zo·na re·tic·u·la·ris

the inner layer of the cortex of the adrenal gland, where the cell cords anastomose in a netlike fashion.

zona reticularis

the innermost part of the adrenal cortex, which borders on the adrenal medulla part of the gland. It acts in consort with the zona fasciculata in producing various sex hormones and glucocorticoids.

The tonic electromyogram suppression of REM sleep is the result of active inhibition of motor activity originating in the perilocus coeruleus region and terminating in the anterior horn cells via the medullary reticularis magnocellularis nucleus.

In contrast, physicians caring for aPL-positive patients recognize other associated complications that include livedo reticularis, valvular heart disease, or thrombocytopenia, at times in the absence of more typical vascular or pregnancy events (Table 2).
SAN FRANCISCO -- It's no secret that livedo reticularis can be a symptom of antiphospholipid syndrome, yet many clinicians still miss the diagnostic implications of this peculiar rash, Dr.
Results of this study revealed (1) there were an increase in the total areas of T treated animals in comparison to the control and other experimental groups, (2) the total lengths of each hormonally treated tissue showed an increase in size of DHT treated t issue verses control, but differences of T and AED compared with control remained insignificant, (3) upon analysis of the zona glomerulosa (Z1) and zona fasciculata (Z2) the data demonstrated that there were significant increase in animals treated with DHT and AED in comparison to control and T treated animals, (4) finally, statistical analysis performed on measurements of the zona reticularis (Z3) indicated notable increases only in the AED exposed animals.
Features of APS include hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, venous and arterial occlusions, livedo reticularis, pulmonary manifestations, recurrent fetal loss, neurologic manifestations (stroke, transverse myelitis, Guillain-Barre syndrome); and a positive Coombs test, anticardiolipin antibodies, or lupus anticoagulant activity (1).
The varied nomenclature of this disease includes Lichen ruber acuminatus verrucosus et reticularis, porokeratosis striata lichenoides, lichen ruber moniliformis.
Incidences of nephropathy and, in the adrenal cortex, hypertrophy of the zona glomerulosa and atrophy of the zona reticularis were significantly increased at 2,000x compared with controls (see Supplemental Material, Table S9), with severity increasing with dose for the adrenal observations.
Ketamine acts on nucleus reticularis gigantocellularis in brain stem (7) and binds with phencyclidine site of N-methyl D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor -gated calcium channel and noncompetitively inhibits the NMDA receptors.
Macular or papular erythematous eruption, urticaria, subcutaneous skin-colored or erythematous nodules, livedo reticularis, and erythema multiformelike eruption may also be seen.
