FDG PET/CT Findings of Intracardiac Myeloid Sarcoma

We presented here the FDG PET/CT findings of a 66-year-old man with a 3-month history of cough and progressive dyspnea. FDG PET/CT scan demonstrated nonuniform FDG uptake in the cardiac walls and pericardium. Biopsy of the heart revealed myeloid sarcoma. In addition, bone marrow biopsy demonstrated the acute myeloid leukemia.

Using conditional ablation, we show these contrasting genotypes result in different functional effects in hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). Loss of Dnmt3a bestows enhanced self-renewal on HSCs in serial, competitive repopulation assays while Tet...

Discussion: A tertiary referral center referred 125 individuals to physiotherapy who were eligible for the study; we finally included 93 individuals for statistical analysis. Multiple backward regression analysis showed that gender (95% confidence interval [CI], 2.05-33.82), weight (95% CI, 0.39-1.02), age (95% CI, −0.91 to −0.04), left handgrip strength (95% CI, 0.14-1.44), and inspiratory muscle strength (95% CI, 0.08-0.38) were all independently associated with muscle surface area at L3. All these variables together explained 66% of the variability (R2) in muscle surface area at L3 (P

I have seen that a few companies are offering paid leave if their workers test positive for COVID19. In theory this is great. In reality, this is bogus.  Policies are worded very specifically. Most of the statements I have seen that list paid leave are for patients that TEST positive for COVID19. The problem is we do not have enough tests! At my practice (a large, tertiary, University-based clinic in Southern California), we are operating under the assumption that most people who contract COVID19 will have a mild form of the disease that will not require a hospital admission. However, they will need...

A 69-year-old man presented to our hospital with shortness of breath and cough. He had a history of essential hypertension but no known significant cardiovascular or pulmonary disease. Almost 1 year before the patient was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia with detectable mutations of the nucleophosmin 1 (NPM1) and FLT3 internal tandem duplication (FLT3-ITD) gene. After induction chemotherapy, bone marrow aspiration revealed refractory acute myeloid leukemia with blast persistence, and antileukemic therapy was switched to the multikinase inhibitor sorafenib, resulting in cytologic remission.
