Discussion Facial nerve palsy has been known for centuries, but in 1821 unilateral facial nerve paralysis was described by Sir Charles Bell. Bell’s palsy (BP) is a unilateral, acute facial paralysis that is clinically diagnosed after other etiologies have been excluded by appropriate history, physical examination and/or laboratory testing or imaging. Symptoms include abnormal movement of facial nerve. It can be associated with changes in facial sensation, hearing, taste or excessive tearing. The right and left sides are equally affected but bilateral BP is rare (0.3%). Paralysis can be complete or incomplete at prese...

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...

We report the case of a patient with a lengthy psychiatric history who presented with lower extremity pain and weakness. Cervical, thoracic, and lumbar MRI scans with and without gadolinium contrast revealed no significant stenosis, neural compression, or other abnormal findings, and the brain MRI with and without gadolinium contrast was normal. The initia l diagnosis was conversion disorder due to myriad psychological stressors. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) of CSF detected HSV-2 and a lymphocytic pleocytosis, and the diagnosis of radiculomyelitis was confirmed. She was treated with i.v. acyclovir for 3 weeks followed b...

A 63-year-old man presented with odynophagia and retrosternal pain. Previously, prednisolone and cyclophosphamide were administered for severe interstitial pneumonia. The first EGD showed diffuse maplike erosions with exfoliation of the epithelium in the distal esophagus (A). Histologic analysis revealed multinucleated cells with ground-glass nuclei (B, arrowheads). His serum herpes simplex virus –immunoglobulin-M level was elevated to 4.49 (antibody index). Acyclovir was administered for herpes simplex virus–induced esophagitis, and the symptoms improved.

Conclusions: These finding suggest that Poly-ICLC could be safely used for inducing transient innate immune responses in treated HIV+ subjects indicating promise as an adjuvant for HIV therapeutic vaccines. Trial Registration: www.ClinicalTrials.gov, identifier: NCT02071095. Introduction Innate immune dysregulation during HIV infection hinders the formation of anti-HIV adaptive immunity (1–6) resulting in rampant viral dissemination and progression to AIDS. Adherence to combination anti-retroviral therapy (cART) regimens controls viremia, restores CD4+T cell counts and reverses immune dysfunction to a larg ext...

This article gives an overview of the most important bene fits. The absorption of the laser light produces photothermal effects such as coagulation, vaporization and photoablation. The main indications in stomatology are pain alleviation and prevention of recurences in aphthae and cold sores (minor aphthae, herpes simplex), ablation of benign and irritant tissue excess (stimulus fibroma), lip and tongue band correction and soft tissue hemostasis. One great advantage is the minimal bleeding in the surgical field, which allows for optimal visibility. In addition, the CO2 laser offers high patient comfort since no primary wou...
