  • Acute Ischemic Stroke in a Patient with Multiple Sclerosis Presenting with
           Left Hemiplegia and Dysarthria

    • Authors: Bahar SAY; Mehmet TUNÇ, İlknur YARDIMCI, Murat ALPUA, Ufuk ERGÜN
      Abstract: Endothelial dysfunction induced bychronic inflammation in the central nervous system and associatedatherosclerosis increases the risk of cerebrovascular disease in MultipleSclerosis. A 54 years-old woman with multiple sclerosis (secondaryprogressive), hypertension (regular) and EDSS score 6 was brought with sudden loss of poweron her left side as well as speech and swallowing disturbances after high doseintravenous pulse steroid therapy. Acute infarcts with diffusion restrictionwere observed in mesencephalon, cerebellar hemispheres and right side of ponsin diffusion MR which was requested in the emergency department. Carotid-vertebralDoppler ultrasonography and transthoracic echocardiography performed toinvestigate etiology of stroke were normal. Arrhythmia was not observed inrhythm Holter evaluation. Routine laboratory tests, thrombosis and vasculitismarkers were found to be normal. Multiple Sclerosis and immobility wereconsidered as the cause of stroke for this patient. The possibility of strokeand a non-attack pathology should always be kept in mind when MultipleSclerosis patients admit with a new onset neurological dysfunction.

  • Huge Hydro-Pyosalpinx in a Recently Sexually Active Woman

    • Authors: Cemile DAYANGAN SAYAN; Zehra Sema ÖZKAN, Mahmut İlkin YERAL, Funda ERDOĞAN, Zeynep İSLAMBAY
      Abstract: Pelvic inflammatory disease is definedas the inflammation of the upper genital tract. Its spectrum includesendometritis, parametritis, oophoritis, tubo-ovarian abscess and sometimes evenperitonitis. Pelvic inflammatory disease is most often caused by infection fromthe subgenital tract. Reproductive women with intrauterine devices are at highrisk for pelvic inflammatory disease. In this study, we presented a gianthydrosalpinx in a newly sexually active young woman.A 23-years old woman with new-onsetsexual intercourse (4 months), admitted to our gynecology out-patient clinicwith complaints of abdominal pain, fever and fatique. She was suffering frompelvic pain and aberrant vaginal discharge for two days. Her body temperaturewas 38.7oC. Her gynecological examination findings were as follows:normal external genitalia, nulliparous external os with green-brown and heavydischarge. Evaluation with transvaginal ultrasonography showed 91x29mmhydro-pyosalpinx on the right adnex. Parenteral broad-spectrum antibiotic wasgiven for 14 days. The patient was discharged with oral antibiotherapy. At twoweeks and one month controls after cessation of oral antibiotherapy, the sizeof hydrosalpinx decreased to 48x9 mm and 30x8 mm respectively.Pelvic inflammatory disease affecting reproductive age women may developshortly after the onset of sexual activity and may cause serious complicationsin the early period. For this reason, younger women who have newly startedsexual activity need to be informed about sexually transmitted diseases.

  • Borax Poisoning in Pregnancy: Case Report

    • Authors: Cem ECE; Hakan AYGÜN
      Abstract: Functional impairment or thestructural damage in the organism caused by the chemical effect of the toxicagent is called poisoning. Many toxic exposures reported during pregnancies arecaused by accidents. Physical and physiological changes that occur duringpregnancy have increasing or decreasing impact on toxicological effects. Bor(B) with atomic number 5 is a micronutrient element with semi-conductive properties. Metal-bor oxygen compoundsare generally referred as ‘borate’. Mild borate poisoning may lead to nausea,vomiting,whereas in severe poisoning cardiac arrythmia, acidosis, lethargy andhypotension can be detected.In this case report, we aimed to present accidental oral borax (sodiumborate) poisoning by 24 weeks of gestation.

