Strongyloides stercoralis Hyperinfection and Intractable Pulmonary Hemorrhage

A 10-year-old previously healthy boy, hailing from an Indian village had a history of hematuria, proteinuria, and generalized swelling for 3  months. This was diagnosed as crescentic glomerulonephritis on renal biopsy, and the patient was started on steroids. He presented with hypotensive shock and respiratory distress after a massive episode of hemoptysis following recurrent episodes of hemoptysis of small amounts for a month prior to this episode. Evaluation for causes of recurrent hemoptysis such as tuberculosis and pulmonary vasculitis were inconclusive.

Authors: Zervou MI, Goulielmos GN, Matalliotakis M, Matalliotaki C, Spandidos DA, Eliopoulos E Abstract Adenosine deaminase 2 (ADA2) belongs to the novel family of adenosine deaminase growth factors (ADGFs), which play an important role in tissue development. The deficiency of adenosine deaminase 2 (DADA2) is a recently recognized autosomal recessive autoinflammatory disease, characterized by various systemic vascular and inflammatory manifestations, which is associated with ADA2 mutations. Considering that a recent screening of an international registry of children with systemic primary vasculitis revealed novel a...

Publication date: Available online 25 January 2020Source: Ticks and Tick-borne DiseasesAuthor(s): Sudheesh N, Roger Hewson, Babak Afrough, Kevin Bewley, Govindakarnavar ArunkumarAbstractKyasanur Forest disease virus (KFDV) and Alkhurma hemorrhagic fever virus (AHFV) are enveloped, positive-stranded RNA viruses of clinical importance with complex enzootic life cycles involving hematophagous ticks which feed on small and large mammals. Humans and monkeys are dead-end hosts for these viruses. Recent trends in epidemiological data suggest both virus incidences are steadily increasing and their geographical distribution expandi...

Authors: Orsini D Abstract Poverty, high population density and unhealthy dwellings in Siena's historic district accounted for the spread of tuberculosis in its various forms between the mid-nineteenth century and the first three decades of the twentieth century. In this paper, the author relies on statistical data relating to a time span between 1898 and 1935 to discuss the high incidence of scrofula, or tuberculosis of the lymphatic glands, among Siena's infant population.The result is a description of the most important actions implemented at city level to prevent tuberculosis and to assist and treat sick childr...

Joshi, Debajyoti Bora, Debadatta Dhar (Chanda), Amitabha BhattacharjeeAbstractA wide range of intrinsic Acinetobacter-derived cephalosporinases (ADC) along with other carbapenemases has now been detected in Acinetobacter baumannii leaving clinicians with few treatment options. The present study reports the spread of ADC-30 co-producing KPC-2 along with other β-lactamases among carbapenem resistant A. baumanni...

We report here a rare tri-allelic variant at the D8S1179 locus in a 6-month-old female child, observed during routine paternity testing in the Indian Tamil population.DNA eluted from the blood samples collected on FTA elute microcards were subjected to STR typing for autosomal and sex STR loci using the commercial AmpFlSTR Identifiler Plus kit and the Promega PowerPlex® Fusion kit. Capillary electrophoresis was carried out in ABI 3130xl Genetic Analyzer and genotyped using GeneMapper ID-X Software v1.5. Copy number variations and aneuploidy status of chromosome 8 were analyzed using Multiplex ligation-dependent probe a...

This study was conducted to find the association of baseline blood pressure (BP) with pathophysiologic findings and later renal progression in chronic GN. Methods: Clinico-pathological findings including serum creatinine (Cr), proteinuria, pathological findings, and urinary Na excretion were analyzed in a total of 233 patients with IgA nephropathy from The Kyung-Hee Cohort of GN. Glomerular surface area (GSA) was measured by imaging analysis and urine angiotensinogen (AGT) concentrations by human ELISA kits. Results: Systolic BP was ≥130mmHg in 124 patients (53%). Systolic BP was negatively correlated with follo...
