It is associated with significant risk for patient morbidity, such as peritonitis, bowel injury, and sepsis. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of vaginal cuff dehiscence in a 45-year-old multiparous Taiwanese woman who had undergone abdominal total hysterectomy and presented with vaginal cuff dehiscence ...
BACKGROUND: The use of monoclonal antibodies in various settings has been linked to the development of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). Whilst this association is well-described with agents such as rituximab and natalizumab, the literature describing the occurrence of PML with ofatumumab therapy (especially in a haematology setting) is sparse. This case aims to draw attention to the above association with a particular focus on the mechanisms by which B-cell-depleting therapy can...