  • Knowledge of Pediatricians Regarding Oral and Dental Health

    • Authors: Volkan ARIKAN; Tuğba SERT, Nuri YELKEN, Cihan DÖĞER
      Abstract: Objective: A pediatrician is the primary care physician who dealswith the medical care of infants, children and adolescents. In these age groups,oral health is an inseparable part of general health. However, pediatricians havescanty exposure to the expertise of oral health care since it’s regarded and practicedas a separate specialization under the aegis of dentistry. The aim of this study was to evaluate the knowledgelevels of pediatricians working in Ankara province regarding oral and dental health.Material and Methods: A questionnaire which had five different sections was distributedto 120 pediatricians who were working at Dr.Sami Ulus Education and Research Hospital. The first one the questionnaires includedsociodemographic information such as age, gender and working year. The second partincluded questions measuring the level of knowledge about pediatric risk factorsfor oral diseases. In the third and fourth sections, physicians were asked aboutthe prevention of oral diseases and attitudes and behaviors regarding examinationand treatment. In the fifth section, pediatricians were questioned aboutthe source of their knowledge about oral health and how frequent it was refreshed.Pearson’schi-square test was used to determine the relationship between the demographic dataand answers to the questionnaire.Results: Seventy-seven pediatricians (10 male, 67 female) who answeredthe questionnaire were included in the present study. While 10.4%of the physiciansstated that the frequency of sugar use does not effect for caries formation, 24.7%statedthey do not know about any possible relationship. 90.2%of the pediatricians statedthat they evaluated their patients' eating habits and 50.6%ofthem expressedthat they always performed oral examination. The relationship between the sex of the participating physiciansand the answers they gave to the questionnaires was evaluated. It was determined that female physicians regard theoral cavity anatomy as a higher risk factor for the formation of tooth decay (p= 0.044), gingivitis (p = 0.044) and malocclusion (p = 0.044).Conclusion: These results show that post-specialist trainingand courses for pediatricians in our country, including oral and dental hygiene,may be useful. Also,inclusion of articles related to oral and dental health in scientific journals forpediatricians can be useful for increasing their awareness regarding the subject.

  • ATTITUDES TOWARDS SCHIZOPHRENIA OF STUDENTS AT FACULTY OF HEALTH SCIENCES

    • Authors: Alper ALPAN; Ekrem KOCAMANOĞLU, Furkan YÜCE, Gizem AKÇAKMAK, Miraç GÜNBAL, Elif AŞIK, Sevil ALBAYRAK
      Abstract: Aim:The stigmatizing attitudes of healthcareprofessionals toward schizophrenia patients may have an adverse effect onpatient lives. The aim of this study was to determine the attitudes of studentsat a school of health sciences about schizophrenia.    Materialsand method: The study was conducted with 291students.  Of the students in the sample,68.7% were women. Among the students, 34.0% were enrolled in the firstbaccalaureate year, 33.0% in the second, 19.6% in the third and 13.4% in thefourth baccalaureate year. Their mean age was 20.551.47. Agroup of 4.5% of the students stated that they had previously receivedpsychiatric treatment and 17.5% that their closerelatives had mental health issues. A Descriptive Information Form andforms consisting of the 32-item schizophrenia sub-section of the questionnaireused in the project conducted by the Psychiatric Research and RehabilitationCenter (PAREM) for the study on "exploring the attitudes of the publicregarding psychiatric diseases" were used to collect data. The required approvals and permissions were obtained forconducting the study. Results:A group of 88.7% of the students statedthat schizophrenia is an illness and 60.8% noted that schizophrenic individualsare mentally ill. Regarding the etiology of the illness, the students said thatthe illness is predominantly caused by the problems individuals experience(51.5%) while others said it stemmed from the structure of an individual'spersonality (45.4%).  Of the students, 55.6%declared that the illness could be treated and 84.0% said that it could betreated with psychotherapy. A section of the students (42.3%) thought thatschizophrenic individuals should not circulate in public, while 47.8% believedschizophrenic patients to be aggressive and 64.3% that such patients could notmake sound decisions. Of the students participating in the study, 91.1% saidthey would not want to be married to a schizophrenic patient, 67.7% said theywould not want to be neighbors and 64.6% stated that they would not want towork with someone who was schizophrenic. It was found that there werestatistically significant differences between the students' departments and thediagnosis of schizophrenia (p<.05).  Conclusion:Itwas concluded that students were able to recognize the illness of schizophreniabut they had substantial misconceptions about its etiology and treatment. Withclose to half of the students exhibiting a stigmatizing attitude towardschizophrenia patients, expressing an aversion to marrying, being neighbors orworking with an individual with schizophrenia, it was concluded that they had asignificant lack of desire to have a schizophrenia patient in their lives.

