Pseudochylothorax in pleural effusion due to coronary artery bypass surgery. (1/145)

This study describes a 64-yr-old male with a chronic left pleural effusion following a coronary artery bypass 3 yrs earlier. On thoracocentesis, turbid fluid was obtained with crystals of cholesterol on microscopic examination, establishing the diagnosis of pseudochylothorax. The pleural fluid cholesterol level was 207 mg x dL(-1) (5.36 mmol x L(-1)). This is the first report of pseudochylothorax in a chronic pleural effusion due to coronary artery bypass surgery.  (+info)

Chylothorax after myocardial revascularization with the left internal thoracic artery. (3/145)

A 38-year-old male underwent coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). A saphenous vein graft was attached to the left marginal branch. The left internal thoracic artery was anastomosed to the left anterior descending artery (LAD). The early recovery was uneventful and the patient was discharged on the 5th postoperative day. After three months, he came back to the hospital complaining of weight loss, weakness, and dyspnea on mild exertion. Chest X-rays showed left pleural effusion. On physical examination, a decreased vesicular murmur was detected. After six days, the diagnosis of chylothorax was made after a milky fluid was detected in the plural cavity and total pulmonary expansion did not occur. On the next day, both anterior and posterior pleural drainage were performed by videothoracoscopy, and prolonged parenteral nutrition (PPN) was instituted for ten days. After seven days the patient was put on a low-fat diet for 8 days. The fluid accumulation ceased, the drains were removed and the patient was discharged with normal pulmonary expansion.  (+info)

Fatal bilateral chylothorax in mice lacking the integrin alpha9beta1. (4/145)

Members of the integrin family of adhesion receptors mediate both cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions and have been shown to play vital roles in embryonic development, wound healing, metastasis, and other biological processes. The integrin alpha9beta1 is a receptor for the extracellular matrix proteins osteopontin and tenacsin C and the cell surface immunoglobulin vascular cell adhesion molecule-1. This receptor is widely expressed in smooth muscle, hepatocytes, and some epithelia. To examine the in vivo function of alpha9beta1, we have generated mice lacking expression of the alpha9 subunit. Mice homozygous for a null mutation in the alpha9 subunit gene appear normal at birth but develop respiratory failure and die between 6 and 12 days of age. The respiratory failure is caused by an accumulation of large volumes of pleural fluid which is rich in triglyceride, cholesterol, and lymphocytes. alpha9(-/-) mice also develop edema and lymphocytic infiltration in the chest wall that appears to originate around lymphatics. alpha9 protein is transiently expressed in the developing thoracic duct at embryonic day 14, but expression is rapidly lost during later stages of development. Our results suggest that the alpha9 integrin is required for the normal development of the lymphatic system, including the thoracic duct, and that alpha9 deficiency could be one cause of congenital chylothorax.  (+info)

Paragonimiasis miyazakii associated with bilateral pseudochylothorax. (5/145)

A 37-year-old man who suffered from bilateral pleural effusions, subcutaneous abdominal induration and blood eosinophilia, was admitted to our hospital. He had ingested raw crabs at a pub-restaurant before the onset of his symptoms. His pleural effusions were chyliform containing cholesterol crystals, and a high level of immunoglobulin E (36,580 IU/ml) and anti-Paragonimus miyazakii antibody were detected. He was effectively treated with praziquantel. This case suggests that paragonimiasis should be strongly suspected if blood eosinophilia, pseudochylothorax, and a high level of immunoglobulin E in pleural effusion are detected.  (+info)

Pulmonary lymphangiomyomatosis (LAM) developing chylothorax. (6/145)

We describe a case of pulmonary lymphangiomyomatosis (LAM) with chylothorax that developed in a 46-year-old Japanese woman. This patient exhibited clinical symptoms of dyspnea and chest X-ray showed right pleural effusion. Thoracocentesis demonstrated chylous effusion. Chest computed tomography (CT) scan revealed multiple cystic lesions. Subsequent thoracoscopy revealed the chylorrhea from swelled vessels on the diaphragm. The clinical diagnosis, based on histological examinations with biopsy specimens obtained by thoracoscopy, was pulmonary LAM. Although the hormone therapy was not effective, chylous effusion was improved by the pleurodesis. Pulmonary LAM developing chylothorax is rare in Japan.  (+info)

