Spontaneous acute subdural hematoma as an initial presentation of choriocarcinoma: A case report
Brandon G Rocque, Mustafa K Bakaya
Journal of Medical Case Reports , 2008, DOI: 10.1186/1752-1947-2-211
Abstract: The patient is a 34-year-old woman whose initial presentation of widely metastatic choriocarcinoma was an acute subdural hematoma, requiring decompressive craniectomy. Histopathologic examination of the tissue showed no evidence of choriocarcinoma, but the patient was found to have diffuse metastatic disease and cerebrospinal fluid indices highly suggestive of intracranial metastasis.Choriocarcinoma frequently metastasizes intracranially. We review the diverse possible manifestations of this process. In addition, the cerebrospinal fluid:serum beta-human chorionic gonadotropin ratio is an important factor in diagnosing these cases. Finally, the role of the neurosurgeon is discussed.Choriocarcinoma is a rare gestational trophoblastic disease that complicates approximately 1 in 50,000 term pregnancies and 1 in 30 hydatidiform moles[1]. Among confirmed cases of choriocarcinoma, 45% occur after molar pregnancy, 24% after normal term pregnancy, 25% after spontaneous abortion, and 5% after ectopic pregnancy[2]. Prognosis of this disease is generally good, 80–90% long-term survival with chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgical excision in appropriate cases[3]. One of the indicators of a poor prognosis is intracranial metastases, which complicate between 3 and 28% of gestational choriocarcinoma[1]. Here we report a case of subdural hematoma as the first presentation of choriocarcinoma and present a review of the literature pertaining to subdural hematoma in this setting.The patient is a 34-year-old woman who had an acute episode of excruciating headache and was later found obtunded. She had a history of a normal pregnancy three years prior to presentation. She then had an abnormal pregnancy requiring dilation and evacuation at 10–12 weeks that was found to be a molar pregnancy. She became pregnant again 9 months after the dilation and evacuation of the molar pregnancy. This ended in a spontaneous, uncomplicated delivery 5 months prior to her presentation. There was no histor

Dicle Medical Journal , 2011,
Abstract: We aimed to inverstigate changes in family functions in patients with premature ejaculation.Materials and methods: In the present study, study group were randomly selected from Mustafa Kemal University Medical School Research and Training Hospital Urology Department outpatients clinic. Control group were selected among healthy volunteers. Totally 30 patients were included in the PE group and 30 healthy volunteers were included in the control group. Subjects were examined by the same psychiatrist. Beck Anxiety Inventory and Family Assessment Scale were applied to both groupsResults: Compared with the control group, premature ejaculation patients had significantly higher anxiety scores (p=0.001) and more deterioration in problem solving (p=0.001), communication (p=0.022), affective responsiveness (p=0.011), behavior control (p=0.032), and affective involvement in their families (p=0.011). There were no difference in terms of roles and general functions scores (p>0.05).Conclusion: It can be concluded that there is deterioration in family functions in patients with premature ejaculation, Therefore, approaches targeting family functions may be beneficial in the treatment of these patients.
Synthesis and antimicrobial activity of new crown ethers of Schiff base type
Journal of the Serbian Chemical Society , 2007,
Abstract: New crown ether ligands of the Schiff base type (4a–d) were synthesized by the reaction of 2-hydroxybenzaldehyde, 3-hydroxybenzaldehyde, 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde and 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde with 6,7-dihydro-13H-dibenzo [e,h] [1,4]dioxonin-2,11-diamine (3). The structures of ligands were investigated by elemental analysis as well as IR, UV–visible, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR and MS spectroscopic data. The antimicrobial and anti-yeast activities of the ligands were screened in vitro against the organisms Escherichia coli ATCC 11230, Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538, Klebsiella pneumoniae UC57, Micrococcus luteus La 2971, Proteus vulgaris ATCC 8427, Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853, Mycobacterium smegmatis CCM 2067, Bacillus cereus ATCC 7064, Listeria monocytogenes ATCC 15313, Candida albicans ATCC 10231, Kluyveromyces fragilis NRRL 2415, Rhodotorula rubra DSM 70403, Debaryomyces hansenii DSM 70238 and Hanseniaspora guilliermondii DSM 3432.

