Severe Malaria with Acute Kidney Injury and Post-Dialysis Hypocalcaemia and Hypertension: A Case Report of a Young Patient Managed in a Resource Limited Setting

Wafula Innocent, MBChB

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 29, 2021

Malaria is a leading cause of paediatric morbidity and mortality in Africa. Plasmodium falciparum species is commonly associated with severe complications of malaria including severe anaemia, prostration, altered consciousness, hypoglycaemia, pulmonary oedema, haemoglobinuria, and acute kidney injury (AKI). In patients with these complications, the cornerstone of treatment is prompt administration of antimalarials and the provision of appropriate supportive care. AKI is an established independen...

Case of Endoscopic Surgical Treatment of Thoracic Arachnoid Cyst

Roman Khalepa and Yuliy Kubetskiy

Article Type: Case Presentation | First Published: October 23, 2021

Spinal arachnoid cysts are the benign intradural extramedullary lesions that usually occur at the thoracic region. Such cysts can cause compression of spinal cord with symptoms of myelopathy. The diagnosis is clinical and radiological with the use of MRI. Nowadays there are some surgical options to eliminate compression of spinal cord: laminectomy and total removal of the arachnoid cyst, puncture aspiration, cyst fenestration, cystoperitoneal shunting. Each of these options can be used in arachn...

Validation Study: Evaluating Phenotypic Expression of Bitter Taste Receptors

Mohamed A Taha, MD, Colin J Shortess, BS, Mackenzie J Noonan, BS, C Chambliss Harrod, MD, Mary JR Barham, Rowda R Mousa, PE and Henry P Barham, MD

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 25, 2021

Bitter taste receptors (T2Rs) have shown to play a role in sinonasal innate immunity against SARS-CoV-2. A taste strip test kit has been used in prior COVID-19 studies (prototype version), and has shown significant results. This study addresses the validity of this test kit for assessing the genotype/phenotype correlation of T2R expression, with emphasis on the importance of performing phenotypic testing, rather than genotype testing, as a measure for T2R function as a part of innate immunity ag...

An Accuracy-Based Approach to the Microbiologic Diagnosis of Pulmonary Infection

John Ferguson, MD, MPH, Cyprien Jungels, DO and Michael Gailey, DO

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: October 22, 2021

Over six million cases of pneumonia are diagnosed annually in the United States. Clinicians commonly experience uncertainty regarding the accuracy of laboratory tests as these values are not well-published or easily accessible. Performance data of diagnostic tests are needed to assist clinicians in procuring a microbiologic diagnosis. We undertook a literature search to assess the accuracy of diagnostic tests for pneumonia, identified through a search of MEDLINE-indexed journals. Sensitivity and...

Dermoscopic Findings of Pilotropic Mycosis Fungoid: A Rare Variant

Benahmed Jihane, Znati, Meziane, Ismaili, Benzekri and Senouci

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 23, 2021

Pilotropic mycosis fungoid (PMF) is a rare variant of mycosis fungoides (MF) with distinctive clinicopathological features, accounting for 1 to 5%. It is characterized by a broad spectrum of clinical features and has a more aggressive clinical course than conventional MF. At the onset of its progression, pilotropic mycosis fongoides is sometimes difficult to distinguish from classical mycosis fongoides with follicular involvement. PMF diagnosis is challenging and can mimick other conditions. Der...

A Review of the Sub-Classification of Lymph Node Biopsies Reported as Reactive Lymphadenitis at Kenyatta National Hospital, Kenya

Chepkorir Cynthia Chemonges, Nyagol Joshua, Massimo Granai, Stefano Lazzi, Joseph Rugumu Ndungu and Lorenzo Leoncini

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: October 25, 2021

Lymphadenopathy is common in both adult and paediatric patients in Kenya. It has a broad differential diagnosis, the most common being non-specific reactive lymphoid hyperplasia. Prevalence and morbidity of malignancies in early stages, such as micro lymphoma in reactive lymphadenitis remains poorly investigated. This study evaluated the histopathologic patterns of lymph node biopsies reported as reactive lymphadenitis at Kenyatta National Hospital between 2013-2019. Formalin fixed paraffin embe...
