Abdominal Trauma, Penetrating : Article by Lewis Kaplan, MD
Abdominal Trauma, Penetrating - Reports of penetrating abdominal trauma appeared in literature as early as Homer’s Iliad, in which King Menelaus was pierced by an arrow in his abdomen. Early penetrating trauma took the form of impalements upon wood or crude metal, while lacerations frequently stemmed from animal attacks sustained during hunting and, later, injuries from crude wood- or metal-based implements.As technology advanced through the metal ages, weaponry designed for hunting was used for local defense and, eventually, conquest. ...

Acute Poststreptococcal Glomerulonephritis : Article by Luther Travis, MD
Acute Poststreptococcal Glomerulonephritis - Glomerulonephritis (GN) is the term generally reserved for the variety of renal diseases in which inflammation of the glomerulus, manifested by proliferation of cellular elements, is secondary to an immunologic mechanism. The modification of this term by the adjective acute (eg, acute glomerulonephritis [AGN], poststreptococcal acute glomerulonephritis [PSAGN]) has imposed temporal restrictions and, as most commonly used by the clinician, defines an almost characteristic clinicopathologic correlation. The term also implies certain distinctive features concerning etiology, pathogenesis, ...

Allergic Fungal Sinusitis : Article by John E McClay, MD
Allergic Fungal Sinusitis - Over the past 2 decades, allergic fungal sinusitis (AFS) has become increasingly defined. Historically mistaken for a paranasal sinus tumor, AFS now is believed to be an allergic reaction to aerosolized environmental fungi, usually of the dematiaceous species, in an immunocompetent host. This is in contrast to invasive fungal infections that affect immunocompromised hosts, such as patients with diabetes mellitus and patients with AIDS. Most patients with AFS have a history of allergic rhinitis, and the ...

The American Lyme Disease Foundation works closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, our National Board of scientific advisors, and physicians and researchers throughout the country to obtain and provide scientific, peer-reviewed information on Lyme disease and other tick-borne infections.
Antiphospholipid syndrome - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Antiphospholipid syndrome (or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome) (APS) is a disorder of coagulation, which causes blood clots (thrombosis) in both arteries and veins, as well as pregnancy-related complications such as miscarriage, preterm delivery, or severe preeclampsia.
Arthropod-borne viruses, i.e., arboviruses, are viruses that are maintained in nature through biological transmission between susceptible vertebrate hosts by blood feeding arthropods (mosquitoes, psychodids, ceratopogonids, and ticks). Vertebrate infection occurs when the infected arthropod takes a blood meal. The term 'arbovirus' has no taxonomic significance. Arboviruses that cause human encephalitis are members of three virus families: the Togaviridae (genus Alphavirus), Flaviviridae, and Bunyaviridae.

Atopic Dermatitis : Article by Caroline J Chen, MD
Atopic Dermatitis - Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronically relapsing skin disorder with an immunologic basis. The clinical presentation varies from mild to very severe and, in the worst cases, may interfere with normal growth and development. Treatment consists of adequate skin hydration, avoidance of allergenic precipitants, topical anti-inflammatory medications, systemic antihistamines, and antibiotic coverage of secondary infections.Although often used interchangeably, the terms eczema and atopic dermatitis are not equivalent. Eczema is a reaction pattern with various causes, ...
Autoimmune Chronic Active Hepatitis : Article by Husam H Sukerek, MD
Autoimmune Chronic Active Hepatitis - Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is a chronic necroinflammatory hepatitis of unknown etiology, characterized histologically by a dense mononuclear infiltrate in the portal tracts and serologically by autoantibodies against liver-specific and non–liver-specific antigens and increased immunoglobulin G (IgG) levels.To date, 2 types of AIH have been described based on differences in autoantibody patterns. AIH type 1 (AIH-1) is characterized by the presence of circulating anti–smooth muscle antibodies (ASMAs) and/or antinuclear antibodies (ANAs). AIH type 2 (AIH-2) is ...
Autoimmune Hepatitis : Article by Unnithan V Raghuraman, MD
Autoimmune Hepatitis - During the past 30 years, remarkable advances have occurred in the understanding of the epidemiology, natural history, and pathogenesis of chronic hepatitis. The development of viral serologic tests has permitted hepatologists to differentiate chronic viral hepatitis from other types of chronic liver disease, including autoimmune hepatitis. Autoimmune hepatitis is now accepted as a chronic disease of unknown cause, characterized by continuing hepatocellular inflammation and necrosis, which tends to progress to cirrhosis. Immune serum markers frequently are present, ...

Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome Database (ALPSbase):Database of mutation
Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome (ALPS) is a recently recognized disease in which a genetic defect in programmed cell death, or apoptosis, leads to breakdown of lymphocyte regulation. Patients with ALPS have chronic enlargement of the spleen and lymph nodes, various manifestations of autoimmunity, and elevation of a normally rare population of "double negative T cells" (DNTs), T lymphocytes expressing neither cluster differentiation CD4 nor CD8 surface antigens.

Botox Injections : Article by Robert A Hauser, MD
Botox Injections - Botulinum neurotoxin is produced by the gram-negative anaerobic bacterium Clostridium botulinum.Eight serologically distinct botulinum neurotoxins exist, designated as A, B, C1, C2, D, E, F, and G. Seven are associated with paralysis. Types A, B, E and, rarely, F and G are associated with human botulism.Botulism is a bilaterally symmetric descending neuroparalytic illness caused by botulinum neurotoxin. The German physician and poet Justinus Kerner published the first full description of clinical symptoms of food-borne botulism from 1817-1822. ...
Breast Implants, Silicone: Safety and Efficacy : Article by Garry S Brody, MD
Breast Implants, Silicone: Safety and Efficacy - The number of women in the United States who have breast implants is unknown, but current estimates derived from device sales range widely from 1.5 to more than 2 million. This is more than 1% of the adult female population. An estimated 70-80% of breast implant procedures were performed for cosmetic purposes and 20-30% for reconstruction of congenital anomalies or postmastectomy defects. Following the adverse publicity in the early 1990s, interest in ...
