Sometimes the Eyes Say More Than the Mouth

A 48-year-old man with a history of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (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). 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.

On this episode of ASHA Voices, we dive into the research behind hearing loss reversal. While investigating a genetic form of hearing loss affecting transduction, researcher Jeff Holt  found he could successfully reverse hearing loss in mice. How did the researcher test the rodents’ hearing? By unexpectedly playing loud music and looking for a response in the subjects, nicknamed Beethoven mice. “A deaf mouse doesn’t jump at all, no matter how loud a sound you play. But after introducing our gene therapy into the ears of Beethoven mice, we find they jump again,” says Holt. Also on the show, sens...

Conclusion: The combined picture of 'low IPT initiation and high completion' seen in our study mirrors findings from other countries. Drug stock-out was the key challenge, which obliged health-care providers to prioritize 'IPT completion' over 'IPT initiation'. There is an urgent need to improve the procurement and supply chain management of isoniazid. PMID: 31937200 [PubMed - in process]

ChIP-seq experiments were performed by using M. smegmatis strains producing GreA prote...

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 ...
