Sep 23rd, 2021 - Skeletal ciliopathies (e.g., Jeune syndrome, short rib polydactyly syndrome, and Sensenbrenner syndrome) are frequently associated with nephronophthisis-like cystic kidney disease and other organ manifestations. Despite recent progress in genetic mapping of causative loci, a common molecular mechanism of cartilage defects and cystic kidneys has remained elusive. Targeting two ciliary chondrodys...

Sep 5th, 2021 - A significant number of patients with KS have cleft palate (CP) or submucous cleft palate (SMCP) and show delayed speech development. However, few reports have discussed the characteristics of CP in KS and the outcomes of postoperative speech development. The purpose of this study was to investigate the characteristics and surgical outcomes of CP in patients with KS, and to discuss the importan...

Aug 27th, 2021 - During human organogenesis, lung development is a timely and tightly regulated developmental process under the control of a large number of signaling molecules. Understanding how genetic variants can disturb normal lung development causing different lung malformations is a major goal for dissecting molecular mechanisms during embryogenesis. Here, through exome sequencing (ES), array CGH, genome...

Aug 21st, 2021 - Rectal inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is an extremely rare mesenchymal tumor characterized by a mixture of spindle-shaped myofibroblasts or fibroblasts and inflammatory infiltration of lymphocytes and plasma cells. To date, only 8 cases of rectal IMT have been reported. Herein, we report an additional case of rectal IMT in a 28-year-old woman. A 28-year-old woman presented with abdomi...

Aug 17th, 2021 - Rhabdomyosarcoma is the most common soft tissue sarcoma in children, and embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma is the most typical type of rhabdomyosarcoma. The heterogeneity, etiology, and origin of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma remain unknown.After obtaining the gene expression data of every cell in the tumor tissue by single-cell RNA sequencing, we used the Seurat package in R studio for quality control, ...

Aug 9th, 2021 - Anal atresia is the most common malformation occurring in VACTERL association, but it is difficult to diagnose antenatally. We herein present a case of fetal anal atresia in VACTERL association diagnosed by ultrasonography and supported by autopsy. This case emphasizes the clues to ultrasonographic diagnosis of anal atresia at 11-13+6 weeks of gestation, promoting increased awareness of VACTERL...

Aug 5th, 2021 - Neurologic conditions without prenatal optimization can pose anesthetic and obstetrical challenges. We present a case of Currarino syndrome; an autosomal dominant triad of agenesis of the sacrum, anterior sacral meningocele (ASM) with sacral teratomas, and anorectal stenosis; diagnosed during pregnancy; and the subsequent anesthetic considerations. The location, size, and risk of rupture of the...

Jul 31st, 2021 - Giant cell myocarditis (GCM) is a rare condition. Its association with SARS-CoV-2 has not been described before. The 46-year-old female patient was admitted to the clinic on September 2020. She had 7 year adrenal insufficiency history and infarct-like debut of myocardial disease in November 2019. After COVID-19 in April 2020, cardiac disease progressed. The examination showed low QRS voltage, Q...

Jul 13th, 2021 - The cranial fontanelles and sutures have several benign variations, including most cases of "early" or "late" closure of the anterior fontanelle, bathrocephaly, overriding sutures, and benign metopic ridging. However, recognizing true craniosynostosis and referring the patient to a craniofacial specialist in a timely fashion are imperative, as minimally invasive options can be offered to most p...

Jul 8th, 2021 - Displaced anterior segmental bronchus and pulmonary artery is extremely rare. A keen knowledge of such variations is required in the field of pulmonary segmentectomy, for unawareness of the structural variation could lead to intra- and postoperative complications. A 50-year-old female presented to our department with suspected lung adenocarcinoma. Preoperative 3-dimensional computed tomographic...

Jul 1st, 2021 - Head and neck surgeons must have a thorough knowledge of head and neck vascular anatomy and its variations. This case report documents a variation in the superior thyroid artery encountered during a neck dissection and discusses the surrounding literature. A 55-year-old female with squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue underwent a partial glossectomy, right level I-IV neck dissection and recons...

Jun 23rd, 2021 - Young patients presenting with cryptogenic stroke should be investigated for cardiac and extra-cardiac sources of emboli. We present a patient who was investigated for a cardiac source of emboli, following multiple ischaemic strokes and migraine with aura over a period of 17 years. The events were initially thought to be related to a patent foramen ovale (PFO) on bubble contrast echocardiograph...
