Two Cases of Equine Multinodular Pulmonary Fibrosis in Japan

Publication date: July 2019Source: Journal of Comparative Pathology, Volume 170Author(s): A. Ochi, M. Sekiguchi, K. Tsujimura, T. Kinoshita, T. Ueno, Y. KatayamaSummaryEquine multinodular pulmonary fibrosis (EMPF) is a recently described form of interstitial pneumonia associated with equine herpesvirus type 5 (EHV-5). This disease has been reported in North and South America, Europe and Oceania but not, to our knowledge, in horses in Japan. We diagnosed EMPF in two Thoroughbred horses in Japan on the basis of gross and histopathological findings. In both cases, significant gross lesions, restricted to the lungs, consisted of numerous firm and coalescing nodules widely distributed throughout the lung. The nodules were

CONCLUSION: The proper treatment of pleural effusion can be determined only after meticulous differential diagnosis. The range of therapeutic options has recently become much wider. More data can be expected in the near future concerning diagnostic test- ing for the etiology of the effusion, better pleurodetic agents, the development of interventional techniques, and the genetic background of the affected patients.

AbstractThere is a general lack of published studies on the risk of mortality due to alterations in the safety of swallowing detected during the fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES). We aimed at assessing the risk of mortality of the detection of aspiration, penetration, and pharyngeal residues by FEES. A cohort of consecutively evaluated patients suspected of experiencing oropharyngeal dysphagia undergoing FEES at a tertiary care university hospital were prospectively followed up on to assess mortality. The FEES findings, comorbidities, and potential confounders were studied as predictors of death using a...

DiscussionThe investigation of the epidemiological profiles, prognostic factors, and outcomes associated with VAP is critical for the identification of high-risk groups of mechanically ventilated patients and evaluation of possible clinical endpoints. This may provide substantial links for improved VAP prevention practices targeting modifiable risk factors. Implications for future research directions are discussed.Systematic review registrationPROSPERO CRD42017048158

This patient showed imaging findings of diffuse bronchiolitis, ground-glass opacities, and consolidations. Antibiotics were not effective, and we performed bronchoalveolar lavage, in which only human rhinovirus infection was detected by multiplex PCR testing.

Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital used a 7 Tesla MRI Scanner to capture the most precise and detailed 3-D photo of the brain ever taken, according to  recently published reports. The brain used belonged to a 58-year old woman who died of pneumonia and had no known neurological condition. Her brain was stored for nearly three years before researchers decided to scan it for 100 hours, producing unprecedented images that could zero-in on material that was .1 millimeters wide. The brain was held in a custom-made spheroid case made of urethane, which permitted interfering air bubbles to escape. The ca...

This study sought to identify complications in rTKA that were independently associated with NIDDM/IDDM compared to non-diabetic (Non-DM) patients and whether IDDM was associated with specific postoperative complications compared to NIDDM.Methods and materials16,428 rTKA patients were identified from the ACS-NSQIP database from 2005 to 2016 and stratified into three separate cohorts. 12,922 (78.66%) were Non-DM, 2335 (14.21%) had NIDDM, and 1171 (7.13%) had IDDM. Univariate analyses were utilized to assess for differences in demographics, preoperative comorbidities, and postoperative complication rates. Multivariate logisti...

ConclusionsIncreased mortality in patients with rib fractures starts at 65  years of age without a further increase until age ≥ 80. NRF does not predict increased mortality independent of age. Severe TBI is the most common cause of death in patients 16–75 years, as opposed to respiratory complications in patients 80 years-old or greater.
