Lyme disease atypically presenting with a singular symptom: Unilateral chorioretinitis.
CONCLUSIONS: Lyme disease is rare, but must be kept in mind when investigating the etiology of chorioretinitis and retinal vasculitis. The patient reported here is, to our knowledge, the second case reported in literature that shows atypical clinic for Lyme disease with unilateral chorioretinitis without Erythema chronicum migrans (ECM).

Authors: Hammerschlag MR, Sharma R Abstract INTRODUCTION: Azithromycin was recommended as the first-line therapeutic regimen for treatment of genital infections in men and women by the Centers for Disease Control in 1998. A series of studies of azithromycin for treatment of rectal chlamydial infection in men who have sex with men (MSM) found that azithromycin was significantly less effective than doxycycline. AREAS COVERED: Literature on treatment of rectal C. trachomatis from 2000 through May 2020 was searched using PubMed. Retrospective and observational studies were identified documenting the frequency and t...

CONCLUSIONS: MMD-associated aneurysms occurred in 3.3% of the MMD cohort in this study, of which 63.6% were major-artery aneurysms and 36.4% were non-major-artery aneurysms. The major-artery group included 17.9% that became angiographically worse, while 31.2% were growing or hemorrhaging in the non-major-artery group. PMID: 33029969 [PubMed]

Abstract Objectives: Retina abnormalities are related to cognitive disorders in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). Retinal amyloid beta (Aβ) can be labeled by curcumin. We measured Aβ content in the cerebrum and retina of APPswe/PS1dE9 (APP) transgenic mice with early age to investigate the correlation between cerebrum and retina. Methods: APP mice and age-matched wild-type mice were investigated every month from age 2 months to 6 months to assess changes in Aβ content in the retina and cerebrum. At the beginning of each month, mice were fed a curcumin diet (50 mg/kg/day) for 7 cons...
We present the case of limb ischemia secondary to accidental intra-arterial buprenorphine/naloxone film injection successfully treated with sublingual nitroglycerin. A 39-year-old man with history of intravenous drug use presented sudden severe left hand pain since three days prior to evaluation. Pain was preceded by self-injection of dissolved buprenorphine/naloxone sublingual film onto the affected arm. An arteriogram suggested severe vasoconstriction in the absence of frank thrombosis. Patient was initially treated with continuous heparin infusion and nifedipine. Forty-eight hours later, due to poor response, sublingual...
CONCLUSION: Birdshot retinochoroidopathy can be found in Hispanic patients. Our study suggests that the characteristics upon presentation in Hispanics may be similar to those of Caucasian cohorts. PMID: 33031692 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
