RATIONALE: Lymph node is a preferred site for extrapulmonary tuberculosis (TB). In the thorax, mediastinal tuberculous lymph nodes can erode adjacent structures such as heart, aorta, and esophagus, forming fistula, and causing fatal consequences. However, tuberculous bronchonodal fistula as a complication of lymph node TB in adults is rarely known in terms of imaging or clinical findings. Here, a case of isolated tuberculous bronchonodal fistula appearing as the first presentation of TB in a 74-year-old male with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is reported...

Renal involvement in Systemic Lupus Erythematous (SLE) patients is one of the leading causes of morbidity and a significant contributor to mortality. It's estimated that nearly 50% of SLE individuals develop kidney disease in the first year of the diagnosis. Class IV lupus nephritis (LN-IV) is the class of lupus nephritis most common in Colombian patients with SLE. Altered miRNAs expression levels have been reported in human autoimmune diseases including lupus. Variations in the expression pattern of peripheral blood circulating miRNAs specific for this class of lupus nephritis could be correlated with the pathophysiological status of this group of individuals...

BACKGROUND: Although maternal-child care is a pillar of primary health care, there is a global shortage of maternal-child health care providers. Nurse educators experience difficulties providing undergraduate students with maternal-child learning experiences for a number of reasons. Simulation has the potential to complement learning in clinical and classroom settings. Although systematic reviews of simulation are available, no systematic reviews of qualitative evidence related to maternal-child simulation-based learning (SBL) for undergraduate nursing students and/or educators have been located...

Systemic autoimmune diseases (SAIDs) represent a group of syndromes involving at least two organ systems. Classical SAIDs include connective tissue diseases, vasculitis, and granulomatous diseases, many of which involve the nervous system and result in different neurological manifestations. Hydrocephalus can be a rare but lethal complication of various SAIDs, including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), sarcoidosis, and primary vasculitis. However, the pathogenesis of SAIDs complicated with different types of hydrocephalus is varied and difficult to determine using the existing published data, and various manifestations and expressive forms of the conditions bring a substantial challenge to a timely clinical diagnosis and treatment...

Increasing evidence has demonstrated the association between long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) and multiple autoimmune diseases. To explore four lncRNAs (GAS5, lnc-DC, linc0597 and linc0949) expression levels and gene polymorphisms in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), a two stage design was applied. In the first stage, 85 SLE patients and 71 healthy controls were enrolled to investigate the lncRNAs expression levels. Then, 1260 SLE patients and 1231 healthy controls were included to detect the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the differentially expressed lncRNAs identified in the first stage...

In systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), the most commonly encountered finding related to platelets is thrombocytopenia whereas thrombocytosis is rarely reported. Our aim here was to reveal the type and the frequency of thrombocytosis in SLE patients along with its causes. Data of patients were evaluated retrospectively. Patients who had a platelet count of > 450,000/mm(3) (> 450 × 10(9)/L) in at least two subsequent counts and lasting more than 6 months during the follow-up were considered to have "persistent thrombocytosis"...
