Comparative pathophysiology and management of protein-losing enteropathy.

J Vet Intern Med 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Minnesota, St. Paul, Minnesota.

Protein-losing enteropathy, or PLE, is not a disease but a syndrome that develops in numerous disease states of differing etiologies and often involving the lymphatic system, such as lymphangiectasia and lymphangitis in dogs. The pathophysiology of lymphatic disease is incompletely understood, and the disease is challenging to manage. Understanding of PLE mechanisms requires knowledge of lymphatic system structure and function, which are reviewed here. Read More

Primary lymphangiectasia of the gastrointestinal tract.

Ter Arkh 2018 Apr;90(3):96-98

FSBEI HE "Dagestan State Medical University" Ministry of Health, Makhachkala, Russia.

Intestinal lymphangiectasia is a very rare pathology, characterized by the presence of enlarged lymphatic vessels in all layers of the intestinal wall and in the mesentery. As a result, "lymphatic lakes" are formed, through which lymph exudates into the lumen of the intestine. The main manifestation is hypoproteinemic edema. Read More

CHAPLE syndrome uncovers the primary role of complement in a familial form of Waldmann's disease.

Authors:
Ahmet Ozen

Immunol Rev 2019 Jan;287(1):20-32

Division of Allergy and Immunology, Marmara University School of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.

Primary intestinal lymphangiectasia (PIL) or Waldmann's disease was described in 1961 as an important cause of protein-losing enteropathy (PLE). PIL can be the sole finding in rare individuals or occur as part of a multisystemic genetic syndrome. Although genetic etiologies of many lymphatic dysplasia syndromes associated with PIL have been identified, the pathogenesis of isolated PIL (with no associated syndromic features) remains unknown.

An additional case of Hennekam lymphangiectasia-lymphedema syndrome caused by loss-of-function mutation in ADAMTS3.

Am J Med Genet A 2018 Dec 18;176(12):2858-2861. Epub 2018 Nov 18.

Ambry Genetics, Aliso Viejo, California, USA.

Hennekam lymphangiectasia-lymphedema syndrome (HKLLS) is a genetically heterogeneous lymphatic dysplasia with characteristic of facial dysmorphism, neurocognitive impairments, and abnormalities of the pericardium, intestinal tract, and extremities. It is an autosomal recessive condition caused by biallelic mutations in CCBE1 (collagen- and calcium-binding epidermal growth factor domain-containing protein 1) (HKLLS1; OMIM 235510) or FAT4 (HKLLS2; OMIM 616006). CCBE1 acts via ADAMTS3 (a disintegrin and metalloprotease with thrombospondin motifs-3 protease) to enhance vascular endothelial growth factor C signaling. Read More

Núcleo de Ensino, Pesquisa e Assistência em Filariose (NEPAF), Hospital das Clínicas, Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, Recife, PE, Brazil.

Background: In endemic areas, lymphangiectasia is the fundamental alteration to live adult worms which, in adult males, are usually found in the lymphatic vessels of the spermatic cord; accordingly, hydrocele/filaricele is the most common clinical manifestation of bancroftian filariasis. The pathogenic role of the lymphatic endothelial cells (LECs) and the status of mesothelial cells (MCs) samples of the parietal layer (PL) of the tunica vaginalis testis were examined.

Methods: The PL of thirty-two patients, excised for different reasons, was examined by histology and immunohistochemistry using the D2-40 monoclonal antibody for identification of LECs and CK-7 antibody for recognition of mesothelial cells (MCs). Read More

Removal of Peritnoeo-venous-atrial shunt thrombus without cardiopulmonary bypass.

Asian Cardiovasc Thorac Ann 2018 Jun 7;26(5):387-389. Epub 2018 May 7.

5 Department of Interventional Radiology, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, Nedlands, Australia.

Thrombus formation is not uncommon in longstanding intracardiac catheters, but formation of a thrombus at the tip of a Peritnoeo-venous-atrial shunt, causing obstruction of the tricuspid valve, is a rare complication and frequently unrecognized. A large intracardiac thrombus causing valve obstruction requires surgical removal with the support of cardiopulmonary bypass which is associated with significant morbidity. We successfully removed a thrombus attached to the tip of peritoneovenous shunt without cardiopulmonary bypass in a 25-year-old man. Read More

Case report of primary intestinal lymphangiectasia diagnosed in an octogenarian by ileal intubation and by push enteroscopy after missed diagnosis by standard colonoscopy and EGD.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Jan;97(3):e9649

Department of Pathology, William Beaumont Hospital.

Rationale: Primary intestinal lymphangiectasia (PIL) is a rare, presumably congenital lesion that is usually diagnosed in patients < 3 years old, is rarely first diagnosed in adulthood, and when first diagnosed in adulthood typically presents with symptoms for many years. Although PIL is often identified by endoscopic abnormalities, it must be emphasized that the jejunoileum/distal duodenum must be intubated for diagnosis because the lesions are present in these regions. This work demonstrates that 1)-PIL can occur in an octogenarian; 2)-shows that the characteristic endoscopic findings are not found at colonoscopy without terminal ileal intubation; and 3)-may be missed at standard EGD without distal duodenal intubation.

Anterior segment and external ocular disorders associated with HIV infections in the era of HAART in Chiang Mai University Hospital, a prospective descriptive cross sectional study.

PLoS One 2018 21;13(2):e0193161. Epub 2018 Feb 21.

Ophthalmology department, Chiang Mai University Hospital, Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) causes impairment to the human immune system which leads to immunocompromised conditions, including ocular complications. Several important HIV-associated disorders may involve the anterior segment, ocular surface, and adnexae organ such as dry eye, blepharitis which reduce quality of life of patients. In present, potent antiretroviral therapies HAART (highly active antiretroviral therapy) has improved the length and quality of life which may lead to an increased prevalence of anterior segment ocular disorders.

Acute small intestinal inflammation results in persistent lymphatic alterations.

Am J Physiol Gastrointest Liver Physiol 2018 03 14;314(3):G408-G417. Epub 2017 Dec 14.

Inflammation Research Network and Smooth Muscle Research Group, Snyder Institute for Chronic Diseases, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary , Calgary, Alberta , Canada.

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has a complex pathophysiology with limited treatments. Structural and functional changes in the intestinal lymphatic system have been associated with the disease, with increased risk of IBD occurrence linked to a history of acute intestinal injury. To examine the potential role of the lymphatic system in inflammation recurrence, we evaluated morphological and functional changes in mouse mucosal and mesenteric lymphatic vessels, and within the mesenteric lymph nodes during acute ileitis caused by a 7-day treatment with dextran sodium sulfate (DSS).
