Anaplastic large-cell lymphoma in AIDS.

We present a case of a newly diagnosed AIDS patient with Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia, Epstein-Barr virus, and cytomegalovirus infections who was found to have widely metastatic kinase-negative anaplastic large-cell lymphoma. This case demonstrates the diversity in the malignant presentation of HIV-infected patients, outside of the more commonly observed non-Hodgkin lymphomas. PMID: 26130896 [PubMed]

Authors: Afsharpooyan S, Mohammadian T Abstract Helicobacter pylori infection occurs throughout the world between countries and races. A seroprevalence study of H. pylori infection in the occurrence of atherosclerosis (ASc) has been considered to be the main cause of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) in part of Iran. From 600 volunteers, 97 serum samples were selected and tested for the presence of H. pylori infection. Positive and negative H. pylori infection samples were then selected for Chlamydia pneumonia and cytomegalovirus infection. Their serum levels for high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and IL-6 tit...

Bertani, Luca Businaro, Paolo Bisegna, Claudia Matteucci, Federica CaselliAbstractThe study and the characterization of cell death mechanisms are fundamental in cell biology research. Traditional death/viability assays usually involve laborious sample preparation and expensive equipment or reagents. In this work, we use electrical impedance spectroscopy as a label-free methodology to characterize viable, necrotic and apoptotic human lymphoma U937 cells. A s...

Abstract Radiation therapy plays a critical role in the management of a wide range of hematologic malignancies. The optimal radiation dose and target volume, and safe and effective ways of integrating radiation with systemic agents, vary depending on the histologic subtypes, stage at presentation, patient performance status, response to systemic therapy if given, treatment intent, and patient preferences. Limiting doses to surrounding organs without sacrificing disease control is of paramount importance. Reducing radiation doses and treatment volume in selected cases, and the use of advanced radiotherapy technolog...

on Working Group Abstract When life-threatening, critical events occur in the operating room, the fast-paced, high-distraction atmosphere often leaves little time to think or deliberate about management options. Success depends on applying a team approach to quickly implement well-rehearsed, systematic, evidence-based assessment and treatment protocols. Mobile devices offer resources for readily accessible, easily updatable information that can be invaluable during perioperative critical events. We developed a mobile device version of the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia 26 Pediatric Crisis paper checklists-the Pe...

CONCLUSIONS: Chorioamnionitis and endometritis were the most common causes of sepsis, together accounting for about half of cases. Notable differences were observed in the sensitivity and specificity of sepsis screening tools with the highest to lowest sensitivity being SIRS, MEW, and qSOFA criteria, and the highest to lowest specificity being qSOFA, MEW, and SIRS. Mortality was doubled in the cohort of patients who received antibiotics after>1 hour. Clinicians need to be vigilant to identify cases of peripartum sepsis early in its course and prioritize timely antibiotic therapy. PMID: 31743182 [PubMed - in process]

HaleAbstractPatients with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection and Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) are at risk for multiple infectious and oncologic complications. In such cases, Occam’s razor need-not apply: multiple infections and malignancies are often present concurrently upon presentation to care. A patient off anti-retroviral therapy (ART) for several years developed advanced HIV infection (CD4 count 19 cells/uL) and presented with five simu...

LITFL • Life in the Fast Lane Medical Blog LITFL • Life in the Fast Lane Medical Blog - Emergency medicine and critical care medical education blog aka Tropical Travel Trouble 009 The diagnosis of HIV is no longer fatal and the term AIDS is becoming less frequent. In many countries, people with HIV are living longer than those with diabetes. This post will hopefully teach the basics of a complex disease and demystify some of the potential diseases you need to consider in those who are severely immunosuppressed. While trying to be comprehensive this post can not be exhaustive (as you can imagine any patient with ...
