Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers that metastasize to the bone. bone metastasis is usually osteoblastic, and diffuse osteolytic lesion on presentation is unusual. Here, we are reporting MRI image of patient presented with diffuse osteolytic lesion and found to have metastatic prostate cancer.
A 55-year-old male cancer patient with ICI therapy (PD-1 antibody) started to manifest myasthenia gravis (MG) symptoms, cardiac injury, intermittent third-degree atrioventricular block, and ventricular pause necessitating temporary cardiac pacing. Intravenous steroids and immunoglobulin, pyridostigmine, and mycophenolate mofetil were sequentially initiated and the above symptoms were gradually resolved.
Cesarean section by a transverse uterine fundal incision is applied for patients with placenta previa to reduce blood loss. We describe a case of uterine rupture in a pregnant women with previous cesarean section by its procedure who had recovered from cardiac arrest by multidisciplinary management.
A 57-year-old male known case of diabetes mellitus presented with gradually bilateral decreased vision accompanied by ocular pain two weeks after SARS-CoV-2 infection. Ophthalmic examination and imaging were indicative of bilateral anterior ischemic optic neuropathy and secondary angle-closure glaucoma associated with increased choroidal thickness and hypercoagulable state following COVID-19 infection.
Coronavirus disease is a viral infection affecting different organs with various morbidities and mortality. Vaccines are used to control the disease. COVID-19 vaccines have brought many benefits but their adverse effects should not be ignored. Here, we report a case of Guillain-Barré Syndrome Following Sinopharm COVID-19 Vaccine.
Rupture of ovarian dermoid-cyst is rare case. We report the case of a woman admitted for acute post-traumatic abdominal pain due to ruptured ovarian cyst. The patient was operated and we found a very abundant peritoneal effusion with left ovarian cyst which was broken. we performed a left adnexectomy.
Previous reports of clinical course of Angelman syndrome (AS) described typical histories of choking, dysphagia, and severe pneumonia, but there were few bedridden cases or none requiring laryngotracheal separation surgery (LTS) were existed. We report a severe bedridden case of AS requiring LTS involving a 19.3 Mb deletion on 15q11.2–q14.
A patient was referred to the oral medicine department with symptoms of redness and swelling of the lips and cheek, and intra-oral lesion. Biopsy was taken and laboratory factors were higher than normal, suggesting diagnosis of sarcoidosis. In this study we analyze the oral findings associated with sarcoidosis.
Neurinomas are tumors of Schwann cells of the peripheral nerve sheath. Sacral location is rarely reported especially in spondyloarthritis patients. Herein, we report a case of uncommon pygalgia in a 25-year-old man with history of a non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis and in whom the diagnosis of sacral neurinoma was established.
Fixed drug eruption is a cutaneous drug reaction which recurs at the same site when the individual is exposed to the causative drug, characterized by single or multiple round sharply demarcated erythematous-to-violaceous patches. Here, we report a patient with generalized non-bullous fixed drug eruption following mRNA-based Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.
Infraocclusion of a primary molar is a relatively common occurrence which seldom leads to serious complications, particularly when the succedaneous permanent tooth is present. Despite the relative infrequency of unfavourable outcomes, an infraoccluded primary molar may be associated with other dental anomalies, including hypodontia.
We present a rare case of spontaneous osteodiscitis of the cervical spine complicated by epidural abscess/phlegmon, burst fracture, and spinal cord injury due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacteremia in a patient with a history of intravenous drug use who presented with neck pain.
To date, there is no established treatment of facial numbness or dysaesthesia of unspecified causes. Herein, we report a case of unexplained facial numbness and confirmed hypaesthesia that achieved clinical response to stellate ganglion blockade (SGB). SGB might be an effective treatment of psychological-stress-related facial numbness of unknown origin.
