  • Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Sunitinib has become a standard treatment agent for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) for several years. However, various adverse events have been reported. We present a rare adverse effect of hyperammonemic encephalopathy induced by sunitinib. A 66-year-old woman with metastatic RCC referred to the[…][]

Trp impairments on performance tests dose related. All doses increased mental sedation.[]

  • Sarcoidosis

    (especially the erythrocyte sedimentation rate, ESR ).[] Diagnosing sarcoidosis becomes challenging, particularly when its complications cause patients' symptoms to mimic other conditions, including polymyositis, Sjögren syndrome[] In her case, the increased calcitriol is derived from sarcoid granulomas and renal sources enhanced by the effect of estradiol and prolactin on the conversion of 25(OH)D to[]
