11/540. Massive extramedullary disease progression in a patient with stable multiple myeloma during G-CSF priming for peripheral blood progenitor mobilization.

    High dose therapy followed by autologous peripheral blood progenitor cell (PBPC) transplantation has recently become an encouraging treatment option for younger patients with multiple myeloma (MM). The influence of the growth factors used for progenitor mobilization on myeloma cells is not known. We report on a patient suffering from IgG kappa myeloma who had been in stable, very good partial remission for seven months after standard therapy until PBPC mobilization with granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF, Filgrastim) was initiated. Massive extramedullary disease progression occured coincidentally with the administration of G-CSF. The case suggest the possibility of myeloma stimulation by G-CSF during PBPC mobilization.

12/540. Portal hypertension secondary to arterio-portal fistulae: two unusual cases.

    A 62-year-old male presented with variceal haemorrhage. Investigation demonstrated a fistula between the left gastric artery and portal vein with a porto-systemic gradient of 35 mm Hg. Variceal bleeding was controlled by a transcatheter embolisation of the fistula, but the patient died of septicaemia three weeks later. The second patient, a 42-year-old male who presented with variceal bleeding was shown to have diffuse arterio-venous fistulae involving the right lobe of the liver with a portosystemic gradient of 25 mm Hg. In this case the variceal bleeding was successfully controlled by insertion of a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS). The pathogenesis of portal hypertension in arterioportal fistulae and the role of interventional radiological techniques in the management of variceal bleeding in these patients is discussed.

13/540. Recalcitrant acne vulgaris secondary to a dental abscess.

    This case report describes a middle-aged man with acne that was recalcitrant to numerous medications, including three courses of isotretinoin. His condition cleared after an infected tooth was removed and recurred when another tooth became carious. acne vulgaris is associated with several immunologic responses including the production of antibodies against propionibacterium acnes, the gram-positive bacteria found in acne lesions. We believe that the presence of our patient's dental infections provoked a follicular inflammatory response resulting in his recalcitrant acne.

14/540. Intrathoracic application of the reverse latissimus dorsi muscle flap.

    The use of the reverse latissimus dorsi muscle flap based on its paraspinous perforators for posterior trunk wound coverage has been described previously. However, few studies have reported its intrathoracic application. In this study the authors present their experience in treating 3 patients with various intrathoracic defects using the reverse latissimus dorsi muscle flap. There were 1 male and 2 female patients who ranged in age from 4 to 74 years (mean, 49 years). The etiology included an infected aortic graft, a bronchopleural fistula, and a recurrent congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Follow-up ranged from 2 to 24 months. Successful outcomes were achieved in all 3 patients, and there was no recurrence or wound complication identified. Their results demonstrate the versatility and reliability of the reverse latissimus dorsi muscle flap in treating low posterior intrathoracic defects.

15/540. Recurrent acute suppurative thyroiditis in a child: case report.

    A 23-month-old girl presented with a history of persistent fever and growing left anterior neck mass following an upper respiratory tract infection. Laboratory studies revealed leukocytosis, elevated levels of the erythrocyte sedimentation rate and c-reactive protein, and a mild impairment of thyroid function. Thyroid scan showed a decreased radioactive iodine uptake of the left thyroid gland. culture of the thyroid aspirate grew the mixed flora, viridans streptococci, prevotella spp, and peptostreptococcus magnus. She was discharged after a surgical drainage and a 14-day course of penicillin-G therapy. Unfortunately, she was readmitted for the resembling problems, the fever and progressing left anterior neck mass 3 months later. culture of thyroid aspirate also grew the viridans streptococci. She recovered after a 14-day course of penicillin-G therapy. A left pyriform sinus fistula was found by barium esophagogram. A selective operation was performed 8 weeks later.

16/540. Paradoxical pulmonary embolism secondary to aortocaval fistula: diagnosis by helical CT.

    Spontaneous aortocaval fistula is an unusual but well recognized complication of abdominal aortic aneurysm. Reports of aortocaval fistula as the source of pulmonary embolism are rare. We report a case of paradoxical pulmonary embolism secondary to an aortocaval fistula. The abdominal aortic aneurysm and the associated aortocaval fistula were well demonstrated on helical CT, leading to early diagnosis and prompt surgical treatment with good clinical outcome.

17/540. A case of antiphospholipid antibody syndrome diagnosed after thrombosis of an arteriovenous shunt.

    A 32-year-old male dialysis patient with lupus nephritis was admitted because of shunt obstruction. The arteriovenous fistula was reconstructed, but obstruction recurred twice within several hours after surgery. A high blood level of anticardiolipin beta2-glycoprotein I antibody suggested that shunt obstruction was caused by a thrombotic tendency related to the antiphospholipid antibody syndrome. Accordingly, for the third shunt procedure, antiplatelet therapy (which had been commenced for systemic lupus erythematosus) was combined with dalteparin sodium from before surgery and warfarin was added postoperatively. This regimen prevented shunt obstruction. In conclusion, hemodialysis patients who suffer repeated shunt obstruction should be examined for antiphospholipid antibody syndrome.

18/540. gingival hemorrhage, myelodysplastic syndromes, and acute myeloid leukemia. A case report.

    Myelodysplasia syndrome (MDS) presenting as spontaneous gingival hemorrhage is described. gingival hemorrhage is recognized as a symptom of MDS, a rare group of potentially fatal hematological disorders, but it has not previously been documented as a presenting sign. The diagnostic pitfalls are discussed with the case, and the need for careful interpretation of laboratory findings in conjunction with clinical signs is emphasized. Finally, the MDSs are defined, classified and discussed with respect to their relevance to the clinical periodontist, from a diagnostic, therapeutic, and management standpoint.

19/540. Treatment of central giant cell granuloma of the jaw with calcitonin.

    Giant cell granuloma of the jaw is a benign lesion that may cause local destruction of bone and displacement of teeth. The common therapy is curettage or resection, which may be associated with loss of teeth and, in younger patients, loss of dental germs. An alternative treatment has recently been introduced, in which patients receive a daily dose of calcitonin. Four patients who have been treated with calcitonin in various concentrations for at least 1 year are reported. In all patients, complete remission of the giant cell granuloma was observed, without signs of recurrence. The working mechanism of calcitonin is discussed, as are length of treatment and optimal dose.

20/540. An outbreak of acute eosinophilic myositis attributed to human sarcocystis parasitism.

    Seven members of a 15-man U.S. military team that had operated in rural malaysia developed an acute illness consisting of fever, myalgias, bronchospasm, fleeting pruritic rashes, transient lymphadenopathy, and subcutaneous nodules associated with eosinophilia, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and elevated levels of muscle creatinine kinase. Sarcocysts of an unidentified sarcocystis species were found in skeletal muscle biopsies of the index case. albendazole ameliorated symptoms in the index case; however, his symptoms persisted for more than 5 years. Symptoms in 5 other men were mild to moderate and self-limited, and 1 team member with laboratory abnormalities was asymptomatic. Of 8 team members tested for antibody to sarcocystis, 6 were positive; of 4 with the eosinophilic myositis syndrome who were tested, all were positive. We attribute this outbreak of eosinophilic myositis to accidental tissue parasitism by sarcocystis.
