    Description: Cardiac inflammation/infection imaging with 18F-FDG has been very useful in guiding patient management in conditions such as cardiac sarcoidosis, myocarditis, device infections, and prosthetic implant-related infections. Various protocols have been described to suppress normal myocardial glucose uptake. Certainly, there is need for standardization of protocols but adaptation of protocol to suit individual patient needs is also equally important. In the current article in this issue, Alexandra Clément et al have shown that a 7-day ketogenic diet can be used as an alternative method in mice models. This may work well in humans who are unable to fast.

    Description: In this issue of Blood, Kastritis et al report growth differentiation factor-15 (GDF-15) as a novel biomarker for predicting early mortality, risk of progression to dialysis, and reduction in levels following treatment to predict improvement in survival in light chain (AL) amyloidosis.1

    Description: In this issue of Blood, Cibeira et al report long-term outcomes of 421 patients with AL amyloidosis undergoing autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) at a single center.1 Patients who achieved a complete hematologic response (CR) had impressively long hematologic remission, event-free survival (EFS) and overall survival (OS) of 12.7 years, 8.3 years, and 13.2 years, respectively.

    Description: In immunoglobulin light chain amyloidosis a small, indolent plasma cell clone synthesizes light chains that cause devastating organ damage. Early diagnosis, based on prompt recognition of "red-flags" before advanced cardiomyopathy ensues, is essential for improving outcomes. Differentiation from other systemic amyloidoses may require advanced technologies. Prognosis depends on the extent of cardiac involvement, and cardiac biomarkers guide the choice of therapy. The protean clinical presentation requires individualized treatment. Close monitoring of clonal and organ response guides therapy changes and duration. Conventional or high-dose alkylator-based chemotherapy is effective in almost two-thirds of patients. Combinations of proteasome inhibitors, dexamethasone, and alkylators achieve high response rates, although controlled studies are needed. Risk-adapted stem cell transplant and consolidation with novel agents may be considered in selected patients. Immune-modulatory drugs are good options for refractory/relapsed patients. Novel agents and therapeutic targets are expected to be exploited, in an integrated, more effective and less toxic treatment strategy.

    Description: Tissue deposition of protein fibrils causes a group of rare diseases called systemic amyloidoses. This Seminar focuses on changes in their epidemiology, the current approach to diagnosis, and advances in treatment. Systemic light chain (AL) amyloidosis is the most common of these conditions, but wild-type transthyretin cardiac amyloidosis (ATTRwt) is increasingly being diagnosed. Typing of amyloid fibrils, a critical determinant of therapy, has improved with the wide availability of laser capture and mass spectrometry from fixed histological tissue sections. Specific and accurate evaluation of cardiac amyloidosis is now possible using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and cardiac repurposing of bone scintigraphy tracers. Survival in AL amyloidosis has improved markedly as novel chemotherapy agents have become available, but challenges remain in advanced disease. Early diagnosis, a key to better outcomes, still remains elusive. Broadening the amyloid-specific therapeutic landscape to include RNA inhibitors, fibril formation stabilisers and inhibitors, and immunotherapeutic targeting of amyloid deposits holds promise to transform outcomes in systemic amyloidoses.

    Description: The authors present two cases that illustrate the frequent problem of late diagnosis that can arise when patients present with nonspecific clinical features. It is also possible that a lingering perception that amyloidosis is untreatable may discourage further diagnostic workup, which generally requires...

    Description: This case reports a bilateral asymmetrical posterior extension of the frontal sinuses into the orbital roof with an unusual expansion into the roof of the optic canal in a 55-year-old male cadaver. The posterior extensions of the sinus were lined by mucoperiosteum and were separated from the underlying orbital contents and optic nerve by a thin plate of bone. This knowledge of an unusual anatomic variation of the frontal sinus may help understand better the ocular and intracranial complications associated with frontal sinus pathologies.

    Description: Are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) associated with better outcomes than cyclooxygenase inhibitors, glucocorticoids, IL-1 inhibitors or placebo in the treatment of acute gout? NSAIDs are not significantly associated with a difference in pain reduction compared with cyclooxygenase inhibitors and glucocorticoids for treating acute gout. However, NSAIDs are associated with higher rates of adverse events and higher rates of withdrawal due to adverse events compared with cyclooxygenase inhibitors.
