Pages:

Prevalence and Predictors of Vitamin D Insufficiency in Adolescents Living at an Intermediate Altitude

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.060
Synopsis: 
Vitamin D insufficiency in adolescents living at an intermediate altitude; and optimal serum 25(OH) vitamin D levels in relation to serum PTH levels was evaluated. In spring, vitamin D deficiency was detected in 17.7 % and vitamin D insufficiency was detected in 72 % of subjects. At the end of summer these rates were 1.6 % and 41.1 % respectively. Serum 25(OH)vitamin D levels at which plasma PTH concentrations begin to form a plateau is 22 ng/mL.

ABSTRACT

Although vitamin D insufficiency is very common health problem in the world, its prevalence and predictors in adolescents are controversial. We planned to evaluate prevalenve and predictors of vitamin D insufficiency in adolescents living at an intermediate altitude. We also want to give optimal serum 25(OH) vitamin D levels in relation to serum PTH levels.

Adverse Reaction of Topical Etofenamate: Petechial Eruption

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.029
Pages: 
767–9

Etofenamate is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Clinical findings caused by etofenamate
are uncommon. Allergic contact dermatitis is the most common cutaneous reaction reported. But
petechial eruption due to etofenamate had not been reported yet. This report concerns an 11-year old
male with petechial eruption after application of topical etofenamate.
Physicians need to be aware that patients can develop an asymptomatic purpuric eruption when
etofenamate is ordered.
