Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) have rapidly shifted the landscape of treatments in malignancy with significant improvements in survival paradigm. They have been an attractive armamentarium to the oncologists given the limited immune adverse effects with potential for deeper and durable benefits that haven't been previously noticed with chemotherapy. However, they result in unique toxicities by limiting immune self-tolerance and cause immune-mediated endocrinopathies, such as hypothyroidism,...

Objective: To determine if early palliative care intervention within two days of hospital admission affects the length of stay and cost savings. Methods: Using a retrospective chart review, 570 patients who received palliative care consultation were reviewed between 2016 and 2018. 287 patients were seen within 2 days of days and the total 355 were seen within 3 days of admission. Data on length of stay and total charges were analyzed for both groups. Results: In the early consult group, both len...

Polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal protein, and skin changes (POEMS) syndrome is an uncommon multisystemic disease associated with plasma cell dyscrasia. Due to the disease's rarity and an even rarer presentation of stroke in afflicted patients, a direct association between POEMS syndrome and stroke remains ambiguous. Thrombocytosis, hyperfibrinogenemia, and increased levels of inflammatory cytokines occur in this disease, which can predispose patients to thromboembolic eve...

Background: Colonoscopy screenings are the most valuable tool in preventing colorectal mortalities. The traditional technique uses air-insufflation, but water-infusion is a newer colonoscopy technique which is rapidly becoming standard of care, as it may decrease patient discomfort and the need for analgesics and anesthetics. Research is still ongoing as to the comparability of detection rates between the two techniques. The purpose of this study was to determine if training residents in underwa...

Checkpoint inhibitors are introduced as a therapy for clinical use for various cancers, and clinicians are documenting new adverse effects. This is the first case report to the best of our knowledge of a patient on checkpoint inhibitor presenting with both polyendocrinopathy and gangrenous gallbladder disease with a mass negative for malignancy.71-year-old man presented four years after his initial diagnosis of stage IV, unresectable, non-ulcerated, acryl, lentiginous malignant melanoma. On pres...

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a heterogeneous, chronic, inflammatory, autoimmune disease characterised by multiorgan involvement and the production of multiple autoantibodies. Neurological manifestations in SLE patients are frequently reported—the prevalence is 37%–90%. We present a unique case where the patient presented with bilateral wrist and foot drop for 4 days, which later led to the diagnosis of SLE-related vasculitic polyneuropathy. During the course of treatment, the patient re...

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a chronic multisystem immune-mediated disease. Histologically, it presents as infiltration with IgG4-secreting plasma cells affecting many organs such as the pancreas, lacrimal glands, salivary glands, kidneys, and arteries, resulting in chronic fibrosis and scarring within the tissue which over time forms into a mass. It is a slow-growing process that usually remains indolent until it causes a mass effect or tissue infiltration. Our patient was fou...
