About this Journal
Asploro Journal of Biomedical and Clinical Case Reports is an open access, peer-reviewed journal which mainly aims to directly improve global health outcomes and share clinical knowledge using case reports to convey important best practice messages. Each case report published in this journal adds valuable new information to medical knowledge.
Case Reports are the first piece of research writing in the health field and represent the most basic type of study design. They make a contribution to health knowledge and have educational value or highlight the need for a change in clinical practice…..

Abstracting and Indexing
Upper urinary tract abnormalities are relatively common and may be diagnosed before or at birth. Some cases will be seen during complications that most often are obstructive. We herein report one case of complete right ureter duplication revealed by sepsis. The case involved one little girl aged 3 years, referred from a peripheral health center for prolonged fever. Physical examination found out a right flank mass connecting with the lumbar spine, renal ballottement, and pain due to a blow to the right flank. Further explorations helped establish the diagnosis of complete duplication of the right ureter with the destruction of the upper renal pelvis. Little girl benefitted from a dual antibiotic therapy combined with partial nephrectomy of the right kidney upper pole. Infectious are serious complications in upper urinary tract obstructions resulting in kidney destruction; therefore, early diagnosis is required.
The QT interval represents the duration of ventricular depolarization and repolarization. It is measured from the beginning of the QRS complex to the end of the T wave. Prolongation of the QT interval may be congenital or acquired. This increases the risk of polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (i.e torsades de pointes) and cardiac arrest. To increase the awareness of this life-threatening phenomenon I outline an illustrative case in which acquired prolongation of the QT interval due to electrolyte derangement and administration of ciprofloxacin resulted in cardiac arrest due to torsade de pointes. Management of a patient with a long QT syndrome includes Immediate cessation of drugs that prolong the QT interval; cardiac monitoring, serial 12 lead ECGs and transthoracic echocardiography; measurement of serum electrolytes; intravenous potassium replacement; intravenous magnesium replacement; beta-blockade. Causes of acquired prolongation of the QT interval are common in critically ill patients. It is important to recognize this and consider screening with 12 lead ECG to reduce the risk of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias.
Pentalogy of Fallot is a congenital cardiac defect comprising infundibular stenosis of the pulmonary artery, overriding aorta, ventricular septal defect, right ventricular hypertrophy and atrial septal defect. It is one of the most common cyanotic congenital heart defects with detrimental consequences if left untreated. We present the case of a 25-year-old female artisan and stroke survivor who was admitted with episodes of recurrent dizziness. She was diagnosed with the pentalogy of Fallot after echocardiography and awaiting cardiac repair surgery.
Objective: The present study aimed to evaluate the vitamin D blood dosage during the three gestational trimesters, while identifying the frequency of pregnant women in the normal range, the variance in the three periods and evaluate the association between vitamin D and the obstetric complications such as preeclampsia, diabetes, and weight of the newborn.
Methods: This is a longitudinal study with pregnant and non-pregnant women, from which there was collected data of anamneses, physical exam, obstetric info, as well as milk consumption habits, sunscreen and sun exposure, and also the vitamin D blood dosage.
Results: There were 91 Pregnant Women studied, from whom the comparison between the vitamin D dosages identified the absence of gestation as a protective factor for VDD; the tendency for lower levels of supplementations when the workplace is in an external environment; the association between vitamin D and pre-eclampsia in the first trimester.
Conclusion: The most relevant consequences from VDD were pre-eclampsia in the first trimester, the absence of gestation as a protective factor for VDD, and the need to consider the workplace before supplementation.
All Age Management Medicine practitioners should read carefully James Larrick and Andrew Mendelsohn’s article entitled Applied Healthspan Engineering. The best way to explain briefly what AHE is all about is to include here the abstract of the referred article, published in 2010.
