Endolimax nana and urticaria
We report a case of chronic urticaria associated withE. nana in a 34-year-old Italian woman. The patient suffered from abdominal pain, diarrhoea and weight loss. The disease appeared after a trip to Vietnam. Laboratory examinations showed mild blood eosinophilia. Three coproparasitological examinations were positive for cysts ofE. nana. The patient was successfully treated with two courses of metronidazole (2 g/day for 10 days each). No antihistamines were used. Three coproparasitological examinations, carried out at the end of the therapy, were negative. Follow up (six months) was negative.E. nana can be responsible for very rare cases of abdominal pain, diarrhoea, polyarthritis and urticaria.
Do you folks have any ideas for my next PIP? I did the back pain one a few years ago and it wasn't too bad. Can I do same one (from AAPMR) again? The other projects don't really pertain to my practice. Any other recommendations?
CONCLUSIONS: The average patient is middle aged (often male) with a history of subacute back pain, sometimes presenting fever and/or neurological damage on diagnosis. Acute phase reactants are frequently raised. Diabetes mellitus, endocarditis and immunosuppressed patients may have the worst chance of a good outcome, therefore these patients should be more carefully managed (always try to obtain an imaging-guided biopsy, correct antibiotic treatment, and a functional and clinical follow-up).

The reason health care systems are taking out massive bank-credit lines is they just suffered through their industry ’s worst financial month ever — and their executives don’t know when the pain will end.
CONCLUSIONS: The findings indicate that the Polish adaptation of the SBQ-R by Osman et al. has good psychometric characteristics and can be considered in both research and clinical practice. PMID: 32447359 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsThe [18F]FDG-PET/CT can identify probable Covid-19 disease in the absence or before symptoms onset and can guide patient management. Nuclear medicine staff needs to be aware of the possibility of contact with patients affected by the SARS-CoV-2 infection even if they do not present any symptom. Therefore, safety measures need to be adopted for other patients and hospital staff in order to block the spread of infection.
We describe the case of a 48-year-old woman suffering from EoE not responsive to the topical steroid administration and diagnosis of SNAS. The patient started nickel oral desensitization according to the literature protocol continuing nickel-free diet. After 1 year from the beginning of the treatment, during the maintenance dose (500 ng three times a week), she decreased gradually the dosage of immunotherapy and reintroduced all the culprit foods. After the immunotherapy interruption, during the free diet, she repeated the oesophagogastroscopy with a complete macroscopic and histological resolution. We showed...
A 49-year-old Ethiopian woman was admitted to our Dermatology Unit in March 2014 with a diagnosis of chronic urticaria. The patient lived in Milan, Italy, but she visited Ethiopia in July 2013. The patient stated that she was in therapy with levothyroxine for hypothyroidism and that urticaria appeared in November 2013. Furthermore, the patient declared occasional abdominal pain and diarrhoea, and weight loss (approximately 6 kg) in the last six months. Laboratory examinations, carried out at other centers, revealed blood eosinophilia [November 2013: 730 eosinophils/mm3 (=10.5%); January 2014: 1.100 eosinophils/mm3 (=15.9%)].
