Title : A rare case of temporal bone cancer : ‘Doctor please keep my ear’
by Dr Norazila Abdul Rahim, Dr Carren Teh Sui Lin, Dr Fadzilah Ismail,
Abstract : A 65-year-old Chinese lady presented to us with a 2-month history of progressive swelling in her right ear. It was a painless swelling associated with itchiness with occasional mucoid discharge. The initial diagnosis was right aural polyp which later biopsy was taken and histopathological examination revealed moderately differentiated squamous cell carcinoma of the right external ear canal. HRCT temporal bone was reported as lobulated soft tissue mass at the right external ear canal with preauricular nodes and pressure erosion of the bony EAC. The patient underwent radical surgery followed by a referral to the oncology team for further management.

Abstract : We present a case of an 80-year-old Malay lady with underlying diabetes and hypertension who presented with right-sided facial swelling at the angle of the mandible for about 3 years duration. Initially the swelling was small and painless however currently had been associated with pain and progressively increase in size. The patient also noted drooping of the right lower lip. However, patient denies dysphagia or odynophagia and association with weight loss or appetite. On examination, revealed right sided facial nerve palsy with well-defined mass at the angle of mandible. No neck nodes palpable and other ENT examinations were unremarkable. FNAC was reported as atypical cells seen suspicious of malignancy. CT scan of head and neck was reported as parotid malignancy with likelihood of facial nerve involvement. The patient was subjected for radical right total parotidectomy and selective neck dissection with pectoralis major for tissue reconstruction.

Title : The Impact of Oral versus Intraperitoneal Metformin on Interleukin-17 Levels of Pristane Induced Female BALB/c Mice
by Stevent Sumantri, Mochammad Hatta, Rosdiana Natzir, Haerani Rasyid, Iris Rengganis, Andi Fachruddin Benyamin, Muhammad Nasrum Massi, Andi Asadul Islam, Ilhamjaya Patellongi, Gatot Lawrence, Muhammad Reza Primaguna,
Abstract : Metformin recently has been known to be able to regulate the AMPK/mTOR pathway and be able to regulate several autoimmune, inflammation, malignant and aging related conditions. This study aims to evaluate the effect of intraperitoneal versus oral metformin on IL-17 levels on a pristane induce female BALB/c mice. Thirty-one female BALB/c mice, aged 6 weeks and weighted approximately 25 grams, induced with 0.5 ml of pristane (2,6,10,14 tetramethylpentadecane, TMPD) intraperitoneally. After 120 days, treatment group given normal saline 100 mcl, oral metformin 100mg/kgBW, or intraperitoneal metformin 100mg/kgBW. After 60 days of treatment, all treatment groups were sacrificed, and kidney specimens prepared and stained using H&E. Interleukin-17 level was measured using ELISA. Results - Post induction with intraperitoneal pristane, there was a difference in IL-17 level between normal control and SLE model groups (52.33 vs. 64.20 pg/mL; mean difference 11.87 pg/mL; 95% CI 8.93 – 14.81 pg/mL; p<0.001). Comparison between normal saline control with oral metformin group resulted in IL-17 levels of 64.62 vs. 60.30 pg/mL (mean difference 4.31 pg/mL; 95% CI 0.83-7.79; p=0.021). Comparison between normal saline control with intraperitoneal metformin group resulted in IL-17 levels of 64.62 vs. 55.04 pg/mL (mean difference 9.57 pg/mL; 95% CI 4.17-14.97 pg/mL; p=0.004). Metformin is a potential new therapy to reduce the levels of IL-17 in SLE and in turn, inhibits the development of glomerulonephritis. Intraperitoneal metformin, or intravenous in human, could provide a novel route of administration to improve the effect of metformin on lupus patients.

Abstract : Functional use of the hand is pertinent to many areas of occupational performance in activities of daily living. The hands are used to complete a wide range of tasks such as dressing, bathing, eating, self-care, toileting, cooking, driving work, leisure activities and play. Hand function plays a major role in the performance of the activity of daily living. The purpose of the study is to improve the hand function of hemiplegic stroke patients. This study was aimed to compare the effects of Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy and functional task-oriented training to improve the hand function in hemiplegic stroke patients. A comparative study was done for 30 hemiplegic patients who were picked using a convenient sampling method from Isari Mission Hospital, Thalambur were chosen based on inclusion criteria and Exclusion Criteria They were then divided into two groups Group A – Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy. Group B – Functional Task-Oriented Training and followed up for 12 weeks. The pre-test and post-test values were assessed for Handheld dynamometer and Pinch gauge. The paired t-test revealed that there was a significant increase in hand function in GROUP A (constraint-induced movement therapy) when compared to GROUP B (functional task-oriented training). 12 weeks of treatment in improving hand function in hemiplegic stroke patients. The conclusion of the study is that the palmar pinch, lateral pinch, power grip shows significant improvement in hand function by using constraint-induced movement therapy (Group A) than functional task-related training (Group B) in hemiplegic stroke patient.

Title : Occlusal Features of Deciduous Dentition in An Iraqi Sample
by Suha Ali Abdul Ameer, Nadia Basim Al-Ansari, Mohammed Nahidh,
Abstract : To determine the occlusal characteristics of deciduous dentition in a sample of Iraqi preschool children from Baghdad city. A cross-sectional study was conducted on 313 children aged 3–5 years, enrolled in public and private kindergartens in Baghdad city. Parents and school prime approval was attained for children's participation. The clinical examination was performed under natural daylight by well-trained previously calibrated orthodontist to record the characteristics of the primary dentition. Data analysis was performed using Pearson's Chi-square test and the findings showed high prevalence of normal occlusion with no statistical gender and age difference.
