Abstract

Introduction: Infertility is a condition which is described by WHO as inability for having children after one year of relationship without birth control. this condition can be caused both from inside and outside the body. One of the major outside factors is exposure to chemical substances, which in this case nicotine substance that came from cigarettes. The CYP2A6 gene is a coding gene for the xenobiotic metabolic enzyme, in this case nicotine which can cause infertility in men. Mutations in this gene can lead to nicotine buildup, increasing nicotine effect thus increasing the risk of infertility in men. The aim of this study was to determine whether there were variations in the CYP2A6 gene in male infertile patients.Methods: The method used was the isolation of infertile and fertile sperm DNA samples (five samples each) which were then amplified at the target DNA (CYP2A6) by PCR method and then sequenced to see the nucleutide sequence.Result: The results of this study showed that there were variations in the CYP2A6 gene that occurred only in infertile patients, heterogeneous mutations in the 7788th(C-A), 8040th (C-T), 7661st (G­-C) nucleutide sequence of the CYP2A6 gene and SNP mutations in the 8250th(T>C), 8409th (T>G/C), and 8428th(C>T) nucleutide sequence of the CYP2A6 gene.Conclusion: The conclusion of this study is that there are CYP2A6 variations that found only in infertile male patients.

Abstract

ObjectiveA nail infection is a common case caused by fungal infection, thus can make any bacterial correlated infection in the nail can be under-diagnosed. However, Pseudomonas aeruginosa can cause nail infection known as green nail syndrome (chromonychia). Method  A 3 years old girl presented with greenish discoloration on the nail plate of the right toenail since previous a month. She came from well-educated family, but the water resource at their home was not good enough. The specimen of nail scraping was sent to the microbiology laboratory. The Gram from nail scraping didn’t show any significant result. After 24 hours, a greenish colony, non-lactose fermenter on the Mac Conkey and a dominant blue-green color colony on the blood sheep agar had grown.  The colonies are beta hemolytic, flat and spreading. They were also positive to oxidase and catalase. Result The Gram result from the colony was showed as basil negative Gram. Identification from Vitex 2® concluded as Pseudomonas aeruginosa that resistant to all penicillin derivate and 2nd generation of cephalosporin. However the isolate was still sensitive to ceftazidime, carbapenems, quinolones and amino-glycosides. The treatment was decided using topical fluoroquinolone nadifloxacin, and gave a significant result in a month Conclusion Green nail syndrome that is caused by P. aeruginosa infection could be treated by topical fluoroquinolone for 1-2 months

Abstract

Background: Asthma, eczema and allergic rhinitis are influenced by both genetic factor and environtment factors. Based on family history of allergy, allergic trace cards can identify the level of allergic risk in children. The relationship between family history of allergy and manifestation of allergic disease as a single allergy disease and allergic multimorbidity still need to be explored. The objective of this study was to identify the associations between family history of allergic disease and manifestation of allergic disease in school-age children.Methods: We conducted a cross sectional study on school age children with 6-13 years old at eight elementary schools in Yogyakarta. Family history of allergy was defined as reported asthma, eczema and allergic rhinitis in a parent or sibling and classified the level of allergic risk based on allergic trace cards. Subjects were questioned by standardized ISAAC questionnaire. The relationship between the two was analyzed by the Chi-squared analysis to assess the prevalence ratio (PR).Results: A total of 272 children with an average age of 8.4 years, allergic manifestations occurred more as multimorbidity (53%) with the highest incidence of RA+asthma (9%) compared with one allergic disease (47%) with the highest incidence of RA (11%). There was a significant relationship between family history of allergy and all manifestations of allergic disease with an increased risk of developing allergies by 3.3 (PR 3.3; 95% CI 2.3-4.8) and 2.8 times (PR 2.8; IK95% 1.8-4.3) in the moderate and high-risk score group. Asthma, RA and DA have a risk for coexistence with 2 other diseases of 2.5 (RP 2.5 IK95%; 1.9-3), 2.25 (PR 2.25 IK95%; 1.7 -3) and 1.9 times (PR 2.5 IK95%; 1.45-2.4).Conclusion: Family history of allergic disease is a risk factors for the development of allergic manifestation both a single allergic disease and multimobidity.

Abstract

Background: Incidence of anemia in pregnant women was 37.1%, proportion was similar between urban vs rural areas (36.4% vs 37.8%). According to 2007 RISKESDAS, iron deficiency accounted for most common type of anemia in pregnancy. Iron deficiency anemia in pregnancy has a negative impact both on the mother and the fetus. Serum ferritin is a parameter for iron deficiency. Objective of this study was to overlook serum ferritin levels in trimester 1pregnancy.Methods: The design was retrospective cohort. Samples obtained from first trimester pregnant women who performed a pregnancy check up at Hasanah Graha Afiah Hospital Depok in the period of April 2016 - July 2017. Data were presented in percentages for categorical data. Numerical data presented in medians and ranges for abnormal data distribution; and mean and standard intersections for normal data distribution. This study involved 64 samples that met the inclusion and exclusion criteria.Results: Median serum ferritin levels in this study were still in the normal range of 40.82 (6.97 - 172.66) μg / L. Twenty one subjects (69.1%) had normal serum ferritin level (≥30 μg/L) and 47 (30.9%) had low ferritin level.Conclusions: Median serum ferritin in this study was within normal range. Low level of serum ferritin found in 21 subjects, three among them also suffered from anemia.

Abstract

Central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) is a blinding event but not considered as a common emergency problem. Since awareness of the case is low, patients usually come to the ophthalmologist later than the golden period and havingthe worst prognosis. We report the case of patient with a central retinal artery occlusion that had visual improvement after emergency treatment.A 47-year-old woman with no comorbidities presented with symptoms of a sudden blurred vision, no pain or redness in the right eye (RE). Best-corrected visual acuity in the RE was 1/60. A relative afferent pupillary defect was observed in the RE. Ocular fundus examination of RE was suggestive of CRAO. Emergency treatment were performed, including rebreathing of expired CO2, ocular massage and ocular chamber paracentesis. One week later, the visual acuity was improved.This case highlights that fast and accurate response in acute management of CRAO should be conducted, especially within the golden hours which is less than 6 hours after the accident, to prevent permanent visual loss of thepatient.
