CONCLUSION: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of a tubo-ovarian abscess caused by C. kefyr. Rare pathogens can be found in patients with a tubo-ovarian abscess, so culture of the abscess material is important for determining subsequent treatment, particularly in women who require an operation for tubo-ovarian abscess.

Multiple myeloma (MM), a plasma cell neoplasm, has a typical presenting pattern consisting of bone pain, renal failure, anemia, and/or hypercalcemia. Even though MM is a cancer that impairs the immune system, rarely is a systemic infection the first sign of disease. In this case report, our patient presented with altered mental status due to meningitis and was later diagnosed with MM. Furthermore, we display a case of a rare but emerging and serious fungus,Candida auris, that the patient developed during his inpatient stay. This is the first such record ofC. auris in an MM patient.Case Rep Oncol 2018;11:705 –710

The patient is a 57-year-old man with liver cirrhosis, Bricker anastomosis after a radical cystoprostatectomy and, a history of bacteremias caused by extended-spectrum β-lactamase–positive Escherichia coli, Enterococcus faecium, and Candida albicans. He presented with persistent low back pain and was diagnosed with vertebral osteomyelitis, for which he received ertapenem-linezolid treatment. However, after 20 days, linezolid had to be discontinued because of myelotoxicity and metabolic acidosis. The patient was switched to tedizolid, which, in combination with ertapenem, was successfully given for 114 days until...

AbstractLocalized provoked vulvodynia (LPV) causes introital dyspareunia in up to 14% of premenopausal women. Vaginal infections like candidosis may play a initiating role. The aim of this study was to test a possible association of vaginal microbiota alternations such asCandida vaginitis (CV), aerobic vaginitis (AV) and bacterial vaginosis (BV) with severity of vulvodynia and painful intercourse. In an observational study, Q-tip touch test (score 1 (no pain) to 10 (worst possible pain)) was performed on seven vestibular locations in 231 LPV patients presenting in the Vulvovaginal Disease Clinics in Tienen, Leuven and Antw...
