Delayed radiation enteritis is an intestinal fibrosis induced by accidental or therapeutic radiation for pelvic and abdominal cancer treatments. First, a pravastatin curative gift leads to a fibro-lysis involving an inhibition of Rho and in cascade a reduction of CTGF expression and extracellular matrix deposition.

The data suggest that reversal of established radiation fibrosis in the gut is possible. Second, a pravastatin prophylactic gift prevents the installation of a chronic fibrosis but does not protect the tumor. On the base of these results, the radiation therapy department of the Institut Gustave Roussy will soon initiate 2 clinical trials. Radiation retinopathy; Les retinopathies radio-induites.

Radiation retinopathy is a retinal micro-angiopathy, observed after irradiation of the eye. It can rarely lead to neo-vascular glaucoma and enucleation due to pain. It is due to a progressive retinal capillary then vascular occlusion. Total irradiation dose, dose fraction, and surface of the irradiated retina seem to be strong predictive factors for radiation retinopathy. Patients who underwent an irradiation near the eye skull base tumors, nasal and paranasal tumors, or brain tumors should be followed by periodic ophthalmologic examination to detect and treat when necessary the non perfusion areas.

Autoantibodies in cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis. Directory of Open Access Journals Sweden. The cause of the injury is unknown, but the identification of serum autoantibodies makes an autoimmune aetiology attractive. The core study on which this commentary is based used novel cloning and serum screening technologies in order to identify new public and private autoantibodies in sera from 12 patients with CFA.

Largely negative conclusions were drawn from that study. However, we suggest that the prevalence of autoantibodies may have been underestimated, that the study was timely and that this approach is worth pursuing further. Frontal fibrosing alopecia treatment options. Frontal fibrosing alopecia FFA is a rare dermatologic disease that causes scarring and hair loss and is increasing in prevalence worldwide. FFA patients typically present with hair loss in the frontal scalp region and eyebrows which may be associated with sensations of itching or burning.

FFA is a clinically distinct variant of lichen planopilaris LPP that affects predominantly postmenopausal women, although men and premenopausal women may also be affected. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment are necessary to prevent definitive scarring and permanent hair loss.

Data from retrospective studies indicate that 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors 5aRIs are effective in stabilizing the disease. In our clinical experience, we have seen optimal results treating FFA patients with oral finasteride in conjunction with hydroxychloroquine, topical calcineurin inhibitors tacrolimus and excimer laser in patients with signs of active inflammation. Tratamiento de la parasitosis intestinales frecuentes en Colombia. Molecular Targets for the Treatment of Fibrosing Cholangiopathies.

Emerging pathophysiologic insights are leading to novel approaches to treating fibrosing cholangiopathies. The current treatment, using ursodeoxycholic acid UDCAmay slow the progression of some chronic cholangiopathies but cannot heal them. Apart from immunosuppressive interventions aimed at.

Case Report and Literature Review. Full Text Available Fibrosing mediastinitis is a rare condition defined by the presence of fibrotic mediastinal infiltrates that obliterate normal fat planes. It is a late complication of a previous granulomatous infection, such as histoplasmosis or tuberculosis TB. Due to its rarity, fibrosing mediastinitis is often under-recognized, and the clinical presentation is variable and dependent on the extent of infiltration or encasement of structures within the mediastinum.


We present a case of fibrosing mediastinitis in a man with a prior history of TB, who presented with progressive dyspnea and was found to have chronic mediastinal soft tissue opacities and pulmonary hypertension.

Fibrosing mediastinitis is a rare entity usually caused by granulomatous disease. Most cases develop as a late complication of histoplasmosis or TB. The presence of calcified mediastinal soft tissue infiltrates on advanced chest imaging can be diagnostic of fibrosing mediastinitis in patients with a prior history of a granulomatous infection once active processes such as malignancy are excluded. Fibrosing mediastinitis is a rare condition defined by the presence of fibrotic mediastinal infiltrates that obliterate normal fat planes.

Pulmonary Function Tests National En general, existe evidencia de que pacientes con EII tienen una mayor tasa de complicaciones durante el embarazo con respecto a pacientes sin EII. Sin embargo es importante considerar las opciones caso a caso. Successful Stenting of the Pulmonary Artery. Full Text Available Fibrosing mediastinitis is a rare benign condition, which can cause compression of the pulmonary or systemic vessels, tracheobronchial tree, coronary arteries or esophagus, leading to disabling clinical symptoms and even death.

babesia canis canis: Topics by

The case of a year-old woman who presented with dyspnea is described. The stenosis was managed successfully with an endovascular Palmaz-Schatz stent, and the patient remains symptom-free 10 years later. A cause of obstructive jaundice in childhood.

Idiopathic fibrosing pancreatitis is a chronic process of unknown etiology characterized by extensive infiltration of the pancreatic parenchyma by fibrous tissue. This disease process is uncommon in the pediatric patient and is consequently rarely considered in the differential diagnosis of abdominal pain and jaundice in the child.

Hemorragias nasales

The sonographic demonstration of a dilated biliary tree and common bile duct compressed by an enlarged pancreas may be the first suggestion of this entity. Two patients with idiopathic fibrosing pancreatitis and obstructive jaundice are reported with a review of the clinical, radiographic, and pathologic findings.

