In this study, cases submitted with a serologically confirmed, clinically unequivocal, or highly suspicious diagnosis of ECM/Lyme disease between January 01, 2016, and September 01, 2018, were retrieved from the electronic database system and reviewed to delineate the histopathologic features of ECM. The series consisted of 14 cases. A superficial perivascular lymphocytic infiltrate was noted in all biopsies, accompanied by a deep and/or interstitial inflammatory infiltrate in 9 cases (64%). The inflammation ranged from relatively sparse to dense and prominent. At least focal interface changes were noted in 12 biopsies (86...

AbstractUp till now, screening for human parvovirus B19 is not routine in national Egyptian blood bank strategy. Blood samples were collected from 500 healthy blood donors within the age range from 18 to 45  years old attending the blood bank of Suez Canal University Hospital, Ismailia, Egypt. Sera were separated and stored at − 20 °C. Serum samples were screened for anti-human parvovirus B19 IgM and IgG antibodies and B19 genome using ELISA and real-time PCR respectively. Frequency of B19 IgM a nd B19 IgG antibodies was 6.20%, and 80.20% respectively, and the prevalence of B19 genome was 3.00%. ...

In this study, we report the case of a previously healthy 5-year-old boy with infection-related glomerulonephritis (IRGN) associated with PVB19 that progressed to end-stage renal disease (ESRD). He presented with macrohematuria, nephrotic-range proteinuria, and progressive renal dysfunction despite treatment with methylprednisolone pulse therapy, plasmapheresis, and intravenous immunoglobulin. The kidney biopsy specimens exhibited endocapillary infiltration and mesangiolysis with cellular crescent formation. Immunofluorescence analysis revealed that IgA was dominantly positive in the glomeruli, with some co-localized with ...

We report a case of acute neuroborreliosis that manifested as extended isolated cervical myelitis. Not only the manifestation as isolated myelitis in the early stages of borreliosis represents a rarity, but also the strong contrast between mild clinical symptoms and pronounced imaging findings in this case is remarkable.Case Rep Neurol 2020;12:276 –281

Serologic testing may be negative in immunocompromised hosts due to inadequate IgG and IgM response. The classic bone marrow findings of viral inclusions and giant proerythroblasts are pathognomonic for active infection and should prompt initiation of therapy regardless of serologic results.
