Dream recall and content vs the menstrual cycle: a cross-sectional study

Ilias Ioannis , Ekonomou Nikolas Tiberius , Lekkou Anastasia , Koukkou Eftychia

Introduction-Aim: Manifest dream content is rarely studied in dream research. Conflicting results have been presented regarding dream recall and affect vis-à-vis the menstrual cycle. Progestagens may improve dream recall. Thus, we aimed to assess dream recall/affect vis-à-vis the menstrual cycle in a large sample of women.Subjects-methods: We studied 779 women (mean age +S.D.: 31+9 years). The subjects were give...

Virili Camilla , Cellini Miriam , Santaguida Maria Giulia , Brusca Nunzia , Stramazzo Ilaria , Gargano Lucilla , Centanni Marco

Repeated pregnancy loss (RPL), defined as two or more spontaneous abortions, may be associated with autoimmune thyroiditis (AT), either isolated or associated with polyautoimmune disorders (PD), which include antiphospholipid syndrome. An increased occurrence of RPL has been reported in patients with isolated AT but very few data are available on the influence of concurrent auto-aggressive disorders on RPL and this represented the aim of our study. A cohort of 1765 consecutive...

Introduction: Turner Syndrome is a chromosomal disorder that is characterized by short stature and gonadal dysgenesis, affecting 1 in 2500 female live births. It is associated with a wide variety of conditions that could lead to significant morbidity and mortality if not followed up and managed appropriately. A multidisciplinary approach is important in the management of these patients. This audit aims to review the current practice of a specialist Turners Syndrome clinic in a...

Vaiciuliene Egle , Kriksciuniene Ruta , Lasaite Lina , Zilaitiene Birute , Verkauskiene Rasa

Introduction: Turner syndrome (TS) is associated with specific physical features, as well as a particular neuropsychological profile and social and behavioral features. It is common practice in the case of TS to treat short stature with growth hormone preparations and to induce puberty with estrogens at an age as close to normal puberty as possible. Nevertheless results of some studies show that despite the treatment, some women with TS still experience psychosocial problems, ...

Introduction: Liver involvement is frequent in Turner syndrome (TS) with a reported prevalence of abnormal liver function tests (LFTs) ranging 20–80%. Marked architectural changes and cirrhosis may be found in TS-women, associated with an increased incidence and risk of mortality.Recent studies and guidelines recommended:– monitoring annually all LFTs (International TS-Guidelines)– to improve d...

Cardiac evaluation in turner syndrome: echocardiography versus cardiac magnetic resonance

Calanchini Matilde , Orchard Elizabeth , Myerson Saul , McMillan Fiona , Bradley-Watson Jason , Fabbri Andrea , Turner Helen E

Introduction: Women with turner syndrome (TS) have an increased risk of aortic dissection at young age. Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) and aortic dilatation, both associated with TS, are risk factors. Preliminary studies suggested that cardiac MR (CMR) perfoms better than transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) for evaluating BAV and aortic dilatation, probably related to the frequent chest abnormalities in TS.Aim: To evaluate the ability and comparability of ...
