It has been suggested that pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) could be a potential sequela of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in particular in those with hypertension; however, development of PAH after the course of COVID-19 in normotensive individuals are rarely reported. Here, we report a patient who developed PAH two months post-COVID-19. The patient was a 55-year-old female and normotensive, tested positive for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), developed mi...
Abstract Primary Intrapulmonary Thymoma (PIT) is an infrequent ectopic lung tumor that poses a diagnostic dilemma and has a poorly understood origin. We report a previously healthy 61-year-old lady who presented with cough and weight loss for a month. Diagnostic imaging showed a large left upper lobe mass and two multifocal pleural based nodules in the left lower lobe. She underwent Computed Tomography (CT) guided biopsy of the lung mass and histopathological findings was consistent with a combi...

Abstract Indwelling Pleural Catheters (IPC) are increasingly being used for management of recurrent pleural effusions (RPEs). The frequent use of IPC for management of malignant as well non-malignant recurrent pleural effusions has been associated with complications. Dysfunctional or nonfunctioning IPCs are being seen more frequently seen in the clinical practice. Alteplase, a tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) is extensively been used now to restore flow of non-draining IPC in symptomatic patie...

Birt-Hogg-Dube Syndrome (BHDS) is a rare autosomal dominant disease which manifests with cutaneous hamartomas, lung cysts and renal carcinomas. A wide spectrum of phenotypic expression and few visible manifestations makes BHDS a likely under-recognized entity. Diffuse cystic lung disease (DCLD) is the typical pulmonary manifestation of BHDS, which in the absence of other specific findings carries a broad differential diagnosis. Unlike many other causes of DCLD, BHDS is not known to present with ...
Abstract A 63-year-old female was admitted to our hospital with history of persistent dyspnea. Right pleural effusion and ovarian tumor were discovered, but here were no significant findings on thoracoscopy under local anesthesia. The pleural effusion was suspected to be secondary to Meigs' syndrome, and a diagnosis of endometriotic ovarian cyst was made. Since the pleural effusion resolved after surgery, the patient was diagnosed with incomplete pseudo-Meigs' syndrome. We consider this to be a ...

Abstract A fifty year old male was diagnosed with bronchial HPV. He was treated with local interventional treatment argon plasma coagulation and subcutaneous injections bevacizumab. Spraying of the regions followed with a specially designed catheter with interferon-α (2b). Systematic treatment of esomeprazole was also administered. After six months the patient is disease free and on close follow-up.
We describe a case of an 82-year-old Japanese woman with pulmonary amyloidosis and hemosiderosis associated with multiple myeloma. She had a background of end-stage renal failure of unknown etiology and had been on maintenance dialysis for 2 years. She complained of exertional dyspnea for four months. High-resolution CT of the chest revealed diffuse ground-glass opacities with mosaic attenuation, consolidation in the left lingular lobe, and wedge-shaped, subpleural nodules in the bilateral lower...

Abstract A significant dysfunction of another organ is usually considered an absolute contraindication for lung transplant, unless multi-organ transplantation is indicated and practicable, as is the case of combined lung-kidney transplantation. Few cases of combined lung-kidney transplant have been described in literature, however it is known that in certain cases it is the only way to offer an opportunity to selected patients with renal and lung dysfunction. The authors are not aware of any pre...

Abstract The role for PD-1/PD-L1 and CTLA-4 targeted immunotherapy is well outlined in the treatment of metastatic NSCLC. Increased survival benefit supports the use of these medications and the development of next-generation agents with improved efficacy and favorable side-effect profiles. The prevalence of immunotherapy-associated cardiotoxicity (IAC) has grown significantly over the past two years as awareness of this toxicity class has emerged. High-grade conduction disorders comprise a subs...

ABSTRACT We report a rare case of a 70-year-old male with recurrent pneumothoraces within one year treated with intermittent insertion of chest tube on each occasion. Diagnostic testing was notable for a cystic lesion in the left lung that was initially interpreted as bulla on chest x-ray and chest computed tomographic scan. Due to thickening and nodularity changes of the thin wall of the cystic lesion, the patient underwent left upper lobectomy. Pathology showed poorly differentiated squamous c...
