Stroke

Stroke — is a heavy and very dangerous stroke, which eventually causes the death of brain tissue due to lack of adequate nutrition in the brain, resulting in damaged brain and is blockage or rupture of the brain.

Stroke — is a heavy and very dangerous stroke, which eventually causes the death of brain tissue due to lack of adequate nutrition in the brain, resulting in damaged brain and is blockage or rupture of the brain.

Causes of stroke

The most common cause of stroke — cerebral thrombosis, occlusion of blood clot (thrombus) of arteries supplying the brain. There is a clot (plaque) mostly in atherosclerosis.

Another cause of stroke — bleeding in the brain, internal bleeding in the brain. Artery of the brain affected are can rupture (break) and flood the blood surrounding the brain tissue. Cells were fed by the artery, are not able to receive blood and oxygen.

Hemorrhage in the brain is more likely to occur when the patient experiences both atherosclerosis and high blood pressure.

In other words, the cause of stroke is damage to nerve cells in the brain and controls all functions of the human body. And this kind of damage, and more precisely, the death of nerve cells occur due to acute circulatory disorders in a particular part of the brain when it is highly active cells suddenly cease to be necessary and sufficient for them of blood. As a result, blood is not flowing through the vessels, brain cells die, the commands to the muscles is not received, which ultimately leads to

types of stroke

There are two types of stroke: hemorrhagic stroke (vessel rupture and hemorrhage) and ischemic stroke (blockage of the vessel). And most of all as a hemorrhagic stroke and ischemic stroke, occur against a background of hypertension, heart disease (atrial fibrillation, vices, paroxysmal tachycardia), heart failure, cerebral arteriosclerosis.

Facial nerve neuritis

Facial nerve neuritis — an inflammation of the facial nerve, which is accompanied by paresis (weakening of voluntary movements), facial muscles of the face. This is a fairly common condition that occurs in people of both sexes at any age. The most common cause of neuritis of the facial nerve is infection.

This is a fairly common condition that occurs in people of both sexes at any age. The most common cause of neuritis of the facial nerve is infection.

The disease can be caused by hypothermia or injury. Neuritis sometimes occurs as a complication of otitis media. In some cases, neuritis caused by varicella-zoster virus, like shingles, and is accompanied by a rash. Often the cause of neuritis of the facial nerve is unknown. In this case we speak of idiopathic neuritis of the facial nerve, the so-called Bell’s palsy.

Most are one-sided defeat of the facial nerve. Early on in the ear may have mild to moderate pain and paresthesias (numbness, tingling, pins and needles). Usually pain occurs simultaneously with paresis or 1-2 days prior to its development.

Facial nerve is involved in various functions of the body. First of all, it provides traffic mimic muscles. Thanks to him, we can smile wrinkle his brow, etc. With neuritis of the facial nerve is an asymmetry of the face. One side of the face like a mask. If the nerve is affected immediately after the release of the brain, in addition there are dry eyes, taste disturbance on the front of the tongue and hyperacusis (increased perception of the unpleasant sounds). But more often suffer terminal branches of the facial nerve, which are close to the skin, resulting in paresis of facial muscles and tearing.

Most patients experience a full recovery in the event of timely treatment. The earlier visit to a doctor, the more favorable prognosis. The average duration of treatment is 3-4 weeks. If the nerve damage was shallow (wounded nerve sheath), its function can be restored within 3-6 weeks. In more severe cases (damaged nerve body process), this process can take up to 3-6 months. In 10% of patients neuritis of the facial nerve recurs. A small number of patients may result in permanent facial muscle weakness or

Neuritis

Pathography
Neuritis (neuropathy) — an inflammatory disease of the peripheral nerves, which are identified along with the pain symptoms of so-called loss, ie, loss of or decrease in sensitivity, as well as paralysis and paresis.
Varieties of neuritis
Several distinct types of neuritis, which differ for reasons of (alcoholic neuritis, diabetic neuritis), as well as the number and type of damage to the nerves (local neuritis, polyneuritis, plexitis, sciatica)
The causes of neuritis
Local neuritis, which affected only one nerve, can be caused injury, local infection, arthritis or tumor. The causes of multiple neuritis (polyneuritis) serve a variety of external and internal factors. The external factors include alcoholism, lead poisoning, arsenic, carbon monoxide (carbon monoxide), ether, sulfur, phosphorus, mercury, antimony, bismuth, and other substances. The internal — pregnancy, diabetes, rheumatism, gout, porphyria, vitamin deficiency, infectious diseases (especially diphtheria, streptococcal infections and typhoid fever), as well as hereditary degenerative diseases.

