Penile fracture is a rare condition. It primarily involves the rupture of the corpus cavernosum during erection, which may also affect the corpus spongiosum and urethra. We describe the case of a 35-year-old man who presented with acute penile pain, penile swelling, and a hematuria after a blunt trauma during sexual intercourse. The emergency retrograde urethrogram revealed a rare condition, extravasation of the opaque material from the penile urethra into the cavernous structure. The partial rupture of the corpus cavernosum with urethral disruption was repaired surgically...

Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) is a minimally invasive procedure used for the decompression of portal pressure since the early 1990s. Bacteremia with an infection of the TIPS or endotipsitis is a serious complication with 32% mortality. To date and including the present case, only 56 cases have been reported in the literature. There are concerns regarding underdiagnosis. We report a case of a patient with endotipsitis and recurrent bacteremia treated successfully in our institution. In addition, previous reported cases were reviewed regarding microbiological data and mortality...

Aortic intramural hematoma (IMH) is a variant of acute aortic syndrome, which can be life-threatening. Ascending aorta IMHs, particularly accompanied by penetrating aortic ulcer (PAU), can cause dissection, rupture, and cardiac tamponade. Therefore, early surgical treatment is recommended for IMHs of the ascending aorta. Herein, we present the case of a 60-year-old male patient who was on warfarin sodium treatment and in whom an IMH localized to the arcus aorta was detected incidentally via computed tomography, with the suspicion of pulmonary embolism, and an endovascular stent graft was inserted into the arcus aorta...

REVIEW
Alper Uckun, Ilhan Sezer
Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic inflammatory disease that mainly affects axial joints and the changes in the vertebrae cause typical kyphotic posture. In patients with ankylosing spondylitis, the postural changes, including cervical flexion, decreased lumbar lordosis, posterior rotation of pelvis, hip extension, knee flexion, and plantar flexion of ankle along with kyphosis, may occur in the upcoming terms of the disease and may negatively affect balance. Joint and eye involvements; muscular, vestibular and proprioceptional changes can also affect balance...

REVIEW
Tomoo Kishaba
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is the most common cause of chronic diffuse parenchymal disease of unknown cause. However, IPF patients sometimes develop acute exacerbation (AE), which is a life-threatening condition. The cause of AE of IPF remains unknown. The new criteria for AE of IPF have been proposed last year, wherein both idiopathic and triggered AE were proposed. Triggered AE includes infection, post-procedure and post-operation, drug toxicity, and aspiration. Therefore, detailed history taking is crucial...

There are many kinds of unusual presentations or associations and clinical mimics of acute appendicitis, and definitive diagnosis requires knowledge of the imaging findings in some cases. The unusual presentations and associations of acute appendicitis included in this study are perforated appendicitis, acute appendicitis occurring in hernias, acute appendicitis with cystic endosalpingiosis, intussusception of appendix, and acute appendicitis with pregnancy. We also present uncommon gastrointestinal, urinary and gynecologic clinical mimics of acute appendicitis including anomalous congenital band, duplication cysts, giant Meckel's diverticulitis, inflammatory fibroid polyp, renal artery thrombosis, spontaneous urinary extravasation and OHVIRA syndrome...

Objective: Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is characterized by chronic inflammation. Plasma atherogenic index (PAI) is a valuable marker for the cardiovascular disease and cardiac risk. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role and clinical use of PAI in atherosclerosis and the cardiac risk in SLE patients. Materials and Methods: We included 56 female SLE patients who were selected according to the American College of Rheumatology (1997) diagnosis criteria...

Objective: In our study, the effects of glycosylated protein cross-link breaker, alagebrium was investigated on isolated rat carotid artery using myography. Alagebrium showed vasodilator effect on carotid artery rings; particularly, this effect was significantly increased in endothelium-intact rings. Materials and Methods: To clarify the vasodilator mechanism of alagebrium, different antagonists such as N(G)-Nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME), glibenclamide, indomethacin, metoprolol, propranolol, tetraethylammonium, and calcium channel activator BAYK-8644 were used to reverse this effect...

Objective: The present study aimed to evaluate the performances of the BACTEC MGIT 960 SL DST kit and the GenoType MTBDRsl test for detecting second-line antituberculosis drug resistance in Multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) cases. Materials and Methods: Forty-six MDR-TB strains were studied. Second-line antituberculosis drug resistances were detected using the BACTEC MGIT 960 SL DST kit and the GenoType MTBDRsl test. The Middlebrook 7H10 agar proportion method was used as the reference test...

Objective: Eotaxin-2 and regulated on activation normal T cell expressed and secreted (RANTES) are involved in the eosinophil trafficking in patients with persistent allergic rhinitis (PAR). Clara cell protein 16 (CC16) is an anti-inflammatory protein mainly produced by the epithelial non-ciliated Clara cells. The aim of this study was to investigate the production of CC16 and chemokines eotaxin-2 and RANTES in nasal mucosa of patients with PAR. Materials and Methods: Twenty-one PAR patients and 20 healthy participants were included...

Objective: Thoracoscopic treatment of pulmonary hydatid cyst (PHC) has been considered to be a good treatment option in both children and adults for nearly 25 years. However, there have been very few pediatric studies published during this period. Our goal is to review our results and evaluate the efficiency of thorascopy in pediatric patients. Materials and Methods: The medical records of patients with PHC who were surgically treated between 2005 and 2015 were reviewed...

Objective: The purpose of this study was to compare the use of an intravitreal injection of infliximab and of dexamethasone combined with vancomycin to treat experimental endophthalmitis induced by Staphylococcus epidermidis. Materials and Methods: The study was conducted between March 25 and April 13, 2012. Twenty-five six-month-old healthy rabbits were used, each weighing 2.5-3 kg. The rabbits were randomized into five groups with five animals per group. Endophthalmitis was induced by 0...

Objective: While the incidence of sarcoidosis peaks between 20 and 39 years, it is comparatively low in elderly subjects. We sought to determine whether there are age-dependent differences in the demographic and laboratory characteristics of patients with sarcoidosis. Materials and Methods: We retrospectively collected information from our database using the International Classification of Disease (ICD) diagnostic code D86 between 2008 and 2014. Patients were divided into three groups: 20-39 years old (Group 1), 40-59 years old (Group 2), and 60-80 years old (Group 3)...
