Guillain-Barre Syndrome and Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome coexisting in a paraneoplastic neurologic syndrome? (P2.072)

CONCLUSIONS: We did not find other documented cases of GBS in the presence of SCCL or of LEMS and GBS coinciding. The presentation of the case is suspicious for a paraneoplastic neurologic syndrome supported by resolution of the symptoms with treatment of the tumor. SCCL may present with GBS and LEMS along with elevated titers for AGA and VCCC.Disclosure: Dr. Rodriguez Alvarez has nothing to disclose. Dr. Younan has nothing to disclose. Dr. Kugasia has nothing to disclose. Dr. Shah has nothing to disclose. Dr. Sternman has nothing to disclose. Dr. Thompson has nothing to disclose.

Authors: Chen T, Gilfix B, Rivera JA, Sadeghi N, Richardson K, Hier MP, Forest VI, Fishman D, Caglar D, Pusztaszeri M, Mitmaker EJ, Payne RJ Abstract Though the current gold standard for diagnosing thyroid nodule malignancy is ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (USFNA) cytology, about 20-25% of cytological evaluations are considered indeterminate for malignancy. This limitation has led to the emergence of next-generation sequencing panels, e.g. ThyroSeq v3 (TSv3), which recognize highly-diagnostic genetic mutations of common thyroid carcinomas in FNA samples and classifies them as test-negative or test-positi...

Authors: Jia S, Liu Y, Yuan J Abstract In this chapter, we focus on evidences in current guidelines for treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD). In Part 1, diet and lifestyle management is discussed, which plays an important role in CAD risk control, including forming healthy dietary pattern, maintaining proper body weight, physical exercise, smoking cessation, and so on. Part 2 elaborated on revascularization strategies and medical treatments in patients presenting with acute coronary syndrome (ACS), including specific AHA and ESC guidelines on ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and non-ST elevation ACS...

Authors: Amat-Samaranch V, Puig L Abstract Introduction: Psoriasis vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory skin disease characterized by well-demarcated red and scaly plaques. Most patients have mild disease that is usually controlled with topical treatment. Calcipotriene 0.05% and betamethasone dipropionate 0.064% (Cal/BD) in aerosol foam (Enstilar®) is a novel formulation, which has shown promising results in terms of efficacy and safety.Areas covered: This review evaluates the safety profile of Cal/BD aerosol foam and also the key points regarding to its efficacy. A literature search was performed in PubMed on No...

We present a case of a nodule on the earlobe of an elderly patient, without any known clinical history. Microscopic examination revealed a tumor with morphology reminiscent of metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma. The results of an extensive immunohistochemical (IHC) examination confirmed our initial diagnosis and further investigation of the patient's medical history revealed that a unilateral nephrectomy had been performed 27 years prior to the current tumor. We are reporting this case to emphasize the long interval between the primary tumor and its metastasis in an extremely unusual site, with a brief discussion o...

Authors: Roşu GA, Furău GO, Ionescu CA, Dimitriu MCT, Neacşu A, Ioan RG, Călin FD, Matei A, Bănacu M, Popescu I, Gheorghiu D, Neacşu I, Bacalbaşa N, Furău CG Abstract Epithelial ovarian carcinoma makes up 90-95% of all ovarian malignancies, taking into account also low-malignant-potential tumors. The Krukenberg tumor is a rare metastatic adenocarcinoma (ADK) in the ovary, representing 1-2% of ovarian tumors. Multiple primary malignant neoplasms may exist when more than one cancerous tumor is diagnosed in the same or a different organ. The incidence of multiple primary cancers among malignancies is between 2...
