I read with great interest the recent case report by Fath-Ordoubadi et al.1 This is an excellent report and the authors are to be congratulated for their good work. They have clearly demonstrated their clinical wisdom. They confirmed the diagnosis through a biopsy as there is no specific clinical or radiological criterion for the diagnosis of tuberculoma of the brain.. These patients usually present with symptoms and signs suggesting an intracranial space occupying lesion. There is generally no extracranial clinical features to suggest the diagnosis of active pulmonary or extrapulmonary tuberculosis nor any definite history of previous pulmonary infection.2 Biopsy of the mass lesion remains the scientific ideal for establishing the diagnosis as in the reported case. This should and must be the approach in parts of the world where tuberculosis is rare, although the procedure is invasive and is not without risk.3 4 We treated a group of 24 consecutive patients including 14 reported during a 10 ...

Resection operations were performed in 261 patients (males - 155, females - 106) with first-found destructive tuberculosis after 3-6 month long ineffective chemo-therapeutic treatment. The majority of patients (220 - 84.3%) were in young age - from 20 to 40 years old. After a course of chemotherapy, infiltrative tuberculosis with lysis was diagnosed in 12 patients (4.5%), tuberculoma - in 101 (38.7%), fibrous-cavernous - in 148 (56.8%). Mycobacteria of tuberculosis in sputum were observed in 98 patients (37.5%). Segmental lung resection was performed in 112 patients (43.0%) enucleation of tuberculoma - in 13 (5.0%), lobectomy - in 100 (38.3%), combined resection - in 8 (3.0%), and pulmonectomy - in 27 (10.7%). After operation, bronchial fistula and pleural empyema developed in 8 patients (3.1%), early re-activation of the tubercular process - in 10 (3.8%), pneumonia of the operated lung - in 5 (1.9%). These complications in 5 patients were eliminated by therapeutic treatment, in 9 - by repeated ...

Choroiditis is the most common ocular manifestation in patients with pulmonary and systemic tuberculosis [3]. A history of miliary tuberculosis, clinical examination, angiography, and radiological investigations led to the diagnosis of choroidal tuberculoma in our patient. In the absence of definite evidence, our diagnosis was presumptive and was based on presentation, systemic evaluation, and response to treatment. Choroidal tubercles are usually unilateral but may be solitary or multiple lesions, yellowish with indefinite borders located in the posterior pole, and may vary in their presentation with features such as associated hemorrhage, striae, or exudative retinal detachment [4]. Generally, retinal vessels overlying these lesions appear normal but exudation and hemorrhage have been reported [5]. Choroidal tuberculoma was found to have very little associated inflammation or retinal change in a patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome [6]. It has been reported in association with ...

