  • Renal Function Improvement With Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 Receptor Agonist in a Patient With Type 2 Diabetes

    Diabetic kidney disease (DKD) includes hypertensive nephrosclerosis, aging, obesity, and atherosclerosis-related renal diseases, in addition to classical diabetic nephropathy. Sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitors (SGLT2is) have been approved for diabetic and non-diabetic patients at risk of chronic kidney disease progression.

  • Idiopathic Hypertrophic Spinal Pachymeningitis

    Hypertrophic pachymeningitis (HP) is a rare presentation with duramater thickening and fibrosis which can result in cranial or spinal compressive disease. Most cases of spinal HP require surgical management.

  • Multiple Complications of Crohn’s Disease and the Need for Early and Continuous Multidisciplinary Undertaking

    Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory disease that typically affects the bowels but can also have many different extraintestinal manifestations. One of those complications is immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN), which is one of the most encountered renal lesions in the setting of Crohn’s disease.

  • Synchronous Left Ventricular and Endocranial Mass

    Myocardial cysts represent a miscellaneous and infrequent spectrum of conditions, with each of them coming from a different etiological background. Congenital myocardial cysts, neoplasia, cysts of infectious origin (bacterial, viral, or parasitic).

  • A Case of Radiation-Associated Vertebral Compression Fracture Mimicking Solitary Bone Metastasis of Lung Cancer

    Radiation therapy plays an important role in the treatment of lung cancer. Although adverse effects of radiation are well known, they are sometimes difficult to be diagnosed. We report a case of a radiation-associated vertebral compression fracture which mimicked bone metastasis of lung cancer.




Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma Complicated by Skeletal Muscle Metastases

We present a case of a 66-year-old male with severe muscular pain after diagnosis of upper tract urothelial carcinoma, who was found to have extensive metastasis to skeletal muscles including gluteal, sternocleidomastoid, deltoid, vastus lateralis, and gastrocnemius muscles. Full Text

A Rare Case of Coccidioidomycosis Meningitis

Disseminated coccidioidomycosis is a fungal disease endemic to the Southwest United States as well as South and Central America. This dimorphic fungus typically manifests as pulmonary infection; however, there are very rare instances of extrapulmonary disseminated disease especially in immunocompromised hosts. Full Text

Key Clinical Image

Anesthetic Care During Exploratory Laparotomy and Excision of a Fetus-in-Fetu With a Combined General-Regional Anesthetic Technique Using a Caudal Epidural Catheter
Fetus-in-fetu (FIF) is a rare, congenital anomaly involving the presence of one of a pair of twins within the body of the other. It is postulated that this pathology occurs during embryogenesis of a diamniotic-monochorionic twin pregnancy with unequal division of the blastocele, which results in monozygotic, monochorionic, and diamniotic twins of unequal sizes.
