(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

A visual guide to understand different types of strokeIschemic Stroke: The most common type of stroke is known as an ischemic stroke. Nearly nine out of 10 strokes fall into this category. The culprit is a blood clot that obstructs a blood vessel inside the brain. The clot may develop on the spot or travel through the blood from elsewhere in the body.Hemorrhagic Stroke: Hemorrhagic strokes are less common but far more likely to be fatal. They occur when a weakened blood vessel in the brain bursts. The result is bleeding inside the brain that can be difficult to stop.Source and more information: http://bit.ly/1wczCSm

This patient presented on the third pre-eruptive day with “Koplik spots” indicative of the beginning onset of measles.
In the prodromal or beginning stages, one of the signs of the onset of measles is the eruption of “Koplik spots” on the mucosa of the cheeks and tongue, which appear as irregularly-shaped, bright red spots often with a bluish-white central dot.

REVERSE-NAMASKAR: A NEW SIGN IN EHLERS-DANLOS SYNDROME: A FAMILY PEDIGREE STUDY OF FOUR GENERATIONS
Abstract: Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is a rare group of inheritable connective tissue disorder of defective collagen. Skin, joints and blood vessels are most commonly affected. Clinical signs such as Gorlin sign and Metenier sign have been described in this syndrome. This study reports another new clinical sign called 'Reverse-Namaskar' sign as an important clinical finding in EDS, based on the family pedigree study of the proband.

homo-medicus:

Specimens of urine and specimens from the vagina were cultured and grew Staphylococcus aureus. The patient developed desquamation of her hands. A diagnosis of staphylococcal toxic shock syndrome was made. Desquamation is characteristic of staphylococcal toxic shock syndrome, typically occurring 1 to 2 weeks after the onset of illness and typically involving the palms and soles. Staphylococcal toxic shock syndrome is associated with a wide variety of clinical settings, such as menstruation, postpartum and postsurgical states, and barrier contraceptive use. With supportive care and the administration of floxacillin, the patient recovered completely.
