  • Torsades de Pointe Associated with Trazodone Consumption

    • Abstract: Introduction. Trazodone is a serotonin receptor antagonist and reuptake inhibitor commonly used to treat major depression disorder (MDD), anxiety, and sleep disorders. It is considered safe for the heart due to minimal anticholinergic effects. Prolonged QT intervals can cause polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, known as torsades de pointe (TdP). We present a case of a 67-year-old female with a history of MDD who developed trazodone-induced TdP. Case Presentation. The patient was referred to a tertiary hospital with a ten-hour history of nausea and vomiting. Trazodone (50 mg daily) was started for her six days ago due to her past medical history of MDD. The initial electrocardiography (ECG) revealed a prolonged corrected QT interval ( ms) due to a long ST segment and generalized T wave inversion. A few moments after admission to the intensive care unit, she suddenly lost consciousness. ECG monitoring showed a TdP, which terminated immediately with the asynchronous defibrillation. A temporary pacemaker was implanted due to repeated arrhythmias and bradycardia. Arrhythmia did not recur for hours and days later. After four days of stopping trazodone, all abnormal ECG findings were resolved, and she was discharged with a normal ECG. She was followed up six months later; the ECG was normal, and she had no complaints. Conclusion. Trazodone may lead to QTc prolongation and TdP, potentially fatal even without risk factors for QTc prolongation. Close monitoring is essential to prevent adverse complications in trazodone users.

  • Intragastric Botulinum Toxin Injection and Botulism: An Alarm for
           Clinicians

    • Abstract: Clostridium botulinum produces the most potent bacterial toxin, botulinum toxin A (BTXA), which has various therapeutic and cosmetic indications. Intragastric BTXA injection is a new obesity treatment method that was argued to be safe due to the inactivation of BTXA through the liver or metabolization within the gastric wall. However, a 36-year-old woman was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) due to developing botulism as a result of an intragastric injection of BTXA. The diplopia, headaches, ptosis, decreased muscle force, and respiratory distress two days after injection were her first chief complaints, and also, she experienced significant dysphagia, hoarse voice, thick tongue, constipation, hyposmia, and hypogeusia after two weeks. This case report highlights the necessity for physicians to have sufficient information about this method and consider possible life-threatening adverse effects including botulism.

  • Sudden Cardiac Arrest in a Youth with Multiple Arrhythmic Substrates

    • Abstract: Background. Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is a common condition with an estimated prevalence of 1-3%, in which there is systolic displacement of a morphologically redundant mitral valve towards the left atrium. Mitral annular disjunction (MAD) is a separation of the MV attachment with the left ventricle, with hypermobility of the leaflets, and with systolic “curling” of the basal LV (left ventricle) myocardium. It is frequently associated with MVP and may confer an increased arrhythmic risk. Case Description. A 28-year-old male had ventricular fibrillation leading to out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, which was successfully resuscitated. His coronary arteries were unobstructed on invasive coronary angiography. Transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) demonstrated MAD, confirmed by cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging and transoesophageal echocardiogram (TOE). The LV was severely dilated with reduced EF (ejection fraction), and the QTc interval was also prolonged. His father had died suddenly aged 50 years. Conclusions. This report describes the clinical dilemma of identifying and treating a patient with multiple potential causes of cardiac arrest. Despite being relatively common, the clinical significance of MAD is still uncertain and the extent to which it may be linked with complications such as ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. MAD appears to confer an increased risk of ventricular arrhythmias, particularly when associated with MVP, particularly nonsustained VT.

  • Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation in Acute Respiratory Failure due to
           Hemorrhagic Alveolitis in a Patient with Acute Myeloblastic Leukemia

    • Abstract: Introduction. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support for severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is nowadays widely used with notable results on the overall survival as reported in the ELSO registry near to 55% at 90 days. This is the reason why ECMO teams force the use of this extreme technique to several populations, even though there is still a lack of data about its use on hematological patients. Case Report. A 39-year-old woman without a history of previous diseases, but a new diagnosis of acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) was admitted to intensive care unit (ICU) for worsening hypoxia and respiratory acidosis, presenting an ARDS with in spontaneous breathing treated with noninvasive ventilation via full-face mask. Meanwhile, chemotherapy was started leading to a severe bone marrow aplasia that was managed with multiple blood and platelet transfusions. These conditions did not allow physicians to start any invasive approaches. After 14 days, ARDS worsened whereas bone marrow recovered, making possible the beginning of an invasive mechanical ventilation, with low positive end-expiratory pressure and a low tidal volume. Moreover, an immediate extracorporeal CO2 removal (ECCO2R) therapy was added. Despite these efforts, no improvement was achieved, and that is why venovenous ECMO throughout femoral-jugular cannulation was applied. A full protective lung ventilation by ultralow tidal volumes was guaranteed. After 2 weeks of ECMO, a gradual weaning from ECMO support was started and completed after two days. No ECMO-related complications were registered. In the end, the patient started her weaning from the mechanical ventilation and reached 12 hours of spontaneous ventilation in oxygen therapy. Discussion. ECMO is used as a rescue therapy in patients affected by severe respiratory failure with life-threatening hypoxia and respiratory acidosis nonresponsive to other maneuvers. However, immunosuppression and coagulopathies of hematological malignancies are considered relative contraindications for ECMO, while long-lasting respiratory failure represents another relative contraindication to extracorporeal support. ECMO could be a valid option to improve the survival of hematological patients with severe ARDS and thrombocytopenia, and management could change case by case, even if high incidence of recurrency.

