A young Amerasian woman developed transient ischemic attacks related to a patent foramen ovale. Her background personal story, involving being willed from her dying grandmother to a US photographer and attempting to find her serviceman father, has led to a book and a TED talk.

Most teams in hospital medicine are ad hoc, meaning that the teams vary in participants. Ad hoc teams can be found in academic teaching hospitals where team members change across shifts and rotations. Due to varying team membership, these teams face significant hurdles, because they lack an opportunity to develop a team identity, shared mental models, and trust. This article discusses facilitators and barriers to effective functioning of ad hoc teams. Communication, conflict management, power, and leadership are areas that either serve as facilitators or barriers to positive team function...

We present a case of a 36-year-old man who developed rapid onset of proptosis and orbital compartment syndrome resulting in no light perception vision. He was treated with surgery and subsequent rituximab therapy with some recovery of vision and motility. Though the range of presentations of idiopathic orbital inflammation is broad, such rapid evolution of proptosis with complete vision loss is very uncommon.

Jason Chung-Chieh Lo, David Nguyen, T Keller Matthews
Chronic refractory angina pectoris (AP) affects 600,000 to 1,800,000 Americans, with approximately 50,000 new cases annually. A recent study revealed long-term mortality of refractory AP to be lower than previously reported, with >70% of patients living >9 years. Treating AP can improve quality of life. We describe a patient with refractory AP who underwent a successful stellate ganglion block for symptom control.

A previously healthy 3-month-old girl was admitted to the hospital after 1 day of fever, decreased oral intake, irritability, lethargy, and decreased activity. Examination disclosed a bulging anterior fontanelle, tachycardia (heart rate of 160 beats/minute), and urate crystals in her diaper. Lumbar puncture revealed meningitis. She was treated with broad-spectrum antibiotics and fluids. A urine culture was negative, but blood and cerebrospinal fluid cultures came back positive for Salmonella species, nontyphoid...

Chemotherapy-induced acral erythema has been a known side effect of intravenous dosing but has not been reported with oral therapy. Herein we describe two patients receiving treatment with low-dose oral methotrexate who presented with acral erythema. Clinicians and rheumatologists should be aware of this potentially serious side effect of oral chemotherapy in various patient populations. This complication related to methotrexate, though rare, should be anticipated in patients on multiple medications who develop mucocutaneous toxicities...

Reid Green, Meghan Woody, Anthony C Soldano, Erin Madden
Malignant tumors composed of both epithelial and melanocytic populations are exceedingly rare. Because the etiology of these malignant tumors is not yet defined, several authors have argued for the continued cataloging of these lesions. We present a 67-year-old man with a suspicious-appearing lesion on the right forearm; initial biopsy was consistent with a pigmented basal cell carcinoma. On re-excision, a collision of malignant melanoma and basal cell was identified.

Secondary involvement of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract by renal cell carcinoma is rare. We undertook a retrospective review of our institution's pathology records from January 2006 to July 2017 and identified eight cases of GI tract involvement by renal cell carcinoma. Sites of involvement included stomach, duodenum, jejunum, ileum, and cecum. Pertinent clinical information was obtained from electronic medical records. The interval from primary resection to identification of GI involvement was often prolonged, averaging 6 years, and mimicked primary GI tract malignancies, with presentations including GI bleeding, abdominal pain, and obstruction...

Neuroendocrine tumors are a rare subset of breast carcinomas. Commonly, platinum-based doublet is used as a systemic treatment option for high-grade neuroendocrine carcinomas from lung, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary origins. In comparison to other breast cancers, neuroendocrine carcinomas have unique genomic features and different treatment strategies. We present a patient with high-grade neuroendocrine carcinoma of the breast who had a successful and durable response to the cyclin D-dependent kinase (CDK) 4/6 inhibitor palbociclib in conjunction with endocrine therapy...

Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a rare syndrome of widespread inflammation due to massive amounts of cytokines released from activated macrophages. The most common trigger for HLH is infection from a virus, most commonly Epstein-Barr virus. Here we report an adult case of this rare and life-threatening syndrome.

We report the first case of a 34-year-old woman with histiocytoid Sweet syndrome (HSS) that was successfully treated with etanercept. HSS is a rare histological variant of acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis that was described by Requena et al in 2005. It is distinguished by dermal infiltration by mononuclear cells with a histiocytic morphology. To date there are three reported cases of the use of etanercept in the treatment of classic febrile neutrophilic dermatosis but none targeting this disease variant...

A 61-year-old woman with rheumatoid arthritis on chronic immunosuppression presented with fever. Laboratory studies demonstrated multiorgan failure with pancytopenia, elevation in liver function studies, and an elevated ferritin level, with a diagnosis of hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis confirmed on bone marrow biopsy. After initial treatment with chemotherapy, fungal blood cultures grew Histoplasma , prompting initiation of antifungal therapy, which resulted in successful treatment of Histoplasma -associated hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis...

Though hemorrhaging pelvic arteries can be treated with transcatheter arterial embolization, difficulty in selection of injured arteries can lead to increased morbidity and mortality due to embolization of untargeted vasculature and prolonged time to hemostasis, resulting in unnecessary ischemic injury and prolonged hemorrhage. This report describes a balloon occlusion technique utilized in the setting of an unselectable hemorrhaging obturator artery.

A 40-year-old woman presented to our stroke center for a left middle cerebral artery embolic occlusion. This was successfully treated with mechanical thrombectomy using a stent retriever and balloon guide catheter aspiration. The patient was discharged home in good condition on clopidogrel but returned 2 months later with a contralateral right middle cerebral artery embolic occlusion. This was also successfully treated, this time with a stent retriever and local aspiration (Sol-Arc technique). She was once again discharged in good condition but with warfarin and an implanted loop recorder...
