Vitiligo and Rise in Blood Pressure - a Case-Control Study in a Referral Dermatology Clinic in Southern Iran.

Conclusion: According to our results, vitiligo patients were more susceptible to hypertension while no association could be found between characteristics of the disease and rise in blood pressure. PMID: 32606881 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates that TPPU effectively lowers L-NAME-induced hypertension in rats. The mechanism of its antihypertensive effect is likely mediated by the suppression of ACE gene and protein expression, leading to a lower Ang II level. PMID: 32767352 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatous disease of unknown etiology. The outcome is quite variable and is mainly related to persistent inflammatory processes and the development of fibrosis. Many prognostic factors have been described, but the disease evolution is not yet entirely known. The nonthreatening course is characterized by spontaneous involution or stability after treatment withdrawal. Löfgren's syndrome is a subset within the spectrum of sarcoidosis phenotypes, composed of acute onset of fever, bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy, erythema nodosum and/or bilateral ankle periarticular inflammat...

Abstract At least 5% of sarcoidosis patients die from their disease, usually from advanced pulmonary sarcoidosis. The three major problems encountered in advanced pulmonary sarcoidosis are pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension, and respiratory infections. Pulmonary fibrosis is the result of chronic inflammation, but other factors including abnormal wound healing may be important. Sarcoidosis-associated pulmonary hypertension (SAPH) is multifactorial including parenchymal fibrosis, vascular granulomas, and hypoxia. Respiratory infections can be cause by structural changes in the lung and impaired immunity due ...

Abstract Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a well-known complication of sarcoidosis, defined by a mean pulmonary artery pressure of ≥25 mm Hg. Since both PH and sarcoidosis are rare diseases, data on sarcoidosis-associated PH (SAPH) is retrieved mostly from small retrospective studies. Estimated prevalence of SAPH ranges from 3% in patients referred to a tertiary center up to 79% in patients awaiting lung transplant. Most patients with SAPH show advanced parenchymal disease as the underlying mechanism. However, some patients have disproportional elevated pulmonary artery pressure, and PH can occur in sarcoi...

vas M Abstract Hepatic sarcoidosis is a relatively common manifestation of extrapulmonary sarcoidosis. It occurs in 20 to 30% of cases and is rarely severe. However, a cluster of patients may develop severe complications such as cirrhosis and portal hypertension. In this review, we describe the current knowledge of clinical, biological, pathological, and radiological features of liver involvement in sarcoidosis and discuss essential clues for management and treatment.

Authors: Grant Y, Freilich S, Horwitz MD, Shemesh D, Crane J Abstract The ideal choice of vascular access in patients requiring haemodialysis is an arteriovenous fistula. However, an important often under-reported complication encountered at follow-up is symptoms of tingling or numbness in the hand. This may represent carpal tunnel syndrome, impairment of the median nerve as it traverses through the carpal tunnel at the wrist by focal compression of this nerve. Contributory factors in the presence of an arteriovenous fistula may include venous hypertension and varying steal syndrome phenomena provoking micro-ischae...

CONCLUSION: Parents of children with CHD have significant knowledge gaps regarding Fetal Echocardiography. Our findings suggest that the current parent counseling is inadequate and needs further focus, especially in developing countries, to promote parents` understanding of the prenatal cardiac diagnosis. Data on fetal echocardiography should be clarified at the initial diagnosis of pediatric CHD. PMID: 32779409 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract BACKGROUND: HSG (hyperplasia suppressor gene, also named Mitofusion-2, Mfn-2) gene polymorphisms have been studied as a candidate gene in essential hypertension, but no clear consensus has been reached in the Chinese population. To systematically explore their possible association, a case-control study was conducted in a central Chinese population. METHODS AND RESULTS: We recruited 402 EH patients and 267 normotensive (NT) control subjects. A total of 6 tag SNPs of HSG gene were genotyped successfully by TaqMan assay. The results showed that genotype distribution and the allelic frequency of rs873457...
