[Alveolar hemorrhage and cocaine use].
Authors: Underner M, Perriot J, Wallaert B, Peiffer G, Meurice JC, Jaafari N Abstract In France, cocaine is the second most commonly illicit drug used after cannabis. Cocaine, mainly smoked in the form of crack, can be responsible for a wide range of respiratory disorders. The aim of this systematic literature review was to clarify what is known about the link between cocaine use and alveolar hemorrhage. We performed a Medline search covering the period 1980-2016 and collected data from 84 articles. The number of acute forms described in the literature is small but postmortem studies show that hidden form...

[Sleepiness, continuous positive airway pressure and the obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome].
Authors: Lerousseau L Abstract Excessive daytime sleepiness is a major symptom in cases of the obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome. Most often, it is vastly improved by treatment with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). The most effective way to confirm its disappearance is through wakefulness maintenance testing. If residual sleepiness remains, despite CPAP, further diagnostic investigation must be carried out. Firstly, it must be assessed whether the treatment is fully effective (apnea hypopnea index6h/night). If this is the case, the possibility of other situations responsible for excessive daytime...

[DRESS syndrome secondary to pyrazinamide: An uncommon complication of tuberculosis treatment].
CONCLUSIONS: Discovery of DRESS syndrome during tuberculosis treatment is an uncommon complication and requires a searching for the responsible drug. That should be difficult because tuberculosis drugs are often given as fixed-dose combination. Physicians have to bear in mind the potential role of pyrazinamide.

[Anti-tumor immunotherapy in malignant pleural mesothelioma].
CONCLUSIONS: However, several exciting immunotherapies other than ICI are presently being evaluated in MPM and are reported in this article. Moreover, many questions still need to be answered about immunotherapy: what is its potential value as first line treatment? How to target the best candidates for these treatments? Which combinations between immunotherapy and standard chemotherapy, targeted therapies, surgery or radiotherapy? Finally, it is now essential that every clinician has sufficient knowledge about the possible toxicities of immunotherapy. PMID: 29415822 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Revue de...

[Effect of a surgical mask on six minute walking distance].
Authors: Person E, Lemercier C, Royer A, Reychler G Abstract INTRODUCTION: Six minutes walking test (6MWT) is regularly used in pulmonology. To minimize the risk of cross-infection, some patients must wear surgical mask at rest and sometimes during exercise. AIM OF THE STUDY: To evaluate the effect of wearing a surgical mask during 6MWT in healthy subjects. MATERIAL AND METHOD: It is a prospective study on 44 healthy subjects. After a first 6MWT for training, they performed randomly two 6MWT: with or without a surgical mask. Distance and dyspnea, heart rate and saturation variations were recorded. ...

Authors: Merad M, Alibay A, Ammari S, Antoun S, Bouguerba A, Ayed S, Vincent F, pour le Grrr-OH Abstract Pulmonary tumor thrombotic microangiopathy syndrome is a rare clinicopathological entity in which tumor cell micro-emboli in the pulmonary microcirculation induced thrombotic microangiopathy. This can cause respiratory failure, and acute or sub-acute right heart failure. Histological features include micro tumor emboli in the small arteries and arterioles of the lung associated with thrombus formation and fibro-cellular and fibro-muscular intimal proliferation. The diagnosis is however extremely difficult to mak...

Authors: Balavoine C, Andréjak C, Marchand-Adam S, Blanc FX Abstract Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) pulmonary infections are increasingly frequent in pneumological practice. The diagnosis is based on an association of clinical, microbiological and radiological criteria. Some risk factors for NTM disease have been described, including chronic respiratory diseases, but without specific focus on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD patients have more risk to be infected by NTM than patients with the main other chronic respiratory diseases (except cystic fibrosis) (odds ratio [OR] at 15.7 in a c...

This demonstration required a quantitative analysis of lung structures called morphometry. This is possible thanks to stereology, a set of methods based on principles of geometry and statistics. His work has helped to better understand the morphological harmony of the lung, which is essential for its proper functioning. An imbalance leads to pathophysiology such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in adults and bronchopulmonary dysplasia in neonates. It is by stud...

[Membranous microparticles and respiratory disease].
Authors: Renaud-Picard B, Toussaint J, Leclercq A, Reeb J, Kessler L, Toti F, Kessler R Abstract Microparticles (MP) are plasmic membrane fragments released from cells after physiological stimulation or stress conditions like inflammation or infection. Their production is correlated to the rate of cell apoptosis. All types of cells can produce MP but they are produced mainly by platelets, endothelial cells, and leukocytes. They carry many bio-active molecules on their surface, specific to the parental cell, giving them the ability to be biomarkers and bio-effectors. MP are present in circulating blood, tissues and ...

CONCLUSION: Necrotizing pneumonia caused by S. aureus producing Panton-Valentine leukocidin usually occurs in young subjects without comorbidities.

Panton-Valentine leukocidin should not be discarded if not all the symptoms are typical. Antibiotic therapy including an antitoxin drug such as linezolid or clindamycin should be initiated promptly.

[Mediastinitis after endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration].
CONCLUSION: This episode of Streptococcus constellatus mediastinitis was a complication of the EBUS-TBNA procedure. The operating channel of the bronchoscope had probably been contaminated when aspirating the oral cavity secretions with subsequent needle contamination and a direct bacterial inoculation during the transbronchial mediastinal puncture. The severity of such a complication justifies a medical consultation in cases of fever or chest pain following an EBUS-TBNA procedure.
