Haemophilus influenzae type f (Hif) was found and isolated from the blood and cerebrospinal fluid by culture, leading to a diagnosis of meningitis. The prevalence of H. influenzae type b (Hib) infections has decreased due to routine immunization. As a result, the prevalence of invasive non-Hib, inc...
In conclusion, while the two assays present equivalent data for assessing the effectiveness of the bivalent and quadrivalent vaccines, PGMY-CHUV is more suitable for evaluating the impact of the current 9-valent vaccine because of its superior detection of HPV52 in co-infection cases.

Conclusions: In accordance with trials with low methodological quality, Xiao'er Xiaoji Zhike oral liquid combined with azithromycin seems to be safe and superior to azithromycin alone for the treatment of MPP in children. However, further trials with rigorous methodology need to be implemented for these potential benefits. PMID: 32765636 [PubMed]
CONCLUSION: Hypersensitivity pneumonia should be considered for the differential diagnosis of patients that present with respiratory distress, cough, fever, and weight loss. Prolonged exposure and close contact may worsen the clinical symptoms. In most cases, only exposure prevention is enough, while steroid therapy, oxygen support, and intensive care monitoring may be required in severe cases. PMID: 32779415 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Rupture of the pulmonary HC is the most common and also the most feared complication. Rupture may be either intrabronchial or intrapleural. Radiologic imaging is diagnostic. Rupture of the pulmonary HC must be considered as an emergent issue. Simple cystotomy amd removal of the laminated membranes are adequate treatment of choice. Meticulous closure of the bronchial openings is mandatory to avoid prolonged air leak. Cappitonage is unnecessary. PMID: 32779410 [PubMed - in process]
