Seizures that occur during a febrile episode. It is a common condition, affecting 2-5% of children aged 3 months to five years. An autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance has been identified in some families. The majority are simple febrile seizures (generally defined as generalized onset, single seizures with a duration of less than 30 minutes). Complex febrile seizures are characterized by focal onset, duration greater than 30 minutes, and/or more than one seizure in a 24 hour period. The likelihood of developing epilepsy (i.e., a nonfebrile seizure disorder) following simple febrile seizures is low. Complex febrile seizures are associated with a moderately increased incidence of epilepsy. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p784)

Meningeal inflammation produced by CRYPTOCOCCUS NEOFORMANS, an encapsulated yeast that tends to infect individuals with ACQUIRED IMMUNODEFICIENCY SYNDROME and other immunocompromised states. The organism enters the body through the respiratory tract, but symptomatic infections are usually limited to the lungs and nervous system. The organism may also produce parenchymal brain lesions (torulomas). Clinically, the course is subacute and may feature HEADACHE; NAUSEA; PHOTOPHOBIA; focal neurologic deficits; SEIZURES; cranial neuropathies; and HYDROCEPHALUS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp721-2)

Microascus cinereus (Anamorph scopulariopsis) brain abscess in a bone marrow transplant recipient. (1/73)

We report the first documented case of brain abscess due to the dematiaceous fungus Microascus cinereus, an organism common in soil and stored grain. M. cinereus was isolated from brain abscess material from a bone marrow transplant recipient. The patient responded well to treatment by amphotericin B lipid complex, itraconazole, and a craniotomy but later died from secondary complications caused by graft-versus-host disease.  (+info)

SCH 56592, amphotericin B, or itraconazole therapy of experimental murine cerebral phaeohyphomycosis due to Ramichloridium obovoideum ("Ramichloridium mackenziei"). (2/73)

Ramichloridium obovoideum ("Ramichloridium makenziei") is a rare cause of lethal cerebral phaeohyphomycosis. It has been, so far, geographically restricted to the Middle East. BALB/c mice were inoculated with two strains of R. obovoideum intracranially. Therapy with amphotericin B, itraconazole, or the investigational triazole SCH 56592 was conducted for 10 days. Half the mice were monitored for survival and half were killed for determination of the fungal load in brain tissue. Recipients of SCH 56592 had significantly prolonged survival and lower brain fungal burden, and this result was found for mice infected with both of the fungal strains tested. Itraconazole reduced the brain fungal load in mice infected with one strain but not the other, while amphotericin B had no effect on brain fungal concentrations. This study indicates a possible role of SCH 56592 in the treatment of the serious cerebral phaeohyphomycosis due to R. obovoideum.  (+info)

Recurrent blastomycosis of the central nervous system: case report and review. (3/73)

Although blastomycosis of the central nervous system (CNS) occurs in approximately 4% of patients with blastomycosis, recurrent CNS blastomycosis is very rare. We review the clinical features, treatment, and outcome of 4 previously reported cases. We also report a case of recurrent CNS blastomycosis successfully treated with surgery and liposomal amphotericin B after an inadequate response to amphotericin B therapy. This treatment may be an alternate approach for management of similar cases.  (+info)

Comparative efficacy and distribution of lipid formulations of amphotericin B in experimental Candida albicans infection of the central nervous system. (4/73)

The central nervous system (CNS) distribution and antifungal efficacy of all 4 approved formulations of amphotericin B (AmB) were investigated in a rabbit model of hematogenous Candida albicans meningoencephalitis. Treatment with AmB deoxycholate (1 mg/kg/day) or liposomal AmB (5 mg/kg/day) yielded the highest peak plasma concentration (C(max)), area under concentration versus time curve from zero to 24 h (AUC(0-24)), and time during dosing level tau Ttau>minimum inhibitory complex (MIC) values and led to complete eradication of C. albicans from brain tissue (P<.05 vs. untreated controls). By comparison, AmB colloidal dispersion and AmB lipid complex (5 mg/kg/day each) were only partially effective (not significant vs. untreated controls). There was a strong correlation of C(max), AUC(0-24), C(max)/MIC, AUC(0-24)/MIC, and Ttau>MIC with clearance of C. albicans from brain tissue (P+info)

Molecular variability of Pseudallescheria boydii, a neurotropic opportunist. (5/73)

