The manufacture of illness by one person for the benefit of another is known as Munchausen syndrome via proxy. A survey of all Munchausen-byproxy cases indicated that 25% of the children had renal or urologic issues. Munchausen-by-proxy syndrome renal and urologic manifestations are not as prevalent as one may imagine. Although this illness can pose doctors with a challenging diagnostic challenge, being aware of it can help in the early discovery of falsification and lessen the physical and psychological harm to the victim. In this study, we performed a proxy analysis of Munchausen syndrome cases in paediatric nephrology, dividing them into groups based on the key presenting symptoms.

Carotid artery disease is a condition characterized by the buildup of plaque in the carotid arteries, which are the blood vessels that supply oxygenated blood to the brain. This buildup can lead to the formation of blood clots, which can block the flow of blood to the brain and cause a stroke. Statins and non-statin lipid-lowering agents are commonly used to treat carotid artery disease by reducing cholesterol levels and preventing the buildup of plaque in the arteries. In this article, we will explore the pros and cons of these medications in the treatment of carotid artery disease.
