AbstractLong-term sequel of acute COVID-19, commonly referred to as long COVID, has affected millions of patients worldwide. Long COVID patients display persistent or relapsing and remitting symptoms that include fatigue, breathlessness, cough, myalgia, arthralgia, sleep disturbance, cognitive impairment and skin rashes. Due to the shared clinical features, laboratory and imaging findings, long COVID could mimic rheumatic disease posing a diagnostic challenge. Our comprehensive literature review will help rheumatologist to be aware of long COVID manifestations and differentiating features from rheumatic diseases to ensure ...

ConclusionThese results suggest that DLCO and respiratory symptoms tend to normalize or improve 1  year after hospitalization for COVID-19 in most patients. However, there is also a non-negligible number of patients (about one-third) in whom respiratory changes persist and will need prolonged follow-up.

AbstractThe literature on neonates with SARS-CoV-2 is mainly concerned with perinatal cases, and scanty data are available about environmentally infected neonates. To fill knowledge gaps on the course and prognosis of neonatal cases, we analyzed 1-year data from the Turkish Neonatal Society in this prospective cohort study of neonates with postnatal transmission. Data from 44 neonatal intensive care units (NICUs), of neonates with positive RT-PCR results at days 5 –28 of life, were extracted from the online registry system and analyzed. Of 176 cases, most were term infants with normal birth weight. Fever was the most...

We present a case of IA in a 49-year-old man with end-stage renal disease who presented with fever and developed a submandibular swelling. AbstractInvasive aspergillosis (IA) is a fatal disease and is related to immunocompromised patients like HIV, solid organ/allogeneic stem cell transplant patients, patients on immunosuppressive therapy or chemotherapy agents, burn patients and malnourished patients. Diagnosis is challenging due to the non-specific nature of symptoms. Usually, the patient presents with fever and respiratory symptoms such as cough and haemoptysis. We present a case of IA in a 49-year-old man with end-stag...

In this study, we used the Simplified Cough Score (SCS) and the Leicester Cough Questionnaire (LCQ) score to investigate potential risk factors for postoperative cough. Between January 2017 and June 2021, we collected the clinical data of 517 patients, the SCS at three days after surgery and the LCQ at two weeks and six weeks after surgery. Then, univariate and multivariate analyses were used to identify the independent risk factors for postoperative cough. The clinical baseline data of the cough group and the non-cough group were similar. However, the cough group had longer operation time and more blood loss. The patients...

The Archivist has never liked the term ‘chest infection’ or even ‘lower respiratory tract infection’ (LRTI); these terms seem vague. Little P et al [Lancet 2021; 398: 1417–26. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0140-6736(21)01431-8] have recruited children, aged 6 months to 12 years presenting in primary care with acute uncomplicated LRTI, judged to be infective in origin, where pneumonia was not suspected clinically, with symptoms for less than 21 days. This well-established primary care research group have defined LRTI as having an acute cough as the predominant symptom and with other symptoms or sign...
