    Distal renal tubular acidosis is a syndrome of abnormal urine acidification and is characterized by hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis, hypokalemia, hypercalciurea, nephrocalcinosis and nephrolithiasis. Despite the presence of persistent hypokalemia, acute muscular paralysis is rarely encountered...

    Mutations in the valosin-containing protein (VCP, p97) gene on chromosome 9p13–p12 cause a late-onset form of autosomal dominant inclusion body myopathy associated with Paget disease of the bone and frontotemporal dementia (IBMPFD). We report on the pathological consequences of three...

    The perception of the Z-disc in striated muscle has undergone significant changes in the past decade. Traditionally, the Z-disc has been viewed as a passive constituent of the sarcomere, which is important only for the cross-linking of thin filaments and transmission of force generated by the...

    The sliding filament theory of contraction that was developed for striated muscle is generally believed to be also applicable to smooth muscle. However, the well-organized myofilament lattice (i.e., the sarcomeric structure) found in striated muscle has never been clearly delineated in smooth...

    Primary pyomyositis is a suppurative infection of striated muscle, the diagnosis of which is overlooked or delayed due to its rarity and vague clinical presentation. Though rare in the United States and temperate zones, pyomyositis is more frequently reported from tropical countries. The exact...

    The authors describe a rare case of orbital rhabdomyoma in a 3-year-old girl who presented with progressive proptosis of the left eye. An axial computed tomographic scan of the left orbit demonstrated an irregular retrobulbar mass. The tumor was resected locally from the lateral wall of the...

    Structural abnormalities in striated muscle have been observed in numerous transcription factor gain- and loss-of-function phenotypes in animal and cell culture model systems, indicating that transcription is important in regulating the cytoarchitecture. While most characterized...

    A critical mechanism to maintain urinary continence in women and men is the striated muscle sphincter (rhabdosphincter) that forms a ring around the mid urethra. Cellular therapy and the use of stem cells transplanted into the site of the rhabdosphincter in a setting of stress urinary...

    We report a case of embryonal orbital rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) in a five year old boy. Immuno-histochemistry of incisional specimen confirmed diagnosis. Eight cycles of chemotherapy along with radiotherapy resulted in over 50% reduction in size of the mass. However, increase in size was noted...
