Pulmonary Tuberculosis With Saddle Pulmonary Embolism and Deep Vein Thrombosis: A Rare Case Report.

Cureus 2021 Jun 27;13(6):e15958. Epub 2021 Jun 27.

Internal Medicine Department, Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha, QAT.

Pulmonary tuberculosis is a common endemic disease in developing countries but its thrombogenic tendency is not well-studied and established yet. Pulmonary embolism is rarely reported in Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection. There are reports stating the relation of pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep vein thrombosis (DVT) with a severe infection of tuberculosis but no data is available to establish a mutual association between pulmonary tuberculosis and pulmonary thromboembolism. Herein, we report the case of a 51-year-old male who presented with a one-month history of productive cough, shortness of breath, and fever associated with chills and night sweating. He reported an 8 kg weight loss in the last month. He was found to have pulmonary tuberculosis. On further investigations for leg swelling and tachycardia. Deep vein thrombosis and sub-massive saddle bilateral pulmonary embolism were diagnosed, which was treated with thrombolysis therapy (alteplase). He responded well to initial therapy and was discharged on anticoagulation with anti-tuberculous therapy (ATT).

Iron Deficiency Anemia-Induced Lymphocytopenia in a Young Female.

Case Rep Oncol 2020 May-Aug;13(2):793-797. Epub 2020 Jul 8.

Department of Medical Oncology, National Center for Cancer Care and Research, Doha, Qatar.

Iron deficiency anemia is the most common type of anemia, and it occurs when the human body does not have enough of the mineral iron (https://www.healthline.com/health/iron-deficiency-anemia#diagnosis). Iron deficiency anemia is caused by blood loss, insufficient dietary intake, or poor absorption of iron from food. Sources of blood loss can include heavy periods, childbirth, uterine fibroids, stomach ulcers, colon cancer, and urinary tract bleeding (https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health-topics/iron-deficiency-anemia). Poor absorption of iron from food may occur as a result of an intestinal disorder such as inflammatory bowel disease or celiac disease, or surgery such as a gastric bypass (https://www.who.int/nutrition/topics/ida/en/). Little is known about the association between iron deficiency anemia and lymphocytopenia. Here, we report on a 17-year-old female who presented with iron deficiency anemia and was found to have lymphopenia. She recovered after having received intravenous iron therapy.
