Detection of Crimean-Congo Haemorrhagic Fever cases in a severe undifferentiated febrile illness outbreak in the Federal Republic of Sudan: a retrospective epidemiological and diagnostic cohort study

Conclusions/SignificanceCCHFV is an important cause of fever and haemorrhage in Darfur, but not the sole major source of UFI outbreaks in Sudan. Prospective studies are needed to explore other aetiologies, including novel pathogens. The presence of CCHFV has critical infection, prevention and control as well as clinical implications for future response. Our study reinforces the need to boost surveillance, lab and investigative capacity to underpin effective response, and for local and international health security.

Synthetic marijuana use has been reported in the last years as a possible causative factor of different cardiovascular events, including myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, intracranial bleeding, and cerebral vasospasm. One case of aortic thrombosis was also reported, but that was in a patient using cocaine and synthetic marijuana together. A case of lower limb thromboembolism and synthetic marijuana use has not been reported to date. Intoxication, material impurity, blood vessel reactivity, and chemical interaction with other drugs have been proposed as possible mechanisms of these events.

Catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) is a recommended method for acute deep venous thrombosis with the advantage on enhancing thrombus removal of lower extremities, reducing the post-thrombotic syndrome and the risk of threatened limb loss. Recently, the mechanical devices combined with CDT treatment have shown its advantage over CDT alone in some reports. Fibrinogen levels are typically serially monitored during the infusion period and used as a surrogate marker for impending bleeding. We aimed to demonstrate the advantage of catheter and aspiration thrombectomy (CAT) over CDT on the changes of fibrinogen level.

Intrapericardial tumor had not been resected because of massive bleeding from the hypervascular tumor and its invasion into the pericardium, ascending aorta, and pulmonary artery. The neck tumor had been successfully resected, and paraganglioma was pathologically diagnosed. Abnormal accumulation in t...

Discussion Athletes, whether recreational or competitive, who participate in weight sensitive sports commonly gain or lose weight to achieve a particular body type or to improve performance. Athletes in duration or aesthetic sports (such as distance running, diving, dance, etc.) attempting to lose weight to be able to move the body against gravity better. Sports that emphasize strength and power including combat sports (such as football, wrestling, mixed martial arts, body building, etc.) often have athletes attempting to gain weight and lean muscle mass to improve performance. This is felt to increase the strength-to-weig...
