Myxoma mix-up. A case report


, : Myxoma mix-up. A case report. Journal of Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology 12(3): 207-209

We present a 63-year-old lady who had atrial myxoma. The diagnostic difficulties distinguishing this from giant cell arteritis are highlighted. In particular, both conditions caused choroidal and retinal infarcts, anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy, with raised acute phase reactants. The authors stress the importance of continued ophthalmoscopy as the fundal changes become more apparent.

The anesthetic potencies of binary mixtures of the gases Ar, N2O and SF6 were measured using mice. The mixtures SF6-N2O and N2O-Ar showed additive behavior, whereas the constituents of the mixture S6-Ar were non-additive, having a smaller total po...

The concept of the atomic charge is extensively used to model the electrostatic properties of proteins. Atomic charges are not only the basis for the electrostatic energy term in biomolecular force fields but are also derived from quantum mechanic...

Synergism with lipopolysaccharide and IL-1 beta. Stimulation of human monocytes with immobilized mAb directed against the CD45, CD44, or LFA-3 Ag induced the production of macrophage-CSF (M-CSF). M-CSF-specific transcripts appeared at 3 h poststimulation, were further increased by 12 h, and were...
