Integrated transcriptomic analysis of human tuberculosis granulomas and a biomimetic model identifies therapeutic targets.

J Clin Invest 2021 Jun 15. Epub 2021 Jun 15.

School of Clinical and Experimental Sciences, University of Southampton, Faculty of Medicine, Southampton, United Kingdom.

Tuberculosis (TB) is a persistent global pandemic and standard treatment has not changed for thirty years. Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) has undergone prolonged co-evolution with humans, and patients can control Mtb even after extensive infection, demonstrating the fine balance between protective and pathological host responses within infected granulomas. We hypothesised that whole transcriptome analysis of human TB granulomas isolated by laser capture microdissection could identify therapeutic targets, and that comparison with a non-infectious granulomatous disease, sarcoidosis, would identify disease-specific pathological mechanisms.

Extirpation of Recurrent Petrous Apex Cholesterol Granuloma Through the Zygomatic Approach: 2-Dimensional Operative Video.

Oper Neurosurg (Hagerstown) 2021 Jun 10. Epub 2021 Jun 10.

Department of Neurosurgery, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Petrous apex cholesterol granulomas are believed to result from blockage of the normal aeration of the petrous air cells, resulting in a repetitive cycle of mucosal engorgement, hemorrhage, and granuloma formation.1 The lesion usually progressively expands causing compressive symptoms. The thick granulomatous wall envelopes various ages of breakdown products, including a cholesterol-containing fluid, which is typically hyperintense on T1 and T2 weighted magnetic resonance imaging.

Langerhans cell histiocytosis: Version 2021.

Hematol Oncol 2021 Jun;39 Suppl 1:15-23

Texas Children's Hospital Cancer and Hematology Center, Houston, Texas, USA.

Children with Langerhnans cell histiocytosis (LCH) develop granulomatous lesions with characteristic clonal CD207+ dendritic cells that can arise as single lesions or life-threatening disseminated disease. Despite the wide range of clinical presentations, LCH lesions are histologically indistinguishable based on severity of disease, and uncertain classification as an immune versus neoplastic disorder has historically challenged the development of optimal clinical strategies for patients with LCH. Recently, activating somatic mutations in MAPK pathway genes, most notably BRAFV600E, have been discovered in almost all cases of LCH. Read More

Granuloma after breast conserving surgery-a report of three cases.

J Surg Case Rep 2021 Jun 4;2021(6):rjab199. Epub 2021 Jun 4.

Department of Breast Oncology, Saitama Medical University International Medical Center, Saitama, Japan.

Granulomatous mastitis is a rare breast disease that is categorized as a benign tumor with chronic inflammation. Since the cause of the chronic inflammation is usually unknown, it is sometimes called idiopathic granulomatous mastitis (IGM). Although imaging modalities, such as ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging and mammography can detect tumors, they are sometimes unable to differentiate between benign and malignant tumors.

Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Cures Therapy-refractory Aspergillosis in Chronic Granulomatous Disease.

Pediatr Infect Dis J 2021 Jul;40(7):649-654

From the Department of Pediatric Respiratory Medicine, Immunology and Critical Care Medicine, Charité Universitätsmedizin.

Background: Pulmonary invasive aspergillosis is a frequent and life-threatening complication for patients with chronic granulomatous disease (CGD). Despite combined treatment with several groups of antifungal agents, conservative treatment of invasive aspergillosis often remains refractory. Pulmonary invasive aspergillosis is often treated by surgical resection of consolidated lobes or segments, donor granulocyte transfusions and allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT).
