Periodic Fevers: What to Watch For Complications include amyloidosis and end-stage renal disease

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A young child with recurrent fevers may have one of the ever-expanding list of autoinflammatory disorders, some of which can be traced to a single mutated gene such as MEFV in familial Mediterranean fever (FMF).
For other recurrent fever syndromes, however, no gene mutation has yet been identified, including the condition referred to as periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis, and cervical adenitis (PFAPA) syndrome, according to Cagri Toruner, MD.
As the prototypic autoinflammatory disease, FMF is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner, and the mutations in MEFV, which encodes the protein pyrin, are common in individuals from the Mediterranean region and Middle East. This disorder is usually diagnosed before age 20.
It is characterized by intermittent fevers lasting 1 to 3 days, accompanied by serositis in approximately 30% of patients, abdominal pain in 95%, arthritis in 70%, and rash in 30%. The characteristic rash is an erysipeloid erythema, typicall…

New research has zoomed in on the brain's speech recognition abilities, uncovering the mechanism through which the brain discerns between ambiguous sounds.

New research has zoomed in on the brain's speech recognition abilities, uncovering the mechanism through which the brain discerns between ambiguous sounds. The brain deploys fascinating mechanisms to make out sounds. "Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae."
You, like many others, were probably able to read the above sentence without a problem — which is the reason for the mass online appeal this meme had more than a decade ago.
Psycholinguists explain that the meme is, in itself, false, as the exact mechanisms behind the brain's visual "autocorrect" feature remain unclear.
Rather than the first and last letter being key to the brain's ability to recognize misspelled words, explain the researchers, context might be of greater importance in visual word recognition.

Signs of concussion in children and toddlers | Medical Education Summit 2018 |Osaka | October | Submit your research paper | Medical News |

Concussion is an injury to the braincaused by either a blow to the head or body.A child’s developing brainis more at risk than an adult’s, so parents and caregivers may want to know the signs of concussion in children. A survey published in 2017, looking at more than 13,000 adolescents in the United States, found that almost one-fifth reported having had a concussion at least once. In this article, we will look at the warning signs and how to spot concussion in a child, plus what to do if you think a child has concussion. WHAT IS CONCUSSION? Concussion is a type of brain injury that happens when a blow to the head or body causes the brain to move in its surrounding fluid. The brain can twist or knock against the skull, temporarily affecting how a child thinks and acts. Concussion is a mild form of traumatic brain injury or TBI. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF CONCUSSION IN CHILDRENA child with concussion may have a headache and feel dizzy. It may not be a hard hit that causes a concussion. In mos…

SPEECH ON SEASONAL VARIATION OF NUTRITIONAL STATUS | OSAKA | OCTOBER | 08-09, 2018 | MEDICAL EDUCATION SUMMIT 2018 | medical conferences

Conferences in Medical Education, Health Education and Nursing education. Osaka Conferences | Japan conferences | 2018

Medical conferences are supposed to fulfill a critically important role in the ongoing education of physicians, technicians, nurses, and other health care providers.
 There are many functions which these conferences meet apart from merely imparting education: sharpening the skills, ability to interact with peers and KOLs, trying new equipment, evolving novel and locally relevant ideas, developing consensus in contentious areas all leading to improvement in health-care delivery, and patient outcomes.

 However, at the moment, the conferences are too many and not very effective in delivering the purported benefit. Further, there is need to reconcile the entanglement of interests between the organizers (usually physicians) and the fund donors (industry).
