Brain MRI was performed in an immunocompromized febrile and lethargic patient, revealing an asymmetric bilateral temporal lobe involvement, strongly suggestive of herpetic encephalitis. Nevertheless, PCR in CSF for Listeria monocytogens was positive. This case implies that Listeria might be...
Pulmonary cryptococcosis is often noted in immunocompromized patients, especially in HIV-seropositive patients and post-transplant patients. Only a few case reports and small-scale studies on pulmonary cryptococcosis in immunocompetent patients have been published in the English literature....
Defence against Neisseria meningitidis involves complement-mediated bactericidal activity. Factor H (fH) down-regulates complement activation. A putatively functional single-nucleotide-polymorphism (SNP) exists within a presumed nuclear-factor-kappa-B responsive element (NF-kB) in the fH gene...
In the absence of egg excretion, laboratory diagnosis of recently acquired schistosomiasis is dependent on serology. 42 of 83 Swedish adventure tourists to sub-Saharan Africa had serum anti-schistosome antibodies indicating recent infection. There is little doubt regarding the specificity and...
A 15-year-old girl developed a persistent bacteraemia with Klebsiella pneumoniae accompanied by systemic symptoms including high fever and rigors after appendectomy. Extensive laboratory and imaging work-up, including tests for an intra-vascular source of infection, did not reveal the origin of...
The objective of this prospective study was to investigate if Chlamydophila pneumoniae (Cp)-specific DNA and mRNA are present in tissue samples from the wall of aorta ascendens in patients undergoing by-pass surgery for coronary artery disease (CAD) that includes stable angina pectoris (SAP, 25...
We observed acute HBV superinfection on chronic HCV genotype 1 infection in a 29-y-old injection drug user. On presentation HCV-RNA was already negative and remained so for at least 7 months thereafter. We speculate that clearance of HCV-HBV coinfected cells by HBV-specific immunity might be a...
To further understand the molecular and clinical epidemiology of tuberculosis in the Toronto Somali community, molecular fingerprinting using IS6110 restriction fragment length polymorphism typing or spoligotyping was performed on M. tuberculosis isolates obtained from Somali-Canadians who...
Trichuris trichiura is a worldwide problem affecting millions of people. We report an unusual case of intussusception caused by T. trichiura that mimics acute appendicitis. The literature on T. trichiura associated intussusception is reviewed.
