We present an updated report of renal medullary carcinoma (RMC), a rare and aggressive condition.Recent FindingsThere is a majority of male patients, of African descent, in the second or third decade of life. In differential diagnosis, other tumors, such as malignant rhabdoid tumor (MRT), vinculin-anaplastic lymphoma kinase (VCL-ALK) translocation renal cell carcinoma, and collecting duct carcinoma, may present difficulties. Abnormalities of tumor suppressor gene SMARCB1 have been found in RMC. Reported symptoms were hematuria, pain, weight loss, respiratory distress, palpable mass, cough, and fever. Most patients present ...

Bronchiectasis, long considered an "orphan" disease, is now increasing in prevalence in both Europe [1] and North America [2]. Characterised by chronic cough with sputum production and permanently dilated airways [3], advanced disease may result in respiratory insufficiency due to airway obstruction. Many patients suffer from substantially impaired quality of life [4, 5], likely due to chronic respiratory symptoms (dyspnoea, cough, sputum production, wheeze), respiratory exacerbations, fatigue, exercise limitation, psychological symptoms, and constitutional manifestations of chronic infection and inflammation.
