2. She was the product of incest.

Like many royal houses, members of the Ptolemaic dynasty often married within the family to preserve the purity of their bloodline. More than a dozen of Cleopatra’s ancestors tied the knot with cousins or siblings, and it’s likely that her own parents were brother and sister. In keeping with this custom, Cleopatra eventually married both of her adolescent brothers, each of whom served as her ceremonial spouse and co-regent at different times during her reign.

Normal Menstrual Cycles

Menarche

Despite variations worldwide and within the U.S. population, median age at menarche has remained relatively stable—between 12 years and 13 years—across well-nourished populations in developed countries Box 1 2 3. The U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys have found no significant change in the median age at menarche over the past 30 years, except among the non-Hispanic black population which has a 5.5-month earlier median age at menarche than it did 30 years ago 2. Studies have shown that a higher gain in body mass index during childhood is related to an earlier onset of puberty 4 5 that may result from attainment of a minimal requisite body mass index at a younger age. Environmental factors, including socioeconomic conditions, nutrition, and access to preventive health care, may influence the timing and progression of puberty 6.

6. Dry Plates: 1871-1878

For most of the 1800s, the panoply of noxious solutions and mixtures involved in using a camera made photography difficult for anyone without a working knowledge of chemistry. That finally changed in the 1870s, when Robert L. Maddox and others perfected a new type of photographic plate that preserved silver salts in gelatin. Since they retained their light-sensitivity for long periods of time, these 𠇍ry” plates could be prepackaged and mass-produced, freeing photographers from the annoying task of prepping and developing their own wet plates on the fly. Dry plates also offered much quicker exposures, allowing cameras to more clearly capture moving objects. In the 1880s, photographer Eadweard Muybridge used dry plate cameras to conduct a series of famous studies of humans and animals in motion. His experiments have since been cited as a crucial step in the development of cinema.

Malignant Etiologies

Leukocytosis may herald a malignant disorder, such as an acute or chronic leukemia ( Figure 3 ) , or a myeloproliferative disorder, such as polycythemia vera, myelofibrosis, or essential thrombocytosis. A previous article on leukemia in American Family Physician reviewed the features and differentiation of malignant hematopoietic disorders.20 Many solid tumors may lead to a leukocytosis in the leukemoid range, either through bone marrow involvement or production of granulocyte colony-stimulating or granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factors1 , 3 , 21 ( Figure 4 ) . Chronic leukemias are most commonly diagnosed after incidental findings of leukocytosis on complete blood counts in asymptomatic patients. Patients with features suggestive of hematologic malignancies require prompt referral to a hematologist/oncologist (Table 5) .3 , 22

Lymphocytosis in a 70-year-old woman with a history of chronic lymphocytic leukemia presenting to the emergency department with a five-day history of subjective fevers, sore throat, and cough. White blood cell count = 147,500 per mm 3 (147.5 × 10 9 per L), hemoglobin = 8.8 g per dL (88 g per L), platelet count = 82,000 per mm 3 (82 × 10 9 per L). White blood cell differential: 96.6% lymphocytes (monomorphic). Note many mature lymphocytes (small nuclei near the size of a red blood cell with thin rim cytoplasm black arrows ) and many smudge cells (white arrows) . [corrected]
