Recurrent Thymoma with Lung, Pleural, and Splenic Metastases Demonstrated on F-18 FDG PET/CT

Deverly Tumapon, E. Edmund Kim
Thymomas are rare, slow-growing, and less aggressive anterior mediastinal tumors of epithelial origin. Its propensity for extra-thoracic spread is uncommon. Regional assessment by chest CT-scan has been the imaging modality of choice for disease staging and restaging. However, there are reported cases of hematogenous metastases to the brain, liver, pancreas, and kidneys but very rarely to the spleen. We reported a case of recurrent thymoma with metastases to the lung, pleura, and spleen. F-18 FD...

Atopic Dermatitis Related to RNF31 Genetic Variant

César Daniel Alonso-Bello, Sonia del Carmen Chávez-Ocana, Carol Vivian Moncayo-Coello, María Isabel Rojo-Gutierrez
Atopic dermatitis is a chronic and inflammatory skin disease and the most severe forms could strongly impact the patient’s quality of life. Skin barrier dysfunction is considered the first step in the atopic march. RNF31 deficiency significantly changes the skin structure and increases its thickness. The keratinocytes show decreased expression of K10 and loricrin. In this way, RNF31 deficiency alters the proper functioning of the skin by altering the homeostasis of keratinocytes. W...

Contribution of Nested PCR for the Diagnosis of the Immunodeficiency Virus and the Detection of Endogenization of the Provirus in Serodiscordant Couples in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo: A Preliminary Diagnostic Study

Cagod B. Inkale, Isaac Woto, Alain K. K. Ilunga, Charlotte L. Tshinguta, Tarcisse Kilara, Gisele Kabengele, Christian Tshilenge, Berry I. Bongenya, Erick N. Kamangu
Context: The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) amplification technique has aroused and continues to arouse great enthusiasm in the biomedical sciences. It has enabled the development of ultrasensitive tests for HIV, thanks to which it is possible to diagnose this infection early, even before the appearance of specific antibodies. Objective: Confirm the molecular diagnosis of HIV in serodiscordant couples followed in Kinshasa and find the presence of the viral genome in seronegative partners. Metho...

Quality and Safety in the Phlebotomy Units of Medical Structures in Lubumbashi

Eric Kasamba Ilunga, Athy Kalumba Kambote, Philomene Katende Masanka, Emmanuel Prosper Malangu Mposhy
A correct pre-analytical phase procedure is essential to obtain an adequate sample, unfortunately this phase is littered with many errors and risks. It is within this framework that we carried out a survey in the laboratories of the city of Lubumbashi, Likasi and Kolwezi in the Democratic Republic of Congo and this by a questionnaire imposed on the heads of the laboratories. 3588 responses were validated and analyzed. Our results showed that the first line of the health level is more represented...

Neglected Dislocation of the Third, Fourth and Fifth Carpometacarpal Joint: A Case Report

Miodrag Vranjes, Milan Tosic, Branko Baljak
Carpometacarpal joint luxation, excluding the thumb, is very uncommon and this injury is often missed at initial examination. The 3rd and 4th carpometacarpal joint fracture-dislocation combined with a 5th carpometacarpal luxation is extremely rare. A few reports have been previously described regarding a neglected type of this injury. A 26-year-old, male laborer, sustained an injury and was admitted to our hospital 5 months later. We reported the case and treatment by using a simple operative te...

Synchronous Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma and Renal Epithelioid Angiomyolipoma with Hepatic Metastasis or Concurrence: A Clinicopathological Characteristics and Outcome

Duc Thanh Le, Thi Van Nguye, Tuan Anh Do, Chinh Trung Vu, Khoa Hong Pham, Tu Van Dao, Chu Van Nguyen
The epithelioid angiomyolipoma (EAML) is a variant of angiomyolipoma with predominant epithelioid component which has a potentially malignant behavior. We report a 40-year-old woman with the synchronous renal and hepatic epithelioid angiomyolipoma with preoperative papillary thyroid carcinoma. She had been operated to remove the tumors in her liver and kidney. The histopathological and immunohistochemical results of surgical specimens were concordant with epithelioid angiomyolipoma. Her thyroid ...

Acute Mesenteric Thrombosis in COVID-19: A Case Report

Sakit Fouad, Krimou Hicham, Errabi Nizar, Cisse Mohammed, El Kaoukabi Abdessamad, Belhamidi Said, Zinbi Ali, Zainoun Brahim, Menfaa Mohammed, Hasbi Samir, Choho Abdelkarim
Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) is associated with a high incidence of thromboembolic events. Patients with severe form have a higher risk as well as those with embolic factors (high age, obesity, diabetes, etc.). Acute mesenteric thrombosis is among the complications to be feared during this pandemic even in patients who do not have embologenic factors. The objective of this study is to discuss and understand the mechanism of occurrence of acute mesenteric thrombosis during COVID-19 infection. The ...

A Lesson Learned from a Rare Case of Missing Guide Wire

Ng Kwang How, Anwar Irawan Ruhani
Central venous catheterization via the Seldinger technique is a minimally invasive procedure which is increasingly and widely performed. It is associated with immediate and delayed complications which might cause significant morbidity and mortality. The retained guidewire is a rare, potentially serious but completely avoidable complication. We reported a 74-year-old gentleman who presented with upper gastrointestinal bleeding and was successfully resuscitated. Central venous catheterization was ...

Correlation between the Differences between the Two Adjacent Pulse Wave Velocities and Body Mass Index

Guanghui Qin
Objective: To investigate the correlation between the differences between the two adjacent pulse wave velocities and body mass index (BMI). Methods: Body mass index and pulse velocity difference were measured in 60 patients. Results: The difference of pulse wave velocity between adjacent two times in patients with BMI < 24 was less than that in patients with BMI ≥ 24, the difference was statistically significant. Conclusion: Pulse velocity difference is related to body mass index.
