Human herpesvirus 6 DNA in cerebrospinal fluid specimens from allogeneic bone marrow transplant patients: does it have clinical significance? (1/161)

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) specimens from 22 allogeneic bone marrow transplant patients with central nervous system (CNS) symptoms (cases) and 107 patients who were immunocompromised but did not have CNS symptoms (controls) were assayed for human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) DNA. HHV-6 DNA was detected in CSF specimens from five (23%) of 22 cases and in CSF specimens from one (0.9%) of 107 controls (P < .001, Fisher's exact test). In addition, none of the five cases with HHV-6 DNA detected in CSF samples had any other identified cause of their CNS symptoms, and none of the other 11 cases with known causes for their CNS diseases had HHV-6 DNA detected in CSF samples (P = .03, Fisher's exact test). In three cases, HHV-6 variant B was identified, and the HHV-6 variant could not be defined in the other two cases. Prophylaxis with acyclovir did not prevent the occurrence of HHV-6-associated CNS disease after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. Four cases' conditions were improved or they were cured after treatment with either ganciclovir or foscarnet, and one case died of CNS disease despite foscarnet treatment.  (+info)

Acute symptomatic seizures - incidence and etiological spectrum: a hospital-based study from South India. (2/161)

We analysed the incidence and etiological spectrum of acute symptomatic seizures in 2531 patients with seizure disorder, both in-patients and out-patients, seen in a university hospital in South India. Seizure(s) occurred in close temporal association with an acute systemic, metabolic, or toxic insult or in association with an acute central nervous system (CNS) insult in 22.5% of patients. Of the 572 patients, 8% could be grouped under the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) category 4.1 and 92% under category 1.2. The seizure type was generalized in all the patients included in category 4.1 and 78% of patients grouped in category 2.1 had simple or complex partial seizure(s) with or without secondary generalization. Sixteen (3%) patients developed status epilepticus during the acute phase of illness and 7% of patients had only single seizure. Infections of the central nervous system (CNS) and single CT enhancing lesions (SCTEL) together accounted for 77% of the provoking factors in patients grouped under category 2.1. These two etiological factors together accounted for 95% of etiologies in patients aged under 16 years. SCTEL and neurocysticercosis together accounted for 67% of the provoking factors. In 14% of patients cerebrovascular diseases were the etiological factors and 60% of the patients were aged over 40 years. In patients with cerebrovascular diseases, aged under 40 years, cortical sinovenous thrombosis accounted for 37%. SCTEL was the provoking factor in 61% of patients with isolated seizure. Infections of CNS and SCTEL together accounted for 62.5% of etiological factors for status epilepticus. This study illustrates that the etiological spectrum of acute symptomatic seizures in this part of the world is different from that described from developed countries and CNS infections account for a significant number of cases.  (+info)

The mumps virus neurovirulence safety test in Rhesus monkeys: a comparison of mumps virus strains. (3/161)

Wild type mumps viruses are highly neurotropic and a frequent cause of aseptic meningitis in unvaccinated humans. To test whether attenuated mumps viruses used in the manufacture of mumps vaccines have neurovirulent properties, a monkey neurovirulence safety test (MNVT) is performed. However, results with several mumps virus MNVTs have raised questions as to whether the test can reliably discriminate neurovirulent from nonneurovirulent mumps virus strains. Here, various mumps virus strains representing a wide range of neuropathogenicity were tested in a standardized MNVT. A trend of higher neurovirulence scores was observed in monkeys inoculated with wild type mumps virus versus vaccine strains, although differences were not statistically significant. Results indicated the need for further examination and refinement of the MNVT or for development of alternative MNVTs.  (+info)

Tuberculosis of the central nervous system. (4/161)

