SMYD2 in Leukemia: An Update

Teresa Rubio-Tomás

Article Type: Mini-Review Article | First Published: August 30, 2021

SMYD2 is one of the five members (SMYD1-5) of the Su(Var)3-9, Enhancer-of-zeste and Trithorax (SET) and Myeloid, Nervy, and DEAF-1 (MYND) domain-containing (SMYD) protein family and is it known to methylate histone and non-histone substrates. By methylating a wide range of targets, SMYD2 acts as an oncogene in most cancer types. In this review I will comment on the last publications related to the role of SMYD2 in leukemia and I will refer to more extensive reviews if the reader aims to have a b...

Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism in a Female Patient with Thalassemia Major

Richmond R Gomes

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: August 28, 2021

Thalassemia refers to a group of inherited diseases characterized by decreased or absent synthesis of normal globin chains. The direct consequence is an imbalance of the alpha and beta globin chain synthesis that results in anemia from ineffective erythropoiesis and hemolysis. The term thalassemia major refers to the severe form that is often associated with life-long transfusion dependent anemia. Hypogonadism is the most frequently reported endocrine complication, affecting 70-80% of thalassemi...

Li Weiling Lydia, MBBS, MMed, Lim Yiqi Ofelia, MBBS, Chan Lijuan Jasmine, BMed/MD and Alex Joseph, MBBS, MD, FRCA

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 05, 2021

Spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH) is uncommon and postulated to occur due to spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak. Subdural hemorrhage is a rare but serious complication of intracranial hypotension. With a paucity of high-level evidence to guide treatment, its management remains challenging. We report a case of spontaneous intracranial hypotension which was successfully treated with an epidural blood patch. The patient is a 59-year-old man with poorly controlled diabetes and hyper...

Quality of Care and Cost Effectiveness: Optimization of Wound Care in the Netherlands

Wouter Brekelmans, MD, Boudewijn LS Borger van der Burg, MD and Rigo Hoencamp, MD, PhD

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: August 30, 2021

Recently Brekelmans, et al. analyzed a new “fast-track “protocol, the intervention “fast track protocol” was implemented to shorten the time to referral of patients when the need for diagnostic test was deemed necessary because of the suspicion of underlying pathology preventing wound healing. This sub-analysis of a cross-sectional study presents the cost reduction, using that “fast track protocol”. Our conservative estimate is that between approximately €135.000.000 and €293.000...

Danielle Tran, BS, Christopher Tang, BS, Sanam Tabatabai, BS, Devon Pleasants, BS, Christopher Choukalas, MD, MS, Jie Min, MS, Quyen Do, MS, Laura Sands, PhD, Kathryn Lee, RN, PhD and Jacqueline M Leung, MD, MPH

Article Type: Original Investigation | First Published: August 16, 2021

Sleep disruption is prevalent in older patients. No previous studies have considered the impact of surgery duration or surgery end time of day on postoperative sleep disruption. Accordingly, we examined the duration of surgery and surgery end times for associations with postoperative sleep disruption. Inclusion criteria were patients ≥ 65 years of age undergoing major, non-cardiac surgery. Sleep disruption was measured by wrist actigraphy and defined as wake after sleep onset (WASO) during the...

Article Type: Brief Report | First Published: April 26, 2021

Comorbidities are common in psoriatic arthritis patients, including mood disorders. We aimed to study the prevalence of anxiety and depression in psoriatic arthritis patients from Brazil and its association with epidemiological, clinical and treatment data. Fifty-four psoriatic arthritis patients were interviewed using Becks’ anxiety inventory, CES-D (Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale) and the SF-12 (Short Form Health Survey). Simultaneously the disease activity was measured us...

The authors report the case of a 14-year-old girl with Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome in its classical form, with the triad of recurrent peripheral facial paralysis, upper lip edema and fissured tongue. A rare disease of unknown etiology, it has a chronic and progressive course, and clinical diagnosis is usually by exclusion. An individualized, multidisciplinary approach is fundamental for the treatment of the symptoms and avoids complications and permanent sequelae. The therapeutic options are v...

Sinonasal Schwannomas

Ana Carolina Riveros, Valentina Proietti, Candelaria Serrano and Carlos Santiago Ruggeri

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: August 25, 2021

Schwannomas of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses are uncommon. Treatment is surgical and endoscopic excision is a main indication. Our aim was to determine the incidence of rhinosinusal Schwannomas and the effectiveness of endonasal surgery with endoscopes to treat these tumors. The electronic medical records of all patients diagnosed with head and neck schwannomas were reviewed, excluding acoustic nerve neurilemomas and neurofibromas. Those who presented tumors located in the nose or paran...