De nationale en internationale richtlijnen zijn hierover niet eenduidig. Khalid Khattala, Youssef Bouabdallah. Pan African Medical Journal ; Localization fibrosing epstaxis causing pulmonary infraction: A year-old female patient visited our emergency room for hemoptysis and refractory chest wall pain of 2 months duration.

She had no history of smoking or other medical conditions. Chest CT scan showed homogenously enhancing soft tissue mass without calcification at the left pulmonary hilum.

Encasing and compression of the left lower pulmonary artery by the mass had resulted in pulmonary infarction in xausas left lower lobe. Laboratory tests for tuberculosis, fungus, and vasculitis were all negative. The patient underwent surgical biopsy and resection of infarcted left lower lobe that was histopathologically confirmed as fibrosing mediastinitis.

Herein, we reported a rare case of surgically confirmed and treated localized fibrosing mediastinitis causing pulmonary infarction. Ventilation perfusion radionuclide imaging in cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis. Scans were classified according to the presence, severity and degree of matching of defects in ventilation and perfusion images and the results were compared with the data obtained from lung function tests. The appearances were atypical of pulmonary embolism in eight patients.

Cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis and lung cancer: The risk of lung cancer caysas often reported to be increased for patients with cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis CFA.

Observed deaths due to lung cancer were compared with expected deaths using age- sex- and period-adjusted national rates. The roles of reported asbestos exposure and smoking were also investigated. The standardised mortality ratio SMR was 7.

Stratified analysis showed increased lung cancer mortality among younger subjects, men and ever smokers. A controlled study of respiratory gas exchange and xenon clearance from exercising muscle. Aerobic fitness was evaluated in 25 women with fibrositisby having them exercise to volitional exhaustion on an electronically braked cycle ergometer. Compared with matched sedentary controls, fibrositis patients accurately perceived their level of exertion ce relation to oxygen consumption and attained a similar level of lactic acidosis, as assessed by their respiratory quotient and ventilatory threshold.


Exercising muscle blood flow was estimated by xenon clearance in a subgroup of 16 fibrositis patients and compared with that in 16 matched sedentary controls; the fibrositis patients exhibited reduced xenon clearance. These results indicate a need to include aerobic fitness as a matched variable in future controlled studies of fibrositis and suggest that the detraining phenomenon may be of relevance to the etiopathogenesis of the disease. La alta frecuencia de H. PET scanning of macrophages in patients with scleroderma eb alveolitis.

Assessment of disease activity in fibrosing alveolitis due to systemic sclerosis FASSc is difficult without using invasive investigation. A repeatable noninvasive method of assessing disease at a cellular level such as with positron emission tomography PET could be of great value in evaluating high-resolution changes in the pathological process.

To investigate whether the level of inflammatory cell traffic and lung density in FASSc, imaged in vivo by PET, is different to controls and whether they are associated with changes in pulmonary function indices. Fifteen patients with FASSc were compared to seven controls. We used Acusas to measure lung density and tissue uptake of 11 C-[R]-PK, a ligand that binds to receptors found in abundance in macrophages.

Prevalence of asymptomatic coronary disease in fibrosing idiopathic interstitial pneumonias.

psrros Because of growing body of interest on the association between fibrosing idiopathic interstitial pneumonias f-IIP and ischaemic heart disease, we initiated this prospective study to evaluate the prevalence of asymptomatic coronary artery disease CAD in patients with f-IIP.

Forty-two patients with f-IIP underwent noninvasive screening for CAD that included a a chest CT examination enabling calculation of the coronary artery calcium CAC score, then causzs of coronary artery stenosis; and b stress myocardial perfusion scintigraphy MPS.

In the worst-case-scenario i. Measures of the inflammatory response in cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis. Cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis CFA is characterized by interstitial fibrosis and parenchymal inflammation. Eleven patients with CFA 10 proved by lung biopsy were followed eepistaxis 2 yr using clinical symptoms, radiographic change, and pulmonary function tests to adjust their treatment.

Perroz lavage, positron camera PET measurements epistxis regional extravascular lung density Devpulmonary blood volume Vband the metabolic rate for 18F-deoxyglucose MRglcclearance of 99mTc-diethylenetriaminepentacetate 99mTc-DTPA aerosol, and lung uptake of 67Ga were measured initially and at the end of the first year to give a profile of the inflammatory response.

Compared with normal subjects, there was an increased percentage of neutrophils and eosinophils in the lung lavage, increased Dev p less than 0. The smallest increases in Dev were seen in the two patients with most destruction shown by lung biopsy. If glucose utilization MRglc remained in the normal range between the initial and first yearly assessment, the patient improved or remained stable during the second year as shown by clinical status and radiographic and respiratory function measurements.

If it rose or remained high, the patient’s condition deteriorated. Cicatricial organising pneumonia mimicking a fibrosing interstitial pneumonia. Organising pneumonia OP is composed of loose granulation tissue plugs in distal airspaces; these disappear with steroid treatment. Recently a variant labelled ‘cicatricial’ OP has been described xausas which the fe tissue organised to much denser fibrous tissue but still retained the usual pattern of OP.

Here we report 10 patients thought to have an interstitial lung disease, and who on biopsy had a variant of cicatricial OP characterised by linear bands or small nodular masses of dense fibrous tissue that does not resemble ordinary OP.

Small foci of loose granulation tissue at epstaxis edge of the fibrotic bands sometimes mimicked fibroblast foci.
