RESUMO

The incidence of breast cancer among Japanese women is substantially increasing. This study evaluated the effects of reproductive and lifestyle factors with respect to breast cancer overall and separately among pre- and postmenopausal women using data from the Three-Prefecture Cohort Study of Japan.A total of 33,410 women aged 40 to 79 years completed a self-administered questionnaire, which included items about menstrual and reproductive history and other lifestyle factors. The follow-up period was from 1984 to 1992 in Miyagi and 1985 to 2000 in Aichi Prefectures. We used Cox proportional hazards regression models to estimate hazards ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) after adjusting for confounding factors.After 9.8 mean years of follow-up, 287 cases of breast cancer were recorded. In the overall analysis, later menarche (≥16 years) and parity were significantly associated with a decreased risk of breast cancer, with HRs of 0.69 (95% CI 0.48-0.99) and 0.72 (95% CI 0.52-0.99), respectively. Further, there was a significant decline in the risk of breast cancer with increasing number of birth among parous women (P for trend = .010). On the contrary, a family history of breast cancer in the mother was significantly associated with an increased risk of breast cancer (HR 3.22, 95% CI 1.52-6.84). Analyses based on menopausal status at baseline indicated that height (≥160 cm) and weight (≥65 kg) were significantly associated with an increased risk of postmenopausal breast cancer, with HRs of 1.34 (95% CI 0.72-2.50) and 3.13 (95% CI 1.75-5.60), respectively. Risk associated with BMI significantly differs by menopausal status.Our findings suggest the important role of reproductive factors in the development of breast cancer in Japanese women; however, body mass index (BMI) may have different effects on breast cancer in Japanese women compared with western women.

RESUMO

Inherited platelet disorders (IPD) include a set of rare diseases whose diagnosis is often difficult because it requires the use of complex biological assays in specialized centers. They are probably under-diagnosed. Clinicians should consider an IPD when facing a chronic thrombocytopenia resistant to intravenous immunoglobulins (IVIG) and steroids together with a family history of thrombocytopenia. A syndromic thrombocytopenia will be suspected by the family survey and specific clinical signs. The confirmation of the diagnosis will then require the use of specialized biological assays such as platelet aggregation, flow cytometry, electron microscopy, platelet secretion assays, karyotype and molecular biology.

RESUMO

Drug re-exposure resulting in Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) or toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) is a rare phenomenon and has scarcely been reported. With an aging population, polypharmacy, and a lack of a unified electronic medical record, standard recommendations to prevent or minimize the risk of re-exposure are necessary. We identified five patients, with diagnosis confirmed SJS/TEN, and determined the clinical characteristics and contributing risk factors leading to re-exposure. Polypharmacy, multiple prescribers, advanced age, medical illiteracy, retention of discontinued medications and self-prescribing all contributed to re-exposure in this cohort of patients. This case series demonstrates the potentially deadly effect of drug re-exposure, and the need for both streamlined and integrated medication allergy documentation systems.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To assess whether severe psychiatric reactions to trauma and other adversities are associated with subsequent risk of life threatening infections. DESIGN: Population and sibling matched cohort study. SETTING: Swedish population. PARTICIPANTS: 144 919 individuals with stress related disorders (post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), acute stress reaction, adjustment disorder, and other stress reactions) identified from 1987 to 2013 compared with 184 612 full siblings of individuals with a diagnosed stress related disorder and 1 449 190 matched individuals without such a diagnosis from the general population. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: A first inpatient or outpatient visit with a primary diagnosis of severe infections with high mortality rates (ie, sepsis, endocarditis, and meningitis or other central nervous system infections) from the Swedish National Patient Register, and deaths from these infections or infections of any origin from the Cause of Death Register. After controlling for multiple confounders, Cox models were used to estimate hazard ratios of these life threatening infections. RESULTS: The average age at diagnosis of a stress related disorder was 37 years (55 541, 38.3% men). During a mean follow-up of eight years, the incidence of life threatening infections per 1000 person years was 2.9 in individuals with a stress related disorder, 1.7 in siblings without a diagnosis, and 1.3 in matched individuals without a diagnosis. Compared with full siblings without a diagnosis of a stress related disorder, individuals with such a diagnosis were at increased risk of life threatening infections (hazard ratio for any stress related disorder was 1.47 (95% confidence intervals1.37 to 1.58) and for PTSD was 1.92 (1.46 to 2.52)). Corresponding estimates in the population based analysis were similar (1.58 (1.51 to 1.65) for any stress related disorder, P=0.09 for difference between sibling and population based comparison, and 1.95 (1.66 to 2.28) for PTSD, P=0.92 for difference). Stress related disorders were associated with all studied life threatening infections, with the highest relative risk observed for meningitis (sibling based analysis 1.63 (1.23 to 2.16)) and endocarditis (1.57 (1.08 to 2.30)). Younger age at diagnosis of a stress related disorder and the presence of psychiatric comorbidity, especially substance use disorders, were associated with higher hazard ratios, whereas use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors in the first year after diagnosis of a stress related disorder was associated with attenuated hazard ratios. CONCLUSION: In the Swedish population, stress related disorders were associated with a subsequent risk of life threatening infections, after controlling for familial background and physical or psychiatric comorbidities.

