Primary focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis (pFSGS) frequently recurs after transplantation and is associated with a poor prognosis. We describe here the successful kidney graft reuse in an adult recipient, eight months after early pFSGS recurrence resistant to all available therapeutics. Patient 1, a 23-year-old man, followed for kidney failure secondary to pFSGS, was first transplanted in 2018 with a deceased donor graft. Read More

Oncogenic RAS variants lead to constitutive overactivation and increased signal transduction into downstream pathways. They are found as somatic driver events in various types of human cancer. In a somatic mosaic status, the same RAS variants have been associated with a wide spectrum of focal or segmental tissue dysplasia and overgrowth including various types of congenital nevi, vascular malformations, and other changes (mosaic RASopathies).

Meckel diverticulum (MD) is the most common congenital anomaly of the intestines, with an incidence of 2% of the general population.

We report three pediatric cases with complicated MD: one female presented with small-bowel obstruction, one male with peritonitis, and one female with severe iron-deficiency anemia, without gross gastrointestinal bleeding nor any ectopic gastric mucosa.

An asymptomatic 75-year-old woman was identified with a 40-mm-sized, round-shaped lesion beside the pulmonary artery on computed tomography (CT). Coronary angiography showed a coronary artery fistula (CAF) with an aneurysm branching from the left anterior descending artery toward the pulmonary artery. The CAF aneurysm (CAFA) was resected and coronary artery bypass graft surgery using the left internal thoracic artery was performed successfully. Read More

The atypical clinical, colonoscopic manifestations often confuse clinicians, leading to misdiagnosis and delays in the treatment.Case Presentation: Herein, we reported on a single case of a patient with gastrointestinal symptoms.
