In this study, we present three cases of testicular infarction and discuss their clinical characteristics, imaging features and clinical management. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Three adult males with prolonged epididymitis presented with chronic unilateral testicular pain, tenderness, and palpable swelling, including left varicocele in one case and hydrocele in the other two cases. Patient's symptoms were not relieved after antibiotic therapy. We analyzed the diagnosis, management, and outcome of these three cases of testicular infarction resulting from prolonged epididymitis. This includes the clinical characteristics, feat...

Protective immunity to Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb)—the causative agent of tuberculosis (TB)—is not fully understood but involves immune responses within the pulmonary airways which can lead to exacerbated inflammation and immune pathology. In humans, this inflammation results in lung damage; the extent of which depends on specific host pro-inflammatory processes. Neutrophils, though increasingly linked to the development of inflammatory disorders, have been less well studied in relation to TB-induced lung pathology. Neutrophils mode of action and their specialized functions can be directly linked to TB-spe...

Conclusion  With new evidence emerging every day and with COVID-19 guidance and protocols adapting responsively, the national responses vary widely across the globe. However, Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea have shown that aggressive and proactive testing plays a crucial role in containing the spread of the disease.  We believe AI has great potential for helping doctors quantify and monitor COVID progression from a patient’s chest X-rays – this will help determine treatment pathways faster and thus slow any surges in emergency cases. AI will also play a critical role in expanding screening for...

David Eugenio Hinojosa-González, Daniel Dávila-González, Gustavo Salgado-Garza, Eduardo Flores-VillalbaLung India 2020 37(3):252-256 Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP) is characterized by accumulation of surfactant-like lipoprotein material within distal bronchioles and alveoli due to impaired clearance. Clinically, PAP presents with dyspnea and cough. A 58-year-old Hispanic man presented with 6 months of productive cough, weight loss, and progressively worsening dyspnea. He reported a long history of poorly controlled type 2 diabetes that led to diabetic nephropathy. The patient had a strong passive smok...