    • Authors: Tevfik OĞUREL; Nesrin BÜYÜKTORTOP GÖKÇINAR, Hatice Ayhan GÜLER, Yaşar ÖLMEZ, Nevin Hande DİKEL, Zafer ONARAN
      Abstract: Objective: Fifty-three eyes of 53 patients with open eye injurywho admitted Kırıkkale University Faculty of Medicine Department ofOphthalmology between January 1 2014-May 1 2017 were included in thisretrospective study in order to evaluate the epidemiological factors.Material and Methods: Patient data were retrievedfrom patient’s examination files. Patient data included age, gender, type oftrauma (sharp/blunt), location and nature of trauma. Visual acuity at the timeof presentation and at discharge were recorded using Snellen’s visual acuitychart. Details of slit lamp examination including fundus examination werenoted.Results: Of the patients, 43 (81.1%) were maleand 10 (18.9%) were female. Men had a higher rate of open globe trauma thanwomen (p<0.001). The incidence of eye injury decreased with increasing age.Work-related injuries constituted 54.7%of traumatic injuries. Home accidentsconstituted 22.6%, traffic accidents constituted 7.5%, outdoor relatedactivities constituted 13.2%, and sports-related injuries constituted 1.9%ofall open globe injuries.Conclusion: Theconsequences of open globe injuries treatment are not good for patients. Mostof these injuries are preventable. Prioritizing job security and educationalactivities that will raise the public's awareness on this issue can reduce therate of such injuries.

  • Evaluation of Corpus Callosum by Means of Diffusion-Weighted and
           Conventional Magnetic Resonance Imaging According to the Age

    • Authors: M. Yasemin KARADENİZ BİLGİLİ; Rabia KARASU
      Abstract: Objective: Evaluation of corpus callosumby means of diffusion-weighted and conventional magnetic resonance imagingaccording to the age Diffusion-weightedimaging (DWI) is a significant methodthat gives an idea as to the vitality of the brain tissue. DWI is affectedfrom the movements of thepatient at a minimum with its strong magnetic field gradients and is extraordinarily sensitive in reflectionof the changes in the microscopic translationalactivities of the water molecules.Objective of our study is to evaluate by means of diffusion-weighted imaging the ApparentDiffusion Coefficient (ADC) changes byaging which are obtained using the activities of the watermolecules throughout axons. Material and Methods: ADC measurement of corpus callosumat different parts has been studied in 94 patientResults: Minimumand maximum values of the ADCvalue were found as 0.589-0.819 mm²/sn x 10-³ while the average ADC value was found as 0.735 ± 0.043 mm²/sn x 10-³. Our study has revealed a distinctivestatistical increase in the average ADCvalues of corpus callosum in line withaging (p <0.01).Conclusion: Our theory as to the increase in the diffusion capability of the water in the white substance along with aging has been substantiated with the statistically significant results in our data. In other words, it has beendetected that diffusion capability of the water in corpus callosum increasesalong with aging. In conclusion, it is beyond doubt that the diffusion-weightedMRI which is a new functional imaging method in clinic application will beimproved even better in the years to come and can be used in a more widespreadmanner.

  • The Effect of Dimethyl Sulfoxide and Pyracetam on Kidney Damage in the
           Rats of Experimental Unilateral Ureteral Obstruction

    • Authors: Ercan YUVANÇ; Devrim TUĞLU, Üçler KISA, Önder BOZDOĞAN, Bülent BAKAR, Ertan BATİSLAM, Erdal YILMAZ
      Abstract: Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the effects ofDimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) and Piracetam on experimental renal injury in a ratmodel of unilateral uretheral obstruction (UUO).Material and Methods: A total of 24 Sprague-Dawley rats were dividedinto 4 groups with 6 rats each as Group 1: sham group, Group 2: UUO (controlgroup), Group 3: UUO + DMSO 3.8 g/kg, Group 4: UUO + Piracetam 500 mg/kg. Totalantioxidant capacity (TAC), and total oxidant statüs (TOS) were analyzedbiochemically in tissue and blood samples. Tissue samples were also examinedhistopathologically.Results: Biochemical and histopathological renal injury wereevaluated. When the tissue total antioxidant capacity was measured, there was astatistically significant increase in Group 3 and 4 compared to Group 1 andGroup 2. There was a statistically significant increase (p <0.001) betweenGroup 3 and Group 4. When the tissue total oxidant status was examined, theoxidant level in Group 3 and Group 4 was significantly decreased compared toGroup 1 and Group 2. Also, there was a significant decrease between Group 3 andGroup 4. A statistically significant decrease in OSI values was observed inGroup 3 and 4 when compared to Group 1 and Group 2. Histopathologic examinationshowed no significant difference in Group 3 and 4 when compared with Group 2 inkidney tissue.Conclusion: Antioxidanteffects of DMSO and piracetam were determined on biochemical level of tissue.However, it has not been found to be protective histologically. Therefore, itis thought that antioxidant properties of tissues can be determined by studiesto be performed with different doses and durations of these drugs.

