Hydatid Pulmonary Embolism

A 49-year-old woman presented to the Emergency Department with nonmassive hemoptysis. She also complained of a 2-day history of generalized weakness, shortness of breath, pleuritic chest pain, and productive cough. She reported a previous history of liver hydatid disease that was being treated with albendazole. Upon admission, vital signs were as follows: blood pressure 135/85  mm Hg, respiratory rate 24 breaths/min, pulse rate 118 beats/min, and SpO2 89% in room air. Bloody stained sputum and a low-grade fever were also noted.

Abstract Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia (PJP) occurs in immunocompromised hosts and is classified as PJP with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection (HIV-PJP) and PJP without HIV infection (non-HIV PJP). Non-HIV PJP rapidly progresses to respiratory failure compared with HIV-PJP possibly due to the difference in immune conditions; namely, the prognosis of non-HIV PJP is worse than that of HIV PJP. However, the diagnosis of non-HIV PJP at the early stage is difficult. Herein, we report a case of severe non-HIV PJP successfully managed with veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (V-V ECMO). A 54-yea...

The hypothalamus–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis acts to release cortisol into the blood stream, as cortisol calls the body into action to combat stress. When high amounts of cortisol interact with the hypothalamus, the HPA axis will slow down its activity. The amygdala detects stress, while the prefrontal cortex regulates our reactions to stress.
