BACKGROUND. Multiple glomus tumors are uncommon cutaneous neoplasms. Therapeutic destructive alternatives include excision, argon or CO2 laser treatment, and sclerotherapy with sodium tetradecyl sulphate. OBJECTIVE. A case report is presented using a previously unreported technique of therapy, specifically hypertonic saline. METHODS. 23.4% NaCl was injected intraluminally in four sessions over a 6-month period. CONCLUSION. Serial hypertonic saline injections should be added to the list of effective treatment alternatives for multiple glomus tumors.

    Rationale: Addictive drugs are commonly delivered in the organism by means of intravenous (i.v.) injections. Since saline mimics the blood environment by basic ionic properties and pH, it is generally assumed that it should not have any physiological effects, serving as a control for the effects...

    The aim of this present study is to test the hypothesis that nociceptive stimulation of latent myofascial trigger points (MTrPs) increases the occurrence of local muscle cramps. Nociceptive muscle stimulation was obtained by a bolus injection of glutamate (0.1 ml, 0.5 M) into a latent MTrP and a...

    Attention is often regarded as a mechanism by which attended objects become perceptually more salient, akin to increasing their contrast. We demonstrate that attention is better described as a mechanism by which task relevant information impacts on ongoing processing, while excluding task...
