Midventricular obstruction (MVO) is a rare form of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). While surgical treatment for HCM is among the most technically challenging cardiac operations for acquired disease, surgery for MVO is rarely reported. A 38-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a cough and dyspnea. Transthoracic and transesophageal echography and computed tomography revealed extensive left ventricular hypertrophy, extending from the anteroseptal wall to the apex, and marked papillary muscle hypertrophy...

Unexpected encounters during surgery for obesity such as midgut malrotation cause specific technical challenges to the surgeon. We present a rare case of asymptomatic complete intestinal malrotation midway during a one anastomosis gastric bypass procedure. A 62-year-old male with a body mass index of 49 kg/m2 and metabolic syndrome was planned for one anastomosis gastric bypass. A gastric tube was created along the lesser curvature. During the attempt to identify the suitable small bowel loop, an unexpected completely malrotated gut was noted...

Although disseminated cryptococcosis can occur occasionally, it is most commonly seen in immunodeficient patients. In 2005, a 43-year-old man was diagnosed with polycythemia vera. Following in 2018, he experienced an unknown-cause fever and headache. To establish the source of the symptoms, a magnetic resonance imaging scan of the brain was performed, which indicated meningeal and gyral-leptomeningeal thickening and several localized T2 hyperintense lesions measuring up to 10 × 14 mm in diameter. Cryptococcus neoformans was then cultivated from cerebrospinal fluid...

Pancreatic masses are commonly encountered in clinical practice, with concern for the possibility of cancer. Tissue sampling or outright surgical resection may be offered in this setting. However, surgery has been unnecessarily performed in patients with pancreatic masses that proved to be benign. Less invasive options for pancreatic masses that may be benign like tuberculosis should thus be explored. Three adult Filipino patients less than 60 years old presented with symptomatic pancreatic masses suspected of cancer on abdominal imaging studies...

Allergic respiratory diseases can increase serum carcinoembryonic antigen levels. We report three cases experiencing allergic symptoms that proved refractory to inhaled corticosteroids but exhibited a positive response to long-term treatment with oral corticosteroids. This response was characterized by a synchronous alteration in serum eosinophil counts and carcinoembryonic antigen levels. Immunofluorescence assays indicated localized carcinoembryonic antigen production within eosinophils. In addition, we conducted a systematic review of patients exhibiting similar characteristics on PubMed...

We report the case of a patient who exhibits a concurrent diagnosis of type 1 diabetes mellitus, Gitelman syndrome and Cacci-Ricci disease. A 27-year-old male patient was diagnosed with Gitelman syndrome at the age of 3 years. Fourteen years later, he developed an autoantibody-negative type 1 diabetes mellitus. Cacci-Ricci's disease was revealed by terminal hematuria and considered in view of the appearance found on the computed tomography (CT) scan. The finger-prick blood glucose level was 6 g/dl with no acetonuria...

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that may progress to erythroderma in severe cases. Biologic agents such as dupilumab have recently become the mainstay of systemic treatment for moderate-to-severe cases, yet many patients remain refractory to therapy. Here, we present a case of erythrodermic atopic dermatitis, resistant to prednisone and dupilumab, with remarkably rapid achievement of remission following treatment with upadacitinib, an oral selective Janus kinase 1 inhibitor.

Deficiency of adenosine deaminase 2 is a rare monogenic multi-organ disease of children and less often adults resulting from mutations in the adenosine deaminase 2 gene. We present a case of a 35-year-old Palestinian male with adenosine deaminase 2 deficiency and maturity-onset diabetes of the young type 2. The patient initially presented with complaints of swelling in his neck and night sweats, leading to a diagnosis of Hodgkin lymphoma. Subsequent evaluation revealed a recurrence of Hodgkin lymphoma, along with symptoms of otitis media, upper respiratory tract infection, and a rash around the mouth...

Subarachnoid hemorrhage is a neurological emergency in which arterial blood accumulates in the subarachnoid space with cerebral aneurysmal rupture being the most common cause. Subarachnoid hemorrhage is often misdiagnosed in the emergency department and mortality rates range from 8% to 67%. It may be the manifestation of the chronicity of the migraine. The difference in severity or quality compared to previous headaches, and other symptoms, particularly neck stiffness, but also seizure, syncope, focal neurological deficit, and vomiting are the key factors differentiating subarachnoid hemorrhage from the migraine...

Adrenal gland cysts are rare and uncommon manifestations. Mostly asymptomatic, discovered incidentally during radiological studies or at autopsy, or without characteristic symptoms. The spectrum of these entities may include benign cysts or malignant cystic neoplasms. They are classified into four types: pseudocysts, endothelial cysts, epithelial cysts, and parasitic cysts. Though pseudocysts are reported to be the most frequently clinically recognized adrenal cysts in surgical series, endothelial cysts are more frequent in autopsy series...

Rocky Mountain spotted fever, a potentially fatal tick-borne disease thought to be confined to specific climates and geographic locations, is expanding its reach due to climate change. This is demonstrated by a 73-year-old woman who contracted Rocky Mountain spotted fever outside endemic areas during travel in Canada. Presenting with fevers, arthralgia, weakness, non-bloody diarrhea, conjunctivitis, mild cough, and a rash, this patient was initially started on moxifloxacin (400 mg PO/day) for suspected pneumonia...

Mucoepidermoid carcinoma is a malignant tumor that arises from the salivary glands. The recommended treatment strategy typically involves surgical intervention, sometimes complemented by radiotherapy, depending on the histological grade of the tumor. A case of a 22-year-old female patient without medical history was described. The clinical examination revealed a bluish lesion located on the hard palate. The histological examination confirmed the diagnosis of a low-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma. Resection of the lesion was performed and oro-nasal communication was immediately closed by a prosthetic obturator and later on by a rotational palate flap...

Gastric volvulus and wandering spleen are two rare and uncommon conditions. Gastric volvulus is characterized by the rotation of the stomach around itself, causing a closed obstruction. It was first described in the 19th century and is classified according to the axis, etiology, or chronicity. A wandering spleen is defined by the absence of one or all of the splenic ligaments, which occurs either for congenital or acquired reasons. An enlarged spleen may contribute to the wandering spleen and, in turn, lead to gastric volvulus and infarction of the stomach, requiring emergency surgical intervention...

A 46-year-old male presented with a 6-year history of progressive, purplish-red, hyperkeratotic papules on the scrotum. These lesions bled during intercourse and routine activities, causing significant distress. Clinical examination and pathological evaluation confirmed the diagnosis of angiokeratoma of Fordyce. Due to patient preference and cost-effectiveness, sclerotherapy with 3% sodium tetradecyl sulfate was chosen. Following topical anesthesia, the lesions were injected with the sclerosing agent. After two sessions spaced 2 weeks apart, complete resolution of both the smaller and larger lesions was achieved...