The sequences of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) ribosomal DNA (rDNA) domain data obtained by restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis with 18S rDNA and fingerprinting (M13) for clinical and environmental strains of Pseudallescheria boydii (anamorph, Scedosporium apiospermum) were compared to those for related species of Pseudallescheria, Petriella, and Scedosporium. The infraspecific variability of P. boydii was considerable. There were five different lengths in the 18S rDNAs within P. boydii due to the occurrence of introns. In several cases, strains isolated from a single pond or ditch proved to be genetically very different. Nevertheless, some lineages had a regional distribution. The variability found is unlikely to be explained by meiotic recombination alone. Pseudallescheria fusoidea, Pseudallescheria ellipsoidea, and Pseudallescheria angusta were found to be synonyms for P. boydii. Scedosporium prolificans was found amid Petriella species in the ITS tree and showed no infraspecific variability. The type strain of Rhinocladium lesnei proved to be identical to Graphium putredinis. Acladium castellanii, which is morphologically reminiscent of S. apiospermum, was also found to be a separate species, but with an unknown affiliation.  (+info)

Aspergillosis case-fatality rate: systematic review of the literature. (6/73)

To update the case-fatality rate (CFR) associated with invasive aspergillosis according to underlying conditions, site of infection, and antifungal therapy, data were systematically reviewed and pooled from clinical trials, cohort or case-control studies, and case series of >/=10 patients with definite or probable aspergillosis. Subjects were 1941 patients described in studies published after 1995 that provided sufficient outcome data; cases included were identified by MEDLINE and EMBASE searches. The main outcome measure was the CFR. Fifty of 222 studies met the inclusion criteria. The overall CFR was 58%, and the CFR was highest for bone marrow transplant recipients (86.7%) and for patients with central nervous system or disseminated aspergillosis (88.1%). Amphotericin B deoxycholate and lipid formulations of amphotericin B failed to prevent death in one-half to two-thirds of patients. Mortality is high despite improvements in diagnosis and despite the advent of newer formulations of amphotericin B. Underlying patient conditions and the site of infection remain important prognostic factors.  (+info)

Isolation of a Nodulisporium species from a case of cerebral phaeohyphomycosis. (7/73)

A fungal infection of the brain of a 55-year-old male patient is reported. The lesion and involved fungus were located exclusively in the right medial temporo-parietal region. The patient was successfully treated with surgical resection of the lesion and antifungal chemotherapy. Few pathogenic dematiaceous fungi exhibit neurotropism and can cause primary infection in the central nervous system (CNS). The etiological agent is described as a Nodulisporium species. To date Nodulisporium has never been reported as an agent of CNS infection in humans.  (+info)

Antifungal therapy for central nervous system histoplasmosis, using a newly developed intracranial model of infection. (8/73)

The outcome of central nervous system (CNS) histoplasmosis is often unfavorable. Although fluconazole plays an integral role in treatment of fungal meningitis, its role in the treatment of histoplasmosis is hampered by reduced activity and potential development of resistance. A murine model of CNS histoplasmosis was used to evaluate the hypothesis that a combination of amphotericin B and fluconazole therapy would be superior to amphotericin B monotherapy. Groups of B6C3F(1) mice were infected by injection of Histoplasma capsulatum into the subarachnoid space. The addition of fluconazole hindered the antifungal effect of amphotericin B, as determined by measurement of fungal burden, suggesting antagonism in the brain. Fluconazole was less effective as a single agent than was amphotericin B, despite the greater penetration of fluconazole into brain tissues. The hypothesis that amphotericin B-fluconazole combination therapy would be superior to amphotericin B monotherapy for treatment of CNS histoplasmosis was not supported by this study.  (+info)

Successful Treatment of Cerebral Pheohyphomycosis Caused by Cladophialophora bantiana Infection in a Solid Organ Transplant Patient: A Case Report and a Review of Literature
A fungal endophyte, Ramichloridium cerophilum, was identified as a Class 2 endophytes species obtained from the leaf of common sowthistle (Sonchus oleraceus L). This fungus was found to grow endophylically in the roots of Chinese cabbage seedlings. Light microscopy of cross-sections of colonized Chinese cabbage roots showed that the fungus penetrates through the outer epidermal cells, grows further into the inner cortex, and colonizes the cortical tissue. Isolates of R. cerophilum 28L-9 have shown the ability to increase biomass of a nonmycorrhizal plant, Chinese cabbage. This finding is the first report of R. cerophilum could help to improve nonmycorrhizal plant. Key words: Ramichloridium cerophilum, endophytic fungus, Chinese cabbage, plant growth promoting.

