Pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital lung malformation characterized by an abnormal segment of bronchopulmonary tissue supplied by aberrant systemic arteries. Due to the non-specific symptomatology, the diagnosis can be missed. Imaging is the cornerstone of the diagnosis. Complete surgical resection provides the definitive treatment. We report a case of pulmonary sequestration associated with an asymptomatic aspergillosis presenting during adulthood and describe briefly the epidemiology, embryology, histology, imaging and surgical treatment of this congenital abnormality.

This article reports a case of Anton-Babinski syndrome, due to right middle cerebral artery thrombosis and attributed to a likely primary antiphospholipid syndrome. It is always difficult to diagnose the latter, especially in the case of our patient who had a past history of multiple venous thromboses but also a heterozygosity for the mutation of the factor V of Leyden. We reviewed the literature dedicated to the prothrombotic events linked to the presence of these antiphospholipid antibodies: the lupus anticoagulant and the anticardiolipin antibodies. [less ▲]

An episode of fever of prolonged duration and undetermined origin always remains a difficult clinical problem. Several etiologies can indeed be responsible. If one wishes to obtain a diagnosis of the origin of the fever, one should adopt a well-structured strategy in which the various investigations are carried out in a strictly determined hierarchical order. This is badly needed if one wishes to reach a clue to the diagnosis and be able to implement an adequate therapy. In spite of all this, some cases will remain without precise diagnosis. The treatment of those cases will primary be empirical. [less ▲]

We report the case of a 48-year-old man who was admitted to our emergency department because of a superior vena caval syndrome from which the symptoms occurred only during exercise. His past history included an episode of lower limb deep venous thrombosis. Because an atrio-ventricular partial block was fortuitously evidenced, the patient was submitted to a pacemaker insertion. A few years later, the patient suffered from rapid dyspnea on exercise, associated with facial cyanosis and systemic hypotension. The exploration by phlebography evidenced that the inferior vena cava was completely obstructed. Therefore the venous return from the lower part of the body to right heart was obtained through hypertrophy of the vena azygos. In addition, the presence of cardiac pacing electrodes induced a stenosis at the level of the superior vena cava, just before its entrance into the right atrium. Such a venous network accounted for the occurrence of a chronic superior vena caval syndrome associated with peripheral arterial hypotension during exercise. Treatment consisted of a superior vena caval percutaneous transluminal balloon angioplasty followed by a Wallstent insertion. This procedure led to a correction of all hemodynamic abnormalities responsible for reported pathophysiological limitations to stress. [less ▲]

Primary aorto-oesophageal fistula, secondary to an aneurysm of the thoracic aorta, are almost fatal. In the literature, only twenty six successfully operated cases have been reported. We report the case of a 78-year-old man with a thoracic aortic aneurysm eroded into the mid oesophagus. Prompt diagnosis of an aorto-oesophageal fistula resulted from clinical history, CT-imaging and oesophagoscopy. The patient was successfully operated by exclusion of the thoracic aneurysm (insertion of a straight cryopreserved arterial allograft), oesophagectomy and cervical oesophagostomy and jejunostomy. The continuity of the digestive tube was later restored after preliminary aortic valve remplacement (stenosis of 0.8 cm2). This case report is the second in which a cryopreserved allograft was successfully implanted in the management of a primary aorto-oesophageal fistula. [less ▲]

Pulmonary aspergillosis are uncommon diseases. The clinical expression of which are depending on the immunological status. The spectrum of pulmonary aspergillosis goes from hypersensitization to the invasive and disseminated aspergillosis. We report here the clinical history of a patient with severe COPD and receiving regular oral corticoids who had a persistent lung infiltration. The infiltration became cavitary and proved to be a chronic necrotizing pneumonia due to Aspegillus fumigatus. The outcome was favourable thank to a treatment with voriconazole. [less ▲]

Advanced non-small-cell lung cancers are diseases of late diagnosis with bad prognosis. Conventional chemotherapies are not very efficient. Over the last years, many research works have been performed in this way to improve prognosis. Targeted therapies seem promising. They were notably developed against epithelial growth factor receptors and tumoral angiogenesis. We report here the clinical history of a patient with an advanced non-small-cell lung cancer presenting an exceptional response to small-molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitors. [less ▲]

Basal cell carcinomas (BCC) are the most common malignant neoplasms in humans. Clinical misdiagnoses are not uncommon. These cancers are classified according to their histological and clinical characteristics which exhibit distinct malignant behaviours. It is important to be aware of the different clinical presentations both for the accurate diagnosis and tumour management. We report the case of a 78-year-old man, who presented an unusual pedunculated and pigmented BCC. This combined aspect is rarely encountered. [less ▲]

The authors describe the case of a 17-year-old girl who suffered from end-stage liver failure due to chronic autoimmune hepatitis. Liver failure was complicated by severe portal hypertension, hypersplenism and refractory ascites. Liver transplantation was indicated. She was listed for cadaveric whole liver transplantation, but her infrequent blood group (B) increased waiting time. Her condition deteriorated to Child C liver failure and living related liver transplant was considered. Her father was compatible and proposed himself for donation. Right lobe procurement was decided in order to provide sufficient liver mass. No transfusion of red cells, platelets, or fresh frozen plasma was used either in the donor or the recipient. Both recipient and donor left the ward at postoperative day 14, without complication. They were both asymptomatic and with normal liver tests at one year follow-up. Living related liver transplantation using the right lobe may offer an alternative to liver transplant candidates in this period of organ donor shortage. [less ▲]