Tuberculous involvement of the brain and spinal cord are common neurological disorders in developing countries and have recently shown a resurgence in developed ones. Tuberculous meningitis is an important manifestation and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Diagnosis is based on clinical features, cerebrospinal fluid changes, and imaging characteristics. Bacteriological confirmation is not possible in all cases as serological tests do not have sufficient sensitivity and specificity. The polymerase chain reaction shows promise for the future. Appropriate chemotherapeutic agents should be administered as early as possible, although there is no unanimity concerning chemotherapeutic regimens or optimal duration of treatment. The patient's clinical stage at presentation is the most important prognostic factor. The role of corticosteroids is controversial but they should be administered to all patients presenting in stage III. Surgical procedures are directed at management of the hydrocephalus. Focal lesions, intracranial tuberculomas, and tuberculous abscesses, are usually located in cerebral or cerebellar hemispheres, uncommonly in brainstem and very rarely in spinal cord. They do not usually require surgical intervention and respond well to antituberculous treatment, along with corticosteroids.  (+info)

Measles virus infection in a transgenic model: virus-induced immunosuppression and central nervous system disease. (5/161)

Measles virus (MV) infects 40 million persons and kills one million per year primarily by suppressing the immune system and afflicting the central nervous system (CNS). The lack of a suitable small animal model has impeded progress of understanding how MV causes disease and the development of novel therapies and improved vaccines. We tested a transgenic mouse line in which expression of the MV receptor CD46 closely mimicked the location and amount of CD46 found in humans. Virus replicated in and was recovered from these animals' immune systems and was associated with suppression of humoral and cellular immune responses. Infectious virus was recovered from the CNS, replicated primarily in neurons, and spread to distal sites presumably by fast axonal transport. Thus, a small animal model is available for analysis of MV pathogenesis.  (+info)

Neuropathogenesis of simian immunodeficiency virus in neonatal rhesus macaques. (6/161)

Neonatal human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection usually occurs intrapartum or postpartum and results in a higher incidence of neurological dysfunction than is seen in adults. To explore the neuropathogenesis of neonatal HIV infection, we infected neonatal macaques with simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) and followed the course of infection focusing on early time points. Infected neonates had decreased brain growth and mild histological changes in brain that resembled those seen in pediatric AIDS, including perivascular infiltrates of mononuclear cells, mineralization of vessels in the basal ganglia, and gliosis. The perivascular lesions and gliosis were associated with the presence of occasional infected cells that required in situ hybridization with radiolabeled riboprobes for detection. Using this technique, SIV-infected cells were detected in the brain parenchyma within 7 days of infection. These findings were confirmed by nested PCR for SIVgag DNA in brain and RT-PCR for viral RNA in cerebrospinal fluid. Together, these techniques revealed SIV infection of the CNS in 12 of 13 neonates infected with SIVmac239, 3 of 3 infected with SIVmac251, and 2 of 2 infected with SIVmac239/316. The prevalence of CNS infection was indistinguishable from that of older animals infected with the same dose and stock of virus, but neonates appeared to have fewer infected cells in the CNS and detecting them required more sensitive techniques. This observation was true regardless of inoculum and despite the fact that neonates had equal or greater viral loads in the periphery compared with older animals. These data suggest that maturation-dependent host factors have a major impact on the neuropathogenesis of pediatric AIDS.  (+info)

Outpatient parenteral antimicrobial therapy for central nervous system infections. (7/161)

Patients with central nervous system (CNS) infections are increasingly treated with intravenous antimicrobials outside the hospital, but the safety and problems associated with this therapy have not been well defined. To examine this issue, we reviewed 68 cases in which outpatient intravenous antimicrobial therapy (OPAT) was received through our physician office-based infusion clinic. All infections were cured, and no deaths occurred during therapy. Seizures occurred in 2 patients but without significant injury and apparently were unrelated to antimicrobial therapy. Eleven patients (16%) were hospitalized after starting OPAT, 5 for procedures and 6 for medical reasons. The antimicrobial used was changed in 13 cases (19%) because of an adverse effect or clinical failure. OPAT can be safe and effective for patients with CNS infections, but patients must be carefully selected and monitored closely.  (+info)

Effective use of polymerase chain reaction for diagnosis of central nervous system infections. (8/161)

