We report the first case of spontaneous chylothorax complicating small cell lung cancer. A 52 year old female presented with exertional dyspnoea, left-sided chest and neck pain, and dysphagia. The chest X-ray on admission revealed a large left-sided pleural effusion. A subsequent CT chest showed a large anterior mediastinal mass with a left brachiocephalic… (More)
Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis (PAP) is a rare condition with an incidence of one in two million and is classified as primary or secondary. This is the first reported case presenting as a slow resolving pneumonia.
Fusobacterium infection should be considered in the pathogenesis of recurrent pharyngitis and can lead to Lemierre's syndrome if left untreated. A 25-year-old non-smoking warehouse worker presented to the acute medical take with a five-day history of worsening symptoms including anorexia, lethargy, myalgia, swinging fevers and night sweats. He had been seen… (More)
Gaseous Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) have become an important test bed for studying the dynamics of quantized vortices. In this work we use two-photon Doppler sensitive Bragg scattering to study the rotation of sodium BECs. We analyze the microscopic flow field and present laboratory measurements of the coarse-grained velocity profile. Unlike… (More)
