Abstract Introduction Comorbidities are thought to have prognostic impact on outcomes of patients submitted to noninvasive ventilation (NIV). Our goal was to determine if age-adjusted Charlson comorbidity index (ACCI) could predict outcomes in patients undergoing NIV due to acute respiratory failure. Methods Patients in respiratory failure submitted to NIV were prospective evaluated comparing patient's characteristics and outcomes according to ACCI ≤ median vs. ACCI > median. Each comorbidity co...

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a multisystemic autoimmune disorder. Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is an infrequent neuroinflammatory disorder, whose association with SLE remains rare. The authors report the case of an 18-year-old woman, with SLE refractory to multiple immunosuppressive therapies and novel biological agents. Under immunosuppressive therapy, the patient presented with transverse myelitis with contiguous spinal cord lesions and urinary incontinence, having been diagnosed with s...

Thyroid carcinoma is the most common endocrine neoplasia. Differentiated thyroid carcinomas (DTCs) represent the majority of cases, which usually follow an indolent clinical course with low mortality rates. The authors describe two cases of well DTC without classic histological poor prognosis features, presenting as extensive and unresectable osteolytic bone metastases. DTCs are considered harmless tumours, due to their benign and silent behaviour. The authors want to underline the importance of...

Osteoarticular tuberculosis is the third most frequent location of tuberculosis after the lung and lymph nodes, accounting for approximately 10%–20% of all cases of extrapulmonary disease. Tuberculosis of the hand and wrist is the rarest osteoarticular location after the shoulder. The authors report the case of a 50-year-old woman without medical history who was diagnosed with isolated tuberculosis of the wrist presenting as monarthritis. The diagnosis was confirmed by histopathological and micr...

Seizures constitute a determining aspect in quality of life and are frequently challenging in palliative care—a field where treatment has yet to be standardised. Levetiracetam—a new generation anticonvulsant—has proved efficacy both through oral, as well as intravenous administration in the general population. This case reports on the use of continuous subcutaneous levetiracetam to effectively control seizures in a terminally ill patient without patent oral route.

The clinical presentation of acute hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is usually related to the onset of liver failure and damage. Anaemia may occur, but it is only rarely attributed to haemolysis. The authors report about the case of a 41-year-old woman with the diagnosis of acute HBV infection and coagulopathy (without encephalopathy) who developed non-immune haemolytic anaemia. Total recovery of the analytical liver profile, coagulopathy and anaemia was achieved through treatment targeting HBV...
