Aspergillus terreus spondylodiscitis following an abdominal stab wound: a case report

ConclusionsTo our knowledge, this is the first report of spondylodiscitis caused byAspergillus terreus after an abdominal penetrating injury. The histological finding of chronic suppurative osteomyelitis and the radiological findings strongly suggested direct inoculation ofAspergillus terreus.

Authors: Feng Z, Feng Z, Han J, Cheng W, Su B, Mo J, Feng X, Feng S, Chen G, Huang P, Huang L, Cui Z Abstract Shenling Baizhu additive powder (SLBZ-AP), a formulation of a variety of natural medicinal plants, has clinical efficacy in treating cancers in previous studies. We explored the effect of SLBZ-AP in bone metastasis of lung cancer (BMLC) mice, and the possible mechanism involved was further investigated in the present study. Mice model of BMLC was made and treated with SLBZ-AP. Pain behavioral tests were performed to explore the effect on BMLC-induced pain in mice. TUNEL staining was used to investigate apop...

Now I’m the kinda woman who enjoys a bevvie or two – and I do love to talk! Combine them both with my favourite topic of pain, and you end up with Le Pub Home brew…and I’m speaking THIS SATURDAY!! My topic? Let’s stop focusing on pain, because we have a few elephants in the room we need to discuss. Come and join me as I poke and prod at assumptions made about why people come asking for help with their pain, why clinicians often focus on the wrong thing, why we need to listen to the messages buried beneath the “take my pain away” call – and why the skills clinicians ha...

Abstract Mild encephalitis/encephalopathy with a reversible splenial lesion (MERS) is a clinicoradiological syndrome characterized by transient mild encephalopathy and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of a reversible lesion in the splenium of the corpus callosum (SCC). Patients with MERS generally present with central nervous system symptoms such as consciousness disturbance, headache, and seizure; adult-onset MERS with cerebellar ataxia is rare. A 53-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with fever of 1 week's duration, headache, neck stiffness, and gait disturbance. Neurological examination revealed...

We present a 33-year-old man who experienced hemiparesis in the upright position after craniectomy. Upright computed tomography (CT) before cranioplasty showed a remarkable shift of the brain compared to supine CT. After cranioplasty, both symptoms and brain shift on CT resolved. Upright CT enables detection and objective evaluation of paradoxical herniation and midline shift that is not obvious on supine imaging modalities. Clinicians need to be aware of positional brain shift in postcraniectomy patients.

CONCLUSIONS: Fibromyalgia prevalence is high among female refugees and is associated with insomnia. The treatment is suboptimal. The early screening and raising awareness of FM diagnosis and treatments are highly recommended. Key Points Fibromyalgia is an overlooked disorder especially among female war refugees The prevalence of severe fibromyalgia was about (30%), with a significant correlation with insomnia Fibromyalgia among the Syrian female refugees is mistreated perhaps due to lack of the proper diagnosis.

Authors: Amzil K, Hamadi F, Latrache H, Mimouni R, Abou Oualid H, Azelmad K, Saidi A, Elboulani A, Mabrouki M Abstract The biofilm formation on the surfaces which are in direct contact with food products might lead to their contamination and, consequently, present serious health problems for the consumers. The goals of the present work were to study P. aeruginosa biofilm formation on two granites and to investigate the efficiency of sodium hypochlorite (NaCLO) against the same biofilm formed on these substrata using the plate count method (PCM) and epifluorescence microscopy (EP). More biofilm cells adhered to Rosa...
