Multiple myeloma with multiple neurological presentations.

We describe a 40-year-old woman who presented with lower cranial neuropathies mimicking variant Guillain-Barré syndrome, with normal brain and spinal cord imaging and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) albuminocytological dissociation, and subsequently diagnosed with IgD myeloma. She relapsed repeatedly with differing neurological presentations: numb chin syndrome and twice with impaired vision, first from cerebral venous sinus thrombosis and later from leptomeningeal infiltration of the optic chiasm. We discuss the neurological complications of myeloma, emphasising the need to consider it in a wide variety of neurological presentations and repeatedly to reassess its associated neurological diagnoses. We also highlight the complexity of myeloma treatment. PMID: 31273077 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: The uniform flush produced less damage to the vascular endothelium and surrounding tissues and was superior to the pulsed flush. However, the uniform flush is prone to thrombosis. PMID: 31618404 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Matsushige T, Shimonaga K, Mizoue T, Hosogai M, Hashimoto Y, Takahashi H, Kaneko M, Ono C, Ishii D, Sakamoto S, Kurisu K Abstract Recent basic studies have clarified that aneurysmal wall inflammation plays an important role in the pathophysiology of intracranial aneurysms. However, it remains an interdisciplinary challenge to visualize aneurysm wall status in vivo. MR-vessel wall imaging (VWI) is a current topic of advanced imaging techniques since it could provide an additional value for unruptured intracranial aneurysms (UIAs) risk stratification. With regard to ruptured intracranial aneurysms, VWI could...

AbstractObjectiveTo study lipiodol deposition in portal vein tumour thrombus (PVTT) in predicting the treatment outcome of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients after transarterial chemoembolisation (TACE).MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed data from 379 HCC patients with PVTT who underwent TACE as the initial treatment at Sun Yat-Sen University Cancer Center from January 2008 to December 2015. Patients were grouped by positive and negative lipiodol deposition based on the extent of lipiodol deposition in PVTT. The overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) were compared between negative and positive lipio...

Microparticles are elevated in disorders associated with thrombosis (e.g., cardiovascular diseases). We investigated the association between microparticle levels in untreated and treated HIV-infected subjects, and determined the association with immune status, viral replication, and duration of antiretroviral therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We included 144 HIV-infected subjects, i...
