Hypertrophic pachymeningitis as an important neurological complication of granulomatosis with polyangiitis.

Reumatologia 2018 23;56(6):399-405. Epub 2018 Dec 23.

Clinic of Internal Medicine, Connective Tissue Diseases, and Geriatrics, Medical University of Gdańsk, Poland.

Headache is a common symptom in patients with granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) mainly due to chronic sinusitis or orbital disease. Meningeal involvement may thus remain unrecognized for a long time. This can lead to a significant delay in accurate diagnosis, serious local damage of the central nervous system and high relapse rates. Read More

Clin Drug Investig 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Department of Dermatology, Fukushima Medical University, Hikarigaoka 1, Fukushima, 960-1295, Japan.

Palmoplantar pustulosis (PPP) is a chronic inflammatory disorder characterized by sterile pustules predominantly involving the palms and soles. The purpose of this review was to describe the characteristics of Japanese PPP patients as PPP is frequently observed within the Japanese population. Most Japanese dermatologists consider PPP a distinct entity, and co-existence of PPP and psoriasis is rare; however, outside Japan, PPP is often considered to be palmoplantar psoriasis, and an extra-palmoplantar lesion associated with PPP is considered to be psoriasis.

Investigating the correlation between mucus cytokine levels, inflammatory cell counts, and baseline quality-of-life measures in chronic rhinosinusitis.

Int Forum Allergy Rhinol 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, TN.

Background: It is hypothesized that uncontrolled inflammation is responsible for many of the manifestations and symptoms of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Although earlier work has demonstrated an association between olfactory loss and mucus cytokines, the impact on other symptoms is unknown. In this study we investigated the relationship between cytokines, inflammatory cell counts, and patient-reported outcomes measures to better understand how the inflammatory microenvironment correlates with CRS symptomatology.

Technical considerations for lung transplantation in Kartagener's syndrome.

Ann Thorac Surg 2018 Oct 26. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Department of Surgery. Electronic address:

Kartagener's syndrome is a rare genetic disorder of ciliated epithelial cells associated with recurrent respiratory tract infections, bronchiectasis, and situs inversus. In some patients the accumulation of airway secretions and recurrent infections lead to end-stage lung disease, for which lung transplantation (LT) is the only effective treatment. Anatomical variations, such as dextrocardia and pulmonary situs inversus, make the procedure challenging, yet feasible with certain technical modifications and careful preparation of donor lungs.

Influence of a medialized middle turbinate on olfactory function: a prospective randomized double-blind study.

Int Forum Allergy Rhinol 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Gyeongsang National University School of Medicine and Gyeongsang National University Hospital, Jinju, Republic of Korea.

Background: Medialization of the middle turbinate (MT) is an effective technique to prevent recurrent rhinosinusitis but could, in theory, reduce olfactory function by interfering the odorants to reach the olfactory mucosae. We performed a prospective randomized double-blind trial under the hypothesis that olfactory functions would be affected by the status of olfactory mucosae, not by MT medialization.

Methods: In randomly selected sides, the unilateral MT was medialized in 80 patients undergoing bilateral endoscopic sinus surgery for chronic rhinosinusitis. Read More
