Authors: Vučićević Boras V, Vidović Juras D, Aurer I, Bašić-Kinda S, Mikulić M Abstract A 40-year-old female patient was admitted to the Department of Oral Medicine due to oral ulcerations. Oral ulcerations were present on vestibular mucosa above teeth 21, 22, 25 and 26 and were 1 cm in diameter, and also around teeth 45 and 46. The patient had prolonged neutropenia due to therapy-related myelodysplastic syndrome that progressed to therapy-related acute myeloid leukemia. Initially, the patient was successfully treated with polychemotherapy for non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Unfortunately, many toxic complicatio...

In this study, we detected in Northern Africa two putatively novel Rickettsia species in soft tick species of the Ornithodoros erraticus complex: Ornithodoros occidentalis from Morocco, Ornithodoros erraticus from Algeria and Ornithodoros normandi from Tunisia. We characterized these two novel Rickettsia species on the basis of comparative DNA sequence analyses and phylogenetics of four genes (gltA, 16S rRNA, coxA and ompB). These Rickettsia, provisionally named ‘Candidatus Rickettsia africaseptentrionalis’ and ‘Candidatus Rickettsia mauretanica’, differed in nucleotide sequence from those of other ...

CONCLUSION: Even in posterior uveitis, initial AH analysis may be helpful. A careful formulation of possible clinical diagnosis seems to increase the chance of intraocular sample analysis being meaningful.

After allogeneic stem cell transplant (SCT), varicella zoster virus (VZV) necessitates long term chemoprophylaxis due to limitations of the live vaccine. The recombinant subunit vaccine containing VZV glycoprotein E with AS01B adjuvant system (HZ/su, or Shingrix) has safety and efficacy data after autologous transplantation. However, data is absent in the setting of allogeneic SCT. Due to the highly immunogenic AS01b subunit component, concerns regarding stimulation of graft versus host disease (GVHD) reaction have prompted some institutions to avoid routine HZ/su vaccination early after SCT.

Single-center studies have reported increased risk of CMV infection in patients undergoing allogeneic transplant using haploidentical graft with post-transplant cyclophosphamide (HaploCy), however limited data exists regarding the impact of this transplant platform on the incidence of non-CMV herpes viruses (NCHV) infection (viremia/disease). Furthermore, it is unclear if the donor type or altered immune reconstitution resulting from the use of PTCy contributes to this infection risk. To study this, patients reported to the CIBMTR with AML/ALL/MDS transplanted between 2012 and 2017 receiving HaploCy (n  = 757), matched...

Major Depression — the clinical type — is not a normal part of aging. Though it can appear at any age, older adults are at an increased risk. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) distinguishes this condition from having “the blues” and likens it to other medical illnesses that are treatable, like diabetes or hypertension. Overwhelming sadness and anxiety can last for weeks at a time or much longer, with a wide range of other discouraging symptoms. Yet, there are things that can help.  Statistics tell us that later in life, at least one chronic disease will affect 80 percent of u...

Study of 9604 adults with both household exposure to varicella and an episode of zoster found that exposure to varicella is linked to reduction in risk of zoster by ~30% over 20 years, though findings cannot be used to justify for or against specific vaccination schedules.

Authors: Acar RD, Acar Ş, Doğan C, Bayram Z, Karaduman A, Uysal S, Akbal ÖY, Hakgör A, Kaymaz C, Özdemir N Abstract INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between the tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion/pulmonary arterial systolic pressure (TAPSE/PASP) ratio and model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) score in patients with advanced heart failure. METHODS: A total of 103 patients with advanced heart failure evaluated for candidacy for heart transplantation were included in this study. TAPSE was measured by M‑mode echocardiography and cardiac catheteri...
