Neurological manifestations of preeclampsia are serious and very variable. We report the case of a woman at 34 weeks gestation with preeclampsia who developed blindness within hours without alteration of consciousness. The imagery was in favor of posterior reversible encephalopathy. The therapeutic management consisted of emergency fetal extraction, the administration of antihypertensive drugs and magnesium sulfate. The outcome was favorable with complete recovery of visual function. This case reflects the heterogeneity of the clinical presentation of preeclampsia, as the only neurological manifestation was cortical blindness, with no associated consciousness disorder...

BACKGROUND: Inflammation markers have been shown to predict prognosis during cancer including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In particular, C-reactive protein (CRP) and Neutrophil to Lymphocyte Ratio (NLR) have been investigated. The aim of our work is to study the combination of these two markers in optimizing prognostication in advanced NSCLC. METHODS:   We conducted a retrospective study that included all patients diagnosed with primary NSCLC stage IIIB or IV in our respiratory department from January 2005 to January 2013...

Pulmonary resection can be associated with a significant risk of morbidity and mortality, which depends on the nature and extent of pulmonary resection but also on the patient himself. This risk can be apprehended by a preoperative assessment which estimates the immediate operative risk as well as the physiological state and the post-operative quality of life which can require more conservative therapies. Currently, preoperative exploration of a patient is based on various technological tools, which can range from simple electrocardiogram or simple spirometry to a complex exploration such as a cardiorespiratory effort test...