  • A Case of Hepatotoxicity Induced by Therapeutic Ketamine Use for Sedation

    • Abstract: Ketamine, initially developed as an anesthetic, has shown versatility in medical applications, including pain management, treatment-resistant depression, and sedation in the intensive care unit (ICU). While generally well-tolerated, long-term use at high doses raises concerns about potential toxicities, particularly in the liver. We present a case of a 27-year-old female with a complex medical history who received ketamine infusion for ICU sedation and experienced a sudden rise in liver function tests (LFTs), indicating possible ketamine-induced liver injury (KILI). The patient’s liver function normalized after ketamine discontinuation. KILI is infrequent with short-term ketamine use, but emerging case reports suggest it may be associated with chronic or intermittent exposure. The underlying mechanisms for KILI are not fully understood but may involve the accumulation of ketamine metabolites, causing direct toxic effects on the liver. As ketamine’s use expands, especially in critical care settings, clinicians should be vigilant for the potential development of KILI. Further research is needed to better understand its risk factors and mechanisms, as early detection and management of KILI are crucial to ensuring patient safety and optimizing ketamine’s therapeutic benefits.

  • Transient Lactic Acidosis and Elevation of Transaminases after the
           Introduction of Remdesivir in a Patient with Acute Kidney Injury

    • Abstract: A 56-year-old woman was transferred to the intensive care unit (ICU) two days after an allogeneic stem cell transplantation (ASCT) when she presented acute respiratory distress due to the relapse of a SARS-CoV-2 infection. Following that, she received two intravenous doses of 100 mg remdesivir. Subsequently, the patient developed multiple instances of diarrhea, progressing to oliguria and acute kidney injury, necessitating continuous venovenous hemofiltration (CVVH). Despite the absence of signs of hypoxemia or cardiocirculatory failure requiring vasopressor intervention, a progressive lactic acidosis emerged. Two days after the onset of lactic acidosis, a significant rise in aminotransferases and lactate dehydrogenase occurred, in the absence of encephalopathy and coagulation disorders. Remdesivir therapy had been interrupted upon the initial signs of lactic acidosis. Despite an improvement in liver function tests and lactic acidosis, the patient’s condition deteriorated, ultimately leading to her demise on day 29 due to newly arising hematological complications.

  • Friendly Kisses Can Be Deadly: Capnocytophaga canimorsus Bacteremia in an
           Asplenic Patient Exposed to Canine Saliva

    • Abstract: The differential diagnosis for febrile asplenic patients must always include opportunistic infections. Capnocytophaga canimorsus is one such infection. In this report, we discuss the case of a 73-year-old woman with a medical history significant for splenectomy for splenic sarcoma with prophylactic vaccination for pneumococcus who presented with rigors, emesis, and abdominal pain. Initial vital signs were 39.6°C (103.3°F), 166/70 mmHg, 92 bpm, and 95% SpO2 on room air. A physical examination revealed mild epigastric tenderness. Initial labs and imaging were unremarkable. Eight hours after the presentation, she became hypotensive. Repeat labs revealed leukopenia with 51% bands, hemoglobin 11.0 g/dL down from 13.9 g/dL, platelets 74 K/μL trending down to 15 K/μL, PT 23.5 sec., aPTT 60.3 sec., D-dimer greater than 20 μg/mL, fibrinogen 190 mg/dL, LDH 1515 IU/L, haptoglobin less than 20 mg/dL, and creatinine 1.84 mg/dL. A peripheral smear showed schistocytes. Blood cultures identified gram-negative rods and Capnocytophaga canimorsus. After further questioning, she recalled her dog licking an abrasion on her left index finger. Four days after the presentation, she developed a purpuric rash on her bilateral hands and feet with areas of Nikolsky’s negative bullae along the dorsum of her left foot. She also developed acute renal failure requiring renal replacement therapy and hemodialysis. Capnocytophaga canimorsus is an encapsulated facultative anaerobic gram-negative bacillus. Infection can result in bacteremia and sepsis and carries a high mortality rate, even with treatment. Those with hyposplenism/asplenia are particularly susceptible to infection and can deteriorate quickly, as seen in this case. Although this infection is rare, our case highlights how all asplenic patients must be assessed and treated for encapsulated bacterial infections when presenting with an acute febrile illness, regardless of initial laboratory analysis.

  • Microendoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Percutaneous Tracheostomy (MUGPT): A
           Case Series Describing a Novel Technique for Performing Percutaneous
           Tracheostomy

    • Abstract: A percutaneous tracheostomy is a common surgical procedure done in intensive care. Several different techniques have been described. Recently, the addition of bronchoscopy or ultrasound has been advocated to decrease the risks and complications associated with the procedure; however, both aids used alone, bronchoscopy or ultrasound, have some drawbacks and pitfalls. In this manuscript, we describe a new technique implementing a new technology, Microendoscopy coupled with ultrasound to perform percutaneous dilation tracheostomy MUGPT. MUGPT relies on dual real-time feedback microendoscopy and ultrasound to perform percutaneous dilation tracheostomy. This technique helps reduce the risk of bleeding, airway loss, tracheal wall injury, tracheal ring fracture, damage to adjacent structures, pneumothorax, pneumomediastinum, subcutaneous emphysema, false placement, hypoxia, carbon dioxide retention bronchospasm, cardiac dysrhythmias, and cost reduction. Methods. This is a case series of 6 patients who underwent single-step percutaneous dilation tracheostomy using the MUGPT technique. All the patients were in ICU and were candidates for tracheostomy. Intraoperative data collection, vital signs, oxygen saturation, and end-tidal CO2 were measured. No postoperative or intraoperative complications were documented. Conclusion. Microendoscopic ultrasound-guided percutaneous tracheostomy (MUGPT) is a promising technique with minimal complications. It is a procedure that can be performed and taught easily to Junior physicians and is a lifesaver in difficult cases.

  • Hepatobiliary Brucellosis: Brucella Bacteremia Presenting with Refractory
           Hepatobiliary Infection

    • Abstract: Brucellosis often presents with common and nonspecific symptoms such as fever, malaise, and arthralgia but can also involve primary organs. Intra-abdominal involvement is rare. We report a case of hepatobiliary brucellosis presenting as a refractory hepatobiliary infection in a healthy young adult with no underlying rheumatologic disease or history of exposure to risk factors. Detection of Brucella in the blood led to a shift in the patient’s management and consequently her recovery.

           Pseudoaneurysms

    • Abstract: Pseudoaneurysm rupture in patients with pancreatitis is a rare but fatal etiology of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. We report a rare case of upper gastrointestinal bleeding in a patient who presented simultaneously with two pseudoaneurysms, a potential cause of severe gastrointestinal bleeding. Angiography was successfully performed with coil embolization of the target arteries and both pseudoaneurysmal sacs. The patient was discharged 9 days after admission without further events within a 3-month follow-up period.

  • Cardiac Oscillations Complicating Brain Death Diagnosis

    • Abstract: Death by neurologic criteria (DNC) or brain death is a clinical diagnosis. It is often complicated by variations in policies as well as confounders on examination. We discuss here the case of a 27-year-old male who had a cardiac arrest following toxic gaseous exposure. He ultimately progressed to brain death but was identified as having cardiac oscillations during clinical assessments that complicated the diagnosis. We discuss the case as well as the maneuvers used to clarify that the “triggered breaths” on the ventilator were indeed cardiac oscillations.

  • Sepsis as the Grand Mimic of Secondary Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis:
           Serratia marcescens Bacteremia with Concomitant Decompensated Cirrhotic
           Liver Disease

    • Abstract: Secondary hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is an elusive entity with sequelae that may be confused with sepsis. We discuss a 45-year-old man with decompensated liver cirrhosis with sepsis treated with broad-spectrum intravenous antibiotics. Further work-up initially supported sepsis-HLH overlap syndrome (SHLHOS) and corticosteroids were added. Ongoing refractory hypotension ensued, and the patient passed within 31 hours of presentation. Based on the patient’s overwhelming immune activation and clinical course likely unsalvageable by cytotoxic immunosuppressive agents, the patient was diagnosed with sepsis with acute end organ dysfunction. This case report illustrates both the diagnostic challenge of sepsis versus HLH, which both require very different treatments, and the potential for rapid clinical decline without swift recognition and management of the true pathology.

