In conclusion, our findings demonstrate that in the presence of an HIV-1 infection, the cellular distribution of FcγRIIIa is altered and that the functional consequence of FcγRIIIa variant is affected. Importantly, it underscores the need to characterize FcγR expression, cellular distribution and functional consequences of FcγR genetic variants within a specific environment or disease state. Introduction Receptors for the Fc domain of immunoglobulin G (IgG), so called Fc gamma receptors (FcγRs), link the specificity of IgG with potent effector functions of the innate immune system. Fc&ga...

ConclusionThe introduction of Highly Active Anti Retroviral Therapy (HAART) has lead to a decline in the incidence of HIV related infections and neoplasms. Nevertheless, these are conditions are still seen. Imaging diagnosis relies to the radiological findings coupled with serological and CSF analysis. The radiologist should be aware of the changing epidemiology of HIV complications in correlation with immune status of the patient which helps establish the correct diagnosis and improve management and prognosis.

LITFL • Life in the Fast Lane Medical Blog LITFL • Life in the Fast Lane Medical Blog - Emergency medicine and critical care medical education blog aka Tropical Travel Trouble 009 The diagnosis of HIV is no longer fatal and the term AIDS is becoming less frequent. In many countries, people with HIV are living longer than those with diabetes. This post will hopefully teach the basics of a complex disease and demystify some of the potential diseases you need to consider in those who are severely immunosuppressed. While trying to be comprehensive this post can not be exhaustive (as you can imagine any patient with ...

ller T, Gómez BL Abstract A total of 23/45 (51%) patients with AIDS and histoplasmosis from Medellín, Colombia had other infections. Tuberculosis was the most common (n = 16/23, 70%). Pneumocystosis and cryptococcosis were found in three patients each (13%), bacterial infection and cytomegalovirus occurred each in two patients (9%) while toxoplasmosis, herpes virus and esophageal candidiasis were recorded in one patient each (4%). Of all co-infected patients, 18/23 (78%) had one, four (17%) had two and one (4%) had three additional opportunistic infections. PMID: 29379705 [PubMed]

AbstractThere is a lack of knowledge on the epidemiology of fungal infections worldwide because there are no reporting obligations. The aim of this study was to estimate the burden of fungal disease in Portugal as part of a global fungal burden project. Most published epidemiology papers reporting fungal infection rates from Portugal were identified. Where no data existed, specific populations at risk and fungal infection frequencies in those populations were used in order to estimate national incidence or prevalence, depending on the condition. An estimated 1,510,391 persons develop a skin or nail fungal infection each ye...
