Red, itchy and inflamed skin is a well-known symptom of what's generally called eczema. While there are a variety of conditions described in this way, the most common type of eczema is atopic dermatitis. Occasionally, complications develop and the skin becomes infected. When this happens, there are a number of treatment options available. Consult your doctor or medical practitioner if you have any questions regarding your eczema treatment plan, but in the meantime, here are some things you'll want to know about the condition. When eczema becomes infected, there are a variety of treatments.  What causes an ec...

We report the case of a 5-year-old male patient, with a history of allergic rhinitis admitted in our clinic for acute onset fever refractory to antipyretics, chest pain, anorexia, refusal of solid food, accepting only small amounts of fluids, odynophagia, and epigastric pain. The clinical exam revealed severe malaise, pallor, decreased skin turgor, abdominal epigastric tenderness, heartburn at palpation within the epigastric area. The laboratory tests showed leukocytosis, monocytosis, hypoglycaemia, and elevated inflammatory biomarkers. Diagnoses: The serology tests for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), cytomegaloviru...

Conclusions: Early diagnosis of HSFI is challenging because signs and symptoms are usually nonspecific. In neutropenic children, persistent fever, back pain extending to the shoulder, widespread muscle pain, and increased serum galactomannan levels should alert clinicians. Abdominal imaging, particularly an abdominal ultrasound, which is easy to perform and available even in most resource-limited countries, should be recommended in children with prolonged neutropenic fever, even in the absence of localizing signs and symptoms.

In this study we used HPLC and LC/MS analysis, combined with a BATMAN-TCM platform, for detailed HPLC fingerprint analysis and network pharmacology of QP, and investigated the anti-inflammatory and antipruritic activities of QP on ACD induced by squaric acid dibutylester (SADBE) in mice. The BATMAN-TCM analysis provided information of effector molecules of the main ingredients of QP, and possible chronic dermatitis-associated molecules and cell signaling pathways by QP. In ACD mice, QP treatment suppressed the scratching behavior induced by SADBE in a dose-dependent manner and inhibited the production of Th1/2 cytokines in...

Discussion Onycomycosis is a fungal infection of the nails. It has a world-wide prevalence of 0.3% with some geographical variations such as in the U.S. it is 0.44%. It is an uncommon problem especially in children. It is very uncommon in those under 6 years and only very sporadic case reports in those under 2 years. The lower incidence is felt to be due to children’s faster nail growth, smaller surface to infect, reduced exposure to fungi, lower prevalence of tinea pedis and especially less cumulative trauma. Onycomycosis is more common in families (unsure if this is due to genetic factors or family members having m...

CONCLUSIONS: PDL and C. albicans antigen injection are safe and effective treatment alternatives for genital warts. PDL yielded better frequencies of clearance, but C. albicans antigen has additional advantages, including a single injection site and treating distant and internal mucosal uninjected warts, which are usually difficult to treat.

We report an unusual case of Candida parapsilosis infection in the knee joint with no predisposing factors. Patient concerns: A 65-year-old man entered our hospital complaining of persistent pain and mild swelling of the right knee that seriously affected normal walking. There was no obvious cause for his distress. Diagnosis: The case was eventually diagnosed as a primary Candida parapsilosis infection which had many diagnostic particularities and difficulties. Interventions: Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) was ultimately performed followed by fluconazole coverage. Outcomes: The patient showed good clinical perfo...

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

We report the case of a Caucasian man who presented with C. parapsilosis spondylodiscitis, who was having a persistent low back pain for 3 months before diagnosis. He had no history of immunosuppression, fever, or elevation of inflammatory markers. The diagnosis was made by fine needle aspiration and culture. A combined medical and surgical intervention was necessary to achieve the best outcome in our case.
