Relapsing polychondritis (RP) is a rare and, if not treated, potentially lethal autoimmune disorder. Involvement of central nervous system (CNS) in RP is rare and, when present, makes it extremely difficult to diagnose. In this report, we present a case of a 22-year-old Hispanic woman who presented with sudden onset of headache and blurred vision. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of her brain and orbit showed leptomeningeal enhancements in addition to asymmetrical thickening and enhancement of g...

Hypercalcemia is one of the most commonly encountered laboratory abnormalities in clinical medicine. Various causes have been well established. However, it is likely that the novel coronavirus, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), may be a newly found cause of this frequent finding, especially amongst those with a history of cosmetic surgery, specifically by means of silicone injection. In this case series, we describe 2 patients presenting with symptomatic hypercalcemia...

The emergence of a novel coronavirus and global pandemic raised the need for the rapid development of new vaccines to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with Covid-19. Common side effects of these vaccines such as myalgia, arthralgia, nausea, fatigue, and injection site reaction are usually self-resolving. Recognition of other potential adverse effects of these novel vaccines is important due to their rapid and widespread distribution. We report a case of a 51-year-old man admitted to...

Lyme carditis is a rare manifestation of early disseminated Lyme disease with an incidence of 0.5% with left ventricular dysfunction and valvular involvement being exceedingly rare. Clinical manifestations typically occur 1 to 2 months after infection and include arrhythmias, conduction abnormalities, myopericarditis, and ventricular dysfunction. If left untreated, Lyme carditis can lead to acute heart failure and sudden cardiac death thus prompt diagnosis and treatment are essential in manageme...

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 null 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) hypovol...

While diverticulosis is a common phenomenon in the large intestine, it is a rare disease found in the small intestine accounting for only 0.06% to 1.3% of cases. Although most cases are asymptomatic, roughly 30% to 40%, it is crucial that it is on the differential of acute abdominal pain as it can be life-threatening and potentially require surgical management. Here, we describe a case of a 61-year-old Hispanic man who was found to have a perforated jejunal diverticula after initially presenting...
