Miner


Presentation

  • Most patients suffering from this disease present with nonspecific symptoms similar to those of chronic tonsillitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Respiratory failure worsened and the patient died 19 days after presenting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The present case involves the clinical assessments of an individual who worked at the mine from 1969 to 1990. He had no other known occupational exposures to fibrous materials.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A 61-year-old man, who had been a coal miner for 36 years, presented with a well differentiated hepatocarcinoma without cirrhosis. The patient had a haemochromatosis with no family history of liver disease and a normal genetic study.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • While DIST may be present to variable extents in a number of lung conditions, it is uncommon as a predominant finding except in a few entities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Asymptomatic
  • After 12 months of follow-up, the miner was asymptomatic with no recurrence. Tonsillectomy is a curative method to address lymphangiomatous polyps (LAPs) of the tonsils which resulted in no recurrence during the clinical follow-up period.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pseudotumor
  • Inflammatory pseudotumors can also occur in other organs, but the lung is most commonly involved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Chronic Infection
  • However, the parasite is difficult to detect because eosinophilia can appear normal in chronic infection. Several stool examinations, duodenal aspiration or biopsies are necessary for a high diagnostic sensitivity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Aspiration
  • Several stool examinations, duodenal aspiration or biopsies are necessary for a high diagnostic sensitivity. Serological diagnosis is the most sensitive and specific but is not always available.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Sore Throat
  • We report a case of a 21-year-old male miner who presented with a chronic history of a foreign body sensation in the oropharynx and an intermittently sore throat. The patient was preoperatively diagnosed with the palatine tonsils neoplasm.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Abdominal Pain
  • A miner, known to have had lung silicosis for 30 years, was investigated for abdominal pain. A retroperitoneal mass was found, in which histological examination showed an inflammatory reaction to silica.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Foreign Body Sensation
  • We report a case of a 21-year-old male miner who presented with a chronic history of a foreign body sensation in the oropharynx and an intermittently sore throat. The patient was preoperatively diagnosed with the palatine tonsils neoplasm.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

Plasmodium Falciparum
  • Using GMine we reanalyzed proteome microarray data of host antibody response against Plasmodium falciparum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Polyps
  • Tonsillectomy is a curative method to address lymphangiomatous polyps (LAPs) of the tonsils which resulted in no recurrence during the clinical follow-up period.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • During evaluation of the patient, specific occupational factors and habituations will be related with higher succession rates of treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In parallel, a drug mechanism of action network is constructed by integrating drug targets and z-score profiles of drug-induced gene expression (pre vs. post-drug treatment).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • He survived after early amputation of a crushed leg, peritoneal haemodialysis and other treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Together, these data sources and analytic technologies seek to answer what treatments work for whom, why, in what context, and at what cost.[www2.deloitte.com]
  • […] engineers conceive, design, build, supervise, operate, construct, and maintain infrastructure projects and systems in the public and private sector, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and systems for water supply and sewage treatment[bls.gov]

Etiology

  • The etiology of this rare disorder and potential pathogenesis should be studied in the future, which would help prevent its occurrence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Inflammatory pseudotumors of the lung are uncommon and etiologically diverse lesions that often present as solitary masses in the lung. It may be difficult to distinguish these lesions from more commonly encountered lung neoplasms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Intractable pleural pain has been described in asbestos-exposed patients with theorized etiologies. However, no in vivo reported mechanism has demonstrated a plausible, anatomically apparent mechanism for the pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • Abstract Epidemiological miner cohort data used to estimate lung cancer risks related to occupational radon exposure often lack cohort-wide information on exposure to tobacco smoke, a potential confounder and important effect modifier.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract Epidemiological evidence of lung cancer risk from radon is based mainly on studies of miners. Two such studies among Czech uranium miners were established in 1970 and 1980.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The aim was to derive radon-induced lung cancer risk estimates applicable to different populations using a model description consistent with both cellular dose-response relationships, and previous model analyses of animal and human epidemiological data[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSIONS: We recommend further research on re-evaluating the health effects of exposure to radon that accounts for new information on diesel exhaust carcinogenicity in BEIR VI models, up-to-date vital statistics and new epidemiological evidence from[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • […] to understand the interaction of silicosis and tuberculosis in this setting, the importance of maintaining continuity of care in the management of these conditions in miners and former miners, and control of silica dust exposure as a primary form of prevention[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The etiology of this rare disorder and potential pathogenesis should be studied in the future, which would help prevent its occurrence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The Miner staff is trained in Crisis Prevention Intervention (CPI) with three staff members as certified trainers.[nsseo.org]
  • He meticulously organised and carried out with determination the main mission entrusted him which was to prevent the hookworm epidemic which a mere twenty years earlier had cast its shadow over the St. Gotthard tunnel.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • When passing or re-passing, holders must: take all necessary steps to prevent fire, damage to trees or other property; and damage to any property or livestock by the presence of dogs, the discharge of firearms, the use of vehicles or otherwise cause as[dmp.wa.gov.au]
