The heart size cannot be assessed on this projection...... Calcified old granulomas... CXR: calcified old granulomas on both upper lung fields and left mid lung zone
Since patient h was difficulty weaning from 02, rpt xray done 5 Days later. The hear size is enlarge, prominent hilum is likely due to vascular shadows, fribrocalcific foci in bilateral upper znes and left mid zone are in keeping with previous granulomatous infection, ther is blunting of costophrenic angle, suggestive of bilateral pluerl effusin. Referral to pulmologistr was done.. Bedside ultrasound was done which showed no tapable pleural effsuin
In view of elevated creatinine, it was trended. It was initially thought as AKI, hence hydration was done, then... But it reached up to 300 (+0 mg /dl Renal consult was done.
Renal AKI w/ leucocytomia and past hx of TB kidney T?RO vasculitis Ddx: chronic interstitial nephritis or acute interstitial nephritis Small left kidney may be sec to tb 2. Pnemnia 5 th metatarsal fracture Myeloperoxidase deficiency is a hereditary deficiency of the enzyme, which predisposes to immune deficiency .  Antibodies against MPO have been implicated in various types of vasculitis, most prominently crescentic glomerulonephritis and Churg-Strauss syndrome. They are detected as perinuclear ANCAs (p-ANCAs), as opposed to the cytoplasmic ANCAs (c-ANCAs) against proteinase-3 (PR3), which are strongly associated with Wegener's granulomatosis.

ANOTHER DDS IS ---TB of the kidneys. Genitourinary tuberculosis (GUTB) is the second most common form of extrapulmonary tuberculosis after lymph node involvement . Kidney is usually the primary organ infected in urinary disease, and other parts of the urinary tract become involved by direct extension. The GUTB has varied presentation and some of the common ways are: Recurrent or resistant urinary tract infection, sterile pyuria with or without hematuria . Irritative voiding symptoms, i.e., frequency, urgency, and dysuria.An incidental diagnosis in a known case of tuberculosis. Renal (hydronephrosis/pyonephrosis) or epididymal mass. Infertility and pelvic inflammatory disease. Renal failure (Chronic kidney disease due to parenchymal infection and obstructive uropathy. The various other ways of presentation described are: flank pain with acute pyelonephritis, non-healing wounds, sinuses, or fistulae (nephrocutaneous fistula or vesicovaginal fistula), and hemospermia. The most common symptoms with which the patients have presented are in the form of irritative voiding, which are found in more than 50% of the patients. The other symptoms in GUTB can be fever, weight loss, anorexia, backache, and abdominal pain.[
unexplained renal dysfunction, anemia, or pathologic fracture should prompt evaluation for this diagnosis. . a clearly elevated B2 macroglobulin in the absence of renal faliure or an inflammatory process would suggest a diagnosis of MM and the patient should be carefully examined.
pATHOBIOOLOgy of MM is a complex prc3ess of malignant clone of plasma cell origin. Virtually all MM myeloma cases are preceded by a premalignant plasma cell prolifereation disorder of the Monoglonal gammopathy of undetermined significance. MGUS is present in over 3 percent of thhe population above 50 and prgresses to Myeloma or arelated malignancy at a rate of 1 % per year
Epidemiologic data suggest a genetic predisposition as well as other potential risk factors including… Radiologists exposed to large doses of long term radiation have an increased risk of MM Workes in nuclear plants and farmers who use herbicieds, insecticides and those who employ benzene and petroleum products have increased risk of MM but the evidence is not compelling.
A restospective analysis of 1027 sequential patients diagnoised with MM at a single instituion found the following symproms and signs at presentaiton.
Bisphosphonates are given to prevent fracture , routine administered to prevent fractures, they also have been observed to have direct anti tumor effect in patients without known skeletal disease. Chemotherapy Autologous SCT: - not curative but prolong overall survival and complete remission Allogenic SCT- has potential cure but is ony avialable to asmall percentage
This staging is only in patients who meet diagnostic criteria of myeloma. Patients with MGUS and aymptomatic myeloma who have renal dysfuntion from unrelated causes such as diabetes or hypertension may have elevated b2M levels just from the renal dysfunction and cannot be considered as stage III myeloma.This is one of the drawbacks of the Iss. It daoes not really quantify quantity tumor burden or extent unlike staging used in other cancers. It is recommended to use along durie salmon staging system.
Staging and classification of multiple myeloma A staging system is used by the medical profession to describe how advanced the myeloma is, and how it is affecting the body. A common staging system is called the Durie-Salmon system. The four factors of the Durie-Salmon system: What is the red blood cell count? How much calcium is in the blood? How much paraproteins (monoclonal proteins, or M proteins) is in the blood? The general state of the patient's bones. Stage one (Durie-Salmon system) Blood calcium levels are normal Red blood cell levels are either normal or slightly below normal Low levels of paraproteins (monoclonal proteins, or M proteins) in the blood Bones are either undamaged or slightly damaged Most patients have no symptoms Stage two (Durie-Salmon system) Red blood cell levels still relatively normal Calcium blood levels still relatively normal Levels of paraproteins (monoclonal proteins, or M proteins) still low Damage is present in one or two bones Stage three (Durie-Salmon system) Red blood cell levels have fallen. Symptoms of anemia are probably present. Blood calcium levels have risen. Symptoms of hypercalcemia are likely. High levels of paraproteins (monoclonal proteins, or M proteins) in the blood. Damage to three or more bones. The Durie-Salmon system also has a system to indicate the health or deterioration of the kidneys: A - kidneys are either undamaged or only slightly damaged. B - kidneys are damaged, kidney function is abnormal. Kidney damage is more likely during stages two or three, but can also occur in stage one.
