  • 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.

  • Tocilizumab Treatment for Takayasu Arteritis in Pregnancy: A Case Report With Positive Maternal and Neonatal Outcomes

    Takayasu arteritis (TAK) is a rare vasculitis that often affects young women of childbearing age, and its management during pregnancy poses unique challenges. Limited data exist regarding the safety and efficacy of tocilizumab (TCZ), an interleukin-6 receptor antagonist, in the treatment of TAK during pregnancy.

  • Metastatic Squamous Cell Carcinoma From Primary Hypopharynx Source to Gastric Mucosa Presenting as Massive Gastrointestinal Bleeding

    Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is a relatively safe procedure that represents an important supportive adjunctive component for patients with primary head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC).

  • 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.




Tuberculous Pericarditis Presenting as Cardiac Tamponade: Role of Echocardiography

Tuberculous pericarditis, a rare but potentially lethal manifestation of tuberculosis, poses diagnostic and therapeutic challenges in clinical practice. Its nonspecific clinical presentation often mimics other conditions, leading to delayed or missed diagnoses. 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

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
