A 78 years-old woman was found with worsening hypercalcemia, osteopenia and memory loss during the past 2 years. Multiple, repeated imaging studies failed to reveal the aetiology of the primary hyperparathyroidism. Bilateral neck exploration revealed a 4.5X2,3 cm right superior parathyroid adenoma in an ectopic position.
We are reporting a case of neurofibromatosis type 1 in a genotype-phenotype correlation and chromosomal microarray test revealed a submicroscopic deletion on the long arm of chromosome 17, which is associated with a more severe phenotype. The presence of a more severe phenotype warrants precise monitoring of complications.
Device insertion is a common cardiovascular procedure. Devices are implanted into the right heart; which is a safeguard against systemic thromboembolism. Lead insertion into the left ventricle is rare. This is a case of a defibrillator lead inadvertently inserted into the left cavity. This was discovered 6 years later.
Metastasis of renal cell carcinoma to the heart is a rare event. Herein we present a case of renal cell carcinoma presenting with progressive fatigue, abdominal pain, and weight loss. Imaging studies revealed complex renal mass with extension to right atrium and histopathology confirmed the metastatic renal cell carcinoma.
Our patient is a 19-year-old female who presented with left shoulder pain. Diagnostic arthroscopy revealed an articular-sided supraspinatus tear. When the shoulder was taken out of traction and placed in 90 degrees of abduction and external rotation, we visualized the biceps tendon directly impinging the undersurface of the supraspinatus tendon.
We report mild COVID-19 manifestation in high-risk patient with sufficient plasma 25-OH-Vitamin D3 level. Given the global pandemic of vitamin D deficiency, as well as its likely beneficial effects during SARS-CoV-2 infection, report highlights importance of routine 25-OH-Vitamin D3 measurement, either for clinical course prediction or deciding on supplementation.
We present a case of a young woman with a mangled leg, that could be salvaged with a combination of negative pressure wound therapy, Matriderm® augmented split-skin grafting, and maggot biodebridement. The aim of this case report is to outline alternative treatment options in severe soft tissue injuries.
A 14-year-old boy presented to our Emergency Department complaining of fever, and abdominal pain. An abdominal computed tomography showed a large abscess of the spleen. Percutaneous aspiration of the lesion was performed. Splenectomy was performed 38 days after percutaneous aspiration because of the abscess's considerable size.
We present a unique Richter's transformation case in CNS with identical to CLL clonal origin in a patient treated with Venetoclax. With our case we make implications on whether Venetoclax penetrates the blood-brain barrier and we address the debating issue of the appropriate Venetoclax dose in case of drug-drug interactions.
Hepatorenal syndrome is a rare life-threatening complication of acetaminophen toxicity. It is not responsive to fluid therapy and need performing an emergent liver transplantation. Here, we introduce a 24-year-old woman with a history of chronic high doses of acetaminophen consumption, presenting with nausea, vomiting, lethargy, oliguria, and severe metabolic acidosis.
Pustular psoriasis is a rare, acute form of psoriasis. It can be triggered by pregnacy, infection, hypocalcemia, and medications. We describe a case of annular pustular psoriasis Milian Katchoura type, a rare variant of pustular psoriasis, that occurred secondary to reducing the dose of oral corticosteroids.
In this case report we present a case of a eight years old boy who presented with progressive orbital cellulitis causing endangered vision secondary to carious primary maxillary molar. The patient was appropriately managed with intravenous antibiotics, steroids and surgical decompression. Significant morbidity was overcome by multi-specialty team approach.
A case of a 42-year-old woman, Para 3 who had an unplanned pregnancy despite bilateral tubal ligation for contraception, and Novasure® endometrial ablation for persistent Heavy Menstrual Bleeding (HMB). The pregnancy was complicated by missed miscarriage at 14 weeks and placenta accreta. This is an uncommon event.
