Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) are novel anticancer therapy approved in multiple tumors and their use is rapidly increasing. They are associated with various systemic side effects that are immune-mediated and clinically coined as "immune-related adverse effects" (irAE). Hyponatremia is a possible side effect in patients receiving ICIs. Fever is another side effect that is mostly non-infectious. There are different mechanisms leading to hyponatremia in patients on ICIs, which could be (1) hy...

Roseomonas species, a rare Gram-negative microorganism, has seldom been reported to cause peritonitis in end-stage renal disease patients on peritoneal dialysis. Only seven cases of peritonitis by this rare microorganism have been reported worldwide. Treatment options can be challenging if not detected early and can lead to significant morbidity and mortality along with the switching of the dialysis modality to hemodialysis which is highly undesirable. Our patient is a 65-year-old Caucasian fema...

Abstract ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is the most serious manifestation of acute coronary syndrome. A variety of noncardiac conditions can mimic STEMI on electrocardiography (ECG). We describe a case of gastrointestinal distention and ileus masquerading as STEMI on ECG and posits a mechanism for this effect. (Level of Difficulty: Intermediate.)

: Systemic amyloidosis is a rare condition that can manifest with cardiomyopathy, hepatic dysfunction, and renal disease. Diagnosis is often missed and/or delayed due to chronic multi-system involvement and indeterminate signs and symptoms. Treatment generally involves systemic therapy and autologous stem-cell transplantation.

: We report a case of a 23-year-old female with a history of unrepaired ventricular septal defect and pulmonary arterial hypertension with Eisenmenger's syndrome (ES) presenting with chest pain. Electrocardiography demonstrated new anterior Q waves and anterolateral ST elevations, and coronary angiography revealed a large organized thrombus in the mid-left anterior descending artery consistent with paradoxical coronary embolism. Patient was treated with percutaneous coronary intervention and agg...
