Soft tissue candidiasis is an opportunistic infection that occurs in immunocompromised patients and must always be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. In this case report, the patient is a 14-year-old boy with acute myeloid leukemia M3-type who presented with numerous soft tissue and hepatosplenic candidal abscesses.
Chronic kidney disease associated with incidental tuberculoma represents one of the rarest conditions occurring worldwide. Among tuberculous patients, only 1% show Central Nervous System involvement. We present a case of 45-year-old male with CKD who presented with seizure, diagnosed to have incidental Tuberculoma
We describe a 63-year-old male with systemic AL amyloidosis with cardiac, renal, and liver involvement. After 4 courses of CyBorD, mobilization with G-CSF was initiated and CART was simultaneously performed for fluid retention. Anasarca gradually disappeared and he underwent autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
Necrotizing pneumonia (NP) is a severe form of lung disease with a high mortality rate. Although NP generally occurs as a complication in community-acquired pneumonia, our case illustrates that NP can occur as a secondary infection even if the clinical course of COVID-19 pneumonia is favorable, particularly in intubated patients.
This work aimed to report a rare case of a non-calcifying Pindborg Tumor involving the right mandible. The absence of calcifications in the calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor presents a diagnostic challenge and prognostic implications. A literature review of the sixteen reported clinical cases of this scarce variant was performed.
A 67-year-old Japanese man was referred to us with numerous papules and nodules. Examination revealed i) IgM-monoclonal proteinemia, ii) amyloid protein deposition around vessels in the dermis and subcutis, and iii) lymphoplasma cells into bone marrow. This report shows that Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia causes papules/nodules through the development of amyloidosis.
Takayasu arteritis is a granulomatous inflammation of the aorta and its major branches.Can present as an isolated, atypical,and/or catastrophic disease.The disease has been reported around the world, although it appears to be more prevalent in Asians.We report case of a 29-year-old pregnant lady presented with TA.
Presentation of High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) in accordance with its usual natural history is a diagnostic clue. In resource-limited settings, distinguishing HAPE from other respiratory illnesses is challenging; especially when the presentation deviates from the natural history. Here we have discussed those three rare presentations of HAPE at 4371m.
Disseminated adenovirus infections in patients who received chemotherapy alone for lymphoma are extremely rare, however, should be included in differential diagnosis for those who received T cell suppressive agents. We report a fatal case of disseminated adenovirus disease in a patient who had received chemotherapy and presented with hypoxia
Brugada syndrome is a genetic arrhythmia syndrome characterized by a coved type of ST segment elevation in the ECG.The patients are usually asymptomatic, with unmasking of the disease under certain conditions.We are reporting the case of such a patient who was diagnosed during an attack of dengue fever
Trapezium fracture is a rare condition that goes undetected and exposes to long-term comorbidities : chronic pain and rhizartrosis. In presence of suggestive clinical presentation with a normal radiograph, CT scan should be considered. Therapeutic guidelines are not well established due to the lack of series reported in the literature.
Herpes Simplex Encephalitis is the most common cause of infectious encephalitis. Our case is of a 75-year-old woman who presented with dysuria and altered mental status. Our case addresses the difficulties in diagnosis and highlights the importance of early recognition of HSE and its associated neurological sequelae.
Myopathy-related symptoms are rare manifestations of hypothyroidism. Clinicians should consider hypothyroid myopathy as one of possible diagnosis for patients with proximal weaknesses. We report a 34-year-old woman, presenting with a new atypical musculoskeletal manifestation of hypothyroidism mimicking polymyositis.
