AbstractAbstract PDF
Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) peritonitis is a major complication of peritoneal dialysis (PD) and leads to the discontinuation of PD. Despite its limited pathogenicity, CAPD peritonitis caused by Stenotrophomonas maltophilia (S. maltophilia), an important nosocomial pathogen that is present in nature and is usually associated with plastic indwelling devices. Infection of S. maltophilia is associated with a poor prognosis, including inability to maintain the CAPD catheter, because of its resistance to multiple antibiotics. We report a case of CAPD peritonitis due to S. maltophilia that was treated successfully using oral Trimethoprim-sulfame-thoxazole and intraperitoneal Ticarcillin/clavulanate without removing the dialysis catheter.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Wegener's granulomatosis is a very rare systemic vasculitis characterized by necrotizing granulomatosis. The detection of antineutrophil cytoplasm antibody (ANCA) is a valuable finding in diagnosing Wegener's granulomatosis because ANCA is positive in approximately 90 percent of patients with active, generalized Wegener's granulomatosis. But ANCA is not necessarily positive to make a diagnosis. A 59-year-old man was transferred to our hospital. He was diagnosed with lung abscess and treated with antibiotics at previous hospital. Initially, the ANCA was negative in immunofluorescence assay but we suspected Wegener's granulomatosis because of systemic inflammatory symptoms. Clinical symptoms deteriorated rapidly so we did bronchoscopic biopsy early. Wegener's granulomatosis was diagnosed according to pathologic finding that reported necrotizing granulomatous inflammation associated with vasculitis. Thus we treated with steroid then clinical symptoms and laboratory findings were improved.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Membranous glomerulonephritis can manifest as a paraneoplastic syndrome. The presence of evidence that supports the relationship between malignancy and membranous glomerulonephritis remains unresolved, though. Membranous glomerulonephritis has been commonly reported as associated with solid or hematologic malignancy, such as lung cancer, prostate cancer, and gastro-intestinal cancer, but its concomitant existence with skin cancer is rare. This paper reports a case of membranous glomerulonephritis combined with basal cell carcinoma that was successfully treated with the excision of the basal skin cell carcinoma.
