Neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia of infancy: An unusual cause of unresolving tachypnea in infancy

A 6-month-old full-term male patient was born uneventfully through vaginal delivery. At the age of 3 months, he began experiencing unresolving dry cough and poor feeding. During respiratory auscultation, tachypnea without adventitious breath sounds was noted. Chest radiograph (CxR) based from the latest admission revealed ground-glass opacity (GGO) and hyperinflation in bilateral lung fields (Supplement Fig.). Meanwhile, echocardiogram showed a patent foramen ovale, while esophagogram was negative for tracheoesophageal fistula or gastroesophageal reflux.

ConclusionGiven the increasing number of such surgeries performed the recognition of acute and chronic complications, and their optimal management is of great importance. Although performing a Roux-en-Y fistulojejunostomy was recommended in the literature, conservative and endoscopic treatment should be considered before.

Abstract This paper presents the first comprehensive report on traditional uses of medicinal shrubs of Rawalakot city, district Poonch, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan. Ethobotanical data obtained from 120 informants were analyzed by relative frequency citation, use value, family use value, informant consensus factor, fidelity level and Jaccard index. In total, 41 shrubs belonging to 24 families and 34 genera were documented. Rosaceae was reported the most dominant family in the area (six species) and Berberidaceae showed maximum family use value (0.68). Leaves (35%) and fruits (33%) were the most commonly used plant part...

Primary leiomyosarcoma of the bronchus is an extremely rare malignant neoplasm. A 29-year-old man presented with persisting cough and sputum over 1 month. Unenhanced and contrast-enhanced chest CT showed a nodular lesion in the main bronchus of the left lower lobe and multiple enlarged lymph nodes in the mediastinum. Preoperative staging 18F-FDG PET/CT scan displayed a hypermetabolic lesion of the known nodule and mild FDG uptake of mediastinal lymph nodes. The histological examination confirmed bronchial leiomyosarcoma and reactive hyperplasia in lymph nodes.

Authors: Guo L, Chen B, Zhang L, Deng Y, Li H, Shi QD Abstract A 49-year-old female patient developed chest tightness and shortness of breath without apparent cause and presented to a local hospital. Chest radiography indicated increased thickening of the lung texture, increased multiple patchy densities in the lower lobes of the bilateral lungs and a slightly enlarged thyroid. The patient was treated for pulmonary infection with antibiotics but the symptoms persisted. A repeated CT scan revealed ground-glass attenuation of the bilateral lungs with multiple flaky exudates and visible bronchogenic signs. The symptom...

CONCLUSION: Peripherally inserted central catheter moves toward the heart when the arm position changes from abduction to adduction. Peripherally inserted central catheter tip placement at the peak P wave with patient's arm in adduction is accurate and can prevent the catheter from advancing too low. R wave can function as a reference for observing P wave changes during peripherally inserted central catheter placement. PMID: 31808719 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Choi HS, Park YB, Yoon HK, Lim SY, Kim TH, Park JH, Lee WY, Park SJ, Lee SW, Kim WJ, Kim KU, Shin KC, Kim DJ, Kim TE, Yoo KH, Shim JJ, Hwang YI Abstract BACKGROUND: Pulmonary functions are interpreted using predicted values from reference equations that vary with ethnicity, gender, age, height, and weight. The universally used Choi's reference equations are not validated for Korean populations, and the purpose of this study was to validate them and develop new reference equations. METHODS: Subjects with normal spirometry and chest radiographs, no co-morbidities, and non-smokers, from the Korean Nationa...

Primary hepatic angiosarcoma was diagnosed in a 59-year-old woman who presented an arthralgia of limbs and dry cough for 6 weeks. Physical examination revealed digital clubbing. A 99mTc-MDP bone scintigraphy showed diffusely increased uptake along the cortical margins of long bones, suggesting hypertrophic osteoarthropathy.
