Although the infectious diseases tuberculosis (TB) and cryptococcosis both cause formation of single or multiple nodules in immunodeficient hosts, cases of co-infection of these diseases are rarely seen. We report a patient who was co-infected with TB and cryptococcosis. A male patient with no clinical evidence of immunodeficiency presented with a 3-week history of abdominal distension accompanied by oedema of recurring lower extremities. The patient was diagnosed with tuberculous peritonitis and tuberculous pleurisy by an abdominal puncture biopsy...

INTRODUCTION: Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) has a variable prognosis; left atrial size, presence of clinical signs and left ventricular systolic function have been shown to predict outcomes. Mitral annular plane systolic excursion (MAPSE) and tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion (TAPSE) assess longitudinal ventricular systolic function and are decreased in cats with HCM. The aim of the study was to ascertain whether MAPSE and TAPSE have prognostic value in HCM and if cats with pleural effusion have lower MAPSE and TAPSE than cats with pulmonary oedema...

REVIEW
Xavier Monnet, Jean-Louis Teboul
Many efforts have been made to predict, before giving fluid, whether it will increase cardiac output. Nevertheless, after fluid administration, it is also essential to assess the therapeutic efficacy and to look for possible adverse effects. Like for any drug, this step should not be missed. Basically, volume expansion is aimed at improving tissue oxygenation and organ function. To assess this final result, clinical signs are often unhelpful. The increase in urine output in case of acute kidney injury is a poor marker of the kidney perfusion improvement...

BACKGROUND: Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) may be a cause of neurogenic pulmonary edema (NPE). It is well known that lymphatic fluid draining by thoracic duct to lungs consists of many dangerous metabolites, degraded tissue particles and microbiological pathogens. However, there is no enough study which investigates if NPE cause septicemia or not. In this study, we retrospectively examined our experimental materials whether there is a meaningful relationship between the NPE and cerebral abscess formation...

A 77-year-old man was admitted with a relapse of antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-positive vasculitis with pulmonary involvement and acute kidney injury. There was a background of pulmonary fibrosis (non-specific interstitial pneumonia type pattern) and superadded pulmonary haemorrhage, acute pulmonary oedema and sepsis. The patient was intubated for 4 days and remained dependent on high flow oxygen and continuous positive airway pressure after extubation. A chest radiograph performed 2 weeks after extubation demonstrated unexpected, extensive pneumomediastinum and subcutaneous emphysema...

Massive pulmonary haemorrhage is a life-threatening and difficult-to-manage condition. In certain circumstances, traditional approaches for haemoptysis may not be effective. Here, we report a 64-year-old man presenting with dyspnoea and leg oedema. He was diagnosed with microscopic polyangiitis due to positive perinuclear anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody and other supportive evidence. His hospital course was complicated with massive pulmonary haemorrhage, which led to hypoxic respiratory failure, shock, and pulseless electrical activity...

Negative pressure pulmonary edema (NPPE) is a clinical syndrome well described in the literature and easy to recognize in cases of suspicion, but probably underdiagnosed. It can be a cause of morbidity and admission to the intensive care unit of healthy young individuals. It is present in approximately one in every thousand anesthetics and in 10% of the episodes of upper airway obstruction that are observed in routine clinical practice. It is a non-cardiogenic form of pulmonary oedema thought to be caused by the highly negative intra-thoracic pressure generated when trying to breathe against an acute obstruction...

Recently, side effects of plasma expanders like hydroxyethyl starch and gelatine gained considerable attention. Most studies have focused on the kidneys; lungs remain unconsidered. Isolated mouse lungs were perfused for 4 hours with buffer solutions based on hydroxyethyl starch (HES) 130/0.4, HES 200/0.5 or gelatine and ventilated with low or high pressure under physiological pH and alkalosis. Outcome parameters were cytokine levels and the wet-to-dry ratio. For cytokine release, murine and human PCLS were incubated in three different buffers and time points...

In healthy divers, the occurrence of immersion pulmonary oedema (IPE) is commonly caused by contributory factors including strenuous exercise, cold water and negative-pressure breathing. Contrary to this established paradigm, this case reports on a 26-year-old, well-trained combat swimmer who succumbed to acute IPE during static immersion in temperate (21°C) water, while using a front-mounted counterlung rebreather. The incident occurred during repeated depth-controlled ascent practice at the French military diving school...

BACKGROUND: High altitude illness (HAI) is a term used to describe a group of mainly cerebral and pulmonary syndromes that can occur during travel to elevations above 2500 metres (˜ 8200 feet). Acute mountain sickness (AMS), high altitude cerebral oedema (HACE) and high altitude pulmonary oedema (HAPE) are reported as potential medical problems associated with high altitude ascent. In this second review, in a series of three about preventive strategies for HAI, we assessed the effectiveness of five of the less commonly used classes of pharmacological interventions...

Enterovirus A-71 (EV-A71) may be fatal, but the natural history, symptoms, and signs are poorly understood. This study aimed to examine the natural history of fatal EV-A71 infection and to identify the symptoms and signs of early warning of deterioration. This was a clinical observational study of fatal cases of EV-A71 infection treated at five Chinese hospitals between 1 January 2010 and 31 December 2012. We recorded and analysed 91 manifestations of EV-A71 infection in order to identify early prognosis indicators...

Natural products have many health benefits, and their application can improve the quality of life. Recently, the diterpene (+)-larixol and its acetylated congeners demonstrated selective inhibition of the second-messenger-gated cation channel transient receptor potential canonical 6 (TRPC6) over its close isoforms TRPC3 and TRPC7. Building on this knowledge, we expanded these findings by chemical diversification of (+)-larixol mostly at position C6. Implementing high-throughput Ca2+ FLIPR screening assays and electrophysiological patch-clamp recordings, we showcase larixyl N-methylcarbamate, termed SH045, as a compound with nanomolar affinity and 13-fold subtype selectivity over TRPC3 in stably expressing HEK293 cells...

BACKGROUND: Malaria-associated acute respiratory distress syndrome (MA-ARDS) is a complication of malaria with a lethality rate of up to 80% despite anti-malarial treatment. It is characterized by a vast infiltration of leukocytes, microhaemorrhages and vasogenic oedema in the lungs. Previously, a mouse model for MA-ARDS was developed by infection of C57BL/6 mice with the Edinburgh line NK65-E of Plasmodium berghei. RESULTS: Here, both host and parasite factors were demonstrated to play crucial roles in the development and severity of lung pathology...

Background and Aims: Renal transplant is the best possible treatment for patients suffering with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Cardiovascular events are the commonest factors contributing to perioperative morbidity and mortality in this population. These patients have a high incidence (up to 60%) of pulmonary hypertension (PH) and that may affect the perioperative outcome. Methods: In this study, we aimed to study the impact of PH on perioperative outcome after renal transplant...
