This is a retrospective case presentation of a 49-year-old African Caribbean female patient presented to Accident and Emergency with unilateral persistent acute history of reduced central vision of left eye for 10 days with no other associated symptoms. Treatment options included using scatter (pan-retinal) laser photocoagulation followed by intravitreal injections as the area of non-perfusion is &gt;5-disc area. It is warranted to understand the risk factors associated with BRVO and to develop appropriate treatment and follow-up plans.</p> Noha Soliman Copyright (c) 2022 Global Journal of Medical Case Reports 2022-10-28 2022-10-28 9 15 Cardiac Hydatid Cyst: A Case Report https://www.scipublications.com/journal/index.php/gjmcr/article/view/195 <p>Although rarely, echinococcosis might present cardiac involvement, with cysts growing inside myocardial structures of arising adjacent to heart. A careful differential diagnosis with other mass formations and rare cardiac tumours is necessary, whenever there is a clinical and radiological suspicion. Imaging studies and serology will establish diagnosis. A multidisciplinary approach is warranted in all cases, with surgical intervention being unavoidable in most settings. Patients generally present with chest pain and dyspnoea. Cases need a close follow up of their postoperative course, while being treated appropriately with albendazole (or mebendazole) for prevention of recurrences.</p> Edlira Rruci Ketjon Menkshi Saimir Kuçi Afërdita Veseli Gentian Vyshka Copyright (c) 2022 Global Journal of Medical Case Reports 2022-01-10 2022-01-10 1 4 Giant Cell Arteritis: A Case Report https://www.scipublications.com/journal/index.php/gjmcr/article/view/482 <p>Giant cell arteritis (GCA) with ocular involvement is an emergency condition, and treatment with glucocorticoids should be provided immediately upon clinical suspicion of GCA to prevent potential blindness.

We present a case of a 31-year-old gravida 1 para 0 at 28.6 weeks who presented to the emergency room with a 2-month history of progressive lower left leg swelling since 21.2 weeks’ gestation. The patient endorsed incidence of domestic violence at 17 weeks’ gestation. The patient had a twin sister who was also pregnant and had not experienced these symptoms. Physical exam revealed 3+ pitting edema in the left lower extremity from ankle to groin. There was left calf tenderness with negative Homan’s sign bilaterally. Overall finding on magnetic resonance angiography revealed severe compression of the upper left common iliac vein and lower inferior vena cava by gravid uterus. Conservative management and anticoagulation is instrumental in preventing veno-thromboembolic events in pregnancies complicated by MTS.</p> Olufemi Ajibade Radhika Malhotra Lamarr Tyler Siri Kjos David Howard Copyright (c) 2022 Global Journal of Medical Case Reports 2022-02-04 2022-02-04 5 8
