- Doxycycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic, of the tetracycline class. Like other agents of this class, it either slows or kills bacteria by inhibiting protein production. It kills malaria by targeting a plastid organelle, the apicoplast. Doxycycline was patented in 1957 and came into commercial use in 1967.

4 days ago · From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Oxytetracycline was the second of the broad-spectrum tetracycline group of antibiotics to be discovered. Oxytetracycline works by interfering with the ability of bacteria to produce essential proteins. Without these proteins, the bacteria cannot grow, multiply and increase in numbers.
5 days ago · The antibiotic doxycycline is effective in preventing leptospirosis infection. Human vaccines are of limited usefulness; vaccines for other animals are more widely available. Treatment when infected is with antibiotics such as doxycycline, penicillin, or ceftriaxone. The overall risk of death is 5–10%.

Lymphangiomas are multi-cystic, localized malformations that involve the lymphatic and vascular systems, most commonly occurring in the head and neck region of pediatric patients.
The prevalence of lymphangiomas has been estimated to be 1.1 to 5.3 cases per 10,000 live births. However, the prevalence appears to be higher when the studies include live-births, terminated pregnancies, and still-births: then, the estimate is 30 cases per 10,000. Lymphangiomas represent around 4% of all vascular tumors and approximately 25% of benign pediatric vascular tumors.Orbital lymphangiomas have a prevalence of 1.1 to 5.3 cases per 10,000 live births with an equal incidence between m...
Lymphangiomas can be classified in three ways: blood flow type, vascular lesion type, cyst size and depth. These characterizations are helpful in predicting what forms of treatment may be successful. The blood flow classification system was developed by the International Orbital Society (Table 1). In this classification system, vascular malformations are separated into three distinct categories based on blood flow. 1. No Flow Malformations (Type 1) 2. Venous Flow Malformations (Type 2) 3. Art...
For orbital lymphangiomas, presentation is usually in childhood; 43% are diagnosed before the age of 6 years old and 60% before the age of 16 years old. The most frequent presenting features of orbital lymphangiomas are proptosis and ptosis of the affected eye. Other presentations include periocular mass and physical disfigurement, restriction of extraocular movements, mechanical blepharoptosis, and compressive optic neuropathy. In a retrospective study of 26 patients with orbital lymphangiom...
Diagnosis is based on clinical presentation and radiologic findings. CT scan demonstrates cyst-like masses with varying degrees of enhancement along with rim enhancement of cysts with hemorrhage. On MRI, orbital lymphangiomas are generally isointense on T1-weighted images and hyperintense on T2 images, often with a presence of internal septations within the lesion. Pathognomonic findings include multiple cysts with air-fluid levels . Radiology aids in diagnosis of lymphangioma and allows asse...
The differential diagnosis for orbital lymphangioma encompasses the differential for an orbital mass including: Vascular: 1. Cavernous hemangioma 2. Hemangiopericytoma 3. Lymphangioma / Lymphatic Malformation 4. Venous malformation 5. Arterio-venous fistula 6. Orbital hemorrhage Neural: 1. Schwannoma 2. Meningioma 3. Optic nerve glioma 4. Neurofibroma Malignant / Metastasis: 1. Lymphoma 2. Metastasis from lung cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, neuroblastoma, and leukemia
The major management options fall into one of four categories: observation, intralesional sclerosant injection, systemic medication, and surgery. There are risk and benefits to all four treatment types and no clear gold standard. Currently, there are no randomized controlled trials comparing the various medical or surgical therapies used to treat this condition.↑ Jump up to: 1.0 1.1 Forrester MB, Merz RD: Descriptive epidemiology of cystic hygroma: Hawaii, 1986 to 1999.

4 days ago · Tetracycline, sold under the brand name Sumycin among others, is an antibiotic used to treat a number of infections. This includes acne, cholera, brucellosis, plague, malaria, and syphilis. It is taken by mouth. Common side effects include vomiting, diarrhea, rash, and loss of appetite.
2 days ago · While doxycycline is considered effective for a UTI, side effects can include a burning sensation in the throat. Usually, taking doxycycline for UTI treatment is the most effective when it is taken in doses of 100 milligrams (mg) to 200 mg each day. Children often take lower doses, based on their body weight.
3 days ago · If the removed tick was full of blood, a single dose of doxycycline may be used to prevent development of infection, but is not generally recommended since development of infection is rare. If an infection develops, a number of antibiotics are effective, including doxycycline, amoxicillin, and cefuroxime.
