Generalized lymphadenopathy is a common cause of concern for both patients and clinicians. Possible etiologies include infections, malignancies and autoimmune diseases. Kikuchi Fujimoto disease (KFD) is a hyperergic condition that presents with fever, lymphadenopathy and can include systemic involvement, thus being easily mistaken for the above-mentioned entities. We report the case of a previously healthy 18- year old male who presented with a selflimiting generalized lymphadenopathy, high fevers, skin vasculitis and polyserositis...

Actinomycosis is a subacute or chronic suppurative bacterial infection which caused because of filamentous gram-positive, anaerobic to microaerophilic nonacid fast bacilli primarily of the genus Actinomyces that normally colonize the mouth, colon, and vagina. Primary cutaneous actinomycosis is a rare entity and is generally associated with trauma. A 61- year-old Yemeni male firstly presented to the surgical department in King Fahd Central Hospital with multiple swelling, petted lesions and boring of sensation in the right foot...

A 67-year-old male with past medical history of mantle cell lymphoma and atrial fibrillation presented with a truncal rash, bilateral lower extremity weakness, and confusion. Within three days of presentation, his condition rapidly deteriorated with the onset of diffuse flaccid paralysis, aphasia, and severe alteration in mental status. Initial results from serum studies, lumbar puncture, magnetic resonance imaging, and electroencephalogram were not diagnostic. However, on the ninth day after initial presentation, the West Nile Virus (WNV) immunoglobulin M antibody returned positive from the cerebrospinal fluid...

In recent years, influenza infection in the pediatric population has been a widescale issue that physicians face during the winter season. Medications used to treat and prevent such infections include Oseltamivir, an anti-viral neuraminidase inhibitor developed for both influenzas A and B. The most commonly well-known and manifesting adverse effects are nausea, vomiting and gastrointestinal upset. There is paucity of reports on other potential serious side effects of Oseltamivir in the pediatric population...

Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are among the most frequent implicated drugs in acute tubulointerstitial nephritis (ATIN), nevertheless it is important to report cases with atypical profiles. A 80-year-old female, exposed during 34 months to omeprazole, presented with polyclonal hypergammaglobulinaemia and renal failure. After stopping omeprazole there was a partial improvement in serum creatinine and IgG. Renal biopsy revealed ATIN; immunohistochemistry for IgG4 was negative. Treatment with steroids and mycophenolate sodium improved renal function and normalized immunoglobulins...

Kidney and inferior vena cava (IVC) abnormalities with extensive deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a very rare cause of DVT and has a diverse clinical presentation. Computed tomography (CT) angiography is the gold standard for diagnosis and treatment including thrombectomy, thrombolysis and systemic anticoagulation. We present a rare case of active young healthy male admitted with acute onset of right lower extremity pain and swelling who was found to have extensive DVT on doppler ultrasound. CT abdomen showed extensive clot burden involving right common femoral vein extending into internal and external iliac veins associated with IVC hypoplasia and hypoplastic left kidney...

The spectrin repeat-containing nuclear envelope protein 1 ( SYNE1 ) gene encodes a family of spectrin structural proteins that are associated with anchoring the plasma membrane to the actin cytoskeleton. SYNE1 -related disease is most commonly reported in autosomal recessive spinocerebellar ataxia 8, which demonstrates variable age of onset with a median of 30 years of age. However pathogenic mutations in SYNE1 are also causative of arthrogryposis multiplex congenital, a severe congenital neuromuscular condition...

The increasing number of incidental intracranial aneurysms creates a dilemma of which aneurysms to treat and which to observe. Clinical scoring systems consider risk factors for aneurysm rupture however objective parameters for assessment of aneurysms stability are needed. We retrospectively analysed contrast enhancing behaviour of un-ruptured aneurysms in the black blood magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in N=71 patients with 90 aneurysms and assessed correlation between aneurysm wall contrast enhancement (AWCE) and aneurysm anatomy and clinical scoring systems...

