Previous section next section discussion for many years, the identification of a hypoechoic testicular lesion in a young man with a painless palpable mass was considered virtually diagnostic of testicular cancer. viagra overdose Lately, however, a wide range of benign conditions have been found to simulate testicular tumors [3]. cheap viagra from india These conditions include focal and granulomatous orchitis [7], tubular ectasia of the rete testis [8], focal infraction [9], and hemorrhage after blunt trauma [10]. Blue pill herbal viagra With the increasing use of testicular biopsy to retrieve spermatozoa in subfertile men, several reports have described the consequences on the testis of the procedure. buying viagra Harrington et al. viagra for sale [4] compared percutaneous with open biopsy of the testis and found that 10 (29%) of 34 open biopsies showed intratesticular bleeding or a new area of increased echogenicity 1 month after the procedure. viagra o viagra mejor These areas of increased echogenicity were interpreted as parenchymatous scars and were present 6 months after the procedure. viagra for sale us Of 58 percutaneous biopsies, they found evidence of intratesticular bleeding characterized by a hypoechoic mass in four (7%). generic viagra shipped overnight In all four patients, the hematoma resolved in 3-6 months after the procedure. viagra buy Schlegel and su [5] found sonographic evidence of hematoma or resolving inflammation in 82% of patients 3 months after testicular sperm extraction was performed, despite an outwardly normal scrotal examination. At 6 or more months, nine (65%) of 14 patients had changes consistent with parenchymal calcifications or linear scars, and three (21%) had findings consistent with acute inflammation or hematoma. Ron-el et al. cheap viagra from india [6] found focal testicular lesions in 17. viagra spam in yahoo

*All scientific and standard English names in these lists are the names recognized by Crother (2012) for the full species. For subspecies information, click on the individual links to the species of interest. For example, in Louisiana, we have the Eastern American Toad (Anaxyrus americanus americanus). However, on the lists as well as the names on the parish record maps there will be just American Toad (Anaxyrus americanus).

Crother (2008) states that it is difficult to discern what subspecies to place our introduced Brown Anole, Anolis sagrei, as there is evidence of multiple introductions from Cuba and perhaps the Bahamas. I have chosen to not assign a subspecies until there is further clarification.

Although some sources may include the Texas Horned Lizard, Phrynosoma cornutum, in the native fauna of Louisiana, I have chosen not to do so here. Due to the popularity of the species in the pet trade, it is frequently released well outside its native range, especially in large urban areas, and is likely the explanation behind the Louisiana records (Dundee and Rossman 1989). If an established population is found within the state, I will then include the species in this checklist like I have other introduced species.

Dundee and Rossman (1989) included the Alabama Map Turtle (Graptemys pulchra) as native to Louisiana in the eastern Florida Parishes. However, recent research has shown that the formerly reported range reflects a complex of several species largely confined to distinct river catchments (Moulis 2009). The Alabama Map Turtle is thus no longer recognized as native to Louisiana, and is confined to Alabama and extreme northwestern Georgia.

The Pascagoula Map Turtle (Graptemys gibbonsi) was formerly recognized as occurring within the Pearl River drainage basin of Louisiana. However, Ennen et al. (2010) concluded based on genetic and morphological evidence that this form was different enough from the populations in the Pascagoula River drainage basin of Mississippi to warrant its own species. Thus, the new name they proposed was the Pearl River Map Turtle, Graptemys pearlensis. Therefore, this new species is recognized as native to the state and the Pascagoula Map Turtle is no longer recognized as being a resident of Louisiana.
