Abdominal Pain Caused by Viral Infection Is Not Always Trivial
We report on a 28-year-old previously healthy patient with initially elevated temperature and cough and developing most severe epigastric pain and peritonism in the right upper abdomen. A "bedside" sonography revealed a portal vein thrombosis, the CT additionally partial thromboses of the vena lienalis, vena mesenterica superior. During the examination, a SARS-CoV-2 infection (IgM, IgG) was confirmed. Currently (pandemic), extrapulmonary thromboembolism must also be considered.

CME/Answers: New-Onset Headache in Adults: Evidence-Based Assessment in the Primary Care Setting
Praxis (Bern 1994). 2021 Jun;110(8):469-470. doi: 10.1024/1661-8157/a003689.ABSTRACTCME/Answers: New-Onset Headache in Adults: Evidence-Based Assessment in the Primary Care Setting Abstract. Many people suffer from headaches. Primary (idiopathic) headaches such as migraine and tension type headaches are most common. They may significantly affect occupational and social aspects of daily life, but are usually not dangerous. On the contrary, secondary (symptomatic) headaches may be a symptom for an underlying life-threatening disorder. In these cases, the primary care physician may need to organize certain diagnostic measures...

Abdominal Pain Caused by Viral Infection Is Not Always Trivial
We report on a 28-year-old previously healthy patient with initially elevated temperature and cough and developing most severe epigastric pain and peritonism in the right upper abdomen. A "bedside" sonography revealed a portal vein thrombosis, the CT additionally partial thromboses of the vena lienalis, vena mesenterica superior. During the examination, a SARS-CoV-2 infection (IgM, IgG) was confirmed. Currently (pandemic), extrapulmonary thromboembolism must also be considered. For this purpose, sonography is the appropriate "search method" - it can be used from "head to toe", immediately and ...

POCUS - Thoracic Sonography in Times of Corona: What Sonographing Family Physicians Should Examine
Praxis (Bern 1994). 2021 Jun;110(8):439-448. doi: 10.1024/1661-8157/a003699.ABSTRACTPOCUS - Thoracic Sonography in Times of Corona: What Sonographing Family Physicians Should Examine Abstract. When performing chest sonography of patients with symptoms such as respiratory infection, dyspnea and chest pain, the primary goal is to find or exclude significant diagnoses such as pneumothorax, pleural effusion, pulmonary edema, tumors, pulmonary emboli, etc. as the cause of the symptoms. If infection with SARS-CoV-2 is present, COVID-19 pneumonia can be confirmed or excluded as the cause of the symptoms with a high degree of prob...

CME Sonography 98: Chest Ultrasound
Praxis (Bern 1994). 2021 Jun;110(8):453-459. doi: 10.1024/1661-8157/a003680.ABSTRACTCME Sonography 98: Chest Ultrasound Abstract. Chest sonography has long been an important part of ultrasound diagnostics. Historically, the first evidence found in chest sonography were pleural effusions. Peripheral consolidations (pneumonia, tumors, pulmonary embolism) and pneumothorax were added later. The COVID-19 pandemic with often massive lung infestation has significantly increased the interest in thoracic sonography. The partially specific changes caused by COVID-19 are presented in this article.PMID:34107766 | DOI:10.1024/1661-8157...

CME Dermatology 23/Answers: Hidradenitis suppurativa
Praxis (Bern 1994). 2021 Jun;110(8):471-472. doi: 10.1024/1661-8157/a003694.ABSTRACTCME Dermatology 23/Answers: Hidradenitis suppurativa Abstract. Hidradenitis suppurativa (Acne inversa) is a chronic skin disease characterized by recurrent inflammatory nodules, abscesses, and scarring mainly in the intertriginous areas. The prevalence is estimated to be 0.05 to 4.1 % worldwide, with women being more commonly affected. The exact pathogenesis remains unknown, but hair follicle occlusion and inflammation seem to be the initiating events. Several epidemiological correlations with smoking and obesity as well as mutations in gam...

Are Lung Ultrasound Findings in COVID-19 Pneumonia Typical or Specific?
Praxis (Bern 1994). 2021 Jun;110(8):421-425. doi: 10.1024/1661-8157/a003696.ABSTRACT The application of point-of-care lung ultrasound (LUS) in the first diagnosis and management of Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has gained a great interest during a pandemic that is undermining even the most advanced health systems. LUS demonstrated high sensitivity in the visualization of the interstitial signs of the typical pneumonia complicating the infection. However, although this disease gives typical lung alterations, the same LUS signs observed in COVID-19 pneumonia can be detected in other common pulmonary conditions. While ...
