Pediatría Atención Primaria , 2009, DOI: 10.4321/S1139-76322009000700014
Abstract: asthenia is a common symptom that is shown to be a cause of medical consultation in teenagers, but is also in common in children and breastfed infants. two clinical cases are presented, one of a 4-year-old girl and another of a 14-year-old teenager who, from the same asthenia symptom, two different diagnoses were arrived at in the primary care clinic: infectious mononucleosis due to epstein-barr virus associated with pneumonia and acute renal failure. this article also deals with the anamnesis, physical examination, aetiological diagnosis, complementary examinations, and finally, for the paediatrician, the most common reasons for asthenia in children and adolescents.

Abstract: introduction: there has been a growing interest in the cross-cultural application of psychological questionnaires to assess anxiety. the translation and cross-cultural adaptation of the original instrument is the first step in validating an instrument in a new population that will permit comparisons between different populations. the goals of this study were to translate the cardiac anxiety questionnaire, assess its semantic equivalence, and perform a preliminary test with participants from the brazilian population that were drawn from different educational backgrounds. method: the cross-cultural adaptation process consisted of two translations and back translations performed by two independent evaluators; a critical evaluation of the two versions, and the development of a synthesized version. we also examined comments provided by participants on the preliminary version of the questionnaire and used them for the development of the final version. results: we report the results of the four stages for each item of the instrument. participants with tertiary education had no difficulties comprehending the translated items of the questionnaire, only pointing item 5 as ambiguous. participants from the lower educational level reported comprehension problems regarding items 2, 4, 6, 7, 10, 11 and 14. some small changes were made in our first version to enhance comprehensibility. conclusion: the use of two versions of translations, a critical examination of the two versions, and suggestions made by participants resulted in a final brazilian version with a satisfactory degree of semantic accuracy and semantic equivalence with the original version.

Content of somatostatin and cholecystokinin-8 in hypothalamus and colons in a rat model of spleen-deficiency syndrome
Zhong Xi Yi Jie He Xue Bao , 2007,
Abstract: Objective: To investigate the changes of neuropeptides content in a rat model of spleen-deficiency syndrome.Methods: Rats were randomly divided into three groups: normal group, untreated group and treatment group. There were ten rats in each group. Spleen-deficiency syndrome was induced by intragastrically administration of rhubarb concentrate in rats of the untreated and treatment group. The rats in the treatment group were intragastrically administered with Sijunzi decoction, a traditional Chinese compound herbal medicine for strengthening spleen and supporting qi. Normal saline was intragastrically administered to the rats in the normal and untreated groups. The somatostatin (SS) and cholecystokinin-8 (CCK-8) content in hypothalamus and colons was detected by the method of radioimmunoassay and the D-xylose content in urine was also detected.Results: The CCK-8 content in hypothalamus of the untreated group was higher than that of the normal group (P<0.05). SS and CCK-8 content in colons of the untreated group was higher than that of the normal group (P<0.05). The CCK-8 content in colons of the untreated group was lower than that of the treatment group (P<0.05). The excretion rate of D-xylose in the untreated group was lower than that of the normal group (P<0.05).Conclusion: The disorder of neuroendocrine regulation in rats with spleen-deficiency syndrome may be chiefly responsible for "spleen-deficency and dysfunction of spleen" in traditional Chinese medicine.
Sarcoidosis in an Athlete

Asian journal of Sports Medicine , 2011,
Abstract: Background:Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disorder of unknown etiology, characterized by "noncaseating granulomas" in different organs. Clinical signs are variable and dependent on the organ involved. Although it is often asymptomatic in athletes, considering the high level of athletic performance and the related risks due to the potential heart involvement, a particular diagnostic flow-chart to consider some other diagnoses is required. The present case report aimed to focus on the clinical approach in case of a progressive weakness associated with a reduction in global performance of an athlete. Case Presentation:Since October 2008 a 33-year-old Scandinavian professional soccer player has shown splitting headache, fever and impaired exercise tolerance. Despite some clinical aspects and symptoms that could address diagnosis of granulomatosis according to the current guidelines, the first hypothesis was indicative of a possible viral infection. Therefore, the athlete had received a drug-therapy resolving the headache and fever. However, because of the persisting weakness, several other clinical possibilities were evaluated following a more complete diagnostic flow-chart, blood and instrumental exams.Conclusion:This case report focuses on the substantial absence of symptoms during the granulomatosis disease, which makes the differential diagnosis to be often complicating. Indeed, several additional exams are required in order to establish the presence of "Non-evolutive sarcoidosis- stage I", for which the therapy is not mandatory.
Use of a Natural Compound Made of Ecklonia bicyclis Seaweed, Tribulus terrestris and Water-Soluble Chitosan Oligosaccharide, in Male Sexual Asthenia with Mild or Mild-Moderate Erectile Dysfunction and Serum Testosterone Levels at the Lower Limit of Normal  [PDF]

Health (Health) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/health.2016.815162
Abstract: Objectives: to evaluate the effectiveness of a natural compound made of Ecklonia bicyclis Seaweed, Tribulus terrestris and water-soluble chitosan oligosaccharide, in the male sexual asthenia with mild or mild-moderate erectile dysfunction and serum testosterone levels between 280 and 350 ng/dl. Materials and Methods: 84 male patients affected by reduced libido and serum testosterone levels at the lower limit of normal, were recruited. We have separated patients in three different age groups: group A (18 - 45 years), group B (45 - 59 years), group C (>60 years). All subjects answered the International index of erectile function questionnaire (IIEF-5) and underwent determination of serum total testosterone before and after 30 days of treatment. Results: Before treatment, the group A showed mean (± standard deviation) total testosterone 321.9 ± 19.2 ng/dl and mean IIEF-5 18.6 ± 1.97, in the group B it was 318.5 ± 18.1 ng/dl and 16.3 ± 2.66, and finally in the group C it was 305.4 ± 13.1 ng/dl and 14.2 ± 1.95 respectively. After treatment mean total testosterone and mean IIEF-5 were respectively: group A (448 ± 111.46 ng/dl and 21.84 ± 3.41); group B (453.8 ± 105.23 ng/dl and 20.4 ± 3.81); group C (385.8 ± 87.29 ng/dl and 16.7 ± 3.84). Conclusions: The treatment with Ecklonia bicyclis, Tribulus terrestris and water-soluble chitosan oligosaccharide might represent a safe and effective option on the improvement of libido and erectile function in man with testosterone level at the lower limit of normal.

Advances in Lung Cancer (ALC) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/alc.2015.42004
Abstract: Metastases are synonymous of malignant neoplasm in advanced stage and so associated with a poor prognosis. As the first manifestation of cancer disease, the muscle metastasis is very rare. The definitive diagnosis of its presence is made based on histology. The authors presented the case of a patient with a lung adenocarcinoma, being with first manifestation of it, a muscle metastasis only about a month later there were clinical manifestations with imaging appearance that led to the diagnosis of a primary neoplasm. The rare manifestation of the disease motivated the study and surveillance of the patient and lead to the diagnosis.
