Mucinous Cystadenocarcinoma of the Pancreas with Cyst Infection in a Male Patient.

Mucinous Cystadenocarcinoma of the Pancreas with Cyst Infection in a Male Patient. Intern Med. 2020;59(19):2383-2389 Authors: Tomishima K, Fujisawa T, Fukumura Y, Ushio M, Sato S, Amano N, Murata A, Tsuzura H, Sato S, Matsumoto K, Shimada Y, Genda T, Isayama H Abstract Follow-up computed tomography revealed a 40-mm pancreatic tail cyst in a 59-year-old man with type 1 diabetes mellitus. An intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm was suspected; mucinous cystic neoplasm (MCN) was not considered because the patient was a man. During follow-up, cyst infection occurred but was improved by conservative treatment. At the 24-month follow up examination, cyst nodules had developed, corresponding to an increase in the carbohydrate antigen 19-9 level. Mucinous cystadenocarcinoma (MCC) was diagnosed pathologically based on distal pancreatectomy. A diagnosis of male MCN/MCC is often delayed, which may lead to a poor prognosis. MCN infection is also rare and poorly recognized. We observed an atypical male case of MCN/MCC. PMID: 32999265 [PubMed - in process]

In conclusion, it remains unclear if brain-specific regional and temporal changes occur in the expression of the different APP variants during AD progression. Since APP is also found in blood cells, assessing the changes in APP mRNA expression in peripheral blood cells from AD patients has been considering an alternative. However, again the quantification of APP mRNA in peripheral blood cells has generated controversial results. Brain APP protein has been analyzed in only a few studies, probably as it is difficult to interpret the complex pattern of APP variants and fragments. We previously characterized the soluabl...

Conclusions: There is shortage of data from prospective studies which could confirm the benefits of early treatment initiation based on the presence of the subclinical organ damage in T1DM. Most evidence comes from T2DM trials, where effective preventive measures were identified i.e.: smoking cessation, reasonable blood glucose control, efficacious hypertension treatment, and dyslipidemia management, as well as renoprotection. There is still a field for further research to see if routine assessment of asymptomatic vascular damage and early implementation of aggressive treatment would reduce mortality excess from CVD in T1D...

Conclusions Bone formation in the extraction socket of the type 1 diabetic rats was reduced. PTH did not improve the healing of hard and soft tissues. The different PTH administration regimes (continuous vs. intermittent) had similar effect on tissue healing. These results demonstrated that the metabolic characteristics of the hyperglycemic rats produced a condition that was unable to respond to PTH treatment.

CONCLUSIONS: T1DM girls revealed a decreased ratio of cortical bone area/muscle area, reflecting disturbed adaptation of the cortical shaft to the muscle force. When the Z-scores of cortical shell dimensions were investigated, cases in Tanner stage 5 diverged from "less mature" individuals, which may suggests that bone shaft development in these individuals was impaired, affecting both size and strength.

AbstractAimsPlatelets are pivotal in arterial thrombosis, and platelet hyperresponsiveness may contribute to the increased incidence of cardiovascular events in diabetes mellitus. Consequently, we hypothesized that increased in vitro platelet aggregation responses exist in men with diabetes mellitus.MethodsThe Danish Cardiovascular Screening Trial (DANCAVAS) is a community-based cardiovascular screening trial including men aged 65 –74 years. Platelet aggregation was tested using 96-well light transmission aggregometry with thrombin receptor-activating peptide (TRAP), adenosine diphosphate, collagen type 1, arach...

Conclusion. These data demonstrate that DM may contribute to IDD by increasing aggrecan degradation and promoting cell apoptosis, which may represent early indicators of the involvement of DM in the pathogenesis of IDD. Level of Evidence: N/A

We present a 21 ‐year‐old female with diabetes mellitus type 1 diagnosed with SPM which improved after four days with conservative treatment. A 21 ‐year old female with diabetes mellitus type 1 presented to our hospital's emergency department having suffered from shortness of breath, mild chest pain, and vomiting following her arrival after a long‐distance flight two days earlier. Symptoms had since subsided and physical examination was no rmal. Blood analysis revealed increased D‐dimers and diabetic ketoacidosis. Computed tomography (CT) examination excluded pulmonary embolism but demonstrated significant medias...
