Authors: Raspopovic S, Natalic D, Miketic V Abstract Primary benign and malign pericardial ind heart tumors are very rare (0.002-0.03%). Benign tumors of heart and pericardium are more frequent (myxoma, rhabdomyoma, lipoma, and papillary fibroelastoma of endocardium: 70% of all primary tumors). Because of low frequency, clinicians rarely and hardly diagnose these types of tumors. The affected patients wander from one healthcare center to another, usually with misleading diagnosis, such as cardiomyopathy or mitral stenosis. Pericardial and cardiac tumors cause pressure to surrounding structures. Because of the speci...

Without treatment 50% of pulmonary TB patients will be dead in 5 years. In low to middle income countries both TB and HIV can be ubiquitous, poor compliance can lead to drug resistance and malnourished infants are highly susceptible. TB can be very complex and this post will hopefully give you the backbone t...

AbstractA 29-year-old woman with past medical history of hypertension was referred to our hospital for the evaluation of kidney dysfunction (serum creatinine 1.0  mg/dL), proteinuria (0.54 g/gCre), and microscopic hematuria. Renal biopsy before the first pregnancy was supportive for benign nephrosclerosis with no evidence of vasculitis. After her second pregnancy and delivery when she was 32 years old, she developed proteinuria of 3.2 g/gCre, hematuria, and elevated serum creatinine level of 2.6 mg/dL. Second renal biopsy revealed necrotizing glomerulonephritis and her serum MPO-ANCA was positive, ...

d M Abstract Purulent pericarditis has become rare since the advent of antibiotics. Among the involved germs, S. pneumoniae remains the most implicated pathogen to evoke in principle, especially that prescription of systematic antibiotics for any febrile condition can considerably mask the clinical picture. A 36-year-old pregnant woman was visiting the emergency department for dyspnea and flu-like syndrom that had been going on for a week. The chest X-ray showed a white lung on the left and the transthoracic ultrasound revealed a pericardial effusion, resulting in pericardial drainage and pleural puncture that all...

We report a case of infective endocarditis complicated by intraventricular abscesses, pericarditis, and mycotic aneurysm due to S. agalactiae belonging to ST681 with a capsular serotype VI in a diabetic woman. The patient also had a myocardial infarction and was treated with percutaneous coronary intervention, pericardiocentesis, and 6 weeks of antibiotic treatment. Invasive infections due to serotype VI S. agalactiae are common in Asian countries such as Taiwan and Japan and continuous monitoring of invasive S. agalactiae strains is warranted.
