[Presence of Bejing genotype among Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains in two centres of the Region Metropolitana of Chile].
Rev Chilena Infectol
PUBLISHED: 04-18-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Genotyping of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (cMtb) allows us to know geographically predominant lineages. Some lineages spread more rapidly and are associated with multidrug resistance, particularly Beijing, which has been reported in Latin America (Peru). There is little information about this topic in Chile and there are no reports of the presence of the Beijing genotype.

It is currently unknown which is the prevalence of latent tuberculosis infection in healthcare workers in Chile, but this group has been described as at higher risk of developing active tuberculosis than general population.

Endemic scrub typhus-like illness, Chile.
Emerging Infect. Dis.
PUBLISHED: 09-06-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
We report a case of scrub typhus in a 54-year-old man who was bitten by several terrestrial leeches during a trip to Chiloé Island in southern Chile in 2006. A molecular sample, identified as related to Orientia tsutsugamushi based on the sequence of the16S rRNA gene, was obtained from a biopsy specimen of the eschar on the patients leg. Serologic analysis showed immunoglobulin G conversion against O. tsutsugamushi whole cell antigen. This case and its associated molecular analyses suggest that an Orientia-like agent is present in the Western Hemisphere that can produce scrub typhus-like illness. The molecular analysis suggests that the infectious agent is closely related, although not identical, to members of the Orientia sp. from Asia.

[Neurosyphilis in the patients with and without HIV infection: description and comparison of two historical cohorts].

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Neurosyphilis follows a more aggressive and different clinical course in HIV-infected patients compared to patients with normal immunity. Two historical series of patients with a diagnosis of neurosyphilis between 1995 and 2008 were compared: they included a group of 15 patients with y and 28 patients without HIV infection. Probability of neurosyphilis in patients with positive serum VDRL was increased in patients infected with HIV compared to HIV negative patients (OR: 62.37 IC:95% (32.1-119.1) p value:< 0,001). Predominant clinical manifestations in neurosyphilis in the HIV negative group were ocular abnormality, vascular encephalic and spinal cord lesions. In the HIV positive group, they were fever, ocular abnormalities and headache. There were no differences in cerebrospinal fluid characteristics between both groups. Neurosyphilis was diagnosed even in patients with blood VDRL of < 1:32, that happened in 17.8% of the HIV positive patients with blood and in 60% of t he HIV negative patients. Penicillin sodium given at dose >or= than 18.000.000 IU/day IV during 14 days was the most common treatment. In patients with clinical neurosyphilis, 93% of HIV negative group, and 54.2% of HIV positive group had persistent neurological after-effects. Three HIV positive patients died due to causes not related to neurosyphilis.

[Tuberculosis in HIV positive individuals].
Rev Chilena Infectol
PUBLISHED: 06-16-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Tuberculosis (TB) is worldwide one of the leading causes of death in HIV infected individuals. In Chile, TB rates have fallen dramatically in the general population and new cases are being progressively restricted to high risk groups, particularly immunosuppressed individuals. In these patients diagnostic tests have decreased sensitivity and TB frequently evolves to disseminated and rapidly progressive forms. Besides, the concurrent treatment of HIV infection and TB adds further toxicities and the possibility of significant interactions. In this article we review the particularities and advances in diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of TB in the HIV infected patient.

[Bacillary angiomatosis].
Rev Med Chil
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Bacillary angiomatosis is an unusual infectious disease, with angioproliferative lesions, typical of immunocompromised patients. It is caused by Bartonella quintana and Bartonella henselae, two infectious agents of the genus Bartonella, which trigger variable clinical manifestations, including cutaneous vascular and purpuric lesions, and regional lymphadenopathy, and even a systemic disease with visceral involvement. We report a 38-year-old HIV positive male presenting with a history of six months of cutaneous growing purple angiomatous lesions, located also in nasal fossae, rhi-nopharynx and larynx. The skin biopsy was compatible with bacillary angiomatosis. Polymerase chain reaction of a tissue sample showed homology with B. quintana strain Toulouse. The patient was treated with azithromycin and ciprofloxacin with a favorable evolution.

[A comparative study for adenosine deaminase and anti-antigen A-60 antibodies detection for the diagnosis of tuberculous meningitis].
Rev Chilena Infectol
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Diagnosis of tuberculous meningitis (TBM) is hampered by the lack of rapid and accurate diagnostic tools. We evaluated the immunological response to Mycobacterium tuberculosis anti-A60 antibodies in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in comparison to adenosine deaminase (ADA) determination, for the diagnosis of TBM.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
