Objective: The authors report a rare case of uterine adenocarcinoma metastasis to both the skull base and cervical spine presenting with pathological fracture and myelopathy. Methods: We report the case of a 43-year-old Asian female with widely metastatic uterine adenocarcinoma who over the course of 3 years was diagnosed with a large clival mass and more recently a cervical spine pathological fracture presenting with myelopathy. Results: This patient underwent multiple procedures over a three-year period, including total hysterectomy with tumor debulking, endonasal biopsy of clival mass and most recently cervical corpectomy and fusion. She has received chemotherapy and radiation therapy for treatment of the unresectable clival mass and has done quite well despite having this pathology. Conclusion: This is the first documented case of clival involvement of endometrial adenocarcinoma. Additionally, this is a unique case of spinal metastatic endometrial adenocarcinoma presenting with pathological fracture and myelopathy.
Propagation characteristics of low latitude whistler
duct characteristics have been investigated based on day-time measurements at
Jammu. The morphogical characteristics of low latitude whistlers are discussed
and compared with characteristics of middle and high latitude whistlers. The Max. electron
density (Nm) at the height
of the ionosphere obtained from whistler dispersion comes out to be higher than
that of the background which is in accordance with the characteristics of
whistler duct. The equivalent width is found to be close to the satellite
observations and the characteristics of whistler duct in low latitude
ionosphere are similar to those in middle and high latitude ionosphere. The
width of ducts estimated from the diffuseness of the whistler track observed
during magnetic storm is found to lie in the range of 50 - 200 Km.
In this article, we have effectively used the Numerical
Inversion of Laplace transform to study the time-dependent thin film
flow of a second grade fluid flowing down an inclined plane through a porous
medium. The solution to the governing equation is obtained by using the standard
Laplace transform. However, to transform the obtained solutions from Laplace
space back to the original space, we have used the Numerical Inversion of Laplace
transform. Graphical results have been presented to show the effects
of different parameters involved and to show how the fluid flow evolves with
In this paper, we
propose and analyze some schemes of the integral collocation formulation based
on Legendre polynomials. We implement these formulae to solve numerically
Riccati, Logistic and delay differential equations with variable coefficients.
The properties of the Legendre polynomials are used to reduce the proposed
problems to the solution of non-linear system of algebraic equations using
Newton iteration method. We give numerical results to satisfy the accuracy and
the applicability of the proposed schemes.
