Pheochromocytoma is a rare neuroendocrine tumor. We report a case of pheochromocytoma-induced cardiomyopathy in an 18-year old white female. A review of the literature indicated that this is the most dramatic reversal of pheochromocytoma cardiomyopathy reported. With aggressive medical management, there was complete recovery of the hemodynamic, echocardiographic, and electrocardiographic ...

Although not universally accepted, evidence exists that clozapine treatment may be associated with neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS). To date, 10 cases of NMS associated with the use of clozapine have been reported in the literature. We report two more cases of NMS in patients on clozapine treatment and review the ...

We report the case of a 72-year-old male patient who developed a florid photosensitive eruption while on ranitidine therapy. Ultraviolet A sensitivity was detected by irradiation monochromator testing, suggesting drug-induced photosensitivity. Ranitidine was concluded to be the cause of his photosensitivity since the eruption resolved and the phototest abnormalities returned ...

Three cases of ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA)-induced leukoagglutination noted on peripheral blood films are reported. Two cases of EDTA-induced agglutination of benign lymphocytes, and one case of EDTA-induced mature neutrophil satellitosis about immature neutrophil were observed. EDTA-induced agglutination of malignant lymphoid cells has been reported in blood films from patients ...

The imputability of heparin in heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) was analysed retrospectively in the chart records of 86 cases documented by the Centre Regional de Pharmacovigilance (CRPV) of Reims-Champagne Ardenne over a period of 10 years. Considerable difficulties are encountered in evaluating the degree of imputability. Chronological criteria seem to ...

Although the occurrence of skin lesions during long-term hydroxyurea therapy is well known, longitudinal melanonychia (LM) are more rarely described. In the present paper, we report four cases of LM associated with skin lesions induced by long-term daily hydroxyurea therapy (4 to 10 years), characterized by two uncommon aspects: late ...

Respiratory dyskinesia is a common but under-recognized side effect of chronic neuroleptic administration. It manifests as irregular respiration, dyspnea, grunting or gasping, and abnormal chest or esophageal movements. It occurs almost exclusively in association with other tardive effects of neuroleptics, such as tardive dyskinesia and tardive akathisia. Complications of the ...

To identify patients examined in the Mayo Clinic Department of Dermatology whose pemphigus was attributable to an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor and to compare these cases with previously reported cases of drug-induced pemphigus. A retrospective review of medical records revealed two cases of captopril-induced pemphigus and one of enalapril-induced pemphigus. Our ...

Long-term experience with clozapine has shown that the agent has a motor and mental side effect profile that is distinct in many ways from classical neuroleptics. It can produce a parkinsonian-like bradykinesia and mild akathisia, but no rigidity and rarely tremor. In patients with tardive dyskinesia induced by other neuroleptics, ...

Pentamidine isethionate has been associated with ventricular tachyarrhythmias, including torsade de pointes. This article reports two cases of this complication and reviews all reported cases to date. Pentamidine-induced torsade de pointes may be related to serum magnesium levels and hypomagnesemia may synergistically induce torsade. Torsade de pointes occurred after an ...

A five-year prospective study of chloramphenicol induced aplastic anaemia in Nigerians was undertaken. Five proven cases were seen, representing 45.5% of all cases of aplastic anaemia diagnosed during the period of study and 1.0 cases per year. Chloramphenicol induced aplastic anaemia is rare (only 0.002% of all new non-obstetric patients ...

A patient with sinus bradycardia and atrioventricular block, induced by carbamazepine, prompted an extensive literature review of all previously reported cases. From the analysis of these cases, two distinct forms of carbamazepine-associated cardiac dysfunction emerged. One patient group developed sinus tachycardias in the setting of a massive carbamazepine overdose. The ...
