saidam
Article Type: Original Article | First Published: April 20, 2016
We retrospectively analyzed the data base of the breast unit at King Fahd Hospital from January 2000 till May 2012. We calculated proportions with 95% confidence intervals (CI) and used Logistic regression analysis to explore the predictors. Odds ratios with 95% CI were reported and p value of 0.05 was considered for significance. Breast feeding data were available for 1970 parous women of which 1856 (94.3%; 95% CI: 93.1%-95.2%) breast fed their babies.

Endometrioma Complicated by a Rare Bleeding Disorder Mimicking Ovarian Cancer
Mitchell Hoffman, Odette Daly and John Bomalaski
Article Type: Case Report | First Published: April 18, 2016
Hemophilia A is a congenital X-linked recessive bleeding disorder due to factor VIII deficiency. It is exceedingly rare in females. The association of the most common bleeding disorder (Von Willebrand Disease) and hemoperitoneum secondary to a hemorrhagic corpus luteum is well known. Most women with Hemophilia A are asymptomatic but scattered moderate and severe cases have been described.

The Effects of Manual Mobilization on the Mobility of the Thoracic Spine in Patients with Ankylosing Spondylitis
Uwe Lange, Martin Sperling, Katrin Richter, Gabriel Dischereit, Ulf Muller-Ladner and Ingo H. Tarner
Article Type: Original Article | First Published: April 26, 2016
Two groups, each consisting of 12 patients, were treated with standard physiotherapy during a regular inpatient stay. After randomization, one group was also treated with manual mobilization of the thoracic spine for an average of 6 sessions, whereas the other group only received conventional physiotherapy. The primary outcome parameter was the mobility of the thoracic spine represented by the Ott's sign. The secondary outcome parameters were pain (VAS), respiratory function (differences of chest expansion and inspiratory vital capacity - IVC), Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index (BASDAI), and Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index (BASFI).

Cutaneous Horn of the Breast: A Rare Clinical Feature
Cedric Nadeau, David Desseauve and Emilie Laban
Article Type: Letter to Editor | First Published: April 11, 2016
A benign cutaneous horn was evocated as its base was thin but the diagnostic of a pre invasive intraepithelial dysplasia or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin had to be eliminated by histological examination. It looked like a solid elongated keratinized tumor connected to the skin by a thin bridge of pink/red regular skin (Figure 1 and Figure 2). No evidence of pre invasive skin lesion was found around. The patient had an excision of the lesion and its base under local anesthesia.

Fatemeh Ghaffari, Zahra Rahnavard, Mahvash Salsali and Soroor Parvizi
Article Type: Research Article | First Published: April 05, 2016
Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a challenge of the 21st century. The management of the diseases confronts numerous issues which lead to undesirable results of care consequences. The aim of this study is to explain factors involved in the confusion of mothers with GDM due to the multidimensionality of healthcare and therapeutic care. The present study was carried out in 2014 with a qualitative method. Purposive sampling was employed to select 17 pregnant women with GDM who had referred to health centers affiliated with Tehran University of Medical Sciences.

Amniotic Fluid Embolism: Combined Treatment with Surgery and Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Support - A Case Report
Arnon Wiznitzer, Rinat Gabbay-Benziv, Eran Altman, Dan Aravot and Philippe Biderman
Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 28, 2016
A 42-year-old gravida 1, 40-weeks' gestation, presented with rupture of membranes in labor. Her history and prenatal care were unremarkable except for obesity. On physical examination, blood pressure was 156/91 mmHg with no other signs of pre-eclamsia. Due to non-progression at active labor, cesarean section was performed with extended "top-up" epidural and delivery of a healthy boy. Immediately after removal of the placenta, the patient reported chest pain, and became unresponsive. ECG (electrocardiography) demonstrated asystole.

Article Type: Original Research Article | First Published: June 01, 2016
An electronic survey of Dietitians New Zealand members was undertaken. A link to the survey was disseminated through their weekly electronic newsletter. Survey responses were analyzed using descriptive statistics and responses from pediatric and adult dietitians were compared using Fisher's exact test and Chi-squared test. Open ended questions were summarized using thematic analysis. The responses of New Zealand dietitians were compared to dietitian practice internationally and current inflammatory bowel disease standards of care.

An Idiopathic Case of Recurrent Spontaneous Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome
Alessandra Ainsworth, Zaraq Khan and Jani Jensen
Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 26, 2016
We report a case of recurrent spontaneous ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). The patient presented at 8 weeks gestation. Due to severity of symptoms, the patient required both inpatient and outpatient management. Her symptoms resolved at 11 weeks gestation and the pregnancy was carried to term. Recurrent spontaneous OHSS is a rare and potentially morbid event. While most cases will eventually resolve, patients require careful diagnosis, surveillance, and supportive care.

Characterization of Variant Periodic Fever Phenotypes
Michael D Puricelli, Christopher I Newberry, Ryan M Neff, Michael S Cooperstock and Eliav Gov-Ari
Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 01, 2016
469 charts were reviewed and 31 potential cases identified. 29 individuals were included with 20 successfully contacted. 11 cases met the classic definition (CD), 9 had intermittent cardinal symptom(s) (IS), and 9 had isolated periodic fever (IPF). Treatment included observation, steroid administration, and/or surgery (tonsillectomy or adenotonsillectomy). Steroids terminated each episode in all treated patients, 9/11 with CD and 11/18 with IS/IPF. When steroid treatment shortened the inter-episode interval, higher doses reversed this effect.