Brain abscess

Pathography
Brain abscess — an encapsulated collection of pus in the brain, may occur by contact spread of infection (purulent otitis, osteomyelitis, mastoiditis, sinusitis), hematogenous metastasis from a distant source (lung, oral cavity, skin, bones, colon, heart) or as a direct result of infection (in traumatic brain injury or neurosurgical intervention). In children, 60% of brain abscesses associated with congenital heart defects, accompanied by discharge of blood from right to left.
Causes of brain abscess
The cause of brain abscess can be injured or damage the skull, which can develop as a result of infection. Also numerous cases of brain abscess occurs when the brain tissue of staphylococci, streptococci and other microorganisms. Another of the causes of an abscess — ulcers that occur in purulent otitis, rhinitis, chronic sinusitis. About half of all cases of brain abscess is due to complications of otitis media. More rarely cause abscess could be asthma or pneumonia.
Symptoms of brain abscess
For brain abscess is characterized by triad of symptoms, including headache, fever, focal neurologic symptoms (eg, hemiparesis, aphasia or hemianopsia). However, in full view of the triad does not occur in all patients. Thus, an increase in body temperature observed in only half of cases, as a rule, before the formation of the abscess capsule. After the formation of the capsule (usually by the end of week 2) general infectious symptoms diminish. Less than half of the patients the meningeal symptoms, seizures, depression of consciousness, revealed congestion of the optic nerves.
Diagnosis of brain abscess
Diagnosis is based primarily on information about the presence of purulent focus in the body, in the immediate vicinity of the brain structures. The localization of the abscess is defined MRI and CT of the brain. Displacement of the midline structures of the brain can be detected using ehoentsefaloskopii. Lumbar puncture for suspected brain abscess is contraindicated. To identify the source of infection is carried out radiography of the skull and chest, echocardiography, ultrasound of the abdomen, blood cultures.
Treatment of brain abscess
All brain abscesses should only be surgically with mandatory assignment of broad spectrum antibiotics. Usually use a combination of third-generation cephalosporin (cefotaxime or ceftriaxone) with the antibiotic acting on staphylococci (eg, vancomycin or oksitsillinom) and an antibacterial agent acting on the anaerobic bacteria (metronidazole). In the early stages of abscess or small (up to 3 cm), multiple or inaccessible to surgery abscesses (eg, in the brain stem), antibiotic treatment may be the only treatment option.

Causes of stroke

The most common cause of stroke — cerebral thrombosis, occlusion of blood clot (thrombus) of arteries supplying the brain. There is a clot (plaque) mostly in atherosclerosis.

Another cause of stroke — bleeding in the brain, internal bleeding in the brain. Artery of the brain affected are can rupture (break) and flood the blood surrounding the brain tissue. Cells were fed by the artery, are not able to receive blood and oxygen.

As a result, blood is not flowing through the vessels, brain cells die, the commands to the muscles is not received, which ultimately leads to paralysis, visual disturbances, speech and other neurological disorders.

types of stroke

There are two types of stroke: hemorrhagic stroke (vessel rupture and hemorrhage) and ischemic stroke (blockage of the vessel). And most of all as a hemorrhagic stroke and ischemic stroke, occur against a background of hypertension, heart disease (atrial fibrillation, vices, paroxysmal tachycardia), heart failure, cerebral arteriosclerosis.

