Meningo-Encephalitis Associated to Secondary Cerebral Vasculitis in a Patient with Disseminated Mycobacterium Avium Complex Infection and AIDS (P1.303)

CONCLUSIONS To our knowledge, this is the first case report of CNS vasculitis as a complication of disseminated MAC infection. An aggressive and refractory to treatment evolution were hallmarks features of this case. The underlying pathophysiology of the vasculitis is unknown and might be related either to MAC itself, the immune reconstitution due to antiretroviral initiation or most probably to a combination of both themDisclosure: Dr. Ballesteros has nothing to disclose.

CONCLUSIONS.: There is a great variability of mutations associated with resistance to anti-tuberculosis drugs that have been reported in Peru, and they are systematized in this report. These mutations must be taken into account for the development of diagnostic devices or selection of diagnostic tests to be applied in our country. PMID: 31967255 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Lai G, Guo N, Jiang Y, Lai J, Li Y, Lai R Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess whether the duration of one-lung ventilation (OLV) affects postoperative pulmonary complications after McKeown esophagectomy for esophageal cancer. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of data stored in a database for esophageal cancer was carried out to identify predictors of postoperative pulmonary complications in patients undergoing McKeown esophagectomy at Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center between 2010 and 2012. RESULTS: Patients in the OLV ⩾150 minutes group had a higher incidence of postoperative pulmonary complication...

Have any of y'all thought about this? For example, if someone comes into the ED with flu like symptoms, in the middle of flu season, and is an otherwise young and healthy individuals, I see no utility in testing for the flu (I'm also not a fan of Tamiflu for non-high risk populations), so it's usually just r/o something like a pneumonia, reassurance, doctor's note, and OTC symptom control. But with these periodic outbreaks of things like SARS, MERS, this novel corona virus, or even failed... What's the ER doc's role in epidemiology?

However, the corresponding standard clinical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) presents normal or atypical in the majority of patients with anti-NMDAR encephalitis. Here, this study aimed to investigate the alterations in brain functional activity in patients with anti-NMDAR encephalitis and whether these a...
