Aortic dissection can cause Takotsubo cardiomyopathy.
Rhabdomyolysis caused by peripheral T-cell lymphoma in skeletal muscle.
We report a rare case of rhabdomyolysis caused by peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) in skeletal muscle. A 62-year-old man was admitted with complaints of sudden muscle weakness. Laboratory abnormalities were identified including markedly elevated creatinine-phosphokinase, peaking at 62,640 IU/L and...
Variation in use of all types of computed tomography by emergency physicians.
We hypothesize that variation in all types of CT use exists between providers and their use in patients with common chief concerns.

Blood samples from each patient were analyzed for CBC, differential, and 5 candidate proteins. Biomarker values were evaluated using principal component, recursive partitioning...
