Thilina Gunawardena, MBBS, MD, MRCS, Balasubramanium Saseekaran, MBBS, MD, MRCS, Gayan Bandara, MBBS, MD, MRCS, Rezni Cassim, MBBS, MS and Mandika Wijeyaratne, MBBS, MS, PhD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 11, 2020

Pacemaker lead associated venous thrombosis is common. However, due to collateral venous drainage those who are affected rarely become symptomatic. Superior vena cava (SVC) syndrome is a constellation of signs and symptoms that occurs as a result of obstruction to flow in the superior vena cava. In this case report we present a patient who developed this complication following multiple transvenous pacemaker wires. After failed percutaneous venoplasty he was treated successfully with a right inte...

Omid Mohamadi

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 05, 2020

The American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA) position statement specifically defines Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) as follows: "Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) is a neurological childhood (pediatric) speech sound disorder in which the precision and consistency of movements underlying speech are impaired in the absence of neuromuscular deficits (e.g., abnormal reflexes, abnormal tone). CAS may occur as a result of known neurological impairment, in association with complex neurobe...

Recep Ozturk, Emin Kursat Bulut and Bedii Safak Gungor

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 05, 2020

The aim of this study is to investigate whether true-cut biopsy before excision contributes to clinical outcomes in patients diagnosed with schwannoma located at the limbs in clinical and radiological evaluation. Tru-cut biopsy was performed before excision in the patients who were diagnosed with schwannoma located in the extremity in clinical and radiological evaluation. Afterwards, total excision was performed with microsurgery methods. Demographic data, complications of true cut biopsy, treat...

Randall A Bloch , Ran Vijai Singh, MD, Marc L Silverberg, MD, Joseph K Han, MD and Kent K Lam, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 06, 2020

Solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) typically arise from the pleura and other thoracic locations but can also rarely affect the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses. This report describes the presentation, workup, and management of a patient with a sinonasal SFT with expansion into the intracranial fossa. We report on a 78-year-old male who presented with approximately 1 year of worsening nasal obstruction, difficulty sleeping, and loss of olfaction and gustation. Fiberoptic examination, CT, and MRI al...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 06, 2020

Globally, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in immeasurable disruptions in countries activities. Since the first reported case in December 2019, an estimated 140,000 people have died, with a case fatality rate of about 3%. The increasing rate of new cases and the evolving epidemiology of the COVID-19 virus means that the global health community is grappling to understand the current situation. The aim of this paper is to determine if the Bacilli Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccine used to protect aga...

Longstanding Eruptive Keratoacanthoma of the Neck Arising From a Tattoo

Misbah Yehya, DO, Arnaud Batchou, OMS and Thomas Simpson, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 10, 2020

Keratoacanthoma (KA) is a cutaneous neoplasm arising from follicular hair cells on sun exposed regions of the skin, particularly the head and neck. Their pathology remains controversial thus distinguishing between KA and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) has proven to be difficult over the years. Some expert pathologists consider KA a precursor to SCC, while others define it as a well-differentiated variant of SCC or an abortive malignancy with low potential of progression to a full invasive squamou...

Long-term Maintenance HP Acthar® Therapy for the Treatment of Refractory Idiopathic Membranous Nephropathy

Anushka Chadha, MD and Inderpal Chadha, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 11, 2020

Current first-line treatments for idiopathic membranous nephropathy often insufficiently reduce proteinuria and creatinine. Additional treatments options are needed for these refractory cases. Herein, we describe the case of a 68-yearold white male with worsening dyspnea and peripheral lower extremity edema with biopsy-proven membranous nephropathy, without any identifiable secondary causes of the disease. He failed to achieve partial or complete remission after initial therapy of enalapril, ato...
