Ocular tuberculosis  : A case series.

CONCLUSION: Ocular tuberculosis is a rare disease but still remains a diagnostic problem. It should be considered in case of any chronic ocular symptoms, especially in endemic countries. Early management can improve the visual prognosis. PMID: 29580651 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report the case of a 17-year-old patient with recurrent hemorrhagic pericardial effusion, who was diagnosed with primary pericardial fibrosarcoma. However, multiple radiological examinations, including CT and [18F] FDG/PET-CT, suggested the presence of fluid and no sign of tumor. Actually, when a patient presents with recurrent hemorrhagic pericardial effusions, pericardial tumors must be taken into account as part of the differential diagnosis.

ConclusionsBronchodilator dose responsiveness may be useful for phenotyping and may be of utility in practice and future studies focused on asthma outcomes or quantification of treatment responses. In children and adolescents, this phenotype of poor bronchodilator responsiveness may be associated with periods of relatively stable disease yet marked airway constriction in response to triggers, including tobacco smoke, respiratory infections/pneumonia, and aeroallergens.

ConclusionsThe trial demonstrated a favorable safety profile of the SQ HDM SLIT tablet in Japanese adult patients with AA. The treatment appeared to be efficacious in patients requiring rescue medication (ie, short-acting β2-agonist) at baseline in the efficacy assessment using asthma exacerbation during inhaled corticosteroid reduction (JapicCTI number 121847).

ChenAbstractA 42-year-old woman presented with a ten-day history of dysphagia, slight chest pain and occasional vomiting. With the performance of thoracic and abdominal enhanced computed tomography (CT) and upper gastrointestinal contrast, once esophageal cancer was suspected. Significant activity mass in esophagus and mediastinal lymph nodes could be found on the imaging of 18F-FDG PET/CT, which also supported malignancy. However, T...

CONCLUSIONS Our study described rare diseases in Chinese patients and our results enrich the phenotype spectrum of related diseases, as well as mutation spectrum of related genes, which might be significant for clinical disease diagnosis and prenatal diagnosis. PMID: 31603145 [PubMed - in process]

We report a tuberculosis contact case who presented with fever and constitutional complaints with imaging evidence of paravertebral and retroperitoneal soft tissue thickening. Further workup, including tissue biopsy ruled out tuberculosis and revealed diagnosis to be IgG4-related disease. Patient was started on oral steroids, which led to symptomatic improvement. In a TB endemic country such as ours, for a patient presenting with pleural and/or peritoneal fibrosis, a differential diagnosis of IgG4-RD must be kept. PMID: 31562725 [PubMed - in process]

Rationale: Rationale:Lymphomatoid granulomatosis is a very rare Epstein-Barr virus-driven lymphoproliferative disease. This disease has high mortality owing to its low incidence in conjunction with nonspecific presentations, which contribute to delays in diagnosis. Patient: Patient:An 87-year-old male had a week-long history of intermittent fever and general weakness. A chest radiograph showed multifocal patchy consolidations with nodular lesions. Diagnoses: Diagnoses:Open lung biopsy using video-assisted thoracic surgery resulted in a diagnosis of grade III lymphomatoid granulomatosis. Three days after surgery, Mycobact...

A 90-year-old man presented to the emergency department with a 2-week history of fever, intermittent cough and progressive dyspnoea. He had no previous medical history and was negative for human immunodeficiency virus infection. Chest radiography showed diffuse, bilateral, millet-seed sized lung nodules (Figure 1A). Thoracic high-resolution computed tomography revealed innumerable tiny micronodular lesions throughout the lung and peribronchovascular thickening in the perihilar regions (Figure 1B). Sputum and urine culture were positive forMycobacterium tuberculosis. Based on the clinical and radiographic findings, the pati...

Publication date: June 2016 Source:Journal of Microbiology, Immunology and Infection, Volume 49, Issue 3 Author(s): Tsung-Chia Chen, Ling-Tai Chou, Chen-Cheng Huang, An-Bang Lai, Jen-Hsien Wang Tuberculous liver abscess is a rare disease entity even in endemic areas of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It is usually accompanied by pulmonary tuberculosis or enteric tuberculosis. Further, an isolated tuberculous liver abscess is extremely rare. The disease is diagnosed by laparotomy or postmortem autopsy in most cases, and some authors adopted a 9-month antituberculosis regimen. We herein report a case of an isolated tuberc...
