Abstract Cardiac amyloid A (AA) amyloidosis is rare. We present the case of a 72-year-old woman with obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and biopsy-proven renal AA amyloidosis whose dyspnea and exercise intolerance had worsened over the previous year. Her AA amyloidosis was suspected to be secondary to chronic diverticulitis for which she had undergone hemicolectomy and sigmoidectomy 3 years prior. Echocardiographic findings were consistent with worsening left ventricular outflow tract...

Abstract Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA), formerly called Churg-Strauss syndrome, is an uncommon disease with pathological features consisting of systemic necrotizing vasculitis, eosinophilic infiltration, and granulomatous or non-granulomatous extravascular eosinophilic inflammation. EGPA preferentially affects certain organ systems, including the airways, peripheral nerves, heart, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract. Although gastrointestinal involvement, such as ulceration...

This paper collates the pathological findings from initial published autopsy reports on 23 patients with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) from 5 centers in the United States of America, including 3 cases from Houston, Texas. Findings confirm that COVID-19 is a systemic disease with major involvement of the lungs and heart. Acute COVID-19 pneumonia has features of a distinctive acute interstitial pneumonia with: a diffuse alveolar damage (DAD) component, coupled with microvascular involvement ...

Abstract Aortic syphilis today is infrequently diagnosed clinically. Described herein are findings in 5 women who had resection of a fusiform aneurysm of the tubular portion of ascending aorta, and examination of the wall of the aneurysm disclosed classic features of aortic syphilis. The 5 patients were among 36 who had ascending aortic operations at Baylor University Medical Center (BUMC) in Dallas in 2018 and early 2019. Syphilitic aneurysm in each spared the sinus portion and involved diffuse...

Abstract Pericardial amyloidosis is a rare cause of pericardial effusion. Here, we report a case of recurrent pericardial effusion due to pericardial amyloid deposition. The patient was a man in his 40s admitted for pulmonary embolism. During hospitalization, arterial fibrillation and cardiac tamponade were observed, and an initial pericardial puncture was performed. Thereafter, pericardial puncture was repeated nine times over the next two years. Cytological examination of the pericardial effus...
