Intravascular lymphoma (IVL) is a rare variant of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma characterised by neoplastic lymphoid cells growing inside the lumina of medium and small vessels. The diversity of clinical presentation owing to the possibility of its occurrence in any organ often makes it a challenging diagnosis. We present an intriguing case of intravascular large B-cell central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma in which the patient presented with a non-specific neurological symptom and had no systemic symptoms or dermatological manifestations. The patient deteriorated rapidly after presentation and succumbed to multi-organ failure within 2 weeks of admission. Source

Simulation allows interactive transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) learning using a virtual three-dimensional model of the heart and may aid in the acquisition of the cognitive and technical skills needed to perform TTE. The ability to link probe manipulation, cardiac anatomy, and echocardiographic images using a simulator has been shown to be an effective model for training anesthesiology residents in transesophageal echocardiography. A proposed alternative to real-time reality patient-based learning is simulation-based training that allows anesthesiologists to learn complex concepts and procedures, especially for specific structures such as aortic valve. © 2016 Annals of Cardiac Anaesthesia | Published by Wolters Kluwer - Medknow.

A case of multidrug resistance central nervous system tuberculosis is described. During the initial 6 months of therapy, intracranial embolic spread of tuberculomas from exudates around the proximal left middle cerebral artery was seen. This phenomenon was reported earlier. Further management, therapeutic considerations, particularly with secondary and tertiary line of antitubercular medication and neuroimaging are discussed. Copyright 2011 BMJ Publishing Group.

Paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration (PCD) is a rare disorder presenting typically with acute or subacute severe cerebellar ataxia. PCD is most commonly associated with small cell lung cancer followed by adenocarcinoma of breast and ovary, and Hogdkin′s lymphoma. We report a case of a 54-year-old male with acute-onset pancerebellar syndrome with underlying Hodgkin′s lymphoma. A high index of suspicion of PCD resulted in arriving at an early diagnosis of underlying Hodgkin′s disease. The patient was managed with six cycles of chemotherapy, which resulted in clinical stabilization and reversal of magnetic resonance imaging abnormalities. Antitumor therapy appears to have a significant impact on reversing PCD and hence early diagnosis and intervention for the primary remains the corner stone in stabilizing the neurological condition.
