Echinococcosis is a zoonotic disease caused by Echinococcus granulosus sensu lato. The liver and lungs are the most commonly sites of infections, but involvements of other organs were also observed. Recently, the coinfection of pulmonary hydatid cyst with aspergilloma has been reported in the literature. Herein, we report a successful treatment of coinfection of cystic echinoccosis with aspergilloma due to Aspergillus flavus in a 34-year-old female. In vitro antifungal susceptibility tests revealed that the MIC values for antifungals employed in this case were posaconazole (0...

The aim of the present review was to summarize and discuss previous findings concerning renal manifestations of primary mitochondrial disorders (MIDs). A literature review was performed using frequently used databases. The study identified that primary MIDs frequently present as mitochondrial multiorgan disorder syndrome (MIMODS) at onset or in the later course of the MID. Occasionally, the kidneys are affected in MIDs. Renal manifestations of MIDs include renal insufficiency, nephrolithiasis, nephrotic syndrome, renal cysts, renal tubular acidosis, Bartter-like syndrome, Fanconi syndrome, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, tubulointerstitial nephritis, nephrocalcinosis, and benign or malign neoplasms...

Autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the most prevalent cystic kidney disease, with approximately half of the patients reaching end-stage renal disease by the age of 60. Tolvaptan prevents renal cyst growth by inhibiting intracellular cyclic AMP and is recommended for patients with ADPKD. Reports of thrombotic complications with tolvaptan have been limited. We report a case of a 60-year-old man who developed thromboembolisms during tolvaptan treatment for ADPKD. The patient started tolvaptan in July 2014...

The following report describes the case of a 43-year-old male smoker that was referred to the rapid access lung clinic with haemoptysis, chest pain, and axillary lymphadenopathy-a clinical picture that raised concern for a possible underlying malignancy. Preliminary investigations revealed elevated D-dimers, low-volume haemoptysis, and a normal chest X-ray, which lowered the index of suspicion. However, computed tomography (CT) pulmonary angiogram identified a right hilar mass, several parenchymal cysts, and a large mediastinal mass...

Cardiac manifestations of the hydatid cyst are relatively uncommon. Cardiac involvement may lead to the compression of vital organs, pulmonary hypertension, pericardial effusion, and even anaphylaxis. A 45-year-old woman presented to the Emergency Department of Tehran Heart Center with chest pain. Cardiac examination revealed relatively muffled heart sounds. Echocardiography demonstrated a round echolucent well-defined mass (47 × 25 mm) on the base and the mid lateral wall of the left ventricle (LV) without septation...

Cardiac hydatid cyst is an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. In cystic Echinococcus humans are an accidental host. Liver and lungs are the most frequently involved organs. Herein a unique case of intramyocardial hydatid cyst of left ventricle along with pulmonary hydatid cyst in a 38-year-old lady is reported. Surgical removal of the cardiac hydatid cyst was done with the aid of cardiopulmonary bypass followed by removal of pulmonary hydatid cyst.

Warburg effect, as an energy shift from mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation to aerobic glycolysis, is extensively found in various cancers. Interestingly, increasing researchers show that Warburg effect plays a crucial role in non-tumor diseases. For instance, inhibition of Warburg effect can alleviate pulmonary vascular remodeling in the process of pulmonary hypertension. Interference of Warburg effect improves mitochondrial function and cardiac function in the process of cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure...

We report an unusual complication following placement of a thoracic epidural catheter in a patient that had undergone surgery for pulmonary metastases of a malignant melanoma. The intra- and postoperative course was initially without complications. At 2 days, there was a small, conspicuous swelling above the site of epidural puncture, which was neither reddened nor painful. No neurological deficits were observed, and the patient explained that he had been aware of the swelling for more than 6 months; thus, the epidural catheter was not deemed to be responsible...

OBJECTIVE: Cystic echinococcosis (CE) is a globally prevalent zoonotic disease. METHODS: Demographic, clinical, laboratory, and follow-up data of patients between May 2009 and 2015 were retrospectively analyzed by screening data from a hospital automation system. RESULTS: A total of 238 (females, n=139 and males, n=99) patients with a mean age of 40.6±20.58 years were included. Less than half (40.8%) of the patients were living in the countryside...

Congenital right atrial aneurysm is a rare abnormality and may easily be confused with various anomalies, such as pericardial effusion, pericardial cysts, tumors, and Ebstein's anomaly. Patients with right atrial aneurysm may be asymptomatic; but some patients may develop life-threatening complications, such as arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, or pulmonary embolism. Therefore, it is essential for correct diagnosis and appropriate patient management. We report a case of giant right atrial aneurysm in a 7-year-old boy who presented with progressive protrusion of chest...

Echinococcus granulosus causes a zoonotic infection called cystic echinococcosis (CE) or more commonly known as hydatid disease. Although the two most common locations of hydatid cyst are liver and lung, it may also appear in other parts of the body. Clinical presentation of the hydatid disease depends on the site and size of the lesion. A retrospective study was done in Medical College and Hospital, Kolkata, from January 2012 to June 2014, to find the site of involvement, distribution, clinical features, history of contact, mode of presentation, laboratory diagnosis, and treatment modalities of the cases of hydatid cyst...

BACKGROUND: A nonthrombotic pulmonary embolism is defined as embolization to the pulmonary circulation. It may be caused by microorganisms, foreign bodies, different cell types or gas in the pulmonary circulation. Nonthrombotic emboli may cause a severe inflammatory reaction, both in the systemic and pulmonary circulation, as well as in the lungs. Pulmonary hydatid cyst-induced embolization is a rare complication of heart or liver hydatid cysts. CASE REPORT: We describe the fatal case of a 15-year-old boy without any known prior illness who was admitted to the hospital after feeling unwell and dropping to the ground while playing ball...

Cystic echinococcosis (CE) is an important helminthic zoonotic disease that commonly affects the liver and lungs. Imaging methods and serology establish the diagnosis in most cases. Chest x-ray can diagnose uncomplicated pulmonary hydatid cysts, whereas superinfection and/or rupture of the hydatid cyst (complicated cysts) may change the radiographic appearance and lead to delayed diagnosis and treatment. We report the case of a patient with hemoptysis and chest pain, where computer tomography scan of the lung suggested a large, ruptured hydatid cyst...

Pulmonary sequestration (PS) happens when an area of the lung receives its arterial blood supply from systemic circulation, resulting in a non-functional lesion (Intralobar or extralobar). Hydatid cyst results from infection of the tapeworm Echinococcus. We report a case of hydatid cyst existed concurrently with intralobar PS. A 12-year-old girl presented with recurrent hemoptysis of 2 years duration. Serology for Echinococcus granulosus was positive. CT chest suggested intralobar PS in the right middle lobe, which was surgically removed...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: The pressure, size, and central or peripheral location of lung hydatid cysts are the most studied topics among the factors affecting perforation. The aim of this study is to investigate the relation between the location and the perforation rate of lung hydatid cysts in children. METHODS: 197 patients under the age of 16 years, who were operated between January 2000 and December 2016 due to pulmonary hydatid cysts, were evaluated retrospectively...