symptoms of a stroke
Hemorrhagic stroke, ischemic stroke is different from that vessel rupture occurs with high blood pressure as well as the wall of an artery with atherosclerosis irregularly thinned. With this stroke, the blood under high pressure pushes the brain tissue and fills the cavity, so there is a blood tumor, or intracerebral hematoma.
Also in hemorrhagic stroke bleeding occurs at break saccular formation on the vessel wall, which is called an aneurysm, bleeding is often the case in the shell of the brain called the subarachnoid (SAH). There is more bleeding and 40. Suddenly a feeling of blow to the head (sometimes likened to a dagger blow to the head), severe headache (the man screams in pain and then lost consciousness) may be convulsions, but consciousness is usually restored. The patient is drowsy, lethargic, moaning in pain, holding his hands behind his head, may be nausea or vomiting. But, unlike a stroke with hemorrhage and cerebral hematoma formation, such a patient has no paralysis.
See also the slide show: «The symptoms and treatment of stroke,»
Ischemic stroke is more insidious than hemorrhagic, because the symptoms of ischemic stroke are unclear, there is increasing gradually, or «flicker».
In HS, the hemisphere of the brain to form the intracerebral hematoma — a violent manifestations: against a hypertensive crisis occurs, or significantly increased headache, often on one side of the head, then the patient loses consciousness, his face becomes bluish or red, his breathing raspy, often repeated vomiting. After some time with this stroke may develop seizure seizures dominated on one side of the body, the pupil on the side stroke expands. If the patient regains consciousness, then he is paralyzed limb, if the right, marked disturbances of speech (aphasia), if the left, then the patient has expressed mental problems (do not know how old he is, where he is, does not recognize loved ones, according to a fully healthy, etc.).
With such an ischemic stroke has always been stiff neck muscles: can not bend his head in front, so that his chin touched his chest (because of pronounced muscle tension neck) and a stiff leg muscles: it is impossible to raise a straight leg for a heel (as expressed by muscle tension in feet) — signs of meningeal irritation with blood, so called meningeal syndrome.
In hemorrhagic stroke in the brain stem patients do not live more than 2 days and died without regaining consciousness. With subarachnoid hemorrhage from an aneurysm stroke often happens after exercise: lifting weights, trying to break his stick over his knee, nervous stress, accompanied by a brief rise in blood pressure.
Transient ischemic attacks (TIA) is the most insidious. Depending on the side and place of brain damage occurs weakness in the hand or arm and leg on one side, often accompanied by disorders of speech — «porridge in the mouth,» or «verbal hash» (aphasia), sometimes develops blindness in half of the field of vision or complete. These effects disappear after a few minutes or less hours, but during the day can be repeated many times. Who had come to call the emergency doctor can already see a «healthy person», although 10-15 minutes ago he was unable to say a word or move his hand. At that time, relatives and peace, and the doctor did not really worried about it, the patient is at home, and in the morning wake up with a total aphasia and half paralyzed.
The presence of TIA — 100% indication for hospital by ambulance as a transient ischemic attack — is not accomplished a stroke, but a stroke, which sooner or later, and you must use this signal to remove the causes of stroke.
Recognition of acute ischemic difficult when there are gross paralysis, disorders of consciousness and speech difficult with transient disorders, but the tactic has to be one — hospitalization for an ambulance if the patient is very elderly and not in a coma.
First aid for stroke
In stroke most expensive are the first minutes and hours of the disease, as it is the time medical care may be the most effective.
First, the patient must be comfortable to lay on the bed and unbutton clothes difficulty breathing, give sufficient fresh air. Remove from the mouth dentures, vomit. Head, shoulders should lie on the pillow to avoid neck flexion and deterioration of blood flow through the vertebral arteries.
Patient with stroke transportable always lying down, unless it is a coma third stage. Patients rarely die directly from stroke to stroke often joined pneumonia and pressure sores, which requires constant care, turning from side to side, changing wet clothes, feeding, bowel cleansing, vibratory chest.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis — a chronic skin disease that is accompanied by the formation of raised red patches covered with silvery-white scales. Psoriasis suffers from 1 to 3 percent of the world population. The disease causes not only physical but also psychological discomfort. Psoriasis can lead to depression, low self-esteem, problems in social and professional life.

The disease causes not only physical but also psychological discomfort. Psoriasis can lead to depression, low self-esteem, problems in social and professional life.

In healthy skin cells are exfoliated once a month. The top layer of dead skin is replaced by new cells from the lower layer of the skin. But in people with psoriasis, this process is too fast. New cells migrate to the surface of the skin for a few days instead of several weeks. The skin thickens and becomes inflamed, forming a so-called psoriatic plaques.

It can be:

Atopic dermatitis (neurodermatitis)

Lichen

Seborrhea

Streptoderma

Eczema

Do not know the disease? Use simptomchekerom

Stains can be different sizes. Most often, they are located on the scalp, knees, elbows, lower back and buttocks. The plaques are accompanied by severe itching, especially if they are in the folds of the skin (for example, under the breast). Psoriasis can also hit the nails on the hands or feet. In 10-15 percent of cases, the disease causes inflammation of the joints — psoriatic arthritis.

Psoriasis usually appears in adulthood, although it can occur in children. People with an initially dry and sensitive skin more likely to develop the disease. The first time, psoriatic lesions often appear in place of the damaged skin — scuffs, scratches, scrapes. The disease is not contagious and is not spread by touching or sharing household items.

Cause of psoriasis is still unknown. Today, most scientists agree that it is an autoimmune disease. In the development of pathology is the role of genetic factors. One-third of patients have relatives who also suffer from the disease.

Psoriasis occurs in chronic with periods of exacerbation and remission. Over time, patients begin to notice that causes deterioration of the disease. It could be stress, cold and dry weather, alcohol, smoking, certain medications.

