Abstract

The unusual syndrome of suprascapular entrapment neuropathy is described with reference to a 19-years-old girl. The most important symptom is pain in and around the shoulder, while wasting of the Spinati muscles is the cardial sign. Surgical decompression of the nerve relieves the pain immediately.

Cachexia & Brown Fat

Cachexia is a condition associated with progressive weight loss due to severe illness. In cancer patients, it is proposed to occur as a result of tumor-induced energy wasting. Several proteins have been implicated in browning and depletion of white adipose tissue. Here is the latest research on cachexia and brown fat.

Cardiac Cachexia

Cardiac cachexia is a syndrome associated with the progressive loss of muscle and fat mass. It most commonly affects patients with heart failure and can significantly decrease the quality of life and survival in these patients. Here is the latest research on cardiac cachexia.