Abstract:. Toxoplasma gondii is an intra cellular protozoan. it is the one of the most common focal neurological disease in patients with HIV/AIDS. Because of defective cell mediated immunity, patients are at a higher risk of developing toxoplasma encephalitis. A 50 year male presented with fever with altered sensorium and focal neurological deficit. An imageology shows multiple ring enhancing lesions in basal ganglia and subcortical regions. Toxoplasma serology revealed raised IgG antibody levels and positive PCR test for Toxoplasma organism. Based on MRI and positive serology a diagnosis of cerebral toxoplasmosis was made.. ...
The imaging modality of choice for imaging patients with Tolosa-Hunt remains MRI, although useful information may be gleaned from other modalities. On non-contrast enhanced CT (NECT), there are no specific findings to suggest the diagnosis; however, this modality may be of some value in differentiating the lesion from en plaque meningioma. On contrast enhanced CT (CECT), salient imaging findings include enhancing, thickened meninges or a curvilinear appearance of a single meningeal region. As aforementioned, MRI remains the primary modality for diagnosis of Tolosa-Hunt syndrome, and each sequence may provide critical information required to make the diagnosis. On T1WI, one may find focal thickening of the meninges that is isointense to gray matter. On T2WI, lesions are characterized as iso- to hypo intense regions of focal meningeal thickening, which may be more hypo intense as they become more fibrotic. FLAIR is of little help in making the diagnosis, but it is unlikely to demonstrate focal ...
The greatest problem that can happen to a patient with tuberculosis (TB) is that the organisms become resistant to two or more of the standard drugs. In contrast to drug sensitive (DS) tuberculosis, its multi-drug resistant (MDR) form is much more difficult and expensive to recover from. Thus, early detection of the drug resistance (DR) status is of great importance for effective treatment. The most commonly used methods of DR detection are either expensive or take too much time (up to several months). Therefore, there is a need for quick and at the same time cheap methods of DR detection. One of the possible approaches for this task is based on Computed Tomography (CT) image analysis. Another challenging task is automatic detection of TB types (TBT) using CT volumes. In this subtask, five types of tuberculosis are considered: Infiltrative, Focal, Tuberculoma, Miliary and Fibro-cavernous. Lung lesions have different appearance, size and pattern depending on the TB type.. Differences compared to ...
James Parkinson noted: "A diseased state of the medulla spinalis, in that part which is contained in the canal, formed by the superior cervical vertebrae, and extending, as the disease proceeds, to the medulla oblongata . . .is the proximate cause."1 In the late 19th century, because knowledge of the pathophysiology of the basal ganglia was imprecise, Gowers and others implicated the motor cortex as the source of Parkinsons disease. Edouard Brissaud (a neurologists neurologist) in 1894 thought that the site of Parkinsons disease must be peduncular or subthalamic, rejecting prevalent theories that it was muscular or a neurosis. He reported a parkinsonian syndrome caused by a tuberculoma of the substantia nigra and concluded.2 "The locus niger might well be its anatomical substratum.". In a vital paper, Tretiakoff in 1919 examined the brains of nine parkinsonian patients. He was the first to state that substantia nigra lesions were important in both Parkinsons disease and in postencephalitic ...

Downloadable! We use a multinominal logit model to examine the determinants of plot abandonment (unintentional fallows) and long fallows (intentional fallows) in order to propose policy interventions that lead to optimal and sustainable management of land use systems in Kigezi highlands. Household factors such as age, and post primary education positively influenced farmers decision to abandon plots. Therefore, more fallows and abandoned terraces were common with older farmers compared to younger ones. However, farm size and household type had no significant influence on abandonment of plots. Plot variables such as slope and plot distance had the expected positive signs while soil fertility had a significant negative sign as predicted. Two types of interventions are recommended. Those aimed at highly cultivable, moderate slopes and those aimed at uncultivable and fragile areas. For the former, the probability of adoption and intensity of use of appropriate agrobased interventions is likely to be very

Extracted from text ... Introduction Intracranial tuberculosis is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in developing countries where tuberculosis is endemic.1 In the central nervous system tuberculosis manifests as cerebritis, cerebral abscess, tuberculoma, and tuberculous meningitis (TBM).1-5 TBM is thought to arise from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) seeding of a ruptured pial or subependymal granuloma.2-5 Tuberculomata result from haematogenous dissemination and histologically are granulomas with central areas of caseous necrosis.2-5 Tuberculomata may develop whilst patients are on treatment for TB.6 The co-occurrence of intracranial tuberculoma and TBM is well recognized. 2-5 Medical therapy is effective for both forms, with a high cure rate in ..
Transfer factor was administered to a patient with progressive primary tuberculosis who failed to respond to antituberculous therapy and in whom a defect in cellular immunity to tuberculous infection was shown by in-vivo and in-vitro studies of cell-mediated immunity. The administration of transfer factor to this patient resulted in the development of immunologic reactivity, which was accompanied by dramatic improvement of her clinical condition. This observation strongly suggests that transfer factor in conjunction with antituberculous therapy was instrumental in the resolution of the patients infection. ...
Large populations of macrophages are a prominent feature of tuberculous granulomas, yet there are many unanswered questions surrounding the spatial organization of macrophage subsets in granulomas and whether macrophages have microenvironment-specific homeostatic or bactericidal functions. Much of what we know about granuloma macrophages comes from animal models that may not represent the spectrum of pathology seen in humans or has been derived from cells removed from the context of the granuloma. To address these questions, we used immunohistochemistry to clarify the interplay of microenvironment and macrophage biology by identifying macrophage subsets and arginase and NOS expression in granulomas from cynomolgus macaques, a nonhuman primate that recapitulates human TB (4). We found that granulomas have macrophage subsets that are stratified into pro- and anti-inflammatory regions with the implication that this organization may limit immunopathogenic antimicrobial activity to bacteria-rich ...

