Conclusions: Pseudomeningoceles following ONSF may be asymptomatic or may cause symptomatic orbital mass effect and rarely visual loss, amendable to surgical excision. Post-ONSF pseudomeningoceles are identified on computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging to occur at the locations of fenestration sites and contain cerebrospinal fluid communicating with the subdural space that may act as a “filtration” bleb in some cases. Imaging findings may represent a spectrum spanning intraorbital cerebrospinal fluid leakage, partial walling off of bleb, or fully developed cysts. Resection of optic nerve pseudomen...

AbstractPurposeTo investigate inpatient prevalence, expenditures, and comorbidities of hospitalized patients with sarcoidosis in the USA.MethodsPatients with sarcoidosis were identified within the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) database for the years 2013 and 2014 using the respective ICD-9 diagnostic code. Data on patient and hospital characteristics, comorbidities, total hospital costs, and total hospitalization charges were collected. A propensity-matched cohort of patients without sarcoidosis from the same database was created and used as comparators for the analysis of comorbidities.ResultsA cohort of 78,055 patien...

A 60-year-old multi-morbid male patient with polycystic kidney disease and secondary chronic renal insufficiency stage G5 A3 according to Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) classification was referred to our hospital with radiological differential diagnoses of sarcoidosis, ectasia of the pulmonary arteries, lymphoma, or central bronchial carcinoma with contralateral hilar lymph node metastases. He had concomitant arterial hypertension, manifest osteoporosis due to renal osteopathy, secondary compensated renal hyperparathyroidism, compensated metabolic renal acidosis, and diabetes mellitus type 2.

The aim of this study was to determine the characteristics, treatment, and outcome according to each etiology of pachymeningitis. We conducted a retrospective multicenter French nationwide study between 2000 and 2016 to describe the characteristics, outcome, and treatment of pachymeningitis. We included 60 patients (median age 55.5 years; interquartile range [IQR] 30–80, female/male ratio 0.43). Neurologic signs were present in 59 patients (98%) and consisted of headache in 43 (72%), cranial nerve palsy in 33 (55%), confusion in 10 (17%), seizures in 7 (12%), and focal neurologic signs in 9 (15%). Fever and weight ...

Conclusion TIPS is effective in NCPHT but can be technically difficult, especially in the case of cavernoma. Good liver function does not prevent the occurrence of long-term encephalopathy.

Purpose of review Antimalarial drugs including chloroquine, its less toxic quinolone-derivative hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), and quinacrine have become cornerstones in the treatment of autoimmune diseases including systemic lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcoidosis, and Sjogren syndrome; cutaneous disorders, antiphospholipid syndrome, and have recently been employed at higher dioses in oncology. Benefits include anti-inflammatory effects, protection against thrombosis, and improved control of hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia. In general, both the therapeutic advantages and the toxic effects of the drugs correlate with the do...

The patient was a 75 years old male who had been followed as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy by echocardiogram findings without inspection. In his echocardiogram findings, left ventricular contraction had been gradually impaired with left ventricular septal wall thinning. His inspection was done to examine the causes of these changes. According to his examinations, he was diagnosed as cardiac sarcoidosis. He had been administered predonisolone 30  mg/day for one month. After this course, his echocardiogram showed left ventricular thrombus,24*17 mm.

We present a case of clinically suspected Behcet's syndrome based on a 10-year history of recurrent multiple oral ulcers and human leukocyte antigen-B51 positivity who presented with only an EPE. Computed tomography pulmonary angiogram ruled out central thoracic vein thrombosis but was inconclusive in ruling out a subsegmental pulmonary embolism. The patient declined immunosuppressants and while on follow-up developed bilateral extensive acute lower limb deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. Upper infrarenal inferior vena cava demonstrated chronic thrombosis suggestive of its antecedent role in pulmonary embol...
