We report a case of agranulocytosis resulting from ceftriaxone noted more than 3 weeks into therapy. CASE PRESENTATION: A 72-year-old woman who was started on ceftriaxone for septic arthritis of the left knee 3 weeks before presentation was admitted to the hospital after being found to be neutropenic on outpatient laboratory analysis. Her absolute neutrophil count on admission was 0/μL. The cause of the agranulocytosis was suspected to be ceftriaxone. The drug was stopped, and she was started on granulocyte colony-stimulating factor with gradual resolution of the neutropenia. DISCUSSION: Serious adverse effects ...

Authors: Paul R, Nandi A, Roy D, Ghosh R, Sau TJ, Thakur I, Sarkar R Abstract Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a multisystem disease with a variety of manifestations. Vasculitis and myositis are two very rare complications of RA. However, the coexistence of both of these complications in the same patient is extremely rare in medical literature. We here present such a rare association of clinical features in a 36 year old male patient with RA. He had RA for around four years before development of these complications almost simultaneously. The patient was treated with rituximab and oral steroids. The myositis component r...

Abstract Introduction: Lowered pressure pain thresholds have been demonstrated in adults with Ehlers‐Danlos Hypermobility type(EDS‐HT), however it remains unclear if these findings are also present in children. Therefore, the objectives of the study were to: (1)determine if generalized hyperalgesia is present in Hypermobility syndrome (HMS)/EDS‐HT children, (2)explore potential differences in pressure pain thresholds between HMS/EDS‐HT children and adults, and (3)determine the discriminative value of generalized hyperalgesia. Methods: Patients classified in one of three groups: HMS/EDS‐HT, hypermobile (Beighton s...

Psoriatic arthritis can be a debilitating condition. It can lead to painful complications such as neuropathy. Its treatments can lead to complications such as shingles, which can leave a patient with continuing pain. Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is for most patients a painful condition that leads to spontaneous dislocations, early arthritis, and frequent migraines. My husband and I have decades of experience between us in living with these conditions. My husband and I are also physicians with 57 years experience working with patients between us. We have a world of inside information from both sides of the aisle on the chronic pa...

Swan neck deformity, or hyperextension of the proximal interphalangeal joint, may occur secondary to trauma, rheumatoid arthritis, cerebral palsy, or Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, and can be treated with tenodesis of one slip of the flexor digitorum sublimis tendon. This technique has several variations, differing primarily in the specific location and method that a single slip of the flexor digitorum sublimis tendon is secured, but they all serve to create a static volar restraint against hyperextension.

This article focuses on reconstruction of the ligamentum teres (LT) of the hip using a tibialis anterior allograft to treat severe instability and pain in a 43 year-old female with EDS. The LT reconstruction was accompanied by labral repair and capsular plication. The patient was assessed pre- and postoperatively using modified Harris Hip Score (mHHS), Hip Outcome Score Activities of Daily Living (HOS-ADLS), Hip Outcome Score Sports Specific Subscale (HOS-SSS), Non Arthritic Hip Score (NAHS), Visual Analog Scale (VAS), and satisfaction. One year following surgery the patient has reported positive outcomes in terms of pain ...
