Papillomavirus infections have been reported both in numerous feral felidae and in domestic cats.

The functions of the vestibular apparatus are categorised under the name of...

The difficulty that physicians have, in detecting hypoxaemia, was exemplified in a study of over 14,000 patients being evaluated at the UCLA Emergency Department. Patients were monitored with...

The disorder may be primary or secondary. In primary hyperparathyroidism the excessive secretion of parathyroid hormone is due to an adenoma or, more rarely, a carcinoma of the parathyroid chief cells. The primary form of...
