A Male Patient with Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection and A Bicuspid Aortic Valve

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare and emergent condition where a tear in the intimal portion of the coronary artery produces ischemia to the myocardium – mimicking coronary atherosclerotic obstruction. SCAD is typically found in younger and middle-aged females (around 87-95% of cases) and has a relatively high rate of recurrence with one prospective cohort demonstrating a 10.4% recurrence rate. This same cohort indicates a high association between SCAD and connective tissue disorders. It is estimated that connective tissue disorders and arteriopathies ....

The Significant Efficacy of Botulinum Toxin for DeafnessDystonia Syndrome Caused by ACTB Gene Mutation

Deafness-Dystonia Syndrome (DDS) is a rare and complicated disorder which can be caused by a pathogenic heterozygous mutation c.547C>T, p.(Arg183Trp) in the ACTB gene, typically leading to a combination of hearing impairment and dystonia. We presented a case of a patient with DDS associated with this mutation. Our report could further expand the phenotype of DDS, containing short stature, flattened zygomatic region and small pointed chin. In addition....
