  • Acute Interstitial Nephritis Induced by Clozapine

    Acute interstitial nephritis (AIN) classically presents as acute kidney injury most often induced by offending drugs. Less frequently it is secondary to infections, autoimmune disorders, or idiopathic conditions. Development of drug-related AIN is not dose dependent and a recurrence can occur with re-exposure to the drug.

  • Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy Secondary to Cryptococcal Meningoencephalitis in a Patient With Multiple Sclerosis

    We present a unique case of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy secondary to Cryptococcus neoformans meningoencephalitis in a middle-aged female with a history of multiple sclerosis who was taking immunosuppressive therapy.

  • Pseudoaneurysm Formation After “Preclose”-Assisted Impella Insertion in a Patient With Cardiogenic Shock

    The use of mechanical support devices such as the Impella CP (Abiomed, Danvers, MA) is a growing form of treatment for patients with cardiogenic shock (CS). Despite the increase in usage, there remains a dearth in literature regarding potential complications.

  • Valve-in-Valve Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation With Acute Left and Right Coronary Artery Occlusion: A Case Report

    Acute coronary artery occlusion is a relatively rare procedural adverse event in valve-in-valve transcatheter aortic valve implantation. Here we present a case of a 26-mm Sapien 3 prosthetic valve implantation in a degenerated 23-mm Freedom Solo bioprosthetic surgical valve with subsequent left and right coronary occlusion.

  • Gemella morbillorum as the Culprit Organism of Post-Colonoscopy Necrotizing Perineal Soft Tissue Infection in a Diabetic Patient With Crohn’s Disease

    Gemellsa morbillorum (G. morbillorum) is a Gram-positive facultative anaerobe and a known commensal organism of the oropharyngeal and gastrointestinal tracts. It is considered a rare cause of infections in humans.




Ortner’s Syndrome in an Infant With Congenital Heart Disease

After the last surgery, he was admitted to hospital with fever without a source. Full Text

Unusual Presentation of Isolated Nonbacterial Thrombotic Tricuspid Valve Endocarditis in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus With Secondary Antiphospholipid Syndrome: A Case Report
Nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis (NBTE), or marantic endocarditis, is one of the most prevalent cardiac presentations seen in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). It is a condition that is characterized by noninfectious lesions affecting cardiac valves. The most common sight for this disease to affect is the left-sided mitral and aortic cardiac valves.
