Erratum: Hepatitis Delta Prevalence in South America: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
We present the case of a woman with 24 gestational weeks presenting fever, hepatosplenomegaly, pancytopenia, and inversion of albumin/globulin ratio. Anti-rK39 was positive and amastigotes were visualized on myelogram. Treatment with LAmB showed disease improvement. The newborn was born healthy at term, with delivery performed without complications. As VL in pregnancy can progress to death and complications for the mother-fetus binomial, inclusion of VL in the differential diagnosis of patients from endemic areas with compatible clinical picture is mandatory. Treatment with LAmB demonstrates safety and high cure rates in pregnancy.
NPs should be given a more significant role in this effort.
Infants born at 23 to 27 weeks of pregnancy are most vulnerable.

In this long ‐term follow‐up of women with GDM, we found that 2‐hour glucose during OGTT at pregnancy predicted β‐cell function (as measured by ODI) 22 years post‐partum. Results of 2‐hour glucose during OGTT at pregnancy is a more useful indicator of long‐term metabolic risk. Most of the cases wh ich later converted to type 2 diabetes occurred within the first 15 years postpartum. AbstractAims/IntroductionWomen with gestational diabetes mellitus are at increased risk for type 2 diabetes. We characterized the association between maternal glycemia during pregnancy with long‐term outcomes.Methods a...
Conclusions: Orbital sarcoidosis is seen in a high TB endemic country like India and is definitely underreported. PMID: 32073939 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsThere is no clear evidence that the use of drugs during pregnancy and during the first year of life is associated with HSPM. Further well-designed prospective studies are needed.Clinical relevanceDetermining the etiological factors related to the development of HSPM would help to establish preventive protocols in patients at potential risk. As HSPM is predictive of molar incisor hypomineralisation (MIH), the application of preventive protocols would avoid complications in both the primary and permanent dentition.
Severe infection is linked to an increased risk of substance-induced psychosis. However, hepatitis is the most strongly linked and the only infection tied to schizophrenia conversion.Medscape Medical News
