It is a great honor to show our gratitude to Prof. Dr Nasih Sinasi Ozsoylu, who is a retired professor of Pediatrics, Hematology, and Hepatology. It is an honor to be in acquaintance with him. We have learned a lot from him. He was a doctor and an academician. He was the editor of this journal for many years until he entrusted this duty to Dr Mahmut Nedim Aytekin.

This study aimed to determine the role of the serum growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor–binding proteins 3 levels measured in the first 24 h in the diagnosis and pathophysiology of acute myocardial infarction (AMI).
The levels of serum Growth hormone, insulin-like growth factors1, and insulin-like growth factor–binding proteins 3 of the patients diagnosed with AMI in the first 24 h of onset and that of the control group at the time of admission were compared between January 1 and August 31, 2010.
The average age of the patient group was 59.36 ± 13: 25 years, and 79.4% of the patients were males. The serum growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor–binding proteins 3 levels were significantly higher in the patient group (P < 0.05). However, no differences were found between insulin-like growth factors 1 levels in both the groups (P > 0.05). The sensitivity of growth hormone was 84.1% with a cutoff value of 0.14; the sensitivity of insulin-like growth factors1 was 33.6% with a cutoff value of 162; and the sensitivity of insulin-like growth factor–binding proteins 3 was 75.7% with a cutoff value of 2862.
The present study showed that growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor binding proteins 3 markers play important roles in the pathophysiology of myocardial infarction. Hence, it is thought that they can be used in the diagnosis of AMI. Further studies are needed to validate the conclusion.

The present study was designed to discuss many important points related to Sharbat with different types of drugs (juicy fruits, dried sour fruits, dried sweet fruits, dry herbal drugs, mucilaginous drugs, drugs having volatile constituents, and so forth). It also aimed to extensively discuss the drug and water ratio and drug and sugar ratio to prepare Sharbat, which is mentioned in different reference books of Unani system of medicine (USM). USM includes many safe and effective single drugs as well as compound formulations of herbal, animal, and mineral origin, which are used to cure a wide range of diseases. Unani compound preparations are commonly used in four forms: solid (Hab, Qurs, Safoof, Kushta, and so forth); semisolid (Majoon, Laooq, Marham/Zamad, and so forth); liquid (Sharbat, Sheera, Rooh, Tila, and so forth); and gaseous (Bakhoor, Inkabab, and so forth). Sharbat is an important dosage form used from ancient times. It is mostly used for the respiratory, urinary, digestive, and cardiovascular systems of the body.

This study aimed to investigate the relationship between the Young–Burgess classification (YBC) system and mortality and morbidity.
A total of 50 cases of pelvic fracture in patients who were admitted to our emergency department between January 01, 2011, and February 26, 2012, were scanned. The fractures were classified according to the YBC system based on plain graphs and tomography results for a more objective classification.
The total mortality rate was 10%. No relationship was found between the YBC groups and mortality. The relationship between the YBC types and erythrocyte transfusion requirement was statistically significant. The fracture types were classified into two groups: stable [lateral compression type 1 (LC-1) and anterior–posterior compression (APC) type 1] and unstable [LC-2-, LC-3, APC-2, APC-3, vertical shear, and combined mechanism of injury]. The erythrocyte transfusion requirements were found to be significantly higher in the unstable group. Similarly, LC-2 showed higher erythrocyte transfusion requirements compared with LC-1. No relationship was observed between the groups and head–chest–abdomen–spine injuries. The mortality was higher in the unstable group than in the stable group, although the difference was not statistically significant.
The YBC system is useful to understand the pelvic fracture type, despite no relationship between the different types of fracture and mortality and morbidity. The present results indicated the need for a new system for the classification of pelvic fractures.

Foreign bodies are one of the rare cause of mechanical intestinal obstructions. 75 years old female patient presented to emergency department complaining about abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Patient underwent to surgery for mechanical intestinal obstruction. Obstruction due to necrosis in 30 centimeters of terminal ileum detected. Resection and end to end anastomosis performed. A napkin seen inside of the specimen. We are presenting a patient with mechanical intestinal obstruction due to a napkin.

8.A Neonate with Aplasia Cutis Congenita Type VI with Junctional Epidermolysis Bullosa: A Very Rare Condition

doi: 10.5505/ias.2016.81905  Pages 96 - 98 (189 accesses)
This study aimed to describe a case of aplasia cutis congenita with epidermolysis bullosa, as only a few reports of Bart’s syndrome exist in the medical literature. Aplasia cutis congenita (ACC) is a rare dermatological condition characterized by the absence of skin. It has no proven etiology and hence stills remains a mystery for the dermatologist of the modern world. The most common body part affected is the scalp. ACC with epidermolysis bullosa (Bart’s syndrome) is a very rare variant of aplasia cutis.

9.Posterior Prostatic Urethral Diverticulum As A Cause of Recurrent Febrile Urinary Tract Infection in An Infant: An Infrequently Seen Condition and Literature Review

This study aimed to report a case of recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI) with Escherichia coli in an infant, secondary to the prostatic urethral diverticulum. Neonatal UTI is a rare cause of late -onset sepsis with an incidence of 1.1% in term neonates. Recurrent UTI in infancy is often associated with vesicoureteral reflux. A prostatic urethral diverticulum is an extremely rare cause of recurrent UTI in neonatal age group. The infant in the present case was treated with intravenous antibiotics and discharged on oral antibiotics prophylaxis. The infant is in regular follow-up with no readmission for repeat UTI. This was a rare presentation of a prostatic urethral diverticulum in newborns/infants. Treatment involves antibiotic prophylaxis with regular urological follow-up.
