Bilateral Drop-Foot Due to Diabetes Mellitus Disease  [PDF]
Zeliha Unlu, Merve Ciniviz
Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2020, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1106013
Abstract:
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a disease in which broad spectrum neuropathies including x asymptomatic distal sensory neuropathies as well as severe radiculo- pexopathies are observed [1]. Diabetic neuropathy; symmetrical distal polyneuropathies, focal and multifocal neuropathies, inflammatory demyelinating neuropathies may occur in various forms [2]. Herein, we aimed to present a case of clinical and electroneuromyographic (ENMG) study showing the muskuloskeletal involvement of diabetes in a patient with drop-foot.

Abstract: ole of phonophoresis in dyshpagia due to cervical osteophytes Case report (5146) Total Article Views Authors: Zeliha Unlu, Sebnem Orguc, Gorkem Eskiizmir, Asim Aslan, Saliha Tasci Published Date August 2008 Volume 2008:1 Pages 11 - 13 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/IJGM.S3745 Zeliha Unlu1, Sebnem Orguc2, Gorkem Eskiizmir3, Asim Aslan3, Saliha Tasci1 1Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation; 2Department of Radiology; 3Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Celal Bayar University School of Medicine, Manisa, Turkey Objective: Treatment of patients with anterior cervical osteophytes causing dysphagia includes conservative treatment with anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants, antibiotics, and an appropriate soft diet. Physical therapy with its advantages may be an alternative method in the treatment, which was not reported previously. Case description: Phonophoresis therapy is applied in nine patients with dysphagia due to cervical osteophytes. Results: The symptom of dysphagia regressed in various degrees in all patients after phonophoresis therapy. Conclusions: Phonophoresis might be an alternative method for the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) treatment in patients with dysphagia due to cervical osteophytes.

Acta Medica Okayama , 2006,
Abstract: The aim of the study was to ascertain whether spiking of the tibial tubercle is associated with cartilage defects detected by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee joint. Angulation of the tip of the medial and lateral tubercles, and the height of the tubercles above the tibial plateau were measured on a standard anteroposterior radiograph of the knee joint. Cartilage defects in the tibiofemoral joint (TFJ) were determined by MRI examination. The lengthening and sharpening of the angles of the tubercles were significantly more prominent in the patients than controls. A strong association was found between angulation (if less than 70 degrees) and especially the height (if more than 0.16) of the medial tibial spike and MRI-detected cartilage defects in the medial tibiofemoral compartment. The predictive value of the spiking of tibial tubercles for MRI-detected cartilage defects in TFJ is related to the degree and size of the spiking. The presence of tibial spiking itself may not be a reliable sign of early OA.
Elongated Styloid Process and Cervical Spondylosis

Clinical Medicine : Case Reports , 2008,
Abstract: Background: Dysphagia, is a significant sign of many different lesions in upper digestive system especially in proximal esophagus. Tumors, gastroesophageal reflux, achalasia and extrinsic compressions are the most common causes that may lead to dysphagia in geriatric population. Cervical osteophyte induced dysphagia, is one of the uncommon reasons of dysphagia, therefore other causes of dysphagia must be excluded to establish the exact diagnosis. Eagle syndrome is one of the considerable reason which may lead to misdiagnosis in patients with cervical osteophytes. In this case report, we represent four patients who had dysphagia due to anteriorly located cervical osteophytes and evaluate the patients with special reference to Eagle syndrome.Material and methods: After a detailed anamnesis and ENT examination, cervical plain radiographs in four projections and Towne radiographs were obtained for every patient. After that, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of cervical spine and barium swallowing studies were performed to evaluate the presence of esophageal compression.Results: Eagle syndrome was excluded due to absence of other symptoms and physical signs, even though unilateral or bilateral elongation of styloid processes was found in all of the patients.Conclusion: Cervical osteophytes induced dysphagia is a rare clinical entity, diagnosis should be done by a careful examination, intensive radiologic evaluation. Moreover, all the other causes like Eagle syndrome should be excluded during the diagnosis of cervical osteophyte induced dysphagia.
An Intersting Case: A Long Pin in the Nose  [PDF]
Ilhan Unlu, Elif Nisa Unlu
International Journal of Clinical Medicine (IJCM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ijcm.2014.517137
Abstract: Intranasal foreign bodies are very common problems for ENT practitioners. However, very few case reports of a long pin in the nose are described in the literature. Our case had a pin measured as 33.9 millimeters in the right nasal vestibule, but the patient was not aware of it when she came to us. Actually she was suffering from a headache and nasal obstruction. After removal of the foreign body, the patient’s complaints were resolved.
Dispnea After Appendectomy Operation: Case Report
Zeliha ARSLAN
Trakya Universitesi Tip Fakultesi Dergisi , 2010,
Abstract: Pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis (PLCH) is a rare interstitial lung disease. Its estimated prevalence is two to five cases per million. Young male adults develop the disease most frequently. Greater than 90% of cases of PLCH occur in smokers. Diabetes insipidus (DI) occurs in about 11% to 40% of patients and pneumothoraces occur in 10% to 30% of patients. The diagnosis of PLCH can be confirmed by BAL, transbronchial biopsy, or surgical lung biopsy. We present a case referred to us with dispnea developed after appendectomy operation, coexisting with DI, and diagnosed to have PLCH using transbronchial lung biopsy.

Abstract: In Cyprus old norms and patterns of behaviour have been replaced with new norms facilitating the possibilities for compromise and the achievements of a durable peace. Now it is the international community`s duty to help to bring a just, workable and lasting settlement to the island.
Recommendation of a Path to Peace in the Cyprus Conflict
Zeliha Khashman
Journal of Applied Sciences , 2001,
Abstract: Cyprus conflict is one of the protracted social conflicts. Since 1950s, despite all the peaceful efforts no just and lasting peace between the two Cypriot communities to live in peace and security under a Federal Republic has been attained. Federal solution is one way of a structural change, which resolve nationalist or ethnic conflicts. However, conflict resolution practitioners emphasize the necessity of the development of preconditions for effective resolutions of the conflicts. Only then it is possible to create structural changes conducive to a stable peace. It is argued in this article that, in Cyprus, neither the psychological and social conditions nor the necessary mechanisms to enable a federal association to work successfully exist.
