Authors: Donmez YN, Aykan HH, Orhan D, Peker RO, Yilmaz M, Karagoz T Abstract Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour usually has a benign course and is very rarely associated with the heart. It can have life-threatening consequences, depending on its position or the presence of aggressive and metastatic complications. A 3-month-old boy presented with pericardial tamponade and was diagnosed with intrapericardial inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour associated with Coronavirus OC43. A large tumour attached to the left ventricle was completely removed by surgical resection and he made a full recovery. ABBREVIATIONS: A...

(NEW YORK) — WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne was shocked and hurt when her request to be medically excused for the season was denied by an independent medical panel. Having battled Lyme disease for more than a decade and now taking 64 pills a day, she thought she was definitely going to be considered high-risk to get severe illness if she contracted the coronavirus. The panel of independent doctors the league and union agreed upon to make that decision thought otherwise, ruling Monday that she was not “high risk, and should be permitted to play in the bubble.” The disease is not included on the Centers for Di...

Acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) first identified in Wuhan, China; and spread all over the world. Reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test for SARS-CoV-2 usually returns to negative in 20 days post-infection, but prolonged positivity has been reported up to 63 days. A case whose viral shedding lasted 60 days is reported from China. Herein we report a patient with a history of autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) for lymphoma whose RT-PCR test remained positive for SARS-CoV-2 for 74 days.

Many health care systems and clinicians have faced unprecedented challenges in the management of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) as the pandemic has expanded across the globe. Immunocompromised patients with hematologic malignancies have historically been more susceptible to viral respiratory diseases to include less virulent strains of coronavirus [1,2]. That risk is currently magnified given the increased virulence of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), unknown or unproven treatment options, and the development of regional systemic strains during this pandemic.

SARS CoV-2 is an enveloped, positive-sense, single-stranded RNA β-coronavirus homologous to the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) viruses1-3. Upon infection, SARS CoV-2 enters respiratory epithelial cells and type-2 pneumocytes and induces a secondary immune response which may be associated with cytokine storm, leading to an ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome) like picture4-8. Strategies to attenuate the severity of the inflammatory response have included the use of the Interleukin-6 receptor monoclonal antibody (ex.

Abstract The full spectrum of COVID-19 is still emerging, although several studies have highlighted that patients infected with the novel coronavirus can potentially develop a hypercoagulable state. However, several aspects related to the incidence and pathophysiology of the association between COVID-19 and pulmonary embolism are not well established. Here, we present a case of a patient with COVID-19 who developed acute pulmonary embolism. Clinical and laboratory data and findings of non-enhanced CT indicate possibility of acute pulmonary embolism, and support the decision to proceed with computed tomography pulmonary ang...

A 52-year-old woman with no medical history was admitted on March 18, 2020, presenting since 3 days asthenia, abdominal pain, and dry cough but no fever. Adenomegalies, splenomegaly, leukocytosis, and elevated LDH suggested mature lymphoproliferation. Considering the current health context, an RT-PCR testing for COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) was performed and found to be positive. Early chest CT showed no sign of pulmonary infection but multiple adenomegalies. An 18F-FDG PET/CT performed 5 days later to assess the extent of the hemopathy revealed the apparition of FDG-avid bilateral ground glass and subpleural curvil...
