LABORATORY AND DIAGNOSTIC DATA: INR 2.14, white count 9400, hemoglobin 11.4, hematocrit 34.2, and platelets 288,000. Sodium 136, potassium 5.2, chloride 96, CO2 of 26, glucose 94, BUN 84, creatinine 8.6, and calcium 9.8. Echocardiogram revealed mildly diminished left ventricular systolic function with hypertensive cardiovascular disease. The porcine prosthesis appeared to be functioning normally. MRI of the brain revealed bilobed versus adjacent pituitary lesions. These could represent pituitary adenomas; although, choristomas could not be excluded given the posterior location. Rathke’s cleft cyst also cannot be excluded. There is no impingement on the optic chiasm. The remainder of the brain demonstrated moderate degree of a small vessel ischemia. Chest x-ray revealed COPD, cardiomegaly, and no significant change from the prior exam. Blood cultures x2 were negative.

BUN 22, creatinine 1.4, and calcium 9.8. Liver function test was within normal limits. ALT 23, AST 19, within normal limits. HDL 74, LDL 92, triglycerides 192, cholesterol 154, VLDL 38.

Renal ultrasound done shows slight increase in the echotexture of the kidneys, which is nonspecific. There are two systemic kidneys bilaterally with Bosniak category I and II cysts in the kidneys bilaterally. Bosniak category cyst in the left kidney should be reassessed with a followup ultrasound in 3 to 6 months to document stability. CT of the pelvis showed severe circumferential wall thickening of the colon compatible with pseudomembranous colitis. Findings have markedly progressed. CT of the abdomen again showed marked circumferential wall thickening of the entire colon. The pattern was compatible with pseudomembranous colitis.

DIAGNOSTIC AND LAB STUDIES: A chest x-ray obtained and read showed no obvious infiltrate or pneumothorax. She had an initial EKG read as sinus tachycardia with a rate of 106. She had inverted T-waves in leads III and aVF as well as V1 through V6. We repeated this EKG and read it again probably an hour later. This showed a sinus rhythm with the T-wave inversions that we saw earlier all completely resolved. She had a rate of 90 on this EKG. She had laboratory studies, including a normal troponin, a normal D-dimer. White count 7.2, hemoglobin 13.4, hematocrit 39.8. She had a glucose of 92, BUN 14, creatinine 0.8, sodium 136, potassium 3.6, chloride 106, CO2 of 26.
