  • Stroke as an atypical initial presentation of giant cell arteritis. [Journal Article]
  • BGBMC Geriatr 2018 Feb 21; 18(1):55
  • Kuganesan T, Huang AR
  • CONCLUSIONS: The initial presentation of giant cell arteritis as a stroke syndrome, especially in the posterior circulation territory, is exceedingly rare. Other atypical presenting symptoms may include chronic cough and fever of unknown origin. The elevated ESR and CRP levels were clues to the diagnosis and clinical decision-making should be driven by a high index of suspicion since no single test (ESR, CRP, temporal artery biopsy) has perfect sensitivity. Elevated CRP may have a role in increasing stroke risk. This case report illustrates that in older people clinicians must consider atypical presentations of disease more often since timely diagnosis and initiation of treatment can result in optimal outcomes.
  • Effect of inhaled corticosteroids on lung function in chronic beryllium disease. [Journal Article]
  • RMRespir Med 2018 Feb 05
  • Mroz MM, Ferguson JH, … Maier LA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although FVC and DLCO did not improve in the ICS treated group, we saw no difference in decline compared to matched controls. Symptoms of dyspnea and cough improved with ICS especially in those with obstruction and air trapping suggesting that these should be considered an indication of ICS use in CBD patients.
  • Diet Pattern and Respiratory Morbidity in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study. [Journal Article]
  • AAAnn Am Thorac Soc 2018 Feb 15
  • Brigham EP, Steffen LM, … McCormack MC
  • CONCLUSIONS: Dietary pattern was significantly associated with respiratory outcomes in ARIC participants. A "Western" diet was adverse, whereas a "Prudent" diet was beneficially related to respiratory morbidity and objective measures of lung function. Additional studies of dietary pattern in U.S. populations are needed to verify this effect.
