Sometimes the Eyes Say More Than the Mouth.

A 48-year-old man with a history of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and AIDS-associated cryptococcal meningitis was referred to our hospital with blurred vision in his left eye for several months. He was diagnosed with bilateral chronic posterior uveitis (Figure 1). After ruling out secondary uveitis, such as sarcoidosis, Beh çet disease, Vogt–Koyanagi–Harada disease, herpesvirus infection, and tuberculosis, uveitis was highly suspected to be attributable to syphilis, namely ocular syphilis, considering AIDS as his underlying disease and previous unprotected sexual contact with males and females.

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]

The objective of this study was to validate the therapeutic potential of magnetic nanoparticle/alternating magnetic field (MNP/AMF) hyperthermia in combination with conventional antibiotics against biofilm infection.Materials and methods: The impact of MNP/AMF hyperthermia on the viability of S. aureus biofilm in the absence and presence of antibiotics as well as on the bactericidal activity of macrophages were evaluated at varying conditions of MNPs concentration and AMF intensity using in vitro cell culture models.Results: The application of MNP/AMF alone at a CEM43 thermal dose below the threshold for skin tissue exhibi...

Balancing risks of immune suppressive medications against risk of chronic disease is challenging for clinicians and families. Available aids commonly lack comparative information needed to inform treatment decisions. We developed a simple video aid to illustrate competing risks associated with medications and underlying disease in context of pediatric inflammatory bowel disease. Those who viewed the video aid had more realistic risk perceptions than those who did not view it. The video aid is adaptable for other conditions. It required only commonly accessible software and little cost, thereby making an aid of this style a...

A mouse model of KSHV-dependent tumorigenicity, allowed us to induce KSHV viral-episome loss following tumor development to test the plausibility of “hit and run” mechanism by KSHV. RNA-seq-transcriptome analysis and CpG-methylation were performed on KSHV positive cells, KSHV positive tumors and tumors that developed following viral-episome loss. During KSHV tumorigenesis, hypo-methylation...

LITFL • Life in the Fast Lane Medical Blog LITFL • Life in the Fast Lane Medical Blog - Emergency medicine and critical care medical education blog aka Tropical Travel Trouble 009 The diagnosis of HIV is no longer fatal and the term AIDS is becoming less frequent. In many countries, people with HIV are living longer than those with diabetes. This post will hopefully teach the basics of a complex disease and demystify some of the potential diseases you need to consider in those who are severely immunosuppressed. While trying to be comprehensive this post can not be exhaustive (as you can imagine any patient with ...
