The patient began to suffer from hyperpathia in his childhood. Then an electric shock-like pain indifferent support areas prevented the patient from putting pressure on these areas for a long period. The treatment with carbamazepine made the stabbing pain disappear. However, since then a pressure-induced soreness of varying intensity has developed in different body support areas if the stimulation on them exceeds a certain limit or if the dose of carbamazepine or the level of aerobic physical ex...

Lipomas are the most common benign soft-tissue tumour arising from mature adipose tissue “composed of mature adipocytes”, mainly from subcutaneous tissues and usually surrounded by a thin fibrous capsule. Still, the underlying cause of lipomas remains unclear. In literature, different theories described the pathogenesis of adipose tissue tumours, and also different histological variants have mentioned. It can occur anywhere in the body, its incidence being 0.1-5% of all head and neck tumours...

A previously healthy 9-year-old girl presented with a 3-day history of high fever (> 40 °C) and acute pain in the right shoulder. A blood chemical profile showed a C-reactive protein level of 9.7 mg per liter and a white cell count of 12,500 per cubic millimeter. Shoulder radiographs were normal, but magnetic resonance imaging showed acute osteomyelitis around proximal humeral epiphyseal plate and a subperiosteal abscess around the humeral neck (Figure 1).

In order to regenerate bone and soft tissue, multiples types of treatment were developed including the use of bone grafting, membranes and growth factor/cytokines/host modulating agent. Leukocyte-platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF) is a second-generation platelet concentrate that forms a natural fibrin matrix with immune regulation node and inflammation retrocontrol proprieties, which can be useful in healing of apical defects. In the present case, bovine bone substitute graft was associated with L-PRF...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: July 11, 2020
In this work, an association between chronic consumption of high fat diet (HFD) and changes of cognitive ability in C57BL/6J mice was ascertained. The Morris water maze was employed to determine effects of germinated Sang-Yod rice (GR) supplement on hippocampal-dependent memory tasks in regard to spatial learning and memory. Improved cognitive impairment was demonstrated when germinated Sang-Yod rice at a dose of 0.25% per kilogram body weight per day was consumed by HFD-induced mice for 12 week...
