J Clin Neurosci 2019 Apr 4. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Westmead Hospital, University of Sydney, Australia.

Several authors have reported advantages of the purely endoscopic (PE) approach over traditional purely microscopic (PM) techniques for many sinus and anterior skull base procedures. However, in pituitary surgery, the PE approach carries a number of limitations. Experienced microscopically-trained neurosurgeons are required to master the endoscopic technique which has a steep learning curve due to its one-handed nature and optically-distorted 2-dimensional view.

Louse-borne relapsing fever (Borrelia recurrentis infection).

Authors:
David A Warrell

Epidemiol Infect 2019 Jan;147:e106

Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine,University of Oxford,Oxford,UK.

Louse-borne relapsing fever (LBRF) is an epidemic disease with a fascinating history from Hippocrates' times, through the 6th century 'Yellow Plague', to epidemics in Ireland, Scotland and England in the 19th century and two large Afro-Middle Eastern pandemics in the 20th century. An endemic focus persists in Ethiopia and adjacent territories in the Horn of Africa. Since 2015, awareness of LBRF in Europe, as a re-emerging disease, has been increased dramatically by the discovery of this infection in dozens of refugees arriving from Africa. Read More

RASGRP2 gene variations associated with platelet dysfunction and bleeding.

Platelets 2019 8;30(4):535-539. Epub 2019 Mar 8.

a Servicio de Hematología y Oncología Médica, Hospital Universitario Morales Meseguer, Centro Regional de Hemodonación , Universidad de Murcia , Murcia , Spain.

This manuscript reviews pathogenic variants in RASGRP2, which are the cause of a relatively new autosomal recessive and nonsyndromic inherited platelet function disorder, referred to as platelet-type bleeding disorder-18 (BDPLT18)(OMIM:615888). To date, 18 unrelated BDPLT18 pedigrees have been reported, harboring 19 different homozygous or compound heterozygous RASGRP2 variants. Patients with this disease present with lifelong moderate to severe bleeding, with epistaxis as the most common and relevant bleeding symptom. Read More

ENT Clinic, S.M. alle Scotte University Hospital of Siena, Siena, Italy.

The characteristics of extra-nasopharyngeal angiofibromas tend to be different from angiofibromas of the nasopharynx according to patient gender, patient age, prevalence, affected site, pathogenesis, and clinical and epidemiological features. We report a case of an extra-nasopharyngeal angiofibroma in a 28-year-old man referred to the ENT Clinic for right-sided epistaxis, airflow impairment and nasal swelling. The right nostril was completely occluded works by a reddish-yellow mass that bled easily. Read More

Diagnosis and management of typical, newly diagnosed primary immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) of childhood.

Paediatr Child Health 2019 Feb 15;24(1):54-55. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Canadian Paediatric Society, Acute Care Committee, Ottawa, Ontario.

This practice point applies to children aged 90 days through 17 years who have typical, newly diagnosed primary immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). Current recommendations on management and information from recent studies are summarized with the goal of decreasing variable practice among providers and improving patient-centred care. Options for initially managing young patients with ITP who experience bruising, petechiae, or occasional mild epistaxis not interfering with daily living include observation without pharmacotherapy as a first-line option.