Thoracoscopic ligation of the thoracic duct. (7/145)

OBJECTIVE: When nonoperative treatment of chylothorax fails, thoracic duct ligation is usually performed through a thoracotomy. We describe two cases of persistent chylothorax, in a child and an adult, successfully treated with thoracoscopic ligation of the thoracic duct. METHODS: A 4-year-old girl developed a right chylothorax following a Fontan procedure. Aggressive nonoperative management failed to eliminate the persistent chyle loss. A 72-year-old insulin-dependent diabetic man was involved in a motor vehicle accident, in which he sustained multiple fractured ribs, a right hemopneumothorax, a right femoral shaft fracture, and a T-11 thoracic vertebral fracture. Subsequently, he developed a right chylothorax, which did not respond to nonoperative management. Both patients were successfully treated with thoracoscopic ligation of the thoracic duct. RESULTS: The child had significant decrease of chyle drainage following surgery. Increased drainage that appeared after the introduction of full feedings five days postoperatively was controlled with the somatostatin analog octreotide. The chest tube was removed two weeks after surgery. After two years' follow-up, she has had no recurrence of chylothorax. The adult had no chyle drainage following surgery. He was maintained on a medium-chain triglyceride diet postoperatively for two weeks. The chest tube was removed four days after surgery. After six months' follow-up, he has had no recurrence of chylothorax. CONCLUSIONS: Thoracoscopic ligation of the thoracic duct provides a safe and effective treatment of chylothorax and may avoid thoracotomy and its associated morbidity.  (+info)

Video-assisted thoracic surgery for the management of pleural and pericardial effusion in Behcet's syndrome. (8/145)

A 28-year-old man, who presented with pleural and pericardial chylous effusion secondary to superior vena cava syndrome, was diagnosed with Behcet's syndrome. A pericardial window was created by video-assisted thoracic surgery to relieve cardiac tamponade, and this technique also enabled lung biopsy, pleural abrasion, and drainage of the pleural effusion. We report this case because of its rarity. To the best of our knowledge, the literature contains no other report of the use of video-assisted thoracic surgery for creating a pericardial window for the treatment of cardiac tamponade in a case of Behcet's syndrome.  (+info)

The authors present a 71-year-old woman who had a right chylothorax after right upper lobectomy for lung cancer. As the chylothorax was considered to be due to thoracic duct injury at the time of operation, lymphoscintigraphy was performed by oral administration of I-123 beta-methyl-iodophenyl pentadecanoic acid (BMIPP). After visualization of the stomach and intestine, abnormal accumulation of the radiotracer was found initially around the right pulmonary hilum and then spread laterally in the upper pleural cavity, indicating chyle leakage in the region of the right pulmonary hilum. Scintigraphic finding was well correlated with the subsequent thoracoscopic observation, showing chyle leakage from a lymphatic tributary near its confluence to the thoracic duct at the level of the azygos continuation. The disruption site was ligated by video-assisted-thoracoscopic-surgery procedure with successful termination of the chyle leakage. Lymphoscintigraphy by oral administration of I-123 BMIPP is thought to be a
Chylothorax is an extremely rare and serious complication of cardiac surgery, with a poor outcome unless treated at the right time and in the right way. We report a case of a 76-year-old female who developed chylothorax after coronary artery bypass grafting. The chylothorax was successfully treated in 7 days by octreotide administration and medium-chain triglycerides enriched diet.
Central vein thrombosis as a cause of chylothorax is uncommon, and in a few cases in the literature was related to thrombotic complications of central venous access devices (CVAD). Superior vena cava (SVC) occlusion-induced chylothorax has been described in adult sickle cell disease (SCD) in a setting of chronic indwelling CVAD. There are limited reports on chylothorax induced by central venous thrombosis secondary to chronic CVAD in children with SCD. We describe an 8-year-old male patient, with a history of SCD, maintained on long term erythrocytapheresis for primary prevention of stroke, and whose clinical course was complicated by chylothorax which was successfully treated with a pleuroperitoneal shunt ...

