Authors: Goyal P, Shah J, Gupta S, Gupta P, Sharma V Abstract Introduction: Intestinal tuberculosis (ITB) and Crohn's disease (CD) have similar clinical presentation, but require different treatment approaches. Despite advances in various endoscopic, imaging, microbiological and histological techniques, the differentiation of these two entities is often difficult. Newer radiological and image acquisition modalities have now become indispensable tools for evaluation of these two diseases. Areas covered: This review summarizes the currently available literature on various radiological investigations to differentiate ...

Abstract Since 2011, invasive infections due to Mycobacterium chimaera have been diagnosed in patients with previous cardiac surgery. The use of heating/cooling devices (heater-cooler units), necessary to regulate the blood temperature in extra-corporeal circulation, has been identified as a source of contaminated aerosol. Adhering to a strict maintenance program according to the manufacturer's instructions for use including sanitizing is essential to reduce the risk. Current manufacturer guidelines and national recommendations for detection and decontamination of Mycobacterium chimaera and other non-tuberculosis ...

Publication date: Available online 17 May 2019Source: The Lancet NeurologyAuthor(s): Joseph Donovan, Anthony Figaji, Darma Imran, Nguyen Hoan Phu, Ursula Rohlwink, Guy E ThwaitesSummaryTuberculous meningitis is the most severe form of tuberculosis and often causes critical illness with high mortality. Two primary management objectives are reducing intracranial pressure, and optimising cerebral perfusion, while killing the bacteria and controlling intracerebral inflammation. However, the evidence base guiding the care of critically ill patients with tuberculous meningitis is poor and many patients do not have access to neur...

The most commonly used animal model of these diseases is experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). We previously reported that evoked pain, such as mechanical allodynia, was improved by an anti-IL-6 receptor antibod...

We report the case of a 70-year-old female patient who presented with flank pain, pyuria, fever, and a unilateral nonfunctioning kidney with nephrolithiasis and pyonephrosis on pyelography. Routine imaging failed to identify a mass lesion. In an Indian setting, the clinical differential of tuberculosis was considered likely. A nephrectomy was performed in view of the poor perfusion and functional status of the right kidney. Histopathological examination of the kidney showed a tumor of urothelial origin arising at the renal pelvis displaying extensive squamous metaplasia. Such a near total metaplastic change is rare and has...

AbstractMeningiomas are the most common dural tumour. They are regularly being seen as an incidental finding on brain imaging and treated conservatively. However, there are many other dural masses which mimic their appearances, including primary neoplastic processes, metastases, granulomatous diseases and infection. While some of these are rare, others such as metastases and tuberculosis arise relatively frequently in practice. Although not pathognomonic, key features which increase the probability of a lesion being a meningioma include intralesional calcifications, skull hyperostosis, local dural enhancement and increased...

Conclusion For the patient in this case, the decision to forego the convenience of a machine in favor of the skills of a knowledgeable paramedic was lifesaving. Much like the comparison often drawn between the old-fashioned barbell and more sophisticated exercise machines, newer, more complex, and more expensive might make a process more comfortable, but doesn’t always equate to superior results. As we surrender more and more of our hands-on skills to the ease of automated technology, we risk more than the loss of the aptitudes that form the foundation of sound patient assessment—we place our patients in jeopar...

515Introduction: Although surgical resection is the optimal therapeutic option for early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), impaired pulmonary function may interfere and contraindicate therapeutic option. Therefore, predicting postoperative pulmonary function plays an important role. Perfusion SPECT/CT is now established method that can accurately assess lobar or segmental lung function, which makes exact measurement of predicted postoperative percentage forced expiratory volume in 1s (ppoFEV1%) possible. We compared SPECT/CT derived ppoFEV1% with actual pulmonary function in 6 months after surgical resection. Metho...
