Mutations of the COPA gene cause an immune dysregulatory disease characterised by polyarticular arthritis and progressive interstitial lung disease with pulmonary haemorrhages. We report the case of a young girl that presented at age 3 with polyarticular arthritis, chronic cough and high titer rheumatoid factor. Radiologic imaging showed interstitial lung disease with tree-in-a-bud nodules and air-filled cysts. Targeted genetic analysis of COPA gene showed the reported c.698G>A mutation. The patient was lost to follow up for 3years during which therapy was discontinued with the development of joint damage and deformities...

BACKGROUND: Bronchopulmonary sequestration is a congenital abnormality of the primitive foregut. In adults, the typical age at presentation is 20-25 years. CASE REPORT: A 64-year-old female was referred for evaluation of an 8 × 6-cm right lower lobe cystic lesion. Her medical history was significant for recurrent right lower lobe pneumonia requiring multiple hospitalizations. Her physical examination was significant for crackles at the right lung base. Computed tomography (CT) of the chest with contrast showed cystic changes with thickened septation of the medial segment of the right lower lobe lacking distinct visceral pleura and with arterial supply from the anomalous branch of the thoracic aorta arising near the celiac trunk...

Hydatid disease is an endemic parasitosis that results from the ingestion of echinococcosis tapeworm eggs. This condition leads to the formation of cysts, mainly in the liver and lungs, and causes life-threatening complications. Cardiac involvement represents only 0.5-2% of the localizations. We report a rare case of a pulmonary cyst embolism that required emergency surgical intervention.

Germline mutations in the novel tumor suppressor gene FLCN are responsible for the autosomal dominant inherited disorder Birt-Hogg-Dubé (BHD) syndrome that predisposes to fibrofolliculomas, lung cysts and spontaneous pneumothorax, and an increased risk for developing kidney tumors. Although the encoded protein, folliculin (FLCN), has no sequence homology to known functional domains, x-ray crystallographic studies have shown that the C-terminus of FLCN has structural similarity to DENN (differentially expressed in normal cells and neoplasia) domain proteins that act as guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs) for small Rab GTPases...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome (BHDS) is a rare hereditary disease that presents with multiple lung cysts and pneumothorax (PTX). Although some reports propose that findings from chest computed tomography enable one to distinguish BHDS from primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP), it is still unclear whether clinical features are useful for identifying patients with suspicion of BHDS from those with PTX. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of patients with PTX who underwent video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery at Nissan Tamagawa Hospital from January 2012 to December 2015...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a diffuse cystic lung disease that occurs in women of childbearing age. LAM can be diagnosed on a clinical basis in patients with typical high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) patterns and at least one other corroborating disease feature, such as chylothorax, angiomyolipoma, tuberous sclerosis complex or elevated serum vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-D. However, patients who do not meet these criteria require tissue confirmation for a definitive diagnosis, and the utility of methods that are less invasive than surgical lung biopsy, such as transbronchial lung biopsy (TBLB), are not well studied...

Echinococcus granulosus is the causative agent of cystic echinococcosis (CE), which is distributed all around the world. CE is one of the most important global parasitic infectious diseases, both in humans and animals. This parasite causes hydatid cysts that can be lodge at different organs of host such as liver, lung even in heart and brain which may lead to death. Presently, numerous scolicidal chemical agents have been administrated for inactivation of the hydatid cyst contents. Because of increasing resistance and adverse effects of medications include abnormalities of liver function, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and headache; there is a need to find alternative therapies either with the least or without side effects...

Thymic carcinoma is a rare, aggressive disease with a low 5-year survival rate. The most common histological neoplastic thymic tumor subtype is squamous cell. We describe an interesting case of a 39-year-old woman who presented with mucinous adenocarcinoma that originated in the thymus and was treated via radical resection and venoplasty of the superior vena cava (SVC). Macroscopically, the resected tumor contained a solid region and multiple cysts with abundant mucin. Microscopic examination showed a papillary growth pattern of goblet cells with round nuclei...

An 11-yr-old dromedary camel (Camelus dromedarius) at a zoo in south Florida presented with diarrhea while being treated with enrofloxacin and dexamethasone for a chronic skin condition. Three weeks after initiation of therapy with dexamethasone, the camel developed diarrhea, which worsened despite treatment with antibiotics. The animal became increasingly debilitated, developed hemorrhagic diarrhea, declined rapidly over the next 3 days, and died despite aggressive fluid therapy and supportive care. Histologic examination revealed intralesional protozoal tissue cysts consistent with Toxoplasma gondii in the intestines, lungs, and liver, as well as lymphoid depletion of the spleen suggesting immunosuppression...

Congenital cyst adenoid malformation (CCAM) is a rare congenital malformation occurring in approximately 1-4 in 100,000 births. It is classified into five subtypes with type 1 CCAM is most common subtype. The diagnosis of CCAM is usually made in infancy, and it is rare in adolescents and adults. We report a 15-year-old female, who presented in pediatric outpatient department with a history of recurrent cough since infancy. On the basis of clinical examination, provisional diagnosis of asthma was considered and patient was started on inhaled corticosteroid and long-term β2 agonist...

BACKGROUND: Benign metastatic leiomyoma (BML) is an extremely rare disease. Although uterine leiomyomas are benign histologically, they can metastasize to distant sites. While the incidence is very low, the lung is the organ most frequently affected by BML. Pulmonary BML usually presents as numerous well-defined nodules of various sizes, while the cavitary or cystic features in the nodules are rarely observed on radiologic images. CASE PRESENTATION: A 52-year-old woman complained of cough and dyspnea for one month...
