Myiasis varies widely in the forms it takes and its effects on the victims. Such variations depend largely on the fly species and where the larvae are located.

Risk factors for myiasis in humans are chronic suppurative otitis media, low socioeconomic status, swimming in stagnant water, and diabetes mellitus. Other possible predisposing factors include neglected children, old age, mental retardation, and poor personal hygiene.

Justice for family of "racist" syphilis study

For 40 years starting in 1932, medical workers in the segregated South withheld treatment for unsuspecting men infected with a sexually transmitted disease simply so doctors could track the ravages of the horrid illness and dissect their bodies afterward.
.

The men were persuaded to participate by promises of:
free transportation to and from hospitals,
free hot lunches,
free medical treatment for ailments other than syphilis and
a free burial
.

Video: Syphilis


Syphilis is a chronic bacterial disease that can be contracted by other means but is typically a sexually-transmitted disease.
In very rare cases, it can be spread through prolonged kissing, as well as the more common routes of transmission: vaginal, anal and oral sex. It comes from the bacteria Treponema pallidum.
.
The infection develops in stages:
.
STAGE ONE
Small, painless sores (like ulcers) on genitals or in the mouth
Appear within 10-90 days after exposure
They disappear within six weeks, and do not leave a scar, before developing to stage two
.
STAGE TWO
Rosy rash on the palms of the hand and soles of the feet
Moist warts in the groin White patches inside the mouth
Swollen glands
Fever
Weight loss
This all fades away without treatment before developing into stage three

Acne conglobata

Acne conglobata (AC) is an uncommon and unusually severe form of acne characterized by burrowing and interconnecting abscesses and irregular scars (both keloidal and atrophic), often producing pronounced disfigurement. The comedones often occur in a group of 2 or 3, and cysts contain foul-smelling seropurulent material that returns after drainage.

The therapy of choice for acne conglobata (AC) includes isotretinoin 0.5-1 mg/kg for 4-6 months.
Alternatives include oral tetracycline, minocycline, or doxycycline.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is a chronic mental illness characterized by by periods of deep, prolonged, and profound depression that alternate with periods of an excessively elevated or irritable mood known as mania.
.
There are two types: Bipolar I and Bipolar II.
.
A person affected by bipolar I disorder has had at least one manic episode in his or her life. Often, there is a pattern of cycling between mania and depression. This is where the term "manic depression" comes from.
.
Patients with bipolar II disorder present with one or more episodes of major depression with at least one hypomanic episode.
.
Diagnostically, mania must be at least seven days whereas hypomania has to be at least 4 days. Also, if “the episode is not severe enough to cause marked impairment in functioning, or to necessitate hospitalization, and there are no psychotic features, it is termed hypomania.
.
However, it is important to note that once a patient exhibits "complete" mania, they have BPD I.
.
Mood stabilisers (Lithium), Anticonvulsants (valproate, carbamazepine, lamotrigine) and antipsychotics such as risperidone, quetiapine are  used in treatment of BPD. Most patients continue this treatment for life to avoid a relapse.
.
N.B: SSRIs, SNRIs are not usually used even when the patient is in a depressed state because it could tilt the patient to mania.

SHOCKING!!! DOCTOR REMOVED AN OVARY INSTEAD OF APPENDIX DURING SURGERY

Dr Lawal Haruna, 59, was branded a danger to all patients after he took out the woman’s reproductive organs when she was admitted with abdominal pain while working at NHS hospitals in Sheffield, Souths Yorks.
.
The unnamed patient known as Patient B and who was described as being of “non-child bearing age” also had her fallopian tube removed during the bungled op; her appendix was left untouched.
.
The incident in March 2015 occurred during a series of bungled operations carried out by Haruna which were so poorly executed, colleagues described them as “never events”.
.

Lucinda Allen, 38, from Stourbridge in the West Midlands was 6 months pregnant when she had intercourse with her husband Tony. After climaxing twice, she experienced a sharp pain just above her right eye.

She said, 'My pregnancy had been overshadowed by gestational diabetes, which I was managing through diet and exercise. I checked my ...
