Relapsing polychondritis coupling with cerebral amyloid deposit inducing cerebral amyloid angiopathy-related inflammation
AbstractCerebral amyloid angiopathy-related inflammation is a syndrome of reversible encephalopathy with cerebral amyloid angiopathy, however the pathology is not well understood. We clear a part of the pathology through the first case of an 80-year-old man with cerebral amyloid angiopathy-related inflammation induced by relapsing polychondritis (RP) analysis. An 80-year-old man was diagnosed with RP by auricular cartilage biopsy. Almost no abnormality including intracranial microbleeding was detected by cranial magnetic resonance image (MRI) at diagnosis. However, he developed a headache and hallucination after five months. Seven-month cranial MRI showed novel, multiple, intracranial microbleeding, especially in the bilateral but asymmetry posterior, temporal, and parietal lobes.123I-N-isopropyl-p-iodoamphetamine single-photon emission computed tomography showed increased cerebral blood flow in the bilateral posterior lobes. After treatment, both of his neurological symptoms and increased cerebral blood flow improved to mild. Photon emission computed tomography using Pittsburgh compound B (PiB) for evaluation of brain amyloidosis at 12 months after onset showed an amyloid deposit in the bilateral frontal lobes, but a lack of uptake corresponded to the RP lesions. Our case suggests that inflammation coupled with an amyloid deposit, induced the multiple intracranial bleeding, and resulted in the lack of PiB uptake. Findings from o ur case show that inflammation including...

Conclusions: NAE associated with anti-TNFα antibodies in pediatric IBD are rare. In severe NAE, we recommend to discontinue anti-TNFα therapy and to consider alternative treatment.
Conclusion: COVID-19 mainly affects the lower lobes of the lungs. GGO and consolidation in the lung periphery is the imaging hallmark in patients with COVID-19 infection. Absence of bronchiectasis, solitary nodules, cavitation, calcifications, tree-in-bud appearance, and reversed halo-sign indicates that these features are not common findings, at least in the earlier stages.

Abstract Although the findings of some studies have been indicative of the direct relationship between the severity of clinical findings and imaging, reports have been published regarding inconsistency of clinical findings with imaging and laboratory evidence. Physicians treating these patients frequently report cases in which patients, sometimes in the recovery phase and despite improvements in imaging indices, suddenly deteriorate and in some instances suddenly expire. This letter aimed to draw attention to the role of pulmonary thromboembolism as a potential and possible cause of clinical deterioration in covid...
Conclusions: Available data showed that pregnant patients in late pregnancy had clinical manifestations similar to non-pregnant adults. It appears that the risk of fetal distress, preterm delivery and prelabor rupture of membranes (PROM) rises with the onset of COVID-19 in the third trimester of pregnancy. There is also no evidence of intrauterine and transplacental transmission of COVID-19 to the fetus in the third trimester of pregnancies. PMID: 32440660 [PubMed]