Warts

Warts — is a common benign tumors of the human skin caused by certain types of a virus transmitted by direct contact or through household items.

Warts — is a common benign tumors of the human skin caused by certain types of a virus transmitted by direct contact or through household items.

Warts are dense, dry, painful benign tumors, the size of a pinhead to the size of the 5-penny coins, rising above the surface of the skin, covered with grooves or horny papillae.

Causes of Warts

Warts are caused by a virus and can be transferred to other parts of the body and transmitted to others. Catch the virus can be anywhere, but for the occurrence of warts need 2 factors: the violation of the integrity of the skin (scratch, mosquito bites, burrs, etc.) and low immunity.

Warts develop slowly and can die without treatment. But if they do not disappear, and their number is increasing, they should be removed.

Symptoms of Warts

Warts — infectious benign skin, having a form of nodules or papillae. Among them distinguish common warts, flat warts and genital warts senile. Types of warts at the place of education: Genital warts (including genital warts on the lips), the warts on his head and face, as well as personal warts.

Common warts

Common warts — dense, dry, limited, painless, horny elevations with rough villous surface size from a pinhead to a pea, which may coalesce to form large plaques. Most often found on the hands.

It can be:

Keratoma

Molluscum contagiosum

Papilloma

Brown spots

Moles (nevi)

Plantar Warts

It is kind of common warts. Plantar warts appear in places pressure shoes, especially in heavily sweating. Very tight, horny, dirty-gray color plantar warts differ great soreness that prevents walking; resemble corn. Sometimes cause a temporary loss of earning capacity.

Treatment of plantar warts can be done only in a clinic.

Flat warts (or juvenile warts)

Flat, or youth, warts usually occur in children and young people. Take the form of round or irregular flat nodules, which are located on the back surface of the hands, as well as on the skin. The appearance of flat warts promotes skin irritation (often arise in the course of scratches, cuts, etc.).

Genital warts

This tiny pink nodules that merge to form a soft consistency papilliform sprawl on the ground at a foot. Often develop on the genitals, in the inguinal folds and mezhyagodichnoy with uncleanliness content of the skin, which can become infected by a sexual partner. For this reason they are often called venereal.

Senile warts, age keratomas

Senile warts or age keratomas, occur in the elderly, with a viral infection, they are not related. Instead, they are reminiscent of plaque gray, brown or black in color, covered with loose, soaked with sebum, horny masses. They are located primarily on the face, neck and torso.

As with warts may have similarities and some other tumors of the skin, sometimes with an unfavorable course, when a wart is necessary to consult a dermatologist.

There are also other forms of warts are the most unusual — such as warts, cauliflower-like, which are most often found on the neck and head of people, and very often suffer from such skin warts, which is located under the hair on his head.

Streptoderma

Streptoderma — an acute skin disease caused by Streptococcus (strep impetigo), causing the formation of pus in the skin of various lesions in the form of pink scaly round patches.

Streptoderma — an acute skin disease caused by Streptococcus (strep impetigo), causing the formation of pus in the skin of various lesions in the form of pink scaly round patches.

Reasons streptoderma

Streptococci are part of the pathogenic microflora inhabiting the surface of the skin. An opportunistic she called because it causes disease only under certain conditions: decreased immunity (after an acute illness, hypothermia, etc.) or the appearance of small wounds on the skin.

But you can get streptococcal and from another person, that is especially true in children’s groups when immunity in children is not yet fully formed.

The incubation period of the disease lasts about 7 days. However, due to varicose veins, diabetes, and long-term cooling of extremities, resulting in increased sensitivity of the skin to microbial agents, streptoderma can become chronic.

It can be:

Atopic dermatitis (neurodermatitis)

Impetigo

Lichen

Psoriasis

Seborrhea

Staphylococcus

Do not know the disease? Use simptomchekerom

Varieties streptoderma

superficial and deep

acute and chronic

Symptoms streptoderma

The main symptom streptoderma — pink spots prone to flaking, which are formed on the surface melkoplastinchatye scales.

Subjective symptoms the patient is usually not observed, but sometimes it can still disturb small itchy skin, dry skin, and possibly fever and swollen lymph nodes.

Spots formed with a skin disease, can be of different sizes of round shape, the diameter of which gradually reaches 3-4 cm Usually they are located on the face, at least — on the back, buttocks, legs. Stains left behind temporary depigmentation.

However, like any other infectious disease, streptoderma can give complications of the internal organs, especially frequently damaged heart muscle (myocarditis), and kidneys (glomerulonephritis). Local complications occur abscesses (ulcers, limited capsule) and phlegmon (ulcers, no delineated from the surrounding tissue).
