Solid pseudopapillary neoplasm (SPN) of the pancreas presenting with ascites misdiagnosed as pancreatic tuberculosis: a case report and literature review.

CONCLUSION: Clinicians should consider the possibility of SPN for pancreatic heterogeneous masses. Multiple diagnostic imaging modalities and EUS-FNA may contribute to the preoperative diagnosis of this disease. PMID: 32211105 [PubMed]

Pathological infection caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis is still a major global health concern. Traditional diagnostic methods are time-consuming, less sensitive, and lack high specificity. Due to an increase in the pathogenic graph of mycobacterial infections especially in developing countries, there is an urgent requirement for a rapid, low cost, and highly sensitive diagnostic method. D29 mycobacteriophage, which is capable of infecting and killing M. tuberculosis, projects itself as a potential candidate for the development of novel diagnostic methods and phage therapy of mycobacterial infections. In our previous s...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTuberculosis is the number one infectious killer of people with HIV worldwide, but it can be both prevented and treated. Prevention of tuberculosis by screening for and treating latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI), along with the initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART), is the key component of HIV care.Recent FindingsWhile access to ART has increased worldwide, uptake and completion of LTBI treatment regimens among people living with HIV (PWH) are very poor. Concomitant TB-preventive therapy and ART are complex because of drug –drug interactions, but these can be managed. Recent clinical ...

We present the case of a 43 ‐year‐old man with suspected tuberculous pleurisy (TP). Thoracoscopy under local anaesthesia showed the entire pleura with scattered nodules. Nodules were biopsied by conventional biopsy forceps, but the tissue sample was small, so a cryobiopsy was performed. Histological analysis of the convent ional biopsy forceps and cryobiopsy specimen showed inflammation with lymphocytes and caseating granulomas. Tissue culture of conventional biopsy forceps was positive forMycobacterium tuberculosis, and all sensitivity tests were positive. But, the tissue culture of the cryobiopsy sample was negative....

(Natural News) Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) continues to be a global health threat. As microbial pathogens develop new resistance mechanisms, common infectious diseases become difficult to treat. As a consequence, they also become more dangerous. For instance, the World Health Organization (WHO) reports that in 2014, nearly half-a-million people died from tuberculosis, which was caused by a...

The World Health Organization has driven the charges leading to some of the 20th century’s greatest public health triumphs. And throughout WHO’s 72-year history, the U.S. has been the organization’s star player, coach, and biggest sponsor. During the WHO’s latest funding cycle, the U.S. contributed $893 million—15% of the entire budget and more than twice as much as any other country. That has been the norm for decades and put the U.S. at the center of the world’s most important public-health apparatus. ( function() { var func = function() { var iframe = document.getElemen...
