A case of glyburide-induced leukocytoclastic vasculitis.

Conclusions: This case highlights a rarely reported cutaneous adverse reaction to the commonly used diabetic medication, glyburide. Physicians should consider cutaneous vasculitis as a potential side effect of glyburide.

CONCLUSIONS: Diabetes coverage does not fully align with incidence of diabetes among Australians, and problematic language practices such as the labelling of people as 'diabetics' continue to occur. SO WHAT?: Given the agenda-setting function of the news media, new strategies may be needed to change how Australian metropolitan and national newspapers cover diabetes, especially in relation to incorporating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices and perspectives.

Total external ophthalmoplegia: First clinical manifestation of Sjögren's syndrome. Strabismus. 2019 Sep 06;:1-5 Authors: Singh A, Mahesh M, Agrawal A, Kumar N, Verma R, Mittal SK, Kumar B Abstract Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is an autoimmune disease causing destruction of the exocrine glands secondary to lymphocytic infiltration. Common clinical symptoms of SS are xerostomia, xerophthalmia, myalgia, arthritis, and vasculitis. Neurological symptoms may precede the diagnosis of SS by up to 2 years in about 80% of patients. A 28-year-old female presented to us with complaints of horizontal and vert...

Publication date: Available online 13 September 2018Source: Annals of Medicine and SurgeryAuthor(s): Sonali Gupta, Pradeep Goyal, Pranav Sharma, Priti Soin, Puneet S. KocharAbstractDiabetic myonecrosis (DMN) is an under-diagnosed complication of long-standing poorly controlled diabetes mellitus. It presents as abrupt pain and swelling of the extremity, mostly lower limbs. Diagnosis is often delayed as it mimics a number of clinical entities such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), cellulitis, necrotizing fasciitis and malignancy. Failure to properly identify this condition can result in increased morbidity through exposure to u...

CONCLUSION: Atherothrombotic rates were elevated in patients identified as having primary systemic vasculitis. While incident rates of cardiovascular comorbidities were also increased, the substantial elevation in AMIs seen in young adults suggests a disease-specific component which requires further investigation.

Abstract Radiographic findings of thick walled cavities in the lungs are typically seen in mycobacterial infections, malignant lesions, fungal infections, pulmonary vasculitis or other inflammatory lesions of the lungs. Necrotizing infections of the lungs caused by gram negative bacteria (Klebsiella, Psudomonas, Legionella) and Staphylococcus aureus may also form cavities of varying thickness, with consolidation. Escherichia coli pneumonia causing pulmonary cavities is very rare and the few cases reported are of pneumatocele formation. Here we present an unusual case of Escherichia coli infection as a rare cause o...

A 34-year-old Hispanic man with a history of alcoholic cirrhosis and type 2 diabetes mellitus presented with two weeks of diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, rash, and syncope. Five days prior to presentation he developed an erythematous petechial rash on his right hand that spread sequentially to his left hand, forearms, feet, legs and flanks. The rash was neither pruritic nor painful, and he denied prior history of a rash. He reported no recent infections or antibiotic use. His past medical history was negative for connective tissue disease and was otherwise noncontributory.
