In writing An Atlas of Parkinson’s Disease and
Related Disorders, I have been conscious of the
need to find an appropriate match between the
text and the illustrative material. The text is
designed to provide a basic overview of the conditions
discussed, inevitably concentrating on those
areas which lend themselves best to photographic
illustration. Some movement disorders, by their
very nature, do not lend themselves to still
photography whereas others, characterized by
sustained postures, are ideally suited to the technique.
Among all the clinical indications for which radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians,
neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists (and others examining disorders of
the brain) order and read brain PET scans, demand is greatest for those pertaining
to dementia and related disorders. This demand is driven by the sheer prevalence of
those conditions, coupled with the fact that the differential diagnosis for causes of
cognitive impairment is wide and often difficult to distinguish clinically.
Senescence is a biological process that causes a progressive deterioration of structure and function of all organs chronologically. Recent studies have revealed the detailed molecular mechanisms of senescence using cell culture system and experimental organisms. It is thought that senescence is a potential cause for the development of various age-related disorders such as cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative disorders.
There are a wide range of problems that are considered psychological
disorders, including mental and emotional disorders, problems
related to alcohol and drug abuse, and some diseases that cause both
emotional and physical symptoms. Psychological disorders often begin in
early childhood, but during adolescence we see a sharp increase in the
number of people affected by these disorders. It has been estimated that
about 20 percent of the U.S. population will have some form of mental
disorder sometime during their lifetime. Some psychological disorders
appear following severe stress or trauma.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), like
hepatitis C and HIV, is a disease of our generation.
Mostly unrecognized prior to 1980 and seldom taken
seriously until the past few years, NAFLD has seemingly
been thrust upon us unexpectantly like an
orphaned child left at our clinical bedside. In fact,
NAFLD was conceived during the industrial revolution,
which caused food to be processed differently,
provided that food more abundantly and made physical
work less demanding.

With the aging of the population, we are seeing a global increase in the
prevalence of age-related disorders, especially in developed countries.
Chronic diseases disproportionately affect the older segment of the popula-tion, contributing to disability, a diminished quality of life and an increase
in healthcare costs.

Harrison's Internal Medicine Chapter 106. Plasma Cell Disorders
Plasma Cell Disorders: Introduction
The plasma cell disorders are monoclonal neoplasms related to each other by virtue of their development from common progenitors in the B lymphocyte lineage. Multiple myeloma, Waldenström's macroglobulinemia, primary
amyloidosis (Chap. 324), and the heavy chain diseases comprise this group and may be designated by a variety of synonyms such as monoclonal gammopathies, paraproteinemias, plasma cell dyscrasias, and dysproteinemias.
After a diabetes-related LEA has been reported to be as low as 28% to 31% (169, 170). Persons with renal failure or more proximal levels of amputation have a poor prognosis and higher mortality rate. Those who undergo a diabetesrelated amputation have a 40% to 50 % chance of undergoing a contralateral amputation within 2 years (36, 171, 172). ASSESSMENT OF THE DIABETIC FOOT (Pathway 1) The pedal manifestations of diabetes are well documented and potentially limb-threatening when left untreated.

Anemia occurs in ~80% of myeloma patients. It is usually normocytic and normochromic and related both to the replacement of normal marrow by expanding tumor cells and to the inhibition of hematopoiesis by factors made by the tumor. In addition, mild hemolysis may contribute to the anemia. A larger than expected fraction of patients may have megaloblastic anemia due to either folate or vitamin B12 deficiency. Granulocytopenia and thrombocytopenia are very rare.
