Conclusion. The Xpert MTB/RIF assay is an efficient technique for the rapid diagnosis of spinal TB; however, a clinician should not solely rely on it for starting ATT. As there are false results also with this test which should be read cautiously and be well correlated with culture and DST pattern to guide the start of sensitive drug regimen only. The purpose is to prevent exposure of the second line drugs to false cases found on the Xpert MTB/RIF assay and avoid emergence of new acquired drug resistance. Level of Evidence: 4

Although evidence suggests that passive activating endodontic devices increase the effectiveness of irrigation, no study exists to quantitatively compare and validate vibrational characteristics and cavitation produced by different ult...

In 2018, there were about 10 million new tuberculosis (TB) cases and 1.24 million TB deaths worldwide. China is ranked second for TB disease burden in the world with estimated 866,000 new TB patients and 37,000 TB related deaths annually (World Health Organization, 2019). One of the reasons for the high incidence of TB is the early discharge of uncured patients who can cause disease transmission. At present, cured TB is mainly evaluated by the following standards: ① Whether the patient has received standardized anti-TB treatment; ② Chest X-ray and/or CT scan results; ③ Sputum smear and sputum culture results.

This study aimed to evaluate the value of nNO in diagnosing AR and NAR and the impact of absence or presence of sinus inflammation.MethodsA total of 173 consecutive patients scanned with high-resolution CT and 46 normal controls (NCs) were included in our study. Patients were evaluated according to their medical history, nasal symptoms, endoscopic examination and skin prick test. Based on CT scan (Lund-Mackey score>2), all patients were subgrouped as AR with (ARwSI) and without (ARsSI) sinus inflammation, or NAR with (ARwSI) and without (NARsSI) sinus inflammation. nNO levels were measured with NOIX device and eosinophi...

Mithra N Hegde, Manjiri Nagesh Honap, Sreenath NarayananIndian Journal of Dental Research 2019 30(5):772-776 Introduction: An array of factors control the success of endodontic surgery. One of them is the technique used to prepare the root end cavities which is conventionally being done with burs. In past decades, ultrasonic instruments have been introduced for the same. Studies comparing these instruments on root surface integrity are scarce. Thus, an in-vitro Scanning Electron Microscopy study was designed to evaluate the surface integrity of root end cavities prepared using conventional and piezoelectric devices. Metho...

Pubic symphysis septic arthritis is rare. To our knowledge, pubic symphysis septic arthritis caused by Pasteurella multocida has not been previously reported. A 79-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with a 3-day history of progressively severe left groin pain and swelling with unintentional 20-lb weight loss. Physical examination was negative except for the presence of a tender, fluctuant mass approximately 6 × 2-cm dimensions extending from the midpubic symphysis area to the left femoral crease. Computed tomography scan of the abdomen/pelvis confirmed a multiloculated mass in the area of the pubic ...

We, herein report a 15 month otherwise healthy child, who presented with hyphema, vitreous hemorrhage and secondary glaucoma following a vague history of trauma in the left eye 2 months before presentation. He presented a week later with features of panophthalmitis which were confirmed on B-scan and orbital CT scan. CT scan with contrast revealed the presence of ...

CONCLUSIONS: BCS should be differentiated from other round cell tumors. Some cytologic features, especially rhabdoid-like cells, connective tissue fragments, and pseudopapillary formations, combined with immunohistochemical and molecular studies, may be helpful in making the appropriate diagnosis.

This study aimed to investigate the circulation of L. infantum among sylvatic hosts in Sicily (southern Italy), a highly endemic area for canine leishmaniosis, through serological and molecular tools. Target tissues (skin, spleen, lymph nodes) collected from 71 European rabbits, 2 European hares, 7 red foxes, 11 European wildcats and 1 pin. marten, were qPCR analysed for the detection of L. infantum DNA. Additionally, 40 rabbits, older than one year, were serologically screened for specific anti-Leishmania antibodies. Leishmania infantum was molecularly diagnosed in 5.4% (n = 5) of the examined animals...
