  • Mycobacterium avium pleuritis with multiple nodules in the pleura. [Case Reports]
    Respirol Case Rep. 2020 Aug; 8(6):e00608.Ogata H, Harada E, … Matsumoto K
  • As opposed to tuberculosis, pleurisy hardly develops in patients with nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) infection. In spite of increasing prevalence of NTM infection, little is known about thoracoscopic or pathological findings of the NTM-infected pleura. We now report the first case of NTM pleuritis with multiple granulomatous nodules in the pleura. A 74-year-old woman was admitted to our hospit…
  • Unilateral pleural effusion with capillary haemangioma. [Case Reports]
    Respirol Case Rep. 2020 Aug; 8(6):e00613.Kadota N, Murakami M, … Tamura T
  • Here, we report a case of haemangioma on middle mediastinum accompanied by unilateral pleural effusion, which was initially suspected to be lung cancer and pleurisy. During annual check-up, chest radiography of a 30-year-old female showed homogeneous opacity in the left lower pulmonary field. Excision was performed, and the mass was pathologically diagnosed as benign mediastinal vascular tumour w…
  • THE ROLE OF CIGARETTE SMOKING AND ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION IN PULMONARY TUBERCULOSIS DEVELOPMENT AND RECURRENCE. [Journal Article]
    Acta Clin Croat. 2019 Dec; 58(4):590-594.Lampalo M, Jukić I, … Popović-Grle S
  • During a two-year period (2001-2003), 464 patients were treated for tuberculosis at Jordanovac Department for Lung Diseases in Croatia. Besides pulmonary tuberculosis in 97.7% of patients, patients were also treated for tuberculous pleurisy (0.9%), tuberculous laryngitis (0.6%), tuberculous meningitis (0.2%), tuberculous pericarditis (0.2%) and urogenital tuberculosis (0.4%). Out of the total num…
  • The practicality of a two-incision surgical approach for hypoglossal nerve stimulator implantation. [Journal Article]
    Am J Otolaryngol. 2020 Jun 01; 41(5):102585.Meleca JB, Kominsky AH
  • CONCLUSIONS: Lack of the innermost intercostal muscle and thinning of the external and internal intercostal muscles lateral to the IPG site leaves little barrier between the thoracic musculature and parietal pleural increasing the risk of complications such as pleurisy and pneumothorax. Given the anatomical findings, a two-incision surgical approach for UAS therapy is at higher risk for complications.
  • Use of pleural cryobiopsy for tissue culture specimens: a case report. [Case Reports]
    Respirol Case Rep. 2020 Aug; 8(6):e00593.Ishii S, Suzuki M, … Sugiyama H
  • A 43-year-old man presented with cough. His chest X-ray showed a left-sided pleural effusion. We suspected tuberculous pleurisy (TP), and thoracoscopy under local anaesthesia was performed. It showed entire pleura with scattered nodules. Nodules were biopsied by conventional biopsy forceps, but the tissue sample was small. Therefore, the nodules were biopsied with a cryoprobe. The tissue size obt…
  • Recognition of pulmonary pathology in a patient presenting with shoulder pain. [Journal Article]
    Physiother Theory Pract. 2020 May 27 [Online ahead of print]Brindisino F, Passudetti V, … Heick JD
  • CONCLUSIONS: . An underlyng serious pathology can be easily masked by shoulder pain. Physiotherapists need to consider that when a patient presents with a cluster of history and physical examination findings that are negative for mechanical shoulder pain, other systems must be considered as the source of presenting symptoms. Through the identification of risk factors and red flag findings, the physiotherapist can identify the need for referral.
  • [Case of Recurrent Breast Cancer with BRCA2 Mutation Successfully Treated with Olaparib Therapy]. [Journal Article]
    Gan To Kagaku Ryoho. 2020 May; 47(5):815-818.Yoneda H, Shimizu Y, Masuda R
  • A 70-year-old woman was diagnosed with cT2N2M0 left triple negative breast cancer. She received neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Around 30 months after the surgery, she developed carcinomatous pericardial tamponade, carcinomatous pleurisy, and metastatic thyroid cancer due to the breast cancer. Around the same time, a BRCA2 mutation was confirmed. Thus, olaparib therapy was started. Around 45 days after…
  • Nootkatone Inhibits Acute and Chronic Inflammatory Responses in Mice. [Journal Article]
    Molecules. 2020 May 07; 25(9)Bezerra Rodrigues Dantas L, Silva ALM, … Vitalini S
  • Nootkatone (NTK) is a sesquiterpenoid found in essential oils of many species of Citrus (Rutaceae). Considering previous reports demonstrating that NTK inhibited inflammatory signaling pathways, this study aimed to investigate the effects of this compound in mice models of acute and chronic inflammation. Murine models of paw edema induced by carrageenan, dextran, histamine, and arachidonic acid, …
