Supraglottitis secondary to Haemophilus influenzae serotype f infection: Case report and review of literature

Supraglottitis secondary to Haemophilus influenzae serotype f infection: Case report and review of literature
Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Supraglottitis secondary to Haemophilus influenzae serotype f infection: Case report and review of literature Chelsea Jocelyn Kubinec and Marina Ulanova Northern Ontario School of Medicine, Thunder Bay, Ontario Introduction: Haemophilus influenzae is an important human pathogen capable of causing serious invasive disease. The H. influenzae serotype b (Hib) conjugate vaccine successfully reduced the incidence of invasive Hib disease globally, revealing the significance of other H. influenzae serotypes. The emergence of H. influenzae type f (Hif) invasive disease has been reported worldwide. Case report: We identified a case of supraglottitis secondary to Hif in a 57-year-old female from northwestern Ontario without significant predisposing conditions. We describe the clinical presentation, disease progression, and outcome. The case is discussed in the context of current epidemiology of invasive Hif disease. Conclusion: This report emphasizes the severity of Hif invasive disease and the need for continued surveillance at the international level. We call for the development of health promotion strategies and the consideration of a vaccine ...

Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports A rare case of Warthin-like papillary thyroid carcinoma associated to Graves' disease Olfa Adounia, Imen Zawatia , Sabrine Boukhrisb, Ilhem Bettaieba, Fatma Tekaria, Aida Gouchaa, riadh charguib, Amor Gamoudia, Khaled Rahalb aDepartement of Immuno-Histo-Cytology, Salah Azaiez Institute, Tunis, Tunisia. bDepartment of surgical oncology, Salah Azaiez Institute, Tunis, Tunisia. Warthin-like variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (WLV-PTC) is a recently described rare variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma with favorable prognosis. We present a rare case of WLV-PTC in a 29-year-old female patient with graves’ disease along with emphasis on the difficulty of positive diagnosis both clinically and histologically since the association of thyroid nodules with Graves’ disease is not common and this variant of thyroid cancer is frequently misdiagnosed with other subtypes. Keywords: graves’disease, thyroid cancer, warthin-like variant ...

Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Breast metastasis from pancreatic adenocarcinoma in a male patient Olfa Adounia, Sabrine Boukhrisb, Marwa Mhiria, lhem Bettaieba, Aida Gouchaa, Riadh Charguib, Ben dhiab Tarekb, Amor Gamoudia, Khaled Rahalb aDepartement of Immuno-Histo-Cytology, Salah Azaiez Institute, Tunis, Tunisia. bDepartment of surgical oncology, Salah Azaiez Institute, Tunis, Tunisia. Metastasis to the breast from extramammary carcinoma are uncommon. A 63-year-old male presented with abdominal pain resistant to treatment. On clinical examination, the abdomen was soft, depressible but sensitive in the left upper quadrant. Palpation of the right breast revealed a subcutaneous mobile nodule, mobile, measuring 1.5 cm long axis. A whole-body CT was requested and showed a metastatic pancreatic. Mammogram and breast ultrasound showed a relatively well limited nodule of the right breast measuring 22 mm. The patient underwent a breast lumpectomy Final haematoxylin and eosin (HE) and immunochemistry staining of the tumour and immunochemistry confirmed the diagnosis of a metastasis to the breast from pancreatic adenocarcinoma. The patient died within 2 months of initial ...

Outcome of intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy: Case report
Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Outcome of intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy: Case report Avleen Kaur1, Gurinder Mohan2, Umang3 1.Medical officer, Singhania Hospital, Amritsar. 2.Professor,Department of Medicine, Sri Guru Ram Das University of Health & Science Amritsar, Punjab, India. 3.Assistant Professor, Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Sri Guru Ram Das University of Health & Sciences ,Amritsar, Punjab, India. We present a patient diagnosed with intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy at 30 weeks 6 days of gestation. She presented with complaint of pruritus associated with hepatic cytolysis and elevated transaminases revealed by laboratory tests. The emphasis must be laid on importance of early diagnosis of intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy to improve the fetal prognosis and to eliminate other severe conditions associated with hepatic cytoloysis syndrome and pruritus.

ANOMALOUS FORMATION OF THE PORTAL VEIN – A CASE REPORT

ANOMALOUS FORMATION OF THE PORTAL VEIN – A CASE REPORT
Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports ANOMALOUS FORMATION OF THE PORTAL VEIN – A CASE REPORT WMS Johnson1, Gunapriya Raghunath2, Sreelekha D3, Archana Rajasundaram3 1Prof. & HOD, Department  of Anatomy , Sree Balaji Medical College & Hospital, 2Prof. & HOD, Department  of Anatomy , Saveetha Medical College & Hospital, 3Assistant Professor, Department of Anatomy, Sree Balaji Medical College & Hospital, Chennai. The knowledge about the formation and relation of the portal vein is important for surgeons. The variation in the level of formation and the pattern of formation of portal vein is a cause of concern during surgical procedures. An abnormal formation of portal vein that was encountered during routine dissection is reported. The portal vein was formed by the union of splenic vein, superior mesenteric vein and inferior mesenteric veins. Identification of these variations is useful in managing traumatic rupture of the mesentery. Keywords: variations, portal vein, obstruction ...
