A 26-year-old woman with a history of migraine reported right-sided, severe stabbing orbital pain with cranial autonomic symptoms (CASs) for approximately 2 years. The attack duration was approximately 30 minutes, with a frequency of twice per day. Taking loxoprofen was ineffective. Six months earlier, moderate pressing continuous interictal pain without CASs had developed. Indomethacin farnesyl completely resolved the attacks but had no effect on the interictal pain. The patient was diagnosed w...

Platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome is a rare clinical entity characterized by dyspnea and arterial blood deoxygenation in a sitting position. An 89-year-old woman was diagnosed with subacute cerebellar infarction. Her blood oxygen saturation decreased to 88% in a sitting position, resulting in dyspnea. Cardiological thoracic computed tomography revealed an unruptured aortic aneurysm, an enlarged ascending aorta, right atrial compression, and counterclockwise rotation of the heart. An anatomical dist...

Patients with vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE) colonization should be managed in an isolation room with contact precautions. We herein report a patient whose colorectal carriage of VRE was successfully decolonized using concomitant bowel irrigation with polyethylene glycol, probiotics, and oral antimicrobials, linezolid and orally-administered daptomycin, for release from isolation and contact precautions. We therefore would like to suggest a potential strategy for managing patients with ...

We herein report a 46-year-old man who suffered an intentional acetaminophen overdose. Laboratory results revealed leukocytosis and an elevated procalcitonin level (8.48 ng/mL). Computed tomography showed findings suggesting possible colitis. Due to concerns about sepsis in addition to acetaminophen overdose, oral N-acetyl cysteine and piperacillin/tazobactam were started. His procalcitonin levels further increased; however, the patient remained afebrile, and the C-reactive protein levels were n...
We herein report a case of spontaneous isolated dissection of the celiac artery. A Japanese man in his 50s visited an emergency unit, complaining of sudden epigastralgia. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography indicated dissection of the celiac artery with patent false and true lumina, extending to the splenic and common hepatic arteries. On day 3 of hospitalization, the dissection progressed to the proper and right hepatic arteries. Progression of the dissection to the right hepatic artery provo...
Hypomagnesemia caused by a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) was first reported in 2006. We herein report a case of hypomagnesemia due to the long-term use of vonoprazan, a potassium-competitive acid blocker (P-CAB). A 66-year-old man was admitted to our hospital complaining of disturbance of consciousness with evidence of hypomagnesemia noted on blood testing. The long-term use of vonoprazan was considered the cause of his hypomagnesemia, so it was discontinued, after which the hypomagnesemia improve...

A 79-year-old man experienced cognitive impairment and visual field defects during ofatumumab therapy for chronic lymphocytic leukemia refractory to combination chemotherapy. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed T1-weighted low-intensity and T2-weighted high-intensity lesions with patchy gadolinium enhancement in the subcortical white matter. A diagnosis of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy was made after the detection of John Cunningham virus (JCV) DNA in his cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). ...
A 56-year-old woman with rheumatoid arthritis who had been taking methotrexate (MTX) for six years visited our hospital with dyspnea and dizziness. Abdominal ultrasonography revealed mild splenomegaly. Laboratory examinations showed a marked elevation in soluble interleukin-2 receptor and lactate dehydrogenase levels. These abnormalities revealed a spontaneous regression after MTX discontinuation, however, they worsened again four months later. Skin biopsies revealed a diagnosis of intravascular...
