Although children are less affected by Novel coronavirus disease 2019 than adults, it should not be missed, especially in those with underlying diseases. Herein, we report a patient with primary antibody deficiency, who was affected with COVID-19. This infection could be presented mildly in patients with immunodeficiency.
We report a case of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) induced by diffuse fear of the COVID-19 pandemia and aggravated to ventricular fibrillation. After succesfull resuscitation the patient developed temporarily a J-wave after event. Though potentially live threatening in the acute phase both J-wave and TTC are reversible with receding of edema.
A female presented with Palmoplantar Pustular psoriasis (PPP) followed by Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) on bilateral legs. Complete remission was achieved with methotrexate and prednisolone. Both dermatoses have female preponderance, similar immuno-pathologic mechanisms and rapid treatment response, suggests a possible etiological relation between the two and not a coincidental finding.
Nemaline myopathies (NEM) are heterogeneous congenital muscle disorders that cause skeletal muscle weakness and in the most severe cases, death.We describe a neonatal patient presenting with hypotonia and muscle biopsy showing nemaline myopathy. Genetic testing identified a de novo variant c.43G>C (p.Asp15His) in theTPM3 gene not previously described
COVID-19 infection can present with thrombotic manifestations like PE with no ultrasonographic evidence of lung parenchymal affection. BLUE protocol provides excellent step by step approach for diagnosis of acute dyspnoea. Adding FECHO to BLUE protocol complete the picture and help making solid diagnosis especially in sub-massive and massive PE
We present a case of postpartum women who collapsed immediately after delivery with probable diagnosis of amniotic fluid embolism. This is a rare but fatal condition and was managed with supportive measures. Suspicion of amniotic fluid embolism should be considered in any postpartum collapse if no obvious cause is known.
we report a 24 years old female patient, who presented with features of crushing syndrome. upon evaluation, she was found to have ectopic Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH)–dependent Cushing’s syndrome due to a thymic tumor. histopathology confirmed ACTH secreting tumor. she was treated With Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery and had a successful recovery.
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is n emerging infectious disease. There may be a correlation between heatstroke and severity of COVID-19. In cases where heat stress caused by COVID-19 promotes organ failure, the proactive regulation of body temperature may be considered as an effective treatment option.
Laryngeal injury is a life-threatening risk in contact sports. Exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO) can occur as a result of trauma. Athletes can return to monitored training within weeks of laryngeal surgery. Due to the rarity and complexity of laryngeal trauma in sport, effective management requires a multidisciplinary approach.
DS-ALL patients have a higher rate of relapse and treatment-related mortality. We describe a DS-ALL patient with late bone marrow relapse who was treated per British ALL R3 reinduction chemotherapy. The patient remained in remission for approximately two years after therapy was discontinued due to severe systemic infections.
A 13-month-old healthy patient without COVID-compatible symptoms and no known sick contacts presented to the emergency department with an esophageal coin. New institutional policy requiring pre-operative SARS-CoV-2 testing was positive for the virus. Additional precautions were taken in the operating room to successfully prevent transmission of the virus.
The atrial septal aneurysm is a rare cardiac abnormality that is usually detected during routine echocardiography or evaluation of cases with thromboembolism. We report a 62 years old male who presented with abdominal pain and bleeding per rectum found to have ischemic colitis and atrial septal aneurysm on transesophageal echocardiogram.
Background The theory of “hit and run” raises a possibility of novel COVID19-associated Parkinsonism cases, as well as worsening of symptoms in patients with pre-existing Parkinson’s Disease (PD). Aim/method To demonstrate that the COVID19 infection may lead to long lasting immunological and neurological changes at PD patients.
