In this case report we present a case of a eight years old boy who presented with progressive orbital cellulitis causing endangered vision secondary to carious primary maxillary molar. The patient was appropriately managed with intravenous antibiotics, steroids and surgical decompression. Significant morbidity was overcome by multi-specialty team approach.
A man with chronic kidney disease (CKD) under hemodialysis was diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL). He received arsenic trioxide as a single agent and achieved complete molecular remission without severe adverse events. Arsenic trioxide (ATO) can be used safely and effectively for APL with CKD
Abstract An 80-year-old male patient developed exertional dyspnea and bilateral peripheral oedema. Investigations including an echocardiogram, cardiac computed tomography and cardiac magnetic resonance suggested calcific pericardial thickening encapsulating the heart with associated constriction. This is an interesting case as constriction was associated with a large chylopericardium of unknown cause
An adult male with alcoholic cirrhosis presented with acute blood loss anemia, hypotension and a painful bruise over his body's left side. He denied any trauma or falls. Computed tomography of the chest showed left chest wall hematoma. Emergent angiography with successful embolization of the left intercostal artery was performed.
IntroductionGraft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is a potentially serious complication of allogenic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT), but patients who develop GVHD also have a low incidence rate of leukemia recurrence, suggesting a graft-versus-leukemia effect due to the donor lymphocytes.1 This effect has also been suggested in solid tumors. In the case here, cervical cytology transformed from squamous cell carcinoma to negative for intraepithelial lesion or malignancy (NILM), possibly due to a graft-versus-tumor (GVT) effect following allo-SCT. The cervical cytology has continued changing, although the dose of immunosuppressant likely also has an effect. Here we describe our experience in this case and review the literature.
Abdominal pregnancy is a very rare, life-threatening form of ectopic pregnancy, in which implantation occurs within the peritoneal cavity. The advantages of a laparoscopic approach over a laparotomy in this setting include a reduced estimated blood loss, a shorter operating time, reduced analgesic requirements, shorter hospital stay and convalescence.
A case of a 42-year-old woman, Para 3 who had an unplanned pregnancy despite bilateral tubal ligation for contraception, and Novasure® endometrial ablation for persistent Heavy Menstrual Bleeding (HMB). The pregnancy was complicated by missed miscarriage at 14 weeks and placenta accreta. This is an uncommon event.

Family-based treatment, the recommended treatment for adolescents and young adults with eating disorders, it is often not accessible for families. The aim of this case report is to describe outcomes of two patients treated virtually with an augmented team approach to provide preliminary evidence of feasibility and efficacy.
Doege Potter syndrome is a rare paraneoplastic clinical entity. A 31-year-old woman consulted with a right indurated malar mass and hypoglycemia. Blood test showed a non-insulin-mediated hypoglycemia. CT scan revealed a solid tumor from the right temporal region with liver metastasis. The histopathological diagnosis revealed a solitary fibrous tumor.
We report a case of P. yeei CAPD-peritonitis in a patient experiencing repeated episodes of peritonitis. P. yeei, an emerging opportunistic pathogen, takes advantage of specific virulence factors and peculiar circumstances. We discuss the exogenous or endogenous microbial source of the peritonitis and guidelines to decrease its occurrence.
Described is an atypical presentation of a rare condition. It highlights the importance of thorough algorithm of medical and family history, physical examination, appropriate investigations and perioperative workup and for surgery. This case raises the awareness that a lateral neck mass (or lateral ectopic thyroid mass) can be benign.
This report describes the case of a 53-year-old man with SARS-CoV-2 infection and occurrence of complete unilateral sensorineural hearing loss, adding new evidence to the association between COVID-19 and hearing loss. Whether this is the result of endothelial cell dysfunction in the cochlea or central auditory pathways remains unclear.
