Socioeconomic status (SES) is defined as an individual's social or economic standing, and is a measure of an individual's or family's social or economic position or rank in a social group. It is a composite of several measures including income, education, occupation, location of residence or housing. Studies have found a lower SES has been linked to disproportionate access to health care in many diseases. There is emerging data in pulmonary diseases such as COPD, asthma, cystic fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension and other chronic respiratory conditions that allude to a similar observation noted in other chronic diseases...

REVIEW
Ewa J Białek, Wiesław Jakubowski
The article discusses basic mistakes that can occur during ultrasound imaging of superficial lymph nodes. Ultrasound is the first imaging method used in the diseases of superficial organs and tissues, including lymph nodes. The causes of mistakes can be either dependent or independent of the performing physician. The first group of mistakes includes inappropriate interpretation of images of anatomical structures, while the latter group includes, among other things, similar ultrasound images of different pathologies...

BACKGROUND: Cell therapy holds the most promising for acute and chronic deleterious respiratory diseases. However, the safety and tolerance for lung disorders are controversy. METHODS: We undertook a systematic review and meta-analyses of all 23 clinical studies of cell therapy. The outcomes were odds ratio (OR), risk difference (RD), Peto OR, relative risk, and mean difference of serious adverse events. RESULTS: 342 systemic infusions and 57 bronchial instillations (204 recipients) of cells were analyzed for acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), bronchopulmonary dysplasia, pulmonary arterial hypertension, silicosis, sarcoidosis, extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD), and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis...

INTRODUCTION: Treating ventricular tachycardia (VT) in patients with cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) is challenging as patients present in different phase of the disease (inflammatory, scar or sometimes both). A customized approach to treatment is required for better outcomes. We describe our experience in the management of VT in CS based on the phase of the disease. METHODS AND RESULTS: Patients were considered to have myocardial inflammation if there was an increased myocardial (18) Fluoro Deoxy Glucose (FDG) uptake in PET-CT scan of the chest (n=14)...

BACKGROUND: The role of surgery in the onset of sarcoidosis is unclear. We investigated whether surgery is an internal environmental factor for sarcoidosis onset within the Japanese population. METHODS: We enrolled 222 patients diagnosed with sarcoidosis (78 men, 144 women) who were admitted to our department between 1984 and 2012. We also enrolled 529 control subjects (251 men, 278 women), who were matched for sex, age at admission, and year of admission. Surgical history, family history, and smoking status were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies demonstrated that SAA staining of sarcoidosis granulomas was qualitatively and quantitatively different from other granulomatous diseases. These data suggest that positive SAA staining of granulomatous tissue may have adequate specificity to establish a diagnosis of sarcoidosis. Our objective was to determine the diagnostic specificity of SAA staining for sarcoidosis relative to other granulomatous disorders. METHODS: Pathological specimens demonstrating granulomatous inflammation were retrospectively identified at one institution, plus 4 specimens were obtained from New York City firefighters with biopsy-confirmed World Trade Center "sarcoidosis-like" pulmonary disease...

INTRODUCTION: The prevalence of sarcoidosis varies as much as 1-40 cases per 100,000 depending on region and population. Sarcoid typically occurs in people younger than 50 years old, with a peak incidence with ages between 20 and 40 years old. African Americans are 3 times more likely to develop sarcoidosis than Caucasian Americans, and woman are more likely than men to develop sarcoidosis in any ethnic group; nonetheless, it remains a valid differential across any population. CASE: A 32 year old Hispanic man presented to the Emergency Department with night sweats, fatigue, and 35 pound unintentional weight loss over the last several weeks...

CASE: A 50 year old African-American woman with diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia presented with progressively worsening retro-sternal chest pain, exacerbated by activity and relieved by rest. She also endorsed a thirty-pound unintentional weight loss, and dysphagia. She was dysarthric with left-sided Bell's Palsy and a palpable left axillary lymph node. She had been evaluated at several hospitals in the previous months for similar typical chest pain. Her troponin values were normal, and an EKG showed T-wave inversions in leads I and aVL...

A 70-year-old female patient presenting with swelling and subcutaneous nodule formation localized to the knee scars over a two-month period is presently reported. Dermatological examinations found erythematous swelling and small papules on the patient's knee scars, along with subcutaneous nodules beneath and around the scars. Computer tomography of the chest region identified multiple obscure tubercles in the lungs and swollen lymph nodes in the hilum pulmonis and mediastinum. Skin biopsy revealed multiple non-caseating granulomas, which had infiltrated the dermis...

Pachymeningitis is a fibrosing and inflammatory process, which involves the dura mater. Some pachymeningitis are cranial and induce headaches and cranial nerve palsies. Others are spinal and responsible for nerve roots or spinal cord compression. MRI shows contrast enhancement thickening of the dura mater. Etiologies are infectious (syphilis, tuberculosis, etc.) or inflammatory (sarcoidosis, granulomatosis with polyangiitis, IgG4-related disease, idiopathic). Corticosteroids are the main treatment. The use of immunosuppressive drugs or rituximab is yet to be determined and probably adapted to each etiology...

Small fiber neuropathy (SFN) is still unknown. Characterised by neuropathic pain, it typically begins by burning feet, but could take many other expression. SFN affects the thinly myelinated Aδ and unmyelinated C-fibers, by an inherited or acquired mechanism, which could lead to paresthesia, thermoalgic disorder or autonomic dysfunction. Recent studies suggest the preponderant role of ion channels such as Nav1.7. Furthermore, erythromelalgia or burning mouth syndrome are now recognized as real SFN. Various aetiologies of SFN are described...

INTRODUCTION: It is challenging for pulmonologists to sample mediastinal lymph nodes or some endobronchial lesions because of safety concerns. C-TBNA (conventional transbronchial needle aspiration) is a procedure to sample such sites, but is underutilized. We present a retrospective review of patients subjected to C-TBNA through fibre-optic bronchoscopy over a 10-year period. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Year-wise statistics of C-TBNA was reviewed and results were analyzed with regard to sampling sites and type of intraluminal lesions encountered, diagnosis made and their correlation with sampling sites, sex and age...

Tracheobroncopathia osteochondroplastica (TO) is a benign disease of the large airways seen very rarely. It is characterized by 1-3 mm sized ossified nodular lesions in submucosa. Its etiology is unclear, but it is stated that malignancy, chronic inflammation, amyloidosis, and genetic factors might have an effect on it. It was first described by Wilks in a 38-year-old man diagnosed with tuberculosis in 1857. Generally, patients are asymptomatic and TO is diagnosed incidentally. But symptoms become significant with infections and obstruction in tracheabronchial tree...