  • Type B Lactic Acidosis in a Patient with Mantle Cell Lymphoma

    • Abstract: Type B lactic acidosis is an uncommon medical emergency in which acid production overwhelms hepatic clearance. This specific etiology of lactic acidosis occurs without organ hypoperfusion and has been most commonly described in patients with hematologic malignancies but also in patients with solid tumors. The mechanism by which cancer cells switch their glucose metabolism toward increasingly anaerobic glycolytic phenotypes has been described as the “Warburg effect.” Without treating the underlying malignancy, the prognosis for patients diagnosed with malignancy-related type B lactic acidosis is extremely poor. Here, we present a case of a 66-year-old male who was diagnosed with type B lactic acidosis secondary to mantle cell lymphoma. Bicarbonate drip was started to correct the lactic acidosis. The patient was also immediately treated with rituximab chemotherapy combined with rasburicase to avoid the hyperuricemia associated with tumor lysis syndrome. He responded to the early treatment and was discharged with normal renal function. Type B lactic acidosis secondary to hematologic malignancy is important to recognize. In order to successfully treat this syndrome, early diagnosis and simultaneous treatment of the imbalance of lactic acid levels and the underlying malignancy are necessary.

  • Intravascular Large B-Cell Lymphoma in Acute Hypoxic Respiratory Failure

    • Abstract: Intravascular large B-cell lymphoma, an extranodal large B-cell lymphoma, is a rare hematological malignancy with only a few reports of lung involvement. We report a case of intravascular large B-cell lymphoma with acute hypoxic respiratory failure and interstitial lung disease diagnosed via random skin biopsies. A 54-year-old woman presented with fever, cough, and dyspnea. Computed tomography imaging revealed findings concerning interstitial lung disease. The patient’s respiratory status worsened despite the treatment with antibiotics and steroids. Generalized edema and thrombocytopenia also developed. Intravascular large B-cell lymphoma was clinically suspected and ultimately diagnosed by skin biopsy, although she had no apparent skin lesions. The patient’s condition considerably improved after chemotherapy. Intravascular large B-cell lymphoma should be considered in patients with acute respiratory failure and interstitial lung lesions.

  • “Beyond the Bladder: Exploring the Intricacies of Emphysematous Cystitis
           and Its Surprising Associations”

    • Abstract: Emphysematous cystitis is defined by the presence of air within the bladder wall or lumen in imaging studies with increased incidence in elderly women and diabetics. It is a result of gas-forming organisms like Klebsiella and E. coli but can be caused by fungi such as Candida and Aspergillus as well with a wide spectrum of clinical presentations. In this article, we present a case of a 77-year-old female with diabetes mellitus who presented to the hospital with a chief complaint of left lower quadrant abdominal pain. Abdominal imaging revealed emphysematous cystitis, paraspinal abscess, and air in the thoracic and lumbar vertebrae. Laboratory results showed leukocytosis, lactic acidosis, and urinalysis significant for urinary tract infection but no positive urine or blood cultures. The patient was admitted to the intensive care unit for septic shock and was treated with mechanical ventilation, vasopressor support, and prompt antimicrobial therapy following which the requirement of vasopressors ceased on the third day of admission. The decision was then made by the family to pursue hospice care, following which mechanical ventilation was discontinued and the patient transferred to inpatient hospice. With this case report, we aim to add to the existing literature regarding the spread of intra-abdominal infections and go over a brief review of the currently available literature. From our review, we would like to conclude that the presence of pneumoracchis, especially in the setting of an intra-abdominal infection, is a poor prognostic marker, and timely diagnosis and treatment of potential causes are required to reduce mortality.

    • Abstract: Sepsis is a critical condition affecting patients worldwide. Systemic inflammatory response syndrome in sepsis contributes to organ dysfunction and mortality. The oXiris is a recently developed continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) hemofilter indicated for the adsorption of cytokines from the bloodstream. In our study, in a septic child, CRRT with three filters, including the oXiris hemofilter, resulted in a downregulation of inflammatory biomarkers and a reduction of vasopressors. Herein, we described the first report of such usage in septic children.