Introduction. Chylous effusions, particularly chylothorax, are frequently reported in dogs and cats. Chyle is the term used to denote lymphatic fluid arising from the intestine and therefore containing a high quantity of fat. Chyle is normally transported to the venous system by a network of lymphatics in the mesentery (intestinal trunk). These lymphatics arborize in the cisterna chyli, a large dilated sac that lies adjacent to the aorta at L1-L4. The thoracic duct (TD) is the cranial continuation of the cisterna chyli and is generally said to begin between the crura of the diaphragm. In dogs (cats), the thoracic duct lies between the aorta and the azygous vein on the right side (left side) of the thorax and terminates in the venous system of the neck (left external jugular vein or jugulo-subclavian angle). Regardless of the etiology, chylothorax is a potentially devastating disease. Chylothorax results in both compromised respiration and debilitation because of loss of large amounts of ...

Introduction: Chylothorax is a rare, but serious complication after congenital heart surgery in neonates. Management of this condition has been hampered by poor understanding of pathophysiology and limited therapeutic options. Lymphatic imaging could help to diagnose and guide therapy.. Methods: A five week old infant developed chylothorax after Norwood operation for Hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Initially, chyloascites and bilateral chylothoraces occurred. Medical management with inotropes, supportive therapy and Octreotide infusions failed. Non-invasive near-infrared fluorescence lymphatic imaging (NIRFLI) at the bedside was used to determine whether thoracic duct ligation or pleurodesis would restore normal drainage. After an emergency IRB and FDA approvals, indocyanine green was injected intradermally (0.025 - 0.05 ml of 0.25 mg/ml solution) in the left and right feet as well as left hand.. Result: NIRFLI showed that lymph flow from the feet stopped at the level of both groins. From left ...
AbstractCHYLOTHORAX is produced by interruption of the thoracic duct above the aortic hiatus with fistulous communication into a thoracic space. Such a condition is serious and will prove fatal in a high percentage of cases unless adequate treatment is instituted. A review of medical literature suggests considerable variation in opinion as to clinical management of this complication.Etiology: Chylothorax is usually produced by direct trauma to the thoracic duct. Until recently the chief offenders have been penetrating wounds inflicted by bullet, steel fragment or knife. Fractures of the vertebral column and severe compression injuries of the thorax have resulted in interruption of the duct. Neoplasms involving the posterior mediastinum may be capable of producing chylothorax; care must be taken, however, to distinguish between chyle and a chyliform effusion. In recent years an increasing number of surgical procedures have been employed involving the posterior mediastinum; splanch-nicectomy,
PREVENTION:. In many cats, the underlying cause of chylothorax is never determined, and therefore, cannot be prevented.. Chylothorax can occur as a symptom of heart failure caused by heartworm disease. Discuss heartworm prevention with your veterinarian.. PROGNOSIS:. There is a good prognosis with treatment to stabilize breathing and for any underlying conditions.. Since the excess liquid irritates the heart and lungs, scar tissue may form. It will press on the lungs, causing breathing difficulty and long-term damage. Therefore, you must go to the veterinarian as soon as you notice signs.. ...

Chylotorax is a relatively uncommon and difficult to treat complication after esophagectomy for cancer. We report a case of a young adult male who underwent neoadjuvant chemoradiationtherapy followed by Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy for a squamous-cell carcinoma of the distal esophagus. During the postoperative course the patient presented recurrent episodes of hemodynamic instability mimicking cardiac tamponade, secondary to compression of the left pulmonary vein and the left atrium by a mediastinal chylocele. Mediastinal drainage and ligation of the cisterna chyli and the thoracic duct was successfully performed through a transhiatal approach.
A chylothorax is a collection of fluid around the lungs that can occur after cardiac surgery. The fluid contains chyle, a milky fluid consisting of fat droplets. The standard treatment is to feed an infant with a specialized low fat formula for up to 6 weeks until the chest has time to heal. This formula is generally not well tolerated and mothers of our patients have expressed a desire to continue using breast milk. A few case reports have been published, but there have not been any studies to date looking at this. Data will be collected to include information about nutrition, weight gain, teaching needs, surgical, hospital, and discharge information ...

