Parry-Romberg Syndrome: 5 Facts on the Rare Facial Disorder

David Knowles
David Knowles  

For 11-year-old Christine Honeycutt, the mirror presented an unwanted reflection.

Afflicted with Parry-Romberg syndrome, one half of Honeycutt's face seemed to age faster than the other, leaving a whole that was visibly out of sync with itself. Her story, reported by CNN, has drawn attention to the facial disorder that affects a small number of children each year.

Using information provided by the National Institutes of Health, Surge Desk has a handy primer on Parry-Romberg syndrome:

1. What is Parry-Romberg syndrome?
"Slow progressive deterioration of the skin and soft tissues of the face" typify Parry-Romberg syndrome. This accelerated aging and decay can lead to an asymmetrical-looking face, often giving the eye and tissue on the left side a sunken or deflated appearance.

2. What causes it?
The disorder afflicts roughly one in a million children. So far, the cause remains unknown, according to the National Organization for Rare Disorders.

3. When does it start in a child's life?
According to the NIH, children can begin showing signs of Parry-Romberg syndrome between the ages of 5 and 15.

4. How does one treat it?
As with Christine Honeycutt, some children opt for reconstructive surgery to replace the damaged tissue using muscle and bone grafts.

5. What's the outlook for a cure?
As yet, there is no cure for Parry-Romberg syndrome, CNN reported, nor are there any treatments for the disorder outside of reconstructive surgery.

Queen Noor of Jordan about the Muslim Brotherhood

News-worthy.info — In an exclusive interview with Piers Morgan last night, Queen Rania of Jordan said that while most Arabs are moderate peaceful centrist, the Muslim Brotherhood are one of the many groups throughout the region that have points of view that need to come to the table.

Her remarks were in response to Morgan’s question about Newt Gingrich’s statement earlier before saying that “the Muslim Brotherhood is a mortal enemy” of Western civilization.

In his critics to Obama’s administration approach to political crisis in Egypt, Gingrich expressed his concerns that the United States might reach out to the Muslim Brotherhood.

“I think this is absolute total misreading of history. The Muslim Brotherhood is a mortal enemy of our civilization, they say so openly,” Gingrich said.

Answering Morgan’s question whether she agrees with what Gingrich said about the Muslim Brotherhood, Queen Rania said, “I think that is a very polarizing approach to what is taking place in the Middle East that has dominated for a very long time. It assumes that any religious group is somehow dangerous and extreme while in fact most Arabs – religion is important to most Arabs – actually are moderate peaceful centrists,” and that “The Muslim Brotherhood are one of the many groups throughout the region that have points of view that need to come to the table”.

Flight from death's jaws

FRANKFURT: An Australian couple escaped being bashed to death after they responded to a Facebook appeal to donate blood for injured protesters in strife-torn Cairo.

Brendan Clowry, 29, a physical education teacher, and his wife - who is of Egyptian background and chose not to be named - survived a ferocious attack by pro-Egyptian government thugs who threatened to murder them while attacking their car with iron bars and cement posts.

Mr Clowry, accompanied by his wife and her mother, landed in Frankfurt on a Qantas evacuation charter flight on Friday after an 11th-hour dash to meet consular officials after the attack.

They were lucky that the evacuation aircraft had been delayed in Frankfurt for 24 hours for repairs.
Clearly shocked by their ordeal, the Sydney couple, who work at the British International School in Cairo, said they still did not know how they had escaped with their lives.

"A friend of ours had a baby on Wednesday and we had been to the hospital to visit. Everything was fine then; it was relatively calm. When we saw the appeal for blood on Facebook we rang to check that it was OK and things seemed OK to return," Mr Clowry said.

Egypt in turmoil

"We didn't take risks but when we got close to the hospital, we saw a traffic block … everyone was in plain clothes but everyone had a weapon … iron bars, rocks, fence posts dug out of the ground with cement still attached.

''We had to stop and they just came at us screaming we were anti-government and 'we are going to kill you'. They tried to get us out of the car."

Mr Clowry said his wife tried to talk to the men and calm them down. However, she had quickly realised they were intent on violence and put the car into reverse gear and accelerated away, smashing through iron barriers and fences to escape the mob.

"We realised that if we didn't get out of there we would get killed. Her driving was unbelievable; she just floored it, put her foot down.

''They didn't stop, though. They smashed the windscreen, the side windows, then the back. I don't know, still, how we got out of there alive."

