Mangrove forests are highly productive but globally threatened coastal ecosystems, whose role in the carbon budget of the coastal zone has long been debated. Here we provide a comprehensive synthesis of the available data on carbon fluxes in mangrove ecosystems. A reassessment of global mangrove primary production from the literature results in a conservative estimate of 218 ± 72 Tg C a 1. When using the best available estimates of various carbon sinks (organic carbon export, sediment burial, and mineralization), it appears that >50% of the carbon fixed by mangrove vegetation is unaccounted for. This unaccounted carbon sink is conservatively estimated at 112 ± 85 Tg C a 1, equivalent in magnitude to 30–40% of the global riverine organic carbon input to the coastal zone. Our analysis suggests that mineralization is severely underestimated, and that the majority of carbon export from mangroves to adjacent waters occurs as dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC). CO2 efflux from sediments and creek waters and tidal export of DIC appear to be the major sinks. These processes are quantitatively comparable in magnitude to the unaccounted carbon sink in current budgets, but are not yet adequately constrained with the limited published data available so far.

Objectives: Our objective is to achieve a phenomenological cross-study of melancholic and manic crises. To do this, we analyze the relationship between these two psychopathological states by means of the concepts of "narrative identity" and "intentionality". Method: From clinical cases and with reference to various theoretical models derived from phenomenological psychopathology, we discuss similarities and differences between mania and melancholia. Results: Narrative identity is based on a double movement: that of the enunciation of a speech focused on his history and that of an act of creation. From different clinical situations, we find that: (1) the melancholic retains the ability to elaborate a narrative about his history but the creative dimension of this narrative is absent, and (2) conversely, the manic experiences only the creative dimension. Discussion: Intentionality, as the tendency of consciousness to move toward something beyond itself, proves to be the center of the manic existence without being able to set itself within the boundaries of factual constraints. The melancholic, conversely, experiences an existence in which consciousness has lost its capacity to aim beyond itself. Conclusions: Melancholia and mania are quite specific forms of being-in-world with particular identity and temporal experiences. These two states share a fundamental psychopathological feature, that we named here “manque chiasmatique”: they are disorders of the intentional movement that constitutes narrative identity, that is, of the dialectics between the rootedness (“enracinenment”) of self in its past and the possibility of creation of a new identity.

Cardiovascular complications in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. AIDS miocardiopathy has been described since 1983. Physiopathologic events leading to AIDS myocardiopathy are largely unknown: viral miocardiopathy, cytokines induced lesions, nutritional status, microvascular and ischemic miocadiopathy have been suspected. We describe a consecutive series of 50 patients (43 males, 7 women) with HIV infection and severe immunodepression (CD4<200/ml) that had clinical, ECG and echocardiographic evaluation. There were 24 drug addicted patients, 17 homosexual patients, and 10 heterosexuals. Some of these patients had the following opportunistic infections: tuberculosis (n=20), Pneumocystis carinii (n=9), Criptocococis (n=9), oropharyngeal candidosis (n=5), toxoplasmosis (n=5), histoplasmosis (n=1) and Kaposi’s sarcoma (n=2). After clinical evaluation 15/50 patients had some kind of cardiovascular complication: 6 patients had congestive heart failure, 5 patients presented with pericardial effusion, one patient has a reversible cardiac arrest, and one patient had pulmonary valvular endocarditis. After Doppler echocardiographic evaluation (according to the American echocardiography association), we found 20 patients with left ventricular diastolic dysfunction, 9 patients with right ventricular diastolic dysfunction and 6 patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction. In conclusion, our series found left diastolic dysfunction in nearly 40 % of cases and cardiavasular events (pericarditis, heart congestive failure, arrhythmias) in 26% of cases. Cardiovascular complications have prognostic implications in AIDS and shoul be early detected. Further pathological and immunohistochemical studies are needed to clarify the phyiopathological etiologies in AIDS miocardiopathy. [less ▲]

During the second half of the 2nd century B.C., the city of Bargylia, in Caria, undertook a major reorganization of the cult of Artemis Kindyas, who manifested herself to help the city when it was threatened by war. A few remarkable inscriptions provide evidence of the regulations designed to « increase the honours » of the goddess, which mainly consist in making an ox sacrifice more splendid. Less than a century beforehand, a similar situation is observed in the cult of Artemis Leukophryene in Magnesia of the Meander, and of Artemis Hiakynthotrophos in Cnidus. Based on these three examples, this paper aims at showing how these epiphanies were used to settle a given deity into its function of patron deity of the city, both from an external and from an internal point of view.

The human parvovirus B19 is a small single-strand DNA virus with specific tropism for the membranous receptor P expressed on erythrocytes and endothelial cells. About 60 - 70 % of the adult population is parvovirus B19 seropositive. The contamination usually occurs through droplets from the nasopharyngeal airways. The major systemic infections present as episodes of aplastic anemia and development of hydrops fetalis. Arthropathies, encephalitis, or glomerulonephritis are less frequently encountered. This review focuses on its cutaneous manifestations including erythema infectiosum, and the purpuric syndromes whose principal manifestation is the papulo-purpuric gloves and socks syndrome. Several other cutaneous manifestations have been reported to be associated with the parvovirus B19 without however strong evidence. These include vasculitis, erythema nodosum, the lupus eythematosus-like syndrome, some vesiculo-pustular eruptions, pityriasis lichenoides and scleroderma. [less ▲]

Some cutaneous lesions accompany or reveal endocrine disorders. Identifying the endocrinopathy is very important because it sometimes allows corrective rather than symptomatic treatment. The most frequenly involved diseases include thyrotoxicosis, hypothyroidism, the auto-immune disorders of thyroid, Cushing syndrome, Addison disease, acromegaly, androgen-dependent disorders, hypopituitarism, hypoparathyroidism, pseudohypoparathyroidism and diabetes mellitus.

The hemodynamic and cardiovascular changes seen during PE vary according to the natural history of the disease, its severity and eventual therapeutic measures taken. In the early stages of pregnancy, patients who will eventually develop PE, present with a blood pressure which even though within normal limits, is higher than in other women. Similarly, their cardiac output is higher with a normal or decreased peripheral vascular resistance. As soon as the clinical signs of the disease appear, the hemodynamic picture usually shifts toward that of a high peripheral resistance with low cardiac output. Sometimes however, a clinically hyperkinetic circulation may be demonstrated. In PE patients, cardiac preload pressures are usually normal even though the circulatory volumes are lower by 600 to 800ml when compared to those found in normal pregnancy. The cardiac function is however usually preserved during PE. PE induces an exaggerated capillary permeability. This results in the worsening of the airway edema which may render the intubation very difficult. The increased capillary permeability contributes, among other factors, to the heightened risk of acute pulmonary edema. It is not justified to administer an anti-hypertensive treatment to PE women presenting with only moderate hypertension. An anti-hypertensive treatment must only be initiated whenever the hypertension is severe (i.e. SBP>/=160mmHg and/or DBP>/=110mmHg) in order to reduce the risk of maternal complications. In the absence of objective comparative data assessing anti-hypertensive agents for the PE patient, the choice of therapy relies predominantly on the practitioners' own experience. Systematic circulatory volume expansion has not been proven to improve the maternal nor the neonatal prognosis. Such treatment is to be reserved solely for situations in which correcting a hypo-volemia is absolutely necessary. The treatment of acute pulmonary edema in a PE patient is symptomatic and includes the administration of vasodilating agents and of diuretics. A benefit in setting-up an invasive monitoring of the pulmonary artery occlusive pressure has not been demonstrated. The sonographic surveillance of the hemodynamic state can however be useful in these circumstances. [less ▲]
