Ingestion of headscarf pin is a particular type of foreign body ingestion sometimes experienced by adolescent girls and even older women while putting on their headscarf. We report on a 13-year-old girl who presented at the emergency unit at our hospital within 48 hr after accidentally swallowing a headscarf pin. The pin was successfully retrieved from the ascending colon through colonoscopy. Headscarf pin ingestion is a serious problem among women who wear headscarves for various reasons. However, the retrieval of such pins from the colon through colonoscopy has been infrequently reported...

Coronary heart disease is a serious complication of dyslipidemia. Pitavastatin is a more commonly prescribed medication for the treatment of dyslipidemia. Here, we report the case of a 37-year-old female, a known patient with well-controlled bronchial asthma. She was recently found to be dyslipidemic and started on pitavastatin calcium 4 mg once a day (OD). On the 10th day of treatment, she began to have crushing chest pain and was admitted to the hospital. All investigations for coronary heart disease came out negative...

With a concomitant increase in immune-related diseases such as allergic diseases, Type 1 diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, inflammatory bowel disease and other immune-related responses such as immunodeficiency, various infectious, diseases, vaccines, and malignancies, it has become very important to have a well-balanced and properly functioning immune system for the maintenance of human health. Recent scientific research has strongly suggested propolis as one of the most promising immunomodulation agents...

BACKGROUND: There is no consensus among medical experts as to whether patients with epilepsy (PWEs) should be permitted to drive. PWEs who have had uncontrolled seizures in the past year are at an increased risk of road traffic accidents, often leading to the destruction of property, injury, or death. Currently, there is no clear policy on whether PWEs can drive in Saudi Arabia. Existing policies attempt to balance the potentially harmful and beneficial aspects of the issue. The purpose of this study was to measure the prevalence of PWEs who are unfit to drive...

BACKGROUND: Methemoglobin (MetHb) level in blood indicates exposure to nitrogenous compounds. Acquired methemoglobinemia as a result of exposure to nitrates in drinking water is primarily an issue for infants. The amount of nitrates in Zamzam water is said to be on the high side. This study was designed to determine the effect of prolonged use of Zamzam water on MetHb in rat pups. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Wistar rat pups ( n = 52, 3 weeks old) were divided into four equal groups...

BACKGROUND: The quality of life (QoL) of children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has not been addressed in Saudi Arabia despite the considerable attention it has on account of its prevalence, duration of illness, and sociopsychological effects. The aim of this study was to report on the QoL of children with ADHD and test the concord between children's and parents' reports. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Using the generic PedsQLâ„¢ (version 4.0) from both children's and parents' perspectives, a cross-sectional study of 112 children was conducted on children aged 5-18 years with an established diagnosis of ADHD attending child psychiatry clinics of three referral hospitals in Riyadh between December 2015 and May 2016...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have reported valid comprehensive data on lifestyle habits of Saudi college females. In addition, studies on sedentary behaviors (SBs) and the duration of sleep of Saudi college students are rare. Saudi females appear to be less physically active and therefore, at a higher risk of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate lifestyle patterns of Saudi college females, including physical activity (PA), SBs, duration of sleep, and dietary habits...

Ali R AlHayek, Manahel A Almulhem, Mohammed A Alhashim, Nasser A Aljazan
Plunging ranula (PR) is a cystic mass presenting on the lateral side of the neck with or without a history of the usual presentation of an intraoral lesion. "PR" is recognized as an uncommon lesion that has been found predominantly in the third decade of life mostly in males. However, the exact prevalence of "PR" is not yet known. We report a rare case of an extensive PR that reached the parapharyngeal space in a 17-year-old Saudi female. The diagnosis was made when she presented to the ENT clinic with swellings in the right submandibular and right floor of the mouth...

Research is scarce on bullying experienced by medical and nonmedical students in Saudi Arabia unlike what is found in Western countries.
