Respiratory Complications in Patients with Hyper IgM Syndrome

ConclusionsRespiratory complications are common in patients with HIgM syndrome. A proper awareness of respiratory manifestations in patients with HIgM may result in improved management, reduced morbidity and mortality, and an improvement in the quality of life of the patients.

AbstractPurposeAcute appendicitis may present as uncomplicated and complicated and these disease forms differ both epidemiologically and clinically. Complicated acute appendicitis has traditionally been defined as an appendicitis complicated by perforation or a periappendicular abscess, and an appendicolith represents a predisposing factor of complicated disease. There are histopathological differences between uncomplicated acute appendicitis and the previously established traditional forms of complicated acute appendicitis, but to our knowledge, the histopathological differences between uncomplicated acute appendicitis an...

AbstractPurposeMost elderly patients with colorectal cancer have comorbidities and reduced functional reserve, which may increase their risks of postoperative morbidity and mortality, and subsequently influence the treatment choice. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the treatment choice and compare laparoscopic and open surgery in this setting.MethodsThis retrospective study evaluated 118 patients with colorectal cancer ( ≥ 85 years old between January 2007 and February 2018) to determine the influence of comorbidities on treatment choice, as well as the safety and feasibility of laparoscopic s...

Authors: Wang Y, Cao Y Abstract The leukocyte nucleus quick segmentation is one of the key techniques in leukocyte real-time online scanning of human blood smear. We propose a quick leukocyte nucleus segmentation method based on the component difference in RGB color space. By analyzing the captured microscopic images of the peripheral blood smears from the autoscanning microscope, it is found that the difference values between B component and G component (B - G values) in the regions of the leukocyte nuclei and the platelets are much bigger than those in the other regions, even in the regions including the stains. ...

The structure of KNN thin films was examined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) technique and Raman spectroscopy while their surface morphology was analyzed by Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM). For interrogation of electrical properties, a metal-ferroelectric KNN- metal (MF...

We reported a simple method to fabricate SERS active substrate composed of Ag NPs where ZnO Nrds was chosen as the probe molecule. Ag NPs and ZnO Nrds were synthesized separately by polyol and hydrothermal method, respectively. Subsequently, we have deposited a roughened surface made of Ag NPs on glass by spin coating. Morphology, phase composition and optical properties of Ag NPs and ZnO Nrds are characterized by Transition Electron Microscopy (TEM), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), X-Ray Diffraction XRD, Raman and Uv–vis Spectroscopy. An amplification of the SERS intensity by an order more than 4.5 times was obs...

The highest amount of rutin was observed in the bran out of the native milling fractions (hull, bran, and flour). The hydrothermal treatments however increased the level of rutin in the flour, even showing...

Authors: Tran K, Wu J Abstract A 2-year-old male pediatric patient experienced a partial occlusion of the internal carotid and subsequent asphyxiation resulting in hypoxic brain injury that was later misdiagnosed as primary attention deficient hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Imaging analyses using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) quantitative volumetrics (QV) were used nine years following the incident to identify whether his development of ADHD is of a primary heritability or secondary hypoxic brain injury sequelae. The patient's DTI analysis g...

AbstractActivated phosphoinositide 3-kinase delta syndrome (APDS) is a novel primary immunodeficiency (PID) caused by heterozygous gain of function mutations in PI3K δ catalytic p110δ (PIK3CD) or regulatory p85 α (PIK3R1) subunits leading to APDS1 and APDS2, respectively. Patients with APDS present a spectrum of clinical manifestations, particularly recurrent respiratory infections and lymphoproliferation. We searched PubMed, Web of Science, and Scopus databases for APDS patients and screened for eligibility criteria. A total of 243 APDS patients were identified from 55 articles. For all patients, demogra...

Discussion This case demonstrates successful cure of pre-B-ALL complicating XLA by alloSCT with restoration of B-cell development and functional antibody response. We are aware of only one previous case of pre-B-ALL in an XLA patient (21), which suggests that human BTK deficiency in itself does not predispose to pre-B-ALL. However, there are data to suggest that BTK may act as a tumor suppressor, and BTK deficiency may predispose to tumor development following a “second hit.” Mice with a genetic deficiency in Slp65, a gene encoding an adaptor protein that functions together with BTK, have a block in progenito...

Abstract Primary immunodeficiency disorders (PIDs) are caused by 1 or more defects of the immune system. Patients are more likely to experience recurrent and/or severe infections and tend to develop a wide range of complications. Respiratory diseases are the main and initial manifestation in most cases and the most common complication. Pulmonary complications cause significant morbidity and mortality in patients with PIDs. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment can prevent or at least slow the development of respiratory complications. Since the spectrum of pulmonary complications in PIDs is broad, we divided pu...
