Pleural anthracosis presenting with massive effusion: a rare entity.

Respirol Case Rep 2019 Feb 28;7(2):e00390. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Respiratory Department Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.

Pleural anthracosis is rare and, in most cases, is diagnosed incidentally or at autopsy. We report a 67-year-old man with pleural anthracosis. He was initially referred for possible tuberculous pleural effusion and had recurrent admissions for symptomatic pleural effusion, which increased with each subsequent episode. Read More

Urinary schistosomiasis: report of case diagnosed in bladder biopsy.

BMC Clin Pathol 2018 28;18:13. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Department of Pathology, Military General Hospital Mohammed V, Mohammed V- Souissi University, Hay Riad, 10000 Rabat, Morocco.

Background: Urinary schistosomiasis is a common parasitic disease in endemic countries.

Case Presentation: We report the case of a patient who was on a working trip to Mauritania. This parasitosis, suspected in the presence of hematuria and the notion of stay in an endemic zone, was confirmed by the presence of Schistosoma heamatobium eggs during the histological examination of the bladder biopsy performed after cystoscopy, highlighting a bilharzial granuloma and of course, the diagnosis was confirmed by the presence of eggs during the direct examination of the freshly collected urine.

Outcomes of pterygium surgery-glue versus autologous blood versus sutures for graft fixation-an analysis.

Oman J Ophthalmol 2018 Sep-Dec;11(3):227-231

Department of Cornea, The Eye Foundation Hospital, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India.

Aim: The aim of this study is to compare the surgical outcomes of pterygium excision with conjunctival autograft using sutures, fibrin glue (tisseel), and autologous blood for the management of primary pterygium.

An explant technique for high-resolution imaging and manipulation of mycobacterial granulomas.

Nat Methods 2018 Dec 30;15(12):1098-1107. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, NC, USA.

A central and critical structure in tuberculosis, the mycobacterial granuloma consists of highly organized immune cells, including macrophages that drive granuloma formation through a characteristic epithelioid transformation. Difficulties in imaging within intact animals and caveats associated with in vitro assembly models have severely limited the study and experimental manipulation of mature granulomas. Here we describe a new ex vivo culture technique, wherein mature, fully organized zebrafish granulomas are microdissected and maintained in three-dimensional (3D) culture. Read More

Mycobacterial Infection is Promoted by Neutral Sphingomyelinase 2 Regulating a Signaling Cascade Leading to Activation of β1-Integrin.

Cell Physiol Biochem 2018 Nov 30;51(4):1815-1829. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Department of Molecular Biology, University of Duisburg-Essen, Essen,

Background/aims: Mycobacteria-induced diseases, especially tuberculosis, cause more than 1 million deaths each year, which is higher than any other single bacterial pathogen. Neutral sphingomyelinase 2 (Nsm2) has been implied in many physiological processes and diseases, but the role of Nsm2 in pathogen-host interactions and mycobacterial infections has barely been studied.

Methods: We investigated the role of the Nsm2/ceramide system in systemic infection of mice and murine macrophages with Mycobacterium bovis Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) as a model for mycobacterial infection. Read More

Aluminum granuloma in a child secondary to DTaP-IPV vaccination: A case report.

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 Nov 28. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Department of Dermatology, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, Oregon.

Reports detailing the acute formation of aluminum granulomas, which can cause persistent, intensely pruritic nodules secondary to the administration of aluminum-containing vaccines, are infrequently described in medical literature. To our knowledge, this is the first report describing the development of an aluminum granuloma causing a persistent, pruritic nodule at the injection site following the administration of the DTaP-IPV vaccine. We present the case of a 6-year-old girl who developed a severely pruritic subcutaneous nodule on her anterior right thigh at the injection site three weeks after the administration of the aluminum-containing DTaP-IPV (Kinrix) vaccine.

Inflammatory granulomatous dermatitides include cutaneous sarcoidosis, necrobiosis lipoidica, granuloma annulare, and reactive granulomatous dermatitis. The etiopathogenesis of these disorders is not well understood; but the T helper 1 response mediated by interferon-gamma, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and interleukin (IL) 1, 2, and 6 and the T helper 17 response mediated by IL-17 play a role. These inflammatory granulomatous disorders often have cutaneous manifestations in addition to extracutaneous manifestations or associations with systemic diseases. Read More

Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatosis characterized by the formation of epithelioid and giant cell granulomas without caseous necrosis. To make the diagnosis, it is necessary to prove systemic granulomatosis involving at least two organs; but in practice, a combination of clinical, paraclinical and histologic findings is used. It affects predominantly women with a bimodal age distribution: 25-29 years and 65-69 years. Read More

Infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) is characterized by an inflammatory response resulting in the formation of granulomas. These tight aggregates of immune cells play an important role in bacterial containment and in the eventual outcome of infection. Monocytes are a major component of the early immune response to Mtb and contribute to the cellular matrix of the newly forming granuloma. Read More

Filler Migration and Granuloma Formation After Gluteal Augmentation with Free-silicone Injections.

Cureus 2018 Sep 13;10(9):e3294. Epub 2018 Sep 13.

Diagnostic Radiology, Florida Hospital-Orlando, Orlando, USA.

Gluteal augmentation may be performed using a variety of techniques, including implant-based, autologous fat grafting, local flaps, impermanent filler injection, or, as in this case, by way of permanent filler injection with free-silicone. Of these, free-silicone injections carry one of the highest complication rates, specifically regarding migration of the filler material from the native injection site and induction of painful reactive soft tissue changes at the new filler location. A radiologist providing this diagnosis may assist the clinician, who often cannot obtain a history of illicit silicone injection for gluteal augmentation unless the suspicion is raised. Read More

Multidisciplinary rehabilitation of eosinophilic granuloma with bone graft surgery and a modified implant-supported hybrid prosthesis: A case report with a 6-year follow-up.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Faculty of Dentistry, Gazi University, Ankara, Turkey.

Eosinophilic granuloma is the most common form of Langerhans cell histiocytosis and corresponds with bone lesions characterized by pain, rapid growth, and high tendency of recurrence after inadequate curettage. It is a rare disease that is difficult to diagnose clinically and radiographically because it mimics other odontogenic cysts and tumors. In this report, the reconstruction of an osseous defect with an iliac graft and a modified implant-supported hybrid prosthesis after surgical excision of an eosinophilic granuloma in the mandible of a 27-year-old male patient was described.
