We report a case of spontaneous pneumomediastinum with unusual clinical presentation. The most common symptoms of spontaneous mediastinum are chest pain and shortness of breath. Our patient presented with neck swelling and change in voice, an unusual presentation for spontaneous pneumothorax. A 30-year-old previously healthy man presented with complaints of neck swelling and hoarseness of voice beginning after an intense coughing spell. He had no other complaints. He denied any trauma to the chest, nausea, vomiting, recent air travel, scuba diving or recreational drug use...

BACKGROUND & AIM: Newer blood gas analyzers have the ability to report electrolyte values and glucose in addition to pH, so this diagnostic process could be condensed in diagnosing diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). We aimed to assess the accuracy of the venous blood gas (VBG) analysis with electrolytes for diagnosing DKA. METHODS: This study prospectively identified a convenience sample of (60 patients) presented with DKA and tested their VBG and serum electrolytes. The diagnosis of DKA was made according to American Diabetes Association criteria...

OBJECTIVES: To identify the possible role of natural killer (NK) cells in the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) through studying the expression of the KLRC3 gene, which encodes the NK cell activating receptor (NKG2E). METHODS: This study was conducted at Alexandria University Children's Hospital from April to October 2015. The study was conducted with 30 newly diagnosed T1DM patients (15 males and 15 females), aged 7-13 years (10.6±1.8 years) and 20 non-diabetic subjects served as age- and sex-matched controls...

A 36-year-old woman with a clinical history of Friedreich ataxia and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy was found unexpectedly dead at her home. The heart showed asymmetric left ventricular hypertrophy, with an interventricular septal thickness of 20-25 mm (the remainder of the left ventricular wall measured 15 mm). Histologically, both ventricles had irregular areas of marked myocyte hypertrophy with associated interstitial fibrosis and focal myofibre disarray. There was neuronal loss within the dentate nucleus of the cerebellum, with vacuolation and axonal loss in the dorsal columns and spinocerebellar tracts of the upper cervical spinal cord...

BACKGROUND: Longitudinal analyses of large detailed adult critical care datasets provide insights into practice trends and generate useful outcome and process benchmarks. METHODS: Data representing 991,571 consecutive critical care visits to160 United States adult ICUs during 2009 to 2013 from the eICU Research Institute clinical practice database were used to quantitate patient characteristics, APACHE IV based acuity predictions, treatments, and outcomes. Analyses for changes over time were performed for patient characteristics, entry and discharge locations, primary admission diagnosis, treatments, adherence to consensus ICU best practices, length of stay (LOS), and inpatient mortality...

An 18 year old male, known case of Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus was admitted in view of diabetic ketoacidosis. With normalization of blood sugars patient developed gross reddish discoloration of urine. Urine routine microscopy did not reveal RBCs or RBC casts. Peripheral blood smear revealed bite cells, Heinz bodies and spherocytes. Thus a diagnosis of hemolytic anemia with hemoglobinuria was made. Patient's glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) levels were below the normal range. G6PD, an enzyme of the HMP shunt, is the most common enzyme defect causing hemolytic anemia...

A woman aged 44 underwent elective standard abdominoplasty and bilateral mastopexy (superiorly based pedicle with vertical scar) following weight loss of 8.5 stone (53.9 kg) over a 5-year period. She had type 2 diabetes and her antidiabetic medications included metformin, liraglutide and empagliflozin. Towards the end of the first postoperative day, she reported gradual onset of nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Her condition continued to deteriorate overnight, becoming tachycardic and tachypnoeic. Urgent investigations showed severe diabetic ketoacidosis with euglycaemia...

BACKGROUND: "Lichenoid esophagitis" is a descriptive term for a lichenoid pattern of inflammation in the esophagus for which a precise histologic diagnosis cannot be established. The differential diagnosis includes lichen planus, a drug-related reaction, and viral infection. Lichenoid esophagitis causing death has not been reported previously. We describe a case, diagnosed by autopsy, of lichenoid esophagitis in which massive bleeding from generalized epithelial sloughing and a large longitudinal ulcer proved fatal...

BACKGROUND: Children with new onset type 1 diabetes (T1D) are at risk of developing the life-threatening condition ketoacidosis if they have a delayed diagnosis. The rate of children presenting in ketoacidosis remains high in a number of countries worldwide. To ensure interventions to raise awareness of symptoms are effective a systematic review was conducted to evaluate previous publicity campaigns. METHODS: A range of databases was searched using search terms relating to T1D, publicity campaigns, and symptom awareness...

A 65-year-old Japanese man with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD) developed acute-onset type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D) that was associated with severe acute kidney injury and was manifested by generalized tonic-clonic status epilepticus. His seizures resolved without recurrence after correcting the diabetic ketoacidosis. Although hyperglycemia is an important cause of acute symptomatic seizure (ASS), patients with ketotic hyperglycemia develop ASS less frequently. In this T1D case with CKD, severe hyperglycemia in conjunction with other metabolic insults, such as uremia, hyponatremia, and hypocalcemia, probably provoked his seizure despite the severe ketonemia...

A 19-year-old woman with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus was found dead in bed having allegedly recently taken ecstasy and consumed alcohol. At autopsy, there were microhemorrhages in the brain with subnuclear vacuolization and Armanni-Ebstein changes in renal tubules. Biochemical analyses confirmed diabetic ketoacidosis (vitreous glucose-46.5 mmol/L; β-OH butyrate-13.86 mmol/L.). Toxicological analyses of blood showed a low level of 3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine (MDMA) (0.01 mg/L), with acetone but no alcohol or other common drugs...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of free diabetes care on metabolic control and on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of youths living with type 1 diabetes in Cameroon. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: We conducted a clinical audit of a multicenter prospective cohort, performed in three of the nine clinics of the 'Changing Diabetes in Children' (CDiC) project in Cameroon. We collected data on demography, glycemic control, diabetes acute complications, and patients' HRQoL at baseline and after 1 year of follow-up...

Human diabetic patients may have increased lactate levels compared to non-diabetics. Despite the use of lactate levels in critical care assessment, information is lacking for diabetic dogs. Therefore, this prospective cross-sectional clinical study aimed to determine lactate concentrations in 75 diabetic dogs [25 newly diagnosed non-ketotic diabetics, 25 under insulin treatment, and 25 in diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA)], compared to 25 non-diabetic dogs. Lactate levels (mmol/L) were not different among groups (P = 0...

PURPOSE: Determination of the incidence rate of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is urgent, in response to the safety issue with use of the glucose lowering drugs, sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors, and DKA. METHODS: We extracted data of adult patients with T2DM from a medical claims database in Japan, which included 1 million individuals. The study period was 2005-2013, before the era of sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors...

Mucormycosis is a rare fungal infection; however, the number of cases increased during the last decades. The main risk factors are immunosuppression and uncontrolled diabetes mellitus. Although Lichtheimia species represent a common cause of mucormycosis in Europe, virulence and pathogenesis of this genus has not been investigated in detail yet. Using murine pulmonary infection models, we found that immunosuppression is essential for establishment of infection. The disease was characterized by necrosis, angioinvasion, thrombosis, and the lethal course of infection was associated with systemic activation of platelets...
