Cladosporium Endogenous Endophthalmitis Mimicking Toxoplasma Retinochoroiditis.

Conclusion: Cladosporium can cause endogenous endophthalmitis and mimic toxoplasma retinochoroiditis. Vitreous biopsy can help in diagnosis in the absence of positive blood culture. Intravitreal voriconazole along with systemic voriconazole shows a good response. PMID: 31825695 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsThe results imply that youngsters with T1DM have a lower level of oral hygiene and are potentially at a higher risk of future oral disease, particularly when their metabolic disorder is uncontrolled. However, factors outside the oral cavity may also have a considerable impact on the initiation and progression of oral diseases.

We investigated the characteristics and associated factors of invasive fungal disease in patients with type  2 diabetes mellitus from Southern China for the first time. We found thatCandida albicans,Cryptococcus neoformans andAspergillus fumigatus were the leading agents. Prolonged hyperglycemia results in unfavorable outcomes. Correction of anemia and hypoalbuminemia might improve prognosis. AbstractAims/IntroductionA retrospective study was carried out to investigate the clinical characteristics and associated factors for invasive fungal disease in patients with type  2 diabetes mellitus.Materials and MethodsDe...

Publication date: Available online 30 November 2019Source: Microbial PathogenesisAuthor(s): Mehdi Hadadi‐Fishani, Ali Shakerimoghaddam, Azad KhalediAbstractDiagnosis of fungal co-infections in patients suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis has critical importance. Therefore, we aimed to determine the prevalence of candida coinfection in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis.The present systematic review of cross-sectional studies was conducted based on the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-analysis (PRISMA) Protocol. Studies published online in English from January 2001 to March 2019 were assessed....

Authors: Mohamed AA, Lu XL, Mounmin FA Abstract Esophageal candidiasis (EC) is the most common type of infectious esophagitis. In the gastrointestinal tract, the esophagus is the second most susceptible to candida infection, only after the oropharynx. Immunocompromised patients are most at risk, including patients with HIV/AIDS, leukemia, diabetics, and those who are receiving corticosteroids, radiation, and chemotherapy. Another group includes those who used antibiotics frequently and those who have esophageal motility disorder (cardiac achalasia and scleroderma). Patients complained of pain on swallowing, difficu...

AbstractObjectivesA retrospective study was performed to investigate the clinical characteristics and associated factors for invasive fungal disease (IFD) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).MethodsDemographic and clinical data were recorded. Associated factors were analyzed by logistic regression analysis.ResultsIFD was diagnosed in 120 patients with T2DM (prevalence, 0.4%). Yeast infection (56/120, 46.7%), including candidiasis (31/56, 55.4%) and cryptococcosis (25/56, 44.6%) was the most common. Urinary tract was mainly involved in candidiasis (12/31, 38.7%). More than half of the cryptococcosis (16/25, 64....

CONCLUSIONS: The current study reveals the high case fatality rates among critically ill patients suffering from candidemia admitted to ICU. Herein, we highlight the importance of identifying non-C. albicansCandida species and reinforce the idea of carrying out epidemiological surveillances and antifungal susceptibility tests.

Abstract Repurposing of currently approved medications is an attractive option for development of novel treatment strategies against physiological and infectious diseases. The anti-diabetic sulfonylurea glyburide has demonstrated off-target capacity to inhibit activation of the NLRP3 inflammasome in a variety of disease models, including vaginal candidiasis caused primarily by the fungal pathogen Candida albicans Therefore, we sought to determine which of the currently approved sulfonylurea drugs prevent release of IL-1β, a major inflammasome effector, during C. albicans challenge of the human macrophage-like...

AbstractCandiduria is commonly seen in hospitalized patients and most of the patients are asymptomatic, but it may be due to cystitis, pyelonephritis, prostatitis, epididymo-orchitis or disseminated candidiasis. Major risk factors are diabetes mellitus, indwelling urinary catheters, use of broad-spectrum antibiotics, urinary obstruction, and admission to intensive care units.Candida urinary tract infections can be caused by hematogenous spread following candidemia, or retrograde route via the urethra. The presence ofCandida species in urine in asymptomatic patients does not warrant antifungal therapy except neutropenic pat...
