Consequences of In Utero Exposure to Synthetic Estrogens and Progestogens for Children

Female sex hormones mainly include estrogens and progestogens. They are usually given to women in the form of synthetic products that mimic the effects of natural hormones, and bind to the same receptors. Since the 1940s, these synthetic hormones have been ad- ministered to illions of pregnant women all over the world to "avoid miscarriages" or for comfort, alone or in a cocktail : These include es- trogens as diethylstilbestrol (Distilbène® or DES), alone or combined with 17-α-EthinylEstradiol (EE), which is even more potent than DES, and / or Synthetic Progestins (SP) whose impact on the developing brain of children exposed in utero has recently been demonstrated in international studies [1, 2].

A Case of Prurigo Nodularis in an Unlikely Setting

Prurigo nodularis (PN) is a rare, chronic dermatologic disease that causes intense pruritus, leading to significant physiological and psy- chological discomfort and a diminished quality of life. The estimated prevalence of PN is 72 per 100,000 Americans, and most often presents later in adulthood, between the ages of 51-65, with African-American patients 3.4 times more likely to have PN than white patients [1, 2]. The typical clinical presentations of this dermatological disorder are intensely pruritic papules, plaques, and nodules that are multiple in number, firm, and flesh to pink colored.

Localised Cutaneous Amyloidosis of the Glans Penis: A Case Report and Review of the Literature

Robotic-Assisted Minimally Invasive Transforaminal Interbody Fusion (TLIF) Using A New Hands-Free 3D Digital Microscope with Head-Mounted Display (HMD): Technical Note

Since the 1970s, the operating microscope (OM) has been a standard tool for visualization and illumination of the surgical field during spi- nal microsurgery. However, some limitations have been documented, e.g., the limited movability of the binocular lenses and discomfort experienced by surgeons due to the abnormal postures required, and efforts have been made to replace the OM with exoscopic and digi- tal systems.

An ‘Uncommon early lineage switch’ in an MLL rearranged adult B-lineage Acute Lympho- blastic Leukemia to Mixed-phenotypic acute leukemia (B/Myeloid)

Lineage switch is an infrequent phenomenon with an incidence of ~ 0.6% of all de novo leukemias and seen in almost 6% of relapsed cases. This phenomenon is observed following therapy or at the time of relapse. Switch in lineage tends to occur in younger patients and is associated with particularly poor outcomes.

Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension: Description of an Atypical Case

Headache is a frequent reason consulting physicians in pediatric pa- tients. Headaches appear in about 37-51% of patients younger than 7 years and about 57-82% of patients under 15. Chronic headaches are more infrequent, with 2.5% of kids under 7 and 15% of teenagers under 15 suffering from this ailment.
