CONCLUSION: We recommend the establishment of comprehensive and detailed wound care registries to rapidly collect prospective data on the use of HBOT for these problem wounds. There is a strong case for appropriately powered, multi-centre randomized trials to establish the true efficacy and cost-effectiveness of HBOT especially for vasculitis ulcers that have not improved following immunosuppressive therapy.

Semin Neurol 2019; 39: 482-494 DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1687915Central nervous system (CNS) infections are a frequently underappreciated potential etiology of cerebrovascular disease. Highlighted in this review are a selection of infectious agents that lead to cerebrovascular complications through various mechanisms including multifocal vasculopathy, focal infiltrative vasculitis and vasospasm, and direct vessel wall invasion and thrombus formation. Diagnosis of stroke due to underlying CNS infection requires a high index of clinical suspicion and careful consideration of neuroimaging, serum, and cerebrospinal fluid studies in ...

We present the case of a 73-year-old man with IgA vasculitis after administration of acenocoumarol, confirmed by anatomopathological study. He had cutaneous, joint and renal involvement. With the reintroduction of the drug, the clinical manifestations worsened. They were completely resolved with its suspension, without additional maintenance treatment.ResumenSe presenta el caso de un varón de 73 años con vasculitis IgA tras la administración de acenocumarol, confirmada mediante estudio anatomopatológico.

ConclusionLipid levels increased during remission induction among patients with newly diagnosed AAV and those who were PR3 ‐ANCA positive. Disease activity and ANCA type should be considered when assessing lipid profiles to stratify CVD risk in patients with AAV.

Authors: Gupta N, Mahendran AJ, Chakrabarti S, Agrawal S Abstract A 28-year-old male was admitted for breathlessness, haemoptysis, fever and fatigue. The patient had occupational exposure to silica dust. Arterial blood gas test ABG revealed hypoxemic respiratory failure. Chest CT demonstrated ground glass opacities with interlobular septal thickening and small centrilobular nodules with patchy areas of consolidation in bilateral lungs. He was mechanically ventilated for refractory hypoxemia. The treatment with cyclophosphamide and methylprednisolone lead to recovery and extubation. The final diagnosis was diffuse a...

Authors: Ishtiaq R, Wilhelm DM, Ahmad S Abstract CMV infections are asymptomatic in immunocompetent patients but in immunocompromised patients, CMV infections have varying manifestations depending on their location. Patient who are organ transplant recipients, taking immunosuppressive therapy for a long time are at increased risk of CMV infections. CMV induced gastric ulcer is very rare but many cases have been reported in the literature. No case describing association between CMV related gastric ulcer and glomerulonephritis has not been reported in the literature so far. In this manuscript, we describe a case of p...