Elif ?en,Ak?n Kaya,Mustafa K?l??kap,Füsun ülger
Turk Toraks Dergisi , 2008,
Abstract: Mediastinal lymphadenopathies, parenchymal consolidation, and pericardial effusion were detected in a fifty-eight year-old woman presenting with the complaints of dyspnea, chest pain and weakness. Echocardiographic findings were evaluated as compatible with cardiac amyloidosis. A monoclonal gammapathy in protein electrophoresis and IgG lambda monoclonal gammapathy were detected in immunelectrophoresis. Skin involvement was demonstrated by skin biopsy. The patient had the diagnosis of primary amyloidosis with lung involvement proven by transbronchial lung biopsy. Pulmonary amyloidosis may be part of systemic amyloidosis, or it may be detected as a localised amyloidosis. Among the types of systemic amyloidosis, lung involvement is mostly present in primary amyloidosis. There is a significant association between lung and cardiac involvement. In these patients, chest X-ray and thoracic CT should be performed to evaluate the lung involvement. Bronchoscopy is an important diagnostic tool for investigating the tracheobronchial amyloidosis as well as for providing the histopathological diagnosis. The presence of cardiac involvement is the most important prognostic factor.

Dicle Medical Journal , 2012,
Abstract: Objectives: In this study, we aimed to evaluate our clinicalexperience about the catheter ablation of atrioventricularnodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) includingcomplications and long-term outcomes.Materials and Methods: The study population consistedof 166 patients with AVNRT, 52 of whom from hospital-1and 114 of who from hospital-2. Radio-frequency (RF)ablation therapy was applied after the basic electrophysiologystudy. Complications in RF ablation and long-termrecurrences were noted.Results: More than 90% of the patients had symptomspersisting for more than one year and again more than90% of those were suffering at least 2 episodes per month.The success rate of RF ablation was 98.2% for the entirestudy population. The recurrence rate was observed tobe 3% (n=5) throughout the follow-up period. In the multivariateCox regression analysis; young age, operator`sexperience (Hospital 1 vs. 2), and presence of atypicalAVNRT were the independent predictors of long-term recurrence.Major complications related to AVNRT ablationare not encountered frequently. Death, myocardial infarctionand stroke were not seen in any of the patients, however,two patients developed deep vein thrombosis. Minorcomplications in RF ablation included asymptomatic minimal/mild pericardial effusion (n=5), femoral hematoma requiringno transfusion (n=5) and transient AV block (n=5).Atrio-ventricular block requiring permanent pacemakerimplantation was found only in one patient (0.6%).Conclusion: Radio-frequency catheter ablation in patientswith AVNRT appears to be a safe and effectivemethod. The presence of atypical AVNRT, young age andoperator`s experience were observed to be the independentpredictors of long-term recurrence.

Abstract: The diaphragm provides the progression between certain structures and the chest cavity by means of an anatomic hiatus. The diaphragm is the second most functional muscle structure of the body after the heart. Diaphragm injuries may result from serious blunt or penetrating injuries. While most of the blunt diaphragm infuries are caused by traffic accidents and falls from heights, some may occur as a result of other blunt traumas to the lower chest or epigastrium. Diaphragm injuries may be seen in t 0.8-1.6% of the patients hospitalized due to blunt abdominal trauma. In this study, we will report that a diaphagm injury of a patient who has a history of blunt abdominal trauma was diagnosed six months after the trauma when he was admitted to hospital because of stomach ache and pain in his left chest.

Akademik Acil T?p Olgu Sunumlar? Dergisi (AKATOS) , 2013,
Abstract: High oxygen (O2) consuming organs such as the brain and the heart are easily affected by carbon monoxide (CO) intoxication. The most frequent changes are bilateral ischemic lesions and necrosis in the grey substance of brain tissue, particularly in the globus pallidus. Depending on the severity of intoxication, cerebral and cardiac findings may occur as well as visual impairment, although rare. Visual disorders may develop in patients recovering from coma. In this case report, we present a case with severe loss of vision consequent to CO intoxication, who demonstrated a complete response to long-term hyperbaric oxygen treatment.

Balkan Medical Journal , 2011,
Abstract: Objective: This study describes cloning and sequence analysis of the gene coding for the cathepsin L2 gene from a F. hepatica isolate from Turkey. Methods: The adult form of F. hepatica was collected from the infected cattle liver and cDNA was obtained following total RNA isolation. After amplification of the gene by PCR, ligation and transformation was performed. Finally, DNA sequencing and phylogenetic analysis were performed.Results: The gene consists of an open reading frame of 981 nucleotides corresponding for 327 amino acids. There are five amino acid positions where Firat F. hepatica cathepsin L2 differs from the F. hepatica cathepsin L2 Dublin strain. This sequence was the first cathepsin L2 gene from a Turkey isolate and the second cathepsin L2 sequence entered into the database. A comparative amino acid sequence analysis indicated that there is about 99% homology with the F. hepatica cathepsin L2 reported in the literature, 98% homology with the F. hepatica cathepsin L-like protease, and 85% homology with the F. hepatica cathepsin L1 isolated in the Elaz region at the nucleotide level. Conclusion: The amino acid differences between sequences could be evaluated for further immunization and diagnosis studies.
