COVID-19 and Long COVID

COVID-19 and Post COVID-19 Condition (Long COVID)
The COVID-19 outbreak presents the unprecedented challenge for world public and medical practitioners and health care providers, the post COVID-19 condition (or long COVID) includes long term symptoms which may persist for months or years after SARS-CoV-2 infection. We will consider submissions related to all aspects of COVID-19 and Long COVID, and process the manuscripts in priority.
Collection of COVID-19 articles.


  • Statin-Induced Immune-Mediated Necrotizing Myopathy Resulting in Proximal Muscle Weakness

    Statin-induced immune-mediated necrotizing myopathy (IMNM) is a subtype of IMNM linked to exposure to statins and is characterized by positive anti-hydroxymethylglutaryl (HMG) coenzyme A reductase (HMGCR) antibodies.

  • Uncommon Presentation of Undiagnosed B-Cell Lymphoproliferative Disorder as Nodular Pulmonary Amyloidosis

    B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders are characterized by the accumulation of mature B lymphocytes in the bone marrow, lymphoid tissues, and/or peripheral blood. They can cause amyloid deposits in the lungs.

  • Retroperitoneal Liposarcoma: The Giant Type

    Retroperitoneal tumors (RPTs) are very rare tumors that arise in the large space of the retroperitoneum. About two-third of these tumors are malignant, of which soft tissue sarcoma (STS) is the most common and comprises almost one-third of malignant RPTs. Twenty to thirty percent of RPTs are benign.

  • Polyethylene Glycol 3350 Crystal Nephropathy in Association With Glomerular Mesangial Immunoglobin A Deposition

    Polyethylene glycol (PEG) 3350, an active ingredient of over-the-counter MiraLAX, is a commonly used laxative in children and is produced by polymerization of ethylene glycol (EG). Masked EG toxicity secondary to contamination of PEG 3350 could occur.

  • Severe Tricuspid Stenosis Secondary to Permanent Pacemaker Lead

    Tricuspid stenosis (TS) is a rare valvular abnormality and generally associated with mitral stenosis in cases of rheumatic heart disease. TS is now frequently being described in the setting of permanent pacemaker leads, either with or without the presence of infective endocarditis.




Durvalumab for Extensive-Stage of Small-Cell Lung Cancer With Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

Durvalumab is an immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICI) of anti-programmed cell death protein 1 ligand antibody. ICI-combined chemotherapy has recently become a standard regimen for extensive-stage of small-cell lung cancer (ES-SCLC). Full Text

Pericardial Tamponade in a Patient With a History of Pneumonectomy

Shock is the clinical presentation of circulatory failure with impaired perfusion that results in inadequate cellular oxygen utilization. Treatment requires properly identifying the type of shock that is impacting the patient (obstructive, distributive, cardiogenic, and/or hypovolemic). Full Text

Key Clinical Image

Left Main Coronary Artery Aneurysm With Rare Quadfurcation Anatomy
Coronary artery aneurysms (CAAs) are found in a small percentage of coronary angiograms, with left main coronary artery (LMCA) aneurysms being the least common. We present a 63-year-old male patient with a history of chest pain and an abnormal nuclear stress test. Cardiac catheterization showed a large LMCA aneurysm with unusual quadfurcation left main (LM) anatomy, but otherwise showed no evidence of obstructive coronary artery disease. Full Text
