Acute benign pleural effusion, a rare presentation of hepatitis A virus: a case report and review of the  literature
ConclusionAcute hepatitis A virus rarely presents with pleural effusion, usually following a benign course with spontaneous resolution in most patients. Pleural effusion does not change the prognosis or require any invasive treatment. Thus, further invasive procedures are not recommended and would only complicate this self-resolving benign condition.

Klebsiella invasive liver abscess syndrome presenting with a central nervous system manifestation secondary to latent cholecystitis: a case report
ConclusionsWe describe a rare case of  Klebsiella liver abscess syndrome, which first presented with a central nervous system manifestation. Our patient was successfully treated via an early surgical intervention and subsequent antibiotic therapy. Although surgical drainage remains the cornerstone treatment for brain abscess, when a brain abscess is found, and there is a high index of suspicion for the existence of a liver abscess,Klebsiella liver abscess syndrome should be considered as a possible diagnosis.

Favorable control of hepatocellular carcinoma with peritoneal dissemination by surgical resection using indocyanine green fluorescence imaging: a case report and review of the literature  
ConclusionWhen considering surgical intervention for peritoneal recurrence in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma, complete resection is mandatory. Given that disseminated nodules are sometimes too small to be detected by preoperative imaging studies, intraoperative indocyanine green fluorescence may be an essential tool for determining the indications for surgical resection.

Acute appendicitis during the recovery phase of dengue hemorrhagic fever: two case reports  
ConclusionAlthough precise pathophysiology and associations of the surgical abdomen with dengue fever remain to be elucidated, there are known factors in dengue fever that can potentially lead to secondary bacterial infections and surgical abdomen. Awareness and increased suspicion by the clinician are paramount to detect such complications early, especially in children who demonstrate unusual clinical features during various stages of dengue infection.

Type 1 neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation: a case report
ConclusionThe diagnosis can be made based on the presence of clinical and imaging features. The presence of “eye-of-the-tiger” sign on magnetic resonance imaging must be considered a nearly pathognomonic sign of neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation presence. Treatment after high-severity presentation remains directed toward symptomatic findings. Both dopamine agonists and anticholinergic age nts are useful to treat motor symptoms, but there is not yet an effective treatment to stop the underlying degeneration. New therapeutic approaches are needed to counteract late stages of the disease and improve prognosis...

Persistent hyperlactatemia in decompensated type I diabetes with hepatic glycogenosis and hepatomegaly: Mauriac syndrome: a case report
ConclusionsThis case reports shows that Mauriac syndrome is a rare condition that should be considered in a setting of poorly controlled type I diabetes, hepatomegaly, Cushingoid appearance, and hyperlactatemia. The current treatment of this condition is a  strict control of blood glucose levels with an attempt to achieve an acceptable glycated hemoglobin value. (Source: Journal of Medical Case Reports)

Well-differentiated cerebellum in an ovarian mature cystic teratoma: a  case report and review of the literature
ConclusionWe report this case of well-differentiated cerebellum within ovarian teratoma to expand the pool of cases reported in literature of this extremely rare entity, as only 22 cases with such findings have been reported in literature to the best of our knowledge. This finding poses a diagnostic challenge to the pathologist due to its rarity and its similarity to immature teratoma. We thus emphasize that thorough sampling of ovarian teratoma is of paramount importance and to keep the aforementioned diagnosis in mind and not confuse it with immature elements, especially in intraoperative consultation and frozen sections...

Recurrent pneumothorax in a human immunodeficiency virus-positive patient with multidrug-resistant tuberculosis: a rare case of bronchopleural fistula:  a case report
ConclusionsComplicated human immunodeficiency virus-related multidrug-resistant tuberculosis is not uncommon in settings of high human immunodeficiency virus/tuberculosis prevalence and is often associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Early diagnosis and treatment of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, with rigorous monitoring for human immunodeficiency virus-positive individuals, is necessary to prevent debilitating complications.

High-risk twin pregnancy: case report of an adolescent patient with cystic fibrosis and systemic lupus erythematosus
We present the first case to our knowledge of a spontaneous twin pregnancy in a 16-year-old Caucasian patient with cystic fibrosis and systemic lupus erythematosus. Cystic fibrosis is one of the most common autosomal recessive genetic disorders and primarily affects the respiratory and digestive systems. Systemic lupus erythematosus is a chronic inflammatory disease of unknown cause that affects nearly every organ. Patients with cystic fibrosis or systemic lupus erythematosus are progressively having longer life expectancy and better quality of life, which has led a greater number of female patients reporting the desire to...
