Interviews with sleep paralysis sufferers makes a disturbingly persuasive case for the origins of nightmare tropes in art and literature. In a comparable spirit he interviews people who suffer from sleep paralysis — a condition that flies under the clinical radar. People can have it all their lives without getting treatment or sympathy or understanding of any kind. The sufferer experiences an inability to move, often with vivid dreams, night terrors and hallucinatory visions: there are shadowy intruders, often with red eyes, sometimes squatting stiflingly on your chest.

Gossypiboma is an uncommon but avoidable condition, which is mostly asymptomatic initially and difficult to diagnose but can cause serious postoperative complications. It is a mass lesion due to surgical sponge or swab if retained in the body after the surgery. Gossypiboma has a vague presentation, and it is difficult to diagnose. In patients with a prior history of surgery having soft-tissue masses or localized pain abdomen, gossypiboma should be included in the differential diagnosis.

No one would argue about the importance of a rigorous literature review in any scientific research. In my experience, that was the longest and the exhausted step. This is the second article in a series of articles that I write in order to share my experience with the academic research. Previously, I discussed my resource for a successful critical reading and writing here , and in this article, I am going to discuss the Literature Review process. What should be my research objectives?
Metrics details. This cancer is extremely rare in elderly patients. There is a paucity of treatment and survival outcomes data for the elderly owing to the rarity of neuroblastoma in this population. Currently there are no standard guidelines or protocols for treatment of adult neuroblastoma.
