Optic nerve ultrasound for fluid status assessment in patients with severe preeclampsia

diabetes mellitus. None had prior ocular surgery or ocular trauma. Median maternal age was 31 years (range 21–44 years); median maternal pre-pregnancy body mass index was 23 kg/m 2 (range 19–32 kg/m 2 ), and median gestational age at study inclusion was 32 5/7 weeks (range 22 3/7–39 4/7 weeks). Twenty-three (77%) patients were nulliparous. Severe features of preeclampsia meeting the inclusion criteria were: hypertension in all 30 cases, headache in 14 (47%) cases, visual disturbances in four (13%) cases, elevated liver enzymes in 10 (33%) cases, thrombocytopenia in

Cerebral toxoplasmosis in a diffuse large B cell lymphoma patient

systemic diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) presented to our oncology clinic in the beginning of September 2013 with high fever, headache and altered mental status. Her past medical history included arterial hypertension and type 2 diabetes mellitus, both well controlled with medications. Since 2010, she was treated for marginal zone B cell lymphoma stage IV A, involving the spleen, bone marrow and lymph nodes. A splenectomy was performed in July 2011. At that time, no other treatment was administered due to clinical remission. In August 2012, the disease progressed

Voluntary deep inspiration breath-hold reduces the heart dose without compromising the target volume coverage during radiotherapy for left-sided breast cancer

. Patients with cardiac V25Gy ≥ 5% on FB treatment plan were offered V-DIBH. In addition, selected cases with lower V25Gy were entered on the V-DIBH protocol. This selection was performed at discretion of the treating radiation oncologist by considering patient-related factors such as age, pre-existent ischemic cardiac events and other co-morbidities, application of cardio-toxic medications, history of smoking, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia and arterial hypertension. Our V-DIBH approach was adapted from the technique used in the UK HeartSpare study and was based on