Hip pain, increase in leg pain with internal rotation of thehip, onset of sciatic nerve pain with palpation are the basic features ofpiriformis sydrome. Piriformis syndrome is a very rare cause of low back painand can be diagnosed in order to be remembered first, then the other possiblecauses should be excluded. Diagnosis is made by detailed history and carefulphysical examination. Here, we aimed to draw attention to a piriformissyndrome which presented together with L4-L5 radiculopathy in MR imaging andmisdiagnosed as lumbar herniated disc.

  • Epididymo-Orchitis in Children: A Review of 35 Cases

    • Authors: Hasan Rıza AYDIN; Azam DEMİREL
      Abstract: Objective: Epididymo-orchitisis extremely rare in infants and children. The pathophysiologic mechanisms forthe development of Epididymo-orchitis are not well known in most of cases. Thisretrospective review was undertaken to determine causes, management and longterm follow-up of this pathology.Material and Methods: During a 13 years period (between January 1993 and December2006), a total 35 children with Epididymo-orchitis were enrolled in this study.Mean age of patients was 10.5 ± 3.7 (range: 1-14 years). Diagnosis ofepididymo-orchitis was made by patients’ history, physical examination andscrotal Doppler ultrasonographic examination of testes. Urinary systemsonography, urinalysis, urine culture and in cases of doubt intravenousurography were performed to detect the underlying abnormalities.Results: The causes for Epididymo-orchitis were as follows: idiopathicEpididymo-orchitis (n=22), mumps epididymo-orchitis (n=9), bacterialepididymo-orchitis (n=1), tuberculous epididymo-orchitis (n=1) andepididymo-orchitis resulting from Henoch-Schönlein purpura (n=2). In patientwith tuberculosis Epididymo-orchitis, no evidence of tuberculosis infection inhis urine. This case received aproppriate combination chemotherapy andunderwent orchiectomy. Of 35 cases 15 were followed up for long term periods.Mean follow-up time was 49.0 ± 35.8 months (range: 13 months-13 years). Meanvolume of testis was significantly lower in testes with Epididymo-orchitiscompared to those of contralateral ones (p <0.01).Conclusion: Differentiatingthe causes of acute scrotum can sometimes be difficult if only the clinicalfeatures or laboratory data are employed. Doppler ultrasound examination is themost useful method in differential diagnosis especially for torsion of thespermatic cord.

  • Clinical and Neuroimaging Findings of Pseudotumor Cerebri in
           Chıildren

    • Authors: Rahşan GÖÇMEN; Bahadır KONUŞKAN
      Abstract: Objective: Pseudotumor cerebri ischaracterized by symptoms and signs of elevated intracranial pressure withnormal cerebrospinal fluid composition in the absence of intracranial mass,structural lesion, hydrocephalus, or meningeal enhancement on neuroimaging.Although this syndrome most commonly affects female patients at childbearingage, it is also not rare in men and children. We aimed to review the clinicaland neuroimaging findings in children in the present study.Material and Methods: The records of the patients whowere diagnosed with pseudotumor cerebri in our pediatric neurology departmentbetween June 2014- November 217 were retrospectively analyzed.Results: A total of 14 patients diagnosedwith pseudotumor cerebri (7 female, 7 male) were included in the study. Themost common symptom was headache and it was recorded in all of the patients.Two of the patients had dural venous sinus thrombosis. Brain MRI was performed in 11patients. Two of these 11 patients had normal imaging findings. Enlargement of subarachnoid space around the opticnerves was most common imaging findings (64%). Allpatients were treated medically. Only one patient in the series requiredendoscopic optic sheath fenestration.Conclusion: It isshown that the prognosis of pseudotumor cerebri is good provided that earlydiagnosis is made and appropriate treatment and follow-up are accomplished.

