Treatment of Caustic Ingestion Associated Esophageal Stricture with Budesonide

Marisa L Gallant, Sabina A Mir and Steven N Lichtman

Corresponding author: Marisa L Gallant, Department of Pediatrics, Division of General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, University of North Carolina, 260 MacNider Building, CB#7220, USA

We present the images from the upper endoscopy of a 5 year-old patient who developed an esophageal stricture from caustic ingestion. These images are from before and after a two-week course of topical budesonide. Her remarkable improvement suggests that we need more studies to investigate topical steroid use for caustic esophageal injury.

Advances in Cytoarchitectonic Mapping of the Human Amygdala and the Hippocampus

Olga Kedo, Karl Zilles and Katrin Amunts

Corresponding author: Olga Kedo, Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine (INM-1), Research Centre Jülich, 52425 Jülich, Germany

The human amygdala and hippocampus are key structures for emotion and memory processing. They are involved in various neurological and psychiatric disorders. Since each of both brain regions is structurally and functionally extremely segregated, their numerous subdivisions are implicated to different degrees in specific pathological processes, e.g. epilepsy.

Shilpa Y Krishnegowda and Sudhir Kumar N

Corresponding author: Sudhir Kumar, Department of Dermatology, Adichunchanagiri Institute of Medical Sciences, B G Nagar, Karnataka, India.

A 60 year old female was referred for evaluation of blackish fingers and toes since 2 days. Her heart rate (130 beats/minute), blood pressure (70/40 mmHg), respiratory rate (28 cycles/minute) and raised total cell counts revealed that she was in septic shock. Cutaneous examination revealed symmetrical cyanosis of the palms and soles with blackish fingers and toes (Figure 1a and Figure 1b).

The image is an overlay of 3 images representing the distribution of the 3 most abundant fluorophore signals that were extracted using advanced factorization algorithms. The 3 images were digitally colored red (1), green (2) and blue (3). The signals localized to different components in the RPE as illustrated by color mixing: RPE Cells (azure), sub-RPE deposits (pink).

The image is an overlay of 3 images representing the distribution of the 3 most abundant fluorophore signals that were extracted using advanced factorization algorithms. The 3 images were digitally colored red (1), green (2) and blue (3). Localization of the signals into different structures is illustrated by color mixing: Remaining RPE cells (light blue), Granule aggregates shed from dying RPE cells (yellow), Basal Laminar Deposits (orange).

Carcinoid in Ebstein's Anomaly - What are the odds!

Jen-Li Looi, Selwyn Wong, Ruvin Gabriel and William Harrison

Corresponding author: Jen-Li Looi, Department of Cardiology, Middlemore Hospital, Private Bag 93311, Otahuhu, Auckland, New Zealand.

A 72-year-old woman with metastatic carcinoid/neuroendocrine tumour NETG1 presented with progressive right heart failure and recurrent marked ascites. An echocardiogram showed a significantly dilated right ventricle with moderate systolic impairment. The tricuspid valve leaflets were tethered resulting in poor coaptation causing severe tricuspid regurgitation (Panel A).

Pulmonary Embolism and Disseminated Intravascular Coagulopathy Associated with Right Atrial Mass

Jen-Li Looi and Selwyn Wong

Corresponding author: Jen-Li Looi, Department of Cardiology, Middlemore Hospital, Private Bag 93311, Otahuhu, Auckland, New Zealand.

30-year-old man normally fit and healthy presented with collapse and palpitation. He was tachycardic with a heart rate of 120 beats/min and hypoxic with oxygen saturation of 85% on arrival. CT pulmonary angiography confirmed extensive bilateral segmental and sub segmental pulmonary emboli with evidence of right heart strain (Panel A).

Corresponding author: Andre Brito Queiroz, Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Division, Sao Paulo University Medical School, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

A 32-year-old woman presented with a one-year history of mild abdominal pain in the left upper quadrant and a palpable pulsatile abdominal mass on physical examination. The results of laboratory investigations, including serum urea and ceatinine levels, were unremarkable. Contrast enhanced Computed Tomography (CT) showed a large left renal artery aneurysm, measuring 5,0cm by 3,5cm, but no evidence of renal perfusion alterations or other vascular abnormalities.

Parasite attacks its own symbionts. Elimination of Wolbachia, mutualistic endobacteria of filarial nematodes of medical and veterinary importance, by induction of authopahgy, parasite's intracellular defense mechanism. The photo shows the direct connection of lysosomes (L) to Wolbachia-contained vacuole (W) without autophagosome formation during the induction of autophagy by RNAi specific treatment for Target of Rapamysin (TOR).
