  • Lyme
  • Play media Lyme disease can affect multiple body systems and produce a broad range of symptoms. (wikipedia.org)
  • The classic sign of early local infection with Lyme disease is a circular, outwardly expanding rash called erythema chronicum migrans (EM), which occurs at the site of the tick bite three to 32 days after the tick bite. (wikipedia.org)
  • spinal cord
  • From the fourth ventricle, the fluid passes into the subarachnoid space through four openings - the central canal of the spinal cord, the median aperture, and the two lateral apertures. (wikipedia.org)
  • Childhood
  • Although HPeV is typically associated with disease in young infants, this study suggests that HPeV is the emerging pathogen of CNS infection with neurologic symptoms in older childhood. (confex.com)
  • Humans
  • Researchers have detected the virus in spinal fluid from 4 percent of 642 patients with central nervous system infections of unknown cause, and in an average of 58 percent of fecal samples from pigs and poultry, suggesting animals may serve as reservoirs for transmission to humans. (medindia.net)
  • In the Americas, bat bites are the most common source of rabies infections in humans, and less than 5% of cases are from dogs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Oropouche fever is a tropical viral infection transmitted by biting midges and mosquitoes from the blood of sloths to humans. (wikipedia.org)
  • symptoms
  • 3) Neurological symptoms and signs start within days to weeks after a viral infection or immunisation. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • Only six people have survived a rabies infection after showing symptoms, and this was with extensive treatment known as the Milwaukee protocol. (wikipedia.org)
  • It refers to a set of symptoms in the later stages of an infection in which the person has difficulty swallowing, shows panic when presented with liquids to drink, and cannot quench his or her thirst. (wikipedia.org)
  • cryptococcosis
  • It is also prescribed for systemic infections, such as aspergillosis, candidiasis, and cryptococcosis, where other antifungal drugs are inappropriate or ineffective. (wikipedia.org)
  • pathogen
  • The virus was not detected at all in samples from patients with non-infectious conditions of the central nervous system, like multiple sclerosis, a fact that argues that the virus could well be a human pathogen. (medindia.net)
  • susceptible
  • It is generally not active against Enterobacter species, and its use should be avoided in the treatment of Enterobacter infections, even if the isolate appears susceptible, because of the emergence of resistance. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • This study was performed to determine the prevalence of HPeV CNS infection and its clinical features in children from Korea. (confex.com)
  • Although there is variation with respect to geography and tick vector, the clinical manifestations are similar, and treatment of these infections is identical. (prohealth.com)
  • With the support of a Wellcome Trust Training Fellowship he studied central nervous system infections at the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit in Vietnam (1994-7). (wikipedia.org)
  • commonly
  • It covers almost all CNS infections commonly seen in children across the world including those in developed and resource poor countries. (wiley.com)
  • redness
  • The most common sign of infection is an expanding area of redness on the skin, known as erythema migrans, that begins at the site of a tick bite about a week after it has occurred. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, partial clearing is uncommon, and the bull's-eye pattern more often involves central redness. (wikipedia.org)
  • antibiotic
  • In both the popular press and the scientific literature, linezolid has been called a "reserve antibiotic"-one that should be used sparingly so that it will remain effective as a drug of last resort against potentially intractable infections. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgical
  • We discuss Cairns' important wartime and subsequent contributions to antibiosis in CNS infection and include drawings by Audrey Arnott illustrating the surgical techniques used to treat abscesses at the time. (ox.ac.uk)
  • different
  • the different types of opportunistic infections. (coursera.org)
  • Through phylogenetic analysis of nucleocapsid genes in different oropouche virus strains, it has been revealed that there are three unique genotypes (I, II, III) that are currently spreading through Central and South America. (wikipedia.org)
  • These swellings represent different components of the central nervous system: the prosencephalon, mesencephalon and rhombencephalon. (wikipedia.org)

  • occurs
  • Addiction is a disorder of the brain's reward system which arises through transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms and occurs over time from chronically high levels of exposure to an addictive stimulus (e.g., morphine, cocaine, sexual intercourse, gambling, etc. (wikipedia.org)