  • A Case Series of Persistent SARS-CoV-2 Infection in Immunocompromised
           Pediatric Patients

    • Abstract: Diagnosis and management of SARS-CoV-2 infection in immunocompromised patients are extremely challenging. These patients can have atypical clinical courses, and there is a paucity of data regarding clinical features, diagnostic findings, and the safety and efficacy of available therapeutic agents used to treat COVID-19 in these patients. In this case series, we report atypical COVID-19 presentations in 4 immunocompromised pediatric patients who were admitted with acute respiratory failure after an initial diagnosis of COVID-19 a few weeks earlier. All patients included in this cohort showed persistent worsening respiratory symptoms for several weeks before hospital presentation. While they manifested common COVID-19 sequelae, they also had rare COVID-19-related pathognomonic and radiographic features developed along their hospital course. Multiple therapeutic agents were used in their COVID-19 management, including corticosteroids, remdesivir, and monoclonal antibodies. All three patients who have received concurrent therapy with remdesivir, hydrocortisone, and monoclonal antibodies survived, and only one patient died as a direct complication of COVID-19 ARDS with secondary pulmonary mucormycosis. Our outcomes suggest the potential benefit of remdesivir use in combination with hydrocortisone and monoclonal antibodies in the management of severe COVID-19 ARDS in this group, as well as the importance of close surveillance and early administration of broad empirical antimicrobial and antifungal coverage if clinically indicated in this high-risk population.

  • Atrio-Esophageal Fistula: A Rare Entity Complicating a Common Procedure

    • Abstract: A 66-year-old female with a history of radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation presented with hematemesis and fever. A CT chest revealed an atrio-esophageal fistula (AEF) and a CT head showed bilateral septic emboli. Blood cultures were positive for Streptococcus sanguinis. She underwent primary repair of the atrial defect on cardiopulmonary bypass where a large atrial vegetation was retrieved, followed by a right thoracotomy with the closure of the esophageal defect the next day. She was discharged to a rehabilitation facility after 18 days of hospital stay with a 6 weeks antibiotics plan. The incidence of AEF following ablation procedures has been estimated at 0.01 to 0.04%, and the pathogenesis is linked to direct tissue and vagus nerve injury. The most common clinical findings are fever and neurologic deficits. CT chest is the best diagnostic modality. CT head might demonstrate embolic phenomena and TTE can show vegetation. Early surgical intervention, even in an unstable patient, is paramount for survival.

  • Spontaneous Hepatic Rupture in a Pregnant Woman with Preeclampsia and
           HELLP Syndrome

    • Abstract: Spontaneous hepatic rupture is a rare complication associated with preeclampsia and is characterized by hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and a low platelet count (HELLP syndrome), with a nonspecific clinical presentation and high mortality rate. We present the case of a 34-year-old primigravida woman in whom spontaneous hepatic rupture associated with HELLP syndrome was accidentally detected during cesarean delivery. The patient was successfully managed with liver packing and transcatheter arterial embolization, followed by plasmapheresis. Spontaneous hepatic rupture should be considered in any HELLP syndrome patient presenting with epigastric or right upper quadrant pain and early signs of hemodynamic instability. A multimodal approach can help achieve good clinical outcomes in patients with this rare presentation.

  • Full-Term Delivery and Complete Lung Recovery following VV ECMO Support
           Midpregnancy in a Patient with COVID-19 ARDS

    • Abstract: Pregnant women are especially vulnerable to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). We present a twin pregnancy case with acute respiratory distress syndrome following COVID-19 infection at 19 weeks. The patient’s ARDS was successfully managed with veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV ECMO). She recovered completely and delivered healthy twins.

  • Use of Continuous Intravenous Anakinra Infusion in Multisystem
           Inflammatory Syndrome in Children

    • Abstract: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an emergency pandemic with a high mortality rate worldwide. One of its complications in children is developing multisystemic inflammatory syndrome related to cytokine storm. Anakinra is a recombinant human interleukin-1 (IL-1) receptor antagonist used to suppress the exaggerated inflammatory response in such conditions, and it is potentially lifesaving in a cytokine storm. We present the case of a patient with critical COVID-19 associated with multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) successfully treated with anakinra intravenous (IV) infusion.

  • Primary MRSA Myositis Mimicking Septic Arthritis

    • Abstract: As the incidence of bacterial myositis and pyomyositis in the United States is rising, we aim to highlight the presentation of bacterial myositis which is known as a great imitator in tropical regions. This is a case report of a 61-year-old female patient with poorly controlled diabetes who presented initially with lateral hip pain and tenderness. This was initially believed to be septic arthritis and warranted arthrocentesis. What makes this case interesting is that what was believed to be a primary community-acquired MRSA myositis, which progressed to a life-threatening septic shock, happened in a nontropical area (Northeastern USA) and in a patient with no underlying recent muscle injury. This case serves to remind clinicians that infectious myositis is gaining more incidence in nontropical regions and can masquerade as septic arthritis, requiring a high index of suspicion. Normal muscle enzymes like CK and aldolase do not rule out myositis.
