Renal angiomyolipoma bleeding in a patient with TSC2/PKD1 contiguous gene syndrome after 17 years of renal replacement therapy.

We report the case of a 32-year-old male diagnosed with TSC2/PKD1 contiguous gene syndrome, presenting with tuberous sclerosis (TS) and autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease simultaneously. He progressed to end-stage renal disease and received a kidney transplant at the age of 12. The native kidneys presented angiomyolipomas (AML), which are common benign tumours in patients with TS. Seventeen years after transplantation, he presented with abdominal pain, anaemia and a retroperitoneal haematoma, the latter caused by renal AML bleeding. Selective embolisation was performed. Our patient could have benefited from the administration of mTOR inhibitors at transplant. This therapy is immunosuppressive and reduces the size of benign tumours in TS as well as the risk of rupture and bleeding. This patient did not receive mTOR inhibitors at the time of the transplant because the relationship between mTOR inhibitors and TS was unknown at that time. This case confirms the persistent risk of renal AML bleeding for both transplanted patients and patients on dialysis. As a result, we would recommend routine check-ups of native kidneys and nephrectomy assessment. PMID: 27595512 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Aim: To analyze the influence of systemic diseases, medications, smoking and a family history of RAS on the prevalence and the course of the condition in Polish patients with RAS. Material and methods: Seventy-eight patients with RAS and 72 subjects without a history of RAS were enrolled in the study. All participants underwent a detailed oral examination and a full blood count. The results were statistically analyzed with Statistica 10 (St...

Authors: Zhou J, Zhang W, Liu W, Sheng J, Li M, Chen X, Dong R Abstract Ten healthy adult Huang-huai white goats were selected and sacrificed by jugular vein bleeding after anesthesia to observe the distribution characteristics of the histological structure of the intestinal mucosa, goblet cells, IgA, and CD 3+ lymphocytes. Three sections of the duodenum, the jejunum, and the ileum were immediately collected and fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 72 h to prepare tissue sections. After HE, PAS, and immunohistochemical staining was performed, the distribution characteristics of goblet cells, IgA-positive cells, and C...

In conclusion, both painless ischemia and painful ischemia are associated with a gradual, significant increase in NT-proBNP/ULN in comparison to the double-negative hsTnI/AP subgroup. In contrast, NT-proBNP is significantly higher in only the subgroup with painful ischemia. PMID: 31320942 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Fragkos M, Barra V, Egger T, Bordignon B, Lemacon D, Naim V, Coquelle A Abstract Dicer, an endoribonuclease best-known for its role in microRNA biogenesis and RNA interference pathway, has been shown to play a role in the DNA damage response and repair of double-stranded DNA breaks (DSBs) in mammalian cells. However, it remains unknown whether Dicer is also important to preserve genome integrity upon replication stress. To address this question, we focused our study on common fragile sites (CFSs), which are susceptible to breakage after replication stress. We show that inhibition of the Dicer pathway leads...

Overexpression of TG2 enhances the differentiation of ectomesenchymal stem cells into neuron‑like cells and promotes functional recovery in adult rats following spinal cord injury. Mol Med Rep. 2019 Jul 15;: Authors: Shi W, Que Y, Lv D, Bi S, Xu Z, Wang D, Zhang Z Abstract Ectomesenchymal stem cells (EMSCs) represent a type of adult stem cells derived from the cranial neural crest. These cells are capable of self‑renewal and have the potential for multidirectional differentiation. Tissue transglutaminase type 2 (TG2) is a ubiquitously expressed member of the transglutaminase family of Ca2+‑depend...

UA promotes epithelial‑mesenchymal transition in peritoneal mesothelial cells. Mol Med Rep. 2019 Jul 09;: Authors: Duan CY, Han J, Zhang CY, Wu K, Lin Y Abstract Long‑term peritoneal dialysis is often limited or interrupted due to the development and progression of peritoneal fibrosis. Accumulating evidence suggests that epithelial‑mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a major component of peritoneal injury associated with peritoneal fibrosis in the end stage of renal disease; however, at present, the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Thus, in the present study, uric acid (UA)‑induced EMT of peri...
