Münchausen Syndrome by Proxy (MSBP) is a psychiatric disorder characterised by the adoption of bizarre behavioural-patterns by caregivers in which diseases or disorders are fabricated in individuals, usually children, for purposes which span feelings of superiority derived from deceit of persons deemed superior to the caregiver, or attention seeking. The patient under discussion was a 6 year old male brought to the hospital by his mother with complaints of repetitive and unceasing passing of stones per urethra...

Lyme disease transmission to humans by Ixodes ticks is thought to require at least 36-48 h of tick attachment. We describe 3 cases in which transmission of Borrelia burgdorferi, the spirochetal agent of Lyme disease, appears to have occurred in less than 24 h based on the degree of tick engorgement, clinical signs of acute infection, and immunologic evidence of acute Lyme disease. Health care providers and individuals exposed to ticks should be aware that transmission of Lyme disease may occur more rapidly than animal models suggest...

OBJECTIVE: To familiarize family physicians with cognitive and behavioural treatments for insomnia. DATA SOURCES: MEDLINE was searched from 1983 to 1995 and Psychlit from 1974 to 1995 using the key words "behaviour therapy," "cognitive therapy," "phototherapy," and "insomnia." STUDY SELECTION: We chose randomized trials and meta-analyses on the treatment of insomnia. Information was extracted on time-lag before sleep, frequency and duration of wakeful periods during the night, consumption of hynotics, and subjects' own assessment of their sleep before and after treatment...

BACKGROUND: During standard hemodialysis, amino acid losses are substantial, amounting to 6 to 9 g per treatment. When these nutritional supplements are infused during dialysis, losses are increased, but a net positive balance can be achieved if the infusion rate is high enough. High-flux dialyzers, used with increasing frequency in modern dialysis centers because of their more permeable synthetic membranes, should cause further amino acid losses; however, the increase has not been measured, and the effect on plasma levels has not been examined...

Subhypnotic doses of thiopentone are considered to possess antianalgesic or hyperalgesic properties. In this study, we have tested the hypothesis that the coincidence of sedation and hyperalgesia is a property of both barbiturate and non-barbiturate anaesthetic agents. In a randomized, prospective, blinded study, the effects of slow (20 min) iv infusions of thiopentone, pentobarbitone, methohexitone or propofol on nociceptive threshold were measured in rats by tail pressure analgesimetry and compared with saline-infused control animals...

Nocturnal lagophthalmos producing symptoms of corneal exposure is not uncommon. We diagnosed 40 patients with the condition over a six-month period. In 12 (30%), alcohol intoxication preceded the symptoms. Other factors included the use of hynotics, cosmetic blepharoplasty, botulinum toxin injection for blepharospasm, facial palsy, dysthyroid eye disease and cicatrising skin disease of the lids. In the largest group (17 patients, 42%), no cause could be found, but five of these had either first-degree relatives who slept with their eyes open, or had been observed with nocturnal lagophthalmos...

In an attempt to commit suicide, a 32-year-old women swallowed a vast amount of psychiatric drugs, i.e. tranquilizers, amphetamines, hynotic and antidepressant agents. By intensive care, using high doses of catecholamines and appropriate antidota, satisfactory circulation and oxygenation could be maintained. 3 days after admission a peritonitis became apparent. A 50 cm long section of the distal ileum was found to be completely necrotic and had to be resected. However, circulation of the correspondent mesenterium was not disturbed at all...

S-Adenosylhomocysteine (SAH) (0.1 to 30 mg/kg/i.p.) increased 3H-norepinephrine synthesis from 3H-tyrosine in the rat brain stem and mid brain, but did not alter its tissular level. It decreased both the serotonin level and the formation of 3H-serotonin from 3H-tryptophan and increased the formation of 3H-5hydroxyindolacetic acid. Its effects began 1 hr after administration and was still present 6 hr later. It did not alter dopamine metabolism. A correlation between the hynotic effect of SAH and the modification of the metabolism of cerebral monoamines was pointed out...

Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine, is described in Atharva Veda and in subsequent treatises by Charak, Susrut, and Vagbhatt, containing the details of etiology, symptoms, diagnosis, and therapy of afflictions in humans and animals. The science of mental disorders (Bhoot-Vidya) describes extensively conditions from mild anger and greed to severe psychoses. This paper presents a synoptic overview comparing the clinical conditions described in Ayurveda with clinical conditions described in the Internationl Classification of Diseases...

The present two-phase study was designed to determine the optimum hynotic dose of triazolam and to assess any evidence of acute tolerance. Subjective and objective data were used to assess hypnotic efficacy. In the dose-titration phase, the dose of triazolam was increased in 0-5 mg increments to the highest level tolerated by each individual patient. Maximum tolerable doses ranged between 0-5 and 3-0 mg; however, all subjects experienced maximum therapeutic effect at 1-5 mg triazolam. During the 4-night acute tolerance portion of the study no clear evidence of tolerance was found...