RESUMO

The collection of family history has always been a tool for genetic evaluation, but it remains an essential tool even in the age of genomic medicine. Patients may have a risk for a disease based on family history regardless of the results of genetic and genomic tests. How this information is collected is less important than that relevant information is collected in the first place. There are many tools for collecting medical and family history information both by hand and electronically. Genetic and genomic testing should always be interpreted in the context of the personal and family history.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: This case report presents one of the first documented incidents of chronic Q-fever (C. burnetii) in Norway. A comprehensive workup resulted in an unexpected finding. CASE PRESENTATION: A Norwegian woman in her eighties presented to a district general hospital with lower back pain, decreased general condition and weight loss. Computer tomography (CT) revealed a large thoracic aortic aneurysm presumed to be of mycotic origin, and later magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans revealed osteomyelitis in the surrounding vertebrae. Conventional diagnostic workup did not identify the causative agent. After more than 6 months of different examinations, surgery, exhausting invasive procedures and antimicrobial treatment, we were ultimately successful in determining the microbial cause of chronic mycotic aneurism and osteomyelitis to be C. Burnetii (Q-fever) through serological and PCR analysis. INTERPRETATION: An increasing proportion of the population in all age groups travel abroad, and clinicians should be aware of the increasing incidence of imported infectious diseases. Obtaining a thorough medical history is still an important tool in the diagnostic process.

RESUMO

A farm worker in Baodi District of Tianjin was diagnosed with Tsutsugamushi disease due to fever and intermittent cough for more than 3 months.The patient's diagnosis and treatment process was complicated, and the diagnosis was delayed in the early stage of the disease because the clinician neglected the occupational history and lacked knowledge about the prevention and control of tsutsugamushi disease. As an important part of the epidemiological history, occupational history is crucial for the diagnosis of occupational related diseases. Clinical thinking runs through the whole process of clinical diagnosis and disease treatment, and correct clinical thinking can effectively reduce the occurrence of misdiagnosis.Clinicians should ask and record career history in detail to improve the quality of health care.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Accurately measuring stigmatized experiences is a challenge across reproductive health research. In this study, we tested a novel method - the list experiment - that aims to reduce underreporting of sensitive events by asking participants to report how many of a list of experiences they have had, not which ones. We applied the list experiment to measure "self-managed abortion" - any attempt by a person to end a pregnancy on one's own, outside of a clinical setting - a phenomenon that may be underreported in surveys due to a desire to avoid judgement. METHODS: We administered a double list experiment on self-managed abortion to a Texas-wide representative sample of 790 women of reproductive age in 2015. Participants were asked how many of a list of health experiences they had experienced; self-managed abortion was randomly added as an item to half of the lists. A difference in the average number of items reported by participants between lists with and without self-managed abortion provided a population level estimate of self-managed abortion. In 2017, we conducted cognitive interviews with women of reproductive age in four states to understand how women (1) interpreted the list experiment question format, and (2) interpreted the list item on prior experiences attempting to self-manage an abortion. RESULTS: Results from this list experiment estimated that 8% of women of reproductive age in Texas have ever self-managed an abortion. This number was higher than expected, thus, the researchers conducted cognitive interviews to better understand how people interpreted the list experiment on self-managed abortion. Some women interpreted "on your own" to mean "without the knowledge of friends or family", as opposed to "without medical assistance", as intended. CONCLUSION: The list experiment may have reduced under-reporting of self-managed abortion; however, the specific phrasing of the list item may also have unintentionally increased reporting of abortion experiences not considered "self-managed." High participation in and comprehension of the list experiment, however, suggests that this method is worthy of further exploration as tool for measuring stigmatized experiences.