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based testing of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) specimens has become standard for confirmatory diagnosis of central nervous system (CNS) infections; however, these tests increase health care costs. We reviewed 3-year data from 974 consecutive CSF specimens submitted for detection of seven pathogens by PCR. In 1997, 237 of 367 specimens (64.6%) were submitted for multiple tests, compared with 203 of 522 (38.9%) in 1996 and 18 of 85 (21.2%) in 1995. In each year the arrival of new house officers coincided with a peak in multiple testing. Among 732 specimens submitted for herpesvirus detection, results were positive for 24 (4.6%) of 523 specimens with increased leukocyte counts or protein levels. None of 209 specimens with normal leukocyte and protein levels were positive for herpesviruses. None of 471 CSF specimens submitted for Borrelia burgdorferi detection were PCR-positive. Use of protein and leukocytes to screen CSF specimens before employing PCR for herpesvirus detection would save almost one-third of costs without reducing sensitivity.  (+info)

CNS infections, such as meningitis, are considered neurologic emergencies that require prompt recognition, diagnosis, and management to prevent death and residual neurologic deficits. Improperly treated, CNS infections are associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality. Despite advances in care, the overall mortality of bacterial meningitis in the United States remains at approximately 15%, and at least 10% to 30% of survivors are afflicted with neurologic impairment, including hearing loss, hemiparesis, and learning disabilities.1,2 Antimicrobial therapy and preventive vaccines have revolutionized management and improved outcomes of bacterial meningitis and other CNS infections dramatically. ...

Anaerobic bacteria cause serious life-threatening infections such as endocarditis, sepsis, intra abdominal, pleuro-pulmonary and central nervous systems infections. Most infections are polymicrobial and involve aerobes and anaerobes. Empiric therapy is generally based on the expected pathogens and the particular type of infection. Even when specimens are cultured and anaerobes identified, not all laboratories perform susceptibility testing. The clinician often relies on published surveillance data when selecting treatment regimens. Antimicrobial susceptibility of anaerobic bacteria is becoming increasingly unpredictable. Resistance can vary significantly and patterns differ geographically, and even within units of the same hospital. From June 2005 until February 2007, 180 consecutive anaerobes isolated from relevant, non- repetitive clinical specimens were tested routinely with the E test method for susceptibility to amoxicillin/ clavulanate (XL), clindamycin (Cm), metronidazole (Mz), penicillin ...
RESULTS. Ninety-four consecutive records were evaluated.

Regarding unit statistics, investigations performed included a complete blood count, blood glucose, serum calcium, serum electrolytes, renal function tests, liver function tests, chest X-ray, and urinalysis. The mean number of routine investigations was seven. The average length of stay was 2 days. There were no cases of delay in the diagnosis of central nervous system infection. Inappropriate investigations and treatment were as follows: electroencephalography 11%, computer tomography brain scan 2%, and maintenance anticonvulsants 2%. All patients were discharged home with panadol regardless of clinical state ...
Toxoplasma gondii is a common central nervous system infection in individuals with immunocompromised immune systems, such as AIDS patients. Interferon-gamma (IFNgamma) is the main cytokine mediating protection against T. gondii. Our previous studies found IFNgamma significantly inhibits T. gondii in astrocytes via an IGTP dependent mechanism. The IGTP-dependent- IFNgamma stimulated inhibition is not understood but recent studies found IGTP induces disruption of the parasitophorous vacuole (PV) in macrophages. In the current study, we have further investigated the mechanism of IFNgamma inhibition and the role of IGTP in the vacuolar disruption in murine astrocytes. Vacuolar disruption was found to be dependent upon IGTP as PV disruption was not observed in IGTP deficient astrocytes (IGTP(-/-)) and PV disruption could be induced in IGTP(-/-) astrocytes transfected with IGTP. Live cell-imaging studies using GFP-IGTP found IGTP is delivered to the PV via host cell ER early after invasion and that ...
Plasmodium falciparum remains one of the most common causes of central nervous system infection worldwide. Recently, differences between the pathophysiology of cerebral malaria in African children and nonimmune adults have been discovered, new syndromes occurring after malaria infection described, and mechanisms for the pathogenesis proposed. In addition, new antimalarial agents have been examined worldwide and initial studies on supportive studies conducted. This paper reviews these new advances, putting them into the perspective of the more established knowledge.
The potential of nitric oxide (NO) as a rapid assay biomarker, one that could provide a quantum leap in acute care, remains largely untapped. NO plays a crucial role as bronchodilator, vasodilator and inflammatory mediator. The main objective of this review is to demonstrate how NO is a molecule of heavy interest in various acute disease states along the emergency department and critical care spectrum: respiratory infections, central nervous system infections, asthma, acute kidney injury, sepsis, septic shock, and myocardial ischemia, to name just a few. We discuss how NO and its oxidative metabolites, nitrite and nitrate, are readily detectable in several body compartments and fluids, and as such they are associated with many of the pathophysiological processes mentioned above. With methods such as high performance liquid chromatography and chemiluminescence these entities are relatively easy and inexpensive to analyze. Emphasis is placed on diagnostic rapidity, as this relates directly to quality of

