Allo-immune membranous nephropathy and recombinant aryl sulfatase replacement therapy: a need for tolerance induction therapy.
TLDR
This work identifies a new antigen responsible for secondary membranous nephropathy in a patient with mucopolysaccharidosis type VI caused by aryl sulfatase B (ASB) deficiency and concludes that the allo-immune response to the recombinant rhASB caused the nephrotic syndrome.
[Lipomas of the mesentery in young children].
TLDR
A case which underlines the difficulty of establishing the diagnosis of Lipomas of the small bowel and mesentery before exploratory laparotomy is reported, which is exceedingly rare in young pediatric patients.
[Multifocal invasive Kingella kingae infection].
TLDR
The tropism of Kingella kingae is essentially osteoarticular and cardiac as shown by the cases reported in the literature, and its susceptibility to antibiotics explains the frequent favourable outcome.

11-Deoxycorticosterone Producing Adrenal Hyperplasia as a Very Unusual Cause of Endocrine Hypertension: Case Report and Systematic Review of the Literature
TLDR
11-deoxycorticosterone-producing adrenal lesions are very rare, affecting mostly middle-aged women with a primary aldosteronism-like clinical presentation and carcinoma is the most frequent histological diagnosis.
[Neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy. Apropos of 3 cases in siblings].
TLDR
Differences with X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy include genetic inheritance, which is autosomal recessive, a more severe prognosis, and presence of multiple peroxisome enzyme deficiencies that justify classification alongside the Zellweger syndrome among the peroxISome disorders.
