Antigenic competition in the skin is a phenomenon in which the current dermatitis is distributed away from the area of previously existing dermatitis. We experienced antigenic competition-like phenomenon in bullous pemphigoid. Our case differs from typical presentations of antigenic competition, since the responsible antigen was the same.
A 53 year old man presented with symptomatic severe pulmonary valve regurgitation. He underwent a diagnostic catheterization. A heavily calcified pericardium and the pressure tracings illustrate typical features of constrictive pericarditis physiology. This condition is important to recognize given the progressive nature and poor prognosis when left untreated.
Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) is a multi-system disorder, resulted from the mutation in the ATM gene. Its mortality is largely related to some other disorders. Therefore, the management of its complications significantly improves patient quality of life. We studied a pediatric patient with A-T who one of his relatives had A-T.
We present a patient with a rare ectopic retrosternal goitre that underwent a right hemithyroidectomy via an open cervical and video assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). This case report reviews the work-up and radiological features of retrosternal goitre(RSG) and provides an update on the management of RSG.
Soft tissue, bone, and teeth reconstruction is a challenge in patients with maxillary defects due to surgical resections. This article presents a 21-year-old male patient with a history of hemimaxillectomy . Secondary reconstruction was performed using buccal fat pad flap, free iliac crest bone graft, and dental implants
This case series study was performed on 19 patients with facial papule The patients were treated with oral isotretinoin 20 mg for 6 months. Oral isotertinoin was an effective and safe treatment in patients with facial LPP. There were some patients with only facial involvement without FFA or scalp LPP
We present a case of non-leukemic (lymphomatous) variant of HTLV-1 associated adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma in a young woman. Tumor demonstrated strong and diffuse CD30 and PD-1 expression which is very unusual finding in this entity. Very good clinical response was obtained with brentuximab-containing treatment regimen.
Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF)-producing uterine cervical cancer (UCC) is a rare aggressive disease. We report a case of G-CSF-producing UCC treated with chemoradiotherapy. Target-capture sequencing results indicate that G-CSF-producing UCC is genetically distinct from other UCCs, warranting further research to establish specific treatment strategies.
Bosutinib is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) approved for the management of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). TKIs are associated with pulmonary complications but are rarely described with bosutinib. Here, we report the first description of bosutinib-induced interstitial lung disease and pleural effusion, which resolved after the discontinuation of bosutinib.
Various causes of Recurrent Acute pancreatitis have been identified in the past. This report presents a novel case of “recurrent” acute pancreatitis in the setting of superior mesenteric artery syndrome (SMAS). Thus, highlighting SMAS as a rare yet possible cause of recurrent pancreatitis facilitating early diagnosis and prompt treatment.
Drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms is a quite unusual condition related to drug reaction. A case report of sulfasalazine-induced liver failure is described. The patient was submitted to liver transplantation. Liver transplantation is an option when DRESS is associated with acute liver failure, but the prognosis remains poor.
