424. Implantation of a pleurovenous shunt for massive chylothorax in a patient with yellow nail syndrome. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Implantation of a pleurovenous shunt for massive chylothorax in a patient with yellow nail syndrome. Yellow nail syndrome is a type of lymphatic dysplasia syndrome characterised by the triad of yellow nails, lymphoedema, and pleural effusions. The case history is presented of a 70 year old patient with yellow nail syndrome who complained of dyspnoea caused by massive chylothorax. The patient underwent insertion of a pleuroperitoneal shunt which resulted in abdominal distension and deterioration (...) of leg oedema. The pleuroperitoneal shunt was replaced by a pleurovenous shunt on the right side which led to an improvement in the bilateral pleural effusions, abdominal distension, and leg oedema.

425. Yellow Nail Syndrome: Analysis of 41 Consecutive Patients. (Abstract)

Yellow Nail Syndrome: Analysis of 41 Consecutive Patients. Yellow nail syndrome (YNS) is a rare condition defined by the presence of yellow nails associated with lymphedema and/or chronic respiratory manifestations. Several aspects of this disorder remain poorly defined.We sought to clarify the clinical features and course associated with YNS by analyzing 41 consecutive cases evaluated at a tertiary referral medical center.There were 20 men and 21 women; median age at diagnosis was 61 years (...) and decortication; two additional patients underwent pleurodesis via tube thoracostomy. The yellow nails improved or resolved in 14 of 25 patients (56%) for whom relevant data were available. Median survival of this cohort using the Kaplan-Meier method was 132 months, significantly lower than (p = 0.01) the control population. Among those still alive (20 patients), the disease appeared stable.In most cases, YNS is an acquired disorder and associated respiratory manifestations are generally manageable

426. Yellow nail syndrome in three siblings: a randomized double-blind trial of topical vitamin E. (Abstract)

Yellow nail syndrome in three siblings: a randomized double-blind trial of topical vitamin E. Yellow nail syndrome is an uncommon disorder characterized by dystrophic nails, lymphedema, and respiratory disease. It has rarely been reported in children and this is the first report of congenital yellow nails in siblings. The purpose of this study was to determine whether topical vitamin E applied to the nail plates and periungual skin would affect the growth rate or appearance of the fingernails (...) , although these were not primary end points of the study. Topical vitamin E did not result in a statistically significant improvement when compared with oil alone for the treatment of the nails in our three patients with yellow nail syndrome. However, it is interesting and perhaps clinically useful that both vitamin E and placebo oil improved the condition of the nails.

427. Yellow nail syndrome: not a genetic disorder? Eleven new cases and a review of the literature. (Abstract)

Yellow nail syndrome: not a genetic disorder? Eleven new cases and a review of the literature. Yellow nail syndrome (YNS) is characterized by the triad of characteristic nail changes, chronic respiratory disorders and primary lymphoedema. Over 100 cases have been published, most of which have been sporadic. Despite this, YNS is classified as a dominantly inherited lymphoedema with variable expression. There have been only a few published reports where a positive family history (FH) has been (...) of patients in our study, the late onset of the disease and recovery of nail changes in our patients suggest that YNS may not be primarily a genetic disease as it is currently classified.

in most individuals revealed hypoplasia, or aplasia of the lymphatics, similar to that occurring in primary lymphoedema: other patients also developed pleural effusions of high protein content or ascites suggestive of a more generalised disorder of the lymphatic system. Here we describe a patient in whom the classical 'yellow-nail' syndrome was associated with intestinal and chylous ascites. (...) Chylous ascites, intestinal lymphangiectasia and the 'yellow-nail' syndrome. In 1964 Samman and White described 13 patients with lymphoedema of the lower extremities associated with an unusual dystrophy of the finger and toe nails: this they termed the 'yellow-nail' syndrome. Affected nails were thickened, excessively curved along both axes, very slow growing and of yellowish-grey hue; cuticle and lunula were usually absent and onycholysis was frequently evident.

432. Coexistent yellow nail syndrome and selective antibody deficiency. (Abstract)

Coexistent yellow nail syndrome and selective antibody deficiency. Yellow nail syndrome (YNS) is a rare, often underdiagnosed condition of unknown origin. The clinical features of the syndrome include yellow nails, chronic sinusitis, bronchiectasis, pleural effusion, and lymphoedema. Despite the frequent occurrence of upper and lower respiratory tract infections in patients with YNS, comprehensive analysis of their humoral immunity has not been previously reported.To present the case (...) of a patient with YNS whose recurrent upper and lower respiratory tract infections may have been caused by an underlying selective antibody deficiency that manifests as impaired IgG antibody response to polysaccharide antigens.The patient underwent cultures of purulent sputum for Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae, bronchial washings for H. influenzae, and nail scrapings for fungi.
