Within scholarship on indigenismo, it is commonly held that the Indigenous uprisings in the southern Andes at the turn of the twentieth century spurred the cultural and political activities that we understand as the indigenista movement. Under the growing global demand for wool, these violent uprisings responded to new injuries accreted to old in a region where a variety of colonial relations, within an imaginary of coloniality, persisted. In this understanding of indigenismo, strangely, Indigenous peoples’ protest is interpreted to be an inspiration for indigenismo writ large. In contradistinction, this chapter reconceptualizes indigenismo by drawing on literature usually excluded by that term. The point is twofold: to illustrate the complex web of practices, often undertaken by Indigenous peoples themselves, in which indigenismo arose; and to reinvigorate our understanding of how local responses to transnational economic flows embodied a cultural imaginary that brought elite and nonelite actors together.
Intracardiac rhabdomyomas can cause severe ventricular dysfunction and outflow tract obstruction.
A term newborn infant with antenatal diagnosis of giant left ventricle rhabdomyoma presented with cardiac failure and duct-dependent systemic circulation after birth. She was treated successfully with everolimus, showing decrease in tumour size and improvement in left ventricular ejection fraction.
Tumour regression rate was 0.32 cm2/day and improved to 0.80 cm2/day with the use of everolimus. Herein we report a newborn with inoperable giant left ventricular cardiac rhabdomyoma and significant regression of the tumour. To our knowledge, this is the largest left ventricular rhabdomyoma reported. A review of the literature was undertaken for comparison.
Everolimus has proven to be efficacious in size reduction of cardiac rhabdomyomas in cases when surgical resection is not possible.
The presence of a shrimp necrotizing hepatopancreatitis bacterium (NHP) in zooplankton samples from the Gulf of California was confirmed by qPCR and DNA sequences analysis. Samples of zooplankton were collected from stations located on the eastern shore of the Gulf of California, an area adjacent geographically to the coast of Sonora, Mexico. Three zooplankton samples (NHP S3, S23 and S24) were detected. These samples were collected in Bahía de Agiabampo and Bahía de Guasimas, an area distributed along the length of the coast in the vicinity of a shrimp farm area. These results clearly indicate that NHP-B may be associated or colonizing zooplankton, which may serve as a potential vector of potential importance in the spread of this disease. The biological meaning of this finding is discussed.
