Causes of Hypertensive Anterior Uveitis in Thailand.
Conclusion: PCR evidence of infection with herpes group viruses was found in one-third of patients with hypertensive anterior uveitis; CMV being the most common pathogen. The PCR-positive group generally responded well to a combination of antiviral and anti-glaucoma treatment. PMID: 31697590 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
We reported an isolated case and 1 family with several individuals affected by CS. The isolated case showed typical features including fibrocystic breast disease, benign thyroid nodules, and multiple papillomatous lesions in the face and oral cavity and was caused by a novel nonsense mutation (c.940 G>T) in the PTEN gene. In the family, the proband showed erythema nodosum, duodenal ulcer, intestinal polyps, cervical lipoma, renal cysts, and glaucoma, whereas her family revealed multiple members with intestinal polyps and a sister with breast cancer diagnosed at early age.
Chikungunya (CHIK) fever is a tropical arbovirosis characterized by sudden fever, headache, rash, and severe arthralgia. The disease has been suggested to act as a trigger for several autoimmune disorders, especially rheumatoid arthritis. This abstract reports 2 cases of Sj ögren syndrome (SS) following CHIK infection. Both patients were female and presented with fever, arthralgia, rash, and arthritis during CHIK outbreak in Recife, Brazil. After several months, they developed severe sicca symptoms and 1 of them presented with parotid enlargement.
The therapeutic use of liquid nitrogen has been used since the 20th century for the treatment of various dermatologic, urologic, gynecologic, and oncologic diseases among others. However, this modality is not widespread in the stomatology specialty. It will be presented with a brief introduction of mechanism of action, equipment, technique, and results obtained in the following oral lesions: salivary gland (mucocele and ranula), reactive lesion (pyogenic granuloma), vascular lesions (varicosities and hemangioma), and viral infection (herpes simplex).
This reports a case of a 46-year-old female patient complaining of weakness, dysphagia, and a tongue lesion. She had history of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positivity, noncompliance with antiretroviral therapy, and pulmonary tuberculosis.
Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a chronic systemic disease. This condition can be manifested if the patient is infected by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). This virus attacks the immune system and interferes in the host resistance. Consequently, infected organisms become immunosuppressed and susceptible to acquiring other opportunistic infections and injuries. The HIV-related diseases most frequent in the oral cavity are candidiasis, gingivitis, oral hairy leukoplakia, herpes simplex, and Kaposi sarcoma.
This report describes an unusual ocular prosthetic rehabilitation of a 77-year-old patient with an atrophic anophthalmic cavity due to herpes zoster –induced loss.
The objective of this report is to describe 3 diagnostic challenges of oral lesions that affected the same posttransplant patient: an atypical herpes simplex virus lesion in ventral tongue, a gingival actinomycosis infection, and later a leukemic infiltration on the soft palate. A 57-year-old female patient first complained of a progressive and painful sublingual nodule for 3 days at D+35 of HSCT by extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma, and final diagnoses were atypical herpes simplex virus 1 and 2 infection.
Oncologic patients undergoing chemotherapy and during the immunosuppressive phase are more susceptible to the reactivation of viral infections from the family Herpesviridae. Oral ulcerations related to cytomegalovirus (CMV) are uncommon and rarely described in patients with solid tumors. A 65-year-old male patient under oncologic treatment because of a high-grade astrocytoma was admitted to our service complaining of pain on the right lateral border of the tongue with 5 weeks of evolution, without clinical improvement with topical corticosteroid use.
A 48-year-old female patient, a smoker and alcohol user, presented a painful ulcer lesion with a central crusty, bleeding-to-the-touch growth of 2.5 cm on her lower lip for 40 days. Also, skin lesions looked like eczematous dermatoses, and lymph nodes were soft and sore. Exfoliative cytology excluded malignancy, immunophenotype was negative, and histopathology showed formation of granulomas and vascular proliferations, suggesting Spirochaetas presence. Laboratorial examinations showed human hepesvirus 8/Epstein-Barr virus/cytomegalovirus ( −), HIV 1-2 (−), Venereal Disease Research Laboratory (+), rapid plasma ...
