  • Encephalomyelitis Associated With Coronavirus Disease 2019 This case highlights the need to be aware of longitudinally extensive transverse myelitis as a manifestation of COVID-19. In this patient, LETM was followed by post-COVID encephalomyelitis.
  • An Unusual Presentation of Anaphylaxis With Severe Hypertension Anaphylaxis is usually associated with low blood pressure, but this unusual case highlights the need to be aware that it may present with elevated BP as well.
  • Hypereosinophilic Syndrome Following Asymptomatic COVID-19 Did this patient's asymptomatic COVID-19 infection contribute to the exacerbation of acute idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome?
  • ACS in an 8-year-old Child With Familial Hypercholesterolemia This 8-year old presenting with acute coronary syndrome and familial hypercholesterolemia was successfully treated with percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty.
  • Pseudoprogression in NSCLC Treated With Combo Chemotherapy This case highlights the potential of pseudoprogression in cancer patients treated with immune checkpoint inhibitors, either alone or in combination with cytotoxic therapy.
  • Recurrent SCC in a Patient With Xeroderma Pigmentosum The report emphasizes the importance of early diagnosis of xeroderma pigmentosum and presents a novel causative mutation revealed by whole-exome sequencing.
  • Microdose Cannabinoid Extract Ameliorates Alzheimer's Symptoms Might cannabinoid microdosing be effective in improving memory and brain functions in mild Alzheimer disease, as this case suggests?
  • Acute Pleural Effusion, a Rare Presentation of Hepatitis A While hepatitis A virus infections are usually asymptomatic, this case demonstrates acute pleural effusion as a rare but benign extrahepatic complication of HAV acute hepatitis.
  • Psychiatric Reaction of a COVID-19 ICU Survivor This paper describes a complex case of acute COVID-19 in the intensive care unit associated with delirium and psychiatric issues, leading to incipient post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • Dermatologic Manifestations in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome This case of atypical generalized ulceration formation in the setting of complex regional pain syndrome details the extensive workup for dermatologic manifestations of CRPS.
  • SVT as a Possible Consequence of ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 Vaccine This report suggests that superficial venous thrombosis may be an addition to the list of adverse events associated with ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 (Covishield) vaccine.
  • Closed-chest Management of a Fungal-infected Aortic Graft This case demonstrates that infected prosthetic aortic grafts can be successfully managed with robotic-assisted, minimally invasive debridement via a closed-chest approach.
  • Myocarditis, Thyroiditis After Astrazeneca COVID-2019 Vaccine Myocarditis following mRNA COVID-19 vaccination has been widely described, but this is the first reported case following the administration of the AstraZeneca adenoviral vector COVID-19 vaccine.
  • The Significance of Widely Split P Waves This case highlights the need to be aware that the presence of widely split P waves on an ECG may proceed to more serious cardiac arrhythmias during an anesthetic procedure.
  • Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Adults This case report explores the clinical features and possible pathophysiological basis of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in adults, secondary to SARS-CoV-2 infection.
  • Drug-induced Acute Pancreatitis in a Bodybuilder Was a "drug cocktail" of anabolic-androgenic steroids and growth hormones the cause of this bodybuilder's acute pancreatitis?
  • Herpetic Anterior Uveitis Following Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine What are the possible immunological mechanisms by which SARS-CoV-2 vaccination might trigger herpetic reactivation, as in these patients who developed herpetic anterior uveitis after an mRNA vaccine?
  • Severe Neonatal Respiratory Distress Due to SARS-CoV-2 This case details the complex management of a rare but serious neonatal SARS-CoV-2 infection, leading to severe acute respiratory distress syndrome.
  • Guillain-barre/Miller Fisher Overlap Syndrome After COVID-19 An acute motor sensory axonal neuropathy is a neurological complication that may result from COVID-19-provoked Guillain-barre syndrome, as seen in this patient.
  • Chronic Appendicitis: Two Case Reports These two cases highlight the challenges of diagnosing and treating chronic appendicitis, an uncommon and sometimes controversial condition which is often misdiagnosed.
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for Long COVID-19 Might hyperbaric oxygen therapy improve the cognitive and cardiorespiratory symptoms of long COVID?
  • Spontaneous Tension Pneumothorax Following COVID-19 Pneumonitis This case report highlights the importance of recognizing tension pneumothorax as a possible complication of COVID-19 pneumonitis even weeks after resolution of other symptoms.
  • The Perfect Storm for Acquired Long QT Syndrome This case highlights the need for proper assessment prior to prescribing QT prolonging medications, especially where there are risk factors for prolonged QT, such as electrolyte disturbances.
  • Treating Long Covid Syndrome-related Myalgia Myalgia can be one of the symptoms of long-COVID syndrome. Might dry and/or wet needling be effective treatments for long COVID-related myofascial pain?
