Authors: Fahmawi Y, Campos Y, Khushman M, Alkharabsheh O, Manne A, Zubair H, Haleema S, Polski J, Bessette S Abstract Pseudo-thrombotic microangiopathy (pseudo-TMA) is a recognized, yet uncommon, clinical presentation of vitamin B12 deficiency. Patients with pseudo-TMA present with microangiopathic hemolytic anemia (MAHA), thrombocytopenia and schistocytes. They are often misdiagnosed as thrombotic thrombocytopenia purpura (TTP) and receive unnecessary therapy. Here, we report a case of a 60-year-old male who presented with thrombocytopenia and normocytic normochromic anemia. Anemia work-up was remarkable for severe B12 deficiency (

Abstract The aim of this study was to determine a match between DNA recovered from evidence material, such as knocked down red deer, and from comparative material in form of two brown traces on the bonnet of a car driven by a person suspected of knocking down the animal. The spots coming from the car provided no DNA profile, which questioned that they originated from a red deer and ruled out performance of a comparative DNA analysis. For this reason, the material obtained from the blood smear was analyzed for species identification. The method applied can discriminate between cattle, red deer and roe deer based on...

We describe three clinical scenarios in which CAR T- cell immunotherapy interfered with HIV-1 testing including: (1) routine infectious disease screening prior to stem cell transplantation in a 16-year-old female with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, status post CAR T- cell treatment (2) routine infectious disease screening prior to 2nd CAR T- cell collection in a 65-year-old male with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma who failed initial CAR T- cell treatment and (3) routine infectious risk assessment following an occupational health exposure from a 58 -year-old male with multiple myeloma, status post CAR T- cell treatment...