Gorhams disease is a rare bone disorder that is characterized by bone loss (osteolysis), often associated with swelling or abnormal blood vessel growth (angiomatous proliferation). Bone loss can occur in just one bone, or spread to soft tissue and adjacent bones. It may affect any part of the skeleton, but most commonly involves the skull, shoulder, and pelvis. The cause of Gorhams disease is currently unknown. Most cases occur randomly. Treatment is based on the signs and symptoms present in each affected person, and most commonly involves surgery and/or radiation therapy. In some cases, Gorhams disease improves without treatment (spontaneous remission ...
Gorhams disease (pronounced GOR-amz), also known as Gorham vanishing bone disease and phantom bone disease, is a very rare skeletal condition of unknown cause, characterized by the uncontrolled proliferation of distended, thin-walled vascular or lymphatic channels within bone, which leads to resorption and replacement of bone with angiomas and/or fibrosis. Current treatments are experimental only. The symptoms of Gorhams disease vary depending on the bones involved. It may affect any part of the skeleton, but the most common sites of disease are the shoulder, skull, pelvic girdle, jaw, ribs, and spine. In some cases there are no symptoms until a fracture occurs either spontaneously or following minor trauma, such as a fall. There may be an acute onset of localized pain and swelling. More commonly there is pain of no apparent cause that increases in frequency and intensity over time and may eventually be accompanied by weakness and noticeable deformity of the area. The rate of progression is ...
Gorhams (GOR-amz) disease is a very rare skeletal condition of uncertain etiology, characterized by the uncontrolled proliferation of distended, thin-walled vascular or lymphatic channels within bone, which leads to resorption and replacement of bone with angiomas and/or fibrosis.1, 2 Because of the loss of the affected bone, the condition has been referred to as disappearing bone disease, vanishing bone disease, and massive osteolysis. In medical terminology osteolysis means: bone (osteo) breaking down or destruction (lysis).. The first known report of the condition came in 1838 in an article titled "A Boneless Arm" in what was then The Boston Medical and Surgical Journal, now The New England Journal of Medicine.3 It is a brief but fascinating report chronicling the case of Mr. Brown who had, in 1819 at age 18 years, broken his right upper arm in an accident. The patient suffered two subsequent accidents, which fractured the arm twice more "before the curative process had been completed." At ...

Also called disappearing bone disease. Extensive loss of calcium from a single bone so that it cannot be seen on x-ray. Any bone can be involved but the upper arm, shoulder, and jaw are most frequent. This type of selective decalcification is sometimes associated with the presence of an hemangioma, a knot of distended blood vessels. The synonyms for this condition include invisible bone disease, vanishing bone disease, phantom bone disease and massive osteolysis.