Phaeohyphomycosis is a heterogeneous group of mycotic infections caused by dematiaceous fungi whose morphologic characteristics in tissue include hyphae, yeast-like cells, or a combination of these. It can be associated an array of darkly-pigmented hyphomycetes including Alternaria species, Exophiala jeanselmei, and Rhinocladiella mackenziei. The term phaeohyphomycosis was introduced to determine infections caused by dematiaceous or pigmented filamentous fungi which contain melanin in their cell walls. Phaeohyphomycosis is an uncommon infection, however the number of case reported has been increasing in recent years. The presence of melanin in cell walls may be a virulence factor for the pathogens caused by the fungi. The outcome of antifungal treatment is poor, and mortality is almost 80%. Phaeohyphomycosis has been attributed to more than 100 species and 60 genera of fungi over the past several decades. The pathogens are considered opportunistic. Almost all cases of widely disseminated ...

Reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assays were performed using HPeV-specific 5 untranslated region (UTR)-targeted primers to detect HPeV in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples of children who presented with fever or neurologic symptoms from January 1, 2013 to July 31, 2014. HPeV genotyping was performed by sequencing of the viral protein 3/1 (VP3/VP1) region. Clinical and laboratory data were abstracted from medical records retrospectively, and compared with those of enterovirus (EV)-positive patients from same period.. Results: Of 102 CSF samples, HPeV was positive in 6 (5.9 %) and co-detected in 2 of 21 EV-positive samples. All the samples were typed as HPeV3. Two HPeV-positive patients were ,3 months of age, but four others were over the age of 1 year. While HPeV-positive infants under 1 year-old presented with sepsis-like illness without definite neurologic abnomalities, HPeV-positive children over 1-year-old presented with fever and neurologic symptoms such as seizure, ...

Blastomycosis is a potentially fatal fungal infection endemic to parts of North America. We used national multiple-cause-of-death data and census population estimates for 1990-2010 to calculate age-adjusted mortality rates and rate ratios (RRs). We modeled trends over time using Poisson regression. Death occurred more often among older persons (RR 2.11, 95% confidence limit [CL] 1.76, 2.53 for those 75-84 years of age vs. 55-64 years), men (RR 2.43, 95% CL 2.19, 2.70), Native Americans (RR 4.13, 95% CL 3.86, 4.42 vs. whites), and blacks (RR 1.86, 95% CL 1.73, 2.01 vs. whites), in notably younger persons of Asian origin (mean = 41.6 years vs. 64.2 years for whites); and in the South (RR 18.15, 95% CL 11.63, 28.34 vs. West) and Midwest (RR 23.10, 95% CL14.78, 36.12 vs. West). In regions where blastomycosis is endemic, we recommend that the diagnosis be considered in patients with pulmonary disease and that it be a reportable disease ...
INTRODUCTION. It is the purpose of this paper briefly to review the pertinent literature on the subject of blastomycosis and to report another proved case of systemic disease with involvement of the meninges. Although blastomycosis is a rather uncommon disease, it is nevertheless a very important clinical entity when it does occur, since the systemic variety usually terminates fatally. Both the systemic and cutaneous forms of the infection can successfully mimic myriad other diseases frequently encountered in the practice of medicine. Therefore, physicians in general should be familiar with the various clinical manifestations of this disease in order to establish ...
Blastomycosis may present with fever, pain in the chest and production of sputum. Blastomycosis is caused by Blastomyces dermatitidis.
Blastomyces lives in the environment and is a fungis that produces fungal spores. When people or animals breathe in the spores, they are at risk for developing blastomycosis.

In addition to the history and physical examination, clinical diagnosis of CNS infections requires a spinal fluid analysis combined with neuroimaging using either magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scan. Microbiologic diagnosis of bacterial infections frequently is made using Gram stain and culture of spinal fluid and blood. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays and serologic tests are also useful. Antimicrobial therapy requires that the antibiotics be bactericidal and that they penetrate the blood-brain barrier. Some CNS infections, such as a brain abscess, often require surgical drainage. ...
Infiltration of the central nervous system (CNS) by leukemic blasts represents one of the problematic disease manifestations of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Modern prophylactic measures have decreased the rate of CNS involvement in ALL. However, they produce adverse side effects, including cognitive dysfunction, seizures, and growth retardation, which have unique implications in pediatric patients that constitute the bulk of ALL cases. While there has been significant research into how ALL cells are nurtured in sanctuary sites, such as the bone marrow, there is a paucity of literature reporting on the mechanisms through which ALL cells migrate into the CNS and how they interact with cellular constituents of the CNS to evade treatment in this unique sanctuary site. To this end, the overall goals of the current body of work were to understand how ALL cells interact with human brain-derived microvascular endothelial cells (HBMEnd) and to understand how cellular constituents of the subarachnoid space
