Kagami –Ogata syndrome in a fetus presenting with polyhydramnios, malformations, and preterm delivery: a case report

ConclusionKagami –Ogata syndrome should have been suspected because of the presence of polyhydramnios and omphalocele during pregnancy. Respiratory insufficiency soon after birth, because of a small thorax, is expected in this disease and a diagnosis during pregnancy may have enabled appropriate care after birth.

We present a case report of an adult woman with AKL-positive ALCL, diagnosed by endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspirate (EBUS-TBNA).A 59-year-old women with no history of breast implants, was admitted for a four-month low back pain. Initially, the patient was treated for a spondyloarthropathy, but due to persistence of the symptoms, a lumbosacral MRI was performed, showing changes in morphology and signal intensity in the vertebral body of L3, along with edema and a paravertebral collection that affected the left psoas muscle, suggesting granulomatous spondylodiscitis. Chest CT-scan showed mild left ...

AbstractA series of novel benzotriazole derivatives containing iodine atom(s) were synthesized. The binding of these compounds to the catalytic subunit of human protein kinase CK2 was evaluated using differential scanning fluorimetry. The obtained thermodynamic data were compared with those determined previously for the brominated and chlorinated benzotriazole analogues to get a deeper insight into the thermodynamic contribution of iodine substitution to the free energy of ligand binding. We have shown that iodine atom(s) attached to the benzene ring of benzotriazole enhance(s) its binding by the target protein. This effec...

This study demonstrates that next-generation sequencing (NGS) is uniquely well suited for parental testing, in particular due to its ability to detect clinically relevant germline mosaicism. Parental variant testing by NGS was performed in a clinical laboratory for one year. The detection of mosaicism by NGS was compared to its detection by Sanger sequencing. Eight cases of previously unrevealed mosaicism were detected by NGS across eight different genes. Mosaic variants were differentiated from sequencing noise using custom bioinformatics analyses in combination with familial inheritance data and complementary Sanger sequ...

CONCLUSION About one third of the injuries previously classified as grade III will be upgraded to grade IV using the 2018 AAST, which adds to the heterogeneity of grade IV injuries. Although the 2018 AAST grading provides more anatomic details on injury patterns and includes important radiologic findings, it did not outperform the 1989 AAST grading in predicting bleeding interventions. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE Prognostic and Epidemiological Study, level III.

CONCLUSION Appendiceal tumors are possible findings in appendix specimens, and most patients had uncomplicated acute appendicitis. In light of findings we conclude that CT cannot be used to exclude neoplastic etiology underlying acute appendicitis. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE Diagnostic, level IV.

CONCLUSION For patients with TBI resulting in intracranial hemorrhages, administration of VTE chemoprophylaxis is warranted for those patients with stable repeat computed tomography scans. Early chemoprophylaxis, at 24 to 72 hours is associated with reduced VTE incidence without a corresponding increase or exacerbation of intracranial hemorrhage in patients with TBI who have a stable repeat head computed tomography scan. More studies are needed to establish guidelines for the safety and efficacy of VTE prophylaxis protocols in adult patients with TBI. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE Systematic review, level III.

Purpose: To characterize the corneal changes in peripheral hypertrophic subepithelial corneal opacification (PHSCO) considering elevation of the anterior and posterior corneal surface, corneal astigmatism, tear secretion, and endothelial cell density. Methods: Thirty-eight eyes of 22 patients with PHSCO on at least 1 eye and 38 eyes of 22 age- and sex-matched healthy subjects were included in this retrospective cross-sectional study. Using the Pentacam system (Oculus, Wetzlar, Germany), measurement of the anterior and posterior corneal surface was performed. In addition, the Schirmer test was conducted, and endothelia...

Objectives: To evaluate the efficacy of a mydriatic agent for posterior synechiae after phacoemulsification and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation followed by Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (staged DMEK). Methods: In this prospective study, the outcomes of DMEK with or without mydriasis (0.5% tropicamide and 0.5% phenylephrine hydrochloride [Mydrin-P; Santen, Osaka, Japan]) after the DMEK procedure were analyzed. Patients underwent IOL implantation approximately 4 weeks before DMEK. Six months after DMEK, the iris posterior synechiae severity score was evaluated based on the extent of posterior synechiae ...

Conclusion: Better visualization of the extent of neovascularization is obtained using SS-OCT or SD-OCT compared with ICGA, which may be influenced by choroidal permeability and dye leakage. Neovascularization area on OCTA may become an objective parameter in the follow-up of age-related macular degeneration patients, along with traditional imaging techniques.

Conclusion: There was an excellent agreement in CNV area measurements for both swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography devices in automatic and manual segmentations. However, the Topcon equivalent Zeiss segmentation was not comparable with any of the preset segmentations of Topcon and Zeiss devices. There was a poor agreement in CNV VD between different image size and different devices. For these reasons, it seems that, for accurate longitudinal analysis of VD, it is better to use the same device for each individual, even if both devices can be used interchangeably for CNV area measurements using automatic ...
