  • Alcohol Withdrawal

    Alcohol withdrawal continues to present significant morbidity and mortality in hospitalized medical/surgical patients. The authors present a case of a patient with delirium tremens requiring up to 1,600 mg/day of lorazepam and discuss alternative treatments for alcohol withdrawal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Syncope

    jerking is common in syncope.[emed.ie] However, a syncopal episode associated with normal sinus rhythm may be due to several disorders such as orthostatic hypotension, vasovagal or carotid sinus reflexes, or even[omicsonline.org] ., giddiness, lightheadedness, tunnel vision, nausea, spots in the vision).[bcmj.org]

  • Hypokalemia

    A 32-year-old woman with anorexia nervosa showing tall P waves on electrocardiogram (ECG) was reported. Her ECG showed tall P waves (5.5mm in voltage, lead II) at 2.2mEq/L of serum potassium. After the treatment, P waves decreased in voltage with the normalization of serum potassium. Tall P waves may be[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Insulinoma

    Ectopic insulinoma is a very rare and dormant tumor. Here we report the case of a 79-year-old female who presented with repeated episodes of hypoglycemia and was diagnosed with insulinoma based on laboratory and imaging examinations. Computed tomography and positron emission tomography revealed a tumor in the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cocaine Abuse

    Effects of cocaine abuse on the oral mucosa are still poorly defined. Herein, a case of an 18-year-old male patient with a 15-day history of persistent painful ulcers and aphthous lesions of unknown etiology and with no other remarkable manifestations, is presented. All of the laboratory tests performed showed to[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Epilepsia Partialis Continua

    We used electroencephalographic (EEG) dipole analysis to investigate the generators of spikes with and without myoclonic jerks in a 12-year-old patient with epilepsia partialis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Myoclonic jerks progressed to epilepsia partialis continua within 5 days of admission to the hospital.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] EEG revealed both correlation and absence of correlation between spikes or sharp waves and myoclonic jerks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Datura Stramonium Poisoning

    Abstract A case of acute poisoning by ingestion of Datura stramonium infusion is reported. The patient presented with a typical anticholinergic syndrome (dryness of mouth, mydriasis, flushing, tachycardia, agitation, hallucinations) and was treated with symptomatic and supportive measures. The presence of tropane[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
