Umbilical artery catheterisation is frequently performed in preterm or critically ill newborn infants for invasive monitoring of blood pressure and blood sampling for laboratory tests. It is associated with well-known complications like catheter-related infections, thromboembolic events and aneurysmal formation of the aorta. In this report, we present another major complication of umbilical artery catheterisation: umbilical artery perforation. This complication occurred in a prematurely born infant and resulted in severe haemorrhagic shock, subsequent renal failure and severe periventricular leukomalacia...

Mandreker Bahall, Manisha Santlal
A 23-year-old East Indian woman with no significant medical history, except a depot-norethisterone enanthate injection taken 3 weeks prior to admission, presented with a gradually worsening headache for the past 5 days. She had no fever, vomiting, neck stiffness, focal weakness or rash, and examination was unremarkable with no focal neurological deficits. Vasculitic, thrombophilia and sepsis screens were normal. A brain CT scan showed a left parietal lobe venous infarct, secondary to a venous dural sinus thrombosis, with MRI and Magnetic Resonance Venogram (MRV) confirming a signal void...

Moni Roy, Ashish Kumar Roy, Sharjeel Ahmad
Parvimonas species are anaerobic, Gram-positive cocci that are a constituent of normal oral and gastrointestinal flora. We present a case of right knee joint septic arthritis due to Parvimonas micra in an immunocompromised patient. A 61-year-old male renal and pancreatic transplant recipient on immunosuppressive therapy was admitted to our hospital due to intense pain, joint swelling and inability to move his right knee over the past 9 months. After synovial fluid was drawn, cultures were positive for P. micra, an anaerobic pathogen that is part of the flora of the oral cavity...

A 12.6-year-old girl presented with a 2-month history of headache, recurrent vomiting and 5 kg weight loss. She had been receiving recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) replacement therapy at a dose of 0.035 mg/kg for the past 10 months, due to short stature. Investigations before initiating rhGH, including brain MRI, had been normal. Physical examination revealed a nystagmus and a mildly elevated arterial blood pressure. Brain MRI revealed a lesion in the posterior aspect of the medulla oblongata, adjacent to the foramen of Magendie...

Chrystal Chan, James Mark Roberts
Ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH)-related Cushing's syndrome can lead to multiple complications including severe immunosuppression. If the ACTH-secreting tumour cannot be found, definitive treatment is surgical adrenalectomy, typically followed by glucocorticoid replacement. Here, we present a case of fulminant respiratory failure secondary to coinfection with Pneumocystis jirovecii and cytomegalovirus in a patient with ectopic ACTH-dependent Cushing's syndrome with occult primary. Due to significant deconditioning, she was unable to undergo definitive adrenalectomy and instead underwent percutaneous microwave ablation of the adrenal glands...

A 70-year-old Indian woman, who had undergone primary bilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA) for rheumatoid arthritis 10 months prior, presented with 10 days history of pain, swelling and erythema over both knees with pus discharging from the right knee. She had type 2 diabetes mellitus and was on long-term steroid, leflunomide and antitumour necrosis factor therapy for rheumatoid arthritis. Her clinical and laboratory features were suggestive of a haematogenous periprosthetic joint infection (PJI). The final diagnosis of bilateral Salmonella typhi PJI was made based on culture reports...

Antenatal Bartter syndrome is a rare condition that can present with different clinical features. These features include early onset maternal polyhydramnios, failure to thrive, prematurity and nephrocalcinosis.We are presenting this 20-day-old girl who had an antenatal history of polyhydramnios. She developed persistent non-bilious vomiting that was associated with constipation soon after birth. She presented with failure to thrive and features suggestive of intestinal obstruction. On the initial evaluation, she was noted to have hypokalaemic, hyponatraemic metabolic alkalosis...

#19
Daniel Bigman, Sindhura Kunaparaju, Bradford Bobrin
Ketamine is a standard anaesthetic drug that has been studied as a possible treatment for acute suicidal ideation. Aside to the potential psychotropic effects of ketamine, a Cochrane review reported that available studies suggest a modest effect of ketamine for chronic pain months to years after surgical intervention. We present a patient with acute suicidal ideation who required immediate inpatient psychiatric admission in the setting of concurrent chronic pain on cannabinoids which could not be prescribed within our inpatient hospital setting...