Tumors of the spinal cord and cauda equina show a wide spectrum of histology and require careful diagnosis and treatment. Primary intradural extramedullary Ewing sarcoma (IEES) is extremely rare, and initial imaging and clinical findings for this tumor mimic those of benign intradural spinal tumors. The present report describes a case of a 35‑year‑old woman who presented with IEES with meningeal seeding, and the literature on the management and clinical course of these tumors was reviewed. An examination revealed right‑side leg dominant rapidly progressive hypoesthesia and motor deficits. MRI identified intradural tumors at the T12‑L1 and L4‑5 levels. Growth and an increase in the number of intradural tumors occurred over 3 weeks. Gadolinium‑contrast T1‑weighted MRI revealed diffusely enhanced signals for tumorous lesions with meningeal seeding in the cervical and thoracic spinal cord. Excision of a tumor at T12‑L1 was performed to alleviate the symptoms and to make a histologic ...

Methods: MT T1 and conventional spin echo MR imaging was performed in six patients with intracranial tuberculomas. The tuberculomas were excised as a single mass and ex vivo MR imaging was performed using the same protocol. The gross histopathology was compared with in vivo imaging with respect to the MR signal intensity (MT ratio) in all six specimens. Results: The size of the tuberculomas was larger on MT T1-weighted images compared to T2-weighted images and matched the gross ...
Mycobacterium tuberculosis is the pathogenic bacterium that causes tuberculosis (TB), one of the most lethal infectious diseases in the world. The only vaccine against TB is minimally protective, and multi-drug resistant TB necessitates new therapeutics to treat infection. Developing new therapies requires a better understanding of the complex host immune response to infection, including dissecting the processes leading to formation of granulomas, the dense cellular lesions associated with TB. In this work we pair experimental and computational modeling studies to explore cytokine regulation in the context of TB. We use our next-generation hybrid multi-scale model of granuloma formation (GranSim) to capture molecular, cellular, and tissue scale dynamics of granuloma formation. We identify TGF-β1 as a major inhibitor of cytotoxic T-cell effector function in granulomas. Deletion of TGF-β1 from the system results in improved bacterial clearance and lesion sterilization. We also identify a novel

Data Availability StatementAll relevant data are within the paper. or NTB. Finally, the circulating levels of all of the angiogenic elements examined were considerably reduced following effective chemotherapy. Conclusion As a result, our data demonstrate that PTB can be connected with elevated degrees of circulating angiogenic elements, probably reflecting vascular and endothelial dysfunction. Furthermore, a few of these circulating angiogenic elements could confirm useful as biomarkers to monitor disease intensity, bacterial burden and therapeutic responses. Intro Granulomatous inflammation can be characteristic of several autoimmune and infectious illnesses [1,2]. The tuberculous granuloma, a central feature in mycobacterial disease, may be the hallmark framework of tuberculosis (TB) disease and disease [1,2]. These granulomas are often seen as a the concomitant advancement of hypoxia, which functions as stimulus for vascularization [3]. Vascularization in animal types of TB offers been proven ...

