The duration of the illness usually lasts more than 6 months, with evidence of target organ damage, affecting mainly the skin, heart, and neurological system, without apparent aetiology. This case report details a case of hypereosinophilic syndrome in an 80-year-old man with multiple co-morbidities, who presented with unexplained peripheral eosinophilia, intermittent skin rashes, cardiac, respiratory, and abdominal symptoms. It is important to consider the diagnosis of hypereosinophilic syndrome when there is an unexplained peripheral eosinophilia, and thus intervene rapidly to prevent life-threatening complications.</p> Chong Sook Vui, Kua Chin Hong, Nan Nitra Than ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://journalajcrmh.com/index.php/AJCRMH/article/view/30107 Thu, 31 Oct 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Twin Babies, One Born with Gastroschisis & the Other with Sirenomelia in Fallujah Maternity & Children Hospital, Fallujah City, Iraq http://journalajcrmh.com/index.php/AJCRMH/article/view/30108 <p><strong>Back Ground:</strong> Both Sirenomelia &amp; Gastroschisis are very rare congenital anomalies &amp; it is extremely rare to find each of the two anomalies in both twins of one pregnancy, here we reported the two anomalies in one twin pregnancy.</p> <p><strong>Case Report:</strong> We reported twin pregnancy in G3p0A2 19 years old healthy woman who had irregular antenatal visits, ultrasound exam done 4 times during pregnancy, all shown monochorionic, diamniotic twins with polyhydromnia &amp; Gastroschisis, abnormal spine and sacrococcygeal teratoma in the 1<sup>st</sup> twin and oligohydromnia in the 2<sup>nd</sup> twin in which the&nbsp; anomaly was not clear &amp; later on the baby born with Sirenomelia.</p> <p>In all the references we reviewed we cauldn't find the two anomalies in one twin pregnancy and this case was considered to be the 1<sup>st</sup> reported case globally.</p> Samira Telfah Abdulghani ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://journalajcrmh.com/index.php/AJCRMH/article/view/30108 Thu, 31 Oct 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Metabolic Syndrome Associated with Subclinical Hypothyroidism and Vit D Insufficiency - A Case Report and Discussion http://journalajcrmh.com/index.php/AJCRMH/article/view/30109 <p>Metabolic syndrome (MetS) associated with hypothyroidism, was reported in literature. Like-wise association between hypothyroidism and Vit. D deficiency was reported. Hypothyroidism, Vit. D deficiency in DM2 patients was also reported, in the literature. But the occurrence of MetS, hypothyroidism and Vit. D deficiency, together occurring in a&nbsp;case was unreported. The author presented such triple association in a male patient aged 54 years. While Met S itself was a risk factor for CVD (cardiovascular vascular disease) and so were independently,&nbsp;the hypothyroidism and hypovitaminosis D, the triple association would have cumulative risk for CVD. So, it would be &nbsp;profitable &nbsp;to screen all MetS cases with hypothyroidism, for Vit. D deficiency also, in view of the possible cumulative risk. Literature was reviewed as to the relationship of MetS to hypothyroidism and Vit D deficiency, as well as the changing&nbsp;diagnostic criteria of MetS and it’s pathogenesis.</p> A. S. V.