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, ...

The study of the brain continues to expand at a rapid pace providing fascinating insights into the basic mechanisms underlying nervous system illnesses. New tools, ranging from genome sequencing to non-invasive imaging, and research fueled by public and private investment in biomedical research has been transformative in our understanding of nervous system diseases and has led to an explosion of published primary research articles. Diseases of the Nervous System summarizes the current state of basic and clinical knowledge for the most common neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions. In a systematic progression, each chapter covers either a single disease or a group of related disorders ranging from static insults to primary and secondary progressive neurodegenerative diseases, neurodevelopmental illnesses, illnesses resulting from nervous system infection and neuropsychiatric conditions. Chapters follow a common format and are stand-alone units, each covering disease history, clinical presentation,
In this thesis, I explore the epidemiological features of CNS infections using a population-based dataset and analyze CSF samples from patients with meningitis or encephalitis of unknown cause using molecular methods. In the second chapter, I review the literature on the epidemiology of meningitis and encephalitis, and current diagnostic approaches, focusing on the strengths and limitations of various diagnostic methods. In the third chapter, I investigate the causes of meningitis and encephalitis using a population-based dataset from the National Health Insurance Research Dataset (NHIRD) from Taiwan, representing the interval from 1996 to 2008. The analysis assesses differences in the disease between known and unknown cause groups in terms of incidence, demographic features, seasonal and geographic distribution. In the fourth chapter, I analyze CSF samples from patients with meningitis or encephalitis of unknown cause using a tiered molecular approach to discover the undetected or novel pathogens;
HIV-positive (n=1862) and HIV-negative (n=2169) men who have sex with men were included in the analyses. In the HIV-positive men, the median CD4 count was 585 cells/mm3, and the average duration of ART use was 10.6 years. The incidence of neurologic disorders was higher in HIV-positive men than in HIV-negative men. The median age of first neurologic diagnosis was 48 in the HIV-positive men compared with 57 in the HIV-negative ones. Peripheral nerve and muscle disorders (the most common diagnoses), nervous system infections, dementia, and seizures were more common in HIV-infected than in HIV-negative men; when only confirmed cases were counted, stroke was not more common in the HIV-infected group. Although this study took place during the era of effective therapy, 21% of HIV-infected patients with a neurologic disorder were not receiving ART at the time of the complication ...

Definition, Etiology, PathogenesisTop. A brain abscess is a focal infection of the brain parenchyma. It spreads directly by continuity or via a hematogenous route (even from remote primary foci, such as the endocardium). An early inflammatory infiltrate disintegrates after ~2 weeks, forming a reservoir of purulent material enclosed in a thin, well-vascularized capsule that is surrounded by a zone of cerebral edema. Etiology varies with the location of the primary site of infection as well as other risk factors: 1) Sinusitis: Aerobic or anaerobic streptococci, Haemophilus spp, Bacteroides spp, Fusobacterium spp, Streptococcus anginosus.. 2) Otitis media or mastoiditis: Streptococci, aerobic gram-negative intestinal bacilli (particularly Proteus spp), Bacteroides spp, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.. 3) Endocarditis: Viridans-group streptococci.. 4) Trauma: Staphylococcus aureus.. 5) Impaired cell-mediated immunity: Fungi Candida spp, Aspergillus spp, rarely Cryptococcus neoformans; in patients with AIDS ...

