Scurvy, a condition caused by vitamin C deficiency, is characterized by a syndrome of multisystem disorder due to defective collagen production and antioxidative function. This condition is infrequent in this modern era; thus, it is often not within the list of differential diagnoses. The broad clinical picture is generally overlooked as other systemic illnesses, resulting in an extensive investigation that delays the diagnosis. Herein, we report a case of an 8-year-old boy with underlying autism spectrum disorder who presented with lower limb pain and other constitutional symptoms...

INTRODUCTION: Tuberculosis (TB) contacts in Malaysia undergo follow-up screening to reduce their risk of active or latent TB. However, adherence to this screening is low.

METHODS: Participants were TB contacts due for their 2nd contact screening (including those who attended their first contact screening at Petra Jaya Health Clinic from November 2018 to March 2019), were aged at least 18 years and were able to understand English or Malay...

INTRODUCTION: Adult caregivers (ACGs) are largely responsible for caring for their family members, which can increase their stress levels. This increased stress makes them more susceptible to chronic illnesses. The adoption of health-promoting behaviours, particularly through mindfulness-based behavioural education (MBBE), can significantly impact the daily habits of ACGs. However, there is limited research on this topic in the context of Thailand. Thus, this study aimed to explore the perceptions and experiences of ACGs receiving MBBE, focusing on physical, mental, social and other influential factors...

Benign renal lesions are relatively rare. Angiomyolipoma (AML) is the most commonly encountered benign renal lesion. One of the complications of AML is rupture, which results in retroperitoneal haemorrhage with a mortality rate of up to 20%. Pregnancy poses a major risk for the rupture of AML. This is attributed to its hormonal effect, which causes the tumour to grow rapidly during pregnancy. The possibility of AML rupture should be considered when encountering pregnant patients with hypovolemic shock but with normal initial obstetric ultrasound findings...

INTRODUCTION: Vaccine hesitancy was declared as one of the ten threats to global public health by the World Health Organization in 2019. It undermines the effort towards eradication of vaccine-preventable diseases. Healthcare providers, who are directly involved in vaccination services and vaccine advocacies, are important in combating vaccine hesitancy. Studies have shown that vaccine refusers have various reasons for refusal including distrust towards healthcare providers. Hence, it is important to understand healthcare providers' perspectives...

Buccal lichenoid lesions (BLLs) are characterised by a unique, linear whitish striation in the buccal region and can be accompanied by ulcers, plaques, erythemas, atrophies and blisters. They are distinguished from oral lichen planus (OLP) by the association of the administration of a drug or contact with a metal. Herein, we present the case of a 42-year-old woman with underlying hypertension with amlodipine-induced BLLs. She complained of a 1-month history of right buccal whitish streaks and oral ulcers 2 months after taking amlodipine...
