Abstract

Endobronchial tuberculosis (EBTB) is defined as tuberculosis (TB)infection of the tracheobronchial tract. Tracheal and bronchial involvement from TB infection was first reported by Morten in 1698. Endobronchial tuberculosis is a form of TB that is difficult to diagnose because the lesions are frequently undetectable by sputum examination and chest X-ray alone. Endobronchial tuberculosis is present in 10-40% of active TB patients and more than 90% of cases are accompanied by bronchial stenosis of various degrees. The main goal of therapy in active EBTB is to eradicate Mycobacterium tuberculosis in the tracheobronchial tract and further prevent stenosis. Complications of EBTB apart from airway stenosis are atelectasis, haemoptysis and shortness of breath accompanied by wheezing even after administration of anti-tuberculosis drugs (ATD).

Abstract

ounds: The cytological and histopathological findings establish the type of lung cancer cells as the definitive diagnosis of lung cancer. This study aimed to determine the characteristics of lung cancer patients in terms of age, mean age, gender, staging, the proportion of lung cancer cells by cytologic examination of Transthoracic Needle Aspiration (TTNA) and histopathologic evaluation from CT-guided core biopsy. Method: This is a descriptive study involving 42 subjects diagnosed with lung cancer at H. Adam Malik Hospital Medan in 2016-2020 that met the inclusion criteria through consecutive sampling. Data was analysed using descriptive statistics for categorical variables. Results: Of 42 study subjects, the 60–71-year age group had the highest percentage of lung cancer (42.9%). Male (71.4%) was higher than female, the most common lung cancer staging was IVA (57.1%), and adenocarcinoma was found to be the most frequent type of lung cancer in both cytology (33.3%) and histopathology (31.0%). Conclusion: We concluded that core biopsy is superior in diagnosing lung cancer compared to TTNA.

Abstract

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a communicable disease caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).  December 2019 in Wuhan, China, is the time and place where the first pneumonia case which SARS-CoV-2 causes was found, and WHO designated COVID-19 as a pandemic by March 2020. There are reported cases of dyslipidemia associated with SARS patients, albeit rare. Several case reports showed lower cholesterol levels compared to healthy subjects. Therefore, some argued that dyslipidemia could occur in COVID-19. Several studies have revealed that hypolipidemia is positively correlated with the severity of COVID-19. In Ulin Regional Hospital Banjarmasin, several cases found higher cholesterol levels in asymptomatic and mild-moderate COVID—19 survivor compared to patients with severe/critical COVID-19and non-survivor. Two patients in the non-survivor group showed a significant decrease in cholesterol level compared to baseline, and five patients had <150 mg/dL cholesterol level during the examination. Four mild-moderate COVID-19 survivors had cholesterol levels that were greater than 150 mg/dL at the first examination and did not decrease during the evaluation. Cholesterol is thought to play an important role in the pathological development of COVID-19, and it is associated with severity and mortality, which requires further studies.

Abstract

Backgrounds: There is a wide range of individual responses to mycobacterium infection. However, the reason why certain people suffers from a disease when they are infected with mycobacterium while others remain healthy is still unknown. Genetic susceptibility is thought to be one of the important explanatory factors for individuals with the risk of developing pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). FokI polymorphism was one of the genetic variations within the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene associated with pulmonary TB. In the present study, we investigated the association between VDR gene FokI polymorphism and pulmonary TB. Conclusion: There was no significant association between the VDR gene FokI polymorphism and pulmonary TB.

Abstract

Backgrounds: Pulmonary rehabilitation is a non-pharmacological therapy that improves breathing capacity in lung cancer patients. This study aimed to determine the effects of incentive spirometry (IS) on exercise capacity, breathing symptoms, depression rates, and quality of life in lung cancer patients with chemotherapy. Method: This quasi-experimental study was done through purposive sampling of 32 lung cancer patients who underwent chemotherapy for at least three cycles at Dr. Moewardi General Regional Hospital, Surakarta, from December 2019 to February 2020.Data on 6 minutes walking test (6-MWT) to evaluate exercise capacity, breathing symptoms (BORG scale), level of depression (HRSD questionnaire), and quality of life (SGRQ questionnaire) . Results: Experimental group showed higher value of 6-MWT (72.75±152.50 meters vs. 31.81 ± 27.67, P=0.010), a decrease in the BORG scale (-1.78±1.72 vs. -0.38±1.67, P=0.013), Hamilton's score improvement (-2.25±5.12 vs. -4.25±5.34, P=0.075), and improvement in the SGRQ value (-10.77±9.82 vs. -0.08±11.16, P=0.752) compared to those of control group.

Abstract

Chest wall syndrome is the most frequent cause of chest pain complained by patients admitted to the physician’s office, in outward as well as in emergency department. It may affect all ages with sex ratio of 1:1 between man and woman. History of illness and sensibility to palpation or tenderness were the keys to the diagnostic approach. Pain was generally moderate, well localized, continuous or intermittent over a number of hours to days or weeks and was amplified by position or movement that was commonly located on the left side of the chest. Chest wall syndrome is usually a common and benign condition, but it leads to anxiety and frequent recurrence. Definitive treatment is not yet confirmed and treatment for the different condition causing isolated musculoskeletal chest pain is poor. Therefore, some options to avoid aggravating physical activities, stretching, and simple analgesics as needed are the best choices of current management.