RESUMO

Family health history (FHH) is the most useful means of assessing risk for common chronic diseases. The odds ratio for risk of developing disease with a positive FHH is frequently greater than 2, and actions can be taken to mitigate risk by adhering to screening guidelines, genetic counselling, genetic risk testing, and other screening methods. Challenges to the routine acquisition of FHH include constraints on provider time to collect data and the difficulty in accessing risk calculators. Disease-specific and broader risk assessment software platforms have been developed, many with clinical decision support and informatics interoperability, but few access patient information directly. Software that allows integration of FHH with the electronic medical record and clinical decision support capabilities has provided solutions to many of these challenges. Patient facing, electronic medical record, and web-enabled FHH platforms have been developed, and can provide greater identification of risk compared with conventional FHH ascertainment in primary care. FHH, along with cascade screening, can be an important component of population health management approaches to overall reduction of risk.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: Although some specific genetic syndromes such as neurofibromatosis (NF) have been identified as risk factor of childhood brain tumors (CBT), the potential role of inherited susceptibility in CBT has yet to be elucidated. METHODS: To further investigate this, we conducted a pooled analysis of two nationwide case-control studies ESCALE and ESTELLE. The mothers of 509 CBT cases and 3,102 controls aged under 15 years who resided in France at diagnosis/interview, frequency-matched by age and gender, responded to a telephone interview conducted by trained interviewers. Pooled odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) were estimated using unconditional logistic regression. RESULTS: CBT was significantly associated with the family history of cancer in relatives (OR 1.2, 95% CI 1.0-1.5). The OR was slightly higher for maternal relatives than for paternal relatives, and when at least two relatives had a history of cancer. CBT was significantly associated with a family history of brain tumor (OR 2.1, 95% CI 1.3-3.7). This association seemed stronger for first-degree relatives (mother, father, and siblings), for whom, by contrast, no association was seen for cancers other than CBT. No specificity by CBT subtypes or by age of the children were found for any of these findings. CONCLUSION: Our findings support the hypothesis of a familial susceptibility of CBT, not due to being a known NF carrier.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Cervical cancer remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality among women, particularly in low-resource countries like Ethiopia. Early screening for pre-cervical cancer is a key intervention in reduction of maternal deaths. We assessed uptake of pre-cervical cancer screening and its associated factors among women of reproductive age in Debre Markos town in northwest Ethiopia. METHODS: A community-based, cross-sectional study was conducted among 517 women of reproductive age. A multistage sampling technique was used to select study participants. Kebeles (sub-districts) were selected by a simple random sampling technique.Data was entered using Epi Info and analyzed by SPSS. Variables in binary logistic regression with a P value < 0.2 were fitted to multivariable logistic regression. Significant variables were declared at 95% CI and an AOR of P value < 0.05. RESULTS: A total of 517 women were interviewed with100% response rate. Results revealed only 108 women (20.9%) [95% CI =17.6-24.6] had been screened for pre-cervical cancer. Participants ages 35-49 [AOR = 3.21, 95% CI: 1.40, 7.39] informed by health professionals about cervical cancer [AOR = 6.65, 95% CI: 3.64, 12.15], positive attitude to screening [AOR = 3.38, 95% CI: 1.92, 7.61], visited health institution once or more in a year [AOR = 6.72, 95% CI: 2.40, 18.79], visited health institution once or more in two years [AOR = 3.76, 95% CI = 1.39, 10.19], history of sexually transmitted infections [AOR = 2.37, 95% CI: 1.11, 5.07] and family history of cervical cancer [AOR = 4.95, 95%CI: 1.62,15.15] were significantly associated with pre-cervical cancer screening. CONCLUSION: Uptake of pre-cervical cancer screening was found to be low among women of reproductive age. Age, attitude, informed by health provider, visiting health institution, history of sexually transmitted infections and family history of cervical cancer were found to be significantly associated with higher uptake of screening. To scale up currently limited uptake of pre-cervical cancer screening, community health education should be undertaken, leading to attitude change for young women.

