Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is a newly defined syndrome; therefore, this transient clinical condition is not well known and probably underdiagnosed. It develops quickly with symptoms that are usually indistinguishable from eclampsia. Nurses need to be knowledgeable and aware of identifying symptoms and appropriate treatment. The condition is thought to share pathophysiology with eclampsia, and it is suggested that endothelial dysfunction combined with hypertension causes disruption in the blood brain barrier resulting in cerebral edema...

Purpose: To describe a case of immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related dacyroadenitis presenting as bilateral chorioretinal folds from eyeball compression by massively enlarged lacrimal glands. Observations: A 51-year-old woman with severely enlarged bilateral lacrimal glands was diagnosed as having IgG4-related dacryoadenitis. The glands strongly compressed the globes, forming chorioretinal folds resembling those found in orbital malignancy. Eventual treatment with oral prednisolone dramatically reduced the volume of the lacrimal glands and released globe compression on magnetic resonance imaging...

Collateral circulation is an alternative path occurring in case of venous or artery obstruction. This path may usually develop after primary recanalization. In our case, a 62-year-old woman presented to our Emergency Department complaining about a suprapubic swelling with a cyanotic discoloration of the overlying skin for the past 10 days for which she had been previously prescribed antibiotics. Investigation with ultrasound and contrast-enhanced computed tomography was performed. An imaging study revealed thrombosed pubic varicose collateral veins due to deep vein obstruction and occlusion of the left external iliac vein...

Varicella zoster virus reactivation is a rare cause of pharyngeal dysphagia with long-term sequelae persisting in most cases. A 76-year-old immunocompetent woman presented with a 4-week history of dysphagia and dysphonia. Brain magnetic resonance imaging displayed a negative finding. Fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing showed a severe dysphagia leading to a percutaneous gastrostomy eventually. Cerebrospinal fluid analysis revealed a lymphocytic pleocytosis and polymerase chain reaction amplified Varicella zoster virus DNA...

Studies have suggested that the incidence of multiple sclerosis (MS) in HIV-infected (HIV+) patients is lower than that of the general population. Here, we present a case of MS in an HIV+ patient with a relatively suppressed CD4 cell count who developed clinical and radiographic disease worsening in the setting of antiretroviral therapy (ART) initiation. A 47-year-old HIV+ woman (CD4 cell count 216 cells/µl) presented with decreased vision in her right eye. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed optic nerve enhancement and open ring-enhancing lesions in the brain concerning for demyelinating disease...

Peripheral nervous system damage from hematologic malignancies is related to neoplastic cells infiltration of peripheral nerves or to monoclonal antibody production cross-reacting with peripheral nerves' antigens. Neurolymphomatosis (NL), a rare manifestation of hematologic malignancies, occurs when malignant cells invade the peripheral nerves leading to various manifestations. Here, we report a case of NL with 2 hematologic malignancies in a 79-year-old woman presenting with lower extremity pain/weakness. Investigation revealed anemia, IgM kappa monoclonal gammopathy, and elevated anti-MAG titer...

RATIONALE: Iodine-131 (I-131) is a sensitive marker for the detection of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). I-131 whole-body scintigraphy (WBS) has been used widely in evaluation of DTC patient. However, I-131 WBS exists many false-positive uptake of I-131 because radioiodine uptake can also be seen in healthy tissue or in a variety of benign and malignant non-thyroidal tumors. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 44-year-old woman with a papillary thyroid carcinoma for the purpose of ablation therapy after a total thyroidectomy...

FDG PET/CT was performed in a 30-year-old woman to detect the source of fever of unknown origin. The images showed widespread abnormal activity, consistent with lymphoma. However, lymph node biopsy revealed only inflammation, and a diagnosis of familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis was eventually made after familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis-specific gene was detected. After proper therapy, a follow-up FDG PET/CT examination 2 months later showed resolution of most of the previously seen lesions...

Optimizing preoperative planning is widely sought in deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) flap surgery. One reason for this is that rates of fat necrosis remain relatively high (up to 35%), and that adjusting flap design by an improved understanding of individual perforasomes and perfusion characteristics may be useful in reducing the risk of fat necrosis. Imaging techniques have substantially improved over the past decade, and with recent advances in 3D printing, an improved demonstration of imaged anatomy has become available...

Delayed age-related lobular involution has been previously associated with elevated breast cancer risk. However, intraindividual variability in epithelial involution status within a woman is undefined. We developed a novel measure of age-related epithelial involution, density of epithelial nuclei in epithelial areas using digital image analysis in combination with stromal characteristics (percentage of section area comprising stroma). Approximately 1800 hematoxylin and eosin stained sections of benign breast tissue were evaluated from 416 participants having breast surgery for cancer or benign conditions...

BACKGROUND: Metaplastic carcinoma encompasses a group of neoplasms characterized by differentiation of the neoplastic epithelium into squamous cells and/or mesenchymal-looking elements. Spindle cell carcinoma is a rare variant of this special histological type. Its prognosis remains poor, with a high rate of local recurrence and distant metastasis. To date, only a small number of cases have been described. There is no clear agreement on this histological subtype. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of a 53-year-old Moroccan woman who consulted our institution following palpation of a nodule of the left breast...

OBJECTIVE: Lumbar transforaminal epidural steroid injection is commonly used for treating lumbar radicular pain. We report a case of segmental spinal myoclonus that developed during lumbar transforaminal epidural injection with local anesthetic and steroid. CASE REPORT: A 58-year-old woman with failed back surgery syndrome presented with low back and right L3 and L4 radicular pain. As she had responded well previously to diagnostic selective nerve root injection with local anesthetic at the right L3 and L4 levels, lumbar transforaminal epidural steroid injection at the same levels was scheduled...

Cases of dizziness caused by multiple sclerosis are commonly reported, but those caused by mitochondrial encephalomyopathy have been rarely reported. Particularly, the description of eye nystagmography (ENG) using caloric and optokinetic nystagmus tests has not been reported to date. We encountered the case of a 40-year-old woman with mitochondrial encephalomyopathy who visited us with the chief complaint of dizziness. At first, we considered multiple sclerosis based on the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings and dizziness...
