OBJECTIVE: To detect the susceptibility of urogenital chlamydia trachomatis(CT) to 12 kinds of diuretic traditional Chinese medicines. METHODS: The inhibitory activity of these medicines for CT was detected by microculture technique of McCoy cell in vitro. RESULTS: All the 12 kinds of diuretic traditional Chinese medicines had inhibitory activities for urogenital CT, with minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) from 0.122 mg.ml-1 to 62.5 mg.ml-1. The activities of Dianthus superbus L., Poria cocos(Shcw.) Woft, Polyporus umbellatus and Artemissia capillaris were stronger.

OBJECTIVE: To present a case of symptomatic, expansile L1 vertebral hemangioma. CLINICAL FEATURES: A 46-year-old man presented with progressive neurologic changes and insidious onset of low back pain. INTERVENTION AND OUTCOME: After a trial of 3 visits of conservative chiropractic care, no improvement was noted. Magnetic resonance imaging was obtained, revealing an expansile hemangioma with extra-osseous component compromising the conus medullaris at the level of the L1 lumbar vertebra. Neurosurgical intervention resulted in clinical improvement.
