Pruritus is a common symptom in patients with various hepa- tobiliary disorders, including cholestasis of pregnancy. 138–140 The skin in hepatic pruritus is often generally hyperpigmented and excoriated. 141 The hands and feet are often the worst- affected areas. 139 Pruritus in association with fatigue at presen- tation may be a marker for more aggressive disease, for exam- ple primary biliary cholangitis. 142 There is a poor correlation between pruritus and bile acid levels, suggesting that other (...)

from work absenteeism. Dysphonia is often caused by benign or self-limited conditions, but it may also be the presenting symptom of a more serious or progressive condition requiring prompt diagnosis and management. This clinical practice guideline (CPG) is as an update of, and replacement for, a guideline published in 2009 by the American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF). An update was necessitated by new primary studies and systematic reviews that suggest (...) adults required proxy input for approximately 25% of the geriatric population. While many self-report measures for dysphonia are available, patients may be unable to complete them. - In these cases, proxy judgments by significant others about QOL are a good alternative. STATEMENT 2. IDENTIFYING UNDERLYING CAUSE OF DYSPHONIA: Clinicians should assess the patient with dysphonia by history and physical examination for underlying causes of dysphonia and factors that modify management .

Specimen types Urine is typically the preferred matrix for pain management drug testing, as it has a longer window of drug detection than blood, has an adequate specimen volume for drug screening and confirmation, and drug markers (either parent drug or metabo- lites) are present in high concentrations. It is also less invasive and doesn’t require a phlebotomist for collection. Disadvantages include a high risk of adulteration

The criteria are both highly specific and sensitive in adults with NF1. 6 In most cases, the diagnosis can be easily made based on a history, physical exam, and pedigree review and no additional imaging or NF1 genetic testing is needed. These issues and recommendations for the health supervision of children with NF1are (...) the skin. cNFs are histologically similar to PN but do not appear to undergo malignant transformation. 79 Although cNFs are not life-threatening, they can lead to significant morbidity.

This study described an increase in the number of cNFs with increasing age and revealed that 10 of 30 (33%) women underwent an increase in size and number of cNFs during pregnancy
