Frequency of histopathological changes in Howler monkeys ( Alouatta sp.) naturally infected with yellow fever virus in Brazil

CONCLUSIONS: The results warn that NHPs may exhibit different response patterns following YFV infection and require a more careful diagnosis. Presumptive diagnosis based on primate histopathological lesions may contribute to public health service control.

This study aimed to elaborate a standardized dataset on FE and FOLAC content for fortified foods, according to fortification practices in Brazil. The content of added nutrients was estimated for all foods listed in the National Dietary Survey (NDS) using the recipe or ingredient list methods, borrowing from labels or imputing values from similar foods. Average consumption of FE and dietary folate equivalent (FOLDFE) was estimated by applying the developed dataset and a nFCT to consumption data from the NDS. The elaborated dataset comprises 140 food products and composite dishes including data for those most consumed in Bra...

Schistosoma mansoni infection has been associated with glomerulonephritis for decades.1 Among the patients who present with hepatic fibrosis, 10% –15% develop glomerular disorders.2 Several types of glomerulopathy, including membranous nephropathy (MN),3 have been observed. Immunopathologic data were gathered from 12 patients with MN from Brazilian academic institutions (Figure 1). The patients had a mean age of 47.8 ± 13.7 years, and 7 5% were male. Median proteinuria was 5.2 g/24 h (varying between 2.0 and 6.9 g/24 h) with a mean serum creatinine of 1.06 ± 0.39 mg/dl.

We report a review of interprofessional education (IPE) for health in Brazil with the objective of identifying experiences and good practices related to the different contexts of changing education and health systems. Our approach is an integrative bibliographic review using surveys and analysis of documents related to IPE in the Virtual Health Library scientific data base. The Brazilian scenario on IPE is still rudimentary, lacking clarity in its definition and scientific progress. Records of successful experiences of IPE and collaborative practices show some growth, with a tendency toward great adherence of professionals...

Henoch-Sch önlein purpura (HSP) is an autoimmune complex, small vessel vasculitis characterized by nonthrombocytopenic palpable purpura, arthralgias, abdominal pain and nephritis. The etiology of HSP remains unclear. Incidence is highest in children, particularly 4 those 4 to 6 years in age. While adult onset HSP has been reported previously, it is diagnosed infrequently. Our case brings attention to the development of HSP while utilizing TNF-alpha inhibitors and the benefit of using colchicine as a treatment during an acute presentation of HSP.

Genital lesions associated with lupus erythematosus (LE) are rarely reported in the literature despite an estimated prevalence of 5% in females with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Investigation of the manifestations of lupus in the genitals can improve the care of lupus patients and further our understanding of this heterogeneous disease. A 38-year-old female with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) presented with three weeks of painful oral and vaginal erosions. Her SLE had been well controlled on hydroxychloroquine for five years, until four months prior, when she had worsening joint pain and nephritis.

The many causes of hepatitis (infective jaundice) were unknown in the 19th century, including the viruses of hepatitis A, B, C, E, Epstein-Barr, and yellow fever. In 1886, Adolf Weil (1948 –1916) in Heidelberg, Germany, published 4 cases with acute fever, icterus, enlarged liver and spleen, and nephritis, a syndrome that soon became known as Weil's disease. However, it took about 30 years to discover the causative agent.
