Aberrant right subclavian artery presenting as tracheoesophagial fistula in a 50-year-old lady: Case report of a rare presentation of a common arch anomaly

Sayyed Ehtesham Hussain Naqvi, Mohammed Hanif Beg, Shyam Kumar Singh Thingam, Eram AliAnnals of Pediatric Cardiology 2017 10(2):190-193 A 50-year-old, woman with a 2-year history of progressive dysphagia and 2-month history of chronic cough was referred to our center in a state of generalized sepsis. Provisional diagnosis of carcinoma esophagus with tracheoesophagial fistula was made. Evaluation of the patient revealed an aberrant right subclavian artery with retroesophageal course with compression of the esophagus and trachea with fistulous communication in between. The patient was managed with medical stabilization and with feeding jejunostomy, but she succumbed to underlying severe sepsis. This presentation of aberrant subclavian artery at this advanced age rare and is therefore reported.

We report a rare case of 74-year-old female of primary hyperparathyroidism caused by parathyroid carcinoma (PC) and coexisting multiple parathyroid adenomas. She was referred to our hospital for primary hyperparathyroidism and a suspected thyroid tumor. She had no family history of malignant tumor. Computed tomography (CT) and ultrasonography of the neck revealed some masses posterior to both thyroid lobes. Those masses were believed to be parathyroid lesions. However, another mass located posterior to the right upper thyroid lobe seemed to be heterogeneous, which indicated a malignant thyroid tumor as well as parathyroid ...

We describe a unique, complex case of a man resulted affected by both APS-2 and MEN-2a. The patient developed Hashimoto's thyroiditis, diabetes mellitus type 1 and AAD, despite testing negative for adrenal cortex autoantibodies (ACA) and steroid 21-hydroxylase autoantibodies (21-OHAb). Moreover, he had also a family history for MEN-2a and he first developed medullay thyroid cancer, then bilateral pheochromocytoma on the adrenal substrate of an AAD. On adrenal histology we found complete bilateral cortical atrophy in the presence of a lymphocytic infiltration and fibrosis, confirming an ACA and 21-OHAb-negative AAD. This da...

Conclusions: Evaluation of ctDNA was feasible among individuals with NEN. Liquid biopsies are non-invasive methods that can provide personalized options for targeted therapies in NEN patients. Patients and Methods: Molecular alterations in 338 plasma samples from 320 patients with NEN were evaluated using clinical-grade NGS of ctDNA (Guardant360®) across multiple institutions. The test detects single nucleotide variants in 54-73 genes, copy number amplifications, fusions, and indels in selected genes. PMID: 32477464 [PubMed]

We report olfactory and gustatory dysfunctions in a patient with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) treated with etanercept during COVID-19. A 53-year-old female showing AS controlled with tumor necrosis factor-α inhibitor, etanercept, had been diagnosed with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection, presenting cough and rhinorrhea. One month after diagnosis, she complained about hyposmia and hypogeusia two days before the seronegative conversion of SARS-CoV-2, which were confirmed by a neurological examination. We speculate that the etanercept may have delayed the development of olfactory and ...

Authors: Machado-Curbelo C Abstract The main characteristics and challenging symptoms of COVID-19, caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, are related to re-spiratory distress. Although most patients have mild symptoms such as fever, headache, cough, myalgia and anosmia, some develop acute respiratory distress syndrome, leading to death in many cases. Human coronavirus (CoVs) were responsible for two previ-ous worldwide outbreaks: Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV). Several reports of these outbreaks demonstrated that these diseases affected the central ...
