Uncommon Cause of Gastrointestinal Bleeding
Case Report

1. Introduction

Gastric antral vascular ectasia is an uncommon cause of chronic gastrointestinal bleeding or iron deficiency anaemia [1]. The condition is associated with dilated small blood vessels in the antrum, or the last part of the stomach. It is also called watermelon stomach because streaky long red areas that are present in the stomach may resemble the markings on watermelon [2]. GAVE is associated with a number of conditions, including portal hypertension, chronic renal failure and collagen vascular diseases particularly scleroderma. GAVE is treated with treatment through the endoscope, including argon plasma coagulation and electrocautery. Other medical treatments have been tried and include estrogen and progesterone therapy and anti-fibrinolytic drugs such as tranexamic acid.

Sexual Function and Dysfunction among Patients with Systemic and Auto-Immune Diseases
Review Article

1. Summary

Systemic autoimmune diseases affect various organs and they can determine sexual dysfunction in females and males patients particularly with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), systemic sclerosis (SSc), Sjögren syndrome (SS), antiphospholipid syndrome, Behçet’s disease and other vasculitis. Sexual dysfunction among patients with rheumatic diseases is multifactorial due to disease-related factors (chronic disease aspects, disease activity) as well as therapy.

Intramural Hematoma of Esophagus After Lifting a Heavy Sack of Rice Which Mimicking Cardiovascular Disorder
Case Presentation

1. Abstract

1.1. Introduction: We report here a case of an intramural hematoma of the esophagus. The extension of this was from cervical esophagus to lesser curvature of stomach intramural hematoma.

1.2. Case: This very rare event in older women is more common in and can be missed as cardiovascular or emergent disease of esophagus. The most common clinical presentations are severe chest pain, dysphagia or odynophagia and mild hematemesis. The common risk factors are blunt, penetrating or iatrogenic injuries, Valsalva maneuver and antiguagilan medication, in literatures spontaneous cases have also been reported.

A Wandering Atrial Pacemaker in Inferior Wall Infarction. Escape or Survival Rhythm? A Case Reports
Case Report

1. Abstract

Coronary sinus rhythm is an ectopic atrial rhythm supposedly originating from a pacemaker at the mouth of the coronary sinus; recognized in the electrocardiogram by P-waves that are inverted in leads II, III, and VF with a normal or prolonged P-R interval. In myocardial infarction, this presentation can reveal a wandering atrial pacemaker. We present a case of a wandering atrial pacemaker with inferior wall MI complicated by complete atrioventricular block.

Comments on Article Continuous Shortwave Diathermy with Exercise Reduces Pain and Improves Function in Lateral Epicondylitis More Than Sham Diathermy: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Editorial

1. Editorial

I read very carefully the article “Continuous shortwave diathermy with exercise reduces pain and improves function in Lateral Epicondylitis more than sham diathermy: A randomized controlled trial.” by Babaei-Ghazani et al. (2020) [1] and I would like to congratulate the authors because this was the first trial to investigate the effectiveness of Continuous Shortwave Diathermy (CSWD) in Lateral Epicondylitis (LE) patients. However, I would like to comment the following:

A Chest Contusion Following Car Accident, In Obese Patient Suffering from Obstructive
Case Report

1. Abstract

We describe the case of a 50 years old male patient, who, affected by Obesity and OSAS, came to our ambulatory for dyspnea, shortness of breath and astenia. The subject described that the week before had a car accident and was taken to the ER, where received a chest x-ray which resulted negative.

Prophylaxis Against COVID-19: A Possible Way of Effective Control Against COVID-19
Editorial

1. Abstract
COVID-19 emerged in the later part of 2019 is a public health emergency of international concern. Though definite treatment and vaccine against the Coronavirus are not available, yet COVID-19 prevention and prophylaxis are important to appease the pandemic burden. An effective prophylactic agent will prevent disease in high-risk groups, e.g., medical professionals managing COVID-19 patients.

Non-Conventional COVID Treatment Methods 19
Research Article

1. Abstract
In bioelectronic terms, the organism is understood as an integrated circuit of biological piezo, pyroelectrics, ferromagnets and semiconductors, filled with bioplasm and managed electronically by quantum processes. The presence of semiconductors in a biological system is synonymous with the presence of an electronic integrated device, therefore a living organism can be seen as a complex electronic device, analogous to technical devices.

A LGI1 Mutation (C.263 T>A P.Leu88*) Identified in a Chinese Patient with Epilepsy: A Case Study
Case Report

1. Abstract
1.1. Objective: To investigate the genetic causes of a 13-year-old Chinese female proband with epilepsy.
1.2. Methods: Clinical diagnosis and next-generation sequencing.
1.3. Results: The proband carries a heterozygous nonsense mutation (c.263 T>A p.Leu88*) in LGI1 gene. This mutation was evaluated as a pathogenic mutation based on the standards and guidelines of ACMG and clinical research publications.
1.4. Conclusion: The heterozygous nonsense mutation (c.263 T>A p.Leu88*) in LGI1 gene is the genetic cause of epilepsy for the proband. So far, this mutation of LGI1 gene related with epilepsy is the first reported in the worldwide overall populations.

Atypical Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome with Isolation of Aepec in the Stool Culture
Case Report

1. Abstract
Thrombotic Microangiopathy (TMA) is based on a vascular endothelial injury and is characterized by microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia and organ malfunction of variable intensity. The etiology includes Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP); Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS), caused by Shiga Toxin-Producing Escherichia Coli (STEC) in 90% of cases; atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (aHUS), and secondary TMA.
