Renal abscess involving mucormycosis by immunohistochemical detection in a patient with acute lymphocytic leukemia: a case report and literature review.

Renal abscess involving mucormycosis by immunohistochemical detection in a patient with acute lymphocytic leukemia: a case report and literature review. Jpn J Infect Dis. 2013;66(4):345-7 Authors: Sunagawa K, Ishige T, Kusumi Y, Asano M, Nisihikawa E, Kato M, Yagasaki H, Nemoto N Abstract A 14-year-old girl with acute lymphocytic leukemia complained of right flank pain and fever. As her fever was prolonged, she underwent renal biopsy and was diagnosed with mucormycosis. We performed right nephrectomy, and subsequent pathological examination of her tissue specimen also detected mucormycosis. Here, we report a rare case of renal mucormycotic abscess.

Authors: Wrona E, Jakubowska J, Pawlik B, Pastorczak A, Madzio J, Lejman M, Sędek Ł, Kowalczyk J, Szczepański T, Młynarski W Abstract Resistance to L-asparaginase (L-asp) is a major contributor to poor treatment outcomes of several subtypes of childhood B cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (BCP-ALL). Asparagine synthetase (ASNS), legumain (LGMN) and cathepsin B (CTSB) serve a key role in L-asp resistance. The association between genetic subtypes of BCP-ALL and the expression of ASNS, LGMN and CTSB may elucidate the mechanisms of treatment failure. Bone marrow samples of 52 children newly diagnosed with...

In conclusion, favorable-risk cytogenetics may improve the clinical outcomes of patients with FLT3-ITD-mutated AML, but adverse-risk cytogenetics may not further worsen the prognosis. Sorafenib combined with chemotherapy may increase the ORR but would not result in a longer OS and RFS. PMID: 31807186 [PubMed]

Authors: Gao M, Pang H, Kim YM, Lu X, Wang X, Lee J, Wang M, Meng F, Li S Abstract Translocation (9;11)(p21.3;q23.3) is one of the most common lysine methyltransferase 2A (KMT2A)-rearrangements in de novo and therapy-related acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Numerous in vitro and in vivo studies have demonstrated that the KMT2A/MLLT3 super elongation complex subunit (MLLT3) fusion gene on the derivative chromosome 11 serves a crucial role in leukemogenesis. Trisomy 9 as a secondary chromosome change in patients with t(9;11) is relatively rare. The present study reported a unique case of AML with a chromosome 9 trisomy ...

Authors: Broadhead DY, Douglas HE, Bezjian Wallace LM, Wallace PJ, Tamura S, Morgan KC, Hemler DE Abstract Back pain and its associated complications are of increasing importance among military members. The sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is a common source of chronic low back pain (LBP) and functional disability. Many patients suffering from chronic LBP utilize opioids to help control their symptoms. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been used extensively to treat pain emanating from many different musculoskeletal origins; however, its use in the SIJ has been studied only on a limited basis. The patient in this case report pr...

I am thinking about possibly doing a Psychiatry fellowship in the future and I heard some guy on Reddit mentioning "Interventional Pain Psychiatry", but I haven't been able to find any information about this fellowship online. All I found was something called "Interventional Psychiatry" where they do ECT and Ketamine infusions. What's the difference and how can I find out more information about these two? Does anyone know about these subspecialties?

Authors: Silveira C, Guedes R, Maia D, Curral R, Coelho R Abstract Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disabling neuroinflammatory disease. Psychiatric manifestations have a high prevalence in MS patients and may worsen the illness progression and the patients' quality of life (QoL). Depression is a highly prevalent condition in MS patients, associated with poorer adherence to treatment, decreased functional status and QoL, and increased suicide risk. Diagnosis and treatment of this disorder is challenging because of symptom overlap. Other prevalent psychiatric comorbidities are anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder...

Pain and deformity are the main symptoms and usually progressive in untreated patients. Current therapeutic options are surgery (frequently partial resections with an uncomfortable postoperative period), sclerotherapy (often limited because of the need for high doses and the potent...
