Eagle syndrome is caused by an elongated styloid process or calcified stylohyoid ligament. The stylocarotid variant with neurologic symptoms is rare and presents a diagnostic challenge. Patients may present with transient ischemic attacks, syncope, or less well defined symptoms like episodic dizziness. We report use of vascular laboratory testing in the management of Eagle syndrome. In one patient, on Doppler ultrasound examination of the ipsilateral temporal artery, the signal was lost with provocative neck flexion...

Background: The diagnosis of cutaneous adversities in the cancer patient is especially difficult, given the complexity of their illness and combination protocols used for the treatment. The present study was undertaken to know the spectrum of cutaneous adversities in patients undergoing chemotherapy and the drug(s) most commonly associated with it. Materials and Methods: A total of 1000 patients with malignancies under chemotherapy in the oncology ward and outpatient department were screened in this observational study from January 2013 to February 2015...

Type 2 leprosy reactions commonly known as erythema nodosum leprosum, but various clinical manifestations of type 2 leprosy reaction were exist. The highlight of this case series was to report various atypical clinical manifestations of type 2 leprosy reaction such as reactive perforating leprosy, erythema multiforme-like reaction, and sweet's syndrome (SS)-like reaction.

Sweet syndrome is a neutrophilic infiltration of the papillary dermis, which may be associated with the presence of unknown malignancies, either haematological or solid tumours, in 1 out of 5 cases, being considered then as a paraneoplastic syndrome. We present the case of a male with a locally advanced gastric cancer whose final diagnosis was led by the prior debut of Sweet syndrome not explained by other causes.

Firstly described by Robert Douglas Sweet in 1964, febrile neutrophilic dermatosis is a disabling, not only cutaneous disorder, clinically characterised by fever and painful erythematous nodules, with a typical background of neutrophilia. Sweet's syndrome (SS) is a chronic inflammatory reactive disorder of unknown cause and incompletely established pathogenesis, although an interplay between genetic and environmental factors, including infections, is likely to occur. A significant part of cases has been demonstrated to be linked with malignancies, especially in the hematologic setting...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to learn how caregivers who are expert in feeding infants with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) successfully feed these infants during withdrawal. DESIGN/SAMPLE: Focus group methodology was used to gather information from self-identified experts from three large regional NICUs. Twelve NICU nurses and speech therapists participated in open-ended, recorded discussions. Detailed flip chart notes were taken, reviewed, and verified by the participants before the group ended...

BACKGROUND: Diversity in the reported prevalence of metabolically healthy obesity (MHO), suggests that modifiable factors may be at play. We evaluated differences in dietary patterns and physical activity between MHO and metabolically unhealthy obesity (MUO). METHODS: Cross-sectional data of 9270 obese individuals (30-69 years) of the Lifelines Cohort Study was used. MHO was defined as obesity and no metabolic syndrome risk factors and no cardiovascular disease history...

Excessive consumption of sweets is a risk factor for metabolic syndrome. A major chemical feature of sweets is fructose. Despite strong ties between fructose and disease, the metabolic fate of fructose in mammals remains incompletely understood. Here we use isotope tracing and mass spectrometry to track the fate of glucose and fructose carbons in vivo, finding that dietary fructose is cleared by the small intestine. Clearance requires the fructose-phosphorylating enzyme ketohexokinase. Low doses of fructose are ∼90% cleared by the intestine, with only trace fructose but extensive fructose-derived glucose, lactate, and glycerate found in the portal blood...

This study examined the correlation of dietary patterns with components of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and inflammation among middle-aged and older adults with MetS in Taiwan. This cross-sectional study used data from the Mei Jau International Health Management Institution in Taiwan between 2004 and 2013. A total of 26,016 subjects aged 35 years and above were selected for analysis. MetS was defined according to the International Diabetes Federation. Three dietary patterns were identified by principal component analysis...

The neutrophilic dermatoses (NDs) comprise a group of heterogeneous disorders characterized by inflammatory skin lesions that histologically show an intense inflammatory infiltrate composed primarily by neutrophils, with no evidence of infection or vasculitis. Although there are distinct clinical differences in the classical lesions of these disorders, many patients have overlapping features. In this review, we describe the clinical aspects of the main NDs, including: Sweet's syndrome, neutrophilic dermatosis of the dorsal hands, pyoderma gangrenosum, erythema elevatum diutinum, subcorneal pustular dermatosis, neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis, rheumatoid neutrophilic dermatitis, neutrophilic panniculitis, and aseptic abscesses including their association with underlying diseases and the differential diagnoses...

Cutaneous drug reactions are adverse reactions to medications that may present with different clinical features, ranging from localized to generalized lesions. In this report we describe a case of an unusual drug reaction, resembling the morphology of Sweet syndrome lesions. The patient had a psychiatric illness and was using thioridazine hydrochloride for one year. He developed infiltrated and grouped erythematous lesions on the elbows and knees three days after commencing multiple drugs (promethazine, haloperidol, mirtazapine and levomepromazine)...

Acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis (Sweet syndrome) is a systemic inflammatory condition usually associated with autoimmune or neoplastic processes and characterised by inflammatory dermatologic lesions such as erythematous plaques and papules associated with fever and leukocytosis. Neurological and ophthalmological involvement is rare. The authors describe an unusual case of Sweet syndrome associated with microscopic polyangiitis presenting with papilloedema, anterior uveitis, and skin rash. Years later, he developed acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy...

BACKGROUND: Hemophagocytosis is well known in cytotoxic cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs), in which it may represent a sign of hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis syndrome (HLHS), and is also typical of cutaneous Rosai-Dorfman disease (cRDD) (without prognostic relevance). Only rarely, has cutaneous hemophagocytosis (CH) been described in other skin conditions. OBJECTIVE: To characterize the clinicopathologic features of CH in skin biopsy specimens from patients with conditions other than CTCL or cRDD...

Sweet's syndrome is a skin manifestation of various systemic infections, drugs, malignancies and autoimmune disorders. There are very few case reports describing the relationship between Sweet's syndrome and non-tubercular mycobacterium infection. Further development of Sweet's syndrome secondary to mycobacterium tuberculosis (active pulmonary tuberculosis) is extremely uncommon and this is the second well established case reported from India. Here we report a forty eight year old man who presented with multiple erythematous and tender plaques over neck, palms and sides of soles...

We describe a 5-month-old boy with clinical and histopathologic presentation of Sweet syndrome. He responded to systemic corticosteroids, with multiple flares on tapering; potassium iodide was added, which provided complete resolution of Sweet syndrome. Potassium iodide has been used in only a few cases, and no standard dosage has been established in children. We discuss calculation of a pediatric dosage for potassium iodide in Sweet syndrome.
