    In the case of Zika, because infection in a pregnant woman is linked to serious birth defects and miscarriage, CDC recommends that pregnant women not travel to areas with[wwwnc.cdc.gov] The CDC also says that cases of Zika — a mosquito-borne disease that can cause serious birth defects — have been reported in nearby Puerto Rico .[goodhousekeeping.com] In women of child-bearing age, SIT should be started before conception to protect the unborn child from the potential consequences of anaphylaxis (miscarriage, birth defects[doi.org]

  • Urinary Tract Infection

    METHODS: Infants hospitalized for febrile UTI were divided into two groups according to the presence of cortical defects on dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) scintigraphy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] detailed analysis of predisposing factors should be performed and appropriate diagnostic studies ordered, including the possible presence of other - less common - factors, e.g. defects[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] For further examinations, 99mTc-dimercaptosuccinic acid renal scintigraphy showed right cortical defects, and a voiding cystourethrogram demonstrated right vesicoureteral[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Patulous Eustachian Tube

    CONCLUSION: Patulous ET seems to be caused by a concave defect in the tubal valve's anterolateral wall.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Done with either a rigid or a flexible endoscope, it may show a concave defect in the anterolateral part of the valve, instead of the normal convexity. 19 The defect prevents[clinicalgate.com] The procedure consists of using conchal or septal cartilage to close the defect in the anterolateral wall of the eustachian tube.[symptoma.com]
