[Report of a case of isolated tuberculous arthritis of the knee: a difficult diagnosis in adolescents].

Pan Afr Med J 2020 6;37:225. Epub 2020 Nov 6.

Service de Pneumologie de l´Hôpital Militaire Avicenne Marrakech, Marrakech, Maroc.

Tuberculosis is a major global public health problem. Osteoarticular tuberculosis is very rare. In half of the cases it affects the vertebrae. Symptoms are insidious over a prolonged period and isolation of the pathogen is difficult, mostly leading to difficult and delayed diagnosis. We here report a new case of tuberculous arthritis of the knee in a teenager in whom the mean time between symtom onset and definitive diagnosis based on the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis genome by Xpert MTB/RIF test was eight months. This study emphasizes the importance of bacteriological sampling and diagnostic methods by molecular assay in early and definitive diagnosis of tuberculous arthritis.

Mycobacterium fortuitum infection associated with achalasia.

Tunis Med 2018 May;96(5):311-313

The association achalasia and non tuberculous Mycobacteria lung infection is described in the literature. Most of the time Mycobacterium Fortuitum is responsible of aspiration pneumonia that didn't respond to usual antibiotic therapy. We report a new case about a 15 year-old woman with Allgrove's syndrome history. The chest imaging showed a right pulmonary condensation and the diagnosis was bacteriological. Mycobacterium Fortuitum resistant to Rifampicin, isoniazid, Pyrazinamide and ethamabutol was isolated. She was treated by cotrimoxazole, ciprofloxacin and clarithromycin for 12 months, with a good clinical, radiological and bacteriological evolution. With the purpose to prevent the relapse the patient was treated by cardiomyotomy.

Mycobacterium Fortuitum infection associated with achalasia.

Tunis Med 2018 Mar;96(3):227-229

The association between achalasia and no tuberculosis mycobacterial   lung infection is well described in the literature. MycobactériumFortuitum is often responsible, and the clinical's presentation   is an aspiration pneumonia resistant to usual antibiotic therapy. We report the case of a 15 year-old patient with the history of Allgrove syndrome. The chest imaging showed right lung congestion; the diagnosis was bacteriological and MycobactériumFortuitum resistant to rifampicin, isoniazid, pyrazinamide and ethambutol was isolated. The patient was treated by the association cotrimoxazole, ciprofloxacin and clarithromycin for 12 months and the clinical, radiological and bacteriological outcomes were favorable. To prevent the recurrence the patient benefited from a cardiomyotomy.

Primary leiomyoma of the lung: an exceptional localization.

Asian Cardiovasc Thorac Ann 2016 May 3;24(4):393-6. Epub 2016 Mar 3.

Respiratory Department, Military Hospital Avicenne, Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy Mohamed VI, Caddy Ayyad University, Marrakech, Morocco.

Leiomyoma is a benign smooth muscle tumor usually encountered in the uterus. Primary pulmonary localization is extremely rare in adults and children. However, it must be included in the differential diagnosis of any nodular lung lesion. Its treatment is surgical, with good long-term results. Here, we report a case of leiomyoma of lung parenchyma diagnosed in a 26-year-old man.

Lymph nodes tuberculosis: a retrospective study on clinical and therapeutic features.

Pan Afr Med J 2015 23;20:65. Epub 2015 Jan 23.

ENT Unit, Mohammed V Military Hospital, Rabat, Morocco.

Lymph nodes tuberculosis represents 30 percent of extra pulmonary tuberculosis in Morocco. We report here the experience of the pulmonology unit of the Avicenne Military Hospital in Marrakech for a period of 4 years. Our study interested 30 patients (15 males and 15 females) with an average age of 29 years old (10 to 62 years old). Tuberculosis has interested a single site in 28 patients, the other two patients had multiple but unilateral involvement. For the single sites, locations were jugulo-carotidian (20 patients), supra-calvicular (2 patients), axillary (2 patients), sub-mandibular (2 patients), spinal (2 patients) and mediastinal (2 patients). For the multiple locations, the involvement was jugulo-carotidian, sub-mandibular, spinal and sub-clavicular for one patient; and jugulo-carotidian and sub-clavicular for the other. Diagnosis was made by surgical biopsy and histology for all the patients. A six-month anti-tuberculous treatment was given afterward, with relapses in two patients.

Giant viable hydatid cyst of the lung revealed by hiccups.

Pan Afr Med J 2012 13;13:48. Epub 2012 Nov 13.

Department of pulmonology, Avicenna Military Hospital, Marrakech, Morocco.

Hydatid cystic disease is still a significant clinical problem in endemic countries. Hydatid cysts are usually located in the liver and lung. The resulting large cysts in the lung are a special clinical entity called giant hydatid cysts. We present a case of this rare entity: An 18-year-old woman presented with three month history of hiccups and progressive dyspnea. Chest X-ray revealed a very large homogenous opacity of the left lung. A diagnosis of giant hydatid cyst was made intra operatively; the patient was treated surgically using cystotomy and capitonnage without post-operative complications. This report illustrates that the hydatid cyst of the lung may occasionally present with signs of mediastinal compression.

Left laterotracheal retrosternal goiter with left upper limb ischemia.

Asian Cardiovasc Thorac Ann 2010 Dec;18(6):579-80

Avicenne Military Hospital Marrakech, Morocco.

We describe a rare case of retrosternal goiter that developed on the left side of the trachea, squeezing between the trachea and the left supra-aortic vessels, and causing signs of compression and acute left upper limb ischemia in a 35-year-old woman. Her symptoms disappeared after an emergency total thyroidectomy was performed.