We report the first case of mosaic trisomy 21 with non-immune hydrops fetalis and bilateral chylothoraces. Prenatal fetal blood karyotype analysis of 15 fetal cells revealed a 46,XX karyotype. Aggressive prenatal management, including fetal thoracocentesis and pleuro-amniotic shunt, was performed. A clinical phenotype of Down syndrome was apparent after the gross oedema had subsided. Subsequent chromosome study of neonatal blood lymphocytes showed mosaic trisomy 21 with 23 per cent trisomic cells. Review of the initial fetal blood sample identified trisomy in 5 per cent of 134 cells. Follow-up study at five months showed no trisomy 21 in 100 cells. This case illustrates the variable levels of mosaicism manifest in the peripheral blood of an infant with obvious Down syndrome phenotype, and the limitation of cytogenetic analysis of peripheral lymphocytes alone in prenatal and postnatal detection of low levels of mosaicism ...
Ultrasonography of the cisterna chyli has been used in humans to diagnose increased lymphatic flow or lymph flow obstruction and to guide percutaneous embolization of the thoracic duct via the cisterna chyli. The aim of this study was to describe the ultrasonographic characteristics of the dorsal portion of cisterna chyli in dogs and cats with chylous ascites or chylothorax and in a group of healthy dogs and cats. The aorta and the cranial mesenteric artery were used as anatomic landmarks. Ultrasonography was performed before and 2 h after a fatty meal in healthy dogs and cats. The visualized structure was confirmed to be a dilated cisterna chyli at necropsy in a dog with chylous ascites. The confirmed or presumed cisterna chyli was consistently detected using ultrasonography in nonfasted healthy animals and clinically affected animals and appeared as an anechoic tubular structure, without detectable flow, at the right dorsolateral aspect of the aorta. It had a similar ultrasonographic ...
Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a condition that affects the lungs, the kidneys, and the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system consists of a network of vessels that transport lymph fluid and immune cells throughout the body. Lymph fluid helps exchange immune cells, proteins, and other substances between the blood and tissues.. LAM is found almost exclusively in women. It often occurs as a feature of an inherited syndrome called tuberous sclerosis complex. When LAM occurs alone it is called isolated or sporadic LAM.. Signs and symptoms of LAM most often appear during a womans thirties. Affected women have an overgrowth of abnormal smooth muscle-like cells (LAM cells) in the lungs, resulting in the formation of lung cysts and the destruction of normal lung tissue. They may also have an accumulation of fluid in the cavity around the lungs (chylothorax).. The lung abnormalities resulting from LAM may cause difficulty breathing (dyspnea), chest pain, and coughing, which may bring up blood ...

I am working on a Care Plan for school and I cannot come up with Nursing Diagnosis for a pt with bilateral pleural effusions. Any suggestions?
Lymphangiomatosis (LYMF) is a condition where a lymphangioma is not present in a single localised mass, but in a widespread or multifocal manner. It is a rare type of tumor which results from an abnormal development of the lymphatic system. It is thought to be the result of congenital errors of lymphatic development occurring prior to the 20th week of gestation. Lymphangiomatosis is a condition marked by the presence of cysts that result from an increase both in the size and number of thin-walled lymphatic channels that are abnormally interconnected and dilated. 75% of cases involve multiple organs. It typically presents by age 20 and, although it is technically benign, these deranged lymphatics tend to invade surrounding tissues and cause problems due to invasion and/or compression of adjacent structures. The condition is most common in the bones and lungs and shares some characteristics with Gorhams disease. Up to 75% of patients with lymphangiomatosis have bone involvement, leading some to ...
Chylopericardium is a rare clinical entity in which chylous fluid accumulates in the pericardial cavity. This entity results from thoracic duct disruption or obstruction, with both inadequate collateral drainage and reflux of chylous lymph through the lymphatics draining the heart and pericardium [3]. Secondary chylopericardium is frequently caused by disruption or obstruction of the thoracic duct as a result of thoracic or cardiac surgery, chest trauma, mediastinal neoplasms, mediastinal tuberculosis, or mediastinal radiotherapy, and it is occasionally a consequence of thrombosis of the subclavian vein.. Hasebrock was the first to describe the presence of 22.6 ml of chyle in the pericardial cavity [4], detected during the autopsy of a man who had died from asphyxia secondary to constriction and tracheal ulceration. The term "primary chylopericardium" was first used by Groves and Effler [5], who described a case of isolated accumulation of chyle in a 31-year-old woman who was found to have ...
A patient undergoing evaluation for malignant melanoma was thought to have a metastatic process involving the anterior mediastinum, axilla, spleen, and possibly liver based on radiologic findings from positron emission tomography and computed tomography scans. The clinical picture did not corroborate this suspicion, and biopsies ultimately confirmed lymphangioma in "the accessory spleen and subcutaneous tissues, leading to a diagnosis of lymphangiomatosis. Diagnosis and management of lymphangiomatosis is clinically challenging. This report reviews the literature on the pathology, diagnostic imaging, and management of lymphangiomatosis ...

