Jared Dunnmon Luke Oakden-Rayner By LUKE OAKDEN-RAYNER MD, JARED DUNNMON, PhD Medical AI testing is unsafe, and that isn’t likely to change anytime soon. No regulator is seriously considering implementing “pharmaceutical style” clinical trials for AI prior to marketing approval, and evidence strongly suggests that pre-clinical testing of medical AI systems is not enough to ensure that they are safe to use. As discussed in a previous post, factors ranging from the laboratory effect to automation bias can contribute to substantial disconnects between pre-clinical performance of AI sys...

ConclusionWe found that a heterozygous mutation in exon 11 ofFLCN c. 1273C>T (p.Gln425Ter), which was identified for the first time in our study, might cause isolated familial spontaneous pneumothorax.

We report 13 cases (11 males/2 females) of SPM. The average age was 31 ± 0.85 years. The most common precipitating factor was asthma attack. The onset symptoms were mainly chest pain (11 cases). Synchronous pneumothorax was found in 5 cases and it was bilateral in 2 patients. The evolution was marked by the spontaneous resorption. SMP is an underrecognized cause of chest pain in young adults. Chest radiography is usually sufficient for the diagnosis, and further diagnostic procedures are generally not necessary. The prognosis is often favorable.
Birt-Hogg-Dub é syndrome (BHDS) is an autosomal dominant disease featured by lung cysts, spontaneous pneumothorax, fibrofolliculomas and renal tumors. The causative gene for BHDS is the folliculin (FLCN) gene and ...