Juvenile ossifying fibroma is a benign fibro-osseous lesion commonly affecting the extra-gnathic craniofacial skeleton of the young individuals. The psammomatoid and trabecular variants are its two histopathological subtypes having distinctive clinico-pathological characteristics. Secondary aneurysmal bone cysts are frequently reported to arise in the pre-existing fibro-osseous lesions but rarely reported in the psammmomatoid variant of the juvenile ossifying fibroma. Such hybrid lesions, especially massive in size, tend to exhibit a greater aggressive growth potential and higher recurrence rate and mandate complete surgical removal of the lesion along with a long-term follow-up...

Elevated troponin and atypical chest pain in the setting of septicemia and Type II Non ST elevation myocardial infarction is frequently encountered. These cases are not necessarily scheduled for emergent cardiac catheterization. High index of clinical suspicion and continuous in-patient cardiac monitoring with serial trending of cardiac enzymes are important in such cases. Subsequent sudden development of electrocardiogram changes requires prompt investigation with emergent coronary catheterization. These types of cases may be missed especially in females who present with atypical chest pain and in patients with Left bundle branch block...

Shafee Salloum, Christopher J Bugnitz
Infective endocarditis is a rare disease in children, and it can result in significant morbidity and mortality. The epidemiology of infective endocarditis in children has shifted in recent years with less rheumatic heart disease, more congenital heart disease survival, and increased use of central venous catheters in children with chronic illness. Less commonly, infective endocarditis occurs in children with no preexisting cardiac disease or other known risk factors. We present a "case of" 10 year-old girl with no known cardiac disease or any other risk factors who was diagnosed with infective endocarditis according to modified Duke criteria...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the frequency of clinical manifestations of various types of rickets in patients could be effective in therapeutic strategies. A total of eleven child patients (7 females and 4 males) were included in the present study. The patients were admitted to the hospital with hypophosphatemic rickets. In our study, the age at the time of diagnosis ranged from 1 to15 years. Mean age of first presentations at final diagnosis was determined to be 5.5 an 2 years, respectively. Five patients out of 11 patients had showed significant history of vitamin D3 resistance...

Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is an uncommon complication of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Solitary association of fatal spinal SAH as a complication of SLE, has not been encountered much in literature although coexisting acute cerebral and spinal SAH have been associated with SLE. We present a 39-year old female with initial diagnosis of SLE eight years ago who suddenly developed a productive cough, acute abdomen and paralysis of the lower limbs. Magnetic resonance imaging of the spine revealed thoracic spinal SAH with varying degrees of thoracic spinal cord compression...

The increasing use of radiological examination, especially magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), will probably increase the risk of unintended discovery of bone marrow abnormalities in patients where a hematologic disease would not be expected. In this paper we present four patients with different hematologic malignancies of nonplasma cell types. In all patients the MRI bone marrow abnormalities represent an initial presentation of the disease. These case reports illustrate the importance of a careful diagnostic follow-up without delay of patients with MRI bone marrow abnormalities, because such abnormalities can represent the first sign of both acute promyelocytic leukemia as well as other variants of acute leukemia...

Perioperative management of a neonate with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is challenging because of pulmonary hypoplasia, pulmonary hypertension, and respiratory insufficiency. In this report, we present our intra-operative experience in a 4-days old and 3070 grams CDH neonate. He was admitted to neonatal intensive care unit and intubated due to severe respiratory insufficiency. He showed signs of severe pulmonary hypoplasia and his echocardiography revealed a cardiac dextroversion. The patient was relatively stabilized after four days under combined high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) and inhaled nitric oxide (iNO)...

Amyloidosis is a complex group of disorders that can involve many organs and cause their dysfunction. Cardiac involvement indicates worse prognosis and influences treatment strategies. Cardiac amyloidosis is an under-diagnosed entity and high index of clinical suspicion and careful interpretation of basic diagnostic tools such as electrocardiogram and echocardiography is needed for early detection. Congestive heart failure due to restrictive pattern and/or conduction system abnormality, in absence of coronary artery disease should raise suspicion...

Having a uterine scar places a woman at increased risk of complications, such as Cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP), uterine rupture, placenta previa, and placenta accreta, in subsequent pregnancies. We report a case of uterine rupture at 11 weeks of gestation in a woman with a previous Cesarean section. A 43-year-old woman with a history of abdominal myomectomy and Cesarean section had her pregnancy induced by in vitro fertilization with donor eggs. The exact location of the gestational sac was identified on her first day of hospitalization, and her pregnancy was suspected to be a CSP...
