A young 19 year old boy reported to the emergency with complaints of productive cough and mild haemoptysis over three days duration. Initial investigations were within normal limits. Symptoms suddenly aggravated and his condition deteriorated severely before further sophisticated investigations could be carried out. Urgent diagnostic bronchoscopy indicated it to be a case of spontaneously ruptured micro-vascular Pulmonary Arterio-Venous Malformation (PAVM) which was further confirmed on performi...

This report describes a 40-year old man with a history of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) diagnosed with Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia (PJP) twice prior to this admission, who presented with 3 days of fever, non-productive cough and shortness of breath. The patient was treated empirically for PJP, but his condition deteriorated rapidly and he expired despite resuscitative efforts. The bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and blood cultures grew Cryptococcus neoformans. Very few cases of diss...

Introduction A persistent left superior vena cava is found in 0.3–0.5% of the general population and in up to 10% of patients with a congenital cardiac anomaly. It is the most common thoracic venous anomaly and is usually asymptomatic. Being familiar with such anomaly could help clinicians avoid complications during placement of central lines, Swan-Ganz catheters, PICC lines, dialysis catheters, defibrillators, and pacemakers.

Constrictive bronchiolitis results in airways obstruction with progressive lung hyperinflation causing dyspnea and eventual respiratory failure. There are many known causes including rheumatic diseases, infections and toxic inhalations. We describe a 58-year-old man with no preexisting lung disease who suffered rapid loss of lung function with hyperinflation over months in association with rapidly progressive radiographic bronchiectasis. Airway cultures grew Mycobacterium kansasii, Pseudomonas a...

The most frequent causes of hemoptysis are infectious diseases, malignant tumors, cardiovascular disorders, and inflammatory diseases. Lobular capillary hemangioma (LCH) has rarely been reported as a cause of hemoptysis. This vascular lesion usually presents on the skin or mucous membranes, and lesion predominantly affects children with a mean age of approximately six years. It typically presents as a solitary glistening red vascular papule or nodule, prone to ulceration and bleeding. The follow...

Abstract Empyema is a severe complication of different diseases and traumas. Management of this complication is difficult and should comprise general and local procedures. The general procedure is mainly based on administering wide-spectrum antibiotics. Local management depends on general condition, but in all cases the essential procedure is inserting a drain into the pleural cavity and evacuation the pus. Sometimes pus is very thick and its evacuation and re-expansion of the lung is rather imp...

Abstract Pulmonary adenocarcinoma has long intrigued both internists and pulmonologists because it seems to have unique epidemiologic, pathologic and clinical features. We report a case of multifocal well-differentiated adenocarcinoma, mimicking honeycombing and diffuse inflammatory interstitial lung disease.

Abstract Hereditary angio-oedema is a rare autosomal dominant disease characterized by recurrent attacks of subcutaneous oedema and caused by a deficiency of the plasma protein C1 inhibitor. Hereditary angio-oedema attacks carry a high risk of morbidity or even mortality. In literature, there are only a few publications on the treatment and follow-up of paediatric patients. We report the case of a 14-year-old male with known hereditary angio-oedema since the age of six years, revealed by a recur...

Abstract Esophageal diverticula are usually asymptomatic and clinically insignificant. We report a case of a hemothorax resulting from perforation of an esophageal diverticulum. A 45-year-old man complained of severe back pain. Computed tomography of the chest showed a mediastinal mass. On the next day, a left pleural effusion was revealed, which was a hemothorax. Gastrointestinal fiberscopy suggested perforation of the esophagus; an esophagectomy was performed, and the patient was diagnosed wit...
