Lyme-associated uveitis: Clinical spectrum and review of literature.

CONCLUSION: Lyme-associated uveitis appears varied. Hyalitis and involvement of the posterior segment and retinal vasculitis seem to be rather frequent. Its prognosis is mainly good, even if inflammation can be resistant or recurring. PMID: 31238716 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Shahrokhi SA, Naeini AA Abstract In this case-control study, 60 patients with Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) referred to the Nursing and Midwifery Center of Khorramabad, were selected as the case group and 90 non-PCOS patients as the control group. Demographic information and anthropometric indices of each person were collected. The Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ) and International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) were completed. After at least 12 h of fasting, 7 mL of blood samples were taken from the patients. There was no statistically significant difference observed in the mean...

Conclusion: We suggest that dapsone can have a positive effect in chronic IgA vasculitis when cutaneous manifestations last more than 6  weeks at the dosage of 1–2 mg/kg once per day during 1 week.What is Known:• IgA vasculitis or Henoch-Schonlein purpura is the most common vasculitis in children and affects mostly small vessels of the skin, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract. It resolves spontaneously in most of the cases. Exceptionally, cutaneous lesions can last several weeks.• Dapsone is a bacteriostatic antibacterial sulfonamide drug found to be effective in the treatment of some inflamm...

Anti-N-Methyl-D-Aspartate-receptor encephalitis is the most common antibody-mediated autoimmune encephalopathy. A HIV-infected African boy presented with subacute psychosis as manifestation of anti-N-Methyl-D-Aspartate-receptor encephalitis. Intravenous immunoglobulin and corticosteroids induced complete remission. Although this is the first pediatric case described, 5 adult cases have been reported. The role of HIV in the etiology of this autoimmune condition requires further exploration.

Conclusion: Surgical treatment could rescue visual function in patients with ocular toxocariasis but their prognosis was unfavorable. Preoperative VA was associated with final VA, whereas macular involvement was associated with poor visual outcomes. PMID: 31305199 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Contributors : Matthew Buechler ; Shannon Turley ; Steve Lianoglou ; Nicolas LounsburySeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mus musculusWe are interested in whether peritoneal LCM are programmed by omental Wt1+ stroma (identified as PDPN+ cells). To this end, we co-cultured omental PDPN+ cells (purified by MACS by depleting CD45+ and CD31+ cells) with peritoneal exudates in a manner that enables cell:cell contact or inhibited this with a transwell insert or enabled cell:cell contact in the presence of the retinoic acid receptor inverse agonist BMS493. Peritoneal exudates were also cultu...

Conclusions OCB are important biomarkers that can support MRI diagnostics and help to avoid false-positive MS diagnoses. Therefore, the revised McDonalds criteria have increased the importance of the OCB. New biomarkers such as AQP4 have now established themselves in clinical practice, and others such as Anti-MOG and NfL are about to enter clinical routine. An important focus in the search for new biomarkers is the monitoring of therapy efficacy and the prediction of severe side effects. Many other CSF molecules such as CHI3L1, IL-6, or CXCL13 show potential as markers for clinical practice, but further research is nee...

Patient Presentation A 9-year-old male came to clinic with a 1 month history of painful joint swelling. One month ago he started having right ankle pain that was intermittent but consistent. One day ago his right wrist, right ankle and bilateral knees had some swelling but no erythema or warmth. He says that he has pain in them when he moves but not when he is resting and he denies any joint stiffness or gelling. He also had 1-2 days of multiple red skin lesions on his extremities and trunk, not overlying the affected joints. The skin lesions do not come and go and do not itch. They are mainly discrete circular lesions wi...

Publication date: 2017 Source:Handbook of Clinical Neurology, Volume 145 Author(s): Istvan Katona, Joachim Weis This chapter reviews the diseases of the peripheral nerves from a neuropathologic point of view, with a special focus on specific morphologic changes, and includes a summary of the histopathologic methods available for their diagnosis. As the rate of obesity and the prevalence of type 2 diabetes increase, diabetic neuropathy is the most common cause of peripheral neuropathy. Many systemic disorders with metabolic origin, like amyloidosis, hepatic failure, vitamin deficiencies, uremia, lipid metabolism disorders,...
