BACKGROUND: Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GP) is a systemic necrotizing vasculitis with multi-organ involvement that primarily affects the respiratory tract and the kidneys. Fever in these patients is an indicator of activity; however, if it arises in isolation, the physician should exclude other causes. CLINICAL CASE: Male patient admitted due to an unexplained fever and weight loss; it was diagnosed GP by a history of pauci-immune glomerulonephritis, fixed pulmonary nodules and chronic sinusitis of four years of evolution; however, the fever persisted despite treatment and in the absence of infection...

Pulmonary sequestration (PS) happens when an area of the lung receives its arterial blood supply from systemic circulation, resulting in a non-functional lesion (Intralobar or extralobar). Hydatid cyst results from infection of the tapeworm Echinococcus. We report a case of hydatid cyst existed concurrently with intralobar PS. A 12-year-old girl presented with recurrent hemoptysis of 2 years duration. Serology for Echinococcus granulosus was positive. CT chest suggested intralobar PS in the right middle lobe, which was surgically removed...

Surgical operation in treating obesity and type 2 diabetes is popularizing rapidly in China. Correct prevention and recognition of perioperation-related operative complications is the premise of ensuring surgical safety. Familiar complications of the operation include deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary artery embolism, anastomotic bleeding, anastomotic fistula and marginal ulcer. The prevention of deep venous thrombosis is better than treatment. The concrete measures contain physical prophylaxis (graduated compression stocking and intermittent pneumatic compression leg sleeves) and drug prophylaxis (unfractionated heparin and low molecular heparin), and the treatment is mainly thrombolysis or operative thrombectomy...

Hyperimmunoglobulin D syndrome due to mevalonate kinase deficiency is a rare autoinflammatory disease with digestive tract involvement. We report an 11-year female child who has presented since the age of 1 year, bouts of fever, rash, joint swelling, pulmonary consolidation, lymph node involvement and hepatosplenomegaly. Hyperimmunglobulin D and increased urinary mevalonic acid were detected. The ultrasonographic features of hepatosplenomegaly ranged from increment in size to pseudotumoral involvement, with hypoechogenic masses without apparent wall...

BACKGROUND: Bronchial artery aneurysm (BAA) is a rare condition with a reported prevalence of less than 1% of all selective bronchial arterial angiograms. Despite its low incidence, BAA represents a potential cause of hemoptysis. CASE REPORT: We describe the case of a 63-year-old man suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), who presented with non-massive hemoptysis. CT angiography revealed a single bronchial artery aneurysm of 9 mm in diameter, abutting the esophageal wall...

Hybrid lesions (HLs) have elements of congenital pulmonary airway malformation and extrapulmonary sequestration (EPS) and belong to the congenital lung lesions. EPS usually arises in the thorax or the abdomen but rarely in the diaphragm. The preoperative diagnostic work-up based on chest radiograph, ultrasound (US) and CT often shows imprecise results. Therefore, the exact localisation of the lesion can only be ascertained intraoperatively. Here we present a patient, with an intradiaphragmatic HL, and demonstrate the difficulties of surgical decision making regarding the localisation of the lesion and discuss the value of minimal invasive surgery...

Pulmonary enteric adenocarcinoma (PEA) is a rare variant of pulmonary adenocarcinoma; it is sometimes difficult to discriminate between PEA and metastatic colorectal carcinoma (MCRC) because of their morphological and immunohistochemical resemblance. Here, we conducted clinicopathological, immunohistochemical, and mutational analyses of PEA with special focus on its differentiation from MCRC. We comparatively analyzed eight surgically resected PEA tumors (7 patients) and 20 cases of MCRC. Patients were aged 43-77years (average age, 64...

BACKGROUND: Autoantibodies against Factor VIII (FVIII) define the rare but life-threatening bleeding disorder acquired hemophilia A (AHA). Correction of FVIII deficiency and eradication of the factor inhibitor are the ultimate therapeutic goals in this disorder. Bypassing agents such as recombinant factor VIIa (rFVIIa) or FVIII inhibitor bypassing agent are often used to control coagulopathy before the inhibitor is eradicated. Bypassing agents carry a risk of thrombosis, however. CASE REPORT: We report a patient with newly diagnosed AHA and thalamic bleed who additionally had active atrial fibrillation and developed a segmental pulmonary embolism, limiting tolerable rFVIIa dosage...

