Esophageal moniliasis: report of a case with roentgenographic findings

, : Esophageal moniliasis: report of a case with roentgenographic findings. Annals of Internal Medicine 49(3): 684-687

The roentgenological appearance of the oesophagus of a patient with leukaemia and oesophageal moniliasis (Candida albicans), X-rayed on account of dysphagia, was characterized by marked irregularity, narrowing, and rigidity. This was due to a pseudo-membrane produced by an extremely thick growth of C. albicans, which lined almost the entire oesophageal mucosa.

A common polymorphism within the nitric oxide sythanse-1 (NOS1) gene (rs6490121), initially identified as risk variant for schizophrenia, has been associated with variation in working memory and IQ. Here we investigated how this variation might be...

Although the zonation of the adrenal cortex has a clear functional role, the mechanisms that maintain it remain largely conjectural.
