D-dimer levels in patients with thromboangiitis obliterans.

Natl Med J India 2019 May-Jun;32(3):134-136

Department of Biostatistics, Christian Medical College, Vellore, Tamil Nadu, India.

Background: Thromboangiitis obliterans (TAO) or Buerger disease is a recurring progressive segmental vasculopathy that presents with inflammation and thrombosis of small and medium arteries and veins of the hands and feet. The exact cause remains unknown, with tobacco use (primarily smoking but also smokeless tobacco) being highly associated with the disease. The diagnosis is clinical and the lack of a diagnostic gold standard is a deterrent to diagnosing it in patients with atypical presentations. Read More

Case of internal jugular vein thrombosis and fever: Lemierre's syndrome or Trousseau's syndrome?

Ci Ji Yi Xue Za Zhi 2020 Jan-Mar;32(1):91-95. Epub 2019 Jun 6.

Department of Emergency Medicine, Taipei Tzu Chi Hospital, Buddhist Tzu Chi Medical Foundation, New Taipei, Taiwan.

Internal jugular vein thrombosis is a rare critical cardiovascular emergency, which has potential catastrophic clinical outcomes by resulting in stroke and pulmonary embolism. Several etiologies have been reported; however, there are limited data on Lemierre's and Trousseau's syndromes, which are both rare conditions with advanced disease progression and poor clinical outcomes. Lemierre's syndrome may present with typical progressively infectious symptoms and signs, including sore throat, neck mass, and fever, whereas Trousseau's syndrome may present with thrombophlebitis and painful edema.

Cerebral Infarction Followed by Myocardial Infarction in a Young Adult with Protein C and S Deficiency.

Cureus 2020 Jan 15;12(1):e6665. Epub 2020 Jan 15.

Internal Medicine, Dow University of Health Sciences, Karachi, PAK.

Protein C (PC) and protein S (PS) are natural anticoagulants that protect the body against thrombosis, and their deficiency, either inherited or acquired, renders the body to a hypercoagulable state. This leads to venous thromboembolism manifesting as thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and superficial thrombophlebitis among other causes. The involvement of arteries is rare and has been explained by only a few studies. Read More
