ABSTRACT

Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) of urinary bladder is a very rare condition in which a section of blood vessels lack a capillary vessels resulting in blood from an artery being delivered directly to a vein. We report a rare case of arteriovenous malformation of the bladder wall mimicking a bladder tumor presenting with acute abdomen.

Age and Gender Differences of Orthostatic Hypertension in Children

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.316
Pages: 
583–87
Synopsis: 
We report the results of a retrospective cross-sectional study of 2089 children referred for syncope of unknown origin and pre-syncope symptoms. We noted that orthostatic hypertension existed in 23.84% out of these 2089 children. Orthostatic hypertension frequency was higher in males and those ≥ 12 years of age. In orthostatic hypertensive children, head-up tilt test positive rate was higher in females and those ≥ 12 years of age. Since orthostatic hypertension, as an orthostatic blood pressure regulation disorder, is not as well studied as orthostatic hypotension, we believe that our findings could be of interest to the readers of your journal.

ABSTRACT

Background: Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is a common orthostatic blood pressure (BP) regulation disorder. Orthostatic hypertension (OHT), on the other hand, is not so common but has relevancy with autonomic neuropathy and diabetes. Orthostatic hypotension is prevalent in females and elderly person. But prevalence of OHT in age and gender is poorly studied.

Pages: 
281–6
Synopsis: 
Familial Mediterranean fever is a frequently seen chronic inflammatory disease that can lead to severe morbidity and mortality if left untreated. Severity and frequency of attacks are correlated with mutations. However, environmental factors play an important role as the clinical course can differ even in people with mutations.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Clinical and genetic findings of familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) may vary in different populations. Environmental factors may also affect phenotypic features of FMF. In this study, we investigated demographic, clinical and mutational features of FMF patients treated in a single reference hospital in Turkey.
