Human T-cell Leukaemia/Lymphoma Virus Type-1 Associated Myeloneuropathies – A Caribbean Perspective

Issue: 
Pages: 
408–14
Synopsis: 
This review follows the contributions of researchers from the Caribbean in improving the understanding of the disease mechanisms, clinical features and aetiology of neurological syndromes manifesting as diseases of the spinal cord and peripheral nerves. The link between the natural history of human T-cell leukaemia/lymphoma virus type-1 (HTLV-1) infection and the immunopathogenesis of tropical spastic paraparesis is explored.

Quality of Life in End Stage Renal Disease: A Multicentre Comparative Study

Issue: 
Pages: 
235–242
Synopsis: 
Overall quality of life in patients with end stage renal disease is good. Domain of highest concern were burden of kidney disease and patient satisfaction.

ABSTRACT

Background: Quality of Life (QOL) in patients with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) is an important measure of dialysis adequacy. Health related QOL is an independent risk factor for mortality in ESRD. The Kidney Disease QOL questionnaire is a highly validated disease targeted instrument with global application. We sought to document QOL and the predictive factors in a cohort of patients with ESRD in Jamaica and Panama.

ABSTRACT

We present a case of a 50-year old man who developed mutism and a flaccid quadriparesis within 48 hours of presentation to hospital with severe hyponatraemia. A diagnosis of central pontine myelinolysis was made based on the clinical features and typical appearances on magnetic resonance imaging.
