25. Medical Eponyms: Recognizing the Medical Greats

Coincidence The French physician, Armand Trousseau (1801-1867), was another prolific physician of his era. His name is associated with several eponyms, including Trousseau sign (spasm in hypocalcemia) and Trousseau spot (red streak from scratching the skin in meningitis). As the “physician-in-chief” of the Hotel Dieu in Paris, he published several lecture texts. One of these texts was entitled “Phlegmasia Alba Dolens.” In this lecture about painful white inflammation caused by venous thrombosis, Trousseau (...) , in the context of Victorian England, his description was somewhat liberal. Down placed Caucasians on the same racial spectrum and from the same progenitor as Mongols. During his time, many were using the idea [xviii]. “Mongolism” was the preferred term until the 1960s, when a Mongolian delegate at the [xix]. It is interesting that Down not Dominique was honored with the eponymn, since Down’s colorful description gave birth to the controversial language. The French prefer the term “Trisomie 21

of the nine horse specimens yielded an influenza A virus. None of the 131 herder households surveyed had recently vaccinated their horses against EIV. It seems likely that sporadic EIV is enzootic in multiple Mongolian aimags. This finding, the infrequent use of EIV vaccination, periodic prevalence of highly pathogenic avian influenza, and the mixing of domestic and wild equid herds suggest that Mongolia may be a hot spot for novel EIV emergence. (...) Low Prevalence of Enzootic Equine Influenza Virus among Horses in Mongolia Horses are critically important for Mongolian herders' livelihoods, providing transportation and food products, and playing important cultural roles. Equine influenza virus (EIV) epizootics have been frequent among Mongolia's horses, with five occurring since 1970. We sought to estimate the prevalence for EIV infection among horses and Bactrian camels with influenza-like illness between national epizootics. In 2016-2017

Body mass was recorded at the beginning (0 h) and end of each assay (72 h). Results showed effects of PHA (...) assay, sex and taxa on body mass. Relative maximum swelling response (PHAmax) ranged from 18.58-29.75%, 9.77 to 20.56% and 21.97 to 31.78% and its occurrence over time was apparent 10.6-19.72 h , 7.74-14.01 h and 17.39-23.94 h postinjection for Asiatic toads, Dark-spotted frogs and Mongolian toads, respectively.

34. Dermal melanocytosis and associated disorders. (PubMed)

Dermal melanocytosis and associated disorders. Dermal melanocytosis is commonly seen in the newborn period and is frequently a concern to parents and providers. Four clinically distinct entities are recognized: nevus of Ota, nevus of Ito, Mongolian spots, and dermal melanocyte hamartoma. This article reviews these disorders, with special emphasis on melanocyte biology and important associated systemic disorders such as rare malignant transformations and inborn errors of metabolism.Recent (...) findings have highlighted the increased risk of malignancy in patients with nevus of Ota, especially ocular, central nervous system, and cutaneous tumors. Although rarely seen, cutaneous melanoma occurs in association with nevus of Ito. Extensive, dark, and progressive Mongolian spots may be more likely than isolated lesions to be associated with inborn errors of metabolism, such as Hurler's disease and monosialotetrahexosylganglioside (GM1) gangliosidosis.
