Abstract In developed countries, it is said that "threats of infectious diseases are already thought as things of the past". However, as you can see in the case of Ebola hemorrhagic fever that occurred in West Africa, this is a big mistake. Among infectious diseases, only smallpox has been successfully eradicated worldwide. In addition to the three major infectious diseases of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria, there is another group called emerging and reemerging infectious diseases. Recently, neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) have been listed as threats by the WHO, as have drug-resistant bacteria. T...

Authors: Thakur CP, Sinha K Abstract 54 cases of drug resistant kala-azar patients, some cases were resistant to sodium stibogluconate, some to even single dose of ambisome and some to miltefosine came to us for treatment. All necessary investigations were done and splenic aspirations were positive for LD bodies. All these patients were treated with Fungizone at a dose of 1mg/kg body wt diluted with 5% glucose and given slowly in 4 hours. On the day 21st splenic aspiration was done and other necessary investigations were repeated. LD body was not found in any splenic aspirate except one case with HIV. Initially all...

Conclusion: SLE patients are predisposed to various minor as well as lifethreatening infections. It is essential to prevent infections by screening, reducing exposure to sources or contacts of infection and minimizing the exposure to immunosuppressive agents while controlling disease activity.

Authors: Zhou J, Li J, Ma L, Cao S Abstract Zoster sine herpete (ZSH) is one of the atypical clinical manifestations of herpes zoster (HZ), which stems from infection and reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus (VZV) in the cranial nerve, spinal nerve, viscera, or autonomic nerve. Patients with ZSH display variable symptoms, such as neuralgia, however, different from HZ, ZSH show no zoster, which makes clinical diagnosis difficult. ZSH not only causes initial symptoms, such as neuropathic pain in the affected nerve, Bell palsy, and Ramsay Hunt syndrome, but also postherpetic neuralgia and fatal complications suc...

Authors: Nelson EO, Ruiz GG, Kozin AF, Turner TC, Langland EV, Langland JO Abstract Oral herpes labialis, more commonly known as cold sores, are a common encountered viral infection involving herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1). Although relatively benign, these lesions can be both unsightly and clinically difficult to manage. Prescription standards of care and over-the-counter agents, such as docosonal, have often shown only limited efficacy in both decreasing lesional pain and reducing duration of lesional symptomology and are not without potential side effects. Despite some success with acute remediation, recurrent e...
