Abstract : Lymphocytic hypophysitis, a rare autoimmune disorder causing inflammation of the pituitary gland, often presents diagnostic challenges due to its varied manifestations and rarity. This report discusses a unique case of a 20-year-old female patient presented with polyuria, polydipsia, and fatigue. The initial laboratory evaluation suggested diabetes insipidus (DI), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed an enlarged pituitary gland with mild, uniform thickening of the pituitary stalk. The patient was diagnosed with lymphocytic hypophysitis and managed with desmopressin and hydrocortisone. This case report highlights the challenges in diagnosing and treating lymphocytic hypophysitis presenting with central DI. The report emphasizes the importance of considering lymphocytic hypophysitis as a potential differential diagnosis in cases of unexplained DI, particularly in young women. Additionally, it underlines the significance of a comprehensive diagnostic approach, including laboratory tests and imaging studies, to reach a conclusive diagnosis in such rare and complex cases. The management of lymphocytic hypophysitis involves addressing the underlying autoimmune inflammation and associated hormonal imbalances. In this case, the use of desmopressin and hydrocortisone proved successful in managing the patient's symptoms and improving her overall clinical condition.

Abstract : Background ACEs is a major health and social issue with its burden on children themselves and their families with all its negative impact later on the individual adulthood. It was confirmed by several studies that ACEs associated with multiple negative adulthood out comes such as chronic diseases, obesity, depression, anxiety, drug abuse and also suicide. The aim of the study is determining ACEs prevalence among children with ASDs and addressing the factors associated with its increased prevalence, thus further preventive strategies can be implemented and lead to more support to those vulnerable group of children and their families Methods It is cross-sectional study was conducted among 79 participants from different governmental and private pediatric clinics. questionnaire was conducted and validated questionnaire was used. We assessed health outcomes associated with the ACE scale. Psychosocial/behavioral outcomes had higher odds ratio than medical outcomes with increasing ACE scale scores Results: About 38% of participants reported that they had seen or heard one of their parents screaming, insulting, or humiliating someone at home many times, while 40% reported that the same issue occurred sometimes. Fifty two percent sometimes witnessed someone being beaten. Conclusions: Exposure to multiple ACEs is associated with a wide variety of outcomes. This data suggests a benefit of screening for ACEs using this scale and highlights the need to find interventions.

Abstract : One of the HR problems that occur in hospitals is a high turnover rate which can have a negative impact on hospitals, that are the emergence of instability and uncertainty in the workforce, besides it can also increase financial investment in HR financing. Problems at Universitas Indonesia Hospital related to the high turnover rate can be seen from the increase in the turnover rate for General Practitioners, in 2020 42%, in 2021 55%, and in 2022 101%. This research was conducted with the aim of knowing HR problems related to the high rate of resignation of General Practitioners at Universitas Indonesia Hospital and factors that cause it. This research is a cross-sectional study using a descriptive analysis approach by looking at data on the number of General Practitioners who have resigned in 2020-2022. Reasons of resignation at RSUI are divided into 3 main reasons based on the majority of results found in the exit interview form for resigning employees, the reasons for resignation cumulatively during 2020-2022 are due to accepting other jobs by 58%, continuing education by 36%, and moving residence by 6%. Several strategies in dealing with the turnover rates in order to not have negative impact on hospital services as follows: Setting the time period for resignation; Carry out further analysis and evaluation regarding the benefits of the compensation; Build and increase the loyalty of General Practitioners to hospital; Create plans for general practitioner workload analysis

Abstract : Background: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) cases frequently experienced anaemia because of iron restriction and inflammation. Iron supplements, erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) and, in extreme circumstances, red blood cell transfusions are options being used to treat anaemia caused by chronic kidney disease. Objective: to investigate the relationships between ESA resistance and gender, BMI, albumin, and the normalised protein catabolic rate. Methodology: Over the course of more than three months, ninty seven patients aged eighteen to seventy five who have been receiving steady haemodialysis treatment at the haemodialysis unit at Theodor bilharz research institute (TBRI).The medical histories as well as physical examinations of all patients were thoroughly documented, down to the patient's age, gender, race, whether or not they had received EPO, and the patient's EPO dosage in units per week. Weight and height were assessed as well as BMI was determined as weight/height (kg/m2). Results: Our data showed that the mean ERI was 14.8 U/kg/week EPO/Hb g/dL, that there was no link between ERI and gender, ERI and urea levels showed negative correlation before and after dialysis (p= 0.013), creatinine levels (p= 0.002), BMI (p= 0.016), and N-PCR (p= 0.034)and highly statistically negative correlation between ERI and haemoglobin level(p<0.001)and serum albumin(p<0.001),ERI and CRP showed highly statistically positive correlation(p<0.001). Conclusion: EPO hypo-responsiveness wa

Abstract : Aim: to evaluate patient`s satisfaction and peri-implant parameters around dental implants restored with customized PEEK abutments compared to Zirconium abutments and loaded with PEEK superstructure. Methodology: 30 implants in the esthetic were restored with custom made hybrid abutments made from PEEK (n=15) and zirconium (n=15), both groups were loaded with PEEK crowns veneered with Visiolign., outcomes were assessed at time of superstructure insertion (T0), 3 months (T1), 6months (T2) and 12 months (T3) after loading. Patient`s satisfaction was measured using the visual analogue scale (VAS), Peri-implant parameters included bleeding on probing (BOP), plaque index (PI) and probing depth (PD) were measured using a graduated periodontal probe. Results: There was no statistically significant difference between PEEK and zirconium abutments regarding patient`s satisfaction, Plaque index, Probing depth, however PEEK abutments group showed statistically significant lower BOP results at T1. Conclusions: Within the limitation of the current study it was concluded that PEEK is a viable substitute to zirconium abutments when restoring dental implants, with the advantage of decreasing plaque accumulation.
