By not excluding papers based on novelty, this journal facilitates the research and wishes to publish papers as long as they are technically correct and scientifically motivated. The journal also encourages the submission of useful reports of negative results. This is a quality controlled, OPEN peer-reviewed, open-access INTERNATIONAL journal.</p> A Case of Bilateral Deep Vein Thrombosis with Bilateral Pulmonary Embolism after Mild Covid Infection 2022-09-23T11:06:30+00:00 T. Shrignanaprasannambika Akash Thomas Oomen Renoy Henry <p><strong>Aim:</strong> Bilateral thromboembolic manifestations in mild COVID infection.</p> <p><strong>Case Presentation:</strong> 64-year-old male with no known comorbidities presented to OPD with pain and swelling of the right lower limb, and chest pain. He was found to have bilateral lower limb deep vein thrombosis in venous Doppler and bilateral pulmonary embolism in CT pulmonary angiogram. He improved with medical management.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> COVID-19 infection is associated with thromboembolic complications. A high index of suspicion of thromboembolic manifestations secondary to COVID infection even in mild cases should be considered after ruling out other possibilities.</p> 2022-09-23T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Cortical White-matter Lesions as Initial Radiologic Finding in Carbon Monoxide Intoxication: A Case Report 2022-09-24T10:40:47+00:00 L. M. Koenjer E. A. Kleinveld B. F. L. Van Nuenen <p><strong>Aims:</strong> Present a case of carbon monoxide (CO)-intoxication with initial presence of cortical lesions instead of globus pallidus lesions, to create awareness of atypical or late MRI findings in patients with CO-intoxication.</p> <p><strong>Presentation of the Case: </strong>A 27 year old women with no medical history presents with a reduced level of consciousness due to CO-intoxication. After a lucid interval of two to three days, patient develops altered behavior, headache and loss of short term memory. This symptoms worsen and seven days after discharge she is readmitted to the hospital. MRI of the cerebrum shows cortical hypoxic lesions, but no abnormalities in the basal ganglia. There is only little clinical improvement in the following weeks. Repeated MRI on day 20 shows newly developed lesions in the globus pallidus, pathognomic for CO-intoxication.</p> <p><strong>Discussion and Conclusion:</strong> This case demonstrates how radiologic lesions can develop until weeks after the clinical presentation in patients with CO-intoxication, and that cortical lesions can develop in the absence of globus pallidus lesions. CO-induced cerebral lesions can be explained by several complex mechanisms, not only by hypoxia.</p> 2022-09-24T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
