We hereby report the case of a 66-year-old obese patient (BMI 30) with type 2 diabetes, who presented a chronic vulvar lesion on the left labia majora following surgical drainage of an abscess. After multiple unsuccessful treatments by antibiotics and local wound care, we proposed a trial of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). The patient fully recovered after 54 sessions at 2.5 ATA, 95 minutes each. HBOT has been studied for perineal lesion such as skin atrophy or necrosis caused by irradiation but not for vulvar nonhealing chronic lesions in the case of impaired vascularization caused by diabetes. This case is, to our knowledge, one of the first publications about the healing boost of HBOT in chronic vulvar wounds due to vascular impairment.

Rationale: A novel COVID-19 with the severe acute respiratory syndrome had arisen in Wuhan, China in December 2019 Thromboembolism is a critical clinical entity commonly recognized sequel in COVID-19 patients. Interestingly, the presentation of COVID-19 infection with thromboembolism has a risk impact on both morbidity and mortality in COVID-19 patients. Morbid obesity may add over significant risk value in the presence of COVID-19 pneumonia with thromboembolism. Patient concerns: Middle-aged housewife female COVID-19 morbid obese patient presented to physician outpatient clinic with unilateral pneumonia suspected acute pulmonary embolism. Diagnosis: COVID-19 pneumonia with acute pulmonary embolism in morbid obesity. Interventions: CT pulmonary angiography, non- contrasted chest CT scan, electrocardiography, and oxygenation. Outcomes: Dramatic of both clinical and radiological improvement had happened. Lessons: The combination of morbid obesity, QTc prolongation with COVID-19 infection is an indicator of the over-risk of thromboembolism. It signifies the role of anticoagulants, antiplatelet, anti-infective drugs, and steroids in COVID-19 patients with unilateral pneumonia and acute pulmonary embolism in morbid obesity are effective therapies. An increasing the dose of both low-molecular heparin and oral anticoagulant with a morbidly obese patient was reasonable.

Background: Uncontrolled cardiovascular (CV) risk factors is been related to a higher incidence of atherosclerosis. Obesity itself could predispose to significant cardiac disease including arterial atheromatous leading to acute events. Case: A 46 years old obese patient who presented with left abdominal pain radiating to the left quadrant and left testicle. No significant abnormality was observed in the laboratories, but imaging showed left renal lower pole may be due to renal infarct (Figure 1), and CT-Angiography (CTA) of the abdomen showed infarction of the anterior two-thirds of the lower pole of the left kidney (Figure 2) secondary to occlusion of the supplying small inferior segmental artery and minimal atherosclerosis. Transthoracic Echocardiogram (TTE) showed a density in the LVOT may be artifact vs. calcification (Figure 3). A transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) showed Grade III atherosclerotic changes of descending aorta (Figure 4), aortic arch, and a mobile plaque seen in the thoracic aorta. Conclusion: Cardiovascular risk factors have been associated with multiple vascular complications. Obesity as a single cardiovascular risk factor is associated with advanced arterial disease; our case is an example of an unstable atheromatous lesion causing thrombosis and ischemia in the kidney in a patient without another risk factor for thrombosis.
