Trisomy 8 in myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) plays an important role in concurrent intestinal Behçet's disease (BD) pathogenesis. Here, we reported a case of intestinal BD combined with MDS involving trisomy 8. A 48-year-old woman who has had a 20-year history of recurrent oral ulcer, perineal ulcer and iris, was diagnosed as MDS with trisomy 8 four years ago. She developed high fever and acute abdominal pain. Multiple ulcerative perforations in ileum and colon were found by endoscopy, meeting the criteria for intestinal BD...

Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) continues to be a rare and elusive malignancy. Because BIA-ALCL does not behave like traditional lymphomas, additional research needs to be conducted to further delineate the lymphoproliferative nature of BIA-ALCL. An estimated 35 million women worldwide have breast implants and the total reported deaths from BIA-ALCL is 12 to date. The term micromort was introduced in 1979 by Ronald Howard as a person's risk of dying as 1 in a million. Drinking 0...

Breast implant-associated anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) is a rare but serious complication in patients with breast implants, Patients are at risk of BIA-ALCL whether they receive breast implants for cosmetic reasons or for reconstructive purposes after surgery for breast cancer or prophylactic mastectomy. During the past decade, an increased number of reports have addressed BIA-ALCL. Herein, we describe BIA-ALCL in a transgender woman. The patient received breast implants as part of her gender transition and was diagnosed with BIA-ALCL 20 years later...

Sex by diabetes interaction on cardiovascular disease (CVD) has been established in whites; however, it is unknown if this interaction occurs in African Americans. We hypothesized that is a multiplicative sex by diabetes interaction for CVD among blacks in ARIC, 1987-2013. Race-specific Cox models were run in three stages; stage 1 examined baseline diabetes status, stage 2-baseline diabetes status with the competing risk of non-CVD death, and stage 3- time-varying diabetes status with a competing risk of non-CVD death...

A variety of sequelae of elevated calcium levels are encountered in patients with underlying primary hyperparathyroidism, including stone formation such as calculi in the urinary tract and sialoliths in the salivary glands and ducts. We present a case of a 54-year-old woman with fatigue, myalgia, and poor concentration who was found to have hypercalcemia (corrected calcium, 11.2 mg/dL) and elevated parathyroid hormone level (112 pg/mL), laboratory values consistent with primary hyperparathyroidism. She underwent evaluation with a Tc-MIBI parathyroid SPECT scan that included x-ray CT acquisitions for anatomical localization and attenuation correction...

A 44-year-old woman with newly diagnosed gastric adenocarcinoma by gastroscopy underwent F-FDG PET/CT to evaluate possible metastasis. The images demonstrated intense activity in the region of uterine corpus, as well as greater gastric curvature. Physiologic uptake of endometrium was initially suspected, given the rarity with which extragenital cancers metastasize to the uterus. Ultimately, the endometrium proved to be mucinous adenocarcinoma of gastric origin based on its shared histological features and compatible immunostaining profile...

Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were collected from a 65-year old healthy woman with Chinese Han genetic background. The PBMCs were reprogrammed with the human OKSM transcription factors using the non-integrating episomal vector system. The transgene-free iPSC showed pluripotency verified by immunocytochemistry for pluripotency markers and differentiated spontaneously toward the 3 germ layers in vitro. Furthermore, the iPSC line showed normal karyotype. The iPSC line can be used as control in disease mechanism studies...

Achondroplasia is an autosomal dominant disease which is characterized by limb shortening and narrow trunk, and macrocephaly. Women with achondroplasia suffer from infertility, menorrhagia, dysmenorrhoea, leiomyomata and early menopause. Our case was a 26-year-old woman with achondroplasia who had scoliosis and osteoporosis. She referred to our clinic at 9 weeks of gestation and had all screenings completely. She had a single female fetus with no abnormalities. She had an emergent due to rupture of membranes at 37 weeks and 3 days under general anesthesia...

A 47-year-old woman presented with a history of resistant arterial hypertension, associated with disabling headache. She was subjected to an enormous number of tests in order to identify an underlying cause of secondary hypertension, such as pheochromocytoma or Cushing syndrome, but all the most common causes of secondary hypertension were investigated and gradually excluded. Factitious use of amphetamine or cocaine was excluded, and therapy compliance was verified by witnessed ingestion of drug therapy, in order to rule out Munchausen syndrome...

Synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome is a rare disease with inflammatory osteoarticular and skin involvement. The pathogenesis of SAPHO syndrome remains unclear, but evidence suggests it may be an autoinflammatory disease triggered upon exposure to infectious agents in genetically predisposed individuals. Induction of the IL-23/Th17 axis as well as neutrophil activation seem to play a key role, and therapies targeting these immunological pathways, including TNF-inhibitors, ustekinumab, secukinumab and the IL-1 inhibitor anakinra are potential treatment options that need further investigation...

We herein present a case of a 20-year-old woman who suffered from type I diabetes mellitus and died from a diabetic ketoacidosis in a context of addiction to hyperglycemia. Diabetic ketoacidosis is a lethal complication of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, which can result from insulin therapy stoppage. This can occur voluntarily with suicidal intent or involuntarily due to treatment inaccessibility, forgotten injections, or material deficiency. A new possibility is investigated in our case study: hyperglycemia addiction...

Uterine tumors resembling ovarian sex cord tumors (UTROSCTs) are rare and commonly characterized as benign tumors, with infrequent reports of metastasis and recurrence. Treatment recommendations have not been well established, particularly for more advanced cases. We present the first reported death from a metastatic UTROSCT, summarize the available literature, and describe characteristics common to UTROSCTs with aggressive features. In this case, a 49-year-old woman presented with abdominal distension and pain; initial imaging and diagnostic workup suggested metastatic epithelial ovarian cancer to be the cause...

Uterine gas gangrene caused by Clostridium perfringens is a serious, often life-threatening infection that is rarely encountered in the practice of gynecologic oncology. However, the hypoxic nature of gynecologic cancers due to necrosis and/or prior radiation therapy creates a microenvironment optimal for proliferation of anaerobic bacteria such as the Clostridium species. Early recognition and aggressive treatment with IV antibiotics and surgical debridement remain the cornerstones of management in order to decrease morbidity and mortality...

A 44-year-old Japanese woman with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease was admitted to our hospital for evaluation of abdominal distension. Her eGFR was 53.7 mL/min/1.73 m(2). Total kidney volume was 2,614 mL. Tolvaptan (60 mg/day) was started to treat renal involvement. The patient's abdominal fullness began to improve and liver volume, indicating advanced polycystic liver disease (PLD), decreased from 9,750 mL to 8,345 mL after 17 months of tolvaptan treatment, though there was no significant change in kidney volume...
