Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.283
ABSTRACT
 
This is a case report of a patient who developed chronic renal dysfunction and neurologic emergency with multiple cranial lesions after liver transplantation. Immune-complex glomerulonephritis was confirmed on the basis of histopathologic evaluation of the renal biopsy. According to clinical features and brain magnetic resonance imaging follow-up, neuroradiographic atypical reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy syndrome (RPLS) was finally diagnosed.

Adverse Reaction of Topical Etofenamate: Petechial Eruption

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.029
Pages: 
767–9

Etofenamate is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Clinical findings caused by etofenamate
are uncommon. Allergic contact dermatitis is the most common cutaneous reaction reported. But
petechial eruption due to etofenamate had not been reported yet. This report concerns an 11-year old
male with petechial eruption after application of topical etofenamate.
Physicians need to be aware that patients can develop an asymptomatic purpuric eruption when
etofenamate is ordered.

Orbital Lymphangioma in a Child: A Diagnostic Dilemma

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.192
Pages: 
764–6

We report a case of significant unilateral left proptosis after a fall in a 10-year old child. Magnetic
resonance imaging showed an extraconal hyperintense orbital mass extending into the maxillary sinus
which was opacified. After drainage the proptosis resolved. The cause of the acute proptosis was
haemorrhage within an orbital lymphangioma.
