  • Hydrocephalus

    Fetuses who develop progressive ventricular enlargement and cortical thinning from hydrocephalus before 28 weeks may have irreversible damage by 32 weeks.[chop.edu] A CT scan showed severe dilation of the brain’s lateral ventricles, while an MRI scan revealed massive enlargement of the lateral third and fourth venricles, a very thin cortical[sciencedaily.com] Prenatal factors such as progression, degree of cortical mantle thinning to less than 1.5 cm and in utero duration of greater than four weeks are associated with a poor prognosis[chop.edu]

  • Hypoglycemia

    Methadone is a synthetic μ-opioid receptor agonist that is used in the management of pain, neonatal abstinence withdrawal syndrome, and opioid dependence. Overdose can cause miosis, respiratory depression, and central nervous system depression. Rarely, hypoglycemia has been reported. We present the case of an[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyponatremia

    Symptomatic hyponatremia is considered a rare complication of oral bowel preparation for colonoscopy. The pathophysiology underlying this phenomenon has been widely regarded as a mere sequela of excessive arginine vasopressin (AVP) release. This case describes a 61-year old woman who developed acute hyponatremic[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Encephalitis

    Diagnosing encephalitis Diagnosing encephalitis can be difficult because the symptoms are similar to those of other conditions, such as meningitis. Tests are needed to differentiate encephalitis from other brain conditions so that treatment can be started as soon as possible. In the UK, encephalitis is a notifiable[…][web.archive.org]
