    • "In addition, it has been more recently suggested that vitamin D deficiency is associated with Graves' disease [14] [15] [16]. However, vitamin D deficiency as a cause of hypocalcemia has received little attention [17] [18]. In this report, we present the case of a 41-year-old Japanese female office worker who developed symptomatic hypocalcemia with severe vitamin D deficiency following treatment for Graves' disease with MMI.

    ABSTRACT: We herein report the case of a 41-year-old Japanese female office worker who developed symptomatic hypocalcemia with severe vitamin D deficiency following treatment for Graves' disease with methimazole. The patient's hypocalcemia was mainly caused by vitamin D deficiency due to unbalanced diets and inadequate exposure to sunlight in addition to the resolution of hyperthyroidism. Vitamin D deficiency is increasing worldwide, and it has been more recently shown to relate to the pathogenesis of Graves' disease. However, vitamin D deficiency as a cause of hypocalcemia has received little attention. Taken together, this case suggests that we should take more care in calcium kinetics and vitamin D status during treatment for Graves' disease with antithyroid drugs.

    ABSTRACT: A 2 µm process, merging the major technologies required to fabricate VLSI MOS and bipolar transistors on the same integrated circuit, is described. Two mask steps are added to a two-layer metal N-well silicided CMOS process to fabricate the walled-polysilicon emitter NPN transistors. The non-epitaxial process was used to establish the current drive advantage gained by integrating NPN transistors with CMOS. By adding a 1 µm epitaxial layer and adopting a retrograde P-well, latchup is eliminated and VLSI bipolar performance becomes feasible.

    ABSTRACT: Cooper (doi 10.1136/bmj.a1126) finds Menzies’s observations more compelling than Shuster’s, as he expects most dermatologists in the world would.1 2 He is also concerned about Shuster’s article translating into an epidemic of non-melanoma skin cancer. Finally, he professes to be unaware of evidence that ultraviolet light may protect against some …
