A 14-year-old male patient presented with a nonproductive cough, weight loss, fatigue, and malaise. A chest radiograph showed large bilateral cavitary lung lesions in both upper and lower lobes that failed to improve with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medications. Infectious and rheumatologic work-ups were negative. Thoracoscopic lung biopsies were diagnostic for nodular lymphocyte predominant Hodgkin lymphoma (NLPHL). The patient received combination chemotherapy and immunotherapy based on current treatment standards with an excellent clinical response. NLPHL is a rare B-cell lymphoma that typically presents as periph...

This study shows that adding RTX antigen to an appropriate dose of aP can enhance protection against B. pertussis challenge in mice.
Abstract INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to evaluate the current indications for and clinical factors influencing the use of transnasal esophagoscopy (TNE). METHODS: An online survey was sent to American Broncho-Esophagological Association members, including questions on demographics, indications, and factors influencing the use of TNE.

Recently we have shown that the RNA chaperone Hfq plays a significant role in virulence of Bordetella pertussis. This suggested that Hfq-dependent small regulatory RNAs could be involved in modulation of gene expression in this re-emerging pathogen. High through-put RNA sequencing methods combined with biocomputational tools revealed hundreds of putative non-coding RNAs...

Acute onset abdominal pain constitutes a significant proportion of emergency department visits, but only a small fraction of these cases are attributable to vascular pathologies (Bauersfeld, 1947 ). In this case, report, we present an incidental diagnosis of Spontaneous Isolated Superior Mesenteric Artery Dissection (SISMAD). A 69-year-old man was admitted to the emergency department complaining of fever, loss of appetite, vague epigastric pain, dysuria, and a productive cough for several days.