The purpose of this chapter is to unite information which is otherwise spread across numerous sources. The main audience would probably be the supervisor of training who, upon arriving at work one morning, is greeted by an enthusiastic trainee brandishing the WCA form and demanding to undergo assessment. The supervisor, unprepared for this and possibly hung over, will be unlikely to agree unless a scripted resource is available for them where all the information necessary to answer the WCA questions is available. This chapter is that resource. All the important areas are covered.
Four types of fluid can occupy the pleural space: serous fluid (hydrothorax), blood (hemothorax), lipid (chylothorax), and pus (empyema). Once the presence of a pleural effusion is established, it is important to determine whether it is a transudate or an exudate. A transudative pleural effusion indicates the presence of a systemic process, implicating organ systems other than the lung. This transudative pleural effusion is caused by medical conditions that lead to volume overload, such as renal failure, heart failure, and hypoalbuminemia (Table 127-1). In contrast, exudative pleural effusions indicate a local pleural process and necessitate a different treatment approach (Table 127-2). In 1972, Light defined the classic criteria for distinguishing between exudative and transudative pleural effusions.1 To qualify as an exudate, the pleural effusion must meet one of the following criteria: pleural fluid lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) greater than 200 IU/L, ratio of pleural fluid LDH to serum LDH ...
The clinical features of chylothorax depend on the rate of chyle accumulation in the pleural space as well as the concomitant effect of the etiology. The presentation of non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) depends upon the type of lymphoma and the areas of involvement. Some NHLs behave indolently while others are very aggressive. Aggressive lymphomas present acutely or subacutely with a rapidly growing mass, systemic B symptoms (ie, fever, night sweats, weight loss), and/or elevated serum LDH and uric acid. Lymphomas with aggressive presentation include diffuse large B cell lymphoma, Burkitt lymphoma, adult T cell leukemia-lymphoma, and precursor B and T lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma. Indolent lymphomas, like in our patient, are often insidious, presenting with slow growing lymphadenopathy, hepato-splenomegaly, or cytopenias. Lymphomas with indolent presentation include follicular lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma, and splenic marginal zone lymphoma (10 ...

The apparent cardiomegaly is due to the apposition of pleural fluid over the cardiac shadow in the upright chest radiograph. This happens occasionally and you can see two examples in Diploma case 85. I dont know if this has been reported in the literature.. Final diagnosis: carcinoma with collapse of LUL and pleural effusion simulating cardiomegaly.. Congratulations to TR, who was the first to suggest the diagnosis, although the rest of you did very well too.. Teaching point: it is important to recognise the signs of LUL collapse in the PA view, because carcinoma is the most common etiology. An added bonus in this case is remembering that left pleural effusion may simulate cardiomegaly in the upright PA view ...

An 86-year-old man presented to our emergency department with fever that he had been experiencing for days. His body temperature was 38.6°C (101.5°F), heart rate was 86 bpm, and blood pressure was 96/50 mm Hg. There was no chest pain, back pain, or abdominal discomfort. Previous medical history included type II diabetes mellitus and prostate cancer under hormonal therapy. Decreased left breathing sound was noted. Initial laboratory studies revealed leukocytosis, elevated C-reactive protein, and acute renal failure. A chest x-ray disclosed a massive amount of left pleural effusion. A thoracocentesis was performed, and the fluid was pus-like exudates. Transverse, sagittal, and coronal views of noncontrast chest computed tomography are shown in Figure A, B, and C, respectively (see also Movies I through III in the online-only Data Supplement). Periaortic foamy air collection was found up to the arch and down to the infrarenal abdominal aorta. Aortic wall invasion was observed in a segment of ...

Re-explore the depth of the right and left costodiaphragmatic recesses. Realize that during normal respiration, the inferior border of a lung does not completely fill this space. To verify the inferior extent of this the costodiaphragmatic recess, identify the 9th intercostal space (ICS) in the mid-axillary line and pass a probe horizontally through the chest wall at this level. As you do this, review the layers of the chest wall through which the probe passes. This site is clinically important because it can be used to safely drain excess fluid from the pleural cavities during thoracocentesis.. Links and References: ...