The procedure allows measurement of the pressure of cerebrospinal fluid, its cytological composition, biochemical content, and microbial as well as serological characteristics.Indications-the commonest diagnostic indications are clinical suspicion of central nervous system infection (meningitis, encephalitis), subarachnoid haemorrhage, and demyelinating diseases (central and peripheral); the commonest therapeutic indications are idiopathic intracranial hypertension and for intrathecal administration of drugs....
Itraconazole has a broader spectrum of activity than fluconazole (but not as broad as voriconazole or posaconazole). In particular, it is active against Aspergillus, which fluconazole is not. It is also licensed for use in blastomycosis, sporotrichosis, histoplasmosis, and onychomycosis. Itraconazole is over 99% protein-bound and has virtually no penetration into cerebrospinal fluid. Therefore, it should never be used to treat meningitis or other central nervous system infections. According to the Johns Hopkins Abx Guide, it has "negligible CSF penetration, however treatment has been successful for cryptococcal and coccidioidal meningitis".. It is also prescribed for systemic infections, such as aspergillosis, candidiasis, and cryptococcosis, where other antifungal drugs are inappropriate or ineffective.. Itraconazole has also recently been explored as an anticancer agent for patients with basal cell carcinoma, non-small cell lung cancer, and prostate cancer. For example, in a phase II study ...
Encephalitis caused by Toxoplasma gondii is the most frequent cause of focal central nervous system infection in patients with AIDS. Untreated, the encephalitis is fatal. Standard treatment for toxoplasmic encephalitis is associated with serious adverse effects. Thus, alternative treatments are needed.. Patients with toxoplasmosis are given azithromycin at doses starting at the lowest dose for the first cohort, an intermediate dose for the second cohort, and a higher dose for the third cohort. Subsequent cohorts may receive azithromycin in increased dosage, if needed to determine the MTD. All patients also receive pyrimethamine. Folinic acid is also provided for as long as patients receive pyrimethamine. Patients are evaluated for clinical response to treatment at days 3, 7, and 14, and weekly for 6 weeks. Maintenance treatment with azithromycin continues for an additional 24 weeks. Patients who complete the study period without relapse or significant toxicity are offered continued therapy by ...

The Atlas of Infectious Diseases/Pediatric Infectious Diseases represents the final book in the 11-volume series edited by Gerald L. Mandell, one of the preeminent experts in the field of infectious diseases. This concluding volume covers a full spectrum of pediatric infectious disease topics with 16 chapters written by 24 authors. Topics covered include six chapters on viral illnesses, a chapter each on streptococcal and staphylococcal infections and a chapter on tick-borne diseases. Other, more selective chapters include Kawasaki disease, tuberculosis, congenital infections and central nervous system infections. As the number of pediatric human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) cases continues to decline in the United States, the chapter dealing with HIV/AIDS will hopefully become more historical interest than necessity..

Background Congenital toxoplasmosis is associated with severe complications. two trimesters, acute toxoplasmosis contamination is usually characterised by septic symptoms, hepatosplenomegaly, thrombocytopenia, hyperbilirubinemia, and central nervous system infections [1, 7, 8] The latter typically present with encephalitis in combination with retinochorioiditis, hydrocephalus, intracranial calcifications, microphthalmia, and microcephaly, as well as calcifying necroses developing from reactive inflammations, to the point of spontaneous abortion [9]. In contrast, the majority of fetuses infected during the third trimester lack pathological findings at birth (70C90?%) [10, 11]. However, in 30C70?% of offspring with clinical abnormalities, those abnormalities are not detected in the beginning; these children typically have chorioretinitis, hearing loss, and mental retardation later in life [12, 13]. infections are mostly asymptomatic in adults and immunocompetent individuals; consequently, acute ...

