Presentation

  • A rationalisation of the 1350 boxes used throughout the book gives a simpler and clearer presentation of the various categories.[books.google.com]
  • Leading experts from Latin America, Africa, Near and Middle East, Indian Subcontinent, Far East, Oceania and Australia present their expert insights into specific conditions, as well as progress and challenges in the development of the specialty.[books.google.com]
  • The condition may present with cardiovascular problems such as myocardial or cerebral ischaemia. For this reason, it may be justifiable to venesect the patient. Smoking should be stopped. gaisbock's syndrome in English gaisbock's syndrome in Arabic[babylon-software.com]
  • Achieving an integrated approach would be made immeasurably easier by a book presenting the subject in a fully integrated, clinical way. This then has been the motivation for this book.[books.google.com]
Ankle Edema
  • On examination, bilateral, large, yellow subretinal infiltrates were noted (Figure, left) with overlying, bullous retinal detachments, a small subconjunctival hemorrhage, and ankle edema. The patient had no history of hemato-logic problems.[docslide.com.br]
Cotton Wool Spots
  • In the right eye an inferonasal peripapillary hyperfluorescence was related to a small cotton-wool spot. Results of physical examination were unremarkable and blood pressure was normal. The patient was a 50 pack-year cigarette smoker.[docslide.com.br]

Workup

  • A workup revealed no evidence of polycythemia rubra vera or a secondary cause of her polycythemia (her erythropoietin level was normal, she had no splenomegaly, and a test for JAK2 v617F mutation was negative).[clinmedjournals.org]
  • See Presentation and Workup . To the extent that the increased RBCs alleviate tissue hypoxia, secondary polycythemia may in fact be beneficial.[emedicine.medscape.com]