Empyema is pus in the pleural space. A parapneumonic effusion is a pleural effusion associated with a lung infection, usually pneumonia but infrequently a lung abscess. Bacterial pneumonia with a parapneumonic effusion is the most common precursor, seen in about 60% of empyema patients.1 Other causes of empyema are complications of chest surgery (22%), trauma (4%), esophageal perforation (4%), complications of chest tube/thoracentesis (4%), an extension from a subdiaphragmatic infection (3%), and assorted triggers (7%), including a hemothorax, chylothorax, or hydrothorax that becomes infected due to a systemic infection with hematogenous spread such as septicemia.1,2 ...
The syndrome of acute spontaneous absorption of bone is a rather rare and poorly understood condition. It is often referred to under such descriptive titles as "disappearing bone," "acute spontaneous absorption of bone," "phantom bone" and "idiopathic osteolysis of bone." In the cases reported to date, several common factors seem to occur repeatedly: The patient is usually a young adult in good general health; minor trauma, usually to the affected area, calls attention to the lesion; pain is not a striking symptom; there is no sex predilection. The course of the disease is variable. Cases have been reported where the ...

Chylous ascites is a rare finding that was shown in a study by Press and colleagues to occur with an incidence of approximately 1 in 20,000 admissions to a large university-based hospital over a 20-year period [4]. However, it is widely believed that the incidence of chylous ascites has increased because of more aggressive cardiothoracic and abdominal surgery as well as the longer survival of patients with cancer [5]. Chylous ascites can be caused by any of 3 mechanisms: obstruction of the major lymphatic channels at the base of the mesentery or the cisterna chyli, which causes leakage of chyle from dilated mesenteric lymphatic vessels; direct leakage of chyle through a lymphoperitoneal fistula created by abnormal or injured retroperitoneal lymphatic vessels; or the exudation of chyle through the retroperitoneal megalymphatic vessels without a visible fistula or obstruction of the thoracic duct [6]. Chylous ascites is caused by an abdominal malignacy or cirrhosis in more than two-thirds of all ...

Our findings suggest that long term MP therapy may be an effective treatment for the POEMS syndrome. This therapy enhanced survival and lessened the neuropathy and other symptoms, whereas most patients treated without long term chemotherapy died within a few years. It is notable that, unlike multiple myeloma, most of the deaths were due to intractable pleural effusion and ascites that resulted in multiorgan failure, rather than to tumour expansion or metastasis, bone marrow suppression, or amyloidosis. Although the causes of the features of this syndrome are unknown, a humoral substance, probably secreted by plasma cells, is considered responsible for multisystem dysfunction,4 15 17 which may bring on a fatal endocrinological crisis in the course of the POEMS syndrome. This is consistent with the report of Nakanishi et al 2 that 34 of 58 Japanese patients with POEMS syndrome died within a mean survival period of 33 months and that most died of heart failure. We consider that the POEMS syndrome ...

I really like the way this poem uses repetition. I have tried to use this method in writing my own poems and it just doesnt come out very well. This author however uses this method to subtly and obviously emphasize certain phrases at the same time. I say subtle because the placements of the phrases are seemingly random but actually very strategic (not always the first or last line of the poem). I say obviously because they are obviously repeated. The poem itself reminds me of the object poem that we wrote in class. The author seems to take a simple thing as a cup of water and turn it into this beautiful poem. This idea of a simple cup and the use of repetition sort of work together to give this poem a very clever kind of ring to it. Two phrases are repeated throughout and they come together at the last two lines of the poem. This effect kind of gives the poem a light and "told you so" kind of feeling. Like this is what the poem was trying to say simply all along. ...

Case History: 4-years old normal short haired European type of female cat was presented to the clinic with sever dyspnoea and cyanotic mucous membranes. At the time the cat hospitalized she showed a severely disturbed general state. The cat was so apathetic and during percussion horizontal dullness was detected. Other organs out of thorax didnt show abnormalities. An intravenous catheter was installed for medication and blood sample were taken for hematology examination. Additional clinical examination like Thoracic radiography revealed lift-sided blurring of the thorax indicative for pleural effusion. By thoracocentesis purulent greenish fluid was obtained. The result of the cytological examination was septic exudates in pleural cavity. Diagnosis: Septic pleuritis (pyothorax) which is characterized by the presence of septic exudates and consequently bacterial contamination of the pleural cavity.. Treatment: Involves antibiotics, drainage of the pleural cavity and supportive care. e.g., ...
