Among the isolated actinomycetes, strain GRG 4 exhibited excellent ability to inhibit colistin resistant (CR) Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Klebsiella pneumonia, which emerging threat to the world. The strain was identified as Streptomyces coer...

Madam — We observed a clinical link between radical radiotherapy and Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia (PJP) in patients with lung cancer. The incidence of PJP in this population has been reported as 2.6 cases per 100 000 person-years [1]. This infection in HIV-negative patients is known to carry a mort ality of 50% [2]. We determined the risk of death from PJP in a cohort of patients treated with curative-intent radiotherapy.

We describe the case of an 81-year-old male with cT1aN2M1b stage IV pleomorphic carcinoma of the left upper lobe of the lung. After primary treatment with carboplatin and paclitaxel, recurrence was observed in the left supraclavicular lymph node and left adrenal gland. We initiated the administration of nivolumab as a secondary treatment. Reduction was observed in the swelling of the left supraclavicular lymph node and left adrenal gland, but the tumor shadow in the right upper lobe appeared to increase. Bronchoscopy was performed, and the biopsy result showed granulomas; the findings resembled a sarcoid-like granulomatous...

Authors: Papakonstantinou NA, Zisis C, Kouvidou C, Stratakos G Abstract Radiofrequency ablation is an effective treatment for atrial fibrillation. Pulmonary vein stenosis/occlusion is one of its rare complications. Herein, the case of a 50-year-old man with hemoptysis and migratory pulmonary infiltrations after transcatheter radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation is presented. Initially, pneumonia, interstitial pulmonary disease, or lung cancer was suspected, but wedge resection revealed hemorrhagic infiltrations. Chest computed tomography pulmonary angiography detected no left superior pulmonary vein due ...

Imaging and pathological studies revealed NSCLC, not otherwise specified (NOS), at clinical stage T3N1M0 stage IIIA. We started radiotherapy alone because of obstructive pneumonia and end-stage renal disease, but the tumors progressed rapidly and resulted in death d...

CONCLUSIONS: High mortality was observed among patients with TB aged ≥80 years. Increased vigilance is warranted to avoid delayed diagnosis and reduce the transmission risk, especially among elderly patients with co-morbidities living in old age homes.