FINAL DIAGNOSIS: INTRAVENTRICULAR SCHWANNOMA (WHO GRADE I).. DISCUSSION:. Schwannomas account for up to 8% of intracranial neoplasms (14). The vast majority of cases arise from the cranial nerves, with the 8th nerve being most commonly involved (14). Rare cases of schwannomas may develop as primarily meningeal, intracerebral or intraventricular tumors (14). In a review of the literature, we found that only few cases of intraventricular Schwann cell tumors have been reported so far (1,4-9,12,13). These tumors were generally located in the lateral or fourth ventricles. To our knowledge, the tumor of our patient is the first reported schwannoma of the third ventricle.. The origin of intraventricular schwannomas is unknown. However, similar to the hypotheses about the histogenesis of spinal intramedullary (3) and intracerebral schwannomas (11), which are slightly more common than intraventricular schwannomas, different possibilities may be considered. Schwannomas may arise from the sympathetic nerve ...

Sarcoidosis has evolved from the position of a disease of relative obscurity in the tropics, towards an increasing recognition and reporting from India and around. From the time sarcoidosis has been described, there has always been a belief that the disease is in some way related to tuberculosis. However, the inability to identify mycobacteria by histologic staining or culture from pathologic tissues continues to be one of the strongest arguments against a potential role for mycobacteria. Of late, molecular analysis (such as polymerase chain reaction [PCR] techniques) for nucleic acids of the putative agents serves as an alternative method for isolating fastidious organisms. A recent meta-analysis suggested a 30% prevalence rate of mycobacterial DNA in sarcoid samples but the individual studies reported detection rates from 0-50%. Moreover, most of these studies were published from countries with low prevalence for tuberculosis. If indeed mycobacteria are etiologically linked to sarcoidosis then ...

Quadriceps Tendon Rupture and Contralateral Patella Tendon Avulsion Post Primary Bilateral Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Case Report
This page includes the following topics and synonyms: Central Nervous System Tuberculosis, Tuberculous Meningitis, Intracranial Tuberculoma, Spinal Tuberculous Arachnoiditis.
Central nervous system tuberculosis (CNS-TB) takes three clinical forms: meningitis (TBM), intracranial tuberculoma, and spinal arachnoiditis. TBM predominates in the western world and presents as a subacute to chronic meningitis syndrome with a prodrome of malaise, fever, and headache progressing to altered mentation and focal neurologic signs, followed by stupor, coma, and death within five to eight weeks of onset. The CSF formula typically shows a lymphocytic pleocytosis, and low glucose and high protein concentrations. Diagnosis rests on serial samples of CSF for smear and culture, combined with CSF PCR. Brain CT and MRI aid in diagnosis, assessment for complications, and monitoring of the clinical course. In a patient with compatible clinical features, the combination of meningeal enhancement and any degree of hydrocephalus is strongly suggestive of TBM. Vasculitis leading to infarcts in the basal ganglia occurs commonly and is a major determinant of morbidity and mortality. Treatment is most
The exaggerated immune response to the subclinical opportunistic microorganisms or their antigens can be found in HIV-1 infected patients after receiving antiretroviral (ARV) therapy. We report a case of unmasking tuberculosis-associated immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (TB-IRIS) in the HIV-1 infected patient who had no previous history of mycobacterial infection. She had tuberculosis of intestines, peritoneum and mesenteric glands within 2 months of ARV. However, her sputum acidfast bacilli stain, sputum, blood and cervical lymph node aspiration cultures for mycobacterium were negative. Her CD4 cell count increased of from 46 cells/μL at baseline before receiving ARV to 155 cells/μL at month 6 of ARV. In addition, her plasma pro-inflammatory (IFN-γ and TNF-α) and anti-inflammatory (IL-10) cytokine measurement was supported the occurrence of immune restoration reaction. Therefore, the changing in these cytokine profiles may be an important marker of developing unmasking TB-IRIS ...
