Amyloid goiter in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis and end-stage renal disease
Ayşe Şeker, Taşkin Erkinüresin, Hakan DemirciIndian Journal of Nephrology 2020 30(2):125-128The association between amyloidosis and collagen vascular diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is well-documented. Amyloid goiter is an extremely rare pathologic condition caused by a massive amyloid infiltration of the thyroid tissue. Our patient had been diagnosed with RA 20 years ago and was on hemodialysis for 7 years. He was assessed for decreased appetite, dysphagia, and nausea during the hemodialysis. On physical examination, the thyroid was diffusely enlarged with multiple nodules. He was biochemic...

A rare cause of coagulopathy in a patient with rapidly progressive renal failure
We describe a rare cause of coagulopathy in a patient with rapidly progressive renal failure due to acquired factor X deficiency caused by systemic light chain amyloidosis (AL). The patient had prolonged prothrombin and activated partial thromboplastin time, which got corrected on mixing with normal plasma, and factor X activity was markedly reduced at 5%. Rectal biopsy and immunofixation electrophoresis established the diagnosis of AL and the patient was started on bortezomib-based chemotherapy. Hence, appropriate coagulation work-up should be conducted in patients with renal dysfunction with prolonged coagulation tim...

We present a case of a 51-year-old male with paresis and altered mental status. Screening for neurological diseases such as stroke, Guillain-Barre, meningitis and encephalitis were negative. In the evolution, he developed acute kidney failure and was submitted to 4 dialysis sessions. After talking to the family, we discovered he had ingested over 50 star fruits prior to the acute neurologic deficits. He recovered renal function so a renal biopsy was not required. Physicians should actively look for star fruit ingestion history in patients presenting with unexplained acute kidney injury with or without neurological features...

Chylothorax in a child with nephrotic syndrome
We present a case of an 8-year-old boy with nephrotic syndrome who presented with prolonged respiratory difficulty and dry cough. A detailed evaluation revealed left chylothorax secondary to thrombosis of the left brachiocephalic vein.

This case highlights the need to consider venous thrombosis as a cause of chylothorax in patients with nephrotic syndrome to institute appropriate treatment. (Source: Indian Journal of Nephrology)
