Discussion Pulmonary embolism (PE) is potentially life-threatening but fortunately rare event especially in the pediatric population. It was first described in children in 1861. PE is likely underreported because of minimal or non-specific clinical symptoms. The incidence is estimated at 0.05-4.2% with the 4.2% based on autopsy reports. It is probably also increasing as more central venous catheters (CVC) are used, and more children are surviving previously poor prognostic diseases. There is a bimodal distribution with cases

ConclusionsPrimary effusion lymphoma is a very rare entity that represents 4% of non-Hodgkin ’s lymphoma cases associated with human immunodeficiency virus and 0.1% to 1% of all lymphomas in patients with another type of immunodeficiency in regions where human herpes virus type 8 is not endemic. This reported case is an unusual presentation of primary effusion lymphoma because it occurred in an immunocompetent human immunodeficiency virus-negative adult woman without the presence of Kaposi’s sarcoma or Castleman’s disease and for whom the clinical course after chemotherapy was successful. However, the rup...

We report a case of invasive mucormycosis in 52 year-old woman. CT-scan and magnetic resonance imaging found a partial right sinus thrombosis associated with homolateral ethmoidal and maxillary sinusitis with submucosal inflammation. Histopathological examination of excised tissue was positive for mucormycosis. Our patient was treated by surgical debridement and a combination of amphotericin B and caspofungin, with a good outcome.

Authors: Leo M, Ponziani FR, Nesci A, Santoliquido A, Vecchio FM, Francalanci P, Pompili M Abstract Low molecular weight heparins (LMWH) are a class of drugs including various molecules that inhibit predominantly the factor V of coagulation and are used in a wide range of clinical settings for the management of venous thromboembolism and acute coronary syndrome. Despite LMWH are considered safe and associated with a lower incidence of side effects compared to unfractioned heparin, it is worth considering that the use of LWMH can be associated with complications. Some of these, such as bleeding and thrombocytopenia,...

Isolated hepatic artery occlusion is usually considered an unlikely cause of significant hepatic ischemia in nontransplant patients. A 43-year-old nontransplant male patient with a history of atrial fibrillation treated with dabigatran presented with encephalopathy related to fulminant hepatitis (aspartate transaminase 19,250 UI/L, alanine transaminase 6,473 UI/L, international normalized ratio 8). Computerized tomographic scan demonstrated an occluded common hepatic artery (Fig a), a patent portal vein, and a left atrial appendage thrombus.

In this study of the National Trauma Data Bank Data set (2007–2009 and 2010–2016), these rates were reexamined and risk factors associated with these complications were assessed. Data quality is improved in the later data set; the incidence of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism was 0.28% and 0.21%, respectively, in the 2010–2016 data. Prophylaxis, male gender, treatment in a university hospital, open reduction, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and hypertension were notable significant risk factors for pulmonary embolism. For deep venous thrombosis, male gender, bleeding disorder, angina, ...
