Acute tetraparesis revealing acute lymphoblastic leukemia relapse: a case report and literature review

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common cancer of childhood and an important cause of death from cancer during the first two decades of life [1]. Global incidence rates have been estimated to be between 1.08 to 2.12 per 100,000 person-years, the condition being four times more frequent in childhood than in adulthood [2]. Recent advances in the fields of diagnostics and therapeutics have improved prognostic outcomes in patients.

The social effects and potential value of combination of Chinese herbal medicine with Inter- net hospitals during the COVID-19 epidemic

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by SARS-CoV-2 out- breaks first in China on December 2019. Unfortunately, because the virus shows the characteristics of rapid human-to-human transmis- sion, a total of 8,569,962 cases were confirmed and 457,388 deaths were happened worldwide as of June 20. In consequence, public’s health-related fears are also fueled, and WHO defines COVID-19 as a pandemic.

A case report on primary tuberculosis of glans penis-a rare presentation

Tuberculosis is a bacterial infectious disease caused by Mycobacteri- um tuberculosis [1, 2]. This bacteria is mostly transmitted through the respiratory route. On clinical manifestation, pulmonary tuberculosis makes up 70% of cases, and extra-pulmonary tuberculosis 10-30%.


Wilkie’s syndrome or Superior Mesenteric Artery (SMA) syndrome is characterized by compression of the third portion of the duodenum caused by a hyperacute angle (<22–25°) between the SMA and the aorta. This leads to the classic presenting symptoms of severe epigas- tric abdominal pain, postprandial fullness, early satiety and vomiting. Sometimes pain can be aggravated with lying supine and relieved in knee chest position, a maneuver that increases the aortomesenteric angle with subsequent relief of bowel obstruction.

Brain MR imaging findings in children with congenital muscular dystrophies

Congenital muscular dystrophies (CMDs) are a heterogeneous group of disorders presenting early in life during infancy or soon after birth with muscle weakness and hypotonia, sometime associated to severe brain involvement and histologically presenting with dystrophic lesions. They are classified on the basis of the clinical features, pathologic findings and pattern of inheritance. In fact most of these disorders are inherited and linked to specific genes. Several CDMs classifications have been proposed.
