  • Objectives : This study is performed for the purpose of proving the efficacy of the Oriental medicine of swollen leg. Edema is defined as an increase in the extravascular(interstitial) component of the extracellular fluid volume, which may expand by several liters before the abnormality is recognized. We treated one case of patient with a swollen leg. Methods & results : We examined DITI before treatment and after treatment. We measured the circumference of thigh and calf every morning, so we compared with the values day after day. So we found the fact that leg swelling considerably decreased after treatment for 14 days. We followed up after discharge. Conclusions : Acupuncture, Aquacupuncture and Herbal medicine is possible to be effective for treating patients with a swollen leg.

  • Cutaneous follicular B-cell lymphoma (CFBCL) is defined as the neoplastic proliferation of germinal center cells confined to the skin. Secondary CFBCL demonstrates a more aggressive clinical course compared to the primary form. We report the case of a 45-year-old man who presented with a 15-day history of lesions on his right leg. Clinical examination revealed multiple erythematous miliary/agminated papules on the right proximal thigh with erythematous swollen patches on the right lower leg. Biopsy of a thigh lesion revealed a massive dermal lymphocytic infiltrate with a follicular pattern. Immunohistochemical staining revealed atypical lymphocytes, which strongly expressed CD20, CD10, Bcl-2, Bcl-6 and Ki-67 proteins, but not CD3 and Cyclin D1. Additionally, further studies revealed that this cutaneous lesion had originated from a retroperitoneal lymph node. We treated the patient with systemic chemotherapy using a cyclophosphamide, hydroxydaunorubicin, oncovin, and prednisone (CHOP) regimen and anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies. This case illustrates a rarely reported example of secondary cutaneous follicular B-cell lymphoma showing peculiar clinical manifestations.

  • Avian reoviruses have been implicated in respiratory disease enteric conditions including Cloacal pasting in young thicks, pericarditis, hydropericardium, anaemia with swollen spleen and liver and petechiation of skeletal muscle and viral arthritis. This study was conducted to examine properties of reovirus field 3 strains isolated from affected broiler from several farms. An infectious agent was isolated from leg tendons and intestine of broiler with clinical tenosynovitis. The agent grew well on the chicken embryo kideny cells(CEK). One of them produced cytopathic effects(CPE) of round type and formed intranuclear inclusions, and the other was characterized by CPE of syncytical type and cytoplasmic inclusion. The properties and serological classification of field strains were examined by hemagglutin test, virus neutralization test, agar gel precipitin, electropherotype. They showed no hemagglutination reactions and not well neutralization and to possess common antigens detectable by AGP test. RNA electropherotype presented 10 segment band as the previous report. These data suggest that the field strains and standard strains (1133, 1733) may be the same group.

  • The complete postembryonic developments of copepodid stages of Paramphiascella vararensis T. Scott(Copepoda: Harpacticoida) are described and illustrated based on specimens cultured in laboratory. The copepodites of P. vararensis feed on powder of one of green macro-algae species Ulva pertusa. Developmental time from copepodid stage to adult (copepodid stage) is about 15 days with culture conditions of 33-34 ppt of salinity, 22-23$^{\circ}$C of temperature and feed on algae powder. Sexual characters of the species are distinct on the copepodid stage. Sexual characters appear in size, antennule, pereiopods of second and bases of the fifth and sixth legs. Males are considerably smaller than females in size. In the antennule, the fourth segment of the male extremely is modified and swollen for female. In the segment number of the endopod of second pereiopod, female has 3 segments while male bears 2 segments. The female has 3 setae while the male bears 2 setae on the inner lobe of basis of fifth leg. In the basis of sixth leg, the female has 2 setae while the male has 3 setae.

  • Pseudomonas aerusinosa infection was diagnosed in broiler chicks, and was submitted to the National Veterinary Research and Quarantine Service in Korea. The total mortality rate was about 1,500 birds out of 22,000 broilers. Clinically, affected birds showed clinical signs including depression and anorexia with lameness and trembling of the leg. At necropsy, the dead broilers appeared to have omphalitis, yolk sac infection, fibrinous epicarditis, and fibrinous exudates in liver with swollen hock joint. Microscopically, there were multiple necrotic foci in the liver, fibrinous exudates in the heart, and infiltration of heterophils into the joint spaces of the hock joint. Pseudomonas aerusinosa was isolated from the heart, liver and hock joint, and the isolate was named P-200. In effort to estimate the virulence of P-200, 1-day-old chicks were challenged intramuscularly and intrayolksacally with the isolate. On the basis of mortality rate, the isolate P-200 was found to be highly virulent. This is the first report of an occurrence of Pseudomonas aerusinosa infection in broilers in Korea.

  • A new monstrilloid species belonging to the genus $Cymbasoma$ is described as a preliminary result from nocturnal surveys using a light trap on the east and south coasts of South Korea. Monstrilloid copepods are first recorded in South Korea. $Cymbasoma$ $striifrons$ n. sp. resembles $C.$ $striatum$ (Isaac, 1974) and $C.$ $tumorifrons$ Isaac, 1975 in sharing the character combination of transverse striations on forehead, somewhat small body (generally slightly less or longer than 1 mm), single lobed leg 5 bearing a short medial seta in female, and smooth lateral margin of anal somite without notch and wrinkles. However, $C.$ $striifrons$ n. sp. differs from $C.$ $striatum$ by relatively short and swollen cephalothorax, and rather strongly wrinkled genital somite. $Cymbasoma$ $striifrons$ n. sp. is also distinguished from $C.$ $tumorifrons$ in lacking a rounded protuberance on anterior margin of ventral surface and by relatively short cephalothorax and the number of ventral nipple-like processes on cephalothorax. Herein the new species is described and illustrated, with some comments on the morphological comparison with its allied species.
