Uterine prolapse

Uterine prolapse

When the uterus descends from its normal position in the pelvis farther down into the vagina, it is a condition called uterine prolapse. In normal cases, the muscles and ligaments that make up the pelvic floor hold the uterus in its place. However, when these ligaments and muscles become stretched and weakened, they won't provide an adequate support for the uterus. This will cause the uterus to descend into the vaginal canal. In most ... more

Retractile testicle

Retractile testicle

The testicle that may move back and forth between its proper position in the bag of skin hanging behind the penis (scrotum) and the groin is called a retractile testicle. It may be easily guided by hand into the scrotum during a physical examination when the retractile testicle is residing in the groin. Sometime before or during puberty, the problem of a retractile testicle goes away for most boys. The testicle permanently moves to its ... more

This condition is the outcome of unusually low levels of platelets, the cells helping the blood clot, and it occurs in both children and adults. Although idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura is usually chronic in adults, but children usually develop it after a viral ... more

Osteomalacia

Osteomalacia

Vitamin D deficiency often results in softening of the bones, a condition called osteomalacia. In children, this condition is named rickets. The likelihood of soft bones to bow and fracture are more than those of harder, healthy bones. Osteoporosis is a bone disorder that contributes to bone fractures; osteomalacia is not the same as osteoporosis. A weakening of previously constructed bone is the cause of osteoporosis, while a defect in the ... more

Effect of physical inactivity on major non-communicable diseases worldwide: an analysis of burden of disease and life expectancy

Effect of physical inactivity on major non-communicable diseases worldwide: an analysis of burden of disease and life expectancy

The Lancet, 380/9838 Published: 2012-07-21

Strong evidence shows that physical inactivity increases the risk of many adverse health conditions, including major non-communicable diseases such as coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and breast and colon cancers, and shortens life expectancy. Because much of the world's population is inactive, this link presents a major public health issue

Global trends in antiretroviral resistance in treatment-naive individuals with HIV after rollout of antiretroviral treatment in resource

Global trends in antiretroviral resistance in treatment-naive individuals with HIV after rollout of antiretroviral treatment in resource

The Lancet, doi:10.1016 Published: 2012-07-23

The emergence and spread of high levels of HIV-1 drug resistance in resource-limited settings where combination antiretroviral treatment has been scaled up could compromise the effectiveness of national HIV treatment programmes. We aimed to estimate changes in the prevalence of HIV-1 drug resistance in treatment-naive individuals with HIV since initiation of rollout in resource-limited settings.
