    Acucena de Oliveira Borges, Gustavo Almeida Linhares, Leticia Goes Pereira, Rafaela de Morais Fernandes, Yarla Resende Oliveira, Laura Gomes Lima, Eriston Vieira Gomes

    Takayasu arteritis is a chronic vasculitis (inflammation of the blood vessel wall) that affects the largest artery in the human body, the aorta, and its main branches. It is a disease which currently does not have a definitive cure and is of idiopathic aetiology. It predominantly affects women (80 to 90% of the affected people are female), aged 10 to 40 years, with a higher prevalence in Asian countries. Its symptoms start from simple systemic manifestations and may lead to serious complications in vital organs, such as congestive heart failure, stroke, and even death. As this is a rare disease, it is essential to be attentive to the minimum signs of its pathology and seeking an early diagnosis, consequently reducing the chance of mortality. This review aims to describe the symptoms of this pathology.The diagnostic methods present the main therapeutic approach and highlight the importance of an early diagnosis for the reduction of the complications caused by this health condition.

    Vasculitis in COVID-19: A Literature Review

    Salma Ahmad Almashat

    Vasculitis has been linked to COVID-19 as a suspected pathological pattern in different cases, however, it is not yet considered a major pathology. This virus has different clinical presentations including; dermatological and other organs involvement which are highly suggestive of the presence of vascular disease. Also, the histopathological examinations reveal ischemic and thrombotic changes. These changes were not associated with DIC or any other thrombotic conditions. The addition of other possible medications that might help in controlling such inflammatory syndrome could be the key to controlling this disease. This is a literature review highlights important features for this viral illness and suggests some therapeutic options

      Large Vessel Vasculitis as a Rare Paraneoplastic Effect of Endometrial Cancer

      Erin C. Saricilar

      A case of large vessel vasculitis as a paraneoplastic syndrome of endometrial cancer is presented which is the first documented case in the literature. Presenting initially as undifferentiated abdominal pain, routine tests presented no clear diagnosis beyond aortitis. PET scan and biopsy showed a non-Mullerian origin endometrial cancer, with the aortitis a likely paraneoplastic syndrome. This syndrome has been demonstrated in other cancers such as myelodysplastic syndromes albeit rarely, but this case opens up differential diagnoses for unexplained large vessel vasculitis cases.

      Introduction of Mesentery

      Alexandre Wagner Silva de Souza

      Mesenteries are double layers of peritoneum in the abdominal cavity and are continuations of the visceral and parietal peritoneum with the serous membranes adhered back to back so that the outer mesothelium secretes serous fluid into the peritoneal cavity. This decreases the friction between the adjacent visceral surfaces and allows some movement of the organs that occur during digestion. The mesentery attaches the intestines to the abdominal wall, and also helps storing the fat and allows the blood and lymph vessels, as well as the nerves, to supply the intestines.

      Jude Lim

      Lupus is a long-term autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissue. Symptoms include inflammation, swelling, and damage to the joints, skin, kidneys, blood, heart, and lungs. Lupus is a disease that predominantly affects women, often striking at the prime of life,” Somers says. “Through the MILES Program, we previously showed that for black women, who are disproportionately affected by lupus, their risk of lupus is highest in their Twentys.40% of black females with lupus have kidney involvement, and 15% have end-stage renal disease”.

      Purpura on the Lower Limb due to Medication

      Jude Lim

      Purpura is a condition of red or purple discolored spots on the skin that do not blanch on applying pressure. The spots are caused by bleeding underneath the skin secondary to platelet disorders, vascular disorders, coagulation disorders, or other causes. They measure 3–10 mm, whereas petechiae measure less than 3 mm, and ecchymoses greater than 1 cm. Purpura is common with typhus and can be present with meningitis caused by meningococci or septicaemia. In particular, meningococcus (Neisseria meningitidis), a Gram-negative diplococcus organism, releases endotoxin when it lyses. Endotoxin activates the Hageman factor, which causes disseminated intravascular coagulation. The DIC is what appears as a rash on the affected individual.

      A commentary on Infarction

      Mona Hosny

      Infarction is tissue death necrosis due to inadequate blood supply to the affected area. It may be caused by artery blockages, rupture, mechanical compression, or vasoconstriction. The resulting lesion is referred to as an infarct from the Latin infarctus, "stuffed into". Infarction, death of tissue resulting from a failure of blood supply, commonly due to obstruction of a blood vessel by a blood clot or narrowing of the blood-vessel channel. The dead tissue is called an infarct. Myocardial infarction heart attack death of a section of heart muscle results from obstruction of a coronary artery; the condition often accompanies coronary thrombosis. Infarctions may also occur in the lungs pulmonary infarction and the brain see stroke.
