      Duodenal perforation associated with norovirus and rotavirus gastroenteritis (pages 47–49)

      Norishi Ueda, Takashi Shimotake and Kazunori Ohama

      Version of Record online: 6 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ccr3.20

      Norovirus (NoV) and rotavirus (RV) gastroenteritis are usually self-limiting. However, few pediatric cases of bowel perforation and no duodenal perforation with NoV gastroenteritis were reported. We describe two children with duodenal perforation due to NoV or RV gastroenteritis. Suspicion for this association enables prompt intervention, preventing lethal outcomes of these common infections.

      Prenatal diagnosis of complex rearrangement of chromosome 21: The significance of interphase and metaphase fluorescence in situ hybridization and comparative genomic hybridization (pages 50–53)

      Akira Namba, Miyuki Nishiyama, Joseph J Weiser, Phillip Wyatt, Machiko Kimura, Rei Niizawa, Akinori Miki, Osamu Ishihara, Atsuo Itakura and Yoshimasa Kamei

      Version of Record online: 9 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ccr3.22

      Maternal serum screening–positive patient had prenatal diagnosis with amniotic fluid, which showed inconsistent results between interphase fluorescence in situ hybridization (three signals of 21q22.13-21q22.2) and G-banding analysis (46,XY). Further analyses proved that the fetus had extremely complex rearrangements of chromosome 21, including the interstitial duplication of Down syndrome critical region.

      Retrograde approach to coronary chronic total occlusion via an occluded saphenous bypass graft: a case report (pages 54–58)

      Wesam A. Alhejily, David F. Kong and E. Magnus Ohman

      Version of Record online: 6 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ccr3.23

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Retrograde coronary intervention of chronic total coronary occlusion remains challenging. We describe a successful retrograde intervention of chronically occluded right coronary artery ostium via an occluded vein graft. An occluded saphenous vein graft can be a useful means to access the distal coronary bed, enabling delivery of retrograde PCI equipment.

      Two intrauterine rescue transfusions in treatment of severe fetomaternal hemorrhage in the early third trimester (pages 59–62)

      Vedran Stefanovic, Jorma Paavonen, Erja Halmesmäki, Päivi Luukkainen, Minna Tikkanen, Mika Nuutila and Piia Poikkeus

      Version of Record online: 12 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ccr3.27

      When massive fetomaternal hemorrhage is diagnosed in the early second trimester of pregnancy, serial fetal intravascular transfusion may be an alternative to immediate delivery.

      Fatal evolution of a huge right atrial free-floating thrombus (pages 63–65)

      Malick Bodian, Fatimata G. Ba, Modou Jobe, Mouhamadou B. Ndiaye, Adama Kane, Simon A. Sarr, Alassane Mbaye, Abdou M. Gaye, Ibou Thiam, Maboury Diao, Moustapha Sarr and Serigne A. Bâ

      Version of Record online: 13 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ccr3.25

      Right atrial thrombus is a rare medical emergency that should be suspected in all cases of pulmonary embolism, and rapid action should be taken to ensure a timely, proper management.

      Primary hepatocellular carcinoma (“hepatoid” carcinoma) of the pancreas: a case report and review of the literature (pages 66–71)

      Shawn Steen, Edward Wolin, Stephen A. Geller and Steven Colquhoun

      Version of Record online: 13 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ccr3.26

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      We present a case of hepatocellular carcinoma located within the pancreas. These tumors occur in the body and tail of the pancreas, with a male predominance, and at a younger age. Tumors with pure hepatocellular histopathology have better survival and recurrence rates and should be offered surgical therapy if possible.

      Severe hyperphosphatemia in a patient with chronic kidney disease and multiple myeloma–to strengthen the case toward renal replacement therapy? (pages 72–74)

      Joerg Latus, Elisabeth Höring, Matthias Voehringer, Dieter Ratge, M. Dominik Alscher and Niko Braun

      Version of Record online: 13 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ccr3.31

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      We report a patient with multiple myeloma and chronic kidney disease who presented with severe hyperphosphatemia in the outpatient clinic without any related symptoms. Initial differential diagnosis: Tumor lysis syndrome or chronic kidney disease. Further work-up revealed pseudohyperphosphatemia. In general, treatment is not necessary if the true phosphate level is within the reference range and the patient is asymptomatic.

      Growth and development in thanatophoric dysplasia – an update 25 years later (pages 75–78)

      Sarah M. Nikkel, Nathalie Major and W. James. King

      Version of Record online: 15 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ccr3.29

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Thanatophoric dysplasia is typically a neonatal lethal condition. However, for those rare individuals who do survive, there is the development of seizures, progression of craniocervical stenosis, ventilator dependence, and limitations in motor and cognitive abilities. Families must be made aware of these issues during the discussion of management plans.

      Renal transplant recipient with advanced HIV infection: graft and peripheral cell population analysis (pages 79–85)

      Ian C. Bostock, Janette Furuzawa-Carballeda, Diana Gómez-Martín, Guadalupe Lima, Alexandra Martin-Onraët, Juan Sierra, Norma O. Uribe-Uribe, Mario Vilatobá, Alan G. Contreras, Bernardo Gabilondo, Luis E. Morales-Buenrostro and Josefina Alberú

      Version of Record online: 18 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ccr3.28

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The scenario of a renal transplant recipient who is diagnosed with HIV infection in the late post transplant period is very uncommon. The viral infection effect on immunologic stability, regulatory cells, and allogeneic response during immune quiescence and graft acceptance provides a fertile ground in organ transplantation research and translational immunology.

      Diabetes in neonates is a monogenetic disease and genetic analysis is warranted to allow best treatment, prognosis, and genetic counseling. Transcription factor mutations may have a variable expression and different organs may be involved.

      Acute gastritis-induced Takotsubo's cardiomyopathy (pages 91–95)

      Pedro A. Villablanca, Shashvat Sukhal, Asimul Ansari and Dergham Mohammed

      Version of Record online: 22 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ccr3.32

      A 50-year-old lady presented with epigastralgia, ECG T-wave inversions and the echocardiogram low ejection fraction (EF) with apical ballooning, and normal coronary angiography. An esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) revealed gastritis. She recovered with conservative management and PPI. This is the first case described of gastritis-induced stress cardiomyopathy. Clinicians should be aware of TCM as a possible complication of gastritis.

      Lung volume reduction surgery in preterm infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia. A case report (pages 96–99)

      Jan de Laffolie, Markus Hirschburger, Jürgen Bauer, Lars D. Berthold, Dirk Faas and Matthias Heckmann

      Version of Record online: 25 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ccr3.35

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A preterm infant at the age of 9 months with severe bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) and large lobar emphysema, compromising ventilation into adjacent lobes with respiratory failure under maximal conservative treatment and pulmonary arterial hypertension recovered initially well after bilateral lung volume reduction surgery, but progressed 2 years later into respiratory failure. The initial imaging with Magnetic-Resonance-Imaging (MRI)-Angiography and decision-making was difficult and interdisciplinary treatment was essential.

      Gallstone ileus is a rare complication of cholelithiasis, but an established cause of mechanical small bowel obstruction in elderly patients. It is associated with high morbidity and mortality as most patients are elderly with multiple comorbidities. Surgery of choice is enterolithotomy.
