: Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is a rare idiopathic condition with immunopathogenic mechanisms where there is chronic progressive destruction of the biliary tree. Secondary sclerosing cholangitis (SSC) is clinically comparable to PSC, but is caused by specific processes which directly damage the biliary tree; examples include recurrent pancreatitis, bile duct malignancy, congenital bile duct abnormalities. A new cause of SSC has been described during or following significant critical ill...

BACKGROUND: B-mode ultrasound can be used to measure diaphragm thickness at the zone of apposition. We believe it is necessary to develop normal values for diaphragm thickness at rest in a large group of healthy subjects and compare them with international results. METHODS: Ultrasound measurements of diaphragm thickness at expiratory rest were taken in 109 healthy individuals, with results stratified by sex, body mass index, and thorax circumference. The following methods were used for analysis ...

Liver angiosarcoma is a rare disease, accounting for only 2% of primary liver malignancy. No specific symptoms and signs are closely associated with this disease and usually presents as an abdominal mass. The prognosis of liver angiosarcoma is very poor. We report a case with primary liver angiosarcoma presenting with hemorrhagic shock and hemoperitoneum due to tumor rupture.

Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis has a low frequency especially in adults, and its demyelinating immunologic nature is usually single and can present data suggesting multifocal disease of the central nervous
El vinculo cerebro-corazon o viceversa tiene varias dimensiones de abordaje y principalmente dividido en tres categorias: 1) los efectos del corazon sobre el cerebro (accidente cerebrovascular asociado a embolos cardiacos), 2) los efectos del cerebro sobre el corazon (enfermedades cardiacas de origen neurogenico) y, 3) los sindromes neurocardiacos como es el caso de la enfermedad de Friedreich. La presente revision se centra en dar un panorama general a la comunidad medica, sobre la capacidad qu...

Introduction: We report the first isolated case in Mexico of infection by Chryseobacterium indologenes, an emerging pathogen in immunocompromised patients. Case presentation: The examined case was a 59-year-old male who had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, had received a bone marrow transplant, and had been hospitalized for 21 days. This patient presented with evidence of a systemic inflammatory response, and C. indologenes was identified in his blood culture. He exhibited an adequate c...
