Carnitine Palmitoyltransferase-II Deficiency: Case Presentation and Review of the Literature.

Rom J Intern Med 2021 Jun 12. Epub 2021 Jun 12.

Department of Internal Medicine, Mayo Clinic, 4500 San Pablo Rd S, Jacksonville, FL 32224.

Carnitine palmitoyltransferase-II deficiency, an autosomal recessive disorder, is the most common cause of recurrent rhabdomyolysis in adults. Recognition and avoidance of triggers, such as heavy exercise and stress, is key in prevention of further episodes; however, even with preventative measures, many patients will continue to experience periodic symptoms, including rhabdomyolysis. Avoidance of renal failure, correction of electrolyte disturbances and halting further muscle breakdown are the goals of treatment. Read More

Acute Gluteal Compartment Syndrome with Nonclassical Symptoms: A Case Report on an Easily Missed Diagnosis.

JBJS Case Connect 2021 Jun 11;11(2). Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation, Loyola University Medical Center, Stritch School of Medicine, Maywood, Illinois.

Case: A 34-year-old man presented to the emergency department with rhabdomyolysis, acute kidney injury, and pain in the gluteal region after falling asleep on his side after heroin and alcohol use. On examination, he had swollen gluteal compartment musculature; however, he tolerated full passive range of motion with minimal pain. Intercompartmental pressure measured >110 mm Hg; therefore, emergent fasciotomy of the gluteal compartment musculature was performed. Read More

Clin Pharmacol Ther 2021 Jun 11. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Department of Clinical Pharmacy, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, California, USA.

The association between the c.521T>C variant allele in SLCO1B1 (rs4149056) and simvastatin-induced myotoxicity was discovered over a decade ago; however, whether this relationship represents a class effect is still not fully known. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between rs4149056 genotype and statin-induced myotoxicity in patients taking atorvastatin and lovastatin. Read More

Successful diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary aspergillosis-related malignant catatonia using propofol and quetiapine: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 May;100(19):e25967

Department of Emergency Medicine, Sapporo Medical University Hospital, Sapporo-shi.

Introduction: Malignant catatonia (MC) is a movement disorder syndrome characterized by immobility, rigidity, and consciousness disorders that develops in association with mental and physical diseases. It is often fatal due to hyperthermia, rhabdomyolysis, and acute kidney injury. Its clinical symptoms are similar to those of another disorder, neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS), and it is often difficult to distinguish between the 2 disorders. Read More

A Case Report of Recurrent Hypokalemia During Pregnancies Associated With Nonaldosterone-Mediated Renal Potassium Loss.

Can J Kidney Health Dis 2021 28;8:20543581211017424. Epub 2021 May 28.

Medical University of South Carolina, College of Medicine, Charleston, SC, USA.

Rationale: Geller et al reported a rare mutation in the mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) resulting in constitutive MR activity. Progesterone, normally an MR antagonist, acts as a potent agonist with this mutation. Progesterone levels can increase 100-fold during pregnancy and thus lead to increased MR activity in this setting, resulting in hypertension (HTN) and hypokalemia during pregnancy and resolution of hypokalemia after delivery.

Ibrutinib does not prevent kidney fibrosis following acute and chronic injury.

Sci Rep 2021 Jun 7;11(1):11985. Epub 2021 Jun 7.

UMR 1297, Institut Des Maladies Métaboliques Et Cardiovasculaires, Institut National de La Santé Et de La Recherche Médicale (INSERM), Toulouse, France.

Recent studies suggested that ibrutinib, a Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitor, developed for the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia, may prevent NLRP3 inflammasome activation in macrophages, IL-1β secretion and subsequent development of inflammation and organ fibrosis. The role of NLRP3 has been underlined in the various causes of acute kidney injury (AKI), a pathology characterized by high morbimortality and risk of transition toward chronic kidney disease (CKD). We therefore hypothesized that the BTK-inhibitor ibrutinib could be a candidate drug for AKI treatment. Read More

Atypical myopathy in 2 Bactrian camels.

J Vet Diagn Invest 2021 Jun 7:10406387211020721. Epub 2021 Jun 7.

Institutes for Veterinary-Pathology, Justus-Liebig-University, Giessen, Germany.

Atypical myopathy (AM) is an acute seasonal rhabdomyolysis seen primarily in equids, caused by the ingestion of sycamore maple samaras containing hypoglycin A (HGA) and methylenecyclopropyl-glycine (MCPG). Toxic metabolites inhibit acyl-CoA dehydrogenases and enoyl-CoA hydratases, causing selective hyaline degeneration of type I muscle fibers. Two zoo-kept Bactrian camels () with a fatal course of AM had sudden onset of muscle pain and weakness, recumbency, and dysphagia, accompanied by increased serum creatine kinase activity and detection in serum of HGA, MCPG, and metabolites.

Hair-Dye-Related Accidental Poisoning and Death.

Cureus 2021 Apr 21;13(4):e14607. Epub 2021 Apr 21.

Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Washington, USA.

Para phenylenediamine (PPD) is a common component of hair dye as well as temporary tattoos and is a well-known cause of type 4 hypersensitivity reactions from topical exposure. While there have been several cases reported in the literature describing toxicities following ingestion, there are a paucity of reports of severe systemic disease following topical exposure. Cases of PPD ingestion have been reported to present with angioedema-like reactions, often progressing to rhabdomyolysis and renal failure. Read More

Adenovirus Infection and Rhabdomyolysis as a Cause of Acute Liver Failure in a Healthy Collegiate Football Athlete: A Case Report and Proposed Return to Play Protocol for Rhabdomyolysis.

Cureus 2021 Apr 15;13(4):e14510. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Orthopaedic Surgery, Stanford University, Stanford, USA.

Adenovirus is a common cause of upper respiratory and gastrointestinal tract infections. Though cases of significant organ failure and death have been reported in young children and immunocompromised individuals, adenovirus infections in healthy individuals are typically self-limiting without significant morbidity or mortality. Exertional rhabdomyolysis is a pathologic condition resulting from repetitive, excessive, or prolonged exercise, often in a hot environment, leading to acute muscle injury, renal injury and, rarely, death.

Incidence of Refeeding Syndrome in Pediatric Inpatients at the US-Mexico Border.

South Med J 2021 Jun;114(6):351-355

From the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine, Texas Tech University Health Science Center at El Paso, El Paso.

Objectives: Refeeding syndrome is a life-threatening, physiological process that occurs when patients with severe malnutrition are too rapidly rehabilitated, leading to the development of electrolyte abnormalities. Hypophosphatemia, a hallmark of the disease, has most commonly been studied, because it is recognized to result in cardiac arrhythmias, seizures, cardiac failure, respiratory failure, rhabdomyolysis, coma, and even death. Although many studies have found caloric intake to be a main causal factor in refeeding syndrome, few have explored other factors, such as geographic location. Read More

A review of Covid-19 and acute kidney injury: from pathophysiology to clinical results.

J Bras Nefrol 2021 May 28. Epub 2021 May 28.

Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo, Faculdade de Ciências Médicas e da Saúde, São Paulo, SP, Brasil.

Acute kidney injury (AKI) in hospitalized patients with COVID-19 is associated with higher mortality and a worse prognosis. Nevertheless, most patients with COVID-19 have mild symptoms, and about 5% can develop more severe symptoms and involve hypovolemia and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. In a pathophysiological perspective, severe SARS-CoV-2 infection is characterized by numerous dependent pathways triggered by hypercytokinemia, especially IL-6 and TNF-alpha, leading to systemic inflammation, hypercoagulability, and multiple organ dysfunction.
