We report the case of a patient, suffering from pulmonary sarcoidosis, who developed a purulent pericarditis complicated with a cardiac tamponade. The widespread use of antibiotics has progressively reduced the number of purulent pericarditis. However, it remains a serious disease that has to be rapidly diagnosed to be treated timely. We will review the required tests for the diagnosis and the treatment of this pathology that leads to death otherwise. The link with pulmonary sardoidosis is uncertain. [less ▲]

Catamenial pneumothorax is an unusual and rarely recognized entity that belongs to the thoracic endometriosis syndrome. The increase a number of published cases over the last years allows a more frequent diagnosis and understanding. We describe the story of a young woman with a recurrent right sided pneumothorax and discuss the different pathogenic mechanisms and current therapies. The rarity of the disease makes a prospective study very difficult. To this day, there is no consensus on a standardized therapeutic attitude. [less ▲]

We report the case of a 73-year-old woman who presents an acute mitral regurgitation secondary to fibro-elastic degenerescence. A mitral valvuloplasty is rapidly performed with complete disappearance of valvular insufficiency and the patient leaves the hospital ten days later. Degenerative mitral regurgitation is commonly seen in elderly patients. This constitutes an excellent indication for mitral valvuloplasty, rather than valve replacement. In our experience, mitral valvuloplasty leads to a complete correction of valvular regurgitation without neither stenosis, nor subvalvular obstruction. Left ventricular function is preserved, as subvalvular apparatus is conserved. This approach allows, in the absence of specific indication, anticoagulation withdrawn two to three months later.

Radiation recall dermatitis is an inflammatory skin reaction occurring in a previously irradiated field following the delivery of a promoting agent. It has been described after a number of antineoplastic agents such as gemcitabine, taxanes, anthracyclines. We report the case of a 50-year-old man with metastatic prostate cancer who developed two consecutive radiation recall dermatitis episodes triggered by oral cyclophosphamide. They occurred 4 to 5 weeks after palliative radiotherapy on bone metastasis. Spontaneous resolution was observed within 6 weeks after discontinuation of cyclophosphamide and with local supportive care. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of radiation recall dermatitis after oral cyclophosphamide. [less ▲]

We report the case of a patient who developed an evolutive chronic aortic dissection after ascending aorta replacement for acute type A aortic dissection. Owing to the development of severe aortic regurgitation, aortic root pseudoaneurysm and aneurysmal dilatation of the arch and descending aorta, reoperation was adviced. Reoperation included Cabrol modification of the Bentall operation and aortic arch replacement with elephant trunk performed under deep hypothermic circulatory arrest. The incidence of late aneurysmal formation in type 1 aortic dissection has been reported to be 30%. Close postoperative follow-up of the aortic diameter is necessary to detect a critical dilatation and to permit elective reoperation. [less ▲]

We describe the case of a 29 year old patient who presented severe myalgias and asthenia for 3 months. First biological assessment revealed muscular lysis and raised transaminases. The following complementary screening showed major hypothyroidism with the presence of anti-microsomes antibodies, a carpian canal syndrome and a left ventricular systolic dysfunction. A diagnosis of hypothyroidic rhabdomyolysis consecutive to a Hashimoto disease was then mash. Patient was treated by hormonal thyroid substitution with a progressive improvement of muscular symptoms to complete recovery, and a concomitant normalization of cardiac and thyroid functions.

L'échographie cardiaque transoesophagienne et la tomodensitométrie thoracique ont permis un diagnostic précis de masse dans l'artère pulmonaire. Le traitement instauré fut une résection chirurgicale, aidée par une circulation extra corporelle et un arrêt cardiaque en hypothermie, et l'analyse anatomopathologique de la pièce réséquée a décris la présence d'un sarcome peu différencié de l'artère pulmonaire. Quoiqu'un traitement postopératoire complémentaire par chimiothérapie a été entrepris, le pronostic vital du patient reste sombre à moyen terme au vu des données de la littérature. [less ▲]

We report a case of hepatoportal sclerosis in a renal transplant patient treated with azathioprine. The initial symptom was ascites. On the biochemical level, there were cholestasis without cytolysis or hepatocellular insufficiency. A presinusoidal portal hypertension was found on haemodynamic studies, without portal thrombosis at CT-scan. A diagnosis of hepatoportal sclerosis was evoked on histology and attributed to azathioprine. This case gives an illustration of a classical albeit rare complication of azathioprine. The indolent pattern of the disease and the risk of variceal bleeding point out the need for a hepatic follow-up during the treatment. [less ▲]

The intrauterine device (IUD) is a widely used, effective and reversible means of birth control. Its insertion can be associated with perforation of the utuerus. This is a rare complication, but with possible serious clinical consequences. There is an increased risk of uterine perforation if the IUD is inserted during 6 months of post-partum or after uterine evacuation. A follow up by sonography is essential. The surgical removal of the ectopic IUD is imperious. [less ▲]

We report the case of a patient with liver cirrhosis who was admitted to the emergency room for rapid occurrence of dyspnea and severe hypoxemia at rest. Lung CT-scan and echocardiography did not disclose any right-to-left shunt and right-sided heart catheterization evidenced major precapillary pulmonary hypertension. The present feature supports the hypothesis that the pulmonary complications of cirrhosis, the hepatopulmonary syndrome and the portopulmonary hypertension, which are usually considered as mutually exclusive, may coexist. In such circumstances, the right failing heart is the major determinant to the immediate prognosis. [less ▲]

We report a case of spontaneous carotid artery dissection suspected by the appearance of Horner's syndrome. Under medical treatment, the intramural hematoma resolved within 3 months. The patient had an uneventful recovery, without any residual neurologic deficit. Spontaneous arterial dissection is responsible for a hematoma in the arterial wall without significant trauma. The pathogenesis remains unknown. Predisposing factors seem to exist. The clinical presentation is variable mainly due to local compression of adjacent structures which can precede a transient or permanent neurological deficit. The diagnosis is confirmed by Doppler US, CT angiography or magnetic resonance angiography, the best optional investigations. The treatment mainly consists of stroke prevention by anticoagulation versus antiplatelet therapy. The role of surgery and/or endovascular techniques has not yet been confirmed. [less ▲]