In order to more precisely define a syndrome of medial temporal lobe epilepsy, histories and physical findings were evaluated in 67 patients studied with intracranial electrodes who had medial temporal seizure onset and became seizure free following temporal lobectomy. Patients with circumscribed, potentially epileptogenic mass lesions were excluded. Fifty-four patients (81%) had histories of convulsions during early childhood or infancy, 52 of which were associated with fever. Complicated febrile seizures occurred in 33 (94%) of the 35 patients in whom detailed descriptions of the febrile seizures were available. Bacterial (5) or viral (2) central nervous system infections were present in 7 patients with seizures and fevers. Other less common, but probably significant, risk factors included head trauma (10%) and birth trauma (3%). Only 5 patients had no apparent risk factors. The mean age at habitual seizure onset was 9 years. All patients had complex partial seizures, with half having only ...
Abstract. Widespread use of antibiotics may be important in the spread of antimicrobial resistance. We estimated the proportion of Lao in- and outpatients who had taken antibiotics before medical consultation by detecting antibiotic activity in their urine added to lawns of Bacillus stearothermophilus, Escherichia coli, and Streptococcus pyogenes. In the retrospective (N = 2,058) and prospective studies (N = 1,153), 49.7% (95% confidence interval [CI] = 47.4-52.0) and 36.2% (95% CI = 33.4-38.9), respectively, of Vientiane patients had urinary antibiotic activity detected. The highest frequency of estimated antibiotic pre-treatment was found in patients recruited with suspected central nervous system infections and community-acquired septicemia (both 56.8%). In Vientiane, children had a higher frequency of estimated antibiotic pre-treatment than adults (60.0% versus 46.5%; P | 0.001). Antibiotic use based on patients histories was significantly less frequent than when estimated from urinary antibiotic
Because of high incidence, morbidity, and antimicrobial resistance, Staphylococcus aureus infections are a growing concern for family physicians. Strains of S. aureus that are resistant to vancomycin are now recognized. Increasing incidence of unrecognized community-acquired methicillin-resistant S. aureus infections pose a high risk for morbidity and mortality. Although the incidence of complex S. aureus infections is rising, new antimicrobial agents, including daptomycin and linezolid, are available as treatment. S. aureus is a common pathogen in skin, soft-tissue, catheter-related, bone, joint, pulmonary, and central nervous system infections. S. aureus bacteremias are particularly problematic because of the high incidence of associated complicated infections, including infective endocarditis. Adherence to precautions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, especially handwashing, is suboptimal.

CNS infection is a life-threatening condition in developing countries and Streptococcus pneumoniae has been reported as the most common cause of bacterial meningitis; however, there is limited data on pneumococcal meningitis in Indonesia. This cross-sectional study aimed to isolate and identity S. pneumoniae strains from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) specimens collected as part of routine testing from patients with clinically diagnosed central nervous system infection at a national referral hospital in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2017. S. pneumoniae isolation and identification were performed using conventional culture and molecular tools. Antibiotic susceptibility patterns were monitored through minimum inhibitory concentration testing. From 147 CSF specimens, one S. pneumoniae strain was identified from a patient with bacterial meningitis symptoms. The isolate was serotype 6B (ST5661) and susceptible to 18 antimicrobial agents tested, including penicillin, tetracycline, and the macrolide group. Our data
An 18-year-old woman presented with a progressively worsening headache, photophobia feverishness and vomiting. Three weeks previously she had returned to the UK from a trip to Peru. At presentation, she had clinical signs of meningism. On admission, blood tests showed a mild lymphopenia, with a normal C reactive protein and white cell count. Chest X-ray and CT of the head were normal. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) microscopy was normal. CSF protein and glucose were in the normal range. MRI of the head and cerebral angiography were also normal. Subsequent molecular testing of CSF detected enterovirus RNA by reverse transcriptase PCR. The patients clinical syndrome correlated with her virological diagnosis and no other cause of her symptoms was found. Her symptoms were self-limiting and improved with supportive management. This case illustrates an important example of viral central nervous system infection presenting clinically as meningitis but with normal CSF microscopy.. ...
Until today, classic human astroviruses have not been associated with central nervous system infections in immunocompetent patients. A 16-month-old Caucasian girl presented with repetitive generalized seizures with a 4-day history of watery diarrhea, which had already gradually improved. Initially, the prolonged seizures ceased after systemic midazolam treatment and were thought to be fever associated. However, her mental status remained altered, and after seizure recurrence, she was transferred to our pediatric intensive care unit. Seizure control was achieved by a combination of high-dose levetiracetam and phenobarbital, but she remained unconscious. An electroencephalogram at this time revealed generalized high voltage theta activity. All laboratory analyses, including extended blood and cerebrospinal fluid analyses, and a brain magnetic resonance imaging were normal. On day 4, the child gradually became conscious, but was very agitated and not able to walk. Since an electroencephalogram at this time

