Far Eastern Scarlet-Like Fever is a Special Clinical and Epidemic Manifestation of Infection in Russia.

Pathogens 2020 Jun 2;9(6). Epub 2020 Jun 2.

Somov Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology, Ministry of Science and Higher Education, 690087 Vladivostok, Russia.

Pseudotuberculosis in humans until the 1950s was found in different countries of the world as a rare sporadic disease that occurred in the form of acute appendicitis and mesenteric lymphadenitis. In Russia and Japan, the () infection often causes outbreaks of the disease with serious systemic inflammatory symptoms, and this variant of the disease has been known since 1959 as Far Eastern Scarlet-like Fever (FESLF). Russian researchers have proven that the FESLF pathogen is associated with a concrete clonal line of characterized by a specific plasmid profile (pVM82, pYV 48 MDa), sequence (2ST) and gene allele (1st allele).

Unilateral inguinal lymphadenitis caused by Yersinia pseudotuberculosis. A case report.

J Infect Chemother 2020 Jul 5;26(7):762-764. Epub 2020 May 5.

Department of Laboratory Medicine, Hyogo Prefectural Kakogawa Medical Center, Kakogawa, Japan.

Acute inguinal lymphadenitis is usually caused by lower extremity infection and sexually transmitted diseases, such as chancroid, lymphogranuloma venereum, genital herpes, or syphilis. Yersinia pseudotuberculosis is a non-spore forming, pleomorphic, non-lactose fermenting Gram negative bacillus and a member of the family Enterobacteriaceae, which is associated with diarrheal diseases. It also causes mesenteric lymphadenitis at the terminal ileum, which can be clinically indistinguishable from acute appendicitis (pseudoappendicitis). Read More

Hypercalcemia as a rare presentation of angioimmunoblastic T cell lymphoma: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2018 Apr 20;12(1):101. Epub 2018 Apr 20.

Department of Internal Medicine, Wayne State University School of Medicine, Rochester Hills, MI, USA.

Background: Angioimmunoblastic T cell lymphoma is a rare malignancy, accounting for only 2% of all non-Hodgkin lymphomas, first described in the 1970s and subsequently accepted as a distinct entity in the current World Health Organization classification. Due to the paucity of this disease, there is still no identifiable etiology, no consistent risk factors, and the pathogenesis remains unclear.

Case Presentation: An 83-year-old Caucasian man presented to an emergency department with palpitations and was found to have atrial fibrillation. Read More

Mesenteric lymphadenitis as a presenting feature of Whipple's disease.

IDCases 2017 15;9:50-52. Epub 2017 Jun 15.

Yale University, School of Medicine, Yale-Waterbury Residency Program (Department of Internal Medicine), United States.

Detecting Whipple's disease, a "great imitator", requires a high index of suspicion so that antimicrobial treatment can be initiated in a timely manner; a missed diagnosis can be fatal. Although an uncommon cause, Whipple's disease must be considered in adults with mesenteric lymphadenitis. We report the case of a 39-year-old African American man who presented with chronic joint pain, chronic weight loss, and acute onset epigastric pain. Read More

Acute Nonspecific Mesenteric Lymphadenitis: More Than "No Need for Surgery".

Biomed Res Int 2017 2;2017:9784565. Epub 2017 Feb 2.

Pediatric Emergency Department, Foundation IRCCS Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, Milan, Italy; Pediatric Unit, Università degli Studi di Milano, Foundation IRCCS Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, Milan, Italy.

Acute nonspecific, or primary, mesenteric lymphadenitis is a self-limiting inflammatory condition affecting the mesenteric lymph nodes, whose presentation mimics appendicitis or intussusception. It typically occurs in children, adolescents, and young adults. White blood count and C-reactive protein are of limited usefulness in distinguishing between patients with and without mesenteric lymphadenitis. Read More