RESUMO

Most of the common dizziness/vertigo diseases in otology clinic are peripheral vertigo diseases, and while about 20% -30% of all vertigo diseases are caused by central nervous system diseases. Pseudo vestibular neuritis, acute ischemic stroke with audiovestibular loss, and central paroxysmal positional vertigo are the three types of central "malignant vertigo" diseases which are most easily misdiagnosed by otologists. This article described the clinical characteristics and bedside physical performance of these three diseases, and summarized the differential diagnosis points for clinical reference.

RESUMO

Malaria is a potentially severe infection and time to treatment can be decisive for the outcome. Febrile patients returning from travel in endemic areas should therefore be promptly investigated for malaria. This review focuses on the acute management of malaria in Sweden. The disease is diagnosed in travellers, migrants and temporary visitors from malaria-endemic countries. Malaria is a relatively rare infection in Sweden, with approximately 150 imported cases per year in a population of 10 million. Health care delay is a risk of more severe disease. Children, pregnant women, elderly, and individuals from endemic areas who lived in Sweden for a long time as well as those with comorbidities are at increased risk of severe malaria. Microscopy is used for diagnosis and determination parasite density; rapid diagnostic tests are supportive diagnostic tools. First-line treatment for severe malaria is intravenous artesunate and for uncomplicated P. falciparum malaria artemether-lumefantrine (AL) or chloroquine in cases with non-P. falciparum infections from areas without known resistance. Treatment failures have been observed in non-immune travelers treated with AL, and patients should be recommended to seek care in the event of new fever. Being a relative rare disease in Sweden, management of malaria is performed at specialized centers with infectious disease specialists.

RESUMO

Although cardiogenic shock is uncommon in the emergency department, it is associated with high mortality. Most cardiogenic shock is caused by ischemia, but nonischemic etiologies are essential to recognize. Clinicians should optimize preload, contractility, and afterload. Volume-responsive patients should be resuscitated in small aliquots, although some patients may require diuresis to improve cardiac output. Vasopressors are important to restore end-organ perfusion, and inotropes improve contractility. Intubation and positive pressure ventilation impact hemodynamics, which, depending on volume status, may be beneficial or deleterious. Knowing indications for mechanical circulatory support is important for timely consultation or transfer as indicated.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Hypertrophy of the adenoids is common in children. However, the anatomical site makes the adenoids difficult to assess, and studies evaluating the subject are ambiguous, especially with regard to the use of X-ray as an evaluation tool. OBJECTIVES: To compare medical history with clinical, radiological, and endoscopic evaluations of the adenoids and compare obstructed and non-obstructed children relative to the assessment methods. METHODS: A prospective comparative study was conducted with children who were suspected of having enlarged adenoids. All parents completed a medical history questionnaire and patients underwent clinical evaluation based on Nasal Obstruction Index (NOI) scores, radiological assessment based on the lateral neck X-ray adenoid-nasopharynx (A/N( ratio, and endoscopic evaluation based on anatomical relations. Spearman correlations were used for comparison between methods. RESULTS: We evaluated 36 patients, median age 5.33 years. Correlation measurements for clinical assessment and questionnaire (r = 0.582, P < 0.0001), questionnaire and endoscopy (r = 0.462, P = 0.005), and clinical assessment and nasal endoscopy (r = 0.621, P < 0.0001) were statistically significant. None of the parameters correlated with the radiological findings. A statistically significant difference was found between the obstructed and non-obstructed groups in both questionnaire (P = 0.004) and clinical assessment (P < 0.0001). However, no difference was found in X-ray measurements. CONCLUSIONS: Lateral neck X-ray measurements were not correlated to symptoms, signs, or endoscopic findings. Therefore, medical professionals should use lateral neck radiography when considering adenoidectomy only on a highly selective basis.
