  • Welcome to the online home of the Oman Medical Journal offering free access and publishing to all authors and researchers 

    Welcome from the Editor-in-Chief

    Prof. Ibrahim Al-Zakwani BSc, MSc, MS, PhD

    Welcome to the home of the Oman Medical Journal. The OMJ was established in 1984 and has been published under the Oman Medical Specialty Board since 2007. Initially, we started with one issue a year, which later increased to four and then to six in 2011. We currently publish over 100 articles a year covering all aspects of medicine and healthcare. These are selected by our committed and multi-disciplinary Editorial Board.

    We take a no barriers approach to publishing and are proud to offer the journal free to all those who wish to read it and charge no publication fees to authors/researchers. We publish a wide range of articles, including original research, case reports, and preliminary studies. We also publish editorials and letters intended to inform and spark debate about key medical issues. We do this to complement OMSB’s mission to provide quality healthcare through quality medical education. As part of this commitment, we are listed and indexed in over 35 databases, and this number continues to grow.

    We have added some exciting new features to this website. We now offer our authors the opportunity to publish their articles as soon as they are accepted with our preprint facility.  

    On behalf of the entire OMJ team, thank you for visiting the online home of the OMJ. We hope you will find this site to be a helpful resource. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, concerns, or comments you have.

    Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia: A Late Presentation of Post-COVID-19 Syndrome

    Emad Al Khoufi, Bader Al-Muhainy, Kefah Algadeeb, Mortadah Alsalman

    COVID-19 is a severe respiratory disease with a spectrum of clinical presentations and complications. Warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia (WAIHA) is increasingly recognized in patients with COVID-19 either while infected or shortly after infection. We report a 36-year-old male with clinical and laboratory findings consistent with WAIHA. His medical history was significant for COVİD-19 infection three months before presentation. He was initially resistant to steroids but had substantial improvement following initiation of rituximab, with complete recovery thereafter. Therefore, serial assessment of complete blood cell count parameters and hemolysis markers post-COVID-19 infections is warranted for early detection and prompt treatment.

    Angiomatoid Fibrous Histiocytoma in an Elderly Male: An Unusual Presentation of a Rare Case

    Abhay Vilas Deshmukh, Vitaladevuni B Shivkumar, Manisha Atram, Mithun Patruji Bhoyar, Nitin M Gangane

    Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma (AFH) is a rare soft tissue neoplasm of low malignant potential often misdiagnosed clinically. It typically occurs in the superficial soft tissues of the extremities in children and young adults. It is characterized by recurrences and rarely metastases. Surgery remains the mainstay of management. Here, we present a rare case report of AFH in a 65-year-old male diagnosed using fine needle aspiration as spindle cell sarcoma. The patient underwent wide local excision. The patient is under follow-up. There is no evidence of metastases, and the patient is disease free three-years post-excision.

    Successful Management of Maternal Left Atrial Myxoma in Pregnancy

    Nihal Al Riyami, Asha Nair, Hatim Al Lawati, Adil H. Al Kindi

    A 29-year-old woman (gravida 3, para 2) presented at 28 weeks+2 days of gestation with a two-months history of dyspnea associated with orthopnea and occasional palpitations. On transthoracic echocardiography, she was diagnosed with a 3.2 × 2.7 cm left atrial myxoma. The patient underwent open surgical resection at 30 weeks of gestation. She had an uneventful postoperative recovery and was discharged on the ninth day. At 41 weeks of gestation, she gave birth by cesarean to a healthy baby of normal weight. Both the mother and the baby were discharged in stable condition.
