Keratoconus (KC), though one of the most common corneal degeneration, still continues to be a mystique regarding its pathogenesis, diagnosis, associations, and management; with newer discoveries and evolutions being reported. We report, what we believe to be another new association of KC- Cogan Reese syndrome with secondary glaucoma. A 32-year-old male, diagnosed as bilateral KC, presented for examination. Unilateral Cogan-Reese syndrome and associated secondary glaucoma was identified. These associations had been missed by previous ophthalmologists...

Immune-mediated sensorineural hearing loss may complicate systemic autoimmune diseases. We have previously reported the presence of antibodies directed against inner ear antigens in patients with Cogan syndrome, a disease characterized by sudden hearing loss and interstitial keratitis. Such autoantibodies cross-react with an epitope of SSA/Ro60 protein. Anti-Ro/SSA antibodies in pregnant women cross the placenta and reach the fetal tissues inducing an immune-mediated damage of the cardiac conduction system...

Importance. Rituximab was not effective in ameliorating the hearing loss in a patient with atypical Cogan's syndrome. Observations. We report the case of a patient who developed acute bilateral uveitis and sensorineural hearing loss. A diagnosis of atypical Cogan's syndrome was made. The patient's hearing loss did not improve despite high dose steroids and azathioprine. Rituximab was administered given a recent report of its efficacy in a patient with refractory disease; however, our patient's hearing loss did not improve...

BACKGROUND: After an index case of contrast-associated compartment syndrome, an urban hospital instituted a protocol limiting high-speed injection to intravenous (IV) lines started proximal to the forearm and testing those lines before contrast injection. OBJECTIVE: In this article, we estimate the safety and efficacy of high-speed injection using this protocol in patients with IV lines inserted under ultrasound guidance. METHODS: In an ambispective study, we enrolled prospective cohorts of ED patients requiring high-speed radiographic contrast media injection (≥3...

BACKGROUND: Iridocorneal endothelial (ICE) syndrome occurs mainly in young and middle-aged women and typically presents as a unilateral disease characterized by abnormalities of the iris and corneal endothelium. While the ICE syndrome is known to be associated with glaucoma and bullous keratopathy, to our knowledge, only two cases of ICE syndrome complicated with cystoid macular edema (CME) have been reported to date. In this paper, we report a case of ICE syndrome complicated with CME treated at our institution...

BACKGROUND: The nosological assignment of congenital ocular motor apraxia type Cogan (COMA) is still controversial. While regarded as a distinct entity by some authorities including the Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man catalog of genetic disorders, others consider COMA merely a clinical symptom. METHODS: We performed a retrospective multicenter data collection study with re-evaluation of clinical and neuroimaging data of 21 previously unreported patients (8 female, 13 male, ages ranging from 2 to 24 years) diagnosed as having COMA...

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) encompasses disease of all arteries of the body except the coronary arteries. The main etiology whatever the patient's age is atherosclerosis. Different etiologies can induce PAD especially when patients are younger than 50 years old and have no cardiovascular risk factors (smoking, hypertension, diabetes…). PAD that appears before 50 years old can be named juvenile PAD (JPAD) although there is no consensus about the definition. The aim of this work is to present the different etiologies of JPAD according to their hereditary, acquired or mixed origins...

Frail individuals are at higher risk of adverse outcomes, and need identification and priority access to Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA). We prospectively collected data on new referrals to our day hospital. Levels of frailty were measured with the SHARE Frailty Instrument for Primary Care (SHARE-FI). Of 257 patients assessed (90 men, 167 women), 110 (43%) were non-frail, 66 (26%) pre-frail and 81 (32%) frail. Mean age was 82 years for the non-frail, 83 for the pre-frail and 84 for the frail. Forty-one percent of the frail reported two or more falls in the preceding year, compared to 38% of the pre-frail and 21% of the non-frail (P for trend = 0...

Cogans syndrome is a rare systemic inflammatory disease characterized by a combination of audiovestibular and ocular symptoms. In some cases, systemic complications occur with vascular inflammation. Aortitis and large vessel vasculitis are the most common forms, but medium-sized and small vessel involvement has also been described. The autoimmune reaction can lead to blindness, deafness and in worst case death, if these patients remain untreated or if treatment is delayed. There is no specific blood test or imaging method available and the diagnosis is clinical...

Cogan's syndrome is a rare idiopathic inflammatory disease with involvement of the eye and inner ear. This syndrome can be associated with aortic root vasculitis. We report the case of a young man with a history of uveitis and bilateral hearing loss who presented with proximal aortic vasculitis and dilatation after aortic valve replacement. Cogan's syndrome was diagnosed on the basis of large artery vasculitis with typical vestibuloauditory and ocular involvement. The patient underwent successful a Bentall operation after aortic valve replacement...

Chronic chest pain is a challenge, and serratus anterior muscle pain syndrome (SAMPS) is often overlooked. We have developed an ultrasound-guided technique for infiltrating local anesthetics and steroids in patients with SAMPS. In 8 patients, the duration of chronic pain was approximately 19 months. Three months after treatment, all patients had experienced a significant reduction in pain. Infiltration for SAMPS confirms the diagnosis and provides adequate pain relief.
