Accuracy of interleukin-27 assay for the diagnosis of tuberculous pleurisy: A PRISMA-compliant meta-analysis.

The concentration of interleukin-27 (IL-27) in pleural effusions was found to be increased in tuberculous pleurisy and several studies have investigated the diagnostic value of IL-27 for tuberculous pleural effusions (TPEs), but the results varied a lot. We conducted the present study to comprehensively evaluate the diagnostic value of IL-27 for TPE.

Primary clear cell carcinoma of the trachea: A CARE-compliant case report.

Primary clear cell carcinoma of the lung is a rare condition, and presentation as an endotracheal lesion is even more unusual. In this report, we present a patient with clear cell carcinoma occurring in the trachea, which obstructed the tracheal lumen and lead to the respiratory distress.

Diagnostic accuracy of tumor necrosis factor-alpha assay for tuberculous pleurisy: A PRISMA-compliant meta-analysis.

The diagnosis of tuberculous pleurisy is difficult and traditional methods are not always helpful. Many studies have focused on the tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) assay in pleural effusion for the diagnosis of tuberculous pleurisy, but the results remain controversial. This meta-analysis was conducted to determine the overall diagnostic accuracy of TNF-α.
