Progressive decline in muscular strength at middle age coupled with the presence of Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) may define hand disability (HdD) as age progresses. However, there is paucity of information on the link between hand grip strength (HGS), upper limb anthropometric characteristics (ULAC) and hand disability (HdD) in patients with T2DM. This study investigated the relationships between HGS, ULAC and HdD as well as factors associated with HdD in middle-aged and older people with T2D...

Determining of Proxy and Self-report Agreement on the Stroke and Aphasia Quality of Life Scale SAQOL-39/TR

Eda İyigün and Bülent Toğram

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 29, 2021

Health-related quality of life measures are increasingly used to evaluate after stroke conditions. However, after-stroke people with severe aphasia may not able to self-report on such scales due to the severity of their communication impairment and their proxies report on behalf of them. This research aims to determine the level of agreement between people with aphasia and their proxies on the Turkish Stroke and Aphasia Quality of Life Scale-39 (SAQOL-39- TR). For this purpose, 32 people with ap...

Immunoglobulin D-Lambda Multiple Myeloma, and a Review of the Literature


Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 27, 2021

IgD multiple myeloma (MM) is a rare plasma cell neoplasm, considered to have a poor prognosis compared to the other isotypes. Many studies reported an advanced stage at the presentation. In contrast to these studies, we report a case of rare IgD-Lambda MM at the early stage. The laboratory data showed no hypercalcemia, without any renal impairment, or monoclonal spike (M-spike or paraprotein) at the Serum protein electrophoresis (SEP) but only a hypogammaglobulinemia. IF is performed with antise...
