Cheema, Preethi Ramachandran, Sonu SahniAbstractRenal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a highly vascular tumor, which may spread to the lungs and other organs. It often presents with localized or systemic manifestation, including paraneoplastic syndromes. Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatous inflammatory disease characterized by non-caseating granulomas that typically afflicts the respiratory system. In the absence of any evidence of systemic sarcoidosis they are referred to as sarcoid-like reactions. ...

Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatous disease of unknown etiology that affects the lungs in 90% of patients, but has a wide range of disease manifestations and outcomes including chronic and progressive courses. Noninvasive biomarkers are needed to assess these outcomes and guide decisions for long term monitoring and treatment. Interferon-gamma (IFN- γ)-inducible chemotactic cytokines (chemokines), CXCL9, CXCL10 and CXCL11, show promise in this regard because they have been implicated in the pathogenesis of and reflect the burden of granulomatous inflammation.

AbstractTwo cases of misdiagnoses of lymphomatoid granulomatosis are discussed here. Lymphomatoid granulomatosis is an Epstein-Barr virus-associated lymphoproliferative disorder with aggressive behavior. Due to its rarity and many presentations, delay in diagnosis and treatment is common. Its histological features including large atypical B-cells, T cell predominance, angiocentricity, necrosis, and evidence of EBV-positive cells should elicit the diagnosis of lymphomatoid granulomatosis. The settings that are described here have not yet been described in the literature.

In conclusion, we describe the genetic and epidemiological traits of several novel APVs discovered in six different bird species, some of which were not previously known to harbor PVs. We demonstrate that the genome organization of all currently known APVs is very similar and that there is some synteny in the phylogenetic relationships of APVs and their avian hosts, with evidence for virus–host co-divergence. Cross-species transmission events seem to occur between genetically closely related hosts and our findings show how host behavior can affect viral ecology and evolution. Ethics Statement This study was carried...

Despite the requirement for histopathological evidence to make a definite diagnosis of cardiac sarcoidosis, the sensitivity of endomyocardial biopsy is still low. Recently, Japanese Circulation Society suggests a new strategy that patients diagnosed clinically do not require the endomyocardial biopsy evidence. Physicians should familiarize themselves with such paradigm shifts. Key Clinical MessageDespite the requirement for histopathological evidence to make a definite diagnosis of cardiac sarcoidosis, the sensitivity of endomyocardial biopsy is still low.
