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.

  • 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.

  • Acute Interstitial Nephritis Induced by Clozapine

    Acute interstitial nephritis (AIN) classically presents as acute kidney injury most often induced by offending drugs. Less frequently it is secondary to infections, autoimmune disorders, or idiopathic conditions. Development of drug-related AIN is not dose dependent and a recurrence can occur with re-exposure to the drug.

  • Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy Secondary to Cryptococcal Meningoencephalitis in a Patient With Multiple Sclerosis

    We present a unique case of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy secondary to Cryptococcus neoformans meningoencephalitis in a middle-aged female with a history of multiple sclerosis who was taking immunosuppressive therapy.




Isolated Renal Relapse in a Post-Allogenic Transplant Adult Patient With Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is an aggressive hematological neoplasm typically more common in children than adults. More prolonged remissions and a potential cure can be achieved if allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) is performed. Full Text

Functionality of Monoclonal Antibody Therapy in SARS-CoV-2

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic emerged as a world crisis in 2019 and started a global search for optimal therapeutic regimen including vaccines, antiviral agents, and recently monoclonal antibody therapy. Clinical trials are currently underway for the efficacy of several neutralizing monoclonal antibodies against COVID-19. Full Text

Key Clinical Image

Reverse Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy in a Patient With Commotio Cordis
Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM), also known as stress cardiomyopathy or “broken heart syndrome”, is characterized by acute transient regional left ventricular systolic dysfunction in the absence of obstructive coronary artery disease or acute plaque rupture. Atypical forms and rare anatomical variants can have different presentations; hence, recognition becomes more important. Full Text
