Melorheostosis is a rare but benign disorder characterized by asymmetric osteosclerotic dysplasia. Radiographic appearances are characteristic and described as "melting wax flowing down a candle." This disorder may involve more than one bone contiguously across the joints following a sclerotomal distribution. It is often asymptomatic but occasionally presents with pain and contractures. The authors report accidental detection of bilateral upper and lower limb melorheostosis in an elderly woman with the history of breast cancer and recent onset of low back pain, which was referred for a bone scintigram for suspected metastases. The images showed bilateral femoral and tibial melorheostosis, which was subsequently confirmed on plain radiograph and by clinical follow-up.
Of the 285 AXRs performed 59 were positive, 221 negative and five were indeterminate. The tic-tac sign was present in 93%, double condom sign in 73%, dense surrounding wrapping material in 36% and parallelism in 27%. Sixty one percentage of drug packages were iso-dense to faeces and 39% hyperdense....
Structural and optoelectronic properties of BaThO3 cubic perovskite are
calculated using all electrons full potential linearized augmented plane wave
(FP-LAPW) method. Wide and direct band gap, 5.7 eV, of the compound predicts
that it can be effectively used in UV based optoelectronic devices. Diff...