Primary cardiac malignancies are rare entities. Although sarcomas enclosed the main group of malignant heart neoplasms, primary cardiac leiomyosarcomas are extremely rare and constitutes less than 8% of cardiac tumors. Leiomyosarcoma usually originates from the pulmonary veins and have a worm-like shaped structure. In this article, we present a case of a 40-year-old Hispanic man diagnosed with a cardiac tumor who underwent surgical resection, during pathological examination the tissue samples were consistent with a malignancy of mesenchymal origin that contained irregular bundles of spindle cells...

We report a case of a 58-year-old male without any comorbidities who was thrombolysed with streptokinase for acute anterior wall myocardial infarction and developed massive hemoptysis with dyspnea and imaging features showing bilateral alveolar infiltrates. He was diagnosed with pulmonary alveolar hemorrhage and treated conservatively. His condition improved, and follow-up imaging showed resolution. Alveolar hemorrhage is a rare and life-threatening complication of thrombolytic therapy.

OBJECTIVE: Transitions in the spectrum of valvular heart diseases (VHDs) in developed countries over the 20th century have been reported from clinical case series, but large, contemporary population-based studies are lacking. METHODS: We used nationwide registers to identify all patients with a first diagnosis of VHD at Swedish hospitals between 2003 and 2010. Age-stratified and sex-stratified incidence of each VHD and adjusted comorbidity profiles were assessed...

Thymomas are rare epithelial mediastinal tumors showing a certain propensity for local and intrathoracic recurrences. Otherwise, extrathoracic metastases are very rarely reported and are usually associated with type B thymomas or thymic carcinomas. We present a challenging patient with an invasive (Masaoka-Koga stage IIb) medullary type A thymoma with recurrent extrathoracic metastases (pulmonary and vertebral localizations occurring 2 and 7 years after the initial radical thymectomy, respectively). Despite type A thymoma being considered a low-grade malignancy with a scarce propensity to recurrence, the present case should alert clinicians to the possibility of bone metastasis...

BACKGROUND: Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare congenital coronary artery irregularity. This study aimed to clarify the long-term postoperative outcomes in ALCAPA patients, and to compare the infantile and adult types. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the clinical data from 33 patients with ALCAPA who underwent surgical repairs after 1980. The patients were grouped based on whether presentation occurred before (infantile type: n=14) or after (adult type: n=19) 1 year of age...

Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) is a benign disease of the upper aero-digestive tract caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, which affects children and young adults. The aim of this review is to describe the main etiological, epidemiological, clinical, diagnostic, and treatment aspects of RRP. Most infections in children occur at birth, during passage through the birth canals of contaminated mothers. In adults, HPV is transmitted sexually. Papillomas usually appear as exophytic nodules, primarily in the larynx, but occasionally involving the nasopharynx, tracheobronchial tree, and pulmonary parenchyma...

We report on the course of disease in a young woman, originally admitted with suspected refractory infectious tropical traveler's diarrhea. However, symptoms did not resolve upon either symptomatic or subsequent antibiotic therapy. When neurologic deterioration was observed, imaging studies revealed a dramatic series of thromboembolic events, including intracranial hemorrhage caused by extensive sinus vein thrombosis as well as thrombi of the right cardiac ventricle. Colonic mucosal biopsy samples finally led to the histologic diagnosis of ulcerative colitis...

Although tuberculosis (TB) is a curable disease, it continues to be one of the leading infections associated with death in the world. Extra-pulmonary TB (EPTB) occurs in approximately 10% of the total cases, presenting with lymph nodes, pleura, bone and genitourinary tract as the most common locations. Genitourinary tuberculosis, the second most common EPTB, is very difficult to diagnose unless there is a high index of suspicion. Isolated TB orchitis or prostatitis without clinical evidence of renal involvement is a rare entity among genitourinary tuberculosis...

BACKGROUND: Spontaneous pneumothorax (SP) is uncommon and can present as a primary disease process or as a result of underlying lung pathology. Several parenchymal lung diseases, such as malignancy, are known to cause SP. One such malignancy, angiosarcoma, has a high propensity to metastasize to the lung and present as cavitary and cystic lesions. CASE: We present a case of a 76-year-old male diagnosed with angiosarcoma of the scalp that was found to have extensive cystic pulmonary metastatic lesions...
