Granulomatous Hepatitis with Miliary Mottling: A Rare Cause.

Granulomatous Hepatitis with Miliary Mottling: A Rare Cause. J Assoc Physicians India. 2018 Sep;66(9):97-98 Authors: Joshi V, Jain S, Sharma V, Khippal N, Chaturvedi A Abstract Miliary mottling is most commonly seen in tuberculosis. Clinical features of tuberculosis mimic many other lung diseases. Here we report a 40 yr old male with clinical features suggestive of tuberculosis, miliary mottling on skiagram chest and granulomatous hepatitis on histopathology. Case was finally diagnosed as sarcoidosis on liver biopsy and improved on oral corticosteroid. PMID: 31321943 [PubMed - in process]

This study aimed to compare short- and long-term results for patients undergoing either aortic valve-sparing reimplantation (David) procedure (AVr-D) or biological aortic root replacement (Bentall) procedure (ARr-B-bio) for aortic root pathology.MethodsWe compared outcomes for patients who underwent AVr-D (n = 261) or ARr-B-bio (n = 150) between 2000 and 2015 at our institution. The mean age of patients was 55 ± 13 years and 21.7% (n = 89) were female. ARr-B-bio patients were significantly older than AVr-D patients (58 ± 10 vs 53&thins...

ConclusionsBronchodilator dose responsiveness may be useful for phenotyping and may be of utility in practice and future studies focused on asthma outcomes or quantification of treatment responses. In children and adolescents, this phenotype of poor bronchodilator responsiveness may be associated with periods of relatively stable disease yet marked airway constriction in response to triggers, including tobacco smoke, respiratory infections/pneumonia, and aeroallergens.
