  Diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, optic atrophy, and deafness: A case of Wolfram (DIDMOAD) syndrome Journal of Current Ophthalmology 27 (2015) Journal 0.13 Nasrollah Maleki a,*, Bahman Bashardoust a, Anahita Zakeri a, Azita Salehifar b, Zahra Tavosi 4 از 5 نفر
Purpose: To report a case of Wolfram syndrome (WS) characterized by diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, progressive optic atrophy, and deafness. Case report: A 19-year-old female patient, a known case of diabetes mellitus type I from six years before, presented with progressive vision loss since four years earlier. On fundoscopic examination, she had bilateral optic atrophy without diabetic retinopathy. The patient also had diabetes insipidus, neurosensory deafness, and neurogenic bladder. Conclusion: WS should be considered a differential diagnosis in patients with diabetes mellitus who present with optic atrophy, and it is necessary to perform a hearing test as well as collecting 24-h urine output.

  Successful Use of Central Venous Catheters for the Management of Recurrent Malignant Pleural Effusions: One New Option Supportive Care in Cancer DOI 10.1007/s00520-014-2595-3 (2015) Journal 2.6 Abbas Yazdanbod, Azita Salehifar, Nasrollah Maleki, Shahram Habibzadeh & Zahra Tavosi 2 از 5 نفر
Background Malignant pleural effusion (MPE) is a common clinical problem in patients with malignancy. To date, placement of various catheters has been suggested as an effective alternative method for traditional treatment of recurrent MPE. In this study, we report our experience in managing treatment of recurrent MPE by placing a central vein catheter without a radiologic guide. Methods Patients with recurrent MPE who underwent triplelumen central vein catheter insertion (2010–2013) were retrospectively reviewed. Clinical, procedural, complication, and outcome details were analyzed. Patients were carefully selected, and the central catheters were inserted as a palliative measure. We assessed the quality of life of patients using the EORTC QLQ-C30. Results A total of 84 patients with recurrent MPE were enrolled in this study. Fifty-six males and 28 females with mean age of 57.8±12.4 years old underwent the procedure. There were no preoperative or postoperative complications related to the procedure. The EORTC QLQ-C30 questionnaire showed a significant improvement following catheter placement in symptom scales at 30 days (p=0.01) and at 60 days (p= 0.002). Conclusions Triple-lumen central catheter insertion is a simple, noninvasive option in patients with recurrent MPE that can be performed the patient’s bedside. Further research is needed to confirm the results and to assess the impact of central catheter insertion on the quality of life of these patients.
