UNLABELLED Cardiac angiosarcoma represents a primary cardiac malignancy tumor whose early diagnosis is difficult because of its non specific clinical presentation. We present the case of a 57 years old patient with medium abundance hemoptysis. The chest X ray film and CT scan showed bilateral pulmonary infiltrate without cardiac anomaly. Abdominal(More)
UNLABELLED Myocardial infarction is a common cause of mortality in people with diabetes. The aim of this study was to determine early and mid-term mortality in diabetic patients with myocardial infarction and to determine if hyperglycemia was predictor of mortality. We conducted a retrospective study of 100 diabetic patients compared with 100 non diabetic(More)
We report a case of gastric dilatation in a ventilated 18-year-old woman, which was revealed by the acute onset of hypotension, sinus bradycardia, and complete atrioventricular block. Hypotension and cardiac rhythm disturbances resolved with intravenous injection of atropine, but recurred a few minutes later and required a second bolus of atropine, which(More)
UNLABELLED We describe the clinical and echocardiographic features in 12 patients with hydatid cyst of the heart who were screened between 1985 and 2001. Presenting symptoms have a wide variability but the main symptom was precordial pain. The electrocardiogram was always abnormal and showed T wave inversion in 8 cases, ST depression in 5 cases, incomplete(More)
The frequency of pericardial involvement in Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) is high but usually was asymptomatic and cardiac tamponnade was exceptional. We report a case of systemic sclerosis (scleroderma) revealed by cardiac tamponnade. This case illustrate the value of transthoracic echocardiography in the diagnosis of cardiac tamponnade in systémic sclerosis.
There is no data available on the cardiovascular risk of children under 18 years of age in Tunisia, although it is well known that these risk factors present themselves in childhood. The authors performed an epidemiological study based on a representative sample of 793 schoolchildren in the rural region of Sousse, in Tunisia, to determine the incidence of(More)
UNLABELLED Symptoms of the late infantile form of type II glycogen storage disease are mainly due to functional impairment of skeletal muscle. Cardiac muscle can be involved in the late stage of the disease. CASE REPORT We report the cases of two siblings seven and 12 years old with type II glycogen storage disease. The initial symptoms were hypertrophic(More)
The authors report the case of a 6-year-old girl with multi-organ hydatid disease, revealed by a complication: hydatid cyst of the right atrium. They emphasize the latency and clinical polymorphism of right cardiac sites of hydatid cyst and the severity of its prognosis. The particular site of this right atrial tumour and its relations with the septal(More)
Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in persons under the age of 45 years is uncommon. To determine the clinical features in young patients presenting with AMI, we include 38 patients with mean age 35 years who survive from myocardial infarction. This disease is almost associated with cardiovascular risk factors, the most common of which are tobacco abuse(More)
