Threatened Abortion

A threatened abortion is vaginal bleeding that occurs in the first 20 weeks of pregnancy. This can occur in 20-30% of pregnant women. The bleeding is sometimes accompanied by abdominal cramps. These symptoms indicate that a miscarriage is possible, which is why the condition is known as a threatened abortion or threatened miscarriage. Approximately 50 percent of women with threatened abortion will carry their baby to term. The exact cause of a threatened abortion usually isn’t known. However, it’s more common among women who have previously had a miscarriage.

Tinea Corporis (Ringworm)

Tinea Corporis is a skin infection caused by a fungus. Ringworm can affect skin on the body (tinea corporis), scalp (tinea capitis), groin area (tinea cruris, also called jock itch), or feet (tinea pedis, also called athlete's foot). There can be several patches of ringworm on the skin at once. The name comes from the characteristic rash of redness surrounding an area of normal-appearing skin and has nothing to do with a worm being under the skin. The infection can be acquired through contact with infected humans, infected animals, or from contact with objects containing the fungus such as bedding, clothes, or hair brushes.

Tinea Cruris in a Male

Tinea Cruris, aka "jock itch", is skin infection caused by a fungus. The rash is often itchy, red, often ring-shaped and occurs in the groin and other warm, moist areas of your body. Tinea Cruris is common in people who sweat a lot such as athletes, overweight people, and people who live in hot and humid climates.

Tinnitus From a Vascular Cause

Tinnitus may be caused by vascular problems within the brain or near the ear, which may give the sensation of a pulse or a "blowing" sound.

Toe Fracture

A fracture is a broken bone. The toes are commonly fractured and usually can be easily treated by splinting the toe. If the broken bone punctures the skin (open fracture) antibiotics may be required to prevent an infection of the bone. If there is a loss of alignment or deformity, the fracture the bones will be put back in place and splinted. Severe fractures may have an associated tendon, nerve or blood vessel injury.