The couple said they had had no intention of leaving Cairo before the attack. "Everything is there: our lives, our home,'' Mr Clowry said. ''It is so terribly sad. Things were under control; it was a peaceful demonstration against the regime until the pro-Mubarak people came out. It is so obvious that they have tried to intimidate people, to frighten the anti-regime people out of [the] demonstration. Sadly, it is working. We only wanted to help and now we have left. So many others will have done the same." His shaken wife added: "I read that the pro-government people were thugs.''

In Sydney yesterday about 200 protesters staged a rally demanding Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stand down. Hundreds also took to the streets of New York and Chicago, calling for his departure.

Fans Scramble for Comic Con Tickets As System Crashes - For the Third Time


Tickets are still available - but can they be bought?

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (KTLA) -- Third time is usually the charm - but not for Comic Con fans. The online ticketing system once again crashed Saturday morning as fans tried to buy passes for the vastly popular convention.

Users trying to access TicketLeap's website minutes before the tickets were scheduled to be available Saturday morning instead received error messages that the site was over capacity. The site was still down hours after the 9 a.m. start time. Despite refreshing, some reported seeing a page saying "We'll be right back. TicketLeap is currently down for maintenance."

TicketLeap was the third company organizers have contracted to host the ticket sales for the July 21-24 event. A promising trial run of the site in December successfully allowed the sales of 1,000 four-day badges to the event.

Fans tweeting about their troubles sent the hash-tag topic #SDCC (San Diego Comic Con) to the top of the world-wide trending chart and went as far as blaming 'Twilight' fans for the meltdown. (The cast of the popular vampire film series is rumored to attend.)

"I mean, is it wrong of me to *assume* Comic Con #SDCC would have a freaking IT Geek under their belt?" wrote TrekJen.

TicketLeap responded to frustrations, in a tweet, "@Comic_Con fans, if you see an over capacity message hit refresh. We are under heavy load right now and it should smooth out. #sdcc."

Punxsutawney Phil 2011: Did he see his shadow?

Did Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow on Groundhog's Day, 2011?

Amid another major winter storm in a large part of the country, many readers want to know what the legendary predictor of an early or late spring, the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil, saw when he came out of his hutch on Groundhog's Day Wednesday.
Phil came out of hiding in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania and did not see his shadow -- that means we are in for an early spring, if you believe the furry prognosticator.

Each year on Groundhog's Day, February 2nd, the small town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania hosts the festival that attracts media attention from all around the world. This year marked the 125th anniversary of the event.

A handler, this year named Ben Hughes, removes Phil from his hiding place and villagers and visitors look on as the furry critter looks about. It is then proclaimed whether or not he sees his shadow.

The early/late spring prediction often confuses people because if it is a sunny morning, and he does see his shadow, that is supposed to mean six more weeks of winter -- perhaps a counterintuitive finding given the bright conditions.

Of course, with February 2nd happening in the dead of winter in the Northeast, the likelihood is perhaps greater that it will be grey and cloudy -- in that case, Phil's prediction of an early spring comes as welcome news.

Both Phil and Punxsutawney, PA were made even more famous after Bill Murray starred in the popular 1993 comedy film, Groundhog Day which was set at the festival.

Sal Picinich, 'Cake Boss' baker, dies at age 63 of cancer; TLC sends condolences to Buddy Valastro

Sal Picinich, 'Cake Boss' baker who worked at Carlo's Bakery for 45 years, has died at the age of 63 of cancer.
Sal Picinich, 'Cake Boss' baker who worked at Carlo's Bakery for 45 years, has died at the age of 63 of cancer.
Sal Picinich, the baker who rose to fame on the TLC reality show "Cake Boss," has died at the age of 63.
His wife, Lucille, told the North Jersey Record that he died from cancer.
A tribute aired at the end of the Monday night episode of the TLC show, which centers on Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken, where Picinich worked for 45 years, originally under "Cake Boss" star Buddy Valastro’s father.

"TLC was saddened to learn of the passing of Sal Picinich, a beloved Carlo's Bakery employee featured on 'Cake Boss," TLC said in an official statement. "We join Buddy Valastro and the entire Carlo's crew in sending Sal's family our sincerest condolences."

Picinich stopped appearing on the TLC show in 2009 when he reportedly started battling cancer.

"The minute he didn't go down to Carlo's Bakery was the minute I knew Sal was starting to feel pain," his wife told the Record.

He briefly returned to "Cake Boss" last year for the Employee of the Century of the Award, which he accepted on the 100th anniversary of the bakery.

Picinich is survived by his two children, grandchildren and his wife of 38 years.
His funeral will be held Friday in East Rutherford.

The fourth season of "Cake Boss" airs Mondays on TLC.
