Delayed diagnosis of drug resistance has been a major obstacle to proper management and control of drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB). Expanded access to rapid molecular diagnostics such as Xpert MTB/RIF has been helpful, but has generated confusion about how to interpret genotype-phenotype discordance. Optimal management is not clearly defined for patients with rifampin resistance by Xpert MTB/RIF but rifampin susceptibility by phenotypic testing. To resolve this discrepancy, we performed pyrosequencing of discordant isolates identified at a reference laboratory over a 6-month period...

Leiomyosarcomas are rare neoplasms of the smooth muscles. Primary pulmonary leiomyosarcomas, which constitute approximately 0.2%-0.5% of all primary lung malignancies, are extremely rare and highly lethal. They may originate from the smooth muscle cells of the bronchial wall, the blood vessels, or the pulmonary interstitium, and their rare occurrence, localization, and nonspecific clinical symptoms mean that correct diagnosis and proper management are often delayed. Here, we report a rapidly growing primary pulmonary leiomyosarcoma, which invaded the right atrium, vena cava superior, mediastinum, right hilar area, and left pulmonary artery within 4 months...

A subset of non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCC) harbor active mutations of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). In these, EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs) are recommended as the first-line treatment. Though drug resistance is inevitable, histological transformation to small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) is a rare mechanism for acquired resistance. Here we report one such rare case of histological transformation of pulmonary adenocarcinoma to small cell lung carcinoma in 46 year old male treated with Gefitinib...

Paclitaxel is frequently used for the treatment of patients with nonsmall cell lung cancer. Hypersensitivity reactions (HSRs) have been one of the toxicities observed with administration of paclitaxel. Here, we presented a case of a 49-year-old man with a history of right lung mass proven by biopsy to be a nonsmall cell lung cancer (squamous cell carcinoma) who developed HSR during therapy. In addition to the hypermetabolic primary malignancy, a positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scan showed multiple hypermetabolic skin lesions at several parts of the body...

Spontaneous pneumothorax is a very common medical emergency. Patients are often treated without treating the underlying cause. Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare cystic lung disease. Until recently, diagnosis of LAM was a challenge with nearly 100% mortality in 10 years, but better understanding of the disease through research and better radiological techniques and newer drugs such as sirolimus has improved the survival in such patients. We are presenting a rare case of LAM presenting as a secondary spontaneous pneumothorax treated with sirolimus...

Epitrochlear lymphadenopathy is believed to be associated with distinct etiologies, however the evidence for the same is lacking. We systematically reviewed the reported causes of an enlarged epitrochlear lymph node and compared them over different time periods. Epitrochlear lymphadenopathy was encountered in a wide range of diseases, and we found no association with any particular disease.

REVIEW
Ashok Mahashur
Lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) is a broad terminology which includes acute bronchitis, pneumonia, acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease/chronic bronchitis (AECB), and acute exacerbation of bronchiectasis. Acute LRTIs (ALRTIs) are one of the common clinical problems in community and hospital settings. Management of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) and AECB may pose challenges because of diagnostic difficulty in differentiating infections caused by typical and atypical microorganisms and rising rates of antimicrobial resistance...

Background: There is dearth of literature on asthma-chronic obstructive pulmonary disease overlap syndrome (ACOS) in India. The aim was to compare clinical characteristics between patients with ACOS and non-ACOS COPD and to identify clinical predictors of ACOS in patients with COPD. Methods: We conducted a retrospective study by reviewing data collected from patients performing spirometry at our hospital. Those with postbronchodilator FEV1 /FVC <70% were included in the study...

Background: Pediatric obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a highly prevalent but often neglected disorder. There is paucity of reports on the prevalence of pediatric OSA from India. This study was done to estimate the prevalence of OSA in school children aged 5-10 years and its association with academic performance. Methodology: This school-based cross-sectional epidemiological study was conducted from July 2015 to November 2015. A questionnaire seeking information on sociodemographic variables, school performance, sleeping pattern, and a validated 22-item pediatrics sleep-related breathing disorder (SRBD) scale was distributed to 1820 pupils in three primary schools...

Background: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the fourth most common cause of death in the world, for which smoking is a common cause. It is preferable to diagnose COPD at an earlier stage and to assess its progression so that mortality and morbidity of the disease could be reduced. Hence, we conducted this study to assess parameters of body plethysmography in Indian population where the data are lacking and to assess whether the use of body plethysmography can detect COPD earlier...

Background: Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura (SFTP) arising from the mediastinal pleura may be confused with primary mediastinal tumors. We studied the computerized tomographic (CT) findings of patients with SFTP that could suggest a diagnosis of SFTP. Materials and Methods: At our hospital from January 1995 to June 2012, 39 patients with histologically confirmed SFTP were surgically treated; seven of them abutting the mediastinal pleura. The study group included seven patients aged between 53 and 81 years...
