Haemorrhagic diathesis in neonatal calves: an emerging syndrome in Europe.
TLDR
Histopathology of haemorrhagic lesions revealed multifocal extravasation of red blood cells (haem orrhage) with preservation of tissue architecture and absence of other abnormalities, and total bone marrow aplasia and depletion of all lymphoid tissue was the most prominent finding on histology.
Mastoiditis caused by atypical mycobacteria.
Endocarditis of native aortic and mitral valves due to Corynebacterium accolens: report of a case and application of phenotypic and genotypic techniques for identification
Endocarditis of native aortic and mitral valves due to an organism identified as Corynebacterium accolens developed in a 73-year-old patient without predisposing factors. The organism was identified
SOFT TISSUE INFECTIONS WITH ATYPICAL MYCOBACTERIA IN TWO PATIENTS WITH INFLAMMATORY RHEUMATIC DISEASES USING TNF-INHIBITORS AND/OR LEFLUNOMIDE
TLDR
The increased risk for subcutaneous mycobacterial infections in these cases are probably related to the DMARD treatment with a TNF-inhibitor and leflunomide.
A rare cause of cardiac tamponade
TLDR
The case of a 59-year-old patient presenting with a cardiac tamponade caused by extramedullary haematopoiesis due to myelofi brosis is reported.
Rheumatoid factor interference in the determination of carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA 19-9)
TLDR
Although interferences in the CA 19-9 assay are not frequent, the ADVIA Centaur system appears to be more sensitive to rheumatoid factor interference.
Erythrocyte Indices in the Assessment of Iron Status in Dialysis-Dependent Patients with End-Stage Renal Disease on Continuous Erythropoietin Receptor Activator versus Epoetin β Therapy
TLDR
Fluctuations in Ret-He and DF-HYPO XE have to be taken into account when these parameters are used for the assessment of iron-deficient states and it is suggested that a fixed time point in the CERA schedule should be chosen for iron monitoring.
A Case of Imported Melioidosis Presenting as Prostatitis