  • Investigation of a Possible Relationship Between Clinical and Laboratory
           Values of Acute Pulmonary Embolism and Thrombus Location

    • Authors: CİHAN BEDEL; SADİYE YOLCU, LEVENT ALBAYRAK, NESRİN GÖKBEN ÇETİN, ÖNDER TOMRUK
      Abstract: Objective: In thisstudy, we aimed to investigate whether a relationship existed between theclinical and laboratory values of 132 patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PE)diagnosed in the emergency department and the location of the thrombus.Material and Methods: One hundred and thirty two patients with acute pulmonaryembolism diagnosed and treated in the emergency service between January 2013and January 2015 were retrospectively investigated. Patients were divided intotwo groups according to their age as below 65 and above 65 years-old. Wells andGeneva scoring systems were used for clinical scoring purposes. Patient dataretrieved from hospital records were retrospectively analyzed in detail.Results: A PE wassignificantly higher in women over 65 years (p = 0.03). The incidence of PE wassignificantly higher in patients with immobility, stroke, coronary arterydisease and in elderly patients with heart failure (p = 0.001, p = 0.017, p =0.012, p = 0.036 respectively). PE was significantly higher in the group whounderwent surgical operation and had trauma (p = 0.015, p = 0.024). Well’s scoring system predicted pulmoner embolisignificantly better than the Geneva score (p <0.001). The Geneva score wassignificantly lower in the younger group (p = 0.015). When serum D-dimer level was over 500 μg / mL, theincrease in pulmonary emboli incidence was significant (p = 0.022). Presence of proximally localized thrombus was found to besignificantly higher in patients with major trauma (p = 0.022). The proximal embolism rate in patients with highD-dimer levels was significantly increased compared to patients with distalembolus (p = 0.043). In patientswith a high Well's score, the rate of proximally located pulmonary embolus wassignificantly higher than distally located pulmonary emboli (p = 0.004). In patients with high Geneva score, proximally locatedpulmonary embolus was significantly common compared to distally locatedpulmonary emboli (p=0.007).Conclusion: Accordingto our study, in PE patients major trauma, increased D-Dimer levels, higherWells scores and higher Geneva scores indicate proximally located thrombus. Wethink that more detailed prospective studies should be done in order to achieveclearer results.

  • Incidental MRI Findings for Degenerative Disc and Vertebra Pathologies in
           Pediatric Patients

    • Authors: Fatma Dilek GÖKHARMAN; Sonay AYDIN, Ömer KAZCI, Pınar Nercis KOŞAR
      Abstract: Objective: Incidentalfindings about vertebras or intervertebral discs, detected at MRI exams inadults is a widely studied subject and there is vast amount of detailedinformation about this. However, in the pediatric population, there is notenough number of studies to define the incidence and prevalance of degenerativespine diseases. In this study, we aimed to detect the incidence of degenerativespine diseases in pediatric population by using archived MRI scans which wereperformed with indications other than degenerative spine diseases.Material and Methods: MRI scans, performed with indications other than degenerativespine diseases, between 2015-2017 were retrospectively examined to determinerelevant findings. Thirty-one patients are included in the study.Results: Pfirrmann 2degenerations were detected in 5 (16%) patients, Pfirrmann 3 degenerations werepresent in 4 (12%) patients. There was no patient classified as Pfirrmann 4 or5 subgroup. Modic type 1 degeneration were present in one patient while therewas one patient with Modic type 2 degeneration. We found disc bulging at L2-L3 intervertebraldisc in a 17 year-old male patient.Conclusion: Degenerativespine patologies can be found in pediatric population, even though they arerare. MRI exams are very successful in detecting the pathologies even inasymptomatic patients. Defining the incidence and prevelance of degenerativespine findings in pediatric population can provide more accurate diagnosis bycreating an awareness.

  • The Value of Ischemia-Modified Albumin Levels in Differential Diagnosis of
           Patients with Isolated Headache in the Emergency Department

    • Authors: Aynur ŞAHİN; Vildan ÖZER, Özgür TATLI, Yunus KARACA, Serap ÖZER YAMAN, Süleyman Caner KARAHAN
      Abstract: Objective: The aim of this study is to investigate the value of IschemiaModified Albumin (IMA) levels in patients with isolated headache at emergencydepartment and to evaluate the differential diagnosis of headache etiology.Material and Methods: This study was planned as a prospective, single-center study.A total 310 patients were included in the study. We sorted the data out ingroups according to etiology of headache as primary headache group, secondaryheadache group; namely life threatening headache group, non-life-threateningheadache group, and tension, cluster, migraine headache groups.Results: The most common etiology was migraine (32.6%) in patientswith headache. Serum IMA levels were compared between groups and there was nostatistically significant difference between groups of migraine, cluster andtension type pain. Also there was no statistically significant difference amongthe groups of primary and secondary headache groups and among life threateningand non-life headache groups (p>0.05).Conclusion: Our study was the first study in the literature thatinvestigates the value of serum IMA level in the differential diagnosis ofheadache. Additionally, we found that the serum IMA levels are not valuable inthe differential diagnosis of headache.