Aim - The aim of this study was to undertake a retrospective review of admissions and discharges to the paediatric wards at the National Hospital Guido Valadares, Dili, as the epidemiology of hospitalised children in East Timor cannot be easily understood from the hospital health management information system. Method - Data were sourced from unit registers for 3 years, 2008-2010 inclusive. Demographic characteristics and principal diagnoses were related to the risk of dying using stepwise multivariate logistic regression. Results - There were 5909 children admitted to the wards over the study period and 60% were ,2 years of age. The commonest reasons for admission were lower respiratory tract infections (LRIs) and gastroenteritis (43% and 16%, respectively). Severe malnutrition (MN) was recorded in only 5% of admissions. Overall, 6% of children died, mainly attributed to LRI (28%), central nervous system infections (16%) and MN (11%). Younger age, residence outside of Dili and admission during a ...

PTI-NB rats had decreased weight and length but not detectable disturbances in growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor-1 biosynthesis as compared to control rats. In single bottle taste acceptance tests, PTI-NB rats did not differ from controls and drank normal amounts of all solutions. When offered a choice of solutions in two-bottle taste preference tests, PTI-NB rats exhibited a normal preference for saccharin and a ...
Leaving aside the organic/non-organic debate, the greater exposure we have to pre-packaged and ready-made meals the more susceptible we are to two particularly dangerous chemicals: monosodium glutamate (MSG) and aspartame, an artificial sweetener. MSG, famed for Chinese Restaurant Syndrome is also a flavour enhancer that is added to crisps, packet soups and other processed foods. The effect of MSG in the body has been linked to a large number of diseases such as lupus, cancer, strokes, chronic hepatitis, nervous system infections and neuro-degenerative diseases. 8 Aspartame, an artificial sweetener found in diet drinks and food, soft drinks and sweets has been linked to cancers, headaches, migraines and hyperactivity. top ...
Despite the reservations about the Gloucester papers conclusions,23 and although it only considered patients with meningococcal disease (ignoring all other CNS bacterial and viral infections), its message became inappropriately applied to all patients with suspected CNS infection. Consequently, it would appear that many doctors have stopped undertaking LPs in patients with suspected CNS infection. In our own hospital a four month case note review of 448 acute medical admissions revealed that LP was performed in only 53% of 47 children who had clinical evidence or suspicion of CNS infection, and with no medical contraindications (Kneen R, Solomon T, Appleton R, unpublished observations). None of the patients who underwent LP experienced a neurological deterioration including recognisable cerebral herniation. In addition, only 17 of the 25 patients who had LP, CSF analysis was incomplete or inadequate-for example, no measurement of CSF glucose or protein levels, no simultaneous measurement of ...

Clonal VGII subtypes (outbreak strains) of Cryptococcus gattii have caused an outbreak in the US Pacific Northwest since 2004. Outbreak-associated infections occur equally in male and female patients (median age 56 years) and usually cause pulmonary disease in persons with underlying medical conditions. Since 2009, a total of 25 C. gattii infections, 23 (92%) caused by non-outbreak strain C. gattii, have been reported from 8 non-Pacific Northwest states. Sixteen (64%) patients were previously healthy, and 21 (84%) were male; median age was 43 years (range 15-83 years). Ten patients who provided information reported no past-year travel to areas where C. gattii is known to be endemic. Nineteen (76%) patients had central nervous system infections; 6 (24%) died. C. gattii infection in persons without exposure to known disease-endemic areas suggests possible endemicity in the United States outside the outbreak-affected region; these infections appear to differ in clinical and demographic characteristics from
Listeria monocytogenes is a rare pathogen that principally affects neonates, pregnant women and immunosuppressed patients.

