Extranodal marginal zone lymphoma of mucosa ‐associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) in the thymus is a rare disease. Furthermore, amyloid deposition in thymic MALT lymphoma has not been previously described. Here, we report a case of a 35‐year‐old man with thymic MALT lymphoma with amyloid deposition and myasthenia gravis. Chest computed tom ography revealed an anterior mediastinal mass with internal cystic component and extensive calcification. Total thymectomy was performed and histopathologic findings were compatible with a diffuse amyloid deposition in extranodal marginal zone MALT lymphoma. The results indicate that ...

Autoimmune hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA) diseases induced by checkpoint inhibitors are being increasingly recognized. We aimed to characterize the spectrum of checkpoi...

ConclusionMost FUO with pulmonary lesions are identified during infections and autoimmune diseases. The most important diagnostic measure for FUO with pulmonary lesions is histopathology. Additionally, lung biopsy must be encouraged in multi ‐level hospitals in the future.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

In the past few blogs, I've been discussing the recent publication of my book,Evolution ’s Clinical Guidebook: Translating Ancient Genes Into Precision Medicine. The premise of this book is that modern medicine is based on an understanding of evolutionary processes. Evolution shows us the relationships between the subdisciplines of medicine that benefit directly from Precision Medicine (i.e., pathology, microbiology, clinical genetics, pharmacology, and bioinformatics). In Evolution's Clinical Guidebook, all of these diverse fields are brought together, under the subject of evolution. To illustrate, I have listed bel...

Conclusions Epidemiological studies have repeatedly helped identify definitive triggers for several diseases. As highlighted in this perspective report, previous studies strongly argue for the interplay between intrinsic factors and putative preventable extrinsic triggers/promoters for CTCL. Given the evidence of geographical regional clustering of CTCL patients, CTCL occurrence in unrelated family members and recent evidence implicating S. aureus in the pathogenesis/progression of CTCL, more research is needed to decipher the precise mechanism by which specific environmental exposures may be driving the pathogenesis of t...

ConclusionsOur systematic review update found that there is presently insufficient evidence on the effectiveness of training and support programs for peer leaders of disease-based support groups, highlighting the need for well-designed and rigorously conducted RCTs to examine the effects of training for peer leaders of support groups, especially in a rare disease context. The Scleroderma Patient-centered Intervention Network ’s trial of the Scleroderma Support group Leader EDucation Program will serve as such a trial.Systematic review registrationPROSPEROCRD42018096369

Exp Clin Endocrinol Diabetes DOI: 10.1055/a-0804-2715Addison’s disease – the traditional term for primary adrenal insufficiency (PAI) – is defined as the clinical manifestation of chronic glucocorticoid- and/or mineralocorticoid deficiency due to failure of the adrenal cortex which may result in an adrenal crisis with potentially life-threatening consequences. Even though efficient and safe pharmaceutical preparations for the substitution of endogenous gluco- and mineralocorticoids are established in therapy, the mortality in patients with PAI is still increased and the health-related quality of life (HRQ...
