Atypical Manifestations of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 Infection in Children: A Review.

Curr Pediatr Rev 2021 04 6. Epub 2021 Apr 6.

Department of Paediatrics, Patras Medical School, Rion 26504. Greece.

Background: In December 2019, a local outbreak of pneumonia presented in Wuhan (China), and quickly identified to be caused by a novel coronavirus, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 was named COVID-19 and was soon declared as pandemic because of the millions of infections and thousands of deaths worldwide. Children infected with SARS-CoV-2 usually develop asymptomatic or mild disease compared to adults. Read More

The emergence of targetable MEKanisms in sporadic lymphatic disorders.

EMBO Mol Med 2020 10 18;12(10):e12822. Epub 2020 Sep 18.

Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine, University of Cincinnati Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH, USA.

Sporadic lymphatic diseases are orphans among orphans in the medical community, a diverse collection of disorders at the intersection of cardiac, gastrointestinal, pulmonary, dermatologic, and oncologic disease that receives only passing attention in medical school and that no subspecialty in medicine fully embraces as its own. They often present in a confusing and illusive manner, with a fractured bone, expectoration of blood or a branching airway cast, a swollen limb or a collection of chylous material; protean manifestations that can challenge even the most expert diagnostician. Yet many of these acquired disorders have been discovered to have a targetable genetic basis, and as the case report of Foster et al (2020) demonstrates, the sedulous clinician-patient dyad can be rewarded with an almost miraculous result when the molecular pathogenesis of the disease is pursued and an exquisitely targeted therapy is administered.

Extrapulmonary manifestations of COVID-19.

Nat Med 2020 07 10;26(7):1017-1032. Epub 2020 Jul 10.

Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center, New York, NY, USA.

Although COVID-19 is most well known for causing substantial respiratory pathology, it can also result in several extrapulmonary manifestations. These conditions include thrombotic complications, myocardial dysfunction and arrhythmia, acute coronary syndromes, acute kidney injury, gastrointestinal symptoms, hepatocellular injury, hyperglycemia and ketosis, neurologic illnesses, ocular symptoms, and dermatologic complications. Given that ACE2, the entry receptor for the causative coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, is expressed in multiple extrapulmonary tissues, direct viral tissue damage is a plausible mechanism of injury.

Dermatologic manifestations of infective endocarditis.

An Bras Dermatol 2016 Sep-Oct;91(5 suppl 1):92-94

Universidade do Oeste Paulista (UNOESTE) - Presidente Prudente (SP), Brazil.

Despite advances in diagnosis and treatment, infective endocarditis still shows considerable morbidity and mortality rates. The dermatological examination in patients with suspected infective endocarditis may prove very useful, as it might reveal suggestive abnormalities of this disease, such as Osler's nodes and Janeway lesions. Osler's nodes are painful, purple nodular lesions, usually found on the tips of fingers and toes. Read More

Lyme disease: a rigorous review of diagnostic criteria and treatment.

J Autoimmun 2015 Feb 16;57:82-115. Epub 2014 Oct 16.

Division of Rheumatology, Allergy and Clinical Immunology, University of California at Davis, Davis, CA 95616, USA. Electronic address:

Lyme disease was originally identified in Lyme, Connecticut, based upon an unusual cluster of what appeared to be patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. It was subsequently identified as a new clinical entity originally called Lyme arthritis based on the observation that arthritis was a major clinical feature. However, Lyme arthritis is now called Lyme disease based upon the understanding that the clinical features include not only arthritis, but also potential cardiac, dermatologic and neurologic findings.

Dermatologic manifestations and neuropathic symptoms in women with Fabry disease.

Acta Biomed 2014 May 9;85(1):81-4. Epub 2014 May 9.

Post-Graduate School of Neurology, University of Parma.

Fabry disease (angiokeratoma corporis diffusum universale) is a rare, progressive, X-linked lysosomal storage disease. Deficiency of the α-galactosidase A (α-gal A) enzyme leads to accumulation of neutral glycosphingolipids within vascular endothelial lysosomes of various organs, including skin, kidneys, heart, and brain (1). We herein describe the case of a 30-year-old female presenting two classic signs of Fabry disease, angiokeratomas and episodic acroparesthesias, in the absence of other clinical manifestations.

Neurological and ocular fascioliasis in humans.

Adv Parasitol 2014 ;84:27-149

Departamento de Parasitologia, Facultad de Farmacia, Universidad de Valencia, Valencia, Spain.

Fascioliasis is a food-borne parasitic disease caused by the trematode species Fasciola hepatica, distributed worldwide, and Fasciola gigantica, restricted to given regions of Africa and Asia. This disease in humans shows an increasing importance, which relies on its recent widespread emergence related to climate and global changes and also on its pathogenicity in the invasive, biliary, and advanced chronic phases in the human endemic areas, mainly of developing countries. In spite of the large neurological affection capacity of Fasciola, this important pathogenic aspect of the disease has been pronouncedly overlooked in the past decades and has not even appear within the numerous reviews on the parasitic diseases of the central nervous system.