See question 15 for ABX options! The evidence is poor for steroids in adult bacterial meningitis, but Rosens recommends it. Dont use steroids in children though (unless perhaps the child is unvaccinated and S. pneumoniae is highly suspected).. "In adult bacterial meningitis, an absolute risk reduction of 10% for unfavorable outcome is seen when dexamethasone is given either 15 minutes before or concomitantly with antibiotics and continued for 4 days at 6-hour intervals. This benefit is greatest in those with S. pneumoniae. Despite uncertainty from conflicting trials, we recommend an initial dose of dexamethasone 10 mg IV prior to or concurrent with empirical antibiotics in patients with suspected community acquired meningitis and without signs of septic shock. Given the potential adverse effects of high dose corticosteroids in patients with septic shock, the use of low dose hydrocortisone at 50 mg IV instead of high dose dexamethasone is a reasonable approach, although clear benefit has not be ...

Her laboratory studies are summarized in . Thereafter, HSV-1 may be reactivated and can cause usually self-limiting orolabial lesions in immunocompetent individuals. Infectious virus is no longer detected in tissues about 2 weeks after infection, but some viruses establish latency by maintaining their genomes in neurons of sensory ganglia. Critical scientific advances over the past decades have enhanced our understanding of the natural history and pathogenesis of HSV, and provide the framework for the development of novel prevention and treatment strategies. 25. Progression of her disease prior to referral appears to contribute to the administered treatment inefficacy. Other features of the Mayo system include type-specific genotypic identification of HSV and the potential for determination of drug resistance by DNA sequencing..

Opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome (OMS) is a rare condition that includes chaotic multidirectional saccadic eye movements associated with myoclonus and ataxia. In adults, it is usually considered to be an autoimmune disease occurring either in a paraneoplastic context or after central nervous system infection. We report the case of a patient who presented with the classic features of OMS as a manifestation of acute Borrelia burgdorferi infection that was shown both on serum and cerebrospinal fluid examination. The outcome was favourable after prolonged antibiotic treatment. Lyme disease could be added to the list of aetiologies to be screened in OMS, as it would allow effective treatment and avoidance of unnecessary investigations.. ...
According to recent investigations neopterin (a pyrazinopyrimidine derivative) is a biochemical marker that reflects the activity of the proinflammatory immunocellular system of the synovial tissue in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Interferon gamma, derived from antigen activated T lymphocytes, stimulates macrophages to synthesise and release neopterin into the culture supernatant in vitro. To extend this in vitro model to a clinical level a sensitive new radioimmunoassay technique was used to measure neopterin concentrations in the synovial fluid (SF) of 17 patients with active RA, nine with osteoarthritis, and six with acute gout, and in that of 12 controls undergoing meniscectomy. The SF neopterin concentrations were significantly higher in patients with RA than in the other groups of patients, particularly the controls. Multivariant analysis showed that SF neopterin concentrations correspond better with the systemic inflammatory activity of RA than with the local disease activity of the knee ...

Toxoplasmic encephalitis (encephalitis caused by Toxoplasma gondii) is the most frequent cause of focal central nervous system infection in patients with AIDS. If untreated, the encephalitis is fatal. At present, it is standard practice to give a combination of pyrimethamine and sulfadiazine to treat toxoplasmic encephalitis. The high frequency of sulfonamide-induced toxicity in AIDS patients often makes completion of a full course of therapy difficult. There is some information that high doses of parenteral (such as by injection) clindamycin used with pyrimethamine may be as effective as pyrimethamine plus sulfadiazine in the management of the acute phase of toxoplasmic encephalitis in patients with AIDS. Administration of parenteral clindamycin for prolonged periods of time, however, is costly, requires hospitalization, and is inconvenient for the patient. There is some indication that treatment of AIDS patients with acute toxoplasmic encephalitis with oral clindamycin may be effective. ...
