Abstract CASE PRESENTATION: A 59-year-old man presented to the ED with a chief complaint of shortness of breath. His past medical history was significant for end-stage renal disease secondary to lithium toxicity, immunosuppression subsequent to cadaveric renal transplantation, bipolar disorder, and hypertension. His shortness of breath had begun 6 months previously and was initially intermittent; it then progressed to constant shortness of breath over the few weeks before presentation. He had no fever, hemoptysis, or chest pain. The patient was admitted to hospital for further evaluation. PMID: 31916972 ...

A 49-year-old man presented to the hospital with worsening pain, swelling, and discoloration of the left side of his face. He presented to the emergency department about a week before the current presentation with a small erythematous nodule on left cheek for which he was prescribed cephalexin and discharged home. He noticed rapid worsening of symptoms, prompting his return to the hospital. His medical history was significant for longstanding hypertension leading to end-stage renal disease, for which he received a deceased donor renal transplant about 6 months prior to his current illness.

We present our single centre experience in transplanted patients and future candidates for transplantation. Methods: Retrospective analysis from an anonymised database of bilateral nephrectomies for ADPKD patients. Results were reported as median, range, and percentage. Differences between groups were tested using ANOVA and t-test. Surgery was performed between January 2012 and July 2018. Results: Thirty-three patients underwent bilateral native nephrectomy for APKD. 18 had a functioning kidney transplant (transplant group, 55%) while 15 patients were on dialysis (dialysis group, 45%) at the time of surgery; 8 pa...

We reported 1 patient with donor-derived CRKP infection following liver transplantation and 2 patients following renal transplantation (1 liver and 2 kidneys were from the same donor), who experienced sudden abdominal pain and abdominal hemorrhage almost at the same time after organ transplantation. Diagnosis: The patients were diagnosed as graft arteries rupture due to corrosion caused by CRKP infection based on computed tomography scan, blood culture, laparotomy, and pulse-field gel electrophoresis. Interventions: Anti-shock treatment, exploratory laparotomy, broad-spectrum antibiotics, and abdominal puncture and d...

Abstract Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI) are commonly prescribed drugs for blood pressure (BP) control and renal protection. The use of ACEI is not associated with an increased risk of acute pancreatitis and ACEI-induced angioedema is rare. A 36-year-old woman presented with vomiting, headache, and aphasia. Her BP was 220/100 mm Hg. urine analysis revealed proteinuria (2+), hematuria (3+). Serum creatinine level was at 1125 μmol/L. She had anemia with 6.1 g/dL of hemoglobin and thrombocytopenia (61,000/mm3). Renal histology revealed lesions of thrombotic microangiopathy. The diagnosis of atypica...

Robert Chelsea turned down the first face he was offered. It was a fine face, one that could have taken him off the transplant waiting list after just a couple months. But Chelsea—severely disfigured after a catastrophic car accident five years earlier—was in no hurry. He’d gotten used to tilting his head back so food and water wouldn’t fall out of his nearly lipless mouth. He knew how to respond compassionately to children who stared in shock and fear.
