All cs-mucin family members have structural features that enable them to act as a releasable decoy barrier to mucosal pathogens, by providing ligands for pathogen binding and the ability to shed the bound extracellular domain. Due ...

Publication date: Available online 15 April 2019Source: Respiratory Medicine Case ReportsAuthor(s): Asma Iftikhar, Muhammad A.I. 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. ...

​Seventy-five percent of trauma injuries involve some kind of thoracic insult, a quarter of which need a procedural intervention like a chest tube. (Surg Clin North Am 2007;87[1]:95; http://bit.ly/2HaoX90.) Long-term illness, lung disease, and post-operative complications may cause pleural effusions or a pneumothorax, so treating these conditions quickly can significantly decrease patient morbidity and mortality. Other indications for chest tube placement include:Trauma: Pneumothorax, hemopneumothorax, or tension pneumothoraxLong-term illness: Pleural effusion (cancer, pneumonia)Infection: Empyema, purulent pleuriti...

A 60-year-old multi-morbid male patient with polycystic kidney disease and secondary chronic renal insufficiency stage G5 A3 according to Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) classification was referred to our hospital with radiological differential diagnoses of sarcoidosis, ectasia of the pulmonary arteries, lymphoma, or central bronchial carcinoma with contralateral hilar lymph node metastases. He had concomitant arterial hypertension, manifest osteoporosis due to renal osteopathy, secondary compensated renal hyperparathyroidism, compensated metabolic renal acidosis, and diabetes mellitus type 2.

We present here preliminary descriptive data on the patients' characteristics and their established diagnosis at follow-up.Methods: Since 2015, all patients aged ≥15 years and referred to the hematology or internal medicine department in 117 French hospitals, with an unexplained SM diagnosis (confirmed by echography or CT-scan with a craniocaudal length ≥13 cm) have been invited to participate. Unexplained cause of SM was defined as a first negative clinical workup based on patient's interview and physical examination, and biological routine tests (including complete blood and reticulocytes count, clotting test, live...

Conclusion: Routine microbiological testing on EBUS samples had a low yield for impactful clinical results in our cohort suggesting that such practise has limited utility.

In cases of hard rubbery lymph nodes like in Sarcoidosis and Lymphoma, it is sometimes difficult to obtain optimum cytology samples during EBUS TBNA (Transbronchial needle aspiration cytology) and thus the diagnostic yield of EBUS TBNA samples drops down to 60%. An EBUS TBNB sample from such lymph nodes can help to increase the diagnostic yield.Methods: We did a Pilot study in patients presenting with hard rubbery lymph nodes during EBUS TBNA, EBUS guided Transbronchial biopsy of the subcarinal lymph node was done with small size biopsy forceps. Diagnostic yield of biopsy samples was compared with EBUS TBNA cytology result...

Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) and positron emission tomography (PET) standard uptake values (SUV) are useful methods for evaluating mediastinal lymph node pathology.The aim this study was to compare EBUS TBNA and PET suv results in benign, granulomatous and malignant disease. The files of 151 patients who had FDG-PET scanning and underwent EBUS-TBNA between 2015-2017 were reviewed. The diagnoses were confirmed by needle aspiration cytology, histopathology and clinical follow-up. Malignant diseases included lung cancers, metastasis and lymphomas. Granulomatous diseases were mai...
