Hello Friends,

here I am trying to initiate a new course with fresh cases. I hope that all of you are well, and doing your best during this horrible pandemia.

Dr Lago tells me that this is a 48 year-old man, heavy smoker for the last 30 years.

What do you think? What would you do? (No previous images were available).

Dear friends, this case was also provided by my good friend Dr Alberto Villanueva (SURREY AND SUSSEX HEALTHCARE NHS TRUST).
It-s good do get some help from other centers in this time of distress when the activity is basically centered on COVID 19. But, indeed other pathologies are there and will be present and we, as good alert radiologists must look carefully for pertinent findings always.

This is a 57 y/o male patient with known oncologic pathology ( jaw and neck neoplasms) that obliges to periodic examinations. He presents (Nov 2018) with weight loss.

ACE2 – A rational frontline therapy for COVID-19 summary

On Thursday March 12th, our ESR Connect studio was the epicenter of an important discussion on COVID-19 as we had the privilege to host professor Josef Penninger, world-leading geneticist and immunologist. Prof. Penninger delivered a compelling and important lecture on ACE2 and its role in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The lecture focused on the discovery and importance of angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2). Found in many organs, ACE2 positively affects blood pressure, kidney diseases, liver/lung fibrosis, and many other conditions. ACE creates angiotensin II which triggers angiotensin receptors AT1R and AT2R. This reaction can lead to lung edema and severe respiratory diseases, unless ACE2 is present. ACE2 molecules inactivate the bond between ACE and AngII and prevent the receptors from getting activated, thus protecting the organism from coming to harm. Read more…
