ConclusionsWe emphasize the rarity of this antibody combination in children and suggest these patients, although clinically improved, may require longer follow-up due to the risk of recurrence of two autoimmune disorders.

Long Island, New York, is highly endemic for the disease. The C6 peptide (C6P) is currently used as a screening test for LD in our institution. Our objective was to examine how screening with C6P concorded with diagnosis of LD at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Northport, Long Island. ...

Oosthuizen, Melvyn QuanAbstractCanine babesiosis is caused by tick-transmitted intraerythrocytic protozoan parasites occurring worldwide. In southern Africa, babesiosis is caused by Babesia rossi and B. vogeli and is one of the most common and important infectious diseases affecting dogs. There is no reliable, rapid and sensitive method for the detection of these parasites, especially when parasitaemia is low. The aim of this study was to develop a sensitive an...

Varicella zoster virus (VZV) encephalitis is suspected when encephalitis patients simultaneously present with the characteristic disseminated rash of varicella [1,2]. In contrast, a diagnosis of VZV encephalitis may be delayed in patients without skin rash. Here, we report a patient with VZV encephalitis in whom unilateral oropharyngeal mucosal lesions suggested VZV infection at the initial visit.

yai K Abstract SUMMARYThe tick-borne pathogen Powassan virus is a rare cause of encephalitis in North America and the Russian Far East. The number of documented cases described since the discovery of Powassan virus in 1958 may be 50% of survivors make Powassan virus a medical concern requiring the attention of public health authorities and clinicians. The medical importance of Powassan virus justifies more research on developing specific and effective treatments and prevention and control measures. PMID: 30541872 [PubMed - in process]

Rigid retainer systems such as telescopic crowns reduce these negative effects, but their fabrication demands highly skilled dental technicians and is therefore expensive. Whether a protocol with prefabricated retainers will reduce production time is un...
