A fixed drug eruption consists of erythematous patches that appear on the skin and/or mucous membranes following administration of a drug which, once healed, leaves residual hyperpigmentation. We report a 76-year-old male who presented to the Thriasio General Hospital, Athens, Greece, in 2016 with erythema, oedema and blistering of the lower lip and glans penis following the administration of silodosin for benign prostatic hyperplasia. The eruption regressed two weeks after silodosin was discontinued.

Plasma cell leukaemia (PCL) is one of the most aggressive and rarest forms of plasma cell dyscrasia. However, the diagnostic criteria for this condition have not yet been revised and there is no specific treatment to significantly improve the course of the disease. We report a 69-year-old male who presented to the Lok Nayak Hospital, New Delhi, India, in 2017 with dyspnoea and chest pain. A peripheral blood smear showed an absolute plasma cell count of 2.16 × 109 /L. A bone marrow examination showed 61% atypical plasma cells exhibiting kappa light chain restriction...

Amyloidosis is a disorder characterised by the extracellular deposition of amyloid, a fibrillary protein, in various organs such as the lungs. Pulmonary nodular amyloidosis can mimic other lung conditions that present with pulmonary nodules, such as metastasis, sarcoidosis and hyalinising granuloma. We report a 60-year-old man who presented to the Royal Hospital, Muscat, Oman, in 2017 with a history of shortness of breath upon exertion, orthopnoea and bilateral lower limb swelling. A chest X-ray showed bilateral nodular opacities...

Paediatric hypercalcaemia is a rare condition which can be easily overlooked or misdiagnosed. We report two paediatric patients who presented to the Department of Paediatrics, Pardubice Hospital, Pardubice, Czech Republic, in 2009 and 2010, respectively. Each patient was diagnosed with hypercalcaemia due to a different cause. The first case involved a seven-month-old infant who presented with failure to thrive, vomiting and psychomotor retardation. Fluorescent in situ hybridisation revealed Williams-Beuren syndrome...

A dual left anterior descending (LAD) artery is a rare congenital anomaly which is classified into different types based on the origin, course and termination of the short and long LAD arteries. To date, 10 variants of dual LAD artery anomalies have been described. We report a 44-year-old woman who was referred to the Department of Radiology, Royal Hospital, Muscat, Oman, in 2017. Coronary computed tomography angiography revealed a dual LAD artery anomaly in which the short and long LAD arteries shared a common ostium with the right coronary artery from the right coronary sinus...

Primary gastric yolk tumours are extremely rare. We report a 52-year-old male who presented to the Sultan Qaboos University Hospital, Muscat, Oman, in 2017 after having undergone a gastrectomy abroad due to a suspected poorly-differentiated adenocarcinoma. The patient subsequently returned to Oman to receive chemotherapy. However, while undergoing chemotherapy, an abdominal computed tomography scan revealed a lobulated mesenteric mass. Microscopic examination of the resected lesion confirmed a diagnosis of a yolk sac tumour...

The surgical management of paediatric patients with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis, mandibular retrognathia and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is challenging. We report a nine-year-old boy who presented to the Department of Oral Health, Sultan Qaboos University Hospital, Muscat, Oman, in 2016 with complaints of limited mouth opening, loud snoring and excessive daytime sleepiness. He was diagnosed with TMJ ankylosis, mandibular retrognathia and severe OSA. The patient initially underwent mandibular distraction and, subsequently, release of the TMJ ankylosis and rib graft reconstruction...

Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate the incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) cases at the Leeds General Infirmary, Leeds, UK, as well as to survey current VTE practices and preventative strategies at other UK-based electrophysiology (EP) centres. Methods: This retrospective study involved all patients who underwent EP studies at Leeds General Infirmary from January 2014 to December 2016. In addition, a telephone survey was conducted of 35 other UK-based EP centres...

Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate the appropriateness of antibiotic use and factors associated with outcomes among sepsis patients in an intensive care unit (ICU). Methods: This cross-sectional study was carried out from February to May 2017 and included all adult patients with sepsis or septic shock admitted to the ICU of Dharmais Cancer Hospital, Jakarta, Indonesia. Data were collected from the patients' medical records. Results: A total of 60 patients with sepsis or septic shock were admitted to the ICU during the study period...

Objectives: Lean management (LM) principles were first developed by a Japanese manufacturing company to maximise value and minimise waste in the automotive industry. However, these principles can also be applied in the healthcare sector. This study aimed to illustrate the process of implementing LM principles in a radiation oncology department to streamline workflow and identify and reduce waste. Methods: This study took place in the Department of Radiation Oncology, Royal Hospital, Muscat, Oman, in December 2016...

Shazia Khan, Inam D Khan
Objectives: The Hajj , an annual mass gathering of Muslim pilgrims, is known for its high morbidity and mortality rates. However, pregnant women sometimes participate in this pilgrimage, despite guidelines that discourage such an undertaking due to potential fetomaternal complications. This study aimed to evaluate fetomaternal outcomes among pregnant Indian Hajj pilgrims. Methods: This prospective cross-sectional study was conducted at two Indian Hajj Medical Mission (IHMM)-affiliated secondary care hospitals in Saudi Arabia during the Hajj periods of August-October 2015 and 2016 and July-September 2017...

Objectives: This study aimed to assess potential associations between self-reported symptoms of laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) and voice disorders among two undiagnosed cohorts in Saudi Arabia. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted from February to April 2017 in Khobar, Saudi Arabia. Validated Arabic versions of the Reflux Symptom Index (RSI) and 10-item Voice Handicap Index (VHI-10) were distributed to 400 teachers at 13 schools and 300 members of the general population attending an ear, nose and throat clinic in Khobar...

Objectives: This study aimed to explore the attitudes of Omani nurses towards evidence-based practice (EBP) and their perceptions of the barriers to and facilitators of EBP implementation in Oman. In addition, the attitudes and perceptions of nurse leaders and staff nurses were compared. Methods: This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted between August and October 2016 in three suburban governmental hospitals in Northern Oman. A demographic questionnaire and two EBP instruments were used to collect data from 282 registered Omani nurses, including the Evidence-Based Nursing Attitude Questionnaire and the Developing Evidence-Based Practice Questionnaire...

Objectives: Countries in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) have some of the highest prevalence rates of diabetes mellitus (DM) in the world; however, DM-related research activity in this region is limited. This study aimed to examine trends in published diabetic foot disease (DFD) research undertaken in GCC countries. Methods: This bibliometric study was conducted in December 2016. Standardised criteria were used to search the MEDLINE® database (National Library of Medicine, Bethesda, Maryland, USA) for DFD-related publications authored by GCC researchers between January 1990 and December 2015...
