The World Health Organization earlier this year called antimicrobial resistance—pathogens’ ability to evade medical interventions—one of the 10 largest threats to global health. In the U.S. alone, according to a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report, 35,000 people die each year due to antibiotic-resistant infections. A new study published in the BMJ points to one major propagator of the problem: doctors are prescribing antibiotics when they shouldn’t. In fact, up to 43% of U.S. antibiotic prescriptions may be “inappropriate,” according to the research. Antibioti...

Bilateral lung parenchymal involvement is seen in infective as well as noninfective conditions, appearing as focal or diffuse lung disease. PET/CT with FDG helps in characterization (increased glucose utilization is seen by both inflammatory and neoplastic cells). In this article, we describe the spectrum of patterns of FDG uptake and associated CT changes involving bilateral lung parenchyma. Benign conditions described are aspiration pneumonia; pulmonary toxicity by bleomycin; infections, namely, sarcoidosis, miliary pulmonary tuberculosis, and pulmonary nocardiosis; and inflammatory conditions such as pulmonary Langerhan...

Although the gap diminished in recent decades, exploration of social and behavioral factors may inform interventions that could further reduce death rates among males.

By SAURABH JHA, MD Slumdog TB No one knows who gave Rahul Roy tuberculosis. Roy’s charmed life as a successful trader involved traveling in his Mercedes C class between his apartment on the plush Nepean Sea Road in South Mumbai and offices in Bombay Stock Exchange. He cared little for Mumbai’s weather. He seldom rolled down his car windows – his ambient atmosphere, optimized for his comfort, rarely changed. Historically TB, or “consumption” as it was known, was a Bohemian malady; the chronic suffering produced a rhapsody which produced fine art. TB was fashionable in Victorian Britain...

CONCLUSIONS: Most studies agree in that decreased vitamin D concentrations are prevalent among most infants and children with RTIs. Also, normal to high-serum 25(OH)D appears to have some beneficial influence on the incidence and severity of some, but not all, types of these infections. However, studies with vitamin D supplementation revealed conflicting results as to whether supplementation may be of benefit, and at what doses. PMID: 31768940 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Introduction: Pulmonary tuberculoma is a clinical form of tuberculosis (TB) combining various encapsulated caseous foci of more than 1 cm in diameter with a long and often low-symptom course. A characteristic feature of this form is the prolonged torpid course and the presence of a pronounced connective tissue capsule surrounding large or a group of small foci of caseous and infiltrates. Tuberculoma may stay silent for years, but if progressing can develop severe forms such as caseous pneumonia, disseminated and fibrous-cavernous TB.The aim of our study was to identify serum microRNA markers of tuberculoma decoy.Methods: T...

Bronchiectasis can have different causes. Etiology impact on clinical and functional aspects is little known.Objectives: Identify causes of bronchiectasis non cystic fibrosis(BNFC) and investigate if there are differences concerning clinical, functional and of quality of life(QoL) among groups.Methods: Descriptive and cross-sectional study conducted in a Brazilian University hospital. Patients (N=109, mean age 53 yrs, 60% women) with tomographic diagnosis of bronchiectasis had medical files reviewed and were interviewed to identify personal and familial antecedents; they also performed spirometry and answered the Saint Geo...
