Initial Mental Health Evaluation of Internationally Adopted Youth: Goals and Timing Considerations

Rowena Ng, Jennifer Tang and Maria Kroupina

Article Type: Short Communication | First Published: May 16, 2016

Internationally adopted (IA) children are at a greater risk for emotional, behavioral and adaptation difficulties, relative to typically-developing youth due to the fact that many of them experience severe social-emotional deprivation and other adverse experiences preadoption. Importantly, a disproportionate number of IA children show insecure attachment with caregivers even post-adoption, which has been associated with later problems with affect and behavioral regulation.

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: May 02, 2016

Tuberculosis (TB) has been a major health problem for thousands of years. It took almost 200 years after the discovery of the disease in early 1689 to identify the causative pathogen, namely Mycobacterium tuberculosis by Robert Koch who was awarded a Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine in 1905 for his work in this area.

A Pragmatic Approach to Hormonal Testing in the Assessment of Disorders of Female Reproduction

Robert L Reid and Bryden A Magee

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: June 04, 2016

When approaching a female patient with concerns about her reproductive health, it is important to first consider how a given hormonal test will guide diagnosis, impact treatment or define prognosis. Sometimes, the interpretation of hormone levels can cloud the clinical diagnosis. Careful consideration of the value and limitations of each test helps to streamline the path to diagnosis and the cost to the healthcare system. We review the utility of various hormone tests in the context of two cases...
