Extractions: There are not many ultrastructural studies on this syndrome. The ultrastructural level of blister formation has not been well characterized. The cutis of the hand back of our patient has been examined at the electronic microscope and it shows a thinned epidermis with a normal keratinization and a compact corneous ortokeratosic layer. A dermo epidermic flaking is noticed in several points and at different levels.
Extractions: Events Cloverleaf Syndrome Kleeblattschadel Deformity, or cloverleaf syndrome is a type of craniosynostosis in which there is premature closure of multiple or all bones of the skull (sutures). This condition causes the head to form a cloverleaf shape. The head may be larger than normal due to accumulation of fluid (hydrocephalic) in the skull. The anomaly has been reported to carry dismal prognosis both in terms of neurological outcome as well as cosmetic appearance if treatment is delayed. Facial malformations include high forehead, severe proptosis, or exophthalmoses, beaked nose, and downward displacement of ears. Multiple breathing and feeding issues may occur.

Extractions: Howard Fuchs, MD, Nashville, Tenn ABSTRACT: Antiphospholipid antibodies have been associated with thrombosis, fetal wasting, and thrombocytopenia. We discuss a case of antiphospholipid syndrome with the rarely recognized presentation of generalized tonic-clonic seizure during pregnancy. This case emphasizes the need for evaluation of possible hypercoagulable states in young adults with cerebrovascular events or newly diagnosed seizures. Autoantibodies found in the antiphospholipid syndrome may have specificity for cardiolipin or interfere with in vitro coagulation. Anticardiolipin antibodies (aCLs) can be measured directly by quantitative assay; lupus anticoagulant (LA) must be detected indirectly by prolonged partial thromboplastin time (PTT), kaolin clotting time, or Russell's viper venom test (RVVT). Lupus anticoagulant and aCLs bind negatively charged or neutral phospholipids1; they have been found in patients with and without associated autoimmune disease, most notably with systemic lupus erythematosus.2 These polyclonal antibodies have become a subject of interest in the medical literature because their presence has been associated with increased risk of vascular occlusion. Antiphospholipid syndrome is commonly associated with arterial or venous thrombosis, cardiac valvular abnormalities, fetal wasting, thrombocytopenia, or cerebrovascular events.3 One report also proposed an association between the presence of LA and late-onset seizures.4 Our case shows a link between seizures, cerebral infarction, and LA.

Extractions: Cecily never really worried that her periods weren't regular because, like many girls, she assumed her monthly cycle would take time to settle down. But then Cecily's periods stopped for several months, so she went to see her doctor. The doctor noticed that Cecily's acne had worsened and that she had gained a lot of weight since her last appointment. She said she wanted to check Cecily for a condition called polycystic (pronounced: pah-lee- sis -tik) ovary sydrome (PCOS) What Is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome? You can't see them, hear them, or feel them, but the hormones that regulate a girl's reproductive system make themselves known in many ways - they are responsible for her periods, breast development, and other aspects of becoming a woman. Both girls and guys produce hormones called androgens (pronounced: an -druh-junz), which play a role in sexual function. Although androgens are sometimes referred to as male hormones, every female produces them, too. In girls with PCOS, the ovaries produce higher than normal amounts of androgens, and this can interfere with egg development and release. Some of the eggs develop into

Extractions: ** Friends..............You have become my PARACHUTE ** Charles Plum, a U.S. Naval Academy graduate, was a jet fighter pilot in Vietnam. After 75 combat missions, his plane was destroyed by a surface-to-air missile. Plumb ejected and parachuted into enemy hands. He was captured and spent six years in a Communist prison. He survived that ordeal and now lectures about lessons learned from that experience. One day, when Plumb and his wife were sitting in a restaurant, a man at another table came up and said, "You're Plumb! You flew jet fighters in Vietnam from the aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk. You were shot down!" "How in the world did you know that?" asked Plumb. "I packed your parachute," the man replied. Plumb gasped in surprise and gratitude. The man pumped his hand and said, "I guess it worked!" Plumb assured him, "It sure did if your chute hadn't worked, I wouldn't be here today." Plumb couldn't sleep that night, thinking about that man. Plumb says, "I kept wondering what he might have looked like in a Navy uniform a Dixie cup hat, a bib in the back, and bell bottom trousers. I wondered how many times I might have passed him on the Kitty Hawk. I wondered how many times I might have seen him and not even said 'Good morning, how are you,' or anything because, you see, I was a fighter pilot and he was just a sailor."
